How Does An Aries Man Act When Sad?

The truth is, an Aries man is known for his strength and confidence, but at times he can feel sad. Depending on his planetary placements and individual characteristics, he may act in different ways.

For instance, he may withdraw from social events and crawl back to his own space. He may need some time alone to process how he is feeling.

Furthermore, because Aries is a fire Zodiac sign, he may become angry and frustrated and vent to those around him, displaying short-temperedness and irritability. He could feel restless and have a hard time focusing on his goals.

Finally, when an Aries man feels sad, he can often blame others for his state of being, accusing them of his unhappiness.

How Can I Help A Depressed Aries Man?

When an Aries man is depressed or sad, it’s important to give him space and time to process his emotions. He might not want to talk about what’s troubling him right away, so it’s important to be patient and understanding.

Let him know that you’re there for him when he’s ready to talk, but don’t push him to open up before he’s ready. Aries men can be independent and self-reliant, so try not to hover or be overly protective. When an Aries man is sad, it is just important to assure him of your love and support.

If he asks for your support, offer him words of encouragement. Aries man is a natural winner with a quick mind and likes to be reminded of his strengths and achievements in order to boost his self-esteem. A genuine compliment can make his day and help him feel good about himself.

Be kind and sensitive. Listen to him without judgment and give him your full attention.

How To Cheer Up An Aries Man — 5 Ways To Make Him Feel Better

Encourage Him To Engage In His Hobbies

This is an amazing way to boost his mood and support his passion. Offer him help in any way you can in order to push him to get started. This will allow him to breathe fresh air, put his feet in the dirt, and ground himself.

The anchor feeling should allow him to release anything painful emotionally into the ground, and it will make him feel more strong as well as tied to the earth, which is very therapeutic.

You two could also go for a nice long walk. The physical exercise, along with the fresh air, will be fairly cathartic and alleviate stressful emotions. This may help get him to open up to you.

Invite Him On A Special Date

Though the Aries man may seem to want to be alone, rest assured that when he is depressed, he actually doesn’t want to be alone. He wants to feel that someone cares and is there for him.

Taking your Aries man to his favorite restaurant can help to make him feel special and cared for. Perhaps all he requires is a good night of wining and dining.

Sometimes, all your Aries man needs when he is sad is a reminder of how much you love him, and what better way to show him than by spending time with him?

Give Him A Compliment

When your Aries man is feeling down and out, he is definitely suffering from low self esteem as well. So it’s up to you to make sure that he feels important and useful.

Don’t just say something to be polite but say something sincere and genuine, show him that you mean it. This will have a much greater impact on your Aries man. Highlight his strengths and positive qualities. Make him feel good about himself. 

Give Him Assurance

Trust me when I tell you that this guy needs lots of assurance. He may seem hard and cold at times, but that’s only his outer coating. His real self is a scared little boy, afraid of the world.

So you’ll need to assure him that he’ll get through this and that you’re there for him.

Allowing an Aries man to open up and trust you is a HUGE step. Until he gets there, he’s going to be suffering inside. The sooner you demonstrate to him that he can rely on you, the better things will flow between you.

These questions will set you on the right track with your Aries man and make you two connected like never before.

Read To Him

Aries men are giant little boys. He’s not so old that he won’t enjoy being read to. Choose something from his favorite books and simply begin reading to him.

He will at first find this surprising, but it will catch him off guard in a good way. This could give him comfort, as it will take his mind off things. It also lets him know that you’re there to help him work through any emotional turmoil he may be experiencing.

It may be a very wise idea to read him something positive and life-inspiring, so choose wisely.

3 High Value Ways To Get An Aries Man To Open Up

If you are thinking about how to support an Aries man, know that while Aries men are really good at being tough and hard, they are also insecure on the inside, which often leads them to shut down completely. He needs kindness, love, and understanding.

If he’s willing to open up to you, let him talk to you. Let him tell you everything that is going on in his mind. Don’t judge or respond, just let him talk and show him that you are there for him.

However, if he is not willing to open up, you could try one of the following:

Talk to him sincerely

Even if he doesn’t want to discuss his problems, you can engage in another topic of discussion that he may find interesting. This could sort of take him away from his current thought process.

If you are in love with him, tell him how much and for what reasons. It’s possible that he doesn’t know the depths of how you feel or why. This may help him feel confident again.

Show him affection

Tender Loving Care (TLC) works for most human beings, so Aries man is no exception. When you hug him, kiss him or show an Aries man how much you really love and care for him, he’ll begin to feel better and maybe start to open up.

Though they are really good at being tough and hard; they’re actually insecure on the inside which is what often times can lead to depression. This man needs a woman who is kind, patient, and warm. 

Be Patient

It will take time for an Aries man to open up to you. This will depend on his level of comfort. You need to let him come to you slowly, without pressuring him.

Focus on the present moment with him and show your interest. Try not to keep your mind on the “where are we going” thoughts; instead, keep thinking of new things you can do together to not only boost your relationship but to simply enjoy yourselves at the same time.

Be mindful of how much time you are spending together and don’t allow it to become excessive. This will likely help an Aries man open up to you more.

  1. Hi Anna,

    I recently started seeing an Aries man. It’s only been a month and we’ve hung out five times. This past week he was a little inattentive with texts and apologized and said he’s had a lot going on. I replied saying I understood and am here if he needs anything and would still like to spend time with him if he’s up for it. I haven’t heard back and assume he needs some space but am wondering how do I show him I support him and care without coming on too strong since it’s early on? Things have been fairly casual, no intense or super deep convos yet but hoping to work up to it.

    Any suggestions on what to do? Is it okay for me to text him again in a few days checking in even if he doesn’t respond to this text? Or does it sound like he’s just “being nice” and trying to find an out to stop talking to me and seeing me? Feeling insecure because he’s hard to read. I think I can be as well (Scorpio) and worry that he’s losing interest because he might not know I’m interested or to what extent. But that might be in my head since we spent a decent amount of time together this past month.

    1. I want to clarify he explained a lot going on and heavy and hard. He’s having a difficult time with something.

      I did not pry just said I’m here if he needs anything or wants to talk.

      Is it okay to tell him I’ve been thinking about him and ask how he is even if he didn’t reply? And in a couple weeks if still nothing shoot my last shot and just say I know he has a lot going on but jm interestesd in still getting to know each other if he’s up for it, no worries if not?

      1. Hi Rhonda!

        If he truly is going through really difficult things then it’s a good idea to not be a source of pressure for him. He needs less of it right now. The best thing you can do is sort of back off a bit with an occasional text saying something such as “Hope you’re doing alright. I’m here for you if you need to talk” then wait a few days and say “You’ve totally got this!” and leave it at that. Basically keep it really simple. You texting him is obvious you’re thinking of him so just say something uplifting without any pressure that would lead to “I want to see you” type of thing. You’ve got to hang in there while he’s going through this. If and when he’s ready to talk to you about it, he’ll know that you’re there to do so.

        1. Thank you Anna.

          If he is still responding and apologizing for being absent, that is a good sign he is just busy but wants to keep talking right? I’m thinking I should pull back and wait for him to initiate seeing me rather than pursuing him now

        2. And if I don’t hear from him again then he’s obviously he’s not interested and I should let it go?

          Or should I reach out again

  2. Hi, I am currently in a confusing situation with a Aries man. We were dating and things did move quickly with a month. He now is saying that there is ‘something missing’ and that he is not ready for a relationship but he is in and out of depression (I think I know why) but does not message me anymore and he is being blunt and very direct (I know related to his star sign) we did have abit of a argument and there was no recovery from that while we was on a ‘break’ as he said he needed space. But I am so confused on how to text him or talk to him about our potential relationship. I do love him and are attracted to him but it is very difficult. Any pointers that can help me?

    1. Hi Tai!

      If your Aries man is in and out of depression then his self esteem is in the toilet. An Aries man with low self esteem becomes quite indecisive. He keeps going back and forth in his mind. He wants a relationship and then he doesn’t. It’s pretty typical. I would suggest sort of pulling back if you can. You can let him know you are there for him but don’t try to push for him to talk or tell you how he feels. He needs to sort himself out and if he feels that you are a source of pressure, he will end it for good. You can try sending him enlightening quotes, inspirational memes, etc. Help him to build himself up. He has to do the work but inspiration is good in helping him. Do not talk about your relationship for awhile. He needs a break from that. When he can get himself together again, he will then be ready to talk to you again about a relationship. Need more help?

  3. Hi Anna,
    I have been dating my Aries boyfriend for over a month and he barely calls me or FaceTime me and whenever I talk to him about it, he always text back saying he’s been busy.we chatted recently and he apologized for not being active and I asked him what his reasons were but he texted back saying that he doesn’t know what’s wrong with him and that he’s depressed.
    I asked him what’s going on with him but he’s yet to reply but I’m hoping he opens up because I want to understand him and I also told him to take sometime to figure out his feelings and I don’t know if I did the right thing.
    We are in a long distance relationship and we haven’t hang out yet and I’m not sure where our relationship is getting to because he barely has time for me. Please I need your advice.

    1. Dear Tessy,

      Just like with anyone, if he changes his mind, he may push on the brakes. He may have spent some hot times with you but figured out that something about you doesn’t mesh well with him so he decided to back off. Long-distance is a deal breaker, especially for an Aries man.
      Instead of just telling you, he’d rather say he is busy or depressed. It’s not the most decent thing to do but Aries doesn’t want the responsibility for breaking your heart.
      Give him some time to reflect on this situation and don’t pressure him.The best way to drive him crazy again is to pretend like he doesn’t exist. This will hurt him like crazy and make him realize that he needs to win you back again. Expect this cat-and-mouse game throughout your relationship. It is his nature.
