The Type Of Guy You Have A Weakness For, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Buzz, Love

Does he make you go weak in the knees?

Do you fall for the same kind of guys over and over again? If you do, what is your type of guy?

I hate to admit it but no matter how different the men are that I’ve been involved with, if I look at them all, I’d notice some similarities and commonalities. I tend to like men that are kind, smart, have a fantastic sense of humor and if they have a rather predominate nose, all the better. And while it might be considered old school, having good manners is a huge plus.

But these are just the positive qualities I’m attracted to. I must admit, I also like know-it-alls, people with a touch of arrogance, and if they need saving, I’m the woman for them.

I think the saving thing comes from having a sibling with mental illness that I couldn’t (and wouldn’t at the time) help, so I try to pay it forward with the men I’m involved with to a certain degree. But at some point, I had to be open to the idea that I was the one who needed to be saved and cared for.

I’m strong but no one wants to always be the strong one. Sometimes we need to be the one who is cared for and appreciated.

We tend to repeat our relationships and hopefully learn from our mistakes, but it can be difficult to get out of a pattern, especially if you’re not aware that there is one. You may believe that the people you fall for are arbitrary, but it’s probably less random than you think.

Is it fate, the stars, a chemical reaction, or an agreement you made before you were born (that’s what my psychic thinks) that determines the people who make an impression on your life? We’ll probably never know. Sometimes we have no reason behind having a big reaction to someone.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You can't resist guys who make you chase them and don't give in to your awesomeness too easily. You like to play games and you don't like it when anything comes too easily, even love. You want to pursue, to compete, and to ultimately win them over.

The problem is that there are times when the chase is over and you realize that the person you were pursuing doesn't have much to offer. You need to find someone exciting enough to fascinate you even when they've already been captured.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You tend to fall for guys who are very firm in their convictions and strong in character. However, problems arise when you both lock horns over an issue and neither one of you will compromise. You think you want someone as stubborn as you are, but ultimately, that's not a good idea. Strong is good but intractable is not, and since you're probably not going to become more flexible in your beliefs, you need someone who is willing to consider another point of view rather than their own.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You tend to go for men who are unattainable. You know deep inside that you have commitment issues but if you go for someone who unavailable for various reasons, then it's not you with the problem. However, while your head may think that this is a good way to protect yourself, your heart may not be clued in and can get hurt. It's not that difficult to get emotionally attached to someone who is elusive and beyond your reach, no matter how rational you try to be.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You have a weakness for sweet, almost helpless guys — they're kind of unlucky and a little bit of a downer but they're there for you. Unfortunately, even a little bit broken is still broken and you can't give everything you have to fix someone else and ignore your own needs. Go for someone strong but compassionate, who's comfortable enough financially that they have the freedom to do what they want and the time to be there when you need them.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Your type of guy is someone who is completely enamored with you and could be considered your biggest fan, and while you definitely enjoy the ego-stroking, their total devotion to you comes off as a little too needy and weak for you. You need someone who is just as dazzling and spectacular as you are — an equal who isn't content to follow behind you but someone who stands proudly beside you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You get blinded by beauty and you tend to forget about the important stuff like brains, a sense of humor and kindness. However, you know you can get critical and eventually you're going to see the imperfections. You need someone who is a match for you intellectually, who gets your obscure references and your witty jokes. You deserve so much more than you think.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You tend to go for men who like you first and it doesn't seem to matter how lame or inappropriate they are. Stop selling yourself short. If you find someone, go for it. Why shouldn't you aim for someone that you really like rather than going for someone because it's the easy thing to do? Think about how unharmonious it is when you're with someone that you don't get along with or have nothing in common with.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Love is something of a competition for you and you want the hottest of the hot. You want to win but when you're focused on winning you tend to miss the signs of how that person really isn't for you. You demand a lot from your partners and not everybody has it in them to give.

If they're not an extremely honest person or if they have trouble with you and your many moods, there are going to be issues. You need someone who is your equal and who can take whatever you throw at them and give it right back.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You go weak for a bad boy. You think they're exciting, dangerous, and that they won't try to tie you down. The problem is that often they turn out not to be as free and easy as you think; they turn out to have a whole bunch of needs and problems that you don't really have the wherewithal or the energy to deal with. You like the focus to be on you in a relationship.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

There are two things that people don't know or expect from Capricorns: they have an extremely sexual side to them and they tend to go for the most inappropriate people. Maybe it's because you don't want people to think that because you're reliable and stable you're boring, but it's as if you have a sixth sense for zeroing in on the most inappropriate person to fall for.

And we're not just talking about extreme age differences. The more immature and bizarre they are, the better. Deep down, you know you can't have a future with them, but you try desperately to make it work. Dependability isn't boring, it's what you want in a long-term partner.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You're pretty much open to all different types of guys but if they're not as smart as you or smarter, your initial attraction can turn to disdain or indifference. You need someone who challenges you intellectually and calls you out on your crap. They need to be able to not only appreciate your inventiveness, they need to inspire you with their creativity and brilliance and bring you up to their level.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You tend to get captivated by men with larger than life personalities such as con artists, narcissists, players, and cult leaders. You can be easily led and duped by a good story. What you really need is just a good guy who will love you unconditionally, not take advantage of you or try to change you, and is someone who supports you and admires you. You are so good and kind, and you deserve someone who can truly appreciate you and isn't just after his own agenda.
