Best Zodiac Matches for an Aquarius Man
Research suggests that you’re more likely to end up dating someone similar to yourself, so how much more similar can you get than by dating someone who has the same zodiac sign as you?
An Aquarius will inherently understand another Aquarius’ moodiness, temperamentality, and aloofness. They’ll also appreciate each other’s assertiveness and honesty.
Aquarians are also open-minded. They love people of all sorts and backgrounds, and they’re up to try anything at least once. While they understand that other people are more reserved and have prejudices based on their upbringing, Aquarians actively try to make an inclusive space for the people around them — and prefer their partners do so as well.
Those under the Aquarius zodiac sign also tend to be creative and free-spirited. An air sign, they just want to feel where the wind takes them and observe the beautiful scenery as it passes. Aquarians are philosophical to a fault, always surmising eloquent, if not poignant, things to say about the world around them.
An Aquarius man will love for an Aquarius woman to match his intellect, personality, and outlook on life. While a pair of Aquarians means double the occasional broodiness and angst, they’ll know how to deal with their partner’s mood swings, as they’re accustomed to their own.
While Aquarians can undoubtedly fall in love with other star signs, there’s simply no matching your own star sign.
Air signs seem to understand other air signs. While Libra is more balanced and calm, Geminis seem to be the opposite. They’re the fieriest of the air signs, and they’re prone to random changes in their thoughts and moods. If a Gemini makes plans for the night, those plans are likely to change five or six times because the Gemini can’t make up their mind.
A Gemini’s indecisiveness is something an Aquarius will understand. While Aquarians tend to make decisions and stick with them, that doesn’t mean that their internal thought process is straightforward. It’s quite the opposite — Aquarians will mull over a problem to make sure they’re making the right decision. When they feel they have their choice, they’ll make it with ease.
Gemini’s are flexible as a result of their indecisiveness. You can’t constantly change your mind about one choice then not be as flexible when life changes your plans. An Aquarius man will like how easy-going their Gemini partner is. Aquarians don’t like rigid people who are stubborn and uncompromising (though the Aquarius can be like that sometimes).
The Aquarius will enjoy how funny and outgoing their Gemini partner is. Gemini’s are known for their quick wit and ability to make other people laugh. Comedy is inherently creative, as you have to twist observations of the real world to make the joke. The Aquarius man will not only like the joke but the mind that created it.
A Gemini also doesn’t need prompting to go up to others and strike up a conversation. Geminis love meeting new people, so they tend to be open-minded and try to talk to as many people as possible. The Aquarius man will enjoy their partner, introducing them to new people, and both the Aquarius and the Gemini will like watching their social circle expand.
While an Aquarius man and Gemini partner certainly seem like a match made in heaven, the relationship will still have some hardships.
Geminis tend to lack direction in life as a result of their indecisiveness. Geminis are pulled by impulse, so even if the Gemini settles on a career path, for example, they’ll likely pull themselves off of it because they had the impulse to do something else.
The Aquarius man is easy going, but they won’t like a partner who doesn’t know what they’re doing in life. Aquarians respect people with ambition and life goals. The directionless Gemini can feel stuck in a rut and fall into a safe routine as a result. Though understanding, the Aquarius man will eventually want more if the Gemini doesn’t get their act together.
And while the Gemini’s quick wit and sharp humor make them the life of the partner, it means they tend to hide behind their humor when it comes to serious topics. A Gemini can be scared of talking about their feelings and use jokes to deflect how they feel. It’s funny at first, but the act gets old quickly.
The Aquarius, who is all about business and efficiency, will grow frustrated with the Gemini’s lack of communication skills. He’ll want someone who can articulate how they feel and discuss their emotions — not someone who will run away from their feelings or hide behind jokes like the Gemini. If the Gemini can’t learn to talk about their feelings, the relationship won’t work out.
Despite these minor set-backs, the Aquarius man is most compatible with a Gemini partner. While there will be flaws in the relationship, the initial attraction can be strong enough to give both parties the motivation to push through hardships.
Behind Aquarius and Gemini is the last air sign — Libra. Libra’s are known for their love of balance and justice. Libra’s are the mediators of arguments rather than someone who will pick a side. Libras just can’t. Since their zodiac symbol is a balancing scale, they have to weigh every option on either side before coming to a decision.
This isn’t the same as indecisiveness found in the Gemini. Libras will eventually come to a decision after weighing the weight of the evidence presented to them. It will just take them longer because they’re critically thinking about what the best choice is as a result of what they already know.
This is different from Gemini’s thought process. The Gemini will take in all information but become overwhelmed by the choices to the point where they don’t make a decision.
An Aquarius man will prefer the Libra’s decision making over the Gemini’s because at least the Libra can make a decision at all. Not only that, but when a Libra makes a decision, they tend to stick with it. That’s the reverse of the Gemini, who is prone to changing their mind many times after making a decision.
Libras are also romantic people. They like making their partner feel loved in every way they can. Libras will leave nice notes for their partner, bake for them, and shower them with compliments so that their partner knows precisely how much the Libra adores them.
The Aquarius man will like this romantic side of their Libra partner. While Aquarians aren’t known for their passionate natures, they can certainly put on the moves and reciprocate what the Libra gives them. The Libra, charming as ever, will be sure to return the favor, and so they’ll build their foundation of a relationship from the acts of love they give each other.
Libras are known for their great listening skills. It’s only fair to their partner to listen to them when they speak, right? Not only that, but Libras will ask questions and make sure they understand what their partner is saying.
The Aquarius man will love that aspect of their Libra partner. The Aquarius man comes up with ideas on the daily, so he’ll want someone to share them with. The Libra will listen carefully and provide critique when necessary, challenging the Aquarians viewpoint and pointing out any flaws in the logic. The Aquarius man will love that mental stimulation, in addition to the listening.
The biggest flaw about the Libra is that they’re prone to laziness. The energetic and active Aquarius won’t like that aspect of their partner. The Aquarius man will want someone who will match their vigor, so their partner’s laziness is enough to make them consider other people to date.
Last but not least, the best zodiac sign for an Aquarius man to date is a Leo. Effortlessly charismatic, Leo tends to draw a lot of attention to themselves. Leo isn’t one to shy away from the spotlight either — they’ll soak up every minute of attention they can get and work hard to get more.
The Aquarius man will automatically be drawn to Leo because of Leo’s charm. It’s magnetic. The Aquarius man can’t help it. If you’ve ever met a Leo, you know how easy it is to like them.
Aside from their charm, Leos are honest and loyal friends. When they do something they shouldn’t have, they’ll own up to their mistakes. They hate lying, as lying tends to paint them in a bad light and harm their charisma. Their honesty, which can hurt them sometimes, further adds to their charm.
And if Leo likes you, they’ll do anything for you. If you have a crisis in the middle of the night, Leo is the one to call. A Leo will do whatever they can to help the ones they love. The Aquarius man will love that aspect of their partner, and feel loved and protected by Leo.
The Leo is not without flaws, though. They tend to be inflexible since they think their way is the right way. If the Aquarius man poses any other option, Leo probably won’t even consider it. This will madden the Aquarius man, who’s easy-going nature will chafe against Leo’s stubbornness.
Leos are also prone to jealousy in many ways. Leos want to be the best. If they see someone who Leo thinks is better than them, Leo will take it personally. The Leo will believe they are not enough in some way and feel inferior to the person they see. As a result, Leo can lash out due to their jealousy, which can scare away an Aquarius man.
If Leo can learn to control their jealousy in addition to learning how to compromise, an Aquarius man will be pleased with a Leo partner.
Worst Matches for an Aquarius Man
An Aquarius man won’t do well with the water signs, and here’s why.
Cancers are known for their loving, caring, and romantic natures. But because they have so much love for their partners, they want to see their partners all the time. This can cause the Cancer to be clingy.
Clinging onto an Aquarius man is the number one way to make him run away. Aquarius men need their space from their partner — no matter how much the Aquarius man loves their partner. That time away gives the Aquarius man time to breathe and resettle. If a Cancer partner wants to see the Aquarius man all the time, the Aquarian can’t get that precious time to himself.
Cancers are perhaps the clingiest zodiac sign, which is why they top the list of folks an Aquarius man won’t do well with.
Pisces is also prone to clinginess, though not as heavily as a Cancer. Perhaps the biggest flaw with a Pisces is that they’re passive and co-dependent. A Pisces will go with whatever the group wants to do. In a relationship, a Pisces can lose the boundary of their own identity and start to mold into the character of their partner.
The co-dependence is the biggest reason an Aquarius man won’t like a Pisces partner. An Aquarian’s independence means not only time but identity as well. An Aquarius man will notice that his partner is molding their identity after his own, which puts a lot of pressure on him. He’ll want to break things off to give both parties time to breathe and be their true selves.
These were the best — and worst — matches for an Aquarius man. Where do you fall on the list?
