"Three words, eight letters. Say it and I'm yours."
Love is patient, thrilling and terrifying.
There could be a plethora of reasons why he still hasn’t said those three magical words. In fact, it can all point to his the stars and can be explained by astrology.
Scroll on to find out why he hasn’t said “I love you” yet based on his zodiac sign.
1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Maybe it’s a surprise your Aries hasn’t said “I love you” yet. After all, they’re known for their honesty and even at times, impulsive behavior. He could have blurted those words out before he went to work but at least he would’ve said something.
Whether it’s to a social gathering or a meeting, your man usually is the first in everything. So it’s a wonder why he still hasn’t said it.
Fret not, as an Aries horoscope sign, he is determined to tell you. This moment is everything to him. It’s something he actually wants to take the time to make special. Sure, his mind that’s constantly on the go could tell you he loves you right before bed.
However, this is one of the few times where he wants where he wants to slow down and be positive that he got it right.
2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
A Taurus man might not verbally tell you he loves you but it’s in the way he touches you. He’s a very sensual man and physical touch is probably his first love language.
This means that he’s most comfortable not telling you how he feels but rather showing you. Perhaps his hugs are a little longer before he sees you off to work. Maybe he’s been constantly wrapping his arms over your shoulders everywhere he walks.
Whatever the case, it may take a little longer for your man to tell you how he feels. Read between the lines and know that he’s trying to show you every chance he gets.

3. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
You remember that feeling of butterflies you felt on your first date with him? That’s how he feels every time those three words are about to come from him.
Except instead of just butterflies his palms are clammy, his voice is quivering and he just can’t seem to hold it together. Usually so quick on his feet with a comeback, it might surprise you that telling you how he feels is a challenge.
He’s nervous. Gemini men are usually everywhere at once, never settling down. Commitment was an issue before he met you. It scares him how he has something he wants to keep forever. Patience is key. Know that he’s trying and he wants to tell you but those nerves can get the best of him.
4. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
There are gnawing thoughts in his mind that eat away at his confidence, especially when it comes to saying “I love you.” He’s insecure that how he tells you won’t be the way you want. He fears the criticism that would come if he doesn’t make this moment perfect.
He’s very emotional and attached to his partner. With that, comes the need to ensure you’re happy. He might not have said it first because he’s waiting for you to. Your man needs to know that you’re in this relationships just as much as he is.
Once you reassure him and defeat his insecurities, no doubt will he be able to tell you those three words you’ve been waiting for.
5. LEO (July 23 - August 22)
A Leo will tell you how much he loves you by the amount of time he allots for the relationship. They hate being tied down and staying in one place for too long bores them. However, with you it’s different.
He wants to show you his love by doing everything with you. He wants to spend quality time with you where he can simply be in your presence as that’s the greatest gift of all. He probably hasn’t said those three words yet because he’s planning something big.
Leo men tend to love the lavish grand life. He likes to be treated like a king and wants to ensure his queen receives the same treatment if it’ll make her happy. Coaxing him that simplicity works too might get him to tell you he loves you quicker.
6. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Your man is probably beating himself up right now for still not telling you how he feels. Admitting your love to someone is never easy. As a Virgo man, he’s not only mulling over the thousands of ways he could tell you but also the thousands of possible outcomes that can come from it.
Would you reject him? Would you not feel the same way?
He’s in his head and too analytical about it. Above all, he’s shy. He doesn’t know how to express his feelings as there isn’t a book he can follow with step by step instructions. Remind your man that everything will be okay and you’re here for him. That will ensure an “I love you” in the near future.
7. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
Libra men don’t want to tip the scale of balance. They’re scared of the outcomes if they directly tell you their love and affection. Right now, your man is probably thinking that everything is fine. Why change the status quo?
It’s not that they don’t love or care about you. Rather, they don’t want to change the harmonious balance you have. The worst would be if you didn’t feel the same. If he admits his feelings but you reject them, he’d throw a pity party because all along he knew not to tip that scale.
Validate your man’s feelings. Understand that it’s not about him lacking loving feelings for you. It’s just that he’s scared of change.
8. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
With his hardened outer shell, a Scorpio man hasn’t said those three words because he’s still learning to trust your relationship. They’re very secretive and hide their feelings in hopes they won’t get hurt.
He’s learned that the only person he can trust is himself. But when you came into his life everything changed. Maybe he opened up and maybe he’s only like that with you. Those are big steps in a Scorpio man’s life.
Ultimately, he needs time. He is worth the wait. As soon as he admits to himself that he loves you, he will share that with you in hopes that you don’t take advantage of his honesty and openness.
9. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
The last thing your Sagittarius man wants is to seem clingy. “I love you” might be the cherry on top to being overly attached. It’s not that he doesn't love you, it’s just that he fears showing too much emotion.
He thinks you’ll walk away when he says those words because suddenly he’s not an independent man. Oh no. He’s become a man who cares for someone other than himself and that scares him.
He doesn’t want to feel tied down to the weight of those three words. However, once he says it he will feel much freer than before. All it takes is a little encouragement.
10. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
He has disliked everything at least once some point in his life (even videos of yawning puppies). It’s no surprise he hasn’t said “I love you” because there was probably a time where he thought love was dumb.
But now he has you. He has something he truly feels for. His self-control won’t allow him to impulsively tell you that he loves you. No, it has to be articulate and planned. He’s formulating the best way to express his love to you.
This takes time. Be patient with your Capricorn as he battles his own doubts and succeeds to tell you that he loves you.
11. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarius men are terrified of emotional expression. The idea of you leaving him already scares him, let alone opening up two those three words. What he doesn’t realize is emotional vulnerability is a good thing. That telling you he cares and loves you would only deepen your connection.
But he doesn’t want to be left alone or even worse, you not feeling the same way. He’d rather take you to a new restaurant or hiking, somewhere that shows his love for you and adventure.
Give him some time to admit his true feelings.
12. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Overall your Pisces is scared that you won’t reciprocate the feeling. Plus he’s worried that the way he tells you won’t be how you imagined. Should he tell you during a candlelit dinner? Or do it in the morning when you leave before work?
He knows how important this moment is and he truly believes he will mess it up. However he is a romantic, so trust that when he does tell you it will be in a very meaningful way..
