Let’s start with a disclaimer: you might not like what you hear. ” The Aries man has a very specific, grand and demanding vision for his ultimate relationship.
In life, he orders everything customized to his tastes, and those tastes are very particular.
He may not subconsciously realize that human beings, imbued with things like personalities and free will, can’t conform to his fantasies on demand.
When he finds that, he gives it every ounce of his being. Even if he’s dating multiple women when you meet, he’ll just tell you outright. To this independent sign, bachelorhood is a cherished prize.
He turns off the selfish switch and pours on the giving. The Aries man is great at either having lots of sex with lots of different people, or being completed devoted to one woman. He’s too impatient to master the finer points of courtship. Although it may seem crude, his open-book policy can actually create a space of greater trust. It’s his ticket to freedom, adventure, unlimited expression—his access to feeling truly alive.
Besides, it’s not like Aries thinks relationships are the be-all end-all of life. He’ll never trade it in unless he truly believes a relationship will provide all those treasures and more.
What he needs is sort of contradictory: a relationship that gives him ultimate security full freedom to roam.
The Aries man is deeply driven by a fear of abandonment, so that should never be an issue between you.
Once that’s secured, he feels safe to spread his arms wide and pull life to him. We know tons of Aries men who are in long-term relationships, even married, but live in separate homes from their partners.
He wants to live life like it’s a huge playground—more like a carnival fairground—where he can wander, explore, win you stuffed animals, and enjoy a freak show or two. There’s a different set of rules, or perhaps none at all, which is perfect because that means he gets to make them. If you want to be with Aries for the long haul, you’ll have to embrace his chosen lifestyle. Some even have open relationships, or some need that requires an “understanding” between you.
We can’t help but mention Aries Hugh Hefner again, who lives at the Playboy Mansion surrounded by half-naked centerfold models all day. One bi-curious Aries man agreed to marry his longtime girlfriend, but she had to allow him to have one “boys’ night” where he cuddled or made out with a man.
How she put up with it, we don’t know—in this case, he threw a fit and threatened to walk unless he got his way. If what’s good for the Aries goose ain’t good for the gander, he’d sooner fly away than change his migratory habits.
