Many women have had the experience of becoming friends and then lovers with an Aquarius man. These men are fiercely loyal as friends and once you develop a close friendship with a man born under this astrological sign it's easy to fall in love. If you are wondering what an Aquarius man likes in a woman, the answer is fairly simple. Someone who is independent and enjoys the social scene is likely to capture his heart.
Intelligence is something that an Aquarius man likes in a woman. He wants someone who can hold a conversation with him about everything from politics to sports. If you have your eye on a certain Aquarius man it's a great idea to brush up on what's happening in the world. He'll be so impressed when you start a conversation about one of the hot topics in the news. If you can keep his brain stimulated, you'll never lose his attention. Don't try and fake knowing what he's talking about though. He'll see through this immediately and will find it completely unattractive. This is actually a great way to lose an Aquarius man.
Jealousy doesn't work well if you have your heart set on a relationship with a man born in late January through mid February. These men are very social and see absolutely no harm in speaking to other women and having women friends. If you follow his lead and surround yourself with interesting people of both genders, the Aquarius man will find this irresistible. You'll be showing him that you are fine with his choice in friends and you'll also show him that you can be friends with other men without any romantic entanglements.
Understanding is also what an Aquarius man likes in a woman. If you two had plans and he suddenly needs to change them in favor of an important obligation, don't pout. The same is true if he forgets your birthday or anniversary. The truth is that these men just don't put as high of value on special dates as other do. It's not because the day means less to him, it's just that it's not in the forefront of his mind. If it's important to you that he does remember, remind him yourself. He'll appreciate the gesture and you won't be left feeling neglected.
Long term commitment isn't high on the priority list of men born under this sun sign. If you have your heart set on a marriage proposal it may be a long time coming. It's important to remember how much he means to you and how much you value the relationship. Don't ever push an Aquarius man on commitment as it can make him back away. Instead, focus on the positives of the relationship. He'll love you even more for doing so.
