Is your Aries man suddenly a green-eyed jealous monster – for no obvious reason? Here're tips to handle an Aries man jealousy.

So you have started dating an Aries man and you’re asking yourself “Are Aries men jealous?”. Well, the short answer is yes. An Aries man jealous is a common thing—after all, he is ruled by Mars, the god of war! But have you ever wondered why do Aries men get jealous?

Aries men are certainly one of the most masculine, possessive, and powerful signs. Being wooed and adored by this man means that you belong to him exclusively, but why are Aries men so jealous?

Yes, he’s one of those “macho men,” and even possibly one of those guys who has somewhat traditional beliefs about gender roles. At least in some areas! When it comes to you being his girl, he’s not the type to tolerate other men giving you attention.

He’s not a tyrant, though! Aries men just like to be the center of your universe. So, when you’re not giving him enough attention or are giving attention to others, he can get a bit worked up.

If your Aries man is acting weird when it comes to your time, then keep reading…

Are Aries Men Jealous In A Relationship?

All in all, the Aries man is a dominant type of male. This means that he considers his wife to be HIS. This throws reason out the window sometimes. It’s not that he doesn’t know better, either.

He does, but sometimes it’s very difficult for him to keep his feelings under wraps. He feels things deeply and passionately. So when an Aries man is in love, he wants certainty and security.

Perhaps spending time alone with a male friend will not be acceptable if you decide to get more serious with an Aries man. Having your friend spend time with you and your boyfriend may help ease some tension.

Just keep in mind that an Aries man is the type of guy who is protective of his lady love. Not only does he want to make sure that you’re his, but he also wants to make sure that you’re safe at all times.

Communication is going to be a very important aspect of keeping your relationship fresh, exciting, safe, and secure. Here’s more on how to communicate effectively with an Aries man <<

His moon may counteract some of it, depending on what it is. However, the typical Aries male likes to flex his dominance and will not take well to male friends of yours. He may also want to always know where you are when you’re not together.

Do Aries Men Get Jealous Easily?

Yes, the Aries man IS jealous and possessive in most cases. If you’re not in his view, you’re possibly a victim of what he cannot control when he’s not there. It’s just how he’s programmed.

Why Are Aries Man So Jealous? 4 Reasons Behind It

You’re Not Paying Him Enough Attention

This is the number one reason why Aries men get jealous. Aries is the very first sign of the Zodiac, after all, which makes them a little, well, self-absorbed. However, this is not the self-absorption of someone malicious or even narcissistic. 

It’s similar to the self-absorption of an infant, who just wants their needs met — now! When a baby is hungry or needs attention, you shower them with what they ask for, plus plenty of cuddles and reassurance! 

Have you perhaps “neglected” your Aries man in any way? This is a small and simple fix, luckily!

You Have Too Many Male Friends

The truth is, Aries men like to be the alpha males. They are not team players, and they always have to “win.” This also means “beating” all the other men in your life, with you as the trophy. Yes, it’s a bit brutish, but in moderation it can be sexy, right? 

If you have a whole lot of male friends, expect your Aries man to feel a bit threatened. He may see them all as potential boyfriends that are after you, no matter how buddy-buddy you are with them. 

It’s a hard pill to swallow, but a typical Aries man will just not like it when you have more man friends around than he’s comfortable with. 

You’re Very Independent

Aries men may get jealous when you’re highly independent. On one hand, they love a woman with her own life and her own interests. It makes them want to chase you! On the other, if your independence takes up time and energy that might otherwise be spent on them, they can get a bit insecure. 

It’s always a fine line with the Aries man. Too much independence and he gets grumpy. Too little and he thinks you’re needy. No one said he was easy!

Here’s more on what an Aries man likes and dislikes in a woman.

He’s Feeling Insecure

Most people act jealous when they feel insecure. If your Aries fella is not feeling good enough for you, one of the ways he will show it is through jealousy. At heart, he might feel as if you’re out of his league or that he can’t make you happy. 

Insecurity is never a nice feeling, so act with care and compassion — this man does have a fragile ego that needs to be cared for!

How To Tell If An Aries Man Is Jealous? 3 Signs To Look For

He Sees You As A Possession

The first part of Aries problem is that he sees his woman as his prize. He cherishes her, he polishes her, and he wants to keep her. He becomes guarded and protective of her as well.

When this happens, any other male is a threat to him. In some cases, women are also threats to him as far as his girlfriend is concerned. A woman could cheat on him with either; therefore, both could be construed as possible enemies.

An Aries man wants a woman who is independent so that he can go out with the boys and do his own thing without her from time to time, but he doesn’t really want her to go out with her girls.

He Keeps You Isolated

You could meet someone new while out with your friends, or you could find romance with one of your friends. So paranoia sets in a bit. He doesn’t know what friends of yours, if any, are trustworthy.

He will be against all your plans to go out where his presence is excluded.

When you become an Aries man’s girlfriend, realize that you are HIS. This means he holds you to being 100% faithful, loyal, not looking, not flirting, etc. However, he can still flirt, look, and possibly cheat.

It’s a double standard with this guy. Not all Aries men cheat, but many of them do. They are Alpha males that think they are here to spread their seed, just like at the beginning of time. 

He Controls You All The Time

He wants to know where you are at all times, when you’ll be back, and who you are going with, just like parents. With his motives, however, he just wants to make sure he can find you whenever he wants.

This form of an Aries man jealousy is a form of control. If an Aries man thinks for one second that you could leave him or cheat on him, he may follow you or show up where you say you’re going to see if you’re there.

Aries men can become stalkers, no doubt. However, to get him to feel better about what you do, who you are with, and when you’ll come back, you have to condition him with it.

Start doing it; start inviting him out with your friends or inviting your friends over. Having him mingle with them a bit more may help him loosen up and not feel the need to try to keep you home so much.

Are Aries Men Possessive And Controlling?

Yes, Aries men are indeed possessive and controlling. His ego cannot take for his woman to be flirting with anyone else but him. However, he feels it’s okay for him to flirt with whomever he wishes. He does tend to have some double standards.

Aries men are very assertive and straightforward, but displaying possessiveness and control in an unhealthy way can lead to their constant doubts and insecurities in the relationship, and those issues must be addressed as soon as possible.

Aries rules the 1st house, which is the house of self and identity, and as such, he must be independent and self-reliant. He will not settle for a woman who is socially adaptable and has a wide circle of friends. He will start to doubt her actions when not around her, and this could lead to jealousy and possessive behavior.

How To Deal With A Jealous Aries Man

1. Shower Him With Attention!

Ladies, sometimes it’s really simple to deal with a jealous Aries man — just shower him with attention! This is very different from acting needy or clingy. It’s more about asking him how he’s doing and letting him take the lead. 

It means putting your arm around him in public or kissing him in front of friends. It’s noticing when he’s done something well and complimenting him on it. It’s basically being there exactly when he needs you to be, and not being too slow about it! 

You’ll see — he’ll be back to normal in no time at all!

Aries men are visual creatures, like most men. However, with him it’s more pronounced.

If your Aries man is being jealous, go out of your way to look good for him when it’s just the two of you. This means that you’ve noticed his feelings (which he will appreciate) and are signaling to him that you want to be seen by him and him alone.

Watch an Aries man jealousy become a thing of the past once you give him all the attention for an uninterrupted stretch!

4. Let Him Know That Other Men Could Never Compare To Him

This is a fun way to cool your Aries man’s jealousy — tell him very clearly that other men could never compare to him and he’s the only one for you. You could even throw in a few light-hearted complaints about your male friends.

Fluff up his ego, in other words, and don’t be shy about it! The more you do it, the more confident he’s going to feel, and the dimmer his jealousy will grow when he remembers that he is, in fact, the best in your eyes.

5. Be Extra-Affectionate With Him

Another way to let your Aries guy know no one else can compare to him is simply by being very affectionate with him. Cuddle him, kiss him, and get sexy in the bedroom with him more than usual. 

Stroke his muscles, and look adoringly at him — these old-school tricks work like magic with the macho Aries man! He can’t resist it when a lady “worships” him, he’ll truly feel like a god, and his jealousies will evaporate! As easy as that! 

Will An Aries Man Try To Make You Jealous?

An Aries man will try to make you jealous if he feels insecure. He needs constant reassurance that you love him back! He needs proof from you that you want him and love him. Once he realizes you have strong feelings for him, he will stop making you jealous.

He needs to understand that, just like him, you have needs and a desire to have some personal time as well. As long as you build a certain level of trust with him, he should understand that you know how to make the right choices.

Only time and patience can truly show him that you are loyal, faithful, and all his. Until that day comes, it may be a bit of a roller coaster for you with the Aries man. He’s complicated, but once he “gets it, he’ll forever be yours.
