It can be a challenge keeping an Aries man’s attention. If you’re looking for a little help, here’s how to make an Aries man miss you, crave you and seek your affection.
The Independent Aries Man
Let’s do a quick overview of the Aries man first. Sound good?
If there were only one word to describe the Ram, it would be “independent.” That’s because Aries men (and women) value self-sufficiency above all else.
The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is connected to the first of the 12 houses of the zodiac: the house of Self. Naturally, Aries is self-oriented, self-motivated and…well, focused on himself.
Does that make Aires selfish? No, but it does give your Aries beau a penchant for doing things for himself, by himself. Like the animal that represents him, he likes to climb his mountains alone.
If you’re going to date him, it’s important to understand that he doesn’t need or want to depend on anyone for anything. And he likes the person he’s dating to be the same way.
Aries is also known for being bold, aggressive and passionate, which for sure translates to the bedroom. Unfortunately, Aries can also become bored somewhat easily. Or feel claustrophobic if you’re always wondering where he is and why he’s not doing whatever he’s doing with you.
If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to the Ram’s heart, there’s a lot more to learn in Aries Man Secrets.
How to Make an Aries Man Miss You
He’s a fiery, magnetic man—when sparks fly, the romance can be quite a whirlwind. If you’re concerned that the fire is petering out, your next move is to get yourself back on his mind while he’s away from you.
In other words, you’ve got to know how to make an Aries man miss you.
1. Do Things Without Him
Time to plan a weekend away with friends—without the Aries. As I mentioned before, an Aries man really wants to see you thrive on your own. Anyone who comes across as needy or unable to stand on their own two feet is going to turn the Aries off.
He won’t be jealous, in case you’re worried about that. In fact, he’ll just be glad that you’re having a good time. But simultaneously, he’ll be thinking about the next time he gets you all to himself.
2. Play the Mystery Woman
Unlike Scorpio, Aries doesn’t assume that he has you all figured out within five minutes of meeting you. But like Scorpio, he wants to know everything about you.
The thing is, you can’t dish it all up front. Or you can, but you risk leaving little to your Ram’s imagination, which might kill the vibe for him.
Eventually, you two can share your life stories with each other. Just started dating? Play it cool, hot shot. If you want to linger on his mind, catch his curiosity. Be a little mysterious. You’ll also feel mysterious, which is exciting, no?
3. Show Off Your Best Traits
OK, so on paper, Aries men ask for a lot. They don’t want just somebody. They want somebody like nobody else around, someone who shines brighter than the rest.
It sounds like a tall order, I know. The trick is not to try to become a different person, but to polish yourself up so that you do shine brighter.
Whatever you’re good at, make it known, but not in a braggy way. Instead, talk about your passion and motivation, and he’ll get the picture that you’ve got interests that you take seriously. He likes that.
Like reading Russian philosophy? Brush up on some Dostoyevsky for your next date. Are you an avid Tennis player? Talk about your recent and upcoming matches (Aries men are highly competitive and love a competitive spirit in their partners).
When the date’s over, he’ll be so intrigued by you that he’ll already be looking forward to the next one.
4. Be Harder to Reach
Don’t worry if you’re concerned that you’ll come across as unavailable. Similarly to Taurus, Aries likes the thrill of the chase. So make him chase you a little.
Don’t answer every text the second he sends it. If he hasn’t been initiating communication, don’t be the one to do the initiating all the time. Give it some space. He’ll suddenly realize that he’s not getting your constant attention and that will light a fire under him.
Remember, if you want him to miss you, you need to give him the chance.
5. Don’t Move Too Fast
This might be a hard one because the Aries himself is going to charge full speed ahead. You’ll have to be the one to slow things down.
The reason this is important is that your man could be in danger of burning himself—and the romance—out. Aries people are kind of crappy at thinking about the future, so whatever feels good in the moment is how they live. You know where that can lead.
Whatever your tactic is, whether you’re filling up your schedule with other things to do or just telling him straight up that you’re not into the pedal-to-the-metal thing, just make sure that you’re setting a comfortable pace.
That way, he’ll have more time to think about you, wonder about you, miss you and all of the things you’re looking for from him.
