How To Know If An Aries Man Is Rejecting You (12 Signs)

by Sonya Schwartz

Do you want to learn more about how to attract an Aries?

Perhaps there’s a specific Aries out there who is giving you mixed signals and you’d like to understand more about what they mean? 

If so, you’re in the right place. 

The guide below reveals the signs that an Aries is attracted to you, and what he’ll usually do if he’s not. 

However, before we jump into this guide, I want you to read this story carefully. 

I spent the majority of my twenties pining after guys who just weren’t that into me.

I jumped from relationship to relationship without ever really finding a man who loved me for me.

It felt like this would never change. 

But it did... shortly after I learned about a powerful aspect of male psychology which few people seem to know about. 

This primal psychological urge is called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’ and it has a huge impact on how men feel about the women in their lives. 

By triggering this instinct, a woman can release incredible feelings of empowerment and purpose in a man’s mind. Naturally, he becomes more emotionally drawn to women who make him feel this way. 

Once I learned how to trigger the ‘Hero’s Instinct’, it became so much easier for me to find loving fulfilling relationships (you can learn to do this by reading my personal story). 

This is such a simple concept to understand, yet it’s so life-changingly powerful.

If you’re tired of fighting for men’s attention, I’d highly recommend learning how I utilised the power of the ‘Hero’s Instinct’. 

In the meantime, you can read on for our Aries-specific advice.  

Before we look at what turns Aries guys off, I want to find out more about this enigmatic sign and how to make an Aries man miss you.

So, first, what turns him on?

What turns an Aries man on?

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. As a result, they are forward-looking and courageous. These guys are born leaders, but they have pretty big egos so they need a lot of support and praise.

The phrase 'It's all about me, me, me.' was invented for him. This guy put himself on a pedestal for praise and admiration. But make no mistake, he'll put you on the same one, but only when you treat him with the adoration he thinks he deserves.

Aries symbol is the Ram.

Blunt and to the point, do you like down-to-earth and straight-talking men? Well, this may just be the guy for you! People born under the sign of Aries don’t do sulking or passive-aggressive behavior. And they don’t stand for it in others. Speak your mind and he’ll appreciate your candor.

Aries is a fire sign.

Fire signs are full of enthusiasm, excitability, and vitality. Fire gives us warmth and energy. Imagine a crackling log fire with sparks spitting out, that’s Aries; never sitting still, always moving.

He wants a woman that matches his zest for excitement. He wants to travel, challenge himself, experience new adventures. Don't keep up and he’ll quickly lose interest.

How to make an Aries man obsessed with you? Grab his attention by being the most exciting thing in his life.

Aries is a cardinal sign.

Cardinal signs indicate the beginning of each season. Aries signifies the start of spring. This is a dawn of new beginnings and growth.

Aries are easily bored, they need constant stimulation from their partner. This isn’t to say that they are players. They’re not.

They feel deeply and fall in love quickly; staying with the same person for decades. But they won’t be happy living a mundane life, sitting on the couch, watching TV every night.

So, that's enigmatic Aries, now, here are signs he's in love with you.

What are the Signs an Aries man loves you?

4 Signs Aries man is in love with you

  1. Firstly, let me tell you when an Aries man is interested you'll know about it believe me. They are not renowned for their subtlety. I mean, can you imagine the ram tiptoeing around, acting all shy? No, I didn't think so either. Once these guys focus their laser sights you'll feel it I promise. In fact, you won't believe what has hit you.
  2. The Aries man will always make the first move. That is absolutely guaranteed. Actually, anyone with their sights set on an Aries guy thinking sparks are flying, if he hasn’t already asked you out, he won't. This is because he likes the chase, the competition. He wants to be the one that conquers the helpless maiden. Not the other way round.
  3. Aries won’t take no for an answer. Whereas the sensitive Pisces might back off, or the stoic Capricorn give up, Aries will want to accept the challenge. So, are you bombarded with texts, flowers or messages? Then he’s into you.
  4. Three words to best describe these guys as lovers are passionate, intense, but they are also romantic. These guys feel strong, powerful emotions. So don’t be surprised by the intensity of your Aries man’s feelings after only a few dates. Aries men are brutally honest in all aspects of their lives, especially their love lives. Just make sure you look after his fragile ego or things may go downhill.

How to know if an Aries man is rejecting you?

12 Signs an Aries man is rejecting you

  • Aries guys put their women on a pedestal. But they just as easily knock them off. Have you noticed he's not treating you like a princess? That’s a sign of rejection.
  • How to know if an Aries man is rejecting you? Simple. He doesn’t pay you any attention. They don’t waste time, money or effort on anything they are not interested in or invested in. Therefore, once he’s stopped paying attention to you it’s a slippery slope to outright rejection.
  • There are no deep, meaningful conversations now. Do you come home, only chitchatting things like work or friends? Going into a serious talk is a commitment for the Aries man. When he doesn’t think you are worth it, he won’t bother putting in the effort.
  • He has stopped being physical. These guys are hot, passionate lovers that treat sex as like it's a necessity for life. They can’t go without it. So as soon he does manage to go without it, be worried. He may have his sights set elsewhere.
  • Jealousy can be a huge problem for an Aries man. One sure sign of rejection is a lack of jealous outbursts. For instance, has he stopped asking where you are going, or if he's not bothered about who phones you, or if he won't say where he's going. These are bad signs.
  • He has lost all spontaneity. Aries guys are like firecrackers. Whizzing and popping all over the place. Has he given up his lust for life? Where's his enthusiasm? That’s a real sign something's wrong.
  • He wants space. Actually, truth be told, Aries love being together with their lovers. They need this constant drip-drip praise for their egos. So, if during the relationship he suddenly starts saying he needs some space I’d take that very seriously.
  • He’s become overly blunt. Sure, Aries guys are notorious for their blunt manner. After all, they are the sign of the ram. But when it comes to their women, these fellas are tender, loving and sensitive. They express their feelings when they are in a loving relationship. Therefore, the Aries man who is nasty and blunt is saying he doesn't want the commitment anymore and ‘it’s over’.
  • He won’t compromise now. Although Aries men do like their own way, they will compromise with the person they love and adore. So this is a telling sign of rejection.
  • He's flirting with other women. The Aries man is one of the most loyal of all the zodiac signs. When he's truly in love he will curb his flirting. Nevertheless, once his passion wanes, that urge will start creeping forward again. It's a sign of rejection I’m afraid.
  • He doesn’t make plans or decisions now. Aries man can always be trusted for making restaurant bookings, cinema tickets, sorting out flights and holiday destinations. It’s because he is the leader in charge. If he doesn’t want this role anymore it means he simply doesn’t care.
  • He's always busy these days. Remember the good old days when you guys spent every last minute and second of the day with each other? Aries men commit everything to their women, especially their time. Spending less time with your bloke means reevaluate the relationship.

Well, those are the signs he's rejecting, so what's it like when Aries is rejected?

How do Aries men handle rejection?

The answer is – not very well. Aries men haven't experienced rejecting before – full stop. So when they do, it can be brutal for them.

Remember, these guys are macho, egotistic, they certainly don’t lack confidence. First of all, it will come as a huge surprise. ‘You’re breaking up with me?!’ They initiate love, they dictate the terms, not the other way round.

Secondly, they’ll be furious that their ego has been damaged. Underneath this brash bravado lies an immature child. One that needs constant praise and support. Sure, he's brave, a leader but as for romance and matters of the heart, he can be pretty one-dimensional.

When the Aries man has been rejected he will appear as if he's not affected. He will put on a brave face and carry on. He may even start a new relationship very soon after the breakup. It's his way of saying ‘I don't want us anymore.'.’

Sometimes, when he's very badly hurt, he’ll act in a cruel and nasty way about his ex. From trashing his ex-partner’s name and spreading malicious gossip about her, or rocking up, visiting bars or clubs she frequents with his new squeeze.

He’ll hurt her as much as she has hurt him. He will feel angry.

What does it mean when an Aries man is quiet?

When the Aries man doesn’t understand what's going on he will shut down. Aries guys do their talking through actions, not words. Expressing their feelings is hard.

When this happens they can become incredibly frustrated. They’ll need time and space to gather their thoughts so they can vocalize and say exactly what they are feeling.

Of course, one more reason Aries goes quiet is that he's bored. This is something these guys find intolerable. Remember, exciting, adventurous people attract Aries men.

Have you lost your mojo? Has your life lost its sparkle and interest? Make sure you get it back. Because when you are bored I bet that Aries boyfriend definitely is.

When is an Aries done?

What happens when an Aries man is done with you? Aries men won't like admitting defeat, but they will eventually. Push them hard enough, there'll be no second chances.

In what way he handles it depends on the relationship and what he feels about you. When an Aries man's done with you and he has no feelings left then he’ll be blunt about it. There’ll be no-nonsense, no BS, he’ll state his side of things and then go.

Should he still have feelings for you he will try, as best as he can, he's an Aries after all, to soften the message. However, his idea of being considerate and kind will still come across perhaps as blunt, mean and nasty. But he will think he's being gentle and sensitive.

For a lot of women who are dating and dumped by an Aries man, they don’t even get the message it's over. You see, Aries are forward-thinkers. As such, it’s hard for them looking back and dealing with, what they now think of, as the past.

In their mind, they are already gone. Why waste time and effort? Meanwhile, you are left reeling from the experience.

So what have we learned from this?

With the Aries guy, it’s pretty much, what you see is what you get. Give him space, follow his lead, praise him for the good stuff and reap the rewards along the way!


How Do You Tell If An Aries Man Is Over You?

  1. I'm Scorpio woman and my (ex)-boyfriend is Aries man. We had huge fight about money and fidelity. Until then we've been getting alon perfectly (almost a perfect match). When hit the cross road (the first and only one), he left without saying a single world. I tried to talk about what went wrong but he was not responsive and he blocked me from everywhere. I called him, and wrote him a message that I'm truly sorry and I apologize for my hurtful actions.I love him. How do I get him ta at least talk to me again? HELP!
