Uh-oh...

None of your relationships have been working out lately. Oh sure, you’ve had high hopes and have thought, “This time I’ve found the person I’m going to be with forever,” but something always seems to happen that makes your relationship fall apart.

If you’re honest with yourself and let yourself look back on the relationship with a clear vision, you see that most of the problems were instigated by you, proving that it’s not them, it’s you. You’re unintentionally sabotaging your relationships.

There can be a myriad of reasons why you subconsciously don’t want a relationship to work out. You might be afraid that no matter how good things are, it still won’t work out and you’ll be left in an emotional heap. Or, maybe if the relationship is healthy, you’ll feel tied down.

It’s hard to be completely truthful with ourselves because we often see things about who we really are that aren’t attractive or that don’t meld with our view of who we are.

If you pride yourself on your independence, maybe a relationship makes you feel as if you’re too dependent or clingy and that doesn't go with the image you have of yourself. But if we’re not honest with ourselves then we’re destined to make the same mistakes repeatedly.

There are times, however, that no matter how closely we look at ourselves and our behavior, we still don’t see the mistakes that we’re making. It could be that we don’t look deep enough or that we’re in such deep denial that it would take a therapist to help dig them out.

You might be fine cycling through love relationships as if they’re binge-worthy television series. But if you want some idea of what it is that you’re doing to destroy your love life, astrology is here to help.

Here are the zodiac signs that suck at love.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You tend to be impulsive and impatient. You want to do what you want to do and you want to do it now. If your partner isn't as quick as you are to jump on board there can be conflict. You tend to act without thinking and without taking into consideration anyone else's needs or wants. The worst part is that it doesn't even register to you how self-absorbed and self-centered you're being.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You're too possessive of your things and of people. It takes you a long time to let down your guard and let somebody into your life, but once you do, you hang on to them with a steel grip. When you have the mindset that someone is yours, they can feel stifled, choked, and may feel as if they can no longer be with you. You need to loosen up your hold on people or you'll lose them for sure.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You tend to lack consistency so that your partner never knows what they're getting with you. One moment you think that you should get married; the next, marriage is the last thing you want to do. It's challenging to know what you feel especially when the next day it might be completely different. You think this trait makes you interesting and exciting but it's actually frustrating and annoying. When someone is consistent, you know that you can depend on them and that they're reliable, but when they're inconsistent, it's difficult to trust that they'll be there when you need them.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You can be overly emotional. Everybody has good days and bad days and the variety of emotions that go with them. Everything for you is worthy of high drama. You're like every character in an opera. Your emotions are constantly on high and they don't have to be. There are some things that you need to just brush off and move on, rather than go full-on meltdown about. Your moodiness can be exhausting for those around you.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Your jealousy has been known to damage a relationship or two. It's strange because you're very confident and have a healthy ego and yet, sometimes you get very jealous. The green-eyed monster is not a role that's well suited for you. You need to be confident that your love knows how good they have it with you. If they don't, there are plenty of people who would love to trade places with him and be with you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Because of your tendency to be hypercritical of others, you can be extremely judgmental. It's not that you think you're perfect — you're fully aware of your own flaws — it's just that you expect your partner to be practically flawless. It's hard to be with someone that you feel is judging you and finding that you don't measure up. It puts a strain on any relationship. Nobody likes to be judged, even if you feel it's for their own good.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're not discriminating enough. That means that you tend to get so excited when somebody likes you that you convince yourself that you like them too and the next thing you know you're in a relationship that isn't working or satisfying at all. You should just hold back a little before you get involved with someone and see if you're honestly attracted to them. You'll find somebody, even if you don't go for the first person who shows interest.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Sometimes things don't work out in your love life because you're too manipulative. You have no problems coercing or making someone do what you want them too. Your partner isn't your puppet; they need to make their own decisions and be responsible for their own actions. You need to trust that they'll do right by you and that if they make a mistake, they'll learn from it. No one wants to be used for someone else's gain.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You tend to see things the way you want to see them and when reality interrupts your fantasy, you have trouble coping. It's fantastic that you're so optimistic and open to things, but you need to be prepared (or at least aware) when things go awry. When you don't deal with the realities of a relationship, it's just going to break down and disappear. When things don't work out with you and a partner, you just move on to somebody new, never changing or trying to see what went wrong, and that's why you are one of the zodiac signs that suck at love.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You're convinced that your relationship is going to go wrong and so you just wait for it to fail. Here's the thing: not every relationship ends in heartbreak; in fact, with some breakups, there's no animosity or bitterness and the couple remains friends. Don't always expect the worst and maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised. Besides, if you're all gloom and doom, you might miss all the joy that the relationship can bring, even if at some point down the line it ends. Don't underestimate your strength and ability to survive.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Sometimes you ruin a good thing just because you want to stir the pot. You think it's entertaining to be contrary or to make trouble. It may be interesting to see how someone reacts when you deliberately piss them off but it doesn't bode well for your relationship. You can keep things interesting in other more positive ways. Being a jerk doesn't make you fascinating, it makes you frustrating and difficult to trust, and it makes you one of the zodiac signs that suck at love.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You tend to be over-sensitive and can make your partner feel as if they have to be extremely careful not to upset you. This kind of dynamic puts a huge strain on a relationship and it can make your partner feel as if they can't be themselves or express anything that might bother you. People will only expel so much energy on a relationship; after a while, walking on egg shells becomes less and less attractive. You're not always the victim and your partner shouldn't feel that they need to treat you as someone extremely fragile.
