How Your Zodiac Sign is Stalling Your Love LifeLifestyle The List
The season of snuggling when the weather gets chilly is upon us, but if you've been hitting up a crush, and they haven't gotten back to you, your zodiac sign might be able to tell you why. Kristina Guerrero sat down with Astrologer Jane Elizabeth to find out why your love life might be a little stale, and what your sign might have to do with it.
Your sign is one of strength, so, to impress a potential partner, you might feel like you have to show off how strong and independent you can be. While it's important to have self-confidence, talking about yourself too much can turn potential suitors off – not to mention that if you're too blazé about spending time with with your suitor, they might think you've got better things to do and move on to someone else.
Make sure when you're together, you give your date a chance to talk about themselves. And when you aren't together, still send signals that you actually want to make time for them and want to see them – even though you like to let people know you don't need no man (or woman). If you play your cards right, you might even make them feel extra special since you're usually over everyone, but you always have time for them.
Gentle and caring, you love to nurture and take care of a significant other, but some people might feel a bit smothered by your kind gestures or think you're taking things too seriously, too quickly. You don't have to stop doing nice things for your crush, but don't give them all of your caring nature at once. Give them a chance to nurture you as well, so they don't get used to you doing all the emotional heavy lifting.
As a Gemini, you've got a lot of personality for potential suitors to understand. If your potential boo gets too used to one side of you, they might be confused or surprised by your second side. So, don't try to hide a particular aspect of yourself because you think your partner might like one particular side of you better. Instead, let your suitor see both sides of you in small doses so they get to know your Gemini quirks and don't assume you've turned into a different person they might not be into.
Because your sign can be so influenced by your emotions at the moment, you can sometimes give potential suitors the impression that you're hot and cold about them. Some crushes might not get back to you because they think you just aren't into them. So, even when you're having moments of "I kind of want to be alone today", still try to reach out to your crush – even if it's just with an emoji – so they know that you're still interested and thinking about them.
You, Leo, are known for your feisty spirit, but not everyone is ready for your fire sign's intensity. So, when you're hanging with your crush, keep tabs on your self-protective fuse which can make you seem like you're ready to go to battle for your beliefs. As you and your beau get to know each other a little better, they'll soon learn how best to handle your heat.
As a Virgo, you love to give new romantic partners love and positivity at the start of your relationship. But, sometimes, as things progress, your need to keep the relationship perfect might expose your critical side, which can make your partner feel like they've been doing the wrong things all along.
Try to remember how positively your partner responded to your encouragement and appreciation at the start of your relationship, and try to keep giving them those things as the relationship goes on. When you two are really comfortable, you can talk about your criticisms and your partner will feel more like you're bettering your relationship, instead of feeling like you're picking it apart.
If you're a Libra, your crush might not be getting back to you because your intellectual nature and wisdom might actually intimidate them. Try talking to your crush about things that make them feel wise and smart so they feel like they're on even ground with your smarts. You're a master of balance, so, just remember a relationship won't get going without both of you feeling like the scales are pretty even.
As a Scorpio, you have a high demand for attention. You want to know that your significant other is paying attention to you by giving you eye contact and staying engaged in conversation. But, that doesn't mean that any time your crush is looking at their phone that they are immediately disinterested in spending quality time with you.
Try remembering that some people aren't as central attention focused as you might be. And if things get more serious, consider talking about your undivided attention concerns to make sure you and your boo are on the same page.
Because your sign is considered to be particularly intelligent, your potential partner might feel like they aren't smart enough for you. Be sure to ask your crush about things they feel like an expert in so they can "school" you once in a while. Giving them the chance to teach you something might make them feel like they're on equal footing when it comes to your big brain.
Because you're so practical and conservative, a potential partner might sometimes think that your frank views are you being condescending or insincere. Keep your partner feeling like they're on your level by remembering that not everyone thinks as practically as you do.
Remember to think about how your partner likes to communicate. If you can match their enthusiasm, even about more frivolous things, they'll feel like you're more open to their ideas and will be less likely to assume you're being short with them or you're pointing out their flaws.
As an Aquarius, you love to communicate and have fun, but that might make you come across as someone that needs too much attention. Even if you're excited to be chatting with your new boo, make sure you're actually giving them the chance to talk and the chance to pick an activity they might find as fun as you find – well – everything!
As a Pisces, you're connected to your emotions, which means you aren't afraid to show them. But some people aren't trained in the ways of Pisces feelings and might not feel like they know how to help you with them. So, while you're getting to know your new beau, don't be afraid to prompt them with how you're feeling.
A text that says, "I'm looking forward to seeing you – work definitely has me stressed" clues your partner in on how you're feeling and why so they don't think you're responding emotionally to something that they did. Plus, letting them know how you feel gives them the opportunity to learn what they can do to make you feel better.
