The best and worst star signs to be in a relationship with, according to new research

When it comes to relationships, there is no one size fits all; we all just have to do a lot of searching and kissing of frogs before we find ‘the one’. We all have one person designed to fit us perfectly and love us unconditionally no matter how many times we forget to take the bins out or how moody we are before our morning coffee. There is no manual, no cheat sheet, no quick fix for finding your person, you just have to hope – and date a lot 

And yet, that doesn’t stop people from trying, and one of the more popular compatibility tests is, of course, horoscopes. We all know them; we all have a love-hate relationship with them, and we all listen to what they have to sayat least a tiny bit. There are literally thousands of articles out there telling you that, as an Aquarius, you will have the best sex of your life with a Capricorn, but your communication skills will fail and there will be red flags around every corner.  

However, Buzz Bingo has actually gone that one step further: they’ve done a little bit of research into celebrity relationships and their star signs, and they’re convinced they now know the star signs most likely to be in – and maintain – a long-term relationship. Perfect if you’re a romantic looking to settle down, and if you’re a bit of a commitment-phobe then at least you know who to avoid.  And with cuffing season well and truly upon us, there is no better time to streamline your dating habits.  

The data is actually pretty interesting if like me, you are a bit of a horoscope obsessive (and if you’re not then I’m not entirely sure why you are reading this article). Capricorns are supposedly the best in long term relationships, with an average of five years and six months, while Scorpio’s are the worst lasting just two years and seven months. I guess when you are born during spooky season, it’s not surprising if you have a tendency to ghost people.  

Coming in second and third were Aquarius with four years and 24 days, and Aries with three years and 10, so I guess it really does pay to be born a winter baby – at least for relationships. Here’s the full line up, from best to worst: 

1st: Capricorn: 5 years, 6 months 

2nd: Aquarius: 4 years, 24 days 

3rd: Aries: 3 years, 10 months  

4th: Libra: 3 years, 9 months 

5th: Gemini: 3 years, 9 months 

6th: Taurus: 3 years, 6 months 

7th: Pisces: 3 years, 6 months 

8th: Sagittarius: 3 years, 5 months 

9th: Cancer: 3 years, 4 months 

10th: Virgo: 3 years, 2 months 

11th: Leo: 3 years, 5 days 

12th: Scorpio: 2 years, 7 months 

Don’t let these figures put you off though. Some of the best couples have included Capricorns and Scorpios (see Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry for proof), and Aquarius and Capricorns can fizzle out almost quicker than it began – just like Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding’s 31-day romance.  

Modern day relationships, don’t you just love them? 

 

*PSA: this is conjecture to prove a point, and not in any way based on real information. If you’re an Aries dating a Capricorn, please don’t sue me.
