It's all in your head...
Relationships are hard. Especially if the relationship... is only in your head.
He's Just Not That Into You was written for a reason; women, in particular, seem to struggle with the idea of mixed messages that must be deciphered through coded text conversations with all their girlfriends.
Maybe those girlfriends haven't even graduated from detective school themselves, but sometimes, when you're not the one in the situation yourself, it's easier to see things through as they are and call someone out on their bluff. It's also easier to gain perspective because you're not the one with 'everything' to lose.
Then again, if something was never truly ours, what exactly are we losing? If anything, we are stopping ourselves from losing out on more time.
It is difficult enough to navigate your way through dating without having to wonder whether the text that you received means one or a million things. And it's especially cruel to go through the motions while leading somebody else on — trying to get over one person and, in the process, encouraging someone else to fall hard for you without them knowing that you're in love with somebody else.
What if they don't know they're hurting someone else?
Well, there are some zodiac signs that are more flirtatious than others, and when you realize that you are at the center of a situation such as this, it doesn't matter whether you're the one on the flirty end of the line or the one being pursued. Fact of the matter is, at the end of the day, both are hard.
Sometimes people are so friendly that they couldn't truly help who they hurt. At least it often seems this way, especially when you've been on both ends of the line. So the best thing to do in cases such as these, is to determine exactly what you're saying and be more aware of the way that it's being received.
They say that to get over someone, you should get under someone else, but wouldn't it be great if we would make sure that we're all on the same page.
So to make sure you know who might be hurting you — albeit totally unintentionally — or to see if YOU are the one letting your flirty nature get the best of you, take a look at the zodiac signs below.
You have a tendency to think things through, but this might not always be the case when it comes to flirting. You see life in an approach-based way, but you're probably not creating strategic ways to lead others on.
You're also shy, which counteracts the flirtatious act sometimes, but the combination makes for a person that wouldn't want to purposely lead another on just for the sake of an ego boost.
You hate being alone because you correlate being alone with being lonely. Your annoyance at being alone might lead you to constantly engage in witty banter, but you're not great with confrontation, which might create another type of issue.
If someone suggests that you're being flirty and leading them on, you might ignore the issue or deny the comment altogether and get defensive about it.
Just know that you tend to lean more towards being a flirt and this, in turn, can cause you to send out some unintentional signals.
You are so honest — sometimes brutally so. You love to open up, which might lead people to believe that they're special because you're sharing information that seems intimate with them.
However, this is normal behavior for you, and therefore it might create the feeling that there is something going on between two people when, really, you, Scorpio, just see the other as a friend or even acquaintance.
You seem to share your every thought, which is difficult when it comes to decoding — are you just saying that because it's a friendly truth or is there something more behind that truth?
