Even if a relationship is going well, it can be tough for some people say "I love you." And that's totally understandable. Dropping the L word is a big deal, and it shouldn't be taken lightly. But when it comes to astrology, there are a few zodiac signs who may struggle to say "I love you" more than others.
This has to a lot to do with what each sign prioritizes in life. Some signs like to be double and triple sure they're ready to make a commitment, before they even hint at being in love. Others value their independence, and thus aren't too keen on settling down with just anyone. And others simply have a tendency to overthink things.
Whatever the reason, though, it's 100 percent possible for anyone to have a healthy, happy relationship — regardless of the traits inherent to their sun sign. "Love, relationships, and compatibility are so much more complex and involved than the sun sign," professional astrologer Rachel Lang tells Bustle. "Each person has an entire natal chart that reflects the planetary placements of all the planets at the time of birth, and each one symbolizes a different aspect of the person’s life as well as personality."
So just because someone is a Gemini or a Capricorn or a Virgo — just a few signs that may have trouble saying "I love you" — it doesn't mean they can't or won't find love. "Two people in partnership together create and define any relationship potentiality," Lang says. "Compatibility is so much more than the sun sign alone." Here, the five signs that are most likely to put off saying "I love you," according to experts.
