An Aries woman is strong and independent and won’t put up with any BS. That’s why there are a few qualities that our man needs to have if we want our relationship to last. Our standards aren’t unrealistic or too lofty, but we do expect them to be met. After all, an Aries would never put up with any of these things:

  1. Being bossed around. Aries are stubborn. If our man orders us around, we’ll refuse to do as he says just to spite him. We don’t want him wrongly assuming that he’s in charge of us. He isn’t. We’re our own boss.
  2. Being ignored. We don’t need to be the center of attention constantly. However, we hate to be ignored. If our man stares at his phone while we’re trying to talk to him, or doesn’t return our messages in a timely manner, we’re not going to stick around. We want to be heard.
  3. Excessive crying. We don’t mind men who are in touch with their feelings—unless they need a shoulder to cry on daily. We always try to act strong, so we don’t want a man who comes across as weak.
  4. Predictability. We’re nothing if we’re not spontaneous. That’s why we don’t want to date a dull man who drives us to the same restaurant every weekend. We want someone to surprise us with a trip across the country. The crazier, the better.
  5. Doing nothing. We like to get up and move around. We don’t mind watching Netflix on weekdays, but on weekends, we want to go out and do something fun. That’s why we need a man who isn’t afraid to go out with us and have a good time.
  6. Disrespectful comments. Some women can put up with disrespectful comments, but we certainly won’t. We’re blunt, which means we’ll talk back to you as soon as you say something we don’t like. Then the relationship will be as good as over.
  7. Constant complaining. We want to date a man who enjoys living life. We don’t want to be stuck with someone who’s always moping about how horrible his life is. It’s a real downer, and we don’t want his negative attitude to rub off on us.
  8. Waiting around. We’re not the most patient of the signs. If we’re supposed to meet a man for dinner at six, he better arrive at six. We don’t want to be stuck alone, wondering when he’ll decide to show. We don’t have time for that nonsense.
  9. Refusing to compromise. We love to get our way, so we might throw a fit when that doesn’t happen. Of course, we understand that relationships require compromise, which is why we’ll settle for meeting our man in the middle. But if he won’t compromise, we’ll have too many fights to stay together.
  10. Being fake. We don’t understand why anyone would pretend to be someone they’re not. If a man lies to us about his job, his relationship status, or his hobbies, then we won’t want anything to do with him. We need a man who’s honest.
