He’s inquisitive, he’s ambitious, he’s energetic. He is a man who likes to know what’s on your mind, but is not one to disclose what’s on his. Secretive to the core, the Aquarian male is a strange combination of sociability and reserve.
He has a lazy charm about him. Casual and laid-back, he takes life one day at a time. But his casual attitude stops when it comes to ambition. Goal oriented and focused, nothing will stop an Aquarian from realising his dreams.
And when it comes to dating Aquarian men, girls can be sure of having a ball. The water bearer will impress the babes’ with his capers and comic timing. Every time you meet an Aquarian guy, you are sure to have a good laugh. And the spectrum of emotions that he displays like flashes of lightening will keep you intrigued.
How to identify an Aquarian man in a crowd?
There are two distinct types of men under this zodiac sign. The Aquarian man falling under the first 40 per cent is cynical, opinionated and eccentric and shows strong traits of aggressiveness. He is loud and boisterous, and likes to strut his stuff- showing off what he bought, where he went and the like. Most of this kind are usually full of Me, Myself, I, and rarely see beyond themselves.
The Aquarian man who falls under the balance 60 per cent is the passive type and exactly the opposite. He knows the power of underplay. Never loud or brash, he will not brag about his material gains even if it is a Ferrari he bought the previous day.
What are the key features of his personality?
Most Aquarian men I have met are full of energy. They are propelled into activities by an inner force. And this is true not withstanding their casual attitude.
I have also observed that most Aquarian men are likeable people. They mingle in a crowd and make friends easily. In fact, an Aquarian man is most happy in company. He can connect with people of any age, gender or background easily. Also, Aquarians have the unique trait of chatting up women and end up showing more interest in them in a social gathering. His inherent secrecy will make these traits hard to spot the first time, but if you follow the pattern over a few times, it may become obvious.
Is there more to his persona?
Aquarian men, like their female counterparts, make great show of self-confidence. They like to go on a talking spree about things they know nothing about. They project the image of being ‘master of all trades’ while in reality they are neither masters nor jacks. They cover up lack of knowledge and confidence by excessively exercising their tongues.
Another thing they hate is being tied down. Pushing him to do what he is not ready to do yet is a sure way of losing him. He dislikes being controlled and would do as he pleases, whatever the repercussions. He will take up responsibilities only as and when they suit him. If duties are imposed on him, he will find a way to wriggle out of them or throw tantrums to show his disapproval. This trait makes him a difficult child too. No parent would know how to teach responsible behaviour to an Aquarian boy. So who can? Only life can be his teacher…and trust me he can’t have a better one!
How is he when in love?
Very, very slow and calculative…that is not to say he is manipulative, but he likes to make his moves stealthily and with caution. Don’t take this as shyness or quietness. This man is only analysing you before making his move.
As a lover, he is also full of surprises. He will woo you with the most unthinkable ideas and lure you into the most daring terrains. Be sure you fall in step with his ideas of honesty and commitment. Otherwise, his romance will take an instant U turn. Only if he is totally in love will he open up and lay bare his secrets. While in a relationship with him, you should have the tact to draw him out of his reserve and see the man he truly is…underneath his strong facade of friendliness.
Another quality he appreciates in his love interest is the ability to understand him and give him the warmth and care he requires. He looks for a friend in his partner, someone with whom he can share anything and everything.
How is an Aquarius man on the following aspects?
An Aquarian man tends to have sunken eyes and rather blunt features. Most Aquarians have unconventional looks. In the case of dressing up, an Aquarian male can swing to two extremes.He will either dress up in the most fashionable do or go for a totally eccentric style of dressing. That’s because he dislikes being just another face in the crowd; he makes sure his clothes make a statement and his appearance is noticeable. Another pet peeve I have marked in Aquarian men is their affinity to colours. They are likely to wear their favourite, it could be a chequered shirt and blue jeans or the most complimented colours much too often.
For the conventional Aquarian, the sky’s the limit. His ambition knows no bounds. He is over ambitious, to put it simply and doesn’t know where and when to stop. He is relentless in his drive to achieve and succeed.
The other kind is ambitious too but can be content with what he has. He can strike a balance between his work and personal life and will devote as much time at achieving things as he would for himself and his family.
I find Aquarian men most interesting on this aspect. They either demand respect or command it. One way or the other they think it’s their birthright. The passive kind may like to earn his respect; the conventional kind usually takes it for granted. However,both are terribly egoistic. Although the mellower Aquarian may show humility at times, his ego is not far from the surface.
While dating him you should…
…treat your date like a mystery novel. The more you intrigue him, the more he will be enticed. Nothing delights an Aquarian guy more than unravelling mysteries or unlocking deep secrets. He will probe into your innermost thoughts and desires making you feel like you are the one for him. But hold on… that’s just his nature. He would do that to any other person. Whether the relation between you two would reach the next level depends on how long you are able to sustain his interest.
Another word of advice…this man is not a conventional lover. So what should be expected of him? Reciting poems? No! Expensive gifts? No! Romantic escapades, maybe? No! The answer is a good time. He can be funny, entertaining, romantic and protective in his own unique way. He can make you smile, laugh, blush and say yes to all his ideas…that’s the power of his presence. You will be floored by the innovative ways he thinks of wooing you and the unconventional ideas he follows to prove his love.
The easy going Aquarian is everybody’s friend. He stresses a lot on building networks and being friendly with everyone, but when it comes to compatibility, one has to probe deeper into his psyche. What exactly does it mean for Aquarian men and women from other signs? Let’s find out.
Aquarian man and…
Aries woman: 7/10. Between these two it is a wait and watch game. While each may admire the other’s positive attributes, there would be small differences to contend with. But with a little bit of patience, they can hit a home run.
Taurus woman: 6/10. This relationship is somewhere in the middle. He can give her a lesson or two on how to have some fun and she can mellow down his bizarre nature. If they go slow on their innate obstinacy (both have plenty of it), theirs’ can be a good combination.
Gemini woman: 8/10. Adventurous, spontaneous and non-conformist. Who am I talking about? Both. They share each other’s prominent traits and therefore this relationship is likely to bring the house down!
Cancer woman: 3/10. A risky affair! Both are placed on opposite poles. He is too friendly and easy going to fit into her intense and serious nature. And she is too emotionally dependent to meet his intellectual requirements.
Leo woman: 7/10. This relationship can be anything but boring. Filled with his unconventional behaviour and her powerful charm, their union can bring in a lot of crazy moments. But for a fruitful relationship, they would need to work hard on understanding each other.
Virgo woman: 6/10. Initial attraction and a lot of misunderstanding later—that’s the briefest description of a Virgo-Aquarian combination. Things can work out between the two if they quit trying to improve the other.
Libra woman: 9/10. A match well made! There is an evenness of attributes in this case—his adventurous spirit is balanced by her practicality and her intellectual mind is balanced by his impulsiveness.
Scorpio woman: 7.5/10. A little hard work is required here. Their emotional disparity will madden them and ‘might’ make it difficult for them to tolerate each other. A long term relationship may wear them thin and suck out all the charm from their stimulating conversations. If the Scorpio is or can be submissive and graceful throughout, this combo could really work well.
Sagittarius woman: 9.5/10: This one’s the icing on the cake! Filled with passion, romance and limited emotions, this relationship will work wonders for both. The independent spirit in both will only bring them closer.
Capricorn woman: 7/10: A sustainable relationship that’s more likely to succeed as friendship rather than a romantic affair. If these too are thrown in together over a long drawn affair, they are likely to get tired of each other.
Aquarius woman: 8/10: With his Aquarian counterpart, his relationship will be totally without ardor or depth. Since both live life on the surface, they will miss out on the deeper meaning of love and romance. Although their chemistry will be good, long term compatibility is a question mark.
Pisces woman: 5/10: Both are too dissimilar to walk a common path. His love for adventure and fun-filled lifestyle will not go well with her serious and spiritual bent of mind. He in turn will find her too clingy and emotionally needy.
