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.
The introverted nature of the Aquarius man nonetheless, is shed for the sake of teamwork and camaraderie. A wonderful and efficient team player, the Aquarian male can use a lot of his human relations prowess to get the best results from the team. Open to challenges and very willing to take things in stride as they occur, he can be depended on to bring out the best in everyone in the team.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
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.”
An Aquarius man is a very unique creature to say the least. I’ve dated a few of them and I can honestly say I’ve never been bored. Their ability to talk and hold a conversation can entertain me for hours. They’re just so fascinating! I could be in an empty room with them with nothing to do, and yet I would never be bored if an Aquarius man was with me. If you want someone who’s boring and predictable, this is definitely not the sign for you. You may think you know the Aquarius man, but then he turns around and does a complete 180 and you have to stop and question everything you thought you knew about him. You just never know what’s he going to do next and that’s part of the fun. You also never know what’s he going to say next either. One minute you’re talking about the global warming, next he’s wondering what you watched on TV last night. He will definitely keep you on your toes but you’ll love every minute of it because when’s the last time you knew a guy like this? Probably never..
As an arbiter of social change and champion for mankind, Aquarius is like a light shining in the darkness – provided he doesn’t get too lost in his own unique perspective and end up lost in a fervor of rhetoric like a 1960s cult leader who’s alienated his flock.
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.
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.
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.

Books, magazines, comics, and beautiful art prints always captivate his cerebral intellect – and the more oddball, the better. If you are willing to dig through stacks of tomes at an antiquarian bookseller to find the obscure medical textbook of his dreams or a rare printing of some controversial political pamphlet, you will see this air sign’s eyes light up. He loves to ponder, to wonder, and to let his mind wander – so give him something that will hold his focus.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
