Growing up, we have all been told that nothing lasts forever for everyone, and this also holds true for the most treasured things we hold- relationships. Everyone we love leaves us in one way or another, and sometimes, it takes longer for one to move on and find peace or someone new.
Then, the cycle begins. You start off as a stranger and then become close, and then drift apart and go back to being strangers. But that doesn’t mean that the connection you had with your partner was not true. It just means that you both grew as individuals, but also grew apart from each other. And then there’ll always be memories about you and your partner and they’ll haunt you and leave you with bitter-sweet feelings.
One cannot completely forget someone no matter how hard they try, and time does heal, but not erase everything completely. You can just learn to live with the situation a bit better and move on to better things to cope with it.
Missing someone you were once attached to doesn’t mean you’re weak- it just means you’re human and you value what mattered to you in your past. Holding on to it is what would keep you feeling stuck.
Different signs have different qualities, and here’s what you miss about your partner, or your ex misses about you, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
Aries are known for bringing the fun aspect in a relationship, and they’re the ones who make you feel at ease with yourself. Their loyalty also needs a special mention, because they are not someone who can quit easily for someone that they believe in. For them, life is all about taking risks and making the best of the moment.
When an Aries partner is gone, you can end up feeling that your life has become really boring without them, and how things have lost their spark. This is because, being around them made your struggles a little lighter, and they made your everyday routine seem like a piece of cake.
When they leave, its like that touch of excitement went away, and you miss how you enjoyed the smallest things in life. You’ll miss how the Aries taught you the worth of patience and how to handle things better. If you’re with someone new, you’ll miss the process of indulging in meaningful activities as you had done with your Aries partner.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
The bull is well known for its stubborn nature and need for security with the person who they choose to be with. While Taureans can be tough to handle, they are in for life, and small issues don’t change that. Even when things get rough between the two of you, you know that your Taurus partner won’t give up on you easily. They’ll find a way to deal with your issues and theirs, and they’ll put their effort into saving the relationship.
If you break up with one, you’ll miss how secure and safe you felt when you were around them, and how the temporary setbacks in your life didn’t move them, and they kept going. You’ll miss how committed they were to the relationship- something that not everyone can do. You’ll also miss how selfless they were, not just when it came to making you happy, but also making sacrifices for the sake of the relationship.
You may find someone who is more selfless than your Taurus ex, but your new partner may do that in the heat of the moment, and may not do it out of their nature. You may not find someone who values your relationship as much as your Taurus ex did, and how they defended you and had your back.
Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
The Gemini is represented by twins, and they possess a dual nature, which goes for everything. You may have a unique outlook on life, but the Gemini will help you see the other side of your story, and offer a fresh perspective on things. Their ability to make you see things differently is what you’ll miss the most, because you’ll feel as if life has become dull, and all your realities have just lost their charm.
You’ll miss how they made dull things seem interesting, and how they gave your passion a new color. You’ll miss the different experiences you shared with them, and how easy it was to speak up your mind and share your thoughts and ideas with them. You’ll also miss how they accepted you just the way you are. Never judged you or held any prejudice against you, and that’s a quality not everyone has.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
The Cancerian is well known for their nurturing aspect, and that’s what you’ll miss the most about them. Even if you’re dating someone new who gives you a lot and loves you a lot, you’ll still be wondering if you’ll ever find anyone whose love was purely unconditional as your Cancerian ex had for you.
All the nurturing and pampering that your Cancerian gave you helped you feel at home even when you experienced the harshness of life around you. They helped you feel safe, and when they leave, you’ll end up feeling unsafe and unsure of what to do. Infact, you’ll even miss their clinginess and after they’re gone, you’ll feel sort of empty. Many have also become too closed after their Cancer partner left them, since the Cancerian never gave up on you and made you see the beauty in life.
So the next time your partner tells you about how you both can go out for a movie, you’ll miss how your Cancerian ex wanted to stay back, cuddle and would not rest until you opened up about that rough patch that’s been bothering you, and ended up spending hours to help you deal with it and helped you feel better and secure about it all.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Leos may be egoistic and too proud about themselves, but they know, better than anyone, who and how to give importance to. They will pamper you with their loyalty and you’ll end up feeling mattered and valued- more than you give yourself credit for.
When they are gone, you’ll miss how they gave you so much importance and valued your opinions. Your new partner may not do it that nicely. You’ll miss their strong personality and how they believed in you and climbed mountains for you and made effort for you, with nothing to gain themselves.
Not everyone is able to see through the fog and appreciate you for who you are like a Leo can, and that is what you’ll look for in your new partner, and greatly miss that about your Leo ex. When others will be expecting too much from you and burdening things on you, you’ll miss how your Leo made you feel worthy and strong enough to do what you think you can’t.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
Your Virgo ex may have been all about upgrading life and making it the best and perfect in every way possible. They may have put in extra effort when it comes to making sure things are in the correct order, and you’ll miss all of that organization you had in your life when you were with them.
You may meet someone new who may drain you of yourself, and they will not be like your Virgo partner who saw the best in you and made you believe in yourself by helping shape you into a better person. You’ll miss their random acts of kindness and may end up craving for them badly. You’ll also miss how they did simple organizing things for you and made your life a lot better.
You’ll miss how they always had your back, and you’ll be searching for that kind of peace in your someone new. Your Virgo may have had a little more worry than what you wanted, but you’ll miss how their worry helped you take care of your needs better.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Librans are well known as the boring law lovers who are all about balance, and are also gifted with a charming personality and excellent social skills that can impress anyone around them. However, for Librans, life is a process of holding on and letting go of people and things that they feel are right or wrong for them. For them, maintaining a balance is the key.
When they leave, they take with them that wholesome feeling that you had, and whoever you end up being with, they might not be able to offer you the same feeling of balance in life. They made you feel at peace with your abilities and insecurities and their charms always kept things interesting. You’ll remember how even when you had a fight with them and their anger cooled down, they’ll bring about justice.
They’ll not just listen to your side of the story but also try to find the logic behind your actions, which is not something everyone can do, and you’ll miss that greatly. You’ll also find yourself regret walking away from someone who valued your emotions and ideas like no one else did.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
The Scorpio is a combination of two traits- a fierce nature and a deep passionate lover, and such a lover is that that can stand the test of the time and any cruel or evil force out there. Scorpios have the ability to maintain a balance in the relationship that revolves around being strong and yet, offer compassion to their partner.
If you break up with a Scorpio, you’ll miss how you used to crash through the tough waves of life and go through everything so swiftly later. You’ll miss how they provided a deep passion in the relationship, and how they helped you overcome obstacles so easily.
You may find someone who has an intense personality like them, but they may not be able to play a balanced part as effectively as your Scorpio ex did, and you’ll miss how delicately they loved you and how fiercely they believed in you.
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
Your Sagittarius ex may have had a different spontaneity which you’ll end up missing. You’ll miss how they always wanted to do something new and exciting and how they gave you and your relationship that importance which you may not always get from your new partner.
If you lose out on them, you’ll feel how the world and your new partner can be dull and how your relationship lacks that fun time. With them, you understood new definitions of family, security, respect and care, and when your Saggi ex is no longer with you, you may, at times, find yourself pondering over these new beautiful definitions they gave you and your relationship.
You’ll miss how much fun you had with them, and how they made you see the bright light even in the darkest of times and tempted you to see the positive side of life. You’ll also miss how they valued your freedom and how things were more spontaneous with you and them.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
Being in a relationship with a Capricorn is like being a power couple. They are just the kind of person everyone wants to be- hard working, passionate and flawless, and whatever their flaws are, they handle them well. With Capricorns, you get to live the best of life.
This is why, when you move on from them, you’ll always feel your current partner is less than your Capricorn ex. You’ll miss them for how they spent their time devising plans on how to achieve their goals, and how they helped you get closer to your goals too- which is not something everyone can do.
You’ll find yourself missing that feeling of joy that you had when they believed in you and helped you work hard for your passion. You’ll miss their strong willed personality and you’ll even wonder if you’ll ever find someone with that kind of power or passion. You’ll miss how much they trusted you and became your unshakable support system at all times, and you’ll feel stranded after they are gone.
Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
Being with an Aquarian is a different experience, since you’ll feel that they help you get to the best version of yourself. Aquarians genuinely feel happy for doing whatever they can for you, and if you break up with one, you’ll find yourself wondering if you are really at your best version.
Not everyone has the ability to see the beauty in your and appreciate your simplicity and kindness the way your Aquarius partner can, and you’ll miss that about them. They also have a very straightforward approach towards life and you’ll miss how they managed to keep things uncomplicated at all times.
Aquarians do have a temper but tend to quickly cool down and understand that their love and respect for you is far more, and even when you’re with someone new, you’ll miss how quickly your Aquarius ex let go of their anger and things went back to normal in your relationship. You’ll miss the sweet normalcy after a fight or an argument, since the calm and collected nature of the Aquarian is not something a lot of people have.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
The Pisces is an interesting personality and they have a deep love for self expression and art. They see life in all its colors, and their ideas can have a deep impact on you for long. Walking away from someone like that will change you and your views about the world, since your Pisces ex had truly opened your eyes to the beauty of the world.
Once you part ways with them, you’ll miss how they made simple things in your life interesting, and how they took countless of your endeavors so seriously and invested so much into your relationship. You’ll regret how they made you feel worthy of yourself and their kind and tender attitude.
You’ll also miss how thoughtful they were towards your feelings and how their presence provided you strength in this cruel world, and you’ll crave that strength in whoever new you come across after the breakup.
