They say when you know, you know. But come on, is it really that simple?

How are you supposed to know if he's 'The One'? I know that I, for one, have had a “good feeling” about more than my share of guys who turned out to be, shall we say, not the one.

Meanwhile, this all begs an important question: Is there even any such thing as “The One?”

Even if you’re a committed monogamist, that doesn’t mean you’ve spent your whole life just waiting for that one perfect person to come riding in on a white horse. We all fall in and out of love all the time, and just because something didn’t work out doesn’t necessarily mean they weren’t your soulmate. It just means they’re not the one anymore.


The point is, life is full of chances to fall in love, out of love, and back in love all over again. We can all fall in love in many different ways with many different people at many different times throughout our lives, so there’s no need to stress about finding “The One.” The world is full of ones and you have to trust your gut when it comes to these things.

But, as many of us have learned at some point or another, sometimes your heart will steer you wrong — luckily, we can look to astrology to get us back onto the right track.

As your heart isn’t always the best judge of character (love is blind, and when you’re feeling all love-struck, your heart thinks everyone is the one), but it's hard to argue with personality traits.

Find out the tells zodiac signs have that reveal their true feelings and how to know if he's the one based on his zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)


The Aries man is a natural competitor. He’s driven and determined and he wants to be first in everything. He sees normal, everyday scenarios as opportunities for competition and victory. And, yes, that includes dating.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

When you’ve found your perfect match in a Taurus man, you’ll both know it by how comfortable and stable you’ll feel. Taurus men can’t stand having any doubt or insecurity in a relationship, so when you two find each other, there won’t be any room for doubt.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)


If you don’t believe in love at first sight, you’ve never fallen for a Scorpio. Falling in love with a Scorpio is a lightning flash kind of love, that’s all there is to it. It’s dangerous, it’s risky, but it’s oh so worth it. Once it hits you, there’s no going back.
