Why Your Zodiac Sign Is Single By Choice
Love, Zodiac

We all have our reasons for wanting time to ourselves.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You tend to be impatient with your relationships and that’s why you think you’re better off alone. You like to do things spontaneously, go to a certain place with no plans at all, and live life without rules. You respect people who have a hard time understanding your free-spirited lifestyle, but you’re not the type who’s going to change for them.

You’d rather wait for someone who’s going to love you for who you are than pretend to be someone you are not.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Your ambitions are more important than having a romantic companion. There are still plenty of things that you want to achieve in life before settling down.

There are still traits and characteristics of yours that need to be improved upon before you put yourself out there in the dating world. You know that there is a perfect time to fall in love, and right now, you just don’t see yourself sharing your heart with someone else.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

A few people took your love for granted before and now, you find it difficult to open yourself completely and trust another person again. You’re building your walls up to protect yourself from any emotional harm and damage that someone can bring in your life.

You just want to stay single and heal and pick up the broken pieces of you. You’re working on making yourself feel whole again so that hopefully, you’ll be ready to take a risk in love once more.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Your sensitive heart gets hurt so easily and you’re tired of welcoming people in your life who only want to take advantage of your vulnerability. At some point, you’ve convinced yourself that you’ll never meet the right one for you because of all the heartaches that you experienced.

You’re slowly accepting that maybe you’re going to grow old alone and won’t feel what it’s like to have someone who deeply cares for you. But a tiny part of you still hopes that one day, you will also get the love that you deserve.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Based on your observances of modern dating, you’ve decided that you’re emotionally safer when you’re not involved in any sort of relationship with anyone. You’re at peace knowing that nobody can hurt you. Nobody can drag you into the games they’re playing in love. And nobody can bring pain in your heart. You are smart enough to wait for someone who can truly be ready to commit with you wholeheartedly.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

People know that you barely say no to them and sometimes they use your kindness to their advantage. They run to you for help but when you’re the one who needs it, they suddenly become busy. They can’t make time for you and they give a lot of excuses about why they can’t meet you and offer you some comfort.

Along the way, you’ve learned to prioritize yourself, to take good care of yourself, and to love yourself first before others. You’ve learned that one of the most important relationships that you should have in this world is with your own heart.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

It’s difficult for you to trust people. No matter how hard you try to give someone your heart, you end up taking it back from them. Words aren’t enough for you to believe in peoples’ intentions. You always need a proof or some sort of sign that they’re not going to betray you, emotionally hurt you, and leave you all of a sudden.

You want someone to work really hard to earn your trust. You can’t share all the parts of yourself to a person unless you’re really sure that he or she is the one you’re going to marry one day.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Your goal is to see every corner of the world before seeking a permanent home in someone else. You want to immerse yourself in environments that are completely different from where you grew up. You want to learn more about life from other people. You want to learn more about yourself by going to places that make you feel uncomfortable.

To you, there’s still so much to do on earth and you want to take your time exploring and experiencing wonderful adventures before settling down.
