Heartbreak really, REALLY sucks, but it’s something we’ve almost all gone through at some point in our lives. Maybe we’ve gone through it on either side — the heartbreaker or the heartbroken — but either way it sucks.

You thought you found the one you were going to spend your life with. You could picture the wedding in your head... and suddenly it's all over as fast as it came, and you're not sure how to deal with it. 

When we were younger we watched rom-coms like Legally Blonde that showed us what to expect when it was our turn. We would have our heart broken and our friends would rally around us to make us feel better — binge-watching tv with us, bringing us chocolates and sweets to stuff our mouths with, and slowly but surely getting us back on our feet.

We would then have our break through moments — when we FINALLY got out of bed with a plan.

We were coming back better than ever, we were either going to make them ours again through seduction, or make them regret every breaking our hearts to begin with and watch them come crawling back.

At then end, we'd be happy and better off — just like they are in the movies.

But the thing with movies is that’s not how it always works. And when you’re watching a movie, you’re not the one living through the pain.

Have romantic comedies given us unrealistic expectations about heartbreak?  When it's finally our unfortunate turn to have our heart broken, it's not nearly as easy to bounce back as fast or as strong as Elle Woods did.

Instead there seems to be a lot more crying, a lot more yelling, and we sit there, lost in our own sadness for a really, really long time.

What's the best way to deal with a broken heart?

Well if you look to astrology and to your horoscope, it's easy to see which of us handle heartbreak worse than the rest. These 6 heartbroken zodiac signs have no idea how to handle a breakup at all.

Reactions can range from one sign who spends days crying to another who tends to take out their frustration on anyone they see. These heartbroken zodiac signs are emotional wrecks, and there's no one to blame for that other than the person who did the breaking in the first place, and the star sign these people were born under

Aries (March 21- April 19)

Aries heartbroken zodiac signs

Some people yell and some people cry to release their pent up emotions after heartbreak, but Aries — well, she might actually go as far as punching a wall to express her anger and hurt at the person who broke her heart.

It might be best to give Aries her space while she’s going through something like this. Either that or a really nice, soft punching bag so she doesn't hurt herself.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus heartbroken zodiac signs

Taurus believes her world will never be the same, she thinks she will never love again. She does not handle heartbreak well, and she's one to really sit in her sadness for an extended amount of time.

She cancels on plans she previously made, and doesn't feel like doing any of the things she normally enjoys. She's been in the same pair of sweatpants for the past five days and isn't planning on leaving her bed anytime soon.

This kind of heartbreak calls for a good, reall patient, friend STAT.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo heartbroken zodiac signs

Leo is your classic crier when it comes to heartbreak. The thing is, everyone thinks she is fine — she gets dressed in the morning and goes through her day holding all her emotions back.

It’s exhausting and when she’s finally alone and the door to her bedroom is closed, it all gets to be too much for her. Chances are, she’ll get under the covers and cry herself to sleep.

If you're friends with a Leo, try to get her to talk through things a bit over some ice cream. That way she doesn't feel so alone at the end of the day.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio heartbroken zodiac signs

Heartbreak is more change than Scorpio can handle, so everything else in her life must be PERFECT.

She tries to control a lot of things that she can’t, including other people, after a breakup, but no matter how much control she makes herself think she has, it’s not enough to actually fix what is wrong, her broken heart.

Be patient with Scorpio as she learns to adapt without her boo. She may be controlling, but she still needs a good friend by her side to ride this out with her.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn heartbroken zodiac signs

When someone breaks Capricorn’s heart, she has trouble controlling any of her emotions — and definitely cant control who she is taking her feelings out on.

She has a bit of a shorter temper and wont hold back on her snarkiness for anyone.

If this is your friend, maybe keep your distance — or at least don't be offended when she says these things she probably doesn't mean. She's heartbroken, and like it or not, she'll be there for you when you go through the same thing.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces heartbroken zodiac signs

Pisces cant handle a broken heart because she doesn't know how to let go. She's one to continuously look at old pictures of her boo and pile over the text messages from happier times.

She's wondering if there is any chance to get that back.

The best thing you can do for Pisces is to be a really good friend with her and keep her in line — NO, she doesn't need that jerk back. NO she didn't do everything wrong. 

She needs a strong friend right now.
