The good, the bad, the Aries man.

So you're curious about what it takes to love an Aries man, huh? I don't blame you. They are complicated, spontaneous, PASSIONATE (and totally beautiful) creatures. These guys TOTALLY rock your romantic world and are SUPER unforgettable ... but what makes them that way? 

Well here's a list of 10 things you probably didn't know about Aries men, so you can love them JUST as they are:


1. Being in a relationship with them is NEVER boring.

If you've ever met an Aries man, you'll know (almost instantly) that they are ALWAYS doing SOMETHING. These guys just don't know how to stay still. So needless to say, being in a romantic relationship with them is — well — fun (to say the least).

But remember, just because HE's always down for whatever doesn't mean you'll me the same way, so keeping that open line of communication between you two is key to keeping things fresh AND comfortable.

2. They need to know when they are doing a good job. 

OK, so Aries men tend to be a bit more on the egotistical side, so when they are doing something right, they really like to hear about it. This can come to a fault when they are always wanting to be recognized (especially when you're the kind of person who is the total opposite of that), but a good way to balance the two is just to make sure you're saying "thank you" when he goes out of his way and showing him you love him in other ways (why not bring HIM flowers home one day?). 

Aries men are FULL of passion, so consider this a GREAT thing ... just pay a bit more attention to him than you would someone else so that he's just as happy as he makes you.

3. They get antsy fairly quickly.

Like we said above, Aries men are pretty active, so if they are sitting around the house binge watching Netflix with you, they are going to get pretty irritated pretty fast. So after you do a couple hours of TV, definitely get your sneakers on and head outside to give him some relief. Go for a hike, smell the air and get some dirt under your fingernails.

LIVE a little — away from the glowing rectangles. Do that, and he'll be happy as a hippo.

4. You should always be prepared for a spontaneous adventure. 

If you haven't noticed already, these guys like to be outside, experiencing life to the fullest pretty much all the time, so if you're dating an Aries man, you should be down for that adventure too. They are super spontaneous and have a passion for hanging out with the people they love most, so make sure you're inviting other people along for the ride. You won't regret it (and you'll make him SUPER happy).

5. When they love, they are in it for the LONG haul (if you're the right partner, that is). 

So speaking of people they love, if an Aries man has chosen you to hang out with, he must REALLY like you. These guys are really into thinking about the long-term, so hopefully you're ready for some dedication. Casual dating can be fun for anyone (Aries men included), but ultimately they are ready for someone they want to spend the rest of their lives with. So if you think you're that person ... lucky you!

6. They are loyal to the people they love (which makes it hard to get into their inner circle). 

Because Aries men are UBER passionate about keeping the people they love closely involved in their lives, they also tend to be super protective. So if you are just starting with him, make sure you're being honest and accepting all of his friends as your own, because honestly, to him they are family

7. Because they are loyal, they tend to work HARD. And a LOT. 

So Aries men are workaholics. Yeah, I said it. (Brutal truths, right?) Because they work so hard to be the best they can be at everything and because they sometimes need that recognition, when they are at work they are looking for those same things. So that means longer hours, sometimes lots of stress about doing well and definitely something he's always thinking about.

But don't let that put you off — you should take it as a GREAT part of his personality. Because he's also putting those same passionate efforts into your relationship. He just wants to win at life, OK?

8. They are the MASTERS of YOLO. 

Aries men don't have time to fool around with things they aren't passionate about, and they are determined to live life to the ABSOLUTE fullest. So if you're dating one, be prepared to do it along with them. Go on adventures. Visit new countries. Skydive. Be impulsive. These guys are up for anything (and will want you to come along with them for the ride).

9. They need some space to breathe and be themselves. 

So all this passion can be exhausting for anyone (yeah, you too), so these guys (like many guys of ALL signs) really just need some space to think, decompress, and gather themselves again. It's HARD being so amazing all the time, ya feel? So take that time away from him to decompress yourself, that way you're ready to dive head first into loving him with just as much love as he gives back.

10. Patience is not their forte. 

And lastly — especially if they aren't getting that decompression time discussed above — you have to know that patience is JUST not something Aries men have. They want what they want when they want it. Simple as that. Now, it's not all bad. This can be a great thing if YOU are the thing that Aries man wants (if you catch my drift), so just accept him as he is — faults and all — and know that everything he does comes from a really good, passionate place.
