Every sign of the Zodiac has a devilish side with the potential to take a promising relationship down a dark path. Of course, no sign is "bad" and nobody's perfect, but here are a few standout behaviors that may be a warning right off the bat. If you're paying attention, people usually show through words and actions what they're all about.

Aries
His
  • Watch out for the "catch and release" Aries who loses interest after the conquest is made.
  • Flirts with other ladies with impunity.
  • Beware the fury within - unless he's channeled it, it could blow up in your face.
Hers
  • Her teasing verges on bullying, and sometimes people get hurt (literally).
  • The player Aries bachelorette brags of the trail of broken hearts she's left behind.

Leo
His
