He likes objects that combine both form and function, and anything that appeals to his childlike sense of curiosity will be a natural winner with an Aquarian’s inquisitive personality and voracious hunger for knowledge. Don’t make the mistake of gifting this guy anything too run-of-the-mill – playing it safe with a boring gift will fail to capture his attention, and he may interpret anything too practical as a lack of interest on your part.
Interdependence is the name of his game. In fact, it was our Aquarius friend Miguel who first introduced us to this term when describing his perfect relationship. You both have full lives, then come together voluntarily, to unwind, grow and have fun. He longs to coexist, rather than merge. Of course, this can only happen once the free-spirited Aquarius man actually decides he’s ready for a relationship. When you’re from another planet, bonding with humans can be hard, after all. He can be aloof and awkward, hesitant to commit. The Aquarius man doesn’t want to be tied to one woman until he’s sampled the whole panacea of options.
Ideally, the Aquarian man will put his genius traits to work helping out charitable organizations, or being a part of creative movements. You’ll often find this Water-Bearing wizard working with music festivals, teaching college students about transgressive politics, or trying to discover cures for terminal illnesses. Whatever he does, you can count on his profession being somewhat out of left field, and always completely unexpected.
The aforementioned Aquarius Dr. Lobster has founded a movement called Modern Romantic Completionism. Another Aquarius man we know founded Cuddle Party, a national series of sex- and substance-free workshops where people get together in their pajamas and just…cuddle. His website describes the event as a “playful, fun workshop…for people to rediscover non-sexual touch and affection, a space to reframe assumptions about men and women, and a great networking event to meet new friends, roommates, business partners and significant others.” Classic Aquarius.
The home of an Aquarian man can feel a little bit like the workshop of a mad scientist – often with elements of his current projects scattered about, or some experiment taking place in the middle of the kitchen table (or in the refrigerator). He’s always got some bizarre new hobby taking up space in his life, and he rarely gets rid of the remnants of his past enchantments once they’ve lost their glamour.
However, in his mid- to late 30s, the Aquarius man may finally decide to reckon with those demons known as feelings. He might plunge into a philosophical movement or a spiritual modality to explore his emotions safely, in an almost scientific way. (Either that, or he smokes a lot of weed and feels those funny sensations—love! anger! sadness!—that are so foreign to him otherwise.)
The realm of ideas and creativity is where an Aquarian man will truly flourish. And bringing people together to help humanity is always of the utmost importance to this cerebral air sign, who uses his mind and formidable intelligence to attempt to solve age-old problems. He is motivated by the idea of Utopia and creating a better world for all people, but sometimes loses himself in the big picture and can’t quite work out the little details necessary to get his would-be castle in the sky off the ground.
They are enthusiastic, witty, affectionate and social. However, they will not get emotionally close to people easily. They will maintain some distance. But once they are sure of things, the Aquarius men will go out of their way to help friends.
As a father, the Aquarius male is a patient listener and an excellent shot at math problems. He can be instrumental in letting the children discover their innate abilities and talents through creative and imaginative ways. Money matters will never really be a problem because the resourceful Aquarius male will often have something to be generous, just do not be overly extravagant about your expenses. What the Aquarius husband wants is a partner who can give him the space as much as he gives her space.
Aquarian men are frequently perceived as wacky geniuses, full of brilliant plans and concepts, but not always capable of bringing these to fruition. They are social personalities who move in extremely varied circles – like the zany high school guy who was somehow able to move smoothly between the jocks, the nerds, and the freaks with little friction, getting along well with everyone.
Once he learns how to process his emotions, this humanitarian sign wants to share what he’s learned on his quest. Like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, the prank-pulling eternal jokester emerges as the ultimate SNAG (Sensitive New Age Guy). Formerly squeamish about anything more touchy-feely than a backslapping hug or a high five, he suddenly starts training for his massage license, or becomes an eager volunteer to give out shoulder rubs.
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..
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 get close. Congrats, now you’re one of them.
It’s an interesting paradox: commitment can either tie you down or set you free. Being an Air sign, the Aquarius man needs a relationship that gives him wings and a purpose. “I like to feel useful,” says Gary. Aquarius wants a partner to be his pupil, travelmate and sounding board. Above all, he needs to be trusted. “Anytime the words ‘you should’ come out of my mouth, he shuts off,” says one woman of her Aquarius boyfriend. “So now I say things like ‘have you considered…’” She learned to be nurturing, but to never mother or smother him. It’s a fine balance.
These men can be very unpredictable. They never have a fixed pattern when it comes to how they behave or what they are going to do next. For instance, you may be thinking that they are enjoying the good times and expect them to go off on an adventurous journey, but they may surprise you by getting into meditation.
Considering that love is just another human experience for him, the Aquarius man is never comfortable with the idea of getting married because of the prolonged emotional demands of the opposite sex. Furthermore, his idea of having a friend in his wife is something that is not so distant from the Aquarian.
Eroticism can be experimental territory for an Aquarius, and he may enjoy mind games, role play, or taking a scientific approach to lovemaking by using the latest in sex toys with his lovers. Not all Aquarians allow themselves to indulge physically in what their minds may be fascinated by, so it’s helpful when they have an open-minded partner who’s willing to explore new worlds with them.
This inquisitive nature of the Aquarian male does not extend to himself, though. He is rather secretive about his feelings and purposely makes his reactions complex just for the fun of fooling others. This is the reason why, despite being friendly and all to everyone, his inner circle of friends are those who reflect his interests and know how his mind works. Do not let his gentleness and calm fool you because deep inside is his true introverted nature. It is not wise to provoke him nor to exploit him or his inner circle of friends because his tolerance for such is short.
Forget the melodrama if you want to set the bait on winning an Aquarius man. Guys under this sign will not dive into an emotional conversation. The trick is to be his best friend, be sincere and straightforward and be prepared to talk about topics that interest this man of the future – yes, you can talk about the ozone layer. Physically, Aquarius men love the unconventional so it’s okay if you can carry colors and lines that shock people on other ends of the zodiac. These guys are naturally attracted to taller ladies but don’t feel bad if you are vertically challenged.
He loves any memorabilia that relates to his chosen profession (or latest obsession), so if you share a home with this guy, he may need his own man-cave or a separate area to display all his favorite treasures and really spread out.
When not permanently bonded, the Aquarian man can take a businesslike air to sex, romance, or when he’s in love. These relationships can feel purely transactional, and he may prefer to just have “friends with benefits” arrangements. He can have a detached and even humorous attitude towards sexuality – and is known for being callous and leaving a trail of broken hearts behind him.
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.
However, when he does find his true love, learns to trust his partner, and they decide to settle down, it is for life. The strength of the Aquarius man in marriage lies in his belief that it is a sacred ceremony, one of society’s enduring institutions. As such, any woman who has married an Aquarius man will be glad to learn of his high regard for marriage and family life. Perhaps the major downside of the Aquarian male is anchored in his introverted nature that he does not openly expresses his feelings of love for his partner. This gives the impression that he is not a romantic type of person.
The Aquarius men tend to be idealists and it is difficult for an average person to live up to their high expectations. Their relationships, both personal and professional, may suffer despite their genuine attempts to adjust to circumstances. They have a major problem with commitment as they don’t like to compromise on their independence. This reluctance to commit may pose a hurdle, especially when it comes to romantic relationships.
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.
Aquarians rarely have conventional, boring desk jobs, much preferring to create their own schedules and not be limited by inhibiting corporate structures or lots of rules that don’t give them free reign to stretch the limits of their imaginations.
Aquarius is the sign of the future, and this can prevent him from living in the moment. One Aquarian, laughing at his own quandry, admits, “I just need to know how everything will turn out; then I can relax.” Another Aquarius describes relationships where, out of nervousness, he locked himself into a commitment before really being sure about the person, then felt trapped. His anxiety and nerves often get the best of him, preventing him from forging deeper bonds because of this knee-jerk response. Tranquilizer, anyone?
If you go out on the town with an Aquarian, you may notice that he seems to know everybody, saying hi to the servers and gallery owners wherever he goes – but who really knows him? Few people are patient enough to really peel back the layers and discover what makes this guy tick.
If an Aquarius does sign on for the long haul, he needs to be handled with care. Once his heart is invested, the Aqaurius man can be hypersensitive and overly intense—no longer the cool, devil-may-care dude holding court at the party. As Gary says, “My problem is I think too much, break down and analyze everything. If a woman is late, I think it means she doesn’t care.”
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.
When it comes to relationships, the Aquarius man will settle for nothing short of a sexual and romantic revolution. Like a bedside Che Guevera, he wants to shake up love as we know it and bring romance solidly into the 21st century—or perhaps even the 22nd.
An Aquarian man’s personality often makes for diffident, somewhat distracted dads. They are much more interested in their progeny when the kids have learned to walk and talk, and they can take part in their education and engage in conversation. They shine their brightest when they learn to show empathy for their children’s emotions. Play and silliness come naturally to an Aquarius dad, and he will always be happy to let his children express themselves and evolve into whoever they want to be.
Hi. My name is Rodel. I am the owner of this website and an avid researcher of just about anything that interest me particularly in the relationship category. I want to share with you my experiences, discoveries and information about this topic. Hope you like my blog.
The silvery heart of an Aquarian man is like a wonder of antiquated clockwork – this Uranus-ruled guy is often pulling out all the springs and cogs and trying to sort it out himself, but sometimes his emotions get jumbled up with his logic and make a mess of the whole mechanism.
They are very soft-spoken and polite, but it is to be kept in mind that they are fundamentally non-conformist people. They don’t mind going against social norms or popular opinions when they want to bring about important changes in the world they live in. Developmental activities and research interest them a lot, but they don’t shy away from doing social work too.
