Here’s Why You Keep Falling For All The Wrong People, Based On Your Zodiac Sign by: Kim Quindlen
(March 21st to April 19th)
You’ve got an adventurous spirit which, for the most part, is wonderful. It’s the reason why you’ve already had so many exciting and unique experiences. But that bold part of your personality also means that you impulsively jump into things too fast – with people who are interesting and fascinating on the outside, but who often turn out to be unreliable or flaky once you get to know them.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’re an extremely warmhearted and giving person when you’re in a relationship, but because of that, you often unconsciously seek out people who you think need fixing. And because of the overwhelming emotional imbalance, you both end up getting hurt.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Your personality is bright; your energy and liveliness are contagious. The only problem is that you end up attracting the types of people who fall for your vibrancy but panic when they realize that you can’t be “on” all the time, and that sometimes you get anxious and tense, just like everyone else.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Some of your best qualities are your empathy and your ability to read others. But you run into trouble when you end up trying to connect with someone on a deeper level who is not ready to open up to you. You need to be with someone who embraces your intuitive, sympathetic nature. Otherwise you’ll drive yourself crazy.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
You’re generous and warm, but to the point where it can put your heart in danger when it comes to dating. Your instinct is to go after people who are mysterious and wounded, and if they hurt you out of self-protection, it’s not something you get over quickly.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
You’ve never been one to crave the spotlight, but you often end up dating people who do. And because you’re such a steady, dependable person, the people you go for often end up focusing on more materialistic things and taking you for granted.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
You’re extremely charming and flirtatious, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But it is a problem when you end up with people who are too smitten with you to call you out on your bullshit. Because you can often be self-indulgent, it’s important that you find someone who will stand up to you, otherwise you’ll have a hard time finding a relationship that’s even on both sides.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
You can be a powerful force, which is nothing to apologize for. But the emotional and spirited side of you can be a lot to handle for someone who’s not prepared. Rather than going after the typical passionate kind of person that you lean towards, you need someone whose temperament is more placid and calm – you’ll be a much better match for each other.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You are incredibly joyful and good-humored, but your optimism can get you in trouble when it blinds you from seeing the red flags popping up over your current fling. It’s good to search for the best in everyone, but it’s also important to make sure you’re not allowing anyone to take advantage of your kindness.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Being an extremely disciplined and dedicated person is a great thing when it comes to setting yourself up for a successful adulthood. But because you’re so logical, you tend to go for people who you think you make a good match with on paper. But as you’ve probably learned, being a good match on paper doesn’t often equate to being a good match in real life. You have to start paying more attention to your gut and to the chemistry you feel with someone, and stop worrying so much about specific qualifications.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Honesty and loyalty are two things that people can always depend on you for. But you also tend to compartmentalize your emotions in order to protect yourself – so you often gravitate towards people who you don’t see as a threat. You’ll have much more luck (as scary as it is) trying things out with someone who pushes you to open yourself up and who encourages you to let yourself feel things more intensely.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You’re extremely sensitive and selfless, but your idealism has caused you to be hurt in the past – from believing too much in the best of people. Rather than being with people who you just hope will change, you need to go after the types who aren’t hurting you in the first place. Because people are only ever going to change when they want to – as much as you want to help, you can’t do anything about it.
