Love, Zodiac

Not him again.

Have you ever taken a look at the list of romantic partners and guys that you’ve been attracted to and noticed that you had a type? What about the kind of men you always seem to attract — do you have a type there too?

It’s not uncommon for women to consistently go for the same kind of guy repeatedly, even if things never worked out with them, especially if the wrong type seems to be the only type they attract.

You might try to break the habit of constantly dating the mama’s boy. You think that you’ve found a guy who is independent, ambitious, and successful, but that doesn't mean that he can make a decision without checking in with his mom first. You might be the kind of large-hearted individual who wants to help other people, so you seem to go for the guy who is always unhappy.

Surely, once you’re in their life, they’ll see how great things can be. But nope, no matter how happy and fun you are, they always are gloomy and depressed.

You make a promise to yourself that you won’t attract the wrong men again, but what can you do when you attract the same type over and over again? It’s not your fault for always falling for the same kind of guy, especially if that’s the only kind that seems to be interested in you.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You have a strong personality and like guys who can handle your fire without putting out your spark, so you tend to attract overly masculine types. You like them to be strong but not controlling which is why relationships with these macho types tend to not work out. You like competition and you need someone who is willing to lose sometimes, not someone who is too much of a he-man to ever lose.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You like the finer things in life and honestly, you enjoy being treated like a queen so you tend to attract guys who will spoil you. However, if they have nothing other than presents and dinner reservations at fabulous restaurants to offer you, you're going to lose interest fast. You like how he wants to give you the world and you want the relationship to work, but if a large bank account is all he's got, you won't be into it for long.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You tend to attract secretive guys. You take it as a challenge and that you'll be able to put their secrets out of them, but sometimes there's not much there to discover. Just because someone is mysterious, it doesn't necessarily mean they're interesting. They may be hiding the fact that they're boring.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're very caring and loving and you seem to attract men who need a mother figure in their life. The only people you'll play mommy to is your own children, not a potential date. You can help it if you have a nurturing personality. You want a relationship of equals, not one where your compassion and sensitivity is taken advantage of.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are everything, so you tend to attract the kind of guys who aren't interested in the real you but the idea of you. They're attracted to how you present yourself and how you keep people entranced, and as long as you deliver on this perfect persona, they're hooked. But the minute you let down your guard and have a real emotion, they get less interested. They want their idealized version of you, not you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You tend to attract guys who are fixer-uppers. There isn't anything you can't fix and damaged guys flock to you, hoping that you'll be able to fix them too. But it's not your job to repair someone who is broken. You want someone who is determined and patient, not someone who needs constant reassurances.

You're pretty hard to resist so it's no surprise that the wrong guys are attracted to you. Hell, everyone is attracted to you. You don't want to hurt anyone and you tend to want to avoid confrontation, so if you don't watch it, you may find yourself stuck with wrong guys. You really don't want to be with someone who can't access his feelings or who feeds off conflict.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You attract guys who let you dominate them and who are afraid to challenge you. You don't want someone who is always agreeing with you because they're scared of you... what fun is there in that? You're assertive and bold and that tends to attract weak guys who want someone to control them. You need someone who can stand their ground and is just as fierce and passionate as you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You attract the wrong type of guys who think they can tame you and tie you down. Hah, good luck with that. You have an adventurous spirit and an ordinary life is not for you. If a guy isn't willing to be your partner and travel the world, then he's not right for you. Anyone who thinks they can change you and turn you into someone who thrives on commitment couldn't be more wrong.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You attract the wrong men because they think that when you say you want a marriage, family, and home, you mean some time far off in the future, not anytime soon. They could not be more wrong. You may be young but that doesn't mean that you don't know exactly what it is that you want from life or that you don't know what you need to do to get it. You'll date because you already have an endgame in mind: financial and familial security.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You attract the wrong men because they become obsessed with how smart you are and don't think they need to reach up to your level and that you'll come down to theirs. The truth is if a guy has nothing to offer you intellectually, you're not interested. You need to be stimulated because you don't do boring well. You want someone who sees the world with their own perspective and who can teach you a thing or two, not the equivalent of a mental leech.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You attract the wrong men because of your artistic spirit. These guys have this fantasy of them being your muse and inspiring you to create something amazing. But if they're not creative or intelligent, you won't be interested; you'll barely be able to tolerate them. They can be a patron of the arts for you and be supportive of your work, you just don't want to have a personal relationship with them.
