How to Attract a Pisces Man
Why Set Your Heart on an Pisces Man?
Incredibly romantic, the Pisces man is nurturing and empathetic. If you’re looking for a relationship built on mutual affection and genuine concern, he’s you’re man.

Winning a Pisces Man.
Let’s begin with a word of warning. The Pisces man does not fall in love lightly. He is deeply romantic and will invest his heart and soul in a relationship. If you’re just looking for a bit of fun or let’s-see-where-this-might-lead kind of a relationship, it’s probably best to give the Pisces man a wide berth.
However, if you’re seeking a life partner and a soul mate, the Pisces man is the one for you.
At work, you won’t find it difficult to get the Pisces man alone. He likes to work under his own direction and always gets the job done, so long as he is allowed to do it his own way. For this reason, the Pisces man is often employed in trouble-shooter roles, moving from department to department.
Once you’ve got him to yourself, you’ll find the Pisces man to be extremely generous, loving and caring. He’ll want to hear all about your worries and woes. Don’t be afraid to hold back: the Pisces man is attracted to someone who appears to be in need, someone who needs his protection or support. This doesn’t mean he wants a partner who is weak, however. He’ll be just as in need of your support and your strength. For the Pisces man, romance is inextricably bound up with notions of cherishing and nurturing, defending and honouring. Love is a fantastical castle in which he and his partner are safe from the follies and cruelties of the world.
The fantastical castle image is particularly appropriate, as the Pisces man is something of a dreamer. He’ll be looking for a partner who doesn’t dismiss his flights of fancy, someone who will entertain even his most outrageous dreams. He’ll also be looking for someone who likes to ‘dream a little dream’ themselves from time to time, but not for someone who has their head in the clouds quite so much as him. In fact, the Pisces man is only too aware of his own propensity for letting his imagination run riot, and will seek out a partner who can provide a balancing influence, someone practical and sensible. So, let him see that you are imaginative and respect his fantastical musings but, at the same time, demonstrate that you also possess a significant no-nonsense streak, able to snap things back to reality with a click of your fingers.
To put things in the context of a relationship: if you were going on holiday together, the Pisces man would create a wonderful itinerary of places to go and things to do, but you’d have to remember the plane tickets, the passports, insurance, car hire…
The Pisces man is also very sensitive and is the zodiac sign most likely to suffer from chronic shyness. Take a gently-gently approach. Don’t overwhelm him or he’ll scuttle back into his shell and it may take you some time to pry him back out again. Try not to ridicule him, even if you’re only being playful, as he is easily wounded.
The Pisces man is also very empathetic. So you’ll need to be sensitive in your handling of others whenever he’s around. If you treat someone harshly and the Pisces man witnesses it, it can be almost as if you have behaved harshly toward him.
The Pisces man is kind and gentle, so it pays to be kind and gentle toward him.
The Ideal Date for the Pisces Man
Let him choose. Not only will he thank you for it, you’re almost certainly assured of a fun and interesting date, because the Pisces man is very creative and will tend to avoid conventional (i.e. boring) venues for a date.
If he does leave it up to you to choose (and he may well do, as it seems the gentlemanly thing to do), go for something romantic. Candles, flowers, violins, sunsets, beautiful gardens: all these things make the perfect backdrop for a date with the Pisces man.
As the name suggests, Pisces are, on the whole, very fond of seafood. So, a romantic seafood restaurant with candles and a string quartet would be ideal.
Avoid anywhere bright, noisy and chaotic. Go for peaceful and orderly every time.
What to Wear for the Pisces Man
The Pisces man hates to wear restrictive clothing himself. Given his strong (sometimes even overwhelming) empathy, he is likely to feel uncomfortable if you look uncomfortable. So, opt for something light and loose and you’ll put him at his ease.
As for color, try marine shades like light blues and pale greens.
Gifts for the Pisces Man
Anything that will stimulate his imagination is likely to be very well received by the Pisces man. A volume of romantic poetry, a book of Pre-Raphaelite paintings or the biography of a great artist will all make great gifts.
You won’t have to work hard to think of a gift, however, as the Pisces man likes nothing more than to talk about his passions. After speaking to him for just a few minutes you’ll be able to compile a mental list of his inspirations and heroes.
Sex and the Pisces Man
Sex and romance are indivisible so far as the Pisces man is concerned. He won’t be the least interested in a simple roll in the hay. For the Pisces man sex is part of a romantic narrative and he will be in no rush to get to that particular chapter. The setting and circumstances are vital to the Pisces man: candles, music, champagne, rose petals. He would rather wait (much rather wait) than rush into something that lacks the appropriate romantic trappings.
Keeping Your Pisces Man
Sensitivity is the key when it comes to keeping hold of your Pisces man. Hurt his feelings and, although he will instantly forgive you, he will find extremely difficult to recover. In the long term, this may lead to him closing up in order to avoid being hurt again.
Allow him his flights of fantasy. Join in from time to time. However, remember that you’re the one who’s going to have to keep your feet on terra firma. If you can apply your practical skills to help make his dreams become reality, he will be forever in your debt, viewing you as an almost magical figure in his life.
What are You Letting Yourself in For?
Everyone wants a sensitive man. The question is how sensitive? The Pisces man can make the weepiest of your girlfriends seem like the Terminator. You may feel like your permanently walking on eggshells, which can be pretty exhausting.
In extreme cases, his flights of fantasy can take him out of reality entirely, to the point where you may become, to a certain extent, his carer, constantly battling to bring him back down to earth and face his day to day responsibilities.
He may take neediness to new heights. Or should that be new depths? You’ll need to keep this in check, reminding him every now and then that he’s supposed to be your knight in shining armor, not the other way around!
You may find the Pisces Man more difficult if you’re a…
…Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius, and particularly challenging, if you’re a Leo or Libra. But don’t worry: true love conquers all!
The Big Do:
Indulge his flights of fancy.
The Big Don’t:
To quote Elvis: “Don’t be cruel.”
