An Aquarius man is a wonderful person to hang out with, and you were likely charmed by his innocent trust of everyone around him, sociability, and idealistic nature.
Many women don’t know that there’s another side to the Aquarius man that may make him not-so-willing to move quickly when it comes to a romantic relationship!
One might not guess it right off the bat, since he does such a great job of showing his outward kindness towards everyone. In addition, he just seems so open with others that you would think he’s warm and accepting in any situation. Right? Well, there may be more to it…
So, how do you know when it’s best time to tell an Aquarius man that you love him? I have some essential tips that are going to let you know when the best time is to tell an Aquarius you love him! Keep reading for signs that he is ready to accept this declaration.
You Can See All Of His Paradoxes
This is one that you are going to pick up on the closer you get to an Aquarius man… they are full of paradoxes! I’ll explain what I mean.
An Aquarius is a chatty air sign but they’re represented by the water-bearer. This by itself indicates a marriage of opposites since air and water and opposite elements.
They are chatty, friendly, and open to all types of people and this is the part that you’ll pick up on at the same time that everyone else does. Despite this, this air sign can just as easily become introspective and isolative.
In addition, he is highly scientific. He has a logical mind and is considered one of the most intelligent signs of the Zodiac.
Despite this, this is also one of the most idealistic signs of the Zodiac. He does not have a facts-are-facts view. Rather, he would prefer a distinctly illogical positive spin to the facts if he can help it.
If he is showing you all of his contradictory sides, then this is a good sign that he feels close enough to you to accept your love.
He Calls You His Best Friend
This is a biggie! An Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus and this plays a huge part in his love nature. Now, rebellious Uranus is a planet that might buck traditional partnership entirely. Uranus is not one for steadiness nor consistency.
One workaround to this aspect of an Aquarian is that Uranus also rules community and seems to play an important role when it comes to friendships and comradery. As a result, a man ruled by Uranus is going to be huge on friendship.
Believe it or not, you’ll know how close an Aquarian feels to you based on how they refer to you as a friend… even if the two of you are dating! I know, weird right? But that’s an Aquarius for you.
If he is calling you his best friend then this is a great sign. This is the highest honor in an Aquarian’s eyes since friendships are among the most important things in the world to an Aquarius man.
If an Aquarian is referring to you as his best friend then it is safe to assume that he may be ready to hear the L-word from you!
They Include You When Seeking Freedom
This one is hard to spot, but I’m hoping that with time spent with the Aquarius you’ll know what I mean. An Aquarius, as I have said, is ruled by Uranus, the planet of rebellion.
As a result, even a tame Aquarius will try to find little ways here and there to go against the grain and shirk any limits that are being put onto him.
If an Aquarius is seeking freedom from you then that is not a good sign. But if an Aquarius is seeking freedom with you then that is the best sign!
For example, an Aquarius seeking to spice things up may think about calling off of work. But before he does, maybe he asks if you want to play hooky with him so the two of you can drive a couple towns over to check out the new ice cream shop.
Another way this could manifest is if your Aquarius asks you to move to an unknown area with him. An Aquarius who isn’t in love would typically have little issue telling you he wants to move away alone, but hopes the two of you can remain friends. If he asks for you to join him in his little rebellions, then this is a great sign that he is ready to hear all about your love for him!
He Shares His Most Wayward Thoughts With You
An Aquarius is a freethinker, to say the least. When they get ideas, they won’t be held within the bounds of convention. They may be hard to swallow if someone else hears them!
An Aquarius man in love won’t censor his thoughts around you. Rather, he will become even more passionate about his boundary-breaking.
If he’s in love with you, he won’t hold his thoughts back. He will tell you all of his most fringe theories and conspiracies.
Don’t judge him for these thoughts because it’s just a sign that he is ready to be totally open with you! This is one of the surest signs that he is ready for you to take it to the next level by confessing your love for him.

He’s Trying To Be More Loving
As I’ve mentioned, an Aquarius appears totally friendly on the surface. With time, he will end up revealing his impersonal nature. He actually can appear to act friendlier to people he hardly knows than people that he is close to.
An Aquarius may recognize this about themselves since they tend to be pretty self-aware. He doesn’t mean to be impersonal with those he is close to, but it is a natural tendency he has.
As a result, you may hear your Aquarius asking you if you feel isolated from him or if he could be more loving. Perhaps he admits that he is trying to be better, and to more actively show his love and warmth to you.
This is actually an amazing sign! He is highly attuned to your emotions, even if he doesn’t properly know how to convey his own all the time.
If he is putting in effort so that you feel more loved and accepted by him, this is the ultimate sign that he is ready to hear how you love him. This is the green light!
I can tell you that an Aquarius may not know how to show their deep affection all the time. I have to ask you to have faith and stick with it because an Aquarius is really a gift to have around.
I advise that you look to see these signs and if you see them, I say go for it and tell your Aquarius guy you love him. He will be open and accepting to this love if he is at this point.
