Love: That tantalizing, titillating sensation most of us have felt at least once in our lives. Oftentimes this leads to thoughts of long, romantic walks, dinners by candlelight, and… Whipped cream in bed? Okay, maybe what gets you going isn’t what gets us going. There’s no shame in having different preferences, especially if your partner is into the same stuff you are. But what happens when things go horribly wrong? What happens if something you thought you both liked, doesn’t? All of a sudden your happy, peaceful relationship is out the window. But don’t worry! It can be avoided with a little help from the stars. (And we’re not talking about Ellen DeGeneres.) You and your partner’s zodiac signs can help determine what you hate the most in a relationship. By paying attention to your sign preferences you’re keeping you and your boo on level ground. No matter what your match is, we have the answer to what you hate the most, based on your signs.
24 Aquarius Guy: Cut-And-Dry Personality
Aquarius men, don’t think you’re all that different. While you might like the safety involved in routine, you certainly don’t like no fun girls (or boys) who only stay on the straight, narrow, and logical road. You need some fun and fancy, as well as a sense of humor. Because Aquarius men are prone to being more sensitive than their counterparts, Aries, Capricorn, or Sagittarius partners are not going to work out for you. These outspoken signs might be sparky, but they’re certainly not the creative and clever personalities you need. Having a black and white personality, and thinking of things in a cut and dry manner are what you hate most. On the bright side, your relationships are usually the most interesting of your friend group. The intellectual stimulation is a positive, and it’s hard to say no to your quirky, quiet, intelligent charm.
23 Pisces Guy: Fake
Pisces men, there’s nothing you hate more than a fake person. Someone who is insincere, maybe a little standoffish, and on the whole unwilling to be themself. You need someone who can get deep down inside you, and who’ll let you get deep down inside them. And a person who’s busy trying to cover up who they really are isn’t going to be able to give you that. Not to mention the fact that you generally aren’t attracted to laughs that are too loud, opinions that are too easily swayed, and personalities that’s too directly taken from the pop culture zeitgeist. Leos are often not your cup of tea, nor are Cancers. While there’s nothing wrong with these signs, Leos are usually too presentational for you, while Cancers are too closed off for you. Either way, you’re better off without them. Try pairing up with a Virgo or a Taurus. These signs are intelligent, genuine, and aren’t afraid to match your wit and intellect.
22 Aries Guy: Not Getting His Way
Ask any Aries guy, and he’ll tell you that he’s afraid and intimidated by someone who out-powers him. While it can make for a super hot relationship dynamic, it more often than not disintegrates into arguments, indecision, and stubborn dinner dates. Aries guys often feel like they need to get their way, or else they get angry and unhappy. While it’s not the end of the world, it can certainly feel like it for these boys… Especially if they’re also hangry or having a bad day. Being paired with a woman who challenges him is good, but having a partner that doesn’t give more often than they take can have negative results. Leos, other Aries, Capricorns, Scorpios, and Sagittarians are a bad choice of pairing for this go-get-em guy. On the flip side, an Aries man is actually well-paired with someone like a Virgo or a Gemini. The Aries man will act as a rock to these signs, and will always be happy to make the decision.
21 Sagittarius Guy: Negativity
Sagittarius men are neither intimidated, nor put off by a decisive woman. They don’t get squeamish around fluids, smells, or other unsavory sensations. They don’t even care if they’re too hot or cold. The only thing that gets them turned off is a sourpuss. And we’re not talking about taste. No, we’re talking about emotional vampires: those grumpy, unwelcoming, harsh individuals that feed off of negativity and gain their strength from zapping yours. Sagittarius guys have a rich inner life, and like to be with someone who not only boosts them, but he can boost too! Aquarians, Cancers, even Pisces people can all have compatible relationships with a Sagittarius guy. But anyone who’s got a vampiric streak is a no go… We’re looking at you, Capricorn. Even Leos can be bad if they’re turning sour. Don’t worry: it’s nothing a little garlic and holy water can’t fix.
20 Scorpio Guy: Dreaminess
Scorpios are stuck in a state of practicality. They don’t make for great partners when it comes to the artistic, dreamy, or otherwise preoccupied signs. Those folks that are stuck in fantasy land are the bane of a Scorpio man’s existence. He likes to know what’s happening and when, and doesn’t want to be told you two will “see where your whims take you”. He’s a man with a plan, and he wants a partner who feels the same! His lady (or man) will ideally enjoy structure. Signs like Aries, Taurus, and even Libra will be a good match for the Scorpio man, as they won’t irk him. In fact, he’ll find their love of stability really, really hot. Not one to fall for the ditzy princess or head-in-the-cloud-dreamer, Pisces and Aquarius are the worst matches for this cool dude.
19 Capricorn Guy: Everything
Is there anything that Capricorn men don’t like? A better question might be, what exactly makes them happy? While they might sound difficult and hard to please, it’s not exactly true. These signs are just a little more sensitive than others (but don’t tell them we told you). Inside their tough exterior is a soft, sensitive man who feels everything very intensely. He isn’t a fan of change, extravagance, overly organized, fake, or disorganized people. He likes a relationship that’s equal parts caring, artistic, wild, intelligent, and calm. It’s impossible to come up with the perfect match for him, because every day he could be a different man. Regardless of what your sign is, if you find yourself in a relationship with a Capricorn man, be ready for him to say “No, I don’t like that” AT LEAST once a night. It’s not that he’s trying to be difficult, or to trick you; he’s just so dependent on mood that he really can’t track it.
18 Leo Guy: Lack of Energy
It's always difficult to deal with differing feelings in a relationship. If you're someone who likes to have a lot of passion in your love life, you're going to be sorely disappointed by someone who schedules their intimacy between grocery shopping and taking the kids to their biweekly soccer practice. Leo men are some of the most notorious for being dissatisfied with their partner’s lack of energy. If they're dating someone who's a Capricorn, Gemini, Libra, Pisces, or Virgo, you know there's going to be some issues. It's not like they want to cause a disparity, but they just don't have the same sort of desires as their Leo men. And this is a huge turn off. Leo men are always on the go, and are always looking for the next big thing. If their partner can't keep up with them, they're not afraid to kick 'em to the curb and leave them in the dust.
17 Gemini Guy: Indecisiveness
Go ahead and laugh, but we wouldn’t write it if it wasn’t true. Sometimes people hate or get turned off by something about their partner because it’s reminiscent of something they do, and dislike about themselves. This is the case of the Gemini man, who’s stuck between loving and hating those folks that he deems are “too indecisive”. While he feels a kinship with them, it’s more of a turn off than it is a turn on. Nobody really wants to be intimate with someone who can’t make up their mind about things. Plus, it just makes him think of all the ways he can’t make a choice. While this isn’t the worst one on the list, it’s pretty bad; your guy might be riddled with anxiety every time you say “I dunno, I can’t choose”. The solution? For a gemini man, it’s simple: DON’T DATE OTHER GEMINIS! Opposites attract, buddy, and you’ll find yourself very attracted to those decisive, in-your-face ladies.
16 Taurus Guy: Extreme Temperatures
Too hot? Too cold? While your day-to-day life can easily be solved by adding or subtracting layers of clothes, it’s more difficult when there’s already no clothing involved. If you’re too hot or too cold behind closed doors, tough cookies. Not much can be done unless you want to move it outside or pile on the blankets. We’re big believers in the Taurus men’s point of view: stay comfortable, whatever the cost. Taurus men are not into extreme temperatures, and dislike the fact that they might end up at the mercy of their partner’s inner thermometer. The good news? There are pairings that can make it work. Fire signs tend to run hotter, which can warm up a bed on a cold winter’s night. And if you’re with an understanding sign, like a Libra or an Aquarius, they’ll be more receptive to you getting up and throwing on a sweater in the middle of a big bang.
15 Virgo Guy: Rotten Smells
Oooh, bad BO doesn’t smell sexy on ANYONE. While there’s something to be said for appreciating your partner’s natural musk, it’s quite another thing to be rolling around in rotten rankness. Virgo men HATE when their FWBs, significant others, and casual dates smell bad. Whether that’s from a lack of showering or just one two many spritzes of the perfume bottle doesn’t matter. If a Virgo man doesn’t like your “delightful” deodorant or all-natural allure, you can be sure that all sexy times are off. Signs that are prone to going overboard on their scent style? Leos, Pisces, and Aquarians. The ones that go the opposite direction, lacking seemingly all sense of their own noxious BO? Capricorns and Libras. These two either don’t care, or don’t pay attention to it. They’ve got bigger fish to fry than the one they rubbed on their neck that morning. Unfortunately they won’t catch any Virgo men like that. Oh well! There are other things in the sea.
14 Any Other Sign EXCEPT Leo, Capricorn, Aries, Sagittarius, or Scorpio: Arguments
Is anybody into getting angry? Apparently, yes. According to those that do get down by anger, there’s something about the passionate heat of an argument that gets them hot and bothered. If you’re with a partner who also has a temper, like a Leo, Capricorn, Aries, Sagittarius, or Scorpio, you two are in for a good time. Any other sign is sure to get turned off by this weird emotional mix up. And if you’re partnered with one of those weird ones who likes to break up just to make up? Good luck! There’s nothing more annoying than someone trying to get you in the mood when you’re clearly turned off. These relationships might end up having more off than on, but a little pleasant discussion is sure to fix it… Even if it won’t scratch every itch.
13 Leo, Capricorn, or Sagittarius MEN: Scratching
On the topic of itches, let’s talk about those who hate by people who like to dig their claws into their partner’s back, buttocks, and biceps. It’s hard to believe that there’s anyone who doesn’t like this sensation, but men who are of the Leo, Capricorn, or Sagittarius ilk are not the ones looking for ladies with claws. These signs are too proud, and maybe a little too vain, to have their beautiful skins marked up with the strikes of passion. It’s not their fault they’re too beautiful for a little digging in; they were made that way, as the stars show. While they might be attracted to other strong, passionate signs right off the bat, they’ll find that they’ll want to stick with Pisces people, Libras, Geminis, Virgos, or Aquarians in order to keep their delicate body in top physical form. These signs prefer a more romantic approach to relationships, and aren’t going to spend the whole night scratching up, biting, or otherwise marking the body of their partner. The bright side? These signs are just as passionate… With little more of a delicate touch.
12 Capricorns or Virgos: Disorganization
You know those business people who like to have their stapler at a 10 degree angle to their computer monitor so they can keep papers together in a quick, consistent, and orderly fashion? Those people are often Capricorns or Virgos, both signs that get bent out of shape over the littlest details. While most people don’t want to be in a dirty room, these two absolutely refuse to do it… Ever. They’re totally not down with the thought of being around disorganization, which means Sagittarius partners are totally out of the picture. While other signs are willing to change their organization habits if it means that much to their partner, Sagittarians don’t often feel the same. They despise details, and hate the thought of fixing the little things that don’t mean anything in the grand scheme. Oh well! There are plenty of other well-catalogued, organized fish in the sea.
11 Cancer Guy: Ruthlessness
Literally anywhere, Cancer men HATE to see people being ruthless. This is a big no for them, and they won’t apologize for it. They appreciate a gentle approach, and can easily see both sides of a situation (as long as they’re not involved in it). Being hard-headed and relentless in the pursuit of a single idea is a recipe for disaster, according to Cancer men. It usually means this partner’s tender side is harder to reach as well, which is an issue for Cancer men. They need to see some love and care in their relationships, because it’s the only way they’re going to show anyone theirs! So, sorry Capricorns, Aries, Taurus, and Sagittarius. You might be superstars in the office, but you’re not the superstar of your Cancer man’s heart.
10 Leo Girl: Staying In
Sometimes even the wildest of signs need a week (or a night) to recharge. They go go go until they can’t manage to cram anything else in, and only then do they “give up” and spend a night at home. This isn’t a give up for everyone, though! A lot of signs are happy to spend time alone, or with their significant other, staying in and binging Netflix and ice cream. It just depends on what you like to do to relax. Leo ladies are usually the ones who are most prone to not being down by the idea of spending a night inside. They like to go out and be their wild, attention-grabbing selfs. There’s nothing better than blowing off steam by going out and about, which is an opinion shared by the other wild and fiery signs. Bad news for Pisces, Geminis, and Libras. They’re the ones who love to spend their nights in. If you’re a wild sign partnered with these folks, get ready for trouble!
9 Aquarius Girl: Boredom
Let’s start with the biggest hate that more often than not turns into a relationship killer. Ladies, how many times have you broken up with someone because the relationship has turned boring and yawn-filled? Whether you want to keep yourself excited, keep your partner on their toes, or just want to be surprised now and then, it’s totally valid that you get annoyed by boredom. And if you’re an Aquarius, it’s a deal breaker. You should stay away from signs like Taurus, Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, Libra, or Virgo, who are all comfortable with boredom. Your best match is a Scorpio or Sagittarius, who both take boredom as a challenge to try something new. What you hate the most about this might also include inactivity and routine, which can sometimes be a reason you end up getting bored in the first place! Make sure you’re with a partner who keeps things interesting, and maybe a little spicy.
8 Cancer Girl: Distance
Be this emotional or physical, it’s hard to tell how much of an impact distance actually turns someone off in a relationship. Usually distance is combined with any number of other things to cause a kind of destruction of the relationship. People grow distant when other things turn them off. However, that doesn’t mean it’s totally impossible to have distance within a relationship. Some people really need some distance with their significant others, or else they feel trapped and overwhelmed in the relationship. Those that prefer to stay intertwined forever? Pisces, Gemini, Libra, and Cancer. These sweet signs are actually not into having a distant partner, as any sensitive people are. They value harmony and partnership, and any sort of distance is considered a big fat no… Regardless of their partner’s sign!
7 Scorpio Girl: Poor Hygiene
Poor hygiene is relative, but for our purposes let’s let it encompass forgetting to shower, refusing deodorant, lack of teeth brushing, and forgetting to take care of any other unkempt areas of personal grooming. It’s another weird one, as we don’t actually know anyone who’s actively into poor hygiene. We hear that there are folks who like when their partner has just worked out, or has spent the day working out in the sun, but that’s not really the same. There’s something about poor hygiene that reeks of disrespect; both for themself, and you, their partner. But who’s the MOST turned off by this sometimes-literally-sticky situation of a partner with poor hygiene? Scorpio women take the cake here and are tied as the ones who get the most turned off by poor hygiene, regardless of who their partner is. They appreciate cleanliness and order, which doesn’t happen when there’s unused toothbrushes around! These ladies are dressed to the 9s almost all the time, and expect the same of their men. Plus, they’ll probably leave you if you don’t take your look seriously. They’re not trying to be mean! They’ve just got Scorpio standards.
6 Virgo Girl: Food Where It Doesn't Belong
Ahhh, the age old question; do we bring food into the bedroom, or not? Do we put a towel down? What happens if the sushi falls apart? Sometimes food can be lots of fun, and give you a lot of satisfaction. It can be goofy, delicious, and, if used properly, doesn’t usually result in discomfort or whatnot. Whether you’ve tried it or not, it’s fair to say that some people don’t consider food a turn on. It’s meant to be eaten, not played with! Virgo women are especially not turned on by food play, and will sometimes go so far as to suggest that their partner washes their hands before hitting the bedroom. Hey, we’ve all said it… Yeast infections suck, and a quick hand wash can prevent a lot of nastiness down the line. Signs that are not a good match with this food safety inspector? Leos, Aries, Aquarius, Scorpio, and Sagittarius. These folks might have dipped their spoon into the Cool Whip bucket before bed in the past, and are not the ones that mix well with a very clean Virgo.
5 Pisces Girl: Experimentation
In the bedroom things can stay vanilla, or they can have rainbow sprinkles and chocolate syrup on top; depending on what you’re into. For those folks who are Leos, Scorpios, or any other hot-headed, attention-grabbing sign, experimentation will definitely make you happy. But that’s not what we’re talking about here. Some people really don’t like experimentation. They’re not into the wild west approach, and don’t have a desire to try different things. For those quiet, romantic signs like Pisces, Taurus, Libras, and Virgos, experimentation is a big no. Pisces women are especially not into experimentation, unless it culminates in a romantic embrace. Because of your delicate nature, you appreciate love stories over the hard-hitting news; and if you’re partnered with a Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, Sagittarius, or any of the other signs that like to get rough and wild, it’s probably not going to work out. It is possible to work through it with communication, but generally experimentation is a big no for the Pisces lady.
4 Aries Women: Being Controlled
This can go two ways, so let’s look at the idea of your guy trying to control you first. For the in charge women, particularly Aries, but also including Sagittarius, Capricorn, Cancer, Leo, and Scorpio this is a big no. While they might like to toy around with the idea of being someone’s (consensual) toy, any sort of situation where you are being controlled is not going to get their blood pumping. They like to be taking their space and living life in control. And that doesn’t include being dominated. Any good partner of these signs will know that, and will adhere to all standards set by these queens. This means that in a relationship with another one of these signs, things work out really well! You two flip back and forth between domination and submission, which keeps things interesting behind closed doors and in your relationship. That’s the exception to this rule.
3 Taurus Girl: Physical Discomfort
A weirdly specific one, but still very relevant. While we support all those people that want to play around and experiment, sometimes the lack of comfort can be a good thing. Rough times are even a mood killer for someone like a Taurus, who really likes their fabrics and tactile sensations. As a sign that’s highly attuned to their tactile nature, Tauruses are poorly matched with Leos, who’ll do it despite less-than-ideal conditions, and Aquarians, who are usually focused on the bigger picture… Not the little thread count details. You’re well matched with Virgos, Pisces, Geminis, and other signs that have a high level of compassion and care, or are detail oriented. You’re also well-matched with basically anyone that likes being comfortable, regardless of sign. Rough sheets suck!
2 Sagittarius Girl: Uncensored Items
We had to put it on the list. This is a controversial one, since these types of movies are so prolific in our Western society. It sells, and even if you don’t think you watch these genres, likely you’ve seen (or read) at least one or two scenes over the years from movies, tv shows, and even written into books. While some people search out and watch it through various sites or their downloaded stashes, some other people absolutely will not. It’s dependent on your beliefs, and who you are as a person. Your personality. It also can change the dynamic of a couple. Leos, Sagittarians, Capricorns, Pisces, and Tauruses don’t tend to like this stuff. These are the signs that appreciate romance, companionship, or being the centre of attention. If you’re partnered with these signs, you might want to reconsider bringing it into the bedroom. Not to mention how fluids can splash onto a computer screen! Yuck!
1 Pisces, Libra, Virgo, Taurus, Aquarius, or Gemini
And what’s the flip side? Dominating. Teasing, rubbing, and all around taking charge. This is right up the alley of the last list of signs (Sagittarius, Capricorn, Cancer, Leo, Aries, and Scorpio), but is a huge no for the others. If you’re a Pisces, Libra, Virgo, Taurus, Aquarius, or Gemini, the thought of controlling someone turns you into a dry desert landscape, with nary a cactus flower or oasis to be seen. There’s nothing more frightful than having someone at your “mercy”, since you believe in gentle touches and equal ground in all aspects of your relationship. There’s nothing you like more than being soft, not dominating like in a war. While this might change depending on who you are, dominating is usually a no for these signs. It’s just not the way they work.
