Ever wonder why that one ex is still leaving heart emojis on all your TikToks? Or how that new coworker went from acquaintance to bestie in the blink of an eye? Well, it could have everything to do with their zodiac signs. While a simple, "It's not you, it's me" does the trick for some, certain signs need multiple, deep conversations to let go. And while some signs revel in boundaries and alone time, others need constant affirmation to know they're still in good standing with you. Think you might be (or know) a stage-five clinger? Here are the top six clingiest signs in the zodiacs, ranked.
The 6 Clingiest Zodiac Signs (And No, Scorpio Doesn't Make the Cut)
6. Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)
Known for their active imaginations, Pisces may want to have a long deep talk to get to the bottom of why a relationship failed. Otherwise, brace yourself for those "Was it something I did?" "How can I make this better?" texts at two in the morning. Pisces are not known to be party animals, so if you're outgoing, (talking to you, Sagittarius) you'll find yourself feeling trapped and smothered by a Pisces's love. When you want to hang out with friends and try new adventures, they'll still want alone time with just you.
5. Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
Leos are constantly seeking praise and appreciation, so if you're a person who has no issue affirming others, you may find yourself latched onto a Leo who's clinging on for dear life. Leos are also known to be quite prideful, so they may be hanging on to protect their ego.
4. Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Perfectionist Virgo wants to comb through each and every detail of an issue you may be struggling with, even if you just want to breathe for a minute. Known as the doers of the zodiac, be careful not to call on a Virgo for help until you want to set a plan in motion—because set in motion, they will, from start to finish.
3. Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Libras value moving at their own pace, so they'll cling on to avoid letting you beat them to the punch. And even if you're not breaking up or letting go, these social butterflies will want to tag along by your side, whether you're going to a party or just meeting up with another friend for coffee. Party of three, please?
2. Cancer (Jun 21 - July 22)
Known for their nurturing nature, Cancers are prone to overcompensate when they feel you pulling away. They'll be the perfect sign to have around when you're going a rough patch, though—cooking for you, cleaning after you and listening to you until you're back on your feet. However, they can be tough to get rid of when you need some space to recuperate.
1. Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
The bull. Tauruses take the top spot because they have two modes of operation—all in or all out. Once they set their sights on you, it's easy to see why they won't let go. Taurus is also ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty so a Taurus in love can be hard to shake off.
