It may be hard to 'lose' a Taurus, but it's just as difficult to keep a Gemini. The sign of the Twins is known for being fickle and flighty, stimulation-seeking and superficial. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and information. The winged messenger is faster than the speed of light, and so is Gemini's mind. Her brain needs to be occupied every waking moment, or else she gets fidgety and starts reading the bottoms of Snapple caps.

The Breakup 

If you weren't witty enough to keep her engaged, Gemini probably dropped you faster than you could open the New York Post to Page Six. Or maybe she balked at your attempts to stop her from chatting with every other patron at Happy Hour. Gemini needs the freedom to converse and satisfy her curiosity, and if you couldn't give her that, there was little reason for her to stick around.

So now you're pining for her, having realized that your life is a bore without someone to keep you on top of the latest celebrity news, as well the the tedious (but adorable) details of her day at work.

Winning a Gemini Back

Surely she will have re-entered the dating world in no time, so you've got competition. And unfortunately, familiarity is not an asset when it comes to this sign. In fact, you have some homework to do. If you paid attention, you know what interests her, so the first thing you do is pretend you're preparing for Jeopardy, and imagine Alex Trebek is quizzing you on all of Gemini's favorite categories of interest. If you can't jazz her with your trivial knowledge, then perhaps you should set your sights on another sign.

If you're a serious, one-on-one person, you'll have to stretch yourself socially. Sitting quietly next to her at a dinner table while she jabbers on with friends will not excite her nearly as much as you being somewhat unavailable to her. You need to passionately talk about your own interests with someone else, so she feels there's more to you than she assumed. Being slightly out of reach will make you more interesting. Plus, there's nothing worse to a Gemini than being held in one place for too long, so lay off the possessiveness!

If you're lucky, she'll have returned to your embrace. The next challenge is to keep her there. As a wise sage once sang, "If you love somebody, set them free."
