3 Zodiac Signs Who Are Faithful No Matter What

It's easy to feel like giving your heart to someone new comes with a risk. Opening up and letting them into your life can make you feel scared and vulnerable, so it’s natural (and wise) to want to make sure the person you’re trusting with this level of emotional intimacy is actually worthy of it. And while only time can tell if they truly are, there are a handful of zodiac signs who are the most faithful that might make it easier to feel confident about your decision to get serious with them.

These are the signs that value security over exploration, and that are, themselves, often slow to let people in. They get to know their partners carefully before committing, so when they define the relationship, they mean it and aren't likely to stray. It might take some patience to get to the point where these signs feel like they want to be loyal to you, but, in the end, it's worth the wait to know you can count on them to stay true. If that's the kind of partner you're looking for, then swipe right on these zodiac signs that have no interest in cheating, no matter what.

Cancer (June 21 — July 22)

Cheating is antithetical to everything Cancer stands for, which makes them one of the most faithful signs in the zodiac. Ruled by the Moon, the heavenly body associated with emotion, Cancer is particularly vulnerable to heartbreak. As a result, they’re slow to open up to new partners and have a tendency to test and vet someone before they're willing to even consider allowing them in. Cancer desires security, safety, and a steadfast partner in their relationships and is more than happy to offer their partner the same in return. That said, if you let Cancer down, they won’t cheat, but you will find yourself out in the cold very quickly.

Like their fellow water sign, Cancer, Scorpio protects a soft heart beneath a hard outer shell. Getting behind these signs' defenses is a challenge, as trust is essential to them but has to be earned. Scorpio is naturally mysterious and chooses to play their cards very close to the vest, so they often fear that everyone else is doing the same, and may even need to be convinced otherwise. Once they’re confident in their partner's loyalty and fidelity, Scorpio is all in. Still, no matter how devoted a Scorpio is, that can quickly change if they feel betrayed. This sign believes in payback, so if you are unfaithful, there’s a good chance Scorpio will be quick to return the favor before cutting you out of their life for good.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19)

Of all the signs in the zodiac, Capricorn may take commitment the most seriously. That's because their ruling planet, Saturn, is all about structure and law. So, when they give their word, they mean it to their core. This sign also takes a more traditional view of relationships, so when they’re in one, they’re all the way in.

Capricorn is very selective about who they give their heart (and perhaps even more importantly, their time) to. They’re seeking a partner who enhances their life and helps them achieve their goals, and finding just the right fit can present a challenge. When they find that person, they aren’t going to throw it away for the sake of a hookup.

While any sign in the zodiac can be the most amazing, committed, faithful partner from day one, these signs make it look easy.
