Zodiac, Heartbreak

There won't ever be anyone like them in your life again.

I’m one of those people that take forever to get over someone. I’m not talking about days or months — I’m talking about years. Is there a little obsession involved? Yes, but not always.

The funny thing is that when I’ve had a hard time getting over an ex, I was usually the one who broke up with them in the first place. I tend to break up with someone too early. Maybe it’s a preemptive strike... you know, end things with them before they have the chance to end things with me.

There have been times where I was too fast to break up and emotionally wasn’t ready. That’s why I take so long to heal and move on. Other times, my ex looked like he was doing so fantastically, it made me feel as if I was missing out and that our life together could have been wonderful if I hadn’t been so hasty in breaking up.

Everyone’s heart is different, as is the way they choose to deal with an ex. Some people can be friends with their ex, others friendly acquaintances, and there are those who feel a clean break and no contact is the best plan of action. There are many choices when it comes to getting over an ex and you may do it differently every time a breakup occurs.

But what is about some people that make it so hard to get over them? Were they the closest you ever got to a soulmate or did they make you laugh even when you were depressed? Some people just have that secret, hard-to-identify characteristic that just implants them in our hearts forever. You can’t even put your finger on it, you just know that some part of you will always love them.

Here's why you'll never truly get over your ex, based on their zodiac sign.

No one will be a better advocate for you than your Aries ex. They'd have gone to the ends of the earth for you or do whatever it took to fight for you. You also had no doubt about their love for you as they showed you the depth of their feelings with everything they had.

If your ex was a Taurus, you know that no one will ever take better care of you than they did. They pampered you, made sure you could chill after a tough day, and they were extremely loving and tender in the way they treated you. You knew you could always depend on your ex to find the perfect gift or action that would completely brighten your day.

You never had to worry that you weren't enough for your Cancer ex as they always made you feel special and loved. When you shared your feelings with them, they listened with every fiber of their being and you knew they really heard you. Your Cancer ex was very careful with your emotions and very nurturing with you. You felt protected and when the world feels especially cold, you miss them the most.

No one will ever be able to make you laugh until you pee like your Leo ex. They're so spectacular and amazing that they make every day extraordinary, and when you were with them you felt as if you owned the world. You'd think that someone so popular would make you feel insecure about their love but there will never be anyone as loyal as a Leo.

When you had a problem, your Virgo researched and did everything they could to find a solution. They called or texted when they said they would and they were surprisingly sweet and funny. You secretly like how they insisted on walking you to your car or how they held the door open for you, because you knew they did it out of respect and caring, not because they thought you were too inept to do it yourself.

When you were with your Libra ex, they were always so happy and joyful that you couldn't help but be happy, too. They also were able to see things from your point of view when there was a conflict and having them in your life just made everything better. Their friends were your friends, and social events were beyond fun and celebratory.
