When I was a kid, the thought of love excited me. I couldn't imagine anything greater in life than having a solid relationship with the perfect person. But, back then, I was oblivious to the fact that people's personalities could be why they weren't compatible. As I've gotten older, that realization has become very prevalent. I've also realized that you can learn what type of partner you'll be based on your zodiac sign and, similarly, find out what zodiac sign you should be aiming to date based on compatibility.
Though I'm not a stickler for staying within my sign compatibility, I always try to take note of the things certain signs possess that may not mesh well with mine. I've learned over the years that there are certain signs that I can't work out with — no matter how much I may try to force it. For example, as a Capricorn, I pride myself on commitment and need a partner that isn't afraid to be with me and only me.
I'm not saying you have to live according to the stars. But if you are interested in learning what your sign brings to a relationship (and, also, what signs to avoid dating) then read on for the info.
