So let’s get real, some of us have extremely high standards in our daily life, but we can all agree on one thing: we have a couple of expectations for a potential partner. Deal breakers are serious and should never be ignored. An Aries could never stand to date a couch potato, while the Gemini could never maintain a long-term relationship with a boring individual. Then there are the Libras of the world, who simply hope to meet a kind-hearted person to fall in love with. Keep reading to find out the harsh truths and to what extent these deal breakers are essential in your life and may impact a future relationship.
Aries: Aries are self-assured and driven, and like to be around people who share those same traits. If you’re a devoted couch potato or can’t put up with a little heated discussion from time to time, you may not be the Ram’s ideal match.
Taurus: Taurus is cautious and steady by nature. They don’t like disorder or being rushed. Dating someone who throws all caution to the wind in their daily life or who makes decisions without thinking them through probably won’t be a long-term match for the Bull.
Gemini: The Twins are quick-witted and love good conversation. They’re bound to get bored if they’re with someone who can’t verbally spar with them. They also love to be social, so if their date can’t fend for themselves at a party while Gemini is making the rounds, a long-term relationship could be difficult to maintain.
Cancer: Emotional, sensitive Crabs see the world with compassion, so they have a hard time being around people who don’t share their sympathetic perspective. They’re also extremely family oriented, so if their date isn’t, that’s a good sign that things may not go very far.
Leo: There’s a good reason Leo has a reputation for wanting to be in the spotlight – it’s true! They love to be on stage, basking in the attention, so it’s hard to see them putting up with anyone who doesn’t support their flair for the dramatic.
Virgo: Practical and responsible to a fault, Virgos like to be on time, with all of their ducks in a row. It’s almost impossible to picture them with people who don’t give a whole lot of thought to their responsibilities.
Libra: Libra is a kind, courteous sign. They like to be around people who are the same way. They’re also very social and charming. The ideal mates for Libras aren’t wallflowers or people who don’t know how to hold their own on a simple, casual outing or at a formal event.
Scorpio: Scorpios have a deep-seated need to know what’s going on. Someone who holds out on them or isn’t truthful isn’t the ideal date. They say curiosity killed the cat, but if you aren’t ready to answer Scorpio’s intense questions, it might just kill the romance in its tracks!
Sagittarius: Sagittarians love to be on the go. Travel is their first love, so dating someone who likes to stay close to home and is unwilling to go on an adventure probably won’t work long-term. This sign also has a studious side, so anyone who isn’t interesting in learning need not apply!
Capricorn: Capricorns are conservative and self-disciplined to the core. Any potential love interests who don’t have their act together won’t win many brownie points with the Goat. Capricorns want dates who share a penchant for practicality and prudence. Fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants types get the boot early on.
Aquarius: Always a bit eccentric and imaginative in their thinking, freethinking Aquarius looks for dates with open minds and long-term vision. The Water Bearer also values humanitarianism and contributing to society, so dates with a selfish worldview leave them cold.
Pisces: Pisces is extremely sensitive and peace loving, so they won’t stay long with someone who doesn’t take feelings into consideration or wants to fight over nothing. Another dating deal breaker for the Fish is someone who wants to know too much information too soon. They will reveal personal information when they’re ready!
