The stars say there's always room for improvement.
Wouldn't it be great if we could find a partner who was exactly like us? What would it be like to be with someone who had the same tastes, likes, and dislikes as us? Answer: it would be just as aggravating and confusing as being in a relationship with someone different than us.
While it might seem like the ideal situation, we can't be in a relationship with ourselves; besides, most of us are unaware of what we're like in a relationship. No matter how aware we are of our idiosyncrasies, quirks, and weaknesses, we'd probably still be surprised at how annoying we can be.
If you asked me, I might say that I'm a fantastic person to be in a relationship with and that everything I do is in the best way possible. Still, I suck a lot of the time. I try to be considerate of other people, to be kind and thoughtful, but I'm sure a bunch of the time I come off as self-centered, whiny, and full of myself.
We can't ever see the full picture when it comes to our own selves and our behavior. The things we think of as perfectly normal — such as my almost rabid observances of sell-by-dates — may come off as illogical, abnormal and/or odd to others. Because we have lived with ourselves our whole lives, we think the things we do are what everybody else does and they don't stand out to us as strange.
As it can be challenging to look at ourselves as other people do, astrology can help. Although everyone born under each of the signs are individuals, they still share certain similarities, and it is through the similar types of behavior that we can learn about ourselves.
If we learn about our behavior and how it affects our interactions with others, it can help to make us better partners and improve our relationships. Here's some insight on what you're like in a relationship, according to your zodiac sign.
If you're an Aries, you're very honest, passionate and energetic when it comes to your relationship. You like to do things, have fun, and no challenge is too great for you. You barely give your partner a chance to catch their breath before you're off on another adventure.
You're flirty, but not to the point of being unfaithful — just enough to keep yourself feeling confident. You're never boring or predictable and people envy your relationship from afar because it appears to be vibrant and electric.
There's nothing wrong with being a homebody and you're excellent at it. You and your partner have made your home your haven. You still have date nights; you're not a pair of hermits, but your main focus is your home and your love.
In the way you work to maintain your home, you also do with your relationship, Taurus. You know and accept that relationships take a lot of work and you'll willing to do it. You don't trust easily, but you must have it in your relationship or it won't last.
If you're in a relationship, Gemini, it isn't something that you entered into lightly. You've had many experiences and you love to socialize, so when you commit to one person it's because they captivated not just your heart, but your mind and soul as well.
You need constant intellectual stimulation. Being in a relationship with you isn't just fun, it's about constantly improving your mind, conversation, and seeing the humor in life. You and your partner keep each other on your toes, and they must be a match for you or you would get bored quickly and leave.
Cancer, you give and give, and then give some more. When you're in a relationship, you make it your number one priority. You're compassionate, sensitive, are there for your partner and everything they're feeling, and you expect the same from your partner.
Since your emotions are so close to the surface, you're empathetic with others, and your significant other knows that they can tell you anything and that you'll be there for them with an open heart.
You're dazzling and dynamic, Leo, and people love to be around you. But let's face it: you can be a diva. As long as you get enough attention from your significant other, everything is wonderful, but if you're feeling ignored (even the littlest bit) you'll try to find it somewhere else. When you're feeling good, you're generous and giving and everything is spectacular.
You're on it if anything needs to be fixed or if a problem needs solving, even if it's a problem in your relationship. Some people find you a bit cold and detached, Virgo, but your partner knows that you're not aloof, you're just in your head figuring stuff out. You're a very passionate person and your significant other knows that you'll always be there for them.
You're at your happiest when you're in a relationship and will make sure to keep it a safe place for the both of you, Libra. You aren't the type to get into an argument over nothing, but if something seems blatantly unfair or unjust, you'll fight for it. You have no problem doing whatever you must do to keep your partner happy and smiling.
When you're in a relationship, you're almost consumed by the passion and the intensity you feel. Not everyone is up for the challenge of being in a relationship with you as they aren't for the timid or the underconfident. You're extremely loyal and present, Scorpio, and no one is better than you at the intimate and sexual aspects of a relationship.
You are a very fun person to be in a relationship with as you're funny, enjoy life, and love new experiences. You don't take things too seriously which can be frustrating when the need for maturity and seriousness arises, Sagittarius. As long as your significant other is flexible and understanding of your need to take off every now and then, you're good.
You feel most comfortable when you take your time with a relationship, Capricorn. You know you're the whole package when it comes to being marriage/relationship material. You've got your adult side where you're hardworking, dependable and mature, and then you have your freakier side that's wild when it comes to sex and pleasing your partner.
There's no one on earth that's as accepting of their partner as you are, Aquarius. In fact, your love and acceptance encourage them to shine and be their authentic selves. You're very independent within your relationship and need to be stimulated mentally. You can't take too many displays of emotion but you are there when your significant other needs you. When it comes to relationships, you'll do whatever needs to be done.
You meant it when you told your family and friends that you wanted to grow old with your partner. You'll do whatever you need to do to keep your relationship healthy and thriving. Pisces, you'll do anything for your partner that includes romantic gestures.
