Many of us wonder when we’re going to meet that person who makes a difference. For some people, it happens quickly. For others, it can take a little longer, and that can be super-frustrating. Nobody can predict the future, but we are lucky enough to have the stars as our guides on this one! Your zodiac sign can have a lot to do with when you fall in love, since it can influence your personality traits and likes and dislikes. We know that it’s quite common to fall in love when you least expect to, but if it’s taking ages for you and you’re dying to know when it’s going to finally happen, then read on! The exact time when each sign is going to catch some serious feelings is unknown, but the stars can give you a rough idea. Here is when you’re going to fall in love, based on your zodiac sign.
15 Aries: When You Find Somebody Strong Enough
Aries isn’t the type to fall in love with somebody whom they perceive to be weak. If you’re an Aries gal, you’re the epitome of strength. Physically, you can hold your own. Emotionally, you keep it under control and can put up with things that would traumatize others. Mentally, you are persistent and ambitious, and nobody can ever stop you from going after what you want to. Considering those strong personality traits you have, your huge heart will melt when you meet somebody who is equally strong. Though you like to lead, you won’t be satisfied with a partner who is afraid of conflict, doesn’t offer you any challenge and doesn’t chase what they want relentlessly like you do. It’s up to the Universe to decide when that’s going to happen—it might be this week or it might be a year from now. More than likely, it shouldn’t be too far away since you like to surround yourself with like-minded people. You’ll probably come across somebody who’s also physically, mentally, and emotionally tough when you’re going about your various Aries day-to-day activities!
14 Aries: When You’re Not Supposed To
Being as strong as you are, you definitely do not like to be told what to do. This goes for your partner, but it also goes for everyone else in your life! While you are extremely loyal and do not like to disappoint people, it gets under your skin when people try to order you around. So if someone in your life tells you that you can not be in a relationship, because you have got school or work commitments, you are probably going to have an urge to get out there and fall in love! You just don’t like having restrictions placed upon you, and that is totally fine. Forbidden love affairs are the most exciting anyways! You are such a rebel, Aries, we love it!
13 Taurus: When It’s Convenient
As a Taurus, you are one of the most laid-back and easy-going in the zodiac. Sure, you can be stubborn upon occasion (you are the Bull, after all!), but overall, people love being around you because you’re so easy. You don’t complain when things bother you, you don’t look for problems that aren’t there, and you steer clear of drama and trouble at all costs. This is why Taurus often makes an amazing friend! Considering all of that, you are the kind of person who will fall in love when it’s convenient for you to. A practical-minded person, you don’t often get overwhelmed by emotion and carried away by romance. You do know how to have fun, but you want to make sure that life runs as smoothly as possible, and love is just another area of life. Exactly when it’s convenient is up to the kind of person you are, but that might be when everyone else has settled down and you don’t want to be the last single girl, or when you’re ready to move out but don’t want to do it on your own. You just have a way of making everything work in your favor, without any hiccups!
12 Gemini: When You Find Somebody Who Can Keep Up With You
Gemini babies are full of energy. You are the most passionate and enthusiastic of the signs, and are the happiest when you’re on the go. It satisfies you to be doing things, trying new experiences, and being challenged, and more often than not, you need a lot of variety in your life to keep you hooked. You definitely aren’t the sort of person who enjoys routine and repetition—you need spontaneity! All of this might seem to be in direct conflict with the concept of committing to a long-term relationship with one person, but Gemini actually makes a great lover. The trick is to find somebody who can keep up with all that energy you have! Being positive and impassioned, you will probably be attracted to a number of people throughout your life. However, it won’t turn into serious love, no matter how attractive or funny they are, if they aren’t able to lead the fast-paced life that you crave. Once you meet someone who squeals with excitement at the prospect of trying a Korean cooking class, it’s only a matter of time before you catch a severe case of the feels.
11 Gemini: When Everybody Else Is
As a Gemini, you need someone who can keep up with you. But even more so, you like to keep up with everybody else! You are a social butterfly, and you’re never going to change that—you like to be kept in the loop, and riding along with everybody else. So when everybody else starts to fall in love, you definitely don’t want to be the one who’s left out. When that happens, you’ll probably start to do things that align with falling in love, like socializing more and even jumping on some dating sites. Since you’re always going to be around when your friends get together, you’ll probably meet someone hanging around all the other couples!
10 Cancer: When You Reach That Age
Cancers tend to be a buffet of feelings. As the Crab, you are wonderfully sensitive and in tune with how you feel about everything, even though you may try to hide it from others. Another hallmark trait of Cancer is that you are naturally an amazing carer and nurturer, and tend to have a longing for the family life. Getting married and having children is a standard move for many people, but for you, it’s about more than just tradition or adhering to a social norm. You are perfect spouse and mother material thanks to your compassion, patience, selflessness, and love of looking after others. So it’s likely that you will fall in love when you get to the age where it’s time to think about starting a family. That age will be depend on the specific culture you come from—for some people it’s around 25 or 26, and for others it’s after 30. For some, it’s 22 or 23. It all comes down to how you were raised and what those around you are doing. But once you get an inkling that it’s time to settle down, you will find someone to settle down with. You’ll be more open to love than ever, and ready to give it your all!
9 Leo: When The Party Is Over
If you’re a Leo, there’s a good chance that you’re the life of the party. You love socializing, meeting new people, entertaining them, being the center of attention and having a good time. There’s a huge, loving heart in your chest, and you do have a tendency to fall in love really hard. You’re generous and caring, even though you don’t always appear that way, so you do have the ability to settle down and commit to one person. However, that probably won’t happen until you’re all partied out! A bit like Gemini, you don’t like to miss out on any opportunity to have some fun and live it up, so unless you meet someone truly striking, you won’t want to give up your freedom and exciting lifestyle until you’ve had enough. That’s not to say that you can’t party and let loose when you’re in a relationship—it’s just that a few elements of that lifestyle are gone. You can’t have new flings, and depending on your partner, you can’t have a flirt when you want to. As a Leo, you’re drawn to putting yourself out there like that, so it won’t be until you’re ready to give those ways up that you’ll open yourself to seriously falling in love!
8 Virgo: When You Find Someone Up To Your Standards
Virgo, Virgo, Virgo. You are the zodiac’s resident perfectionist, and naturally, you have pretty high standards when it comes to love. Like all things in your life, you want your partner to be perfect. To be fair, you demand perfection of yourself and are highly critical when you don’t meet your own demands, so it’s not like you’re especially hard on others; you’re just picky with everything and everyone, including yourself! Some might find themselves entering relationships and then falling in love afterwards because they can’t stand being lonely or not being in a partnership, but that isn’t in the cards for you. Though you have your insecurities like everyone else, you plain and simply don’t want something that isn’t ideal, and a relationship with somebody who doesn’t tick the boxes on your list is not ideal. You have the patience and the persistence to wait for that person who is perfect for you, and when you meet them, you’ll find that vulnerable side starting to come out. Your finicky and tense Virgo exterior will soften, and you’ll open your heart. You might be in for a bit of a wait, since your standards are pretty high and people who actually meet them don’t come around every day. But rest assured that when it does happen for you, it will truly be perfect.
7 Libra: When Somebody Spoils You
When the outside world looks at a Libra, they see a diplomatic and balanced person. By nature, Libras are all about equality and make the best judges because they are extremely fair. What the world might not know about Libra though, is that they are closeted romantics who live with their heart on their sleeve! If you’re a Libra, you have a tendency to shed away that level-headed attitude and lose yourself in love, because it’s your weakness. It doesn’t take a lot for you to fall in love since it’s such an important part of your life, and little displays of affection from someone you’re dating can end up winning over your heart. You have a taste for the finer things, so when a love interest presents you with some intense jewels, the combination of romance, affection, and luxury will make you weak at the knees, and it won’t be long before you’re falling. Having said that, you aren’t a shallow person, and if a date spoils you with other things, you’re just as likely to open your heart. You’re a sucker for romantic dates, even when no money was spent, and gifts as simple as a stray rose plucked from a garden.
6 Libra: When Somebody Saves You
Being the romantic that you are, you are likely to catch some serious feeling when somebody saves you in some way. It is not that you are a damsel in distress who needs saving, but nobody can deny that being saved in any way by some kind of hero figure is mildly appealing at least! Especially to someone as impressionable and idealistic as you! You are a fool for love, and meeting your own Jack Dawson or Noah Calhoun will probably melt your heart. Seriously though, who can blame you Libra! Anyone would be lucky enough to be saved by someone, and for you, that is exactly what makes you fall in love! So go out there and start looking for that hero of yours.
5 Scorpio: When Somebody Understands You
Considering the fact that Scorpio does nothing haphazardly, it shouldn’t take you long to fall in real love. You’re not the type to casually date for the sake of it, and when you do start talking to someone, you tend to be in it for the long run. An intense person in many ways, you take nothing lightly and become emotionally invested in just about everything, so you’re prone to falling deep and hard. At the same time, you’re quick to turn people away when they don’t understand the complex person that you are; you understand time is precious and you won’t continue to see someone with whom you know there’s no future. So when you do stumble across somebody who actually gets all of you and accepts it, it’s going to be hard to stop yourself from falling! Not everyone can understand your passion and intensity, and in your essence, you really care about the world and its people. You become moved over things that others wouldn’t think twice about, and pursue issues until they’re solved. When you meet someone who appreciates that, it will be like a green light for your heart.
4 Sagittarius: When You Know Who You Are
Sagittarius is naturally the most spiritual sign of the zodiac. Friendly, curious, and adventurous, you are self-secure enough to not need a relationship for the sake of it. You tend to be fairly independent and can definitely survive without relying on another person, and in all honesty, you might view a relationship as a kind of baggage that stops you from seeing the world and having experiences. Of course, love is a wonderful experience in itself, and being as social as you are, you don’t want to miss out on that either! You just want to make sure that it doesn’t happen before you’re ready for it, or stop you from discovering who you are and the world around you. It’s important for you to know yourself really well before you commit to another—you want to know what’s important to you, what your values are, where you want to go in the future, and what makes you happy before you attach yourself to anybody else. Once all that is clear, you will be in a position to fall in love and catch all the feelings in the world! For somebody as spiritual and curious as Sagittarius, it shouldn’t take too long to find out.
3 Capricorn: When You’ve Achieved Your Goals
A definite trait of a Capricorn is that you know what you want, and you will literally do anything to achieve it. There are quite a few ambitious signs in the zodiac, but you give them all a run for their money! You have the patience and persistence to work for years on the same projects, never losing any of your passion or craving for them. Success is quite important to you, and you’re likely to have many career and personal goals that you want to achieve. Like Sagittarius, you might perceive relationships to be something of a burden that just get in the way of achieving those goals you have, and your love life probably reflects that. If you’re wondering why you haven’t found the one yet, it is likely to be because you subconsciously don’t want to fail at your goals, and so you aren’t opening up to people and letting yourself develop feelings. What’s the answer? Achieve your goals! You don’t have to succeed at everything before you find someone, but you probably won’t fall in love until you’ve got the basics sorted out—once you have a stable job and a few other achievements under your belt, you’ll be able to relax!
2 Aquarius: When Nobody Expects You To
Aquarius is a unique sign in that you honestly don’t care what people think of you. While some signs do better with criticism and judgment than others, all of them ultimately care just a little bit… except you! Because of this, other signs might find themselves getting into relationships before they’re ready because they’re tired of being asked why they’re still single or because that’s what everyone else is doing. You, on the other hand, hate conforming to the norm. In fact, if everyone else is doing something, it actually turns you off. So rather than falling in love when society expects you to do, it will happen for you out of the blue, when nobody else is expecting it. Subconsciously, you like to shock people with your choices, and there’s no better way to shock those closest to you than suddenly falling in love. You can become distant and get scared away when someone tries to force you into committing, even if they’re a person outside the relationship. Therefore, you will be the most comfortable and ready to catch feelings when there’s no pressure from any source.
1 Pisces: When You Find Somebody Who Lets You Be Free
Not everybody can make a Pisces fall in love. When you find somebody who has the one quality you are looking for, you won’t be able to resist! Basically, your partner has to let you be free. In a literal sense, you don’t do well when people restrict your movements or when you’re boxed into a house or office for the majority of your time. But you also won’t fall in love with someone unless they let you be free mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, to think about what you want and feel what you like. You tend to be a dreamer, and require the space to spend time fantasizing, creating things in your head and then eventually, bringing them to life. It’s important that you follow the flow of your life and aren’t held back by anyone or anything, which is why you won’t be able to fall in love with a person who’s going to be like an anchor at your feet. And being as intuitive as you are, you’ll be able to tell straight away who to let yourself fall for!
