What is he hiding from you and the rest of the world?

It’s hard to open ourselves up. When you allow yourself to be vulnerable, you're taking a chance that someone will use your vulnerability against you. There are some things that we tend to keep to ourselves.

We want to present the best of who we are when we meet new people or acquaintances. That's probably why we don't usually reveal all the negative things our horoscope has said about us recently. We’d rather they think we have some mystery than know the confused, flaky, and wrong people we sometimes are.

People get good at putting on a brave face or rejecting help and comfort when they need it the most. Men tend to hold back on sharing their pain, not wanting others to think of them as weak.

But when you’re in a relationship with someone, you hope that they’re sharing all their qualities — the good, bad, and the weird. Sometimes we can think we know everything about our partner and still be surprised.

The truth is some things should be kept hidden if they’re not causing harm. We all have a right to keep some things private. There are times when bringing these hidden traits out in the open are the best course of action and other times when it’s okay to keep them buried.

And when it comes to astrology, the secrets of each zodiac sign are something we should all be aware of. Use this when you think of that new guy in your life so you can better understand his personality.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

An Aries man doesn't want people to know how incredibly self-centered he can be. He may seem like someone who is caring and unselfish, but make no mistake: he is always at the top of his list.

He's extremely self-absorbed and can spend hours talking about himself and his adventures. It's not that he's just self-sufficient, he's got a huge ego and is very self-involved.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus doesn't want others to know how passive he can be. It can appear that he's sticking to his guns and refusing to back down on an issue, but the truth is he just doesn't feel like taking on the fight. Sometimes he just wants to let other people do all the work and not put up a fuss.

He can't go full throttle on everything; it's too exhausting. There are times that, for a Taurus, it's better for him to just not care or get involved.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini doesn't want others to know how incredibly fickle he can be. One moment he's completely consumed by a subject and the next he couldn't be more bored.

The same goes for people. He wants to be magnanimous and find something to hold his interest with every topic or person, but he's very changeable and a bit flighty.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers don't want other people to know how much they need to be around other people. Sure, they like their alone time, but they need interactions with others; in fact, they depend on it.

It's crucial for a Cancer to have give and take and to share their experiences with other people. They need to be inspired by music, art, film, and the theater. Cancers may retreat into their shell from time to time, but you can be sure they'll leave it for some good company.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos don't want anyone to know that they need their alone time. Sure, they thrive at being around people and love to have an audience, but there are times when they need to be able to decompress and relax without witnesses.

They're as vulnerable and self-doubting as anyone else but they feel they have an obligation to put on an upbeat, happy persona when they're around other people. If they don't have their downtime, they feel as if they might self-destruct.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos don't want people to know that sometimes they don't have all the answers. They know that people depend on them to have the solution to a problem or know what to do to fix something. But there are times when Virgos just don't know.

They fear if they admit that they don't know something, it will seem as if they're completely unknowledgeable about everything. However, no one has all the answers; if they did, they'd be robots.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras don't want people to know how judgmental they are. They really strive to see all perspectives in an argument and they try never to take sides. They are kind and benevolent, but they can be critical of others and the way they behave.

Libras may not share their opinions all the time (it could create conflict) but you can bet they have some strong ones.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios don't want people to know what big softies they are. Yes, they're strong, passionate, and can be fierce, but they have incredibly soft centers.

Scorpios can be very sentimental, romantic, and the smallest gesture can melt their heart, so they put on a brave face and pretend that nothing gets to them. When they're in love, they turn to mush.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians don't want others to know how extremely insecure and vulnerable they sometimes are. They like to come off as free-spirited and without a care in the world, but they have some dark nights of the soul where they question their entire existence.

They wonder if they're worthy of the gifts they've received. Sagittarians don't want people to even suspect that they have self-doubts and will cover up those insecurities with humor.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns don't want anyone to know that there are some things that leave them completely stumped. They know that they have the reputation of being extremely dependable and for the most part they are, but sometimes they don't know what to do or how to behave.

They may lash out at someone without warning or behave strangely because they feel uncomfortable which makes them want to tread very carefully so they appear to always be in control.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians don't want others to know that they can be cocky and a bit arrogant. Aquarians want to come off as free-spirited and easy going but there's a part of them that truly believes that they're amazing and it's hard to keep it to themselves.

Aquarians are dope, and they know that saying it could turn people off, but it's hard not to shout it to the world.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces don't want other people to know how avoidant they can be. If they don't want to face someone they're in a fight with or don't want to be called out by their employer, a Pisces will just avoid them.

They have their ways to avoid conflict, but if all else fails, they'll just escape to the fantasy world in their head until they feel stronger and more capable of handling the issue.
