Being high maintenance is about how much attention one seeks in life to exist or enjoy it to the fullest. For some people, being high maintenance is less of a choice and more of a personality trait. Meaning, zodiac signs that are high maintenance usally depict that character due to the influence of their Sun sign-Lord on them.
For example, Venus is the planet of love, relationship, romance, etc. in astrology, and as Venus rules Taurus, the planet transfers such traits to Taurus natives as well. And having Venus traits makes the bulls attention-seeking in nature (yet they don’t seek or wish for attention as much as other signs mentioned below do).
So be it your self-care love that makes you high maintenance or the zodiac influence, here are all 12 zodiac signs ranked based on how much of an attention seeker they are.
They may not show it, but Sagittarius is the most high-maintenance zodiac sign of them all. The Sagittarius nature of being an extrovert brings these mates a lot of attention, which, over the time, becomes a need for them. And hence, though they may tell you that they only dress for themselves, but well, no one actually does, and Sags are no exception. This nature of them being high maintenance also reflects in Sagittarius choices, especially in love. They want constant emotional availability of their partner. In a relationship, they are not bound by money but would want you to bring out your best self – physically and mentally – for them to consider you.
Aries are attention seekers thus high maintenance to the core. these people use their dominating instinct when they feel they are not being given the importance they deserve. They are a bit impatient too, so they want everything to happen as per their plan and order, even in a relationship. However, as per Aries, it is ok to keep you waiting or not be responsive about something. An Aries partner tends to get sad a lot faster as it is their way to bring you on the back foot. In such a situation, while a caring partner won’t mind going on a back foot, but too much of the melodrama may come to stab Aries back.
Scorpio and attention are synonymous. But the bad thing is that they are not always ready to give the same attention back. Scorpios can have a definite jealously strike when they see you with someone else, but on the other hand, want you to be understating about their ‘close friends. This personality trait of a Scorpio is owing to their constant hunt for attention, which they seek; just so that they can feel special. When in a relationship, if you deviate from giving them attention, they tend to get a lot jealous, and it takes a lot of effort to calm these natives down enough so they don’t do anything rash. If this ain’t being high maintenance, we don’t know what is.
Cancers are easy-going natives until they don’t see a negative signal, which may activate their emotional self and prompt them into being high maintenance and attention-seeking human. Cancerians are super clingy. So, if their partner does not give them the attention they seek, then they will find different ways to get it from them. Cancer peeps test you for how far you can go for love and need you to empty your heart for them.
Taurus people are stuck between being high maintenance and emotionally unavailable. They go through these constant stages in life when sometimes all they need is to be with someone and in other instance, they simply want to run away into their shell. A Taurus’s need for attention is connected with how their life is treating them at the given moment. When all is well, they will be the most romantic partner to you but when things turn dizzy, they might want to run away to spend some time alone. All in all, they can be very chill and laid back, but they know how to get the love and attention they want when you are not giving them enough of it. They will let you know when they need more of your attention.
Leo natives like grand gestures and a picture-perfect everything in their life. Leos are not just a taker but a giver as well. However, they always expect you to bring them something extra special than they have to give you. Also, these natives know that not everyone can afford such big gestures, so they judge you based on the effort you put into doing things for them rather than the cost you put. Aka, a Leo understands you but yet wants a big display of affection and attention from your side just so that they know how much you care about them.
Geminis tend to show a lavish display of care for anyone and everyone and expect the same from others. Being this social is a quality of Gemini, which brings them friends and attention. And over time, they get used to it. So even in a relationship, they can’t fit around people who are not much social (sorry, Taurus). As a Gemini, you like your freedom and are not nervous about meeting new people or trying new things. And that may sometimes lead to your loved ones feeling that you are a high maintenance zodiac sign, which we won’t deny.
Having Libra as a friend makes you see the world differently. They fall in the mid category when considering high maintenance zodiac signs. Libra people are lifelike and have parties going around them where they like to get caught around people to know them better. Yet these natives will do just fine even if no one is looking at them when they dance their heart out. A Libra loves to take on challenges but again, just for the fun of it. They are constantly trying to make their life interesting just for themselves to enjoy. And you not being a part of it won’t hurt them, although they can use a company and won’t really deny it.
Pisces do really need some lap to sleep on but is not as high maintenance zodiac sign as others. Instead, it’s the awesome sense of humour of the Pisces that attracts everyone else towards them. Pisces loves to have fun and laughter in their life and is typically the kind of person that most of us would like to date. Yet these natives can’t find a partner easily mainer times. Or simply say they don’t invest much time in finding one.
Virgos want everything to be their way, and not having that freaks them out. In doing things in their own way, these natives seek to meet a standard. So, it is unlikely that a Virgo would even ask their partner for help. Virgos can be fussy about how they want something done, and it can put pressure on their partner, especially if they are not ok with being constantly being told what to do. When your partner isn’t grateful when you try to help them out, it tends to make you hesitate to help them in the future.
Aquarius natives don’t like to picture them as clingy or needy so they stay inside their shells. An Aquarius wants a lot of lone time for themselves and doesn’t feel the need for emotional maintenance until they have seen a romantic movie. Aquarius are also very aloof kind of people, which means that even if they need that attention, they won’t come out asking for it. They want you to do the talking first. In a nutshell, they want you to read their mind, which makes them a low maintenance zodiac sign.
Capricorn natives are very self-sufficient and don’t need anyone to make them feel the way they make themselves. Capricorns live life practically and understand how everyone has some responsibilities. So they don’t like to overburden others by seeking pampering. Even in a relationship, they are ok with you having a bit less time for them but you too shouldn’t get in the way of their plans. Capricorns are so less maintenance because they know that they are the only person in their lives that matters most.
