There's no if's, and's, or but's about it; breakups are no fun for anyone involved. Even if you're totally relieved to have this person out of your life, that doesn't make them any easier. 

We all handle breakups differently - some of us better than others. While some of us have a talent for remaining friends with our exes, not everyone is capable of such a feat.

Remaining friends with your ex-boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife is not impossible. After all, Seinfeld's Jerry and Elaine are said to be based on the real-life relationship of Jerry Seinfeld and Carol Leifer.

Staying friends with the same person who, let's face it, you used to sleep with, isn't exactly for everyone.

For those of us who fall into this particular group, we see remaining friends with an ex as a ticking time-bomb of complications just waiting to happen. Jealously of new relationships that come along and possible moments of hooking-up again are just some of the ways it can get messy being friends with an ex.

It’s called a break-up for a reason, right? We break-up with you and that's that. 
Why should we still remain friends? How will our future boyfriends or girlfriends respond after finding out we are still friends with our ex? You never know how people will react.

Astrology can tell us which zodiac signs are the least likely to ever remain friends with an ex and also their individual reasons why. Not every zodiac sign has the same reasons for not remaining friends with their exes either. 

Maybe you're going through a break-up and want to know why your former significant other hasn't given any possibility of a remaining friendship between the two of you. 

If you're curious how you or the people you know truly feel when it comes to staying friends with an ex, read below to see the zodiac signs who are least likely to remain friends with their ex, according to astrology by horoscope date. 


1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The ever-competitive Aries. You're not interested in remaining friends with an ex, because you are more focused on competing with them to see who can end up better off. Sure, you don't mind them having access to your social media to keep updated with the highlights of what's going on in your life, but hanging out as friends is off the table. A true friendship isn't about competing with one another, and you wouldn't be able to resist trying to out-do your ex. 


2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You loved to be adored, so why on Earth would you stick around to see your ex adore someone else? If you two are going to be friends, you'll inevitably hear about your ex's new relationships. Unfortunately, you're also quite the arrogant zodiac sign who won't be having any of that. Another reason you won't remain friends with an ex? That stubborn personality. If your ex did you wrong, there is no way you'll let it slide so that the two of you can remain friends. Yeah, maybe if he or she gives you a grand apology, but other than that, it's just not happening.

3. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You can't help but be jealous. This doesn't help in relationships nor does it help when it comes to being friends with an ex. You're a passionate person, which is great, but that can also lead to jealousy. Because of this, you just can't deal with the concept of knowing about the new people your ex will eventually start dating. How would the two of you ever be able to actually maintain a friendship when you're constantly bitter about these new love interests? It just won't work.

4. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

As a Capricorn, you're unforgiving and are very much a know-it-all. These qualities aren't exactly complimentary when it comes to maintaining a friendship post-split. If he or she broke your heart, you're not forgiving or forgetting. Even if the break-up isn't entirely the other's person's fault, the know-it-all that you are will put the blame elsewhere, which means if the two of you can't come to an understanding, you'll never be able to stay friends.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

 

You're quite the aloof zodiac sign. If there were marathons for running from your emotions, you'd consistently break time records. You're the most passive when it comes to breaking up with someone. Frankly, you could care less about remaining friends with your ex. It's not that you necessarily hate the idea of maintaining a friendship with your ex, it's that you won't bother to make the effort. Friendship with an ex in particular can require a lot of effort on both parties, and if you're not willing to meet your share, any kind of friendship will fizzle out quickly.
