No one can turn on the charm better than an Aries man who is in love! His childlike directness combined with the innate grace of his Libra side can melt the heart of any woman he chooses as long as he is her type. An acquired taste, he has a lot to learn and far to go, but despite his blunders, he is quick to learn from his mistakes. He is an innocent at heart, and loveable as a child.
If you want to be with Aries for the long haul, you’ll have to embrace his chosen lifestyle. Does that mean he wants everything on his terms? Well, everything that matters to him. We know tons of Aries men who are in long-term relationships, even married, but live in separate homes from their partners. Some even have open relationships, or some need that requires an “understanding” between you. One bi-curious Aries man agreed to marry his longtime girlfriend, but she had to allow him to have one “boys’ night” where he cuddled or made out with a man. How she put up with it, we don’t know—in this case, he threw a fit and threatened to walk unless he got his way. She decided to put up or shut up. If what’s good for the Aries goose ain’t good for the gander, he’d sooner fly away than change his migratory habits.
You’ll never meet a shy Aries, and though subtlety is not one of their strongest personality traits, they’ll keep you laughing and will always dazzle you with their dynamic energy, creativity, and wild moves on the dance floor. Aries men are mischievous but not devious, sometimes foolhardy but never fools, egotistic but not selfish, seriously sexy, and extremely fun to be around.
Once he’s smitten, Aries focuses all his attention on the object of his desire. Cardinal fire is intense! Like a match igniting, his heart is instantly aflame, and he won’t be swayed. When an Aries becomes infatuated, it is only too obvious to his friends, for he single-mindedly speaks of little else. This might be a bit of a joke to those who know him well. When he encounters her, his behavior may be cartoonishly awkward, his feelings overly apparent. He can’t hide his heart; it hangs nakedly on his sleeve! Some women find this sort of attention unwelcome, but many are charmed by his directness, sincerity, and passion.
Home is a place to crash, to change clothes, and maybe to roll in the hay – so don’t be surprised if your Aries paramour invites himself over to your place much more often. In fact, you may never see his space at all, unless you happen to share it with him. In which case, get ready to finish up the dishes he started to do before he got bored and moved on to something else, and make sure that wet laundry gets into the dryer before it starts to mildew. He’ll definitely begin a chore with great enthusiasm, but often get distracted by something new that absolutely needs doing before the first thing is ever completed.
Aries loves to flirt and enjoys every nuance of that first attraction. If a woman catches his interest, he will all but stand on his head to get her attention. Like a schoolboy, his approach can be annoying and even overwhelming. When he is rejected, as he often is (because his approach is not for everyone), he bounces back and is happy to keep trying. His heart is easily (if temporarily) broken, but nothing can keep this man down.
An Aries man inherits the god of war’s ability to quickly strategize and form a plan of attack. Whether it’s in business, war or love, Aries is always up to the challenge. He is highly competitive in every area of his life. He enjoys competing against himself as much as he does with others. His career is a benchmark of accomplishments, especially those he garners for being the first in his company or industry to achieve certain successes and milestones. When it comes to his love interest, Aries is drawn to the most desirable partner. He enjoys the competition to win the object of his desire, since he’s certain he’ll be the victor.
From just someone’s sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it’s too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
The Ram will fixate on some point about the Sagittarius woman, which could be something you love about yourself, or not. If you can satisfy his fixation, though, you will be absolutely worshipped by him.
This kind of self-absorption isn’t coming from a truly narcissistic place, but from an honest self-assurance of his own capability and all-around awesomeness. It’s true that Mars-ruled Aries men are good at what they do, and they’re not shy about standing in the spotlight.
Stubborn as the Ram that symbolically represents him, the typical Aries man is a warrior for what he believes to be right and true. With driven, passionate, and courageous personalities, these men tend to be movers and shakers who make big things happen in their careers and communities. Their assertiveness can be mistaken for aggression, but often it’s just the raw enthusiasm and verve that propels these horned creatures up and down the mountain.
Going the extra mile will make him feel special – he wants to feel like he matters, so show him that he does by giving him gifts that are meant for him and him alone. Your Aries man is an original – there’s no one else quite like him, so don’t think for an instant that a Hallmark card or something you picked up at the mall is going to cut it. If anyone else has it, he probably doesn’t want it.
Aries is a fire sign, and this man has enough passion for several men. This can be a problem for the less mature Aries, who has not learned about boundaries and may not be willing to hear a ‘no’. An immature Aries can be infantile about sexuality; he wants what he wants now and can’t comprehend why his partner’s needs should matter to him. If he is in love with a strong woman who can stand up for herself, he can learn the hard way ‘no means no.’ A partner who can hold her own will command his respect; the danger is he will take advantage of someone with weak self esteem and poor boundaries. He does not mean harm and does not even recognize he is taking advantage; like a child, he simply takes what he can get until he reaches a limit he can’t go past.
The Aries man is a natural leader, so if he does want kids, he takes great pride in being “head of the household.” There’s a tinge of chest-beating chauvinism to this, a sense that you could be cast into the roles of traditional, Leave It To Beaver-era husband and wife. Of course, you’ll never sleep in separate twin beds like the Cleavers. Mostly it will all be for show, another part of the peacock you’ll have to deal with. Even if you don’t have kids, there will always be a very important third “member” of your household: his penis, that is. The Aries man is incredibly proud and fascinated of everything his can do. And you’d better be, too. There’s usually plenty to appreciate there, anyhow. It will be obvious when you meet him that he knows that.
This enthusiastic lot is always ready for adventure and excitement. Besides, they love surprises as they keep them engaged and mentally stimulated. Anything predictable and/ or straight from the text-book dampens their spirits.
The Aries personality is one of extremes – there is no middle of the road here – so get ready to be equally as clear about what you want, and to be sure that you are speaking your own mind. The Aries man wants a powerful match that he can respect, and doesn’t have a lot of time for passivity, mixed messages, or doublespeak – but once he’s decided he wants you, he’ll put up with a lot if he thinks he can attain the prize.
Generally they don’t. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Aries men do or don’t. Individuals get offended by general statements that don’t apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:
The most likely romance between you will be work-related, Virgo woman. If you are put together to work on a specific project, your goal will be the glue that bonds you. Can you make a life of happiness your next big collaboration?
Your attraction to the Ram is understandable. He moves through the world on his own terms and makes commitments that are adhered to. His good looks are complemented with athleticism that makes him look physically fit even when he might have stayed away from the gym for quite some time.
Aries has a difficult time finding an ideal mate. As a leader-driven archetype who thrives on challenging new projects, commitment is not in his nature. Individuals with a moon or Venus in Aries have a very hard time settling down, and it will take one remarkable woman to keep him homebound. What an Aries desires will often depend on where this sign manifests in his chart. However, for a chart-dominant Aries, an equally passionate mate who is direct yet mysterious may have a chance at catching his interest long term.
The level of Aries’ impulsiveness is determined by how mature he is and the kind of self-exploration he’s done. An immature Aries can be head over heels in love every other day with someone new. If he’s learned how to develop relationships and understands the rewards of nurturing a serious love relationship, his impulsive nature manifests as spontaneity and openness to new experience.
The Aries man is a mixture of fearless warrior and undisciplined child. Aries is one of the easiest signs to understand, these are action people, extroverted and assertive. They want to be in charge, the boss, the hunter, the instigator. They are typically confident, fiery, bold, spontaneous and independent.
Holding on to his affections might seem impossible at first. If you can adjust your expectations, you will realize that he is already meeting most of what you want in a partner. Aries men are turned off by clingy women, needy partners, and a lingering invasion of their private spaces and time.
When the Aries man loves, he holds on tight. This can make him a tyrant who runs his home like a four-star general. He wants his kids to be successful and will hold them to high standards—though he spoils them ridiculously, too. This won’t always be an easy relationship. There could be episodes of screaming, tears, hurled objects and slammed doors with your warrior prince. He can take you to the edge of a mental breakdown. But as our Aries uncle Sami once said, “If you can’t fight with someone, you can’t love them.” For every shattered wine glass or hyperventilating meltdown, there will be passionate sex, unparalleled intimacy and devotion so powerful it takes your breath away. Together, you’ll write this unforgettable love story with blood, sweat and tears—every drop that’s in you.
Aries ruling planet is Mars. Romans identified their god Mars with the Greek god of war which was Ares. Aries has a thirst for, and love affair with, waging war. This translates into an Aries profile that is filled with aggressive behavior. An immature Aries sign may constantly incite fights with other males in an effort to assuage his warrior drive.
The Aries male is practically an archetype of raw masculinity. Inherently dominant and a natural born leader, an Aries man thrives on challenge and confrontation. Both the fiery and cardinal forces that govern Aries make for a highly aggressive and even unbalanced individual. For this reason, Aries males are hard to tame and often suffer a lack of self-restraint.
Ironically, one of the most common complaints about them is that they can be too direct and honest about such things. This isn’t a man who sits around planning or leaving subtle clues! If you have to ask with an Aries then… probably he doesn’t (or doesn’t yet!) For a full description of how an Aries man acts when in love please see our article on Aries in love
Aries is a sign which sometimes gets bad press in this area. Being bold and spontaneous does have it’s disadvantages here. If they decide to cheat, then they typically can do so easier than most other signs. With that said, they are no more likely to want to cheat than any other sign. Whether they love their partner or not is the key factor. If they do, they are totally loyal. If they don’t.. then all bets are off.
If you are just one of his conquests, he won’t feel obligated to stay true. Aries man can be a sexual predator, winning one prize after the other, conquering his partners one by one. He enjoys the thrill of the game and needs to feel deep emotions in order to stop. In case you are a princess he won over by pure chivalry, you can trust him. The only way for him to keep that knight image of himself is to be just, sincere and brave.
Uncomplicated, bold, aggressive and impulsive, Aries can sometimes be seen as selfish, insensitive, domineering, blunt, outspoken and impatient. They’re never afraid of taking a risk. Lacking in self control they more than compensate in resilience – this is one tough cookie, who will live life to the fullest.
The Aries man is great at either having lots of sex with lots of different people, or being completed devoted to one woman. Nothing in between. He’s too impatient to master the finer points of courtship. It doesn’t even occur to him. The Aries man is endearingly authentic to a fault. Even if he’s dating multiple women when you meet, he’ll just tell you outright. Although it may seem crude, his open-book policy can actually create a space of greater trust.
With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see my article on astrology compatibility readings.
He tends to be very competitive, but unlike some signs also has a strong sense of fair play – he wants to win for himself; to prove to the world he could do it – and isn’t interested in deceit or cheating. He hates to be bossed around, or feel trapped.
No, this article is based only on sun signs. Those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone’s personality.
The Aries male is a man’s man. He’s admired by women and men alike and gets along with other men until he’s challenged. Any man who steps in Aries’ way will quickly feel his wrath. Aries truly enjoys sports, especially those that challenge him. Mountain climbing, biking, car racing and martial arts are typically good matches.
Though an Aries male can sometimes make for a complicated relationship, this zodiac sign isn’t actually complicated on a personal level. Aries’ cardinal triplicity and fire element are in perfect harmony; both are forward and direct energies. Aries is a soldier and a leader and his relationships will be only become complicated when challenged by individuals of a contradictory nature. Do not try and restrain him, but instead allow him to thrive in his element and all will be well. The world has developed through centuries of political and technological progress, often fueled by the drive of Aries individuals. This energy and archetype is vital and should only be suppressed when Aries’ truly worst points rear themselves.
He may seem like a brute, following his instincts and rarely using his brain, however smart he might be. Still, there is a soft side to him. If his loved one is in need of his help and support, he will show exactly how much he cares. When he feels respected and loved, he will let his guard down and seem like a cuddly bear at times. Aries might be ashamed to be soft, but when he feels trust, he can’t help it. There is a warm, behind the act, nature to this man, something that needs to be discovered in time and is reachable by approaching him with a lot of tenderness, however he might act.
No advice will ever apply to every Aries man as they are all unique in various ways. I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn’t nearly as useful. My astrology readings solve real relationship problems for real people every day. For more information please see the article on relationship advice.
If your sights are set on Aries, the last thing you want to do is chase him. Aries is all about the chase, but he prefers to be the hunter. He enjoys the art of pursuit, especially the first moves of flirting, and he’s very good at each stage of the chase. Enjoy the attention and don’t give in too soon or the excitement will be over once he catches up with you. The harder he must try to win your attention, the greater he’ll consider his win. After all, he’s number one and believes he deserves only the best.
This is not the sign of a homebody, so don’t expect the living space of the Aries man to be welcoming or comfortable. It works for them, and they have it all arranged the way they like it, but concessions might not be made for the desires of anyone else. There may just be one place setting or chair at the table, or one pillow on the bed. It’s not that they didn’t think of you, it’s just that they often don’t think of home as a place to share, or even really a place where they want to spend too much time – not with all the exciting things to do and see out in the world.
Besides, it’s not like Aries thinks relationships are the be-all end-all of life. He gets restless, itchy for the next adventure. His eyes rove, his imagination wanders. Isn’t there another damsel to save somewhere? Another sexual position he hasn’t tried? He knows his desires may be more than one woman can supply—and he’s not above shopping at a few different stores to complete his sexual grocery list. To this independent sign, bachelorhood is a cherished prize. It’s his ticket to freedom, adventure, unlimited expression—his access to feeling truly alive. He’ll never trade it in unless he truly believes a relationship will provide all those treasures and more.
Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don’t however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.
The danger for an Aries in a relationship is being too controlling and confrontational. They need to consciously curb their desire to battle and win. More specifically, they need to learn how to lose when fighting someone they love. It may sound like a quote from Sun Tzu, but in love they need to learn the art of ‘winning by appearing to lose’.
