Looking for love? It’s not an easy thing to find, and your zodiac sign might actually be sabotaging you on top of everything else. If you want any hope of finding love this year, make sure you focus on yourself first and foremost. Working on these common issues based on your sign might just be the ticket to finding something long-lasting.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’re going to need to make more solid plans. Your dates aren’t down with your constant shifting plans, so make up your mind and stick to something.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You need to be able to see through the, ahem, bull feces if you have any hope of getting that OTP. There’s someone in your life that isn’t giving off the best first impression, but you need to be less judgey and start paying closer attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your fear of long distance is holding you back. Sure it didn’t work for your friends, but that doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. Open yourself up to the possibility that your love might be more than whatever the Tinder radius is.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
All of your past relationships have fallen apart because you’re too quiet. You need to start projecting more. Make yourself heard and it will attract someone that you truly appreciate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Stop doing what THEY want. If you find yourself being steamrolled left and right start speaking your mind more. It might mean the end of a relationship, but that’s only because something better is around the corner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You keep seeking out dates that keep you from slowing down and enjoying the quiet moments. Instead of skydiving, trying a candlelit dinner. Let things get deeper without outside distractions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You keep putting your relationships before you. This keeps you from taking care of yourself in any substantial way. How can you be a good partner if you can’t get your own life in order? Spoiler: you can’t.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Constantly getting bored with the person you’re currently seeing? It’s time to power through the low times to see if things get exciting again. You might be surprised and want to stick to the relationship long term.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re most comfortable with relationships that have an end date. It’s not your fault Tinder keeps matching you with people who are going to grad school across the country in 2 weeks or have recently joined the Army and are deploying next month. Next time, don’t pursue it if it’s going to be ending so soon.
LIBRA (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)
You let your parents get in the way too often. If they think there’s something wrong with your latest partner, chances are you’ll be noticing the same faults within in 2 days. Don’t introduce anyone until you’re sure your relationship can handle minor annoyances (like nail biting, eww).
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You like dates that begin at the movies and end with a quick dinner at a respectable low-cost restaurant. Unfortunately, you’re bored more often than not. It’s time to start having fun on dates. Do something crazy with someone you wouldn’t normally date.
