One thing's for sure: dating an Aquarius will be a truly unique experience! Aquarians are born to stand out. They cringe at having to do things the same old way -- -- this rebellious sign loves a little shock and surprise, so if you're dating Aquarius, you better expect the unexpected!
Do you have what an Aquarius is looking for in a romantic partner? Keep reading to see how Aquarians handle love and relationships and find out if they could be the perfect match for you!
Positive Aquarius traits
When you're in a relationship with an Aquarius, you better believe there is a true friendship beneath the romance. Because Aquarians don't rely on their emotions as much as other signs, the way they know if they want to explore a relationship further is if there is a natural, friendly vibe between the two of you. And bonus: Because Aquarians are all about friendship, they make great companions for social butterflies who enjoy hanging out in group settings.
A relationship with an Aquarius will never be one of those experiences where there's tons of passion, but you don't really connect on a mental level. Aquarians NEED a mental connection with their romantic partners. They are intellectual and logical by nature and need a partner they feel comfortable conversing and sharing their ideas with.
And because Aquarians value their individuality so strongly, they are just as respectful of the individuality of others. You'll never feel like your Aquarius partner is being controlling or possessive -- part of the way they show love is by allowing you the space to be yourself.
Negative Aquarius traits
Most long-term relationships need a healthy combination of mental, physical, and emotional connection. If you're dating an Aquarius, though, you're likely to get a barrage of mental energy, but feel the physical and emotional bond is lacking. It's true, Aquarians aren't very attached to their feelings, but this is more of a problem for you than for them: you may feel they are being cold or distant from you, while they're really just doing what feels comfortable and natural to them. If you're someone who wants a deep, emotional connection with a romantic partner, an Aquarius may not be the right one for you.
People who are extra suspicious of their lovers or who need a lot of validation from their partners could also have a hard time dating an Aquarius. Aquarians are free birds and trying to keep tabs on them or making them feel like they're being watched will get them to run the other way. They can also be real commitment-phobes, so if you have a timeline for your love life, you may find they don't fit into your agenda.
Aquarius in bed
Like everything else in an Aquarius' life, sex is a mental activity. They have sex on their minds often -- how to please their partner, how they wish to be pleased. It's an exhilarating experience for them to finally get these thoughts out of their mind and put them into action! In fact, they may even get more riled up just talking about sex than the actual act itself!/p>
Aquarians also like things that are new and unusual, so if you're looking to have a physical relationship with one, you better be up for some experimentation in the bedroom. Luckily you'll never have to think too hard about a sexy anniversary or Valentine's Day gift for them: It's like sex toys -- especially electronic ones -- were made for Aquarians!
Aquarius in a relationship
Aquarius, you like that you live life head-first and not heart-first -- it's not that you don't feel anything, just that your feelings aren't a top priority. However, most of your partners will expect emotions to be a part of a romantic relationship. When you're in a relationship, you need to make an effort to let your partner know that you are emotionally invested in them and your future together. Just because you don't need to hear that from them doesn't mean they don't need to hear it from you -- give a little.
You're also such a future-focused person, you can leave your partner feeling like the two of you are living in different times and spaces. They are still learning things you have already learned -- they can't meet you where you are, so you need to meet them where they are. If a lover is showing sincere interest in your ideas and dreams, don't just take off without them -- you could use all the support you can get.
Dating an Aquarius man or Aquarius woman
Aquarians don't do relationships the same way others do, so if you want to date someone of this sign, we've got a few important tips!
First of all, don't be possessive. Aquarians are free thinkers and straight-up need their independence and individuality in order to be happy. If you show signs of wanting to control them or keep them in the confines of whatever a relationship means to you, you'll suffocate your Aquarius partner.
Everyone has feelings -- even an Aquarius. But chances are you are more tied to your feelings than your Aquarius lover. Aquarians act with their minds, not their hearts, so if you're able to tone down your emotions and put more thought into your words, actions, and reactions, you'll be speaking Aquarius' same language.
And speaking of language ... do try to decode your Aquarius partner's love language. Because this sign is so insistent on standing out, they certainly don't express love in the same way you do or your past partners have -- but that doesn't mean they aren't showing it! Aquarians show love in ways you won't expect, but you can be sure they will treat you like no one ever has before!
