It may be a thing associated with men, but many people, regardless of gender, enjoy the thrill of the chase. They want a challenge and once they’ve managed to hook the person they have their eye on, they find themselves less interested.

For the zodiac signs who love the chase, it's like a drug or aphrodisiac. They get excited when they use their wiles to attract someone, and that goes far beyond just a horoscope. Many things influence our personalities including our family, the environment, our experiences along the way, and even astrology.

We may be told when we’re growing up that the endgame is always to find a mate and settle down. You date and have some hook-ups, but when you find the one, you lock them down. But not everyone enjoys monogamy, and for some people being with the same person their entire life is not their goal.

Sometimes the chase is fun for everyone — the one who is doing the chasing and the "chasee" — but other times, people get hurt. No one enjoys feeling used and tossed aside, especially after falling for the person chasing them.

If you enjoy the thrill of the chase to the extent that it prevents you from forming healthy relationships, it’s damaging and you need to get some help. And here are 5 zodiac signs who love the thrill of the chase the most.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

One of the reasons that Aries love the chase so much is that it feels like a challenge and a type of competition. If Aries can outmaneuver their conquest, they win. Love is a game to them. They like to one-up everybody and show that they are always number one; what they want, they usually get.

In addition to the Aries' competitiveness, they like the feeling of having to think on their feet. Anything that keeps things fresh is good for Aries.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis tend to have a roving eye — they like to date multiple people at one time. They like stimulating conversation and people who intrigue them. Geminis have some commitment issues, so it's easier if they just stay in the attraction stage. That way, they won't be forced to commit to one person.

When you're always involved in the chase, you never have to come face to face with your fear of commitment. When one is heavily involved in the strategic side of dating, they're constantly in a state of excitement.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are sometimes like the comedian who focuses on the one person who isn't laughing. If they can attract someone too easily, it seems to mean less to them. Leos tend to want to be single but have someone devoted to them.

They like having someone new around to impress and don't always want to be tied down to one person. Sometimes Leos are superficial and want to have the hottest person in the room. They like to have their options open in order to pursue them.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians love people — they love to meet new people, be around people, and they thrive knowing that others find them attractive, smart, and funny. They also love a good challenge and secretly feel like there isn't anyone they can't get. They are good at playing games, especially with potential new love interests.

They don't want someone who is too into them too fast because it isn't any fun. Sagittarius are great at dating and making a good first impression, but their real challenge comes from being able to stick around when relationships are out of the honeymoon phase and the real work begins.

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

A Libra may be in a relationship but that won't stop them from being flirty. They love to charm and show off how amazing they are. Libras thrive on attention and they don't always get enough of it when their relationship has settled.

They need something to get excited about and flirting with someone, even if they have no intention of pursuing a relationship with them, gives Libra life. Getting someone interested in them, especially if that person ignored them in the past, adds to their self-esteem.
