To get your own way tell them they are being mean and closed minded. Be vulnerable, not by crying lots but by sighing at the sorry state of world affairs. Also if an Aquarius man really likes you he will hide it. )Also they might do this moody thing where they decide you are too good for them and are downright nasty. I make damn sure to let a woman in my life know she's my Queen. I did not date nor did I have sex with him but he was sending all of the mixed signals that you described.
There is a lot of chemistry between these two zodiac signs.
An aquarius prefers cultural activities and will want to get to know you on an intellectual level before bonding emotionally.
You will need to be witty and opinionated to win an aquarius's attention. An aquarius may take awhile to trust you, but when they do you will have a loyal, kindhearted partner.
As per an Aquarian male, the best way to pass the time is to probe into people's life and know their innermost feelings. He wants to hide his feelings from everyone and deliberately makes his reactions complex, just for the fun of fooling others.
Love is just another experience for him, till he has been driven to the point of the altar.
