After a long and kind of brutal 2017, we're finally jumping into a brand new year. We can put all of the mistakes, regrets and bad decisions of 2017 behind us. Forget about that Tinder date who totally ghosted you after a week of hanging out. Forget about that guy who only wanted to text after midnight. Forget about the fights with your boyfriend or that time he made you late for dinner because he was too busy playing video games with his friends. 2018 is a new year and time for a fresh start, no matter what your love life holds.
For some, 2018 is going to be so much better. It's good dates, a new boyfriend or falling more in love with your current boo. But for others, 2018 could actually be much worse. Sorry to break it to you, but 2017 may have actually been a good year. You might be in for some rough patches in 2018. But no matter how your love life turns out this year, it helps to be prepared. Read on to see what the stars have in store for you. Will you be in a new relationship by Valentine's Day? Engaged before next Christmas? Going on dates like it's your job? Hopelessly single all year long? Only the zodiac knows!
15 Aries: In Matters Of The Heart, Hold On... You're In For A Bumpy Ride
Aries, 2018 is going to be a roller coaster of a year for you where your love life is concerned. There are going to be some epic highs but also some really major lows. So buckle up. The year is going to start really good. If you're single, watch out for someone charming and hot to walk into your life in the first few months of 2018. And if you're in a relationship, the first few months of the new year are going to feel blissful with your man being the perfect gentleman. But then, things take a turn. Mr. Wonderful turns out to be anything but. Lucky for you, you love adventures! And your love life is certainly going to be one this year.
14 Taurus: Turns Out, Not Much Is Changing For You In Terms Of Your Love Life
In 2018, not much is going to be changing in your love life, Taurus. And depending on how you ended 2017, this could be a good thing or a very bad thing. All of your relationships are just going to remain status quo. Your partner is going to be there for you all year long. He'll be supportive and attentive. When you look back, you'll realize how much this guy actually loves you. And while your love life may be calm in 2018, the rest of your life certainly won't be. You can lean on your boo to help you through but remember that you're a strong woman who can take care of yourself too. Talk to your guy and tell him how you feel. Put on your big girl pants and solve your problems.
13 But, Taurus, It's Time To Actually Start Listening To Your Squad
