Having an ex is difficult, especially these days considering the whole social media factor. You don’t want to unfriend him, but you also don’t want to see him check into bars and concerts. Ugh, and let’s not forget the mutual friends, the risk of bumping into him, and the thought of him moving on. The only thing that makes having an ex even more difficult is actually wanting to get him back.
Ah, yes, the conundrum of getting back together with an ex. How exactly do you do it? According to films and television shows, there’s about a million different ways to win your ex back. In The Notebook, Ryan Gosling’s character bought her a friggin’ house. BOUGHT HER A HOUSE! Seriously, how perfect is Ryan Gosling in every single movie? Before we proceed, let’s all take a moment to praise the heavens for the existence of Ryan Gosling… Back to the topic, you don’t necessarily have to buy your ex his dream house or anything. That would be cool, but expensive and dramatic. There’s no need for all of that when trying to win back an ex. Instead, a romantic gesture, intimate conversation, and pleading for forgiveness can work. But, what works on who? Lucky for you, we have you covered. We’ve broken down all the different ways to win back an ex according to their zodiac sign… because if you’re trying to win back an Aries, you’ll have to behave much differently than you would to win back an Pisces.
The list below details how to win back your ex based on their zodiac sign, so there’s no need to go full-on The Notebook when you want to get someone back.
Aries- Make them feel important
The Aries is a strong fire sign, so it’s VERY hard to make them change their mind. Whether it was you who ended it or they did, if an Aries has decided not to get back together with you, then it’ll be challenging to convince him otherwise. However, it’s not impossible and there are a few things to do. For starters, make your Aries ex feel important. Because Aries signs are born leaders, they enjoy feeling important. We all enjoy feeling important, but an Aries really, really, really relishes in feeling important. You should make a declaration of your love to show them that they are the most important person in your world. This will win you some big brownie points with your Aries ex. In trying to get an Aries back, you should also just be honest and straightforward. Aries appreciate bravery, and what’s braver than being honest and vulnerable in this situation?
What you do have on your side in terms of an Aries is that they are impulsive. So, if you hit the right emotional chord, they may impulsively get back together with you before talking themselves out of it. That’s a plus, right?
Taurus- Show that you will never hurt them
Girl, getting a Taurus back is like having a full time job! I’m not even kidding. The Taurus is an extremely devoted and stable sign. When they love, they love hard. In fact, if you’re ever been broken up with a Taurus, it’s likely because you dumped them. The Taurus sign rarely dumps people. They are in it to win it when it comes to relationships. All this being said, if you’ve broken the trust of a Taurus, it’ll be hard to get it back.
Because Taurus love so hard, they also get hurt so hard. They will become very distrusting and possessive and jealous. First, you must be sure you can weather this emotional storm of them being possessive and distrusting when you do get back together. It’s going to be rough. If you can weather it, just have patience. A Taurus just wants to see that you aren’t going to hurt them again. So day by day, show them that you’re in their life for good. The Taurus loves love, so this patient, slow tactic will eventually break them down. But, like we said, be ready for the emotional storm that is the Taurus.
Gemini- Show them your adventurous side
Instead of shying away from a Gemini’s inconsistencies, you should play into them. A Gemini doesn’t want to feel tied down. They don’t want life to be a repetition. S0, show your Gemini what an adventure getting back together will be. Don’t make getting back together a negative ‘forgive me’ type thing. Instead, make it a positive ‘let’s do this again’ thing and they will be intrigued. A Gemini is always down for an adventure, especially if that adventure is a relationship.
Cancer- Express your full feelings
Cancers are very in tune with their emotions and they never hide their feelings. They can’t help it – all the good emotions and all the bad emotions are right on the surface. Because of this, a Cancer ex can be negative, moody and pessimistic. In fact, a Cancer ex can be straight up mean. If they are mad at your or hate you, you will know that – you’ll even feel it. Heck, they may even just tell you that they hate you.
Because a Cancer is so very in tune with this feelings, though, this can work in your favor. Cancers are connected to their emotions and the emotions of others. They’re quite sympathetic. To get back on his good side, you just need to express your feelings to your Cancer ex. If you are having strong feelings, he will feel them, too, and hopefully he will understand. Express yourself emotionally to your Cancer ex and they won’t be able to help but forgive you.
Just remember how emotional a Cancer can be, because the whole ‘getting back together’ part of the relationship may be rocky and difficult. Your Cancer ex is going to tell you all about their feelings… trust us.
Leo- Buy them something special
Attention, attention, attention. Leos loves attention, more so than almost any other sign. Center stage is the place where Leos feel very comfortable. They love all eyes on them. (Oh, Leos, you hams.) Because of this, a Leo will love a partner that treats them like a king or queen. Of course, they don’t want a push over of a partner, but rather just someone who makes them feel really important. To get your Leo back, you need to make him feel very important. Tell them that they are THE MOST important person ever to you. A Leo also loves expensive things, y’know because they are a bit showy. That said, an expensive present would definitely help persuade a Leo to give you another shot.
Luckily, once you’re back with a Leo, it can feel like you never broke up. A Leo is warm-hearted and cheerful. They have an upbeat personality that you’ll see once you’re back together.
Virgo- Show that you aren’t a risk
Virgos are so very practical. They have a very black and white sense of life. They are usually on the college, marriage, house, and baby life track, which is fine but you need to be aware of that in order to get back together with them. They aren’t the type to be too forgiving or to move backwards. Instead, you need to show that there is a future there. Showing them the possibility of a future together is how to win your Virgo back.
A Virgo, by nature, is also very analytic. They will think about the basic facts of the relationship and not let their emotions rule them. Instead of appealing to their emotional side, you should get the facts in your corner. You should show that you aren’t a risk, but rather a smart, logical decision. We’re not saying you should make a Power Point presentation, but you should be thinking with your head instead of your heart when trying to win back a Virgo. However, a Power Point presentation may help.
Libra- Have a civilized conversation
If you want to get back together with a Libra, you’re lucky because a Libra is one of the easiest signs to get back together with. A Libra is fair-minded and social. Their goal is always to achieve harmony among others, so they will be open to achieving harmony in your relationship once again. A Libra is so cooperative that they will be willing to sit down and hear your side of the story. Even better is that once you tell a Libra your side, they will be fair and thoughtful. They will consider your account and your feelings, and they may even agree with you.
Like we said, a Libra is so, so easy to get back together with because they are diplomatic. The only difficulty you may find is that they will try to avoid you. A Libra will do their best to stay away from a confrontation, so you have to assure your Libra ex that you don’t want to confront them but you rather want to have a civilized conversation.
Honestly though, if you want to get back together with a Libra, you don’t need much help.
Scorpio- Get emotional with them
A Scorpio is one of the most passionate signs. The Scorpio enjoys affection and love and great passion. Hey, if you kiss them enough, they may even forget you were ever broken up. That is exactly how you get back together with a Scorpio – you embrace their passion. Scorpios live their life for passion, so you must remind your Scorpio ex that yours was a great, great passion. Scorpio will even be willing to risk getting hurt again if it’s for a great, grand love. A Scorpio will risk it all for a love so significant. You don’t necessarily have to play on a Scorpio’s logical side, but rather the purely emotional.
You should watch for secrets, though. Scorpios are very secretive, so they may be keeping their emotions shielded from you once you’re back together. It’s not healthy to swallow down negative emotions and you want to make sure this isn’t the case with your Scorpio.
Sagittarius- Make them laugh
Sagittarius can be hard to get back together with because when they move on, they don’t look back. They aren’t the type to really contemplate their past relationships. When it’s done, they want to keep moving forward. That’s how the Sagittarius is because of their dislike of constraints. They don’t like to be tethered to things, including the past. In order to get a Sagittarius back, you need to forget about the past and paint the perfect picture of the relationship. Sagittarius are idealistic by nature, so tapping into their rose colored glasses is the way to go. Of course, no relationship is idealistic or perfect, but that’s okay. Sagittarius are always imagining the best and settling for reality.
You should also tap into their sense of humor. A Sagittarius is humorous and always looking for the humor in others. Make him laugh and you’ll be back in his arms in no time.
Capricorn- Be ready for some serious attitude
Capricorns are known for their self-control. They are the type of sign that actually sticks to a juice cleanse, gets up at 6am for hot yoga, and never ever gets too drunk in public. (I wish, right?) This type of self-control is also reflects in how they have relationships. If they have decided to not get back together with you, a Capricorn will have so much self-control that it would be difficult to win them back over. Difficult, but not impossible.
Because they are all about family and tradition, you should play into that. If you’re getting back together with a Capricorn, it should be because you want to end up with them, and that thinking will appeal to a Capricorn. Painting a future together – with marriage, a house, and kids – is the way to go with the self-controlled Capricorn.
Just know that the Capricorn can be condescending and snarky. Be ready for some serious attitude once you’re back together.
Aquarius- Have an intelligent conversation
The Aquarius sign is very progressive and has a very open mind. For this reason, they will be able to listen to your thoughts and process them. They won’t get defensive or blame you, but rather be interested in hearing your side of the relationship. An Aquarius can accept what you have to say about your side of the failed relationship. Even more good news, an Aquarius also doesn’t care what other people think, so that won’t be an obstacle when getting back together. They won’t care about others judging you two for giving it another shot. Screw the haters.
When trying to get back together with an Aquarius, you want to make it more intellectual than emotional. An Aquarius hates emotional talk. They last thing they want is to listen to you cry for an hour. Instead, make the conversation more intellectual and philosophical. They love intelligent conversations, so this will really appeal to them.
Pisces- Make sure to sort out all your issues first
A Pisces is always very compassionate and gentle. They have an old, wise soul. Instead of being immature during the breakup, a Pisces is likely to be mature and take responsibility for their part in the failure of the relationship. But, because this sign is emotional, they are likely to indulge in their sadness. They can be mopey and overly upset about the breakup, which can make getting back together with him harder. You should comfort them and allow them to feel as sad as they want. The most important thing to remember when trying to get back together with a Pisces is to promise them that the past mistakes of the relationship won’t come up again. A Pisces hates when the past comes back to haunt them. So make sure to sort out all your issues first before you get back together with a Pisces.
