Let’s say your partner dumps you and takes up with someone else. Do you stay attached? I have seen people stay attached in circumstances like this for five years and more and I can’t say that I understand it. In one case I know of the person had a mental illness but by large people who do this are perfectly sane, they just get caught somehow.
I have a 7th house Uranus so if you’re gone, I’m gone like the wind. I also have very little in Fixed signs, I am a leaver (Jupitarian) by nature and have enough Neptune to slip out from a noose around my neck. I’d say this explains why I don’t get stuck but what about the people who do? What’s in their chart?
Also, here is the sorry news: As much as I am a sucker for a love story, I have never seen anyone who had stayed true and/or obsessed or attached to an ex who had gone on to form other attachments, wind up with the person. When both people leave, maybe. My husband and I are an example of that. But I have never seen someone, male or female, come back to someone who was waiting for them so if this is as rare as I think it is, the worst possible thing you can do if you want someone back, would be to stay attached to them.
What do you know about this? Have you ever held on long after the partner has let go?
