what each male zodiac sign hates about relationships

We all have that one (or more) thing that we absolutely can’t stand in a relationship. It’s as if we can tolerate everything else but that. You may have no tolerance for cheaters or maybe it’s having a partner who continues to be upbeat and positive, even while the world is crashing down around them.

When your partner demonstrates that thing you hate the most, you have to decide what action you are going to have to take. Do you tell them simply to stop or that your head will explode? Do you check their horoscope for answers? Do you pray that they’ll stop doing it on their own or do you break up with them knowing that they’ll never stop nor will they understand why it’s such a deal breaker for you?

Sometimes these things that we can’t stand are actually not about our partners but about ourselves. The thing that bugs you most about someone else may be something that you yourself do and that you just haven’t dealt with.

There are things that over time we can get used to and even like. I never thought I would enjoy going to Hawaii but after my boyfriend won a trip there, I love it. Now, I wouldn't have broken up with him simply because he won a free trip but if he had really forced me to go against my will, I might have.

Relationships are complicated and messy. We may wonder if we will ever fully understand our partner’s way of thinking or what it is that makes them do what they do. Astrology can help guide us in understanding and figuring out our loved ones.

The stars know why we do what we do and can clue us in on what our partner is thinking and why our partner may not even know themselves. Here’s what each male zodiac sign hates about relationships the most.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He hates feeling as if he's stuck in a rut. Aries isn't big on routine — they don't like feeling as if they have to do the same things over and over again. He understands responsibilities and doing what's expected of him but he can't do the same things day in and day out; he has to be able to break up the monotony.

If he can't take a day off and go hiking, he's going to play some practical jokes at the office, or do something impulsive that he may regret later — anything to end the boredom.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

He can't stand it when it doesn't get his way all the time. Everyone knows that Taurus can be stubborn but it goes beyond that. They can be big babies if they feel denied. Taurus isn't great with "no."

Since they can't see things from anyone else's perspective, they're unable to reach a compromise on almost anything. If something doesn't fit in with his way of thinking, he gets very upset and can leave a good relationship over his refusal to bend a little.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

He hates it when his partner refuses to talk to him. Sometimes his partner can get mad or be in a position where they're so upset that they can't find the right words to express their feelings, so they just stay quiet.

When someone close to Gemini won't speak to him, it really gets under his skin and he's at a loss on what to do. If you can't communicate with Gemini, he'll have some serious doubts about your relationship.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He hates it when his partner acts like they don't care. Indifference is Cancer's kryptonite and makes him feel powerless and clueless about what to do. He can't deal with someone who is detached and unfeeling; it completely short-circuits his wiring. He'd much prefer a big show of emotion, even if it's anger or sadness than nothingness.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

He hates it when his partner is cold and withholding. A Leo man needs attention and positive-reinforcement and when his partner is aloof and without warmth, he just can't stand it.

If his partner's attitude is so cold that it brings down the temperature of the room, that's a big problem for Leo. A Leo needs to feel warm and as if he's the sun, and a partner who is cold, calculating, and unresponsive to his charms isn't going to do it for him.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He hates having a partner who is too demonstrative when they're out in public. If his partner is constantly putting on public displays of affection, Virgo will start to shut down.

You can be affectionate but be subtle; don't stick your tongue down his throat at his parent's dinner party. Discretion is the name of the game for Virgo, even if you're in a long-term relationship.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

He hates conflict and fighting, especially with an audience. Libra can't stand it when his partner chooses the middle of dinner at a fancy restaurant to start a fight. They don't like conflict on a good day and they certainly don't like feeling as if they're being cornered. He doesn't like feeling like he's being attacked and it's emasculating when his partner is screaming at him and he does nothing.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

He hates having to apologize when he doesn't mean it. Scorpios don't like to lie but there are some times when you've got to apologize to keep the peace. He's not sure that maintaining the status quo is worth the cost of doing something he feels is morally wrong to do.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

He hates it when he has to watch what he says. Sagittarius can sometimes have verbal diarrhea and will just say whatever comes into their head. However, that isn't always okay in a relationship. Sometimes you need to keep your mouth shut and hold back that joke or philosophy. He wants to be able to say whatever he needs to say, whenever he needs to say it.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

He hates it when his boundaries aren't respected. If he has his books a certain way, and you borrow one and never return it or put it somewhere other than where you found it, that won't fly with him. He'll feel as if you don't care enough to be thoughtful of him and his things.

Capricorns need respect in all avenues of their life and if they feel disrespected in any way, they practically self-destruct.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

He hates it when his partner is always having emotional outbursts. Aquarians aren't great with big displays of emotion; in fact, they try to avoid them whenever possible.

Emotions make them uncomfortable, so if their partner is constantly having meltdowns and crying jags, Aquarius is going to feel ill at ease all the time. If you don't have a certain level of comfort in your relationship, you probably will want to find a new one.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces hates to be over-scheduled. They need time to dream and create, so if their partner always has them on the go and going places, Pisces isn't going to be happy. 

They need their downtime and their time to decompress; if their partner isn't allowing them that time, they'll probably stew about it for a while and then when they finally confront them, it will be way over the top.
