Dating The Zodiac: Aries

Aries and dating

Aries and dating

Once I dated an Aries who did chin-ups on the door frame every time he went to the bar or the lavatory. The latter was so frequent that i suspected either a Space Dust habit or bladder control issues.

The Aries I dated had the classic “Mars mark” on his forehead, from headbutting a tree house in some proto-Aries attempted Tarzan stunt as a boy. Or, as he put it, an early indicator of daring and superior perception. Yes, Aries boast as foreplay.

At least MsAries is honest…

‘I am an Aries. I’ve never been dumped. But so far:

  • broke up with my first love via hotmail; it was the early 00s.
  • broke up with a boyfriend after his surprise birthday party – I threw – ended.
  • left my wife because her mother annoyed me more than I loved her.
  • broke up with a Leo boyfriend because his ego was bigger than mine.
  • ended my marriage because my husband had a failure to provide issue (and I told him this).
  • stopped seeing a really nice guy because I was freaked out by what he would look like naked because his hands were really small and girly.

Aw, y’all. Just don’t date me.’

And you? Share your Aries dating insights.

I was in a relationship with an Aquarius sun, Aries moon for 7 years. I could write a (long) blog entry about his baffling personality, but it wouldn’t do Aries justice, I don’t think. I really believe that Aries is way more comfortable in the sun position than the moon position, and especially in combination with a sun like Aquarius — with Aquarians, you’ve already got a bit of a God complex, and if you throw it in with an Aries moon (which is almost entirely subjective — I swear, I don’t put much stock in Aries to see the… Read more »

I’m an Aries and would never date an Aries. Too much mars in the men. I prefer them mellow. I do have 2 nephews who I adore that are both Aries. Still young boys but one is a competitive athlete and the other is class president. I adore them and hope they are always alpha as they should be. I think that the Aries trait that most don’t get is that we love ourselves. LOVE ourselves. Not as an act of defiance but a genuine love that we feel everyone should have for themselves. This translates into bravado and overconfidence.… Read more »

My high school sweetheart–now a dear friend–An anarchist activist locksmith clock worker (Taurus Mars/Venus)–has broken only one bone in his body–his skull–which he has broken three times. Very ADHD high energy in high school–started a school club our final year called “the man club” which became the largest club on our campus within two weeks–and somehow had more female members than male. Meetings basically just consisted of everybody standing on the gym floor while he gave glorious speeches above us in the upper bleachers. I realized then that he could have been a cult leader.

Many tales to choose from, we went to a friend’s wedding where we were pitching the tent and staying the night. I was pregnant so got tucked into bed & sleeping long before the party fizzled. Woke about 3.30am to find Mr Aries or Supreme Commander as he liked to be known, missing a quick search found him passed out on the grass. Anyhoo it was in the daylight on waking that we noticed a massive amount of vivid marker pen ink on his hands. The happy couple had asked guests to leave an encouraging message on a huge canvas… Read more »

I posed naked for his album cover and got him his 15 minutes of fame on Playboy.com with the cover ;)…The best story of his cheating was with him living in LA and me elsewhere.

Babies have tremendous egos. Though the difference between a babies ego and an adults is that the baby is fascinated in itself , the healthy baby loves itself. This is more the nature of Aries ego. It’s not an ego that manipulates others or needs to put people down to feel good about themselves. .As an Aries male….to all you grown ups . Just because I… Read more »

That is exactly how I describe Arien selfishness/ego to people: as the baby is fascinated by its own fingers and toes. Do you begrudge the baby its selfishness? Do you take it personally? No! It’s a baby. And so Aries is the infant of the zodiac. Babies are also without guile and utterly charming. And as far as the comments that turned in that bizarre direction: if someone would really turn down an otherwise perfectly lovely suitor because of any aspect of their astro- well, most grown-ups with a modicum of intelligence would give those ninnies a wide berth anyway,… Read more »

I think what certain of those people failed to keep in mind is that this was a *contest for the most outrageous stories* of dating a particular sign. Just because I dated a Taurus who would only order meat and potatoes at restaurants (a Brit), and not let them touch each other on the plate- would stick to the same two or three sex positions and fantasies (pirate abducting waif was his fave), utterly boring me despite his “gifts”- that doesn’t mean I’ll never date a Taurus again.

It’s not that I wouldn’t go out with one, it’s that quality ones never ask me out. And I haven’t found one I like enough to chase down to ask out. So maybe it works 2 ways and I’m actually an Aries repellant? All the ones I’ve ever seen who like me just sort of tail me like quiet ghosts that smell of sour milk and B.O. There was one that asked me out in April but then nothing. I guess I didn’t pass whatever test is necessary to get Ariean attention in the dating market. So yeah don’t take… Read more »

I love Aries dynamos! I don’t think too many people would refuse a hot Aries just on the basis of their Sun sign anyway. And besides, when we factor in Progressed Suns a lot of Aquas and Fishies are running around bumping their heads, upping the exercise regimen, talking in bullet points and wondering why the hell they don’t need assertiveness classes anymore! Oh dear, cringing already at thought of people’s Aquarian dating show and tell stories…eek!

I’ve only ever had Aries who pine after me for 7-9 years (without my knowing) who I consider really close friends… When I find out that they think I’m the love of their lives I’m always super surprised and generally find them to be too “boring” for me… Then eventually we just grow apart. But strangely enough their love for me NEVER DIES. and it makes it really awkward to ever go visit my home town!

We made out.
The lack of brain attraction ( no deep conversation ) stopped all potential romantic fixation on my part.

As a young, naive Gem girl, I encountered a slew of Aries men, including my first “love.” Now I put the “love” in quotes because we really didn’t know each other at all, had a long-distance relationship, and probably spent a total of about 10 days in each other’s physical presence out of a year and a half of knowing each other. So, how does that work, you rightly ask? Well, me met one rainy weekend just weeks before I graduated high school because we were both in this international youth exchange program.

Interesting, I have an Aries Sun and feel the same about Gemini men- I attract a lot of them to my yard but despite being fond friends and enthusiastic lovers, they never quite hit the emotional bullseye for me.

Ahaha, “Am noting a theme here that Aries will baldly request that others hide so they can carry on with other parts of their lives unaffected.”

This happened to me too with an Aries! But I found it so terribly amusing. I’m a Gem Sun/Merc/Venus in the 5th. I used the experience as well for interesting story materials!

Yes my theory is that brashness and suddenness are Aries weapons as much as brawn. You don’t have time to think & find yourself under a dashboard or in a cupboard if you’re not careful.

My Mars is in Aries and I can’t help but like them. Despite being completely obnoxious at times the more intelligent ones are legitimately hilarious manchildren…being somewhat of a Peter Pan myself is what builds the connection I think. Both the Aries I dated were classic ENFP 7s (for those into typology), tall and thin with black hair, fair skin, boyish gap teeth, freckles, and no scars that I remember but strangely shaped foreheads. Super charismatic and exrtroverted, extremely passionate about their special interests/talents, always down for a new adventure. I am extremely introverted and just could not keep up… Read more »

I met a spunky Aries- instant attraction- I knew he was pretty keen when he lifted his T Shirt up to show me that he hadn’t lost his peak rugby body condition (2 minutes after meeting him) – nice abs. He asked me out to a party where I didn’t know a soul- I met him there and he told me he thought I was stalking him…at this point I just knew he had Mercury in Pisces and it was going to be a hot mess. Anyway in a moment of unhinged insanity I went home with him…he ripped his… Read more »

I once dated an Aries….he was the bachelor who just split with Cha Cha (a leggie dancer) and i showed up in closer proximity. Our first meeting was an interview and he spent the time charming me and obviously admiring my legs – hoping my skirt would be shorter. He made it obvious that i was to be conquered and an agonising (in a holding self back from sexual abandon way) 18 months later I succumbed. He is still unbelievably potent in his early 60’s. One of our first dates came as he drove his red dirt ridden 4 wd… Read more »

There is a common behaviour around the people that don’t like my aries – they want to take him down, put him in is place sort of stuff.

He finds these people amusing. There is no down for him, that space belongs to others 😉

I lived with an Aries man for three years. He was a musician/sommelier/drug dealer an liked to say he was in ‘attitude reajustment’. When we were breaking up (a break I instigated) we met in the park one lunch time to discuss the rental agreement, our mutual possessions etc. For his lunch Aries brought a whole tuna steak, fresh from the fishmonger. He carefully unwrapped it and as we spoke, took bites from the bloody red piece of flesh. I tried not to take any notice, but must have raised an eyebrow at one point. He just did a little… Read more »

I had a dream about a man with a huge grin on his face and then I met him ten years later. He looked like this guy in the photo on his throne and he was into games, wore summer seersucker suits since he was a kid when his mother made him. Shorts and t-shirts were for the working class like me. When it was over he said that I didn’t need to cut him off and pretend like we were nothing but I did have to. Typical Aries. He drank boatloads of imported beer, went to bars where beautiful… Read more »

My first defacto was an Aries 10yesrs older than me – he was a man child who had a deep romantic streak had been a 70s punk kid making underground movies and in a band (a dangerous thing to do in Brisbane in those days….) He had none of the typical male traits but if pushed would knee jerk – neighbour would wake and put the radio on before work – couldn’t handle this so instead of talking just put speakers in the windows at 7am and started blasting or we would have a fight and he would find my… Read more »

Never dated one (I think), but I had an Aries housemate for the last half of July, and she was fierce! Ex-pro athlete, ran for an hour and a half every day, lived almost entirely on buckwheat, refused to use the tub in favor of a cold shower with the hose, interrupted every dating/relationship conversation within two minutes with a “yes yes but how was the sex?” She would periodically scream in Bulgarian on the phone to her contractor for twenty minutes at a time. She doesn’t date. She has one night stands and a ltfwb who flies her around… Read more »

Yes! She’d make a big pot once a week and eat a bowl with soy milk for breakfast and with spices for lunch. Once she made tomato avocado salad and once she ate a bowl of beans that I made. Some earl grey tea, and that’s it! 12hr nursing shifts on that too, and in her late 50s. I don’t know what her exact bday is, but maybe she’s getting hit by Uranus? It doesn’t seem sustainable at all to me, but I guess it works if you’re an Aries, maybe?

Buckwheat has more protein than rice, wheat, millet or corn and is high in the essential amino acids lysine and arginine, plus it is G/F.

be careful of too much phosphorus from eating buckwheat all the time. 🙁 It can leach calcium from your bones.

Maybe it’s my Libra Venus / Moon, but I tend to attract a lot of them. “Another bloody Aries,” I say to myself when yet another appears in my life. My most Aries-Aries had Aries Sun exact Aries Mercury in his first house. First sentence from him on our first date : “I’m an award-winning photographer.”

Ok, so we are all familiar now with Mars Marks – but what about Neptune Knob or Fish Forehead? These are permanent lumps on foreheads from continually bumping into glass doors or windows. I know 3 people other than myself who have Neptune on the ascendant or Pisces Moon who have such permanent lumps.

My best aries affair began when he delivered a refrigerator and we fucked in the kitchen. We became lovers and he would climb in my bedroom window every morning to ‘wake me’ (and him) before going off to surf with his mates. We broke up when he went to Antarctica and ended up unable to work for 3 months there, because he caught a helicopter (with his bare hands) as it crashed into the ship’s deck in order to save another crew member (the landing things slewed off his arms and he managed to tip it enough to knock it… Read more »

weird story time. A disclaimer, I was on rebound from a psycho ex, and I was trying out ‘casual dating’.

She had a best friend who was a gay guy. Their relationship was very weird and codependent. She made out him with when bored and/or drunk. And, oh, did I mention, she was in seminary school to become a Lutheran priest. I guess she… Read more »

Man meets woman. He introduces himself as ‘Bo’. She thinks it’s strange that he’s named ‘Rainbow’, but leaves that at the door and takes him on. He dances like nothing else….Fabulous streamlined suits, nonchalant rings (known as his armour), and his trademark white, CRISP, sneakers. They flash brightly with his clean, sunny smile. Everywhere they go he has the best time laughing with the ladies. There is always at least one who fawns over his sneakers, and within minutes he’s best pals (naturally), with any man nearby. In a fast club in London, he told a Leo that she was… Read more »

Once I dated an Aries who bodily lifted a pony into the back of his van to deliver to me as a present.

Seriously, I could go into his more traditional Aries elements (seat-of-your-pants home improvement? Totally. Have tools, have random stuff that can be cobbled together into a scaffold – go!), but the pony tops everything.
