Dating an Aries
Aries wants to go where there is action. This is someone who doesn't necessarily have to chase the fire and smoke because they can bring it. In a romantic relationship, Aries wants things active, upfront, and immediate.
Aries can be confrontational. They like to talk and be direct. They're sultry, competitive, and passionate. They make for intense dates and intense romantic partners.
You either go with Aries, or Aries will leave you in the dust. This sign doesn't hold back from opportunities.
The best Aries dates include:
- Bright colors, explosions, loud noises, and spontaneity.
- The chance to try and explore new things.
- Visiting places that are sexy.
- Mentally stimulating settings.
- A touch of cardio.
- Gorgeous landscapes.
- Places with a noticeable amount of red.
15 Dates to Impress the Aries
The following list includes date ideas in no particular order. This isn't a ranking list.
1. Dance the Night Away: Tango, Salsa, and Samba
When I think of an Aries out on the town, I picture him or her in a Latin nightclub with sexy music, passionate dance moves, and excitable people.
Aries is the type of woman that would have a red dress hanging in her closet. She’s ready to go for tango night. Aries is the type of man who wants to rule the dance floor. He’ll take you on a journey you’ll never forget.
If your Aries hasn't learned the art of dance yet, this is the perfect opportunity to ask them if they'd like to take dance classes together. This can give you structure, a good bonding experience, and a routine. Once you feel confident, you can go to clubs and other places that specialize in tango or salsa.
2. Restaurants With Spice
Aries doesn’t care for a bland meal. They want some spice and strong flavors. They want to feel like things are living, so they like foods with a strong flavor profile. If their mouth isn’t on fire, then the restaurant probably isn’t right for them.
Take them to a restaurant with exotic specialties. Try Indian, Chinese, Korean, African, Mexican, and Caribbean foods. You should go to a restaurant that has style and spark. Think red lights, modern art, a hidden bar, and people in sexy clothes.
Aries loves to be a VIP. They'll be impressed if you can get them into a VIP lounge or bar. They'll be impressed by your knowledge of high-quality restaurants.
3. Hit up the Casinos
Aries has a wild side. They like to take risks. They don't mind spending time at the buffet and then winning big at a game of Poker.
Don't make a habit of going to casinos, but definitely go and have an entertaining time every once in a while. If you live in an area that has upscale casinos, check them out.
Aries likes the flashing lights and modern touches. They won’t necessarily like that it is as cold as Antarctica around the slot machines. Do some research ahead of time: Find a casino with excellent steak, great shows, and great dancing.
4. Competitive Sports
Aries would likely rather be on the field than in the seats, but if you live in an area with professional sports, your partner may want to check out a game.
They want to see a lot of action: People running, a ball going in all directions, and lots of crowd interaction. Aries thrives off energy and enthusiasm.
Figure out what your partner loves to watch, and take them to see their favorite team. Aries also likes to show off their date, and public settings like sporting events are great for that.
5. The Beach
Maybe you're lucky and live on the coast. Maybe you're really lucky and live in Hawaii. There is so much you can do on a beach that would be appealing to an Aries: strutting around in a glamorous swimsuit, getting some sun, playing sand volleyball, drinking a beer or martini, watching fire dancers, and excellent food.
Take your Aries to a beach that has some passionate spirit to it. Aries types thrive in settings that feel alive. They like to go to places where they can show off, be competitive, and have plenty of moments to be close to you.
Keep in mind: Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, the warring planet. This is someone who lives off instinct and has strong leadership skills. They can be really forward, they can be fearless, and they don't hide and hibernate.
6. A Bike Ride Through a Gorgeous Vista
A date with an Aries that includes cardio is a plus. Your Aries might outrun you.
Most people with the sun sign Aries love to travel. It's best to take them somewhere that they can move their limbs rather than be confined to a chair.
Aries is a spring sign, so they like nature and getting outdoors. A bike ride through nature is a refreshing way to spend time together.
7. Stargazing, Going to an Observatory
I know of an Aries who had a giant telescope and would invite her friends to her backyard for a bonfire and stargazing. She would occasionally ramble about the possibility of aliens and other life.
Aries isn't just excited by life on this planet. They're also pretty excited by the idea of life on other planets. They love gazing at the night sky; there is plenty to see from giant stars to spiraling asteroids.
Stargazing can make for a cozy Aries date. Instead of getting into the action of a busy scene, they can be left to wonder. They can explore their more introspective curiosities.
8. Berry Picking and Visiting Orchards
Because Aries is a spring sign, they have a strong affinity for flora and fauna. Take them somewhere during spring that includes lots of blossoms, colors, and fragrances. They love bright red flowers and fruit.
Orchards that double as vineyards are a plus. Aries doesn't mind a glass of red wine. (They also don't mind a cup of espresso.)
Picking fruit is a good bonding experience. You could get fresh apples and make something later at night for dinner or dessert. Aries will enjoy a meal from someone who is creative, who adds spice, who loves flavor, and isn't afraid to try new things.
9. Explore a Museum Together
Aries wants everything at their fingertips. Several signs are jealous and annoyed with Aries and their luck. Not only do they tend to have a competitive, athletic streak. . . they're also one of the smarter signs.
Going to an art museum, especially a fancy one with lots of visitors, will get Aries' mind going. They love creativity. They love having strong talking points. It's also a great place to stretch their legs. There is a reason museum dates are often recommended for people: they have a little bit of everything and easily set the mood right.
10. Horseback Riding
Again, Aries likes cardio. If your Aries is a horse lover, then you should of course hit the trails on a horse. There is something exciting about riding a horse. You can be one with nature and go faster than your two legs.
Also, Aries likes getting to hang out with an animal. The scenery will also help set the mood. The perfect place for an Aries horseback riding date: the beach.
11. Roller Coasters and Rides
Aries likes to be entertained. They love motion. They love challenges. They also like to push the limits. Aries types are thrill-seekers. When young, an amusement park is a great place for a date. When more mature: look for a smoother ride experience in your area, maybe a tour on a gondola.
Adrenaline is a perk of these dates. People will quickly bond because of the rush of endorphins and natural chemicals coursing through their veins.
Take your Aries to where the action is happening. If there is a big event in your area where people wear lively costumes, there are street vendors, and Ferris Wheels, you should take them there for some fun.
A carnival is a great place for Aries to try multiple things in one adventure. They can show off their skills at the games for prizes. They’ll get excited about the food. They’ll love the shows and entertainers. This is a great place to get Aries moving, thinking, and eating.
Wherever there is fire, the Aries should go. They'll be excited about a camping adventure. They'll have fun identifying flora and chasing after fauna. The biggest selling point: a campfire with S'mores. Aries tends to be a pyromaniac. They're the student in the physics class that wants to get up close and personal with the fire experiments.
Go into the wilderness with Aries and plan to have a bonfire, where they can get chatty, they can throw things into the flames, and they can sleep in nature.
14. A Concert
During summer, it's a good idea to take an Aries to go see their favorite band or singer. Concerts have the liveliness that Aries tends to crave. The concerts also come with beer, nachos, loudness, and dancing. Concerts are especially fun if they include a road trip.
Aries feeds off music. They like to people-watch. They love to hold hands with someone who excites them. They're always looking for opportunities to kiss.
Whether it’s a holiday or not, Aries will enjoy playing with fireworks. Of course, follow the rules and be safe. For a romantic evening, candles are nice. For a passionate evening, think fireworks. Big, loud, colorful explosions—this is perfect for your pyromaniac partner. They want to go see big and perfect fireworks shows.
They get a high from playing with sparklers. They like lighting fireworks. It’s a win-win situation for them. They love spontaneity and spectacle. They have childlike wonder as the first sign of the zodiac.
