Thinking about an ex is not unusual.
It’s normal to wonder what someone you’ve lived with is doing now or to think fondly of the old days.
But even if it’s common, it’s best not to fall into nostalgia too often. For example, wishing for an old love to return is probably not the healthiest thing to do in the long run. It prevents moving forward and enjoying life.
Some people even experience anxiety or fall into depression after a relationship ends . It’s a bit of a mess.
Fortunately, most of the time, we can find happiness with certain tools; like time, support from friends or family, and wise advice.
The expression of lack in humans, after a rupture
If you’re worried about your ex and wondering if he’s thinking of you too, try not to focus too much on this as you risk falling into a downward spiral.
If he doesn’t really think about you, that would mean you weren’t really a part of his life. It’s the inherent fear behind the question, “Is my ex still thinking of me?”
It’s natural to be afraid that someone who once loved you will later forget you. It also makes sense that you feel hurt or even depressed when you think about it.
Any woman who’s ever dated a man knows how difficult it can be to get him to admit how he feels, especially when he’s too embarrassed to admit his most vulnerable feelings.
Men are conditioned to think that they cannot express any kind of emotion related to pain because if they did, they would be stripped of their masculinity.
Add to that, if your ex was born under one of the most stubborn or sensitive zodiac signs, it can be even harder for them to recognize any feelings that they think might make them seem weak.
And one of the hardest things for men to admit is when they miss you.
While it is sometimes beneficial for women to be the most emotional, at times like these it is just frustrating to sit down and ask yourself, “Does she miss me?”
So how do you know if your ex is still thinking about you?
A friend told me her story.
After breaking up with her ex, it was clear that they missed each other. They were in a long distance relationship, living across the country with each other and the distance became too much for them to handle.
Although the breakup was the smartest decision to take, they still had strong feelings for each other.
A few weeks after breaking up, her ex realized her feelings were too strong to hold. However, being the stubborn Aquarius that he was, he was just never going to be able to express how much he missed her.
Although he couldn’t tell her how he was feeling, she noticed it through his actions… and by learning more about how his zodiac sign affects his behavior.
She found that he often talked to his friends about her, constantly referring to their previous relationship. He wanted to get updates from them, concerning her and her life.
In short, all the distinctive signs of an Aquarius man who regrets his ex.
Some men, born under more expressive sun signs, are simpler and will admit their feelings more freely. Others will express their emotions through their actions. And others will need you to take the first step, before admitting to feeling anything.
To find out which category the man you are thinking of belongs to, read on and see what astrology reveals about his most deeply hidden emotions.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
A fiercely loyal partner, when he breaks up with someone, it feels like he’s losing a part of himself. He could do his best and leave his ex in the past but that seems inhuman to him and easier said than done for him.
Aries being extremely competitive by nature, any sort of threat against them will make them feel in danger in winning your heart back.
When he still has feelings for you, he will therefore tend to be jealous whenever he hears things about your new relationship (s) or even when he sees you in public.
He might try to pretend nothing but feels like he still has a say in your life.
So, it is his constant jealousy towards you that shows that he misses you. It’s mean, but it’s an obvious way to say that he still feels something for you.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Apparently he moved on. He’s not thinking of you, he’s still not talking to you, and he’s got back with someone.
But Taurus is a sign of attachment and order, and their feelings of attachment can easily turn possessive when combined with rejection.
So seeing you move on and potentially dating other people really touches him, even if he will try to fake it.
Flea in the ear ? You are still friends on social networks and you have learned that you are always in his phone contacts …
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini are very difficult to read because their feelings are so changeable… One day he sincerely says he misses you, and the next day he ignores all of your texts.
The truth is, he doesn’t lie about those feelings, he just can’t decide which one is stronger.
In order to know exactly what a Gemini native is thinking, you need to give them the time they need to realize that yes, they miss you. Because when he comes to that conclusion, he will tell you immediately.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is a very emotional zodiac sign so if he misses you, it will be difficult for him not to show it.
He doesn’t like breaking up with something that was really important to him because it’s so hard for him to let people grow up without him.
Of course, he also knows that to overcome a breakup , it would be more beneficial to move on, for life to go on, but hey …
If he always responds to your messages immediately, offers help with simple tasks, and takes every opportunity to see you, chances are he will miss you.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
There should be no doubt in your mind that if a man of this sign wants you to come back or is thinking of you, it might not be very subtle. Although it might surprise you …
But in general, when a Leo man is still thinking of you, he will try to wow you and stay in your life as much as possible.
He will want you to know how he is feeling, will also often ask you how you feel because they are like this, Leo’s, they want your full attention.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Even if a Virgo native is very comfortable with you, his deep nature makes him very shy who has trouble expressing his emotions.
He is very critical of himself so when he is wondering if he should tell you how much he misses you, he will hesitate to do so.
With this kind of man, you have to take the initiative and admit that you miss him first. He may not have the confidence to say it right away, but it will come.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is a social person and can’t stand being alone .
They are loving, caring, and the nicest people you will meet. This nature is also reflected in their relationship.
They care and love their beloved to the extent that it is difficult for them to move on. They often feel a great void in their lives when they separate, to the point of sometimes falling into depression.
But the great thing to remember about this sign is that it values honesty, truth, and fairness. This means that if he misses you, he will just tell you.
He’s not the type to beat around the bush, so it’s important for him to put his feelings on the table. If he misses you too, you need to be honest and tell him. He’ll appreciate it more than you think.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
One of the most salient traits of Scorpio is their passion. In fact, the best way for him to express what he feels is through passionate gestures.
Like Leo, Scorpio men do indeed experience a deep passion in their relationships, reserving intimate connections only to those they deem worthy.
But since he’s a very secretive person, he’s unlikely to express his ever-present feelings for you and his desire to get back with you.
How to know then? Well, his persistent presence in your life is proof enough that he is failing to move forward. You will know it therefore by his inability to hide the passion he has for you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
When it comes to relationships, Sagittarius often feels threatened by clingy partners who force them into a serious relationship.
But if the feelings were mixed, it is important to give him the space he needs to understand how he is feeling, otherwise he will run away.
When a Sagittarius fails to move forward after a relationship, their own feelings clash with this hatred for clingy people.
He will therefore do his best not to appear too clingy or sentimental but will not hesitate to talk to you nicely, if the right context arises.
One of the reasons he has a hard time turning the page on a story that meant something to him is his tendency to idealize relationships, even after they’re over.
So yes, it might take him a while, but when Sagittarius starts to realize that he misses you, he is going to be honest and tell you.
Just be patient.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn takes a serious approach to absolutely everything in their life and they are the king of self-control. This means that it is therefore not difficult to keep what he feels to himself.
Because he’s so stubborn, he’s probably waiting for you to be the first to admit your feelings.
The native of Capricorn needs to feel worthy of the people who matter to them. Therefore, when he begins a relationship, he usually moves mountains.
This need to be valued disturbs him a lot when a breakup occurs and the only way to move forward is to admit to him that you still love him: he does not risk taking the first step, for fear of being rejected.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius men are known to be deep thinkers and intellectuals, so if your ex Aquarius doesn’t move on it might be painful. He’ll likely ruminate on your relationship, unable to get you out or his thoughts breaking.
He hates compromise and outright rejection, so the thought of breaking up upsets him if it wasn’t his idea.
Confidence in Aquarius is also easily affected by broken promises, and breakups are usually a demonstration of this.
He probably won’t be the type to constantly contact you after the relationship ends, but he could be tempted …
The best way to tell if an Aquarius is still thinking of you is to take note of how they are talking about you.
If he mentions you in his future plans, talks about your past and present relationship, or is interested in your life, then there is always a possibility.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces is one of the most emotional and romantic signs. They are deep lovers with a strong need for privacy .
The main reason his feelings can linger after a relationship is because his intuition tells him to go after what he wants and not to let anything dissuade him.
He feels that if he persists, there will be no way to deny the intense intimacy you once shared.
Suddenly, this is the easiest sign to decipher when you wonder if he still loves you: he will be the first to tell you, probably more than once in fact.
