Dating, whether you admit it or not, is tricky business. So- why not seek a li’l help from the cosmos to figure out if your personality is cut out for the plunge or you are carved for taking to singlehood like a child takes to candy?
No- this is no joke. Your zodiac does offer a window into how your personality deals with the myriad options available in the ‘relationship realm’ and this time around, we are talking of the single status:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As a fiercely independent sign, you are not a big fan of being tied down, are well-accustomed to calling the shots and hence, have no qualms about being on your own. You don’t NEED a lover and you certainly know how to max the potential of solo life by living it on your own terms.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As a person who values autonomy and independence, you do not mind being on your own. However, you place a lot of premium by constancy and any shift in your relationship status does tend to rattle for a bit. Whether you get into a relationship after being single for a long time or find yourself on your own after being a couple for a long time, the change is likely to disturb you for a considerable time.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Being free-spirited, restless and impulsive, you are, by nature, a fleeting person who tends to get easily bored even when in a seemingly satisfying relationship. Hence, singlehood, to you, is a free pass to casual dating encounters with the freedom to experience life without any fetters of commitment.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
While you pose a tough exterior to the world, you are a warm, dependant individual on the inside who craves the care and support of another fellow being. As such, you do not handle singlehood as well as you might think you do and need a partner who gets you on an emotional plane.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
Leos do not thrive well as singles as they constantly seek out people who shall fuel their need for constant praise and admiration. In reality, they need someone to keep them grounded (their vanity gives them wings!) and tied to their roots. Tough task- but that’s a Leo for you!
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
The most analytical of beings, you tend to dissect every single aspect of a relationship, subject it to deep scrutiny and inspect it under a microscope so as to weigh its pros and cons and come to a decision. This over-analytical approach makes it difficult for you to find someone and if you do deem someone worthy, your roving mind tends to dwell on the analysis of every situation arising in the equation- thereby, making it impossible for you to sustain a relationship. In other words, unless balanced by a complementary force in your partner, you are doomed to singlehood.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
A people’s person, you are unlikely to remain single for very long. You thrive on social ties and tend to fall for anybody who fulfills the criterion of bolstering your ego and doling out showers of praise and admiration on you.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Highly ambitious and highly suspicious, you may tend to enjoy an occasional companionship but place too much weightage by your own life to invest in it for long. You prefer the single status so you can live life, king size!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Sagittarius souls enjoy their freedom and crave adventure and therefore, do just fine with their single lives unless someone who matches their hyper-affinity for adventure trots along and gives them a fair balance of freedom and commitment. Confusing? Well…
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Solitude is your best companion and you prefer to sail through life on your own than seek the help of a wavering (you are cautious and distrustful) companion to fill the sails!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
An out-and-out commitment-phobe, you are known to never fully disarm yourself and be vulnerable even if you completely adore the person. You keep a cautious distance at all times and are quite content living life on your own.
Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20)
The most resistant of all signs to singlehood, you NEED a relationship the most. Highly sensitive with a heightened degree of self-pitying, staying single is lethal to your emotional health. Hence, a partner who smoothens your emotional troughs and motivates you to build yourself up is a must-have for you!
