Aries are tough, confident, and tend to have a “thank you, next” mentality when it comes to breakups. To them, it’s all about moving forward and never looking back. But that doesn’t mean rams feel heartache less than any other sign. In fact, as a passionate fire sign who tends to fall in love hard and fast, you've likely experienced your share of heartbreak when the person on the receiving end wasn't as all-in as you were. While perfectly equal devotion is never a guarantee, you can be cautious about who you choose to pursue. If you want to steer clear of major compatibility issues, there are three zodiac signs most likely to break Aries' heart, according to astrologers.

“Aries is the sign of the ‘self,’ and are usually very bold and forthright,” astrologer Jessica D'Angio, tells Bustle. “What you see is what you get with Aries. They don't play games. They're natural-born leaders, and most of them handle that responsibility very well. In fact, they really take pride in being ‘first,’” she says. “A partner who doesn't recognize or acknowledge just how special they are will be the one thing that can hurt Aries the most. A partner who failed to keep up, or simply didn't appreciate their efforts would also be completely heartbreaking.”

As someone who absolutely hates losing, you'll definitely want to know which zodiac signs you should avoid dating. So here are the three zodiac signs most likely to break your heart, according to D'Angio.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

When airy Gemini meets fiery Aries, the pair can burn brightly together for a good while. In fact, Gemini can be one of the best matches for Aries long-term. However, there are a few things that can get in the way of their relationship. As time moves on, things can fizzle out when the ram’s need for total honesty is met by the twin’s duality.

“Gemini has a (mostly undeserved) reputation for being dishonest,” D’Angio says. “Although they can be manipulative, most of them don't outright lie for fun. Aries is completely blunt and honest all the time, and won't tolerate anything less than the whole truth.”

In general, Gemini is a very social sign whose friendliness can come off as flirtatiousness. When someone really matters to Aries, they can become very possessive. If Aries sees Gemini talking to other people, this will trigger the ram’s jealousy. If Gemini feels like they’re being tied down, they may eventually decide to leave.

Aries is also a very decisive sign, while Gemini tends to be more fickle. This can lead to heartbreak when Aries fully commits to a future with Gemini, but Gemini still wants to see where things go.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Initially, Aries and Leo make a pretty compatible pair. They’re both fire signs who tend to fall in love quickly. When they first meet, they won’t be able to keep their hands off each other. They’ll be so wrapped up in their newfound love, they might make things official right away.

Personality-wise, they’re very similar. They’re both highly energetic, outgoing, and driven. Aries and Leo have big goals in mind and will stop at nothing to achieve them. While having a lot in common is a good thing, it also comes with its share of downsides. In their case, a “fierce” battle of egos can develop with these two self-oriented signs over time.

“For slightly different reasons, both signs want to be center stage at all times,” D’Angio says. “Things can get ugly when Leo steals that spotlight away, which they tend to do naturally. Over time, Aries will get tired of having to play second fiddle.” Aries will be left heartbroken when they realize that Leo will always put themselves first.

Leos also tend to have fragile egos and need a lot of reassurance in relationships to feel loved and appreciated, which Aries won’t always have patience for. If Leo starts accusing Aries of not being a good partner, or worse, they start comparing their relationship to others, this can really hurt the ram. If they ultimately break up, Aries will always wonder what they could’ve done to be a better partner.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Aries and Scorpio make one of the hottest couples in the zodiac. They both share Mars as a ruling planet, which grants them an extroverted, aggressive, and outwardly passionate energy. So, when their relationship is good, it’s really good. Their sex life is amazing, they have good conversations, and they can have a well-balanced partnerships.

However, since Scorpio is also ruled by Pluto, they tend to be more introverted, smoldering, and inwardly passionate. According to D’Angio, Aries’ openness and bold energy can become overwhelming to the more closed-off scorpion, and Aries might be hurt that Scorpio doesn’t reciprocate their vulnerability.

“Aries will perceive it as a personal offense, even if Scorpio doesn't mean it that way,” she says. “These two will have a hard time communicating their feelings to each other, with Aries getting the short end of the stick every time.” In general, Scorpios are very secretive. If Aries pushes Scorpio before they’re ready, Scorpio may decide that Aries really isn’t the one for them.

The scorpion also has a tendency to get mean when they’re challenged. They may say things out of anger that will deeply offend Aries. The ram will be left wondering whether their partner really meant those hurtful things or not. If they do break up, Scorpio’s words will be something that Aries will carry with them for a long time.
