zodiac signs who won't commit

Not everyone is cut out to be relationship material. In fact, some people don’t just suck at relationships and commitment, but truly fear it, as in have a legit phobia of them.

Whether it’s because of a bad relationship that ruined them for other relationships, something about how they were raised, or just an inherent fear of settling down with one person for the long haul, commitmentphobes exist.

Since this is a fact and those who are all for commitment should stay the hell away from commitmentphobes, here are the zodiac signs who won't commit and are the most phobic of commitment, to the least phobic, but still totally phobic in their own way. These zodiac signs will run like hell the second they hear the “C” word, and that's something any horoscope could predict.

1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius was born to fly, both literally and metaphorically. They have zero desire in doing what others do and want to live a life void of responsibilities, obligations, and, of course, commitment.

While some people look at commitment as a cozy blanket under which they want to cuddle with a life-long partner, Sagittarius sees it as a prison, making them the absolute, most commitmentphobic sign in the zodiac.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Similar to Sagittarius, Aquarius loves their freedom. While they’re not going to rip their heart out with their bare hands if pushed into commitment as Sagittarius would, Aquarius would still gouge their eyes out if presented with such a situation.

Aquarius prefers not to live in the real world and because of that their ideal relationships are ones that are open, polyamorous, or some other new and exciting thing they invented. They just can’t do the commitment thing, especially to just one person. No way, no how.

3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Coming in as the third biggest commitmentphobe of these top five commitmentphobes is Scorpio. Sure, Scorpio isn't going to go so far as to inflict bodily harm on themselves to get out of a commitment, but they sure as hell won’t be signing up for it ever.

Scorpio’s reputation proceeds them so much that they’re forever intriguing to almost everyone they meet. If you can have all the slices of all the different pies out there in the world, would you settle on one slice of the same pie forever? Probably not.

4. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

While the other three signs on this list are phobic of commitment because of their beliefs and/or opportunities, Aries is a commitmentphobe by default. What this means is that their inability to commit to one person has more to do with their impatience, crankiness, impulsiveness, and need to have everything their way.

It’s hard to find yourself in a committed relationship when you can’t find someone who’s willing to meet all your expectations — and Aries has A LOT of expectations.

5. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

Again, like Aries, Libra is a commitmentphobe by default. It’s the combination of being indecisive and having a deep disdain for conformity that has Libra fearing commitment. Because why be like everyone else when you can be unlike everyone else?

Also, what if something better is out there? Sure, these aren’t exactly the most romantic thoughts, but it’s these thoughts keep Libra from commitment — far, far away from commitment.
