Zodiac Signs That Suck At Relationships, Ranked From Most To Least

How terrible at love are you?

Not everyone is cut out for being in a relationship. Face it, by the time we’re actually good at it, we’re probably on our second marriage by then.

Relating — as in being in a serious romance — is not as natural to people as many would think. Some of us can have a mob of friends that we relate to well, while our love lives seem stiff and possibly not quite what we want them to be. Some seem to take to relationships rather well, but we always wonder or look at their horoscope and think, “Are they happy?”


Fear of intimacy is possibly one of the reasons many of us don’t venture into romance with the fullness of our heart; we’re simply afraid to be vulnerable, and so we withhold emotion. In so many cases, we bring our baggage into relationships and thrust our past issues upon our mates, which is so unfair.


But with enough experience in life and love, we learn that certain people will not and cannot move forward and that they will always withhold and spare themselves from the true intimacy that a relationship requires.

Astrologically, there is a definite good reason to believe certain folks are just a little worse than others when it comes to delivering the "love" goods. And I don’t mean sex, I mean love. Many can deliver sex — it’s the love stuff that most people have a problem giving up in large portions.

When we remember that giving love doesn’t actually deplete us, but rather, that we gain from giving, we win. Then the fear of intimacy becomes level ground. Still, we’re not all working on the same level at the same time.


With that in mind, let’s take a look at the zodiac signs that suck at relationships and how they rank on a scale from worst to best.

1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Great at giving love, but not very great at staying in relationships, Sagittarius’s love of freedom loses them partners all through their lives. That fierce desire for independence takes its toll, and sometimes the one who gets hurts the most is the Sagittarius, themselves.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Not cut out for monogamy, Aquarius often times gets themselves involved with one person, only to find out that it’s the last place they want to be. Their intentions are good, but they simply cannot hold up their end of the bargain and heartbreak is a part of that deal, making them one of the zodiac signs that suck at relationships.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is a person who pushes people to their limit and then wonders why they’re all alone and isolated, due to their own choices. They love love just as any other person does, but they are hard to deal with, these folks, and they do tend to criticize their partners so hard that they run away.

4. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

It’s just hard to be in a relationship where you have to take a backseat every damned day of your life so that your Leo partner can shine. Leos are great lovers and super-kind friends, but they are also impossible attention hounds and being in a relationship with a strong Leo would probably have you feeling quite... invisible.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Actually, these folks make for fine mates, but they are martyrs and they do love to throw tantrums. If you like a highly emotional partner, you’d find the dance of relating to a Pisces quite stimulating. The ol’ “make up sex” thing: Fight it out, then f*ck like crazy? That was created by a Pisces.
