Just because he swiped right didn't mean you were in the clear.

You tried the old-fashioned way of dating, meeting people at work, at parties and other settings but it never seemed to work. So, you finally decide to try Tinder.

You think to yourself, “How hard could this be?” All I have to do is swipe left or right and then I will find people who I may be interested in or match with my zodiac sign.

Sounds easy enough. Then you realize this is only step one.

Now you must actually engage in conversation with this potential mate. As if talking to someone you have had a few in person interactions with isn’t hard enough, you now have to talk to someone you know practically nothing about on the Tinder dating app.


They don’t truly know your personality, your sense of humor, or your stance on every day issues we face in society or if that person believes in astrology, too. But you take a leap of faith and dive right in. Maybe you decide to start the conversation off lightly.

You ask him about his likes and dislikes, what he does for fun, and what his favorite pastime is. Or maybe you like to get straight to the point and ask the tough questions to see how he responds and to see what he believes in.

The conversation starts to die down, so you figure you’ll just resume the conversation the next day. Whatever approach you decide on for some reason it just doesn’t work. When you go back to check the thread, you realize that the person has completely disappeared. Did you just get unmatched? The answer is yes.


Though you may never fully know the exact reason why he decided to dip, your personality traits based on your horoscope sign could’ve had a lot to do with it. While it is always good practice to be your true self, sometimes certain qualities we have can be seen as a turn off for potential lovers.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


You can be impatient at times. When talking to someone you expect them to respond right away. If you are free to converse, then they should be free as well. If things aren’t going the way you’d like, you become a different person.

One second you can be fun and flirtatious when messaging your potential mate on Tinder, the next you can switch to being dull and short. Your potential mate will also notice that you can become aggressive. They are nervous to say the wrong thing because you seem ready to attack at any given second. This is a turn off.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Possessive much? You haven’t been talking to your potential mate on Tinder for long, and yet you’re already placing rules upon them. You don’t want them to talk to or hang out with other people. All of their focus should be on you.

Once you make your expectations clear, there is no room for discussion. You don’t like to compromise. You are stuck in your ways and you expect the person you’re talking to to get with the program. They don’t have any room to truly express themselves and do things that they like. This would make your matches run away from you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)


As a Gemini you are extremely inconsistent. You say all the right things, but your actions never follow through. You don’t like routines or being confined. Because of this you only reach out when it is convenient for you.


Outside of that you are known to disappear for extended periods of time. You are also indecisive. One day you’ll be interested in a person and then the next day you won’t. Your feelings change so fast it is scary. This makes people who converse with you on Tinder distance themselves since you don’t seem to know what you want. Especially if they are clear about who they are and how they feel.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)


Nobody likes a Debbie Downer. You are quick to see the worst in people and that makes them dislike you. Your potential Tinder match realizes that you think they are out to break your heart or simply play you. That is not a great way to start any relationship. You can also be manipulative.

You use manipulation to get the emotional response you want from others instead of just being direct about how you feel. You basically bend any situation to work in your favor and don’t see a problem with it. As a Cancer you also don’t like strangers. This makes it hard to talk to you, especially online. You aren’t easily willing to open up and give people a chance, so the conversation pretty much ends before it can really get started.   

LEO (July 23 - August 22)


You are the poster child for conceitedness. You love to be admired, and you dislike it when you aren’t treated like a queen. The phrase “me before you” perfectly sums up your interactions in relationships and would likely be one of the top reasons you were unmatched on Tinder.


Leos are known for being inflexible. You like when things and people align with your values/beliefs. If your Tinder match doesn’t fit your idea of a suitable candidate, then you immediately start to fall back and won’t put much effort into them. Your potential mate can sense this and will beat you to the punch for fear of not being able to meet your standards.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)


Take a chill pill. You can be overly critical which immediately turns people away. Someone talking to you on Tinder feels like they are being judged 24/7. They become wary of the things they open up to you about which usually leads to surface level conversations with no possibility of a deeper connection.

You are all work no play. Your Tinder match wants someone who can unwind at the end of the day and talk about and engage in activities that aren’t work related. Your job would always come first and that just wouldn’t work for them.


LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)


When talking to someone on Tinder it quickly becomes clear that you hold grudges. If the person said something a week ago that didn’t sit well with you, you somehow find a way to keep bringing it up and holding it against them.

You are also likely to hold things over a person’s head to get them to do what you want. If you are showing signs of this kind of behavior early on it makes them question what you might be holding on to from the past and how that can negatively affect your relationships moving forward. You also pity yourself more often than you should. So much time is spent talking about your own troubles that the other party never gets a chance to express themselves and their problems.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)


Being jealous is never a good look. When you talk to your potential mate on Tinder you always make it a point to bring up other women he/she might have interactions with outside of you. You get upset when he spends time with them and will proceed to have a bad attitude for as long as you see fit.

This is a negative quality in the eyes of the person you are talking to, and a sign that things would only escalate if you were in a relationship. You can be secretive as well. You don’t like to be forthcoming about who you are or what you are doing, which makes it difficult for someone to truly get to know you.


SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

All talk and no action. You often make promises but never deliver. Someone talking to you on Tinder is likely to be stood up by you. You always seem to find a way to get them to believe that you will make it up to them, but it is rare that you do. It is hard for people to open up to you for fear of their feelings being made seem unimportant or for fear of how you will respond.

You are insensitive. With you there is no telling the truth but telling it slant or making people feel better. You get straight to the point no matter how hurtful the things you say might be, and it is likely that your potential could not or did not want to deal with that.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)


A know it all. You have all the answers and you enjoy letting people know just how knowledgeable you are. Being right makes you happy, even if it is at the expense of someone else. Your Tinder match can never state their opinion or come with incorrect information.


You will correct them with a swiftness. You can also be condescending. You talk down to your potential mate on Tinder and it reminds them of a child being lectured by an adult. This is unsettling. No one wants to be with someone who can’t respect them and treat them like an equal.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)


You tend to run from emotional expression. Right when your potential partner thinks that the conversation will progress and become more open, you shut down. They never know how you feel. Do you like them? Did they do something to upset you?

Does the person turn you on? Who knows. You are cold. Your Tinder match feels like they are pulling teeth to get you to smile or overall interact with them. You don’t seem to care and that makes them want to stop trying to connect with you. Nobody wants someone who ok with being distant.


PISCES (February 19 - March 20)


You sometimes open up too fast. You are overly trusting which can scare some people away. Before your Tinder match even fully gets your name, you are already telling you’re your whole life’s story. Oddly enough you are fearful.

The moment you seem to be getting too close to a person, you tend to pull away. You let your fears control you and that is often your downfall in relationships. Your Tinder match wants someone who is willing to take a leap of faith on the wild and commonly known journey of love.
