If your list of first-date failures is longer than your list of successes, you’ve probably been told many times that you need to lower your standards.
But having high expectations is not such a bad thing – it means that you know exactly what you want and that you are willing to search until you find exactly that, instead of making compromises. Some zodiac signs are known for having higher standards than most, especially when it comes to choosing a partner.
Michelle Bell, the founder of the astrology app Cosmic Fusion, revealed to Bustle that these three zodiac signs couldn’t lower their standards even if they wanted to. This is because they are prepared to fight for the best and never settle for less. In addition, they do not doubt their value. Of course, their innate desire for perfection can affect other aspects of their lives, such as their career or self-image, but this does not prevent them from having high demands from a potential partner. So, the next time someone tells you that your standards are too high, you can blame it on your birth chart – if you are represented by one of the signs below.
Virgo is one of the signs with the highest standards, according to astrologers. Whether she’s decorating her home or doing a dance cardio workout, Virgo gets involved and that’s exactly what she wants from her partner. Her perfectionist nature comes from the ruling planet Mercury, which always pushes her to raise the standards for herself and others. “Their drive for perfection is relentless and they will do everything possible to achieve the ideal,” explains Bell. But if you’re a Virgo, it doesn’t mean you have to let your meticulous nature get in the way. Astrologers say you have a lot of luck with dating apps, so go on dates if you’re single.
Since Libra can attract anyone’s attention, they will never settle for less than they deserve. She knows that there is someone who will give her everything she wants, and more. “Libras value balance and fairness, seeking harmonious partnerships with people who are beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside,” says Bell. It doesn’t sound bad at all, maybe we should follow the example of the Libras.
According to Bell, Capricorns are “fueled by ambition and a burning desire to succeed”, which is why they strive to get the best out of every situation. “Setting their goals high, Capricorns are known for their unwavering determination and strong work ethic,” says the astrology expert. “With Saturn as their cosmic ruler, they have the discipline and perseverance to make their dreams come true.” Of course, such a motivated sign needs a partner who is on the same level, which is why this cardinal sign is so compatible with Virgo. After all, both signs know what it means to have high standards.
