Everyone has their positives and negatives in a romantic relationship.
You can’t expect your partner to love everything about you, and if you do, you’re probably going to be sorely disappointed.
Since we’re big fans of self-awareness, we decided to give you the inside scoop into some of the not-so-great aspects of your personality. Keep scrolling for your most unlovable quality, based on your zodiac sign.
Passionate and enthusiastic, you’re basically all or nothing when it comes to romance, Aries. You have a tendency to dive headfirst into your relationships and you’re totally unafraid of showing your feelings and making the first move. While your energy is completely intoxicating, your impulsiveness has a downside—you’re incredibly impatient. A slight misstep from your partner often causes you to explode in rage, which leads to a relationship filled with highs and lows. Your partners are often walking on eggshells around your bad temper, and your impatience causes you to neglect their needs in favor of meeting your own. Try to curb your irritability, Aries. People are going to make mistakes, and lashing out in anger won’t solve any problems.
You’re responsible and practical, Taurus, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Trust is very important to you and you don’t want to reveal your true self to just anyone, so it takes you a long time to open up to someone. While your aloofness is simply part of your attempts to protect yourself, it’s also a huge hindrance to your romantic relationships. Your fears about opening up cause you to detach from your partner, often putting your doubts and worries above your positive feelings about the relationship. While keeping your emotions disconnected from the situation is a good way to avoid getting hurt, it also keeps you from building a genuine and deep connection with someone. It’s okay to be cautious, Taurus, but try to open yourself up a little sooner or you might be pushing away partners that could be perfect for you.
Oh, moody little Gemini—there’s just no tying you down. You’re social, fun-loving and talkative, but you’re not the most reliable romantic partner. You’re always shifting between the two different sides of your personality, and your emotions tend to change just as easily. You fall in love quickly, but you fall out of love just as fast, so your partners never feel like they’re able to rely on you. You’re an exciting and fun S.O., but your instability makes it difficult for people to truly open themselves up to a serious relationship with you.
No one wishes to change how deeply emotional you are, Cancer. The way you’re able to tap into your feelings makes you wonderfully intuitive and sympathetic—qualities that your partners are sure to love about you. However, there is such a thing as being too sensitive. Since you care so deeply about everything in your life, you have a tendency to assign a deep meaning to smallest of interactions, often getting your feelings hurt over nothing at all. Not everyone is trying to attack you, Cancer. Take a deep breath and incorporate some reason into your emotions. Otherwise you’re going to push some truly amazing partners away with your overreactions.
Ah, our fiery Sun sign. Leo, you’re warmhearted and generous, but you genuinely believe the world revolves around you, which can make you quite the difficult partner. You have an almost reckless self-confidence that lends itself to a strong will, and you’re not afraid to impose your expectations on your romantic partners. You’re always ready to take the reins, often organizing things that are not your place to interfere in. While your partners are automatically drawn to your magnetic charm, your inflexibility can become a huge impediment to a healthy relationship if you don’t learn to work with your partners instead of bulldozing their opinions.
You’re loyal, analytical and intellectually dominant, Virgo. While this makes you totally willing to do everything for your partner, it also makes you very critical of the person you decide to be with. You have a certain path laid out in your mind that you want your partner to follow, and you don’t take very kindly to them stepping out of line. You think you’re just helping your S.O. become the best version of themselves, but you’re actually making them feel incompetent and inferior. Just because someone doesn’t do things the way you would have done it doesn’t make them wrong, Virgo. You have to let your S.O. do things for themselves and accept that it might not always be the path you would have chosen.
All of life is a balancing act for you, Libra, which generally makes you very fair-minded and peaceful. However, it also means that you’re practically incapable of making a decision, which can get very frustrating for your romantic partners. Instead of being an equal voice for you partner to bounce ideas off of, you often want them to make all the choices for you, only to get upset when things don’t turn out exactly how you want. Not every decision is the end of the world—try to help your partner out a bit or your indecisiveness might become a huge issue in your relationship.
You’re quite a difficult sign to understand, Scorpio. You’re all about your emotions, making you a very passionate and loving person, but you don’t know how to effectively express your feelings, which leads to a lot of distrust and jealousy. As much as your partner might love you, they find it very difficult to get on board with your natural skepticism. You’re always waiting for something bad to happen, sometimes even going so far as to falsely accuse your partner of being unfaithful to you. Try to rein in the jealousy, Scorpio—it makes it difficult for your partner to love you when they feel like they constantly have to explain and defend themselves.
Oh, Sagittarius—you’re free-spirited and adventurous, which makes you an incredibly independent individual. You believe that all people are genuinely good, which means that you don’t always have the best understanding of social situations. You’re big on speaking your mind, often saying hurtful or tactless things without even realizing that you’ve offended anyone. While your partners understand that you’re not being purposefully rude, it does become tiring for them to cover for your mistakes. Think about what you’re saying before you speak, Sagittarius. Not only will it improve your relationships with other people, it will also take a lot of unneeded pressure off your S.O.
You’re quite the responsible and disciplined sign, Capricorn. While this makes you an incredibly loyal and committed S.O., it also means that you have pretty strict expectations for your romantic partners. You don’t understand how people might not agree with everything you say, and you have a tendency to believe that anyone who has a different perspective than you is simply inferior. This attitude of condescension can become quite infuriating to your romantic partners, who start to feel like they can’t have their own opinions within your relationship. Differing viewpoints can actually add value to your life, Capricorn. The sooner you understand that, the happier you’ll be.
You’re progressive and intellectual, Aquarius, always on the hunt for an intellectual challenge. You don’t feel fulfilled unless you’re using your mind, which is a great quality in general, but can become problematic in your relationships. If there isn’t enough actual content to occupy your brain, you’ll start making things up, leading to a lot of overthinking in your romances. Even when things are going perfectly, you have a tendency to think too far into the future and imagine problems that haven’t yet occurred. Your overthinking takes you out of the present of your relationship and makes it impossible for your partners to prove what a great match you are. Find a different way to occupy your mind, Aquarius, and don’t allow your active imagination to ruin your romantic possibilities.
You’re just a little sweetheart, Pisces. You have a genuine care for the people around you, and you’re gentle and tender with everyone you meet. However, you’re also highly artistic and intuitive. You don’t like to exist in reality, but instead prefer to dream up all the things that could be if reality were different. This is a difficult thing to get on board with for your romantic partners. Not only does it make you unreliable in a relationship, it also means that you’re always imagining your next great love, and will happily leave your partner if there’s a possibility for someone to love you more. You don’t have to change your imaginative spirit, Pisces, but try to assure your partner that you won’t walk right out the door if you find someone better.
