Are Aries Men Jealous And Possessive? (The Truth You Should Know)

by Sonya Schwartz

Are you looking for ways to make an Aries jealous? 

Whether this is your strategy to win over a love interest or to make a partner more attentive, you’re in the right place. 

The guide below reveals the best ways to trigger jealousy in an Aries. 

But first, I want to share an important story that you’ll probably find very useful.

Back in my twenties, it used to be such a struggle to keep the attention of men I liked.  

I was always seen as the ‘short-term fling’ rather than a ‘long-term partner’. 

I tried to make men jealous and played all these other silly mind games, but my boyfriends would still lose interest in me. 

It felt like I’d never meet a man who loved me for me!

Thankfully, I was able to turn this around…and it all began when I discovered a powerful aspect of male psychology called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’. 

This psychological tick has a huge impact on how men perceive their romantic partners. 

When I learned how to activate it, I noticed that men would become a lot more affectionate and devoted to me. 

This was the difference between being seen as ‘a bit of fun’ and a woman worth OBSESSING over. It felt like I had discovered the dating cheat code (read my personal story to learn more).  

The crazy thing is: so few people are aware of this psychological trigger. As such, it’s your opportunity to make a man feel like no other woman can. 

So, if you’re hoping to make a lasting impression on a special guy, I’d urge you to read more about how I discovered the power of the ‘Hero’s Instinct’

We also look at how to use this jealous streak to attract an Aries Man and what the signs are from them to show that they are falling in love. They can be an incredibly complicated sign of the zodiac, but they are also one of the most loving so while some of behavior can be frustrating - their jealousy streak to name just one for example - it is good to know that some of their actions can come from a misguided attempt of showing a woman that he likes or loves them.

The Aries man personalityThe Aries man personality

To start with, an Aries Man is a very courageous person. He will like to partake in many white knuckle activities at the weekend so strap in and prepare to make yourself available for the latest adrenaline junkie activity of choice. You may not like such things, but if you are serious about this Aries, you will need to get on board with them.

As a consequence of being courageous, an Aries Male is also incredibly competitive. This is where his jealousy will start. If a guy is showing that he may be into his girlfriend, your Aries boyfriend may start to show his jealous side. This is because he will not want someone else to take you away from him as he will see this as a sign of being beaten.

Some say that this competitive and jealous nature also makes Aries men very insecure, which can be the case in some. The more they mature, the less insecure Aries men tend to get, but in the beginnings of a relationship his insecurity may very well be ever present.

Following on from a competitive nature is also that Aries men are very driven. They have a determination that will make them succeed in anything and everything that they apply themselves to. They like to be the best of the best which is where their drive and ambition stems from. At times, this can mean they are too honest for their own good as they feel they do not have time for diplomacy and tend to be straight talking.

Again, this is where a great deal of their jealous nature comes from - they hate seeing people have something they cannot and keep going until they have what they want.

Conversely, while they like to have anything that they set their sights on, they are also one of the most generous signs of the zodiac. They like to give pleasure to others and will often go overboard trying to make their girlfriend happy. Be prepared to be overwhelmed by all the things that your Aries boyfriend will do for you.

How to attract an Aries manHow to attract an Aries man

If you have fallen hard for an Aries man, and you feel like you have not got very far in winning him over, you can use his personality traits to make him fall for you. Given that Aries men do get so jealous, attracting him needs to leverage this jealousy so that he feels like he will need to win you to satisfy his competitive nature.

The key to this is playing hard to get and showing you have interest elsewhere. While this may not always be true, he will know no better and will inevitably make him like you even more. Aries men, as mentioned, like to feel like they have won a prize or trophy all the time so if you are wanted by other people, this can be used to help you attract him.

It's also good to be into what your chosen Aries man is into as well. He will more often than not like to spend his spare time doing sport and physical things. To attract him, make sure that you are able to go toe to toe with him in his latest hobby. He is among the most physical signs of the zodiac, so ensure that you dust off your sneakers and get better at any ball games he loves.

Finally, make use of the fact that Aries men get very very jealous. While a jealous partner may be hard when in a relationship, in the time leading up to coupling up, it can be used to your advantage. If an Aries sees that the object of their affection is much in demand, their jealousy will make them want them all the more.

Aries Man falling in love signs

When an Aries man is falling in love with you there are a number of signs to be on the look out for. While he often tries to keep women at a distance to stop himself getting hurt and bruising that huge ego of his, when he does fall in love, he falls big time. Get ready for quite the roller coaster ride! Here we list a number of ways that he shows his love:

He is fiercely protective

Hand in hand with an Aries man's propensity to get jealous easily is that he is fiercely protective of the woman he is in a relationship with. He is incredibly traditional in this way and will do anything to ensure that she is safe. This can manifest itself in good old fashioned chivalrous behavior, but sometimes it will simply come out as jealousy.

This can be quite tough when a great deal of your actions are probably nothing worth him getting jealous over. However, remember that it will come from a good place and one where he feels he is simply doing the best he can by his lover. When he gets jealous and protective as a consequence it can be fairly overwhelming, but he finds it difficult to deal with his emotions at times which can come across as possessive.

He introduces you to his friends and family

An Aries man is very sociable and spends a great deal of time with his friends and family. One of the signs that he is falling in love with you is when he will want to introduce you to his friends and family. He will also want, if not need, you to get along with his nearest and dearest as he will always like to have their 'buy in' to your relationship.

So make sure you are on your best behavior when you meet his mother or father or his best friends. Things need to go well when you meet them if you want your feelings to be continually reciprocated from your Aries man. You may feel like you are under a magnifying glass when you meet them, but you better get used to it as quickly as you can.

If you want this to have a future and keep your Aries man interested, then he needs to see that the favorite people in his life think you are a great girl.

He doesn't say I love you

Perhaps one of the most annoying traits from an Aries Man is that he finds it so hard to say I love you. This does not necessarily reflect fully his attitude towards you at all. In fact he can be feeling so much love for you that he finds he can think of little else.

But if you are serious about life with Aries men, you need to get on board with the fact that he will say many things, but I love you just won't often be one of them - if at all. Again, this comes down to how Aries men jealous, competitive streaks shines through. They don't say I love you for fear of being hurt.

To Aries men, saying I love you means putting his heart on the line and lets his partner have the ability to hurt him. He never wants to feel weak or vulnerable in his relationship and saying I love you makes it possible for his other half to do so.

He tries to help you as much as possible

While it is so common for Aries men to get jealous and show their jealousy in a whole host of ways, one of their sweeter characteristics is that they try to support their girlfriend as much as possible when they are in love. Of all the signs of the Zodiac, including the usually loving Gemini or Sagittarius, an Aries man will be the one who does the most for his girlfriend or in a relationship.

This stems from his need to make his other half happy and how the Aries man likes to be able to feel needed. While he is attracted to women who are strong and capable, this actually increases his want to help and support even more. Again, this is a way that an Aries man, one of the most demonstrative signs of the zodiac, likes to show their affections - especially when they find it so hard to say.

What Aries men jealous streaks look like - The bottom lineWhat Aries men jealous streaks look like - The bottom line

Aries men jealous streaks are fairly easy to spot, even if they are not very good at verbalizing any jealousy they are feeling. They will start showing up near and around you a great deal more than they ever used to and start wanting to spend more and more time with you so that no other man can.

They will make more plans with you to tie up your time even more and may even want to start spending even more nights at your house so they can be sure that no other guy else is monopolizing you. You may need to show a great deal of patience therefore for his jealous way, but an Aries man will only be jealous when he is truly in love with you. His intentions are therefore very good and honorable.

Bearing that in mind, make sure that you have read and understood what the signs are of an Aries falling for someone. They can sometimes look a little perverse - like his inability to actually say I love you, but it does stem from his jealousy and competitive nature.

Again, his intentions are good. All he wants to do is protect his male bravado and not have his ego hurt. He will never admit that you have such a power or hold over him, but Aries men often do fall hard when they have met the person he wants to spend his life with.

Yet, sometimes as the long suffering girlfriend, you get the nasty side of his jealous streak nonetheless.

If this is the case, make sure you talk through with your Aries that you understand his concern but there really is nothing to be worried about. Emphasize use how in to him you are and that you are in this relationship for the long haul. It will really help put his jealous mind at ease.
