Why Men Test Women In A Relationship, By Zodiac Sign

Life is a series of tests. Some you pass with flying colors and others you'll possibly fail. 

Sadly, men test women in many ways to see if they are compatible.

It can get very annoying, especially when you feel like the whole relationship is turning into one big mind game.

Does he like me? Does he not like me? It can become really hard to tell.

Maybe he wants to see if you are confident, or maybe he wants to see how well you handle being under pressure? Regardless of the intention, a man may test you to see just how willing you are to be with him.

Women should equally test men – it's only fair, right?

When it comes down to it, there are some men who need some sort of control when in a relationship. They try to find a position of power to see how a woman will act on a first date or the first time meeting his friends. Passing sets the tone for the entire relationship. Failing it may mean there won't be a second date, or third, depending on his intention for you.

Women shouldn't feel like they need to be tested, and if a man feels the need to test a woman, maybe she just isn't the right one for him.

If she doesn't seem like the one, then he shouldn't play with her emotions and put her through any sort of test. It isn't fair to either person in the relationship.

It can happen, and here is how a man will test you, by zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 20 – April 19)

Aries, men test you by seeing just how far you'll go to prove your loyalty. They may see if you will cancel plans last minute or ask around to see if you're dating other people.

They have a may of making you seem like you aren't doing enough; when this happens, tell them right away that you are as loyal as they come and if they can't see that, they should walk away right then and there.

You are a go-getter, Aries and know your limits. If someone is pushing you too hard to be someone you are not, it is time to let them go. No test is worth your sanity.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, men will test you by poking around at your weaknesses. They've heard through the grape vine that you tend to be uncompromising, so to test this they make dates that may not be your cup of tea.

Maybe they make reservations at a restaurant that has food you've never tried or they plan a movie night with only scary movies (and you hate scary movies).

Either way, they will wait and see if you pull a Britney Spears circa 2007 and shave off all of your hair and break their car windows because you don't get things you way.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, you aren't one for a routine. You like to be wild and spontaneous, which makes dating and settling down hard at times.

Men will test you by seeing if you can handle being placed into a repetitive box; this box would be full of "we're already practically married so let's skip all the fun stuff and go straight to the boring couple stuff."

He will wait and see how you handle being confided to one man, which isn't right on his part. If he can't love you for you who are, then he isn't the one.

If he wanted a person who wanted to settle down and pay the bills together, he shouldn't have pursued a Gemini.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, men will test you by introducing you to their parents on the first date. He knows his mom is kind of judgemental and wants to see how you handle his crazy family. You don't do well when people don't like you – especially moms.

You want to be able to bond and connect with other women, not feel like they hate you. Sure, he should have prepared you or waited a little longer to take you to meet the family, but at least you can now officially say an ex boyfriend took you to meet his parents on the first date and you can laugh with your friends at that statement.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, men will test you by seeing if there really is a chill, humble side to your personality. Leos are known for being very confident and outgoing beings with no room for self-doubt or self-pity.

Men will see if there is any part of you that is capable of simply staying in one night and playing a board game or watching Netflix.

If you really like him, you will rearrange your crazy schedule for a night of relaxation – we know, the horror! He wants to know if you're as confident and carefree as you say you are.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, you tend to have an all work and no play attitude. Men will test you by seeing if you really can get loose one night and let it all hang out. Can you really put your work aside on a week night and go out to the bars for a few drinks?

He will want to see if you are willing to live on the edge a little and be a bit daring. Never do anything out of your comfort zone, Virgo. But, it could be fun to dress up and let your drunk alter-ego come out to play.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, men will test you by seeing just how long you can carry that grudge of yours. He wants to see how long you'll stay mad at him after an argument, knowing you are one to hold onto that anger even after a week has passed.

Before getting serious, he wants to see if you're able to let go of your frustrations and hug it out. If you really have feelings for him, try to push past that anger and be the bigger person (you can always get payback later).

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, men will test you by trying to prove you wrong. Scorpios are known for always wanting to be right in every situation and men sometimes feel threatened by that.

In order to see if you can admit when you're wrong, men will try and get you to trip on your words and say something untruthful.

Men really suck sometimes, but if you like a guy and know something you said wasn't truthful, tell him instead of proving his theory right.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, you can be a tad on the impatient side. You probably know this and men notice it, too. Men will test your patience by trying to annoy you and push your buttons.

Don't let them get under your skin, but also try and be patient when it comes to situations where you really can't control what happens.

If you are out to dinner together and the line is out the door, try and keep your cool instead of freaking out and demanding to leave.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn, men will test you by trying to get you to see the positives in life. You always expect the worst and see the glass half empty.

Men will want to see if you are capable of seeing the positives in life instead of being so pessimistic.

You can't help being a worrier, but do try and stay calm during situations that make you think the world is about to end.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, men will test you by seeing how far your anxious mind will go. Men know you'll do anything to support a cause you believe in, but would you do anything for him?

You don't have time for mind games and tests, but you do try and push yourself when you're with a guy you truly like.

He wants to make you confront your feelings instead of hiding from your emotional expressions.

Whether he sits you down and demands you tell him about your deepest darkest secrets or asks you about your ex, don't say anything you aren't necessarily comfortable with.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, you are such a kind soul and men can see this trait from a mile away. You like to keep the peace and never want to hurt anyone's feelings. Men will test you by seeing if you can speak up for yourself.

Maybe they will put you in a situation where you feel uncomfortable and don't believe in the viewpoints others are expressing or maybe they will simply ask you what bothers you in this world. Either way, they want to try and get some sort of anger out of that sweet soul of yours.
