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.

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 Strained Family Ties To Outright Abuse, These Women Opened Up About Interracial Dating

From Strained Family Ties To Outright Abuse, These Women Opened Up About Interracial Dating

whitemenblackwomendating / Instagram

Many of us date people from different cultures and backgrounds. We asked our FIERCE community if they had stories related to the issues they had dating someone of a different ethnicity and the responses were enlightening, hopeful and sometimes even a bit heartbreaking.

Differences can be overwhelming but interest is super key.

“For me was so difficult. I’m Mexican, raise and born in Mexico and I was dating with a Xicano man, but he never was into the Mexican culture… long story short, we broke up. Some differences were overwhelming.”

Expressing excitement over exchanging cultures goes a long way.

“My husband of 13 years is a white American while I’m Mexican American, first born generation of immigrants. He loves my heritage and appreciates my family. He gravitates toward our culture because his family doesn’t really have anything like that except being American, which is kind of boring to him. They know they are a big mix of English, Irish, and Scottish with some Dutch and German but that’s really the extent of it… he’s also learned Spanish and went with me to live in Cuernavaca for a month to study.”

The sad truth is that fear of being judged or mistreated sometimes keeps us from such fulfilling relationships.

“We don’t. We get dirty looks everywhere we go. I’m either a traitor or a thief.”

Previous interactions with other races and proper communication are vital

“I think both of us being bi-racial (myself being Ecuadorian and Irish, my bf being Black and Polish) has shown us that there are many different ways to do the same thing and that not all things are as they appear. When we run into those cultural differences, it helps to try to see the duality of the situation. Communication and respect are [key].”

You can both learn about your cultures together.

“I play him the Mexican survival guide videos. Very accurate, also lots of communication!”

Talk about the shared struggles of your cultures.

” I’m really passionate about this topic. I’m Mexican-American & my husband is South African. Like my parents, he’s an immigrant. A white immigrant. While the differences of being a white immigrant and a Mexican one are obvious, it’s the shared struggles & similar perspectives that are worth highlighting.
One perspective that has struck me is when my husband said, “I noticed Americans don’t make eye contact. In South Africa we at least acknowledge a person by doing so….” then I sarcastically thought to myself, ‘wow, what an idea. People recognizing the existence of other human beings.” Though I am guilty of this! BUT. Why am I guilty of this? Could it be that I was raised to acknowledge others even if it meant hugging every tia & tio in the room? Or my favorite, less intimidating way of respectfully recognizing that your fellow humans are present while also respecting your boundaries: greeting a room full of strangers with a smile & a “buenos días,” as you sit quietly in an open chair at the doctors office? But we don’t do this in America, at least not where I’m from. Most of us tend to do the opposite of acknowledge each other.
So back to the point:
we navigate our cultural differences by having these kinds of dialogues; connecting the dots. Mapping out how different humans attempt to figure out this crazy world we live where a wild fascination with the color of skin & borders exist. Who are we when we let go of our country & our skin?”

Speak up but also listen and learn.

“I’m Mexican and my bf is black/puerto rican my family has knew about him before when I talked to him in high school but they never really liked the fact that we were together so they separated me from him and made me switch high schools my senior year it was hard I talked to other people the two years we lost contact but realized he’s my happiness and now I gave us another chance without my family knowing I’m still figuring out how I’m going to let everyone know Ik that some of my family will shut me out because they are really old school/ traditional Mexicans and what me to be with someone of my race and my beliefs but we love each other so we are gonna make this work.”

R-E-S-P-E-C-T

“Respect, appreciation and being open to conversation. He still thinks I’m a little crazy for wanting to one day pierce our future daughter’s ears.”

When you have kids, be sure keep your families involved.

“Been in a 10 year relationship. My husband is Asian and it’s been so hard even til now. His family has a hard time dealing with the fact that he is with a Mexican woman. We have two kids and I can count with one hand how many times they have seen my kids. I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. My son looks completely Asian and my daughter looks mixed. Just a few days ago he asked me why me and his dad look so different and I told him we are from two different ethnicities, different parts of the world. He said he wished he was only Mexican and looked like mommy  it’s hard because my family is all he’s ever had. We try to visit his family but they always say they are busy. Being in a interracial relationship has been so hard for me. It’s been so draining they even encouraged him to cheat in the beginning of our marriage. I’m drained, don’t know how much longer I can do this for. I know this is not the case for all interracial relationships but it’s been hell for me.”

Selena Gomez And Hailey Baldwin Just Had Another Interaction And You Might Be Shocked By What Happened

It appears Selena Gomez’s newest hit isn’t just doing some healing for her. After an intense week that included the drop of two insightful songs and some fan speculation, and even some bullying, Gomez and her ex’s wife Hailey Baldwin might be ready to set aside their grievances.

After fans threw shade towards Baldwin earlier this week, the model showed support to Selena through an Instagram like.

Soon after Gomez’s song “Lose You To Love Me” first dropped, Baldwin posted the song “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker to her Instagram Story. Fans speculated that Hailey was throwing shade at Selena, but Baldwin quickly shot down the speculation and called it “BS.” Typical to social media culture, the bullies swarmed and struck at Baldwin until Gomez intervened.

Then recently, after a friend of Gomez shared an image celebrating the singer, Baldwin liked it.

Could this mean it’s all over?

Earlier this week, Gomez dropped a new song called “Lose You to Love Me,” and literally everyone thinks it’s about Justin Bieber. This morning, Hailey Bieber posted Story of Summer Walker’s song “I’ll Kill You,” on her IG story and she had the entire internet reading into the whole thing. Here’s everything that went down.

Selena dropped a new song about heartbreak, and fans are convinced it’s about Justin Bieber.

Selena Gomez sings, ”You promised the world and I fell for it, I put you first and you adored it.” “Lose You to Love Me” traces a toxic relationship with some pointed lines that have fueled speculation that the tune is Gomez purging her heartbreak over Bieber.

Bieber and Gomez’s nearly decade-long on-again-off-again relationship officially ended in March of 2018. A few months later, Bieber reportedly began to date Baldwin. By July, the two were engaged.

Yes, Justin is now a married man, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from talking about “Jelena,” again.

Justin Bieber married Hailey Baldwin —or Hailey Bieber rather— in the autumn of 2018. After a few weeks of speculation, the singer took to social media to confirm the marriage. Bieber published an Instagram photograph of the duo walking hand-in-hand with the simple caption: “My wife is awesome.” Baldwin promptly changed her social domain to @haileybieber and the Beliebers went wild. “It took some getting used to, for sure,” Baldwin told Bustle of changing her name. “It’s definitely strange, it takes adjusting.” 

In September of this year, the couple threw a larger celebration.

Justin and Hailey exchanged vows in front of 154 guests, according to People. The ceremony took place at the Somerset Chapel of Montage Palmetto Bluff hotel in Bluffton, South Carolina. The couple reportedly “fell in love” with the venue after visiting the area. The Biebers apparently “changed their minds so many times” about the ideal venue (past reports said they were eyeing Canada), but they ultimately agreed on this idyllic southern location.

Selena’s new song “Lose you to Love me,” is her first single since 2018.

The piano-driven pop ballad was released worldwide with an accompanying music video that —fun fact— was filmed using an Iphone 11. The song was dropped more than a year after Selena’s last single titled “Back to You” in 2018, which was released for the second season of Netflix‘s 13 Reasons Why
