So, you’ve just scheduled a date with someone who falls under the sign of Aquarius. If you’re a believer in astrological influences on people’s lives, you’ve probably at least considered looking up what dating an Aquarius is like. If that’s true, you’ll appreciate this article because it gives you the information you need to learn what to expect when going out with one. A person born between January 20th and February 18th is considered an Aquarius. Here’s some information that shows you what to expect when going on a (first) date.

First Things First

Icy Outside

The first thing you need to know about dating an Aquarius is that they can sometimes be difficult to read. They’re very independent and intelligent, but they’re sometimes a little icy on the outside. They also tend to be interested in otherworldly things. In other words, you might feel like you’re dating a mermaid, fairy, or an angel. Of all the zodiac signs, they are one of the most likely to remain single. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t establish a serious and lasting romantic relationship with them!

Warming Up

An Aquarius tends to be very progressive and forward-thinking, as well as very creative. You can think of your Aquarius as being “the wild one”. Because of their icy demeanor, they can take a while to warm up to someone. If you’re happy with being friends with them first, your odds of a successful romantic relationship in the future will increase significantly. It isn’t that they’re totally disinterested in having a partner, they just don’t like experiencing major emotions immediately after meeting someone.

Building Trust

What does this mean in practical terms? It means that you have to take your time and build some trust with your potential partner. Aquarius people are problem solvers and very innovative. They love the social scene. Furthermore, they often have an interest in almost everything, including religion, arts, knowledge, science, etc. This pairs well with their intelligence and allows them to be excellent conversationalists, regardless of who they’re talking to.

Intellectuals First, Then Romantics

Friends Before Lovers

Because an Aquarius often prefers to be your friend before being your lover, you might want to hold off on the sensual or sexy behavior in the beginning. They consider that type of behavior to be a distraction. You see, they prefer to get to know your soul and your mind first before going any further. At first, they may not even notice that you are a physically attractive person. But of course…that can change once they get to know you a little better.

Going All-In

As you can tell, an Aquarius can be very methodical and a bit careful when it comes to relationships. Developing a relationship with an Aquarius takes time. To make things a little more challenging, they don’t always like change, especially the type of change that involves relationships. The good news is this: Once they decide they want to move forward with you, they make excellent romantic partners. They also make great parents (in case you picture the future with a few little ones running around).

About Their Commitment

If you want to pursue an Aquarius, building trust with them is crucial. This means dating someone else in addition to your Aquarius is a big no-go. An Aquarius partner is so careful that they’re likely to do a little research on you to figure out what you’re all about. Before they allow the relationship to go any further, they want to know you have at least a sense of commitment. They’ll know immediately if your commitment is as serious as theirs.

Moving At The Right Pace

Don’t Scare Them

So, we’ve established that an Aquarius likes to move slowly and let you prove to them that you’d be a good partner. They’re not automatically suspicious of everyone. They simply value their time and their relationships, and they don’t want to spend either of these things with the wrong person. If they suddenly become a quieter person, it usually means you’ve frightened them a little by trying to move too fast. Remember: They like to give you the approval to move forward instead of the other way around.

No Pretending

An Aquarius usually dislikes the feeling that they’re being controlled. They’re way too independent for that. But if they tell you something, you can take it to the bank because they love telling others what they’re thinking. They’re often very honest. Most importantly, an Aquarius likes to have a safe space that allows them to explore their feeling. When you intend to spend time with an Aquarius to build up the relationship, they want to know they can be themselves and not have to pretend they’re someone else.

Control Your Emotions

Before you try to get too close to an Aquarius, be careful with the information you share. Why? Because they will likely start thinking of you as a best friend instead of a potential love interest. Always give your Aquarius the impression that you are in control of your emotions. This way, if you break up in the future, they’ll feel confident that the breakup won’t be a total mess. Yes, you have to plan that far in advance, but it’s worth it because it’s the only way the relationship can grow.

When You Finally Start Dating

Prepare For Fun

We’ve already mentioned that an Aquarius usually makes a great parent. Before you start thinking too far into the future, just know that dating an Aquarius is a lot of fun! They love being random, so when it comes to dates, you never know what you’ll end up doing. One thing is certain – when you date an Aquarius, your dates will never be boring! But they’ll also be watching closely to make sure you are “okay” with their randomness and weirdness. It may not have been that way with past romantic partners.


An Aquarius also likes to be touched, so public displays of affection are not things they dislike. That being said, remember that there has to be a certain amount of commitment before your relationship with an Aquarius gets too serious. One-night stands? Forget it – that won’t work with an Aquarius. In order to share the bed sheets, they at least need a tiny bit of commitment, even if you haven’t yet started to talk about marriage. Of course, once you do get into the bedroom, you can expect a lot of excitement. An Aquarius is fun-loving, very open-minded, and considerate of their partner’s needs. Just like social activities and dates, spending time with an Aquarius in bed is something that will probably never bore you.

Final Thoughts

Do you think you’d like to specifically go after an Aquarius? Well, you never know if there’s one right in front of you. These days, with all the dating apps, things can become pretty easy and convenient. An Aquarius can sometimes be a little different than the mainstream individual. This is due to their intelligence and their forward thinking. Just know that even though an Aquarius tends to stay single for a long time, once they do jump into a serious relationship, they’re likely in it for the long run.

There’s so much to take into consideration when it comes to dating. Remember, there are always exceptions and not every Aquarius is the same. Some people prefer to use a compatibility guide in order to find that “perfect astrological partner”. But well, the question that remains is if these are really accurate. In most cases, people do in fact find value in them. So maybe it’s worth a go 😉
