How to make your Aquarius man leave you

Aquarius manThough Aquarius may seem like one of the most complicated signs in the zodiac, they are actually quite simple to figure out. Ruled by the trickster planet Uranus, the Aquarian loves to do the opposite of what we want, expect or think. “Contrary” is the word to watch with Aquarius. So maybe you’re getting tired of your Aquarius’ need to be different, rebellious and “outside the box,” and are looking for a way to get your Air sign man to leave you. Of all the signs in the zodiac, Aquarius is probably one of the easiest to get rid of. Not only will they not take it personally, they may not even notice, as their general level of detachment can keep them somewhat removed from the day-to-day activities of the average person. They are also the most inclined of all the signs to really end up being one of your friends post-breakup, and in fact, you both may enjoy this relationship even more than your romantic one, as Aquarius thrives more in situations of friendship than deep intimate relating. Read on for some practical tips to drive an Aquarius man away:

Ask for More

The first step in getting your Aquarius man to leave you is to demand more time, energy, commitment, attention or emotional intimacy. More even than the average man, Aquarius men need space and freedom to roam and wander. When they begin to feel constricted, confined or hampered from this desire, they simply rebel and take whatever time and space they need without asking for it. Once you ask for more, you may find they simply disappear, no questions asked.

Be Conventional

Nothing bores an Aquarius quicker than normality. So if you once wowed them by sharing your revolutionary new idea for communicating with aliens, or found common ground in your shared hobby of collecting used ice-cream sticks, drive your Aquarius away by showing an interest in the status-quo. Say yes to the nuclear family, the white picket fence, and the American dream. Faster than you can say, “apple pie,” your Aquarian will be out the door.

Be Honest

If you really, really want your Aquarius to leave you, the best thing to do is simply to be honest and tell them you want out. While this may make the Aquarius love you more — since they have a deep respect for truthfulness and honesty — they will also likely be able to quickly let go and move on. Their distant emotional nature can lend them an air of detachment that can actually be welcome in a break-up situation.

So if you’re trying to get rid of an Aquarius man, it’s clearly not all that hard to do. The trickier task is how to catch them and keep them in the first place, but that’s a whole other blog post….

  1. omg what’s this?.. a hipster in pj’s? 😀

    “he may not even notice” priceless!

  2. Can you please write a blog about catching and keeping an Aquarius man.. Would make my life so much easier.

  3. Pisces Queen says:

    Depending on your sign there are several in the forum discussions link under compatibility and sun signs…you should check them out or you can start a forum discussion about it yourself

  4. well this blog was also sort of a tongue in cheek, contrarian way (my moon is in aquarius after all…), to tell you how to catch and keep one-
    basically-do the opposite of what you would do to drive them away…

    Aquarians need space, independence, quirkiness and honesty-in a nutshell….

    but beyond that-look and see what their venus and mars are in, because that’s what the heart of the love “drive” is going to be about…..

  5. I had to change my whole self and completly ignore him it was bad because he reacted terribly but Im happy I made that choice.

  6. If the Aquarian doesn’t catch the hint:

    1.) Read their emails and go through their cell phone list. Ask them who each person they contact is.

    2.) Ask them to account for each minute they are away from you.

    3.) Interrupt their conversations with their friends.

    4.) Ask them why they don’t talk to their mother more.

    5.) Try to talk to them during their favorite science fiction show.

    That should do it.

  7. The Gods forbid you should interrupt me during Battlestar Galactica!

  8. I love it! I have this psychotic aquarius male that won’t leave me alone. These ideas may work. Next time he texts or emails, I will ask him to account for every minute he has been away because I miss him so much.I’ll tell him I’m in love him and want to plan the rest of our life together… It will be hard to tell such a big fat lie, but the end result will be worth it!!! To never see or hear from him again in my lifetime will be heaven! Thanks for the hints!!!!

  9. me-
    Let us know how it goes!
    thanks for reading:)

    I found this article amusing. You never see how to’s when trying to get rid of a man! If you want to get rid of an aquarius man quit your job and spend all of his money aimlessly. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, god of money. If he is in a commitment with someone that doesn’t have future goals of becoming successful he will run out the door. He doesn’t like the sob stories, gushy feelings, and clinginess. Don’t give him any air to breathe and he will ditch you in a hot second. 🙂 Hope this helps!

    Make an Aquarian leave? LOL
    Most of us are wondering how to get him to stay…… To make him leave all you have to do is know one, he’ll leave, they always leave whether you give space or not, love him he’ll leave, dont love him, he’ll leave…. These guys just “leave”

  12. I don’t think those hints work for all Aquarius men out there. I have an Aquarius bf and we’ve been together for almost two years now. I’ve done most things you and the readers advised like:

    Asking for More (I’m always complaining, I’m very emotional as well LOL)
    Being Conventional (I really think in a traditional way regarding to relationships)
    Being honest (I’m freaking honest most of the time )
    Talking to him (a lot) while he is watching his favorite TV show (I do that all the time 😀 ). And his fave TV show has nothing to do with science fiction.
    Although I have done all those things, he never left me (I tried to leave him, eventually it didn’t work). I think I’m lucky I got a different type of Aquarius man.
