The writing's on the wall...

Here’s the thing: guys don’t want to be assh*les... or at least they don’t want people to think of them as jerks. Because of this, sometimes they’ll stay in relationships much longer than they should, even when their horoscope tells them otherwise.

Being dumped sucks but knowing that someone is only staying in a relationship with you because they don’t have the guts to break up is even worse. You start to wish they’d just end it already.


Check out the video below to see which zodiac sign couples have the worst breakups:

However, the good thing is that if you look at your partner’s body language and really listen to what they say, the clues are there that they’re unhappy in the relationship and that they want out. You can decide if you’re willing to make changes and work on the relationship or just let things remain as they are knowing that a breakup will inevitably happen.


The longer a couple is together and the more things they share, the more complicated the breakup becomes. They may be desperate to get out of the relationship, but how would it affect the kids and the pets? Would it be a joint-custody situation for everybody?

There are those people who take the course of action where they behave so terribly that it makes their partner break up with them. They get to feel as if they’re the victims and hold onto their “nice person” status. A clean, honest breakup is always better and makes it so that you and your ex can be friends or at least civil to each other.

Staying together when the love disappeared a long time ago is painful and complicated, especially if it’s just because your partner couldn't do the right thing and just end the relationship. Astrology can pinpoint the signs he wants to break up and types of behaviors he’ll exhibit, even though he doesn't have the guts to do it outright and end things.


Here’s how you know he’s afraid to break up, based on his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He doesn't take you into consideration when he makes plans. If he wants to travel somewhere or hike Mount Everest, he doesn't check in with you to see if you want to go too. He makes all kinds of important decisions without consulting you and he never seems interested in your ideas.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

He doesn't seem that interested in having sex with you and when you do have sex, he's seems disconnected and not engaged. His focus seems to be on getting off and he doesn't appear to be especially interested in satisfying your needs. You might as well be a hookup for the amount of cuddling and non-intercourse touching you do.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)



He seems most relaxed and happiest when he's with his friends and family, not when just the two of you are out. He's moody, discontent, and nothing you do seems to make him feel better. It's somewhat insulting when you're knocking yourself out trying to cheer him and all anybody else needs to do is take him out for a beer.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He's always advising you that you can do better and pointing out his flaws. It's as if he's trying to reinforce the idea that he's not the one for you. You need him to do a presentation on why he sucks as a boyfriend, you can see it for yourself.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

He used to be very generous and usually paid for everything, but now it's everything for himself. He rarely offers to pay and never invites you out. Now he gets annoyed if for some reason he has to pick up the check. Clearly, he picked up those flowers he gave you for your birthday at the grocery store, and he gave you those sorry blooms begrudgingly as if he knew he was expected to give you something but didn't really want to.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)



Everything you do seems to irritate him. He used to be so much more chill, but now you can't make a move without him criticizing you. The constant declaration of what's wrong with you must be getting old right about now. Maybe he should turn that critical eye back on himself and stop acting like a jerk.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

He stopped sharing pictures of the two of you on his social media. He doesn't want to do a double selfie with you when nor will he tag you in any photos that are already on his Facebook page. It's as if he's trying to erase you from his social media presence and appear single. He doesn't even like or comment on your shares.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

He's always picking fights over the tiniest things. You didn't speed through the commercials fast enough. Really, he's going to make a huge issue over something so small? He wants the two of you to get into a big fight so that your relationship can implode. I guess that's one method of breaking up.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

One of the big signs he wants to break up is when he won't commit to anything. You try to make plans with him and he's very vague. He might have something that night but he's not sure. You should probably go to that show with your friend. He can't make any promises. He's in the process of slowly disengaging from you. This is like ghosting but with ties. He can't totally disappear but soon you might not notice he's even there.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)



He's started talking about his future plans and they obviously don't include you. You know that he's seriously considering taking a job in Europe and that you can't leave your family in the States. He doesn't seem to have a problem with leaving you behind. He doesn't even mention alternatives, he just goes on about how wonderful his new life will be without you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

He's not very affectionate and when you touch him, you can see him trying not to flinch. Seriously, it's not as if you have cooties. However, he doesn't seem to have a problem being affectionate and friendly with other people. You wish he'd just do it already and break up with you. The slow death of your relationship is depressing.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You feel it in your gut that your relationship has changed and you're growing apart. Now it's as if you barely know each other — you're acquaintances, not partners, not lovers, not even friends. He rarely tells you how he's feeling and he doesn't share things with you when he's excited about an idea. Yep, he's not happy.
