Zodiac, Heartbreak

You sure do know how to pick 'em.

Whether we blame the downward spiral of society or the Dating Apocalypse, we're living in a time of f*ckboys and bad men. These bad men are entitled assh*les who have zero respect for women and have no qualms about stringing women along, having sex with them, then sucking them dry of everything — emotions, money, pride, you name it. 

But sadly, we have all fallen victim to one at one point or another, whether of our own volition or listening to every word our horoscope has to say. And thanks to our zodiac sign, we always seem to fall for the exact same type of bad guy.

Here's the kind of bad man each zodiac sign is attracted to and just can't stop falling for.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19): The Bad Liar

Aries, get it together! While you absolutely refuse to take sh*t from anyone, there’s something about the lying guy that you just can’t see through — it’s like you’re blinded by sex! Every time he opens his mouth, he tells you a lie, and every time he tells a damn lie you believe it.

In fact, he just told you this morning the sky is green and you believed him. I mean, come on! That’s not even a good lie. Also, in case you forgot, you have eyes of your own to see that the sky isn’t green.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): The Money Grubber

Not only is your bad guy sleeping with you and three other women in your building, but he’s also always hitting you up for cash with some stupid sob story. And you know what? You buy the sob story every effing time.

Listen, I know you’re stubborn, Taurus, so you’re not likely to believe this, but the money he needed to buy a suit for his grandfather’s funeral wasn’t for a funeral at all. In fact, his grandfather is still very much alive and that suit he bought looked great on him when he was out with one of the many other women he’s currently having sex with.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): The Self-Doubting Artist

As an artist yourself, Gemini, you can’t help but respect a man who puts it all on the line for his art. But because we’re talking about bad men here, you should know that this “artist” of yours is an emotional and creative vampire who isn’t just going to suck the life from you because he constantly needs reassurance that his art is great, but he’s also very likely to steal your ideas, too.

Before you know it, that painting you did a couple weeks ago is up in a local coffee shop, with his name on it.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22): The Smooth Talker

Although all horrible men are smooth talkers to a degree — in fact, it’s the only place where they truly excel — Cancer is drawn to a brand of smooth talkers that make other smooth talkers look like chumps.

These guys have such a way with words that they can slither their way right into the hearts and minds of your friends and family so deeply, that when you finally come to your senses, realizing he’s a jerk, your friends and family won’t agree, because he pulled the wool over their eyes, too.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): The Straight-Up Assh*le

The problem with you, Leo, is that you’re so arrogant that you have a hard time recognizing arrogance in others.

What this means is that the guy you always go for is the one who is the very definition of assh*le, but you just can’t see it — at least not until you no longer have any friends, have lost your job, and you have a couple STDs, because Sir Assh*le swooped right on in and ruined everything before you even knew what hit you.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): The Actor

As somewhat shy and reserved, Virgo, you can’t help but find yourself intrigued by someone who likes to be the center of attention. But the problem with a guy who’s also an actor is he’s always acting, like always; like you never really get to see what kind of man he really is, because he’s a different version of himself from one minute to the next.

Not to mention, he really loves to make jokes at your expense because he knows you’re too shy to tell him to shut the hell up.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): The Pretty Boy

Libra, you’d be so much further in life if you could just, for one second, stop putting looks above all else! But since you can’t, you always find yourself with the guy who’s so painfully good-looking that even when you catch him in a lie, even when he makes you feel like crap, and even though he slept with your roommate, you forgive him.

Why? Because your weakness for dimples and wavy hair will be the death of you, woman!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): The Manipulator

Because you hate lying and dishonesty, the guy that always falls in your lap is the one who can manipulate you and every situation that includes you. You may consider yourself as having a gift to see right through bullsh*t, but when it comes to a guy of such manipulative skills, you’re blind AF, Scorpio.

In fact, he’s so good at manipulation that he could manipulate you out of a million bucks easily — that is, if you have a million bucks.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21): The MIA Jerk

As someone who knows how important it is to be free and do things on your own terms, you have your guy on a very, very long leash. So long, in fact, that he can go totally MIA for months, without a single word, but when he shows up again, you put him back up on that pedestal and shower him with sex, gifts, compliments, and all the other things he doesn’t deserve.

Open your eyes, Sag! He’s not a free spirit; he’s a no good f*ckboy.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19): The Thieving Pessimist

Because, at your core, you have some pessimism ways about you, Capricorn, you might love the idea of misery loving company. But wait! Misery actually doesn’t love company. So while your guy is sitting around being somber while you bust your ass, as every responsible Capricorn does, you don’t really get to see exactly what’s going on: he’s playing you and using you as a meal ticket, to boot.

He’s not the moody, pessimistic artist you think he is; he’s a f*ckboy whose only ambition is getting from you sex and whatever he can reap from your hard work... like food and gifts.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): The Couch Surfer

It’s your free spirit, Aquarius, that gets you sucked into the type of guy who has no problem taking advantage of the kindness of others.

However, it should be known that while he’s “finding” himself on his sister’s couch when he’s not at your place, eating your food and hogging your bed, he’s sleeping with every other woman who comes his way, giving the same the spiel to them as he gave to you about how he’s a rebel, a dreamer, and conformity isn’t for him. Also, that girl he’s staying with isn’t even really his sister, FYI.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20): The Wannabe Musician

Oh, there’s nothing sadder than a wannabe musician whose chance of making it are zero to none, but yet, here he is and here you are, telling him he’s the best.

However, it should be known, he’s not just using you for sex, but he’s also using you for his ego. Pisces, you’re far too enamored by him to see that he has about as much talent as a dead fish. Hell, the dead fish probably has more talent.
