(March 21st – April 19th)
You’re incredibly straightforward and bold, which is a good thing — well, most of the time. But you also have a tendency to push a little too hard for what you want, even if it’s something your partner isn’t exactly on the same page about. You want things your way, which can sometimes leave your significant other unhappy or inconvenienced. Next time you’re inclined to push your partner into something and it’s met with resistance, take a step back and ask them what theywant — and, you know, actually listen. Relationships are about compromise. It’s important you work on finding the middle ground, which will ultimately lead to a happier relationship.
(April 20th – May 20th)
You’re a committed person, which is great for partners who seek some sort of stability. Unfortunately, you’re as stubborn as the bull that denotes you. You like predictability and routine, which can be nice for a while, but it’s going to become incredibly difficult when your partner is looking to compromise and you absolutely refuse to — and it probably leads to more conflict than you realize. Sorry Taurus, it can’t always be your way. Instead of being the unmovable boulder that you are, try being a little more flexible with your significant other the next time you fight over something, even if it makes you uncomfortable. Trust me, your partner will appreciate the change, and you’ll appreciate that they’re happy.
(May 21st – June 20th)
You’re one of the friendliest signs of the zodiac, which comes at no surprise — you love communicating and meeting new people. But unfortunately for your partner, your flirtiness is honestly just part of your personality, and it shows with each new person you connect with. If you’re dating someone who’s prone to even a little bit of jealousy, keep in mind that they might be upset over the connections you make — and if they are, it’s mostly because they’re hurt, not because they want to control you. No one’s telling you to stop being friends with anyone, but next time you want to start up a flirty conversation with your barista, consider how your partner would feel about it. It may seem harmless, but just that one small change may smooth things out in your relationship almost immediately.
(June 21st – July 22nd)
Ever since you were little, you dreamed of the perfect person to build a home and life with. You want a partnership, not a hook up, and you won’t settle for anything less. Your one downfall, however, is that once you start dating someone, you rush headlong into commitment without regard for any of the other stages of dating. Do you know how incredibly daunting that can be for other signs, even when they really do like you? Slow down, little crab. I know you’re looking for your forever person to spend your life with, but enjoy dating for what it is without planning your entire wedding by the fifth date. Worry less about the future and more about the now; instead of looking three years down the road, start with three weeks. It’ll put a lot less pressure on the relationship, which will give your partner the time to catch up with you so that you finally make it to the same page.
