Understand your Aries man in order to keep him hooked.Understand your Aries man in order to keep him hooked.
Aries men prefer to take the lead in relationships and also to be alone a lot of the time. They tend to be somewhat self-involved. Unfortunately, Aries men can sometimes be jealous and possessive. Don’t be discouraged if your Aries mate doesn’t constantly tell you how he feels about you; while Aries men are capable of feeling and loving deeply, they don’t often express this through words.
Be direct.

Step 1

Be direct.
Aries men don’t tend to notice subtle hints; you’ll need to be a bit more aggressive than that. Meek, shy girls who wait for men to approach them will not attract an Aries man. Instead, strike up a conversation with him, or even ask him out for coffee. He’ll respond to your confidence. Continue this habit of direct honesty throughout your relationship.
Maintain your own life.

Step 2

Maintain your own life.
Aries men like to be alone and are often busy going about their day and the things they need to get done. They appreciate a woman who does the same and is not dependent on the man in her life to provide all of her entertainment.
Showcase your femininity.

Step 3

Showcase your femininity.
Maintain your appearance and make him feel like a man by complimenting him when he acts masculine. Aries men are quite masculine and appreciate women who are extra feminine. Don’t, however, act jealous or clingy. While Aries men sometimes exhibit these exact traits, they won’t be attracted to a woman who does the same. They rely too much on their independence to stay with a partner who tries to hold them down.
Develop a career.

Step 4

Act independently.
While Aries men prefer femininity, this doesn’t mean you have to be helpless. An Aries man will also value a woman who can take care of herself, including being a good driver, developing a career and maintaining a home.
Shower him with affection, but only after you’ve won his heart.

Step 5

Shower him with affection, but only after you’ve won his heart.
While Aries men prefer to chase women in the beginning of a relationship, they love being shown affection once they’re committed and in love. Genuine flattery will go a long way with an Aries male.
