Why Love Never Works Out For You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

zodiac signs who can't find love
Love, Zodiac

It's kinda your fault.

Trying to find someone you like is complicated; trying to find someone who likes you back can be even more complicated at times, no matter how many daily horoscopes you read. These days it feels like you’re either all in or the other person is all in, or the happy medium is lacking, at least in my life.

Finding someone you actually mesh well with collectively is a lot harder than I’d like to admit. There are so many expectations and high standards these days that it’s hard to be the “perfect person” someone is looking for.

Sometimes it feels like I’m running in never ending circles trying to capture the attention of people who don’t even think twice about looking my way, and there are times when I have ignored four texts in a row because I’m just not feeling it (and am confused about how they are because there is NO connection).

Love is complicated and messy, especially in the era of modern dating and ghosting. You NEVER know what someone else is thinking and you can’t ask either because it makes you look, well... crazy. It’s hard to know if you’re exclusive because that’s what it seems like, but you’re not entirely sure if they’re still dating other people or not.

It’s confusing to know if you should send a double text since you haven’t heard anything in hours but really want the conversation to continue. It leaves you to start over thinking and questioning everything, but nothing really makes sense — not when it comes to love and relationships. It’s complicated and confusing, and somehow you always end up alone. It sucks.

Most of us don’t know what our dating future holds, but here’s some insight on the zodiac signs who can't find love. Maybe next time you’ll have a better shot at finding someone who sticks around.​

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Love never works out for you because of your quick jealousy of things you don’t need to be jealous over. You let these things consume you and you become very direct about it. Confrontation is usually a good thing but you are very strong and forward with your assumptions, which can be a turn-off. You are very quick to assume that something is going out without actually knowing, which leads you to play mind games. The best bet you have in love is to just learn to let things be, meaning fewer impulsive actions will more than likely help you out.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Love never works out for you because you find the flaws in people who are interested in you and you push them away before even giving them a real chance. You think you’re doing yourself a favor by staying so guarded but you’re not. And once you do finally find someone you can see yourself with you bombard them with affection. You’re a very possessive, "all in" kind of person and you let those things take over your relationship far too early in. You’re scared that you’ve allowed yourself to open up and be too vulnerable, that you become paranoid they’re going to leave.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You're one of the zodiac signs who can't find love because you’re so hard to please and keep happy. You can’t stand routine, which is fine, but it makes it difficult for a partner to keep up with you. You don’t always think your impulsive decisions through and you definitely fail to remember how your decisions can affect others. The best thing for you to do would be to slow down and consider someone else’s needs instead of only focusing on your own.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Love never works out for you because you dive into the relationship way too fast. You’re heavily family oriented and you’d love your own but the person you just started hooking up with isn’t ready to start a family with you yet. All the talk about family and kids is kind of freaking them out.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Love never works out for you because you live for the drama in your relationships. You don’t like when things are going smooth and easy because that’s boring to you, and you’re all about a challenge and being right. You always seem to be making bad relationship choices, even though you’re a boss in almost all the other areas of your life. It’s hard to find a partner that can keep up with you and your level of control, but once you loosen up things might start looking up for you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Love never works out for you because you’re the zodiac’s “perfectionist.” Your extremely high expectations usually allow you to shut people down before even giving them a chance. You’d rather be alone than settle and there is NOTHING wrong with that (seriously, good for you!). But you occasionally find yourself in a relationship with someone who you try to “fix” and that leaves you frustrated and drained more often than not, which is why you end up alone again. Remember: it’s not your job to fix everyone.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Love never works out for you because you’re living in your own little fantasy, instead of reality. You have very high expectations of a partner and that’s fine, but you have to remember that just like you, they are only human. You constantly compare your partner to someone else or your relationship to someone else’s and it makes them feel very insecure. It’s important to remember the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Love never works out for you because of your spitefulness and your jealousy. You hate any moment that your partner doesn’t spend with you and that’s a lot of pressure on them to make sure you’re always happy. You also remember everything people did to wrong you and you’re not shy about getting revenge at all. You have a hard time letting go and you always bring up the one mistake people made, and that’s intimidating for a partner. The level of possessiveness can make it difficult for your relationship to function normally.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Love never works out for you because deep down you’re terrified of commitment so you never allow yourself to fully open up. You let your partner in little by little but you’re still reserved enough to the point it impacts your relationship. You’re scared of being trapped and hurt if things don’t work out (most likely because of your own guardedness) so you keep people at an arm's distance at all times. You’re always looking for the next big adventure and you don’t want to miss out of it because of having someone romantically in your life so you’re constantly cautious.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Love never works out for you because you’re slow to love and you’re even slower to trust. You always have to have control in your relationship until you feel you can be completely comfortable with your partner, but that takes a while. You also tend to put responsibilities before self-care and self-fulfillment, putting your relationships on hold for other parts of your life. You have to start trusting your heart more and allowing people in.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You're one of the zodiac signs who can't find love because you’re completely unpredictable to your partner. You’re always searching for love and your soulmate, but you rarely ever slow down to enjoy the person you’re with because you’re constantly thriving new connections and relationships. You guard your independence fiercely like a partner is going to strip you of that. You have to decide what you want and stick with it.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Love never works out for you because you allow people to treat you like a doormat. You are not a doormat. You love to be in love but you have to stick up for yourself at the same time. You break your back for other people who wouldn’t lift a finger for you and that makes it too easy for them. You complain about the way you’re being treated but you won’t make any moves to do anything about it. Stop jumping into the next relationship and focus on yourself; you may find the person who does make love work out.
