When it comes to finding someone to share your love life with, are you guilty of self-sabotage?
Why is it that you keep finding yourself alone? You aren't impossible to love, and will find that special someone some day, but each Sun Sign has some natural dating hang-ups that can cause people to remain single longer than they'd like. Are yours keeping you from finding love?
The very same self-assured nature that seemed like a siren song early in the relationship with an Aries quickly turns annoying. An Aries needs to tone down his or her ego and "me first" attitude during the occasional compromise if a relationship is going to last.
Don't assume your partner will remain loyal if you stop looking after your appearance or get too lazy about trying to ignite romance. Stubborn Taurus partners also tend to hold grudges and allow resentment to grow after the same fight happens repeatedly.
If cheating is a pattern in your relationships, it may be that Gemini trait coming out. Dating a Gemini can be confusing for his or her partner if the Gemini reinvents his or her personality too often, which can send pursuers running for the hills.
A Cancer has the danger of mentioning scary things like marriage and kids too early in the relationship. Cancer partners tend to be clingy, causing their dating partners to feel smothered and want to back off instead of relaxing into the embrace of love.
As a Leo, you argue with your lover in a relationship because you care. But a confused dating partner might feel that the Leo is constantly picking battles, which can become tiring. A Leo can remain single when winning personal battles is more important than winning someone's heart.
That gorgeous creature that you wish would ask you out on a date may not even believe that you are interested since Virgos are so shy. A Virgo also tends to give up too soon and never call back a date if even the slightest thing — real or imagined — goes wrong.
The dating life of a Libra can be a disaster if he or she keeps picking lovers that are "broken" and need to be "fixed." In fact, a Libra might subconsciously seek out people who are bad for him or her, and then fall into a trap of becoming manipulative or deceptive.
The delightfully caustic wit of a Scorpio can turn to nagging in a relationship, which can cut it short. A Scorpio can have an "all or nothing" picky attitude that shoots down potential dates. Some Scorpio lovers can become controlling, which causes their mates to run.
Are your standards just a little too high? Then you might just be a Sagittarius. Sure, you deserve the very best, and you don't have to settle for anything. But refusing to think anyone is good enough for you is not attractive.
A Capricorn can be aloof and even jealous until his or her confidence has been won. Unfortunately, that takes a lot of time and persistence. A lover can easily become frustrated and bored before being able to appeal to the traditional values of a Capricorn.
An Aquarius is opinionated and doesn't try to hide his or her quirky nature! This can be delightfully cute early on in a relationship, but the constant conflicts that the Aquarius can't let go become destructive over time.
Are you still pining after an ex? Then you might be a Pisces, whose self-sacrificing nature can build resentment, and who might not end a bad relationship. A Pisces can keep choosing lovers who use him or her, causing the single life to be revisited again and again.
