You can easily recall when you fell for someone back in high school who you thought was the perfect match for you, but who turned out to be one of the worst partners imaginable.
Perhaps you married one, and then the marriage did not last for one reason. When you think you find traits that are impressive in a potential partner, that can become troublesome.
The traits that you like in someone may become incompatible with your traits once you end up in a relationship with them.
The Wrong Kind of People You Usually Fall
You have to end the relationship and think to yourself, “I cannot believe I fell for the wrong person”. If you can relate to that, you are not alone. Let’s now look at the wrong kind of people you usually fall for based on your zodiac sign.
Aries – Someone Who Knows What They Want
Aries, you are assertive by nature, and you will respect anyone who is also assertive and action-oriented. Therefore, it would be understandable for you to fall for someone who knows what they want and has an independent streak out of respect.
You look up to those who are very independent. However, what happens when you and your partner want very different things that can get in the way of one another?
That will not go over too well, and your relationship not only is at risk of not lasting, but the parting will not be cordial. You may not be attracted to someone indecisive, but don’t write them off as you could be a good role model for them.
Taurus – Goes After the Ideal Partner That Is Less Than Ideal
Taurus, you want stability and predictability. You are also the type that isn’t too flexible about changing your mind once you have an idea in your head.
That is why if you develop a belief about something, you will stand by it because of your stubborn nature. The risk right there is that if you fall in love with someone who you think is right for you, then you will convince yourself that they are and go after them.
If you do end up in a relationship with them, you may find out the hard way that they could not be more wrong for you. For instance, if you are a homebody but the one you are in love with is not and wants to travel all of the time, that can cause a problem!
It is best not to get hung up on ideas about potential partners until you get to know them better. It may save you a lot of heartaches later on.
Gemini – Fear of Getting Hurt Brings in Those Who Will Hurt Them
Gemini, you are fun and versatile, and you like to socialize. However, you also don’t like getting into commitments. Deep down, you are afraid you will become hurt by a partner, and you are not decisive about what you want in a relationship.
Therefore, you are likely to drive away those who show that they care about you because you believe that they will hurt you if they get closer to you.
And you may end up attracting those who are shallow and don’t care about who they use and hurt, and those are the ones who will end up hurting you.
Therefore, if someone shows interest in you, don’t write them off because there is a good chance, they will not intentionally hurt you.
Cancer – Attracts Attention-Seekers and Energy Vampires
Cancer, you are very nurturing and caring, and family oriented. However, you are emotional, and unfortunately, many have every intention of taking advantage of your caring nature.
That is why you tend to fall for those who appear to be needy because you want to care for them and make sure they are getting what they need. Once energy vampires and attention-seekers see that you are highly empathetic, they will cling to you.
You enjoy giving care until they drain you, and you begin resenting them for not giving back what you give them. You want to make sure that whoever you end up with will give back and meet your needs the way you meet theirs.
Leo – Those Who Say ‘Yes’ to Everything
Leo, you are the one who wants to be in the spotlight, and you want to lead the way too. That is why the type of people you fall for is incredibly agreeable and will not fight with you on anything.
They will allow you to control them and at first, you will enjoy it because you love to run the show. However, there is also a part of you that craves some friction. You may not consciously realize it, but you want to once in a while be challenged.
So, you need someone to say ‘no’ to you sometimes. Healthy conflicts keep the relationship alive, and if your partner agrees to everything you do, you will feel like you are stagnating.
Virgo – Those Who Are Too Casual and Don’t Take Things Too Seriously
Virgo, you are very analytical, clean, and work and service-oriented. You are very organized, and you would prefer to hook up with someone who is also very clean, but at the same time, you attract those who may be too casual in the way they view things.
You attract those who are not concerned enough and don’t always take life seriously. You think that is a good match for you because you know your intensity, and you feel that someone casual will balance you out.
However, even though there is some truth to that, you also need someone who will challenge you. You need someone who can give you helpful advice and even offer constructive criticism even though consciously you don’t like that.
However, if you are in a relationship with someone too chill, you will not be satisfied with them.
Libra – Fall for Those Who Love Appearances
Libra, you are charming, and kind, and you love fashion since Venus is your ruler. However, you also do not like getting into confrontations, and you struggle with making decisions.
The other issue is that you have a desperate need for others to like you. One way that you know you will get others to like you is if you have a lovely appearance, and that is why you enjoy dressing up.
That also means you will fall for the ones who also love the way you look, and you don’t look past whether they are a good fit for you. If you see that they like you, you will want to be with them.
However, you will end up regretting that later when you see that they are completely wrong for you or don’t treat you with respect. You want a partner who will like you for who you are too!
Scorpio – Those Who Are Submissive
Scorpio, you are intense and passionate, and you do not want anyone controlling you. That is why you are the way you are by keeping to yourself and keeping things private, and you want to ensure that the one you are with will not control you in any way or form.
That is why you will go for a partner who is not assertive and will be submissive to anything you want them to do. However, you are also not a cruel person, and you may find yourself making some unkind moves and being wracked with guilt.
The best partner for you is the one who will empathize with you and want to understand you without having any hidden agenda.
Sagittarius – Those Who Don’t Take Things Seriously
Sagittarius, you are happy-go-lucky, and you enjoy traveling and having adventures. You like your freedom and don’t want restrictions. That is why you will end up falling for someone who is just like you.
The idea of having a travel partner who does not take things seriously is a dream for you. However, in the long run, that will cause your relationship harm because you will not be challenged in any way.
You need someone who will take life more seriously, challenge you, but will respect your need for freedom at the same time.
Capricorn – Those Who Are Reserved and Introverted
Capricorn, you are quiet and introverted, and you are focused on your work and ambitions. You also don’t trust easily. However, you are the serious type by nature, and the one you would fall for would also be reserved and introverted.
That is because you don’t worry about them having any agenda, which is understandable. However, neither of you will interact properly, and both of you will be tense, which will stress you both out.
Your ideal partner is practical as you but more easy-going and a little more gregarious. Not overly gregarious, but someone who can lighten things up in the relationship.
Aquarius – Someone Who Is Too Laid Back
Aquarius, you are carefree and progressive, and you are the type who is friendly and has a humanitarian side but is distant. You also don’t like to make relationship commitments.
However, you will hook up with someone too laid back and who is just as carefree as you are when you do. The type of relationship you would have would be similar to the type of person Sagittarius would fall for, which is that similar type.
You need someone who is more practical but will give you the space you need, as long as they keep you grounded.
Pisces – Those Who Take Advantage of Them
Pisces, you are sensitive and empathetic, and you are a dreamer. But unfortunately, that means those who do not have the best intentions will end up hooking up with you to take advantage of your kind nature.
You will fall for them because they will play the victim somehow, and you will end up giving up a lot of your love and energy to help them. Therefore, you could easily fall in love with someone part of the Dark Triad or someone who will take advantage of you for some reason.
Either way, they will hurt you and break you. You need someone who will love you the way you love them.
When you think you are falling for someone, the best thing to do is evaluate what you want in a relationship. That is because you are looking for one trait in someone, which means their other characteristics may end up being toxic for you.
For instance, if you are an Aries and are looking for someone who is independent and knows what they want because you respect those traits, you are not considering that their independent nature will clash with yours.
Therefore, when you are looking for a partner, you may want to be open to the idea that some opposing traits to your own can help balance the quality of the relationship, so it has a better chance of working.
