The stars have all kinds of info to share about your love life.
In fact, your zodiac sign might even reveal how you feel about being single. Wondering if it's right? Keep scrolling to find out.
Aries (March 20 – April 19): You're Comfortable Being Alone
You often take the initiative when it comes to romance, Aries, so if you're single, it's likely because you've decided that you're not in the mood to pursue anyone at the moment. You lead a very busy and active lifestyle, so you're totally fine with taking some time to engage in your favorite activities, rather than pouring your energy into another person. Although you're totally willing to shower a romantic partner with endless affection, your natural independence and confidence in yourself makes you completely comfortable going through life without a romantic partner by your side.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): You Don't Like It, But You Won't Settle
You're not a big fan of being single, Taurus. Despite your practical nature, you have big dreams of the perfect rom-com romance that will fill you with all the passion and excitement you've been dreaming of. You long for a sense of love and security, so it's understandable that you're restless while living the single life. However, your dreams of a big romance also mean that you're unwilling to settle for anything less than your perfect partner, meaning you're totally prepared to live your life alone until someone meets your incredibly high standards.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): You're Tired of the Single Life
Oh, sweet little dual-natured Gemini, you're quite tired of being alone. Your two-sided personality makes it difficult for you to enter a relationship, as your emotions often run hot and cold, stopping you from truly bonding with another person. It's hard for you to find someone patient enough to handle your constant mood swings, so you've spent quite a bit of time living up the single life—and you're pretty tired of it. You have a lot to offer a romantic partner, and you're ready to fully commit to someone, which is making you quite impatient to find the right person for you.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Being Single Makes You Feel Protected
You're quite the emotional and sensitive sign, Cancer, but you keep all your feelings buried under the surface. However, because you function primarily using your emotions, being in a relationship forces you to open up and expose your vulnerable side. Therefore, you appreciate being single because it makes you feel protected. You're able to bury your feels way deep down inside and only embrace them when you're alone and in a safe space. You refuse to enter a relationship that isn't founded on deep emotion, but you're also scared of unveiling your soft and gooey center, so you're in no rush to pursue a new romance.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): You Love It
Ah, our self-centered little Leo—is it any shock that you absolutely love the single life? You're naturally confident and attractive, so people are easily drawn to your warm-hearted energy. When you're single, you're able to embrace your status as the center of attention in a way that you just can't when you're in a relationship. In fact, you're in no hurry to end things with any of your admirers, making the single life your ultimate happy place.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): You Hardly Notice It
Oh, Virgo—you're known for your "all work and no play" mentality, which means that you rarely take time to notice that you don't have a partner to share your life with. You have way too many other things to accomplish before you can add a romantic relationship to your "to do" list. Once you're ready to pursue a relationship, you might start to feel restless and irritated with the fact that you can't just snap your fingers and make your perfect love story appear in front of you—but for now a romantic partner is very low on your list of priorities.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): You Hate It
Balance, fairness and partnership are of the utmost importance to you, Libra, which means that you absolutely hate being single. You see a romantic relationship as the perfect counterbalance—the ideal way to find equilibrium and add stability to your life. Beyond that, you are also one of the most communicative and social signs in all the zodiac, meaning that you have an endless amount of love to give. You never stay single for long, as you're always on the hunt for a new relationship, but when you're single, you hate every minute that you spend alone.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): You're Not Sure
Mysterious and perplexing, no one can ever really tell how you're feeling, Scorpio. And when it comes to being single, you're not really sure, either. On one hand, you have plenty of strong feelings and you're a naturally passionate person, so you yearn to share your life with someone who understands you. On the other hand, however, you're riddled with trust issues and an inability to open up, so you prefer to stay in your single bubble where no one is forcing you out of your comfort zone. You have a love/hate relationship with being single, and you probably won't land on a particular feeling until you find someone who changes everything for you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): You Don't Care
Ah, our free-spirited Sagittarius. You're pretty self-reliant, so you just don't care one way or the other about being single. You're much more interested in exploring the world around you and expanding your mind than you are in a romantic relationship, but you also wouldn't say no if the right partner came along. With your curious mind and energetic soul, however, you just don't have enough excess spirit to truly care about your relationship status. When it happens it happens, and until it does, you're totally fine being alone.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): You're Happier Alone
Oh, serious Capricorn—you have a general dislike of almost everything to some degree, and you're not big on compromising or accepting the differences of others. In general, you just find that you're happier alone because you don't have to work another person into your strictly organized schedule. You find that you can accomplish almost everything you need on your own, and you don't have to spend your valuable time and resources arguing with another person when you're not in a romantic relationship. You much prefer the single life, and it would take quite the special individual to make you change your mind.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): You Want a Relationship, But You Don't Know How to Show It
Aquarius, you've earned yourself the reputation of one of the most eccentric signs in all the zodiac. And it's true—you're quite the unique little nugget. But underneath your unconventional interests and temperamental emotions, you long for a loving romantic relationship. You love to be surrounded by people and share your compassionate nature with the world. There's just one problem: You're not sure how to communicate that. You often come across as aloof and uninterested, and you have trouble expressing your genuine emotions. You would happily leave the single life far behind you, you just have to find someone who can see past your cold demeanor.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): You Can Hardly Stand Being Alone
Oh sweet Pisces—you're the hopeless romantic of the zodiac. You're constantly daydreaming about your perfect relationship, and imagining how idyllic life will be once you meet your person. You fall way too hard way too fast with almost everyone you meet. You're such a romantic, in fact, that you can hardly stand being alone. You're constantly on the hunt for your next relationship, and you find yourself feeling frustrated and sad when you don't have anyone to share your unconditional love and never-ending compassion with. The single life makes you feel anxious, and you do your best to avoid it at all costs.
