Are you trying to get your Aquarius man to make a move, but he isn’t getting your vibe? If you are wondering, “Will an Aquarius man make a first move?” then I am here to tell you…

Known for their keen intellectual nature, leadership skills, and desire for originality and group freedom, Aquarius men are interesting lovers. Their unique minds ensure that there is never a dull moment in their little world.

Getting an Aquarius man to make the first move can be difficult if he’s cold and distant, aka emotionally detached. So how do you convince an Aquarius man to show initiative?

Although dating an Aquarius man can be simple, once you establish a healthy friendship and genuine interest, I am sharing a few ways that will help you get the connection started, and specifically, how you can get your Aquarius man to reach out to you first.

But there is a way to get around that. Keep reading to find out how!

Will An Aquarius Man Make The First Move?

Aquarius is a fixed Zodiac sign, so when it comes to love and relationships, his nature is meticulous and persistent. If he really likes you, an Aquarius man will take the lead in initiating romantic relationships.

He likes to feel like a man, pursuing and conquering the object of his affection. He isn’t the type of guy to think twice about who and what he wants; he goes after it without hesitation.

So if you are doubting if an Aquarius man will make the first move, you need to be aware that in the beginning he can be very detached and confusing, but once he is certain of your persistence and interest, get that out of your mind immediately that he is not going to act at all.

An Aquarius man will definitely make the first move if he’s interested in you. He won’t waste any time in expressing his attraction and making his intentions known.

An Aquarius man is not one to sit back and wait for a woman to make the first move. In fact, that can sometimes turn him off a little bit. He wants to be the one to take control of the situation.

How To Get An Aquarius Man To Make The First Move

How to get an Aquarius man to make the first move is a lot easier than you might expect, check out some of these tips to drive him crazy with desire:

Build a Friendship 

Before you can have a serious relationship with the Aquarius man, you need to build a friendship first. Give it time to progress so you know if it is just a fling or if it has the potential to be something more.

As a fixed Zodiac sign, the Aquarius man is patient and meticulous; he will be impressed by your persistent and considerate nature. And because of his evolving feelings for you, an Aquarius man will initiate the first move and ask for a way to contact you directly.

Without even forcing him, your friendship-first mindset will bring him straight to you. 

If you can, try to connect with the Aquarius man face-to-face before you give him your number or start talking digitally (ex: social media, email, text messaging, FaceTime, and talking on the phone). 

For example, if you met at the park, make a point to meet at the park every Wednesday at six until you feel comfortable expanding into something more. 

And if you did meet digitally, try to keep things on the platform that you met on for a while. For example, if you met on Facebook, keep all communications to Facebook until you feel safe sharing more of your personal information.

Let Him Know You’re Single 

Although building a friendship first with the Aquarius man is helpful, it can also be a detriment if he doesn’t know you’re single and thinks you only want to be his friend.

To make sure that your intentions and hard work build a connection with the Aquarius man that won’t go to waste, and to let him know that you want to be pursued, make sure the Aquarius man knows you are single and available. 

When letting the Aquarius man know you are single, you don’t have to make a scene or grand statement, casually mentioning it during conversation is enough. For example:

You could say something like, “I’ve had more time to do the things I love now that I’m single.” You could also say something more forward like, “In my next relationship, I want my partner to be…”

Once you have planted the single seed in the Aquarius man’s head, he will probably take some time to think about what you said. However, the next time the Aquarius man sees you, he may ask you if you’ve ever thought about him as more than a friend. If you say yes (and he’s feeling confident that day), he may even ask you if you want to go on a date with him.

Flirt With Him 

If the Aquarius man knows that you are single and you have a solid connection, and he’s still not contacting you first or reaching out, it’s time to turn on the charm! 

Whether you decide to put on your favorite outfit, your sexiest pair of jeans, or do something fun with your hair, make sure you are dressed to impress. 

Not seeing the Aquarius man in person? No problem. Social media has an excellent solution for that. If you follow the Aquarius man on social media, post a sexy picture, and then go like one of his pictures.

Make it obvious to this serious man that you are not playing around. Let him know you want him. Let him know you desire his attention.

Give Him Your Number

If the flirting doesn’t work or if you’ve passed all the other stages, bite the bullet and forget the small talk. Be forward with this honest, truth-seeking man and give him your number.

If you’re feeling really bold, you may even go above and beyond and tell the man to text you. 

At first, you may think you overstepped an invisible boundary and turned him off, but give him time to process the fearlessness of your romantic gesture and eventually this wise man will come to you. 

Underneath his rebellious nature, the Aquarius man is a deep lover. He appreciates a partner who is independent and willing to do whatever is necessary if it feels right. 

This type of woman is inspiring to the Aquarius man’s rebellious nature. He will be excited to receive your number and to reach out himself! 

Few More Ways To Get An Aquarius Man To Initiate Contact With You

Aquarius is a very strong-willed man and will not respond well to anyone trying to pressure him or force his hand in what he is doing.

If an Aquarius man is into you or at least interested, he’s going to more than likely be a slow mover. The only clause in this is if he’s only interested in being friends or friends with benefits.

In that way, it may be a good idea to let him know up front that you’re not into that sort of thing so that there is no misunderstanding. If he isn’t being physical, though, this may be a moot point.

Coaxing him to come to you or make a move is a more relaxed way of doing things. This is you tempting him like candy and a baby. You want him to want to make a move.

How do you do this, though? How can you get him to take the next step without him misunderstanding that you only want a casual relationship?

If you want more than a romp in the bedroom, you’re going to have to use your intellect to lure him in. Find out what truly turns his brain on, because rest assured, it’s tied to his penis.

What turns him on mentally turns him on sexually as well. That being said, you will want to appeal to his brain to get him to open up in other ways. You’ll need to be prepared when you do this. Persuading an Aquarius man is no easy job.

Are Aquarius Men Shy To Make The First Move?

Aquarius men are not so shy but rather slow-moving, so arm yourself with patience. You’re going to have to give him time, space, and understanding and show him that you’re going to be a stable force for him.

He’s much like a Taurus in this respect—the Aquarius man will take his time because he has to be sure of who he invests his time and energy in. He wants to make sure he’s not going to be “taken for a ride” or led down a path of pain.

He won’t respond well to anyone trying to make him hurry up. So try to slow your pace down. Show him that you are a woman who loves spending time with him but that you also enjoy spending time alone or with friends when he isn’t around.

Show him you don’t need him to do anything for you. He’ll eat that up! Independence turns this man on, and you could very well smooth the road ahead just by doing your own thing.

The less you pine for him, the more he’ll come toward you. It’s ok to send subtle texts or hints, but whatever you do, don’t crowd him. He will get turned off fairly quickly if he suspects you’re clingy at all.

      1. Hi iiyahna!

        I will tell you the same thing I told TS. Don’t let him take anymore time sweetheart. Reach out to him and be forthright. Tell him you like him and you’d like to get to know him better. If he doesn’t take the bait then he is likely not interested. There is a chance that he will and you won’t know unless you take matters into your own hands. Be bold! Read my book “Aquarius Man Secrets” for more help.

    1. Hi TS!

      My goodness! I’m sorry this is dragging out for you. I think you need to be a straight shot with your guy and tell him you like him and then tell him you’d like to see what could be between you. Either he’ll get his butt in gear and do something or he’ll tell you he’s not ready. If he isn’t into it then you’ll need to just find someone else. If you need more help, please check out my book “Aquarius Man Secrets”.

      1. Definitely check out the book mentioned above. It’s one of the few I’d say is spot on.
        As for me…yes…I’ll take it slow…observing….much like this post says. However, if you are waiting too long…throw some direct/indirect hints his way. If he is into you….he wants to jump right into the deep end…but is waiting for whatever reasons he has.
        Stun his thinking…put him on his toes….then you’ll know.

  1. Cancer woman here & I’m trying to gain clarity as to wether I should continue to pursue an old crush from decades ago or let this Aquarius man lead the pace instead. I met him 23 years ago. We had a wonderful physical and highly spiritual connection with a young Aquarius man after 4 years of knowing each other – but only as teammates in sports thru high school. I always had a strong attraction to him secretly & noticed him a lot but never spoke to him. During my senior year, I was finally single and found myself at a party with him and his friends. We talked and flirted a lot and ended up staying up all night cuddling and making out. It was hot and really intense. It felt magical! Unfortunately we never connected after that any further and I moved away to another state never to see him again. This encounter was one of my fondest memories as a young lady yet I was too young to understand it fully until now. Fast forward 20 years and Here I am
    single, mature, and independently successful. I’ve been happily single am back in my home state . Almost two months ago, this same Aquarius man reconnected with me out of the blue on social media. I am thrown off guard and shocked to hear from him & see he’s single as well. I briefly said hi over chat to catch up and we really had a great- but short conversation. He suggested we meet up for happy hour next time I’m in town. I agreed and we exchanged numbers . A month later I recently reached out to wish him happy holidays via text and he was responsive and positive! Since reconnecting I have started to notice synchronized events happening around me and feel I’m in transformation… I have chalked this up to finally finding myself and on my divine path, but this reconnection with him feels like it’s BIG and important and somehow part of this shift. I honestly surprised I’m being called to connect to him and that he’s on my radar all of a sudden. I am starting to feel this rekindled connection growing stronger even without speaking to him…. it’s honestly weirding me out a bit. Last week he randomly texted me reminiscing about our time together 20 years ago and how he wants to continue and see me again- but no plans were made despite us both very honest in requesting it does. He had a way to take me back and relive it which blew me away! I was hopping to move foreword with plans and thinking he’d reach out but he’s disappeared with no contact for 4 days now. He’s viewing my posts on the socials but I’m nervous he got cold feet and bailed on the idea, his idea actually to meet in person. I’m confused if he was just melancholy for a moment and needed to say hi or if he’s actually interested in discovering If there’s something more to our connection. I felt he was being sincere but am doubting after googling his sign. I am Highly intuitive as a Cancer and know I can be intense and boldly blunt – I am secure in knowing what I want in life ( a quality he complimented me for ). It’s quite possible I came on to strong too fast but not sure as I was following his lead. Hes got me a bit mythed, excited, but super nervous at a soul level all of a sudden. I can’t shake him from my thoughts daily now. Not sure if I continue to push for a solid meet up, surprise him randomly day of to meet, let him come to me or move on.I get along great with other Aqua men and women – just never romantically dated one before! Thank you for this article- it seems to be the only positive feedback to understand a more mature Aquarius man…gives me a sliver of hope that he’ll come back and want to explore this further. I know I do! Best of luck everyone !!

    1. Hi Jess!

      I think that you won’t really know for sure unless you do ask him to meet up and then see each other face to face. When you do, you’ll be able to talk and get clarity on what is going on. You can tell him how you feel and ask him how he feels. Get it all out on in the open and then you two can decide from there to see what will happen going forward.
