5 Zodiac Signs Who Lust Bad Boys, Per Astrology

We don't always choose to fall in lust with a bad boy. In fact, it can be quite the opposite.

Falling in lust and falling in love are two VERY different experiences. However, it can be hard to know which one you're falling into until it happens. 

You might experience some deep feelings for someone, get close to them, and think that you're ready to take things to the next step together. I mean, for all you know, it's love. Then, something happens, and you realize that it was never love to begin with – just another case of falling in lust.

So, for everyone that this happens to, and for everyone who is just as confused as I am about what the difference between love and lust is, let's set the record straight. Love is the intense feeling of attraction you get for another person.

It's usually based around a strong emotional connection, rather than a physical one, however the physical attraction can come later. What differentiates love from other feelings is that it's more of a slow burn. You are content with getting to know every part of someone over a longer period of time.

When you're in love with someone, you don't care how long it takes to get to know this person inside and out – you're just happy to be with them. Lust, on the other hand, is usually a lot more passionate and physical. Rather than wanting to be with someone on an emotional level, you want to keep the fire burning bright through a physical connection.

In other words, the only thing you really care about when you're in lust with someone is keeping the desire you feel for this person alive. When you're in lust with a bad boy, you feel more like their lover than a partner. Falling in lust has the ability to turn into love, however lust itself doesn't last as long as love does.

For some zodiac signs, the thought of falling in love isn't there. All they care about is the passion that comes with falling in lust. Usually, they know that what they're feeling for someone isn't going to last, so they might as well enjoy what they've got in the moment.

And when you're falling for bad boys, a kind of man known for breaking hearts and leaving you wanting more, it's probably a good idea to go into the relationship knowing that it's not going to last forever. A few zodiac signs are prepared for this, and they are just interested in the lust part that comes with falling for a bad boy.

I can definitely see where this attraction comes from – bad boys can be oh so irresistible. Depending what your zodiac sign is, you might be just like me – drooling over a bad boy who has no intention of taking me home to meet mom. What can I say? Those "is he into me, isn't he" kind of bad boys are sexier than any other guys out there.

At least, this is true for these zodiac signs. Here are the zodiac signs most likely to fall in lust with bad boys, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


As someone who loves a good challenge, lusting after a bad boy is just second nature to Aries. The thrill of keeping up with a bad boy and his antics is one thing, but the tingly feeling that comes with the passionate relationship between the two of them is something else.

Aries likes the challenge of trying to keep up with a bad boy. Even if the fling or relationship doesn’t last, getting the chance to experience something so adrenaline-boosting and exciting is enough for her to lust about for a looong time after.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)


Gemini likes lusting after bad boys because it’s exciting and different. One of the worst things she can think of is being in a relationship that’s nothing but one boring routine after another. Even if she only gets to dream about being with a bad boy, it’s a lot more interesting than a typical, real-life relationship.

Bad boys always have a way of making you feel like they’re never totally into you, which is something Gemini isn’t used to. She’s the one who usually calls the shots and ends things when her attention starts to wan, so having the tables turn on her when she’s lusting after a bad boy is a fun change for her.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)


Scorpio is one of those zodiac signs who loves indulging in things (and people) she knows are bad for her. Whether it’s just a temptation she can’t say no to, or she’s convinced herself that this time will be different, lusting after bad boys is no exception.

Part of her likes the thrill of being with someone who breaks all the rules, but another part of her knows that if things don’t work out between her and a bad boy that she never has to go through opening up and being vulnerable or risking losing love. Interesting take, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)


Sagittarius (and really, most of her friends) sees herself as a very daring and adventurous zodiac sign. Not only does she lust after bad boys because they’re just as daring and adventurous as she is (hello, kindred spirits), but she also feels like she can keep up with them better than other signs can.

If we’re being honest, and I think Sagittarius would appreciate that, she feels like dating bad boys ups her cool cred, too. Sagittarius likes being popular and interesting, so it’s only natural for her to want to surround herself with equally cool and interesting people, don’t you think?

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)


Aquarius lusts after and is attracted to anyone who looks and acts different. So, if you’re a bad boy, and more specifically a bad boy with a signature pair of studded boots, hot pink hair, or something else that sets you apart from the crowd, there’s a good chance that Aquarius is already dreaming of you at night.

As someone with a natural distaste for authority and rules, Aquarius lusts after bad boys simply because they like to rebel. You’ll often catch Aquarius dreaming of being on the back of a motorcycle with her bad boy boyfriend, breaking rules across America.
