Zodiac Signs Who Fall Out Of Love Easily Vs. Those Who Get Relationship Attached Too Soon

Do you get attached for life or are you ready for someone new?

Which type of lover are you? Do you fall in and out of love at the speed of light or does you find yourself fatally attached to a person before the relationship has grown roots?

Zodiac signs who get emotionally attached to their partners as soon as they start dating are already thinking about what their couple name would be or who would take whose last name when they inevitably get married.

Even if the relationship doesn't last, they jump from one partner to the next doing the exact same thing.

Even if the relationship doesn't last, they jump from one partner to the next doing the exact same thing. Of course, those horoscope signs grieve the end of a relationship as if it was the only one they had ever had.

Some of them have a hard time letting go for weeks or months after the relationship has ended, while others are on a journey to find love – and know that the right person is out there somewhere if they look hard enough (and date enough people).

Then there are the zodiac signs that get bored, and get bored fast in their relationship, then they are gone. These zodiac signs often prefer to be in casual hookups or FWBs over relationships because they have short attention spans for the people they date.

Once they get what they want out of the relationship, they're ready to call it quits and find someone else to light their fire again.

But if you're the kind of zodiac sign who tends to get bored fast in relationships, there might be something you're not considering that could help you stay in relationships longer – if that is something you're interested in.

Some of us tend to mistake being bored in our relationships with getting comfortable around the other person. When you first start dating someone, you're all about putting on a show to impress them.

You want them to know that you're a catch, so you dress up, go out, and spend a lot of money on each other.

When your relationship starts to settle, you still might want to go out every now and then, but you're probably also content with staying at home and bingeing Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Hulu... No? Just me? Okay.

For some zodiac signs, this is enough – this is exactly what they picture when they think about their ideal relationship; minus demons from the underworld, of course. Other zodiac signs, however, love a relationship that feels like it's the very first date all over again.

So, when these kinds of zodiac signs say that they're starting to feel bored, they're not necessarily bored with their partner, but they might be bored with the routine that their relationship has settled into now that they're getting comfortable around their partner.

But just because you are feeling bored doesn't mean there's nothing you can do about it. In fact, it might not be about your relationship at all, but maybe something within you that just makes it impossible for you to relax and get comfortable.

If your relationship always feels like it's on the brink of total boredom, maybe you need to schedule a weekly date night, have more open and honest conversations, or get back to basics and do the things that you loved doing when you first started dating.

There is a way to beat the boredom in a relationship and stay with the person you were so infatuated with at the beginning. But if that's not for you, then someone else out there will love what you bring to the table.

We've ranked which zodiac signs get bored fast and fall out of love early on in the relationship (vs. the horoscopes who get attached WAY too quickly), using astrology.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini runs very hot and cold, which means that he might be all over you one moment and done with you the next. And once his feelings have faded for you, they’re usually gone for good.

Gemini is more interested in casual, fleeting crushes than long-term relationships, so expect him to always have a sort of detachment from what you have together.

Gemini can’t function properly when things get too complicated between him and another person, so not only does he get bored in relationships easily, he prefers it that way.

Meaningless crushes that aren’t confusing or serious are best for him because he can just move onto the next person when he loses interest.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is kind of robot-like when it comes to relationships. You’re never really sure if there are any deeper emotions under the surface, and the minute you think things are going well, he ends them.

Aquarius gets bored VERY easily in relationships and ends things out of nowhere, and the worst part is that you can never tell he’s over your relationship until it’s too late.

Aquarius needs to have a strong emotional connection to someone for him to want to stay in a relationship long-term. That’s not to say that it’s impossible for him, but it certainly doesn’t happen often, either.

When he starts getting bored, he’ll end things emotionally before he physically leaves you. Aquarius can still have a physical relationship with someone he’s bored with, but once he’s totally done with you, that’s it.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius can certainly get down with someone seriously, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’ll still end things if (when) he gets bored. Sagittarius needs that flippy, excited feeling you get in your gut when you’re with someone all the time.

Once that feeling goes away, so does he. He gets bored in relationships easily because he highly values his freedom and independence.

If a relationship is starting to get serious, Sagittarius will immediately call it quits. His worst fear is feeling restricted or bored with someone, so the minute he feels one of those things happening, he calls it quits.

He wants constant adventure with someone, which might sound impossible for one person to give him, but to him, it can be interpreted as a long line of people, one right after the other.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra loves to fall in love – and will fall in love an average of five times a week (only joking). Libra has a hard time committing and, while he enjoys all of the wonderful things that come with dating. 

If he’s not being wooed and swept off his feet every day, he’s bound to get bored. He is also a very independent partner, which means that while he loves being close with someone, he doesn’t want to feel constricted.

Libra gets bored when there isn’t excitement every day in his relationship. One of his biggest fears is being in a relationship that doesn’t give him butterflies anymore, but he often confuses being comfortable with his partner as being bored.

Libra is certainly able to find a relationship that he can love being in for a long time, but it’s also common for Libras to be in love with love and not an actual person.

5. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries loves hard, but when you don’t give him exactly what he wants, when he wants it, he’s going to get bored with the relationship.

Aries’ boredom comes from his impatience with relationships in general (so, it’s not your fault). He doesn’t like any relationship that is drawn out or any person whose motto is “let’s take it slow” – in other words, if this isn’t a whirlwind romance from the beginning, it’s doomed to fail.

When Aries’ crazy, impulsive needs aren’t met right away, he will most definitely ghost you. Ask Aries about relationships past and he’ll probably have more than one story about a partnership that ended abruptly.

But does he care? No! He’s too busy off on another adventure with someone who will thrill him for a while before he ghosts them, too.

6. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is definitely NOT a clingy person – in any sense of the word. If you want to know if things are going well with him (or if he’s planning his escape), you have to pay attention to his actions.

He is a very “show me, don’t tell me” kind of lover, so you can expect him to be attentive and sensual when things are going well.

If things are tanking and he’s getting bored, you’ll only know after the fact. Virgo will give you whiplash with how fast he can remove himself from your life when he’s bored.

He doesn’t get bored as quickly as other zodiac signs do, but he would much rather just be single than with someone who isn’t interesting or exciting.

A thrilling relationship doesn’t always come easy for him, so expect to work hard to keep him around.

7. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn knows that you can’t reveal every single facet of yourself to someone new at first glance, which means you need to have patience before you can give up on someone.

Capricorn doesn’t get bored very easily because he knows that a new relationship is a learning process that requires work from both people.

Once he gets comfortable in the relationship and really lets himself dive in completely, he’s smitten. He’ll really only get bored if he thinks you’re wasting his time or if you two just don’t have enough in common to make things work.

Even when he’s in love, he’s not a clingy person, but he does appreciate a stable relationship with lots of affection.

8. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is sort of an enigma when it comes to attachment. When Pisces finds someone he really likes, cue the swelling, romantic music because he wants to feel this way forever.

So much so that he can become a clingy, codependent person who can’t function without his lover. This affection for his partner is even stronger when they reciprocate the feelings.

But because Pisces’ symbol is two fish swimming in opposite directions, you have to anticipate some pulling away from him.

Pisces can be hot and cold, so it’s not uncommon for him to be so in love one moment and asking himself what he could have possibly been thinking, falling for someone so quickly.

Think of it this way: When the relationship is toxic, he loses interest eventually; when it’s healthy, he’s attached for life.

9. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo loves being in a relationship, especially since it means he gets to spend all of his time with someone he genuinely loves and cares about.

That said, his relationship needs to feed his fiery, passionate soul for him to be invested in it 100 percent.

Leo doesn’t get bored easily, but he needs to know that you’re constantly dedicated to this partnership, just like him.

Leo’s biggest deal breaker is a partner who is ambivalent or unenthusiastic about the relationship. Leo is always a “Yes! Yes! Yes!” kind of lover, which means you have to be, too.

If he starts feeling ignored or like a second thought, his interest will start to fade. He might even start looking for someone else to free him from his boredom before you two have broken up.

10. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is one of those lovers that gets attached to someone without even realizing it at first. He is a firm believer in the slow and steady crawl to true love. 

So no matter how your relationship turns out to be in the end, he's always willing to put in his best effort for you.

He wants to woo you, sweep you off your feet, and prove to you why he's such a good fit for you. Before either of you know it, he's a permanent fixture in your life.

While he may not be a "love at first sight" kind of person in the traditional sense, he definitely moves into your life emotionally very early on in a relationship.

This is why is makes it so hard for him to call it quits because he feels like he knows you so well, and to give up something like that is harder than it looks for him.

11. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is always kinda-sorta looking for his forever person, even if he doesn't realize it himself. If you could read his thoughts, you'd know that whenever he meets someone he admires or cares about, he has a subconscious "what if?" where he wonders if this could be The One.

Of course, while he definitely gets attached to people quickly, Cancer doesn't fall in love very fast. It can be hard for him to risk it all for one person at first.

Once he's with you, though, he wants to be with you forever. Cancer is the kind of person who can't see a future without the person he loves, so when he's faced with heartbreak, it can take him months or years to get over that person.

He has a lot of love to give, and rather than fault himself for failed attempts at finding true love, he uses his past as a way to learn from his mistakes and try again (when he's ready, of course).

12. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

True love doesn't always come easy to Scorpio, but not for a lack of trying on his part. Scorpio might have to kiss a lot of frogs before he finds his prince or princess, but he'd rather try harder than all the other zodiac signs than not try at all.

While his mysterious nature might make it hard for him to open up to people, he feels that it's necessary to attach himself quickly to everyone. You know, just in case they're The One.

Because Scorpio gets attached way too quickly in relationships, it's easy for him to get his heart broken over someone who wasn't even worth it.

He has a habit of trying to turn casual partners and sometimes even one-night stands into someone more, and getting upset when it ultimately doesn't work out for him.

An especially powerful and influential attraction to someone can even erase his common sense completely, making him a little too crazy in love.
