Boyfriend Relationship Attraction Zodiac Sign Astrology
Love

Please just STOP.

When you first met your boyfriend, you probably tried to put your best foot forward so that he would see what a great catch you are, right? Especially at the beginning of a relationship, we always try to hide the crazy a little bit until they get to know the real us (well, that's what I did).

You don't want the potential love of your life to know that you like to eat in bed or that you love watching terrible reality television.

Once you hook a guy, though, it's easier for you to be completely yourself ... warts and all. That said, you might often try to subdue some of your craziness, especially if it ends up just being annoying to your man, not adorable.

Maybe your hair gets caught in the bathroom drain or you listen to music way too loud, but whatever the case may be, you should ALWAYS want your significant other to be honest with you, even if that means that he sometimes brings up the things he wishes you wouldn't do.

Your zodiac sign might actually be telling you that you're doing something that your guy really wants you to stop doing. If that is the case, there is no reason to feel like your relationship is failing just because you have a few quirks (even though they're probably normal).

Instead, try to see it through his eyes so you can figure out why your habits annoy him. Chances are, he has some that get on your nerves, too.

Find your sign below to figure out what your guy REALLY wants you to stop doing and make the effort to show your man that you are working to make your relationship stronger and more honest (and tell him to do the same).

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Aries Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You are constantly looking for a competition, even in your relationship. It might fine if you want your relationship to challenge you, but when you actively seek out to be number one against your man, all you end up doing is pitting yourself against him.

Try to see your man as your equal, even if that means taking your competitive nature down a few notches. If you can't dial your competitiveness down enough, make time for some friendly competitions between you and your boyfriend so that you have an outlet for your need to be number one. Make it silly or sexy, but remember that it isn't serious, it's just for fun.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)
Taurus Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You love to love and you're good at it, too! You take pride in being great in relationships and being able to make them last. When you're really into someone, you try not to get clingy, but you can end up being overprotective. Whether it is out of love or because you get a little jealous, it can actually drive your significant other away.

You do better when you are close to your man and always connected somehow. When you're dealing with someone who likes their space or lives far away, you can let your overprotective nature turn into neediness. Respecting your guy's need to have time to himself will give YOU alone time, too. Use this introspective time to get to know yourself so that you can be just as good with your man as you are alone.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You sometimes play hard to get when it comes to dating, which can make you seem more attractive. However, when you're in a serious relationship, your playful nature can translate into flakiness VERY quickly. If your indecisiveness makes it hard for you to keep plans, think about how that would make you feel if you were in your boyfriend's position.

If you really care about your guy, work with him to make solid plans for the upcoming week. You'll show him that you want to spend time with him and if something DOES come up, you can take the time to reschedule. Don't let your indecisive nature make you look like a flake in your relationship.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You are very loyal when it comes to relationships and you expect your significant other to put in as much effort into one as you do. You don't always see eye to eye with your guy, especially if you have higher expectations than he does. It may be important to you to set the bar high in a relationship (and that's a good thing!), but don't let that constantly disappoint you if you fall short of your expectations.

You can sometimes let your moodiness overtake your emotions, which can put a strain on your relationship. Don't let yourself be so quick to anger, especially if it doesn't concern your man. Take some time to resolve issues on your own before taking a bad mood out on the guy you love. You don't want to give him the feeling that he's causing you to be pessimistic.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
Leo Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You love being the center of attention and that is definitely not lost on your significant other. He might think it's cute that you have such a dominant personality, but when you start to make everything about yourself, you tend to lose the point of an equal relationship.

You might not even realize what you're doing, but when you put the spotlight on yourself all the time, you tend to forget about your man's needs. Take the time to listen to him talk about his day or if something is bothering him so he knows you care. There will always be time to talk about yourself, but there's ALSO time to let your guy talk about himself, too. Practiced give and take in your relationship and you'll see a big difference.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Virgo Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You take a lot of pride in being a serious person and when you work hard, that's when you're happiest. However, you can sometimes take things a little bit too seriously, especially in your relationship. Whether your boyfriend is teasing you or your plans for a romantic evening don't pan out the way you wanted them to, you can take it a little harder than it needs to be.

Remember that there are just as many fun times in a relationship as there are serious ones and that your man is always on your side, even if he teases you about your serious nature. Take the time to be a little goofy with your guy so that he knows you can mix work and play.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Libra Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You love being able to make your significant other and try hard to make sure that he is happy in whatever you do. This makes you a wonderfully diplomatic partner and your guy knows it. However, you can often go above and beyond to make him happy without thinking about what YOU want.

Your man sees this and wants you to stop trying to please everybody. Instead of seeming gracious, you end up looking like a doormat. Put yourself first when it concerns your needs and THEN you can think of others. No one (especially your boyfriend) will blame you for taking care of yourself first.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Scorpio Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

Before you really get to know someone, you can be very secretive in order to protect yourself. When you finally find the one, your love for him can make you want to open yourself up completely, even if your significant other isn't ready yet. Instead of getting annoyed when he does exactly what you do, understand that he is making sure that you are worth it, just like you did.

Your passionate and dominant nature can be a little overwhelming at times, but you should never stop working on your relationship. Don't be a hypocrite when your man acts the same way you do; he might be trying to protect himself from heartbreak. Remember that you can relate to his actions and way of thinking.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)
Sagittarius Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You are able to charm anyone around you with your smooth words, which makes you incredibly attractive. Your guy loves that you can still flirt with him, even after months or years of being together. This can be a good quality to have, but you can sometimes take it too far and get yourself into trouble.

Your relationship should be based on trust and honesty, especially when you and your guy have differences. You don't always have to stretch the truth just to placate your man and it can end up doing you more harm than good. Remember to talk from your heart so that he knows you aren't just saying anything you can to make him happy.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)
Capricorn Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You are a very practical person who tends to see relationships turning into something serious. You appreciate being with someone who values family and traditional values just like you do. However, you often expect things to go south, even if your relationship is still going strong.

Don't let your moodiness control your relationship. You man will work only as hard as you do, so try to lighten up when you feel yourself expecting the worst. If you let every little thing get you down, your relationship won't last — no matter how serious you are about your guy. Vocalize how you are feeling so that he can help you cheer up. Remember: you two are a team!

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Aquarius Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You have a lot of love in your heart, but it can be extremely hard for you to show it. It is often easier for you to tell your best friends that you love them than it is to tell your boyfriend. Even if you want to be loved, you easily run away from relationships, especially if they are serious.

Take baby steps toward a more emotionally open relationship by talking about your feelings with your boyfriend. If he knows that you DO care about the relationship, it shouldn't make a difference that it takes you a little more time to show it. Don't be afraid to put your heart out there because you might be surprised with the outcome.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Pisces Zodiac Astrology Relationship Attraction

You have such a big heart and a kind soul that it's no wonder you make such a great partner. You take relationships very seriously and you only hope for the best. However, when something goes wrong — be it an argument or just miscommunication — you can get overwhelmed with thinking it's the end.

Even during a little disagreement, you can blame yourself for things going south. Don’t turn yourself into a pessimistic person because it will show your man that you don't want to try to make the relationship work anymore. If the relationship is special to you, try to figure out how to defuse miscommunication until you're both happy again.
