Zodiac Signs Who Keep Their Relationships Private Vs. The Ones Who Tell The World Everything

How you handle the excitement of a new relationship depends on the type of person you are. If you're an person who loves the limelight, when you find someone you really enjoy spending time with, it can be easy to want to tell the world about them— immediately and often. But we’re not ALL like that, some zodiac signs are quiet by nature and they like to keep their love life personal and private. 

The difference is that some horoscopes like the thought of having something that’s all our own, and others feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves the more they share.

Once you know the relationship is going to last a while, you might be more inclined to share with family and close friends, but until then, this relationship is yours and yours alone. You could probably split the zodiac signs into two groups when it comes to talking about relationships — introverted horoscopes and extroverted zodiac signs.

Half of them are the kinds of private people to keep their new relationships under lock and key – sometimes forever or sometimes just until they know it’s more than just a casual thing. The other half can’t wait to scream it from the rooftops that they’re in a new relationship, whether the relationship actually lasts or not.

And because the zodiac signs are so divided, it can make it easier to see why each group has a hard time seeing the benefits of either telling or not telling everyone about the relationship. I’m sure a Scorpio would never in a million years want to tell complete strangers about her relationship just like Gemini could never imagine NOT telling everyone he’s friends with on social media about his new bae.

Is there a right and wrong way to talk about your relationship (new or otherwise)? Telling everyone everything about your relationship isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it can lead to some unpleasantness between you and your partner – and you and your partner and the rest of the world.

For starters, telling people about your relationship can open you up to a lot of criticism and unwanted opinions. It can also lead to a lot of people NOT in the relationship butting into your life.

If everyone has an unfiltered view of your relationship, how can you be sure that the things you say and do with your partner are actually you and not just some projected opinion from someone else? No one knows how your relationship functions better than you and your partner.

And honestly, no one needs to know how your relationship functions, so keeping the details about your personal life isn't only for introverted personality types.When people – even friends and family – try to give you their opinion, they’re only doing so because that’s how they would handle an argument or situation if they were in your position.

Sure, they might sound like they know what they’re talking about at the moment (and there’s nothing wrong with getting some advice), but it’s also important to actively be a part of your own relationship, instead of letting everyone except you control it.

That doesn’t mean you have to be totally tight-lipped about your relationship, either. In fact, it’s healthy to talk about your relationship instead of keeping it completely hidden. If you spend all of your time hiding any proof that your relationship exists, are you really doing you and your partner any favors? Definitely not.

But think of your relationship as an Instagram filter – one of the really good ones that accentuate all the good and leave out all the bad. Share the good things about your relationship to your family and friends. If you need advice about the bad things, give them an overview of what’s upsetting you – NOT all the gritty details.

You don’t have to pretend like your relationship is perfect, but you should still filter what you say in front of people outside of the relationship. And if people still try to force their opinion or criticism onto you and your relationship, just tell them that you appreciate their concern and interest in your love life but that you can handle it on your own.

You will most definitely get some of those nosy types trying to dig into your relationship – sometimes even the zodiac signs who love to share intimate details about their own relationships – but when you have a strong, healthy relationship, none of that will bring you down.

Trust me, there will always be introverted zodiac signs out there who keep their relationships private and those extroverted personality types who tell the world EVERYTHING, according to astrology.

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Ask Scorpio what she had to eat for lunch today and she’ll probably say something like, “That’s none of your business.” So, it stands to reason that she probably wouldn’t be as forthcoming about something that’s actually personal – like her relationship status. Scorpio highly values her privacy and isn’t one to share things with anyone. In fact, it’s rare she’ll openly talk to her friends and family about her relationship unless asked.

It takes Scorpio a long time to open up to someone enough for them to get to know her on an intimate basis. She tends to protect herself from hurt and rejection so much that it’s almost counterintuitive to finding the right person to date – there’s no risk at all. If she’s telling anyone about her relationship, she’s telling her diary, which she keeps under lock and key.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is very reserved about most things in her life – including her relationship. It’s not that she’ll go so far as to deny that she’s even in a relationship if you ask, but she’s certainly not someone to shout it from the rooftops, either. Virgo loves hard and wants to make sure that the relationship she’s in is one that’s going to last. So, chances are she’s going to skirt around the subject until she knows how it’s going to play out.

Virgo is also very shy, especially around people she’s not close with. In the right situation, she’ll tell you what you want to hear about her new bae. But if you're only working friends or a friend of a friend, she’s going to close up quick. Virgo hates being the center of attention, so there’s a possibility that even if she is comfortable around you, she’ll still get shy if confronted about her relationship.

3. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn might be fiercely in love with someone, but unless you’re here or that someone she’s in love with, you will never know. She might seem like a lady in the sheets, but she’s definitely a freak in the sheets – but she’s mature enough to control those two sides of her. Capricorn is one of the more modest zodiac signs and knows that her personal life is exactly that – personal.

Capricorn is also a quiet person in general, not just when it comes to things concerning her relationship. At work, in school, and even when she’s with her family and friends, Capricorn will be the fly on the wall – listening in to conversations and observing, rather than taking center stage. So, even if she is in an amazing relationship that she’s excited about, she’s most likely going to keep it to herself.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra is a very chilled out, calm person. Like everyone else, she gets excited, happy, or upset about things, but no matter what emotion she feels, she’s never been one to overexpress herself; she’s very good at controlling herself. Does that sound like someone who tells the world about her new relationship? No, absolutely not.

Libra is also all about keeping it tasteful – no matter what “it” is. She might not admit it to anyone else but herself, but she might also be keeping her relationship private because she doesn’t want to jinx it. All she really wants is to have a happy, no-mess relationship and, besides thinking it’s a little tactless to brag about your relationship to everyone, Libra wants to make sure nothing curses her good fortune.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is another one of those flies on the wall that much prefers to revel in her nice little relationship on her own rather than tell everyone she knows about all the dirty details. You know when things in your dreams always seem much better than reality and you always try to go right back to sleep when you wake up from a good dream? That’s how Pisces feels about her relationship.

When Pisces is in love, she practically walks on air. She’s more comfortable keeping her relationship private than telling people because this is her dream world and it makes her happy. She’s also a zodiac sign that can get shy when confronted about her personal life, so she feels that if she keeps her love life to herself, she won’t have to be bombarded with questions by nosy people.

6. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus doesn’t have to say anything for you to know that she’s in a new relationship. It’s not that she goes around telling everyone she can, but it’s certainly written on her face; rosy cheeks, a big smile, and a glow about her. That said, she knows that not everything needs to be shared, especially when it’s personal and private like her love life.

Taurus is reserved but not in an anti-social way. She knows when to keep things to herself and when to share with others, and she’s really good at keeping that balance. Of course, if you’re her family or best friends, she’ll probably tell you about her relationship right away, but she’ll also be mature about it; that means keeping the dirtiest details to herself.

7. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is one of those aloof zodiac signs that tend to keep everything from prying eyes and ears, sometimes even the most basic information. She doesn’t like when nosy people poke around in her personal life, so when she’s in a new relationship, she might try to keep things to herself at first. Of course, if she’s really into whoever she’s dating, she’s going to want to tell someone about them.

Aquarius will share details about her new bae and her love life as long as you are her close friend. If you’re her BFF, you get to know every little detail about her relationship, including how she secretly loves his morning breath. If you’re anyone else, she’ll clam up quick. She might even tell you to mind your own business if you try to butt in. She might be smitten and ready to gossip, but only with her squad where it’s safe.

8. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius can also be aloof when it comes to her love life, but that’s only because she doesn’t think much of her love life, to begin with. To her, it’s just another adventure to date someone – sometimes the relationship is short, sometimes it’s not really a relationship at all. And she doesn’t concern herself with remembering to tell everyone about her relationship because it might not even last anyway.

Sagittarius will share the details of her new relationship with her friends and family but only if she really, really like the person. If she wants people to know that it’s real, you’ll be able to see pictures of them living it up on her social media accounts and she might even drop her bae’s name in a conversation. Sagittarius makes a new relationship an easy thing, but it can just as easily disappear as it happens, too.

9. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo loves to be in a new relationship. To her, a new relationship is like a new pair of shoes – something she can show off to the world and get a few compliments in return. She knows that love is something to celebrate, so you won’t see her trying to keep her relationship to herself – why not flaunt in a little, right?!

That said, Leo knows that not everyone is as excited about her relationship as she is. Or, they are excited, but only for so long. When Leo shares her love life with people, she does so appropriately. That means no bragging about her relationship, talking about it incessantly, or keeping her new bae attached to her hip. Leo is very mature about what to share and what to keep to herself.

10. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is not as mature when she’s in a relationship because she’s just too darn excited to keep anything to herself. When she meets someone new, part of her is always on high alert that this person could be The One. And if they’re the one then she better start introducing her family and friends to her new partner as soon as possible!

Whether she’s with her partner or not, Cancer is always talking about them. She might not tell the world necessarily, but her bae is a constant fixture in any conversation she has. Her family and friends aren’t the only ones who have to hear about it either. Even if it’s just in passing, Cancer is likely to bring up her relationship in some way when having a conversation with coworkers, friends of friends, and even strangers.

11. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The only way to describe Aries when it comes to her love life is to compare her to Buddy from the movie Elf – more specifically, the scene when he bursts into an office full of strangers and says, “I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!” When I say she will tell everyone everything about her relationship, I mean it.

Aries loves to be in love and she really does want to share it with everyone. It doesn’t matter if she’s been dating the person for a few weeks or a few months, she wants to share just how happy she is. Aries is another one of those zodiac signs that thinks that every partner has the potential of becoming The One, so she wants to make sure that every minute spent with her bae is full of love – and that everyone knows about it.

12. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini tells EVERYONE about her relationship – and yes, I mean literally everyone. She would scream it from the rooftops if she could. And actually, she probably has at some point in her life. She just loves letting people know she’s seeing someone because it’s just so darn exciting to her – even if the relationship doesn’t last very long.

Of course, when I say Gemini tells everyone everything about her relationship, I don’t mean it in a nice way. In fact, she can be pretty incessant about it. She’s the zodiac sign who will share every detail about her relationship all over social media. Honestly, it can get so bad that you either have to unfriend her for a while or just accept that you’re a part of her relationship now, too. What can she say? Gemini loves to share.
