Dating Pisces Man

Introduction to Pisces Men

If you are dating a Pisces man you are in for a bumpy ride. He will love his freedom and like the fish his sign is named after, he could easily be a slippery person to be with. He often claims that more is less but that only applies to him. The more you think you are finding out about him the less he is likely to want to tell you. Most of the things you know you will find out by accident or through his family or friends. He may at times slip up and let you know something but it won’t be much and he will do his best to make sure that it does not happen often. He will seem like a little puppy desperate for attention and love but not prepared to do anything in return. If he can be taught that love is there but he has a part to play the relationship should last.

A Pisces man can be two different people in one and the contrast between both is so wide that it is hard to fathom out how he has managed it. He can stay with a woman for most of his life but decide not to get married. To him he still has his freedom even though he cannot function properly without her. It is how he feels about things that is important rather than how they really are. In contrast he could spend the night with a prostitute or just pick someone up for a one night stand and the next day he will decide he wants to be with them forever. He can be infuriating and yet innocent and needy at the same time.

There is strength in many Pisces men that will make them cut off their nose to spite their face. There may be something that they really want but if someone else has told them they want it or even suggested it would be best for them they will not submit. No one will tell them what is best for them even if they know deep down that actually it is best. If you pretend you are not too bothered either way he may not immediately drop down onto one knee but he is more likely to hint about what could happen in the future than he ever would if you kept pushing and pushing. He might be stubborn but he is not stupid. He does not want to lose you so needs to keep you dangling – good word for a Pisces – and hinting at marriage is likely to keep you sweet for a while and buy him more time.

Once You Are Dating

Dating a Pisces man will be like taking a dog for a walk on a retractable lead. If you are concerned about him and try to keep him close by he will be tugging at the lead to get away. If you loosen it and let him go as far as he wants he will have a little sniff around and then return to your side. Often it is a matter of knowing him and also how to treat him. Now it could be time to play him at his own game.

It is your time to be taken for a walk and when he lets the lead out – go for it. Make it look like you want your own freedom and will be just as happy away from him as you will be nearby. It is now that he will become worried. He always thought he was the one calling the shots and pulling the strings, but now you are teasing him. He will see you as a much stronger person than he thought you were and this will entice him. He needs someone strong and it is then that he may decide to commit. It may be best not to let him know what you did as although he needs someone strong he may not want to admit it.

Once he has made his decision he knows he needs to keep you. He may be difficult to tame but part of him does not want to go through the same old routine time and time again. He believes he has won here and got what he wants and is determined to keep it. Now you may be treated the way you should have been in the first place with flowers and chocolates and lots of kind words. He is now able to behave the way he wants to and as he trusts you he will become a more kind and gentle person. You can still ruin this by breaking the trust as he needs you to be proud of him but also desire him.

You may now be asking yourself if it is worth putting yourself through this torment and need to look at what you may get out of it. It is clear what you need to put in and what you will have to put up with, but the rest is still unknown. At times it may be worrying how dependent he has become on you. You will have the pressure of helping him along his way and the fear that any of his failings may be your fault as you damaged his fragile ego. Teaching him to be strong for himself will not be easy.

As a Couple

Be warned that as a couple you may see a grown man cry. His initial reluctance to open up to you will disappear and he will now want you to know everything. This will include his hopes and dreams along with his deepest fears. This is where the tears come in. He can express himself much more openly as part of a couple and you may not like it but you will have to get used to it. It is best to remember that this is what you wanted when he was holding back. How often did you wish he would tell you what was wrong and show at least a little vulnerability? You now have what you wanted and must accept it. You asked for openness and now have it.

It may be hard for you to accept that the man who led you such a dance in the early years is now dependent on you. If it is frightening let him know. He will react better to knowing that you are scared rather than that you are bored and may not want to be with him anymore. At the same time he may be annoying you by asking if you really care he will be secretly terrified of losing you. He will ask you how you feel about his best friend and worrying about the reaction, yet he will not tell you that he enjoys hearing your favorite song even when you are not there and going to your favorite places even if you’re not around.

By the time you are an established couple things could have well gone in a complete circle. At the beginning he was running rings around you and now he is at your beck and call. If you care for him as much as he now clearly cares for you make sure you look after him and give back what he gives so freely.

    Sounds like the author had a bad experience with a Piscean lover. Doesn't sound like a very objective view of a Pisces man at all.

    There are some grammar/proof-reading mistakes. However, I'm currently dating a Pisces man… and he acts EXACTLY as described above. To a T. And I'm going crazy (literally insane) trying to deal with him. But I know in the end it will all be worth it. I love him– He's a beautiful Pisces 🙂 I'm an Aries to boot, which makes things even more interesting haha

    EXACTLY. I was dating this Piscean guy with Sag Moon and Aqua Mars. He acts just like mentioned here. Aloof and reserved first and cries and depends on you in EVERYTHING next. He is intelligent and very emotionally dependable, I could always come to him when I felt down and he would comfort me but life is not just about feeling down! I want my man to bring me up, not deal with my falls!

    Now I still haven't completely broken up with him as I am actually really afraid of his intense emotional reaction, tears and all of that, I don't want an ugly scene.
    Have told him we have to separate and he has to learn to be able to be happy on his own, without my constant support. I felt he was feeding off my enthusiasm at ALL times. I am strong (Aqua Sun, Aries Moon and Mars, Sag Venus) but I want a strong partner as well, not a kid I've got to take care of.

    My Pisces man is the first ever in my Life. We've been through so much! But, to me he's worth it. We fight to make it work. I'm a Cancer. It was not easy in the beginning. And we still have our days. This article was him to a T! And I have felt the things described in the article. No two people are the same. As no two relationships. This was helpful for me. Thank you!

    Omg first comment I don't know what your experiences have been but this is Pisces man classic at best. I'm talking to a Pisces man and this is him all the way. Sometimes I think because he loves me and I make him happy he wants to give in to me more. Trust is primary with them as they are loving but don't wear their heart on their sleeves and hate to think they're being used or they're going to get hurt. Definitely no easy task snagging one it's like fishing you have to have the right bait if you want to hook the big fish of choice!

    Cancer girl here dating a Pisces, sounds like him to a T. He comes across a strong tough alpha male, but to me, he is the most gentle caring man, I'm so grateful and express it to him daily, when you hit the bumpy ride with your Pisces, hold on tight, because what he really wants to know, if you’re in it for the long haul and are you strong enough to look after him when he needs you.

    I've dated and lived with for almost 4 yrs. I'm a Scorpio with sun in Aries. This is so very true; however, he still behaves emotionally withdrawn, driving me fkn insane lol. It makes me feel as if he is acting totally sketchy at times… even though recently this has diminished slightly. Hopefully with a little more time he will become the needy ever questioning one.

    I am an Aquarian female, currently in a relationship with a Piscean male. Everything said is very true, and of course I like challenges. I love how he finally opens up and is just so honest with me. We have our ups and downs and with me being an Aquarian and him a Piscean is not making things a whole lot easier. But I can tell that the difference between us is what connects us. We are getting on so well, which is surprising as our zodiac signs were not supposed to match at all. I'm glad we do tho 🙂

    This is beautifully written and spot on from what I can tell, so far. I am an Aries more so in a FWB situation with a Pisces man… although I've read they can’t always separate love & sex. We will see how it turns out. I'm enjoying his soft nature surprisingly enough, as I am used to dating dominate and competitive egotistical sighs such as Leo & another Aries… so this is new. But I like that he is considerate and compassionate… the neediness is annoying though, haha!

    OMG exactly! I am a Gemini so we are the worst zodiac match for longevity. I am kind of tired of the back and forth so when I start to pull away he comes back with tons of love and adoration which reals me right in. However when I want to time and attention he is distant… It almost feels like emotional abuse. His good qualities are what has kept me hanging in there so long but something has got to give. I do love his crazy self.

    Most of it is really true… I got the biggest disappointment from a pisces, gentleman, sweet, caring etc.

    Until we had an argument, he ended everything between us without really saying that it was over. And now I’m just realizing that he’s been sleeping over with other women from our office (we’re colleagues) and he keeps hitting on other coworkers in front of my face – I saw him twice leaving with 2 different girls late after work and they were openly flirting.

    I never thought he would behave that way and would hurt me that much without even caring. What a massive lack of respect… I’ve never been so wrong about someone. I found out a complete different person in him. So ladies, be careful with pisces! They make you feel special and give you everything but they take all that back as fast and easy as they gave it to you in the first place. They are like spoiled kids looking endlessly for the best toy in town.

    Never ever met such selfish person with that much lack of empathy… jumping from a girl to another and even worse from the same company! – knowing that you’re hurting people on the way – and not seeing what’s wrong…

    Pisces people keep saying that they are sensitive and altruistic etc. but what I saw was someone who was only caring about his own feelings and his own needs.

    Pisces are the most charming creatures yes. But they are a real danger because they feel so unsecure that they hurt people around and don’t believe at all that they are the ones to blame… they keep thinking that they are the “victims” somehow.

    Sorry but Pisces: never again.

    I have been chatting to a Pisces man for 4 months now… we in different countries and haven’t met as yet… we started off with such zest… and then one day he just stopped for 3 days… I asked him. If I did something to offend him… he said absolutely not… but then disappears again… and if I don’t make contact he just doesn’t bother… yet if I send him a message… he responds immediately… I find it very frustrating… I have these outbursts with him… writing these long messages about how I feel… he reads them and doesn’t respond… but yet he says he wants this relationship. But makes absolute no effort…

    Please advise what do I do? I do like him very much tho… I find him very appealing…

    I’m a ♊ woman in love with a ♓ man. He is exactly as said above. All I read is how it won’t work because of our signs I don’t care what the stars say I Love Him and I know it’s been a challenge he has love for me but is not in love with me yet!! But I know we have something special. And I will not let anyone or anything come between us or take that away… Is there any other couples out there that stayed together with our star signs? I’m just curious to know.
