Not everyone dates a new person immediately after a significant breakup.

It's not easy to put your guards down after your love broke your heart, but there are people who think it's a necessary part of the healing process.

There's a theory that a rebound relationship helps you to move on.

The problem is that the rebound after a breakup is always a challenging task.

Some women don’t like the idea of rebounds, while others see it as a necessary part of the healing process.

A rebound guy doesn’t necessarily have to fall into your usual type. In reality, they can be most enjoyable when they aren’t.

No matter where you fall on the rebound debate, if you decide to go for it, you need some guidance.

Here’s a list of who you should date when on the rebound, by zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries women are dynamic, quick to the punch, and powerful. You like being in control of situations, but you don’t crave being the center of attention like Leo’s can tend to be.

You like to let your skills do the talking. In relationships, you crave a whirlwind followed by the long haul. You need dynamics in your relationships to keep you on your toes.

When on the rebound, go for something simple and easy. You don’t need to be challenged.

Find someone who recognizes your energy right away and wants to please you without having to start up any internal competition between the two of you.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus women are physical people. You do the best working with your hands, and traditional romance is your go-to.

If your previous relationship died out because it lost is a sexual spark, find someone who’s traditional on the outside, but isn’t afraid to experiment in the bedroom.

Find someone who makes you feel like a queen instead of a princess. Someone who will open doors for you and bring you flowers, but also someone who will bring in some handcuffs or whipped cream for after the date.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You’re always ready for fun, social situations, and intellectual debate. Relationships for you need to be sexually powered and intellectually stimulating.

When on the rebound from this kind of relationship, focus on someone who will counter your weaknesses.

It’s in a Gemini's nature to be indecisive, so find someone who is not afraid to put his foot down and made a decision.

Someone who is down for any of your crazy ideas is also an excellent choice.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You are deeply emotional and intuitive. You become very attached to the people you surround yourself with, especially your partner.

Breakups can be especially hard on you because of this. If rebounding is something you want to do, go for your complete opposite.

Find someone who meets your surface-level requirements but is also someone you can’t see yourself getting emotionally attached to.

That way, your rebound can be successful and you won’t get your heart broken again.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are wild, fearless, and thrive in the spotlight. You need someone who can match as well as balance your energy, whether you’re looking for a relationship or a rebound.

You won’t enjoy being with someone that is a complete opposite like other signs would.

You would, however, find it to be a nice change of pace to have a partner that challenges you a bit more when it comes to being in the spotlight.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo women are practical and meticulous in their relationships. You’re a planner, and you like being comfortable in relationships after a proper vetting period.

You’re also probably the least likely to go for a rebound since you are very particular about who you give your affection to.

If you decide to take a risk with a rebound, you are going to be way too meticulous about it, but it’s just in your nature.

If I can give you any advice, look at your list of requirements and strike one or two from your list. They do not have to be your future husband.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You exist to be in relationships. They don’t have to be romantic relationships, but you have an internal fear of being alone.

Rebound relationships are part of your normal dating cycle, but be sure not to go with just anyone.

Keep your own needs and wants in mind, and don’t just jump into a relationship to avoid that fear.

Find someone who embraces your uniqueness and is level-headed.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

My Scorpio friends, your relationships reach incredible highs and disastrous lows.

After a messy breakup, rebounds are needed to help you feel that happiness again.

You like feeling taken care of in relationships, so while on the rebound, look for someone that will let you be in more of a power position.

I’m not saying ownership or anything like that, just a relationship that allows you to be making decisions and make your partner feel safe instead.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You’re very optimistic and humorous. You’re curious about the world around you, and having someone by your side that shares that same sense of adventure is important to you whether you’re in a relationship or on a rebound.

Find the adventurous spirit for your rebound, the one that would be open to spontaneous trips to the beach at four in the morning or a quick day trip to a theme park.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You’re very family-oriented. More likely than not, your previous relationship was one that was introduced to your family, and you to theirs. A break up can feel like losing a family member.

When on the rebound, the last thing you want to do is pick someone that you could see as family. Find the person you wouldn’t want to take home to your mom and just let loose and have fun!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The intellectual Aquarius woman likes to be alone without being lonely. Relationships could be something that feels a bit too suffocating for you compared to being single.

When on the rebound, if you want to call your single life that, will mainly consist of finding people you trust and vibe with, but also allow you to be yourself and not feel tied down.

I don’t mean that you don’t like relationships, but you like the freedom of knowing you don’t have to see or talk to them every single day of your relationship.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You are so sensitive and empathetic. It’s both your greatest asset as well as your fatal flaw. While on the rebound, you may be attracted to the broken soul, and you could feel obliged to try and fix them.

Do not do this!! Find someone stable, smart, but still empathetic. Someone who will be there for you to help you heal from the last of your heartbreak. Remember that rebounds are for you, so be sure to put yourself first.
