The Aries man typically prefers feminine and ‘girly’ women, ideally who are intelligent but straightforward, and are not overly ambitious or bossy by his standards (which means they can be fairly ambitious and bossy by anyone else’s!)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Aries see themselves as leaders. While it’s true they are indeed leaders, they lead by action and not by planning or intellectual process. This can be good or bad depending on the situation. They are arguably the most spontaneous sign, and as such the most prone to regret things later.
Ruled by the planet Mars, the Aries men move through the world on the their own terms and pace, and that is a major reason why some people find it too challenging to keep up with them. However, if you learn to accept their peculiarities, getting along with them will be a lot easier. Let’s go through some basic characteristics of the Aries men one by one.
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.
This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information – everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.
They also have to make a conscious effort to look around to see other people’s feelings and desires, it doesn’t happen automatically for them. If you’re the sensitive type, then it’s fair to say you may get your feelings hurt occasionally, though it probably won’t be intentional.
Once the thrill of the chase is over, Aries is tempted to stray unless his mate rekindles his imagination. Aries wants true love, but he’s also a romantic who enjoys wining and dining his lover. He seeks a romantic partner who can be a pal when he wants to go whitewater rafting or exploring a new hiking trail. A partner who can shift in and out of the role of lover and friend will surely capture his heart forever.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Everything sharp, red colored and hot will be a good fit. If he doesn’t already have a collection, you can always buy him a Swiss knife, a set of tools, a hunter’s hat, a flame thrower or a pair of sexy boxers. He will be happy if you show how masculine and strong he is, and give him something practical to use. Don’t obsess about his presents if you will have any resulting expectations – he will never obsess about yours.
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.
Speaking up about your worldview will make him much more interested in you, Pisces woman. The fact that you two share a common bond that runs this deep should make your pursuit of the Ram that much easier.
Every Ram needs a little area in the universe to call his own. If you can leave him alone when the need for his brooding arises, you will have his heart. He seeks the reassuring tranquility of partnership, yet needs a respite to be one with the universe.
Let’s start with a disclaimer: you might not like what you hear. Or, you might just shout “finally!” The Aries man has a very specific, grand and demanding vision for his ultimate relationship. In life, he orders everything customized to his tastes, and those tastes are very particular. He may not subconsciously realize that human beings, imbued with things like personalities and free will, can’t conform to his fantasies on demand. He’d rather just find that “needle in the haystack” relationship, the impossible dream come true. When he finds that, he gives it every ounce of his being. He turns off the selfish switch and pours on the giving. So why would he do that for just anyone?
He is not much of a romantic and will probably do things by the book. He will bring you red roses, take you to a fine restaurant and might put you in a limousine if he really wants to seduce you. When you go to the movies, he will buy tickets for the new action thriller, even though you would like to see a romantic comedy and order a huge meat stake in the restaurant, even if you are a vegetarian. He will expect to have sex on your first date and will go on expecting it every time you see each other. Your phone conversations will be short, messages rare, except if you create a hot line you would use for sexual interaction when you are not in a position to see each other.
An Aries man lives for adrenaline, change, excitement, and novelty – so if you want to give him gifts, choose skydiving lessons, martial arts classes, or an exciting surprise vacation to somewhere he’s never been before. Surprises of all kinds are welcome here – the Ram is a sign who actually enjoys being caught a little off-guard, and will totally respect you for being able to pull off a surprise party without him finding out.
When he’s in love, the Aries man becomes single-minded when struck by Cupid’s arrow! This cardinal fire sign does not hesitate to make the first move, and he’s not afraid to take risks or to appear foolish. Headstrong and impetuous, he learns the hard way, by making mistakes, a lot of them.
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.
This is always a hard question to answer, as one person’s idea of kinky can be very different to someone else’s. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Aries men are amongst the more kinky, yes.
Aries can be jealous, and though he will try his best not to show it, he is not good at hiding his feelings. At root, he is terribly insecure and needs a lot of attention and positive reinforcement. Deeply competitive, he is an alpha male (or sometimes an alpha wannabe) who can’t stand the thought another man might get the love, sex, and attention that belongs to him. Yes, he is possessive, but he doesn’t want to be possessed himself. He has a double standard about a lot of things because his emotions are fixed on ‘me’. In order to grow, he will have to embrace his Libra Earth qualities, learning his partner’s needs matter as much as his own and that fairness and balance are important to his own long-term happiness.
Confrontational, short-tempered, egoistic and controlling, the Aries men rarely admit their shortcomings and are not so keen rectifying their mistakes. Besides, their demanding attitude creates pressure on their relationships, causing irreparable damage at times. The Aries men know how to play with words in order to get what they want. While it is a positive trait to some extent, it also makes them manipulative.
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’.
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.
Relationships are not easy to Aries in general, but Aries men have special trouble when needed to connect to their partner, feel compassion and think for two. He finds it much easier to do everything alone and finds it rare in a partner to have enough energy to follow his lead. Aries man is prone to chauvinism more than any other sign in the zodiac. It is imperative for his partner to stay independent, financially and socially, if a relationship with this man is to succeed.
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?
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.
The Aries man is hot, hot, hot – physically and emotionally. Even when not conventionally handsome, these guys possess a kind of bravado and raw sexuality that oozes off of them, often making them infuriatingly attractive. There’s an innate confidence in the way they carry themselves – an energetic saunter, a wry grin, a double entendre that will make you want to stand closer to them in spite of yourself. Sex with an Aries man can be quite an athletic affair – lots of sweat pouring off slick flanks, acrobatic positions, and possibly a bit of consensual rough play.
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.
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.
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.
An adventurous and exciting lover, Aries men are never dull or boring. On the contrary the main risk is that a partner may not be able to keep up with them, or lack their resilience to bounce back from the many minor crisis and setbacks which being so impulsive and dynamic naturally creates. We have a separate article on Aries in love
Aries men make great initiators and extremely hard workers. They will put in a lot of muscle at the beginning of the project, but sometimes lose interest or stamina halfway through, and need support in wrapping things up. An explosive temper can make an Aries a frustrating teammate – they have a hard time masking their often impatient personality when not in charge or working solo.
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.
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.
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.
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 Cancerian woman should avoid the trap of assuming his single-mindedness is something to be stereotyped. Compartmentalize him at your own risk. Be open to adventure and understand that he does not want to stay home every night.
His natural independence makes him a real “catch” as well, as it may appear that he prefers to wander instead of settling down. However, the sincerity and simplicity of the Ram cannot be overstated. You can guarantee you are getting exactly what is advertised. Check him out and you will discover that what you see is what you get.
Capricorn woman, it is much more likely that an Aries man will be your rival for a position at work than it is for you falling in love. But this natural tension does produce an intense and physically exhilarating passion.
