Helen Luc from YourTango explains how some zodiac signs fall in love harder than others.
Do you wear your heart on your sleeve?
If you've ever put yourself out there to date, you probably know how nerve-wracking falling in love can potentially be.
Being in love means risking your own heart and making yourself completely vulnerable to someone else.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing — but this might make you a bit wary or cautious when meeting someone you really like.
Have you ever found yourself slow to open up to someone or hesitant to plunge face first into having the "let's be exclusive" talk despite knowing that you'd really freaking love to be with this person?
Well, that's probably because falling in love makes you feel like you have so much emotionally at stake.
Before you commit to someone, you'd like to know that they like you back, or that they care about you just as much as you care about them, or simply that they won't be a reckless partner.
It's totally understandable to be cautious when it comes to matters of the heart.
Some people, though, are SO willing to risk it all for love.
For some of us, the only way to lose in love is if we don't surrender ourselves to our feelings and risk everything for the one we love.
Being daring enough to give so much love might make you feel like you're at a greater risk of getting hurt or rejected, but it also makes you more true to your feelings.
Some people just fall in love really hard and can't help but express every ounce of it.
If you're trying to figure out if you're someone who risks it all for love, look no further — the stars can give you your answer.
Here are the 5 zodiac signs that fall the hardest in love:
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
An Aries woman is so eager to add passion to her relationships that she forgets that each lover comes with a risk and that she might end up giving more than she gets.
She likes to plunge into relationships, just like she does in life.
She tries hard to make things work and she has SO much to offer, but as a result of her enthusiasm, her relationships may sometimes end up being one-sided.
She's someone who will put in a lot of effort into her relationships — from planning all the dates to surprising her love with sweet gifts — and her partner may end up getting lazy in the relationship.
Luckily, she is also quick to notice when her partner isn't putting in enough effort, and she will easily bring this up next time she finds herself giving more than she gets.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A Gemini loves the feeling of entering a new relationship. The thrill of a new partner gets her very excited.
She might be a bit nervous about her new partner, but her feelings of attraction are so strong that she can cast away her fears and be honest about the way she feels.
In the beginning stages of a relationship, she is likely to be a bit clingy and over-eager about pleasing her partner.
When she is dating someone, she feels a very strong need to satisfy them. Her relationships tend to be shorter, since she is commitment-shy, but her relationships are still nonetheless very intense.
Once she is attracted to someone, she works hard to express her feelings.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
A Libra is extremely loyal to her partner, and she will avoid conflict at all costs. She loves her partner so much that she is ready to give him pretty much anything that he asks for.
That's just how she expresses her admiration.
When she's in a relationship, she is completely enamored by her partner. She believes she is acting true to her emotions when she is selfless, but this can easily get her hurt if her partner doesn't reciprocate.
She sees the best in the people she dates, and can forget that not all people will be careful with her heart.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
A Sagittarius woman is brash with her relationships, but she still loves SO hard.
The beginning stages of all her relationships are a flurry of passionate emotions. She understands that she will get hurt and that her relationships might not last, but she still dives into romance head first.
For the short time period that she is with someone, she will be completely vulnerable and open.
She is honest about the way she feels, and she is eager to love her partner.
A Sagittarius lives by the words: "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
A Pisces woman acts true to her emotions. If she likes someone, she won't play games and she won't spare herself from the possibility of getting hurt.
When she finds someone she likes, she trusts them completely. She will open up to them and she is not afraid to be vulnerable around them.
This is the glory of being a Pisces...and their downfall, far too often.
She is quick to love others, and she values emotionally honest relationships.
Since she has such a trusting nature and easily puts down her guard for people she likes, she is more prone to getting hurt, but she understands the risk, and she finds it worth it anyway.
Regardless of her sign, and if she is on the list, know that you need to treasure the woman that you fall in love with — or even the woman you think you may someday fall for.
For other signs, falling in love is a real challenge.
That girl's heart deserves tender care, too.
Real love is, after all, patient and kind, regardless of whether you fall fast, or wait patiently to be sure.
