I am a Scandinavian woman interested in the compatibility of different astrological signs.


Aquarius: January 21–February 18

Aquarians are known to be the new millennium's leaders of all astrological signs. People who are born under this astrological sign tend to be the most up-and-coming trendsetters of the future. Some famous Aquarians include Thomas Edison, Matt Dillon, Jennifer Aniston, Christie Brinkley, and Copernicus

Aquarians sometimes suddenly feel the pressure to change personally, especially when it comes to their personal values and the things that will typically make them happy.

Typically, Aquarians are known to think of things all the time because they prefer that their minds work hard every single day. This is also the reason why people who are inventors and trailblazers are usually born under this astrological sign.

They have the passion to think of things that will help them grow as a person and as an individual in this world today. Pleasure and pain can both be experienced by Aquarians because of their ability to think on different levels mentally.

Aquarians love to be involved in organizations that will let them help other people who are in need. The good thing about people who are born under this astrological sign is that they tend to keep their emotional feelings at ease to avoid affecting the programs that they are involved in.

Aquarians are known to be very amiable and outgoing, which makes people attracted to them. They tend to gain more friends, and these people will surely experience how loyal an Aquarian can be.

Major Traits of an Aquarius

  • Intelligence: An Aquarian is usually on the lookout for gems of wisdom. They are typically observant of the people around them. This is the reason why they can often gather different information about the people surrounding them.
  • Can be very direct: They have the ability to ignore their emotions and speak their minds to the people around them. Sometimes their attitude can hurt other people's feelings, but this is usually not their intention.
  • Emotionally detached: Aquarians tend to be very detached from the feelings that they have, but this doesn't mean that they are insensitive and unemotional. They just have the tendency not to trust their feelings that much, and their ideas are more important than their emotional feelings.
  • Firm in their opinions: At times, whenever someone doesn't agree with what an Aquarian has in mind, they tend to get hurt. But the good news is that they are driven intellectually and not emotionally. This is why they can instantly forgive and forget everything.
  • Often overanalyze themselves: Sometimes Aquarians wonder why they are emotionally different from other people. They tend to think that something might be missing in them. This is also the reason why most of them stay single or unattached for a long period of time. This can sometimes lead to an Aquarian feeling like they are incapable of having a relationship. It can also make them wonder about their existence in this world. Luckily, they tend to regain their self-esteem instantly because they know how special they are in this world.
  • Amiable and exciting: They are also very adventurous, smart, and funny whenever they are around someone that they like.
  • Lack of envy: You will never catch them being jealous or clingy. They are very unpredictable and have a thing for surprises.

Best Careers for an Aquarius

Most Aquarians love to do something that makes them feel useful. As a matter of fact, they want to be as useful as possible with everything that they do. This makes people feel amazed with them as a result. They are not likely to be content with any career that is mundane or repetitive. Most of the people who are born under Aquarius are progressive thinkers, which is why they tend to form great theories and ideas. They are also great at researching things that will help them in every aspect of their lives. Here are some jobs that an Aquarian would be a good fit in.

  • Political activist: Aquarians always like to have a cause to fight for. Working for a political cause can keep them engaged and make them feel like they are helping the greater good. They can become really invested in whatever cause they helping with.
  • Social Worker: Water bearers genuinely care for people and have a strong desire to help them. Working as a social worker allows them to do this while remaining fairly independent. They don't get rattled emotionally very easily, so they could perform very well in this career.
  • Aid Worker: This job allows an Aquarian to really make a difference by helping others and improving lives. This role often sees a lot of travel, and an Aquarian can enjoy the frequent change of environments.
  • Mediator: Folks with the Aquarius sign are well-suited to being objective and persuasive when it comes to solving problems between two parties. They are often determined to set things right and have the best interests in mind for everyone involved.
  • Project Manager: Aquarians love to come up with new ideas and plan things out. They are skilled at organizing a team and creating initiatives to make projects succeed.

Attracting an Aquarian

  • Aquarians tend to join verbal battles for fun and engage in conversations that are not too deep. But for you to be able to understand them, you need to be able to stimulate their inner minds. You should know that their brain is always craving exercise, and that is why, when conversing with them, it is ideal to capture their attention first.
  • One of the key factors needed to attract an Aquarian is to have the time to communicate. If you are not really into talking for hours, then you might want to look for a different person. You need to be compatible in communication for an Aquarian to be attracted to you.
  • Aquarians love going out, and they love being adventurous once in a while. If you are willing to pursue an Aquarian, then make sure to think of different trips and adventures for an Aquarian to enjoy your company.
  • If you are having a hard time thinking of nice things to do, then asking an Aquarian to plan your trip would definitely be ideal. You will be surprised at how they plan everything instantly. Make sure you are flexible because Aquarians tend to change their plans in an instant.
  • If you are trying to attract an Aquarian, make sure to avoid complaining and nagging. They hate negativity when conversing.

Dating an Aquarius Man

Here are some things to keep in mind when you want to start a romantic relationship with an Aquarius man.

  • They look at relationships as something playful. They can be calculating when deciding the time and place to flirt.
  • Don't expect him to show affection in traditional ways. You can expect more exotic date ideas from him.
  • Mental stimulation is the best way to attract him. You can enchant him with mind games. Doing so will make him more passionate toward you.
  • The biggest trait they are attracted to is intelligence. They will likely be attracted to anyone that they feel understands all their complexities.
  • It can be a bit challenging for them to commit to a relationship. However, they will happily settle down if they've found the right person. They will be clearly unhappy in a relationship that is not satisfying them.
  • An Aquarius man treasures his independence. You must make it clear that you are not threatening it.

Dating an Aquarius Woman

Here are some tips regarding being in a relationship with an Aquarius woman.

  • They can be aloof at times. They may seem distant even when they are next to you.
  • They tend to focus more on a conceptual relationship than what is at the present. They like to imagine and plan what a relationship can be in the future.
  • They may be capable of having a long-distance relationship, but expect frequent messages and texts late at night.
  • They may cool down in a relationship once a daily routine or repetition sets in.
  • Aquarius women are very independent. They don't like to be set in one place for very long. Be sure to give them space when necessary.
  • Communication is very important to them. Be sure to reach out to them often.
  • They like to try new things with their partners.

Compatibility With an Aquarius

Here are some astrological signs that work well or poorly with Aquarius.

Signs That Get Along with Aquarius

  • Gemini: People of this sign tend to enjoy surprises and changes. Geminis tend to be easygoing and are willing to go along with any idea an Aquarian comes up with. These two signs have a strong romantic connection, so there is a possibility of developing a strong relationship.
  • Aries: Folks with this astrological sign have a love for adventure and have a diverse set of interests. Their imaginative character can compliment an Aquarian's passionate character. The drawback in a relationship is that Aries like to lead while Aquarians do not like to follow.
  • Libra: Libras tend to join an Aquarian to satisfy their needs for the arts. This pair is the type that you can often find at parties. This pairing is effective as Libras tend to be oblivious to how stubborn an Aquarian can be.
  • Sagittarius: The imaginative mind of an Aquarian can be nurtured by the optimism of a Sagittarius. This pairing can be very passionate towards each other, but jealousy will rarely strike between them. There may be potential for them to grow apart since both sings allow each other to live as they like.

Signs That Don't Get Along with Aquarius

  • Pisces: People of this sign need affection, are sensitive, and like to be the center of attention. These traits can annoy an Aquarian, while a Pisces can see them as being unsympathetic.
  • Capricorn: A Capricorn likes to make detailed plans. This is something that an Aquarian might not have patience for. Capricorns are often more traditional and restricting, so they may not like the unique and independent personality of an Aquarian.
  • Cancer: An Aquarian can see people of this sign as being clingy, whiny, and having too many restrictions. A Cancer can see an Aquarian as lacking tact and being emotionally detached. Many of the traits of these two signs are complete opposites.
  • Taurus: An Aquarian and Taurus are both stubborn, and neither is willing to give up their beliefs or change their attitude. A Taurus is often focused on security and feels like keeping a tightly-knit family. An Aquarian treats the whole world like family, and they have little regard for their own security. A Taurus can often see an Aquarian as being careless.
  • Scorpio: People with this astrological sign are famous for being intense and for easily being jealous. An Aquarian can be very turned off by their jealousy and possessiveness.

tiya garg on June 18, 2020:

i truly agree with you i had researched a lot about the aquarians and i have seen all the values and thinking traits are almost matched to me as i am also an aquarian. i always thought why i am so different i always make people hurt even with no intentions but i always remained happy no matter how anybody hurt me or i hurt anybody else. i was happy as well as sad for my nature. but now i am very glad to know that i am an aqaurian and i am very special too .

well, i wanna say one more thing that every person is different and unique in its own way so don't get sad no matter whatever happens and just ignore it and try your best.

AQUA on March 15, 2020:


i think they r individuals, most Aqua do not

RealWinger on February 27, 2020:

Seriously I had the misfortune of working with five Aquarians out of a twenty person crew at a stupid pizza joint most of them old enough to have careers instead of working in fast food. Most of them are stuck up and make snide backstabbing comments about people and when around others will talk to each other about the other person in the room and think that their intentions aren't transparent. They will then act shocked when you use their tactics against them thinking you didn't even know what they were up to. They are also incredibly envious if they have any doubts about their level of intelligence in relation to yours or really any doubts in regards to how they measure up in any way. Always comparing themselves, petty and lying and putting others down. They are mean ugly people and perfect examples of the Dunning Kruger effect.

Real Aqua on January 11, 2020:

Aquas don't like shifty people. A lot of water signs and select earth signs like to sht test people. Instead of playing the game we will just observe you a few times until we out your idiocy for thinking you could fk us over. Then we just leave you in your misery.

Here's what we think of other signs.

Aquarius: The men can be misogynistic and the women are going to be all very different but direct and not give a fk inside regarding our opinions. Although evolved ones will at least have finesse. Strong distaste for rude and lying people. You will find the classy Amal and trashy Draya alike in this group. Dislike shiftiness. The women can be all intellect and no feeling but they are air so don't expect them to baby sit your drama. Often good with money but like to hide their wealth. Modest.

Pisces: Low key manipulative, insecure, a bit spacey, into the occult and can often be obsessed with tarot, witchcraft, and spiritual related things. Secret addictions. The men can be into weird fetishes.

Aries: Also don't give a fk but will tell you about it without finesse. True leaders who don't care what others think but can end up alone in relationships due to their vanity and cheating. Will stand up for their friends unconditionally (unlike conditional Scorpio loyalty). Both the men and women intimidate others with their confidence.

Taurus: The women are so uppity. They never smile. They are usually pretty but very petty and stereotypical gossipy, hateresque type females. Likes to put others down for fun. Can be sullen and obsessed with getting attention and compliments. Good with money but snobby and very nose in the air (Queen Elizabeth). Men can be overly flirtatious. Can become money obsessed (Bernie Maddoff).

Gemini: Fickilest sign of the zodiac. Very manipulative and great with word play and playing to human naivety. Not intelligent but can be cunning and give the impression of such. Will sell their soul to get ahead or get what they want and laugh at your bleeding stabbed in the back body (Trump, Pence).

Cancer: Manic depressives who will go through great lengths to ruin you if they fell the smallest of slight (Elon Musk). Great with money but cheap (Elon Musk). Great with technology. Can be clingy, childish, and relentlessly petty. Not good with air signs as great damage can occur from such a combination. Women very two faced and usually date very abusive men or men who take advantage of them.

Leo: Can be very generous with affection but loves to hear the sound of their own voice and constantly need ego stroking (JLO, Affleck). Both men and women are often manipulative. Can be cheap. Often marries up for money (men and women). Usually lazy in some areas of their life: work, relationships, or physical fitness if not all three! Ego stroking can be tiresome.

Can be cheaters but often the type to get caught. Horrid temper.

Virgo: Self-loathing. Overall just very weird and empty inside. Often have secret health ailments. Body dysmorphia. The women are disgustingly cruel and petty. Very similar to cancer except more calculating like a serial killer and less instantly emotional. The men are often secret perverts (Charlie Sheen).

Libra: Good looking people. Very insanely intelligent (the way Gemini wants to be). But also very manipulative. However, their manipulation is with charm and self-depreciation instead of malice like Virgo or Scorpio. Can be closeted or have issues with sexuality (Usher). Can be cheaters but usually regret it or do so due to them chosing unintelligent partners or those with low self-esteem (men and women).

Sagittarius: Rude and blunt women. Can be judgemental to cover insecurities. Very wanderlust and anti-commital. Likes to cheat. Men can be conservative on the outside but live very involved, superficial double lives of cheating and self indulgence.

Scorpio: Takes pleasure in others pain. Either loves you after years of sht tests or is plotting your revenge or posting all your dirty laundry on Instagram (too many examples won't waste your time). Likes pettiness for sport and entertainment. Loves talking about conspiracy theories. Loyal and good listener but murderous and psychotic when angry.

Capricorn: (Almost forgot them). Women are often dry in personality and humor. Can be very jealous of those with a better career, personality, or more money. Can be childish when annoyed. Can sometimes be good friends but may always be secretly comparing careers which doesn't really feel good as a friend. Very matter of fact like Aquarius but have more finesse. Often self loathing or pessimistic but not as mentally ill as Virgo.

S.John on January 09, 2020:

They say Sagittarius get all with Aquarians but I think it’s just our patience, humility and ambition to make things work that makes us PUT UP with them especially the women from my own experience they are self righteous people who are never wrong and very proud

Ivy Thairu on December 03, 2019:

Am a proud Aquarian!

sharon Lee Rosenhahn on November 07, 2019:

Well 53.5 year old Aquarian. Reading all this stuff on us made me realize the reasons for the shit I do. I over think, I have great ideas, I counsel others without a phd. I love my thinking, I'm creative and trust comes hard for me. We are very smart, hate liars, have morals and integrity is hard to find. I love being an Aquarian. I do believe heart aches are hard but we over come because of the logic we use on ourselves to accept and take the positive not the negative from it. I have over come so much hurt and bullshit from a narcissistic mother and I believe it's due to me being a very intellectual Aquarius. In fact I'm quite inclined in music, talents, mechanics, technician and so much more. I have been that one that can get an argument settled between two other people. Been told should be a doctor, lawyer, counselor and so much more. I help people all of the time. I've never been without a job. I've been single most of my life. Married long enough to have my kids in wedlock. Hate liars. Try to save the world. Very involved in effective letters to our government/White house. I truly believe we are too smart for our own good. I believe we intimidate people with our talents and insights. I'm good with it. Until you love yourself you are unable to love others. Perhaps loving ourselves makes us able to love. I know I have loved so hard I hurt harder. However God lifted me up, I listened and it worked out for the best. Gave me a better out look. I'm happy and proud to be an Aquarian. 99.999 percent of these I feel like someone is writing about me.

Aquarians are some of the most detached ppl Ive seen at least for me. I had a friend who was extremely calculated.

Great Article So Very True about the Aqua Woman. Excellent Writing & Research by the author

vickie on February 20, 2019:

I'm a Cancer but I like an Aquarius soooo yeah but I don't know how to keep the conversation rolling she like really hard to read sometimes. on January 18, 2019:

Im too loveable and love deeply this stuff on here is not accurate about aquarius . We just have big hearts and minds . I love me I'm awesome , beautiful , courageous, very special and unique . I love being an Aquarius.

Sonnia on December 19, 2018:

I am an aquarius woman. Most of what was said are generally reflective of who I am. I'm certainly not shallow, in fact, aquarians have far more depth to them than these articles portray.

When I'm in love, I show it mostly in what I do and will also verbalize my affection. I'm so annoyed at reading articles that protray us as not wanting commitment... if that were the case, then how could we be described as loyal and devoted among other adjectives? We are often times misunderstood. I'm a lover of commited relationships. I know exactly what I'm looking for, no, not a perfect guy... no such thing exists, but if my assessment of a guy indicates that he's not a place in his life to accept stability and commitment, then why the heck should i waste both our time? Simply move on to the next interview, yes, that's pretty much what you do when you're dating.

I'm definitely not a clingy woman or the one that overtly expresses jealousy, the latter is rare in occurrence. My take is that if after assessing the situation my jealousness has very little grounds, then why bother to create a scene with emotional outbursts which may end up in a sour situation? If I have to police a man because he constantly gives me good reasons to doubt his loyalty, then clearly there's something that he needs to work on. Consequently, after giving reasonable time to address those issues and he fails to, I'll just minus myself from the relationship simply because it's a fact that people have to change because they want to and not because you want them to. Making note of relationship red flags is a given in my book because that's how you know whether or not it's a good prospect.

No doubt I'm an adventurous woman...a few limits considering the major drawbacks to any given situation.

Random on November 17, 2018:

**Also, to Candace--- and anyone else confused about Aquarian behavior. We've spent our entire lives as students. Loving the world conciously and subconciously--examining the intricacies of human behavior, watching others interact with the space around them. We were born with high hopes for man, and as we walk through life, little by little we've been devastated by the actions of others. We understand altruism. Our brains work on that level. Because of that, we are able to identify inconsistencies in speech and action. The first several breaches of love are forgiven, but not forgotten unless the violations cease. If it carries on, we will depart without feeling the need to communicate that with you, determining that you are unreachable, and carrying on progressively through life. We dont deal with lies or any other damaging character flaws, unless on the bottom line, you are atleast, self aware about their potential impact on others. If you've had five people, you've determined to be Aquarian, (or any other sign or combo of signs, for that matter) that have violated what you view as loyalty and trust, consider that the common denominator may not be them, but rather, you.

aquarius born 3 February. Soms true points here

elle64 (author) from Scandinavia on May 30, 2018:

Thankyou for stopping by.You have some good points

Stackst on May 30, 2018:

I’m a mid 20s Aquarius female married to a Capricorn female. Honestly never thought I’d get with another cap because the first one I dated was a fucking lying bitch (or so I thought) either way she never understood me or knew how to love me. With my current wife we have a lot of disagreements but it really stemmed from her not beleiving me and thinking I was a cheater in the beginning of the relationship. Of course I was single and I’m friendly so I had a lot of girls I was talking to but soon as my wife and I have started talking I cut them all off. Of course people are going to hit you up but it’s how you react to the situation that matters and she automatically assumed I was entertaining them (which she was 100% wrong). Moral of my story is you don’t know your Aquarius til you sit them down and have a heart to heart. Honestly. We may seem detached, but that’s only for the purpose of having a clear mind. When it comes to something we are truly interested in, we are fully there. When you start to accuse us we get deterred because we feel attacked and it’s like poison, we don’t want it. Seriously we are down to earth and if you’re showing us I’m the right way that you care about getting to know us, taking your time and UNDERSTANDING us, you usually have our full attention. Understanding is key though. We are very different from the average person.

ScorpioMan on May 20, 2018:

I'm a Scorpio man, deeply in love with an Aquarius woman. She's with the wrong person at the moment, and she knows it...but only god knows how long it will take for her resentment to build up to the point of leaving him.

Jordan on May 14, 2018:

Thank you !!!

Chelsey on April 10, 2018:

I see a lot of people on here talking poorly about how they need to avoid Aquarians in the dating field. I, myself, am an Aquarian. I live up to the general stereotype. Something to keep in mind, we HATE feeling locked down, not that we don't want to commit but we DO NOT want to feel trapped, obligated or smothered. As for being shallow, I can say that is far from the truth in the looks department, but it hits the nail on the head when it comes to communication and what we find interesting. I was engaged to a man when I was younger, he was a professional athlete, built like a Greek god and so handsome (recognizing someone is attractive doesn't make you shallow). We broke up because he was about as deep as a puddle, I had better conversations with his dog than I did with him and he was way possessive. On the flip side I have also been in relationships with men who may not have been conventionally handsome but they were great conversationalists, made me think and kept me on my toes. I am now married, and I will tell you our biggest struggle is feeling like I'm in a rut and communication. These are both traits of Aquarians. I want to talk about bigger things than what went on at work and I also get the urge to just fly away (with him of course) frequently. I love my job but I am so ready for a change of pace. I really like change in my environment, daily routine, impulsive hair choices, etc. But change in terms of big commitments are scary and THEY HACE TO BE THE AQUARIANS CHOICE. If you try to manipulate them or move too quickly they are going to be gone out of that relationship so fast! However, I still maintain decent relationships with all my exs. Some are my husband and I's friends. Once I connect with someone that connection is there. So jealous partners do not do well with us. I may choose to distance myself from people but I never stop caring. That's usually the whole mind over heart thing Aquarians do. We can logically see something ourselves even if our heart sometimes tells us something different. Someone who doesn't like adventurous type change or spontaneous trips across country, you may be looking in the wrong spot. Also, the best thing you can do is let your Aquarian fly, they will come back but only if it is their choice.

David on January 26, 2018:

I have read the description and agree. It describes a women that I was seeing to a tee. They are quick to turn off when they feel they can't love you past certain issues. I think they are very shallow people. Maybe not all but the one I met sure seems to be. It's hard to let go but if you don't your doomed to be hurt over and over .

Chris grey on January 17, 2018:

As an aquarius its tough handling emotions.

Tayte Jonez on January 12, 2018:

my feelings are very hurt and I feel confused and lost. I've been talking to an Aquarius I met back in November and we met online. It started out just talking but within a week he told me out of no where that he loved me. It took me almost a month to start saying it back although I felt it inside. We talk on the phone for hours. We video chat for hours. We share our goals and dreams. He is everything I've always wanted. I love him dearly. We have never met , nor have we ever touched, but I feel his love for me and I know he feels mine. Yesterday I missed his call...two calls. I was at work, but he and I always talk throughout the whole day no matter what we are doing. I couldn't take the call because I was in a different department. Last night, after ignoring over 20 calls from me he finally answered and said we should just be friends because of our distance. He said we shouldn't have fallen in love so soon. I told him it was already too late to break it off with me without hurting me, but he thinks it's not too late to make a clean break because we never met. That hurts. It's like he's telling me his love for me wasn't real. The love inside of me is what causes me to hurt behind him although we have never met physically. The love is already there. I don't need to touch him to love him. I love him now. This morning, I texted him as usual and I said have a good day without all the baby this and baby that. He texted back and said "U2". That made me sad. He's never that short with me. But just as I was sad, he texted back "You know you still my baby, right?" My heart dropped. Is this a game he's playing with me? I'm hurting behind the choice he made last night, but today I'm still his baby? How? I'm so sad.

No, I have a best friend who is even jealous of me but we declare those things as jokes between us. But sometimes I know deep down that she is jealous. She is also clingy.

Adak on November 11, 2017:

I’m a Aquarius 11 year old girl and I do sometimes get jealous when s9meone I like is with another girl but otherwise everything else is completely true.

-Savy on November 02, 2017:

This is completely true on my end. I'm twenty & an aquarius lady. everything was true from start to finish, I remember telling my friends I needed a personal assistant, how I can talk to people for hours on end, & my brain craving exercise. I hate repetition.

Marisa on October 12, 2017:

Hello Im a 14 year old Virgo female dating a 13 year old Aquarius male, so far we have been great. no arguments no lying we have a close bond with one another. If you are a Virgo I deeply recommend this match. for you Virgos out there. the only thing to avoid is being over critical or criticizing your Aquarius partner. they do not like to be picked on, And try not to be too clingy around a Aquarius. They are know for needing their space, They are Logical and smart people. they can also use their sarcasm to the max, so if you're not a person who likes to be joked with. don't date a Aquarius because they are often like this, The Aquarius Man is a affectionate person. but they have a hard time expressing their feelings. So If you think that they are detached, think again. Because showing feelings is just something they aren't good at. But they are extremely good friends and very social. and if you want to attract a Aquarius be their friends first! they do not believe in love at first sight. they need to get to know you first. :) I hope this helped If you have any Questions feel free to email me -

QueenK on August 26, 2017:

I'm dating A Aquarius he's always with me he told me you love me within probably the first month of being together but he has cheated on me within the first two months of being together and he has other females in his phone he's always left with two and I was at the beginning of our relationship and now he just conversation with a lot of them i'm a Capricorn I'm a loving person so I give him whatever he asked for so at this point I have no idea what to do with this Aquarius because he's not sleeping with them but he still conversation with other females

Cynthia Aube on August 19, 2017:

I am an aquarian, in a nutshell, we are kind of weirdos..... That is why I understand that we are the only sign that our perfect match is our own sign.... Takes one to know one....

Waseeq on July 31, 2017:

Hi I am also Aquarius. I fell in love for almost 11 years with a Leo girl in long distance relationship . we have ups and downs but she always come to me and I never stop thinking of her when we have a fight . It's not true that an Aquarius let love go easily. I tried to forget her but I never succeed even once we don't talk for almost one year but I always missed her I tried everything but I never get her out of my mind. She loves me truly I know that but she don't know how I feel because I don't know how to show off my love the most unbelievable thing is that I met her 8 or 9 tomes in 12 years and only kiss her once nothing else but I can't forget her I don't understand why but I want to be with her forever which I know Is difficult may be impossible I know that but even then I don't forget her or get her out of my mind . I am very stressed and depressed because of that and I even lose all my good friends I don't talk to any one but in my mind I remember all of them and want to talk to them but this fucking love make me miserable . But I am sincre many girls tried relationship with Me but I only love her. So dear author I thinks you are wrong on that saying that Aquarius let go love easily.

Maggie on July 28, 2017:

I can realate to all of this. I'm a pretty detached person and girls at my school are always coming up to me and asking if I'm okay, or if im sad. The truth is im not one to leave the Comfort of my mind just for anybody.

Candace on July 10, 2017:

This is complete and utter bullshit! Haha.

Let me explain.

I know at least 5 aquariun women. All are uncommunicative, demanding, disrespectful, dominating bitches. Catty and jealous. Yes...

Seriously I thot I was overthinking this crap til I went and got their birthdates. It absolutely floored me when I saw their birthdates! I thot "no, that can't be right."

Hell, yes it is.

The number one negative quality I have noticed is they want to be allowed to say and do shit but don't you dare try to do that to them. Backstabbing and passive. Cowards.

I don't roll with that well

I am dating an Aquarian guy and all of these things are true :) They love intellectual conversations a lot and are very adventurous. They may seem to look tough on the outside, but they are really super sweet. Yes it's true that they may disconnect sometimes, but they have never forgotten about you. Just be patient and it will pay off. :)

The procrastination thing is true but we can be better once we commit on doing some things. I really envy those OC people actually. ^_^ When it comes to detachment, I can testify to that. My mother got ill last year and I'm an only child who lived in another city. Despite of this, I continued to work to support them. I visited her in the hospital once and I went home once when she got paralyzed. I felt sad for awhile but as soon as I went back to work everything went back to normal. Even after I learned the news that she died. I didn't cry at all because I already knew that it will happen to her. I cried few days after she was buried. It was a late reaction and my lowest point perhaps but it didn't stay long.

how can you have an intimate relationship without have to put some feeling into it.why are aquarians so shallow.what is so hard about displaying some depth and substance in a relationship.don't be so cold and detached.

Aqua Girl on March 22, 2017:

Dear Author, your responses are quite annoying. Life is not a straight jacket. If an Aquarian doesn't call you for days, it doesn't mean they don't care. People esp Aquarians need space. If an Aquarian doesn't call you his gf, ask him what you are to him... Aquarians are blunt . I'm sure they'll be honest with you. Stop all these love yourself, be true to thyself responses. No one has it all figured out including you. Sometimes we all need to fight for what we want, it could be exhausting sometimes, but it's ok. One shoe size doesn't fit all. Good luck to everyone here who's going through a rough relationship phase. All I can say is, if your partners attitude bothers you so much and it doesn't seem like they are willing to make you happy, you can look for a emotionally comfortable time to walk away, otherwise make it work and if it doesn't... at least, you know you tried.

This is quite true, I'm a Leo girl who likes an Aquarius guy. He is unique and creative but is also kind of aloof and stuck in his own head. I've confessed I liked him and he just never responded, so I never pressured him to tell me if he likes me back and I never bring up my feelings for him. We used to be best friends and would talk about things a lot, such as his interests and mine (he likes skate boarding and I've always wanted to skate but never had the time to by a board). We have stopped talking more and I feel like we are drifting away because I confessed my feelings for him. My best friend (she's a Gemini) says she always catches him staring at me and she thinks he likes me back, and I see him look at me too, but I think maybe he just doesn't know if he likes me or not? I'm really confused and miss talking to him (it's been 2 months since we said hi) and still have really deep feelings for him. He is super caring and always wants to leave a mark on the world, and my best friend keeps trying to get him to talk to me (without my consent haha). I really want to be able to have deep conversations and talk about things with him, and honestly, I would be entirely happy even if I sat next to him in silence. I don't know what to do, but his friends think I'm nice and we kinda have a "squad" going, but he's the one who talks least to me.

Rember you have to bedste true to your selv. But you also ned to bedste frank with him.Be god to yourself.

Melibeee on November 05, 2016:

This is on point, I'm dating an Aquarius guy and we've been dating for about 9 months now but he never calls me his gf. I've been patient and enjoy our company but coming to realize emotionally, he's very guarded. I give him plenty of space (probably why is comfortable with me) and we always manage to see each other over the weekends. As much as I want to stick around, I just don't know if the situation will ever change and of it will progress. FYI, I'm a Capricorn girl.

Gem on October 23, 2016:

Sigh I'm a Gemini girl in love with Aqua man, Geminis usually are very social and have met many loves in their life. Aqua kind of mirrors our need for space and wary about moving too fast, but Aqua men are just extremely slow. I believe they can be loyal but it's breaking my heart cos I think I've been patient enough and we also had our share of heartbreaks. We can't be changing all the time for you while you preserve your fear of commitments. It's very very frustrating.

Y on October 22, 2016:

That's so true

Scorpyeah on June 21, 2016:

Hi all... to the aquarians in here... so should someone really love you?

Love again,....

mimie on May 26, 2016:

im an aquarian also, born in feb. 3. all of this is true =)

the turk73 on February 26, 2016:

Born Jan 28th I have read all these articles and comments and there are so many things that spot on its crazy hopefully it explained some of the things that I don't understand about myself like if you asked me to build a robotic machine for some purpose in less than 5mins I would have 3 different ideas of how to do and within 10minutes I'd have it narrowed down to the easiest for me to accomplish in the shortest amount of time,but if your a women and you tell ME that you are in love with me it scares the crap outta me even if I'm in love with them too I think it's cause it brings back all these old feelings of totally opening my life and heart to someone like when they saw me let my guard they stomped on my heart almost like they were seeing if they could break me and as soon as they knew they had they were gone like the wind and with my trust issues it's only made them worse and I am having real issues with it so I just occupy myself with work all the overtime I can get or volunteering to go out of town to work but it don't make me happy to be making really good money and I've got a bunch of toys anything I want pretty much except a truely loyal loving women to possibly have a family with cause all my toys with nobody to share them with...My rant is over gotta go

Give up and give over. You deserve better. 13 years is a long time to wait for someone. Love yourself.

Akanke on January 20, 2016:

Pisces 13 year friendship with aquarian man. Sexual, long deep conversations. Agree we love each other. He's told me a relationship "just won't work." Makes jealous remarks. Says he's curious what our genetic mix would be but doesn't want to have kids. Is this a dating/relationship without verbalizing? He only makes time for me at night. Never for coffee etc. Avoids me in public but makes his presents known to me.

brooke on October 03, 2015:

i am aquarian and i am very very very cold person its just a way to protect myself from people because its very hard for me to be heartbroken and i know most aquarians are just like me but i met one girl and in one day i became other person but only with her i didnt know that could happen to me i can tell her everything what i feel about her how much i love her and people who says that aquarians are cold arent right its just they arent right person for us for aqurians and i am happy that i find friend who is right for me i cant evenn believe it.

elle64 (author) from Scandinavia on April 18, 2015:

Thanks for stopping by Nina. We all have our stuff to work through.

Nina on April 17, 2015:

I would like to point out that eventhough i am an aquarius, i do get incredibly jealous and sometimes clingy in relationships and I dont mind complaints or negativity...

Erika on December 17, 2014:

I am an Aquarius born January 30th.... I think this describes me well. I also hate being pressured into doing things... ex. When a guy is too demanding of my time... I tend to feel an overwhelming need to retreat. Believe if an Aquarius woman wants to spend time with you, you will know it! Pressuring her over and over to do so just seems desperate and pushes her away. We hate clingy men.

sara on August 13, 2014:

Yeah Aquarian men very confusing my frnd said to me he loves me he always says that again n again he going to make me fall in love wid him but then he said I'll marry wid 4 glzzzz etc :/

Marilyn love yourself- and then the right man will come along -merry christmas

marilyn on December 24, 2013:

why are aquarius male so confusing. He tells me he is going to make me fall inlove with him. tells me he loves me, but then he can go for days without making contact leaving me confused.

dandyboy on September 16, 2013:

I was born under the Aquarian sign and I must admit that I feel somehow reflected in the article , if you can make coldness and detatchment compatible with love or -as an Aquarian would say: intimacy- , then you can get very close to him / her .

Girish puri from NCR , INDIA on January 24, 2013:

Suddenly i have started feeling great about myself, i am an thank you so much for the interesting research. you are very close. voted interesting.
