The eleventh sign of the zodiac is undoubtedly one of the most difficult to understand signs. Curious, truthful, just, imaginative and innovative, yet cold, detached, unpredictable and with a tendency to get stuck in their head. People born under Aquarius are usually unconventional and progressive thinkers who are always concerned about humanity, the world and how can they make it a better place.
In love life, the rebellious Aquarius does not follow rules and they always do it their way or no way at all. These individuals will never settle for a partner who restricts them in any way, because they need their free time to be themselves. In order to have a successful relationship with an Aquarius, there are some things you need to know. Whether you're yet to go on your first date or you're already in relationship, here are 9 secrets that will help you better understand the Aquarius eminent personalities and swipe your Aquarius off their feet.
Aquarius Needs to be Your Friend First
It should go without saying that the friendly Aquarius prefers to be your friend first before you start something bigger. They will not start a relationship before they feel like a close friend to you. And about the stereotype which you have probably heard, that Aquarians are cold and distant, that is not entirely true. When they get comfortable as much as they want to be and build a connection with a person, they love truly and in vast amounts: in much bigger amounts than you can imagine. Be careful, though, they will need some time to open up to you, because they want to be sure that you're their soulmate, so patience is of the essence.
Aquarius Wants Someone Who Stimulates Them Intellectually
Aquarius will never settle for someone who doesn't feed their intellectual cravings. Someone who does that is someone who makes their heart skip a beat. It's no secret that Aquarius are curious knowledge seekers, so naturally, they would like to have someone to share their intellectual discoveries with and someone they can learn from. Visiting a museum, watching a documentary or simply talking about something more serious than an ordinary chit-chat are just a few awesome date ideas that can make your Aquarius extremely happy.
Aquarius Wants to Know It All
Truly, deeply, genuinely, Aquarius always wants to know everything about their partner, even if they are not asking for it directly. Although it's not easy to keep their curiosity in check, Aquarius can sometimes appear as indifferent while there's a fire raging in them. Their detailed and specific mind wants to know how everything works, especially their partner's mind. Whether it's showing or not, be sure that your Aquarius partner is constantly trying to "figure you out", as it's the only way they can be sure of something.
Aquarius Wants Freedom
As a big individualist, Aquarius dances to their own rhythm and creates their own rules in life. In a romantic relationship, they seek a lover who will grant them all the freedom they want in order to be who they really are. These bright minded individuals are full of ideas and will probably get the weirdest desires for things to do and they need a partner who won't judge them or try to stop them. Only when they have a partner who shares the same intellectual curiosity or at least understands theirs Aquarius will be at peace and truly fulfilled.
Aquarius Has an Open Mind
The independence lover is not restricted by any rules and they always prefer to rely upon their own thoughts and conclusions. Other people's opinion mean nothing to them when it comes to making a conclusion. They like to think through everything themselves. Aquarius may initially have troubles accepting something they have never dealt with, but they will absolutely accept literally anyone and anything. That makes them one of the best people you'll ever going to meet.
Aquarius Doesn't Like Drama
If you thought that Aquarius will be okay with you being a drama queen, think again. These rational individuals are problem solvers and innovative thinkers, so they naturally are not a fan of drama and meaningless talks. Rumors, gossips, small talk and nonsense is not of their interest. An innovative idea, a creative solution and thinking outside the box is something that can get their attention in a blink of an eye. So, when you're with an Aquarius, you better think hard what you're going to talk about unless you want them to take off.
Aquarius Could Use Some Warmth
As a cold and detached zodiac sign, Aquarius could really use a partner who will provide them with some warmth. They are not skilled in the art of intimacy. They would much rather analyze and rationalize everything in their head than live in the moment. To help them be a better, warmer person, you will need to bring the warmth in the relationship and help them learn a little about intimacy. Getting close to an Aquarius will be a difficult task, but it sure isn't impossible (especially if you're an Aries, Gemini or Sagittarius).
Aquarius Does a Lot of Overthinking
One of the worst traits of Aquarius is their tendency to get stuck in their own head and overthink the most meaningless and most irrelevant things. They often create problems when they are none. Moreover, they can get anxious and stressed as a consequence of too much overthinking. Aquarius can completely get disconnected from themselves physically and that will remain so until their mind is at peace. No matter how much you'd like to help them by pointing out their absence, try to keep that for yourself not only to avoid conflicts, but also because they are the only person that can help themselves.
Aquarius Is Constantly Changing
After some time together, you may notice that your Aquarius partner feels like a completely different person than the one you met years ago. As a progressive sign, Aquarius is constantly expanding their mind, learning new things, gathering new skills and simply growing as a person. You should know that this process is never ending for Aquarius. What they would like the most is to see you growing as well. However, don't try to keep up with an Aquarius unless you're an Aquarius yourself, because you'll only get frustrated by your unsuccessful attempt. If you hate changes, you better don't go further than your first date.
