What happens when you’re not getting what you want in a relationship?
No one wakes up one day deciding to be a cheater. Everyone wants their relationship to be perfect; no one willingly hopes that the person they’re dating is going to end up cheating on them or breaking their heart.
But unfortunately, perfection isn’t easy to find in a relationship and it doesn’t matter how compatible your zodiac signs are, if you’re soulmates, or if you’ve never been a cheater before in the past your entire life. There’s a good chance that you’re going to have to work hard to find that one person that makes you feel happy and loved unconditionally.
Until then, it’s important to both be positive about the future of your relationship with your partner and to know that relationships need constant work for them to last.
Trust me, it’s so much better to be honest and open all the time rather than just sometimes, even if you’re the type of horoscope sign who likes to keep thoughts and feelings to yourself. There’s a difference between being pleasantly surprised when you learn something new about your partner and that feeling of shock when you realize you don’t know who they really are after all.
When you’re not getting what you need in a relationship — and when you’re not giving what you need to, too — it can put a serious strain on you and your partner.
So much so that you might start thinking about what it would be like if you were single again… or dating someone else. People don’t usually actively seek to cheat on their partner, but cheating does happen. We all have that one thing we always look for in a relationship, based on astrology, and when we’re not getting it, we want to find someone who will give us what we want.
Sometimes that can mean cheating when it should mean leaving the relationship to really figure out what else you want and work on yourself. Say you’re in a relationship that has a lot of romance and physical affection, but when you want to talk about your feelings and just vent, your partner doesn’t want to communicate with you.
They might try to shrug off prompts from you to just hang out and talk with each other or he might try to cheer you up with that romance, but that just isn’t what you’re looking for — your zodiac sign thrives on communication and emotional connections.
This lack of understanding and someone you can count on to listen might make you want to look for someone else outside of your relationship to have an affair with that you can really talk to; someone who will actually listen to you.
Even subconsciously, you could be putting yourself in a position to cheat.
But if you’re not getting everything you need in your current relationship, cheating can feel like giving yourself the chance to have a really good relationship with someone new.
I don’t condone cheating, though (no one should). If you’re really unhappy enough to consider cheating on your partner, don’t you think it’s better to end the relationship and then find someone new?
And yet, each zodiac sign can be put in a position to cheat because they have that one thing they desperately need in a relationship to be happy and satisfied.
Keep reading to find out what drives your zodiac sign to cheat, based on astrology, by zodiac sign.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you are always looking for that thrill in life and just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean you haven’t thought about the thrill of cheating. This doesn’t mean you automatically go out and cheat on your partner, but when things start to feel a little eh, you can’t help but wonder if there’s someone else out there who can rev your engine.
The thing most likely to drive you to cheat is if that eh feeling stays for longer than a day. It seems harsh, but you need that constant excitement that you feel should come with a relationship.
Your horoscope might have a fiery passion for the one you’re with, but you also have needs that need to be met. If your partner isn’t meeting those needs, you’re not above finding someone who will. For this reason, you’re one of the zodiac signs most likely to cheat on their partner.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’re a crazy faithful zodiac sign who only wants true love in your relationship – actually, every relationship. You’re the kind of person who gets so smitten with your partner right away that every new relationship can end up feeling like The One. You definitely put your all into your relationship and you also expect your partner to do the same.
You desperately need a relationship where love and romance run deep. If the love you’re giving to your partner is not being received, or if you feel like you’re being neglected at all, you might be driven to cheat.
You don’t feel like you’re asking for too much, but you also hate being the kind of person who has to talk about the not-so-great things in your relationship. So, for you, it’s sometimes easier to go find that deep love you’re craving instead of bringing up the hard conversations you need to have with your partner.
