5 Zodiac Signs Who Stay Friends With Their Exes, According To Astrology

Relationships are a beautiful, painful, amazing, complicated bundle of emotions and experiences. The ups and downs, the good and the bad, are all part of the deal when you decide to pursue a romantic relationship with someone.

And despite all the time, effort and determination you might put into it, relationships don't always work out. Most of us will go through about seven relationships and two to four major breakups in our lifetime. But this shouldn't discourage you from love and dating—breaking up and moving on is just a part of life and growing up. 

Even if you and your partner choose not to be in a romantic relationship with one another, that's not to say the two of you can't remain an important part in each other's life. Lifelong friendships can be made after dating endsFriendships are relationships after all and should be valued and respected just like a romantic one.

It's not easy to be friends with your ex. Seeing them date other people and move on with their lives can be very painful but the relationship you maintain with one another can come in a variety of forms.

Maybe the two of you keep in contact through texts and social media but never actually hang out in person, or maybe you and your ex have mutual friends so it's important you can keep things cordial and amiable, or maybe you and your ex even still sleep with each other from time to time.

Keeping a friendship with your ex is personal and completely unique to you and your personality. Some of us may have an easier time than others when it comes to maintaining a friendship with an ex so don't get disheartened if you struggle with it. 

According to astrology, here are the five zodiac signs who are most likely to stay friends with their exes, and why,by horoscope.   

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are great communicators and really have a gift for the gab. Your outgoing expressive nature will make it difficult for you to not maintain a friendship with your ex, as you will constantly be calling, texting and messaging them with your day to day events and new gossip. Since your sign rules communication, you probably attract partners who also love to talk—and after separating the two of you will have a lot to catch the other up on.

You love the variety and new experiences. More flexible and comfortable with change than other signs, you are like a “chameleon” in the way you can get along and form connections with a wide array of people and interests. Your romantic taste buds are wild and unpredictable, so having an array of exes, with differing personalities and qualities, as friends will suit your wandering nature.   

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You take love and relationships seriously and are always looking for a lifelong partner in anyone you date. Your vetting process for a potential mate is serious business and if you've decided to date someone that means that person is very special to you, and the two of you share a deep bond--one that doesn't go away after the relationship ends.

Since you’re so close to your family, your mate must have been able to get along with them as well. The relationship they shared with you and your family will make it that much harder to not have them in your life even after the two of you break up.

You can be a bit clingy and it takes a long time for you to let go of love, so maintaining a friendship with your ex may be confusing and hard to deal with at times. Stay honest about your feelings and don’t be afraid to distance yourself a bit if you need time to get over an ex.


LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

As the sign of the scales, you’re constantly seeking balance, and are attracted to a partner who balances you out and shares in your harmonious disposition. Both you and your partner will be very open-minded about the idea of maintaining a relationship after the romantic one ends.

Libras can’t stand being alone and you thrive in social situations. The idea of losing a potential lifelong friend would be unthinkable to you and you would do anything in your power to keep that person in your life. You are a fair-minded person who tries to not let emotion dictate how you feel about your ex--as long as the split was mutual and they didn’t do you wrong, the two of you will be able to keep a friendship with your ex-lover.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is very light-hearted and is always looking for fun. You never take yourself or your relationships too seriously, with your honesty and good humor, you are very upfront with your partner that you’re mostly just looking for a good time. A partner who dates you would understand and share these qualities, making it very easy for the both of you to become close friends after the romantic relationship ends.

You are a free spirit with a huge appetite for life and adventure, nothing bothers you more than feeling tied down. You are the last person to listen to conventional advice about not hanging out with your ex. You might even indulge in the tabooed act of sleeping with your ex. If it works for you then why not? Being friends with your ex is no big deal, you have tons of friends, and your exes make up a significant portion of them.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you are an intellectual, deep thinker with a strong sense of independence. It’s far more important to you that you can connect with a partner on a mental level above all else. It’s not easy for you to open up to people so whomever you date, must really be able to vibe with you on an effortless level. Your friends mean the world to you and you value forming strong bonds with people. For an Aquarius, losing a friend would hurt more than losing a romantic partner and since the person you date is like a best friend, you would be majorly bummed if the two of you weren't able to remain close.

You cherish your alone time and you need lots of freedom in order to feel self-reliant and fulfilled. You don’t see a break up as the termination of a relationship but rather an opportunity for the two of you to expand your horizons and better yourselves. Although your partner may be seeing someone else, the connection the two of you have will always be there, and in the end, you’ll have a lifelong friend.
