Secrets of Dating an Aries Man

So you've been swept off your feet by a typical, swashbuckling Aries male, have you? Well, here's an honest window into what you can expect to experience with many Aries men. This is a bit tongue in cheek but it's also based on fact -- and the fact is, Aries men (and women -- of which I happen to be one) are loaded with faults. We are not very good at relationships because we're so slow-going when it comes to learning how to interact with people who are not like us. If you're an Aries woman looking to date an Aries man, you've already got a good idea of what's in store if you simply look in the mirror. You'll either have a better chance than most at succeeding, or a snowball's chance in hell, cos there ain't no middle ground with an Aries!

The Aries Male Character

Aries men are almost always outgoing and playful, brave and courageous, macho and masculine. That should actually be followed up with a "in their own mind" but I'll be kind and forgo it. *cough* So, anyway. The one thing they've all got oodles of is passion and energy. Unfortunately, they don't often learn to channel this energy productively until late 20s and early 30s, so if you're involved with a youngish one, be prepared for one of three basic types: The Player, Mr. Jealous, or The Little Boy.

The Basics:

  • How to flirt with an Aries man: Breathe
  • How to tick an Aries man off: Ignore him for more than 3 seconds

  • How to scare an Aries man off: Try to hold him accountable

  • How to get an Aries man back: Boot licking, boot licking and more boot licking

The Aries Player

The Player can show up in any star sign, but Aries guy is so charming that more women will fall for him than not. All (straight) women are naturally drawn to masculinity and he's got plenty of it; and he's keen to show it off. He's a braggart and sees no problem with telling you his pluses because, hey, it's the truth. And he's doing womankind a service by, er, servicing as many as he possibly can because he knows how hard it is to find a real man these days. So he won't feel the slightest bit guilty about spreading the love -- although, to be fair, he's not the malicious type; he's doing it for the highest good and sees himself as merely a conduit.

Mr. Jealous

Mr. Jealous got a little too much testosterone and not enough self-confidence when he emerged from his mama's womb, and he's still not quite balanced when it comes to dating. He gets angry if you walk down to the Circle K to get a pack of smokes without him, and he gets angry if you have guy friends, or even relatives, over to the trailer when he's not around. He works like a slave for you and wants you to worship him for it when he gets home. Trouble is, even if you do everything exactly the way he wants you to do it, it ain't going to be good enough and he might get touchy with you. In a bad way.

The Little Boy

This Aries guy has never grown up and probably never will. He's so good at getting his mama or other women to do everything for him that he simply bats his eyelashes, flashes a smile and waits for everyone to fulfill his needs upon request. He may give back once in a while, but the thought really doesn't occur to him very often. Not in a jerky kind of way, but rather in the way you'd expect a young kid to be self-absorbed and very me, me, me.
