You love him, you do, but sometimes… It’s okay, I understand the feeling. Relationships can bring us some of the happiest moments of our lives, bringing us together with our teammate and partner in crime. They are there to support us when times are challenging, and act as our cheerleader when we need that extra boost. That being said, no one promised it would be easy!
You are going to face your challenges and times of trial, we all do. This may refer to a major blow out, a struggling time that you aren’t sure you can overcome, or an outside source of stress that plays a significant impact on your relationship. These major trials and struggles test how much we care for one another and just how committed we are to face life together, in the good times and the bad. Then there are the little things…
I’m not talking about anything that you likely saw as a make it or break it early on, in fact, these little personality quirks and habits may have even been laughable at one point or another. However, as time goes on they begin to grate on you. They are the small annoyances that continually creep up, ruining your feelings of bliss by leaving you frustrated and agitated. Now don’t kid yourself, we all have them, even you. However, recognizing these little frustrations can help us to accept them and move forward.
What does your man do that makes him so hard to love? His zodiac sign may reveal the answer…
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You were likely drawn to your man’s determination and independence early on, but there is such thing as being too independent in a relationship. When you started dating, you were looking for someone to be your teammate, and yet there are days where you feel as though you are still single. Why is that? He is so independent that he will sometimes go on with his life on his own without even considering how you may fit into it. It may seem silly, but you will need to remind him once in awhile that you’re there.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
If you know anything about the zodiac, then this one isn’t going to come as a shocker. Your may is incredibly stubborn and hard-headed, determined that knows everything about anything. Even a mention that there may be another option out there is enough to frustrate him and start an argument. He has his set way of doing things, and there’s no flexibility. Honestly, you can try to reason, but you really should pick your battles with this one.
Gemini (May 22 – Jun 21)
While he’s positive, friendly and upbeat, even your Gemini man has his flaws. For a Gemini, this largely revolves around the fact that they are so easily distracted. His mind is everywhere, and this often leads to procrastinating on even the most important of tasks. If you are looking to get something serious done, like dropping off a payment for that super important bill, you may want to take care of it yourself. He means well, but there’s just so much excitement in the world!
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
You chose an incredibly compassionate and sensitive man, one that wears his heart on his sleeve. While you were likely drawn to the fact that he wasn’t afraid to share how he was feeling and show you just how much he loved you, you may not have been prepared for how clingy he would become. When a Cancer enters into a relationship, they have found the new center of their universe. You need to create healthy boundaries because he certainly isn’t going to.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
While his confident charm and charisma are likely what won you over, there will come a time where this ego is just too much for anyone to take. Most relationships involve two people in love with one another, but you often find yourself wondering who he loves more – you or himself. He often becomes so wrapped up in his personal needs, wants and desires that he forgets about yours entirely. Don’t be afraid to stand up and establish ground rules in your relationship.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
Your man is a perfectionist, there is no better way to describe it. He sets his expectations for what he will achieve in life almost impossibly high, and this is what drives him to succeed. The problem is that he is always striving to live up to these expectations without ever even considering taking a break. Furthermore, the expectations don’t just relate to himself, as he expects the same level of perfection from you. You may need to remind him from time to time that you are only human.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
A Libra man desires nothing more than to create peace and harmony everywhere that he goes. With this as the primary focus, he will go to great lengths to avoid conflict. Often, that means burying his own feelings and opinions away to avoid offending you or anyone else. Unfortunately, burying your feelings doesn’t mean that they actually go away. Instead, they continue to fester beneath the surface creating resentment, bitterness, and frustration. Not opening up will actually cause more conflict than if he had just been honest in the first place.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22)
When you first fell for your Scorpio man, you were likely drawn to his ‘bad boy’ persona. Mysterious and a little rough around the edges, once he caught your attention there was no turning back. However, as you actually start to spend more time together that ‘bad boy’ rebellion can become both frustrating and embarrassing. He often forgets about the basics of human decently, like manners and common courtesy, and he isn’t afraid to make a scene in public. You feel as though you’re apologizing for him every time you step foot out of the house.
Sagittarius (Nov 23 – Dec 21)
Always the adventurer, a Sagittarius man spends his whole life seeking excitement and new experiences. He focuses on the joys in life, refusing to be saddled down by things like responsibility and commitment. If you got him to enter into a relationship, congratulations, that’s the hardest step! Now you need to learn to accept that he’s not one to take anything seriously. You can try to force him to buckle down and focus, but even if he’s looking you right in the eye during the conversation, his mind is likely somewhere else.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20)
He may refer to himself as a ‘realist’ but let’s be honest, a Capricorn man can be a real downer sometimes. He focuses all of his attention on the data and the facts, highlighting all the ways that every situation can go wrong. While this can be helpful in the workplace, or while planning out a major life decision (like which house to buy), on a daily basis it is just draining. He can suck the joy out of any situation with his ‘helpful dose of reality.’
Aquarius (Jan 21 – Feb 18)
While an Aquarius man may personally experience a lot of emotions, he isn’t one to open up. Afraid of being hurt, he built a wall around his heart a long time ago and even the idea of bringing down that barrier can be frightening. Instead, he keeps everyone at a distance at all times, including you. This can make it incredibly difficult to connect on a deeper level, causing your relationship to move much slower than you are prepared and leaving you wondering if you will ever break through to him.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Romantic and sensitive, he has created a picture in his mind of the dream life, and there is nothing more that he wants than to make that a reality. Unfortunately, his dream of the perfect happy life is far from realistic, and he doesn’t handle any setbacks or negativity everywhere. Even viewing something negative on the news that has no real impact on his life can set him off, after all, he’s a bit of an emotional basket case. Be prepared for mood swings and drama if you’re going to make a relationship with him work but understand that all he really wants is his fairy tale happily-ever-after with you.
