What Kind of Ex Are You?A break up is never easy and let’s face it, becoming ‘the ex’ is a label no one is eager to take on. After a break up there are many different types of exes: those who remain friends, those who cut all ties and those who just become hysterical. But what about you? Which genre of ex do you fall under? Read on to find out!
Our editorial team suggests you read:
Breaking up is a horrible time for everyone, in particular if you didn’t want to in the first place! When love is lost we all react in different ways; there are those who lock themselves away to cry for 3 weeks, those who do the complete opposite and go out every night to forget their worries and those who spend their time hating their ex and everything that has been lost.

The fierce ex…
An Aries can quickly become an ex to fear! Not easy to walk over, a break up with an Aries can quickly transform into a fight for honor as they do all they can to make life hell for the person who didn’t appreciate them for who they really are. You’d better be careful an Aries doesn’t catch you with you because you’ll never see daylight again… you’ve been warned.
The indifferent ex… (at least that’s how it seems!)
Even if a Taurus has been badly hurt during a break up, you wouldn’t know it. For them, there is no question of getting back together, especially if it was them who ended the relationship. A Taurus knows how to hold a grudge, so if you’ve hurt one, don’t expect them to forget it anytime soon.
The philosophical ex…
At the time a Gemini is likely to be very angry, but after a moment to reflect on the situation they often comfort themselves with the saying that there ‘are plenty more fish in the sea’, life goes on! A Gemini is able to convince themselves that the break up was a good thing and is likely to move on to a better partner quite quickly.
The respectful ex…
A Cancer usually stays very respectful towards their ex as they are someone with whom they shared their life. However, a break up that was not initiated by a Cancer can be particularly hard for them to understand. In their heads, Cancers will still think there's a chance for them to salvage their relationship. The best way to get over someone? Find someone even better to share your life with who will help you forget all about your ex!
The vengeful ex…
The immense pride of a Leo makes them a difficult ex to have, they're not one to forgive easily… definitely don’t go running back to them asking for a second chance! For a Leo, the only person to have lost out from their break up is the other person in the relationship. Once the reality hits them and begins to set in, a Leo will be looking for revenge. What better way is there to get back at your ex than to find a new love…?
The sad ex…
After a break up a Virgo will initially feel a sense of relief, this however soon passes and is usually replaced by deep sadness. The question of ‘but how can I go on without them?’ will be on that goes round and round in their head. Fortunately this phase doesn’t last long before the Virgo picks themselves up, stops sniveling and gets back to their usual self.
The extreme ex...
Incredulous at first, a Libra takes a while to accept a break up. Once they finally do, a Libra will adopt one of the two attitudes: they’ll do everything in their power to get their ex back, or they’ll banish them from their lives completely. Either way it’s one or the other, there will be no in-between…
A possessive ex…
With a possessive, jealous and bitter nature, the Scorpio is a particularly difficult ex to have. A Scorpio is the ex that never forgets. They’ll remember perfectly any bad parts of your relationship but ignore any memories they may have of good times. Aware of their seduction abilities a Scorpio may try and win their ex back, if they fail however be wary of the wrath that will follow.
The best ex to have!
A Sagittarius’ need for freedom means that they never over attach themselves to anyone, this includes the person they consider their soulmate. This allows for a more bearable break up. If all runs smoothly a Sagittarius is able to stay friends with an ex, even going as far as giving the illusion that they don’t mind when they ex finds someone else. We do know however that this is a façade and in fact they are missing you.
A discreet ex…
A Capricorn is an understanding and discreet ex who won’t turn the break up into a public display. A Capricorn prefers to avoid scandal of any sort and is likely to have everything clear between you two before they leave – be it material things or emotional feelings. A Capricorn doesn’t forget easily so is therefore unlikely to get back with an ex but at the same time won’t be rude about you when your back is turned.
A sympathetic ex…
The Aquarius often stays good friends with their ex partners. Often the two parties of the relationship feel better as friends than they did when they were in the relationship! The Aquarius will be more likely to remember the good times over the bad and will always be there for their ex. If the Aquarius asked for the break up they’ll enjoy their newfound freedom.
A clingy ex…
It is very difficult for a Pisces to distance themselves from someone with which they’ve shared their life. You must give them a lot of time to understand and accept the break up. The Pisces will repeatedly go over all the good times and conveniently forget the reasons for the split in the first place. A Pisces will often beg you to stay with them and do anything they can to try and save the relationship.
