Aries is the Sun sign of a person born in between 20th March and 20th April. Bearing the sign of the Ram, a man with this Zodiac sign is mostly strong, independent and masculine. Here are a few nuggets of wisdom on what it is like to date an Aries guy and how to keep him interested.
A man born into the sign of Aries is usually frank about what he feels and thinks. If you are in a relationship with this guy and you surprise him with a fantastic outfit on a date, his appreciation is likely to be spontaneous and genuine. You don’t have to worry about what he may be really thinking or if his compliments have an ulterior motive. At the same time, his honest appraisal when you are having a bad hair day or have goofed up in the kitchen can leave you bristling and wishing that he had more tact. But then that is the Aries guy for you, emotional and outspoken.
Dates with an Aries guy are unlikely to be tame affairs. This is a person brimming with energy and if he is totally into you, he will make sure that you have the time of your life in his company. For a date he may just whisk you away to a game of your favorite baseball team and then head out to a Mediterranean restaurant where they have a live band of Syrian drummers. Finally he may decide to round off the evening by taking you to a tango night for couples. At times you may find yourself too rushed and all the action overwhelming, but an Aries guy needs external stimulation or he quickly becomes bored.
If you find the guy at the next table grumbling while filing forms in a bank, chances are that he is an Aries. Too many rules and restrictions irritate him since he likes to live life on his own terms. When dating such a guy, take care not to take him to a place, like a high-security museum or art gallery, which have too many dos and don’ts. The flip side of this personality trait is of course that he is spontaneous and may jump over a private fence just to bring you that spray of flowers which you said were your favorite.
Flirting with an Aries guy can be exciting but take care not to make it a protracted affair. Once you have caught his attention, make sure you go ahead with your moves promptly, especially if you are seriously considering a relationship with this guy. This is because an Aries guy gets impatient when things are moving slowly and is likely to lose interest in too long a chase. Before you know it, you may have lost a great guy!
When dating an Aries guy, it is necessary to allow him ample chances of external stimulation. This is a man who likes action and wishes to be in the thick of things. So think twice before interfering with his bi-weekly game of football or when he disappears on white-water rafting trips for days on end. If you prevent him from taking his physical highs, he is likely to become listless and uninterested in anything that you may offer in exchange. However while your Aries boyfriend may relish the idea of camping on a windy day, don’t expect to find in him a faithful jogging partner. Aries guys usually work in bursts of energy and any routine physical activity can bore them quickly.
Aries men like to put forward their own point of view with great relish. This can make them seem unnecessarily argumentative and sometimes even crude and outrageous. So when you seem to be heading on treacherous grounds with your Aries date try to avoid controversial topics or those you know are bound to raise his hackles. Such men are likely to believe that they are experts on every subject under the sun and always know where the best truffles can be found in your city or the exact latitude and longitude of the island of Zanzibar. Arguing with such men, especially when they are not seeing straight after a couple of drinks, is a waste of time and you would do better not to wade into those waters at all.
Yet another point to consider when dating Aries men is not to tamper with their ego. Once they feel that their self-respect has been wounded, they can be quick to anger. So if you don’t want you Aries boyfriend seething with rage, refrain from putting him down before his friends and family or pointing out that his hair looks weird in his high school yearbook photo. Once his ego is needled, an Aries guy can quickly get into a temper, slam the door in your face and even do something rash.
If you want to have a fulfilling relationship with your Aries boyfriend, make sure that it has enough variety to keep him hooked. Aries men love to do new things and try out new tasks. So ask your guy if he is game for an overnight drive to watch the sun rising on the Rockies. Surprise him with a new skill that you have picked up like the salsa and see if he is willing to try it out with you. As a partner, you need to reveal your intelligence and ambition besides knowing how to maintain his interest in the long run.
An energetic and emotional relationship is what you are looking at if you are seriously dating an Aries guy. While he may hook you with his open charm and keep you on your toes with his brisk lifestyle, he may, at times, get on your nerves with his impatience and hot-headedness. However, the one thing you can be sure of is that dating such a guy will never lead to a moment of dullness and even a committed relationship can be full of that variety and spontaneity which is sadly lacking in many long-term pairings.
