Aquarius is very intellectual, creative and analytical. Those born under this sign love a mental challenge and to discover the inner workings of people and things. The Water-bearer has a friendly nature, so he makes acquaintances easily. He's also highly compassionate and has empathy for others. Add to these salient traits his great sense of humor, and it's easy to see why he's extremely likable.

The Water-bearer dislikes following rules made by others, so he prefers to make his own. He's an individual who definitely marches to the beat of a different drum. Carefree, spontaneous and daring, the Water-bearer will try just about anything once. To the Aquarius man, life is one big adventure. Anything new excites him, but his interests are often short-lived, as he gets bored easily and is soon ready to move on to another challenge. Unfortunately, this usually has a profound impact on his personal relationships. He might have a huge circle of acquaintances, but he rarely has many close friends. This often holds true for his love interests as well.

The Water-bearer typically has a real problem with commitment. He doesn't want to tie himself down with one woman when there are so many others to meet and experience. Being in love with an Aquarius man can be a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. At first, you may feel sure that you're the center of his universe. But then he might suddenly lose interest for no apparent reason. He's also moody – he'll be perfectly happy with the relationship one day and depressed and gloomy the next. Once an Aquarius man does make the decision to commit, he's steadfast. If you ever fully win his heart, you'll find that he's loyal, supportive and completely faithful.

Finding and Keeping the Aquarius Man

Because of the Water-bearer's innate creativity, they might be found at art galleries, museums or craft shows. Their great compassion for others often gets them involved with various charitable causes, so you'll likely find Aquarius men leading or participating in these types of events. These guys have an intense interest in anything mysterious, which provides another clue as to where you might find an Aquarius man.

Attracting a male Water-bearer isn't usually difficult. They love meeting new people and will most likely see you as a new adventure. The problem will be keeping his attention. He may try to completely analyze you by placing you under his microscope, but don't let this happen too quickly. Maintain his interest by always keeping him guessing, but be honest with him.

Once you're in a relationship with an Aquarius male, never allow him to get bored. You'll have to surprise him once in a while and provide occasional adventures and explorations. Also, allow him his space and his freedom when he needs it. If you don't, he may feel trapped and will move on to his next potential love adventure.

Compatibility with Other Zodiac Signs

  • Aries March 21 – April 19

    Both the Aries woman and Aquarius man will understand one another's need for freedom, and respect the other's intelligence. Life for this pair will never be boring, but they may need to work a bit on staying grounded.

  • Taurus April 20 – May 20

    The Taurus woman craves security and tradition, and she won't likely find this with an Aquarius man. Both signs are very opinionated, so arguments may be numerous. On the other hand, the Water-bearer can add some excitement to Taurus' life and the Bull can bring some order to the Water Bearer's.

  • Gemini May 21 – June 21

    The Gemini woman and Aquarius man are very similar in personality. They share many of the same views. Each should fully understand the other's need for adventure and respect one another's cognitive powers. Since they also are both so free-spirited, commitment could be an issue for both.

  • Cancer June 22 – July 22

    The Cancer woman may find Aquarius shallow and emotionally aloof, while the Water-bearer likely will hate the clingy nature of the Crab. These two will both need to move out of their comfort zones to make a true love connection.

  • Leo July 23 – August 22

    Both the Leo woman and Aquarius man love life and together they'll have a busy social calendar. Unfortunately, the Lion is much more passionate about almost everything and will often consider Aquarius much too lukewarm. This will be a problem if they don't learn to appreciate what makes one another tick.

  • Virgo August 23 – September 22

    The Virgo woman is far too practical for the Aquarius man. Virgo will often see the Water-bearer as rash, unpredictable and illogical. And since neither sign is particularly affectionate or emotional, it will take some work on both parts to keep the spark alive.

  • Libra September 23 – October 22

    Both the Libra woman and Aquarius man are creative and intellectual, with strong social skills. A Libra woman might not get all the individual attention she craves from her Aquarius lover. But with time and her immense charm, she's likely to completely win him over.

  • Scorpio October 23 – November 21

    Aquarius may never provide the Scorpio woman with the security she thrives on, and she may see him as emotionally cold. But a Scorpion and a Water-bearer will often enjoy each other's company as friends. To take their relationship to the next level she may need to readjust her expectations a bit.

  • Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

    Both the Sagittarius woman and Aquarius man are adventurous, daring and fun-loving. Since each sign is also very independent, they'll understand that need in a partner and will give each other plenty of space – just so long as they are careful not to give too much space.

  • Capricorn December 22 – January 19

    The Capricorn woman is often much too practical for free-wheeling Aquarius, and the Water Bearer's flirtatious manner won't go over well with security-seeking Capricorn. There's also a good chance that Aquarius will find Capricorn mundane and boring. Suffice to say, it will take some work for these opposites to attract.

  • Aquarius January 20 – February 18

    The Aquarius woman and Aquarius man? Two Water-bearers can enjoy an exciting relationship together, filled with fun, adventure and great conversation. Neither partner will be too jealous or restrictive, so each will be allowed the freedom he or she needs. Of course, they also share similar weaknesses and won't be able to rely on one another to make up for their shortcomings.

  • Pisces February 19 – March 20

    The Pisces woman and Aquarius man may seem too different to be compatible. Aquarius is ruled by intellect, while Pisces is ruled by emotion. Also, the Water-bearer's innate need for freedom can make emotionally-dependent Pisces feel insecure. If they can get beyond their differences they could become the most interesting couple in their social circle.
