Aquarius: The Water-Bearer - (January 20 – February 18)
Men born under the Aquarius sign are likely to be social and friendly. Before dating one, you will probably become fast friends and that's nothing to be worried about. Having an instant connection with an Aquarius man is easy because he's just so nice. He's a real "people person" and loves to be the life of the party. He has about a hundred best friends, but only one or two who really know him very well. Friendship is very important to this man, so if he opens up to you, consider yourself lucky because even though he talks to everyone, he only allows a few people to get close. Congrats, now you're one of them.
Communication is super important to an Aquarius man, so be sure to provide plenty of interesting conversations to keep his attention. He's an intellectual man so brush up on current events and pop culture because no topic is off-limits with this one. The way to his heart to be able to hold an intelligent conversation. He wants someone that can keep up with him, but also challenge and debate him. Don't be afraid to let your opinions be known. He wants a strong and independent woman because he's a strong and independent man himself. The way to his heart is through talking. This is one sign where quality and quantity of conversation is almost equal in comparison. He wants good conversation, but he also wants a lot of it too. He can fall in love with intellect and witty banter so keep it coming.
An Aquarius man is a very unique creature to say the least. I've dated a few of them and I can honestly say I've never been bored. Their ability to talk and hold a conversation can entertain me for hours. They're just so fascinating! I could be in an empty room with them with nothing to do, and yet I would never be bored if an Aquarius man was with me. If you want someone who's boring and predictable, this is definitely not the sign for you. You may think you know the Aquarius man, but then he turns around and does a complete 180 and you have to stop and question everything you thought you knew about him. You just never know what's he going to do next and that's part of the fun. You also never know what's he going to say next either. One minute you're talking about the global warming, next he's wondering what you watched on TV last night. He will definitely keep you on your toes but you'll love every minute of it because when's the last time you knew a guy like this? Probably never..
Romance is where things get a little tricky with the Aquarius man. He can be sweet and say all the right things one day, then you don't hear from him for a few weeks. Just when you think he's "ghosted" you for good, he's back in the picture like nothing's wrong and you have to ask yourself if you're really going crazy. If any one sign can drive you crazy with their unpredictability, it's this one. Just when you think everything's going perfect and you're on the way to a serious relationship, poof he's gone and you're left wondering what the hell just happened.
The thing with Aquarius men is that they can fear commitment, initially. You can't box them in and make them feel less independent and macho, that's just not going to work. If they feel like you're closing in and taking over their lives, they will push further way from you until they completely disappear from your life for good. You have to let them initiate talks of commitment and moving forward in your relationship. He has to be the one to bring it up, not you. Think of him like a tiny puppy. If you make too much noise and keep petting him, he's just going to run away scared and avoid you, but if you whisper sweetly and gently play with him, he'll roll over on his back and let you rub his tummy. Letting you rub his tummy means he trusts you. You must get the Aquarius guy to trust you before he'll even consider making the relationship more serious.
Definitely, definitely no ultimatums with this guy. You'll lose him faster than that guy in the "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" movie. No way is he going to make a serious commitment because you're being pushy. He'll be pushy right back and pull a disappearing act on you. This one's full of magic tricks I tell you. The way to this guy's heart is to be there for him. He has to know you have his back. When he needs someone to talk to because he's had a bad day, be that person. If he makes a joke, laugh. (It'll be funny I promise). He also needs to know that you won't intrude on his guy time. This guy is very social and has lots of friends so make sure he's allowed to have nights where he can just go out with them without you freaking out and giving him a hard time. If you do, that's only going to push him further away. Once he figures out that you're a pretty cool chick who makes his life better, he'll make the commitment to you and only you and he'll be faithful, but until then everything is fair game.
Don't be surprised to know that when you're first starting to date him, he's probably dating a few other girls as well. It's not that he's a jerk or a player, he just hasn't made a serious commitment to any of them so he's playing the field. After two weeks of seeing you, and probably a few other girls, you can't come out and have the relationship talk. It's way too soon. He has to make up his mind about you first. When he does, he'll drop the other girls quick. It just has to be his idea and not yours. This guy can be very loyal and faithful, but it's got to be on his terms. He has to think it's all his idea and you had nothing to do with it. The way to do that is at least at first, make sure he initiates contact. Let him call, text, or Facebook you first. Once you're seriously dating, then you can talk whenever you feel like it, but in the delicate early stages, make him work for it. He'll appreciate you that much more trust me.
If you're debating whether you want to give an Aquarius guy a try or not, definitely do! You (probably) won't regret it. If nothing else you'll have a good story to tell your best friends about next time you're having dinner and drinks. He may be peculiar and downright strange sometimes, but isn't that better then bored and unoriginal? You'll never be bored with this guy and you'll never be able to figure out what he's thinking or about to say next because he's so unpredictable. He's like that roller coaster that's supposed to be the biggest and funnest around. Sure when you get up close, you might think you know what's it all about, but you never really know until you get on because those twists and turns get crazy. You might get a little dizzy, sure, but the adrenaline rush you get just might be worth it..
