Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Have A "Side Dude," Per Astrology

I think we need to talk about monogamy. The idea of monogamy has changed vastly in the past 20 years or so, and I think it's important to note. This generation doesn't automatically go to buying flowers and "courting" when they want to date someone.

And as for making things "official" with someone, I think we all prefer to just let ourselves fall into something familiar instead of making a big deal about it. Clearly, monogamy is not what it once was. I mean, some of us believe that monogamy is as simple as not texting anyone else when you're interested in or dating one person.

Other times, monogamy can be choosing to live with someone, which, in itself, is a big commitment anyway. Commitment and monogamy can still be scary, though. You don't have to be considering marriage and babies to still get freaked out about spending all of your time with only one person.

I mean, I've been in a relationship with the same person for well over six years now, and it still freaks me out when we talk about the future. That doesn't mean I don't love this person, but monogamy is still weird to me.

As someone who's horoscope sign prefers casual relationships to more serious ones (usually), I see the fun in both hook-ups and monogamous relationships. While I wouldn't consider it now, I see why so many people like having side dudes in their lives.

If you ask me – and some other zodiac signs – if I think that one person can give you everything you need in a relationship, I might hesitate. Having a side dude isn't always a good idea, since it can be seen as cheating to some people, but I don't believe that all monogamous relationships can give you everything you need, either.

Maybe that's just a roundabout way of saying that guys on the side aren't the worst thing to happen to relationships, but what I'm really trying to say is that the definition of monogamy has changed so drastically from what it was as early as 20 years ago that you can't really judge someone on the nature of their relationship if you're not in it.

While we shouldn't be doing that anyway, I think it's truer in this day and age. If you're still unsure of this, maybe ask one of these zodiac signs for their take on it.

Here are the zodiac signs most likely to have a "side dude," according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries has sooo much love to give! How much love, you ask? Too much for one person. She’s likely to have a side dude (or two) because she doesn’t want to feel like she has to be tied down to one person for the rest of her life.

On top of that, Aries gets bored very easily. She needs side dudes in her life because there’s a good chance she’s gonna get bored of you and want to move on. She might want to come back into your life later on though, so don’t write her off just yet!

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is a very restless and indecisive zodiac sign. She can barely decide on a pair of shoes to match her #OOTD (that’s outfit of the day), so how in the world is she going to decide on a serious boyfriend?

Gemini likes having side dudes because it means she doesn’t have to settle for one person. It also means she doesn’t have to feel bad about her curious nature, either. She can bounce from guy to guy to satisfy her curiosity without feeling guilty! Perfect!

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

While Libra certainly wants to find love and all of that, she has a very hard time making decisions and sticking with them. She’s the kind of girl who will always look a little nervous and unsure at the beginning of a relationship because she’s not entirely positive she made the right choice.

Having side dudes gives Libra the feeling of being on The Bachelorette. She can test drive a bunch of guys at once before deciding which one to give her rose to. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it does take some of the pressure off Libra.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is the lone wolf of the zodiac sign who doesn’t want to get into anything monogamous until she’s exhausted all of her other options. For her, being in a long-term relationship with one person just seems kind of boring.

Sagittarius also doesn’t like the idea of being tied down before she’s ready. Having side dudes in her arsenal means that she can keep things exciting and casual without feeling like she’s cheating on anyone or getting bored. Hey, if it works, it works!

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn does like the idea of finding love and – more importantly – investing in a secure relationship. That said, having side dudes is her way of weeding out the guys she knows aren’t worth her time in the long run.

Capricorn can also be very picky, so having a lot of guys to choose from is better when it’s time to start making decisions. Having side dudes also allows her to keep being selfish and putting herself and her career first until she’s ready to settle down and get serious with someone.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is the anti-relationship type. As a rule, she prefers to do things her own way, which usually means blending casual dating with serious relationships, open-ended things with long-term stuff. Vague and mysterious, but that’s Aquarius for you.

She’s likely to have a few side dudes in her back pocket because she doesn’t believe in monogamy the way tradition tells her she should. She believes that you can write your relationship rule book however you see fit, and if that means having some side dudes, then sign her up!
