Why You Miss Him So Damn Much, Based On His Zodiac Sign

the one that got away

Huge mistake on your part.

When you break up with people too quickly like I do, it may not take long for you to regret your actions. You might have been so angry with your partner that you couldn't see being in their presence another moment longer, or rather than discuss the issues that you had with them, you wanted to end things without talking about them.

They say hindsight is twenty/twenty and that’s certainly when you end a relationship before it has run its course. It could be the next day, the next month, or even the next year, but suddenly you can see everything so clearly. You see your responsibility in the failure of the relationship, what could have been done to save it, and how in many ways your ex was the person for you.

Sometimes you can get back together with them and try again, but most of the time, they’ve already moved on. Well, they’re a catch and just because you couldn't see it at the time, it doesn't mean that they weren’t snatched up the moment they were free. Perhaps your pride prevents you from making any kind of move towards getting back together and so you just suck up your feelings and do nothing.

You know that you could have had a good life with your now-ex and it hurts to see them (usually via social media) having that wonderful life with someone else. Sometimes you deliberately ask your mutual friends about him and his new girlfriend just to torture yourself. It could have been you on that trip to the Bahamas or buying that amazing Craftsman home.

Maybe it should have been you but you’ll never know for sure because you let him — no, you sent him — away. And now he’s part of your past and will never be part of your future. This is what makes him the one that got away, based on his zodiac sign.

He made you look forward to every day because you never knew what to expect. He challenged you to live your best life and was a very upbeat person. His confidence and sense of self rubbed off on you and made you feel as if you too could accomplish anything. He never had any fear but you never fully appreciated his fearlessness and his adventurous spirit until after he was gone.

He did whatever was in his power to make sure that you were happy and that you felt secure. No one will ever care for you the way that he did and he was so thoughtful, always surprising you with the perfect gift or making sure that you felt loved. He was so patient even when you couldn't make up your mind about something insignificant like what to order at a restaurant. You suspect he was the best you'll ever have.

He really got you. It felt like your souls were connected when you'd talk forever about anything and everything. He matched your wit and your intelligence and seemed to understand you when you felt you weren't being entirely clear with your words. He made everything better just by his being there. You thought he wouldn't be faithful, but you didn't know behind that flirty persona was someone with a ride or die sensibility.

What were you thinking? How many men out there not only will give you a shoulder to cry on but have empathy for whatever emotional state you were in? You knew that you could show him all the sides to your personality and all your emotions and he wouldn't run. He was compassionate, loyal, and you never felt more understood. You loved the way he gave you what you needed but never expected anything in return.

When you were with him, you felt special — as if the sun had shown only on you. It was incredible to be with someone so vibrant and dazzling but who also made sure that you knew you were the most important thing to him in the world. The relationships you have after him will always seem a little less than spectacular and slightly tarnished because he was the one that got away. You had the best and you gave it up.

You mistakenly thought that it's easy to find someone that you can trust with your whole heart like you could with him. Sadly, that's not the case at all. He was always there supporting you, assisting you in whatever you needed, and always making sure you felt secure and loved. He always knew the answers, even to the questions you were afraid to ask.

You should have locked him down rather than ending things with him. You've never experienced being loved like you were loved by your Scorpio man. He was passionate, brilliant, and he made you feel loved in a million ways. Sex with him was unbelievable and just being with him made you feel stimulated and energized. He proved to you that you can be ambitious, focused, and still have a balanced life.

He didn't just give you love, he gave you the world. He showed you how to live a life without restrictions — to travel, experience new things, and how to be comfortable in your own skin. He was so funny and smart and always could lift your mood when you were feeling down. He was extremely generous with you, not just with material things but with his time, his focus, and his love.

He's was your rock and that allowed you to explore and discover without feeling as if you had no foundation. He was comforting, reliable, and wanted to build a life with you.

You wonder why you let him go when he was so accepting of you and the unique aspects of your personality. He more than encouraged you to reveal who you were and to not be afraid of being judged. He made you feel as if you were a truly exceptional being and that if people couldn't accept you for who you really are, then screw them. You came into your own with him and became your true self. He was your friend, your lover, your family, and now he's the one that got away.

He was passionate, empathetic, kind, and gave you unconditional love. You knew that if you made a mistake or screwed up big time, he'd take you back with open arms. You might not have had the most realistic relationship but it was full of beauty, inspiration, and love. He made you feel beautiful because to him, you were a work of art. You can only hope that whoever comes after you gives him the love he truly deserves.
