Dating A Pisces Man: 10 Things You Should Know

Selfless and caring, Pisces men make wonderful boyfriends. This sign is in touch with their feelings and incredibly considerate of their loved ones. But nobody is perfect, and Pisces men also have some more challenging traits to deal with as well. Read on to find out what you need to know before you start dating a Pisces man.

  1. He’s not the best leader. Pisces men aren’t natural leaders. Though everyone is different, this sign tends not to be the best at taking the lead. When it comes to dating, Pisces men often prefer to have someone else call the shots while they sit in the passenger seat. That’s why this sign is often a good match for signs that do like to take on that leadership role within a relationship.
  2. He can be unreliable. Though they often have the best intentions, Pisces men can be unreliable. That’s because they don’t plan ahead. They assume everything will work out on its own and they don’t anticipate running into hurdles. So they often cancel at the last minute or are late.
  3. He falls in love quickly. An emotional and sensitive water sign, Pisces men tend to fall in love quickly. When they meet someone they have a connection with, their emotions just take over. While this is good news for someone who’s in a rush to find the one, many people can also find it overwhelming. That’s why it’s important to set clear boundaries with this sign so things don’t become too intense.
  4. He can be passive-aggressive. Pisces men are not often aggressive, but they can be quite passive-aggressive. This sign often holds grudges for a while, forgiving people to their face but still harboring resentment inside. He won’t always tell you that he’s annoyed, but he will make faces and confusing comments to let you know how he feels.
  5. He’s not street smart. Generally, Pisces men are kind and decent people, so they expect everyone else to be the same. This can lead them to being slightly gullible. They always look for the good in people and sometimes ignore the red flags. When you’re dating them, it can be frustrating to watch them be deceived.
  6. He can’t stand to see his loved ones in pain. An empathic sign, Pisces hates seeing his loved ones hurting. If you’re important to him, he’ll always want to see you thriving. When things aren’t good with his partner, he’ll always try and help. Again, you might need to establish firm boundaries if his attempts to help become too much.
  7. He can have major mood swings. Pisces is one of the most positive signs in the zodiac, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to mood swings. In fact, this sign is prone to his cranky or sad days. That’s because he feels everything so strongly and is ruled by his heart rather than his head. Sometimes, all you can do is give him space.
  8. He lives in the past rather than the future. Often, Pisces men spend a lot of time dwelling on the past. It can be difficult to move on from past problems because they hold grudges and still replay what happened long after it’s finished. They tend not to plan ahead for the future, instead going over past good and bad times again and again.
  9. He cares about the needs of others over his own. One of the best things about Pisces men is that they’re among the most selfless in the zodiac. It’s in his nature to look out for others, considering their feelings before his own. The only downside is that he can sometimes neglect self-care as a result of caring too much about the needs of others. When dating a Pisces man, don’t be afraid to pamper him once and a while. Remind him that he’s important too!
  10. He values an emotional connection over a physical one. Pisces men wear their hearts on their sleeves. This sign is often looking for an emotional connection with someone new, rather than a physical one. While he might have one night stands, that’s not often the case with this sign. Don’t be surprised if it takes him a while to want to get physical with you after you just start dating. There are other parts of the relationship that are more important to him, like emotional bonding.
