Signs a Pisces Likes You

I'm a Midwesterner with a background in writing and media. My articles are mainly about relationships, dating, and heartbreak.

Who Is Pisces?

Pisces is one of my favorite signs. Also known as the twin fish, Pisces is a mutable water sign with a soft and gentle tone. Like fellow water signs Cancer and Scorpio, Pisceans want to build a relationship with another person, share a telepathic connection, and find a soulmate. They see true love as life’s ambition.

Without love, Pisces can fall into a deep depression, and on a bad day, they can feel troubled and lost. Their dark side should not be taken for granted. Even though Pisceans don’t get over heartbreak easily — they often like to dive into the waters anyway.

The Twin Fish Sign Is the Mentor of the Zodiac

Pisces falls at the end of the zodiac calendar, making it the most wisened and experienced. This sign is not like Cancer, who is a pregnant woman about to embark on a new journey, nor does it have the rebellious nature of a Scorpio scorned.

Pisces is both the beginning and the end. People born under this sign are the most martyr-like because they prioritize sacrifice. They’re always striving for closure and new beginnings. They want to accomplish something in this world before moving on to the next reality. They’re constantly daydreaming: their heads are full of visions of heaven.

Pisceans Can Get Anxious but for Good Reason

Pisces are empaths, and they tend to be compassionate old souls. Most Pisceans I have met are incredibly intelligent and have nervous energy. However, I wouldn’t describe their nervousness as Gemini-like. While Gemini, a mutable air sign, gets nervous because they have so many ideas running through their head, a Piscean’s anxiety is a result of their big goals, their larger-than-life heart, and their unwavering concern for others.

Unfortunately, this concern cannot always be expressed. People born under this sign often hide because they feel that they have too big of a heart and too vast an imagination to really fit in with this monochromatic world. Even in terms of sexuality, Pisces have trouble adjusting to the norm because they crave romance. They find that a lot of people search for meaningless sexual encounters rather than for something rich and meaningful, like a soul mate.

What Different Types of Pisces Are Like

Pisces have different ways of expressing their emotions depending on their communication style.

Communication StyleEmotional NeedsActions

Kind. Sometimes talks at length, but sometimes seems absent.

Wants to spend time with you. Suggests or hints at ways you could meet.

Buys you gifts and meals.

Interpersonal, long conversations that can go on for hours.

Expresses emotions by sending you materials such as movies, music, books, and pretty pictures. You might randomly receive a well-crafted Youtube video from them.

Makes a point to make you their favorite, gives you attention, and tries to make every moment special. This type of Pisces is a romantic at heart.

Silly, demented, hilarious, and inquisitive. You'll see every side of this Pisces because they are comfortable around you.

Wants to grow closer and closer to you until the borders are not so defined. You are them, and they are you.

Would sacrifice everything for you. Will be there when your car dies, or will take you to the hospital during an emergency.

Expert texter. Makes an effort to get your attention

Gushes about their feelings, then withdraws.

Comes up with both loose and concrete plans for things you can do together.

Dreams of writing love letters and of having romantic conversations.

Tries to make you laugh to see what you look like with tears of joy. They have a lot of questions about what makes you tick and how to make it happen.

Constantly keeps an eye on you—sometimes gently, sometimes vigilantly.

Similarities Between Pisces and Aquarius

I find that Pisces and Aquarius have a great deal in common because they’re both at the end of the zodiac calendar, they’re both winter signs, and they’re both unusual. Aquarius is the flat-out rebel, whereas Pisces is the innovator. However, Pisces will sometimes try to act tough in order to strengthen themselves and develop a backbone.

These are two of the most misunderstood signs. A lot of Aquarius and Pisces-types are attracted to journalism as a career — they want to discover the facts, stories, and needs of humanity.

How Can You Tell If a Pisces Is Interested In You?

When a person born under Pisces is interested in you, they will want to serve you. They will give you gifts, compliment you, and try to really get to know you. They will actively show interest, but it might not be in an overtly flirtatious way — they’ll put their energy out there to see how you receive it.

Like other water signs, Pisces can be very scandalous. However, they really believe in true love and are looking for their twin fish soulmate. Though they may not explicitly say that they believe in soulmates, they have high standards, high expectations, and want a close interpersonal connection. Most Pisces are looking for monogamy. They don’t stay single for long.

What Does a Pisces Want?

People born under Pisces are saps. While Scorpios, for example, are into raunchy-dirty love, Pisceans are drawn toward romantic love. Not that the latter doesn’t like both, but, in evaluating a relationship, a Scorpio sign will look at sex, while a Pisces sign will look at romance. A relationship with a Pisces would be more romantic rather than purely sensual or sexual.

Though Pisces is flexible enough to step away from their internal dialogue and experiment, a focused Pisces will want things done in a romantic way — they want sincere expressions of love from someone who will be true to them and with whom they can develop an intense telepathic connection. They want to be able to feel their partner from afar, even if they are physically not there.

Pisceans are daydreamers — if they open up to you, they will share their intense imagination with you. Expect long conversations, emotional explorations, and a focus on you and your life. I find Pisceans to be more focused than Cancers or Scorpios. Cancers are so focused on their heart that their tidal wave of emotions can overtake them. Scorpios, on the other hand, get so lost in their sexual appetite that they lose focus and even loyalty if left unchecked. Pisceans are more sage-like — they are old souls.

How the Fire of Love Builds for Them

A Pisces likes to go with the flow, and sometimes they have difficulty deciding which path to take. It is a sign that follows love, sensuality, and sometimes selfishness. This is a sensitive sign that understands how to be one with others.

They tend to be accepting of flaws, which sometimes causes them to be easy prey for those who want to take advantage of them. Because of this, they will put up a guard and sometimes give up on their goal of finding true love, giving into sexual encounters that don’t necessarily suit them. This is dangerous for a Pisces, as this sign puts a lot of emphasis on finding harmony and balance (somewhat like a Libra).

Pisceans like to emotionally connect with people. They don’t want to just hang out or come up with plans, they want to feel like they are taking care of your needs, emotionally bonding with you, and devoting themselves to you. When making decisions, Pisceans prefer to defer to their partner; otherwise, they will use their intuition to guide them, daydream, or simply observe from a distance.

A Pisces likes to give — if they have a crush on you, they’ll give you their time, body, and gifts. Pisceans need to focus on whether their partner is actually reciprocating these actions or just using them. If you always take from and never give, you’ll likely lose them, as Pisces personalities feel down when they don’t feel like they’re being treated fairly in a relationship. Though they might not know what to do about it, they’ll sense an imbalance.

What a Pisces Is Like in a Relationship

Though people under the twin fish zodiac are sweethearts, do not take them for granted. They have intense lows and towering highs. Sometimes a Pisces will project idealistic attributes onto their lover out of narcissism, and they don’t realize that their partner doesn’t have the right qualities or isn’t holding their end of the deal.

A Pisces will do what they can to express their love. Pisceans can be elusive and may avoid telling you how they really feel. Other times, it’s just that they aren’t sure about their feelings. Pisces types are sentimental, and they may look for validation or reassurance from someone they like. A Pisces in a relationship wants to find someone who gives them a foundation, who gives them a sense of belonging, and who can externalize the visions they have in their head. When their visions start coming true, that’s when they’ll fall for you.

A Pisces can see you for who you really are. They are able to empathize with those around them, and they seek to find the most genuine people. Because of their idealism and narcissism, however, Pisceans have the tendency to fall in love with a few bad apples.

A Pisces can fall in love easily, but they can also be unsure of what they want. A Pisces can be very gentle, and you'll have no idea that they like you because they pine and aren't direct. Sometimes they are forward, but they might also wait until you approach them. It takes a good communicator to find out if Pisces actually likes you.
