Making the first move can be terrifying. You can never be 100% sure what the response will be. Will they be receptive, or will they reject you in a spectacularly embarrassing way? That uncertainty keeps a lot of us from ever being the first one to ask someone out or show we’re into them. The true failure is never even trying. So this week, four zodiac signs have a task ahead of them: Make the first move. Are you one of the following four zodiac signs?
Most relationships you’ve been in started because the other person made the move. That’s okay! If anything, it shows that people tend to enjoy your company. But it also means that you’ll only end up with people who are bolder and braver than you. This week, try channeling some of that boldness yourself. Is there a chance you’ll be rejected? Sure! But if other people can do it and survive, why not you?
You’re really good at talking yourself out of doing something. You use your empathy skills as an excuse. “Well, I don’t get the vibe that they’re into me, so I won’t make a move. I’d just get rejected.” Babe, you don’t know everything. Some people are hard to read. Just because you feel like something is true, that doesn’t mean it is. Honestly, that’s probably just your fear talking. Make the first move anyway. You’ll either be pleasantly surprised or you’ll be validated that you were correct to begin with.
You’re really good at making concrete excuses why you won’t make a move. Maybe you’ll say that work is taking up too much of your life and you just don’t have time for dating. Or maybe you’ll say that you don’t want to be with someone who makes you do all the work. Babe, you’re getting ahead of yourself. Just make your move and go from there. I know it’s tough when you don’t know what happens next, but life is rarely crystal clear.
You don’t usually make the first move. It feels too vulnerable. There’s such a high chance that you’ll get hurt. And the idea of revealing how you feel about someone makes your skin crawl. But imagine a world where everyone who felt that way never made a move? No one would be dating anyone! You have more bravery than you give yourself credit for, Scorpio. Go for it. And if the worst happens and they say “no,” you’ll realize that the rejection doesn’t feel as terrible as you were making it out to be.
