Are you in love with someone whose birthday happens to be on or fall in between the dates of January 21 to February 19? You’ve got an Aquarius on your hands – and you will want to know what to expect when you are dating someone who has the sign of the water bearer.

Here are five important things to keep in mind when dating an Aquarius.

1. Aquarians Are Cerebral And Not Overly Romantic

Aquarian men are not going to be those guys who will surprise their dates with flowers, poems, and candy, and Aquarian women are not going to want to watch romantic movies while cuddling up to their dates. It is not that they have anything against romanticism, but that is just simply not their thing.

The biggest turn on for them is intelligence. Their ideal dates are sitting in a restaurant, or a coffee shop, or even at home having an intellectually stimulating conversation with their dates. That is their thing. That means talking about the latest scientific discoveries, or about the evolving technology, or even picking apart conspiracy theories is their kind of thing.

2. They Take A While To Warm Up

Aquarians will seem quite distant to their partners, in the beginning anyway. They are the type that is detached, to begin with, and their partners need to understand that and to not take it personally. It is easy to wonder if the Aquarian is really in love with their partner. It is not that at all. They are naturally detached but in time they will warm up when it feels right to them.

3. They Are Highly Independent And Need Their Space

In addition to Aquarians taking a while to warm up, they also need their own space and privacy and they are also quite independent. They may rather go for a coffee by themselves rather than to go with their dates. And their partners should not take offense to that as they really do need time to themselves.

Those who are dependent on their partners will not last long with an Aquarius because that will be a clash in personality. The Aquarian will not want to be with someone who wants to be with them all of the time, and the dependent one will feel as if the Aquarian does not care about him or her even though that is not the case.

4. They Want To Try New Things

When it comes to dating an Aquarian, it is safe to say that their partners should expect to try new things such as going to places they have never been before and eating foods they have never eaten before. This sign is the most innovative one and they get bored with old things quite easily.

5. They Are Very Helpful

Aquarians may take a while to warm up and they are not the romantic types, but they are very helpful and will want to help those in need. In fact, they will go out of their way to do what they can to help. For anyone who is dating an Aquarius based on this fact alone, they are in good hands – that is if they can be patient to wait for them to warm up!
