6 Reasons to Date an Aquarius

Aquarius is a sign known for their independence and intellect, and if you have a crush on one, you might be wondering what it would be like to actually date them.

Lucky for you, the zodiac has all of the answers. Keep scrolling to discover the six best reasons to start dating an Aquarius—and whether that type of match would be a fit for you.

1. They'll Expand Your Horizons

If you're the type of person who prefers to stay in your bubble, forget about matching up with an Aquarius. This sign is made up of explorers who want to discover the truths of the world. They're thinkers who require a strong intellectual connection with their partners to thrive and will constantly be exposing you to new ideas, questioning your beliefs and getting you into heated debates. They want to bring their partners along with them on their journeys of the mind and want someone who can keep up with them and their bold new ideas.

2. They're Respectful

Aquarius is the most independent sign of the zodiac, and they're free thinkers who don't change their minds without proper evidence. They have strong points of view but also respect and appreciate others who refuse to conform to the status quo—even if you have totally differing opinions.  As long as you're also someone with your own unique and individual perspectives, they'll accept that, and be open to sharing their thoughts with you.


3. They're Thoughtful

Just because Aquarius isn't always predictable doesn't mean they're impulsive. They're actually quite rational, and will rarely make a decision without first putting a lot of thought and consideration into it. Everything they do, they do for a reason. If you ever find that you butt heads with an Aquarius over something, at least they'll always be able to explain their thought process and what led them to where they arrived.

4. They Like to Mix Things Up

We weren't joking when we said that Aquarius was unpredictable. They tend to be bored easily and are always on the lookout for ways to stimulate their minds and satisfy their curiosity. The sign seeks out fun in new and unexpected ways at every turn, introducing you to new things to do and try as often as possible. They'll keep you on your toes and ensure that you're never bored—though if you prefer a little predictability and stability in life, this is likely to wear on you, fast.


5. They're Not the Jealous Types

Independent Aquarius isn't the clingy type, so if you've had issues with jealous partners in the past, they can be a breath of fresh air. They expect you to spend time with your own friends and live your own life, separate from the relationship, and for the time you spend together to be made stronger because you were able to spend some time apart. They'll give you your space, and are rarely clingy or possessive. However, this goes both ways, so if you're the needy type, you may find it hard to get enough out of this relationship.

6. They'll Be Your Partner and Best Friend

Aquarius likes to build their relationships on strong foundations of friendship, so when you start dating one, you're likely to become not just their significant other, but also their best friend. They're not interested in relationships unless they truly enjoy your company as a person and you have a lot of common ground, and the relationship will be as much about companionship as it is about romance. Aquarius can seem like the non-committal type, but when they find the right person, they'll happily settle down.
