One of the toughest parts of getting over a breakup is resisting the urge to text your ex. Many people swear by a “clean break” as the best way to process your feelings and move on. But when you miss someone and think about them constantly, the temptation to reach out can be overwhelming. Some zodiac signs don’t text their exes for various reasons — maybe they’re too proud and headstrong, or maybe they just move on quickly without looking back.
Whatever the situation, these people avoid the messy back-and-forth conversations that sometimes ensue after a couple breaks things off. And that’s probably for good reason. Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Grant Brenner previously told Elite Daily that “you should wait until the acute reactions settle down” before contacting an ex. "During that initial post-breakup period, getting in touch is more likely to lead to difficulties, either hooking up and regretting it, getting back together and second-guessing it, saying hurtful things out of anger and disappointment, and so on," Brenner explained. When your emotions are still raw, you’re more likely to make unwise choices — like hooking up with your recent ex, or trying to get back together before you’ve really processed things.
If you can avoid it, it’s best to cut off contact for at least several months until some of your initial gut reactions fade. That’s easier for some people to do than for others. For these four zodiac signs, they can’t be bothered to communicate with their ex after the relationship is over. Thank u, next — they’re moving on.
