I don’t trust love readings anymore

First love reading I did was done by a professional. I was told I’d develop a romantic connection within the next few months. And it was accurate! I fell in love with a real person for the first time in my life. I had never even had a crush before that (I’m grey aromantic so developing romantic feelings isn’t technically impossible, but extremely difficult for me). It was an accurate reading! But what the cards DIDN’T tell me was that the person I was gonna fall for was taken. And that their romantic and sexual orientation was incompatible with mine, thus, we would have never worked out even if they were single. I know it’s foolish to get mad at a tarot deck, but I felt betrayed and lied to. Like it was holding this information from me as a sick joke. They didn’t even warn me of any kind of upcoming heartbreak or emotional turmoil.

That’s not the only time I’ve been screwed over by a love reading, though. I have been told by my own deck SO MANY TIMES that I’ll meet someone “soon”. But NOTHING ever happens. Not even developing a little crush. To me, “soon” means within 2 to 3 months at max. It’s been maybe around 5 to 6 months since I did my last reading. I’m tired. It almost feels as if the cards are messing with me intentionally or maybe even just telling me what I want to hear so I won’t feel sad. I know they aren’t sentient enough to do that but it still kinda feels that way.

So, I just don’t trust love readings anymore. I’ve had other readings that turned out pretty accurate (a reading I did for a convention a while back turned out to be entirely accurate) But so far love readings have either not tell me the entire truth or just turn out to be completely inaccurate.

Has anyone else had this experience with love readings? And why do you think it only seems to be love readings specifically that fuck around with me like this? I’ve pretty much given up on them but I’m still curious as to why it happened.

(please keep in mind that I did not share this so people can debate my orientation in the comments. I only shared the fact that I was grey aromantic to offer further context. I will ignore anyone who tries to start an argument about it)
