He always made you feel like you were less than him. Every time you didn’t want to go along with his plan, he’d make it feel like it was some big personality flaw — that you weren’t exciting enough or that you didn’t realize how important he was. He never viewed you as an equal partner, just someone whose love slowed him down.
(April 20th to May 21st)
His heart just wasn’t big enough for you. Or it was, but he kept it so hidden and locked up that it doesn’t really matter. Who cares how big someone’s heart is if they’re not willing to share it with you?
(May 22nd to June 21st)
He never made you feel like the center of his attention. You could list all the things that seemed to be more important than you in his life and you’d run out of fingers to count on. Worse, still, it wasn’t even things like “family” or “my job” but like, someone he met in a coffee shop yesterday or the sudden idea that he was going to take up bodybuilding. He’s fundamentally incapable of making a partner feel special for a prolonged period of time.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
He sucked you dry. It’s one thing to feel loved, but it’s another to feel suffocated and not be able to come up for air. Everything to him was so serious about your relationship and your feelings and what it all means. It feels lighter without it, doesn’t it?
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
He always needed you to compliment him. And if you didn’t give him enough attention (let’s be honest, who could? The Leo thirst is unquenchable) he’d get it from other women. Your job in life is not to sit on the sidelines and be someone’s personal cheerleader. Your job in life is not to dull yourself down so someone else can shine.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
He wasn’t ever going to make life feel fun. The point of being alive if you’re not going to enjoy yourself? He always made you worry about measuring up and it was this big sense that you’ve disappointed him every time you show up 5 minutes late. Life just doesn’t have to be as serious as he made it feel.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
He made you feel like you had to fight for his attention. Sometimes it felt like he cared so much for so many people in his life, but you were near the bottom of his list because you were “safe”. He knew you loved and respected him and weren’t going anywhere, so he put his energy into others. You can’t go through life with a guy who makes everyone else feel special before you.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
He made everything feel like a competition. Relationships are what you are supposed to want to come home to, not what you have to psych yourself up for. When he’s never vulnerable and always defensive, it’s never going to feel like a relaxing, secure, joy to have him in your life.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
He never took the relationships seriously. It’s awesome to be with someone who’s fun, but every once in awhile you just want to know they can be serious about your future. You can’t go through life partnered up with an adult child. You want a boyfriend, not a child.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
He was cold. He calculates things in his life based on what is going to make him look good. Do you want to be a pawn in that? Do you want to be loved because of how you look to others and not who you are as a person?
(January 21st to February 18th)
He made you feel stupid. Aquarians have a pretty lofty idea of how intelligent they are just because they tend to have more unique ways of seeing the world. They can be snobs without really deserving to be snobs. No one deserves to be in a relationship where their partner is always correcting them or mansplaining to them.
(February 19th to March 20th)
He always made you feel like you were trying to “tie him down” when you really just wanted to be with him. Pisces can get an ego about how ‘deep’ and misunderstood they are and sulk away from the rest of the world. They make you feel like you’re the enemy when all you want to do is love them.
