Why It's A Bad Idea To Fall In Love With Him, Based On His Zodiac Sign

It’s cute at first, but you're going to get sick of it sooner than you think.

When you notice someone — like, really notice them — for the first time, what is it about them that grabs your attention? Sometimes it’s obvious.

Maybe they’re super-attractive, or they obviously have money (hey, that’s important), or their scent reminds you of your senior-year crush. Or maybe you're really keen on astrology and can determine someone's zodiac sign minutes after meeting them. You subsequently check their horoscope for an in-depth look at their day-to-day choices.


But it’s the little things that can really make falling in love with someone hit you hard. Little traits and quirks that are so subtle or simple that you wonder why you never saw it before.

A friend smiles at you from just the right angle, and suddenly you’re wondering if you could be more than friends. Or you realize that they have the best, most endearing laugh you’ve ever heard. Then again, sometimes you just can’t pinpoint it — one day he was just this guy you know, and the next day you’ve got stars in your eyes and you’re flipping wistfully through bridal magazines, wondering if he’s feeling the same way.


How disappointing it is, then, when you’re a few months into a new relationship and one day realize that the very thing that you found so great about your beloved at first is now driving you up the wall? 

That adorable laugh now reminds you of a donkey in distress. The way he shoves his food around on the plate is really kind of gross. And if you have to hear one more heartfelt declaration of love when you’re trying to watch TV, you’re just going to scream.

Your daily horoscope is a good warning system. It not only lets you know when you’re particularly susceptible to falling in love (or at least major infatuation), but whether or not that could be a very bad idea.


Studying his Sun sign traits — positive and negative — will also help you decide if you really want to put up with him for the rest of your life.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

If you’re looking for a knight in shining armor, Aries sure seems like the guy for you. He acts like a born champion: he’s loud, spontaneous, and quick to jump to your defense at the merest hint of a threat. He’ll be the one climbing your garden wall to serenade you at 2 o'clock in the morning.


Yeah, that gets old after awhile, especially when you figure out that he doesn’t have an “off” button. That protective attitude starts to look like misplaced aggression, and who wants to be woken up every night by anthem rock?

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is a great catch if you’re hoping to live the good life. He knows how to invest and he doesn’t mind showing off his wealth (or talking about how much he’s going to have some day). Just don’t let yourself be blinded by all that shiny stuff.

Taurus is a devoted partner, but sometimes he gets a little confused — always territorial and possessive, he sometimes needs to be reminded that love does not mean ownership.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is probably the most charming guy you’ve ever met, and it feels great to be the center of his attention! You share so many of the same interests, and he always knows what to say to make you feel special.

Can he even be real? Sure, he’s real. But he’s just as real to the ten other people who are also in love with him. Gemini can make anyone feel special.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)



Cancer is so shy, it’s adorable. When you finally get a declaration of love out of him, you feel like throwing confetti. But once he’s attached, he won’t let go... even when you need some space for yourself.

He’s either talking about his emotions constantly, or not at all. Make sure you can both agree on clear boundaries when it comes to how much energy you’re going to be able to give him, and how much you’re going to need him to give.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is probably one of the most consistently attractive signs of the Zodiac. He takes pride in his appearance, and he just seems so confident and positive that you wonder if he’s actually an undercover celebrity.


That’s the problem: Leo thinks he’s a celebrity, too. Everyone around him are his co-stars and sidekicks. He’s not quite as confident as he seems, either — he needs you to remind him how great he is, even on the days that he’s not being so great.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

If you’re the type who’s always trying to “rescue” people, or at least cheer them up, you won’t be able to resist Virgo’s cynical charms. He never seems truly happy. Maybe he just needs someone like you to bring some light to his life and make him see the positive side of things...

...and maybe he does need that, but girl, you’re not going to change him. Spotting trouble and focusing on problems is part of Virgo’s basic nature. Fix one problem, and he’ll find three more to complain about.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra is the life of the party, and no wonder — he’s so nice to everyone! What could be better than spending your life with someone so upbeat and congenial?

Well, one of the reasons that Libra is so easy to get along with is because he can’t make a decision or take sides. He’s so busy trying to make sure that everyone else is happy and calm that he doesn’t really know what he wants or needs. Libra is a good partner, but you’ll often find yourself wishing that he would just take control for once.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

It’s impossible to avoid falling for a Scorpio. They’re surrounded by an aura of fascination and mystery. It’s like they stepped right off the cover of a dark fantasy romance novel.  

Maybe you can be the one to break through their emotional armor and you two can enjoy a lifetime of romantic passion and devotion. More likely, you’ll just get tired of the games. Secrets and uncertainty only go so far, and the drama — which, truth be told, isn’t all Scorpio’s fault — is exhausting.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Is there anything that Sagittarius won’t joke about? This is the most optimistic sign of the Zodiac, and they can find the fun in just about any situation. And if they can’t find something fun about it, they’ll just go find a different situation.

Sagittarius’ spontaneity and positivity is refreshing, but you’ll get tired of trying to keep them interested in one thing for too long.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Had enough of Sagittarius’ flitting all over the place? Capricorn is grounded, reliable, and predictable. He’s on his way to a great career and a respectable reputation. Parents love him. Now this is a guy who knows how to be serious and get things done.

Except that he’s so busy being serious and getting things done that he often doesn’t have time to just relax and have fun with you. Capricorn is the grown-up of the Zodiac, and he has high standards for everyone around him, too. Life with Capricorn is comfortable, but some days you’ll wish that Sagittarius would come back and whisk you away.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Is it his passion for saving the world? His brilliant mind? Or just that crazy rebellious look in his eye that makes you think he’s from another planet?

Aquarius is an enigma. Eccentric loner geniuses are hard to resist, but never forget that, for him, it’s not just an act. He’s not secretly reaching out, hoping for an emotional connection. If you’re not already on his level, he’s not going to do much to help you up.

He doesn’t get attached easily, and he doesn’t really think that’s a problem. Why should it be?

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)



You wanted a guy who’s in touch with his emotions? Here you go. Your Pisces man isn’t afraid to express what’s in his heart, and he wants to know what’s in yours, too.

Eventually, though, you’ll have to put “feelings” aside and deal with the cold, cruel, rational world of adult responsibilities. Some Pisceans, though, can’t seem to make it that far. You love him for his imagination and open heart, but can he pay the bills with that?
