These Are The 5 Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Be ‘Toxic’ Exes

Taurus may seem out of place on this list because they’re not going to ruin your life just because you reject them. Their ego is much to big to ever express that they care enough about you to throw a fit about something. However, if you’ve ever seen the way a Taurus can go from loving you to being completely, 100% indifferent about you just because they’ve decided they don’t want to be with you (or, because you rejected them), it is C H I L L I N G. It makes you understand how people commit murders without guilt, suddenly all the human parts about them have been washed away (at least, as far as they interact with you). If you have to deal with a Taurus for any reason after you break up, prepare yourself to be dazzled by how someone who once loved you so much will now act as if you’re worth no more consideration than a piece of gum stuck on their shoe.

Gemini are toxic because they will both get over you very quickly and not at all. You’ll be amazed (and hurt) by how quickly they rebuild their life without you. Everything you see on social media is them talking about how they’ve never been happier. And then… you get the texts in the middle of the night. They miss you. Some Gemini can ricochet between “never been happier without you” and “I was so much happier with you” for years. The truth is Gemini rarely know what they want and they usually end up choosing the path other people tell them to take, or the one of least resistance. Because of this, they are always full of doubts about whether they’ve made the right decision — and so they’ll try to string you along with the hopes that you can sway them one way or another.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

A Leo is always the victim of the relationship. The person they were with is a big bad meanie who never treated them right. Leos are incapable of having ownership over their actions and the fact that whatever went down in the relationship is their responsibility (and fault) too. Leos are also big social media shit talkers, even if they do it under a fake account. They thrive on attention and love knowing that as far as it looks publicly, they are coming out on top.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Ha ha ha if you are ever the ex of a Scorpio. No one wants to quit their job and devote their time entirely to ruining your life like a scorpio does. If they ever feel like they’ve been wronged (which, they will feel regardless of whether or not you’ve actually wronged them), they’ll do everything in their power to enact revenge. Scorpios don’t have hobbies, getting revenge is their hobby. Which is really sad when you think about it, but don’t tell them I told you this — I don’t need that drama in my life. If you have a scorpio ex, make sure you change all your passwords. Actually, consider changing your name. Move out of state. Go off the grid. It’s probably for the best.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Capricorns are one of the least emotional signs which you’d think would help them when it’s time to move on, but unfortunately when it comes to their ego they actually do experience emotions like the rest of us humans. First of all, they are going to want everyone in your mutual lives to know that they, a Capricorn, are still perfect. Anything bad that has happened is the result of them being with you. They will throw you all the way under the bus to your family and friends. They might even start a nasty rumor about you to deflect attention away from them and make sure their precious reputation is still pristine. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
