(March 21st to April 19th)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because your energy wore them out. You have an excitement for life that seriously exhausted them. You showed them things they’ve never seen before and did things with them they’ve never done, and when they were expecting things to slow down and settle, they didn’t, and they still haven’t. They can’t handle your enthusiasm and your need to constantly be doing things and going places, which is why they don’t want you back.


(April 20th to May 21st)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you can’t own up to your mistakes. You’re stubborn AF and even when you know deep down you’ve done something wrong, you don’t want to admit it. It’s hard for you to bring up the fact that you messed up, let alone apologize for it, and your ex is moving on while you work on that.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because your indecisiveness hasn’t changed. It annoyed them while they were in the relationship, and it still annoys them today. That’s just who you are, when you have to make a decision you want to know you’re making the right one. The problem is, you’ll never really know whether your decision was a good one or bad one until after you’ve made it, and you take forever to make it. Your ex doesn’t want you back because they want someone who’s confident in their decisions, especially ones the course of your life depend on.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because your emotions confuse them. You’re not necessarily an emotional roller coaster, but you do have a whirlwind of feelings, and they’re just as overwhelming to everyone else as they are to you. You feel deeply because you care deeply, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but your ex really can’t handle it.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you’re trying really hard to make it seem like your life is GREAT without them. You’re all over social media with friends, dates, and co workers, because you want your ex to see that you haven’t put your life on hold just because they’re gone. It’s great that your life has continued as usual, but you’re trying to publicly shove it in your ex’s face that you’re having more fun without them, and it’s making them doubt that you actually are. You shouldn’t have to prove anything to your ex, especially that your happy without them. If you’re happy without them, that’s great. Go enjoy your happy life. They probably won’t really care. They aren’t going to be jealous of your happiness, and if they are, they’re not worth the energy it takes to make them feel that way.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you’ve kind of been a mess since they’ve been gone. You’re reluctant to believe in yourself and that’s a shame because you’re capable of so many wonderful things, but believing you don’t deserve them cancels out that capability. Your ex has seen you doubt yourself before. They got sick of having to remind you how beautiful and talented you are, and they don’t want you back because you still can’t see it.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you expect your relationships to be perfect, and they don’t feel like trying to fit that mold again. You avoid arguments and confrontation like the plague, but even healthy relationships have disagreements. Your ex knows they’re not perfect, and they know a relationship can’t be either.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you’re insanely jealous. You used to get jealous of their friends (esp. the ones you’re convinced they were attracted to), their hobbies, the time they didn’t spend with you, among other things. They couldn’t stand the fact that they had to constantly prove their love to you, and they don’t feel like trying that hard again.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you’re never around. They know how you are, and how you’re never in one place for very long. They don’t want to be with someone who says they’ll be there and then isn’t. You had a tendency to make promises you couldn’t keep, and they’re done with that.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you’ve already moved on, and you’re honestly fine without them. They would want you back if it seemed like you wanted them back, but you really don’t. You’re not the type of person who lets a breakup break you, and this is no different. Your ex sees that you’ve moved on, and because you seem so fine without them, they want to seem like they’re fine without you too.


(January 21st to February 18th)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you’re really bad at expressing how you feel. You never really showed your emotions, and they never knew how you truly felt about things. They weren’t willing to wait long enough for you to open up, and they don’t want you back because they’re definitely not going to wait any longer.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Your ex doesn’t want you back because you used the breakup as inspiration and they honestly feel a bit exploited. You can’t help where inspiration comes from, and you think if you’re going to go through heartbreak you may as well make the best of it. Your ex doesn’t want you back because the breakup has only added more fuel to your fire, it hasn’t extinguished it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
