Some of you just can’t seem to help yourselves…
It’s the sad truth, but people cheat on the one they love every single day. No one is safe from it. Not you. Not your best friends. Not your favorite tv character. And certainly not your favorite celebrity couples.
Of course, everyone has their own definition of cheating, and there are a million different actions that can fall under the category of infidelity.
Maybe for you, just flirting with someone other than your partner is adultery. Or maybe something they thought was just a “harmless” peck on the check counts in your eyes. Or maybe, in your opinion, the only thing that qualifies is full-on sexual intercourse.
Then there’s the age-old question of why do people cheat in the first place?
Is it because they’re looking for someone to spend their life with and someone they believe they’ll be happy with forever, and they need to check in and see if maybe the grass out there really is greener? But if they’re not fully happy, why don’t they just end the relationship rather than betray the one they’re with?
Some people say they never thought they would cheat, but then they got an itch and HAD to scratch it.
Some claim they were bored in their relationship and thought sneaking around with someone new would help spice things up in their sex life at home.
Then there are those people blame alcohol, saying they were so drunk they didn’t even know what they were doing — the other person came on strong and they didn’t know how to stop it.
In the end, though, no matter what the reasoning might be, there is always one result: heartbreak.
I’ve never been cheated on, but I’ve watched people cheat and I’ve watched it happen to my friends.
And one thing is for sure. It is ALWAYS a mess.
In order to prepare ourselves for the real possibility that this could happen to us, it’s important to learn the common red flags that someone is likely to be a cheater ahead of time.
One of the tell-tale signs that someone is likely to cheat not just once, but over and over and over again, might be their zodiac sign.
I’m not saying that everyone who belongs to one astrological grouping is going to cheat no matter what, and I’m not saying that no one who falls under those signs that are less likely to cheat will end up doing so. Like I said, no one is truly safe.
However, there do seem to be some signs that are more prone to the temptations of others, and taking a closer look at the stars can help us better understand why.
So here are each of the sun signs ranked in order from most to least likely to be serial cheaters and why:
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
This will be shocking, but the zodiac sign most likely to cheat is Pisces. Normally sensitive and super emotional, they can’t help but act upon the smallest mood swing. If they’re mad at you and they’re out for the night, there’s no saying what might happen. At the same time, they’re less likely to leave a relationship they’re unhappy due to their fear of hurting the one they’re with. Ironically, they may choose instead to stray instead. Maybe deep down inside they’re hoping to be caught.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini is super needy in a relationship, so if you can’t give her round-the-clock attention, she’ll find someone who can. She can be pretty indecisive so she likes to have options, and if there’s still something you’re giving her that she wants to keep around, she’ll keep you around in order to get it. She wants it all and if one or two partners can’t give her that, who is to say that she won’t go out to find a third.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras are huge flirts, which is why so many people are hesitant to enter into relationships with them to begin with. And maybe they are right to be hesitant. While you would think the flirting would stop once Libra is in a committed relationship, it doesn’t. And even though it’s usually harmless, sometimes it does go too far.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Not only is Leo dramatic, but she needs to be the center of attention at all times. If you’re not treating her like the queen she believes she is, and especially if she feels like you are beginng to ignore her, she will do everything she can think of in order to make sure you start paying attention to her again.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius might not physically cheat, but rather may start sending flirty texts to an old fling or leading someone on during a night out in order to see how many free drinks she can get out of it. And while it’s never physical, some people consider this to be emotional infidelity, so we’re pretty sure her partner wouldn’t be too happy if they knew this was going on.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio can be the most loving and committed partner you ever have and stay that way forever — as long as you do the same for her. The moment she finds out that you have been unfaithful to her even in the smallest way possible, all bets are off. You have lost her loyalty, and Scorpio is NOT opposed to revenge. Watch out!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn looks for something very specific in her relationships — to gain as much as she can from them. This means she is looking for happiness, support, stability, and maybe even status. Because all of this can be hard to find in one partner, when she does find it, she will not be one to risk losing it.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius has some pretty high moral standards, and would never want to do anything that is going to ruin her reputation. Don’t be surprised if early on in a relationship Sagittarius suggests an open relationship and makes it clear that she plans on seeing other people. When she’s open and honest about what she’s doing and what she is expecting in your relationship at this point, it’s not cheating.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo has never even thought of straying from the person she is with. Maybe it’s because with her already busy plate she can’t even think about sneaking around with someone else. And in the end, if Virgo was unhappy, she would tell you and end the relationship rather than cheat on you. She’s not a fan of drama and she is not about to be the source of it in her own life.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The reason Taurus won’t cheat is that staying faithful to her partner benefits her the most. Having one relationship means only having to make an effort with one person, and there is no extra energy being spent sneaking around and coming up with excuses on the spot. Yes, Taurus is honestly too damn lazy to even think about cheating. But that’s a good thing, right? Selfish, maybe, but good.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is the second least likely of all the zodiac signs to cheat. Family is the most important thing to her and she is always looking for steady and emotional support. She likes to feel comfortable and secure, and cheating would make her feel anxious and on edge all the time. Because some of these reasons also come off as benefiting only her, she doesn’t take the final spot on the list, but she will not cheat and that is a fact you can rely on.
Aries (March 21- April 19)
Aries is committed to her partner without a doubt. Sometimes she may come off as rude and harsh, though, as she’s not the best when it comes to expressing her love and commitment to her partner. But that doesn’t mean she is off somewhere having an affair. She is loyal through and through. Plus, she knows how horrible she would feel if she was the one being cheated on and she could never put another person through that — ever.
