Taking an Aquarius on a Date
Aquarius can make for an exciting or chill date. This sign is the most unpredictable. They're looking for someone who can get on their wavelength, who can bring some fun, and who can enjoy a spontaneous night. They want a memorable date.
Aquarius types tend to be wordsmiths, they have a great deal of mental energy, they like unpredictable scenarios, and they're addicted to creativity. The utopian sign likes good feels and wants to be with someone who is humane, upstanding, and respectable. They're also okay with a wild night with someone they're only going to see once in their whole lifetime.
It's a guessing game with Aquarius. I decided to help you out with 15 date ideas that should appeal to most Aquarius types.
A Trip to the Art Museum
There is a reason dates at art museums are so common. They offer plenty of talking points with the displays. Aquarius will want to see how quickly you can think on your feet, what kind of commentary you could offer in their lives, and if you have mastered the art of wit. A date who can look at a painting and say something enlightening will get bonus points in the Aquarius' mind.
This is also a good way to stretch your legs and not have to do anything too strenuous. Art museum dates are also easy to schedule around breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The date can take a big chunk out of your day. It's a perfect adventure for the weekend. It can also help set a romantic tone.
An Unpredictable Night Downtown
The Aquarius doesn't need their entire night written into stone. They favor a mix of reservations and plans + the unknown. Take them downtown or to a busy place in your city. They like to people watch, they like to try new foods and restaurants, and they also like to grab a drink.
Impress them with a trendy dessert shop, meander the streets, and see where the night takes you. It doesn't hurt to have dinner + another event scheduled, whether stopping by a comedy club, going to a jazz show, mingling at a speakeasy, or dancing the waltz.
Again, the Aquarius wants to see how well you think on your feet. They like people who can improvise. They feel slowed down by too rigid of planning and structure.
- Aquarius is the type to jump in a fountain.
- They'll jump into a van of strangers they instantly identify as amicable.
- If they see a Ferris Wheel in the middle of nowhere, they want to ride it.
Something Completely Strange. . . Like a Magic Show
The Aquarius loves the strange, the weird, and the peculiar. If there is something going on in your town that doesn't really fit the scope of normal, it will likely be invigorating to the Aquarius. They'll go with you to see a psychic. They'll enjoy watching a magic show, whether it's good or bad. They'll enjoy watching fire dancers, sumo wrestlers, or people dressed up as fairies at outdoor productions of Shakespeare.
The Aquarius has a strong need to find the rebels. They don't like to do things in a typical way or to abide by all the rules. The Aquarius thinks life is too short to be normal; they're looking for magic and enchanted people. Take your Aquarius date to something unusual that they can observe.
An Elegant Night of Dancing
The Aquarius loves the strange, yes. But the Aquarius also likes to feel gorgeous and elegant. An Aquarius can often be coaxed to dress up. The women want to look divine. The men want to look handsome. Everybody else wants to look like a mystical forest god.
The Aquarius is an addict for creativity. If they don't know how to dance, consider taking dance lessons together. The Aquarius will do well in just about any style of dance, but for the right romantic touch I would encourage learning the waltz and foxtrot. As the Aquarius comes out of its shell, other more sultry dances could be learned.
A Night of Music
Again, Aquarius types are full of creativity. If they don't like art or dancing, surely they like music, otherwise, are you really dating an Aquarius?
Find out what are their favorite musical type of acts and take them to a show. Surely they have a favorite band or singer. Aquarius types tend to like symphonies and instrumental music. They like musical theater with flashy characters, fun lighting, and antics. It's fun for them to sit back and be amazed by talented musicians. They also have a soft spot for lyrics.
Whether taking a tour of a haunted house or going on a haunted history walk, Aquarius will be entertained. The idea that ghosts could be among us excites them. They want to learn more about the lore of their town; Aquarius types tend to be history buffs. There is something fun about exploring the underground parts of towns that are rumored to be run by ghosts.
Aquarius is always looking for a good story, so they do have a tendency to like urban legends. Aquarius also appreciates haunted tours because they seem somewhat rebellious.
Other reasons they like haunted plates: they don't fit in with convention, they ruffle the feathers of their religious friends, and they tend to inspire Aquarian imagination.
- Bonus points if you take the Aquarius to a murder mystery dinner, especially based around the game Clue.
- Aquarius will be happiest on a tour with a guide who makes history a priority of the walk. They like ghost stories, but history is even better.
- Stay in a haunted hotel, if you dare.
Exploring Historic Buildings
Aquarius, not so secretly, wants to live in a castle. They like to visit places with history and culture. They like visiting old hotels, exploring Victorian mansions, and climbing up the stairs of rich estates. There is something exciting about going to places they've never visited.
Again, they like dates that can improvise. They'll be excited if you have a naturally witty commentary while exploring a new place. The Aquarius wants to ultimately be with a soul mate who shares a similar mental signature with them.
- Explore places you've never been together.
- Take road trips to places you've never been.
- Aquarius doesn't just have to explore magnificent castles, they also like: ruins, abandoned properties, forgotten parks, unusual forests, graveyards, and historic churches.
Take Them to a Wedding
An Aquarius person is one of the best to ask to a wedding, especially if you need a date and fast. They'll like the spontaneity of it. The Aquarius may also like that it's a little bit rebellious to ask someone you're not really official with to a wedding.
Depending on the Aquarius, they'll have amazing etiquette, look fantastic, have the right wit and charm to carry you through the evening, and they'll like that there's dinner and dancing included in the night.
A wedding is one of the better dates for an Aquarius. It's somewhat contained, it's lavish, and there are hidden surprises along the way.
An Aquarium to Watch Fishes
The Aquarius is amazed by swirling fish and sea life. They'll like seeing the aquatic creatures getting the treatment they deserve. Aquariums are educational, they have plenty of space for walking, and there are plenty of talking points.
Sometimes the visuals come off romantic, like water tunnels and bright colored fish. These places are calm and soothing. An aquarium date is best when there are not as many people there and during the week. On the weekends, aquariums are more likely to get backed up with children.
Theme Park Date
There is plenty at amusement parks that will bring out Aquarius' wild side: food stations, unpredictable rides, unusual shows, strange characters, folksy music, and flashing lights. This is a great place for them to run around and stretch their legs and to get their imagination going on full blast.
Aquarius thinks theme parks are exciting, especially if they're a younger adult. At every corner there is something new to try. They might sing and dance with Mickey Mouse, go on a tour of a haunted mansion ride, hang out with mermaids, and then eat a barrel of ice cream. Aquarius thrives on fun: amusement parks guarantee fun.
Botanical Gardens and Walking through Nature
Aquarius doesn't have to be amazed by modern conveniences and thrills. They also like to spend time in nature, especially places that are beautiful. The Aquarius is the right person to take to a butterfly sanctuary, especially if they have a knack for taking pictures.
Aquarius will find their imagination opening up when they travel through stunning vistas. They like to be among the flowers, the berries, and the caterpillars. These more toned down places can make it easier to talk, to relax, and enjoy the more serene side of Aquarius.
These Aquarian souls can be loud and spontaneous, but they can also be quiet and to themselves. Sometimes they just need a day where they can enjoy afternoon tea, a walk through paradise, and a hot date who makes for extraordinary company.
A Place with Humor
Aquarius likes to laugh. They want to be amused. The endorphins that come out from laughing are good for bonding with others.
You're more likely to keep an Aquarius in your life if you can get them to laugh. Take them to a comedy show, take them to something that is unusual and doesn't really make sense, and go see a comedy movie.
An Aquarius will be content to sit on a couch and watch their favorite sitcom while eating a bowl of ice cream. They'll be even happier if you share the same sense of humor with them. Humor is their way of nourishment. Humor is how they cope with reality. They struggle to date someone who is too serious.
Bookstores, Conventions, Renaissance Festivals: Think Geek
Aquarius is one of the smartest signs of the zodiac. They get a double shot of beauty and brains, which is kind of unfair.
- They love to wander around bookstores, especially large ones, where they can come across new ideas, find an exciting new book, and drink coffee. They may sit down and play some chess. The options are endless to them.
- An Aquarius likely has at least one geeky thing they love: Marvel comics, Final Fantasy games, Star Trek. Take them to where the geeks gather. Places where people cosplay and role play. The Aquarius may want to join in on the fun or observe from afar. Figure out their niche geekness and help them to explore it.
- Is there anything more fantasy like than the Middle Ages? If there is a place with knights, dragons, fairies, and lore, then the Aquarius will enjoy it. The Aquarius often has a love of poetry and Shakespeare.
- Renaissance festivals also bring joy to the Aquarian's heart. They love costumes, they love silly accents, and they like those giant ostrich legs. Bonus points if you take them to a madrigal dinner.
Travel to Somewhere Exciting
Aquarius loves to travel. They have bad wanderlust. Invite them to go somewhere for the weekend or a long road trip. Adventure is just a few steps away from home. They're always looking for a great travel buddy. They want to be with someone who likes to explore the nuances of a town, who doesn't mind getting taken by magic and music.
Aquarius is dying to travel the world. They would like to visit all 7 continents before they die. They want to live in different places, they want to meet new people, and they want to try new things. Someone who likes to travel will go well with an Aquarius.
A Night of Playing Video Games
Aquarius does have a competitive streak. They're also geeky. Technology is their friend. They like to play games with people. They have a love of video games and all their wacky secrets.
A chill night-in playing video games is fun for this sign. They like games where you get to farm, race, fight, role play, and collect coins.
An easy way to connect with an Aquarius in the middle of the week is to buy them a nice dinner, play video games, and watch sitcoms. It might not be as exciting as traveling the world, but it's the kind of date or hangout that makes sense when you've got a job and tasks to juggle. . . or you can't do a whole lot of activities because of a pandemic or other situation.
