Deal breakers differ from person to person. While someone may see one characteristic as an absolute deal breaker, someone else may not. As with many things, our respective zodiac signs might have something to do with what we see as a major relationship no-no. Here’s your biggest relationship deal breaker, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Clinginess. You can’t stand a clingy or needy partner because you’re extremely independent and you like to have your own life outside of your relationship. You also like to have your space and your freedom and will not tolerate being with someone who suffocates you even if they’re suffocating you with love.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Disrespect. You have too much pride and extremely high standards so anyone who disrespects you, will be kicked out of your life. No matter how much you love the person, you will never look at them the same way if they ever disrespected you, even jokingly.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Aloofness. You can’t be with someone who is anti-social because you thrive on your active social life and it is pretty much your everyday life. You have a lot of friends and acquaintances and you need a partner who is able to put up with this kind of social pressure. Someone who is unfriendly or quiet will not match your outgoing and gregarious personality.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Privacy. You can’t be with someone who is private or reserved and holds things from you, as an emotional and intuitive sign, you want to be able to talk to your partner and help them out if they’re going through a tough time and you don’t want them to keep any secrets from you. Someone who doesn’t open up to you will not be able to give you the strong emotional connection you desire.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Shyness. You’re the center of attention and even though you can’t be with someone who steals that attention from you, you can’t be with someone who doesn’t at least try either. You’re all about confidence and self-assurance and you want a partner who can challenge you in some way. If you’re with someone who is shy or reserved, you will feel like there is no excitement or fire in the relationship, as opposed to someone who is a little bit more daring.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Unambition. You’re all about your career, your success and the next best thing. You want a partner who is on the same page and gets your goals and dreams but also has their own. Having a passive or unambitious partner will always make you feel like something major is lacking in your connection and your daily conversations because that’s mainly what you like to talk about.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Negativity. You’re a positive person and you always think that tomorrow is a better day. That’s why you can’t stand a negative partner or someone who is dramatic. You like to be surrounded by good vibes and good energy and being with someone who drains you is out of the question for you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Lying. You can accept all your partner’s flaws except for lying. Lying is a deal breaker for you and probably the fastest way to lose you — even if it was just a white lie. You appreciate honesty and transparency and you will never forgive your partner if they lied to you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Laziness. You can’t be with a lazy partner, you’re always on the go and looking for the next extreme adventure or the next country you want to visit, if your partner doesn’t keep up with you, you will probably still do all these things without him/her. So it’s better for you to find someone just as energetic to complement your fast-paced lifestyle.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Irresponsibility. You can’t be with someone who doesn’t know how to be responsible or someone who doesn’t know what they want. You know what you want and you’re always getting it and you want someone who can take care of you, because you’re always taking care of everyone else. That’s why an irresponsible partner will turn you off because you will always feel like you’re the one who is taking care of both of you.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Practicality. How can you talk about your eccentric ideas and dreams when you have a realistic partner? You’re unconventional, rebellious and somewhat bizarre and you can’t be with someone pragmatic or someone who doesn’t encourage your creative streak. You need someone who can dream with you and support your wildest dreams even if they don’t understand them.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Insensitivity. You’re very sensitive and emotional even if you try to show otherwise. Being with someone who is inconsiderate or doesn’t care about your feelings is a good enough reason for you to walk away. You can’t be with someone selfish, you need someone who is giving and has a big heart.
