Breakups and Gemini




The symbol of Gemini, the Twins, reflects this sign's duality and its tendency towards fickle-heartedness in matters of love. Certainly, this is the most flighty of all the Zodiac signs with one of the worst records for relationship breakups. These smooth-talking, quick-witted charmers make popular dates and lovers, but don't score too highly where long-term reliability is concerned.


The number one reason for dumping a Gemini is likely to be their unfaithfulness. This can take many forms, ranging at the worst from actually sleeping with somebody else, to just flirting around with other people when they're supposed to be exclusively with you. In either case, the implication is you're not very important in their life, leaving you with the feeling you've been taken for a fool.

What you need to understand is that the big problem for most Geminis is their low boredom threshold, their restlessness and their need for endless variety. To discourage a Gemini from straying, it's important to constantly find new ways of keeping the excitement going. Ruled by Mercury, the planet of intellect and communication, this sign thrives on mental stimulation and lively conversation. Make a Gemini laugh and drip feed them with juicy titbits of news and gossip in order to hold their interest.

When a Gemini stops calling or tells you it's over, it's usually because your relationship has become too dull and monotonous and/or someone more interesting has come along. Or maybe you've been a bit too demanding and pushing too hard for a commitment. You're asking for trouble if you try to curtail a Gemini's freedom by fencing them in. These social butterflies won't let themselves be pinned down by anyone - not even you!


If you're dumped by a Gemini, don't automatically assume it's goodbye forever. Unpredictable and prone to sudden reversals, the chances are your Gemini lover will soon tire of their latest conquest and start missing your company again. At the very least, they're likely to want to retain your friendship. A fair proportion of a Gemini's vast social circle consists of former lovers with whom they're still on good terms.

To win back a Gemini ex, it's important to stay cool and collected and avoid undignified emotional outbursts. Logical and detached by nature, Geminis relate to others more through their head than their heart, and the hard truth is they don't care all that much about your feelings. So forget the tears, anger and histrionics. A naughty love letter - cleverly worded and at the same time both humorous and seductive - is a far better way to turn them on again.


• Don't take their little indiscretions too seriously - they're probably only joking.
• Never attempt to box them in or clip their wings - their freedom is very important to them.
• Ring the changes - boredom is the biggest deal-breaker for this sign.
