The things the star signs hate and the things they love in a relationship
What does each of the star signs love or hate in a relationship? Is this person a good match for you? Can you meet their needs? Do you fit the bill? Can you two make things work? Or will you fail to live up to each other’s expectations? Here’s a brief breakdown of the things each star sign hates, as well as the things they love, in a one-one relationship.
What do the star signs look for in a relationship?
Is Gemini a good match for you? Can you meet a Capricorn's needs? Do you fit the bill of what a Leo looks for in a relationship? Here's our take on what each star sign looks for in a relationship.
What turns them off: Aries hates being told what to do. They also hate being told what they can or can’t do. They are extremely stubborn and opinionated, so telling them they’re wrong or trying to change their mind (about anything) can really frustrate them.
What keeps them coming back for more: They love receiving compliments and feeling admired. They also love being told they’re right!
What turns them off: Taurus can’t stand feeling insecure, so they have very little tolerance for behaviours that trigger their jealousy. They need to feel like they can trust you. Don’t even think about flirting with other people in front of them!
What keeps them coming back for more: They love being with someone who shares their taste for comfort, and spending as much time with them as possible.

What turns them off: Gemini hates being interrogated about where they’ve been or where they’re going. They’re also put off by the idea of having the same social circle as their partner. Avoid coming off as clingy or co-dependent.
What keeps them coming back for more: They like being friends with their lover. They also like being intellectually intrigued and knowing they can count on their significant other to speak their mind.
What turns them off: Unless you’re trying to get them depressed and trigger their suicidal tendencies, don’t ever make the mistake of giving your Cancer the cold shoulder. They’ll take it as a sign that you want to call it quits, and they abhor feeling unloved.
What keeps them coming back for more: They need love and affection and love and stability and love and permanence… and love. They adore being constantly reassured that their partner only has eyes for them.

What keeps them coming back for more: They find it hard to resist people who treasure them and shower them with admiration!
What turns them off: Virgo hates having their stuff rearranged. They are obsessed with order, and expect to find everything in the exact same place where they left it! They also find it hard to tolerate delays and indecisiveness.
What keeps them coming back for more: They love feeling like they can confide in their partner. They also like being shown love through actions instead of words.

What turns them off: Scorpio hates feeling like they can’t trust their partner. Avoid doing or saying anything that they might perceive as suspicious or emotionally manipulative, or you can kiss them goodbye!
What keeps them coming back for more: They don’t expect to be showered with extravagant praise, but do love it when their other half shows appreciation for their determination and strength of character.

What turns them off: Sagittarius shudders at the thought of a relationship where the two partners are attached at the hip. They also detest being pressured to commit for the long term.
