Why You’ve Been Single For A Very Long Time, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You’re looking for your perfect match and your standards are too high, so you write a lot of people off too quickly without giving them a proper chance to see if they could be your perfect match or not. You don’t give yourself a chance to dig a little deeper to truly get to know this person if they didn’t make a great first impression.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You’re not very flexible and you don’t really know how to meet someone you like halfway. You set your rules early on and you’re not very flexible when it comes to accommodating someone else’s needs. You have a ‘my way or the highway’ approach and that’s because you don’t want to get hurt again, but sometimes a little flexibility goes a long way and helps you connect with people better.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You don’t open up to people like you used to. You’re always keeping people at arm’s length, and you don’t show who you really are or express what you want because you’re playing it too safe, which people can mistake for rejection or feel like you’re not interested in them or in sharing some parts of yourself with them. Opening up may help you build closer and better relationships.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You choose people who are not emotionally available or people who just got out of serious relationships because you love helping people heal and find love again, but it becomes harder for you to actually be with them, because while you’re ready for commitment, they’re not so sure. They still want to heal and figure out what they want, and as much as you want to help them heal, sometimes they just have to do it on their own.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You have a ‘type’ you don’t want to change, a type that hasn’t really been working for you. You have a pattern of liking people who are not very compatible with you or people who seem to be but they make your life harder than it should be. You’re stuck on one type that’s been keeping you single and maybe slightly unhappy, so it’s time to find another ‘type’ that you can actually date.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You are too picky. If you don’t like the way someone dresses or the way they dance, then you immediately lose interest without trying to get to know their character or their personality. Sometimes you let good people go even though they could be a good fit for you, and if things work out, you can always give them some fashion tips or some dance classes.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You compare everyone to your ex. You keep comparing everyone to your ex and no one seems to measure up. It’s not easy to move on from someone you loved, but comparing everyone to your ex will keep you single and stuck. Sometimes when you stop comparing, you can find someone better and see that the grass could be greener on the other side.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Your expectations are too high and you’re always demanding a certain kind of attention. If the person you’re interested in is not all over you and blowing up your phone, then you won’t even consider asking them out or pursuing them instead of giving them the time to warm up to you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’re too busy or lazy to go out and meet new people. You’re so set in your ways and you’re too committed to your work, your pets, and all your travels and activities that you don’t really make time to get out there and meet new people, and even if you do, you don’t have the time to go on dates. Love could add a lot to your life too, so dedicate some time to it.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re still not ready for some reason. You’re either still healing from a previous relationship or you’re more focused on your career goals and your personal growth so you’re not really trying. You won’t date for fun, you will only do it when you’re ready to commit and settle down, so you don’t want to rush anything and you’re taking your time. You like taking things slow—too slow at times.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You just can’t find anyone who can understand your complex mind and you don’t know how to move forward if you’re not connecting mentally, physically, and emotionally with someone. People either find you weird, crazy, or hard to read, and you don’t try to change their minds either, but you’re waiting for that one person who is brave and patient enough to figure out who you really are and love you the way you want to be loved.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re too shy to make the first move and you don’t say what’s on your mind. People normally don’t know if you like them or if you’re just being sweet and nice. Sometimes you treat everyone in the same way, so the person you like will never feel special and they won’t know unless you say something or show them a little extra love and attention.
