It's his secret deal-breaker.

each zodiac sign's biggest turn-off weheartit

If you’ve ever been ghosted, then you know how confusing it can be to not have any clue why he suddenly lost interest. You wonder if it was something specific that you did or just something about you.

Men aren’t always forthcoming in their likes and dislikes, and it’s easy to do something that’s a turn-off and not even know you're doing it. We all want to know what went wrong and may consult our horoscope for answers, but we can always look to astrology for help.


Each zodiac sign has their own set of turn-offs. What is completely innocuous for one sign may be the worst for another. There are behaviors that we exhibit every day that are so ingrained in us, we don’t even think about them or how they may be affecting other people.

Dating and relationships can be tricky and it’s good to have as much information as possible going into it, so knowing your partner’s turn-offs can be invaluable. So, here's each zodiac sign's biggest turn-off.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are impulsive, adventurous, and they don't do well with people who try their patience (mainly because they have so little).

You may be turning your Aries off if you're too low-energy, take too long to make a decision, or are someone who tries to manipulate them into changing. If they sense that you're trying to hold them back in anyway, they'll be turned off.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taureans like things to be easy and as uncomplicated as possible, so if you're someone who thrives on drama and complications, you're probably not for them.

A Taurus man will be turned off if someone is demanding and dominating. If you try to make them do something or be something they don't want to do, they're going to give you some major pushback and will probably leave you.
