16 Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): They Tend To Have Big Egos
Out of all of the elements in the zodiac, fire is the only one with the ability to sparkle on its own. Fire represents energy itself so, therefore, people who have fire signs are said to be the most energetic and robust. These are the types that love to seize the day and look at everything with optimism. However, these signs also need a lot of praise because they place a high value on their egos and need to be told how great they are. People love them because of their upbeat personalities, but they can also be high maintenance because they like to be the center of attention. They need to feel like they are important and that people think highly of them. When they don’t feel that, there tends to be drama.
15 Aries: It’s All About “Me, Me, Me”
Aries women are headstrong and vivacious at the same time. This excites a lot of guys and makes them think that this girl is a complete firecracker. That is until they start to have a real conversation about them in order to get to know them. Since Aries people have a strong sense of self, they usually only want to talk, well…about themselves. Rather than asking people questions and trying to get some information about their life, Aries ladies want to make it all about themselves. It is not that they are trying to be obnoxious, but because they are so focused on their personal interests. Try asking him some questions about his life and act like you are interested in him as a person. You will come off as self-absorbed and full of yourself if you only talk about you.
14 Leo: Constantly Seeking The Spotlight Could Leave People In The Dark
Leo ladies are the life of the party and like it when people congregate around them. It is hard to pull away a Leo in a crowd because they are too busy mixing it up with as many as possible. They are full of social charm and people like to be around them which is what makes Leos so special. It can frustrate guys when they feel like they will never get any one-on-one time with you because you want all eyes on you. Out of all the signs, Leos need the most praise and to be told that they are great. If that wanes, they will seek attention elsewhere. You are the first in line for karaoke but sometimes the last to be asked out because guys just don’t want to deal with the competition.
13 Sagittarius: Some Words May Cut Like A Knife
Sagittarians don’t really have a filter when it comes to what they think and what they say. They are so incredibly blunt that their words often hurt people and they don’t realize that they are smashing someone’s feelings to smithereens. It is best for a Sag lady to watch what she says and make sure that she isn’t going to offend someone in the process. On the other hand, if you can dish it then you should be able to take it. If a guy has a thick skin, he could possibly see past your bluntness and tolerate it, get ready for him to give it right back to you. Some guys are just a little put off if a girl acts too sassy.
12 Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Might Want To Reconsider The Materialistic Mindset
Earth signs live in the physical world and they like to try to materialize their desires into reality. These can make for ambitious and resourceful people, but sometimes they get too wrapped up in things and not enough with the people in their lives. They work hard and put their money where their mouth is. Men can find this intimidating and even off-putting if he is seeing a girl who needs material things to make her happy. This can make him feel inadequate or just look at you as if you were shallow. They can get stuck in their own ways and have rigid habits that are hard to break once it becomes routine. Earth signs can also be stingy and unwilling to compromise out of their comfort zone.
11 Taurus: You Don’t Always Take Care Of Yourself As Much As You Should
Taurus women can be lazy and stubborn. You love to have your Netflix and chill time just lounging around and doing nothing. A big focus for this sign is comfort. This is alright until it gets to the point where you just stop caring and start letting yourself go. No guy wants to date a slob. Taurus women actually look naturally beautiful without having to wear too much makeup. When you want to, you clean up nice but you have to care enough to put a little effort into it. Taurus women can have a hard time maintaining a guy’s interest if he is the type that likes to be out and about. So many born under this sign don’t like to leave the house because they would rather just do a lot of nothing than go out and live life.
10 Virgo: A Finicky And Neurotic Perspective Isn’t Always Best
Virgo women are perfectionists and like to focus on the little details rather than looking at the whole picture. If your man isn’t doing something that you want him to do, you have no problem telling about it so much to the point of nagging. Those born under this sign can be high strung and become wiggy when things are not going exactly as planned. Guys hate it when their girlfriends are all up in their business making them feel like they just can’t do anything right. You can be overly critical and judgmental when someone’s views or what they are wearing just doesn’t make any sense to you. People love you because you are practical but sometimes, there simply isn’t a cut and dry, logical answer to everything.
9 Capricorn: Caring Only About Status Should Be Avoided
The sign of Capricorn symbolizes the goat who is always trying to climb the highest mountain, no matter what obstacles are in the way. They want the best out of life and they want to reap the rewards that they have worked so hard for. Capricorns are the most likely to date a man who is powerful or have an affair with their boss in order to further their career. These women can possibly get a reputation for being gold diggers. Guys might feel like they are either A) being used by you or B) that they are simply just not good enough to date you. As strong and ambitious as you are, sometimes you need to get off of your high horse and not come off as so pretentious.
8 Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Tend To Enjoy Instigating Drama
Air signs are the most flexible element in the entire zodiac. When you think about how air works, it can float around and blend in anywhere. It can evaporate and detach easily from place to place. Those born under this element love to talk and engage in social activities. They tend to be involved in social groups and communities where they can roam free and engage in as much conversation as possible. This could lead them to gossip and talk negatively about others. They have a way of pushing people’s buttons just to see what kind of reaction that they can get out of them. Though you rarely see an air sign in the middle of a fight, you can certainly find out who started the drama in the first place. If the guy you are dating catches on to that, they will get turned off.
7 Gemini: Pay Attention To Not Talking Over Him (And Actually Listening When It’s Your Turn)
Geminis are engaging and adorable to talk to. They always have something witty and thought-provoking to say. This is how guys are initially attracted to you. You are approachable and easy to talk to. Then when they keep talking to you, they soon realize that they can never get a word in because you talk over them. Talking to a Gemini can be like watching someone flip channels through a TV so rapidly, that you don’t even know what is going on. Geminis can jump from subject to subject since their minds move so fast, making them almost impossible to keep up with. This can be frustrating because a guy might feel like you are just going to twist his words against him or just not actually listen to what he has to say.
6 Libra: Displaying More Loyalty Should Be A Priority
You can always spot a Libra because they have that gleam in their eye and that million dollar smile. You love to ask people questions about themselves and it feels good talking to you. Sometimes you feed off that attention so much that you start to flirt with people at inappropriate times and places. If you are dating a guy and meeting his good-looking best friend for the first time, you are liable to flirt with him right in front of bae. That doesn’t make him feel too good about you and the relationship in general. He might be thinking, “is she is willing to do this around me, then I don’t even want to know what she will do when she is not around me.”
5 Aquarius: Watch Out For Condescending Behaviors
Aquarians are educated and know how to delve into subjects that stimulate intellectual conversation. What everyone loves about you guys is that you treat everyone the same and you don’t really care about status. However, some Aquarians have a tendency to believe that they are smarter than everyone else. If a guy is trying to talk to you about something that he is curious about, you have no problem telling him how little he knows about that subject and how much you do. Just remember that no guy likes to be talked down to, especially by a potential girlfriend. Let him have his opinions and respect the fact that just because they are not the same as yours, doesn’t make them inferior. He is an intelligent human being too.
4 Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Sometimes, Emotions Cloud Their Judgement
Water signs are intuitive and can read people based on body language and “vibes” that they give out. They can also be too sensitive or emotional when something upsets them. Even if they have every right to be upset about something, water signs don’t always react in the most rational way. This is because they are ruled by their emotions and instinct rather than their logic. It is not to say that they don’t have logic at all, it’s just that when they get emotional, their rational judgment becomes too flooded. To a potential boyfriend, it would seem like you are overreacting or acting too distant for no reason. This is usually when he does something to make you mad and it goes unmentioned.
3 Cancer: Getting Overly Affectionate Too Soon Could Lead To Problems
Cancer women are caring and nurturing when they are in a relationship. At first, this makes your guy feel special and adored by you. After a while, it can come off as needy and insecure. Cancers like to have all the time of their partners and can have a hard time giving their guy space. A guy telling you that he needs some alone time can spark some insecurity and can send you into mood swings. You might jump to conclusions that he doesn’t really like you enough or that he is on the prowl for someone else. In reality, he is probably just running some errands or going to the gym. Your need for comfort and your partner’s presence at all times can be so overwhelming at times to the point where he feels smothered.
2 Scorpio: You Don’t Get Mad, You Get Even
Scorpio women like to suppress their feelings and emotion. They don’t like giving people the satisfaction of knowing that they got under their skin. Nothing drives a Scorpio crazier than when someone knows that they are making them mad and starts taunting them for it. Rather than showing their temper or having an angry outburst, they would rather just plot revenge. Getting even makes them feel satisfied but it is toxic in a relationship. You need to be more verbal about what is on your mind rather than just dropping passive-aggressive hints and hoping that he just eventually figures it out. He will be able to tell that you are not happy with him by the way that you treat him and the fact that you don’t look like you are having a good time.
1 Pisces: Playing The Victim Doesn’t Get Anyone Anywhere
Pisces people are afraid of confrontation or looking the like the bad person. They have a way of making people feel guilty when they haven’t even done anything wrong in the first place. Pisces women can get a kick out of everyone else seeing how horribly your boyfriend is treating you and seeing you as the victim. In reality, your boyfriend is just doing something that you don’t approve of for some silly reason so that must make him the bad guy. People born under this sign are extremely sensitive and their reactions to situations can make them seem like they are self-pitying. Learn how to solve your own problems rather than expecting your man to fix everything for you. Otherwise, you are going to be the cause of a lot of frustration.
