1. Make sure your texts are engaging (if you want him to be invested and keep the conversation going)
Aquarian men can be fantastic communicators over text. They’re funny, enthusiastic, and engaging – that is until they lose interest.
This scenario happens a lot with Aquarian men: one moment you’re both frantically tapping away at your phones, then all of a sudden – radio silence.
When he’s done, he’s done. Aquarian men rarely work hard to keep a conversation going. He’ll text endlessly if he’s in the mood for it and is initiating conversation. But when you’re the one initiating you have to push the conversation forward.
So if you want to avoid spontaneous radio silence: keep him actively engaged and invested in the conversation. This means no one-word responses (i.e. lol, agreed, true!) or anything that could be perceived as a conversation ender. If the topic of conversation starts to fade, be ready with another prompt, or he’s liable to pocket his phone and focus elsewhere.
2. Avoid texting him all day long
Aquarian men will rarely want to text all the time. This guy prizes alone time and his independence, plus he hates any form of codependence (real or imagined).
If you try to keep your texting conversations going on all day he’ll likely start to resent you (even if what you text is highly engaging). Over-texting is one of the easiest (and worst) ways to come on too strong with an Aquarius man.
He keeps busy and wants friends and partners who are similar to him. He doesn’t focus on one person all day long, romantic relationship or not. He’s out doing things, either prioritizing personal projects or spreading his social attention among multiple people.
So mirror his style. Be busy and live your own life (i.e show independence). Allow plenty of time between texts, even days if that feels right. Be a little mysterious. Overall, read him. This is especially important if you haven’t formed a strong attraction or friendship yet.

3. Expect to text at completely random times and about completely random things
Aquarian men are very sporadic in life and in communication (attributed to his Uranus rulership).
He operates from bolts of inspiration, which makes his life basically a constant stream of tangents. He might make plans to do something, but suddenly find himself on a different train of thought and abruptly changing his schedule.
Because of this, he’s not calculated or consistent in his communications with others. When it comes to texting, he might randomly send you texts at odd hours. He might message you back right away some days, and entirely forget to text you back other days.
So be ready to work on his texting schedule. Don’t expect consistent good morning texts or other routine check-ins. But do expect random flurries of conversation out of the blue, sometimes early in the morning and sometimes late at night.
When texting he might erratically bounce around to different topics in the span of 5 minutes, or fixate on some new fascination of his for three days straight, sending you 20 articles to read and talk about.
Sometimes he’ll be funny, sometimes he’ll be startlingly serious. Sometimes he’ll text you novels worth of conversation, other times he’ll only want to use texting to set dates to meet in person.
It’s important to realize that his lack of consistency is not personal. He’s erratic with his closest friends, and may even blow off plans with them on the regular. It’s just one of his quirks.
So go with the flow and be ready for off-the-wall texting conversations. The more you’re capable of going with the flow, the more he’ll be drawn to talk to you.
Note: If he is texting you consistently, that’s a good sign for his attraction level. This guy is usually very busy and has large numbers of messages to deal with on multiple platforms, in addition to his offline life. So if he’s keeping up with texting you on a regular basis, he probably likes you a lot.
4. Know that he might forget to text you sometimes
His mind is a chaotic place with flashes of inspiration and ideas zinging in every which way. Because of this, there’s a decent chance he’ll forget to text you back sometimes even though he intended to.
Worse, he can split off into such compelling tangents that later he is convinced that he did text you back when he didn’t.
So, if he’s being slow to text you back, don’t jump to conclusions and get mad. He’s either busy, forgot to text you back, or thought he already did.
If he’s like this often don’t worry, there’s no malice in it. He will probably be the first to say that he’s bad at texting.
It’s important that you respect him, no matter his texting habits. Don’t hold your breath on the read receipts, and be easy on him to encourage him to want to keep texting you. And never double text (unless multiple days have passed).
5. What to do when an Aquarius Man ignores your text
I’ve already covered this aspect of texting an Aquarius man to some extent. But it is important, so this deserves its own sub-header.
If you want to succeed with an Aquarius man, it’s fundamentally important that you avoid displaying neediness or clinginess, as these traits repel him.
So, if an Aquarius man is truly ignoring your text, it probably means he’s feeling too much pressure from you energetically. He feels the need to assert his space and create a little bit of distance.
The worst thing you could do when an Aquarius man ignores you is to keep texting him.
The best thing? Wait. Give him space.
I’m sure you know the saying: absence makes the heart grow fonder.
This is a perfect example of when you should step back and let his fondness for you develop.
And if it doesn’t develop, and he doesn’t get back to you? Good. Because now you know that he’s not invested in you, and you can look elsewhere for the attention and affection that you deserve.
So don’t get upset. Don’t double text until a few days have passed (remember, he might have just forgot to message you back). He’s probably off in his own world. It’s not personal to him, so try not to take it personally.
He’s the type of guy that you could have a great conversation about interesting topics and show a ton of interest, and then drop off the map for a week. Then, after a week he’ll start showering you with attention again. This is just how it goes.
And if you really want to avoid him dropping off the map next time, the best thing you can do is follow step #1 and make a more compelling conversation.

His attention is fickle at times, but know that if really need him, he’ll be there for you. It’s just that he doesn’t want to text you that often.

Closing tip: avoid getting intensely emotional with texting. He’s not very emotionally communicative, and unless he brings it up while texting, he’ll likely be put off if you push a texting conversation down an emotionally expressive path.
