The day you were born could be the real reason why you’re not getting hundreds of matches on dating apps, astrologers have claimed. 

UK dating app Finding the One polled 1,500 people on their views on astrology and romance. 

The results show that one in four daters would instantly turn down potential dates based on their birthday – and it’s not good news if you’re a fire sign. 

According to the findings, 18% of singles would instantly cut off an Aries singleton, falling to 15% for Sagittarius, and 13% for Leos.

But for those looking to increase their chances of a date, an optimistic outlook on astrology might help secure a partner, as 59% of women find men attractive if they take an interest in astrology – as opposed to sceptics. 

New Dating app, Finding The One, polled 1,500 singles on their thoughts about astrology and romance

Aries starsigns are known to be natural born leaders, but astrology reckons they can also be short-tempered and impatient – which may explain the high rejection rate. 

Carly, 31, from Bristol, who took part in the study said: ‘I’m yet to meet an Aries who isn’t brutally blunt, and as a particularly sensitive Pisces that’s something I actively try to avoid – it just makes sense to swipe left. 

‘When I’ve gone out with signs that are considered compatible with mine, there’s a natural flow and understanding that makes things feel effortless when we meet up.’ 

While daters tend to avoid the Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo signs, Pisceans are in luck – as those born between February 19 and March 20 are the least likely to be rejected based on their star sign. 

Lizzie, a 33-year-old singleton from Cornwall currently on the waiting list for the app, has recently become a follower of astrology. 

She said: ‘Admittedly, astrology has played quite a big role in my dating decisions, especially more recently. 

‘I was a complete sceptic but during the pandemic I found myself with some extra time – like everyone else, I suppose – and decided to read up on it. Plus, it didn’t help being single and alone during lockdown.

The results found that one in four singles would instantly turn down potential dates based on their star sign 

‘I wouldn’t say I’ve totally put my faith in star signs, but I just don’t think we should completely dismiss it. 

‘Having read up on character traits for each zodiac, I looked into where some of my friends and exes fall – the descriptions really hit the nail on the head. 

‘And since my love life is lacking right now, I’m willing to give anything a go.’

But while the research found women tend to prefer men with an interest in astrology, 65% of men find women keen on star signs a total turn off. 

Which star signs are avoided the most on dating apps? 

1. Aries – 18%

2. Sagittarius 15%

3. Leo 13%

4. Scorpio 10%

5. Capricorn 9%

6. Cancer 7%

7. Libra 7%

8. Virgo 6%

9. Taurus 5%

10. Gemini 4%

11. Aquarius 4%

12. Pisces 2%

Relationships expert for, Sylvia Linzalone, said: ‘If you ask a scientist about whether they believe in astrology and star sign compatibility, you’ll almost definitely get a negative response. 

‘Technically, it’s not a science but star sign compatibility offers a huge sense of hope and optimism for a lot of people.’

‘It’s comforting to think that the universe might be conspiring to bring two compatible individuals together, and this belief adds a little bit of magic and destiny to the dating journey, making it feel less daunting and more exciting.

‘However, what I would say is that it’s important to keep an open mind when it comes to dating. 

‘Just because you’ve found yourself in a relationship that ended badly with an Aries, doesn’t necessarily mean they’re all bad – it’d be wrong for all of them to be tarred with the same brush based on when they were born.

‘Just remember, you can use it as a tool for finding someone special but don’t let someone’s star sign be a deal breaker. 

‘There’s only one real way of seeing if you’re compatible – by meeting face-to-face and seeing if there’s a spark!’

It comes after an astrologer has revealed the most compatible star sign pairings. 

Australian astrologer Rose Smith said the stars can tell us a lot about compatibility in our relationships, and whether we are likely to have a happy or turbulent time with our significant other.

Which signs are most compatible with one another?

Aries (March 21 to April 19) 

Aries is a masculine or ‘yang’ fiery cardinal sign meaning Arians are generally active, passionate and independent with strong opinions. They need partners who understand them and don’t try to dampen their fiery nature. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make good partners however, arguments are quite likely. Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius feed fire but Libra is opposite to Aries on the zodiac wheel so this match could bring difficulties. Gemini is a good bet.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20) 

Taurus is a feminine ‘yin’ earthy fixed sign. This means Taureans are generally inwardly focused, practical and self-directed, verging on stubbornness sometimes. Relationships with Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can work but care is needed that these matches don’t get bogged down in the mud with feelings of depression or being stuck in a rut. Relationships with Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces can add emotional connection, which is needed for balance, but Scorpio’s opinions can bring clashes. Cancer brings added nurturance.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Gemini is a ‘yang’ mutable Air sign making Geminis outgoing, communicative and flexible. They can be quite intellectual and like to think and strategise about most things. They get on well with Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius where there is lots of conversation, but some level of detachment can also occur. With other Air signs Gemini can live in some type of abstract world, but sometimes little gets done. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are attractive but with Sagittarius there are tendencies for much change, like it or not. A Leo match could work out best.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22) 

Cancer is a ‘yin’ cardinal Water sign so Cancerians are usually self-reflective, emotional and pioneering or instigating. They find support with Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces; however, these unions can be very emotional and hard work sometimes. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can supply the grounding that emotional Cancer needs to thrive, but Capricorn can be too serious or conservative for Cancer’s liking. Virgo or Taurus are good prospects.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)

Leo is a ‘yang’ fixed Fire sign which is outgoing, warm and often has strong opinions. Though good relationships are possible with other Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius and Aries, arguments can quickly blow up as Fire signs are emotionally volatile. Unions with Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius can work well. However, both Leo and Aquarius tend towards fixed opinions which can create conflict. Relationships with Librans are likely to be passionate and harmonious.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Virgo is a ‘yin’ mutable Earth sign which is thoughtful, careful and discriminating. Virgo can enjoy good relations with Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn but they should guard against the relationship getting stuck in a rut or boredom setting in. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces can offer a real sense of connection but sometimes Pisces might be a bit too much to handle. Scorpio relations could be fantastic, Cancer is likely to be good also.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)

Libra is a ‘yang’ cardinal Air sign which loves beauty, peace but most of all love. Libra is indeed in love with the idea of love and can enjoy wonderful relationships with other Air signs including Libra, Gemini and Aquarius. The most likely issue however is that sometimes there is a degree of detachment so that there’s a sense of not being grounded or practical. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make good partners. However, there can be strong clashes with Aries sometimes. Leo is likely to be attractive.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

Scorpio is a ‘yin’ fixed Water sign focusing on inner reflection and intense emotions. Scorpios are often ‘magnetically attractive’, and Water Signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces make good partners. There can be a lot of emotionality in these relationships however taking both partners down deep into subconscious waters. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn help ground Scorpio in practical reality, but Capricorn can seem somewhat conservative to Scorpio. Sparks fly with Taurus bringing lots of passion in the bedroom or in arguments. Virgo could make an excellent partner.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)

Sagittarius is a ‘yang’ mutable Fire sign being adventurous and expansive. Sagittarius enjoys freedom and needs an open-minded partner so Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are good potential partners, although relations with Fire signs can bring both passion and volatility. Relationships with Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius can work very well. Opposites do attract but sometimes fiery clashes will occur with Gemini.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

Capricorn is a ‘yin’ cardinal Earth sign being solid, dependable and generally hardworking. Relationships with Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can work well as you both work towards the same things. There is a risk of these unions being bogged down by work commitments and seriousness. Ideally, you could have more fun with Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces which complement Capricorn. Cancer matches can sometimes bring too much emotionality for Capricorns, so Scorpio and Pisces are the best partnership bets.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

Aquarius is a ‘yang’ fixed Air sign being sociable, innovative and humanitarian. Air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius all make good partners, and the only risks are you talk for hours and hours and don’t get much done or a feeling of detachment from each other can sometimes occur. Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius can make great partners, but Leo can sometimes seem a bit overly opinionated for Aquarius. Leo sometimes thinks that Aquarius is off in the clouds somewhere.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

Pisces is a ‘yin’ mutable Water sign being emotional, intuitive and creative. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are suitable for deep and passionate relationships however sometimes there can be too much emotion coming to the surface. Earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn provide stability and grounding bringing balance, but Virgo may find Pisces’ intensity a bit much sometimes. Pisces probably doesn’t always appreciate too much Virgoan logic either.
