February might be short, but the Aquarius man is mighty! This air sign runs from January 21 to February 21, and is a free-spirit, future-thinker, and fun.
With those lovely qualities come others, so let’s get to the bottom of this open minded guy.
Aquarius Man Traits
1. Aquarius men are one-sided socializers
You know you’re dating an Aquarius man when you can’t go anywhere without someone saying hi to him.
Everyone knows this guy because he’s warm and friendly. But do they really know him? Chances are, probably not. That’s because this water sign is what we call a one-sided socializer.
What does that mean? The Aquarius male is great at asking questions because he cares about others. Depending on your sign, you may hate or love this about him.
He deflects most personal questions aimed at him because he likes to stay private. That’s the mystery of this zodiac sign. He’s private, yet open. Some would say he’s like an onion with lots of layers, and most people only get to know the top layer.
If you’re the lucky one who gets to know them all, you can be sure you ARE and will stay in his trusted inner circle. It can take a long time for an Aquarius man to open up, but once they do, they are loyal and loving friends or partners.
2. Lots of ideas, little direction
Aquarius males are idea men. They love coming up with off-the-wall visions and concepts, but they don’t love executing. One day, your man has decided to write a novel, and the next, he’s learning how to play guitar.
His head is bouncing all over the place with new ideas to take on, but sometimes, it gets crowded. But when he grabs onto an idea, nothing will hold him back from finishing his project. This is especially true if it will make the world better for himself and others.
3. Aquarian men are funny
If you like to laugh, you’re in luck! The Aquarius sign is known for having a great sense of humor — sometimes to the point of absurdity. We can’t tell you exactly what his sense of humor is like, but we can guarantee that his jokes won’t disappoint! He is one of the funniest sun signs of the zodiac!
4. To the Aquarius man, originality is everything
Some people like rules, and others like breaking them. The Aquarius man isn’t on one extreme or the other… but he leans closer to the rule-breaker category.
They like being their own person and value people that are unique. They don’t like doing things because society says so. You’ll see this in a lot of areas of their life. For example, they won’t wear trendy clothes. Instead, they’ll wear something to express themselves.
His friends are super unique (and you are probably even more so!)
In fact, most Aquarius men like to surround themselves with people who are more “out there” than they perceive themselves to be.
5. The Aquarius man and money
He isn’t a hoarder, but he definitely holds onto more stuff than the average Joe. And because he’s always coming up with big ideas and doing new things, his possessions are usually associated with these hobbies.
On the flip side, he isn’t a neat freak, but he prefers to keep his things organized (at least in his mind).
6. Aquarius guys are humanitarians
One of the best traits of Aquarius men are their humanitarian tendencies. They like the idea of solving the world’s problems… be it helping the community or volunteering in a developing country. Often, this side of his personality becomes his profession and passion. That’s why you’ll see a lot of these guys working in a unique job and being devoted to it.
Dating an Aquarius male? If so, you may be wondering, “Will this work out?” Since these men are so unique, it can be a challenge to pin them down!
The first step of dating an Aquarian man is deciding whether you’re up for the challenge! And we’re not saying this lightly. Challenge may be a scary word, but it comes with so many great things.
That said, here’s what you need to know about being with this sign.
Dating an Aquarius Man
In love with an Aquarius man? Wondering what to expect?
Overall, your relationship will be about experiences. According to his natal chart, he thrives when trying new things, and cherishes exploration with you more than he treasures gifts.
He is energetic, full of life, and sharp. He’s not looking for a patterned life. Instead, he wants a little edge and spunk; he dares to be bold with his life and his decisions.
Does that sound exciting to you, or does it overwhelm you? As long as you’re ready for a fast-paced, unpredictable life with your man, you should be golden.
Aquarius compatibility: best matches is Sagittarius.
1. They like spontaneity
Aquarius guys like to keep things spontaneous, but that doesn’t mean your relationship will be unstable. In fact, he’s a loyal guy, and that can be seen in the way he treats his friends, family, and you.
Speaking of friends, the Aquarian male loves quality time with his buds. He may seem to be prioritizing his friends over you, but he’s not. He just likes to mingle with all kinds of people. (That’s why Aquarians are often called social butterflies.)
2. Aquarius men can be unpredictable
One day, he’s ready to settle down and buy a house, and the next, he wants to travel the world in a van. So, if you need stability, you may have a tough time in a relationship with this guy.
3. He won’t commit right away
This non-committal trait goes hand in hand with his unpredictable nature. Aquarius males don’t love the thought of locking in on something, so a commitment may take longer than you’d like.
4. His independence will scare you at first
Aquarian men are independent and self-sufficient (think cats), so he won’t be waiting at the door for you to come home. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care. The way he shows you he cares will be mellow and laid back.
5. He’ll be full of energy
He grows restless quickly and has a ton of energy. He’s not the kind of guy that wants to come home, curl up on the couch, and call it a night. Instead, he likes to be out doing things, or hanging out with family and friends. But don’t worry, he’ll love having you along, he just doesn’t want to be attached at the hip.
6. Aquarius men need riveting conversation
At the start of your relationship, you’ll want to understand how much he values ideas. Aquarius guys are “idea men.” So, don’t be surprised if he comes to you with a grand idea for a fun date or vacation. You don’t have to go along with his plans, but you may have a problem if you’re not into spontaneity.
This is a two-way street, of course, so his ideas will benefit you, too. He’s always problem solving and coming up with fun ideas for your relationship. One thing is for sure: you won’t grow bored in a relationship with him!
7. He needs mental stimulation
Because he’s super smart, you should jump into a riveting conversation that will allow you to exchange views. Then, as you ease into a relationship, don’t let anything become mundane. Keep the philosophical discussions flowing, and you’ll have a happy man.
8. He’ll be honest and loyal
Another perk of being in a relationship with an Aquarius male? He’s honest and loyal. Sure, he may be slow to warm up to the idea of a relationship, but once he falls in love, he commits to you.
On the flip side, if you’re looking for a hopeless romantic, Aquarius isn’t your guy. He’s not a lovey-dovey partner, though he is supportive, caring, and thoughtful. You’ll always be able to count on him, and he’ll want to count on you, too.
Are You Ready for an Aquarius Man?
We’ve been doing a lot of focusing on him, but now it’s time to turn it over to you. Now that you know his ins and outs, do you think you can keep up with this sun sign?
Depending on your zodiac sign, your personality traits, and what you’re looking for in a relationship, he could be a perfect match or a flop.
So, think about your relationship priorities, because he won’t spend time doing this. Instead, he’ll feel the situation out; if he likes you, he will keep being spunky and unpredictable… His Aquarius sign makes him a whirlwind — an exciting, free-spirited sign that can be hard to understand at first — but this man is worth getting to know.
And when it’s time for you to decide whether you like him or not, you’ll want to call the shots quick to see if a commitment will happen.
We’ve covered the top traits of the Aquarius man. The most important thing to know about him (whether he’s your dad or boyfriend) is that he cares, but shows it in a unique way. He will always care about the “big picture.” And as long as he’s able to do his own thing and be his own person, he’ll be content.
