The Type Of Lingering Ex You Have, According To Your Zodiac Sign

There's nothing weirder than the relationship you have with your ex. At one point in your lives, you shared a deep and overwhelming love for each other. Your ex knows some of your biggest secrets, they were there during some of your most meaningful moments, and they've probably seen you naked. How are you supposed to just forget about all of that now that the relationship is over? Truth be told, you don't, and the type of lingering ex you have, according to your zodiac sign, will explain just how strange your relationship with them continues to be.

There's a reason why it can feel like you're speaking to a ghost whenever your ex shows up. Unless enough time has passed for you guys to maybe become friends again (because we all know how much wishful thinking that idea truly is), there's pretty much no reason to keep up contact. For all intents and purposes, it's time to move on, and keeping them in your life just makes it all so much more difficult. So, why do we do it then? Why do we continue to talk to our exes when we know what a bad idea it is? It's a mystery of the human heart I don't think we'll ever solve.
