Although Aquarius is not the most social zodiac sign, their air sign allows them to be friendly. The natives of this sign can effortlessly adapt to the energy that surrounds them enough to allow them to step in and showcase their brilliance.
Albeit, their presence shouldn’t intimidate you because this is a kind, helpful and people-oriented sign that is very tolerant of people. They love to give out their honest opinions and observations without any fear of being branded as different and weird.

Aquarius: Negative Personality Traits
Below are a few flaws that lace the Aquarius zodiac sign.
One of the negative attributes of these people is their inflexibility; Aquarius is a fixed sign. Even though they’re changemakers, they do not yield to others’ opinions easily.
They’re argumentative, rebellious, self-opinionated, and obstinate. To them, their way is the right way. Somehow, they always manage to overstretch their importance in people’s lives.
An Aquarius is eccentric, overburdened with inner conflicts, and distrustful of emotions unless tested and proven. A typical Aquarius is what you describe as weird. You’d find them liking and doing things very differently than other people. This attribute could mean that they’ll be alone for most of their lives.
Talking about loneliness, this sign wallows in it. They get bored and lonely even when surrounded by people. An Aquarius can be having a deep, interesting conversation with you this minute and the next they’re tired of talking to you.
Aquarius in Love and Relationship
Unlike other zodiac signs, the Aquarius sign does not base its feelings on emotions only. They’re moved by intellectual prowess and natural friendly vibes.
A relationship with an Aquarius will never be one of those adventures where there is tons of passion, but you better believe there’s a true friendship beneath the love.
As Aquarians are ruled by the air sign, they have a bit of a social streak in them that makes great companions for socialites who enjoy hanging out in group settings.
Aquarians have an innate self-confidence, which endears people to them. However, it often takes time for them to get to the point of commitment in a relationship. This is partly due to their inability to trust people easily.
They enjoy flirting and can keep to a long-term “friends with benefits” arrangement. Even when they are deep into their partner, they could up and leave if they don’t see a stable future. Sometimes the craving for independence counters their feelings.
Another reason why an Aquarius doesn’t commit fully to relationships is because they don’t want to depend on other people and they most definitely don’t want to be depended on.
They would sacrifice even a close personal relationship in order to maintain independence. They don’t believe in love being about putting other people’s needs above one’s own.
When Aquarians finally commit to a relationship, they are usually very devoted to their partner. Aquarian natives have a stubbornly loyal heart, especially when they’re with an ideal partner – an intellectual like them. In return, they want a constant assurance of stability.
This sign is mostly attracted to people with the same mental capacity as them. They want romantic partners that they can comfortably share their big ideas.
Aquarius is the perfect match for a Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. An Aquarius can hit it off with a Sagittarius in their first meeting with a strong possibility of making it long-term. But, Gemini is the most compatible sign with Aquarius. They’re both great intellectuals who share the same thirst for knowledge.
The same applies to Pisces “the fairytale lovers”. In the same vein, pairing the manipulative Cancer with an independent Aquarian might result in a struggle for supremacy instead of a love affair.
