Pisces women are fiercely intuitive and naturally sexy creatures. With water in our nature (we’re the fish sign, remember?), we have a fluid creativity that breeds compassion and acceptance—the makings of a perfect partner, right? Right. Well, except for a few annoying tendencies.
Here are seven brutal truths about loving a Pisces (that might sound eerily familiar to you if you’re a Pisces yourself—or even better, if you’re in love with one):
1. She’s intuitive and trusts her gut more than anything.
Don’t you DARE try to lie to a Pisces because she will call you on it. How does she know you’re lying? ‘Cause she just feels it in her gut, d*mn it! My gut even saved my life once when I was a kid. I had a bad feeling about getting in the car with my Grandma, and without knowing why, I had a meltdown in the office parking lot, convincing my mom to let her stay with her instead. She did. Less than five minutes later, the passenger side of my grandma’s car was wrapped around a pole. Moral of the story: Don’t doubt the Pisces intuition, y’all!
2. She’s very emotional.
Really, though. Her eyes constantly glistening, ready for waterworks. (However, that also means she’s an empathetic crier.) In all honesty, it’s a bit of an annoying illness. I start crying as soon as anyone near me starts to. Even if I hate you, I’ll cry with you.
3. She has a lazy streak.
It’s in her nature to stay in bed past noon on the weekends daydreaming. There’s nothing she loves more than a night on the couch with a bowl of pasta and a Netflix binge. It’s better than any club.
4. She’s extremely nurturing.
Like, almost too much. But it’s just because she wants to take care of you. I feel like I play “21 Questions” with my boyfriend everyday. Do you have your keys? Phone? Wallet? Did you eat today? What do you want for dinner? I can’t help it. I’m a nurturer. (And yes, I annoy myself, too.)
5. She’s not afraid to walk away if you don’t treat her right.
The Pisces girl isn’t interested in negativity and she’s certainly not afraid to walk away from a toxic relationship or friendship. I’ve never been able to understand how other people simply stay in drama-filled situations with partners or friends who constantly betray them or don’t treat them with respect. Not the Pisces chick—we’ll gladly peace the eff out. Alternatively, if we stay? It’s the *ultimate* sign that we love you.
6. She’s her own worst enemy.
Self-pity gets the best of her sometimes. You might find your Pisces sitting alone in a dark room wallowing in what could’ve been or should’ve been or regretting what she said or wishing she could’ve done better. She’s her biggest critic, which means you might just need to remind her how great she is. We try to be mindful of our moments of self-pity, but sometimes we just need to turn off the lights and rock out to Alanis Morissette, you (oughta) know?
7. She has a tendency to get lost in her own creative thoughts.
The result? She looks a little unapproachable. Wow, I thought you were such a b*tch before I actually started talking to you. People love to tell me that, but I swear, it isn’t true—we may look off-putting but we’re actually very kind and sweet if you can look past the sometimes-dark exterior. Lovingly lure your Pisces out of her imagination, though, and all eyes will be on you! (See #4.)
