I have an Aquarius man. I am a Libra. We are both air signs we get along great. When I first decided to deal with him about 4 years ago ( I’ve know him for 6 tho) he def gave mixed emotions. Once I actually gave him space and showed him it’s plenty of fish in the sea , he did stop giving mixed emotions. We become good friends ( we would flirt but that’s the Libra in me) we talked about any and everything. Our bond grew stronger. He would make sure to tell me his misses me. We decided to make it official about 7 months ago. I believe with Aquarius they need that friendship before anything. Sometimes ppl just don’t work ( like my ex who was a sag ) n it’s ok there will b someone out there for everyone. I love my Aquarius man.🏼

I’m in a strange situation with an aquarius sun & moon man that i just cannot seem to read. I am a cancer woman with an aquarius moon myself so me and this man get along so great its insane! Oddly enough, we met through a group chat of mutual friends on snapchat (basically i got added to a gc by one of my friends and he was in it although i had never known him before). for some reason he added me as a friend soon after and we started snapping ever since. we have the worlds best conversations, they are always perfectly crafted witty, charming, funny intellectual banter- from the both of us- and i know this is what really drew us together. after talking like this for a decent amount of time, he used to make jokes asking me to come over and help him work on his car and that he will teach me things so i can help him properly or to he would make joke to come “save him” from whatever odd situation he was in at the time. he lives about 45 minutes away from me so these were not super realistic, but i definitely took this as flirting. he also at one time teased me for being older than him (im like 6 months older) to which he eventually replied with, “at least for being ancient you still stayed cute :-)” This was the first and only time he complimented my looks before i met him, so i think is worth noting. But eventually as he was persistent with asking me to help him with his car or something of the sort (maybe asked 10 times over the course of 40 days) i finally said yes and that i would come (before this i had always said something funny or like “im on my way!” but never actually went bc i thought he was joking). But nonetheless, when that day i said yes finally came, i went to his house and we hit it off like no other. We had the same witty banter we had had on snapchat, but now in person. When i first got there (around 6pm) he did! work on his car with me and he taught me every step of the way, even though i had no clue what was going on. After then he took me to get food and we had funny convo’s the whole time. then after we left the restaurant, he drove me all around his town showing me his old houses, cool places, or places in his town that held importance to him. Once we finished that, we went back to his house (around 10pm) and he showed me more cool things of his, he brought out his guitar and taught me how to play some cords and at this time definitelyyyy gave me those eyes that he was were flirting or maybe he was just trying to act cute and boyish- but this was the first obvious flirting i had seen all night and it was only 1 second long, every interaction before this was something i would do with a friend- funny convos and funny banter, but not flirty teasing. After he put his guitar away, we sat on his bed face to face, not close at all, and just talked and talked and talked and laughed and laughed about everything under the sun- still friendly stuff and not huge flirting signs. we did inch ourselves closer and closer to each other so much that we eventually laid on our stomachs touching shoulders with each other showing stuff on our phones, but once we put the phone down we would always separate again. Anyway, we stayed up talking like this until about 2am and at this point he said, “im guessing youre staying over.... (i didnt say anything bc i didnt want to invite myself) and then said, “im not gonna have you drive home at 2am in the rain.” so i just agreed and we continued talking. we talked and talked for so long the conversation just never ever ended and it never seemed like it was gonna- i remember hearing his watch beep at every hour passing and thinking what the heck i thought it had only been 4 minutes- our conversations were just completely effortless (that was so cute to me). But eventually, at nearly 5am, we were both yawning and hes like, “okay you actually want to sleep now?” and i just said yeah or whatever. he got up and turned off the light and at this time i was still sitting on the end of the bed facing the wall and hes like, “youre laying on the bed this way when it goes this way haha” and im like, “well pick a way to sleep” and he motioned to the correct way the bed went and i went over there. i laid with my back facing him and he laid the same way as me, when i felt him do this i scooted back and moved into him so we were spooning. he grabbed me and we started to go to sleep. after awhile i started shifting around and he started lightly scratching my stomach. we just SUBTLY started teased each other like this until he finally came around and kissed me. one thing led to another and sparks flew and we just uh, yeah you know. and we never slept that whole night bc uh yeah, you know. And we could not keep our hands off each other. Something i thought that was really cute was when we werent busy doing “uh yeah” and were just laying and trying to sleep, he would kiss my forehead, my checks, my nose, everywhere around my face or rub my nose with his nose- always with the worlds biggest smile that you can just feeel was so genuine- it was so fricken adorable. And in the middle of the night (or i guess morning lol) i would sometimes return the favor and randomly turn over and kiss him too and he would just get that worlds biggest grin again and kiss me back afterward. just so sweet and so so gentle and loving- we kissed probably every 20 minutes all night, so so loving (he has a pisces mars if that helps you know how he was so loving). in the actual morning we just sat up and talked again staying completely tangled into each other. from the moment we started spooning until i left we did not keep our hands off each other. we were always toughing- he was always just scratching my leg or my back or giving me random gentle kisses (and me doing the same). he also in the morning, when were were just cuddling- me laying on his chest or something- he would grab my face by my jaw and just rub my cheek with his thumb closing his eyes, resting our foreheads on eachother, and smiling hugely again- he did this a lot. he always was putting his head to my head and grabbing my face and closing his eyes and then rub his nose on mine and then kiss me gently before pulling away. then he eventually did something ive always dreamed of. he asked me what time i had to be home and then asked if i wanted to get breakfast with him. so we did and we drove to get breakfast and we ate in the restaurant then when we got back to his house, i finally went home. i kissed him twice before i left outside at my car and he was still so warm and gentle and had that same giant cute smile. Once i got home we kept snapping each other like normal, but i havent seen him since (its been almost 2 weeks) we still talk everyday on snapchat, and our conversations are the same as they were before, but we havent made a plan with each other. I cant help but wonder if we fell in love for the night, but he see’s me as a funny friend just like before. the dynamic of how we are hasnt changed since at all, but i would have seen him already and he has made no plan yet. i keep thinking that maybe he just had sex with me that night bc i was there and he doesnt want anything from me and was just so gentle and loving bc thats how he always is anyway (pisces mars things). I really like the boy and ik a lot about aquarius men so i know not to push them and to let them come to you, and in the meantime, keep up random funny conversations to stimulate his intellectual side- show him youre funny and smart and spontaneous. which is easy for me bc i already am that. and i know to be a friend first, which is also easy for me bc i also want that too. But i just wonder if he has real feelings for me or if we just fell in love for the night bc i was there. technically i know he shows a lot of signs that he is interested in me, but the signs he does show are also signs that he likes me as a friend or that he is gentle in sex anyway- and ik the way he talks to me is similar if not exactly the same to how he talks to his giant group of friends. And with the way we met, being friends, it makes me wonder if that was all he was ever expecting and we just had loving sex for the hell of it. I mean, before i slept over we weren’t intimate really and he didnt openly flirt with (i mean i didnt either but). So i guess im asking, someone read this man for me and tell me what is going on(: we get along perfectly and i love this man already, i want him to be mine. help!
