They have no problem dumping you for their new relationship.

Are you able to be both a good friend and a good partner? Or once you fall in love, is your only focus your partner? For the flaky zodiac signs, losing a friend is usually the first thing to happen when they start a relationship. And no matter what their horoscope advises against, they fall into the same pattern.

Ditching your friends for a new boyfriend is so high school. You’d think that once you’re an adult, you’d realize how important it is to be a good friend even when you’re in the beginning stages of a new relationship. But it seems as if some people are unable to do both, at least according to astrology.

It’s understandable that when you start a new romantic relationship you would be somewhat consumed by your feelings and that new person. You might not have time for your friends, and initially, that’s okay. It’s when it’s been months.

Friendships deserve just as much care and respect as a new relationship does. If you’re the friend that’s being ditched, it can hurt a lot. You begin to have doubts that your friendship meant anything to your suddenly unavailable friend. No one likes to be treated as an afterthought.

If you ignore your friends, they may not be there when you realize that you need them. It might be that the relationship is so new that if they don’t put all their focus and energy on it, it will disappear. But if someone has to work that hard on keeping their relationship, it may not be worth keeping.

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

When a Scorpio is in love, they're all the way in. They can get extremely obsessed to the point where their partner is the only person they focus their attention and energy on. The things that make Scorpio remarkable is what gives them tunnel vision when it comes to their romantic love interest.

You may as well count on not seeing or hearing from them much if they're in the infatuation stage. Don't take it personally — they love you and they'll be back when they start to feel more comfortable in their relationship.

The problem is when Scorpio's feelings aren't returned which can cause them to be jealous, resentful, and full of rage; they'll take those negative feelings and focus on the person who did them wrong. When a Scorpio is hellbent on revenge, they won't have any time for their friends or family either.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus tend to indulge themselves, so if they're in love, they're going to be 100 percent focused on that love. They're going to want to enjoy every minute of the intoxication. Every new detail about their new partner is fascinating to them, every touch gives them extreme pleasure, and being with them is not just their priority, it's their everything.

It may have taken Taurus a lot of time and energy to get to this place, so they don't take being in love lightly. Taurus by nature can be extremely possessive of their things and their loves, which doesn't give them a lot of room for other people. Their friends need to know that they're still in Taurus' heart, it's just that right now, they are focused on something else.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

It would cause Pisces pain if someone told them they were ignoring their friends for a new love. However, that's exactly what Pisces tends to do. They're so into being in love that they forget everyone that was a part of their life before they met their person.

Between the excitement of the new love, spending time with them, and then being inspired by them, it doesn't leave much time for hanging out with their friends. It's not that Pisces is being selfish, they're only giving everything they have to their new relationship.

4. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers tend to take love rather seriously and they can very possessive and clingy with a new love. When they're at the beginning of a new relationship, they tend to focus on their partner and themselves. They want to be with their new partner all the time, and if that means spending more time in bed than outside it, so what?

It's not like they're purposely ditching their friends, they simply seem to forget about everything but love. If something goes wrong or the relationship doesn't work out, they're going to need their friends' support to help them get through all the negative feels.

If you're a friend of a Cancer and they seem as if your friendship isn't important to them, give them a pass. They're so caught up in being love that they've forgotten about life outside that relationship.
