Likes & Dislikes

Home Life & Family

Aries men tend to have a full and rigid schedule. They are the type to wake up early to get to the gym before work, and almost nothing will entice them to cancel their Thursday night football game with the boys. These men work hard to build a stable home, which reflects their personal success. They like to be the breadwinners of the family and expect everyone else in the household to fall behind them as the leader.

Career & Money

Aries men thrive in leadership roles as they crave responsibility and don’t get flustered by it. Keen to get ahead, they are often the first person in and the last person out of the office.

While diligent, they prefer the highs of success and aren’t so careful when it comes to the small details. Aries men have their eye on the big picture, and so they are good at saving and investing. But they never scrimp when it comes to investing in themselves. They won’t be canceling their gym membership or buying inferior suits to save a few pennies.

Aries Man in Love & Relationships

Aries men are direct when it comes to love. If they are interested in someone, they will tell them outright. When they are in relationships, if something isn’t working for them, they will also speak up. Aries men don’t leave their partner guessing.

Their main weakness is that they aren’t good at reading other people. They might not know when their advances are unwelcome, or when their partner is unhappy about something. They are just too focused on their own feelings.

Sexuality & in Bed

Aries’ controlling ways extend to the bedroom, where they like to be the dominant partners. They are good at telling and showing their partner exactly what works for them. While they are generous lovers that are easy to please, their partners need to give firm guidance, and not expect them to intuit what they like or don’t like.

Attracting an Aries man

Aries men are attracted to success and confidence, and want someone that they can show off. However, they also tend to have quite the ego, and don’t mind it being stroked. They appreciate someone who is impressed by their success. Aries can be a little superficial in what attracts them, likes a person who turns themselves out well. They also need someone direct, as they aren’t good at picking up on the subtle signals.
