4 Zodiacs Who Need Alone Time In Relationships

Some zodiacs will want to spend every waking moment with their partner. They would rather sit in silence on opposite ends of the couch than be apart from each other because spending time together brings them comfort. But other signs need a little more space. They need time to themselves or they’re going to start feeling suffocated. Here are some zodiacs who need alone time in relationships:


Aries are a fierce, independent sign. They are used to being on their own and don’t need approval or validation in order to feel good about themselves. In fact, if their lives get too tied up with someone else’s, they are going to feel suffocated. This sign needs the freedom to do whatever they want whenever they want. That doesn’t mean that they are going to disrespect their partner’s wishes or that they don’t value quality time together. They simply need some time to miss their partner. If they’re together every hour of the day, then they are going to grow bored and restless. This sign needs some variety. They need some time alone in addition to time spent with their partner, no matter how much they love this person.


Aquarius are one of the most independent signs in the zodiac. They spend a lot of time on their own, whether they’re in relationships or are single. If they’re with a partner who demands too much from them, they are going to feel suffocated. This sign needs the freedom to pursue their own passions, hobbies, and interests. They need a partner who has their own life and allows them to have their own life too. If they feel like they’re obligated to spend every waking moment with their partner, they are going to grow to resent them. They are going to start feeling like hanging out is a chore when it’s supposed to feel like a privilege. Aquarius aren’t asking for much. Just some time alone to focus on their own thoughts and do what they want to do.


Even though Leos want to feel like the center of your universe, there can be too much of a good thing. This sign wants the freedom to have their own friends, their own passions, their own life. While they might love spending every second together early on in the relationship, they aren’t going to want this to continue years into the relationship. They don’t want their identity to be that closely tied with another person. They want to remain an individual. They want to do their own thing. This sign will be flattered that you want to spend so much time together, but they won’t want their whole life to be about their relationship. There are other things that matter too. They want to have it all, not only you.


Scorpio, you aren’t the biggest people person, and that isn’t going to magically change once you enter a relationship. Even though you will want to spend a big chunk of time with your partner, you need space too. You need alone time so you can work on your own stuff without feeling the pressure to entertain them or keep them happy. You have always valued your alone time, your quiet time, your time dedicated to you and only you. It’s not selfish. It’s only human.
