It’s sad to think of a long-term relationship ending — no one ever wants to say goodbye to someone they once loved. But sometimes, the time is just right.

Maybe one of you did something that hurt the other and you know that you are not truly right for each other. Or maybe you have simply realized that although you love each other very much in the moment, your future goals just don’t seem to line up at all, and you know that staying with each other would mean giving up on other important life goals that you hold as individuals.

Aries men and Cancer women often find themselves falling head over heels for each other, but unfortunately, this cute couple is just not meant to last.

This makes them fundamentally incompatible, and they will end up splitting up in 2019.
23 Leo Guy And Scorpio Girl: They’re Just Too Intense Together
Some people might think that a Leo man and a Scorpio woman would be a match made in heaven, but this combo that sounds so fun on paper actually does not work out too well in real life. The truth is that both of these signs have such intense personalities that when you put them together, at first you will notice that the sparks are flying, but this can’t last, and this is not enough to sustain a real relationship.

But the truth is that while this couple might seem like a good combo in theory, it generally doesn’t work out too well in real life.

It’s a well known fact that Gemini men are super social — you won’t catch a Gemini guy staying in for a quiet weekend! He would much rather go out to a party than stay in with Netflix. But this is exactly why it never works out when a Gemini guy tries to date a Virgo girl.

The truth is that Taurus women are much more stoic than Scorpio men, and a Taurus woman will just not be able to understand the emotional side of a Scorpio man.

17 Sagittarius Guy And Leo Girl: She Is Always Testing Him
Here’s the frustrating thing about the combo of a Sagittarius man and a Leo woman: in theory, they should actually work pretty well together.

12 Sagittarius Guy And Pisces Girl: They’re Actually Too Alike

But this just doesn’t fly with a Capricorn woman.
