(March 21st to April 19th)
Because they were the one person who made you actually want to slow down for a second. Not slow down your sense of adventure or your love of life – they just made you slow down enough to appreciate your life, to enjoy the little things, to remember that it’s important to not always be chasing after the next thing. They were that one person who taught you how to just be.
(April 20th to May 21st)
Because they were the only person who made you feel more secure and happy and peaceful in your relationship, rather than anxious and panicked and worried about it constantly. With them, instead of struggling with jealousy or adequacy or insecurity while you were in love, you simply felt joyful, cared for, and loved.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Because they were the only person you’ve ever dated with whom you felt safe enough to truly, truly be yourself. You weren’t worried about showing them your best side or trying to look cool or seeming carefree and light all the time. Instead, you could just be every aspect of yourself, both the good and the bad.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Because being in a relationship with them finally made you feel truly appreciated. For once in your love life, you weren’t worried about being taken advantage of or taken for granted. You were just able to be your loving and openhearted self with someone who accepted that love and gave theirs right back to you, rather than someone who just wanted to take, take, take.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Because they gave you a sense of calm, belonging, and steadiness that no one else ever had before. Typically, relationships only make you feel more unhappy, anxious, and nervous. But with this person, they were always there to encourage you and reassure you, they could always tell what you were thinking, and they always knew how to calm you down and comfort you when you were feeling worried or isolated or suffocated from your own thoughts.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Because they loved just letting you be you, without feeling intimidated or frustrated by it. They weren’t overwhelmed with your social life, the amount of friends you had, or your enthusiastic and charming nature. Instead, they were happy to just sit back, let you do your thing, maintain their own life, and love you for who you are.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Because they knew how to challenge you and how to call you on your crap. You’ve always been such a powerful and magnetic presence, but that has sometimes caused you to be more controlling and stubborn than you intended. But this person never let you walk over them or get away with things – they always called you out, they stuck up for themselves, and they made you feel like you had finally met your match.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Because this person could connect with you effortlessly and instantly. They loved your light and outgoing side, but they knew how to go below the surface level with you and how to connect with you on a much deeper and more vulnerable level. It felt like they brought out a very introspective and contemplative side of you that most people never got to see.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Because this person knew how to love you for who you are while also bringing a sense of fun, joy, and silliness into your life that you hadn’t seen or made time for in a long time. They appreciated and understood your ambition and your focus, but they also could easily make you laugh, remind you to take a break, and be a lightening presence in your life.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Because they were the only person who could ever get you to open up. Rather than go back to your comfort zone of detachment and emotional isolation, they were the one person you felt safe enough to be vulnerable with, to talk about your feelings with, and to truly open your heart up to.
(February 19th to March 20th)
Because they breathed a sense of new life and energy into what had become a very routine and unchanging lifestyle for you. You definitely appreciate your comfort, which isn’t a bad thing, but this person came into your life like a whirlwind and dared you to live a little more on the edge, to try things that were scary but exciting, and to be willing to fall hard. No one else had ever made you feel like that before. [tc-mark[
