Aquarians are the easiest people in the zodiac to break up with. However, if you go about it incorrectly, you could end up with a lovesick Aquarius who won't go away. After all, nothing interests an Aquarius more than something she cannot understand, including her ex.

Nag the Aquarius about minor details, such as being on time or dressing appropriately in matching clothing. Aquarians absolutely loathe paying attention to minor details, and this will make him eager to get away from you.

Tell your Aquarian that you need to spend more time together; when together, be sour, mopey and malcontent. Aquarians value their freedom, and having to give it up to spend time with a sad sack will make yours eager to say good-bye.

Tell the Aquarian that you need to talk about the end of the relationship. Although Aquarians like surprises, they also like to go into anything that smacks of confrontation as prepared as possible.

Prepare a list of reasons you want to break up. This will appeal to the Aquarian sense of logic and show you have thought about the matter and made up your mind. Do not appear to hesitate or change your mind. Aquarians respect absolute decisions, whereas they will take advantage of any wiggle room you create.

Tell the Aquarian you want to remain friends. Aquarians like to sustain friendships with everyone and everything. Within a matter of weeks, you'll likely be just another number in the Aquarian's black book or iPhone.

Tip

  • If you are contemplating breaking up, you might suddenly find that the Aquarian has broken up with you first. They have an uncanny ability to sense what is coming, and will take flight if they feel threatened or uncomfortable. Aquarians do not like scenes or emotional drama. They may take the news and go off to cry in private. Aquarians will be open to any reason for breaking up, provided that you explain it thoroughly. They may ask a lot of questions--not to dissuade you, but rather to understand your logic.
