Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac and represented by the symbol of the fish. The Pisces sign begins on February 19 and runs through March 20. The Pisces man is the sensitive and emotional companion that you have been waiting all your life to meet. He’s the poet of the zodiac signs and quite easily the most romantic, second only to the Libra man. In fact, the Pisces man is much more intuitive and gentle than the Libra man and usually much less of a player. If you’ve ever wanted a man to dote on you hand and foot, Pisces is your guy. Most women wonder where all the good men have gone, well search no more because if you’ve found a Pisces man you may have just met one of the nicest guys around.

Of course, there are two sides to every story and it’s not all rainbows and butterflies with the Pisces guy. You may think you want a man who actually calls and is open and wants to talk about his feelings, but you’ve never thought that you might get irritated by these very qualities. If you date the Pisces man, more than likely he will be the more emotional and possess the more feminine traits in your relationship. This also means that his ego is very fragile and can get bruised easily. If you don’t answer his calls in a timely manner, he will get offended or think something is wrong in your relationship even though you were just busy and didn’t have the time to respond. You will be the one in your relationship who has to be the man and try to make things better because he will be too busy crying in the corner.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. When you first meet the Pisces man, he will pull out all the stops and romance the heck out of you. Think flowers, dinners, poetry, and maybe even jewelry. He will say all the right things at exactly the right time. His demeanor will be quiet and gentle. Pisces man is not generally one to be hot headed or have a temper. He is more likely to shed a tear and isolate if things don’t go his way. Pisces man will sweep you off your feet like no other. While he may seem shy and quiet to the outside world, he will know exactly what to say to you to make you fall for him. This is where it gets tricky. By nature, Pisces guy is not usually a player, but when he is, you really have to watch out because you never see it coming. You will be so caught up in his sensitive and emotional side you will not notice that it is all part of the game. Don’t worry though, about 95% of the time, the Pisces man is as genuine and authentic as they come. He is the hopeless romantic. The gentleman you read about in Nicholas Sparks novels who you’ve long had to accept does not really exist in real life. Yet Pisces man brings that dream to life because he is everything you have ever wanted in a guy. Or so you think..

It’s that other 5% of Pisces men that you really have to worry about. The good news is you more than likely will not come across one in your lifetime because they’re a very rare subsection of this water sign. Much like the unicorn it is known to exist but very few have actually come across it personally. The key to spotting the Pisces player is knowing how he operates. The player will always want to move things along much faster than the regular Pisces guy. That is how you notice him. He will try to move the relationship at warp speed so you don’t have time to really think about things because you’re too caught up “falling in love.” The Pisces guy will always take your feelings into consideration every step of the way and will never go faster than what you are comfortable with. The Pisces Player will try to pretend that he is sensitive, but you will see right through that because of how quick he tries to get to the milestones like meeting your family, moving in, and even getting engaged. Keep those things in mind and you will never be fooled by the slimy Pisces player.

As for the regular Pisces guy, he may seem like the perfect man on paper, but rest assured he is not without his faults. One of his biggest shortcomings is that he is very needy. While this may seem like a wonderful quality since most men are the opposite and very emotionally aloof, it becomes annoying very quickly. The strong and independent woman of this modern age does not need a guy to know her every move. She does not want to be the one drying his tears after a sentimental moment in a movie. Rather she wants a man who is a combination of both. He is in touch with his feelings but still maintains an air of mystery. Pisces man has not mastered this delicate combination and usually comes off as an emotional mess. While women who are more on the needier side themselves may be okay with this arrangement, the more self-empowered woman will simply not stand for it. For her, it will feel like she has a child to take care of rather than a partner who is emotionally on the same level. For most women, Pisces man is just a little too much work to date because of his delicate nature.

Other women are perfectly content with the gentle nature of the Pisces man because it gives them a chance to lead and to be the one in charge of the relationship. Pisces guy is the type to freely give that power to any women he is with if she so chooses to have it. He will be totally happy being told what to do by a more powerful woman, in fact, it may very well turn him on. It really depends on what kind of woman Pisces man comes across. For many women he may be too much mush and work and for others he may just be perfect guy they can take care of. A lot of women refer to the Pisces guy as simply too nice and they just can’t get involved with someone like that. For other women, Pisces guy is just nice enough for a happy and mutually beneficial relationship.

Among his friends, Pisces guy is the one everyone goes to for advice because he is such a good listener. That is one of the reasons why he makes a good boyfriend, he takes the time to listen to his woman which in turn makes it easy for him to know what she wants. Most men don’t do this and that’s where Pisces guy stands out from the crowd. Pisces guy will make his woman feel like the only one in the world if she also returns the favor for him. He just needs someone who is as giving and caring as he is.

This is why Pisces guy will not do well with women Fire signs such as Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo. The only way such a combination will work is if the women Fire sign is in control and she’s fine with a man who just gives in to whatever she wants. If she wants an equal to herself, it will not work out with the Pisces man because he is definitely not the alpha type. With women born under the Air Signs such as Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini, Pisces is not the best fit either. They are simply too aloof and unemotional for him. He needs someone more his type which is why he is especially compatible with other water signs such as his twin Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio. These are the ones he fits best with and they completely understand each other because they are just as sensitive, intuitive, and emotional. Pisces man is also very suitable with women born under the Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus. Their grounded nature is in sync with his sensitive one. There is no power struggle because each sign knows where the other stands and is perfectly happy with it.


All in all, Pisces is generally the good guy who will let you be the center of his universe if you allow him to. In exchange, be prepared to give him a lot of attention and love because his needy nature requires it. If your Pisces guy belongs to the main 95%, you never have to worry about him cheating or doing you dirty because he only has eyes for you. He will be too busy trying to make you happy to have time to look or talk to any other women. Pisces men are usually honest and loyal so try not to take advantage of his good nature. That’s one thing Pisces men need to watch out for, being too nice and forgiving. Just like there are male players out there, the female players aren’t any less manipulative. Not to worry though, because in the end, the intuition of the Pisces man will lead him to his ultimate woman.
