What does your ex miss about you?
We have all been told growing up that nothing lasts for everyone… especially these treasured things we call relationships. Everyone leaves one way or the other. Sometimes it takes you a long time to move and find somebody new. The cycle begins again: the start off as strangers, you become close; you drift apart and go back to being strangers. But that does not mean what you had with your partner was not true.
It just means that when you both grow as individuals, you grow but apart from one another. And so, there are always going to be little things here and there about your ex that will haunt you in the form of bitter-sweet memories – things they did for you, something sweet they often said that you will miss.
You cannot completely forget them either, no matter how hard you try. And time does not heal everything either. You will just learn to live with that weight and find your courage again to move on to better things in life because you deserve it.
However, missing does not necessarily mean you have not moved on from your ex. After all, you shared a life with someone and they did the same with you no matter for how long; you both got a chance to know each other inside out even if only in bits and pieces…and something like that cannot just be forgotten.
Missing them only makes you more human and less numb to what mattered in your relationship. Holding on would be when you keep missing your ex or the things they did and said and feeling stuck in the past, instead of carrying those memories with you and moving on to a better future.
That is the real trick, to miss them in all the cherished moments you shared with your ex but not turn bitter towards them, to move on and miss them in good terms, all the while wanting only the best for them.

Aries are all about bringing in the fun in a relationship, while at the same time they make you feel at ease with yourself. Their loyalty has its own special place in the relationship because they don’t quit easily on someone they believe in. Life is all about taking risks and making the best of the moment while you still can for an Aries.
When they are gone, you cannot help but feel how your life is a bit boring without them around, how it has lost that spark. Being around them makes you feel like life is really worth it, that the struggles are just a part of achieving something greater. Even the everyday routine seems like a piece of cake when you are dating an Aries.
When they leave, it is like they take away that touch of excitement and intrigue with them and you will miss how much you enjoyed even the littlest things of your life and reality itself. An Aries will teach you the worth of patience and when and how to invest it. After you both part ways, you will miss that quality dearly; not everyone can teach you the worth of patience in fact, they demand it. Also read,
For an Aries, winning means a lot but more than that, when it comes to someone they care about, the process itself is what matters more. When you are with someone new, you will miss enjoying the process of doing something meaningful more than actually winning it, and the fact that your new partner does not view it the same way will only make you miss your Aries ex more.
(April 20th to May 21st)
The Bull is well-known for its stubbornness and the unflinching need for security with the person they choose to be with. They sure are a tough nut to crack but once you get through to a Taurus, they make sure you realize that you are in for life and petty little issues are not going to change that. Even when things get rough between you two, you will know that being the stubborn person that they are, your Taurian partner will not just give up on you that easily; they will certainly put up with your insecurities and misconduct and make an effort for you no matter what.
Their need to feel secure around you also outshines and you will realize not everyone can do that, no matter how big or small the conflict is. So when you break up with a Taurus, you will miss the safety and security they provided you with, as well as the fact that temporary setbacks are not a good enough reason to throw away the relationship. You will miss their commitment to the relationship, which is not something everyone can pull off neatly like a Taurus does. They believe in the purity of selflessness – not just to make their partner happy and content but also to make the relationship strong in the long run.
You might find someone who is probably more selfless than your Taurian ex but unlike them, your new partner will probably perform selfless acts for you in the heat of the moment and have that be enough. Where the relationship goes from there might not mean much to them as it does to a Taurus. You will miss how your Taurus ex always defended you no matter, always had your back and never changed that for anyone.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Gemini is represented by the symbols of twins – they possess a dual nature. That goes for everything. They have a unique outlook on life; where you thought only one aspect existed to a truth, a Gemini will make you see the other side of the coin, hence increasing your perspective in general.
Their ability to make you see things differently is what you will miss the most once they are gone, because life becomes all too dull when you only look at things and realities from one angle. As complex as everything is, your Gemini partner makes you think outside the box – that makes for quite an interesting personality, wouldn’t you say? And the fun they bring in to the relationship is also another factor you will sorely miss about your Gemini ex.
They bring a new color to passion and how to attain it. Having someone like that walk away from your life will make you see how necessary it is to have someone different, vigorous and full of life to share your experiences and thoughts with. A Gemini teaches you the worth of not only seeing things with a whole new perspective but also how others’ opinions matter, and how important it is to accept others without any prejudice, a quality not everyone carries well
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
When it comes to the nurturing Crab – that is what you will miss about them the most. Even if you are dating someone new who’s great and loves you a lot, you will never stop wondering if anyone else will give you a love as purely unconditional as your Cancerian ex did.
All about nurturing and making the other person feel at home no matter the harshness of life around them, your Cancerian partner will always be that calm, safe place you can go to. When they leave, henceforth, that safe place goes away from you as well and you will miss that the most. In fact, you will even miss the clinginess your Cancerian ex often had. Too many people have become closed and guarded and in turn, they do not always know of the right words to say or the right things to do to make you open up and have it feel among the most natural things in the whole world. Due to their stubbornness and clingy nature, a Cancerian never gives up on you and makes you see the beauty in confiding in them, to let it all out, to understand you and your pain at a level you did not expect them to.
Not everyone can give you that. So when your new partner continues to ramble on about some ongoing political crisis or the other, you will find yourself missing how your Cancerian ex always sat beside you being all clingy and made you open up about whatever rough patch you were going through, doing what they could have done in the time to make you feel better and secure.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
Leo might be all highly egotistical and winners but despite all of that, they know better than anyone what and who to give importance to. They will show you loyally how everything you say, do and think matters a lot more than you give yourself credit for.
So when they are gone, you will really miss how much importance they gave to you and your opinions etc, something your new partner might not do as nicely. It is their sense of what is worthy of their efforts and what is not that makes them climb mountains for you even with zero strength – the strong personality type that Leos are – just because they believe in you, believe in making an effort for you with nothing to gain for themselves.
Not everyone will be able to see through the fog and appreciate you in ways like a Leo does. That is what you will look for in every new partner you are with in the future. You will greatly miss the sense of complacency you experienced being with a Leo. When others will be expecting from you and burdening you with inconsequential things, you will miss how your Leo ex always made you feel worthy and strong enough to do anything you wanted, with no expectations or drama whatsoever.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
A Virgo partner is all about upgrading your life to its fullest, in literally every possible way. They have a knack for ordering things, helping out in whichever way they can, making you figure your way out through times and a lot more.
You will miss all of this and more after you break up with your Virgo partner. It is not every day that you meet someone who, instead of draining you like most people do, brings out the best in you and makes you believe in yourself. Virgos are just so pure in all the random acts of kindness they do for your sake that you will find yourself badly craving something like that in your new partner. Being the ultimate good guys, they make life all the more organized yet comfortable to live with and that is what you will miss the most about them – not just the simple things they did for you like arranging your work desk or setting up the cables properly or sitting late at night listening to you vent about their bad day and so forth.
They are the ones who pat you on the back, ‘there, there’ you and make you feel at home with yourself. When they leave, you will forever search for that kind of peace in someone new. Sure, Virgos are the ones who worry way more than they should. That is only because they care for you that much. They are never ignorant of what your needs and wants are and do all in their power to help you fulfill them.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
You might know of Libras as somewhat boring, law lovers who are all about balance but they are way more than that. They are the most gifted among the rest of the zodiacs with charming personalities and great social skills that impress anyone that comes across them. Life is all about letting go and holding on to the right people and things for Libras. Their ability to maintain the balance between the two is the sole factor which makes you, as their partner, whole.
When they leave, you will look for this kind of wholesome feeling in whomever you choose to be with but it will never be the same as it was with a Libra – the keeper of balance and completeness in life. It will be hard to have someone like that walk away and you will miss feeling complete like you did with your Libra ex.
Being with them makes you feel not just complete despite your insecurities and abilities that you lack, but it also makes you feel like the best couple on the planet, what with their charms and wholesomeness to contribute to the wellbeing of your relationship. That is something you will miss badly after you break up with your Libra partner. Even if you get in a fight with a Libra, and the anger cools down, they will later make you see the importance of justice in a relationship – which goes both ways.
They will not just listen to your perspective and your reasons for saying what you said but they will also try to find logic in it, to see who is more just. That simple act of theirs is what you will miss greatly when you sit there thinking how your new partner did not even bother listening to your side of the story like your Libra ex did. You will regret walking away from someone who did not give way to anger and emotions and gave more value to who’s on the right in an argument.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Combine two contrasting traits: a fierce nature and a deep, passionate lover and you get a relationship that can stand the test of time, fate and any other cruel force of nature out there. These two traits are what your Scorpio partner is all about, mostly.
They maintain a well-kept balance in the relationship which revolves around being fierce and strong-willed enough to get things done yet at the same time, give their all to you with a compassion like no other.
These two things are very rare to exist in a person so being a couple that can crash through the tough waves of life and then sail swiftly later…now that is something you will miss every day, each day after you break up with your Scorpio partner. Once you are no longer with them, you will see the urgency to overcome obstacles plus enjoy some deep passion that is often mandatory in an ideal partner.
Sure, you might find someone else with that kind of personality but you cannot be sure they will play both the parts in manner as balanced as your Scorpio ex did; because everyone knows the way but few actually walk it. You will sorely miss your Scorpio ex’s fierce outlook and behavior while at the same time missing the delicacy they loved you with.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You Sagittarius ex’s spontaneity is what you will find yourself missing the most after the break up. They have a penchant for always be doing something new and exciting. The deep value and significance they gave to you and the relationship as a whole will be something you are not sure to get in your new partner.
Losing your Sagittarius partner will make you see how dull people can sometimes be, something you had overlooked before. The fun time they give you is like no other. You will come to experience new definitions of family, security, care and respect with your Sagittarius partner and when they are no longer with you, you will find yourself looking twice at the same definitions exhibited in your new partner that you will realize how beautiful and loving your Sagittarius ex made it look.
It is not only the sense of being loved so dearly and having a lot of fun together that you will miss about your Sagittarius ex, but also how they made you see bright light even in the darkest of times. Their ability to see the positive side of life will be something you will look for in your new partner and you might find it but still… it will not be the same.
Sagittarius might be all about being spontaneous but at the same time, they value their partner’s freedom too. Now when most couple look for achieving that freedom together, one of the two sometimes unknowingly and even unintentionally takes the upper hand while the other feels sort of left out.
Parting ways with your Sagittarius partner will make you see how ideally they valued your need to feel free while being committed and you will miss that more so. You will crave to feel that freedom you felt with your Sagittarius partner despite staying within the boundaries of loyalty, truth, respect and love.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Being a couple with a Capricorn is definitely qualified as being a power couple. They are basically the sort of person everyone wants to be – successful, hardworking and somewhat flawless but yet whatever flaws there are, they carry them well. Being with a Capricorn is like living on the upper side of life – you get the best of both worlds, literally.
So when you have to move on from them after the break up, you are basically moving on to something lesser, something not as great as that given by your Capricorn ex. Their ability to make you set your goals then devise ideal ways to achieve them – that is something that makes you closer to being successful and not everyone can do that for you like your Capricorn partner did. You will miss that badly once they are gone.
You will replay the feeling of joy in your head and heart which they made you experience by making you work hard for what you truly believed in. Capricorns are very strong-willed people. They make their partners feel the same way. Walking away from one makes you wonder if you will ever find someone new with that kind of power. They are the kind to build you up when you are sure of nothing else but breaking down. Their will trust you when there is least reason to just so you could find your courage to carry on in life again. Having such a resilient support system to part ways with will leave you stranded to begin anew, all by yourself.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Being with an Aquarius is being at your self’s best version – at all costs. The phrase ‘he/she makes me a better person’ is something you hear from a lot of couples but in case of dating an Aquarius, it could not be truer. They feel genuinely happy doing whatever they can for you. Breaking up with them and moving on to someone new will make you wonder if that was the best you could ever be, for yourself as well as for others.
Not everyone can see the beauty, appreciate simplicity and find purity in day-to-day acts of kindness and generosity like an Aquarius does and you are going to miss this very much after your break up with someone like an Aquarius. The unparalleled straightforwardness of an Aquarius is what you cannot to be sure to find in your new partner. Their simplistic need to not complicate things lest you get the wrong idea and get hurt is a quality trait not everyone possesses; and you will regret walking away from someone like that.
Aquarius have a temper but it quickly cools down and they begin to see their love and respect for you and hence act accordingly. Being with someone new and waiting for that moment when the anger subsides, you will catch yourself missing how your Aquarius ex easily let go of their anger and how quickly things went back to normal. That sweet normalcy – not just in the case of fights and arguments but in other things as well – is what you will miss heavily after you break up with your Aquarius partner.
Their cool, calm and collected demeanour is not something you can be totally sure to find in a new partner.
(February 19th to March 20th)
The Piscean is quite an interesting personality. They have a deep love for art and good self-expression. They make you see life and all its riches in new colors, ones that will leave a deep impact on you for a long time. Therefore, walking away from someone like that will make you realize how most of the remainder of this worlds views life in such dull colors and that your Pisces ex had truly opened your eyes to the beauty out there.
Their sense of understanding things at a somewhat superior level might have made you inferior but there is no doubt that once you part ways with them, you will surely miss the way they told the most simple tales with such creativity, or the way the portrayed life’s basic pleasures as something far great, or how they made you pursue your goals using the best of all you have got and countless other meaningful endeavors they invested in the relationship. You will really regret making your Pisces partner just another somebody that you used to know after they made you know the worth of everyone else, especially you.
That kind of giving, tender and thoughtful attitude is not a virtue everyone possesses and for Pisces, it is always strength to be kind in a cruel world instead of a weakness; you will look for that kind of strength in whoever new you come across after the breakup.
