When you meet someone new, it's hard not to let your imagination get the best of you. Once you become infatuated with a person, most people will jump the gun and have their rose-colored glasses firmly in place.
Although they may seem like the perfect partner, as your relationship progresses, you might start to realize there are some serious flaws in your union.
But sometimes the demise of a relationship isn't anybody's fault, as it just comes down to a lack of compatibility. Even though there is no way to determine if you and your significant other are a mismatch right off the bat, a good indicator is what your respective astrological signs are.
It might not seem like a perfect science, but the traits your sign carries does typically reveal what you're like as a person and what you look for in a lifelong companion.
If you and your partner don't have similar personalities or goals, a future together will be pretty bleak.
However, if you want to know who you're unsuited for in advance, take a look at these terribly incompatible pairings.
Aries & Cancer
Known for their aggressive nature, an Aries' fierce and energetic attitude is bound to overwhelm a sensitive Cancer, who tend to prefer a more conservative partner.
As one of the most incompatible matches out there, an Aries is more likely to call the shots while dating a Cancer, in spite of the need for their relationship to be an equal partnership.
A Cancer will often latch onto an Aries, which won't bode well with the latter, as they crave their independence in their every day lives. It isn't fair to ask either party to make significant concessions to their key character traits, and if they do so, it won't be long until they begin to resent one another.
Taurus & Sagittarius
Although it's true that this pairing has unquestionable chemistry due to their adventurous spirit and creative nature, it'll only be a matter of time before disparities between them start to show.
For instance, a Taurus crave stability and structure, while a Sagittarius revels in their freedom, making it difficult for the former to accept the latter's lifestyle and constant need for change.
However, even though Tauruses are stubborn individuals, if they learn to compromise with their partner, a Sagittarius' optimism and patience could potentially help the couple maintain a peaceful relationship.
Gemini & Virgo
Some of a great things about a Virgo is their quick wit and logical thinking, which is bound to attract an intellectual Gemini. While their initial courting may seem like a match made in heaven, once these two signs settle into a relationship, their differences will inevitably begin to show.
A Gemini craves stability, while a Virgo will be quick to judge their significant others, and if they don't deem them long-term relationship material, they'll be prone to develop a flaky attitude towards the Twins.
A Virgo prefers a low-key partner, but a Gemini will go out of their way to publicly show their affections to the ones they love, which will definitely make the Earth sign uncomfortable.
However, there is a chance for this pairing to work if a Virgo is able to improve their communication skills and a Gemini is willing to accept their partner's independent nature.
Leo & Pisces
Since a Leo is known for their headstrong and impulsive nature, a Pisces won't feel inclined to go out of their way to start a courtship.
A Leo will be turned off by a Pisces who puts pressure on their significant other to immediately form a powerful bond, as the Lion loves to play the field and is known to have difficulties settling down.
But since Leos go out of their way to get exactly what they want, if a Pisces displays a relaxed and go with the flow attitude, they'll eventually attract a Leo's attention. In this courtship, a Pisces must remember time is not of the essence, and good things happen to those who wait.
Libra & Capricorn
Since Libras are known for their calming demeanor, dating a Capricorn may end in absolute disaster. They're lighthearted individuals compared to Capricorns, who frequently exhibit a pushy attitude.
Libras crave a balanced and loving relationship, so if a Capricorn either becomes too domineering or on the opposite end, careless about their partner, their union will quickly deteriorate.
As the Goat strives to achieve more academic goals, they're also more likely look down on a Libra's greater appreciation for the arts and beauty.
Finding perspective in this relationship is imperative, since they genuinely enjoy spending time together. If they keep in mind the importance of harmony and acceptance, and this pairing stands a fighting chance to succeed.
Aquarius & Scorpio
Even though it's undeniable that Aquariuses and Scorpios are kindred spirits, it may just be their downfall.
These two signs are stubborn individuals, so if they have opposing views on any major issue, their relationship will crumble before it even begins.
Since a Scorpio needs to feel that they're in control of their lives, they rarely appreciate their partners questioning any of their decisions, which can be a difficult challenge for an Aquarius - who are known for being incredibly opinionated.
While the chances for this union to succeed aren't the best, there is hope. If a Scorpio and Aquarius want their relationship to flourish, it's crucial for both parties to accept each other's views on varying subject matters, even if they deem them inherently wrong. Sometimes it's a dispute that cannot be overcome, so the pair must be prepared to potentially go their separate ways.
