The dating world is all fun and games, and we can very easily get swept away by the excitement, romance, and adventure of it all. It’s a unique thrill to get all dressed up for a date with someone new, secretly wondering if this guy will be the one and whether or not we can finally stop dating inferior products. We get to the restaurant, meet our guy and everything seems to be going pretty well. If we’re a smart one — who has been there, done that — we’ll hold off final judgment till after we’ve seen more of his personality.
Sometimes we are already in too deep once we start noticing some of his more alarming traits and flaws, though. Obviously, the thing to do then is to reevaluate our standards or dump him before things get too out of hand. Some guys are really good at concealing their flaws, however, so spotting them early is tricky. To help streamline that process here is a nice list of his biggest flaw based on his Zodiac sign. It is recommended that you read with a piece of cake or pint of ice cream nearby in case all his flaws appear and you have to make some drastic decisions.
20Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Inexhaustible Energy Levels
First, let’s have a quick briefing on the Fire signs of the Zodiac calendar. These guys are fiery, passionate, and filled with inexhaustible energy levels that can allow them to party all night, conquer the world, or win every race they enter.
Meanwhile, the rest of us get worn out just watching them.
They are Leo, Sagittarius, and Leo.
According to Horoscope, “Each of the zodiac signs is ruled by an element: water, fire, earth, or air. Each of the elements is characterized by different strengths and tendencies. But how each star sign is affected by its element is unique to that sign.”
19Leo: The Lion Of Summer Roars A Little Too Much About Himself
Born between July 23 and August 22, Leo is a magnetic guy that attracts attention and soaks it up like a sponge. He’s the guy at the party surrounded by half the attendants talking animatedly and smiling all the time. He tends to be creative, passionate, generous, cheerful and warm-hearted with a sense of humor.
However, his dark side lurks around every corner; he is a drama queen. If he isn’t the center of attention then he will throw a temper tantrum. According to Higher Perspective, “For Leo, everything revolves around them. They’ve never met a mirror they don’t love!”
18Sagittarius: The Archer Of The Holidays May Make For A Blue Christmas
Born between November 22 and December 21, Sagittarius fits into the holiday season seamlessly. Rivaling Leo as the social attention hog, Sagittarius can bounce from party to party and leave quite the impression, though not always the best one.
He is known for being generous and idealistic, with a great sense of humor. Likewise, Sagittarius has a love for traveling.
But he is brutally blunt and to the point, where he might tear you to shreds and walk away wondering why you’re upset.
He lacks tact and manners. According to Cafe Astrology, “When dealing with the Sagittarius man, remember that not all who wander are lost. He is a vagabond and an eternal traveler.”
17Aries: The Ram Of Spring May Need You To Spring Him Out Of Jail
Born between March 21 and April 19, Aries is quite the guy. He’s often courageous, enthusiastic, determined, honest and passionate, sweeping you away on his tidal wave of whatever he is deeply interested in at the moment.
Unfortunately, he also has a bit of a dark side and is impulsive. Sure, that might sound fun at first but when his impulsiveness lands him in jail or an affair, it tends to be less fun. According to Speaking Tree, “The ram will talk back to a traffic cop or an armed gangster with equal vigor. He may regret it later, but caution won’t concern him in the heat of the moment.”
16Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): They Like To Keep It “Too” Real
Now that you’ve met the Fire signs and seen them at their worst, time to meet some grounded Earth signs. These are the guys you want for a long-term relationship. They are safe, secure and reliable.
They settle in for the long haul and get the job done well while they are at it.
These guys are Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo. Even Earth has its dark side, though. As Astrostyle notes, “Earth signs keep it real. They are the ‘grounded’ people on the planet, the ones who bring us down to earth and remind us to start with a solid foundation.”
15Capricorn: The Goat Of Winter May Leave You Stranded In The Snow
Born between December 22 and January 19, Capricorn matches forces with the dead of Winter and usually comes out stronger each season. He is known for being responsible, disciplined, self-controlled and having impeccable manners — unlike his predecessor Sagittarius.
But Capricorn has a dark side and he is very controlling. Things have to be done his way or not at all. According to Your Tango, “Time and energy are very valuable to a Capricorn, and if they feel that you aren’t being real with them or come off as someone who is never vulnerable, Capricorn won’t want to waste a minute of attention on you.”
14Taurus: The Bull Of Spring Won’t Let You Go
Born between April 20 and May 20, Taurus arrives at the height of Spring when everything is earth-central and growing like crazy. He is best known for being reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, and stable.
He will put the time, effort and patience in and actually reap the rewards long after everyone else gave up.
Unfortunately, he has his flaws and one of them is that he is very possessive. That sounds like it could be a deal breaker. As Romper puts it, “Sure, your patience and reliability make you a great friend, but those qualities can also make you easily jealous and possessive.”Featured Today
13Virgo: The Ruler Of Summer’s End
Born between August 23 and September 22, Virgo nicely wraps up the mess that Leo left and gets things ready for Libra. Virgo is known for being loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, and practical, as well as for being incredibly shy at first. But once he is settled into a relationship, his flaws come out to play.
The biggest one that will affect your relationship is his perfectionism. Most of his flaws stem from a desire for everything to be absolutely perfect all the time. According to Higher Perspective, “Be careful when you’re hanging out with a Virgo because they tend to be much more judgmental than the other signs.”
12Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): They’re Intuitive But Also Very Mysterious
To cool off after all that Fire and Earth, let’s meet some nice Water signs. These guys are the ones who will “get you” better than the other guys out there because they are so in tune with their own emotions and feelings.
Clearly expressing them might take a little work though, but they’re usually worth it.
They balance out the Fire signs quite nicely. These guys are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. According to Astrostyle, “Intuitive, emotional and ultra-sensitive, water signs can be as mysterious as the ocean itself. Like water, they can be refreshing, or they can drown you in their depths.”
11Cancer: The Crab Of Summer Might Snap Back
Born between June 21 and July 22, Cancer wraps up Spring and launches into Summer with enthusiasm and excitement — as long as he can do so safely and preferably from the comforts of home. He is known for being loyal, tenacious, sympathetic, enthusiastic, persuasive and highly imaginative.
He likes traditions, families and being home with the people he loves, but he is also moody and very sensitive to the point where he is easily offended. This can get annoying very quickly after a while and takes all the fun out of the event. As Romper puts it, “To describe Cancers as moody is an understatement.”
10Scorpio: The Scorpion Of Autumn Can Be Venomous
Scorpio is born between October 23 and November 21, right in the middle of Autumn where he likes to be. Scorpio is best known for being innovative, reliable, brave, and passionate, and one of those rare true friends that stick with you through thick and thin for years.
He is an excellent leader but his dark side leaves some people fleeing.
His temper is legendary and can spiral into violence easily over the littlest things. As Higher Perspective puts it, “This sign has a temper of epic proportions and when something gets under their skin, they will overreact with a fury unlike any other.”
9Pisces: The Fish Of Winter’s End Does What He Wants
Born between February 19 and March 20, Pisces is nestled right in when Winter ends and Spring starts to arrive with lots of rain and mud everywhere. Pisces is best known for being gentle, wise, compassionate, artistic, intuitive and musical. There is always more to Pisces than meets the eye, but unfortunately, this includes his darker side.
Due to his inability to make decisions and his tendency be inconsistent, Pisces is something of a commitment-phobe and will flee if he doesn’t like how reality is shaping things around him. According to Your Tango, “He does care about what others think of him so his behavior or actions may change frequently.”
8Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): They Will All Of A Sudden Stop Pleasing Others
Finally, the last three signs and their element is Air. These guys are the communicators of the Zodiac calendar and will talk a mile a minute if allowed to. This is a strength they often employ in their careers, such as journalists or lecturers.
Any form of communication is fair game for them, though each will shine brightest in their own field.
These guys are Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini. According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, “Their main goal in life is often just to stop pleasing others and worrying about their opinions, so they can be able to follow their brightest and most liberating ideas.”
7Libra: The Balance Of Autumn Will Constantly Be In Flux
Born between September 23 and October 22, Libra delights in the height of Autumn with all the changing colors, weather, and fashion. He is best known for being cooperative, gracious, fair-minded, diplomatic, social and non-confrontational. He seeks balance in every area of his life, which can often backfire a bit on him — despite his best intentions. This often leaves his biggest flaw of being inconsistent out in the open for all to see.
According to Higher Perspective, “Libras take forever to make a decision because they have to weigh every possible option. They will do anything to keep the peace to the extent where they abandon their own values.”
6Aquarius: The Water Bearer Of Mid-Winter Wants Deep Conversation Only
Born between January 20 and February 18, Aquarius fits nicely between Capricorn’s harshness and Pisces’ indecisiveness. He is best known for being progressive, original, independent, humanitarian and very intellectual to the point where his studies can engulf him completely.
Unfortunately, despite his interesting conversation skills, he is prone to being judgmental and will drop you if he loses interest in you.
He likely doesn’t mean to lose interest but he is wired that way.
According to Your Tango, “If you can’t speak on serious topics and have a deep conversation, you’ll come off as superficial and uninteresting to Aquarius and they’ll probably ignore what you have to say.”
5Gemini: The Twins Of Spring’s End Flits And Flutters
Born between May 21 and June 20, Gemini is a dual personality wrapped in one body and thus life with him will always be interesting. He is best known for being gentle, affectionate, curious, adaptable, and able to learn quickly and exchange ideas at a rapid rate. He is incredibly flexible and able to roll with last minute changes to plans better than other signs.
Due to this dual nature, however, Gemini is very unreliable. He might show up at your cousin’s wedding, but he might not — and that can strain a relationship. According to Speaking Tree, “He may be one place today and somewhere else tomorrow. Suddenly, too.”
And here are four bonus flaws to watch out for.
4Impatient Aries Always Knows Best
So you’ve met Aries and know that he is impulsive, but some of his other flaws deserve a second look in case you’re still serious about him. There is just something that may still seem a little off. Because he likes to lead and dive into stuff on a whim, he is often very impatient and his impatience can lead to a very short-temper.
He also fights childishly sometimes.
As Higher Perspective puts it, “Aries is the most impulsive and impatient of the zodiac signs. They also tend to be immature. Also, if an idea isn’t theirs, they don’t agree with it.”
3Unforgiving Scorpio Won’t Give Up The Grudge
Aside from being possessive, Scorpio has other dark flaws like jealousy and an intensity that borders on obsession most of the time. If one has earned his wrath, once the initial blow-up has passed he will scheme and plot his revenge and never forgive you — which makes him a dangerous enemy. Even if he never acts on his schemes.
As Speaking Tree puts it, “A scorpion is incapable of forgiving and forgetting. The deadly nocturnal scorpion will first sting, then plan destruction, then sting again. He’s not content with merely evening the score. He must totally destroy the enemy, or at least top him.”
2Delusional Libra Is Incessantly Insecure
We know that Libra struggles to make decisions and stay consistent in life, which is always at odds with their desire to find balance and just ditch everyone and do their own thing.
They care too much about what other people think, which can cripple them after a while.
They also struggle to stay rooted in reality, staying loyal to toxic people long after they should’ve cut ties. As Higher Perspective puts it, “Libras are fascinated with beauty and will primp for hours before being ready to go out. They panic at the thought of commitment and they aren’t very good at keeping promises.”
1Obsessive Taurus Wants What They Want
Aside from being massively stubborn and possessive, Taurus has a few other flaws that can creep in when we least expect them. He will go through bouts of laziness and he is very uncompromising which spells disaster in the long-term scheme of things.
Due to his possessive nature, he can easily drop into obsession — spending hours engrossed in his new look, interest or person. As Speaking Tree puts it, “Taurus won’t budge an inch. Once his mind is set, he folds his arms calmly and digs in his heels. He can be quite a grumpy grouch when he’s tired and out of sorts.”
