Characteristics of a Pisces man

Not only does the Pisces male boast smouldering good looks, he’s generous and kind into the bargain. He is the charitable sort, the person who always volunteers first and digs deep into his pockets to help others in need.

He’s intuitive – he’ll study people’s body language in great detail - so they’ll be no hiding your true feelings from this man. He’ll also go out of his way to avoid any friction coming between you. This man will never raise his voice or start an argument.

The Pisces man in love

The Pisces man thinks with his heart rather than his head, so this can make him quite vulnerable. Add to that the fact he hates confrontation, and it’s easy to see why can find himself in relationships that are just not working. He seldom makes the first move, but will end up with an unsuitable partner because, in his mind, that’s better than being alone. In his fantasy world, love conquers all – and indeed, with the right person, all his dreams may come true.

How to date a Pisces man

Treat him gently – he’s an old-fashioned romantic who likes to take one step at a time. That said, when the Pisces male falls in love, he falls deep. Value your friendship and see what develops. If love is meant to be, it will happen.

Understand his wish to help others and do something worthy with him. Prove you can be generous with your time and talents too. His selflessness is something to be admired and applauded.

How NOT to date a Pisces man

He has an open-mind and will listen to everyone’s suggestions, but try not to be headstrong and obstinate. You may struggle to compromise, but for this relationship to work, now and again you need to go along with his ideas.

Keep your date stress-free. If you turn up in a flap, or unexpectedly lunge into a rant, he’ll panic. Even more so if your performance is witnessed by others. Try to remain calm at all times. Go on, count to 10.

The perfect date

The Pisces man is creative, spiritual, and a lover of art and music, so keep this in mind when planning your perfect date. Consider signing up together for a painting course, or attend a yoga class or tai chi session. 

Look in the local press to see if there is an orchestra playing nearby and enjoy a classical experience, or go to a jazz club. He’ll also just love a romantic afternoon wandering around galleries and exhibitions, stopping for coffee and a chat about what you’ve seen. Keep the mood light-hearted and you’re sure to click.

Compatibility

Perhaps surprisingly, this Water sign gets on remarkably well with Aries, and the other two Fire signs – Leo and Sagittarius. Somehow the Pisces male just connects with them, maybe in a subconscious way, but he has the ability to tame them somewhat. Relationships with Gemini and Aquarius, however, are not destined to last.

There’ll be something about a Scorpio that will make a Pisces male sit up and pay attention. Opposites do attract and if both are happy to be different, this could last the distance.

Famous Pisces males: Peter Andre, Daniel Craig, Chris Rea, Shane Richie, Alan Davies, Michael Bolton
