Things You Should Know Before Dating An Aries

An Aries woman is unlike anyone else you’ve ever dated. We’re intense, complicated, tough, spontaneous, and we’re often told to slow down. More times than we like, we’ve scared people away due to our impulsive and sometimes aggressive nature. But we’re also hilarious, and we know how to have fun. We defend the people we love, and we run deep. We may not be the easiest people to date, but we promise it’s worth it. Here’s what you should know if you’re brave enough to go there:

  1. We get bored, fast.The same old routine just isn’t going to cut it for an Aries. We need to be stimulated, we need excitement, and we crave adventure. We often find ourselves wanting more, and it’s rare that we find someone who can keep up with us. If you can’t keep us on our toes with intelligent conversation, inspire and challenge us, or keep up with our plans, we’re likely going to move on.
  2. We’re brutally honest.We’re not really ones to sugarcoat anything. We say it like it is, and we can’t help it.
  3. We need to be in control.We’re not looking to be someone’s puppet, but rather, we want to be the one to take the lead. We have no problem planning our weekend getaways, telling you how to do things, and doing things for ourselves. And for many men, this is intimidating.
  4. Patience is not our forte.If we’ve had an argument, you can guarantee we need to talk about it NOW. If there’s something we really want to do, you can bet that we’ll be doing it ASAP. And if you aren’t making a move, we’re moving on.
  5. We’re independent.We value independence. We appreciate our alone time, we don’t want to be smothered and we’re okay with doing some things for ourselves. But unfortunately, our independence sometimes makes men feel like they’re not needed or we’re pushing them away.
  6. We’re stubborn as hell.We are rams, after all.
  7. We will never find someone as loyal as us. We’re loyal to a fault. You never have to worry about an Aries so much as flirting with another man, let alone cheating. We’ll defend someone we love until the end, we’ll put up with a little more than we should and we’ll forever be hurt by those who can’t give us the same kind of loyalty.
  8. We’re competitive.A little friendly competition never hurt anyone. We can turn anything into a contest, and we’re determined to win it. No matter the argument, we want to be right. We’re always up for a challenge, and we hate losing.
  9. We’re quick-witted.We can banter for hours and have a comeback for everything. We’ll make you laugh, we’ll make you think, and we’ll keep you on your toes. If you can’t keep up, we lose interest fast.
  10. We’re adrenaline junkies.We’re that person that’s always down for everything. We never say no to that spontaneous road trip, we’re ready to try anything, and we’re pretty much fearless. Dating us is exciting and exhausting all at the same time.
  11. We get jealous. But only because we love you.
  12. We’re a little… intense.We’re just giant bundles of energy. We talk loud, we talk fast, and we have passion pouring out of us. Some people find us a little aggressive and overbearing, but we swear we’re just excited.
  13. We’ll love the hell out of you.We fall hard, deep and passionately. We promise that no one will ever love you like us.
  14. We have a softer side.There’s a lot more to us than our tough exteriors. We’re deep, sensitive, complicated individuals. We may be intense, tough, independent and stubborn, but deep down, we just want to love and be loved.
