What You Need To Know About Dating An Aquarius

Dating without knowing someone's zodiac sign? Are you even dating? We're not saying astrology is the end all be all of a relationship, but knowing your partner's birth chart definitely creates more awareness within the connection. Finding out one's cosmic blueprint can be incredibly revealing. It's always an instant tea spiller and cracks open any closed books. One sign that holds much mystery and allure worth diving into is Aquarius. Those born under this sun sign are naturally mystifying due to their aloof exterior, coolness, and nonchalant swag that can be hard to pin down. 


According to expert sister astrologers, The AstroTwins, Aquarius is an air sign that has very casual connections, unconsciously moving from energy to energy, much like the wind. To get to know an Aquarius is like getting close to an independent philosopher. Understanding who they are in love is not as straightforward as, say, an intense Scorpio or hopeless romantic Pisces. These water-bearers are a bit more intricate. This is everything you need to know about dating an Aquarius.

They crave the unconventional

Many people believe because Aquarius is depicted as a water-bearer that they are a water sign. However, according to astrologers at Café Astrology, the water-bearer represents Aquarius individuals giving spiritual life to the material world by washing away outdated beliefs and systems of the past. They are constantly thinking of innovative and unique ways to propel themselves and others. In love, they're attracted to those who think differently and can keep up with their eccentric ways. As an air sign, however, Aquarius individuals can come off as incredibly detached and even cold. Their need for constant inventiveness creates an unemotional disengagement for the sake of progress. 


People with heavy Aquarius energy don't like to get deep into their emotions and definitely do not enjoy heated or impassioned arguments. It's important, therefore, not to take their emotional unavailability as personal or cold-hearted. They're not opposed to controversy by any means, though. According to The AstroTwins, Aquarius is the rebel of the zodiac and loves a good shock factor. They prefer a love that is unconventional, where their independence is still prioritized. When dating an Aquarius, it's important to see them as progressive rule-breakers and intellectuals. For this reason, they pair well with other freedom lovers like Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini, and Libra.

They want an intellectual best friend

Aquarius might be the most laid-back sign in the zodiac. Despite the constant flow of creativity happening underneath the surface, they are the definition of calm, cool, and collected. Because they're slow to rush into emotions, having a relationship that is based on friendship is of utmost importance, per Popular Astrology. It's very common to start off as friends first before romantic stirrings develop with an Aquarius. 


As the humanitarians of the zodiac, according to AstroStyle, Aquarius craves intellectual conversations about the world, social justice, and art. They are the first to know about things like NFTs, the current exhibit at a museum, and unique indie artists before they blow up. They need a partner who can keep up with their high-brow mentality and feel most in love sharing philosophical ideals about the future. Getting too bogged down on emotions, though, might push them away. It's important to respect an Aquarius' perspective on life and their romantic style because it is almost always unorthodox.
