People born under the cardinal Fire zodiac sign of Aries are incredibly outgoing and love socializing. They are lively, energetic and extremely extroverted, so they actively seek out the company of other people. When it comes to romance, there are periods in their life when they avoid committing to one partner because they’d rather enjoy the freedom that comes with being single. However, they’re always on the watch for new romantic challenges; life without them can be unbearably tedious for an Aries. Learn more about the Aries zodiac sign.


People belonging to the fixed Earth zodiac sign of Taurus are not particularly outgoing. They generally prefer spending time in the quiet of their home to socializing. At the same time, their ruler is Venus, the planet of relationships, so they rarely stay single for long periods of time. Taurus’ dream is to find a partner to commit to and enjoy life with, sealed off from the rest of the world. Learn more about the Taurus zodiac sign.


People born under the mutable Air zodiac sign of Gemini are averse to solitude. They thrive on interacting with other people. They don’t enjoy spending time alone, because being alone makes them feel lonely. They avoid committing to long-term romantic relationships, but they always make sure to be surrounded by other people – be they friends, acquaintances or potential romantic interests.

People born under the cardinal Water zodiac sign of Cancer are generally very fond of solitude. They tend to isolate themselves from the world for long periods of time, during which they mostly stay at home. They’re not big on going out and socializing.

Those born under the Fire zodiac sign of Leo tend to be extroverted and extremely sociable. They don’t appreciate solitude. They prefer to be around other people, because it is in the company of others that they can express their generosity. And of course, given that their zodiac sign is associated with the passion of romantic love, they also constantly seek out new romantic adventures. For Leo, a life devoid of romance is a life devoid of meaning. Learn more about the Leo zodiac sign.


Due to their need for independence and personal space, people born under the mutable Earth zodiac sign of Virgo can be quite solitary sometimes. At the same time, though, their ruler is Mercury, the planet of communication, so they rarely isolate themselves from the world for too long. They are very selective in how they choose their friends, and tend to associate themselves with people who bring out their generous side and with whom they can share their ideas. When it comes to romance, they prefer being single to settling for a partner who doesn’t appreciate or understand them. Learn more about the Virgo zodiac sign.
