People are complicated, but some people are more complicated than others.
While some individuals wear their heart on their sleeve and have no secrets for anyone, others need a lot of time to open up and show themselves as they are.
Maybe they’re afraid of being hurt, or they’re naturally reserved, or they prefer showing a polished exterior to strangers. Regardless of the reason, some people are just tougher nuts to crack.
The following Zodiac signs fall in that category. They might appear friendly and outgoing at first, but they’re actually very careful with what parts of themselves they reveal to others.
Scorpios are often accused of being secretive and reticent, and while they can certainly come off as such, their behavior comes from being selective with the people they choose to share their lives with.
Scorpios don’t see why everyone in their lives should know everything about them. They’re private people, and they don’t like sharing personal information unnecessarily.
Having a Scorpio in your life means constantly discovering new layers to their personalities, which means that the more you know about them, the more you can be sure they want you in their lives.
The more comfortable they are with you, the more they’ll open up, so if you want to learn more about a Scorpio, you need to be patient and prove yourself a reliable person, with emphasis on the latter.
If you haven’t shown Scorpio, through both actions and words, that they can trust you, no amount of time will get them to open up to you.
Virgos tend to be reserved when it comes to their personal life, even when they can appear outgoing to the untrained eye.
They have a lot of superficial charm and aren’t afraid of using it with strangers, but when it comes to their goals and aspirations, their fears and desires, and other intimate information, they tend to shut up and refuse to share with anyone other than their closest friends.
They also tend to bottle up their negative emotions and present a neatly polished exterior, both as a way to try and fool others and themselves about being okay.
The best way to get a Virgo to open up to you is to be understanding and show them it’s safe for them to be themselves with you.
Though they might appear cold and aloof, Aquarians are secret romantics and big softies who’d like nothing more than to have someone in their lives to love and cherish.
The problem comes from the fact that Aquarians want to appear cold and aloof and consciously work to cultivate this persona, using it to appear stronger than they feel.
Their cold personas are an armor they turn to when they’re afraid of being judged and misunderstood, and they’re unwilling to drop them if they don’t feel like it’s safe to do it.
Thus, the only way to get Aquarius to open up is to be patient and show understanding. The more you demonstrate that you’re not going to judge them, the more they’ll open up to you and show you their true selves.
Pisces are well known for their friendly and open attitudes, and their ability to make friends no matter where they go. However, despite their pleasant natures, they’re not very good at letting people into their lives.
Pisces like to see the best in everyone, but they’re aware that they can be hurt, so they’re cautious with letting people in to keep this from happening. They thread a very fine line between helping others and protecting themselves, so people are often surprised to see them on this list.
They fear being hurt by others, so they keep most of their friendships superficial, even if they genuinely believe the other party has their best interest in mind. In other words, while they think the best of others, they’ll still keep them at arm’s length just in case.
Unlike other people on this list, you don’t have to wait long for Pisces to let you in. As mentioned, they want to see the best in others, so as long as you prove yourself trustworthy and interested in meeting their true selves, they’ll willingly reveal themselves little by little.
