Are rebound relationships a bad idea? There are those who believe that getting into another relationship is the worst thing you can possibly do after a breakup, and that it's wrong to depend on another person to help you heal.

But for some people, having a rebound relationship is their way of coping. And for the zodiac signs who make the best rebounds after a breakup, you can be sure to get what you're looking for. Even a bad horoscope can't predict just how useful these signs are in your time of need.

There are times when you need to feel love and you don’t really care where that love comes from. Or, maybe you just want some fun with a fling. You want someone who is cool enough to just enjoy their company without trying to mold them into something permanent.

When it comes to rebound relationships, you need to be honest with the other person and yourself. If you’re using them to feel better, you need to let them know upfront. If they’re okay with it, continue; if not, you need to find someone else to help you heal.

Lots of times, we think that just being with someone will help us feel not so lonely, but often, it just makes it worse. Luckily, you can save yourself more heartache by looking at the six zodiac signs who make the best rebounds.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis make great rebounds because they will help you feel so much better about yourself. They won't take it personally when you feel strong enough to move on and pursue a more permanent relationship with someone.

However, you might be surprised at how much fun having a rebound relationship with a Gemini is and you might not want to let it go. Being with a Gemini will give you the ego boost that you crave. They will make you feel interesting and you'll be surprised at the how quickly you'll get your confidence back.

Sagittarians can help you figure out what it is you don't want in a relationship, and what you do. They are all about change and experiencing new things — and that's exactly what you need right now.
