There was a time when I told myself I’d be great at pursuing casual relationships. Nevermind that I’m someone who tends to take everything a little too seriously — I was still convinced that I could date around without getting emotionally attached to anyone. Well, spoiler alert: I figured out that wasn’t exactly correct. I’d often catch feelings early on, even though I’d work hard to suppress them in front of the person I was seeing. And it turns out this isn’t unusual — certain zodiac signs catch feelings before others. Try as hard as they might, they struggle to maintain a “chill” or ambiguous hookup situation.
I’ve since come to realize it isn’t bad to catch feelings for someone you’re into. After all, isn’t that what dating is really about? If I care about someone in a romantic sense, I’m much more likely to have fulfilling physical and intellectual chemistry with them. Yes, I catch feelings sometimes – but I see this as a sign of emotional vulnerability and strength. Being willing to go out on a limb and tell someone “I like you” is brave AF, and I think these feelings should be celebrated rather than hidden away. *steps off soapbox*
All this to say, if you’re one of these four zodiac signs, you probably get invested pretty quickly. And this is totally OK! As long as you guard your heart against people who don’t deserve it, you can find happiness in relationships where feelings take center stage.
