Aries man mixed signals are something I often hear my clients complain to me about. Women are always frustrated at how inconsistent Aries men seem to be. They’re always telling me about an Aries man not texting back or asking me what to do when an Aries man ignores your text.
I really feel for my clients because no one wants to be in that situation of not knowing how a man feels about you. It can be so confusing if you don’t understand how someone is feeling about you.
It can often be a back-and-forth game with an Aries where one minute he is so hot for you, and the next he seems to not be able to stand you. This would drive me absolutely crazy with confusion!
Don’t worry girls! I am here to help you decipher all the mixed signals an Aries man might be sending you. So if you’re keen to find out whether or not your Aries man is interested then keep on reading:
6 Most Common Ways an Aries Man Might Be Sending Mixed Signals
Are you experiencing a little back and forth with an Aries man and not sure what it means? Does he one day act hot and bothered then act as though nothing matters to him? Here’s how to know if your Aries man interested or not.
Since the Aries man thinks about consequence after he takes action, he will typically go after what he wants and when he wants it. If he wants to get a woman, he’ll do it.
If he wants sex, he’ll try to do it. So if he’s quickly gotten to you or gotten you to sleep with him and got what he wanted, he may pull back from you if he’s not that into you.
The thing is, he isn’t thinking about relationships or what it will do to you if he dives into bed with you. He only thinks about what he wants in that moment. His focus will be on what he wants and nothing less.
This gives him the “coming on strong” appeal that women fall for. It makes the woman feel special and that he wants more from her than he may actually want. Sadly this may sometimes be an illusion.
There is also the possibility of him actually liking a woman, diving in head first, and then realizing she isn’t at all what he thought she was or that he was simply just physically attracted to her.
Sometimes, when he really does like a woman, he tries to go too quickly then regrets that he didn’t take it slow and things become messed up in his mind. He perhaps wasn’t really ready but doesn’t realize until after he’s jumped in.
His impulsive behavior often gets him into hot water. He doesn’t think things through and just goes with what he feels rather than what logic would help him truly discover.
He needs to learn time and patience in life. Until he does, he will keep creating these problems for himself by going too quickly and doing things he probably shouldn’t be doing.
There are some Aries men that will absolutely test the woman they’re into to make sure that she is what he’s looking for. He may get hot with her and then ignore her, because he wants to see if she’ll stick around.
He may also want to see how she reacts to the things that he does. If she cannot handle him like that while they are dating, he figures she’s probably not a good fit for him and will want to move on.
It’s also a way for him to see what her tolerance level is. He’s a big kid and wants to do what he wants to do when he wants to do it. He doesn’t tend to want to have to ask anyone’s permission.
While dating someone, he will want to do things his way and in his timing. So this may make him look like he’s cold or flaky. That may not be what he’s doing but it appears that he’s hot and cold thus mixed signals.
However, it’s not always the case. He just isn’t thinking about what you’re doing where you are at or that he needs to text you back. He’s thinking about what he’s doing in that moment.
Remember, Aries men do not care about consequence much. He does things on his own terms and no one can tell him any differently.
The Cold Side
The cold side that women tend to notice is when Aries is doing his own thing and isn’t paying her attention that she wants. Again, this could just be due to him wanting to do whatever it is he’s doing without answering to someone.
Even in relationships, they don’t want to have to answer to their girlfriends or wives. They want to do what they want to do and anyone who tells them differently gets the cold shoulder.
He could be ignoring texts, not returning calls, or simply going a week or more without getting together to visit with his woman. Either way, you put it, he’s doing what he wants and when he wants.
Unfortunately, this always comes across to women as him not being interested in her and thus feels very much like he’s creating mixed signals. The thing is, if he’s told the woman he loves her, he means it.
He may want to have some time on his own to do his own thing sometimes and should communicate it more clearly than to just disappear and “go cold”.
There are situations of course, where he got into a relationship too quickly and decided that the woman wasn’t the right one for him so he just decided to quit talking to her so that the situation sorts itself out.
He doesn’t like dealing with emotional situations of any kind so he’ll back peddle, ignore, blow off, and ice a person out. He also doesn’t want people to see him in a negative light so he’ll instead ignore the woman.
He’s hoping that she’ll get upset enough that she’ll blow up and break it off with him. Then she’s the one with the problem and he’s free and clear to move on with his life feeling guilt-free.
Mixed Up Sitaution
No matter which angle you look at this, Aries has a tendency to do what he wants and this always creates some conflict. It makes the woman in their life feel neglected, unloved, or not liked.
Sadly the only way to cure this is by basically calling him out and asking him what it is he feels. He has to spit it out or you’ll never truly know what is going on. If he’s playing “cold”, you may want to step back and give him some space.
Aries Man Not Texting Back
It is so frustrating when you are super keen on a man, and then he just doesn’t text back. It can leave you going crazy and like you don’t know if you’re coming or going.
There can be many reasons why an Aries man isn’t texting you back, it could be that he’s just very busy, or perhaps he’s just not that interested in you. To explore this further, check this out.
Aries Man Acting Hot And Cold
One of the most amazing qualities of an Aries man is that when he is into you, he is so into you and probably can’t get his hands off you. The passion and intensity an Aries man can give when he is interested in a woman is on a another level.
However, it isn’t always easy to keep an Aries man’s attention. He is always off on some mission, and sometimes he can get quite distracted and it can feel like he has forgotten about your existence.
This is the hot and cold game an Aries man often plays and it can get very confusing for a woman to have to deal with. To find out more about why an Aries man plays hot and cold continue exploring in this article.
Would An Aries Man Test You?
I am sorry to say it ladies, but Aries men can sometimes be a little childish and because of this, they tend to test the women in their life. An Aries man always wants to come first, even in love, thus, he is always checking that you are worthy of him.
He needs to know that you are the right fit for him and that it will actually work for the two of you to be in a relationship together. This is why he will continue to test you to see if you have what it takes to be his perfect lover.
Do you think your Aries man is testing you, but you’re unsure of how to pass his challenges? Then you might want to check out all my useful tips and tricks when it comes to Aries man testing you.
When an Aries Man Ignores Your Text – What Does That Mean?
There is always a certain point when the excitement and exhilaration that comes with texting with an Aries man slowly starts to dwindle. The rush of meeting you has probably dwindled down a bit.
There is nothing wrong with this by the way, but I know this can be quite concerning for some women who enjoy texting and communicating throughout the day with their partner.
But, if you’re thinking there might be another reason why you’re hearing less and less from your Aries man, then you might be right. A woman’s intuition is always on the mark. If you think something else is going on with him and that is why he is ignoring your texts then you might want to check this out.
Here are some of the explanations why an Aries man is ignoring your text messages:
Your Aries Man Is Very Busy, And He Puts Off Texting
This is where some women become quite confused. In the beginning, your Aries guy was so excited with you and probably texted you a whole lot, until you two started spending lots of time together.
With time, the texts started to decrease because he was with you so much that he didn’t need to text.
The typical and true Aries kicks into the fact that he doesn’t actually like texting. He did it to win your heart and when he himself was giddy like a schoolboy.
With time, things change and he changes with it. He becomes less text message-oriented. He isn’t answering your texts as much anymore because he’s busy doing other things.
He made time for you before because he wanted to make sure he secured the relationship with you and impressed you.
Now he doesn’t think texting is important, so unless you ask him a question, he may not respond to you. He figures that you know he’s busy and so he doesn’t think you’re going to be angry or hurt.
The Aries man doesn’t always realize that he needs to keep in better touch via text, especially when he’s busy with work or other things. This is a topic you’ll have to approach with him if it bothers you not being in contact over the phone.
Tell him how you feel about him not texting. Don’t get angry with him or lash out. Just tell him that you miss him and when he doesn’t respond, that at least sometimes it makes you feel as if he doesn’t care.
There are also times when he’ll be busy with something and has the intention to reply to you but then forgets because he gets sidetracked.
That doesn’t explain if he’s ignoring you for longer than you’re comfortable with though, so let’s explore more reasons.
Are you still with me?
Excellent! Let’s dig into other scenarios in which an Aries man avoids your texts.
The Most Common Reasons Why An Aries Man Avoids Your Texts
He Lost His Taste For Texting Small Talk
This goes with the fact that he hates to text if he doesn’t have to. The thing about him is that he wants to talk about important things if you’re going to text.
Saying things like “hey, thinking of you” doesn’t work like it did in the beginning. He’ll think to himself that it’s sweet you sent it, but he won’t see a reason to reply.
Something else is that over time, texts start to get boring to him. The Aries man hates being bored. Again, he’ll look at your message and then go about his business without replying.
I know this is super frustrating, but this is who the Aries man is. It would probably be more effective to call him but again, don’t bore him with small talk.
Another thing you can do is text him something very different from your norm. Bring up some exciting or intriguing news. That may spark his attention again.
Find new topics you can get his interest with. Reignite the passion you two once had. Don’t let him get bored with texting!
The Aries Man Needs Some Space
There is nothing worse for an Aries man than the feeling that he cannot be himself and do what he wants, when he wants. If you’ve been very close and he hasn’t had any space or time to himself, he will pull back.
The Aries man avoids your text when he feels you are holding too tightly to him. He really doesn’t like women who are clingy or needy.
Sometimes, he’ll actually tell you what is going on and other times he’ll just disappear or ignore you. Make sure that you’re offering him time to himself or with his friends.
An Aries will feel smothered or chained down if he’s not able to do what he wants at least some of the time. He realizes there has to be compromise, but he doesn’t always know enough to ask.
This is why he might start ignoring your text messages out of the blue. Think back about how it’s been over the last few months. Has he had any time to be alone or to do his own thing?
If not, then you’re going to have to change that (and quickly!) so you don’t lose him. In this case, the quietness with texting may only be the first step before breaking it off.
When you’ve looked back and figured out that you did in fact not give him space then it’s important you reach out to him to let him know your error and tell him you’d like to talk to him about it.
Hopefully, he’ll get back to you and call you or meet up with you to discuss what happened, how to change it, and where to go from here.
He’s Angry With You…
It’s not hard to believe that he would get angry. Aries is a fire sign, after all. They tend to be quick-fused when it comes to their tempers.
If you two had an argument or you did something that pissed him off then yes, he will ignore you. He is one of the signs that give you the silent treatment until they feel able to face you again.
Hopefully, you didn’t do something that pushed him away totally. If you can think back and see that you two did have a nasty argument or something happened that made him angry, you’ve got to act fast!
Try calling him instead of texting him to tell him that you apologize for your role in making him mad.
There may still be a chance to work through this. He won’t work on it if you don’t apologize though.
If you really and truly have no idea why he’d be mad at you, then that’s what you approach him with. Tell him you aren’t sure why you ticked him off but you’d like to apologize if that is the case.
At least he’ll know that you’re actually willing to work through it and have empathy for his side of this.
Your Aries Man Lost His Interest In The Relationship
This is the hardest one to deal with. If your Aries man has detached from you and feels the relationship isn’t working for him anymore, then he will start ghosting you.
An Aries man avoids your texts when he no longer has feelings for you. This might be when you’ve looked back and cannot find any reason why things aren’t going well.
You know for sure you guys didn’t fight, you didn’t do anything to make him mad, and you’ve let him have space but yet he’s ignoring you.
Please understand that it doesn’t mean that just because he ignores a few texts that this is the case, certainly not. It’s when you go for a week or two at a time with no response.
It’s like when you open up your inbox to see that he’s read the messages but isn’t replying that it really sinks in. Something is up with him and he’s purposefully not talking to you.
Sometimes, instead of being blunt and telling you he wants to break up, he’ll ghost you for a while and hope that you get the message.
What can you do if this is the case or if you aren’t sure?
As difficult as it will be, you will have to pull back from him. Stop sending him texts and stop calling him. If he wasn’t doing it on purpose, he’ll notice you’re quiet and reach out.
If he was truly ghosting you because he feels like it’s over for him, he will not reach back out. So, give yourself a certain amount of time to process it and then wash your hands of him.
This is the worst way an Aries man can be, but what is even more horrible is when he does speak up about his feeling disconnected. Sometimes they can be verbally nasty.
He may be very mean to you or treat you like you’re nothing to him. So, when you think of it, being ghosted may be the easier way to break up. That might be what he’s thinking as well.
He doesn’t want to be unkind to you but if you aren’t “getting it” he’ll probably say harsh things to push you away.
Take the signs for what they are worth. You now have the ammunition you need to figure out if your Aries man is still with you or if he’s done.
What To Do If An Aries Man Is Not Texting (Back)? – Ideas To Bring Him Back
It is so annoying when an Aries man seems to be all in at first, and then suddenly disappears into thin air and you never hear from him again. This can be absolutely heartbreaking as you just love connecting with your Aries man.
There are definitely a few things you can do to get an Aries man to text you back, and trust me, it is a lot simpler than you might expect!
Remember when the passion was really burning? When you two could hardly keep your hands off each other? You’ve got to bring that back! What exactly did you two do back then? What was exciting?
You need to figure out that recipe and try it again. Things may have changed since then, but if he still loves and cares for you, he will be into it. Do spontaneous things with or for him.
Try to let him be your “hero” a little here and there. It excites him to do things for you sometimes. Not all the time though –don’t be needy or he’ll get turned off.
Just here and there, make him want to help you. Ask him to do something that he knows you know how to do, but you want him to help you with. Such as opening jars, reaching something up high, car problems, etc.
Get Him To Miss You
Find things to do to keep yourself busy. Don’t be at his beck and call. Don’t wait around for his texts. Make him wait a bit. Also pull back on your own texting. He needs to miss you in order for him to want to reach out.
Yes, I understand the fear of losing him if you aren’t reaching out touching base. However, if he’s now reliant on you to initiate, then he’ll expect it to stay this way and doesn’t realize you want him to reach out first.
So, make some changes in your routine and shake things up a bit. If you’re used to reaching out to him daily, skip a day and see what happens. Skip two days, and see if he doesn’t reach out to ask you what’s up.
He’s not going to assume you’re done with him for missing a day or two in between texts. It’s just a way of him to not hear from you which should make him wonder why.
Again, don’t always be available either. Go out with your friends, do stuff with your family, and keep busy. The less you’re around to spend time with him, the more he will revive his hunting skills and want to chase you again.
Confront Him About It
This is the most direct route to seeing that your Aries man will get back on track and start to initiate again or if he never was, it could get him to actually make an effort there.
Getting an Aries man to text can be as simple as telling him that you really love talking to him, but you wish he would try initiating more as it would be more exciting for you.
If he thinks that it will be a good thing for you and will make you happy, he may very well do that. This is especially true if he really cares for you or loves you.
While Aries men can be a bit selfish sometimes, they are also protectors of their loved ones. They would never let anyone mess with them. He’s an excellent man and provider.
All you really have to do is get his attention and talk to him about the way you are feeling about everything. You don’t have to be emotional. In fact, it works best if you do it in a cool, calm way.
Tell him that you don’t mind initiating sometimes, but you’d like it if he would at least meet you halfway on it. The same goes for making plans. Tell him it would be exciting if he made plans ahead of time for you two.
And if none of this ideas work, then there is a very special tactic I have up my sleeves that always works like magic to get an Aries man to text you back. Want to know what this is? Then look no further than this mind hack to make an Aries man text you back in an instant.

Physical Touch – How Touchy Feely Is He With You?
Answer 1 – He Is Very Touchy Feely With Me (+3 pt)
Things are looking good! When an Aries man is quite touchy-feely with you, then chances are great that he really likes you. He is a very physical and affectionate person. It is important to him to express the way he feels by being able to touch the woman he is interested in.
Answer 2 – We’re Not Really Touchy (0 pt)
Don’t fret! There is still a chance that an Aries man might be interested in you even though he isn’t very physical with you. He may very well have some of his other planets in Taurus or Pisces which can make him quite shy. It may also be that the two of you have just met and he is just being respectful of your space.
The Future – Does He Include You In His Plans?
Answer 1 – He Always Includes Me (+3 pt)
When an Aries man is always including you in his plans then chances are very good that he has deep feelings for you. He is taking this connection seriously and sees a future with you in it.
Answer 2 – He Never Includes Me (0 pt)
There is a side to an Aries man that can sometimes come across as a little selfish. So him not including you isn’t to say that he isn’t interested in you, he might just assume that you know that you are included.
Protective – Does He Protect You?
Answer 1 – He Is Very Protective Over Me (+1 pt)
As the warrior of the Zodiac, it is quite a good indication that an Aries man likes you if he is protective over you. It means that he cares about you deeply and wants to know that you are safe.
Answer 2 – He Isn’t Protective At All (0 pt)
You have noticed that he doesn’t really care when you might be in danger. This not a very good sign because an Aries strongest drive is to protect the people he cares for. He might not be that interested in you.
Attention – Does He Pay Attention to You?
Answer 1 – He Always Listens To What I Have To Say (+2 pt)
An Aries man can be quite distracted as he has a million things on his mind, but when an Aries man pays attention to what you have to say, it means that he really cares about you and wants you to know he is listening.
Answer 2 – He Doesn’t Seem To Pay Attention To Me (-1 pt)
If you find yourself sharing an anecdote or an interesting fact with an Aries man, and he doesn’t seem like he is present or listening to what you have to say, then there is a chance that he might not be that interested in you. But there is also the chance that he just has a lot on his mind so try not to take it too personally.
Friends and Family – Has He Introduced You?
Answer 1 – I’ve Met All Of His Loved Ones (+4 pt)
This is an important one! If you have met all the big players in your Aries man’s life then chances are very good that he really likes you. This shows that he wants you to be a part of his life and that you are important to him.
Answer 2 – I Haven’t Met Anyone (-3 pt)
This depends solely on how long the two of you have been seeing each other. If you just started dating and you haven’t met any of his loved ones, then that is totally normal. But if it has been a few months, then I would be worried. He is probably not that into you.
There is a side to an Aries man that loves the idea of commitment and loyalty. He wants to fight for his woman, adore her, and worship her for as long as he possibly can.
For the right woman, an Aries man can certainly commit and make a serious change in his lifestyle. Sure, he’ll still be adventurous and need his freedom, but the right girl will give this to him.
This is why an Aries man will never settle and just go for what is available to him because he knows that somewhere, someone can give him exactly what he needs in his relationship, and he is willing to wait for it, and so should you.
If an Aries man is messing you about and doesn’t give you the same kind of love in return, then he definitely isn’t worth the effort or your time. You should definitely rethink what it is he is actually offering you, because if it is nothing, then you should definitely leave.
