Born between the dates of May 21st to June 20th, Gemini is often regarded as being the zodiac sign with a “split” personality. To many, it is believed that the Gemini personality is fun and outgoing, yet, like every sign, the Gemini negative traits are very real.

There is some truth to these Gemini traits and characteristics. Even though Gemini is ruled by Mercury and prone to talking about things, there is also a mysterious side to them.

But the Gemini zodiac sign has a very go-with-the-flow personality, and they always searching for the next adventure. An air sign, this zodiac sign is able to adapt to any situation and succeed.

While they are fast communicators and have some of the most intelligent viewpoints, this can at times be outweighed by the Gemini dark side.

Here are the 5 Gemini negative traits that can be off-putting to others.

1. Sarcastic

Geminis are the pros of verbal irony and sarcasm. Even in the most serious of situations, their wit and dry humor will be the first response from this sign.

The sarcasm can be annoying, especially if you’re seeking genuine advice from them. They may offer it, but not after first speaking in a way that makes you feel irritated or annoyed.

2. Flighty

Geminis, like other air signs, hate to be tied down. As a result, they rarely seek commitment and would rather be single or alone to explore what life has to offer.

Even in committed friendships and relationships, Geminis will find themselves searching for different friends or even different partners, and won’t hesitate to leave if they find something they believe to be better than what they have.

3. Impulsive 

With their carefree personality comes a penchant for impulsivity. They are quick to jump into situations without thinking of the consequences and making additional plans in the event things don’t work out. This is why Gemini can be considered dangerous.

Often, Geminis find themselves in trouble as a result and will become moody if they can’t figure a way out of the situation. Ironically, this will also cause them to attempt to solve the problem in an impulsive way as well.

4. Materialistic

Like the other air signs, Geminis are attracted to beauty, intelligence, and charm. However, this doesn’t always transfer to inner beauty.

Geminis assess what is beautiful or charming on the surface and pursue those things in their quest for freedom. This can often lead to casual hook-ups and acquaintances, which is often their preference.

5. Anxious 

Many Geminis have issues with anxiety. Due to their impulsive nature, they can find themselves in stressful situations that are difficult to handle and cause them to feel anxious. When this happens, they either shut down or lash out at those around them.

What The Bad Side Of A Gemini Woman Looks Like

Gemini's negative traits show up differently in each gender. A Gemini woman's "dark side" comes out most when she loses control of her emotions.

Gemini ladies tend to keep all their feelings inside, but their emotions of the moment definitely determine how they live their lives and interact with others. A Gemini woman's emotions typically manifest as anxiety or depression.

If you want a woman you can wife up, be wary of Gemini. She's easily bored and restless, which often translates into major commitment issues.

A Gemini woman is not the best friendship or love match for the sensitive and faint of heart (Pisces, you are the worst match for Gemini). These ladies are often brutally honest, cold, and sarcastic.

What The Dark Side Of A Gemini Man Looks Like

Gemini men are hard eggs to crack and will keep you on your toes. Often impatient and indecisive, men are the Geminis that have bad tempers. Unlike a Gemini woman, a Gemini man's difficult emotions are expressed in angry outbursts.

Gemini men enjoy independence, so much so that if they feel tied down in a relationship, they'll run for the hills. So if you're feeling possessive, he'll start losing interest.

Gemini love can also be inconsistent in relationships. One day he will be romancing you in all your favorite love languages, and the next he might seem indifferent towards you.

Even though they have some negative personality traits, Gemini isn't a negative sign overall.

Their positive attributes definitely outweigh the negatives. If you’re a Gemini, you can avoid this side of yourself by making plans before your next spontaneous adventure, and remembering that everything on the surface isn’t golden.

Geminis may have their negative traits, but like all astrological signs, they are also really good people.
