When it comes to navigating the dating pool, there’s a lot to consider. In addition to physical and emotional compatibility, sometimes astrological signs can play a role. While there’s more to relationships than just the zodiac, looking at the stars can tell you more about you and your partners — as well as the people you should avoid completely. And a lot of it comes down to personal preference. Read on to discover the six signs I won’t date as an astrologer.

Although they thrive on close partnerships, Libras need a lot of space in a relationship. Libras thrive when they don’t feel repressed by their partner, which means clingy behavior is an instant disconnect. They prioritize balance and harmonious relationships, which can lead to passive-aggressive behavior to the detriment of direct communication. Libras are also not the type to shower their partner with endless words of affirmation or send sentimental good morning messages. Therefore, more sensitive signs will have a harder time getting a Libra to open up about their emotions.
Aries are used to having to take charge of every aspect of everyday life. This gives them a natural confidence and arrogance in relationships. Everything is competition for Aries, including dating. Anything you can do, they can do better. They often give their romantic partners bold displays of affection, extravagant gifts, and exaggerated charisma. However, Aries expects the same level of adoration from their partner (without you actually showing them).

Cancers are known as one of the most caring and empathetic signs of the zodiac. When a Cancer falls in love, they strive to create a comfortable relationship. They tend to naturally fall into the caretaker and best friend role. However, their sweet disposition doesn’t come without a darker side: Cancers also have a reputation for being moody and vindictive. If a Cancer feels you aren’t appreciating them, they can freeze you. While they are some of the most loyal and supportive people around, they are not someone you want on your bad side if the relationship goes awry.
Scorpios are very reserved on the first date. It takes months or even years of trust building to learn the truth about what makes a Scorpio tick. They keep a small circle of people, but these relationships tend to be very personal and intense. However, Scorpios have a secret side to their personality that few people get to see. They are reputed to be the “love them and leave them” sign of the zodiac. And if you’re not good at understanding their more subtle communication style, they can seem especially reserved and moody.

Sagittarius is known for being super social and friendly with everyone they meet. This can make it difficult to decipher your flirting style. Fueled by their spontaneous fire energy, Sagittarius values their freedom. In relationships, things can start out hot, but they can quickly cool down if you can’t keep their attention. If the routine of romance gets too boring for a Sagittarius, he’ll start looking towards the next big adventure.
Taurus is secretly one of the most romantic signs in the zodiac, but that doesn’t mean getting them down the aisle is an easy trick. This sign is stubborn and known for taking their sweet time with things. This means that while they are very stable and caring partners, you will have a hard time convincing them to do anything they don’t want to do. It also means getting an apology from them is next to impossible. And of all the zodiac signs, they are among the most jealous and possessive when in a relationship. It’s a “no” for me.
