Let him know that he cannot have all your time up front.
Explain that it’s healthy for you two to have time apart once in awhile.
What this means is that the Aries man will want all your time yet if you question his personal space or time; he will not have a pleasant reaction.
He expects you to do what he says, not what he does.
It’s not that you’re pushing him away; it’s that you’re showing him, you are still YOU.
It’s easy for him to forget that he fell in love with you for your qualities of being independent and strong.
Just keep in mind that this is the type of guy that is protective of his lady love.
You can assure him and build his trust but it’ll always be in the back of his mind.
I would never encourage you to give up your friends for anyone because you should stick to your principles and those you love.
His ego cannot take for his woman to be flirting with anyone else but him.
However; he feels its ok for him to flirt with whomever he wishes. So when you’re establishing your relationship and taking it nice and slow; be sure that he understands that if you cannot flirt or if he doesn’t want you to flirt; that he also shouldn’t do it.
