It’s Aries season, y’all! And this Aries wants to set the record straight about what it’s like to date an Aries. I must admit that the first sign of the zodiac gets a bad rap. Sure, we can be babies and have a serious fear of rejection, which makes it difficult to understand us and our hard exterior. Oh, but when we are in love we are amazing! I mean, I’m amazing all the time, but love really does make an Aries a better person overall.
So if you’re eyeing that ram across the room, and their Mars energy is pulling you in, here’s what it’s really like to date an Aries.
Be a Little Challenging
Aries thrive on challenges. As the pioneers of the zodiac, we don’t really want anything to come easy. It doesn’t mean you treat us like crap. We just like to be teased a little. If you are too mushy or extra on the first date, you will turn us off.
And maybe even a little blunt. Yes, we can be insensitive at times. We just really like to speak our minds and tell it like it is. Trust that you can always count on your Aries to be honest.
We Got Your Back
Aries are loyal to a fault, which means we will always be in your corner. We defend those that we love and do not allow anyone to treat them unfairly. We hate unfairness! So if your nasty coworker chooses another colleague for a project even though you are more qualified, or if your momma favors your sister and it hurts your feelings, your Aries will become a Polar Bear and attack!
Speaking of attacking, Aries can be really feisty. We are hot tempered, especially when younger, but we don’t stay mad for long. Never one to hold a grudge, your Aries will cuddle up next to you like a cute little lamb (hey, fellow Aries, Mariah Carey!) as if her fire was never lit.
What’s worse than an Aries who is angry? One who has cut you off. When we love, we forgive and move on. If you have betrayed us or hurt us repeatedly with no remorse, or have ignored our attempts at working things out when we fuck up, we become so icy, it’s like we’re a different person.
Your Personal Cheerleader
Ra, ra, sis, boom, ba! Whatever you want to do, your Aries will cheer you on. We are super supportive and will never bash your dream. In fact, we may just finance it, or lead it all together. We believe in those that we love, and will roll up our sleeves to get you started and help you succeed in whatever you desire.
A Barrel of Laughs
Aries have a young and exuberant spirit, even when we are 70 years old. We love to laugh and, not unlike fellow Aries, Conan O’Brien, we love making people laugh. You will never be bored when dating an Aries.
We Fear Rejection
Under our tough exterior is a puddle of goo. Yes, Aries are strong-willed, resilient, and tenacious leaders and bad asses, but we have an Achilles Heel: rejection. I have personally been affected by rejection due to my father’s abandonment, but every Aries fears being left or turned down by the one that they love. Don’t be that person to us! It may not break up (nothing does) but it will scar us.
A Bit Possessive
What’s mine is mine! That’s an Aries motto. And that includes you when we are dating you. We won’t follow you around in a limo, but we do like to know who your friends are, or who that girl that keeps texting you. For an Aries, sharing is not caring!
We Are Vulnerable
Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, we are the babies of the zodiac. That makes us very vulnerable. We hate showing it but there are telltale signs. If your Aries is super quiet, that means they are too emotional to express their feelings. Try talking to them in a sweet way, ask what is wrong, and hold them tight when they spill. We need to be reassured that when we show our innermost feelings you will be there to catch us and won’t let go.
