It's better to be alone than to be with the wrong person.

Do you wait for the right partner to come along, hanging on every word of your horoscope? Unfortunately, there’s no formula or guarantee, and you just have to take a chance that if you’re open to finding love, it will find you.

When you’re lonely, it can seem like jumping into a relationship, even one that doesn’t seem right, is the best thing to do. We all know that phrase “He may not be Mr. Right, but he’s fine as Mr. Right Now.”

It’s been said that the best way to find someone is to be in a relationship with someone else, but that’s faulty thinking. Being with someone that doesn’t excite you and doesn’t provide you with everything you need in a partner isn’t fair to you and it isn’t fair to them. You can just mark time with someone because you’re too afraid of being alone.

There is actually nothing lonelier than being in a relationship with someone that you don’t really love and who bores you. However, it’s far better to be alone and to be living your best possible life than settling with someone. 

It’s more than okay to hold out on love until you find someone who is more suitable for you. You may lose faith that your perfect partner is out there but the more you cultivate new interests and the ability to have fun on your own, the better things will be for you.

And you can do that through astrology. Here are the best zodiac sign pairings and how it can change your love life.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You need to wait for the person who supports your wild ideas and doesn't make you feel ridiculous for coming up with them. Your adventuresome spirit shouldn't be dampened by someone who is afraid of it; you want a partner who celebrates it.

You don't need to be with someone who is intimidated by your confidence, energy, and enthusiasm. If they don't get you, they need to get gone, so when you find someone who appreciates you, there's room in your life for them.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You don't need to be with someone who battles you on everything. You are very firm about what your opinions and beliefs, and if someone is purposely antagonistic, your relationship will turn into an ongoing tug of war that will inevitably end in a stand-off.

You need to wait until you can find someone who is flexible, who doesn't need to get in the last word all the time, and someone who can compromise. A relationship where both parties are incredibly stubborn will not work and will end up destroying the participants.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You need to be with someone you can talk to. This may seem basic but sometimes we can get overcome by lust and forget that once the intense passion dissipates, we need to be able to communicate with our partners, and communication is extremely important to you.

You need someone who is brilliant, can speak on almost any subject, and has a fantastic sense of humor. It's not enough for them to be a great listener, your ideal partner needs to be just as communicative as you are.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You need someone who cares about people. If your partner is just nodding their head and going through the motions when you're telling them about something that upset you, then they're not for you.

You need someone who is empathetic, compassionate and is simply a loving person. If they don't have as large of a heart as you do, they'll never truly understand you and that will make you feel sad.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You might think you just want someone who supports you and stays in the shadows, but ultimately, you wouldn't respect them. You need someone who is just as dynamic and charismatic as you are. Someone who is ambitious and driven.

You need someone who keeps you on task and challenges you to be the best version of yourself that you can be. You need your equal or better so that you can reach the highest heights.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You need someone who gets you out of your own head. You tend to be extremely critical of yourself and other people which is draining. It's amazing you ever get anything done with your constant overthinking.

Your ideal partner is someone who embraces the messiness of life and who will show you the joys of spontaneity and taking risks. If you could relax a little, you'd be amazed at how much better you'd feel.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You need to wait for the person who doesn't need you to always be positive and charming — the person who finds the real you more fascinating than the social you. You sometimes feel as if you always have to be on, which can be exhausting.

Your perfect partner is someone who appreciates all the aspects of your personality, even the ones that you're reticent to share with others.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You need to wait for the person who hasn't settled and isn't complacent. You need someone who is always learning and growing. You need someone who will never betray you but that you'll still be able to trust.

They're dependable without being dull. You don't care what they're interested in as long as they're excited and passionate about it.

Your best zodiac pairing: Capricorn

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You need someone who is there for you, but who doesn't tie you down. You don't want to be trapped in a relationship, just thoroughly supported.

They need to have enough self-confidence that they don't feel threatened when you want to go off on your own or if you want to spend time with your friends. You're a free-spirit and would resent a partner who emotionally captured you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You need a partner who has their head on straight and who won't put you down for wanting to accomplish your goals.

Your ideal partner knows how important work and play both are, and while they would encourage you to pursue your goals, they'd also make sure that you practiced self-care and that you didn't work 24/7. Vacations are necessary for a balanced life, and your perfect partner knows that.

You feel as if you can be your true self when you're with someone who doesn't try to change you.

You need to wait for the partner who isn't trying to con you. You want someone who isn't going to use your selflessness and generosity against you.

You can be overly trusting and will give nearly everyone the benefit of the doubt, and you need a partner who will look after your best interests and will intercept those who are only out for themselves.
