Break-ups suck, there’s no sugarcoating it. There is that tiny spark of hope, however, that maybe, just maybe they will come back.
If you currently find yourself in that same position with an Aries man, let’s take a look at whether or not he’ll come back!
How does an Aries man handle a breakup?
First, let’s dive into how an Aries man deals with a breakup.
This will be crucial knowledge going forward, as we need to know how he handles it in order to determine if he’ll come back.
A look into Aries men
Aries men can be impulsive when it comes to relationships. As quickly as he plunged headfirst into it, he will leave just as fast.
The transition from his passionate love to the cold-hearted breakup can happen in what feels like the blink of an eye.
The good news? When an Aries man breaks up with you, he might want to still be friends, but he will not pretend to feel any passion when he doesn’t.
At least you know where you stand with this sign!
They quickly move on
I know, you probably don’t want to hear this, but if an Aries man breaks up with you, he can be very quick to move on.
While you are still speechless, trying to process what just happened, he may be already out the door and looking for a new romance.
This doesn’t mean he is definitely gone and won’t come back to you, though.
An Aries’ impulsive nature tends to make him go after what he wants right this second, so he might date someone new, just to come back a little later.
They don’t like to be broken up with
You’re probably thinking “Duh, who likes that?”, but Aries men really take it to the next level, believe me!
In fact, if an Aries man suspects that your relationship might not be on the sturdiest ground right now, he will try to beat you to it and break up with you first.
When you dump him, an Aries man might make things ugly, calling you things and yelling.
Even though he would never admit how much he cares about you and how much the breakup hurts, it does.
Aries’ out-lashing nature is just a cover-up for his insecurity and feelings of unworthiness.
He will go out of his way to convince you and everyone else that he is doing just fine, even though he’s really not.
An Aries man might play games
After a break-up, Aries men tend to resort back to almost childish games.
To boost his own confidence, he might:
- Talk badly about you behind your back
- Flaunt a new partner in front of you to make you jealous
- Brag about how badly you want him back
Why does an Aries man come back?
There are 7 reasons Aries men tend to keep returning, no matter what!
In my own experience, Aries men are the most prone to leaving a relationship and coming back again, so that’s good news for you!
1) They are very touchy
Aries men love physical touch, it’s definitely their biggest love language.
When in a relationship, they will always want to spend quality time with you and be around you.
Turns out, no matter if you were the one breaking up or him, he will miss the aspect of physical touch in your relationship, which can be a reason for him to come back.
This is especially true when you notice him getting more touchy with you again, trying to get your attention, and being more playful.
However, proceed with caution!
Touch can also be a mere sign of horniness for him, so don’t get your heart in it too quickly!
2) Aries men care
As much as an Aries man may play off his feelings and act like he is a coldhearted rock, this zodiac sign really cares deeply.
If he wants you back, you will notice many acts of kindness, like:
- Sending you flowers
- Paying attention to you
- Trying to be there for you
- Doing you a favor
Have you noticed any of these things lately? Then chances are good he might want to come back to you!
3) He is just curious
Unfortunately, some guys are not totally in the game when they decide to come back.
A popular reason for an Aries man to come back to you is when he feels like you’re about to move on from him.
That sparked his curiosity, and he comes waltzing back into your life.
Careful, sometimes all they do is come in, tear open all the wounds you were healing, and walk out on you again.
Turns out some men just like to keep tabs on their exes.
To figure out whether that’s his reason for coming back, don’t give in to his charms too quickly.
If he is persistent, there might be more to him coming back than just curiosity!
4) Aries men are needy
No matter how “okay” an Aries man seems after a break-up, they are actually often wrecked inside.
His neediness may be a reason for him to come back to you.
An Aries man will try to prove to you that he can’t do any better and that he’s hurting.
If he is really serious and in love with you, he will tell you his plans for the relationship in the future, so that you know he is not kidding around.
5) You are a priority to him
In case you should be asking yourself how you would know if an Aries man wants to come back, you would just know, trust me.
If you’re his priority, you will not need to read an article to look for signs of that, he will give you no doubt about it.
Aries men are great at giving you attention, which makes it easy to spot when they are interested in you again.
Pay attention to whether he is aware of your needs, or if he is just randomly reaching out to you.
How can you get an Aries man to come back?
You might be asking yourself what you can do to get an Aries man to come back to you.
Before we dive into this, I want to mention that you don’t need to do anything to get someone back.
If they want to come back, they will, and if they don’t, would you really want to be with them?
Think about it: why would you want someone who doesn’t want you the way you are?
Why would you want to change just for someone to like you, instead of finding someone who unconditionally loves you?
On that note, my tips for getting an Aries man back will have nothing to do with changing yourself for him.
There are a few tips I can give you on how to interact with that Aries man of yours, but please note that every tip of changing your life is directed to be for you, not for him, okay?
No big change about yourself should ever be made for someone else, your own happiness and wellbeing should always stand in the foreground.
Now: before I keep rambling, let’s dive into the tips and tricks to get your Aries man back!
1) Give him the space that he needs
If your Aries man was the one to break up with you, he will most likely want some space.
Not giving him the room to breathe that he yearns for will do nothing but push him further away, believe me.
Do you know the saying “If you love something, let it go, if it comes back to you, it’s yours forever.”?
It’s the same with Aries men.
Constantly checking up on him after the break-up, telling him how miserable you feel, and trying to win him back right away will do the exact opposite of what you’re intending.
2) Be harder to reach
Being hard to reach carries a sense of mystery and intrigue. It will help an Aries man miss you and wonder what you’ve been up to.
What does that mean for you?
Try to limit the contact you have with him as much as possible.
A great way to go about this is the no contact rule. You might have heard of it, it’s a great tool for breakups.
Basically, you set yourself a time frame (a month is a pretty good starting point), and you refrain from any and all contact with your ex.
- No texting
- No calling
- No liking social media posts
- No commenting on social media
- No tagging in posts
A month can sound daunting at first, but trust me, the time will go by fast and it will get easier the longer you do it.
In case he texts you, you can of course evaluate whether you want to reply or keep up the no contact rule.
What’s in it for you?
Apart from making your ex wonder what happened to you and probably miss you, you are giving yourself the space you need to heal a bit.
Whether you end up getting back together or not, heartbreak is heartbreak, and you will need time to process it.
Aries men are known to live for “the chase”. Playing it cool and staying on the down-low will spark his interest, for sure.
Definitely set yourself a time frame. Vague statements such as “I won’t text him for a while” will only end up in those 3am “I miss you” texts.
And we all know what a bad idea that is, don’t we?
3) Listen to him and compromise
When you are meeting your ex after the breakup, make sure to truly listen to what he has to say.
Chances are he knows that you want to get back together, and he might feel the same.
However, there is a reason the relationship ended the first time around, and these issues need to be addressed.
Try your best not to get too defensive when talking about these things.
Be patient and let your Aries man know that you are willing to hear him out and work on the problems you faced the first time around.
This is the time to be willing to compromise, but don’t serve him any bullsh*t you don’t plan on following through with.
That’s a surefire way to have the relationship fail a second time around.
4) Don’t live in the past
Some signs are prone to be nostalgic and love to revel in their happy memories.
Aries men are not these zodiac signs.
They like to focus on the future and on moving forward, so in order to decide to give it another go, they don’t care about the beautiful time you had together.
All they are interested in is the present moment and the future and how that will look.
Turns out your best shot at getting him back is to simply acknowledge what happened, but then put your focus on how things are right this moment.
By doing that, chances are good that your Aries man will also be more optimistic about a future together.
5) Don’t make him jealous
I know, it’s incredibly tempting to flaunt a new lover in front of your Aries ex to show him how desirable you are, especially if he was the one breaking up with you.
As we established in the beginning, Aries men tend to move on quickly, potentially even trying to make you jealous with a new woman.
However, this is unfortunately not a two-way street. As soon as you show your ex that you’re seeing another man, he will believe it’s over for good between you two.
I know, unfair, right?
But trust me on this, no matter what games he is playing, doing the same for him will not do you any favors in trying to get back together.
6) Reinvent yourself
Okay, now we’re at the point that can get a little problematic.
I told you before that you shouldn’t change yourself for a man, and I still wholeheartedly back up that opinion.
However, Aries men love novelty and I do believe that, if done for the right reasons, this step will actually help you feel empowered.
So, if you feel like it’s time for a change in your life, take this opportunity and reinvent yourself!
Not only will it enhance chances of getting back with your Aries man, but it will also help you feel good about yourself and move on.
Now: what can you do to reinvent yourself?
Here are a few ideas:
- Get a new haircut
- Change your style (donate or sell your old clothes and get new ones)
- Change your job or career
- Follow your passions
- Try out a new hobby or skill
- Take a trip someplace new
- Move to a new apartment, house, city, or even country!
And these are not all you could do, of course!
Have fun with this step, it is always such a blast to reinvent yourself a bit.
It always reminds me of childhood days, when every day, I would pretend to be someone else.
Maybe the relationship kept you in a box you thought you should be in. Well, now is your time to break out of the box and be who you always wanted to be!
Not only will that strengthen your self-love, but you might even catch your Aries ex’s interest in the process.
7) Live your own life
One thing that is for sure is that Aries men tend to be turned off by someone extremely codependent, clingy, and desperate.
They love strong and independent partners who have their own life.
So, to get him back, a great way to go about it is to start living your own life!
And the best thing about this?
It doesn’t matter what he ends up doing or not doing, you will end up with an amazing life either way!
So, what does it even mean to live your own life?
Oftentimes, people put their goals and aspirations on the backburner when they enter a relationship.
They prefer spending their time with their loved ones over working on their passions.
Now that you’re single, you have all this space and freedom to finally pursue every goal you’ve ever had.
Ideally, when you get into a relationship again (with your Aries man or someone else) you will have such a great life of your own, that the relationship will not be the sole focus of your existence anymore.
That will make any future relationship exponentially more healthy, believe me!
It is so important for partners to have their own life outside of the relationship, so it’s about time you get yours back!
What could you do to live your own life?
Taking care of yourself is crucial in order to be happy.
Think about it: the better you feel about yourself, the nicer your life feels.
That means taking care of yourself on all levels: physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Physically, taking care of yourself looks different for everyone.
Some things you can never go wrong with are:
- Keeping proper hygiene
- Moving your body every day
- Resting when you’re tired or exhausted
- Getting fresh air and sunshine every day
- Drinking plenty of water
- Eating nourishing foods (for body and soul)
- Make sure to get plenty of vitamins and nutrients
- Getting sufficient sleep
For mental health, there are of course also many things you can do.
Contrary to popular belief, mental health is just as important as physical health.
You can try:
- Seeing a therapist
- Starting a journal
- Limiting social media
- Doing shadow work
- Having self-love rituals
Spiritually, taking care of yourself means nurturing the connection to whatever it is you believe in.
In case you don’t have anything you believe in, focus on nurturing the connection to self.
- Go out into nature
- Do breathwork
- Do a tarot reading
- Visit a place that feels holy to you
In order to live a beautiful life, you should also follow your passions a bit more.
Maybe you have neglected this in your relationship, or you aren’t even sure what your passions are.
Either way, try to put the focus on things you love and life will feel a lot more amazing all of a sudden.
In case you don’t have anything you feel passionate about, don’t fret and instead get excited!
This is an amazing opportunity to try out new experiences and discover aspects of yourself you might not have known until now.
You can try:
- A new sport
- Joining a club
- Learning an instrument
- Trying out a new skill
- Traveling to a new city
The options are endless, and you can have so much fun exploring!
Lastly, personal goals are what drive your ambition.
Are there any goals you have always wanted to achieve, but never had the time or energy for?
Now is your time to shine!
- Financial goals (like starting to invest)
- Career goals (like getting a promotion)
- Athletic goals (like running a 5K)
- Artistic goals (like finishing a painting)
- Personal goals (like improving the relationship with your family)
I’m sure there is something you would love to accomplish.
Take this time to focus on achieving your goals.
It’s really all about you
We’ve talked about Aries men a lot in this article, and about how you can get him back the fastest.
However, by now you have probably realized the main point here:
The focus should be on yourself.
Yes, there is a good chance your Aries man will come back, and there are signs to look out for and steps to take to speed up the process, but it is still no guarantee.
Don’t waste your life trying to get someone back who chose to leave.
Instead, shift your focus on yourself and how you can make your life one worth living.
Not only will that make you seem more attractive (who doesn’t love a woman who knows what she wants and has a great life?), but it will also help you fall back in love with life.
Relationships are great, but they aren’t the only thing that makes life beautiful.
Once you realize that, you are setting the foundation of a future full of healthy, strong relationships.
If he comes back, good for him, if not, it’s his loss.
He will believe it, so now you just need to make yourself believe it, too.
