How Are You Single vs Taken According To Your Zodiac Sign

Ever feel like your friends get a personality transplant when they get into a relationship? Sorry, amigo, but the same thing happens to you, too. Being single, you can do what you want, when you want. Though you don’t completely alter who you are as a person when you’re all loved-up, there are some things that need to be changed when you want to fit into another person’s life. After all, every relationship is about compromise, right?

Read on to find out what the stars say about the differences between your single and taken selves!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @fabiolagambardella

Single: Aries, you’re one independent, dynamic soul. You radiate passion even when you’re not in a relationship. You can very easily attract friends, and potential romantic prospects. You get fired up about anything and everything: climate change, fashion, what you had for breakfast … the list goes on. Just be careful, since your attitude can sometimes be a little too over the top.

Instagram: @curly_little_lena_

Taken: You need your relationships to not feel like relationships. Your way of flirting with your partner in crime is by being mean to them – verbal sparring and teasing is your thing. As far as you’re concerned, burdens, duties, and routine signal the death of a relationship.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @segmento_country

Single: Unfortunately, Taurus, being single isn’t really for you. Even when you’re alone, you don’t like feeling lonely. To compensate, you surround yourself with friends, and hunt for new adventures. Sometimes, though, you have a habit of spreading yourself too thin.

Instagram: @__jazzyfit

Taken: You’re hella romantic, Taurus! Your relationships involve a lot of home cooked meals, massages, candles, and some sexy lingerie. You know there’s no point being in love unless you can show your sensual self. You’re the type to give your all in a relationship, which means that you can become a bit obsessive at times.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @_artwins_

Single: A single Gemini is one hell of a social butterfly. You have so much time to do whatever you want, so why not spend it talking the ear off of somebody else? To be honest, because you are so independent, it can be a relief for you to not be weighed down by a relationship.

Instagram: @beckygworldwide

Taken: You definitely wear the pants in a relationship. This is mostly because you juggle lots of projects at once, so your partner has to be okay with letting you be in charge of your social calendar. So long as they remember that intellectual discussions are your kind of turn-on, you’ll be fine.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @wuchunyi0214

Single: With your ability to adapt, Cancer, you’re surprisingly good at being single. You make a fantastic, reliable friend. In fact, you’re the type of person who makes friends for life. But, be careful when you party, Cancer! That’s when you’ll dwell on all of your insecurities about being single.

Instagram: @beckyg.baby

Taken: Cancer, you are simultaneously the best, and the worst, person to be in a relationship with. You’re loyal and sensitive, which is fabulous when you commit. But, sometimes, this can turn into a real overly-emotional attitude! Your neediness may be the thing that kills your relationships.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @picturesnpixels

Single: Single time is fiesta time for a Leo. Your outgoing and independent personality is party animal material. If you’re single, then you’re more likely to invest time into the drama of all of your friendships. And if there’s no drama happening, then clearly it’s your job to create some.

Instagram: @centrartcityurban

Taken: Are you even in a relationship unless it’s Facebook official, and you have your own hashtag? Leo, you are no wallflower in a relationship. You need to be with someone who understands that the limelight is still yours, even though there’s two of you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @sven.fiedler.art

Single: Virgo, did someone mention workaholic? Being single means throwing yourself headfirst into your work life, and getting things done. And you’re good at it, too. So much so, that you might get a little stressed from the workload. We mentioned work, right? Right.

Instagram: @centrartcityurban

Taken: Your relationships turn your projects from work-related to relationship-related, Virgo. Even if everything is going swimmingly, you’re still prone to worrying about the tiny little details of your relationship. Because maybe that green sweater they wore last night was sending some subliminal message to you. If only you could figure it out …

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @trellis_weddingware

Single: Libra, you know that being single is about getting in touch with your zen side. You’re the type to invest in a new all-green diet, an aquatic yoga routine, and take up language lessons. Being single is about being positive, discovering a new you, and having a proper work-life balance. Or, so you’ve been told.

Instagram: @etna_backtobasics

Taken: You’re guilty of being a bit of a flirt when you’re in a relationship. And, not just flirting with your partner, but with everyone. After all, no-one takes you seriously if you’re already in a relationship, right?

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @hashtaginstandreas

Single: You can be an introvert even at the best of times, Scorpio. When you’re single, you prefer to be alone. This can be a good time for you to get in touch with your dreams and ambition, and really excel with your job.

Instagram: @11.17s

Taken: Scorpio, relationships are about the sex for you. If you’re getting along, then it’s time for a good bonk. You’ve just had a fight? Better resort to make-up sex. Or angry sex. The point is, you can’t keep your hands off your partner.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @heydeezee

Single: With your easygoing nature, Sagittarius, you take being single in your stride. You’re not worried about being alone, and neither are you scared about being surrounded by people. To be honest, the only thing you really worry about is whether you’re having a good time.

Instagram: @clushbabe

Taken: One of the biggest benefits you get from being in a relationship is having someone who’ll make sure you arrive at events on time. Seriously! You’re forever running late, Sagittarius.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @jaffar__sathick

Single: The single life for you, Capricorn, means devoting your time to others. You’re super helpful, and you always do your best to make a sad friend feel better. But, since you’re one stoic person, you don’t expect others to return the favor.

Instagram: @square_peg_images

Taken: Funnily enough, you treat your romantic relationships the same way as what you treat your friendships! You prefer to take things slowly, Capricorn, so it may be a while before a new partner gets to know the real you. But, slow and steady wins the race, so maybe you’ve got a winning formula on your hands.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @bethcassini

Single: With your fierce sense of independence, Aquarius, you don’t really care if you’re single or taken. Being the sign of groups and friends, you prefer to focus on making friends that fill up your cup. For you, the most important question of all is whether you’re feeling creatively and intellectually fulfilled.

Instagram: @msalexsky

Taken: If you’re in a relationship, then your loved one better know sooner rather than later that you’re much like a household cat. You need your alone time, and plenty of it. But, you also expect to be showered with affection when you want it. Yup, you can be a tricky one to love, Aquarius.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @mike_bawue_photography

Single: You’re one social star sign, Pisces, since you find being around other people helps keep your life simpler, and more balanced. You’re definitely in your comfort zone when you’re surrounded by other people, so being single for you can be challenging.

Instagram: @kimyfitness

Taken: Pisces, you’re at your best when you’re in a relationship. You’re a generous, soulful and romantic person. Plus, you’re very supportive of your partners. Make sure you’re with someone who truly appreciates you, Pisces, because your giving nature makes it easy for people to take advantage of your goodness.

Are you guilty of doing some of these things when you’re single? Or maybe you’ve seen some of this behavior from your friends when they’re taken. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page by clicking the icon at the top of the page!

From Taurus To Cancer, These Are The Most Compatible Signs With Virgo

Who are we kidding: one of the major reasons all of us check our horoscope is to find out what the future has in store for us when it comes to love and lust. After all, you know that if you’re really meant to be together, then it’ll be written in the stars. 

So Virgo, in honor of your birthday, we’ve put together a quick guide to point you in the direction of your soulmate.

Virgo with an Aries (March 21 – April 19) creates an explosively fiery passion.

Instagram / @pavingsunrays

Part of what attracts you to Aries is the fact that they do everything with so much passion. You can’t help but be attracted to the fire in their soul. But Virgo, you can only function on their level for so long until you burn out. For you, a relationship with Aries takes work.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) is a matchmaker’s pick!

Instagram / @the.bridal.visions

Taurus are known for being super grounded and down to earth, and that’s exactly the kind of person you need in your life, Virgo. Your drive for perfectionism means that your Taurus can put things into perspective for you – they’re the yin to your yang, so to speak.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Gemini (May 21 – June 20) sees opposites attract.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

If one of your brutally honest friends had to describe you, Virgo, they’d say you’re a bit of a square. And, they wouldn’t exactly be wrong. That’s why Gemini can get on your nerves a bit … they’ve always got their heads up in the clouds when you’re trying to be realistic!

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Cancer (June 21 – July 22) means both love and lust.

Instagram / @mannyg520

While on the surface it would seem like Cancer is a bit too emotional for you, Virgo, it turns out that they’re exactly the sort of person you need in your life – and they need you, too. Your pragmatism in the face of their emotional swings is what keeps them sane. And they remind you to stay in touch with your softer side. So you know what this means? You guys have fabulous, fulfilling sex. Noice.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Leo (July 23 – August 22) is one hell of a rollercoaster!

Instagram / @happy_healthy_fitcouple

Leo can definitely test your patience, Virgo. You’re a quiet achiever, whereas Leo likes to get all of the attention, wherever they can get it. Leo’s got a massive ego that needs stroking … and you’re more critical. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much the perfect environment for lots of silly bickering. Then again, every couple has those moments, right?

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Virgo (August 23 – September 22) asks the question: can you ever have too much of a good thing?

Instagram / @miles.and.smiles

You’d think that being with someone who functions on the same vibe as you would be a match made in heaven. But, that’s only true to a certain extent. Given that the two of you are perfectionists and workaholics, you’d make a great power couple … that has almost zero romantic and sexual chemistry. If you want it to work, you’ve gotta work at it, Virgo.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Libra (September 23 – October 22) meshes realism with idealism.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

When people think Libra, they think social butterfly. When people think Virgo, they think shy. Virgo, you’re a realist, whereas Libras are an idealist. They say that opposites attract, but in your case, you’d probably find that the differences between you and Libra would eventually drag you away from each other. The both of you would really have to put in an effort to find your way back.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) sees things heat up in the bedroom.

Instagram / @smperez

While Scorpio and Virgo can build a really secure and safe relationship, you kids can come unstuck when it comes to your attitudes towards the bedroom. Scorpio tends to be all about the real carnal side of the beast with two backs, whereas Virgo is more about connecting emotionally through sex.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) mixes fun and stability.

Instagram / @littledolewhips

It’s nice when you meet someone who’s as adaptable as you are. But in the case of Sagittarius, Virgo, you might find that they’re a little too spontaneous for your liking. That being said, they might get you to loosen up a little, which is never a bad thing in your case!

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) is a match made in heaven!

Instagram / @bonitachinitalatina

Capricorn’s brand of perfectionism fits pretty well with your brand of perfectionism, Virgo. The difference is that you strive for better because you want to do good, whereas Capricorn wants to be good – at everything they do. And that makes you good together!

Compatibility: High

Virgo with an Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) is a hella smart match.

Instagram / @brazilcupid

Because both you and Aquarius are intellectual sorts, you’d find that you’d have what Alanis Morissette called, “intellectual intercourse.” But since the pair of you have such different approaches to life, you’d probably find it a lot easier to work on a friendship together, rather than a real steamy, romantic relationship.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Pisces (February 19 – March 20) means sweetness in spades.

Instagram / @yamelyhr

There’s no denying it, there’s definitely an attraction between you two. You’re both devoted, thoughtful and detail-oriented souls – but where Pisces is a dreamer, you’re much more realistic. If you’re both able to navigate your differences, then there’s no stopping you! Chances are, though, you’d find that your relationship will always be an ongoing project.

Compatibility: Medium

Latinas Are Sharing Their Most Ridiculous Dating Horror Stories And Someone Hold My Drink, I’m Choking

Fierce

Latinas Are Sharing Their Most Ridiculous Dating Horror Stories And Someone Hold My Drink, I’m Choking

Dating is a minefield. You have to maneuver around all kinds of potential disasters in the hopes of finding that one special person. For every soulmate out there, there are dozens of bombs ready to explode in your face. While dating apps are meant to make the process a little bit easier, they don’t always work that way. From users being dishonest about who they are to unwelcome pictures sliding into your DM’s a lot can go wrong. Basically, whether you use an app or go old school, dating is hard.

Still, when we asked for our readers to share their experiences with dating, we were surprised by some of the outrageous horror stories that they had to tell. In fact, reading these might just make you delete Bumble right off of your smartphone and take a break from looking for love.

1. Just say no to self-hating Latinos.

Instagram / @sue_k4808

I meet this dude who was working at my bank, he asked me out and while we were out he told me he didn’t like bad bunny because he was too flamboyant (already knew fuck this guy) and follows it up by [saying] he normally only dates white chicks but I intrigued him that’s why he asked me out …. he’s Latino so much self loathing smh.” @carrachichi

2. At least you got to go to Disney.

Instagram / @disneyparksblog

“Met a guy he looked really cute in his pics and his voice on the phone Was omg!!! I think I was at least 20-21 when this happened. He worked at Disneyland so he said he’d get me and a friend in for free. Well, when we met Oh wow…he was a short guy nothing like his pics. Poor guy, he was so embarrassed that he had lied….i tried to talk to him but he was always on his phone and he had a girls pic on his phone wallpaper claimed it was his sister 😂😂 awkward. Oh well, we ditched him and roamed Disney for free.” @aryannuh

3. Politics and dating never mix.

Instagram / @castingculturewars

“I went out with a white guy who called me ignorant for being [a] Democrat. I threw my drink on him and left.” @lowhlowh_lodge

4. Yikes!

Instagram / @shop.glassy

“Met up with some guy from tinder at an arcade bar. Once we met, he asked for money and to order him an Uber so he could go pick up. I left to the bathroom, deleted the app, and went home.” @effin_melly

5. Those are fighting words.

Instagram / @myworstdatepodcast

“I went on a dinner date with a guy and he asked me what inspired me, and I said my epilepsy condition has inspired me to be a better mom & an advocate to spread awareness to my rare brain condition. Anyways, the night went on and he offered to “drive me home” since my condition didn’t allow me to drive, so I offered gas. Once we got in the car he looks at me point-blank in the face and said “you’d be the perfect woman if you didn’t have your health condition, but if you’re still down we can fuck” then I punched his tooth out & broke his window and said he can fuck himself 🤷🏻‍♀️” @mrschabelifrancis_

6. You dodged a bullet with this one.

Instagram / @snehj

“Went on a couple of dates with this cute wrestler and one night invited him over for dinner (code for 🍆💦). When he shows up he has band-aids on his face, I asked him what they were for and he said he got ringworm from wrestling mats🤮🤢🥴 When I refused to make out with him etc he left and proceeded to text me calling me a b*tch 🤔😳 Needless to say, never saw him again.” @bizzz_wilzzzz

7. Who does that!?

Instagram / @dating.is.hard

“Met a guy who was into fitness and was a fitness model online. When we got to the restaurant he opened the door and said I didn’t say thank you to him. I brushed it off thinking he was joking. While ordering he kept substituting everything on his meal which was annoying because he was taking forever. When I ordered he asked if I was really going to get that because it was fattening. 😑 When we were leaving the restaurant he again stated that I didn’t say thank you when he opened the door for me. Clearly annoyed, I told him that I had barely crossed the threshold before he even let me do it. I wasn’t feeling him at all and told him if he could take me home because I had things to do. While on the ride back, I asked if he had ever dated any fitness models. He replied that he did but they were very superficial and too into their looks so that’s why he now dated girls that looked like me now. 😤 I wanted to punch him! 😡Clearly done with him I just sat there and couldn’t wait to go home. After some silence, he stated that he was going to take his leftovers for lunch tomorrow and I agreed. He then clearly said, “YOUR leftovers? I bought dinner. That food is mine.” I couldn’t believe him! When we got to my house he leaned in and proceeded to take my leftovers from my lap and put them in his back seat. Who does that!?!?! 🤬🤬🤬” @nattie922

8. Some things are unforgivable. This is one of them.

Instagram / @berrylee.onlineshop

“Was asked out on a date by some guy that was in a band. When he picked me up we started talking and I was looking out the window and when I turned to look at him he had his Vienna sausage out and wanted me to touch it . I said no and he stopped the car and made me walk . 😡. Then had the balls to call me up a few weeks later to ask me out again. Like he thought I would forget.” @twistedmixedchica

9. Dating while Latina is brutal.

Instagram / @wearemitu

I went out with a guy who was VERY concerned if I was undocumented. He was ESPECIALLY concerned if I was from Venezuela since the U.S didn’t have great ties with them. I went out with this other guy who the entire date bashed his family, single parents, and wanted me to know that children in single-parent households would never succeed. I informed him I was a child of a single-parent household and I was pretty successful, in my eyes and my friends and families eyes. Dating as a Latina in 2019…”   @verher89
