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 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 is 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 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 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. You can also read our very famous articles on how to love an Aries and how you should be loved.

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 as 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.

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.

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?

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.Also, read our separate article for Geminies: 5 Easy Ways to Love a Gemini
