Dating Your Aries Man

Aries is first; the first sign of the Zodiac. Narcissism could be a problem since their instincts tell them they should be first. The Ram is determined and aggressive. He is a born leader. Mr. Aries is extroverted and has no problem telling you what’s on his mind.

Your Ram is protective, courageous, and generous. He, like an oldest child, is prone to assuming too much responsibility. The stress of attempting to set a good example may make him anxious at times. Deep inside he may be a bit insecure, but you would never know it. He thrives on attention from others. He will give you the shirt off his back, the world, and his heart if you give him his independence. He demands of himself that he work hard and earn all he gets.

He does have quite a temper unless he has grown out of it. His ruling planet is Mars, the planet of energy, aggression, passion, and war. If he has a beef with you, believe me you will know about it. He does make a great friend if you can stay on his good side.

Aries Man in Love

Being the partner of an Aries man will always be exciting and adventurous. Your lover is creative, impulsive, and competitive; so be ready for anything. He is strong and masculine. He can also be a bit of a sexist if he can get away with it.


The Ram does have a romantic side he impresses the ladies with. A true Aries man will plan a motorcycle trip at the exact time the moon was rising in the east and the sun was setting in the west. He is in control, however, and usually makes all the decisions.

Not all Arians are the Same

Each of us is a unique and special individual. We have our special gifts and talents as well as our faults. Astrologically speaking, constantly moving planets through constellations and the aspects between them can shed some light on why we are they way we are; as individuals.

A birth chart is also called a natal chart. This is a view of the sky at the exact time and place you were born. Your Sun sign, Moon sign, and rising sign (also called the Ascendant) are dominant placements in your birth chart. However, the other astrological planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, Chiron, the Moon’s nodes (Rahu and Ketu), and many other universal bodies can help determine the reasons for the personal traits in each of us.

There are many professional Astrologers who would be happy to explain your birth chart, if you know the exact time and place you were born. Even if you don’t have an exact time much can still be discovered.

Your interest in my work is greatly appreciated. I hope the read was helpful and entertaining. If you prefer, you may leave a suggestion, comment, or constructive criticism in the comments section. Your feedback is always welcomed and appreciated.

Glad to hear it, LauraAmsel. Thank you for posting.

Laura Amsel from Tucson, Arizona on July 22, 2013:

Yes, my Aries man fits this description.

I'm glad you enjoyed the read.

Thanks so much for your input!

Marcy Goodfleisch from Planet Earth on July 28, 2012:

This rings true - lots of Aries men in my family and life! Voted up and up!

Mmargie1966 (author) from Gainesville, GA on July 20, 2012:

Thank you both for your feedback. @maryam2008, I find it interesting also. @Mellonyy, many Arians are egocentric, however, there are so many things to take into consideration when trying to understand someone's personality, priorities, emotions, and how they express themselves. For example, if Mr. Aries has several planets in Libra, he could be more inclined to serve others. That's why the birth chart is so important.

Thanks again for the comments!

Mellonyy on July 20, 2012:

According some resource, Aries is an egocentric sign. They tend be self focused and believe everyone else should focus on them too. So, the good news, as you wrote is "not all arians are the same". Voted up! Good point of view.
