Why He Will Never Give Up On Your Relationship, For All Zodiac Signs Unsplash

When the going gets tough in a relationship, it’s easy to tell yourself (and your S.O.) that you’re done trying and you want to end the relationship.

None of us want to have to deal with the bad days in a relationship, and we all want to think that there’s a relationship out there that is nothing but smooth sailing every day.

Unfortunately, that isn’t the case, nor should you hope for a relationship that has no disagreements or problems.


A relationship with absolutely no problems means you and your S.O. never get a chance to work through things together.

Instead, you don’t really know each other as well as you think you do because you’ve never seen each other distressed, frustrated, or downright angry.

How can you ever expect to handle an argument or problem together if you’re always happy and smiley every single day? That can’t be a very healthy relationship, now can it?

Now, this doesn’t mean that you should go looking for a relationship that is based on hate or one where you are constantly arguing with each other every day, either.

The healthiest, happiest relationship is one where there is a good balance between positive experiences you can celebrate together and negative ones you can learn from together.

When the going gets tough in your relationship, the most important thing to remember is that it is you and your S.O. versus the problem – NOT you versus your S.O.


It’s so easy for us to gang up on one another and completely forget what the real issue is. And as for giving up? That’s definitely a no-go if your relationship is important to you.

When I was younger, my solution to dealing with an S.O. who was making me angry or frustrated was to unfollow them on Twitter, delete their number, and pretend like I didn’t even know who they were.

Thankfully, I’ve grown up since then, but there are times when I still have to silence my boyfriend's number when he gets on my nerves. I don’t do this out of spite anymore, but to calm my thoughts until I have a way to articulate how I feel to him.


It’s still a work in progress for me, but I now look for ways to solve the problem at hand, not look for ways to give up on my relationship.

If you have an S.O. who is willing to go to great lengths to show you that they are not going to give up on your relationship, you should take that to heart. It means that you’re worth fighting for – even if there are times when you don’t feel like that’s true.

There are so many reasons not to give up on your relationship. And even when there are times when you’re not really sure what those reasons are, you can at least put up a good fight before calling it quits, am I right? Just remember: It’s you two against the problem.

Here is why he won’t give up, according to his zodiac sign.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries won’t give up on you because you’re a risk that he’s willing to take. You may not see yourself as a risk or even someone slightly thrilling in the least, but he sees you as someone who gets his heart racing as much as a rollercoaster does.

Aries is all about taking risks. Maybe he’s been acting slightly more reserved lately around you – making you feel like he may want to give up on you. But really, it’s that calm before taking the leap, and he’s just getting ready to take a risk for love.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is the ultimate romantic. He may not always flaunt it, but true love is vastly important to him. If he can’t have all the beautiful things that come with true love, then he doesn’t want it.

But he’s not giving up on you because to him, you are true love. You have the heart of gold that he fell in love with the first time he laid eyes on you. You might not always have perfect days together, but he’s far too stubborn to give up on you and your heart.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini spends so much of his time making sure that he does the right thing and makes the right choices in life that it can often sabotage him in the end. The time he spends making a decision is the time he could be living life and learning from his mistakes as he goes.

So why won’t he give up on you if he’s always overthinking his choices? Because you’re the one decision in his life he’s willing to be wrong about. Even if the future is scary and you have to learn from your mistakes together, he’d rather take that chance than wish he could have done things differently.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is the caretaker of the zodiac. Being able to take care of others – especially you – is super important to him. When it comes to his relationship, he is always in caretaker mode, making sure that everything is perfect and everyone is happy.


The reason Cancer will never give up on you is because he knows that if he does, he may lose you forever. Cancer is not a gambling man, and losing you is a risk he isn't willing to take. He would much rather know what the future will hold instead of diving into the unknown, and with you by his side, he’s ready for anything.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo takes his relationship with you very seriously. Not only is he incredibly passionate, but he’s also very intense. To him, love is not something you give up on or throw away as soon as things get tough. He’s not one to shy away from hard work, after all.

The reason he won’t give up on you is because you have kept him smiling since day one. He knew that you were going to be someone he kept around for a looong time from the first day because you made him feel like his most authentic self. Being with someone who makes him feel happy and loved is something he’d never give up on.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo isn’t willing to let his guard down for just anyone, so if you are able to see the most vulnerable version of Virgo, count yourself lucky. Being able to see Virgo’s vulnerable side is a gift.


Virgo won’t give up on you because you make him want to be a better person. He often hides behind his perfectionist personality when he’s scared, but knowing you love him even when he makes a mistake shows him just how much you care about and love him. Why would he give that up?

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

One of the things Libra is most terrified of is a relationship that loses its glitz and glamour after a while. He never wants to be in an old and boring partnership (that is if he can help it). That’s why it takes him a while to really commit to someone. What if it doesn’t turn out the way he wants it to?

That said, Libra isn’t going to give up on you. Why? Because you show him that romance and love don't have to be surprises and spontaneity every day. He knows that, with you, love and romance are about being with the person you care most about. And no matter what, you always make him feel loved.


SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio won’t give up on you because you scare him a little bit – in a good way, of course. Scorpio isn’t the kind of person to open up to just anyone, and being with you is a new experience every day.

There’s part of him that wants to close off and be the enigma that everyone thinks he is, but there’s another part of him that appreciates having you to get him out of his comfort zone. It might be scary for him to be vulnerable, but he’s not going to give up on the one person who makes him feel like he can actually do it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

One of the main reasons Sagittarius is not a fan of monogamous, serious relationships is because it’s so easy to lose your identity in one. Instead of being yourself, there’s a chance you could become just one half of a relationship for the rest of your life.


That said, there’s something different about you that he appreciates. Sagittarius won’t give up on you because he let him be his most authentic self. He doesn’t feel smothered or claustrophobic in his relationship, and being able to find something like that is hard to come by. You’re the best thing in his life, and he’s not gonna give that up.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is willing to wait patiently for the love of his life to reveal themselves to him if it makes him more likely to find The One. When you date Capricorn, you have to know that he’s looking for his “forever”, not just someone for the night.

The reason he’s not going to give up on you is because you feel like perfection to him. Because he’s so picky about who he dates, it’s easy for him to write off perfectly good partners because they’re not exactly what he’s looking for. But you? You blow everyone else out of the water, and he truly sees perfection in you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius prefers a relationship where he gets to make all the rules to a more traditional set-up. He likes keeping things casual because it gives him a reason to get out of a relationship if it starts to get too serious, too fast. That said, there’s something about you that keeps him hanging on.

Aquarius doesn’t like to give up, but relationships have a tendency to scare him. But with you, giving up just isn’t an option because you’re unusual to him. You make him see the world in a different way, and you intrigue and surprise him every day. He doesn’t want to give up on someone who clearly understands what he’s all about.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is the kind of zodiac sign who treats people the way he hopes they will treat him. When it comes to relationships, he wants to be with someone who is as good a listener and supporter as he is.

The reason Pisces isn’t going to give up on you is because you have proven to be that person to him. You are his constant supporter, a shoulder to lean on, and an ear to listen to him when he needs to talk. These things are so very important to Pisces that when he finds those traits in someone, he holds on tight.
