Love, like everything else, is a light-hearted game to the Aquarius man. He will approach relationships playfully, unleashing his flirty charm in small, calculated doses.
You won’t often hear an Aquarius man say “I love you,” at least not in the traditional way or at the appropriate moment. His nonconformist nature will not let him express himself in the usual, conventional way. Flowers, chocolates, dinner and a movie – such normal dating gestures are anathema to him. Instead, be prepared for cloud writing in the sky, surprise trips to a tea picking Indian village, and a cancer research centre named in your honour. He’s that kind of man. He loves deeply and sincerely, and would give his life for his other half in an instant. He just doesn’t really buy into all the Hallmark sentimentality. While the more retiring types of Aquarians may not be as grandiose in their gift giving, their gifts will always be unconventional and totally unique in some way.
Ruled by Air, the way to the cerebral Aquarian’s libido is through his mind. Excite, enchant, and enthrall him with sexy little mind games and wait for the inferno of passion between the sheets that will come later. Experimental and audacious, the more outgoing of Aquarius men are often the first to suggest joining the mile high club, or dare you to skinny dip with them on a moonlit night. Nothing is too provocative or challenging to him in the bedroom, or more often, out of it. The quieter types will nevertheless surprise you at every turn, once you’ve earned their trust. It can be difficult to get close to these types of Aquarian men, but once you do, you’ll be glad you persisted.
A will-o-wisp of a lover, it can be difficult to pin an Aquarius man down to commitment, but once he’s found the right woman, he is quite happy to give up being blown where the wind takes him, and settle down. The Aquarius man is attracted to intelligence, so his partner has to be someone who understands his grand designs for life and humanity. He must be assured that his treasured independence isn’t under threat; or else he will disappear like a gust of wind. If he is already committed, he is not one to break free quickly, but signs of his discontent will be everywhere.
Absolute reciprocal freedom works best for a partnership with an Aquarius man, which is not to say that every Aquarian seeks an open relationship. The Water Bearer simply wants his own space and freedom of movement, and is quite happy to share a life together with a smart, self-reliant partner who supports his need for autonomy.
He is generally considered most compatible with Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aries.
Aquarius in Love
On a mental level, many things are a game to the Aquarius woman, and nothing has bigger stakes than the game of love. Playing at her own leisure, she will place her pieces precisely, never skipping a beat or making a false move. Love is fun for an Aquarius woman, and she will take the part of many roles for her lover, just to keep things interesting. This light hearted approach does not mean an Aquarius woman falls in love easily. On the contrary, it takes some time for her to be able to connect emotionally and to trust someone else.
“Tough to love” can be used to describe some Aquarius women. Her partner must be mentally prepared to meet the challenges posed by this strong willed, independent woman. To her, communication is the key to a successful romance and she may rationalize every emotion. But, as friendly as she is, getting through to her heart takes some time.
Once the Aquarius woman is touched by what she feels is true love, however, she will give herself to her partner freely and completely. Original and unpredictable, this woman may provide sources of pleasure that her partner never knew existed.
Independence is something the Aquarius woman values. She seeks it from a partner and she gives it freely as well. There’s always a part of her that she keeps separate from others. This is an intellectual air sign even though it’s referred to as a water bearer. Her ideal match has a lot of brains and understands her diversity.
Relationships & the Aquarius Man
A genuinely nice person, the Aquarius man has many friends or acquaintances, but only a small circle of really close ones. Although he’s a self-assured and outgoing individual, he does have a tendency to emotionally distance himself from those around him, and this makes the Aquarius man an unpredictable and confusing companion at times.
Despite what may appear to be negative traits for a sound relationship, the Aquarius man is a loyal individual who highly values a true friendship.
Relationships & the Aquarius Woman
Space and freedom are what an Aquarius woman needs most in a relationship. Give her room to breathe and blow away any expectation of a traditional house frau, content to leave your slippers out by the fireplace, put the children to bed, and cook your dinner. The Aquarius woman is more likely to have left the children out by the fireplace, put your meal to bed and cooked your slippers for dinner. She’s a little bit of a rebel, and her perfect relationship is with someone who is happy to overturn the status quo with her. Ideal partners are generally considered to be Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aries.
Romance & the Aquarius Man
To the Aquarius man, a strong mental attraction shares an equal with or greater importance than any physical appeal. Characteristically unemotional, or at least not obviously so, this man needs communication to be intimate in his relationships, but don’t count him out as an arduous lover. He is an Aquarius – unpredictable and innovative – so you can expect the bedroom antics to be full of new and exciting pleasures.
Enjoying long talks, moonlit walks, and holding hands, the Aquarius gentleman is a romantic who’s ready to give unconditional love to the right partner.
Romance & the Aquarius Woman
Sex is partly a cerebral affair for an Aquarius woman. What she seeks in the bedroom is an Einstein who can dazzle her with a brilliant mind, but also hopefully, an Einstein with a better haircut and possibly more of a tan. Aquarians tend to be envelope pushers, always experimenting, never inhibited. They are risk takers both in and out of bed, so don’t be overly surprised if an Aquarius woman suggests an al fresco rendezvous somewhere public – the frisson from breaking the rules is exactly what turns this sign on.
