Your ambition and your strong work ethic are two of your best characteristics, but the way you’ll fall in love in 2018 is by meeting someone who reminds you that there is so much life to be lived outside of work. They’ll be 100% supportive of your career and your goals, and will only cheer you on rather than getting in your way – but they will also remind you that it’s important to look up from your screen, open your eyes, experience the world around you, and remember that work is important, but so are things like family, friendships, self-care, joy, and silliness.
You will fall in love unexpectedly – with a person you were never initially into but who, with a relaxed confidence, slowly garnered your interest. It will be someone who enjoyed your bright and sparkling disposition from the start, but who also challenged you to open up further for once, and encouraged you to not be afraid to let go and simply let yourself fall.
You’ll fall in love in 2018 when you meet someone who finally takes care of you for once. You’re always the one putting everybody first, taking care of everyone else, and never using a spare moment to think about yourself or to prioritize your own needs. So when you meet that person who sees you as someone they want to make happy and take care of and do things for – instead of looking at you as what you can do for them – you’re going to fall hard, and you’re going to fall fast.
As someone who is really in tune with your own emotions and of what you want, you’re going to find yourself in a relationship with someone who makes you feel like you no longer have to apologize for having strong feelings. In the past, you’ve always felt a little self-conscious of how open and certain you were about yourself and your wants, but in 2018, you’ll finally find yourself with someone who loves that about you, and who makes you feel more like yourself than you ever have with anyone else.
As someone who is highly motivated, focused, and constantly on the go, you always have a list a mile long of things you want to do, places you want to travel, goals you want to accomplish. But in 2018, you’re going to fall in love with someone who actually decreases your restlessness, instead of making it worse. In the past, you’ve always felt weighed down or held back by significant others – worrying that they’re going to keep you from moving forward or distract you from your goals. But this person is going to be the one who finally makes you feel like you have both – like you can be your own version of ‘settled down’ where you’re in love and have a partner and are incredibly happy, while still growing and challenging yourself and pursuing new things every day.
In 2018, you’ll finally find yourself in that relationship you’ve always wanted – with the person who is sensitive and loving and gentle, without ever making you feel bored or disinterested or antsy. They’re going to be someone who understands that despite your great sense of humor, you can also be really sensitive and feel hurt very easily; and they’re going to be someone who makes you feel like you could talk to them about absolutely anything without the conversation ever growing dull or colorless.
As friendly and magnetic as you are, and as effortlessly as you make friends, you actually have a very hard time opening up and making yourself available for romantic relationships. So in 2018, the way you’ll fall in love is by meeting someone you never expected to fall for – but who ends up totally fascinating you with their ability to make you feel instantly comfortable and to only ever feel energized and invigorated around them (rather than exhausted or socially tired).
You will end up with a person who actually stands up to you and doesn’t let you get away with everything. They will understand that you have a natural lean towards leadership and confidence, and they will both love this and respect it; but they will also call you out when you need to be called out, and they will stand up for themselves, and they will always make sure the relationship is 50-50 rather than allowing it to be something where you run the show.
In 2018, you will fall in love with someone who makes you more emotional than you’ve ever been with anyone else (but in a good way). In the past, your sense of self-preservation has lead you to be detached from and/or critical of your significant others – always subconsciously looking for ways to chase them away before you have a chance to truly get attached. But in 2018, you’ll fall for someone who makes you willing to take risks and makes you want to not be afraid of your own feelings – because being with them will wake you up and make you feel so alive.
As someone who is very self-possessed and has a health sense of self-esteem, you will find yourself with someone who only makes you feel more and more like yourself, instead of making you feel like you’re losing your sense of self by being with them. They will encourage you to do your own thing, to have your own life outside of them, and to figure out how the two of you can be a team together while also putting in time to figure out who you are as individuals.
In 2018, you will fall in love with a person who truly feels on your level. You’ve always had a fast mind with a lot of ideas, and have struggled in the past to learn how to let another person in because you’ve been protective of your sense of self. But this person will finally feel like someone who can keep up with you – somebody who can handle your energy, who gets you without you having to explain yourself, and who fully loves you without being dependent and totally reliant on you.
In the new year, you will fall in love with a person who bursts through your tendency to think and love in a very controlled and logical way – and someone who turns your world upside down in the best way. They will adore your sense of humor and will always give you the space you need, but they will also show you how to live in the moment, they will never be intimidated by your temper, and they will show you how to think with your gut and your heart instead of only relying on your brain.
