Everybody has something about them that makes them special, it’s just that sometimes that specialness isn’t easily found or seen. When we meet someone that makes our heart beat a little faster and makes us feel as if they may be the one, it’s because we connect with the qualities that make them special and unique.

We want our partners to be different from other people. If they weren’t, over time we’d be bored by them. No one wants a partner who is 100 percent predictable and dull. No, we want someone who’ll surprise us and keep us fascinated.

Not every quality that makes someone interesting is a positive one. There are many quirks and traits that are negative, but without them, the person might just blend into the crowd. Hell, even your horoscope has a way of surprising you every now and then.

However, no one wants to be with someone whose negative qualities are too dangerous or disgusting. You could meet someone whose main claim to fame was never taking a shower or a bath and while you might think that was unusual, you probably wouldn't want to have a relationship with someone smelly and dirty.

Part of the fun of people and their unusual traits is discovering them. You may not know that you have a fascination for cosplay until you meet someone who loves to dress as Ignis Stupeo Scientia from Final Fantasy

Learning about what makes someone different from everyone else is part of the fun of getting to know someone. We want to know what makes them truly unique.

Each of the zodiac signs has their own bunch of characteristics and personality traits that make them different. Some of those qualities are things that we like and can relate to, while others make us want to have nothing to do with the person who possesses them.

But what makes you different? Here are the most unique zodiac signs and the traits they possess that are unlike any other.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

It might be surprising to learn that with all the many activities and challenges an Aries is constantly doing, that they're some of the most loyal people you'd ever meet. They have friends from when they were in school, they're friends with their exes, and they always have close ties to their family.

Although the Aries individual loves taking risks and trying new things, they'll always come through for their loved ones.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You'd rarely call a Taurus a blabbermouth. If someone tells a Taurus individual a secret, they're going to take it with them to the grave. Their trustworthiness must be why people feel comfortable in confiding their deepest, darkest secrets with them.

When you tell them something private, it's almost as if it's being sent to a locked vault somewhere, never to be revealed to outsiders.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

There's no situation that a Gemini can't make better. It's true — for the dullest formal event, the lackluster party or even an office meeting, somehow a Gemini can make it palatable. It must be their positive nature and their interest in people and life.

They're never bored, so they make those around them and the situations that they're in interesting and fun.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are intuitive and know what people need (especially their loved ones) before they even know they need it. If you're feeling sad but don't want to talk about it, they'll know to give you some space while at the same time letting you know that they care.

They can predict that things will happen when there's no sign of them happening. It's not that they're psychic exactly, they just know to trust their feelings about certain situations and people.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are very loyal but not carelessly. They won't give just anyone their trust, they need to earn it. But once they decide that someone is deserving of their loyalty, they'll never falter.

They'll be there whenever that person needs them and they'll always be by their side supporting them and standing up for them. Leos are definitely who you want in your corner, making them one of the most unique zodiac signs.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos don't ignore red flags. They're not the ones to be taken unaware when something big or unpleasant is happening. They know if something is off and they can fix it and they won't wait to do so.

Virgos take care of business and don't procrastinate when their gut tells them not to. They won't deny something is happening just to make themselves and others more comfortable; they know that delaying something important can lead to bigger problems down the line.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

No one is fairer than a Libra. They are diplomatic to a fault and hear everyone's side in an argument. You know when they voice their opinion that they've done their research and have thoughtfully come to a conclusion.

They're not going to argue just for the thrill of arguing. They make sure to treat everyone kindly and with compassion because they know that everyone has their own burdens.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are brave like warriors and never back down from standing up for themselves and others. They are the characters in the horror movie who go to investigate.

It may be that they have very little fear or that they don't let their fear prevent them from protecting themselves and others. Regardless of how impossible the situation may seem, they'll do their best to solve it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

For a zodiac sign who seems to take life as lightly as possible, Sagittarius has a very strong sense of right and wrong and lives by their own moral code. They may not be religious in the traditional sense but they are, at their core, a believer in a higher power and they do their best not to harm others.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are very observant and don't miss a trick. You think they're too buried in their work to notice but they're fully aware of everything going on around them. They don't speak out of turn and it may seem as if they're not listening but they are very present.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians have an intense need to do their part to make this world a better place. They're known for being humanitarians and giving their time and money to charitable causes, but there are things that they do anonymously because they're the right thing to do, not because they want to get any praise or adulation for it. Aquarians don't run on flattery.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are melt-your-heart kind. They're not only sensitive about themselves, they're caring about other people. They just want to be affectionate, gentle, and compassionate with the world. There are times when they'll definitely put their own wants aside for the desires of others
