There is no ideal “prototypical” relationship that is just destined for success in a life full of love and romance. There are so many different kinds of relationships that carry with them distinct personalities and characters which somehow manage to make it through the long haul.
So there isn’t really one “ideal” kind of pairing that people should be aspiring to have. It all really depends on the pairing and the effort that goes into making things work between these two people.
And while it can be difficult to tell which couples are just destined to last a lifetime, on the other side of the spectrum, it’s so easy to tell which couples are just destined to break up. And it’s all a matter of consulting the stars and the Zodiac signs.
The Zodiacs can really reveal a lot about ourselves; stuff that we never would have grown to discover on our own. And if we pay enough attention, we can save ourselves a lot of time by just not getting into relationships that are wrong for us to begin with.
So do you want to know what kind of partner you shouldn’t even be wasting your time on? Of course, you do, that’s why you’re here! Here are a few Zodiac sign combos that are never going to last.
1. Aries and Cancer
The Aries is always going to be very frank and straightforward. They tend to do things on a whim because that’s just how their brains are naturally wired to operate. They want to act swiftly because they feel like they have so many things to do in this life and they don’t want to waste any time.
However, the abrupt nature of an Aries might be too intense for a Cancer to handle. Cancer is very sensitive; they always like to be coddled and cared for. And that’s just something an Aries doesn’t have the patience to do. There would be too much dysfunction between these two signs.

2. Taurus and Sagittarius
This is a tricky Zodiac sign pairing because it might really look like a good idea at the start. On paper, these two should work out, right? Wrong. Don’t be deceived by the fact that a Taurus and a Sagittarius make for very good friends. > Also read, 9 Things to Adopt For a Healthy Relationship with an Aquarius.
The moment things start to get romantic between these two, everything is going to fall apart. The Taurus is just never going to be able to find the security and stability that they need in a romantic relationship from a Sagittarius. A Sagittarius is just far too noncommittal and free-spirited to allow themselves to get tied down to anyone.
3. Gemini and Virgo
A Gemini and a Virgo are practically going to drive each other nuts if they ever get into a relationship with one another. They wouldn’t even make very good friends just because of how different and incompatible their personalities are.
A Gemini is very wayward and random. They aren’t really known for their planning and organization skills. And their lack of direction is going to drive a Virgo crazy. A Virgo is very uptight. They always want things to be done a certain way. And their overbearing personality is going to infuriate the Gemini.
It’s just not meant to be between these two Zodiac signs. There is just far too much dysfunction there. Also read our separate article for Geminies: 5 Easy Ways to Love a Gemini
4. Leo and Scorpio
It’s a power play between these two Zodiac signs. Both of these creatures are incredibly controlling and power-hungry. And neither will want to relinquish their power in favor of the other. And because of that, it will be infinitely difficult for these two to ever come to a compromise on anything.
They are both going to want to do things in their own very distinct ways – and they are never going to be able to meet each other halfway. They both need to be paired up with someone who is submissive and understanding.
5. Capricorn and Aquarius
A Capricorn and an Aquarius would typically seem like a match made in heaven, right? They are both pragmatic – they are both smart and they both know how to get things done in life. But that’s just the thing. They are too much alike and neither of them is going to like that. Also read, 9 Things to Adopt For a Healthy Relationship with an Aquarius.
They both have very extreme personalities, and they need someone different from them. They need someone who is going to be able to offset the extreme aspects of their personalities; someone who is going to be able to balance things out. Because if these two get together, they’re going to get bored really quickly. It will be like being in a relationship with themselves.
6. Libra and Pisces
A Libra is a people-pleaser. A Pisces is a dreamer. And when that’s the case, there is no one in the relationship who is able to stay grounded in reality. There is no one in the relationship who just keeps things real and just does what needs to be done. A Libra and Pisces can be very good friends though. It’s just they won’t really make for great relationship partners. Also read Why are Libras considered as the best long term partners.
