4. She hates sappy romance.
Aquarian women are extremely practical and pride themselves on being original and genuine. As such, they appreciate sincerity over showy-displays of affection. Go ahead and skip Valentine’s Day, she couldn’t care less — it’s a cliche holiday anyway. Forget her birthday, however, and she’ll quickly forget you.
Aquarian women love when you court them because they want (read: NEED) to feel uniquely special. If you post flowery professions of your love on her Facebook wall, she’ll resent it (as it seems like you’re trying to put the spotlight on you — “oh wow, what a great boyfriend he is” — versus saying anything sincere to her).
She definitely wants romance, but the practical side of her needs it to be grounded and real. Likewise, count on gestures and gifts from her to reflect her appreciation of who you uniquely are. Generic gifts and predictable displays of affection are so not her things.
5. She avoids conflict.
Aquarians have an acute sense of fairness and deep respect for other’s right to self-express. She’ll rarely champion her own opinion as being “right” before giving equal weight to your point of view, too. As such, she has zero patience for unpleasantness and she’s uncomfortable with confrontation. In her practical and fair mind, both are unnecessary (and un-civilized).
Annoyed about something? Simply raise the subject rationally and she’ll hear you out and do all she can to please you (as long as doing so doesn’t compromise her sense of personal integrity). But try to dominate her, raise your voice at her, or call her a disrespectful name ever — you’ll be gone.
Mean, gossipy, and petty natures are abhorrent to Aquarians. As our selfish minds concerned only about themselves. Treat your Aquarian in a way she finds “unfair” and you’ll lose her trust and respect forever.
6. She’s fiercely independent.
Uranus as one of the two ruling planets of this Zodiac (the other being Saturn) creates a fiercely independent nature in your Aquarius woman. She needs to be true to herself like the rest of us need oxygen to breathe.
In both relationships and in careers, the second she feels unappreciated stifled or controlled, she wants out. Yes, she knows she’s quirky. And she knows that she needs an uncommon amount of personal space. But nothing scares her more than having her freedom and autonomy taken away. So if you want her to lean in more, back off!
Ask little of an Aquarius woman and she’ll happily give you everything. But demand anything from her and she’ll give nothing and then quickly fly away.
7. She’s constantly changing.
“Evolve or die” is a phrase that makes perfect sense to the progressive Aquarian woman. Expanding her mind, improving the world, and growing as a person is all part of an ongoing, never-ending process for her. And she’ll likely expect the same from you.
While she’ll never tell you HOW you should change, she does expect you to steadily evolve as an individual. Settle into your ways or, worse, into your way of thinking, and she’ll lose interest.
That said, all of this changing makes her inconsistent. She pours all of her energy and enthusiasm into one relationship or business idea only to stumble upon a new idea that sends her down a whole new path. Trying to keep up with her is often frustrating. And if you need her to remain the same woman you met 10 years ago — forget about it. Not a chance.
Kind, witty, clever, rebellious (often just for the sake of being so) — a life spent loving an Aquarius woman is never boring. She craves a strong, self-assured man who can keep up with her beautiful mind and stand up for his ideals, while also having the heart and passion to help her open up emotionally and sexually. If that man is you, prepare to have a whole new world of love revealed to you.
Loving an Aquarius might seem like a journey sometimes, but once they open themselves up to you, you will realize how lucky you are to be with them. Their intelligence, sense of humor, and rebellious nature makes them a force to reckon with, and every moment you are with them, you will see yourself admiring them more and more.
