Sadly, sometimes men test women in many ways to see if they are compatible.

It can get very annoying, especially when you feel like the whole relationship is turning into one big mind game.

Maybe he wants to see if you are confident, or maybe he wants to see how well you handle being under pressure. Regardless of the intention, a man may test you to see just how willing you are to be with him.

When it comes down to it, there are some men who need some sort of control when in a relationship. They try to find a position of power to see how a woman will act on a first date or the first time meeting his friends.

Passing these tests sets the tone for the entire relationship. Failing it may mean there won't be a second date, or third, depending on his intention for you.

Women shouldn't feel like they need to be tested, and if a man feels the need to test a woman, maybe she just isn't the right one for him.

If she doesn't seem like 'The One,' then he shouldn't play with her emotions and put her through any sort of test. It isn't fair to either person in the relationship.

Yet it happens, and here is how a man will test you, by zodiac sign.

How Each Zodiac Sign Man Tests A Woman's Compatibility

How does an Aries man test a woman?

Aries men test you by seeing just how far you'll go to prove your loyalty. They may see if you will cancel plans last minute or ask around to see if you're dating other people.

They have a way of making it seem like you aren't doing enough; when this happens, tell them right away that you are as loyal as they come and if they can't see that, they should walk away right then and there.

If someone is pushing you too hard to be someone you are not, it is time to let them go. No test is worth your sanity.
