We've all got SOMETHING preventing us from finding that special someone.
Love is a tricky thing. A lot of times we take it personally, but to be honest, it's ALWAYS been that way. You can ask your parents, your grandparents, generations coming up — they'll all say the same thing:
Love is a LOT of freakin' work.
It's messy as hell — that you can always count on. It's complicated, it's difficult, it's pulling-out-your-hair frustrating ... but it's SO worth it. For every relationship struggle you have, there's a million incredible moments that make you truly appreciate being in love.
Don't give up on it just because it sucks sometimes. Trust me, you'll be glad you didn't.
Remember, we all have our flaws. I mean come on, nobody is ever going to be perfect. So, we have to consider our own set-backs when searching for love. We're all different, each one of us having a particular flaw that keeps us from going all in with somebody we think we may love. Knowing the biggest thing that holds you back from diving into that love will help you immensely.
Luckily, we can help you figure out just what that #1 thing is that's preventing you from falling for your true love. Just try taking a look at your zodiac sign to see what could be holding YOU back. The stars can tell us a lot more about ourselves than you might think.
So find your birthday below and get back on track to finding the love you deserve.
You can be WAY too short-tempered.
Okay Aries, take a chill pill. Count to ten, do some breathing exercises, whatever it takes. If you spend all your time getting angry, how will you ever truly be happy? Next time you feel like getting upset, take a step back and look at all the great things in your life — including love.
You’re too dang stubborn.
Quit being so stuck in your ways. Branch out, take a step out of your comfort zone. I know it can be easy to get caught up in your pride, but that doesn't mean you have to be so stubborn about everything all the time. Don't be afraid to admit when you're wrong and when your partner is right, it'll go a long way.
Your knack for indecisiveness.
I don't care what the decision is you're making, but for the love of God just make it! You are notorious for being the worst decision-maker ever and you need to cut that out if you ever plan on finding love. How can you ever choose a lover if you can't make a decision to save your life?
Your insecurity and constant suspicions.
If you ever want to make a relationship work, you need to be more trusting. You can't be going around making accusations just because you have certain insecurities. You have to trust that the one you love, loves you, too.
Your tendency to be too self-involved.
Yeah, I know, you're pretty awesome. BUT that doesn't mean the world has to revolve around you 24/7. If you can't get out of your own head long enough, how do you ever expect to find someone to share your best self with?
Your innate shyness.
Open yourself up! If you go your whole life buried in yourself because you're afraid to put yourself out there and meet new people, then you'll never find the one you're meant to be with. You're full of life and love — prove it.
Your constant self-pitying.
You're not doing yourself any favors by playing the role of the martyr all the time. Don't get caught up in playing the "poor me" card. It's not a very attractive quality and certainly isn't one to fuel a relationship. It will only hurt your chances of finding love.
You’re entirely too distrusting.
It gets annoying after awhile, constantly having to reassure someone that they're being faithful or that they love you. Don't get caught up in your distrusting ways, it's only going to push people away. Help yourself out and throw that skepticism out the window!
You are impatient as hell.
Slow your roll there Sagittarius. All good things come to those who wait. It's true in life and it's true in love. Your impatience hinders your ability to find love and until you put that to rest, you'll keep moving on to something — or someone — else.
You always expect the worst out of people.
Not everyone is bad news. Take a chance on someone, more than likely you won't regret it. Even if you have been burned a few times, keep the past in the past. It's not worth losing out on love for.
You jump at the chance to run from expressing your emotions.
You can't have a solid relationship without ever confessing your feelings to someone. Opening your heart up to someone is scary as hell for you, but it's necessary for any real relationship. You need to accept your emotions and express yourself to the one you love.
You are all too fearful of any uncharted territory.
Try something new! Meet someone new! Don't be afraid to branch out every now and then. You'd be surprised by where life will take you and who it'll bring into your life. New is exciting and love is worth the risk.
