Imagine that you had this longtime friend, he was with you all his life. You always had a crush on him.

You thought he was kind of cute, and you think, "Maybe I can start something with him”.

Whenever you make a move though, he pulls away. he builds up barriers, he says “ I don't think we are right for each other.”

That rejection always sucks, but why did he do it? Why does he give up when it's clear there's a chance for lasting love? Why is it that he holds back when there's true chemistry between the two of you, and there's evidence that you get along so well? 

You have similar hobbies. You always get a special feeling when he enters a room. You feel that you always want to be with him.

Astrology can answer why he doesn't want to advance your friendship into a romantic relationship with you.

Here are the reasons he continues to back away when there's a deep, lasting connection, based on his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is a leader, a natural born leader. So as all leaders when he makes a decision that is final. You can't convince him to change, he will be stubborn with how he feels about you.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is always blunt people. Perhaps with this kind of man, there's a reason you may not realize. If there is he will certainly tell you why we aren't meant to be.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are fickle, one moment they will act as they like you, the second they will be stone cold. It’s important to follow his actions, not his words. If he's saying yes but is acting no, then you need to let him go.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

It's hard to convince him to love again, any betrayal is damaging to his ego so you need to take things slowly. Show him your true intentions is to just love him. Sometimes though you need to analyze if he needs to do some work on himself before he can love again.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos love human connection, so sometimes they may show affection but truly they aren't into you. We do tend to go into our own bubble and think about only what we want, but maybe the guy just isn't into you. Leos just love to love.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are very logical, they look to explain why they aren't interested in you. Possibly he is just isn't interested. The beauty of most guys is that they're pretty blunt about what they want out of you. If he doesn't respond to your messages, he doesn't want you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras love to leave the door open even when they reject, they like to have connections with people so ultimately what you can do with that situation is really about what's best for you own well being. Can you stand being friends with him and possibly have a chance but risk getting even more heartbroken, or you can cut the chord now and move on. The choice is yours.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

They are very distrustful and jealous of any person. So anger and fighting is second nature to a lot of Scorpios, don't be tempted. Moving him away from an angry state of mind will show the truth, if he continues to be angry he probably ain't into you, if he shows a softer side he probably is into you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

People who are Sagittarius love to be free, so it may not be you, it’s them. If you meet a person like that trying to lock them down or push a relationship will simply make them run away. Only until he mentions a relationship label is when you can consider being with him long term.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns always want more, what's next. So it’s no wonder they may be enthusiastic about starting a fling but turn cold when you want a relationship. They want freedom, so sometimes the best decision is to let them be free.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

They run from emotions. This leads you to build up walls after a breakup. If they do this you can try and work around it, or maybe they still need more time to themselves.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces always love to bring a smile to someone's day, so it’s no wonder they'll be the same with you. There could be a chance he truly likes you but there's also a chance he really doesn't. You need to look at his actions, if he's not asking you out, then he probably doesn't see a future with you.
