If you've ever downloaded and deleted... and downloaded and deleted... and downloaded and deleted your dating apps, you know what I'm talking about. I'm not sure if there's already a name for this dating trend, but I'm making one: vappcillating. What it means: You vacillate between wanting to put yourself out there and feeling burnt out, so you enter a cycle of swiping and shunning. There are certain zodiac signs who download and delete dating apps again and again, and they just can't help it — they're vappcillators by nature. These ambivalent zodiac signs have love lives that look like rollercoasters.
Dating fatigue is real, and while you may initially be excited to swipe when you download a dating app, it can get old fast. While some people will decide that the swipe life isn't for them and move on, others will continuously leave and return to dating apps like an ex-lover they can't get over. Whether they're running hot and cold with someone they're kind of seeing, eagerly rebounding after a breakup (before realizing they aren't quite ready to be dating again), or just plain indecisive, dating apps never stay on their phones for too long. Vappcillating is a vice they just can't quit.
As the sign of duality, Gemini is the ultimate waffler. Though these individuals are known for being incredibly intelligent, their overactive brains tend to cause major indecisiveness. Geminis have a hard time deciding what to eat for breakfast, so any decision concerning their love life requires hours of weighing their options. Those born under this sign also have a reputation for being just a tad impulsive. Even if they swear to their bestie they'll never use a dating app again for as long as they live, they'll likely be swiping again five minutes later.
Libras are unfailing optimists, and they're firm believers that everything will work out the way it's supposed to in the end. The problem: They feel responsible for creating that ideal ending. These lovers of balance tend to think that — through logic and reasoning — they can move through life with as little strife as possible. As a result, they may consider dating apps the key to their destiny one day, and then decide apps will only lead to their demise the next.
Sagittarians are the explorers of the zodiac, and there's nothing they hate more than feeling stagnant. In general, Sags have a hard time committing to anything, whether it's an online subscription, a food fad, or a relationship. They feel like their best selves when they're unhindered and free to choose impulsively, which is why swiping feels like a novelty at first — and then gets boring just as quickly. A Sag loves uncharted territory and discovering what's out there, but sitting and swiping for hours on end is just not their jam. Until their endless curiosity gets the best of them and they resume swiping, of course.
Sure, vappcillating may not be the most productive habit, but there's nothing wrong with taking a break from dating before getting back out there. For these four indecisive signs, I'll just offer one piece of advice: You probably want to just deactivate your dating profile rather than delete it to save yourself the hassle of recreating it later on.
