How many times have we heard guys label girls as “crazy”? Um, WAY too many times, in my humble opinion (and I'm pretty sure just about every woman would agree with me on this).

In relationships, people are always quick to label girlfriends crazy if they’re a little too emotional or if they ask for a little too much. But are they REALLY crazy?

Sure, many women resort to desperate measures to gain the attention of their male counterparts, but chances are, these ladies aren't ACTUALLY going nuts.

We’ve all heard of the crazy girlfriend trope. The girlfriend who is needy, clingy, emotional, too talkative, jealous ... the list goes on. She's typically the one who acts out or does irrational things ... because she’s simply insane, right

Believe it or not, sometimes it may seem like people act out in CRAZY ways — but there’s usually a good reason behind their behavior.

For example, men will call a girlfriend “needy” when in reality, it’s her partner who simply doesn’t know how to meet her needs. Same with "naggy".

If you take a step back and look at the situation from her point of view, you’ll see that she’s definitely NOT crazy. There IS a reason behind her emotions and her behavior. 

If you want to find out about how people act in relationships, you can look to astrology and someone's horoscope for a little more insight into their character, their traits and the way they typically handle different situations.

All zodiac signs seem a LITTLE crazy every once in a while (boys and girls alike), but there’s an explanation for almost everyone's behavior, and resorting to name calling and stereotypical assumptions is just NOT COOL.

So, if you find yourself asking, "Is my girlfriend crazy?" and want to find out the REAL reason why these ladies seem to be jumping off the deep end (even though they actually aren't), read on.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

is my girlfriend crazy aries zodiac sign

Aries loves to argue with others. She always wants things to go her way. When her partner doesn’t listen to every little thing she says, she gets mad and can come across as controlling.

She raises her voice, which can be kind of SCARY.

She sometimes seems crazy, but there’s usually a good reason for her behavior. She wants to make sure that her partner really hears her out when she’s upset, so she speaks a little louder.

She’s not trying to dominate her partner; she just wants to make sure she gets her point across. 

If you're having issues with her dominating nature, then TELL her. Doesn't seem so hard, does it? Not everything has to be an argument, and believe it or not, she is NOT trying to control you. So just talk it out.

You might be surprised at how little she actually cares about MAKING you do whatever she wants.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

is my girlfriend crazy taurus zodiac sign

Taurus can seem really possessive. When she falls in love, she gets clingy. She wants to be by her partner’s side all the time.

And she gets jealous whenever her partner isn’t spending every second of the day with her.

Sure, Taurus might benefit from relaxing a bit whenever her partner isn’t by her side (instead of getting possessive and clingy), but she has her reasons for being the way she is.

When she loves someone, she wants to spend a TON of time together. Can you really blame her for that?

Give the girl a break and a bit of time to to slow her roll. And be flattered she likes you enough to stick around.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

is my girlfriend crazy gemini zodiac sign

Gemini "nags" to her partner a lot. She’s the one always asking, “Honey, did you take the trash out yet?”

She constantly reminds her partner what to do, and she really gets on her partner’s case about being responsible.

Sure, she seems totally uptight, but honestly, she simply wants to make sure that her bae is being responsible.

Heck, she wants a little help around the house too. Is that SO much to ask?

She doesn’t want to see her lover slip up in life or in their relationship, so she makes sure to give helpful reminders every once in a while.

Do us a favor: don't call her a nag and sit down with her to see how YOU can help her feel more secure. Sounds pretty simple when we put it like that, right?

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

is my girlfriend crazy cancer zodiac sign

Cancer is extremely sensitive, so the smallest things can easily hurt her feelings. If you so much as offend her even the TINIEST bit, she'll get hurt.

She takes things personally, so if her partner criticizes her for something minor, she's bound to get all teary-eyed. (EW... TEARS!)

Cancer's sensitivity confuses a lot of people, but she's definitely not crazy. Being sensitive is just part of her personality.

She takes criticisms as signs of rejection or inadequacy, so she responds by feeling hurt or getting defensive. You just have to learn to be gentle with her, and selective with the words you're using if you want to make sure her feelings stay intact.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

is my girlfriend crazy leo zodiac sign

Leo is always SO bossy! She’s not afraid to tell things like it is, and she’s not afraid to let her S.O. know exactly how she wants things done. To other people, particularly her boyfriend, she seems pretty overbearing.

But ... she’s not actually trying to be domineering.

Yeah, she likes things to be done in particular ways, but this definitely does NOT make her crazy.

If you're having issues with her controlling too much in your relationship, then she'd appreciate a sit down and some honest conversation. Doesn't seem too hard, does it?

If you like her enough to stay with her, then she's worth the time and effort.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

is my girlfriend crazy virgo zodiac sign

Virgo NEVER accepts her partner’s compliments, and honestly, she tends to beat up on herself more than anything — and it can really get in the way of a lot in her life, along with making her super depressed. No matter the praise, but she refuses to take any of it.

Her boo will insist she’s amazing, gorgeous, and AWESOME. But she will just shake her head and change the subject. This drives him NUTS and often makes guys wonder, "why can’t she just accept a compliment?!"

To others, it seems like Virgo is being unappreciative and actively working to bring herself down in the dumps, but this is just a part of Virgo's personality and something he needs to work through with her — without getting frustrated.

She is shy about accepting praise and has unusually high standards for herself, but take it as a good thing and find a way that works for both of you to show her how much you care (without making her uncomfortable.)

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

is my girlfriend crazy libra zodiac sign

Libra comes across as really, really needy. She’s constantly texting her partner and asking to hang out.

Whenever she needs help for even the SMALLEST things, she’ll call her S.O. Her partner might wonder why she can’t just sit still for ten minutes. GOSH.

Honestly, though, she’s not actually being needy. She simply has NEEDS. (mind. blown.) 

And it’s her partner’s job to be there for her when she needs it. Sure, you can’t attend to her EVERY whim, but she sure as heck deserves someone who is dependable.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

is my girlfriend crazy scorpio zodiac sign

Scorpio is prone to mood swings. One moment, she’ll be so ridiculously happy, and the next, she’ll be down in the dumps. Her mood swings can be confusing to some.

Guys have been known to search, "is my girlfriend bipolar?" You may never know what to expect from her on a given day, but dang, jumping to conclusions much?

Sure, she’s a little more on the emotional side, but that doesn’t mean she’s straight up crazy. And certainly not bipolar — which happens to be a very serious, very REAL illness that a lot of people ACTUALLY deal with.

When strong feelings overwhelm her, she goes on a rollercoaster of feelings, as do a lot of women who tend to live in their own heads and over-think things. It might seem like it’s coming out of nowhere, but there’s usually a good reason for how she's feeling.

Be a good boyfriend and ASK her what's going on. How she feels. What you can do to make her day better. It's not always about you, you know.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

is my girlfriend crazy sagittarius zodiac sign

Sagittarius is that "crazy" partner who comes up with the WILDEST suggestions. When she and you are bored, she doesn’t want to just go on a plain date, she needs to do something that will give her an adrenaline rush.

People think she’s crazy because she wants to do crazy things, like running around an Ikea store or sneaking onto rooftops, but others of us like to call that a nice, healthy dose of spontenaeity.

Which in a lot of men's books is a GOOD trait in a woman.

Sure, she wants to do things that are a little out there, but she definitely isn’t CRAZY. She just wants to have fun! If you can't keep up, that's not her fault.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

is my girlfriend crazy capricorn zodiac sign

Capricorn can seem a little cold to her partners. She gets called crazy because she’s a little TOO unemotional. Sometimes, people question whether or not she actually cares for them at all.

When she is in a relationship, she actually does care for her partner a lot... more than she’d like to admit. But she’s just more reserved and private about her feelings.

Instead, Capricorn tend to express her feelings in small, simple ways that partners are likely to overlook.

She’s not actually as cold as people say she is, and it's your job as her boo to get her to open up and talk to you about how she truly feels.

It may not be easy, but once you can actually gain her trust (over time) and get her to start chatting and smiling, you guys will be connected in a way you haven't before.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

is my girlfriend crazy aquarius zodiac sign

Aquarius can be REALLY detached. She needs a lot of space in her relationships, and over time it can be easy for her partner to become confused about what she actually wants in her relationship. Is that normal, always insisting on taking more time for herself? Always asking for space and yet telling you she wants to continue the relationship?

Sure, it may be confusing, but it ain't crazy, that's for sure. She may seem cold, but she has her reasons.

Aquarius is a HUGE introvert who values her own free time. She enjoys reading, watching movies and generally just chilling on her own. Being around other people drains her energy, and she just needs some space to unwind.

Believe it or not, that alone time and space is a way to make her HAPPIER. So give it to her.

But if you are feeling neglected in your relationship, maybe it's time you sit down with her to talk to her about what you need from her. 

Aren't these honest talks great? So much better than jumping to conclusions.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

is my girlfriend crazy pisces zodiac sign

Pisces can be over-emotional (according to her partners). Yep — she's likely to burst into tears for no good reason. And to a LOT of guys, that is a BIG no-no. Why? Because we HAVE to have a reason to cry, right? 

Her emotions are a puzzle, and when people see her crying, they quickly want to RUN, because they don’t know how to handle her feelings at all.

Her tears might confuse people, but she cries because she’s just emotional.

She feels things deeply, and instead of letting them all out with words, she ends up crying. It's an instant reaction that she honestly can't help.

And believe it or not, for her, it’s CLEANSING. Yep, you got that right. Sometimes crying is GOOD. It lets her release her pent up feelings, and she feels SO much better afterwards.

So give the girl a break, hand her some tissues and laugh it off later. Not everything has to go your way.
