You must have come across several people while trying to date. Some would have instantly clicked with you and gotten along. And you would have noticed that there were these few people who, even after slightly liking you, did not return the affection or feeling but instead made you work on more.
They simply wanted more effort from you, which can be a good game to keep the fire, but sometimes it can put you off as well. But trying to play hard is the nature of people who usually find it difficult to settle before knowing if they want it or not. So, do not worry if someone you are trying to convince is taking time. If they like you and are testing you, they will for sure come along.
According to astrology, some zodiac signs are prone to play hard. It is something that comes to them as an instinct because of their personalities. Let’s find out who and why these zodiac signs play hard to get.
Gemini (May 21- Jun 21)
Often misunderstood because of their dual nature, Gemini people are, in reality, simply indecisive. They have a hard time choosing things. Especially when it comes to life decisions and love or relationship decisions, they are very caring people when in love, and that’s why they want to make sure that while it lasts, at least it’s worth it.
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
Playing hard is just a game for them. They most probably never want to settle down and fall in love which drives them to play hard when someone is pursuing them. Also, they like being chased after. They are passionate zodiac signs, and a little bit of game doesn’t tire them. They are forever ready to drop out of a relationship and jump into another. It’s their personality and not your fault. They are just waiting for you to give up.
Scorpio (Oct 24- Nov 21)
Scorpios are highly ambitious, which we already know. Their personality makes them control freaks as well. They want to have control over their academics, work life, family, and even the speed at which their relationships are moving. If they feel they are losing control, they would take a step back and get into reverse gear. Their attitude is what makes them play hard to get.
Libra (Sep 23- Oct 23)
It is hard for them to choose a menu. They take forever before making a choice. And that’s why they are always unsure before entering a relationship. Libras are too full of love. When they eventually begin a relationship, they are all in with their soul. They know they are going to give in so much effort that they believe in making the best choice and not settling for less. That is why they play hard to get.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
They do not like getting hurt in love. They keep their walls up high not because they are too full of themselves but because they find their freedom very important. They will not open up to you until they believe that you are the right choice. They are sensitive and loyal people and that’s why it takes a long time to warm up for others.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
They are very creative and don’t like a dull moment in life. It is a case of on and off with them. One moment they are madly in love with you, and the other, they feel stuck. Because of their fun personality, they find it hard to settle. Although they enjoy being in a relationship, they would for sure play hard to get to make the game interesting.
Now you know what to do with someone who plays hard to get. Keep trying because they are only taking their sweet time to decide. If they find you worthy and like your efforts, they will surely come to you. But if the game becomes a little too stressful, you should prioritize your heart and leave before it could hurt you. Playing hard is just a part of the chasing game. Some enjoy it, and some don’t. You must make your choice.
