Who doesn’t secretly love a bad boy? The Aries man is very good at being very bad, which makes him rather popular with the ladies. Some examples of this are Aries hell-raisers Marlon Brando, Russell Crowe, and Ewan McGregor. Passionate and playful, love is about conquest for the Aries man. Ruled by Mars, the god of war, he approaches love like a battle, and like most of the battles he selects to fight, the Aries man will usually win. His chosen weapons are a killer smile, flirtatious compliments, and that irresistible aura of danger that surrounds him.
He believes in ideal love and the perfect partner, and will wait until he finds it and them. When he discovers his ideal partner, he falls in love immediately and he won’t take no for an answer, no matter how unavailable that person is. The thrill of the chase is what fires the Ram up, and no challenge is ever insurmountable for the Aries man. In fact, the more difficult the trial, the greater his nostrils flare in anticipation. After all, the best victories are over an equally matched or better-equipped foe.
If you have an Aries man for a lover, watch out for fireworks in the bedroom! A sensual, hungry lover, he is demanding, with a high libido. It’s quite an adventure to be with an Arian. Erotic and impudent, the Ram will take you to new sexual heights. Just be sure that both of you can sustain the first initial brush with fire. An Aries’ passion, although brilliant, can burn too high, too fast, turning into ashes after a very short period. It isn’t hard to catch the attention of an Aries man – the real challenge is to hold on to this charging, bucking Ram of a man.
When you have caught him, however, you will find that beneath the commanding, brash appearance, the Aries man is surprisingly sensitive when in a committed relationship. Compromise comes quite easily to him, as long as both parties are giving an equal amount of leeway. Sparks will fly, as with all Fire signs, but this can serve to keep the relationship alive and kicking.
Perfect partners for Aries men are as strong and argumentative as he is, fighting his fire with their own, and are brave enough to stand up to him. He also needs someone who can understand his inner sensitivity, and who will support him in all the new endeavors he begins. For better or for worse, through hell and high water, the Aries man takes commitment and his vows seriously and will be a loyal and devoted partner.
He is generally considered most compatible with Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
Aries in Love
Going where no woman has gone before, Aries women are always seeking true love. She sometimes finds it, and when she does it is very difficult to withstand her mesmerizing charm. When you meet an Aries woman, the first thing to strike you is her sense of intensity and intrigue. She is a challenge, with hidden depths and complex thoughts. The Ram blossoms when she meets her perfect partner, becoming more sensual, understanding, and emotional. Everything becomes extreme, and life is sharpest and most colorful for her when she is in love. She loves to be stroked and caressed and needs lovers who will assure her that she is first and foremost in their life.
Although she comes across as strong, she is inwardly vulnerable. She loves high romance and the grand gesture, but also all the little caring ones in between. She does not like to be possessed, but occasional displays of possessiveness or jealousy can be much appreciated, as she considers these, if in healthy moderation, signs that her partners knows she is valuable. She is sometimes jealous, but the jealousy arises from insecurity, and she responds well and quickly to reassurance from her partners that dispel her fears.
If you are lucky enough to capture the attention of an Aries woman, keeping that attention will be the challenge if you are up to it. She often prefers partners who have exciting personalities because this woman is in no way a shrinking violet. An Aries woman is very capable of getting along in this world without you. If you don’t notice this on your own, she can tell you as much in no uncertain terms. She relates to all people as equals, yet she has a competitive streak as well. Her extravagant and romantic natures are intertwined. The partner who truly comes through for her will be made to feel like the most special person that walks the earth. She is direct, sometimes shockingly so, but has an approach that is extremely endearing.
Aries is ruled by fiery Mars, and is an active, positive, and assertive sign. Her appeal is direct, straightforward, and naive. Her main challenge is to learn about others’ needs.
When it comes to attraction, Aries’ secret weapon is positivity. Even the shyer Aries seem to have an inner confidence that you do really want her. She is quite sure that she can win you over, and there is an almost innocent aura about her that can be a huge turn-on. Innocent is probably not the word you’d use to describe her in general; but her confidence and enthusiasm radiate an appealingly direct, sincere, and simple personality that can be hard to resist. In a pinch, Aries will rarely come across as desperate or needy.
If cornered, her confidence that you’ll forgive her for any perceived wrongdoing usually saves the day. How can you disappoint, let alone turn down, a person who is so sure you couldn’t possibly think she’s anything less than perfect for you? She doesn’t apologize; she simply moves forward and expects you will too.
The old adage that “opposites attract” doesn’t seem to hold true for Aries, at least in the “strength of character” department. She is not one to fall for a sob story. She is attracted to a person with an obvious backbone and a large sense of adventure and fun, just like her. She is not known as the most compassionate person around–she tends to have a “get over yourself” attitude to people hung up on their problems. You might learn a little something from her, and that is that the present and future count much more than the past. Her motto may as well be: “make the most of what comes, and the least of what goes”.
Aries really does love the hunt and the chase. This doesn’t mean she will never settle down, but it does mean you have to do your share to keep things exciting. When she gets all fired up about something or someone, she is completely passionate and right there in the moment. If you are the object of her desire, you are greater than life–she lives and breathes you, at least for the time being. Whether this passion lasts or not is the question. Keep it exciting and it probably will.
Her sincere, straight-to-the-point, and direct approach is hard to resist. If you are the one who she is passionate about right now, there will be no mistake in your mind that she wants you. Caught up in her passion and enthusiasm, she trusts you completely. She’s also sure that she’s right for you.
In love, she is not a typical romantic. She doesn’t require wining and dining. She definitely needs attention, but if you make yourself too available or too easy, she could begin to feel stifled.
Relationships & the Aries Man
The Aries man is excited by new places and new friends. He enjoys meeting people, engaging in quick-witted dialogue, and offering up the occasional tall tale.
As excellent a conversationalist as the Aries man can be, he may be found lacking in discretion and tact. Don’t ask this man a question if you’re not ready for an honest answer because he tells it like it is, without regard for its consequence. This trait has strangers finding him somewhat aggressive and maybe even a little bossy.
When it comes to advice, the Aries man is quick to give, but not so eager to receive. Aries men love to be “in the know”, and the first to know as well!
Relationships & the Aries Woman
The chase, the hunt, that heart-thumping adrenaline rush from claiming her prize – these are the things that Aries women love. She will take risks in love, but in a relationship she is also very much a give-and-take partner. Sparks usually fly, and often, when an Arian woman is involved, but this merely adds to the glint of excitement in her eye. Can’t stand the heat? Then move away from the fire. Aries women need a lover who can stimulate them and can be fiercely loyal lovers. Her occasional temper flare ups are usually hot and quick, and will be followed by the very enjoyable task of making up. The Aries woman’s perfect partner is someone who can juggle knives and fire, drive fast cars, and, most importantly of all, is never dull.
Romance & the Aries Man
You’ll not find a partner as passionate as the Aries man. Nor will you find one quite so adventurous and ready to test uncharted waters. A word of caution to prospective partners: the Aries man needs someone to match his romantic enthusiasm and will become bored if he’s not kept on his toes.
The man has a unique capacity to handle grief more quickly than others and this ability to move on from a failed relationship can make him seem aloof or even callous to some.
The Aries man enjoys the chase, so don’t make it too easy for him.
Romance & the Aries Woman
The Ram is really a sheep in tiger hide when it comes to sex. She loves the hunt and is a strong, physical lover. No experiment is too outlandish for the Aries woman – after all you have to try it before you knock it! Similarly, no location is out of bounds for her – beach, pool, car, park bench, or dentist chair – the Aries woman probably has experienced them all. Their lovers must be able to satisfy them, or Arian women will move, and quickly too. Eroticism is an important and mental connection for her, and she is a passionate and demanding lover.
An Aries woman is often one of the few who effectively separate love and sex. She could find it easier to express herself sexually than intimately, and she tends to move slower if love is involved. Although she can be a sometimes aggressive force sexually, she often wants her partner to mirror her own passion and openness. Experimental and open minded, she will push the envelope to feel pleasure and will expect the same from her partner. An Aries woman believes no advance is taboo or unwanted if it is between two people who love each other.
Sexually, Aries is very physical. Sex is almost like a sport for her, particularly if she has Moon and/or Mars in Aries. Aries rather naturally falls into a dominant or at least leading role, but she will do whatever comes naturally at the moment, so you can never really tie her down to a particular category. Her passion is not of the brooding, sensual variety. It is more of a “right here, right now” passion that might better be described as enthusiasm. She loves adventurous sex, whether it’s trying something new or doing it somewhere, anywhere, other than a bed.
