We’ve all had an ex who just couldn’t stand the idea of not being together anymore, so they made our lives unbearable. They knew exactly how to push our buttons and they went for it. It turns out we can pretty much predict how bad an ex will be based on the characteristics of their zodiac signs. Here are some of the worst ones. See where your ex falls or whether you match the description yourself!

Capricorn: Commitment Issues
Although this zodiac sign demands the utmost loyalty and devotion and wants to know where you’re at five minutes after you walked out the door, they can’t give you the same. They project their own insecurities unto you and take more than they can give. They treat you like you’re their life partner but can’t actually say the words.
It can be really confusing to always wonder why you’re not enough for them. The thing is the problem is in their ability to trust and let go and usually they can’t see what they’re missing out on until it’s gone. They keep trying to check if the grass is greener on the other side only to keep walking alone until they’re out of energy.
Virgo: Their Way Or The Highway
Virgo has a very systematic way of thinking and doing that can be their downfall. They expect you to adapt to their lifestyle down to the nitty-gritty stuff like how to put away the dishes. Rather than appreciate the things you do for them, they get upset with you for not doing it exactly the way they expected you to.
They end up micromanaging you every step of the way to make sure everything is to their liking, never pausing to consider if it fits into your needs and preferences as well. The irony is that while they’re too busy critiquing everything you’re doing and the way you’re doing it, they never stop to consider what they’re doing wrong themselves.
Leo: All About Them
It’s Leo’s world and we’re all just living in it. Leo likes to live by their own rules and this can be quite attractive at first. It feels like it’s you against the world. But quickly you realize that they actually think that the world revolves around them. The worst part is that they get upset when things don’t work out exactly how they want them to, and have no flexibility to adapt to circumstances.
This can also become annoying when you’re making decisions together, because you’re never actually doing it together, they’re the ones choosing and hoping you’ll agree with them. And if you don’t, they’ll spend the rest of the day trying to convince you until you cave just so they can stop bringing it up.
Cancer: A Rollercoaster Of Emotions
They’re hot then they’re cold, it’s hard to keep up. A Cancer can start the day feeling on top of the world and at the first inconvenience go through a downward spiral. Sometimes it feels like you have to walk on eggshells because you’re so afraid of their sensitive nature and don’t want to have to deal with their mood change if you’re the one that causes it.
Sometimes when you were coming home, you never knew what kind of mood they’d be in and just hoped for the best. However, when it comes to fights and breakups, it never even got to a productive point and communication was hard through their tears and pleas. It takes them a long time to get through the emotion and calm down to actually be able to have a grown-up conversation.
Taurus: Always Has To Be Right
Despite being of the most sensual and loving zodiac signs, their passion is extended to all parts of their being. This makes them incredibly stubborn, which is probably due to being ruled by Venus. However, when it comes to communication it can feel like you’re talking to a wall. You can spend all day and night trying to explain your needs and wanting to reach a resolution only to feel like you wasted your breath. They only listen to what they want to hear.
It can feel like you’re talking to a child and quickly become frustrating. For them, the goal is to be right and to spin the conversation around somehow to come out being right.
Aries: Hot Tempered
Aries’ fiery nature has its pros and cons. On one hand, it makes them great lovers and adventurous partners which leads to an exciting relationship. When things are good, it can feel like you’re on cloud 9. However, they take that same fiery nature with them into the bad times, which can make for really explosive fights. They’re like a ticking bomb and when they’re mad, they can get really angry.
They also prefer to be alone when they’re upset which can be hard to deal with when you just want to resolve the situation and move on. But that doesn’t matter to Aries, who sees that every man is for himself, even in times of trouble.
Gemini: No Stability
A relationship with a Gemini can feel quite chaotic. One day they feel like settling down, the next day they want to move across the world. While their spontaneity is part of their appeal, it can also create an unstable relationship. It’d be nice if you could wake up in the morning knowing where your relationship was going and feeling secure in it without all the back and forth.
They also don’t like to be called out on it so you can expect them to just tell you what you want to hear when they feel uncomfortable, even if they have no intention of following through.
Scorpio: From Friend To Enemy
Dating a Scorpio can feel like being with your best until the day they turn on you. When they lose someone they love, they can’t deal with the pain and they enter vengeance mode. They want to hurt you because they feel hurt. They’ll go out of their way to do the things they know will get your attention, whether that means gossiping about you or withholding certain things.
You quickly become their number one enemy. This can feel quite disheartening and can feel overwhelming when considering that there was a time you both deeply loved and cared for one another.
If They Didn’t Make The List
If your ex didn’t make the list, then the breakup was probably inconvenient and annoying but managed not to turn into a war. They likely either wanted to be friends or deleted you off of everything but either way you were able to somewhat peacefully move on from the relationship without dodging any attempts of them purposely trying to ruin your life. Sometimes breakups and exes aren’t caused by any mistakes, or because anyone was a bad person, or even a lack of love. Sometimes it’s just circumstantial or not a right fit.
In any relationship, always look at how you feel and ask yourself: does this person make you love yourself more? Do you want to grow old with them?
Love is more than just kisses and butterflies, it’s much more than that. If you want to know more on what your birth chart reveals about how you love and what you need out of a partner, check out this personalized report based on date of birth.
