Here's Your Crush's Biggest Turnoff, Based on Their Zodiac Sign

We've all spent countless hours wondering how exactly we can wow our crush.

We monitor their behavior, take special note of their likes and dislikes and do our absolute best to catch their attention. Sadly, all that sleuthing may have been in vain, considering we can just look to their zodiac sign and get all the information we could ever need.

So if you're wondering what your crush definitely doesn'like, keep scrolling for their biggest turnoff, based on their zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Being Too Available

Aries is straightforward and confident when it comes to love and relationships. They like to take the lead in their romances, often enjoying the chase to win someone's affection more than they enjoy the actual relationship. Therefore, being too available is the ultimate turnoff for your Aries crush. If they know they can have you by simply saying the word, it takes away the energy and active participation that they put into the relationship. Aries like challenges, both in their everyday life and in their relationship, so showing how much you like them eliminates their need to fight for the relationship and turns them off from pursuing any kind of future with you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Insincerity 

As much as people under the sign of Taurus love to partake in the finer things in life, they're not at all shallow or superficial. Taurus is reliable, stable and very hesitant to pursue relationships, as they have difficulty trusting people enough to build a genuine connection. Given those qualities, it makes sense that Taurus hates insincerity of any kind. They crave genuine connection and meaningful conversation, so anything shallow and superficial will immediately turn them off from pursuing someone. Your Taurus crush doesn't want to play games—they want to get to the heart of who you are and determine if there is any kind of connection, so any attempt to stay on the surface-level will drive your crush far away from you.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Clinginess 

Gemini is a fun-loving and sociable sign. They have naturally flirty personalities and they love talking to people, so they're always on the hunt for an energetic and entertaining partner who can understand their inconsistent nature and give them enough space to be themselves. Clinginess is a major turnoff for your Gemini crush. They enjoy their freedom and ability to pursue their own dreams, so they don't want to feel held down by someone who supposedly cares for them. Don't be clingy with a Gemini partner—you'll only end up pushing them away.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Selfishness 

People born under the sign of Cancer are deeply complex individuals. They like to feel like they're leading the relationship, but they're simultaneously too afraid of putting themselves out there to make the first move. However, Cancer is a deeply emotional sign who functions primarily on their feelings in relationships. They want to be a supportive and affectionate source of energy for their partners, and they expect that same devotion in return.

Selfishness is a huge turnoff for your Cancer crush. They need a lot of attention and a certain mutuality to your relationship, so thinking of your needs first will only cause them to feel that you're incapable of effectively caring for them. Try to show your Cancer crush that you're willing to put them first. Otherwise, you might just lose them.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Impoliteness

Leo is an incredibly self-confident and dominant sign. They're used to being the center of attention and often get their way due to their charming personality, but they're also genuinely warm-hearted individuals who seek to make everyone feel welcome and adored. However, since Leo has such a high opinion of themselves, any kind of disrespect will immediately turn them off from a potential romantic partner.

Given that Leo is truly generous and loyal, they believe that all people should be treated with respect. Therefore, impoliteness is undoubtedly their biggest turnoff, whether it's directed at them or not. Don't let your petty side take over around your Leo crush—they have enough romantic options that they'll never be willing to put up with it.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Messiness 

Virgo is an analytical and methodical sign. They value practicality in everything they do, and they need organization and structure in their life. If there's one thing Virgo can't stand, it's messiness. They're too caught up in the details and far too efficient to settle for a partner who can't meet their standards of cleanliness. It might seem like a small thing, but to your Virgo crush, tidiness is everything. So if your space is in constant disarray, you and your Virgo crush might not be meant for each other.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Insecurity 

Libra is an interesting sign. They're enthralled by partnership, so they're constantly on the hunt for a romantic relationship, but they also hate conflict and struggle to make decisions for themselves. Since they're often in romantic relationships, Libra knows that they need a partner who can lead with confidence, filling in when they're indecisive or unsure of themselves. Therefore, insecurity will always be a turnoff for a Libra partner. It's a huge double standard, considering their own insecurities, but Libra is searching for someone who possesses the qualities they can't seem to cultivate, so they will quickly cut things off with a partner who shows even a hint of self-doubt.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Being Too Open 

Scorpio is a mysterious and aloof sign. They know that it's hard to get a read on them, and they almost enjoy watching people struggle to break down their walls. You'd think with such a withdrawn sign they'd be attracted to someone who's immediately forthcoming and honest about their emotions, but being too open is actually a Scorpio's biggest turnoff. Scorpio has very deep emotions, but they like to keep their feelings close to the vest, as they think personal information should only be shared with someone whom they fully trust.

If a potential love interest is too open, Scorpio will immediately get bored with the relationship, as they'll feel there's nothing left to fight for. If you want to win your Scorpio crush, try to maintain an air of mystery—it'll draw them in much faster than a deep conversation about your feelings.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Seriousness

Sagittarius is an extroverted and enthusiastic sign who loves to explore everything the world has to offer. They crave fun and they're always looking on the bright side of life, so a serious demeanor is definitely going to be a turnoff for your Sagittarius crush. Sagittarius wants to feel free to openly explore the world, and will only feel bogged down by a solemn or traditional partner. If you find that you struggle to find the positives in a situation or tend to see the bad rather than the good, it might be time to let go of your Sagittarius crush, as it's likely things just won't work out.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Lack of Ambition 

Capricorn is a ridiculously responsible and disciplined sign. They're known for setting goals for themselves and doing whatever it takes to achieve those goals, no matter how long it might take. Therefore, it's understandable that a lack of ambition would be a huge turnoff for a Capricorn. They want a partner who will challenge them and push them to succeed, not one who is content for settling for the easiest route. If you struggle to shoot for the stars, you might want to give up on your Capricorn crush. Otherwise, they'll always be expecting you to be something you're not, which will just lead to a lot of unhappiness for you both.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Coming On Too Strong

Aquarius is quite unique when it comes to relationships. They love having interesting conversations and building genuine connections with the people around them, but they also have a deep desire to maintain their freedom and independence, no matter the cost. This is a driving force in their relationships, causing them to immediately walk in the other direction if a potential love interest comes on too strong. Aquarius doesn't want an aggressive first move or romantic declarations of love—it'll scare them away.

If you don't want to turn off your Aquarius crush, make sure you approach the relationship slowly and carefully, without moving too quickly or trying to force a commitment. Trust us, they'll be much more receptive to this method, even if it is slightly more frustrating for you.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): An Inability to Share Your Feelings

Pisces is an incredibly warm, compassionate and gentle sign. They're hopeless romantics who want nothing more than to be loved, but they show their care through sensitivity, empathy and kindness. In order for Pisces to embrace the generous person they are and subsequently give their all to a relationship, they need genuine attachments that hinge on total honesty about your feelings. If you can't open up to a Pisces, they'll immediately be turned off from pursuing you. A lack of emotion translates as a lack of care and affection to a Pisces. And why would they build a relationship with someone who stops them from being the selfless person they so desperately want to be?
