Whether you're a die-hard astrology fan or just casually check your horoscope for some free entertainment, most of us know there's a lot to be said in the stars. One of the most commonly researched areas when it comes to astrology is relationships—is anyone else guilty of Google searching compatibility charts as soon as they find out their new boo's sign? I know I'm guilty, and I will willingly admit I let the stars play a huge role in my love life.

Unfortunately, not everything written in the stars is great. There can be a major dark side. No sign is perfect, in fact, we all have some pretty toxic traits. Here are the most toxic trait each sign holds in a relationship.

1. Aries - No patience.

Relationships require patience. You need to be willing to wait on your partner, whether it's for them to show up to a date or to alter their mindset on a topic. However, Aries are known for having little to no patience. They'll get upset if you're late to dinner and don't have the understanding in their personality to wait on you to come around, which may ultimately be their fault.

2. Taurus - Their stubbornness.

Ah, one of the most cliche of all zodiac stereotypes—the Taurus and their stubbornness. However, it's true! Taurus are very my way or no way type of people, which is bound to cause some conflict in their relationships. Once a Taurus gets their mind set on something, there's no way to get them to budge.

3. Gemini - Their anxiety.

Geminis have twin personalities, and balancing that can leave them an anxious mess. They overthink and get easily overwhelmed, which may quickly lead to trouble in paradise. Loving a Gemini means understanding their overthinking, overreacting, and all of the bad days.

4. Cancer - Their extreme mood swings.

One minute, a Cancer can be completely on cloud nine and as happy as can be and the next they could be yelling in your face. It's rough. Dealing with this happy one moment, upset the next personality can be a struggle. Cancers feel everything very intensely, which can be a good thing in many different elements, however, loving an overly emotional partner who swings like crazy can quickly cause problems.

5. Leo - How dramatic they are.

Ah, Leo. The ultimate drama queen. All of a Leo's emotions are very intensified, which means the highs and lows of a relationship can never be just that. They're much more intense. This can be a good thing (kind of...) when a Leo is in love, but it can also quickly turn very toxic when they're so immersed in the relationship they can't breathe.

6. Virgo - Their need to be in control.

If you like a balance between control in a relationship, don't date a Virgo. They like to pull all the ropes and keep the power, which can leave their partners feeling very powerless.

7. Libra - Manipulation.

Libras can be quite the charmer, and they know exactly how to use that charm to get exactly what you want. Ever have that old fling that seems to always convince you to come over even when you don't want to? Check their birth chart, because they're probably a Libra. Libras know exactly how to use their sweet words to get you on their side.

8. Scorpio - Jealousy.

Scorpio experiences love very deeply, much more deeply than many of the other signs. However, that means they're also experiencing the dark side of love deeply as well. If you're dating a Scorpio, you best believe any opposite-sex friend of yours will have them feeling highly jealous, and we all know how damaging jealousy can be to a relationship.

9. Sagittarius - Their immaturity.

If you can't be with someone who doesn't know how to grow up, don't date a Sagittarius. They're very goofy and young-minded, meaning they typically approach relationships in an immature way. Good luck with that one.

10. Capricorn - Being conceited.

High maintenance is an understatement when it comes to a Capricorn. They have very high standards. Capricorns always think that they are right and can be quite the conceited sign. Being enough for a Capricorn can be a struggle in itself, and staying enough can also be quite the challenge.

11. Aquarius - Selfishness.

Aquarius are known for being very selfish people. They think of themselves first in nearly every situation. An Aquarius partner needs to take the lead and be able to think of themselves and their own problems before the relationship's problems, and if they don't have the freedom to do this, there may quickly be trouble brewing.

12. Pisces - Their tendency to lie.

Pisces have a difficult time telling the difference between a fantasy they've created and reality. More often than not, Pisces are known as the "pathological liar" sign. Pisces can typically come up with some pretty good stories, so these lies won't even be little. They'll be full-blown fantasies. Good luck knowing the truth if you are with a Pisces.

Subtle Ways You May Be Disrespecting Your Friend's Relationship

If they make your friend happy, you shouldn't be doing these things.

No ones significant other wants to tell them they don't like their friends. And trying to tell anyone not to hang out with the people they're closest too is a disaster waiting to happen.

Some people really just don't like their friend's partner, but others have no idea the damage they may be doing to the relationship. If you are more aware of some things to avoid, hopefully, you, your friend, and their partner can all get along in peace.

1. When you see your friend, make sure to acknowledge their partner.

To be honest, this is a basic courtesy. If you go to say hi to anyone in a group of people, it is polite to greet, or at least acknowledge, everyone there. If you completely ignore that your friend's partner is even there, it will make them feel awkward and neglected. Just say hi.

2. Don't be overly touchy-feely with your friend, especially around their partner.

Obviously, this mostly applies to friends of the opposite sex (for heterosexual couples). Look, there is nothing wrong with having friends of the opposite sex but just know your boundaries. You may think your friend's partner is being jealous for no reason, but are you doing anything that might make them uncomfortable?

You don't need to always have your arm around them or be leaned up against them. It is really inappropriate to kiss them on the cheek or give them super long hugs, even if that is something you did before they had a partner, and even if it is completely platonic.

You can still hug and be close to your friend, just be respectful of their boundaries. If you don't give their partner any reason to be jealous then they will have no basis to dislike you.

3. If you invite your friend somewhere, it is polite to also invite their partner.

Even if you assume your friend's partner is going to come, it is nice to make them feel welcomed. And if you don't want their partner to come, make sure they are not together or planning to be together when you invite your friend.

You don't have to always have their partner around, but don't make it a habit of not inviting them. If they don't feel welcomed around their partner's friends, then they probably won't feel as confident in their relationship.

4. Don't ever bring up your friend's past relationships, especially around their partner.

Even if they are on good terms. Even if you are still friends with their ex. Just don't bring them up. No one wants to hear about their partner's past relationships or flings. It is embarrassing and uncomfortable to have to hear about your partner's exes.

5. If you are all out together, don't try to separate your friend from their partner.

There is a good chance that if you are out with your friend and their partner, their partner does not know many people there. If that is the case, don't try to separate your friend from their partner.

There may be an exception if their partner has friends around too, or if they are outgoing and can talk to anybody easily, but otherwise, it is really awkward to be in that situation alone. They are with their partner for a reason, and it is nice to make their partner feel included as well.

Just don't make it a habit to always pull your friend away.

6. Don't put your friend in any awkward or risky situations.

If your friend is a cheater, that is not really any fault of yours. But don't be the friend who is known for putting your partnered friend in risky situations.

There is nothing wrong with going out occasionally with your friends, but it does not need to be a regular occurrence, especially if it makes their partner uncomfortable.

Along the same lines, if you know an ex-partner or fling will be there, you don't need to put your friend in that awkward situation. Just be aware of the situation and how it might make their partner feel.

To wrap up, you don't need to completely change your relationship with your friend just to make their partner happy; just make sure to be polite and respectful of their partner and their relationship.

These are some subtle things you may be doing that are hurting your friend's relationship that you don't even realize have negative consequences. Simply be more aware of some of these situations and how they could potentially make your friend's partner feel. After all, the best relationships are the ones where your partner's friends also become your friends.

My BF And I Were 'Just Friends' And Now We're Celebrating Our One Year Anniversary

Dating my best friend was the best decision I have ever made.

In August 2017, Brendan and I met. A group of friends invited him and me to go to Wendy's after a meeting for a school club. We talked the whole time — the conversation seemed endless in the best way possible. Later that night, I called him to ask him what water balloons I should buy for a celebration the next day. From that day forward, I cannot remember a day where I have not called him. It started off as nothing more as a platonic relationship from my perspective, but he would advocate otherwise.

Fast-forward to January 2018, Brendan and I started seeing each other outside of school. We would make up excuses and white lies to our friends and parents, saying that we were going to the library to study when really we would just sit in the parking lot and talk for hours until he had to drive me home. He became my best friend. I wanted to tell him everything — good news, bad news, stupid rants, my blonde moments, random and unfiltered thoughts. However, day-in and day-out, I kept denying that it was anything more than a friendship. Again, he would argue otherwise.

On April 27, 2018, I gave in.

We were sitting in his parked Dodge Durango, listening to a pop radio station. I was leaning over the center console to rest my head on his shoulder, and we were waiting for the sun to go down at a park. Abruptly, I looked over at him and ironically asked if he would be my boyfriend. For some reason, we did not tell our family or friends for about a month (sorry, Mum and Dad). I wish I would have realized it sooner, but regardless of timing, dating my best friend was the best decision I have ever made.

Christmas 2018Olivia Zidzik

Since then, our relationship has overcome insane distances.

Being 12 miles away turned into 1,601 miles when he went on a service trip to Boca Chica in the Dominican Republic this past summer. It went back to 12 miles for a little while. However, at the end of the summer, it turned into 413 miles when I moved to the University of Kentucky. In October, we were only a few feet apart as I hid behind his car in his school parking lot to surprise him. After I have returned and left home for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break, he decided it was time for him to come to Lexington in March 2019.

All the time spent together and apart brings us to our one year — April 27, 2019.

Hey, Brendan: Although we will be 413 miles apart for it, happy one-year. You have been my rock and my best friend for the past 20-some months, and there are not enough thank you's that I can say to express how thankful I am that God put you in my life. I am so beyond grateful and appreciative for everything you have done and sacrificed for me and for us. I cannot wait to see where our journey will go next, but until then — here's to me and you. I love you. See you very very soon.
