The one trait of personality perhaps which makes an Aquarius stand out from the crowd is a keen, inquiring mind. They are interested in getting into the heart of everything and knowing how it works. An equally curious bent of mind marks the Aquarius woman as well. So starting a conversation with your Aquarius partner on the first date should not be a problem if you reveal an interest in culture, science, travel, social issues or a host of other topics. On the other hand you could bore her into leaving if all you can do is crack silly jokes and stare at other women around your table. An Aquarius woman is cultured and well-read so it is necessary for you to display some evidence of your own intellectual interests if you really intend to catch her attention. While it would be fun to engage her in broad-ranging discussions, take care to steer clear of controversial topics until you get to know her a little more.
An Aquarians good taste in cultural pursuits extends to appearances as well. She is most likely to be good looking or at least well groomed and fashionable. While she does not follow the dictates of the fashion runway, her individual style is highly becoming and appropriate to her personality. So when taking out your Aquarius girlfriend on a date, take care to turn out in something smart and proper to a special occasion. This is not to say that you should go hunting for a three-piece dinner jacket, but that you should think twice before turning up in your worn-out jeans and faded T-shirt.
Aquarians are not particularly well-known for a high emotional quotient. For all her intelligent personality, they are rather detached from the messy world of feelings and like to maintain an emotional distance even with people they are fond of. So if you are expecting your Aquarius girlfriend to respond with the ardor of a Scorpio or the sensitivity of a Cancerian to your romantic overtures, you have a long wait ahead of you. Your girlfriend may be witty, charming and an excellent communicator but may not be very keen on allowing you unrestricted entry into her emotional self.
Like their emotional detachment, Aquarians don’t care very much for physical intimacy too. For them love is all about sharing ideals and projects as well as taking part in lively discussions. Sexual love is interesting so long as it offers a chance of attractive theories and hypotheses but the actual practice is something many Aquarians may shy away from. This also perhaps why, Aquarians want their partners to be good pals first and lovers only after that. In fact many Aquarians may welcome the idea of open marriages which would imply the minimum of restrictions associated with the institution.
The reason why most Aquarians prefer to distance themselves emotionally and even sexually from their partners is an ingrained need for personal independence. This is probably due to the influence of Uranus which is one of the two ruling planets of this Zodiac, the other being Saturn. Those Aquarians ruled by Uranus are unconventional, original and take pleasure in eccentric modes of thought or behavior just to emphasize their highly individualistic bent of mind. For these people, any kind of rules or limitations imposed by external agents is an anathema. So if you are serious about your Aquarius girlfriend, try not to hedge her in either with social norms or your own expectations. This is because as soon as she feels that her individuality is being compromised in this relationship, she will want to fly away. Giving your girlfriend enough room to follow her own pursuits and keep her own social circle will assure her that you understand her need for personal freedom and thus can be trusted as a partner.
Interestingly some Aquarians reveal very opposite traits. With Saturn as their primary ruler, some of them are conventional, highly disciplined and rather strict about money matters. Where they find common ground with the other strain of Aquarians is in possessing an incisive mind and the ability to look into the future. So whether your girlfriend believes in following a straitlaced corporate career or has colorful Bohemian tendencies, one thing you can be sure of is an active intellect beneath the appearances, striving to make sense of several things at once and coming up with its own propositions for the betterment of the universe. Not for nothing are Aquarians known as the visionaries of the zodiac.
It is this forward-looking bent of mind which makes most Aquarians generous and broad-minded. Mean and petty natures are abhorrent to them as are selfish minds concerned merely about themselves. So if you want to impress your Aquarius girlfriend, make sure she sees a humane and fair-minded side of your personality. And the best part of this effort means that whether or not you get to keep your girlfriend, it will surely help you to be a better person.
The Symbol of the Aquarius is the Water-Bearer and quite appropriately too, considering that people of this sign are eager to bestow the gifts of new thoughts and ideas on humanity. Aquarians are determined to make the world a better place and here the watchword is ‘determined’. This is because while being open-minded, Aquarians can become quite obstinate too when met with opposition to their ideas. Similarly you may be surprised by the stubborn streak in your Aquarius girlfriend when you suggest that her way of reforming the community library is not the only way and you have a better one. This obstinacy may be the result of the fixed sign that Aquarians bear.
While an Aquarius woman is unlikely to impress you with unflinching devotion or fiery passion, she will open out previously unknown vistas of ideas and thoughts in your life. With a lively, fun-loving and intellectually stimulating companion, you will find the world a much more interesting place to live and love.
