The Aries Man
The Aries man: Love, Sex, Friendship, Style
The Aries Man
A new day dawns, bright and early, but not nearly early enough for the Aries man. He’s been up hours before the dawn, working out a fresh approach with his personal trainer at the gym, beginning a new project at the office, or starting a novel initiative with the local neighborhood watch.
Eager for the brand new day, pawing impatiently at the ground, he’ll always be the first to head-butt his way in to new ground. Charismatic and chock full of leadership skills, the Aries man is unafraid to explore the unknown. He is a dynamo of energy and magnetism, the Pied Piper of his people, whether they be friends, family or colleagues.
Symbolized by the Ram, the Aries man is impulsive, stubborn, and a force of nature. He has the inner strength to take on the entire universe, and to be honest, he’ll probably win. You don’t really want to cross an Aries. His vitality, eagerness, and aggression will eventually wear everyone but the most stalwart down.
Arguments are the norm with an Aries man, so don’t be overly upset if they become regular occurrences. Spirited discussions and going head to head at the pub over the most mundane or high brow topics are an Arian’s idea of a good time out. You’d be hard pressed to have the last word in any contention with an Aries man, so the best approach is to agree to disagree from the outset.
Love, Sex, Romance, and Relationships with an Aries Man
Who doesn’t secretly love a bad boy? The Aries man is very good at being very bad, which makes him rather popular with the ladies. Some examples of this are Aries hell-raisers Marlon Brando, Russell Crowe, and Ewan McGregor. Passionate and playful, love is about conquest for the Aries man. Ruled by Mars, the god of war, he approaches love like a battle, and like most of the battles he selects to fight, the Aries man will usually win. His chosen weapons are a killer smile, flirtatious compliments, and that irresistible aura of danger that surrounds him.
He believes in ideal love and the perfect partner, and will wait until he finds it and them. When he discovers his ideal partner, he falls in love immediately and he won’t take no for an answer, no matter how unavailable that person is. The thrill of the chase is what fires the Ram up, and no challenge is ever insurmountable for the Aries man. In fact, the more difficult the trial, the greater his nostrils flare in anticipation. After all, the best victories are over an equally matched or better-equipped foe.
If you have an Aries man for a lover, watch out for fireworks in the bedroom! A sensual, hungry lover, he is demanding, with a high libido. It’s quite an adventure to be with an Arian. Erotic and impudent, the Ram will take you to new sexual heights. Just be sure that both of you can sustain the first initial brush with fire. An Aries’ passion, although brilliant, can burn too high, too fast, turning into ashes after a very short period. It isn’t hard to catch the attention of an Aries man – the real challenge is to hold on to this charging, bucking Ram of a man.
When you have caught him, however, you will find that beneath the commanding, brash appearance, the Aries man is surprisingly sensitive when in a committed relationship. Compromise comes quite easily to him, as long as both parties are giving an equal amount of leeway. Sparks will fly, as with all Fire signs, but this can serve to keep the relationship alive and kicking.
Perfect partners for Aries men are as strong and argumentative as he is, fighting his fire with their own, and are brave enough to stand up to him. He also needs someone who can understand his inner sensitivity, and who will support him in all the new endeavors he begins. For better or for worse, through hell and high water, the Aries man takes commitment and his vows seriously and will be a loyal and devoted partner.
He is generally considered most compatible with Leo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. See also Sun sign compatibility. However, there is a lot more to compatibility than only the comparison of the Sun signs. For example, how do your Venus signs compare? Find out Venus signs here.

Understanding Aries Men
The high-energy Aries man is always up for a challenge in both his personal and professional lives. New tasks, lost causes – bring them on and this man will attack them with unparalleled enthusiasm. Patience is not a virtue of the Aries man and he quickly tires of any project that moves too slowly, however.
Sometimes compared to the infamous windmill charging Don Quixote, the Aries man will often favor optimism over reality.
Money & the Aries Man
Characteristically impulsive, this man will buy what he wants, but doesn’t always need. This trait may seem frivolous to some, and perhaps it is, but the Aries man can also be impressively intuitive and cautious with his investments. This man’s portfolio will contain an even balance of risk and stability – he can be a bit reckless, but knows how to exercise caution.
The Aries man isn’t as concerned about money as he is about maintaining his freedom and independence. However, if he feels that he needs money in order to gain these things, then he will go after it.
Fashion & the Aries Man
Passion and excitement are reflected in the color red, so it’s an obvious choice to represent the Aries man. You’ll not see him wear a suit of red (except at Christmas, maybe), but don’t be surprised to have him sporting a bright crimson shirt as part of his casual attire.
Never shying away from trendy styles, this man enjoys being the first with new fashions and will be considered a trendsetter by his friends.
Relationships & the Aries Man
The Aries man is excited by new places and new friends. He enjoys meeting people, engaging in quick-witted dialogue, and offering up the occasional tall tale.
As excellent a conversationalist as the Aries man can be, he may be found lacking in discretion and tact. Don’t ask this man a question if you’re not ready for an honest answer because he tells it like it is, without regard for its consequence. This trait has strangers finding him somewhat aggressive and maybe even a little bossy.
When it comes to advice, the Aries man is quick to give, but not so eager to receive. Aries men love to be “in the know”, and the first to know as well!
Romance & the Aries Man
You’ll not find a partner as passionate as the Aries man. Nor will you find one quite so adventurous and ready to test uncharted waters. A word of caution to prospective partners: the Aries man needs someone to match his romantic enthusiasm and will become bored if he’s not kept on his toes.
The man has a unique capacity to handle grief more quickly than others and this ability to move on from a failed relationship can make him seem aloof or even callous to some.
The Aries man enjoys the chase, so don’t make it too easy for him.
Health & the Aries Man
High energy necessitates a healthy diet and exercise which the Aries man usually maintains. When embarrassed, or excited, he will quickly become red-faced – this man’s dominant color.
Migraines, head congestion, and sinus conditions are a normal part of this gentleman’s life, so don’t take it personally when he says that you give him a headache.
Career & the Aries Man
A natural leader, the Aries man enjoys the challenge of new projects and prefers giving direction to receiving it. Aries men’s strong characters make them independent go-getters who will gladly give up their desks for an outside position.
With a dislike for repetitive tasks, the Aries man may be found in one of these professions: doctor, dentist, lawyer, stock broker, or professional athlete.
The Aries man has both ambition and a spirit for adventure, making him an ideal entrepreneur.
