Some people come across incredibly nice when you first meet them. But then later on, once you get to know them a bit better, you’ll realize that they’re really low-key cold as ice.
They can have the sweetest personalities. A nice name and really easy going when you first meet them.
Even a gentle horoscope sign like a Pisces, Taurus, or Libra but for some reason, they are cold as ice at the core.
Whether it’s because of a defense mechanism, a general sense of low self-esteem, or a general grumpy streak; some zodiac signs are cold people.
No matter how nice they are to you, they are way more likely than others to be cold as ice deep down inside.
People that are cold tend to be cold for a reason. They may be hinting at an emotional need that isn’t being met (it seems passive aggressive, I know, but keep in mind, it may not be a conscious thing).
They may be hardened from life experiences that have left them unable to socially function in the world in a way that is considered “appropriate”.
Or, they may be hinting at the fact that they’re close to done with you. In all honesty, if the cold behavior is frequent, it may be that they have unresolved anger issues.
Another possibility is that they’re just honest to the point of brutality (as is the case for the Aries zodiac sign). Not everybody understands that they’re being mean. “Mean” is subjective, after all.
It’s why communication is a two-way street. For example, with an Aries, the closer you get to them, the more they’re going to be brutally honest with you (it’s actually their way of showing affection – yes, really).
Maybe you’ve just started hanging out with one of the signs that made our list and they still seem all nice and great to be around (enjoy it while it lasts, pal). But get ready, the cold front is a comin’.
Check out the top 7 zodiac signs who will inevitably seem nice (at first), but are low-key cold as ice, despite their astrology.
1. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The Aquarius’s superior social skills tend to make them come across as really nice, at first. However, you will discover that their tendency towards being aloof make them low-key cold as ice.
The Aquarius’s tendency towards being temperamental and uncompromising sure don’t make them come across any warmer either. Their habit of running away from any type of gushy emotional expression basically make everyone feel a bit chilled by them.
2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Consideration mixed with a great sense of humor will make the Sagittarius come across as incredibly agreeable and great to be around when you first meet. However, after a while you will notice a tendency towards being impatient and saying the most tactless things.
3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
The Scorpio is the most likely out of the zodiac signs to be what one would consider a “true friend”. Their calm and cool behavior mixed with their ability to express their emotions make them seem genuine and likeable. These things make them come across as incredibly nice when you first get to know them.
Once you get to know them better, however, you will begin to notice that their ability to express their emotions means that they will express even the negative ones and they tend to have violent tendencies that make them way colder than the average person.
4. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
The Virgo’s tend to be loyal and kind, which make them come across as very agreeable, at first. However, over time you will notice that the Virgo is also very practical and overly critical of others. This, mixed with their tendency to put work ahead of play; will make them come across as cold eventually.
5. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
At first, the Leo will come across as warm, funny, cheery and generous. All of which will make your first impression of them: “wow! What a nice person!”
After a while though, you will begin to notice that the Leo is also stubborn, inflexible, and arrogant. All of these things will make them begin to come across as cold and distant.
6. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
When you first start getting to know a Taurus, you will notice that they’re reliable and patient. These things will make you assume that they’re a nice person.
Later, however, you will begin to notice that the Taurus is also uncompromising and stubborn. Both characteristics will make them come across as quite cold at times.
7. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
The Aries will seem nice at first due to the fact that they are extremely honest, optimistic and enthusiastic. Later though, the Aries dedication to honesty will take a very real turn into brutal honesty. This mixed with their short temper will make them come across as incredibly cut throat and cold at times.
