How You React After a Bad Date, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
When you're looking for love, bad dates are bound to happen.
Some of us are used to it and deal with it quite well, while others find it harder and harder to handle the ultimate rejection and disappointment they bring.
Based on your zodiac sign, we bet we can guess how you react after a bad date. Scroll below to see if we've got you pegged!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You enjoy keeping busy when it comes to things you're passionate about. Dating isn't exactly one of those things. When it's good, you enjoy it. But when you experience a bad date, you tend to let your anger get the best of you. You might raise your voice a bit with your date, and you've been known to get in some spats with them, too. After the date's over, you go on a long walk or hit up the gym to blow off some steam. You never really dwell on it for long though, because you know that only means something better is right around the corner for you.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You quite enjoy yourself some romance, Taurus. So if you're not in a serious relationship, you're always going on as many dates as you can until you find the one. You're pretty polite and will let someone know right off the bat if things aren't going to work out, meaning bad dates don't happen to you all that often. They do still happen sometimes though. When they do, you swear off dating for at least a few months. You stubbornly sit out, because you don't want to put yourself through that type of torture ever again. Eventually, you come to your senses and pick it back up full steam ahead.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Dating is fun for you, because you get to meet new people with exciting stories to tell, and you also get to share your interesting life tales with someone who hasn't heard them before. Obviously when you experience a bad date, you need to talk about it. Immediately after it goes down, you hop on a four, five or even six-way call with your closest friends to dish about everything that happened. You'll talk for hours about it, but you don't stop there. Depending on how horrible the date went, you could be talking about it for the rest of your life. Oh well, just another chapter to add to your collection of narratives.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You're so emotional and sensitive that you kind of convince yourself every single date you go on is a bad one. This isn't the case, but you enjoy nothing more than complaining about how tough it is out there for someone like you. Typically after a bad date, you just head right on home, whip up your favorite comfort food, plop yourself down on the couch and cry while watching sappy rom-coms. Do you tell anyone about your post-bad date ritual? Absolutely not. You make sure everyone knows it was the other person who walked away brokenhearted and not you.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
People can say what they want about you, but you know your worth. While others are quick to call you arrogant and conceited, you don't let it phase you. Some people just don't know what to do with a person as confident as you. You tend to attract a lot of people, so you go on dates often. Though you're a catch, no date is perfect and you've experienced some pretty terrible ones. That said, you never let it phase you. You know it's part of the game and are so sure of who you are that you let those bad date vibes roll right off your back. They don't bother you and they never will.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Dating for you is a bit rough, especially considering how much of a perfectionist you are. You have a clear image in mind of the type of person you want to spend the rest of your life with. To be honest, we're not sure someone that flawless exists, but we'll let you fantasize about 'em. After you meet up with someone you hoped would be your dream human, only to realize they are far what what you expected, you're quick to analyze every little aspect of your bad date. You even go over everything that went wrong with your date, including giving them tips on how they can improve.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You're a total social butterfly, Libra. You're always surrounded by different people, whether they be family, friends or lovers. Dating is something you're pretty fond of, because you crave partnership. There's nothing you love more than spending time with people, which is why when you have a bad date, you never really have to worry about it. Why? Well that's because you always have a back-up plan. You don't just plan one date, you plan a few to be safe. And then you keep going and going and going on them until you find the right one for you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
As mysterious as they come, you rarely ever let anyone get close to you. It takes a lot to get you to go out on a date with anyone, because there are about a billion other things you'd rather do. So when you finally come around to go on one only for it to be a complete and utter disaster, you're understandably upset. When your date kindly lets you know it isn't going to work out, all you want to do is know why. So you find yourself asking them what went wrong until you feel you know the truth.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
One of the greatest things about you is your optimistic nature. Nothing ever really gets you down for too long, which is why you're always seen with a smile on your face. But even a ray of sunshine like you isn't free from experiencing a bad date here or there. Unlike the rest of the signs, you don't really let it weigh you down. Sure, you're upset at first. But you quickly come around and just laugh off the whole experience. After all, there's no use in crying over spilled milk.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
There's no group of people you trust more in your life than your family. You put them above all else, because you would literally do anything for them. You love them and you know they love you. After a bad date, you're the type to run to them for comfort or advice. If anyone's going to keep it real and put things into perspective, it's them. You know they may not tell you what you want to hear, but everything they say is exactly what you need to listen to.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
While you're known for being the humanitarian of the zodiac, you're not really all that fond of people. You prefer to spend your days alone, hidden away in your room from anyone who could get on your nerves. Obviously, you don't go on dates as often as the other signs. When you experience a bad one, you do what you do best—retreat. You hide away until you build your confidence back up to get back out there and try again.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
You're the epitome of a hopeless romantic, Pisces. The dreamy and whimsical person you are, you always have your head in the clouds. When it comes to dating, you go into it wearing rose-colored glasses. You set your hopes incredibly high, so when they're not matched, you tend to get really down on yourself. After a bad date, you're known for listening to nothing but sad breakup songs for months on end. A little cry sesh never hurt anybody.
