In love, Aries is a one-on-one person. He can never get too much attention or solo time with his sweetie. He'll put you first in all matters, and expect the same in return. If his mate's universe doesn't include a starring role for him, there's simply no point in being together.
That doesn't mean he wants to shut out the rest of the world, though! Aries is one of the most independent zodiac signs. He's not into being suffocated or controlled. He just loves attention (giving and receiving), and wants to share his most intimate side with someone he can trust.
It's been said that the biggest gift we can offer is to listen to another person. Aries men are masters of this. He gives his full heart and attention in a relationship, often playing the heroic savior for the object of his affections. This can become a bit suffocating for both him and you at times, so monitor this behavior carefully. Otherwise, his independent spirit will rebel, wreaking havoc on your relationship. That Aries temper can blindside him at times, and out of frustration he may say things that are quite cruel. The remedy? Insist he has "alone time" every day. Being by himself to breathe, relax, and tune in to his thoughts helps this mentally active fire sign stay centered and balanced in love.
Because he's the zodiac's first and "youngest" sign, he may secretly feel more dependent on his partner than he cares to admit. When he's in a relationship, he loves to be babied and may put his own pursuits to the side if you're willing to "Sugar Mama" him. His libido is generally unparalleled and having a hot, manly man walking around in his boxers all day can feel kind of sexy...for a while. Be careful, though, because your strapping stud can turn into a couch potato just as quickly. He needs a woman who will give him that encouraging push each day. He's pretty sensitive underneath that tough exterior, and the world can feel like an unfriendly place. Pumping up his ego will pay off (even if it does feel trying at times)—your Aries boy is fueled by praise and with enough of it, he can easily soar to the top of his game.
Although his appetite is lusty and he radiates sensuality, at the end of the day, he wants that special someone who truly gets him. Although he may naively hang on to a bad match, he won't tolerate disrespect once the blinders come off. He's quick to say "next!" the minute he recognize that he's not the apple of your eye.
Aries is a competitive and macho sign. He guards his mate like a prized possession. He's not above a jealous fistfight, if someone tries to steal his title! You may be private about your relationship's intimate details, but he wants the world to know exactly who he's with!
