(March 21st to April 19th)
You’re jealous of his ex because you like to be the best at everything. You want to be the prettiest, smartest, most accomplished person in the room and you want to be better than all of the girlfriends he had before you. You can’t be better than them in every single way, so you become jealous of the one thing they have over you, whatever that may be.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’re jealous of his ex because no matter how many times you tell yourself he loves you and not her, you think about every way the two of you are different, and it gets to you. You might not wish you were more like her, but you wonder how he sees your differences, and if he wishes you had some of her attributes, whether they’re physical or not.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
You’re jealous of his ex because you occasionally think about your exes, and you’re thinking he probably does the same thing. You don’t necessarily think about getting back with them, but they take up a little space in your head that you can’t seem to clear out. You’re worried that his ex has a space inside his head too, and it bothers you. You don’t want anyone to take up space in his head but you.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
You’re jealous of his ex because his family and friends remember her, and because she’s in old family photo albums that you hate seeing. You don’t like to think that she was once a huge part of his family’s life because it makes you feel like a replacement, a place holder. You’re a part of his family now, not her, and you’re a little jealous that someone made a mark there before you.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
You’re jealous of his ex because how dare he date anyone other than you? You understand that he dated her when you weren’t in the picture, but you hate to think about him with anyone else. You are his number one even if you came after her.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
You’re jealous of his ex because you constantly wonder what kind of girlfriend she was like in their relationship and whether or not you measure up. You wonder how she was in bed, if she made him breakfast every morning, if she was way more comfortable naked around him than you are. You compare the things you don’t even know about her to yourself and make assumptions that aren’t based on reality. You don’t tell him all these crazy things you’re thinking, you keep it to yourself because you don’t want to be a bother.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
You’re jealous of his ex because you want to be just as good as her, if not better, and you’re not completely sure that you are. He occasionally brings up their relationship, and it makes you wonder if he does that because she has something you don’t and he misses it. You compare yourself to her because you’re afraid you’re not as good of a girlfriend as she was.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
You’re jealous of his ex because you’re worried a part of him still loves her. You keep track of whether he follows her on instagram and if she likes any of his photos, and you hate it if she does. You don’t want her to be a part of his life AT ALL. She’s his ex for a reason and you don’t want her weaseling her way back in.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You’re jealous of his ex because she seemed way more attached to him than you are, and you wonder if he actually liked that. You enjoy your freedom, and you’re far too independent for a relationship to become your entire life. You wonder if his ex was way more attentive to his needs than you are, and it makes you wish you could cling a little closer, but deep down you don’t really want to.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
You’re jealous of his ex because she’s more chill than you. You like to live your life sensibly, and you’re hard on yourself when you let your impulses get the best of you. You know you’re far from being the chill girl, and you wonder if that bothers him.
(January 21st to February 18th)
You’re jealous of his ex because she seemed more adventurous than you. You’re smart and capable of having deep and meaningful conversations, but you’re slow to trust, and you don’t enjoy taking risks that could potentially hurt you. His ex was more reckless in love than you are. You walk carefully through love step by step, and she ran through the relationship like a sprint.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You’re jealous of his ex because she makes you wonder if the two of you are right for each other. You like to believe that the two of you were meant to meet, but you wonder whether or not you’ll last. You ask yourself if you’ll just end up like the last one, like her and the ones before her, and you hope the answer is no.
