Read about the Aquarius sign. Look at some of the websites in the resources section below for some interesting and eye-opening information on the eleventh sign of the zodiac. One of the most productive ways to understand the elusive Aquarius male is by reading about some of his unique habits and likes/dislikes on astrology websites or in an astrology book.
Be his friend first, even if you're interested in a romantic relationship. Aquarians are extremely good with people, often having many close friends. It is easier for them to be in platonic relationships because these types of relationships make them feel more independent without the obligations that come with being in a romantic relationship. Develop a friends-first relationship with your Aquarius male before trying to make the relationship progress into something more.
Learn to see things from his perspective. As you read about his astrological personality, you will realize that Aquarians are freedom-loving, intellectual people who tend to make better friends than lovers. Make an effort to put yourself in his shoes and think in an Aquarian manner, i.e. logically and analytically as opposed to emotionally. Aquarian men are often characterized as emotionally detached so when you are trying to understand his actions and motives, leave your emotional reactions at the door. Approach him in a strictly intellectual manner.
Give him space. Aquarian men are supremely independent and they love their freedom above all else. If they feel fenced in, their first instinct will be to run from the relationship. Don't call him too often or make too many demands on his time. Show him that you have interests and hobbies of your own. Once he sees that you aren't a co-dependent or clingy type of person, he will open up more to you.
Don't take things too seriously or personally. An Aquarian male may very well never bring you flowers or gifts on special occasions. He may also never say any romantic or be overly affectionate. This doesn't mean that he doesn't love you or care about you. These actions are just a part of his nature that he cannot change. If you accept him for who he is, you will have a much better understanding of the Aquarian persona.
