The stars know you still miss this about him.
Have you ever missed someone so badly that it affected you physically? It can happen. When you say, "I miss him" about someone that’s out of your life permanently, it can feel as if there’s something wrong with you.
When you’ve been in a relationship with someone and you’re not with them any longer, you may grieve for that relationship. Perhaps you were the one who ended things or maybe they broke up with you, but it doesn’t matter as you still can miss them with every part of your being. You wonder if you’ll ever meet someone who makes you laugh the way they did.
People that we’ve been involved with help shape our personalities and who we are. You wouldn’t be the same person you are today if it wasn’t for your college boyfriend, and they wouldn’t have a lot of animals if they hadn’t been with you.
If your ex influenced your growth as a person in several ways, a part of them will always a part of you, even if you’re not that aware of it.
You may casually wonder what they’re up to from time to time, checking out their Facebook page or scrolling through their Instagram feed, or you may call them to chat. Sometimes, breakups are only the end of the romantic relationship and you’re able to stay friends with them, though that certainly has its own set of challenges.
It can be confusing when you don’t want to be with someone and yet you still miss them. You might have an idealized image of them and need a hard dose of reality to remember why they annoyed you or why having a relationship with them was impossible.
Sometimes, your ex just was a good person with a big heart and you’re having trouble finding an improved version of them. Astrology can help you determine why you’re still thinking about them. Here’s what you still miss about him, based on his zodiac sign.
You miss all the fun stuff you did together. You never thought you'd ride that scary roller coaster at Magic Mountain or ride in a helicopter, but you did it with him.
You miss his secret recipe spaghetti sauce and how he called it gravy. You still remember how the smell would permeate his apartment making it the most delicious-smelling place in the universe. You'll never forget how truly yummy it tasted and you know you'll never be able to recreate it.
You will always miss your talks together. It felt as if you could talk about anything for hours. He really got you, and you've never felt more understood and fascinating.
You miss feeling less vulnerable than you do now. Before, when you had him in your life, you felt protected and free to talk about what you were feeling because, truthfully, you felt happy most of the time. After this breakup, you don't know if you'll ever be able to trust anybody with your heart again.
You suspect that no one will ever give you the perfect gifts he gave you again. He had an uncanny way of knowing what piece of jewelry would look perfect with your favorite dress or how you needed a Roku for streaming Netflix.
You miss how he always insisted on doing things for you such as driving you to appointments or backing up your computer. He was a catch, that's for sure.
You miss the shared jokes you had and how he could make you laugh just by raising his eyebrows. Whenever you were in a bad mood, he'd be able to lighten it and make you feel better.
You miss the way he'd catch your eye from across the room and how you'd feel as if he was drinking you in. When your eyes locked it was if you connected on a very deep level and there was no need for words; everything was communicated with just one look.
You miss the trips you used to plan together or fantasized you would go on together. You don't think you'll ever meet anyone else who would be as enthusiastic as you about going on a tour of the British countryside.
You hate to admit it but you think of him as the one who got away. He was marriage material and you can see that now. He was financially responsible, kind, good with kids, and he even had a great dog.
You'll miss the friends you made because of him — his friends and co-workers who were so welcoming and warm. But you know that you lost them in the breakup.
You miss how he was so supportive of you and how he inspired you to go for your dreams. He believed in you and your talent 100 percent. If you're being honest, you still think about the life you could have had together.
