What a Pisces Man Wants in a Woman

The Pisces guy is like an endangered species that require special protection. It's tough, first of all, being so sensitive, and male. Some Pisces guys deal with the harsh reality of life through escapism and addictions. This sign has the reputation of being loose with the truth, though they might argue that "reality is fluid." 

Luckily, he's often wise and sees beyond the usual social patterns and judgments. A Pisces man comfortable in his own (thin) skin is wonderful to be around.

Other Signs He'll Seek

As for compatibility with others, he gets on best with the rest of the water signs but also makes surprising matches, since his is the last sign and the one that contains them all. 

He seeks someone who values empathy and compassion and his own creative ways. His Sun's planetary ruler is Neptune, the orb of fantasy, high romance, and escapism. In love, he gravitates to the otherworldly; he wants love to save him from the crass, materialistic world. Love is a cloister to hide in, a vibe to find faith in.

The Pisces guy is tuned into waves, thoughts, and physical moves. He will read you, body and soul. He's intrigued by someone with a special way of seeing the world: an artist and dreamer like him. He's looking for a friend who will respect his ever-changing rhythms and need for solitude. A psychic space cushion between you—a sense of guarding both your private inner worlds—is a good foundation to build upon.

Real Life Matters

Real life, however, doesn't always happen that way. If there's an attraction, we often merge and mind meld, then see what happens. The mutable Pisces man absorbs the moods and realities of others. If he gets bogged down too quickly in your drama, the fish swims away. Less is more at the start.

Create wonderful memories on those first dates by going to unusual places with magical atmospheres. The one-off diner is better than a chain, a quiet cafe is preferred over a raucous "popular" establishment. Plan enchanting day trips or other activities, and be sure to bring a camera.

Boundaries He'll Need

One challenge for water sign Pisces is boundaries, and a young male in the sign of the Fishes can often be overwhelmed. He may be wary of getting too close, knowing he "takes on" the psychic soul material of others. It can be maddening to carefully build a rapport only to see him flee if it's too much. He'll need a lover who understands he's tuned into everything. If he appears to take his time, it's because he's moving in many worlds.

It's often said you'll have to make the first move with a Pisces. Keep in mind it can be as subtle as a glance or some well-timed innuendo. Perhaps he'd respond to a gift that is spiritual in some way, that adds to his sanctuary, like a candle, music, or a book of mystical poetry.
