 Demanding Zodiac Signs Who Are High Maintenance In Their Relationships
Love, Zodiac

They are the hardest people to please.

High-maintenance people never think they act this way; rather, they believe they’re just taking care of their own needs. It doesn’t occur to them that the reason they’re never satisfied comes from within, not from other people.

And in astrology, when high-maintenance zodiac signs are in a relationship, it can appear as if their needs are doubled and intensified.

There are some demanding zodiac signs who are pushy, self-absorbed, and dramatic. And it all depends on their personalities.

If you’re high-maintenance, you tend to keep your partner on a tight leash. If they don’t respond immediately to your texts or calls, you can get very upset. You look for the hidden meaning behind everything. If they don’t what you want, it’s clearly because they don’t love you enough.

If you plan things and they don’t go the way you envisioned, it’s your partner’s failure and they’ll have to make it up to you. You can be extremely inflexible when it comes to doing something different than planned.

You can make mistakes and get away with it, but not your partner. Never your partner. You’ll expect an apology even though you rarely apologize.

Who are the most high-maintenance zodiac signs who can be demanding in their relationships?

1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers can be clingy, possessive, and will, at times, feel insecure in their relationships. If their partner doesn't respond right away to their texts, DMs, calls, or emails, they can get very upset, even if their partner eventually answers them back.

Cancer knows that their partner can be in the middle of something or that things can break or need to be recharged, but if they don't hear from them regularly, they can start to panic and doubt the security of the relationship. It's up to Cancer's partner to reassure and calm them down.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are all about making grand gestures when showing the one they love how much they care about them. And that's what Leo needs; small gestures don't cut it for them. Leos want big displays of affection and attention.

They know that big, showy overtures aren't in everyone's wheelhouse, but they think that if their partner truly loves them, they should make an effort to know what Leo likes and then do it. If this zodiac sign doesn't get what they want in their relationship, they'll have to instruct their partner.

3. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios have a definite jealousy streak, and it can be tricky to be in a relationship with them without inflaming that jealousy. They have strong, intense emotions, and they tend to be more comfortable taking action rather than discussing their feelings.

Once they believe they have reason to be jealous, they can be obstinate and not let go of that idea, even if it's clear that it's completely unfounded. It takes effort to alleviate Scorpio's jealousy and impulsiveness, and calm them down enough so they don't do anything rash.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos can be high-maintenance because they want everything to be perfect, which means doing it their way. It's not unlikely for a Virgo to ask their partner for help and them to complain that their partner isn't doing it right or using the method Virgo would use.

Virgos can be fussy about how they want something done, and it can put pressure on their partner, especially if they're not great about being told what to do. When your partner isn't grateful when you try to help them out, it tends to make you hesitate to help them in the future.

5. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries can be high-maintenance because they tend to be somewhat self-focused and impatient. If their partner is taking too much time to make a decision or is walking too slow, Aries can get annoyed. This zodiac sign often has a difficult time responding to texts or calls, may forget to include their partner in their decisions, and can be unnecessarily confrontational.

Aries' partners need to know to not react right away when Aries says something in anger, or it will make the situation worse. Aries don't stay angry for long, so it's best to let their anger dissipate before reacting.

6. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians will impress you when you're in a conversation with them. They're highly intelligent, funny, and they love to talk about many fascinating subjects. However, they can be high-maintenance with their partner when they monopolize every conversation.

This zodiac sign doesn't think of themselves as hogging the conversation; they just have a lot to say, but they tend to get so caught up in talking that they start to do a monologue rather than having a dialogue. It's up to Sagittarius' partner to make their presence known if they want to have their say.
