24Aries Man: He Has To Feel Dominant
An Aries man has a huge personality and tends to be very masculine. He likes to be the one in charge and has the confidence to back up his alpha personality. That being said, he will resist a woman who likes to wear the pants in the relationship.
If he feels like he’s not in control of the situation, he sees it as a challenge to his manhood. He can be guarded and tends to push away strong women. He craves freedom and won’t put up with a needy lady, either. He’s complicated and can sometimes come across as broody.
23So Be A Damsel In Distress And He’ll Be All Yours
If you’re looking to hook an Aries man, the best way to do it is to act like you’re a damsel in distress.
It may seem absurd but he’s got quite an ego and would love nothing more than to be your knight in shining armor.
What could it hurt to act helpless? Stuck at a party with no ride home? An Aries man would jump at the opportunity to rescue you in a time of peril. Since he likes to win, let him be the victor. He’ll be loyal and loving if you allow him to be the winner in all situations.
22Taurus Man: He Worries That He’s Boring
If you find yourself close to a Taurus man, be prepared to wrestle with his practical nature. He can be an awesome provider but insecurities often lurk behind his determination. His goal oriented ways and need for success can make him an overachiever.
Deep inside, he probably worries that he’s boring. Stability is important in a relationship, but this guy needs to work a little bit harder to let loose and have fun.
He can be unsure of himself when it comes to planning a date night. Success is a priority for him so he might avoid the dating scene altogether.
21Remind Him Of His Fun Side And He’ll Play Along
The quickest way to a Taurus man’s heart is to remind him how to have fun. He can be so serious in his life that he craves a lighthearted partner to bring him out of his boring shell.
Work is important to him, so it takes a secure person to give him the time and space he might demand.

20Gemini Man: He Can Be Brutally Indecisive
The Gemini man can flip-flop in a heartbeat. He might demand freedom in one breath and then suddenly demand to be the focus of your attention with the next. His emotions tend to be all over the place, so he never has to worry about being boring. He likes to keep his partner on their toes.
Things can get bad if he feels like his needs aren’t being met. He is independent but wants someone who will be there for him when he needs them. If he feels neglected, he’s not afraid to let his lover know that he’s unhappy.
19He Can’t Resist A Confident Girl
It takes a woman who is very sure of herself to keep up with a Gemini man. His indecisive nature can be a challenge and he requires a secure lady to put up with his moodiness.

He can be emotional and somewhat fragile. If he doesn’t feel like he’s connecting on a deeper level, he becomes disconnected and a bit insecure.
If he isn’t getting what he needs from a girlfriend, he’ll just run to mama for love and acceptance.
