Dating can be a crapshoot and when you get the stars involved it might seem even more complicated.
The truth is, our zodiac signs offer us interesting insights into the likes and dislikes of a potential partner. We’re breaking down the biggest turnoffs for each zodiac sign so you know what not to do if you’re really into someone.
Aquarius – Pettiness
The intelligent Aquarius follows a simple pact as best they can, whether they realize it or not they prefer to “live and let live.” That means moving on from toxic situations and not looking back at the people involved.
As a result, Aquarius can’t stand when people get hung up on trivial BS or insignificant people who aren’t worth the energy. Payback isn’t a priority.
Leo – Being Ignored
The fastest way to pull the Leo’s tail and annoy the heck out of them is to split your attention between them and someone else.
Leo’s biggest pet peeve is being left out, especially if it’s around random people they don’t know. Closeness goes a long way with a Leo but ignoring one will get you swiftly booted from their inner circle.
Pisces – Ungratefulness
The word “thanks” and acknowledging someone’s hard work goes a long way with the overly-compassionate Pisces.
On the flip side, if you don’t express enough gratitude around them, they will sense you may not fully appreciate the people and things around you. Awareness of privilege is very important to them—if you don’t demonstrate it, they will lose interest fast.
Cancer – Targeted Criticism
Cancer does a great job of hiding their emotions from others, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t feel them wholeheartedly.
If a person calls them out on something they are self-conscious about, they may not show it, but they will recede into their shell and be wary of that person in the future. Cancer internalizes criticism in a way that often hurts their self-esteem.
Aries – Being Underestimated
Aries are known to be bold, opinionated, and often independent leaders. They are naturally drawn to leadership roles and have an endless drive to succeed, or at the very least, avoid failure.
As a result, people who doubt Aries’ abilities, block their opportunities, and discredit their talents will make a quick enemy. This applies in both relationships and life—Aries requires someone’s full faith in them.
Taurus – Unreliability
The easiest way to annoy a Taurus is to be flaky and unreliable. They usually have a plan in mind and don’t react kindly when someone ignores their preparation or inconveniences it in any way.
Taurus is turned off by someone who is just downright unreliable and unpredictable.
Gemini – Boring People
Gemini is certainly not the easiest zodiac sign to date. They have a tendency to get very bored very easily and sometimes they write people off as “boring” long before truly getting to know them.
They have a short attention span for new people and will immediately be turned off by those they deem “average” or dull in conversation.
Virgo – Laziness/Slobiness
Virgos tend to be perfectionists who take great pride in their work and home. Their standards can be difficult to live up to, especially if you are someone who prefers to wake up on the lazier side of the bed.
Virgos are quickly turned off by people who overindulge in laziness, are unmotivated, and slobby around the house or workplace.
Libra – Pushy People
Libra is a deep thinker who likes to plan every decision ranging from small to life-changing. Since they are so logical and organized, it drives them absolutely crazy when someone tries to pressure them into making an immediate decision.
Libra wants to do their research and arrive at their own well-thought-out conclusion. Anyone who pushes them to do it faster risks getting an earful.
Scorpio – Insecure People
An insecure person can sometimes be the biggest bully. The Scorpio has no time for people who put others or themselves down and they can sense insecurity from a mile away.
If a person is constantly submissive, shy, or insulting themselves, Scorpio will not stick around long enough to get to know them. Negativity pushes Scorpio away whereas confidence draws them close.
Sagittarius – Pessimists
Sagittarius usually manages to keep a fairly positive outlook on things, they are a glass-half-full type of person, and if there is a silver lining to be found, Sag will seek it out.
This makes them especially indifferent toward people who have negative energy or a tendency to be pessimistic. If a person is constantly complaining or looking for negativity, they won’t find themselves in the company of Sagittarius for long.
Capricorn – Freeloaders/Moochers
Capricorn takes pride in being self-sufficient and hard-working. They are determined and relentless when a challenge comes up.
As a result, the Capricorn can’t stand it when someone is a freeloader or a mooch. A person who relies on everyone around them for simple things or money will never be respected in Capricorn’s eyes.
