Aries Man: Traits, Love, & More

Aries Dice Man

Over the years, you’ve probably heard and even read a lot about the “typical” Aries man traits, what it’s like to date or if you’re even compatible with an Aries man.

We’re here to provide some new insight into the Aries zodiac sign and what it’s like being a man born as a ram.

About the Aries Man: His Overall Personality

Aries traits are strong in a male. An Aries man is a hard charger, as the ram implies. He attacks each day head-first and he doesn’t stop until he’s ready to move on to the next mission. 

He is tough, masculine, and not afraid to ruffle some feathers as he pursues what he wants. This relentlessness often leads to success on several fronts in life, but it can also lead to hard feelings and interpersonal problems with those who get in the Aries man’s way. 

He is supremely confident in himself, is proud of his physical look even if an objective observer would think he could use a little work in that regard, and he’s not afraid to tell you what he wants. 

One would think that, given these Aries personality traits, a male ram is anything but complicated, but that notion is generally incorrect. The Aries man has a soft side underneath that unapologetic exterior. He is intensely loyal and will do just about anything for someone he loves. 

He is “there” for people when they need someone and he will see things through before he concludes that the problem is solved. 

Once you get to know an Aries male, you realize that he’s as loving and caring as anyone you’ll encounter—it just takes a bit of time to get to that place.

Love, Dating, & Relationships with an Aries Man

If you meet an Aries man and he’s interested in you, it’s not going to be a mystery. He’ll let you know directly, and that’s how things generally go with Aries men in relationships should things go that far for you. 

He will make the first move. Usually, he will be so honest with you about his current love life that it may almost be uncomfortable, and you’ll just have to decide for yourself if this is the type of relationship that you want.

A relationship with the Aries man won’t be complicated.

When an Aries man is in love, he’ll go that extra mile for you much like he would when anyone he cares about needs him. He’ll be loyal, forthright, and never leave you guessing as to what he wants or where things stand. This sign is consistent across both genders, as dating an Aries woman is largely the same experience. 

If you like someone who is direct and doesn’t play games, you’ll do well with an Aries man.

As far as the potential for an Aries’ negative traits to show forth, you may get your heart broken at some point, but for the most part, an Aries is not looking to do that on purpose. 

He may also need a lot of attention, and you need to be ready to truly give up yourself, as that’s what he’s going to expect. If things aren’t going well, yes, you’ll know where you stand, but you may also wind up dealing with moodiness more often than you’d like.

Are you a good match for Aries?

The Aries Husband & Father

An Aries man is consistent.

After you fall in love, as a spouse, he will have a hearty appetite for intimacy. He will always be loyal to you and intensely support you in whatever it is that you set out to do. He will expect loyalty in return, however, and he may not deal all that well with constructive criticism, as Aries men tend to be sure of their own opinions.

In turn, this man will expect perhaps more of you than what he delivers himself.

He will expect regular, if not constant, intimacy, and he will let you know if he doesn’t think you’re delivering on that side of things. He will also expect to see everything clearly as he has little patience for nuance or in dealing with gray areas.

When it comes to being a father, you’d be hard-pressed to do better than this man.

As a father, he:

  • Is dedicated completely to his children
  • Will make sure that his responsibilities are taken care of no matter what obstacles he encounters
  • Spoils his kids
  • Takes time to play with his children
  • Is generous, almost to a fault
  • Will be intensely protective—nothing will be overlooked or handled halfway if one of his children encounters a problem

What is the Aries Male like as a Friend?

The Aries man will fill his friends with energy and positivity, and he’ll be the one people call when they want to go blow off some steam. If you’re feeling down in the dumps, your Aries friend will stand on his head to bring you out of your slump.

The Aries male will also demand a lot of his friends in return. 

It may even seem at times as though he’s being a bit self-centered, as it’s common for others to believe that everything is all about Aries. But when the chips are down, and a situation is intense, your Aries male friend will stick with you through thick and thin and make sure that you arrive on the other side of a situation in as strong a position as possible. 

You’re getting a good, strong friend with an Aries.

The Aries Career Man & Work

The Aries career man isn’t interested in settling into some middle management position.

His working life is about much more than a paycheck. He wants fulfillment, and his appetite for advancement and accomplishment is as insatiable as any other of his internal needs and priorities. He is constantly charging forward, constantly taking over situations, and always looking to get ahead. This can leave some people feeling stepped on, but the Aries male isn’t thinking about that specifically – he’s worried about his own progress.

Generally, Aries males are natural leaders.

This makes them good entrepreneurs, C-level managers, or in professions where they get to put their heroism on display.

However, an Aries man is not going to always come off as a great teammate, as his intense belief in himself is going to have him thinking that his ideas are better than anyone else’s, but he will also be loyal to those that he respects.

All in all, an Aries male is:

  • Driven
  • Accomplished
  • Loyal
  • Fun
  • Ready to help those he cares about
  • Demanding
  • Self-centered, at times
  • Tends to move from one thing to the next with little or no notice

You almost always know what you’re getting with an Aries man in any setting, and that’s almost always a good thing for those who have such a person in their lives.
