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.
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.
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.
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’.
Aries plays by his own rules. He doesn’t care how convention says he should behave, and that definitely includes his love life. He will direct his energies with full intensity toward whatever he is most interested in at the moment. What he wants, he pursues, but for all his ardor, he can give up and move on with surprising swiftness if he doesn’t get the response he wants within a certain span of time. Depending on what else is going on in his chart (Moon sign, ascendant sign, other planets, astrological spects, and houses), he may give up quickly or persevere for a while, but patience and persistence are not his strong points.
Leo ladies, your passion could blind you to mundane realities. This exciting partnership often gets off to an amazing start, and then compensates for a lack of energy down the road with unnecessary drama. Provide him some peace once in a while.
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.
The tension you feel around the Ram is the scent of something taboo. Look deeper, Libra woman, and you will see that all of the traits you share have a taint of the forbidden about them, hence the magnetic attraction between you two despite all warnings.
The endless conversation and social entanglements will bind you two. He may not see the Gemini woman’s dual nature as quite honest, and you will have to avoid mistaking his concrete reality as a lack of intellect.
With impulsive and idealistic traits, Aries tend to dream big, which means that they can be enterprising entrepreneurs, but many of their endeavors may end up being a flash in the pan. Often pioneers in their field, these fellows are always engaged in an intense race to be number one – to get their invention patented, to get the scoop, or to make their brilliant business idea the first of its kind. There is a sense of urgency to everything these Rams do, and their success is always defined by their primacy. If they aren’t the first ones to reach the highest peak of the mountain, what’s the point?
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.
To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what’s involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
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.
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.
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:
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.
Don’t be surprised, however, when their private persona reveals more vulnerability than you might have expected. Underneath that bombastic bravado, a childlike naiveté can cause them to end up with hurt feelings that are often masked by humor. It can be hard to keep up with their rapidfire wit, flair for grand gestures, and impressive libidos – so prepare to do a little stamina training in those areas if you have one of these fine fellows in your life!
See how you can find a Ram who’ll stick around. Whether you are partnering up for passion or practicality (or both), your sign may have some traits he finds irresistible. Read below to see how a girl with your zodiac sign gets along with a Ram man before you decide to lock horns.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At first, they may come across as selfish and self-centred people. But there does exist a generous side of these highly active individuals, well, it is a different thing that they show it to only those who they think are worthy of it. Aries men don’t spend their precious time whining about how the world has been unfair to them and things like that. And even if they do, they will quickly bounce back. It is their courage, enthusiasm, positivity and love for near and dear ones, which gives them immense strength to face the challenges of life. However, they tend to be outspoken, overconfident, and at times, quite insensitive also. Expecting them to listen to your woes endlessly and heal your wounds patiently may be too much to ask for.
An Aries man knows what he wants immediately, and goes after it with zero hesitation. This kind of man is often a leaper off of high cliffs, and not always a looker to see what lies down below. There’s a “me first!” mentality that can result in a sense of urgency in regards to ambition and initiative. This can make them natural leaders, ready to head up the vanguard.
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 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.
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.
When in love, these men can be possessed by a fleeting temper that can flare up unexpectedly. But they don’t tend to stay mad for long – unless you really cross them, in which case, you’re pretty much dead to them. That combustibility can implode a romance and create a tendency to burn bridges. Are you compatible with your Aries man? Find out here.
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.
This is a man who will appreciate sexy clothes and underwear, the bolder the better. If you’ve been looking for someone to model those impractical slinky outfits for, this is the guy! He enjoys being the pursuer, so once you’re looking suitably sexy for him, being demure, timid and shy will score major additional points.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When he falls in love, one way or another, you will know. There are two extremes of his behavior in this situation. As a conqueror and a warrior he will feel the need to fight for love, for the heart of the one he desires and will stop at nothing for this cause. This means he will be persistent and repetitive in his attempts to win the attention of the subject of his affection. The other extreme would be a lost Aries man, incapable of understanding his own emotions. This could make him distant, like he has lost the ability to speak, or even angry because of the inability to show how he feels. Either way his behavior will be very obvious, and you will not miss the signals even if you didn’t know him that well.
