Presenting: the best (and, um, not best) part of dating each zodiac sign

No one’s perfect. Not even Leos.

Romantic traits

You gotta take the good with the bad, right?! So while each of the 12 signs of the zodiac has sweet, cute, totally lovable qualities that turn us into human heart-eyes emoji…each Sun sign also, um, has the opposite. Let’s face it: We all have a side that most people can’t stand (yes, even you, Leo), but it’s fine.

Our positive traits are too good to give up! But it’s best to keep things 100, no? Right. That way, we can, you know, work on ourselves in our relationships. So keep reading for the thing your right swipes, your S.O., your ex, that cutie at the bar, etc., etc. loves (and hates) most about dating your Sun sign. It’s called growth.

ARIES

Your impulsive nature makes you super fun to hang out with—we never know what adventure you’ll take us on next. However, your fiery combustible temper has a dark side that can lead to hot-headedness and super-confrontational arguments that start and end within minutes of each other. Not so fun!

TAURUS

All your fixed energy can make you a bit inflexible. Your stubbornness and unwillingness to change is, like, a thing. But we let it slide because you’re the ultimate ride-or-die bestie, as you are a genuine and devoted friend—and an amazing partner to your boo too!

GEMINI

No other sign is as fun as you, Gemmy! This is because you’re always down to party and go on any adventure. While we adore your social skills and openness to life, you do have a tendency to be gossipy and the source of most rumours—just sayin’.

LEO

Let’s start with the positives before you scratch anyone, kitty cat. You’re beyond generous and extremely loyal (see, positive!), which serves as your boo’s fair (even earned) payment for participating and indulging in your theatrics, temper tantrums, and dramatic meltdowns (LOL, snuck that in there, didn’t I?) when you don’t get your way.

VIRGO

We love you, Virgo, but you can be a bit…nitpicky. You’re too particular at times. This can create stress for you and those around you. But before you start to obsessively dissect this astrological drag, you really need to know what others value in you and that’s your patience, virtue, and kindness. Aww!

LIBRA

Libra, you are a lover of love, which serves your romantic heart well because you like to live in a fairy tale. The only issue people have with you is that you are a flirt. And to be real, you set up the next relationship before the one you’re in actually comes to an end.

SCORPIO

You are gifted with amazing psychic abilities, which makes you an awesome mind reader. You use that info to your advantage and manipulate situations and people—which can create low-key drama. Instead of using people’s feelings to your advantage, pay it forward by helping them understand their motives.

SAGITTARIUS

TBH, Sag, your good and bad qualities are the same. You tend to be a know-it-all, which is great for fact-finding (basically, you’re a human Google). But you also can be a know-it-all who doesn’t really know it all, especially in regard to emotions.

CAPRICORN

You already know: Your hardworking efforts and determination can lead to innovation and successes! You are a legit mover and shaker. The only thing that can be a drag is that you can get a little competitive with those who surpass you or are a threat to your position as CEO. Maybe skip bowling, mini-golf, ice skating, literally any sport on a first date.

AQUARIUS

You give your all to humanitarian projects and ideally would like the world to sing in perfect harmony, which is a great attribute. However, you can get a little too fanatical in your beliefs and sound too preachy at times instead of just stating facts. Stop Aquarian-splaining!

PISCES

Your imagination is the most beautiful thing about you. You have the ability to transcend any basic creative endeavour and make a monumental vision. The caveat to such a fluid mind is that you are often lost in your own world and unable to keep up with important mundane tasks. You just keep—wait for it—swimming!
