When it comes to love, Aquarius doesn't like things to be conventional. You're a free spirit who is always looking to the future. This doesn't mean you won't fall in love. You get crushes on people easily, but true love is harder to come by. However, once you do commit to someone, you don't back out easily. It's just that in order for you to commit, you have to do it your own way. If it's too “normal,” you're not content.
You come off as detached and distant to others. You'll always remain so to a degree, no matter how committed you are, because you need to have space or you begin to feel caged in.
You prefer relationships filled with good conversations and intellectual stimulation. You enjoy variety and need to feel that your relationship is going somewhere. Yet even though you love variety, you don't like chaos or game playing. You prefer to have a sense of calmness in your relationships and in life.
