This is pretty accurate!
You might have a friend or someone else who is so close to you, you open up to them about everything – from your love life to which pet to get. In fact, it might come naturally to you, sharing things with that special someone. However, for some of us, it might be extra hard.
Some of us might not even have that special someone, a home we come to at the end of the day and talk things out with. Some of us, unlike the majority out there, hide our true selves behind a mask lest the world sees the less perfect us and points fingers at it. And that’s not even the end of it; we use small talk and all the thrills of life to hide away our true selves.
Such a thick exterior can often be hard to get past through for those who actually want to get to know us. It goes beyond trust issues though. There can be many reasons which make it hard for others to be around you and to get to know you. Whatever they might be, the fact that you hold on to them won’t only drive others away from you, it’ll make things harder for you yourself too
Have a personality you find is hard for others to understand? Here are some reasons why – based on your zodiac signs.
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
They have a lively nature, not dull and boring personalities who would stay in and spend the whole day doing lame indoor activities with you. So if you want to get to know an Aries well enough, reach up to their level of excitement – get out in the world with them and try exciting things.
Their mind will only acknowledge you when you are up and about. If you think they will be patient enough to get to know you, you thought wrong. They know they only live once and therefore, making the best out of this experience matters the most to them.
They simply move on unless you make such an amazing first impression on that, it makes them want to stay back and talk more. You can also read our very famous articles on how to love an Aries and how you should be loved.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
Taurians are perhaps the hardest sign to get to know. Feeling secure and stable matters the most to them, which is precisely why they are going to take their time to get to know and evaluate your personality. It will be hard for you to get to know them because no matter how much loving they are from the inside, they have a thick coarse exterior.
Once you manage to get past that, you will be all ears as the Taurian will open up to you once you breach their walls. You can also read our another piece on 7 things that make Taurus the most romantic partner ever.
Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
Getting to know them is a really task. That’s because you have a small window to impress them. If you manage to do so well enough then they will start a pretty fun conversation with you – they’re all about having fun, crazy interests, hobbies and all such outgoing traits.
They love chit-chatting and hanging out with people; the high they get from such a thrill makes them open up to others about themselves. But that is only possible once those people engage in conversations with a Gemini according to the latter’s conversation. Here are some qualities of Leo women and how you should treat them the right way. Also read our separate article for Geminies: 5 Easy Ways to Love a Gemini.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
The Crab is born to nurture and empathise with basically every living thing on the planet – humans more so, obviously. They will care for you in a motherly way, but that does not mean they are all ready to open up to you. They will still be holding back a lot of them because they are afraid to have their feelings hurt.
That holds them back from being too involved in a relationship right away. Hold on to your patience because you will be needing loads of it if you want to know a Cancerian. They might put you through some trails and errors/tests just to make sure your motives are clear to them. Also read 10 things you need to know about a Cancerian woman.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Leos are natural charmers; talented personalities knowing just how to bring the spotlight upon themselves at social media and public gatherings. That kind of natural charm goes a long way for a Leo when it comes to dazzling people with an amazing first impression – you’ll want to get to know them more. Being such social creatures, they will make new friends.
However, they will not shed that glamorous exterior that fast. You just have to prove to them that once they show you their less than perfect personality, you won’t run away…and we all know how hard it actually is to build that tower of trust so go figure. Here are some qualities of Leo women and how you should treat them the right way.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
Virgos are not that lovey dovey, to say the least. They care more about technicalities and perfections, about fixing lives and ordering things around. Given the fact they thrive on being the best, it is hard to get them to focus on others things.
Tell them it is okay to be as huge of a perfectionist as they are and that you still want to get to know them – whatever that will be like. Show them the neat little world they have formed for themselves is as cosy and welcoming to you as it is with them. Vibe with them and they will still give you a chance to get to see them past a cleanliness freak or a bossy personality. Here are 13 things that you should know about loving a Virgo.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Libras are intelligent socially. It is not hard for them to make new friends so being picky in that regard is only natural to them. Furthermore, relationships are a whole lot more valuable to them than for most people, which means there is a greater risk of getting to know them: if you do not play well getting to know them, they have other options to choose from too.

Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
They have a combative attitude, which often makes them hard to get to know. Because they care so much about their loved ones, they know how to stand up for them and themselves. That combative nature often proves to be a turn off to them and they get restless.
It is tricky getting to know a Scorpio. Once you get past their tough side, they are an open book. They like to be in control in most things. That adds up to their combative nature and makes them intimidating to get close to. If you’re planning on dating a Scorpio then you should know the 15 Brutally Honest things about Scorpios.
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
Sagittarians are light-hearted; they don’t converse deeply. Try having fun talks with them in order to get to know them. That will lead it to more substantial conversations, where they’ll be in a place to talk freely about themselves. Also read, 10 Ways to Love a Sagittarius.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
Capricorn are hard to get to know – they do not see the point in opening up to people. They value their privacy a lot. Prove to them you will violate this value of theirs so they will trust you; that you will not put a stain on the hard working reputation they have built for themselves.
They might find it difficult to trust you with their issues at first, feeling you might not see the logic in their truth like they do. Keep an open mind while understanding their beliefs; they stick by to those very strongly. Once they feel they can trust you to be understanding instead of labeling them as extremists or some such thing, they will let you see their loving and caring side. 10 Things to Remember While Loving a Capricorn and if you are in a relationship with a Capricorn read, 10 ways to make a strong relationship with a Capricorn!
Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
Aquarians are not like most people. Getting to know them will not be like getting to know most people either. Relationships do not interest them much, not because they are mean or anything. They just do not believe in holding on to arbitrary rules like everyone else in society does. If you want to get close to them, show them how you are open-minded and unwilling to judge them for their non-traditional mentality.
See past that side of them and they will let you in to their likes and dislikes, what interests them and their hobbies and beliefs etc are. Once you are in, you are in for good. The first step, as always, is the hardest. Also read, 9 Things to Adopt For a Healthy Relationship with an Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
Pisces are the type of people who like their own company. Having a new partner or even just a friend does not hold that much value to them; they are enough for themselves. That is why getting to know them is so hard. They do not feel the need to open up because they like to be alone.
Such an introverted personality can be hard to get to know. However, they do have intellectual, creative and highly imaginative minds. Spark up a conversation with them covering all such elements and you might have a chance to get to know them better. Also read, 10 things you need to know about Loving a Pisces.
