The Worst Signs to Date Based on Your Personality

By: Diamond Buckley

Sometimes, when you first start talking to or dating someone, it’s hard to notice any red flags to stay away. No one wants to waste their time on a relationship that might be a dead end. Luckily the stars are a great help to this problem. I’ve curated a list for signs each horoscope sign shouldn’t date to help you out:


If you prefer to go with the flow: Don’t date a Capricorn. Capricorns are very “by the rules” kind of people and spontaneity is a four letter word to them. So, unless you want to butt heads about the proper way to fold laundry for the rest of your lives, dating a Capricorn is probably a no go.

If you wear your heart on your sleeve: Don’t date an Aquarius. Aquariuses are notorious for coming off as heartless and always keep you guessing about how they feel about you. While it’s not necessarily their intention, they are terrible at conveying their emotions and terrified by intimacy.

If you’re a narcissist: Don’t date a Leo. Leos have very big egos that need to be catered to. If there are two people in the relationship with inflated egos, it’s only a matter of time before they butt heads.

If you’re looking for consistency: don’t date a Sagittarius. Sags will have you on a rollercoaster you didn’t realize you signed up for. Sags don’t like to be held down by “normal” relationship rules. They are fun and spontaneous, but often don’t know when to draw the line and be serious.

If you despise clinginess: don’t date a Taurus. Tauruses need constant validation and reassurance that you might not have the energy to give. They want to spend as much time as possible with you because they tend to make their love interests the center of their world. If you’re someone that values their space, dating a Taurus isn’t the safest bet.

If you’re a control freak: Don’t date an Aries. Aries tend to want to be the Alpha in the relationship and always need to have the last word. They also have the tendency to manipulate and try to change aspects of their partners that they don’t find suitable. If you’re someone who already needs their life in a particular way, dating an Aries is not for you.


Using someone’s astrological sign to determine if they are a good mate is not a full proof method, but it’s a good starting point. Everyone is different, so make sure to take this advice with a grain of salt.
