The Very GOOD And Very BAD About Loving You, Per Your Zodiac Sign

Zodiac, Self

On the plus side, you're amazing!

Dating can challenge even the most easy-going person, especially those first dates. You don’t know the person at all or even that well and you’ve committed to spending some time with them.

What if you don’t have anything to talk about or you forget what it was that you had thought beforehand to talk about? What if they just don’t get your sense of humor or they have no sense of humor?


And what about chemistry? You need to have at least a spark of sexual chemistry, something that contributes to your initial attraction. But how do you make sure that it’s there? Are you supposed to just feel it?

Dating can be like running through an obstacle course: you think you know what you’re doing and then all of a sudden you find yourself doing a face plant in a mud ditch.

You want to present the best version of you that you can but you don’t want to pretend to be someone you’re not. You want to be honest, but you don’t want to scare your date off. You’re like anyone else and there are good and not-so-good points to dating you.

Astrology can help us to learn about ourselves and to see ourselves from new perspectives. Our zodiac signs can tell us a lot about our personalities, our motivations, and even our emotions. Why do we get nervous on a first date or feel as if we’re being awkward and weird when we don’t feel as if we’re in control of the situation?


While it’s probably not a good idea to give your date a printed out copy of the good and bad reasons of dating you, it can’t hurt to familiarize yourself with them. Here’s the good and bad of dating you, based on your zodiac sign.
