Aries are known to be a passionate and spunky breed, filled with spontaneity and bursting with excitement. They are adventurous people who don’t let life just pass them by — they’re active in making their lives what they want them to be. As an Aries girl who is dating an Aries man, I’m quite familiar with this fiery astrological sign. And I can tell you that things can get pretty crazy at times (in a good way). If you’ve always wondered what it’s like to date an Aries, here are ten pretty convincing reasons why you should:
1. They keep things interesting.
One thing is for sure: you will never, ever be bored dating an Aries. Their magnetic, upbeat personalities will bring excitement into your life; they naturally entice others to follow their lead and join in on the fun. Taking an Aries on a date might be something like going to a live concert, an amusement park, or lighting stuff on fire. Aries is a fire sign, after all.
2. They’re generous.
Aries are known for being naturally generous and they love to give. Not only do they love it, but they’re really good at it. You like presents, right? You enjoy receiving completely unwarranted and undeserved gifts? Yeah, we know. We bought you this hot dog toaster… because it’s Monday.
3. They’re down for anything.
Skydiving next Saturday? Can’t wait. You need to camp out to get the new iPhone at 5AM? Sounds awesome, I’ll join you. What’s that? You want McDonald’s for Valentine’s Day dinner? Only if I can get an Oreo McFlurry for dessert. Having fun in a relationship is important, especially at the beginning. It’s the foundation on which to build all of the other building blocks, like trust and respect. But start with fun… and end with fun. Aries are always down to do crazy things.
4. They are passionate.
Why would you ever want to date a lazy person? That’s right, you wouldn’t. He or she will inspire you to do bigger and better things with your life and to be better. Aries are natural-born leaders. They have an innate drive to succeed, which means they will always give all of their effort in every single thing they do. Whether it’s friendship, love, a job, or even grocery shopping, Aries want to do it right. Trust me, we give 100% pushing that shopping cart down the aisle. We’ll elbow you out of the way for that last Ben and Jerry’s pint. Aries want to be the best they can be, and they will push you to do the same.
5. They can go all night long.
Aries are energetic and they aren’t afraid to show it. They’re open to any ideas to keep the night going and never want their dates to end. They love to stay up late talking (or doing other things), they fancy late-night drives through town, and are big fans of sleepovers because it means they get to have you all night long. Oh, the possibilities!
6. They’re spontaneous.
You know that one friend who’s always down to do anything, no matter what? The one who texts you at 1AM and asks if you want to drive to Arby’s to get curly fries? The one who isn’t afraid to send that bitchy text message when none of your other friends will do it? The one who dares you to skip class and go on a road trip? That’s what dating an Aries is like. You will never be bored.
7. They’ll give you your space.
Being the first of the zodiac signs, Aries are known to value their independence. They want to do things for themselves, and they often seek to be alone rather than around others. This means that they understand their significant other’s need for independence and, let’s be honest; being clingy and needy all the time can be suffocating. It’s a great way to send the other person running for the hills. Instead, Aries respect your independence because they, too, cherish their alone time.
8. They’re pretty deep.
Underneath the strong, independent exterior of an Aries lies a soft inside that may hold heavy insecurities. They spend time reflecting on themselves and on others and are just as much “thinkers” as they are “doers.” They have a high emotional intelligence; they read people well and (usually) know how to handle whatever emotions are thrown at them.
In dating an Aries, you’ll have wonderfully deep conversations. You will spend hours talking about much bigger things than what you had for lunch or what Sarah said to Emily about Becca. Hey, did you know that the universe might be a hologram? Does that make you sad? Because if you wanna talk about it, I’m here to listen.
9. They’re organized.
Some may confuse Aries’ organization skills for being controlling, but that is not the case. Aries thrive on organization, so letting them take control isn’t so bad after all. You can relax and let them make the plans for your date. Rest assured knowing everything will be taken care of: dinner reservations will be made, movie tickets will be bought, and your apartment will be clean so you can come home and enjoy the rest of your night. Ah, control freaks aren’t so bad after all.
10. They are emotionally strong.
Aries are known to be courageous and tough; they often go through the same life struggles that the rest of us do, but the difference is that Aries use their life struggles as strength to motivate them. When dating an Aries, they’ll help you through your tough times with confidence and grace. And, bonus: they give great advice. Because Aries are good at staying grounded, they will keep you grounded, too. Whether that is to lift you up when you’re down or to humble you when your ego is inflated, they’ll keep you balanced.
