We all handle break ups differently, some of us seem to bounce back easily and get on with life, while others get stuck in an emotional post-break up rut.
How you handle a relationship ending could depend on your star sign! While we often hear about how different zodiacs are attracted to different people and how each star sign behaves differently in relationships, we don’t often hear about how the signs of the zodiac handle a break up.
Here is a guide to how each star sign is best to handle break up and finally move on. It might just help you if you’re struggling to get over your ex…
Aries tend to love the excitement and adrenaline rush of a new relationship. They love the thrill and the chase and love to be kept on their toes. Once the honeymoon period is over, Aries can become a little bored.
You need the relationship to remain exciting and new, and for this reason, if a relationship becomes stale, Aries will be the first to leave.
If it was your decision to break up, then as an Aries you will be very good at sticking to your guns. During a break up, you can expect the Aries to cut any contact with their ex off completely and be icy cold to their former flame.
Been dumped? Aries will bounce back to the single life fairly easily, with a new zest for life and love for experiencing new things. So, if you’re an Aries going through a recent break up, embrace this side of your personality and take on a new challenge!
