Once you start falling for someone, it‘s easy to ignore their flaws.
We‘re all human, so none of us are perfect, but there are a few warning signals you should look out for in a new relationship.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): They‘re Unmotivated
Dynamic and energetic, you‘re never not doing something, Aries. You‘re not one to sit still and wait for life to happen, oh no. You take charge in your life, never missing an opportunity to do something extraordinary. If your partner doesn‘t share these same sentiments, you need to cut them loose. You‘ll find yourself trying to push them to create goals for their life, which will only make it more difficult to achieve your own.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): They Never Admit They‘re Wrong
You‘re as stubborn as they come, Taurus. You stand your ground no matter what, which is why being with someone who never admits their wrong will only cause more problems later on. While you‘re headstrong, you come around eventually. It just takes some time. But you shouldn‘t constantly be the one to apologize for things that were said or done. It has to be an equal balance. If it isn‘t going to be, end it.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): They Don‘t Communicate Their Feelings
Curious by nature, you‘re always chatting up a variety of people to learn everything about everything. Your inquisitive tendencies make you one of the best communicators in the zodiac. You‘re easily able to express your feelings and have discussions with anyone about anything, especially when it comes to your relationships. You‘re always open and honest, so you can‘t be with someone who isn‘t willing to talk it out. It‘ll only frustrate you to no avail.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): They Constantly Make Fun of You
You‘re incredibly sensitive, Cancer. You experience a variety of emotions throughout the day, but you keep them hidden from everyone around you. You prefer to deal with them on your own time. The one red flag you need to watch out for is someone who constantly pokes fun at you. Though it might not seem serious to your partner, it‘ll make you feel upset. If they can‘t sympathize with your delicacy, wave goodbye.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): They‘re a Horrible Texter
You‘re the star of the zodiac, Leo. Everyone‘s eyes are always on you and that‘s just the way you like it. Being the center of attention is all you want in life. One of the things you despise most is being ignored, which is why you can‘t be with someone who is a horrible texter. You need someone who will text you consistently, not whenever they get the chance.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): They Treat Others Disrespectfully
Sweet and shy, you‘re a cautious individual. You don‘t take many risks, because you prefer to be sure everything will work out before you dive into anything. This does make you a loyal and kind person. If your new S.O. treats others rudely, they need to go. There is one thing you won‘t tolerate and that‘s disrespect of any kind, whether it be to you or a total stranger. Anyone who treats others harshly is not the one for you.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): They Want to Be Alone With You at All Times
You‘re a social butterfly, Libra. You enjoy spending all of your time surrounded by the people you love, because you simply can‘t stand to be alone. While you‘re obviously looking for someone who shares this same sentiment, you shouldn‘t be with someone who isn‘t cool with you hanging out with your friends or family without them. Anyone who feels the need to be a constant presence in your life will only smother you and be the wedge that tears you apart from everyone else in your life.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): They Keep Way Too Many Secrets
Mysterious as it gets, you‘re not one to reveal your tricks all at once. You prefer to keep things hidden, because you fear what will happen if your secrets get into the wrong hands. That said, you‘re not a fan of people who keep secrets from you. You pride yourself on being a trustworthy individual, so you hope your S.O. would share everything with you. Don‘t let anyone who isn‘t willing to do that into your life. It‘ll only backfire.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): They Always Need to Check in With You
You‘re not scared to do your own thing. While others may follow the usual path, you prefer the road less traveled. One thing you desperately need in a relationship is personal freedom. You‘re not one who needs to spend every waking moment with their partner, as you never shy away from doing your own thing. While it may seem cute at first, being with someone who constantly calls or texts you to see what‘s up is sure to irritate you later on. Clearly, they don‘t trust you enough to give you some space.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): They‘re Not Close With Their Family
You‘re a family person, Capricorn. There‘s no one more important to you than your clan. You do everything you can to make sure they‘re provided for and set up for a successful life. So if your new S.O. isn‘t as close with their family, that‘s a major red flag for you. You can‘t understand how someone wouldn‘t want to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones, so you‘d spend most of your relationship fighting about this. Let them save this drama for their mama and move on.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): They Never Keep Their Word
Others can always count on you, Aquarius. Whenever you make a promise, you always keep it. So you can‘t be with anyone who doesn‘t do the same. Even if they‘re little things, the more you let them get away with it, the easier it will be to never commit to anything they say. The second you notice your new S.O. starts going back on their word, tell them it‘s over.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): They Only Care About Their Feelings
You‘re a truly sympathetic creature, Pisces. You tend to put everyone else‘s needs above your own, because you want your loved ones to be happy. But you also want to be taken care of and not feel as though you need to give and give and give to make your partner happy. It needs to be an equal balance. So being with someone who‘s only concerned with their happiness just won‘t cut it for you. While you‘ll enjoy being their cheerleader, it‘ll only make you miserable later on.
