Relationships aren’t easy – they take dedication, devotion and A LOT of hard work!
Even if you believe you are putting your best foot forward, setting yourself, and your partner, up for a life of happy, romantic bliss, there are some personality flaws that may be sabotaging your happily ever after. Read on to learn why you struggle with relationships based on your zodiac.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
As an Aries, you are spontaneous and adventurous. You live for change and excitement, and become bored very easily. If things start to become routine, or settle into a ‘comfort zone’ then you begin to feel extremely uneasy, causing you to fall into a self-destructive spiral in your relationship.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You are extremely closed off from the world, keeping your emotions and vulnerabilities well guarded. Your partner will try to break through this wall that you have built, however very few will ever be able to break through to the real you. You are also extremely stubborn and set in your ways, and will not tolerate alternatives. This can make it very hard on your partner.
Gemini May 21-June 20)
A Gemini will often be seen as robotic due to the fact you tend to leave emotion out of your mechanical daily routine. This causes many of the people around you, including your partner, to see you as cold and distant. If you wish to make a relationship work, you will have to put a serious effort into working on your emotional intelligence.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancer is the most sensitive and emotional of the signs, which is both a huge strength and a significant weakness when looking at relationships. You openly express your feelings of love for your partner, wearing your heart on your sleeve. However, when the time comes that someone does wrong by you, your overly sensitive response is more than most people can handle.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You live for the spot light, and will do whatever it takes to ensure that you are always the center of attention. This constant need for validation and attention in your relationship is bound to get old quickly for your partner. They are going to get tired of living in your shadow unless you can learn to control your conceited nature.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You overanalyze everything in your life Virgo, from the way in which you furnish your home to the specific words you use when writing a letter to someone you deem important. This will carry over into your relationships, causing you to analyze every aspect of your partner, including their flaws. While some partners can remain patient with this for awhile, the constant criticism will eventually drive them away.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Congratulations Libra – for every rule there is an exception, and you are the exception on this list! You are great at relationships and commitment, and unlike the other signs, your flaws are much smaller, allowing you to build and grow healthy, happy relationships.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Ever the pessimist, you don’t trust the idea of romance and relationships. You believe that it is inevitable that someone is going to get hurt, and so you make it a point of hurting your partners before they can hurt you. You are skeptical about your partner’s feelings towards you, and don’t fully believe in true love.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You are the picture-perfect example of independence, taking an extreme amount of pride in your ability to stand on your own two feet. The problem with this strong persona is that you don’t want to give up your independence, which means that you hold back and avoid going all in on your relationships. However, you don’t mind being alone, and will even go as far as admitting that you enjoy the solitude.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
You are extremely driven and goal-oriented, always running after your next big dream. You place a high priority on your personal goals, and need a partner who will support you in your efforts. If someone is going to put you into a position where you are being forced to choose between your goals and your partner, your goals are going to win!
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
You are mysterious and guarded, always facing life with a heavy coat of armor on. This need to protect yourself makes It difficult for your partner to feel a sense of connection with you, leaving them feeling insecure and unsure about the status of your relationship.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
As a Pisces, you are VERY romantic, in love with your favorite romance novels and movies. The problem is that you have created an idea of what you believe a romantic relationship will be like, and reality doesn’t quite measure up. You want happy, sappy, perfect love at all times, and that’s just not realistic!
