Does he like me? Why hasn’t he made any moves yet? What is he thinking? These are some of the things that might be running through your mind when you’re trying to figure out whether or not a shy Aries man likes you more than a friend.
Aries guys are known as “real men” in general. They are determined, often stubborn, and willing to fight for their dreams. But what can you really do when you meet a good but shy Aries man?
Figuring out whether or not a shy Aries man actually has feelings for you can be tricky. There may be subtle signs that indicate a shy Aries guy likes you, which you might completely miss if you don’t know what to look out for.
Let’s take a look at some of the telltale signs a shy Aries guy likes you and what you can do to help him feel comfortable and confident around you.
Are Aries Men Shy When They Like Someone?
Ruled by Mars—a planet associated with passion, energy, and action—Aries men are fiery individuals who are usually not shy. They are assertive, confident, and real firecrackers.
But naturally, there are those who can be a bit shy, but they are not the majority. Some Aries men may be shy in specific situations or even when they meet new people.
Most Aries men will be shy about flirting or seeking attention. Even if they aren’t always attention-seeking, they love it when others notice them.
If an Aries man is around someone he likes, he may exhibit shyness, but even then won’t be timid. Aries may seem shy at first, but once they open up, they overcome their shyness in order to get to know someone better.

5 Telltale Signs A Shy Aries Guy Secretly Likes You
1. When An Aries Man Gets Nervous When He Is Around You
Shy or not, an Aries man will get nervous around women he has a crush on. You might notice that he stammers when he speaks, blushes more than usual, doesn’t make complete sense when he speaks, or is a little sweaty when he’s around you.
These are all signs an Aries man is nervous and, more than likely, likes you more than a friend.
Aries men are not capable of lying or playing games, and they are unable to hold any grief, anger, or love feelings inside for too long. This is why they are easy to read and even easier to handle. You will know right from the start from his body language whether he likes you or not.
2. He Does Whatever He Can To Please You
If an Aries man gives you his affection and attention freely, even when shy, this is a good indicator that you have a secret admirer! He will gladly initiate conversation with you, and shower you with kindness. In other words, he will be romancing you completely. He will tend to have dreams about romantic love.
In any case, what an Aries is looking for, is a “real” feminine woman by his side, because his masculine energy will be heightened most of the time. He may not show it first, he aims to win you over, but during the process, he does not want you to be aware of it.
Remember, he is secretive and shy, but he will fight for you. Once he reaches the level of comfort, he will do what he intended to do in the first place!
3. He Lets You In On His Secrets
An Aries man tends to find it difficult to let others in, so if he’s opening up to you and revealing more about himself, it’s a sign that he trusts you and probably has feelings for you. Vulnerability is one of the signs that a shy Aries guy likes you.
If he acts in a vulnerable way, then this is a surefire sign that he is into you. Don’t laugh at him; this is a big no-no. Try instead to be supportive, and this will give him the green light to start chasing you at last.
It depends on his level of comfort, his maturity, and whatever baggage he may have from the past to determine how ready an Aries man is to commit. He’ll let you know if he isn’t ready.
So if he lets you know and you keep trying to push him, he’ll start pulling back or acting out toward you. So even though you may think you need to have him commit quickly, you may want to hold off a bit.
4. He Creates Opportunities To Be Close To You
Aries guys belong to the category of simple men. He is born as a soldier, and his needs are very straightforward. However, his heart is sensitive, and his dreams are noble. If you treat him with kindness, he will automatically like you and even start to love you very quickly.
If your Aries man is silent and shy and nothing unpleasant has happened recently in his life, then he surely has some fragile feelings about you, and you should try to show patience when you are around him.
Aries guys can’t hold their grudges for too long, and if something is wrong, they will show it very soon. But if he likes you, he won’t think about it for ages. He will simply try to be somewhere close, and he will start a somewhat confusing conversation with you.
5. Pay Attention To His Body Language
If you’re curious as to whether or not your Aries man likes you or has a crush on you, pay attention to his body language. These are some of the telltale signs that a shy Aries guy likes you more than a friend:
- He fidgets a lot when he’s around you
- He stares at you you
- The way he hugs you tells you everything
- When he’s around you, he smiles a lot

How To Help An Aries Man To Open Up And Make The First Move
A quiet Aries man doesn’t open up easily. It takes a lot of time and patience to get an Aries man to open up, especially if he is shy and likes you. It all depends on his level of comfort and trust in you.
Listen to what he has to say, and show him compassion. He will appreciate your patience hugely, and you’ll see him slowly start warming up.
Be open and blunt about your feelings for him. Aries really needs things laid out for him. He assumes that others are as to the point as he is, so beating around the bush isn’t a great tactic with the Aries.
Basically, if you’re wondering something, ask him. He will appreciate you showing him what it is that you’re looking for. Eventually, he’ll know enough to tell you on his own what you’re looking for—to see him open up about his feelings for you.

It is not a bad thing, though, if a woman initiates contact, because an Aries man loves intelligent, strong, and talented women who aren’t afraid to take the room by storm. He wants a woman to let herself shine.
So if you want to take the initiative to talk to the Aries man who’s been eyeballing you all night, it would probably be appreciated. He is typically really good-looking and has his own allure.
Be fun-loving and spontaneous. Shower him with confidence or invite him on an outdoor adventure. An introverted Aries man will appreciate your straightforward approach and will do all the rest to win your heart.
If You Listen To Dating Coaches, You Can Lose Your Aries Man Forever…
Over the years, I’ve had a lot of my clients send me advice they got from dating coaches. They wanted to know if it would work with their Aries man.
And I literally wanted to scream with frustration.
Because most dating advice definitely will NOT work if you use it with Aries. You see, Aries men are VERY different from men of other signs.
And if you use standard dating advice with Aries, it can backfire. He might disappear forever and you’ll never hear from him again.
I don’t want that to happen to you. Especially when it is SO easy to draw him to you and get him to connect deeply with your heart.
So he’ll NEVER want to lose you. He’ll be wrapped around your finger… And it won’t take him long to put a ring on that finger either.
These phrases are the EXACT thing you need to turn everything around with him.
So… for heaven’s sake… DON’T listen to normal dating coaches! They give out the same advice for ALL men… which is absolutely insane. Because your wonderful Aries is NOT like other men… at ALL.
