It made everything hurt even more.
It’s easy to think that those who break up with us got away free and clear. We think that they move on with their lives without a look backward as if the minute the relationship was over, they erased us from their memories and their minds.
The truth is that men can get just as emotional as women over a breakup. They can cry, obsess, and go over what they did wrong.
Some men may seem completely fine on the outside but they actually feel like they’ll never find anyone like their ex. It takes time to get over a breakup and an ex, sometimes far longer than you expect, and even when you’re in a new relationship you still can have moments of longing and remorse over the one that got away.
Think about how much goes into a relationship. Even just getting together in the first place had to involve a huge effort. Most people don’t get involved with another person just because; they do it because they feel a connection and being with that other person makes them happy.
Some people never get over their exes 100 percent, and they keep the memories of that person deep in their heart. Your ex helped shape who you are and no matter how badly the relationship may have ended, hopefully, you still have some good memories of them and they of you.
For some, ending a relationship means that they do not stay friends and that there should never be any contact between the two. And even if you do stay friends, it’s generally not appropriate to quiz your ex on what they miss about you. Here’s what gave him the biggest heartbreak, based on your zodiac sign.
It still hurts for him to think about how game you were for practically everything and how your energy level never stopped surprising him. You made every day an adventure and your enthusiasm was contagious. When he remembers how competitive you were, he'll wonder if he'll be able to live his best life without you, and then he'll feel another stab to the heart.
When he thinks about the way you take care of the people you love, his heart breaks all over again. He never felt so loved and protected. Your house and embrace were both safe havens for him.
After your breakup, it was your amazing intellect and ability to talk to anyone about anything that continues to hurt your ex repeatedly. He knew he could take you to any social event and not only would you make him look good, but you shined on your own. He knows that he's unlikely to be with anyone as spectacular at communication as you were.
You'll go out of your way to help someone, and it's your kindness and compassion that broke his heart the most. You aren't a game player and he knew that you shared your emotions — they were the real deal.
He'll miss your big heart and the way you captivate everyone that knows you. You're the brightest star he ever knew and his life has seemed dull since you're no longer in it.
His heart re-breaks when he thinks of how you solved every problem and repaired everything that needed fixing — including him. He knows he'll never find someone as brilliant and capable as you are.
Life with you was like being on vacation — sensual, pleasurable, and romantic. If he was feeling down, your smile could bring him out of his funk. Because you're idealistic, he learned to be able to see things from opposing points of view. He knows you made him a better person.
You wouldn't be surprised to know that he misses the hot sex you had, but what really breaks his heart is how he no longer experiences his life with that passion you bring to the relationship. The volume has been turned down on his life without you in it.
He can't laugh or smile without remembering how you made him laugh his ass off and how you made every day fun and fascinating. Your optimism and joy made you impossible to replace.
Losing you was the biggest mistake he ever made. Everything about you made you the perfect candidate for a long-term relationship. He could kick himself for letting you go and he'll continue to miss how strong, dependable, successful and delightful you were.
There's something very appealing about someone who doesn't play by the rules but still has a definite set of values. Knowing that he'll never again witness your incredible mind and creativity is heartbreaking in and of itself, but losing someone who made him feel unconditionally accepted and loved was even worse.
When he was with you, he was at his most creative and imaginative; you inspired him to go for his dreams and follow his passion. When he thinks of you, it's with vivid colors and happiness. You showed him the beauty and resonance of art and now he can't look at a painting or hear music without wanting to cry.
