Understanding an Aries man
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it represents the element of fire. If you are dating an Aries man, then it is surely going to be a hell of a ride but be assured to be protected and provided for, with him. You may be wondering why he may not be as romantic or artistic as you wished your prince charming to be, but if you expect things which he may not innately be able to convince himself of, then you are asking for trouble. Below are a few brutal truths of dating an Aries man which will help you understand him better and therefore make your relationship stronger and more comforting for both.
1. He’s a rebel
Have you ever wondered why he is so aggressive? Well, Aries men are organic rebels. They always fight for their right, justice and make sure things are perfect. If you are out on a date and you see someone who is staring at you, he may go up to that person and confront him. They are not the kinds who can let go easily and will ensure that they win in any battle. For them love, work, life are all battlefields and their plan of action is often the one which involves the display of their power and strength. While this may be attractive to some women, it may also get frustrating to see your man get aggressive on things which you may think are worth ignoring. In such a scenario, understand him and allow him to show his power, whether intellectual or physical.
2. He will rarely make the first move
If you are expecting him to make the first move, then forget it! Aries men are superlatively egoistic and anything that makes them look smaller is a big repellant. If you want him to ask you out or are waiting for him to pop the question, chances are he may never. You will have to make the first move and then give him the power to drive the relationship further. And when you do that, they will make sure all your needs, wants, desires are met to the fullest. They will fight the world to be with you and provide for you.
3. They don’t appreciate
Aries men are not very good at praising. When you cook him his favourite meal and are waiting to hear him say how delicious it is, you are asking for too much. They are often very silent and speak only when needed. “It is fine” is equal to “yummy” for Aries men. They are not very artistic people innately and hence rarely do they understand the art behind cooking or anything that needs a creative and artistic effort. Therefore, they will not even appreciate the outcome of your effort to an extent that you expect. In such a case, try to pick on his body language or a gentle smile on his face which is really the token of his appreciation.
4. The providers and protectors
Aries men are providers and protectors. They will always look after you. Looking after you may not be the way you see in a romantic film, where he takes you to dine in a fancy place, or writes poems for you describing his love for you. They are very materialistic and transactional in nature and hence, he will look after all your worldly needs and wants. They will also protect you from any external threat. So be sure to appreciate this trait in him and be gracious to have found such a strong and ‘caring’ man.
5. Romance, what’s that?
They rarely understand romance. Because this is a fire sign, little do they know about roses. Do not expect him to remember anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Make peace with it that he may not sit next to you holding hands and caressing you. But because they are powerful and rebellious, they are very good when it comes to sex. They control and dominate in bed and for you ladies who are submissive, this is something you will surely thank an Aries man for.
6. Their way or the highway
They do not like to settle for less or compromise. They are practical, transactional and also very intellectual. An emotional drama that you may think will work on him, is surely going to take you apart. It is their way or the highway. So be patient, understand his viewpoint, take the things that make sense to you and follow along. In many cases you will see that his decisions are right for both of you. It is best if you can keep massaging his ego and in return he will start understanding your opinion on things.
Dating an Aries man can be challenging, as they are always displaying their strength and power. However, if you make him feel bad about it, he will start doubting his love for you. If you can make his traits a part of your relationship and accept them, you are in for some wonderful times with him.
