Dating an Aries Man: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly

Have an Aries man you can’t get off your mind? Want to learn more about what makes these men tick? You’ve come to the right place! In this article, you will learn all there is to know about Aries men and more. By the end of this read, you will feel confident with any Aries man that comes your way.

Before we get into it, let’s learn about the basics of the sign Aries.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. Those represented by this sign, are born between March 20th and April 19th of any given year. Being the first of the twelve signs, Aries is often coined as “the baby” of the zodiac. This is mostly evident due to their child-like and adventurous spirit!

Aries is also a Cardinal sign, meaning they are always on the hunt for the newness in life. Signs that are represented by Cardinal energy need new beginnings to express themselves best. Cardinal energy invokes a desire to initiate and lead. They thrive on jumping into new situations to keep their spirit’s high! Cardinal energy is heightened even more for Aries, since they are also represented by the element of Fire.

The element of Fire is kept alive by passion and willpower. Creativity, leadership, and strength is very important to their mission in life. Without these things, they start to feel that intense flame fading away. However, sometimes their intense desire to pursue their passions can cause them to burn out. Learning to pace themselves will become their greatest asset in life!

Now that we have covered the basics, let’s learn more about who the Aries man really is.

Examining the Aries Man: His Behaviour, Tendencies, & Trust Patterns

With Aries men, what you see is what you get. These men typically don’t put a show on for others, as they are one of the most straightforward signs of the zodiac. Sometimes, even to a fault!

Ruled by the planet Mars, Aries men embody much of the planet’s energy. Mars influences them to be upfront, dominant, and brave. Aries men aren’t the type to back down from confrontation or a good challenge. They like to come out on top and be the number one in any situation. For better or for worse! That being said, their competitive edge often leaves them with many admirers. They have a knack for impressing others around them due to their natural charm and confidence.

However, in situations that require more softness and patience, their innate Mars energy can work against them. They can have a hard time seeing things from other people’s perspectives, leading them to grow frustrated when others don’t seem to understand theirs. This doesn’t mean they aren’t kind or loving people, it just means that the softer things in life aren’t their strong suit. They typically like to keep things light and fun. This, however, shouldn’t be mistaken as a lack of passion. It’s just they would rather channel that towards their goals and pursuit for new experiences.

These men are persistent with the things that they truly care about. When things become boring and stagnant, they can get lazy and lose interest. They need to be in roles where others look to them as a source of leadership and strength. This is why they thrive working for themselves and/or in environments that require a lot of persistence. Seeing new things and taking on new projects is what keeps Aries men going. These men like to be challenged and are motivated by obstacles.

Additionally, the Cardinal energy that influences them creates the ultimate opportunist. They can sniff out a good opportunity from a mile away and will relentlessly pursue it until it’s theirs. Then, they might lose interest and move onto the next one. This is only because they haven’t found the “one” that they will never get bored of. It’s not that Aries’ men can’t stick to one thing, it’s just that they refuse to settle for the things that don’t keep their internal flame burning.

When it comes to trust, these men tend to observe the actions of others rather than their words. If your behavior seems authentic, they typically have no problem placing their trust in you. Aries men aren’t known for being the suspicious type. Aries men will trust you fully unless you give them a reason not to. Then they will outright cut the connection off, as they don’t like to entertain things that seem off. They can be rather impulsive when making decisions about others and can make decisions without needing much thought. If it doesn’t seem worth it to them, they just won’t bother.

Aries Men When they Fall in Love: Dating & Sex

The way to know if an Aries man has fallen in love with you, is by observing his level of persistence. Like mentioned earlier, Aries men have a hard time hiding how they really feel. It’s written all over their behaviour. They may say one thing, but their actions are always a dead giveaway. If an Aries man won’t leave you alone (in a consensual and respectful way, of course), he has fallen in love with you.

You won’t need to chase or pursue an Aries man when he has fallen in love. In fact, pursuing you will be his favourite thing to do! You can expect him to initiate the dates and the majority of contact. He will call, text, and show up at your door. Aries men aren’t shy with their admiration towards their loved ones. Once they have claimed you as their golden prize, nothing gets in their way. They will have a giddy and excited energy around you. It will seem like they are getting a boost of energy just by being in your presence. Some Aries men are more affectionate than others, but for the most part, they are very direct. Whether it be physically or verbally, they will show you how they feel in the moment.

These men are the “in the moment” type, so be ready for last minute dates! They love to keep things interesting with sudden plans and activities. They love to get physical! Anything that involves physical activity will win them over like, hiking, biking, swimming, rock climbing, road tripping, you name it! Aries men are very fun to date. You won’t get bored with them, but the challenge is keeping up with their energy. Sometimes it can seem like their energy tank never runs out, and because of this, Aries men prefer to take the lead. The upside is that you won’t be burdened by having to make decisions all the time!

Moreover, when it comes to sex, Aries men are very passionate and physical. They express themselves best physically. This is especially true since their ruling sign, Mars, represents sex after all. Sexual expression and affection should come natural to Aries men. They have a primordial way of navigating sexual relationships, and can appreciate the authenticity expressed during sex. This is another area of the relationship that you won’t have to initiate or lead in. They prefer to take charge and woo you with their passionate approach to sex. Sexual chemistry is very important to Aries men, but they aren’t too picky about the way things unfold. They like to live in the moment and allow things to happen spontaneously. This is something that really turns them on. The more unpredictable, the more exciting and unforgettable the experience for your Aries man!
