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.

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.

The ‘How It Started’ Memes Are Filled With The Funny And Wholesome Content We All Need In 2020

@xolei3 / Twitter

It is not a lie to say that 2020 has been a year of disappointment and high-stress scenarios. We’ve had to quarantine from a virus, wildfires are destroying a lot of land, and well, everything else going on has just made things worse. Fortunately, on Twitter trend is giving everyone a chance to see that things can get better.

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone but one Twitter trend is making life a little better.

We’ve all seen the “How It Started” memes taking over social media in recent weeks. The memes are both funny and inspirational with some showing some amazing glow ups and others showing the crushing reality of everyday life. We have all felt like the man crying over 2020 at some point over the last 7 months. It’s like this year just doesn’t stop.

Relationships are a big part of this meme trend.

Oof. This is painful and so many of us know this to be true. 😭 Sure, we can all blame our relationship woes on the current state of the world. However, that would just be doing a disservice to ourselves and our love lives. Most of us who are single now have been single for a very long time pre-Covid. But, hey, no one knows that you’re lying if you blame Covid.

A few wonderful people highlighted their transition into their true selves.

Stunning. Show-stopping. Magnificent. We love to see it. There is nothing better to see in this world than someone living their authentic truth. Like, go and do your thing. Slay all of the hearts you see, honey, and take no prisoners. We are all better in their world to be surrounded by people living in complete honesty.

The Lil Nas X joined in on the fun and highlighted his own meteoric rise to fame.

The “Old Town Road” singer really did make a big name for himself. Not only did his song get made into a duet and remix with every artist imaginable, he beat Mariah Carey’s record. Lil Nas X went from someone that no one knew to unseating Mariah Carey for longest time spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

There are some very clever takes on this meme.

So, like, who else feels like they are being personally attacked by this meme? College might have been years ago but these memories linger. Tequila is just one of those things that so many of use have to learn the hard way and those lessons stick with you.

Simone Biles gave us one of the most memorable glow ups of the meme challenge.

Simone Biles is one of the most legendary women to ever walk this planet. The way she was able to make herself known around the world as the best gymnast is no short feat. She is and will always be one of the best women to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.

Juni From ‘Spy Kids’ Is Going To Be A Dad And Where Did All The Years Go???

Michael Tran / Stringer

You heard it here ‘Spy Kids’ fans! Daryl Sabara, who played the part of Juni Cortez in the original Robert Rodriguez franchise, is going to be a dad for the very first time. That’s right, on Wednesday during an appearance on the “Today show” the actor and his popstar wife Meghan Trainor announced that they are now about to be all about that baby!

On Wednesday Sabara and Trainor revealed that they are expecting their first child together.

“I’m very good as you can tell — it’s all Christmas here,” Trainor teased. “But there’s other news that I’m dying to tell you and my heart’s pounding out of my chest,” she said before telling her husband to “hit it,” before Sabara proudly revealed, “We’re pregnant!”

“We’re so excited we couldn’t sleep,” Trainor gushed. “We’ve been waiting for so long. I was thinking about who do we tell first and I’ve told Hoda since I was 19, going to the Today show, ‘I will have the most babies in the world.’ “

“Every time I see you, I’m like, it’s going to happen,” shee continued. “And it finally happened!”

Trainor, 26, and Sabara, 28, married two years ago in December 2018.

At the time, the two shared that they had been set up by their mutual friend Chloë Grace Moretz and became certain right away that they were in it for the long haul. “I definitely was positive month one when he was on tour with me, and we were like basically living together on the road,” Trainor told People in an interview at the time.

“It’s super cheesy, but when you know, you know,” Sabara explained at the time. “As soon as she walked in the room and I saw her, I just knew: This is the one.”

Since before their marriage, the couple has been open and vocal about their desire to have children.

“If we could do it how we want to, we’d be, like, totally preggo right now!” Trainor told People in an interview before getting married. “We’re ready to rumble. I want some children! I want kids! We’re both so excited for it. We both constantly watch baby YouTube videos and lessons on YouTube, like ‘How to take care of an infant.’ We’re just getting prepared every single day.”

Trainor also expressed her desire to start a family, as soon as she finished touring for her album, Treat Myself.

“I’m hounding everyone, like, ‘When can I get pregnant?’ I think after the tour, I’m just going to get it going,” she said at the time. “I definitely want a village!”

For now, it seems Trainor and Sabara are well on their way to fulfilling their dreams of a family.

“He’ll get dinner for me and set it all up for me, and he knows what I want to drink, makes my ginger ale with my ice,” Trainor raved. “He takes care of me to the fullest level that I don’t even lift a finger. … I never thought I’d be so spoiled in love. He completes everything.”
