Your Biggest Insecurity About Love, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


You feel insecure about not having your energy and efforts matched in a relationship.

Aries, you’re an incredibly intense and passionate individual and you want your life to be exciting. So when you think about love and developing a relationship with someone, you start to fear whether or not they can match your energy. You fear being bored.


You get anxious about the uncertainty, especially in the beginning stages.

Taurus, you value stability and security. You won’t settle down into a relationship with just anyone–you want to be able to trust them first. So at the start of the relationship, you fear everything. Can I trust them? Will this be stable in the long run?


You’re always afraid you’re settling down with the wrong person.

Gemini, you struggle to commit not because you don’t want to commit but because you’re afraid of settling down with the wrong person. You analyze every single detail of a given relationship to death and you’re constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop.


You’re afraid to let anyone in because you’re afraid they’ll leave.

Cancer, you have an incredibly caring nature, and while that is a beautiful quality to have, it also makes you more susceptible to getting your feelings hurt. Because of this, you portray yourself to be quite cold and distant at times and you do this as a means of protection.


You struggle with insecurity, period.

Sorry, Leo, but whether you want to admit it or not, you are deeply insecure. Your constant desire for wanting to be appreciated and admired and validated isn’t healthy. You can’t expect validation from your partner. You have to give that admiration and validation to yourself.


You are afraid you won’t find someone that will live up to your standards.

Virgo, having standards is important but you have to remember that no one is perfect. No one is going to check off every box, but the right person will check off a good portion of them. The sooner you accept that no person and no love is perfect, the sooner you will find the person you’re meant to be with.


You worry there will always be someone better.

Libra, you tend to people-please your way through relationships. You neglect yourself not only because you don’t want to disrupt the peace, but you’re afraid of putting yourself first because you fear that it will be the wrong thing. You believe that someone is always better or more deserving than you.


You fear opening up your heart only to be betrayed in the end.

Scorpio, you can be quite mysterious, yet intense, when it comes to your emotions. You don’t like to show all your cards because you fear that someone could hurt you. You’d rather leave before you get left. You love love, but you don’t love the risk.


You’re afraid to settle down because you believe this means losing your independence.

Sagittarius, you are adventurous. While this is a beautiful quality to have, it can also be your downfall. You fear settling down in love because you don’t want to lose that independence. You secretly crave love, but you don’t want to be tied down to one person and one place forever.


You’re afraid of wasting your time on the “wrong person.”

Capricorn, you are all about your life plan. You’re more focused on your career and becoming a success. You won’t get into a relationship with just anyone–you want to be 100% sure. But you’re afraid to make a mistake, afraid that you’ll waste your precious time and energy on the wrong person.


You have doubts you’ll ever find someone on the same wavelength as you.

Aquarius, you love how different you are. But you can’t help but feel anxious about whether or not you’ll find love because of your uniqueness. You can’t help but doubt whether you’ll find love with someone who is just as different and who loves your individuality too.


You’re afraid of being taken advantage of.

Pisces, you’re aware of how compassionate and empathetic you are. You’re also aware that sometimes people can take advantage of that. You go through life living in fear that the next person you connect with will just use you.
