How Does An Aries Show Love In Relationships?

Looking for your fairytale romance? Wishing that 'Happily Ever After' wasn't just for Disney princesses? If you're still holding out for a hero to ride off into the sunset, you might be surprised to learn that you'll find what you're looking for in the heroic arms of an Aries. Aries are fiercely loyal to the people they love. They are direct and honest people who value loyalty in their personal relationships. Words are cheap -– and the quickest way to tell if an Aries likes you is through their actions, per Horoscope. They will go out of their way to take care of even the smallest problems for their partner and always step up as their biggest supporter. And that's part of what makes dating an Aries such a fun and exhilarating experience.

Of course, dating any of the zodiac signs can be tricky, as the other person will bring out both your best and worst qualities. And although astrology has become a popular tool to help navigate the dating scene, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to seeking out a soul connection. Still, knowing what you're getting into dating each of the signs can be the key to better communication and deeper emotional connections. If you're curious to know whether the Aries in your life are just overly friendly or might be looking at you as more than a friend, there are a few signs you can look for that show whether they're into you.

Aries are very direct about what they want

Aries are attracted to people who can keep up with them and their fast-paced lifestyle. This thrill-seeking sign is always down for a challenge and not afraid to go after what they want with an almost relentless determination. And in the dating scene, Aries are very confident and straightforward. "Aries loves making the first move. In fact, if you're too forward, too quickly, it's likely you'll lose their interest," astrologer Annabel Gat writes in her book, "The Astrology of Love & Sex: A Modern Compatibility Guide." Falling in love with an Aries can be the adventure of a lifetime. And when they feel like they're in love with someone, they fall hard and fast.

Aries don't rely solely on words to express how they are feeling; they will go out of their way to show you how much you mean to them with their actions. Ruled by Mars, the planet of aggression and passion, they don't like to waste their time with silly games or playing shy. "As this is a cardinal sign, they usually jump headfirst into love. If they're in love with you, there's a good chance that you will know it," astrologer Clarisse Monahan tells Bustle. Mars also rules over more sensual aspects of your compatibility with other people, including your sex drive and physical needs. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that in addition to being forward with their words -– Aries are very forward with their attraction as well.

Aries are fiery and deeply passionate lovers

Aries will go out of their way to lavish you with affection. If you've ever found yourself caught up in a relationship with a fire sign, then you know how passionate, sensual, and electric their love can be. And Aries' outgoing aura and natural charm can make them really popular, even if some people find them a bit intense at times. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac — in other words, they're not afraid to put themselves out there (via Co-Star). So, if you find crushing over an Aries, don't expect them to communicate their interest in you via cryptic texts or subtle hints. You can count on this fire sign to make their passions known directly.

And while potential suitors are usually impressed by Aries' romantic ways, underneath it all, they have a secret desire to feel needed by their partner. They like novelty and excitement, and their relationships are no different. Aries can quickly feel scorned if their emotional needs aren't being met, so they want to date someone who is just as enthusiastic about the relationship as they are. "The truth is that Aries is a very vulnerable sign when it comes to relationships," writes astrologer Liz Greene. She goes on to explain that oftentimes, Aries will fall into the trap of trying to dominate a relationship to hide their own fears of being vulnerable. So, if you find yourself falling for an Aries, know they'll need a lot more reassurance and coaxing to share how they feel than they're likely to let on.
