(March 21st to April 19th)

You shouldn’t go back to him because you’re so much more fun without him, and everyone knows it. When you’re with him, you make yourself mild, when you’re not with him you’re fiery hot. Give yourself some time on your own. Let your inner fun-loving, crazy self free with no worries about anyone but you.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You shouldn’t go back to him because honestly you know better. You know you shouldn’t text him, you know you shouldn’t stop by his part of the city, and you definitely know you shouldn’t grab a drink at the bar he always goes to. You already know why you shouldn’t go back to him, so don’t.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You shouldn’t go back to him because as soon as you do, you’re going to realize why the two of you didn’t work out in the first place, and you’re going to want to end it all over again. You’re back and forth because you have trouble making decisions, but your relationship failed for a specific reason, or two, so remember them when you think about going back to him.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You shouldn’t go back to him because you need to branch out. You can’t keep recycling through ex boyfriends just because you’re comfortable around them. Meet someone new! Give a guy you don’t already know a chance. It’s not going to be comfortable at first, but be optimistic. Make the uncomfortable moments as fun as you possibly can, and you’ll start to truly fool yourself.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You shouldn’t go back to him because you can and will find someone else that loves you the way you deserve to be loved, and deep down you know that. You’re confident and motivated, plus you’re a charmer. Charm someone who is worth your time and energy, not your ex.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You shouldn’t go back to him because the only reason you’re even giving it consideration, is because you give everything consideration. You think entirely too much, and you’re thinking way too much about him and what went wrong. Stop tormenting yourself over all of the could’ve, should’ve, would’ve-s. Bottom line is, you didn’t, so stop ruminating over a relationship that has already ended, and move on. Tough love.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You shouldn’t go back to him because there are so many other guys who are dying to be with you. And they’re willing to treat you in all the right ways that he didn’t. You don’t want to acknowledge anyone who’s interested in you because you’re still caught up on him, and you don’t even realize what you’re missing.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You shouldn’t go back to him because you’re smarter than giving out second chances that are clearly not deserved. You’re completely aware that his words and his actions didn’t match up. Why are you ignoring the facts? That’s not like you at all. Don’t make exceptions for him.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You shouldn’t go back to him because there’s so much more you want to experience that you honestly just have to do on your own. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to do things on your own, even when you’re in a relationship, and if he couldn’t accept that, it’s a good thing you’re no longer with him. Do the things you want to do without him. Don’t let any man hold you back.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You shouldn’t go back to him because you’re already stressed from everything else going on in your life, do you really need the added exhaustion of trying to date your ex? Make yourself busy, you’re good at that. Distract yourself with everything else, and eventually you just won’t think of him at all.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You shouldn’t go back to him because you are completely capable of being alone. You’re independent and smart, and you don’t need to date your ex because you let loneliness get the best of you. Don’t be with someone because you’re lonely, be with them because you don’t want to picture your life without them in it.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You shouldn’t go back to him because this failed relationship is teaching you things about yourself you never would’ve learned if you were still dating. You’re inspired in ways you don’t even realize, and it’s because he’s no longer in the picture. Your breakup is basically healing itself (and you in the process). Going back to him would open that wound all over again. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
