Aries:​ ​They​ ​Just​ ​Don’t​ ​Care

When an Aries completely breaks your heart, it will probably happen more than once (if it hasn’t already). Aries are passionate people, feeling all emotions very strongly, but especially those that stem from anger.

Even if the reason for their frustration has nothing to do with you, it is in Aries’ nature to act out of emotion before considering the consequences. They will say things they don’t really mean and do questionable things because their impulsive nature forces them to project their anger onto whatever outlet is available at the moment — more often than not that outlet is the people they care about most.

They will break your heart every single time they lose their patience or their temper, whether it’s by pointing out your flaws, telling your deepest secret, or sleeping with someone else. They will feel justified in it too since they really just don’t care as long as their selfish needs are met.

Taurus:​ ​They’ll​ ​Feed​ ​Off​ ​Of​ ​Your​ ​Insecurity

Taurus is a sign known for having an immutable set of standards, hardly attainable by anybody except the made-up image of “the perfect human” they have inside their minds. Their unwillingness to compromise and vain tendencies often lead to narcissistic behaviors.

A Taurus will hardly ever fail to point out your flaws. They will compare your weaknesses to everybody else’s strengths, especially their own, and leave you feeling completely uneasy about yourself and who you are as a human.

A Taurus is extremely manipulative and convincing. You will end up believing that they are some kind of god-like figure, that you should strive to be more like them, and you will likely find yourself submitting yourself completely to them — even depending on them. Before you know it, you will be completely unsure of yourself, and doubtful of who you could be without them.

Gemini:​ ​They’ll​ ​Ghost​ ​You

Despite being social butterflies, Gemini, of all the signs, is the most detached from those around them. They don’t like being alone so they’ll spend time with many different lovers, but their indecisive nature causes them to rarely establish any serious attachment with another person.

They struggle with any kind of repetition or routine, so they strive to find a lasting emotional connection. When the flame does die out, as it almost always does for the Gemini, they’ll ghost you. You won’t see it coming, probably because they didn’t see it coming themselves, but one day they will just be gone, and there will be no closure — just a whole lot of lingering thoughts like, “Where did I go wrong?”

Cancer:​ ​They’ll​ ​Guilt-Trip​ ​You​ ​Into​ ​Breaking​ ​Your​ ​Own​ ​Heart

Those born under Cancer are sensitive souls. In an attempt to mask their softness, they will manipulate you by projecting their own insecurities onto you. Since Cancers have a hard time trusting anyone, they will make you feel like you are always doing something wrong to hurt them when really, it is just their pessimistic nature.

Guilt-tripping is a Cancer’s way of holding you down. If you give into their pity party and feel bad for them, they can feel confident that you won’t leave because you’re afraid of proving them right and being the one to hurt them.

Little do you know that you are breaking your own heart by beating yourself up over something that has nothing to do with you and everything to do with a Cancer’s dismal outlook on life and relationships. Chances are, you aren’t the monster Cancer makes you out to be.

Leo:​ ​The​ ​Unrequited​ ​Love

Leos are magnetic; they exude confidence, it’s no wonder people are drawn to them. They are natural born leaders and have no trouble achieving whatever it is they set their mind to. Because of such impressive, attractive qualities, a Leo will probably feel way out of your league even if you’re in a relationship with them.

Leos tend to be self-centered and quite arrogant. They will never let you forget that they can do better than you. You will find yourself heartbroken over the fact that they will never love you as much as you love them.

Virgo:​ ​It’s​ ​Not​ You,​ ​It’s​ ​Me

Ah, the cliché line that nobody ever believes — but if it’s coming from a Virgo, they’re probably not lying. Those born under the Virgo sign tend to be overly critical of themselves while still seeking out the good in everybody else. Because of this, the slightest turn of events will have them over analyzing everything, and they will begin to assume that they are not worthy of love.

Because Virgos don’t like to be a burden or ask for help, they will get stuck in their own heads, caught up in the details, and you won’t hear a word about it. They won’t ask you if you’re ok or if they did something wrong, they will just assume they did, and they will leave.

Libra:​ ​They’re​ ​Still​ ​Not​ ​Over​ ​Their​ ​Ex

Libra is a sign of tradition. Usually, Libras are known for being in search of meaningful, long-term relationships. Ironically, they are also incredibly indecisive.

As a result, a Libra will venture out from their comfort zone slightly, but always feel a pull, back to their comfort zone and what they are used to. They will tell you they are over their ex because they want to be, but it is in your best interest that you err on the side of caution because before you know it you will be wondering where it all went wrong only to find them at their ex’s doorstep.

Scorpio:​ ​They’re​ ​Just​ ​Not​ ​That​ ​Into​ ​You

There is absolutely no doubt about it, Scorpios are the most mysterious of the zodiac signs. They take time to get to know, and that’s if you get to know them. Seldom does a Scorpio open up to people due to their distrusting nature.

Often times, you’ll feel like you’re getting somewhere, like they might finally be opening up to you, and then they will make it clear to you in the most subtle way that you have barely scratched the surface. They are especially wary of who they give their hearts to. They will make you want them so bad, and then they won’t even give you a chance — it’ll break your heart.

Sagittarius:​ ​They​ ​Need​ ​To​ ​Experience​ ​Something​ ​New

The thing about those born under Sagittarius is that they don’t ever intend to break hearts, but they do. Being such a free-spirited sign, it is completely inevitable.

A Sagittarius tends to promise more than they can deliver. They value freedom and change so much, Sags should refrain from promising anything, even if they feel like they can follow through in the moment.

Chances are, something new and inviting will catch their eye and they will be off on a new adventure. They won’t consider your feelings, and they won’t feel bad about hurting you either. In their eyes, it is justified because whatever it is, it’s an “experience.”

Capricorn:​ ​Curveball That ​You​ ​Never​ ​See​ Coming

Capricorns come across as indifferent towards anything and everything, but in reality, they are calculating your every move. Capricorns are fearful, always expecting the worst, so even if it seems like they trust you, often times they are are just waiting for you to do something wrong so they can say “I knew it.”

They will completely crush the person responsible for any wrong-doing towards them — and when I say crush, I mean obliterate. A Capricorn will rip you apart piece by piece and hit all the right nerves to make you question every action and reaction you’ve ever had up to that point.

The crazy thing about it is that all along, they never seemed like they were paying much attention, but do them wrong in the slightest way and they will make it known just how far in advance they saw it coming. It’s all a defense mechanism, breaking your heart before you can break theirs.

Aquarius:​ ​There’s​ ​Someone​ ​Else

Aquarius born are committed and loyal when in relationships, but they do relationships on their own terms. In other words, and Aquarius will decide when the relationship is over in their own heads and have no problems acting single before communicating to you that it’s over.

The Aquarius is not at all possessive. They tend to give their partners freedom and independence from them, and they expect the same in return. Aquarius strive to surround themselves with a lot of people, so it is common for an Aquarius to simply fall for someone else. They are known as the progressives of the zodiac, often being drawn to the “next best thing.” The second something new and shiny comes along, they will drop you faster than you can say “ouch.”

Pisces:​ ​They’ll​ ​Give​ ​Up

Pisces are kind-hearted individuals, and will hardly have it in them to break somebody’s heart, but if they do, it’s probably because they didn’t want to put in all the work that goes into a relationship.

Pisces are passionate lovers, but their relationships are often short-lived because at the first sign of conflict they will run the other direction. Relationships require effort, they take time to build, and above all, patience.

A Pisces loves the idea of love, but isn’t really willing to fight for it like you might be. The bottom line is that they give up easy. They will leave because of the slightest doubt in their mind, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
