This Is Why You're Single, According to Your Zodiac Sign

Whether you've been single for years or all of five minutes, you probably constantly question your lifeless relationship status on a regular basis.

Based on your zodiac sign, we know the exact reason for your singlehood. Keep scrolling to discover why you're single!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): You're Always Busy

You lead a thoroughly active and exhilarating lifestyle, Aries. Your daily schedule is always overly packed with a variety of activities that get your blood pumping and leave you excited for what's to come. Having such a busy agenda leaves little to no time to date, which is the main reason you're single. Because you're always rushing from one thing to the next, you've swept your love life under the rug. At least you're so constantly preoccupied that you forget about your relationship status.

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): You Have High Standards

As the true romantic of the zodiac, you know exactly what you're looking for when it comes to being in a relationship. You want a rom-com-like love, filled with passion and excitement every single day. If you meet someone who isn't looking for everything you are, you're quick to pass them up. Compromise isn't a word in your relationship vocabulary, but it definitely should be. Relationships can't always be idealized.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): You Don't Know What You Want

Represented by the twins, you're known for being a bit fickle with your emotions. When you like someone, you tend to run hot and cold. You'll go from being super into them one day, then avoid them because you're over it the next. Obviously, this tends to confuse the person you're crushing on. Think about what you really want before you start pursuing someone.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): You Never Let Your Guard Down

You're a tough nut to crack, Cancer. You parade around, showcasing a harsh exterior, because you don't want your feelings to get hurt. Dealing with your emotions is not your strong suit, which is why you build up your guard as high as can be. You don't let it drop for a single soul, which is why you're still single. Not everyone is out to get you, so don't forget to be open about your sentiments with the person you like.

 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): You're Too Confident for Your Own Good

No other sign is as confident as you, Leo. You know your worth and you don't let anyone forget it, which is why you expect the world to treat you like the royal you are. Because others don't have as much faith in themselves, they often see your self-assurance as being arrogant. It really isn't your fault you're single, rather just those you're courting being so taken aback by your reassurance in yourself. One day, you'll find someone who is threatened by your confidence.

 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): You're Too Picky

Your specialty, Virgo, is that you're always able to see the worst in every situation. You don't mean to be so negative, it just sort of happens. The second you start liking someone, you're quick to point out all of their flaws and abandon your feelings for them. Nobody is perfect, nor will they ever adhere to your insanely high standards, so don't expect them to.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): You're Too Hard on Yourself

While you're the social butterfly of the sign, easily able to befriend a wide variety of people, your self-confidence isn't all it's cracked up to be. You tend to be really tough on yourself for no particular reason at all. Once you like someone or you realize they're feeling you, you immediately start to tell yourself you're not good enough for them. Don't do that! You're an amazing person, more than deserving of finding love.

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): You Don't Trust Anyone

Mysterious and enigmatic as they come, you prefer to keep to yourself. You're capable of having passionate, loving relationships, but your downfall is your inability to trust others. You're convinced everyone has an ulterior motive for wanting to get to know you, which is why you push people away so easily.

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): You're Too Independent

A free-spirit who always seeks thrilling adventures, you're as independent as they come. You don't let anyone tell you what to do, because it's your life after all. Because you tend to put yourself first, it's often difficult for you to add someone else to your life. You prefer to do things on your own and be your own person, and you wouldn't have it any other way.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): You Put Your Goals Ahead of Everything Else

You work harder than any other sign in the zodiac, Capricorn. You have a ton of goals you've set for yourself, so you never let anything stop you from achieving them. You see dating as a distraction, which is why you avoid doing it. But you'll eventually meet someone who'll push you to be your very best, rather than being a roadblock on your life journey.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): You Prefer to Be Alone

Though you're a humanitarian and live to make the world a better place, you prefer to spend most of your time all by yourself. You find being around others truly exhausting, which is why you can often be found cooped up in your chosen place of seclusion. You can't expect to enter a relationship if you only spend time with yourself. So step out of your comfort zone and go meet some new people.

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): You Come Off Too Strong

When you start crushing on someone, you crush insanely hard. You have no problem expressing all of your mushy-gushy feelings up front. That tends to shut others off, because they don't know how to handle it. Rather than texting your crush multiple times throughout the hour or hanging out with them whenever they have a free second, ease up. Good things really require some time to take off.
