When you’re zodiac royalty like Leo, finding a partner who’s worthy of standing by your side while you take on the world isn’t easy. You're confident, outgoing, and have a ton of people who adore you. Because of this, you need to find someone who can confidently hang back and support you while you go out there and do your thing. Unfortunately, not everyone is OK with sharing their partner with the whole wide world, according to astrologers. This realization can be heartbreaking for you, so if you want a partner who won't ever dull your shine, you may want to avoid dating three zodiac signs in particular.

"Leos thrive when they are in love," Haley Comet, lead astrologer of astrology-based dating app NUiT Connect and Match App, tells Bustle. "[Leos] don't do anything halfway — they go all-in or not at all. They follow their hearts completely and abandon rationale on the way, so they may even rush into a relationship and say 'I love you' right away."

As the sign of self-expression and theatrics, Leos are all about over-the-top displays of affections, date nights out on the town, and generous gifts. All they want in return are hugs, kisses, and near-constant stream of compliments. Since the lion is ruled by the Sun, which governs the self, Leos naturally have big egos that need to be stroked.

According to Comet, Leos would be hurt most by a partner who wounds their ego. "Leo is a proud sign," she says. "If their partner does something to make them look dumb, especially publicly, this is unforgivable for them." As a fixed sign, Leo also values loyalty. So cheating or any other sort of betrayal will wound both their heart and their ego.

If you're a Leo looking for the right partner for you, it may be in your best interest to stay away from the following three signs. According to Comet, these zodiac signs will only leave you heartbroken.

Gemini (May 21 — June 20)

A Gemini-Leo relationship tends to be a lot of fun at the beginning. Both signs are very outgoing, love meeting new people, and need constant intellectual stimulation in relationships. Once Gemini sees Leo being their fabulous self in the middle of a party, Gemini will be immediately drawn towards them. Gemini has an insatiable curiosity and loves learning everything they can about everyone. Leo will love being the center of Gemini’s attention.

However, Gemini’s curiosity will eventually fade, and if Leo doesn’t fascinate them any longer, they will look elsewhere. “Even if Gemini just harmlessly flirts with someone else or acts like someone else is interesting, Leos will be hurt,” Comet says. “They won't like that Gemini isn't completely enraptured by the signature Leo glow and radiance. They aren't necessarily needy, but they do need a partner who hypes them up!”

Virgo (August 23 — September 22)

Virgo and Leo are two neighboring signs who don’t have a ton in common. Virgo is more reserved and very by-the-book, while Leo tends to do whatever they want in the flashiest way possible. You wouldn’t think these two would be attracted to each other, and they may not be interested initially. As they get to know each other, though, they’ll appreciate how they balance each other out.

However, as an earth sign, Virgo shows love in efficient and grounded ways, while Leo shows love in more passionate and romantic ways. According to Comet, this mismatch can lead to Leo feeling a lack of love from their partner. “Leo shows love through sweeping gestures and roses, whereas Virgo does it by getting gas for their partner and going grocery shopping,” she says. “Virgo is showing love the only way that they know how, but Leo doesn't naturally accept love in these ways.”

Furthermore, Virgo is a notoriously critical sign. Once they inevitably start nitpicking, Leo’s confidence will take some major hits, and their heart will break at how their partner is acting.

Aquarius (January 20 — February 18)

Two fixed signs in a relationship can be both a blessing and a curse, and that’s what you get here. On the plus side, Aquarius and Leo are also opposite signs, so there’s a strong natural attraction there. They tend to enjoy a slow and steady approach to dating, so neither sign will push the other to make a commitment before they’re ready. Once they’re in a relationship, both signs are very loyal.

However, fixed signs are also notoriously stubborn. If there are disagreements, it may take a while before one sign gives in. Leo is all fire, while Aquarius is known for being cold and detached. “Leo, a sign that runs off of passion and lots of affection, will be heartbroken at Aquarius’ independence and coolness,” Comet says. Aquarius is also the humanitarian of the zodiac and is very passionate about changing the world. Although Leo will initially find that quality attractive, their feelings will get hurt once they realize Aquarius puts more effort towards saving everyone else than saving their relationship.
