In today’s day and age, the dating world solely lives in dating apps and in DMs. So if you aren’t particularly keen on the idea of swiping left or right or online dating in general, it feels like a struggle trying to find someone to date. Dating apps just aren’t for everyone and that’s okay!
If you believe in zodiac signs, there are certainly some indicators that may suggest why you aren’t a fan of online dating. There are 3 signs in particular that traditionally say “Thank u, next” to this trend, and the results may shock you.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Cancers are water signs which means they’re intuitive, sensitive, and feel emotions intensely. To put it simply – they have a tender heart. They also crave in-person interactions because it gives them the opportunity to read the other person better. It doesn’t mean they dislike technology, though. They just prefer personal connection in the traditional sense. They could be described as the type who would love to have a love at first sight moment, a blind date set up by a mutual friend, or having a face to face meeting.
Virgo (August 23- September 22)
The easiest way to describe a Virgo is that they are particular, especially with their emotions. They are very selective with who they share their independent spirit and heart with.. They have to think through the process very carefully. Virgos live in the moment but hate wasting their time. Which is probably why they don’t like using dating apps as much because of the risks affiliated with them (catfishing, ghosting, etc.) Earth signs are very practical, grounded, and are not big risk takers. They’d rather devote their time to finding love in person and usually doing an activity they are passionate about.
Pisces (February 19- March 20)
Believe it or not, Pisces are very similar to Cancers as they are both water signs. Hence, their reasons for not favoring dating apps overlap in a few ways. Pisces like depth (just as Cancers do), which is very hard to find digitally. They also don’t like the problems that go with online dating because they strive for deeper connections. It’s very challenging to find a soulmate on an app.. Additionally, they prefer a romantic encounter just like Cancers do.
Obviously, your zodiac sign doesn’t indicate your preference of how you meet future romantic partners – that’s totally a personal preference! But based on these signs’ personality traits, you can see why they aren’t always interested in using dating apps. There’s nothing wrong with not liking that form of dating, and it’s actually nice to hear that other people still believe in the power of natural human connection! So, do what you like to do. You’ll find someone who shares your values sooner or later in this harsh dating world.
