Getting into a relationship is like signing a contract: both parties need to mutually agree upon the terms and conditions. It’s why we all have deal-breakers when it comes to dating, regardless of our zodiac signs. They may be different, but the fact of the matter is, sometimes, there are traits and habits you simply can’t overlook. Curious to know what your deal-breaker might be? Here’s your absolute relationship deal-breaker based on your zodiac sign!
Aries (March 21st – April 19th): A reserved partner
Fire sign Aries is boisterous, loud, and always up for an adventure. They’re the type of sign that wouldn’t touch boredom with a 10-foot pole. For this reason, their deal-breaker is a partner who can’t keep up with their lively antics. An Aries will be bored with (or even annoyed by) a partner who isn’t outgoing or challenging.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th): A stubborn partner
A Taurus will absolutely hate dating a partner who is stuck in their ways. Why, you ask? Because they want to be the stubborn one in the relationship! If you put two people like this together, they will obviously butt heads. Taurus needs someone who will bend to their will and go along with their opinions and ideas.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th): An antisocial partner
If you’re the type that can go days without seeing another person, you may want to avoid dating a Gemini. Geminis are very social creatures and love to spend time hanging with their friends, or texting them when they’re not around. For this reason, Gemini’s deal-breaker is an antisocial partner. If their partner can’t go out to a party or has a problem when Gemini does, this air sign will be gone with the wind.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd): An unemotional partner
As a water sign, Cancer is deeply connected to their emotions. They desire the same type of connection within their relationships, and they’ll constantly be looking out for how their partner is feeling. However, if they happen to be with someone who puts their head over their heart, or doesn’t have the capacity to recognize their own emotions, Cancer could be unhappy in the relationship. A partner who can’t open up to them and give them the emotional intimacy they need is their absolute deal-breaker.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd): A partner who’s a slob
As the designated fashionista of the zodiac, Leo loves to primp and prides themselves on looking good. (Fun test: next time you’re with your Leo friend, count how many times they touch their hair). If a Leo is in a relationship, they want their partner to look as good as them (but never better). If they end up with someone who is a slob or doesn’t care about their appearance, this fire sign will surely break things off.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd): An unambitious partner
As perfectionists, Virgos believe there is always room for improvement. They have high hopes for themselves and they can’t stand if their partner isn’t as goal-oriented as they are. For this reason, an unambitious partner simply won’t do for Virgo. After all, can you imagine Beyoncé with anyone other than the equally powerful and ambitious Jay Z?
Libra (Sept. 23rd – October 22nd): A negative partner
Sugar, spice, and everything nice didn’t just create the Powerpuff Girls. Somewhere in that pot was also a Libra, we’re sure of it. Libras like to play nice and be liked by others. They’re all about good energy, social grace, and manners. If they have a partner who is negative, mean, or impolite, Libra will surely be on the lookout for a new partner. And with their natural charm, they’ll have no problem finding one.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st): A dishonest partner
Everyone knows how intense Scorpios can be. This is a sign that wants to know everything about you: what you’re thinking, where you’re going, and who you’ll be with. They may be okay with a lot of things, but if they catch you in a lie, you better believe all hell will break loose. Scorpios are vengeful, and if they feel like they’ve been wronged (especially by a partner they loved and trusted), they’ll either go radio silent or start plotting their revenge. Most times, it’s both.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st): A lazy partner
Sagittarius, like Aries, is always on the go. They’re the explorers of the zodiac, and they love to visit new countries and try new restaurants or activities. If they find themselves with a partner who’d rather stay at home, or who doesn’t want to randomly show up to the airport with a suitcase and hop on the very next flight out, Sagittarius will feel like their freedom is being stifled. They need someone who is just as energetic and extreme as them.
Capricorn: (December 22nd – January 19th): An inauthentic partner
Capricorns work hard to achieve everything they have: their career, their chic taste, and their self-esteem. It’s why they can spot when someone is faking it from a mile away. Capricorn’s relationship deal-breaker is a partner who is inauthentic. Pretending you’re up-to-date on foreign affairs? Capricorn knows. Trying to pass off that knock-off bag as the real thing? Nope, Capricorn already knew before you even sat down at the table.
Aquarius: (January 20th – February 18th): A narrow-minded partner
Aquarians are ruled by Uranus, a planet embodied by change, revolution, and freedom. They are typically rebellious, independent thinkers with a whole lot of unconventional ideas brewing up top. For this reason, they can’t handle being with a narrow-minded partner who doesn’t understand or want to listen to all of the out-there thoughts and ideas they have.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th): A partner who isn’t romantic
Pisces wants that hearts and flowers, sweep-you-off-your-feet fairytale love you see in the movies. They want it so much that they literally dream about it. While the gestures don’t always have to be grand (but at least a few of them should be), Pisces wants to be shown that their partner is also wildly in love with them. This is why someone who doesn’t care about romance is Pisces’ absolute relationship deal-breaker.
