Zodiac Signs Most To Least Likely To Be The Rebound Relationship

And we are not talking basketball.

Zodiac Sign Rebound Relationship Fallback Girl

It's unfortunate, but some zodiac signs are more likely to end up being the rebound relationship than the real thing. It could be that they were born a passionate zodiac sign who attracts people that are hurting from their previous relationships, or maybe they are just the type that doesn't like to be alone — like some water signs. But there's a difference between a soul tie and an astrological personality match. If you know the signs to look for, they aren't so difficult to spot. 


Ever been in a relationship and had a small nagging feeling that you might just be a band-aid on someones broken heart? There are normally signs to make you think this. Like when your romantic interest can't help but bring up their ex in every conversation. Or if they don't commit exactly but still don't let you go. That's not their zodiac sign's personality flaw; it's a red flag you shouldn't be ignoring.



Or if you find a love poem, a dozen roses and an engagement ring engraved with their ex's name inside the drawer of their bedside table..... that's a little dramatic but you get my point.

If any of this sounds a bit familiar to you then I have some bad news. You may be a basketball that doesn't make it into the hoop, bounces off the backboard and into someone's hands. Yes, that's right, a rebound relationship. Also known as a fallback girl. A fallback girl is someone who isn't the first choice but is there and not complicated so they are chosen. 

Being the rebound relationship isn't a fun job, and sometimes it can be good for you or work out. Most of the time these type of relationships do not end well for either party. It's a cycle of broken, and hearts. As a rebound, you fill a void but do not really get the love or attention you deserve. It's not something that anyone envisions when they think of their perfect relationship. A perfect relationship involves two astrologically compatible horoscope signs that are free in heart, soul, and mind to commit to each other.


It's not hopeless, that kind of relationships may work out. Stranger things have happened. But it's a lot more likely that when in a relationship like this the ending will be anything but blissful. If you have even a small inkling that you are the rebound you should just straight up ask. Love is hard enough, intuitive along doesn't make it any easier.
