We all wonder about our exes, even if only for a short period of time and how they feel about the break up no matter who initiated it. Are they sad? Mad? Angry? In pain? Happy? Sometimes we wonder if we've had any kind of effect on them, at least that's what it sounds like to me.
A lot of it depends on their personality as well. Do they hide their emotions? Do they cover up what they feel or do they let people see their true selves? That is where astrology and signs can come into play.
For example, you have an Aries man who doesn't like to lose at anything, ever. And to be honest, it doesn't matter who broke up with whom because an Aries will see it as a loss or a failure no matter what. On the other hand, a Libra man will take a while to get over the break-up and not because of the emotional involvement he may have had or invested in the relationship. But because it reveals the negative traits he possesses behind the mask he wears all the time.
If you're wondering about your ex and what he or she is doing, how he or she was in the relationship and how he or she is handling the separation (or not handling it), read on!
Aquarius ex-boyfriend (20 January to 18 February)
Tired of hearing how awesome it was? Luckily for you, that's over now. He was highly motivated and driven, but at your expense. As an ex now, his pride is damaged and his ego has been shattered. Depending on the circumstances, he will react to how much his pride has been shattered.
He will be very careful with you. That doesn't mean he won't do everything in his power to bring you down behind your back. He may spread rumours about you. Just when you think he's gone for good, he'll show up. Never think he won't come back.
You will miss the adventures you used to have. His spontaneity was one of the most attractive things about him. You fed off his strength and confidence as it was contagious. You won't miss his self-centredness or that he was only there for you when it benefited him or suited him at the time.
