Modern dating is complicated. If you act too eager, then you might get called clingy – but if you act too distant, then the other person might lose interest. Sometimes, it’s impossible to figure out what the right move to make is. Here are some zodiacs who are confused AF by modern dating:
Cancers believe in (some) more traditional, old fashioned dating rules. They don’t love the idea of texting someone for weeks to get to know them when they could go out and have a conversation face-to-face. They usually aren’t big on casual hookups either. They want a real commitment, which means they want to put a label on the relationship as soon as possible. They want to know that this person is serious about them and isn’t seeing a bunch of other people on the side. Modern dating confuses them because they never know when they’re allowed to say those three little words or when it’s going to scare someone away. They want something long-term – but they feel like a lot of people around them aren’t on the same page.
Modern dating confuses Capricorns because they are straightforward. When they want something (or someone), they are honest about it. They never tell little white lies in order to spare feelings or pretend not to care to look more appealing. They will never understand why people send so many mixed signals while dating, and they definitely don’t understand how to interpret those mixed signals. They wish people would be more transparent about where they stand. They would rather be rejected upfront than wonder how the other person feels for months.
Aquarius are unique. They don’t play by the rules, which is why modern dating confuses them. If they feel a spark with someone, then they’re going to tell that person ASAP. They aren’t going to hold back their feelings in order to look cool or laidback. They don’t see the point in dancing around their feelings. They would rather get everything out in the open so the relationship can start on an honest foot. Lying to each other doesn’t make any sense from their point of view.
Pisces are incredibly sweet. They would do anything for their partners and want to spoil them rotten. But in modern dating, they can come across as clingy. Pisces don’t understand why some people consider it a bad thing to admit that they care. They don’t see the point in playing hard to get or pretending to be heartless. Pisces wear their hearts on their sleeves. They shout their love from the rooftops. They don’t understand why modern dating encourages them to be fake because they are always their most authentic selves.
Aries aren’t going to sugarcoat anything. They aren’t going to pretend to be someone they’re not in order to get your attention. They’re going to be unapologetically themselves. They don’t understand modern dating rules – and frankly, they don’t want to. They want to do their own thing, even if it means staying single. They would rather stay true to themselves than stress themselves out trying to say and do the right thing every second of the day.
