One of the biggest challenges in a relationship is when you feel that you're the only one in your relationship who cares. Your partner isn't doing their fair share and they’re relying on you to do whatever it is that needs to be done. You don't need a relationship where your partner makes no effort at all and you end up doing everything. Ha! Even your horoscope has warned you about staying out of a situation like that.

If your partner isn’t pulling their relationship weight, why are you with them anyway? You could probably have the same benefits by being single that you’re getting in a one-sided relationship.

When someone doesn't put in enough of an effort, they’re effectively telling you that your relationship doesn't mean very much to them and that they don’t care if it thrives, survives, or goes away.

One of the ways that we learn about other people and the things that are important to them is by their actions. If your partner is too lazy to plan a date with you or help with the household chores, what does that say about your importance in their life?

Maybe they don’t really have much interest in taking your relationship to the next level but are too weak to make a clean break. They might be passively trying to get you to end things so that they don’t look like the villain but the victim of a bad relationship.

If your partner ultimately feels very little regarding your relationship, you need to know so that you can take charge and end things. You want to be with someone who puts in as much as you do in a relationship. You want them to feel excited and fortunate to be with you, not someone who is just killing time before their next relationship.

We all deserve relationships that are fulfilling, healthy, exciting, and help us to grow. Don’t make do with the relationship you have if it’s not giving you anything and forcing you to make all the effort.

Here are the zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends and how he's not doing nearly enough for your relationship.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He only sees you when it's convenient for him. As long as you pick the place, make the reservations, and it doesn't interfere with his plans, he'll spend time with you. He makes it clear that if something (or someone) better comes along, then he's gone. You don't need to feel like a placeholder, so move on and find somebody who makes you feel special.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

If you invite him to a theatrical event like a play, concert, or dance recital, he will go but will complain about it the whole time. Afterward, he acts as if he did you a favor and uses the outing as leverage to get you to do the things he wants. When he acts like an ass and ruins your fun, you've really got to wonder if it's worth it. You'd probably have a better time with a friend or if you made it a date with yourself.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

He's never the first person to say "I love you" and he never initiates any kind of love talk or affection session. It's as if he doesn't want to look bad or leave you hanging, so he'll respond when you tell him that you love him but his love for you isn't something he feels deeply about. If you never mentioned the word love, then he'd never say it in any context that has to do with you.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He doesn't text you when he wakes up in the morning, when he goes to bed at night, when something amazing happens or when he's bored. He'll respond to your texts but he takes no initiative of his own in regards to communicating with you. He doesn't care about your day or if you got sick at work, he just blindly goes about his business without considering how you're doing.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

He seems to have missed the lesson on give and take when it comes to sex as he never considers your needs at all. It's all about him and what gives him pleasure. He's completely selfish when it comes to sex and so full of himself that you get the feeling that it really doesn't matter if it's you or someone else in his bed.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

He never shares with you. This may not seem like a big initially but the more it continues the bigger the problem becomes. He won't allow you to take a bite of his cake or make room for your toothbrush in his bathroom, and if you're feeling chilly, he won't even let you borrow one of his sweatshirts. He cares more about his comfort than yours. He won't even share one of your Facebook posts, making him one of the zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

He remembers the date of your birthday but does nothing for it. He plans no celebration, doesn't buy you a gift, a card, or flowers. It's not that he doesn't have the money for a small token of his esteem, he just doesn't want to expel any effort regarding your birthday. However, if you don't make his birthday a huge deal, there will be trouble.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

You're fascinated by him and his life and you're always asking him questions about it. He, on the other hand, never asks anything about you or your life. All he knows about you are things that you've volunteered. He doesn't read your writing or go to your games, and he really couldn't care less about any work-drama you may be going through.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

Look, you're an independent woman and can definitely pay for your own dinner but it's annoying and telling that he'll never pick up the check or pay for anything. He'll pay for himself or let you pay for him but he never offers to treat you to dinner or the movies or anything. Yes, he's frugal but never paying for anything isn't exactly an attractive trait to have.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

He never wants to spend any time with your friends and family nor does he invite you to do things with his nearest and dearest. He's perfectly happy that you spend your holidays separately. He doesn't seem to want any kind of tie that could make a breakup messier than it has to be.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

zodiac signs that make bad boyfriends

He puts in no effort in how he looks when he's with you. Sure, hanging around the house, watching Netflix in your ratty old pajamas is fine but he dresses like a slob even when the two of you go out. You've seen his closet, so you know he has some nice clothes. But that freshly showered, well-groomed guy that you saw when you first met seems to be hidden far away somewhere. If he can't even shave for your birthday dinner, that's a problem.
