Gemini is a sign that gets a bad rap, so it’s possible you already know some of a Gemini man’s negative traits.
It can be challenging to get into a relationship with a Gemini man because of the nature of their negative traits.
The bad traits of Gemini shouldn’t necessarily turn you off from Gemini men entirely. All signs have positive and negative characteristics, after all.
Gemini men can be fickle, inconsistent, and indecisive. You might spend a lot of time getting to know him and then find out that he was putting on a front and is quite different than he first appeared.
If you notice some of these traits in your Gemini partner, don’t worry. A Gemini man in love may be more than willing to work on his more negative traits.
Gemini men can be all over the place. He might be super into woodworking one week, and the next he’s abandoned all his projects and moved on to roller skating.
This doesn’t just apply to hobbies or minor things. A Gemini is inconsistent with work, school, friendships, romantic relationships, and every other area of their life.
He might have a series of short-lived relationships, one right after the other. Maybe he thought they were all “the one” until he got bored or found something (or someone) else to hold his attention.
He might move often or switch jobs every couple of years. If you are somebody who craves stability and routine, this can be highly frustrating.
Gemini men in relationships are capable of sticking with one person. They just need to be constantly stimulated.
Falling into a routine isn’t their favorite thing, and if they feel bored, they’ll do anything they can to feel excited again.
Gemini is a high-energy sign. This can be exciting, but it can also lead to some of Gemini’s negative traits.
It’s not wrong to be nervous sometimes. A healthy amount of anxiety can even be a good thing. However, there are times where a Gemini man’s anxiety affects his life negatively.
This anxiety can cause problems when working under pressure.
For example, if he is worried about his performance at work or his ability to do a particular project, he might just crack and be unable to follow through when the time comes to make a decision.
If a Gemini man in your life has extreme anxiety, he might require a lot of reassurance. He might also need a lot of assistance in making decisions or working up the courage to do things he’s nervous about.
While, yes, a Gemini man may not do certain things due to anxiety, he can also be extremely impulsive when it comes to things that don’t cause him anxiety.
This makes sense, considering the overall Gemini personality. They are all over the place. Also, they are carefree in certain circumstances and specific areas of their life.
Having a spontaneous partner can be fun sometimes, but it can also get to a point where it’s too much.
Constant impulse-buying can cause financial problems if the Gemini man isn’t watching his spending.
For example, deciding to go on a last-minute road trip seems like a great idea until you run out of gas or realize you have nowhere to stay for the night.
He’ll get into relationships he probably shouldn’t because he’s living in the moment and not thinking about whether or not he’s ready for a relationship or if that person is a good fit for him.
One of the most common Gemini stereotypes is that Gemini has “two personalities” or that they are two-faced. In some ways, this can be true, though it isn’t always as drastic as others make it sound.
This means that a Gemini man may seem to be a different person in public than he is in private. He might also act differently in front of different people.
It’s also possible he has a side of him he rarely shows to anybody. While Geminis can be social and extroverted, they have an inner world they don’t like to reveal to just anybody.
You may get to know him, only to see him become a different person after you two become close. This sucks because sometimes, that “different person” doesn’t end up being somebody you want to be with.
Decision-making is one of Gemini’s weaknesses. As mentioned before, anxiety can be one of the reasons behind this, but it isn’t the only thing causing Gemini’s indecisiveness.
Geminis love to gather information. This is a communicative sign, after all. If you ask them to decide between two things, they might want all the information available about them before deciding.
Gemini can also see all sides of an argument. If you disagree with one of his friends about something, he’s undoubtedly going to hear both his friend’s side and yours.
He might think you both have good points and refuse to say who he thinks is right.
This can seem at odds with his impulsive nature, but it’s not. When he does something impulsively, he’s not thinking about it beforehand and making a decision.
When he has the time to think or if he’s asked to make a decision, that’s when he has a problem acting.
Gemini’s emotional problems aren’t always apparent, but they are lurking there beneath the surface.
A Gemini man might be having a great time one moment and complaining about everything the next.
If he’s having a bad day, minor things can affect his emotions significantly. For example, feeling bored can cause him to become depressed or irritated as well.
A Gemini man might also want to appear cheerful and charming at all times, even when not feeling well. But, unfortunately, pretending to be happy can only be done for so long before something causes that veneer to crack.
When he does crack, it might seem like he’s suddenly gone from being joyful and carefree to being irritated by everything.
That impulsive nature of Gemini men can lead to them being irresponsible as well.
Gemini men like to have fun. They like to be the life of the party, and they like to gain new experiences. This is a man who wants to always feel stimulated.
But, unfortunately, he’s not always responsible in his quest for excitement.
He doesn’t like to be bored. So if he’s got house chores that he doesn’t want to do, he’ll ignore them in favor of something else he finds more fun.
Likewise, he might ignore his responsibilities at work or in a relationship because he doesn’t find them “fun” as well.
This is a man who might still be in his bachelor partying phase when you’re ready to settle down. He might be unwilling to pull his weight in your relationship simply because he finds it boring to do so.
Gemini men can stretch the truth, tell “white lies,” gossip, and outright lie to your face without batting an eye.
He’s good at lying too. So you may not even realize the story he’s telling is entirely made up or that his excuse for having to cancel plans is untrue.
He might pretend to like somebody just because he wants something out of them. For example, he’ll trash-talk his best friend just to make himself look better in the eyes of another friend who doesn’t like them.
He’ll tell you one thing and somebody else an entirely different, contradictory thing. If this causes interpersonal problems, he’s likely to just sit back and enjoy the drama too.
If he does get called out, he’ll talk his way out of it or attempt to convince everyone that he isn’t the one who is mistaken.
9. Quick to Anger
Considering how charming Gemini men can be, it might be surprising to some people that they have a quick temper.
While he might appear calm at the beginning of an argument, if he senses that he’s lost the upper hand or you say something that pushes his buttons, he’s likely to explode in anger.
Gemini men will also get upset if they feel like somebody is trying to make them feel stupid.
Fortunately, his anger is easily diffused. Just as quickly as his temper appears, it goes away. Telling a joke or changing the subject might be all it takes to calm him down.
One of Gemini’s bad traits in relationships is their ability to manipulate the people around them.
Gemini men can be well-spoken, intelligent, and charming. Those aren’t bad things. However, he can use these traits in a bad way to manipulate people.
If he dislikes somebody else in your life, he’ll use his ability to lie and the fact that you think highly of him to turn you against them.
If the two of you break up, he’ll bend the truth to make it look like it was all your fault.
A Gemini man might not actively be trying to be manipulative either. Instead, he’ll just become so focused on getting his way or making others like him that he doesn’t realize how he’s treating the people around him.
