The Most Toxic Relationship Traits Of A Gemini

Geminis are born between May 21 and June 20 and belong to the air element of the zodiac. They're known for their curiosity, playfulness, and social skills, which makes them some of the best social butterflies. 

Often the life of the party, Geminis are notorious for their inability to say no to a good time (via Allure). With a number of quirky and fun characteristics, it's easy to see why someone would be drawn to a Gemini — both platonically and romantically. There's just one problem: Geminis are kind of like the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of the zodiac (via Bustle). 

Sure, every sign has its flaws, but Geminis are famous for their inconsistency, moodiness, and thoughtlessness. Astro Roast columnist Danny Larkin, writes, "The duality at the heart of this sign can sometimes manifest in the form of a tragically split personality." According to Larkin, Geminis have a natural talent for throwing shade and a tendency to retract whenever they're confronted for their "bad behavior."  

The dark side of dating a Gemini

Geminis, though fun-loving and witty, have an unpredictable dark side. To be honest, some have even referred to the Gemini as the "psychopath of the zodiac," per Nylon

According to astrologer and hypnotherapist Patricia Lantz, "dark" Geminis have difficulty empathizing with others and are unable to understand the emotional consequences of their actions (via Love to Know). "They tend to act without regard for others and feel no guilt or remorse," writes Lantz. "It's this lack of empathy that leads to all of Gemini's darkest traits."

According to Lantz, Geminis (if pushed) will exhibit a number of negative traits — manipulative, back stabbing, liars with an impulsive behavioral problem. Oh, and they love to create chaos amongst family and friends. The worst part of all of this nonsense is that Geminis are pros at pretending, until they've gotten what they wanted (via YourTango). So, when it comes to befriending a Gemini, you may want to watch your back.
