Are you struggling to find out if your Aquarian man is in love with you?

Are his signals confusing and driving you crazy?

It takes a particular person to make the Aquarian man feel real love. He doesn’t fall in love easily or often.

The conditions have to be just right for an Aquarian man to feel vulnerable enough to allow love to sink in. But when he does let true love develop, his fixed sign nature makes him go all in.

Once you learn what to look for, it becomes easy to tell whether he’s become serious about you and fallen in love.

We’ll cover all of his essential love signals in this article. The secrets to understanding the Aqua man’s love signals are only a few scrolls away.

By the end, you’ll be able to tell if your Aquarian guy is in love with you (or if he’s not).

1.) You have become incredibly close friends and lovers

It might seem like he knows everybody around him. He’s cordial and friendly with just about everyone in his life. But in reality, he only has a small handful of genuinely close relationships.

Aquarius is the sign most associated with platonic friendship. For him to fall in love, it is an absolute requirement that he builds a deep, intimate friendship with his lover. He simply won’t fall in love with someone if they haven’t become his best friend first.

Some signs that he considers you a close enough friend worthy of falling in love with:

He wants to be around you a lot. The Aqua man values his alone time and rarely spends too much time with anyone in particular. If he’s spending more and more time with you, it’s a sign that he considers you an important friend.

He’s deeply connected to you. Even in romantic relationships, the Aqua man can avoid connecting. He’s detached from most people in his life, family included. Since he rarely opens up and connects deeply with anyone, it’s a sign he values you as a true friend if he’s making himself available for a deeper connection.

He’s consistently happy around you. The Aqua man is typically an energetic and positive friend and lover. But he can grow bored of people and experiences. If you’ve noticed that his energy and positivity within your relationship have only been rising, it’s a sign that he’s become invested in you.

2.) He’s fascinated by you

The Aquarius man has a curious and analytical mind and can’t help but analyze everyone around him.

And when he’s in love? His curiosity kicks into overdrive, and he becomes passionately interested in everything about his lover.

When he’s love-struck fascinated by you, he’ll want to learn all of your opinions. So, if your Aquarius man is in love with you, he’ll ask for your take on pretty much everything. From philosophy to psychology, religion to spirituality, If he loves you, he’ll want what you think about everything.

Note that an infatuated Aquarius man will be deeply curious, too. This in-love fascination I’m referring to reflects a deeper kind of interest that’s been established over time.

3.) His affection for you remains constant

The Aquarian man is naturally cold, aloof, and sometimes inconsistent in relationships.

Because his nature is typically wavering and hot and cold, it’s a massive indicator of love when his attention and affections for his partner become constant.

He’s erratic, but remember, he’s also a fixed sign. And his fixed, steady nature comes out when he’s found a partner whom he loves.

So, If your Aquarian partner has stopped being aloof with you and is tuned in to your energy without shutting down or off himself, then he’s probably in love with you.

4.) He’s open to PDA

Aquarius men aren’t the most outwardly affectionate people. Many don’t even like to kiss their partner when people are around.

While he can be pretty lovey-dovey behind closed doors with someone that he’s really into, that rarely translates to passionate displays in public.

When he’s genuinely in love, though, all caution goes out the window.

So if he’s become highly receptive to public displays of affection, even instigating them himself at times, there’s a good chance that he’s feeling in love with you and isn’t afraid for others to see it.

5.) He expresses hypersensitive or intense emotions around you

Many people assume that Aquarius men are relatively unemotional because of their aloofness.

In reality, he’s full of emotions, but he conceals them deeply and operates from his mind to keep them at a distance.

If he’s showing this kind of vulnerability, particularly when it’s about your relationship, it means that he cares a lot about your connection and that feels safe with you, which is a huge deal for this man.

This is a rare and valuable experience for both of you. It’s essential to handle him with care when he’s opening up to this degree. Be gentle, encouraging, and loving, or you’ll run the risk of making him close off to you.

6.) He talks about the purpose and meaning of your relationship

The Aquarian man is typically so detached that you might assume he doesn’t care for non-surface relationships.

It is true that he typically keeps a broad level of detachment in his relationships, both platonic and romantic. Nonetheless, the Aqua man yearns for a partner with whom he can change the world with.

You’ll know love is involved when he starts talking about your relationship in terms of purposefulness, meaning, and revolution. About what you two can do together to change the world.

7.) He’s become a much warmer and softer version of himself around you

Most Aquarian men strongly dislike being vulnerable or sharing their emotions with people. He’s an air sign, and air signs prefer navigating the world cerebrally rather than through their feelings and emotions.

This is part of why Aquarius men are so distant, erratic, and independent. Being aloof to others protects them from the emotional vulnerability they avoid feeling daily.

Once in love, though, those protective barriers start to fall away, and you’re left with a tender, warm and attentive man who’s brimming with affection and loving energy.

Few people see this compassionate, caring, and sentimental side to the Aqua man. It is powerful to see this oft disillusioned Air sign open up to love.

It’s important to note that he won’t magically turn into an emotional water sign. Even though this man is way softer in love, he still possesses his signature self-detachment. It’s just no longer protectively blocking him from being open-hearted.

8.) He shows signs of wanting commitment

A yearning for commitment is a significant indicator of love for this man.

Aquarius men are notoriously non-committal in relationships. He prizes his independence too much to be flippant about commitment.

Many people think he’s a non-committal lover, through and through. And even though he can be pretty variable and sporadic in love, it’s not the whole truth. He is a fixed sign, after all. And fixed sign people crave solid, substantial, and devoted partnerships.

When he’s finally found someone who he truly loves and has deeply connected with them, he will commit to them wholeheartedly.

Note that commitment doesn’t necessarily equal a desire for exclusivity for this man. He is typically open to various types of relationships. For example, he might want to commit to being polyamorous and have you as his primary life partner.

9.) He makes an effort to get to know the people close to you

Is your Aquarius man going out of his way to familiarize himself and develop bonds with your friends and family?

This is a sign that he’s developing deeper feelings, perhaps love.

He won’t be over the top about this, so pay close attention. Read how he interacts with your group, and notice if he’s being more revealing or inquisitive than he typically is in everyday social situations.

10.) He’s relaxed about distance and time spent apart

To be happy in a relationship, the Aquarian man needs plenty of independent time apart from his lover.

It doesn’t matter if you’re new acquaintances or have been dating for years. He needs his alone time, period.

One way to tell that he’s in love with you is how he acts about taking his alone time.

If he’s confident and self-assured about your relationship, even when you spend a week or more without seeing each other, it’s a sign that he’s very relaxed and comfortable with your partnership.

11.) He flat out tells you he loves you

The Aquarius man won’t typically wear his emotions on his sleeve as an air sign.

But this is primarily due to him not knowing what his emotions mean.

When he’s sure about his emotions, he won’t usually want to hide them. So when he’s in love, he won’t be shy to share his feelings with you.

If you’ve determined that he’s most likely fallen in love with you, don’t be shy to bring it up. You might be surprised at how easily he will declare his love for you. (But If you’re not so sure, I’d advise not bringing it up, as it could scare a less committed Aqua man off).

  1. One time he came up to me while I was seated at a cafe and he rubbed his hand on my shoulder and said what he wanted to say, but knowing how closed he was emotionally I knew it was a big deal he did it at all!

    1. I’m a Pisces so it was hard to believe in his love, but stars don’t lie, he really shows off his romantic side, what’s unusual for an Aquarius! I am so lucky to have this man around <3

  2. I’m just soooo happy that I read up on Aquaman else I would have closed the door looooong ago…Aftee 20 odd years of friendship I now find him more attractive as a mature man…and luckily for me he is divorced and once again free….

  3. He would always wave at me every morning without fail while out exercising then I grew fond of him until one day we finally spoke and he asked for my number.I didn’t get him at first because he seemed shy and closed off but boy did we kick it off !He’s super attentive,sensitive,passionate the list is very long.Yes aqua men love their independence and hate being smothered but whenever we’re together he makes me feel seen,heard and appreciated. I am yet to meet a man that can mentally stimulate and intrigue you at the same time.Oh am an aries woman so we click like nothing
