Anyone who has broken up with someone or been dumped by their partner knows how painful the end of a relationship is. And no matter which side of the breakup you're on, breakups are hard because you have to plan it out based on your partner's personality.

Some people like to have long, drawn out conversations; others are indirect and like to text, make phone calls or write a letter just to say they don't want to be together anymore. But how someone initiates or deals with this grief has a lot to do with astrology.

And the way a Gemini breakup happens varies depending on your individual zodiac sign.

If you're in a relationship with a Gemini, you know all the reasons why you fell in love, but realizing how (or why) your relationship may end is another thing.

So, why would a Gemini break up with you, and what happens when they do?

Geminis are intuitive and adaptable. They are social butterflies, so when they lose interest — because the relationship became boring, there was infidelity on their part, they became restless, or their partner was too demanding with their needs — it won't take long for them to decide it's time to move on.

Geminis know that breaking up with you requires treating you as an individual, not just like everyone else, which is a plus no matter how heartbreaking the outcome could be.

Always going with the flow, Gemini’s approach to breaking up with each zodiac sign is different, but of all the ways to end a relationship, it works for the airy Twins.

How do Geminis break up with you?

Geminis aren’t a very emotional zodiac sign, so their approach to breaking up really depends on their relationship with their soon-to-be-ex.

Combined with their unemotional nature is their dislike of confrontation. This means that breaking up with someone will be done over the phone, by text — or, more likely by ghosting and just vanishing out of thin air.

However, if they know their ex won’t be too sensitive about the breakup, they could also end the relationship in person.

What happens when you break up with a Gemini?

When the roles are reversed, others may not get the entire picture from Gemini.

Since this sign, particularly Gemini men, are good at hiding their true emotions, their ex may think the breakup hasn’t affected them at all. But really, Gemini holds it in and handles it on their own time, alone.

Even though Geminis may appear to move on quickly, taking chances and meeting new people, the fact of the matter is that it will take some time for them to come to terms with their emotions.

They will try to stay busy, as they don’t like staying still for very long, but even in their busyness they’ll find themselves thinking of their ex.

What Happens During A Gemini Break Up With Each Zodiac Sign

Aries (March 21 - April 21)

When a Gemini breaks up with an Aries, they may have trouble starting that conversation to end things.

Both Gemini and Aries have issues with procrastination, so this may be one long discussion about what went wrong. However, once Gemini begins to talk about why they are breaking up with Aries, they are relieved because they know Aries can recover quickly since they are confident, and can handle rejection and walk away like a diva.

Aries makes it easy for Gemini to be honest with their feelings.

Taurus (April 21 - March 20)

Geminis are wary of breaking up with Taurus, because even though the Bull is warm-hearted and loving, they have a dark side of being possessive and out of control.

Geminis find it safer to call or text to break up, because they don't know how Taurus would react if they were dumped in person. It may be a bit rude, but it’s for the best.

If Gemini breaks up with Taurus for another person, since Taurus doesn't like seeing their mates with other people, Gemini shouldn’t be surprised if they see their Taurus ex on their doorstep soon after.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis know themselves well, so it’s clear that a breakup may not go according to plan.

Because this zodiac sign is hyperactive and ready for adventure, Geminis break up over the phone or in a room full of people due to their own unpredictability.

A physical altercation can occur when breaking up with a Gemini, so the dumper should make sure they end the relationship in a safe place with lots of witnesses.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Breaking up with Cancer is difficult for Gemini because of how sensitive and emotional the Crab is.

Geminis are ready for the waterworks but know that Cancers care too much and don't have an evil bone in their body.

To break up with Cancer, Gemini will sit down with them and bring a box of tissues for all the tears that will be shed. Gemini knows it will be painful to break up with Cancer and will be powerless to make them feel better, but it’s easier for both to just rip the band-aid right off.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Geminis know that breaking up with Leo will be hardcore action.

Since Leo is a Fire sign and usually doesn't take no for an answer, the bossy Lion will expect to hear an explanation of why they are being dumped and why Gemini doesn’t love them anymore. Geminis expect Leo to put on a show and take matters into their own hands due to their intensity of reaction.

Things will get messy, so Gemini prefers to write a letter to Leo to avoid confrontation.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

When in a relationship, Gemini and Virgo tend to argue a lot. So, it’s no wonder that the same will happen when Gemini ends their relationship.

But despite their rough exterior, Virgo is sensitive, and Gemini is concerned because Virgo doesn’t take rejection or adapt to situations easily. Moreover, Virgo has a tendency to hold onto things despite being excellent at communication, much like their soon-to-be-ex.

A face-to-face explanation is the best way to go, and Gemini will expect Virgo to have a long discussion with them. However, Geminis will want to stay friends with a Virgo, even though there is no romantic future between them.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are social creatures and love to talk about whatever is on their minds. Gemini is aware that talking about the breakup, whether it’s over the phone or in person, won’t matter because, luckily, Libra takes criticism well and goes with the flow.

As long as there is mutual respect between the two, the breakup will be easy, Libra will be understanding, and they can maintain a lasting friendship once they’ve both healed.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Since Scorpios tend to get very attached, especially in romantic relationships, breaking up with one certainly won’t be easy.

Jilted Scorpios have a tendency for revenge and won't stop until they get it. Geminis realize that even though they can talk to Scorpio about their problems, it won't register to them, and they will take matters into their own hands.

Scorpio may also become extremely emotional, which will cause distress for Gemini. So, their best approach to breaking up with Scorpio is by ghosting them to avoid all the conflict.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

These two share a deep intellectual connection, and their breakup is most likely because they grew apart.

Breaking up with Sagittarius is like breaking up with the nicest person you know: Geminis don't want to do it, but they realize there is more to life and the relationship probably became stale.

Gemini doesn't want to make Sagittarius upset, but knows Sagittarius needs someone who can better understand their personality. Gemini, not wanting to show their face, will call Sagittarius on the phone to avoid confrontation.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns can hold a grudge, so Geminis walk with caution when breaking up with them.

The Seagoat will never be satisfied with the breakup and will try to maturely coax Gemini into reconciling. To really end the relationship and let Capricorn move on, Gemini needs to sit down and explain thoroughly why there is no chance of getting back together and making things right.

It may have been a toxic relationship to begin with, so hearing it from Gemini in person will hopefully get through to Capricorn.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Both of these Air signs handle conflict at a cerebral level and don’t care for emotional outbursts or reactions.

Still, Aquarius can be a little unpredictable since they stay in their own world, and with Gemini’s indecisive nature, they’ll want to be direct and end the relationship sooner rather than later.

Gemini won’t want to break up in person because they don’t want any surprises. Though they know Aquarius won’t have an emotional reaction, Gemini will still choose to write a letter or break up over text as a go-to solution.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Breaking up with a Pisces is sure to be emotional, and Geminis know this.

Pisces also doesn't have the best self-esteem, so Gemini fears that if they break up with Pisces, they will jump into an unhealthy relationship as a rebound, bringing themselves down even more.

Geminis need to approach a breakup with Pisces with caution and act like a friend. Gemini should not only think about themselves, but about how the breakup will affect watery Pisces.

Do Geminis go back to their exes?

Though Geminis want to avoid confrontation and not show how they really feel, there is a good chance they will eventually go back to their ex.

For a Gemini man, after he begins to stop calling, it’s likely he’s dating other women; don’t expect to have him in your life for some time. However, just because he isn’t talking to you doesn’t mean he isn’t hung up. When he sees that you’ve started to move on with your life, he will start to miss you.

For a Gemini woman, in particular, she has a very hard time letting go of her ex. Her indecision means she will make choices she may regret later.

Because she doesn’t like the feeling of being alone, much like the Gemini man, she will go on dates and try to distract herself. But at the end of the day, she just can’t get over the one she loves.

Are Geminis jealous after a breakup?

Much like Geminis hide their true feelings, they also hide the jealousy raging inside their body. Specifically, it’s one of the biggest Gemini man secrets he holds inside.

He won’t feel like himself at all, and his usually communicative nature will turn him into a bumbling, heartbroken person.

For Gemini women, though they are confident, they hide their jealousy in a similar way, attempting to make you jealous instead by going out with other people. Unfortunately, it won’t work.
