Know your limits.
Dating feels like it is getting harder. These days, more people are permanently swiping left and right on Tinder or focusing on themselves instead of dating seriously (which I fully support). But for those of us out there who are just trying to meet someone new, it can feel impossible.
So impossible, that we start lowering our standards more and more just to make it easier to find a date for Saturday night.
Maybe your motives are pure and you really do want to find that special guy, or maybe you just want a free meal and a good glass of wine (no judge, no judge), but whatever the case is, one thing is still true: dating kind of sucks.
You probably feel like you need a handbook that will push you through all of the not-so-great guys and straight to the best of the best (WITHOUT having to lower your standards). And you might be thinking, "That sounds great! But they don't have a handbook like that, do they?"
My answer to you is yes, there kind of IS a handbook like that.
Whether you completely believe in astrology or not, you have to admit that it is pretty fun comparing yourself to what you read and even checking out your crush's sign (guilty). Whatever your opinion may be, you can actually use your zodiac sign to help you ditch the zeros and make it easier to find that special one.
You never know, it could help you save some time dating the wrong guys. Because let's face it, those standards of yours really are that important when it comes to dating. And you should NEVER have to cheapen yourself for someone else, right?
Read your sign below to find out which guy you would NEVER date. Who knows? You might even find a sign or two that you ARE compatible with.
Aries' ever-busy lifestyle means that they need to be surrounded by people with similar motivations. Just like your friends, your significant other should understand that your determination to get what you want in life is admirable, not pushy.
You like competition and someone who is willing to keep up with you, which is why you would never date a guy who is lazy and happy to just stay in all weekend. You need a guy who will always challenge you.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Taurus
The only thing Taurus loves more than food is being lazy. When Taurus is in a relationship, they like having the choice between staying in, renting movies, and eating pizza or going out for a drink with friends. You want your significant other to be just as laid back as you are.
Even though you are not high maintenance at all when it comes to dating, you do tend to close up in certain situations. Guys who are spontaneous and unpredictable are the worst matches for you; you don't want someone who will always make you guess what they are thinking. You need stability in your relationship, not someone who will jump between hot and cold.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Sagittarius
Gemini loves being surrounded by a good time and even better company. You believe that life shouldn't change just because you are in a relationship, and that your guy should respect that you love to have fun.
Other than being alone, you also tend to hate making decisions. Being indecisive means you don't have to be serious, even though some situations call for you to act like an adult. Dating someone who is all about seriousness is definitely NOT your cup of tea.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Virgo
Cancer is a very sentimental individual and they love surrounding themselves with people who are cut from the same cloth. Getting in touch with their emotions helps them get to know others better, as well as learn more about themselves.
As a Cancer, you want to be in a relationship where you can be affectionate and emotional. You would never date a guy who had a hard time accessing his emotions and ended up letting his stubbornness get the better of him. There are times when you will need your significant other to make you feel better about yourself, which is why someone who doesn't really care about being open with their emotions would never be your guy.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Aquarius
Leo is dramatic and creative, which is what makes them so attractive to so many other signs. However, if you are a Leo, you know that you can get a little full of yourself sometimes. Most of the time, people will find your confident nature very refreshing.
However, there are certain people who will only see your confidence as arrogance. You need a guy who will admire your "good time" attitude and want to be up for anything when the mood strikes. Leo tends to stay away from guys who are passive and like to stay away from the center of attention.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Libra
Virgo is loyal and hardworking, and takes a lot of pride in being serious. They would much rather take their time analyzing all sides of a situation instead of making a snap decision. This might be a good mindset for the workplace, but it can make them seem like a bore everywhere else.
You should be looking for a guy who sees your studious nature as you see it: a big part of your life. Instead of trying to separate work and play, your significant other should appreciate that you work so hard. Anyone who tries to compete with you or outdo your work is NOT for you.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Aries
Libra loves to be social, but really opens up when they are around their best friends. They take pride in being able to remain diplomatic and not take sides when they are in an argument.
One of Libra's greatest traits is being able to practice what they preach. They only want peace and love in life, which is why their significant other should feel the same way. One of Libra's biggest pet peeves is violence and not being able to trust someone. If a guy makes you feel like you are compromising your beliefs for him, he isn't worth your time.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Scorpio
Scorpio is passionate and assertive, and knows how to use that to their advantage. If anyone can make over-the-top expression look good, it is definitely Scorpio. They don't always have the greatest track record when it comes to dating, but when they find someone special, they hold on to them.
Scorpio isn't afraid to say what is on their mind and it can be very frustrating for them to deal with passive people. As a Scorpio, you would never date anyone who was comfortable being lazy and complicated.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Leo
Sagittarius is different when it comes to dating; they would much rather be in a relationship where they are free to come and go as they please instead of feel like they are being tied down. This can make them great matches for some signs and disasters for others.
If you are a Sagittarius, then you know how much clingy people can bother you. You don't want to feel like dating someone is a chore, but if your guy is a little introverted or clingy, it can sabotage the relationship.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Pisces
Capricorn is one of the most responsible signs, which makes them very reliable when it comes to relationships. They have great manners and know how to control themselves in public, which also makes them great partners to take home to meet the family.
You know how to have a good time, but you also know when it's time to get serious. When you date, you want your significant other to have the same values as you. Being with a guy who is all about doing their own thing or always in party mode isn't going to work out for you.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Gemini
Aquarius' are deep thinkers and very independent, which makes them the most mysterious sign. They don't always feel comfortable opening up to others unless they are very close, which can make it hard for them to date new people. Aquarius is always willing to try new things and can also be very social.
Because you are not very emotional or sentimental, you have a hard time connecting with people who are. Your guy should respect your wishes to stay independent in a relationship instead of making you feel like you don't care about dating. Find someone who is more like you instead of more like what someone wants you to be.
Your Least Compatible Sign: Cancer
It doesn't matter if it is with friends or significant others, Pisces extends the same amount of compassion to everyone in their life. They enjoy getting in touch with their emotions and being as open as possible with the person they are dating.
Pisces can have an open mind to new things, but if someone acts like a know-it-all around you, it can be a huge turn-off. You would much rather bond over things you both like instead of feel like you are being talked down to. Stay away from guys who act condescending because they think they know everything.
