10 Ways Scorpios Love Differently

Fellow Scorpios and Scorpio-lovers, listen up!

Born between October 23 and November 21? Congrats! You're a Scorpio. As the eighth astrological sign, our element is water, our ruling planets Mars and Pluto. Plus, celebs like Emma Stone, Leonardo Dicaprio, Anne Hathaway, and Ryan Gosling join our club. But more than that, we love differently...

  1. Scorpios are passionate.

As Scorpios, we're intense. Our feelings run deep. We don't love lightly; we love passionately. Since we don't crush on people easily, when we do fall in love, we fall hard. It's difficult for us to get over past loves and flames since we put so much emotion into them. Giving someone our heart is a gift that we can't quite take back.

  1. We want to be in control.

Being in control doesn't mean being the "more powerful" one in relationships (because healthy relationships should always be equal!). We want to control ourselves, rather than others. Although we may seem aloof when it comes to feelings, we're actually just putting on a front to hide all the unbridled stress and emotion.

  1. We (secretly) still believe in true love.

Yes, we may seem stiff on the outside. However, deep inside, we're as mushy as the rest of 'em. We don't want to admit it, but yes, we yearn for everlasting love, too! (And maybe, we won't get grossed out at sweet stuff if it's especially for us). We pretend that we don't care—but we promise, we do!

  1. We still need others.

Scorpios like being independent, but our pride may sometimes be our biggest downfall. During troubled times, we are afraid to ask for help, for fear of losing control. We just secretly want someone who will love and care for us unconditionally—or just someone who's willing to lend an ear.

  1. It'll take some time to crack our shell.

Much like the actual Scorpion for which our zodiac was named, we Scorpios have an outer shell around our heart—something very difficult to crack. We've all been called "ice queens" at some point in our lives for this very reason. We don't trust people easily since we secretly fear heartbreak. So we really appreciate it (and secretly melt inside) if someone actually takes the time and effort to break our shell and earn our trust. ♥

  1. We are resourceful go-getters who never quit.

After all, love isn't just limited to relationships. When there's something we want or love in life—be it a goal, a job, or just a new opportunity—we go for it. We're intense, remember? We're willing to go the extra mile for whatever we want, no matter how difficult—and the same applies in fighting for the people we love!

  1. You can trust us to protect our loved ones at all costs.

Tell us a secret and we'll never spill it. Give us a problem and we'll help fix it. Scorpios are fiercely protective of the people we love. We are passionately loyal and strong—meaning you can't break our love that easily.

  1. We don't get mad easily, but when we do…

Scorpio is a water element, after all. So we're chill—for the most part, that is. We usually go with the flow, and it takes a great deal to irk us. So when we do get annoyed...well, better watch out. Even calm waters can turn into a raging ocean. Scorpios are fond of giving second chances, so please don't take advantage of it!

  1. Our expectations in love aren't that high.

People think Scorpios require a lot of qualifications when it comes to love. And they're right, we do but only for all the right reasons. We don't enter relationships for the sake of it; we only do it if we are 100% sure.

  1. We love with all our heart.

Yes, we Scorpios aren't perfect but when it comes to love, we love wholeheartedly—without holding back. We would do anything for someone we love. We'll always be there for you, and we hope you'll always be there for us, too.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.


You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”


I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
