How Do You Know If A Pisces Man Likes You

I thought this was an interesting phrase that some readers used, so I guess I will dive into the topic. So far I have talked a lot about my personality and why I approach things the way I do where it seems like you are going to have to be the one to take initiative first. So what exactly are the signs that people like me give back to show that we are interested in learning more about you? Again, keep in mind that I am writing all of this based on my own experiences.

I remember one example in my life where there was this girl that met me at a place I was working at. My job was to interact and help customers find products that they were looking for while educating them about it. After talking with this girl, she seemed happy and proceeded to head home. Afterwards, she comes back a few seconds later and asks if I used things like an online chat software incase she doesn’t see me again and this way she can ask me questions about new releases and so fourth. I agreed and gave her my contact.

Now here is what was going on in my mind up till that point. Generally speaking, I was working at that job because I was very enthusiastic about the things I get to do and as well it revolved around a hobby I enjoyed. So whenever I talk to people in general it doesn’t feel like work and it’s great to meet other enthusiasts. When this girl came up to me I treated her like any other customer while having fun talking about the products.

When she turned around and came back with a semi stuttering voice asking me for an online contact I immediately knew that she liked me and was interested in getting to know me better. Now here was a big clue that I gave as a way of saying “you seem like a cool person and I would be really interested in learning more about you too”. She asked for an online chat alias and I normally don’t really use those programs. So, while I did give her an alias I gave her an e-mail address as well as I told her I actually check that often. So, she smiled and then left the store.

So what happened? She didn’t send me an e-mail. What happened was that she would come back to the store to chat with me again in a semi nervous type of way. She even started to do the girl stuff such as touching her hair a lot which from my knowledge/observations meant that she is trying to grab my attention (Correct me if I’m wrong ladies).

Again, I knew that she wanted me to say ask her out or something. To give her another hint that I would be open to it, I started to ask her about her personal life such as what school she went to, the type of courses she was taking, etc. If a guy like me asks those questions then that means you can relax as there is something about you that I like. Sure enough though, she seemed to just walk away with that “Nothing is working” mentality and questioning whether or not I had any interest in her.

So here is the ultimate attempt she made in trying to get me to ask her it seems. I guess from visiting the store she generally knew when I worked. For this particular day, I am usually one of the associates that help to close the store down for my department specifically. Sure enough, she arrives about 5 minutes before the store closes saying that she was looking for something for her dad. I mentioned that we didn’t really carry that item here and that the store was closing up. So, she asked if I knew any other places around the area and I mentioned there were many.

What happened was she waited for me to show her and so right after work I walked with her as if we were shopping together I guess you could say. Unfortunately, a lot of the stores were closing too which meant she couldn’t buy the item. As a result, we just started to head our own ways in an effort to get home. However, during this walk in my mind this was partly another attempt in trying to get me to say set a date up with her as I guess that was her definition of a reassurance that I liked her.

As kind of a final hint from myself, as we were walking she started talking about her collection of her video games and I commented in a playful way how I should visit her sometime and we can have a fun match. She responded in a subtle yet enthusiastic response saying I should do that. However, I didn’t specify a date but rather I told her to let me know when she was free one day and I would be open to it. She smiled and all to it. In the end, she never followed through.

My assumption on what happened, most girls often say that when a guy doesn’t directly take initiative in those types of situations that means he has no interest in you. Therefore, in my opinion she was probably just self doubting herself all the time and eventually believing that I just thought she was a disinteresting person.

For my personality type, the ironic thing is while I may be a bit more indirect and mysterious to people when it comes to trying to find out if I like them or not, interestingly enough it is pretty evident if I don’t have any interest at all. Example, like in this scenario I wouldn’t have even asked about her background or education or even offer to give her my contact information. Just the fact that I even continued to communicate with her is a good indication already. If I start to ask you more questions too that is a really good sign to say that I feel comfortable being around you far.

If I don’t like someone too, with my personality you are just gone. No communication, I will ignore your requests and so fourth. In many ways it’s just like becoming friends with people. If you want to be friends then the both of you will be open to each other as opposed to a closed off way. The key thing is communication and whether or not the person is actively asking you questions in an effort to learn more about you. If so, they obviously like you to a certain extent to want to possibly build a relationship of some sort.

    Hi Alan,

    I really like what you write here. In fact, this was kind of what happened to me. Would appreciate if you could email me. I have a question to ask!



  • Nabully August 8, 2009

    Very interesting. I happened to be attracted to Pisceans a lot. The first person whom I approached didn’t work out for me. Total disaster cos’ I can’t read between the lines.

    This second person whom I’m really interested in. I also can’t seem to read his indirect signs very well. Maybe u can help to explain…

    Here’s the scenario: I asked him for his contact no. He gave me. So after a week or so…I try to call him and ask him out. But he didn’t picked up the phone. So I message him instead…setting up a lunch with him alone. But later he message back…saying that he is having lunch with someone else on another day and ask me whether do I want to join them. So is he interested or just want to be friends? I rejected his offer as I have something on on that day itself.

    Before I asked him out, I was messaging him on friendster and he replies my message. But after I asked him out, he stop replying any of my messages. So is it a sign of not interested? He’s my colleague and though we do not see each other often in the work place, we still say “hi and bye” to each other. And I still approach to talk to him.

    So what do you think…friends?

  • Alan August 10, 2009


    Feel free to e-mail with using the contact form. I was hoping to make a “Ask me a question” category too if your question is broad enough where you think it will help others too.


    From reading what you wrote here is my personal interpretation:

    He invited you to have lunch with him along with another person he was having lunch with. This can either mean he is very uncomfortable being around you alone or that he sincerely wanted to hang out with you and didn’t want to blow you off. Unfortunately, I don’t know the whole situation too well to really say which one it is.

    However, you did say that you were messaging him on friendster and getting responses before this incident. Therefore, this leads me to believe that for whatever reason he is giving you the cold shoulder to a certain extent to be just friends. The fact that you pretty much just straight up asked him out too was the right step I’d say. Considering he didn’t follow up and started asking you out afterwards to me shows disinterest. It would be different if you didn’t bluntly ask him out.

    In my opinion, this is going to turn into a “too much convincing” type of scenario and I don’t know if you are willing to do that. It’s his turn to start asking you questions and such if he is interested I’d say.

  • Shea August 12, 2009

    I am going crazy over here, I have been seeing this pisces for at least 3 years, he has been super supportive of anything regarding my life, I recently doubted him on a situation and he found out, the situation was not major, he alienated away from me for two months, I could not take it any longer so I reached out to him, suprisingly he did not reject me. However, after we spoke again he invited me to see him, I oblige and met up with him, everything was cool, so I went on to assume we were back to normal and fine, he started an argument with me a week after I visited him. Then invited me to see him again to discuss what I had done to him. He told me that I hurt him and he was surprised with my actions, I apologized in the sincerest way, he seemed to accept, told me we are fine and he is going to put it behind him because the siutation was not that serious. We laughed, talked and enjoyed each other, the next day he went his way and I went mine. He reached out to me the day after I left him and again a week after our last meeting. Here is the confusing part, we had one more conversation again, everything seemed fine, then, BOOM, out of no where he disappeared again!!! this time its been 2 months and he is ignoring my emails, calls and text. PLEASE GIVE ME ADVICE ON WHAT YOU THINK IS GOING ON IN HIS HEAD. This is a guy who said, I am everything that any man could want, but yet he alienates. sidebar: before, I messed up and snooped behind his back, we would be good for 6 months and then he would alienate without any justifiable cause. Ia m so confused, I love him so much, my heart says wait, my mind says go, there is much more to this situation, good things, but I did not want to bore you with the details. Before anyone says he’s not interested keep in mind he persued me for a year before I accepted to go on a date with him and here we are 3 years or more in and now I love him and he is running why. He has told me that when he feels like he likes a person too much he runs and I think its bull crap. What are your thoughts! please help!!!!! thanks in advance 🙄

  • Alan August 13, 2009


    Here are my two train of thoughts:

    1) The first one is that in the back of his head he strongly believes that your action from before where you snooped behind his back has caused him to really think that you need to do something to reassure him that it was just an isolated incident. Words are not good enough (Regardless if he says it is okay). Therefore, you two have this game going on where he wants it to work but he is keeping his distance to see what you do.

    2) The second thought is that you were a challenge before, so to speak, which was a big thrill of sort for him where people want what they can’t have. Now that you have strong feelings for him that has kind of changed. The reason I say this too is because a person with my personality type/style is not usually that aggressive in asking someone out. The fighting for love usually would come after once all the trust is there.

    Possibly too, maybe you are one of the very few if not only person he has ever pursued and now that he has his doubt about whether this is right for him he wants to really think about his options while at the same time not wanting to let you go. Kind of a selfish thing in many ways.

    You know him way better than me though. Personally, I think that “running away when you get too close” mentality is just a load of garbage. It’s an excuse from having to say what one truly wants to say, in my opinion. Again, if the person was like me it makes absolutely no sense too when you think about it.

    Example, for myself I can be very difficult to open up as my mentality is I don’t want to open up unless I fully trust you. Therefore, it should be the other way around where if I am uncomfortable with you in some way then I want to do more activities/hobbies with you to see what you are really like. It’s only when I am not interested in you anymore where I would be afraid/unwilling to be around you.

    So with the limited info I have, I’m banking on the mindset that his mind is elsewhere and that he is latching on to you just in case. I’m not implying that he is cheating as it could be anything such as a personal problem. The fact that you keep trying to contact him too is reassurance that you are still there and that he can get you back whenever he wants (figuratively speaking). Time to make him go to you to find out if he truly cares I’d say.

  • Shea August 13, 2009

    WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOUR RESPONSE WAS SCARY, ALMOST LIKE YOU ARE SPEAKING FROM HIS MOUTH! I totally agree with everything you say 1000% and I am a Taurus, so you know we think we are always right, in this case you hit the nail on the head, I wish I could delve deeper into the situation. But, I cannot publicly, for various reasons. But wooooooooooooooooooowwwwww! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have one more question for you, but I want to be sure its okay to ask you before I post, its pertaining to the same person and two contradictory statements he made, that has me confused. I feel sometimes when you search for answers from pisces, you leave more confused than when you first asked the question!!! I can not thank you enough! you are a GOD SEND! 😆

  • Alan August 13, 2009

    Sure, feel free to ask. 😀

  • Nabully August 14, 2009

    Haha, Shea, I’m also a Taurus.

    “In my opinion, this is going to turn into a “too much convincing” type of scenario and I don’t know if you are willing to do that. It’s his turn to start asking you questions and such if he is interested I’d say.”

    Hi Alan, what does “too much convincing” type of scenario means?

    I must say I don’t really know him to well either cos’ we haven’t had the opportunity to talk much. But whenever, I find the oppurtunities to get alone with him…I try to take the initiative to talk to him. And I’ve been trying to go to more group activities with him inside the group too…today, we had lunch together with some other colleagues and he asked me how was I. Good sign? hee…

    No pressures…we can start being friends first. But he’s leaving his job soon…so I don’t know when I’ll see him again. 🙁

  • Shea August 14, 2009

    😀 Alan! well you know if you are a taurus we NEVER give up! we fight till the bitter end, that is the hard part, I hope that if I just fall back, he will come around. Man, I really screwed up 😥 would you give up, if you heard the rest of my story as a taurus I KNOW you would say don’t give up!!! lol Taurus’ love hard 😐

  • Shea August 14, 2009

    OOPs! meant to tell Nabully I am a taurus!

    To you Alan, question:
    He said “you are everything a man could hope for, when you come around you are a breath of fresh air, you make me so happy when you are around, when you leave its back to the bs” He said I care for you alot and I am not ever going anywhere I am right here”

    The he said “I am not in love with you though, ouch!!!” what warranted that? he said that before he found out I snooped, (actually, I retract that, I think he knew I had snooped already when he said he was not in love with me) I say that because the very next day is when he put me on blast for snooping!!! go figure.

    Second question: Before I snooped, why do you suspect he would alienate for months! then come back acting head over hills in love with me? When he would alienate in the past I would pay it no mind being the taurus I am I figured, “I would use reverse psychology”!! and of course he would resurface. We did everything as a couple week sleepovers, weekends, sleeping in, dinner dates alone and with friends, partied together, invited around family the whole nine yards, but yet in the mist of it all he says……..”I hope you don’t think you are my girl” ouch!!! again!!! WTH??? this man has me so confused and I have never been so attracted to anyone as I am to him! helllllllllp! I am taking your advice and falling back hoping he contacts me, but other than that I am dying!!! (not literally) but emotionally! lol! Thanks again!!!! 😆 this story gets better….trust me… 😉 😉

  • Alan August 14, 2009


    Too much convincing is like say me finding this girl super attractive and to impress her and to try and get her to talk to me I start doing the activities that she does. Likewise, it could be she always goes for these certain type of guys and then you see me trying to continually dress and act in a way simply to grab her attention in a positive way.

    So I would basically be trying way too hard to convince her to be or talk with me when really it should be the efforts of both people I’d say. With my personality type it should always be if you give a little then I will give a little back to show the interest level and not just you doing all the work.

    Like with that I’m sure if you persist long enough and find the right buttons to push then you can catch anyone’s heart/attention. But how long will that last too is what I would think about. If you do want to keep trying though, with my way of thinking/personality I think the way to see if he is truly interested in you in anyway in “that way” is to setup a small activity of some sort and invite him or just make sure that he knows about it indirectly.

    Small event could be that you both love to watch comedy movies or say you both like to play a certain sport. Then, set something up with your existing friends that you are going to do together anyways and make sure that he knows that he is invited him to come along. If he rejects the offer like three times flat out with a lame excuse then that is a good sign to move on I’d say. People that do like you to a certain extent will make an effort to show up. Even better in this example would be he will tell you a specific day when he is available and if you could set up the activity on that that particular day.

  • Alan August 14, 2009


    I must say, that sounds very cruel. Did he literally say all that sappy romantic stuff and then follow it up with a “I don’t love you” type of phrase? Maybe I am just interpreting this all wrong. Although, my personal translation of that circumstance is “You are great. When I need someone to talk to you are there. When I need someone to hug you are there. I’m so glad that we can be this close as I need someone like you to not feel empty inside. However, I wonder if there is something more out there as you’re not perfect and I don’t want to commit myself to you. I just don’t want to be alone as I have emotional needs.” Sorry, but I am gonna go back to the point where I think this is a selfish thing that he is doing.

    As to my theory why he would alienate you for months, the whole exploring his options and using you as the security blanket, so to speak, is my bet at this point with what I know. It’s almost like a battery charger emotionally. Basically, he gets what he wants emotionally from you, leaves….and then when he is drained and needs more you are there in open arms for him. I don’t doubt for one second where if you ignored him he would come flying back. In many ways you can say he is taking a lot from you and not wanting to give back unless he knows that he will lose you for sure.

  • Shea August 15, 2009

    Thanks Alan! but last question! what should I dooooooo! I am only asking because if you knew the hold story you would understand why I am holding on, i would normally walk away by now, my mind says run! my heart says have patience, I have a correction I said he disapears for 6 months, I meant to say more like a month and a half max, he sticks around for at least 6 months at a time. This is the longest time he has not talked to me, last I spoke to him was in
    June. I miss him so much. Do you have any tips or advice on winning him back, from a pisces point of view? clearly me apologizing is not working. It has been said anything worth having is worth fighting for and he is worth it. If he was not I would have given up a long time ago. I am just so hurt, you know, I think its the taurus curse of always wanting closure on things. I mean if its over do you think he will ever tell me or will he just leave me to guess??? I mean like what the hell!!!!! enough already!! I hope this is my last question!!!!! thank you sooooo much 😆

  • Alan August 16, 2009

    Well, it’s kind of hard to say how you can win back someone as I don’t know to what extent we are talking about here in terms of who wronged who and to what level specifically.

    As mentioned before, I’m pretty sure if you try hard enough at anything you can get it. But will it necessarily mean it will last for the long term while being what you truly want? As a semi joke, it’s like saying I can try my darnest with this car that looks so fantastic and has all of the bells and whistles. Drawback? It can only drive one block on a full tank of gas that I give it. Is it really worth all that effort for me to try and own this car and to make it work in a way that a car should? Is this car truly for me then?

    Of course, this is all a personal choice in life, but I just hope I am giving you the logical way of thinking in all of this too to really think about what you really want and your direction from here on.

    For me, my answer would be to enjoy life. Cause in some ways it sounds like he has you in his grasp emotionally. It is that same thrill mentality I was talking about before where when he approached you initially it was a challenge. If my theory is right, then a person like this that sees you enjoying life without him and all that will drive him nuts to want to get your exclusive attention again.

    If that scenario is true too, then the only way he will tell you straight up that it is over is if for whatever reason publicly being with you can somehow affect the image that he has created of himself to others or if you hurt him bad. I’m trying to think of it from his perspective too where why would he need to change anything? It sounds like he is getting everything he wants and when he wants.

    It’s easier than you think I’d say to get the answer out. If he thinks he is losing you permanently either in terms of his options to be with you or having your trust that will reveal everything.

    A crazy example is that if you all of a sudden became the talk of the town I’m sure he will want to talk to you everyday for the fear of losing you if he doesn’t do anything. Another off the wall example, I’m sure if you were able to catapult his professional life where he stands to gain a lot from it that you would win him back in an instant. But is that what a relationship is about?

    It’s kind of interesting about the closure thing though as from reading your comments you told me that he pretty much flat out told you that you weren’t his girl. So with the contradictory thing if that is the closure you are looking for, my way of thinking based on all I know here is that it is like how a person says that they love to hang around this millionaire (Let’s say that’s you) yet they tell you that they don’t love you. So as the outside person why do you think he/she continues to hang around?

    That’s what I would really think about in your situation. While it is probably not materialistic like that example, really think about what he is getting from you. Cut off that source and then see what happens I’d say as it should work on its own.

  • Shea August 17, 2009

    Wow, thanks for taking so much time,that was a lot to digest, but well spoken and much appreciated. Man, they say pisces are “psychic” maybe you should look in to that to see if you are lol! because you pretty much hit the nail on the head from every angle…scary. You are the best, friend, in my head 😆 . To be continued, I will keep you posted on any future, exciting updates on whether, I walked or not…that car scenario was funny, haha. Man you are good….talk to you soon 😀

  • Sarah September 2, 2009

    Hey Allen…thank u so much for your guidements.. 🙂
    so you’re saying that it’s impossible to read a pisces man…
    i love the mysterious way they are…but sometimes it really hurts me
    there’s a guy who i like so much…i met him in a group of friends..sometimes we hang out with that group..and i receive some of his signals that he’s into me..
    i’m so playfull around…so barely i don’t signal him back 😀 😀
    in chats and Ims he seems not that interested in me…he never leaves me a message…
    i’m so confused… i cant guess his feelings about me…
    what do you think?! give me some advice plz…i’m so into him…

  • Moonchild September 4, 2009

    You seem to give such excellent advice, I hope you can help me…

    My Pisces boyfriend broke up with me a few days ago, every day up until then he seemed so in love with me. The day after we split he called me repeatedly and begged me to see him because he couldn’t be without me, I was very apprehensive but said I was willing to see if we could make it work, the next day he seemed very upbeat but as the day progressed he finally said he couldnt do it and we broke up again.

    He still calls me everyday sometimes in tears, saying he misses me and hates this, but if I give even a hint of wanting to work things out he distances again saying he doesn’t think it can work.

    It all started after a couple of arguments (nothing major) I then told him I was having doubts about us (they didn’t last) he begged me not to leave him. Over the next week he distanced a lot then ended it.

    Please help me, I miss him so much its killing me!! 😥

  • Alan September 9, 2009


    Your situation seems a little too vague for me to really interpret anything. But if you are talking about chats and online messages, I think the time or quality of response is more revealing than whether or not the person actually initiates contact to show interest. Example, if you sent him a message and he replies within a day that actually shows a lot for a person with a quiet personality. Odds are he is too scared of being rejected to send you the first message. This kind goes to the point where many times you need to take initiative.


    While I am unsure about the extent of the argument and who decided to break up first, to me this sounds like a scenario of a “I want to mold you into my view of the perfect person and don’t want to throw away what I have made so far”. Almost reminds me of someone playing one of those online games where they spent all this time building up a character with all these collectable items but at the same time they just can’t stand the monthly fee. So, they don’t want to throw away what they built. Hence, they close the account knowing that they have 30 days to redeem it…so they jump back saying they don’t want to lose it now. When they get it back, again they think “I can’t stand these fees” and so they quit again. It goes on and on.

    I guess my question for you is would this scenario be kind of similar for you too? Everyone has to dig deep I’d say on why they are latching on to something as that will provide you with all of the answers on how to proceed with something and if it makes logical sense to do so.

  • Moonchild September 11, 2009

    Alan, thank you for replying…My Pisces returned on Tuesday night begging for another chance, but your thoughts have scared me a little…he said he tried to walk away because he became so engrossed in me that the rest of his life began to fall apart, that he put me before everything, even his daughter. I told him I never asked him to do that and he said that none of it had been my fault.
    He told me he tried to walk away but his heart wouldn’t let him…that I was in his head, his heart, and well everywhere! HOWEVER he did speak of one or two things he wanted to change…firstly my sleep routine (I am a total insomniac) he said he wanted me to sleep at midnight when he stays…and perhaps he could give me a little more space (something I was hinting at before the break up) he also wanted to keep argument at a minimum, but now I am worried I am just some project, he said his feelings for me scared him because he couldn’t walk away even when he tried, now he seems afraid I will leave HIM…because I had tried to get it in my head we were over…and I can’t just be right back there over night. Oh I don’t know what to think now.

  • CJ September 27, 2009

    Hey! What’s going on with Shea and Moonchild? I’ve gotten interested in their stories but now they haven’t posted in weeks!

    You guys must come back and update us! I sure hope this is a good sign that you’ve both been able to work things out and you’re too busy with your loves to post!

    Best Wishes to you both!

  • w1nd November 2, 2009

    Hi I like ur post, very interesting altough a bit late for me to read it. well I’m a scorpio woman who also end up fall in love with a pisces man. being with him feels so amazing as he always manage bring smile and laughter in me with all his funny act and we surely have a lot of fun together but then again, the relationship between us is a bit impossible as we have 10 years gap and I don’t think he see me more than a little sister.
    in the end it turn out I’m correct when he introduce me to the girl he likes and to make it worse she is also a scorpio and I know they loves each other, only matter of time before their relationship become official.
    well I know very clearly that I must give up on him as the girl is better version of the scorpio woman than me so now I help him to chase her cause I want to see him happy. hopefully I make the correct decision.

    So ive read this page at least 3 times…trying to figure out my pisces guy…and I thought that u actually could help me…
    theres this pisces guy at work and we became really close friends…and we hang out at least 4-5 nights a week..is a groups of friends usually 4 of us..lately we have hang out day time too just the two of us….he sends me all the signals that he likes me…he know i like him….we have this weird thing between us..kinda like we talk wout even talking w some subliminal messages in the air..by music fb status stuff like that..and i asked him if it was just me and he said he felt that too…anyways…theres this new girl at work..and he knows that i dont like her bc shes always all over him..well the other night we were at his house just chilling w some friends and this girls showed up…he knew that i was upset bc i left the house to go to the gas station…i just needed some air…and i said i was gonna be back but didnt say where i was going…he texted me instantly as i left asking me if everything was ok…finally he got the message that it was bc the girl was there…i got back and he avoided the girl the whole night totally ignored her…and he came to me later that night and asked me y i was mad..if it was bc of the girl..and i didnt say anything and he said he knew it was he could read me…anyways i thought he liked me bc he was all worried about me…next day i was hangin out w the same group of people and he wasnt there we tried to call him and he never answered…next day i go to work and i found out that he went on a kinda of double date with that girl that i didnt like…..and i got really confuse…he told his roomattes to not tell me where he was..but Imean we dont have anything and nothing is stated…so he could definitely tell me wout a problem if he didnt really care for me…but he tried to hide it from me thinking that i would never find out..since than he has asked me whats wrong ..many times…and ask why i dont wanna talk to him or if im having a bad day..but the thing is that he really hurt me w this whole situation and im actually loosing all the interest forhim…but i never knew if he really cared for me..or only liked the attention that i gave him…he did somethings that seemed like he really liked me…but i dunno anymore…do u think he ever liked me…or it wass just a friend thing?

    My personal thought on this situation is that the guy actually likes your company a lot and that you are the most openly available person to him many times. I would personally only say he liked you in a serious relationship kind of way in this scenario if he ended up doing more of the activity/hangout initiations during non conventional days while specifically wanting to be with you.

    Example, both of you working one day and then hanging out at lunch time together doesn’t mean “I love you” or anything. However, if consistently during non working days it looks like he could be hanging out with say the “group” of friends and instead he asks you to hang out with him doing something else that is more of a sign of a person liking you. Basically, he is taking the initiative in wanting to be with you in a different fashion as he wants to learn more about you in a relationship way.

    That kind of fits in with the scenario you gave where when he saw that you were mad about the other girl he simply ignored her in-front of you as he still wanted to keep your company/friendship and how he tried to keep it a secret from you when he did meet up with her again. With that in mind too, I’m not surprised that when you guys as the “group” tried to call him he was unavailable. Hence, kind of like what I just said above where the guy took initiative to be with the girl which is outside the realm of his regular activities/routine.

    Here’s the thing though too which I‘ll thrown in as a food for thought item. Obviously, you two connect in many ways to want to hang around each other. To me, it’s just that the guy has this particular thing about women that gets him in that “Woo” mode. I don’t know the guy personally and so that can literally be anything. So the thing is, if you found out what that is then you can easily get him to become closer to you in a more serious way. But would you want to? That is up to you.

    As a personal note, I think for sanity sake you should really think about the reasons you hate that other girl. Just based on what I read you told me that the main reason that you hate her is because she is always all over the guy. Remember, it takes two to tangle. If she is all over him and he allows it then in my opinion you should be more angry at him if anything. I have no doubt that he could just shut her down cold turkey to the point where she won’t even try anymore. But it’s obvious he doesn’t want that. Something to think about.

    Hi AlaN, very interesting posts!
    Please, can you help me too?
    I’m 23 and I met this guy at school. He’s 23 too. We had the opportunity to make a school project together (with other mates). The project went on for a week or 2 and during that time he texted me often about our work, honestly, nothing really important… When the project was almost done, our group had a meeting with our tutor and in that occasion he made eye contact with me and smiled. I didn’t answer his smile because I wasn’t sure if he was smiling at me or not, since I had one friend of him right behind me… He became cold immediately witn me (I could feel it!) and I came home feeling like the one who killed his puppy! A few hours later I texted him somenthing about our project, just to “feel his mood” but he never answered it! The day of our project released he told me that he was trying to arrange a dinner for our group and I told him to let me know when and where. A few days later he texted me about the dinner, complainig that it was to hard to find the right day, according to 20 people’s schedule. The night of the dinner I went to the restorant to find nobody and I called him to discover what happend. He told me that the dinner was in another restorant, very far from where I was. Rationally I thought that he forgot to let me know about the new solution, but I was too angry to go there and I came back home. He tried to call me a couple of times but I turned off my phone. The morning after, I was much more calmer and I texted him to explain my bahaviour, but he gave me the silent treatment again. A few days later he sent me a mail about a new dinner, complete with the missing people at the first one. I told him I was in, but that dinner never took place. During the summer I tried to text him a few times but he never answered my messages.
    Do you think he was interested or he’s just a weird person and I’m loosing my time thinking of him?

  • WhouFeelin November 16, 2009

    🙄 Goodness Grief, this is way too much stalking, if a guy is mutally interested he will also go out of his way, why is the woman pursuing the man and reversing the role, men were engineered to hunt and us ladies to be on the prowl:) Have fun and dont try so hard to get them to like you, either they do or dont.

  • Alan November 21, 2009


    I thought his was kind of coincidental as I just posted up a reader question about eye contact which you can read for reference at https://piscesview.com/2009/11/21/pisces-eye-contact-and-showing-interest/

    To answer your specific question I am going to have to make a lot of assumptions here to try and fill in pieces of the story such as your specific reaction to his smile. I know you mentioned that you didn’t answer it back, but that could mean anything where a person could interpret it differently such as you looking at him and then looking away abruptly, lowering/raising your eyebrow, etc.

    For someone like myself to generate that kind of hostility in this type of scenario I would say that for some reason you came across as a self absorbed diva to him now, so to speak. I’m over exaggerating here, but imagine me asking for your autograph at a convention where I am a big fan of your work. However, you think I am just a waste of your time to even acknowledge and so you sway me off.

    With that in mind, assuming that scenario is accurate then I would say everything like with the dinner plan arrangements were semi intentional. That’s not saying that he purposely misled you into going to the wrong place, but rather he didn’t care if you were there or not. Basically, if you phoned him ahead of time before leaving just to make sure he would have told you without a problem. He’d be doing it more as a way to mold his personal image as being nice/courteous to others so that you can’t bad mouth him. But if he can he will ignore you out of spite.

    Hence, this is like a retaliation game where you ignored him in a way he took very personally and so there is a big part in him that wants to do the same to you. It is a very childish mentality in many ways I guess you can say. Again, this is assuming my assumptions are correct, but that was my immediate thoughts on how something like this can occur.

    Did he like you before? I would say yes. Are you losing your time thinking of him? That’s a personal choice. My best piece of advice here is that if you are continually texting him and all because you do want to start a relationship with him, think about the personality here. I have learned in life personally that you don’t really know the person until you see how they act when they are at their worst.

    Assuming what I wrote above is correct where it’s like you knocked him down pretty bad and he is retaliating, you are seeing his real personality and how he treats and deals with people. That is up to you if you want to stick at it and learn more.

    Hi Alan,

    I liked your discussions on pisces guys and I would appreciate if you could also help me out a bit.

    P.S. its going to be a lil longer read than the previous posts but I hope it makes for an interesting one 🙂

    I have known this pisces guy since 2nd year of my university when he was in his 4th year. Initially we didn’t know each other even though we had a mutual friend but I used to notice that he was always around in the same area I used to be hanging out and kinda staring my way and all. So i decided to add him on facebook. He added me but didn’t say anything as I wished that he would take the 2nd step. So after waiting like 2 days I decided to send a short message across just saying Hi and all and if he knew who I was and he replied back after like 3 days saying that yeah he knew who I was and had seen me around and stuff. I don’t remember much about our messages coz this was like 2 years ago…but I remember we did exchange a few messages on facebook and then I was like we don’t live in different parts of the world so why not just talk on Msn..and left my address there…He added me on msn promptly and we used to have good conversations on msn….He used to ask me alot of questions and such…and like always make these group events on facebook and invite me those but I never went to any….I was a little shy at that point in my life although I did initiate the contact with him….and I thought he was sort of a shy guy as well but I came to know that he used to go clubbing alot, attend parties frequently, get drunk and all….So like during one of the semesters, there was an inter university dance competition happening…he was participating in it and asked me to try out for it but being shy and all I didn’t although he did persuade a bit. Anyways so he used to have alot of dance practices and such and there he met another girl whom he started liking and at that same time I noticed he started ignoring me alot. I got the hint and stepped out although I heard that the girl already had a boyfriend and was just playing him and that he was very heartbroken after that….but he had already graduated by then and I never msged or saw him until like last year.

    Last year around this time, I came on MSN around 3 am and he was on and he goes..look whose online. We started talking and we were on the relationship topic and I was like so did u find a girl and all? He said no I didn’t..help me find one. Then goes like I am sure you have some hot friends, cousins, family friends?? I don’t know but he seemed like he was too desperate to just get a girl….So I just subtly said to him that too bad you cut me off your list…and he was like…maybe you cut me off your list…and we were just quiet for a moment there….coz I wasn’t sure if he was still into me or not…and also I didn’t know if I wanted to again develop feelings for him coz I didn’t like how he ignored me in uni once he found the other girl who ultimately ditched him anyways….so we chatted for a little bit on just general stuff and then we didnt touch base until like April of this year…

    It was my final year and we again started talking on msn….mainly it was me messaging and all….He likes playing the lotto every week and so do I from time to time whenever I remember to….so he proposed that we play together and I was like we need to meet in order to do that…So he said then we should and asked me when I was free and such. So I told him that my final exams were on and after that I am good to meet…During my exams, he did message me to ask how my exams were going and all. So after my exams ended, I touched base with him and let him know I was free….and then he goes I will confirm with you but he didn’t….then again we set another day…and I gave him my cell and asked him to text me to confirm….he did text me the same day we were to meet but around 11:30ish at night saying that he knew he was to meet up today but he just left a friend’s house…..I didn’t know whether he was apologizing or what….so I didn’t reply to him until like the afternoon of next day saying its ok….anyways we never met up during the summer….He always proposed to meet up but the meeting never happened….I got fed up of it and took another break…then i started full time work this sept so I got pretty caught up in my busy life…

    Then in November…while at work on a friday I just texted him saying…Hey, how is it going? He didnt reply until like sat afternoon…apologizing for the delayed response and asked me how i was doing and stuff? Then over the weekend I was attending a session in Toronto for the as well as the monday of it….and I remembered he had mentioned that he worked in Toronto…So I just texted him telling him that I was in Toronto and that if I remember correctly he was working here too and asked the whereabouts of his work….So it turned out that we were actually pretty close to each otehr….and I suggested meeting up for lunch…to that he said yes we shd meet up….but said like…maybe after work coz he found that lunch time is not enough time…so I suggested Monday…and he said what about another day…and I wasn’t tehre any other day of the week….He again wouldn’t agree really…but he hadn’t said no either…So Monday came along, I don’t hear anything from him..and around late afternoon I asked him if the plans were still on and to my surprise he said yes, we will meet up and that he looked up on the map where I was located and we were pretty close…

    So we met up finally after 2 years! I wasn’t nervous at all coz in my mind I was just meeting another friend but then when I saw him coming my way I was like…shit! what are we going to talk about? Coz we hardly had any face to face conversations in university as it was his last semester. We didn’t hug or anything…jsut exchanged our hellos and went to the nearest coffee place…This was at 5:30p.m. To my surprise we never had a quiet or awkward moment of silence….our conversations went smooth, talking about alot of general things….from our families to our work and all….Never really touched on the relationship topic…But he seemed more mature, he said he didn’t attend too many parties now, life after uni was a little boring, he didnt have much of a social life, etc etc…doesn’t get drunk now and all…asked me alot of questions about my work and stuff….then it was like 9 and he suggested we head out…He dropped me off to the subway station parking lot as my car was parked there….I usually wear a ring that my grandpa gave me on my ring finger so when I sat in his car…he noticed my hand and he asked me what’s up with that ring? To that I jokingly said that I was engaged and all…but he knew I was lieing…When I was leaving I thanked him for the ride and said that it was nice meeting and all…he said the same…and said we will keep in touch!

    So then the next day, I couldn’t resist but text him while we were at work….he texted me back right away…and we exchanged a few texts…after like 2 days…we were on msn chatting…I msged him again…and I had a funny story to tell.about what happened at work…which he actually found pretty funny and couldn’t stop laughing and called me funny and all…then i said my bye and left…

    So then Monday comes along…and I happened to be in Toronto again and it was my last day…so I texted him asking if he wanted to a grab a coffee…to which he never replied….

    3 weeks pass by and just last Monday I get a text at work in the afternoon from him…saying Hey, How is it going? I was like what the hell…I replied saying that everything was good and how were things at his end….he said things r good…nothings new….so you have any plans for xmas holidays? To which I replied no not really…I have an exam to write so guess I would be studying and asked him about his plans knowing that he is a party animal…To which he goes…no no..lol not at all..no plans at all…its going to be a quiet xmas this year…so I replied saying…well that makes 2 of us…P.S. I am a little mad at u….So he was like…omgggg…why are you mad?? I told him that he didnt acknowledge my text that I sent like 2-3 weeks ago…He never replied to that….then at night..I was like see no comments on what i said..ur mean!!…He never replied still…..Then the next day at work…around lunch time I msged and asked him what he had for lunch..and to that he replied right away and we again exchanged a few texts…

    Now I don’t know what’s the deal with this pisces guy…He seems like a recurring theme in my life…and nothing really comes out of it…I don’t if he likes me or not…He was very sweet when we met up…That was like one of our first real conversations and went pretty well….But I don’t know how to deal with this situation? I would like to give us a try but he sends mixed signals..I don’t know if he wants me to take the lead since he has been heartbroken in the past or he just considers me a friend.. I would appreciate if you could please provide your thoughts on it. Sorry for the long read!!!

    That looked like it took a lot of work to write. I’m going to feel bad if I don’t write a response that is equally as large. lol. 😀 I did read everything and here are my genuine thoughts:

    To me it appears that the guy is using you as his “escape” in life right now. What do I mean by “escape”? Example, what do some people do when they are stressed? They suddenly enroll into like a gym to work off the stress. What do some people do when they are mad? They go to like a park to try to walk it off or say a distant vacation. Or, if you want the more stereotypical example some guys drink a lot of beer as their “escape”.

    People like that usually have issues in their closet, for a lack of a better word, and so when in need they always go to people who would appear to support them at that moment. That kind of fits in with everything that you wrote in terms of the behavior pattern in my personal view.

    I guess this is entirely open to interpretation too, but a guy asking a girl to “help me find one” and then follow that up with “maybe you cut me off your list” in context of the conversation you had with him shows me that he intentionally planted seeds in you where the hope is whenever he feels like he wants you for whatever reason he can just water you a bit where a flower will grow. Then, the hope is he can pluck it whenever he wants/needs it.

    So if you are like a rose right now, basically he comes by and smells it whenever he is down to give him a boost. Does that mean he likes it? Well, yeah of course if he keeps coming back. Does that mean he loves it where he goes out of his way to nurture it while wanting to have it around him at all times? Doesn’t seem like it.

    Speaking for myself too, I have a more quiet personality and can’t imagine saying something like ““maybe you cut me off your list” if I was interested in pursuing a serious relation with a women or had those kinds of feelings for her. My reaction would probably be something like “What made you think that?” Basically, more of a genuine shock rather than a calculated chess match of sort.

    Because if shyness was the reason for being afraid to take initiative in pursuing a relationship with you before then hearing you say something like “too bad you cut me off” would immediately make me think “Holy cow……say what? When? You mean you actually liked me too? This is so cool”. Hence, that would be followed up with probably an apology on whatever thing I did that made you feel that way.

    So, my view is he is looking for a boost in life where being around like a girl is just the means to getting it at the moment I’d say. I do find it interesting that you keep bumping into him in life. It’s almost like that thought how everyone you meet in life is for a purpose.

    I’m a scorpio woman and i met a pisces. He appeared to be interested in me however he stopped calling one day. I met him we spoke the entire night and into the next morning face to face. We were even in a club/bar and it was if noone was there but us. We ended up at my home. We didnt go inside. There were no sexual advances just deep conversation. He said all the right things and I really thought it was too good to be true. After leaving to get some sleep. He called five minutes later and came right back for a kiss. It was magical. I had butterflies and its never happened to me before. We spoke later that day and then I went to visit him. We talked more he inquired a lot about me as did I about him. We kissed more and I left. I called him on my way home and he was speaking to his daughter. He said he’d call me back. He never did.
    He text me the next day “smile”. I text him back that I did in that very moment that he text me. He would “poke” me on facebook and comment he likes my status, but no other communication.I called him later that afternoon, no answer. I called later that evening and left a message, no response. I called that following day and no answer. Maybe I reacted to drastcally, but I dont like rejection. I felt stupid and confused because I fell so hard in only one night. I erased his phone number so I wouldnt be compelled to call him and I deleted him as a friend on facebook. He hasnt made any attempt to contact me. My phone is now disconnected which Im sure he didnt call anyway but I’ll never know. What did I do? What should I do?

  • Birdy February 5, 2010

    Okay…So I was talking to this picses man…and I unfortunately…met him through my EX…Not the greatest of situations…But the ex and he didn’t really share time together…or even like each other that well. When we first began talking…it was really strange…because he was kind of internet abusing me…I didn’t understand why…But every time I he saw me on anyones social networking sight…he’d hone in on me like he had radar! And attack me! Say awful things…and I am not one to bite my tongue…so I gave it right back!
    Well that got old…so I decided to ask him what was up…and when I did…he immediately became apologetic and said he should have never said the thing’s he had to me.
    So it was as if it never even happened…which I don’t mind..I may be a pit of a push over…But he was being sooo sweet! I couldn’t stay mad! …We talked…just as friends for a few days…and then it just started taking a turn…and it was so obviously mutual…I told him he should take me out sometime…he said he didn’t know because he had met me through a friend…my ex…yeah suckage…but anyways…in the same conversation he changes his mind and asks me what I am doing the next night
    I tell him I’m free…we then go to a movie together….Doesn’t seem like the best “first meeting” as he called it…He refused to cal it a date…which is cool and all..but it was a date…if it walks talks and acts like a date…its a date.
    But like I said I am pretty easy going…didn’t bother me what he called…especially since I had a blast…just sitting next to this guy was like….I can’t even explain..
    So he says we need to go out again when he drops me home…we continue talking…he never asks…he tells me hes conflicted…says “when I was with you…I felt amazing!”…but never tries to continue seeing me….Then begins to tell me about another girl he is seeing…
    Which in normal circumstances would have really ticked me off…but he’s just such a cool dude…I wouldn’t care if I was in the friends spot…I just like being in his presence…
    So then he decides to keep talking to me as a friend…and then tells me it’s not gonna work with this girl…I tell him the truth…that I’m sorry he feels hes wasted his time and what not…I genuinely like him as a person..So even though I was jealous…I wanted him to be happy
    Well then we continue talking…and about twice a week his “internal” conflict becomes public…I am the public…and he is expressing it to me about me…makes me not very comfortable…but I deal…and tell him my view…That there is nothing to lose in my opinion…I can earn a great friend…or possibly more…and either way I am happy
    He never makes a decision….Eventually I became fed up with the back and forth…because after he would go on about how much he was feeling…and How he has this HUGE thing for me…He would then avoid me for days on end…And when he popped back up…pretend it was never said
    I told him I couldn’t be pushed back and forth in that way…and that I thought it best that we go our separate ways…It had begun to hurt me a little…And I just am not dealing with that…So as of about a week ago…He and I no longer talk at all…I miss him..But not enough to go through his emotional musical chairs…I would really just like to know what happened? Possibly, what was going through his mind in this? I took the closure I needed…But I still want to know if you have any insight…Thank you for your time!! 😀

  • Birdy February 5, 2010

    Sorry I forgot to add a timeline for this…It was almost 3 months…From the time we actually became friends…maybe 4 from the start of the online abuse lol…And I am a Capricorn…thank you!! <3

  • Alan March 10, 2010

    Sorry for the delay in responses all.


    I noticed you sent me a message and I gave you a response already I believe. 🙂


    Was this seriously a relationship? This sounds more like a social club where the guy was purely using you in a way to say
    “Look, I can get girls! I’m cool!” Hence, it was more for his image. Reminds me of like a person that looks so buffed up and all for image sake where in reality a simple rat would scare him.

    To me that explains him attacking you behind the computer and such too as many people feel that behind the screen they can do anything. Very insecure in a high schoolish type of way I think personally. Could be he has a lot of personal problems you are unaware of too and hence he is using you as a way to lash out since it sounds like you were allowing him to before.

    Can’t really say much other than it sounds like he just has some growing up to do to gain life experience while discovering what he really wants to do in life and all.

  • Dee March 15, 2010

    Hi Alan !!
    I really like this Piscean Guy…Been friends with him for over a year..He knew I liked him sorts thats because he asked me if I did and I foolishly said a yes…He said he like me too but said he couldn’t carry on with me because he feels I’m a good girl and he’d hurt me later and lose the friend he has in me…we were still friends..but all of a sudden he started maintaining a distance from me…hardly spoke..made faces everytime…it hurt me real bad..I would cry every night just pondering over the same..thinking what bad I did to make him behave all weird…he became close to my friend…i know he considers her only a friend…he doesn’t like her much because he calls and talks a lot of bullshit…I am kind of shy..and I can judge his behaviour too…he knows that too..we never spoke for like months..we were still friends though..maybe he didn’t like the fact that I had started going out too much..partying sorts with friends…and what made me feel worse was when he actually confessed that he dislikes me..Earlier he thought of me as a decent chick but now he has hardly any respect left..he said he never thinks about me..but if he does..its always in a bad way..maybe he feels disgusted sorts…But we recently went for a trip…and he was like the sweetest to me..i am having doubts he started liking me again…he glances at me..looks at me from his corner eyes..gives me a deep sweet look…smiles..stays close…stays quiet…intensely looks at me…i look and shy away…we got a little close when he was teaching me to play cards…as in we were looking at the same set of cards….there was like a sort of connection…I don’t know what’s happening…does he like me the way I do…or he is just being a good friend ? I’m really confused..I love him a lot..Its coming close to 2 years now and I can’t get over him…I know him inside out..but just this thing confuses me about him..Please help me…I’m a Taurean girl.

    There was this guy that I met in junior year in college. I really didn’t pay him too much attention to, but he paid me a lot of it. Anyways, he managed to walk with me to my car at night and finally he came out to tell me that I was pretty and asked me if I had a boyfriend. Well at the time I did, but my ex and I were on verge of breaking up. So, I finally got feed up with my ex, and the new guy out the blue asked me if I wanted to hangout, get some coffee. So we did and we also had a great conversation. We exchanged numbers that night and from there began to text and call each other. We finally got really close. So close that he introduced me to his mother, father, and other relatives. We spent a lot of time together, and I mean a lot. I would cook and afterwards we would take naps, we where so ffffaaaatttt…LOLOL. Anyways some things came up with him that I thought were unethical, and some of the stuff we did messed with my spiritual life so I began to get uncomfortable. By me being uncomfortable it made him uncomfortable and in turn caused things to turn sour. I admit, I did not handle everything right, and some things I dealt with in an immature way. So, by us being on bad term, I began to have little conversations with my ex, and my new bf found out and was very upset with me. Anyway, he called it off and said that he didn’t want anything else to do with me. I was so unset with the outcome. I tried to make things work, but he didn’t want to. It hurt so bad to have him push me off like we didn’t have anything. Anyways, time went on and I heard from him four months later and I asked him if he thought we could work things out and he got really ugly. So, I went on with my life, and it wasn’t until a new year came and he contacts me in Feb (10). We talk and text each other, so I thought it was okay to ask him if we could hangout since we hadn’t seen each other in a while. We sit aside two times and he canceled on me both time. However, it was one time out of the blue that he agreed upon seeing me, but we didn’t spend too much of that time together. I wanted to be mad but I couldn’t because I am better than that. So, his b-day is coming up and says let hangout then, and I said okay. I am excited, but I hope he doesn’t cancel on me again. I have been telling that I apologize about how things went, and wish things didn’t turn sour between us because we could have worked things out and he agrees. So now I just hope he does keep his word about the b-day thing, and I hope there is room that we can work it out. What do you think? Sidebar: He did tell me he was talking to someone, but he isn’t now, but now he says he is talking to someone else. So what do you think I should do? Should I hold my breath and push things to work out of should I just treat the outing like so random outing? Basically, should I be looking for more out of this situation?

    Thanks In Advance

    Hi I’m a sagittaurius girl. And I really like this picses guy. Well text sometimes here and there and he even called me one night. It went well although I had to do a lot. of the talking…is that good? And id be quiet on purpose to let him talk first for a change and he kinda got the hint. He said things like your funny and he wants me to cook for him Hahaha, we hungout once like We haven’t hung out like a year ago, so I haven’t seen him. Since but were planning on it soon. Then we won’t talk for a week…why does he do that? Then hell text me again and he cAlled me 3 times last weekend and now he won’t text me for a while again. Do u think he thinks of me or likes me even just a lil bit? I really like him but I’m waiting for him to talk first, should I just wait and do my own thing? Or should I be the first to say something?? Or will he think I’m desperate? We have a lot in common,botoy? If you do know that has to do with anything.

  • SWEETHANG35 May 5, 2010

    This is the first time I’ve seen and read a post like this. You are a blessing to share your deep intuitive thoughts with all of these posts. If you don’t mind here is my story. I met my Pisces guy thru a co-worker on 12-3 10. Pisces guy FR said he was interested in meeting a Samoan woman. Little did I know MP co-worker had been telling FR about me, single good person, Samoan ect.. FR was ready to meet me. I waited and it took me a month to meet him and I tried my best to not say my name cuz I know he would of known right away it was me due to my name being unique. When I finaly told him my name he started smiling saying your the one.. your the one I’ve been waiting for, your my Samoan Queen.. I was tickled that he thought of me and had been waiting and remembered what my co-worker had discribed. I was very hesitant bcuz FR is much younger than me. We exchanged numbers anyway.. a month later he called. Since then we have been talking every since. After 2 weeks of convo We went on a nice romantic date by the water, talked and walked. Simple but very nice. We have gone on several more dates and we talked on a regular basis. He would text me in the morning or in the afternoon saying thinking of you.. He opened up slowly, now he always say’s my name repeatedly, when we talk on the phone or in person.. he say’s my name in a song that he makes up off the top of his head. I asked him, why you always saying my name?? he said I dont know? it’s sounds like a melody.. then he’ll start signing.. so cute;) I questioned myself about he’s true feelings bcuz of the age gap but when I was sick, he came right over and took care of me:) after that night I knew he truly cared. He told me he loved me after 3 months of dating. I was suprised and speechless. It’s been 5 months and we had an issue one time when I said I needed my space, valentines day.. we spent 3 days together and I got a lil overwhelmed.. he was quiet and then admitt he was hurt after not speaking for a week this was in feb, but we talked it over and we both have learned how to approach eachother when we are going tru personal issues or need our space. We both know that we are here for eachother, he gives me time and space when I need it and I respect his time and space for himself. He said he trust me with everything and I’ve notice that he has gotten more protective. Is that a natural sign that he truly cares and loves me? I believe and feel that he does.. I’ve been hurt and abuse before, It has been almost 6 years since my divorce, Now, I have met a man that shows his aprreciation for me it almost feels like a dream. He has cooked for me and my daughter, when we cuddle he loves for me to lay my head right on his chest.. or sometimes we spoon.. when I cry he kisses my tears away. Does this sounds like a Pisces man in love, or just in love with the fantasy of love? Thank you so much. sorry for this long Post. Have a blessed day!! Oh, I’m a gemini woman, but have been told that I’m a Cusp baby
    ( Taurus / Gemini ) so I’ve been told. 5-22 is my b-day he’s b-day is 3-9.

    Thank you again Alan,

    Most grateful..

  • Jennifer May 12, 2010

    This site feels like a godsend. I have been reading all of the posts and it seems like all of them are talking about the guy I am currently dating. My situation starts with us meeting from an online dating websute. I’m a virgo girl, just to start with, which I already know means we are polar opposites, and therefore have a lot of chemistry. We met and started sleeping together after only a couple of dates and Ilve never had that type of chemistry with anyone I have ever dated before. What began to trouble me was that even after almost four months of dating, spending weekends together, meeting friends, and having fun together, I still don’t know if I’m technically ‘his’. It still says he is single on facebook, even though he claims he only goes on once a week or so. He says his friends like me, that he is not seeing anyone else, and that he does things with me and tells me things he says he has never shared with ‘just anyone’. He felt hurt when I asked him about what I was to him, but the next day it was like nothing happened, and he forgave me for questioning. My fear is that I am going to be away for a few months. I’ve promised to write him, and he says it will be tough, but that he’d like for me to write and call, and he says he will be busy with work. From what I have read so far, he must be pretty into me for me to have even gotten this far. He says he wouldn’t contradict me if I introduced him as my boyfriend, but claims I am what I am to him, and that I shouldn’t worry about it. I know they hate worriers, pisceans. Does he want to stay with me, or will he drift away while I’m gone, because he can’t be alone?

  • Alan May 14, 2010

    Hi all,

    Been a busy few weeks for me again. Okay,time to share my thoughts to hopefully help. 🙂


    I had a little trouble trying to understand the exact dynamics of your situation as it sounds like first you were talking about yourself and then another girl as you keep saying “her” all the time which confused me.

    Overall it does sound a little harsh though. For example you mention that he confessed that he dislikes you? That seems pretty blunt if the person has a more timid personality. Just based on what I understand from reading this though it sounds like the main part of you that interests him is the fact that you are different from the regular people he hangs around with which is kind of thrilling to a certain extent.

    Basically, you are like a rollercoaster for him when normally he only goes on ferris wheels. So once in awhile it can be a thrill, but generally for a person that isn’t that much into high adrenaline type of stuff it can be a drainer and something you wouldn’t want to be around all the time.

    That is kind of what it sounds like as you mention you are the one that say goes to parties and stuff more. When you guys are back within his comfort zone area then that is when you will see him open up more which isn’t surprising. To me this also seems like one of those situation where you have to ask yourself do you really want to try and change each other so much to be compatible in more ways than one? Personal choice of course.


    Okay, my response seems very late for you as everything probably happened already. But as it is, I can tell you that I am personally almost the same way when it comes to cutting people off. Basically, if someone does something extremely bad to me I literally treat them like the plague where I want them gone from my life.

    My basic thought is that you can’t change people and if you made a conscious decision to do whatever it is that you did which I found was bad then most likely you will do it again in one form another. So I would rather just not associate with the person anymore. Of course, everyone is different.

    If that is the case too I would say it is time to move on from him as it will always be on the back of his mind regardless of how nice he sounds at the moment. As well, it is now an arsenal of his to use against you and to some certain extent people will use it as an immature reason to get back at you in a mean and spiteful way. Not a very healthy situation I guess you can say.

    This is all just a perspective though as I don’t know the person personally. But I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it turned out that way based from the things I have seen.

    sagittaurius lady,

    I’m one to say if you get along then you get along. Again, I always try to write my thoughts based on experience and personality as opposed this being some kind of rule of law.

    In your scenario it sounds like he likes you but not quite enough to dive into deep waters for some reason. That would kind of explain to me how he calls you but then leaves you hanging for weeks. Basically, he needs to send you messages to tell you he is still interested in being around you in some ways. It’s definitely in the friend zone right now though.

    It all depends how much effort you want to put in. Actually, I remember a situation that was semi similar to this. The girl literally had to take a very aggressive approach in inviting me out to places such as bluntly telling me what her schedules were, how she was going by herself to like the movies, etc.

    Like in that scenario it’s like she made me feel bad for not taking at least some time off to be with her and I would kind of do something similar such as sending her messages to be nice as a friend. With that example, it’s definitely true though where I did not want to pursue that relationship any further than a friend.

    I would definitely say he does like you a little bit. As mentioned, just not enough to go into a relationship mode for whatever reason.


    Wow, my first comment is that you sure have a lot of life experience in trying to analyze the guy immediately. Especially with the comment where you are trying to determine if he is truly in love with you or if it is a fantasy love, so to speak.

    That is interesting as my first thoughts revolved around how you mentioned the guy was looking for a specific type of women and then immediately claiming you are the one. It truly did make me wonder if there was like an ulterior motive or anything.

    I think the key here is to find out what his long-term vision for life in general is. Speaking for myself, with my timid personality and wanting to find “the one” as much as I would like the person to just fall from the sky I would never just immediately jump at the person saying “You are the one” without trying to learn more about you in various passive ways first. Reasons are simple as I don’t want to get hurt and when I pour out all my energy and such I want to be fairly certain that it is with the right person.

    So in that sense it makes me think that this is just a fantasy for the guy. But I still think the key is the long-term thinking for him. This is excluding any love stuff he says to you. Example, what is his goal when he is older? What will he do if he is umemployed all of sudden? How big of a family does he want? If he had a million dollars what would he do with it? I know that these sound like silly personality questions, but this will clearly differentiate if the guy is truly that serious as a serious person would have at least thought about this stuff I’d say. You just need to personalize the questions a bit more with your scenario with his while bringing it up in a clever way.

    If it was like a fantasy for me I would have to second guess my answers for example as oppose to it coming out naturally. It’s semi easy to improvise things on the spot like saying how beautiful someone is, but those types of questions will definitely separate the serious people to the fantasy ones.


    Hmmm, this is unfortunately a polar opposite of me and all the guys I have ever met in life that were like that usually only end up using one girl after another. 🙁 Course, it’s not fair for me to pre-judge the guy too much as again I don’t know him. So take my comments with a grain of salt as you know him better.

    What I immediately thought here was how you two got intimate yet he still listed himself as single on the site. Then, he also gives you the “You are the only person I tell this to” routine to build trust. For my own personality, do you know how proud and happy I would be to confess my love to the women if it went that far? If the person was searching long and hard for the one while wanting to cherish it they would be happy to advertise it I’d say.

    Like the saying goes, it’s not what you say but what you do that counts. To me, it’s like he is setting everything up where he can jump out at anytime if he finds something new to keep him thrilled. I mean, even the part about how he says he won’t contradict you if you tell everyone he was your boyfriend even shows signs of that. So if it didn’t work out he could like tell his friends “Yeah, that girl was all over me but I wasn’t too into her though.” A solid relationship should go both ways I’d say where the two couple are equally excited.

    Why would you be the only one promising to write to him if you are away? Again, it should be equal where the guy wants to write to you too. It is a personal preference too of course. I wouldn’t be worried about the guy drifting away as opposed to trying to make sure you are certain of a person’s true colors in this scenario.

  • SWEETHANG35 May 26, 2010

    Thank you, Alan.. when my Pisces guy said I was ” the one ” it was because he had been waiting a month to meet me. My co- worker discribe me to him and I made him wait. When we did meet I didn’t tell him my name right away so when I finally did that’s when he said ” your the one I’ve waiting to meet.. I asked him why he wanted to date a certian woman of my culture he said because Samoans are very family orientated and that’s very important to him. Other types of woman he had met was all about them selves.. Things seem to have turned for the worse. After the I love you’s… I want to have children with you, I would spend a million dollars in building a shelter for homless children and their parents and helping my family.. create jobs for the youth… build an animal shelter, my Pisces guy has given me the silent treatment.. My b-day was 5-22. On 5-20 he had come over to rest after work and he got a call from a client while we were in bed. He said his feelings were hurt in the convo and said he had just laid down and only been sleep for an hour. Told the client if they wanted thier car detailed to come to the shop in the afternoon and that he would call them later. I assumed it was a woman he said it was a customer, I kinda gave him the cold shoulder bcuz why would a customer need to know personal info like that?? He surely didn’t tell her that he was in the bed with his girlfriend resting… he felt my tention and tried to hold on to my waist, and quickly yet in a soft voice said I love you in my ear.. I got out of bed and started to get dress. He asked if he could come over and give me a body rub and fix me breafast for my b-day sat morning but I said sun morning would be better since I would be getting off work and getting ready for a bar b que. He was a lil jealous a day prior 5-19 because my co-worker that introduced us we have the same exact b-day and asked me if I wanted to do a twin b-day together and I said yes.. I have not spoke to him since 5-20 2 days b4 my b-day. I called on 5-23 couldn’t leave a message for some reason when I got ready to leave a mess the call ended?? so I texted R u ok? haven’t heard from u in afew days I pray all is well. No response.. Now it is 5-26. I was so hurt that on 5-25 I put his belongings in a bag and dropped it off at his job. No one was there. I wrote him a letter in tears saying I hope he was ok and that I don’t know what’s going in his life for him not to return my call, but obviously he doesn’t want to include me in it. Since my divorce 6 years ago he is the only man I’ve told and truly showed love to.. I never mentioned him not coming to my b-day bar b q.. I thanked him for showing me love when he did and that he helped me stop and embrase the good in the world and in people. I told him I wished him the best and we both desrve to be happy. I apologized if I did or said anything to offend him and signed Love always.. I tried to write kind words and not write anything bad. I feel like an a** for not waiting to hear from him, yet I also felt abandon and disreguarded as if he was silently telling me it was over, I got so scared that I gave up on him / us b4 talking to him. I feel there is no clouser since we haven’t spoke since 5-20.. My actions by putting his stuff in a bag and leaving it at his job is saying I’m moving on.. I know this to shall pass. If I have given up for no good reason I hope he forgives me. 🙁

  • SWEETHANG35 May 26, 2010

    Sorry Alan, I forgot to mention.. the last time we were together
    5-20 as he got ready to go I can tell he was dreading going back to work. He held me in his arm and said that I was his safe haven, that he is at peace and can be himself and not worry about the cares of the world and everybody’s problem.. then he said i love you.. How can a man say those things and then not call you for 5 days, miss your b-day not call to even say happy b-day.. I’m so cunfused?????

  • Scorpion girl July 3, 2010

    I met this pisces guy who is my a friend of my friend. We clicked instantly and although he didn’t give me his contact number, he added me on msn. He then invited me to his birthday party. After that we didn’t really contact each other much apart from him thanking me for going to his party and the present. Recently, we met at a party and we talked as if we have known each other for ages. I invited him to dance coz he seemed to fall asleep in the corner. So we danced and he started to tell me how to say i love you in another language. Throughout the rest of the night, we seemed to catch glances of each other and even my friends were pointing that out to me that he was staring at me. After theparty we didn’t talk to each other again, as I expected. But a few days ago I asked him fover the net for help on some work and he offered to meet up if he’s able to find his copy of work and if I want to. The conversation kind of dirfted off that. I’m confused..if he likes me why doesn’t he ever take the initiative to talk to me aside from face to face situations? 😕

  • nearly40 July 23, 2010

    Hi Alan,
    Ihave read the posts above and found them quite interesting.
    I have a question and wanted your perspective.

    I have been talking to a Piscean for just about 2 months. We have hung out a few times with friends and also alone a couple of times but we mostly talk on the phone. I like him alot but due to my circumstances cannot/will not take the friendship any further – I am in an unhappy marriage.

    My piscean is aware of this fact as we have both been very open to each other (he has been married before and is now separated). No sex has been involved but still our connection is quite intense…at one stage I would say that if you can have an affair w/out sex then I was probably having one. My conscience stops me from going any further…because USUALLY i believe in doing one thing at a time…so to speak. He has a couple of ‘friends’ and to be honest if I was single he would not be a good contender because he is not doing commitment and I wouldn’t like the idea of his ‘friends’. All of this considered…..i really like him and one minute I feel to call off the ‘friendship’ coz thats all it is at the moment and i cannot get to see him how I would like to. and the next minute I feel like I can’t. I distance myself from him deliberately cause I know he will cause me to ‘put myself in trouble’. But I also miss him when I don’t hear from him.

    If I don’t call him for a few days he gets annoyed (sarcastically) and then has been known to do the same to me (maybe to prove a point, maybe not)

    What do you think I should do…..for his and my own sake….Cut off the relationship or continue as it is and see where it leads.

    Thanks for your response in advance

  • mask August 7, 2010

    Can you advise me, please? I am the SAG, I met a man fish on Skype. We are knowing just only 2,5 month. From the beginning we wrote just about everything and nothing and I must say this writing was amazing. I wanted l to see the man who can write so beautifully. I started to slightly push for a meeting about three weeks .His response was that the time will come when we will meet. I could not be put off and on, I slowly began to talk about date, again. One day he wrote on the skype that he still is not ready for serious relationship and that he does not want to hurt someone who does not deserve and who is expecting more from it. (he was 4 months broken up his relationship … it lasted many years….. she broke with him…why I do not know yet .. (Whereas tried to find out why, the answer I did not receive)…..I wrote him that my relationship lasted many years, too…… that I would like to be only friend with him, just to go for a beer, some movie and so on.… that the SAG is not easily to obtain .. and if SAG something takes seriously it will take a long time …. honestly, I did not await a response on his part…but for 4 days after I wrote it, he appeared on skype…. and so far we are writing and write about everything … We are in touch 12 hours … from 9 am to 5 AM the next day (of course with a pause for a job). it’s unbelievable …. dream together, touching, we are taalking about a job…
    We finally met a month ago … some coffee, it took about three hours … we came home and go to Skype … we said our impressions of the dating …. The next day we saw about half an hour …. and then three weeks, I waited for the next date ….. but he has already suggested that we should meet, but he always had to do something else … but week ago we dated. it was the third date ))…. and after our the third date I went to Skype but he was not there … so I fell asleep, saying to me he does not like me … and to my surprise … . morning on skype 3 news – as you arrived home?, and if it was so bad that date? , so bad that date? and that the next time he would not speak so much that I will talk about yourself …………. and that he did not want to go away from me, but but he perhaps can not fairly show it……, and even I got txt, he hoped that the contact will not lose …. I wrote him on Skype that I thought I was boring him and so on. And I added that we can meet more in reality (if he wants) to learn about us .. no reaction on his part … The next two days, we again wrote from morning till night then …. two days he was not on the Skype…On Monday I wrote him txt – how are you and what about your daddy…..any answer….on Tuesday to hear from Skype that he has broken phone (connects via Mobile), what he will do for two next days … that the father will be in hospital …. and that on Wednesday he will be on Skype. .. and how I feel, what I am doing …. on Thrusday I sent him txt – how is father feels and any answer from him no…. Today is Saturday and any answer…. I probably know where he is, he mentioned it on our last date (in abroad), but I am not sure…. Why he did not answer me txt? I wea just asking about his father….I do not know what to think about it .. . need his space? Should I sent him txt? or should I wait he contacts me? Do you think we have the chance to be together? I feel great with him, even though I only met him three times …I am mad oveer him…I tried to not show him, but I tnink he feels it
    I was even surprised when he was on vacation with friends and we txt at least 5 per day ….he surprised me gave me a gift from his holiday…
    Please, give me advise. Thank you

  • Alan August 10, 2010


    Hope everything works out in the end. As to why a person would say stuff like that and not contact in say five days…….my personal thought is that he has a past issue which he is keeping in the closet. Whatever that may be, I’m not sure.

    Whether the incident reminded him of a past happenings or he is thinking that he may be revealing a bit too much that will make you think negatively of him. That’s usually why people do that I’d say.

    Scorpion girl,

    Your situation is kind of interesting as it is usually the reverse where if the person is shy he would be inclined to chat like crazy online but distant in face to face meetings. But in general it sounds like basically there are qualities about you that he likes. Just not enough at this point to take initiative in plunging further. So times such as you two bumping into each other is just a good convenient and “why not” time to try and get to know you better to see if something is there.


    I can’t really say too much about this situation as it doesn’t really deal so much with trying to figure out what the person is thinking. In my opinion, it should be more about thinking of ways how you can make your marriage better before even worrying about the other person.

    I am inclined to say that you are simply talking to that guy because he has qualities that you would like to see in your husband again. Example, maybe more compliments, initiative to be with you, etc. So I’d say for everyone’s sake it is better that you deal with your marriage first. Communication is the key.


    I always thought people would use Skype primarily for voice and video chatting. There is a good chance that he simply needs his space if everything about the situation with the father is true and all. I’m inclined to say that something about your live meeting made him less interested in you though.

    I think an important thing to keep in mind is that trying to complete a portrait of someone based mostly on the words they write in say a chatroom is not the same as actually meeting the person. Because it can be so easy to interpret the words in a different way than intended.

    That’s why in many cases too when people actually meet in-person they don’t see the same people that they envisioned. Hence, in cases like these it could be that he is slowly shying away as his vision of you wasn’t the same. With that in mind I think the best way to approach it is to use the old inviting routine. Example, think of something you genuinely need help with where he would be the perfect candidate and see how he responds to that. Whatever response he gives should be a semi good indicator in terms of his stance with you.

  • Gemgirl August 17, 2010

    Hello, I find you very insightful so here it goes….
    I dated this guy for about 6 months back when I was really young and things were great and light. We broke up because he entered a very demanding career, but stayed in contact as he told me that he could never see me as a friend. Six years later, we are both single and I would like to give it a shot. He has always made sexual jokes with me although we have never been intimate and made it clear that he is attracted to me (I think the sexual references are made in an effort to stay out of the friend zone). Recently we have been in touch via text and telephone, but I am the one always reaching out. He responds promptly to my text messages and last time I asked him to call me and he did it very promptly during his lunch break. He is a police officer and has made it clear that it is very difficult for him to have a relationship because of his schedule. I mentioned that I never slept with him because I cared for him and I didn’t want to be one more girl on his list and would rather keep him in my life as a friend. He also stated that he feels empty having random hook ups and that the reason why he never stayed around was because he didn’t want to break my heart. He added that I should call him and we could talk and text, but not hang out because he was sure he would make a move on me. In your opinion, does he like me or is he just being nice? Or perhaps he is drawn to the fact that we have never been intimate and just wants sex? How do I proceed? Should I be aggressive or have I done enough and the ball is on his court? By the way, he is 30.

  • Alan August 22, 2010


    To me it sounds like he really does like you. Example, you mention that you take initiative to reach out to him and in return he replies promptly. That is genuine interest in my view.

    At the same time, in my opinion it sounds like his mindset at this point is that he is a little conflicted as one side of him is saying “Time to settle down” while another side is saying “I don’t want to give up what I have”.

    Meeting a person like yourself embodies that settling down part as to him it seems like you obtain a ton of qualities that he is looking for in a women. I dare to say too, even though I don’t know him, that you are probably one of the closest ideal matches for him in his view and so he doesn’t want to screw up.

    In my opinion, the biggest fear for him is that if he takes the next step with you something might come up in the process that will destroy what was originally perceived as the ideal girl. Confusing? Well, think of it like a stereotypical transition from a dating relationship to a marriage where people say once you are married the fire will die. Therefore, a person doesn’t want that to happen and hence makes every reason in the world not to get married.

    Let’s be honest here. If a guy with my personality type truly did not want you to get close in any way they will not even entertain the thought of even talking or texting you back about things that will inevitably get you two closer together. This is one of those actions speak louder than words situations too I’d say.

    Is he drawn to the fact that you two have never been intimate? I think this comes down to what you mean by when you told him that you never slept with him because you cared with him. Example, are you saying he was desperately trying and you kept turning him away? Because if so then of course there is a chance that he is just trying to get some. But from what I am reading so far I think the above is a more likely scenario right now.

    So if the above is accurate and assuming that you really want to go for him then I think the best way to approach it is to be suggestive in such a way where your conversations with him will make him think more about what life would really be like with you beyond this friendship situation.

    You will have to be semi aggressive still due to the fear. But the important thing is to wipe that fear away from him that things will change for the worse as opposed to making things better for the both of you.

    I’m a taurus female and I’ve been in two ltr relationships with Piscean men, but the one Pisces man I will never understand is C. But all of Alan’s responses clarify many things about the “grey area” of the Pisces male psyche, which is infuriating and exciting at the same time. But ultimately, if the Pisces guy is too elusive for too long for too many times, you feel drained and are forced to walk away. That’s what I did 3 years ago; and in those 3 years, I met a fabulous Sagittarius man and have a beautiful 17 mo/old baby, and C (the Pisces guy) is about 3,000 miles away now and emails/texts me. I never ask him if he wants me back, but I emailed him this [because really, what do I have to “lose” now?] “I know this is crazy to ask you now, but how many times have you truly fallen in love in this lifetime?”, and 30 minutes later he replies “Hope your Friday is rocking? Response to your question I think maybe twice. I know that sounds crazy for 34 years, that means maybe being in love once every 17 years, crazy. Why you ask?” Later, he emails me “You are married and have a great family now. I just don’t know why you are so still in my thoughts, more than you should be. If you ever feel I am stepping over the line talking to you, please let me know and I will stop. I only want you to be happy…” So, yes I am happily married to another man now, but I still reminisce & ponder all the WHY’S with C?? If I were 100% single today, I do wonder if I’d be a hot commodity to him, or just another girl to run away from. Pisces men are a mystery; you have to be all these things at one time to them, and while you may be on their pedestal for however long, their idea of perfection is wholly idealistic, not realistic. They strive to understand the latter, but it’s not as pretty as what they see through their rose-colored glasses. You have to be sensitive, charming, feminine, strong but never tactless, overbearing and clingy. If you are these things, then be that and let the chips fall where they may, and live YOUR LIFE. Don’t stop going out, and don’t play games with a Pisces’ head and emotions. As tempting as it may be to retaliate, it will hurt you much more in the end. Be upfront with them, direct yet sensitive; then, they will ALWAYS know where you stand emotionally. That is very important to them no matter what the outcome will evolve to–And you will have a clean conscience; that is priceless. It is hard; I love C for who is and also for who I wished him to be more in my life. I’ll never forget what happened between us and what that experience taught me.

    All this advice, couldn’t read it all, think it freed me from my hang up.
    Thank you. My heart is singing a little tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRy8N1P1EUI&feature=related

    I feel so freed, no longer broken…. thank you with all sincerities, with all honesty I felt something for this piecian man that stung my heart, I know my love is intense, don’t think he could handle my love. I need all or nothing, and my heart is intense, and I need someone to trust me, cause im the most trusting person you would ever meet.
    When I had a fling with this piceian man, he said I was a cheat, he never actually asked, or thought to ask or give the chance, that me and my x had been talking bout splitting for some time, the night after I was with him, we broke up at 8am. Then thought we would try for our daughter, and since we had known each other since we were 14, we tried hard, mad an effort with affection, dinners, chatting everything a couple could do. There was no hope. We told each other there was nothing, we kind of knew it was over, and kind of happy going out without each other, e.g. clubbing, we knew there was nothing that we both where looking for someone else. I actually told him I was with someone else. He told me he had been. You see maybe I wasn’t an open book, but isn’t that what you said it’s about trust. This man has no trust for me, after all my forgiving, attempts to let him in. I would be open to being friends, and going out and getting messy and fuking round with big expensive toys, music, movies, most my friends are guys, and think he would make a good friend. But my heart aches, I feel an intense passion, it’s left a hole in my heart, I had to let go. SO many people can’t handle my intensity, I grab all my friends by the faces and give them intense kisses on the cheek, and I can see in their eyes that they know I love them, (that each time I do it that they are like wow, no one does that) and that I would do anything for them, (that’s my friends) imagine if I loved this man, I don’t think he could handle it. WHEN I hug people I connect with even if it’s the first time I meet them, I can tell they feel my intensity, and the look on their face is WOW. I grasp a hold on to a lot of people. I connect with people easily, Im a lover, im all love, and it’s full on. But it needs to be recipicated, even in a friend way, a first meeting of someone in a pub; I either love and trust straight away or not at all. All or nothing kind of girl. And so many people love that bout me. I love that about me. I’m the kind of girl that stops and asks cute little old ladies in the street if they are ok, give all my change in my wallet to the homeless, I have had many homeless friends, that I took time every week to speak to and connect with. I am just all love. Im the kinda girl if someone pays someone out for a diability, I will say how would you feel? If someone pays someone out for what they are wearing I will say, what happens if they cant afford anything else? (I am not saying I have the odd chuckle) (if they are honestly mean, I will say that is slack) And because this man thinks im a liar, cheat, twisted, and unworthy even as a friend or to trust me, when I trust him. It’s gone. Thank you for your amazing kisses.

    hello again alan.
    remember when i was telling you about my pisces guy? well things have changed, and i thought it would benefit others to read what i’m going through…
    so for others to know, me and this guy have been on and off since like may of this year. were both pisces signs but i’ve never dealt with a pisces guy. when i first met him he just wanted to be fwb, and i agreed. but when i would go over to “see” him we did more than have sex. like he was hanging out with me. talking about things he liked, opening up about himself, and acting like guys do when they hang with friends who are girls…
    needless to say that i like him now. theres things about him that i be and have in my life, and for some dumb reason him being so quiet makes me even more attracted i guess… but he keeps telling me that he doesnt want a gf. that hes got 2 jobs… one at night and one in the early morning, and he has goals and bills to pay off… but one thing he keeps saying that i think is the reason is that he has had other girls break his heart and he doesnt want that again.
    so pisces will call me, ask how im doing, strikes up ransom conversations, and then asks if i can come over. but now that im busy too, we havent seen each other since october.
    so now he has the upper hand over me, but i dont like jump at his every beck and call. i have been thinking of calling it off but i still hang around likea dummy. alan, do you understand pisces girls? or atleast my pisces guy in this situation?

    Ok, I hope you still check these comments… because I am really stuck on the fence with this guy. I’m a Virgo and he’s a Pisces (obviously). I normally have guys figured out in my head when we first start dating but I am so confused with him. We went to highschool together but didn’t talk much until we became facebook friends. He commented on how he liked a few of my pictures and I took that as the first hint that he was attracted to me. Then we would chat and he would ask things about my work and my family (I have 2 daughters). That was hint #2 right? Asking questions and showing interest. I thought I had him figured out. So, one day he text me to tell me to get a babysitter for that night… attempting to not seem excited about that, I replied “For…. ?” and he said so we can go out. Now I’m really excited and then he says “I was definitely just joking. I’m at a football game.” LOL I was so disappointed. He texts and calls often, but as soon as I say something that might hint that he’s into me – he tries to shut down the thought. WTF! I have a few Pisces guyfriends and they normally say hello like “hey beautiful” … he acknowledges me like one of his homeboys – ughhhh I’m so confused! HELP! 😕

  • Leochicka December 15, 2010

    You are very insightful and I was hoping you would be able to give me some input on my situation with my pisces…
    I met him a few months ago on a dating website. We instantly hit it off and went on numerous dates. I’d say we dated for about 6-7 weeks, when all of a sudden he became distant. Of course, he wasn’t the one to bring it up, I was. He admitted that he had a lot on his mind, he was sorry, he knew he had a wall up… blah, blah, blah.. but then said that he thought that his feelings for us should be stronger at this point in our relationship..that I am amazing, funny, super sweet, he love spending time with me, gets excited to see me, but he didn’t have emotions for me yet. I was like??? Huh? It’s been a while since I’ve dated, but I didn’t know there was a time frame for emotions… (Oh, I forgot to mention that I was also away on vacation for a week during those 6-7 weeks that we dated.) I was thoroughly confused. I felt like asking,, are you the woman in this relationship, or am I ? Needless, to say, we no longer date. We did agree to stay friends though. We had soooo much fun together, it was unreal! Plus, we have numerous common interests. So, we kept communicating for a bit, and then he goes an disappears for a while (week, week and a half)… I was confused, to say the least, plus it made me second guess the whole ‘let’s be friends’ agreement that we came to. Made me think that he said it just to appease me or make me feel better. I assured him that I was fine/ok and that he didn’t need to keep communication if he didn’t want to. He was adament that he did…. However, low & behold, just when I am about to write him off, what does he do? Texts me at 6:30 am Monday morning telling me to have a great day & he was thinking of me… WHAT??? He’s decided to come out and play again? and he’s been texting me for days and constantly tells me how I make him smile all day long … I’m sure it will come to an end when his mood changes or he finds someone else to pass time with. My question for you is do these men have a tendency to act this way? Retreat like this? Do you think he is using me merely to make himself feel good? He literally asked me the first day we were in contact again if I was happy that he was texting me again? Hello? Vain? Is it me, or is he sending me mixed signals here? Did he want to hear it from me cuz he likes to have his ego boosted or due to insecurities? Even though I am a Leo, I am insecure. I worry, that if I show him too much compassion/emotion- he sill take it the wrong way and think I want more than our friendship. Which… I’m not sure whether I do or not. I am confused as to what his motives are. He was/is an amazing person.. however his walls are definitely up. I would love to be there for him, but don’t want to be a china doll that he takes down off the shelf whenever he needs something/his spirits lifted/to pass time/to figure out what he wants/etc. Does that make sense? Do you have any thoughts? Input? Ideas? I really appreciate you taking the time to read my post. Thank you…

    I really liked your article. Maybe you can give me some insight into my situation. Pisces guy and I’m a Scorpio. Anyway, I’ve been working with this guy, not directly, since May. His body language suggests that he likes me, i.e. eyebrow raise, always looks at me, smooths his clothing to include socks. Plus he compliments me all the time, not on my looks, but on my intelligence and experience. He is very respectful of me. At our summer picnic he said that he didn’t think I was going to make it, suggesting that he was looking for me. I am smitten. Recently, a girlfriend suggested to him that he invite me to a Christmas party; without the invitation I would not have been able to go as it was for management and I am not a part of management. Anyway, he obliged. I got to the party first when he got there he checked in with me and I invited him to sit with my girlfriend, her boyfriend and me. He said he would, but he wanted to go say hi to some other co-workers. He never came back. At the end of the party, he came back to say good bye. By the way, I won tickets to a

  • Mod December 19, 2010

    New Year’s comedy show in a raffle (incidentally, I drew his ticket for the flat screen t.v., unfortunately he had traded his ticket…how coincidental is that???) So, when he came back to check in prior to leaving, I asked him if he wanted to go to the show. And he said…he was busy, he’d be going to dig razor clams…and then that he would think about it. I haven’t seen or heard from him since!!! I am really bugged out because I thought he liked me. He notes any change that I make to my work area, asks about my kids, gives me personal information, on and on. Last year he helped me stuff and stamp 180 envelopes! And he is a project manager! What gives??? Help Alan!


  • madhvi December 21, 2010

    Hi Alan,

    I need your advice, I have a Pisces boyfriend, we met last week everything was good when he left for home. Now suddenly he is not taking my calls, when I call he cuts my phone so I thought he is busy, now when I call there is no response. Strange thing is when I call from other numbers he is not picking them up also. I tried 10 different numbers. Send him mail, sms, but no response. I am Libran and going on crazy now. What is going on, what happened suddenly. A day before this person was taking of spending life with me and now where he vanished suddenly.
    Is he busy or left me what should I do wait for his call or keep trying. His lot of stuff is lying with me, some urgent work also is pending due to his non-response. Where he is?
    Pl tell me, just share with you , he is married and I am a divorced women.

    Does long distance relationship work well with pisces guys?

    I met this pisces guy (I’m taurean btw) last July. At first, I wasn’t really attracted to him. But contrary to your post, it was him who made the the first initiative. We were together on a business trip and stayed at the same hotel, separate rooms of course. In the first week, we get along well like friends but things changed when I got transferred to a room beside his room. He started to do things like he would give me morning wake up calls, and wait by the door so we can have breakfast together, go with me when I do groceries. But I didn’t do anything, I just accepted whatever he did but didn’t really responded in return. Then what he did was. He stopped making morning calls. I was like worried he wasn’t able to wake up so I was forced to call him. Then everything went opposite, it was now me calling him in the morning and I felt like I was falling into a trap. I was starting to like him. It was this one instance when he asked for a good night kiss on the cheek. He kissed me near my ear and it really made me so weak. He saw it and just smiled. And so it started, we had this secret “mutual understanding” relationship. Although our colleagues were teasing us, they never knew that when we are intimate when we are alone. That went on for a month and it was time for me to go back and he had to stay there for some more months. We never really talked about commitment. We never really exchanged “I love you” but I heard him say it twice but when I asked again he would take it back. I was thinking back then that when he comes back after the business trip, we could try our relationship. First few weeks we were apart, we would talk on skype. But then after that, he said he was getting “home sick” and had to go out most of the time. Then I heard news he was being linked to this other girl, I asked him about it and he just said those are only rumors and I believed him. Then come the time, we were talking and he said that I might find someone new already and so I answered jokingly that maybe he was the one who has found another. And right there and then, he admitted that he has developed feelings for this colleague of ours who is there with him. I was hurt but I can’t do anything about it. I asked about our relationship and about me. He said he thinks I’m perfect and he is happy with me but there is something lacking. He used to have this ex-gf and the happiness he felt for that girl he still hasn’t found again. I was expecting he would say something about this new girl but the excuse he made was about his ex. He never really mentioned anything about the new girl. I accepted everything and never really asked anything. He requested that we be friends. I said ok. Do you think it’s ok to be friends with him still? He did say “friends for now”. I was like no “for now” it would just make me hope. So he agreed, ok friends. He just got back but we haven’t really seen each other or talked to each other because of the holidays. I just want to know what he meant about friends (for now). Does he want to reconsider our relationship? Does he honestly think I would just take him back just like that after he admitted having feelings for another girl. We were apart for only 2 months. It was expected anyway cause our relationship wasn’t that deep I guess. We were together for only a month.

    I don’t know where to start 😛 ~ my english is not that good so PARDON me -Im a SCORPIO WOMAN-intense,secretive,emotional,misterious

    I was on fbook and i was trying to look for a friend that interest me the most by just looking at there face and likes, but i suddenly see this PRETTY GUY i was instantly attracted to him because his goood looking LAD! and decided to add him right away…then after AN hour of surfing in the internet..I decided to start a conversation to him…TELLING THAT I LIKE HIM… THAT IM SORRY FOR ADDING HIM SO RANDOMLY….

    he replies no need to b srry let’s b friend how about thAT?

    i WAS THINKING MAYBE HE DIDN’T LIKE ME for saying that i like him, that’s why he asked me to b his friend and i just said YES cuz i know it start from just a friend to a new relationship but for me its just admiration because his such a BEAUTIFUL GUY and his MUSICIAN too! which makes me like him more n more.. im his FAN… it was not even a long convi cuz i know his a BUSY MAN doing his music,,so after a week or so i went online n FBOOK and for me it was very RARE to this guy to b online… so I make the first move saying HI to him in chat, he did the same way too but then it wasn’t a very long chat that he immidiately say I G2g let’s talk nxt time..so i PAUSE and think did i just make him RUN AWAY it because of what i said to him in the PAST that so am confuse??…we rarely talk in fbook like were nothing but a STRANGER now~

    but what’s the point of asking me to b his friend even tho im doing my best to b like a FRIEND to him. he did once ask me how’s my xmas and i reply~ but didn’t give much detail to it cuz maybe he doesn’t like those ppl who give lots of information even tho its just a short question..but i do understand that his on d BAND but he treated me like an INVISIBLE friend 😥 unlike his other mates but i still respect that cus it his closes friends before he ask me become one.

    now i look like a fool w8ting to his replies even tho i know his not gna reply much about it!! btw his PISCES man, very mysterious, hard to get etc..but still admire him :mrgreen: Im quite too but wenevr i feel comfortable with ppl arround me i became more n more safe that’s what i felt to him right now but he doesn’t realize it at all..

    so am kind of tired reading about pisces and scorpio comaptible thing and i still believe at some point hell regret it 😆 👿 or maybe not haha who knows…

    but i lke the atmosphere here its like a DEBATE from different sign just for PISCES male.

  • Sei December 30, 2010

    additionally is he not interested with a scorpio woman like me cuz they’re both alike….what do you think is it just more than a friend or for nothing but stranger?

    anyway he lives in JAPAN and i lIVE n UK maybe that’s d anotha reason to it as well.

    maybe its hard for him to show how he felt…right? so i decided to let go and in fact I ADMIRE him only but i felt something wevenr towrds this guy..his friendly to all of his friend but doesn’t tlk to me that much.. 😕 ❓ ❗


  • Anna January 10, 2011

    Hey alan,

    i got a couple of questions for you and i was wondering if you can answer them. it’s ovbs about a pisces guy lol. anyways this is my story. i meet this guy through a friend and thought he was really cute. i have added him to my e-mail and we chated ever since. he has told me i was cute but not sure if he was only being polite because i said he was cute first. we talked alot for a couple of weeks more like everyday he would usually msg me and sometimes i would msg him. i found out that he was talking to one of my good guy friends about one of my friends and he questioned my guy friend about me but the convo was more about my friend, so i thought he wasn’t interested in me but more of my friend. we stopped chatting everyday. so one day i was going downtown i thought i would give him another try and see if he wanted to go. he said he would like to go. when Saturday came around he actually ended up meeting up with me downtown surprisingly because i thought he wouldn’t make it. we talked about all night and there was some eye contact. he would sometimes hold me close because it was cold outside since it is winter. there was one point we were dancing and my friend looked troubled so i grabbed his hand lightly to come but he adjusted his hand to hold my hand. he did that about 3 times that night. i have no idea if he is interested in me or if im just another girl he wants to play a game with. what do you think?

    [1/15/2011 8:15:13 PM] HIM: thanks
    [1/15/2011 8:27:26 PM] ME: I don’t know why you are behaving like this… as an intelligent man as you are, I thought you’d understand I wanted to become a plain friend…didn’t know you’re the type who rejects even a simple friendship…and this is what I don’t understand, as every person for me in the world is as valuable as myself, even if I’ve met them online…but, nice to meet you, anyway.
    [1/15/2011 8:31:19 PM] ME: If you need a friend (though I know u have lots) or just somebody to say “hi” to, I’ll be here… I just didn’t want to have guilt feelings of any sort and certainly didn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings intentionally…
    [1/15/2011 8:34:13 PM] ME: ok, I won’t disturb you now… peace…

    Good Evening Mr. Alan,

    I need a bit of help. I like a guy who is a Pisces. we met on an online dating site (we both left it now). but we talked for a while, i asked him out, but he told me he’s very cautious so i didn’t bring it up again after the second time, thinking this would go nowhere. After talking for 2 months, he brought up the hanging out. We set up the hang out and everything. We met in January and had an awesome time! we pretty much hang out for 8 hours! i was so thrilled! and he wanted to hang again, like asap! he’s so cool and down to earth, and I’m falling for him hard! lol we’re still talking via facebook and text. we plan to hang out again this week Saturday! but i hit a dead end, he’s leaving for Massachusetts Feb 24 but its a bit iffy with his landlord. I was thinking of telling him i like him in a poem, were at the end i say “I like you” since he loves poems (and i used to right it), it would be great! but i don’t know how or when to tell him, and i don’t want to stop him from moving either. I want to know officially if he likes me before, i break the news to him. If you want more details just ask. Oh, don’t pisces like gifts? he was omg! when i gave him a gift, i plan to give him another for his b-day in march but he doesn’t want it. Giving gifts to people is the ultimate way of showing i care (usually lavish gifts, if i have the money lol). Thanks for the help! 😀

  • Samantha February 8, 2011

    Oh and he broke up with his gf (for 4 yrs) who they planned to get married but it went down hill. He said he’s not looking for anything now, but you never know, also i don’t want to fall into rebound.

  • Triece February 15, 2011

    Hi Alan,

    I am so happy that I came across this website today and I enjoyed your story… I had a question that I would like to know the answer to…? I am a Capricorn woman and I am interested in a Pisces man that attends the same college as me… In my opinion he is a really nice guy and I would really like to get to know him more. Just recently a friend of mine told him and ever since then he always says hello and has a big grin on his face… But lately he has been trying to spark conversation with me and I enjoy it but I don’t want to get too excited just because he talks to me more… With him sparking conversation with me and being more friendly all of a sudden could this mean that he likes me or is that normally just the personality of a Pisces man? He is very funny to me and he just has the traits that I look for in a man…

    Also… If you think he does like me how would you recommend that I show him that the feeling is mutual?

    Please help…lol…

    Thanx for reading,

  • Triece February 15, 2011

    By the way, I meant that ever since my friend told him that I like him he has since spoke to me and had a big smile on his face…sorry I didn’t proof read…lol

  • aquariun girl March 2, 2011

    Hey Alan,
    There’s a pisces guy and i kinda have a huge crush on him
    he is born on march 17 and i am born on 5 february, most of the time during classes i find him staring at me and then when i catch him looking towards me he immediately looks somewhere else. Some of my friends who know him a bit say that he is shy, and somtimes it happend that when i look at him and he see’s me looking at him, he raises his eyebrows up and then down. Sometimes he behaves as if i don’t exist even though i was present there. We have chatted three times in Facebook, and i am always the first person to start the conversation, but then he seems to chat very sweetly. We have never talked to each other face to face, my friends are telling me to say him a ‘HI’ in school, but i never got the courage to do so, as i am not sure about his reactions, whether he would completely ignore me or respond nicely. I am extremely confused.
    I would be glad if you suggest me some tips on how to go about it
    thank you !

  • Alan March 10, 2011

    Oh my,

    Sorry all, lots of catching up to do I see as I have been gone for awhile. I’ll try my best to answer each comment. And yes, I do try and read each and every one of them. Just haven’t figured a way in life to clone myself to be everywhere at once.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    Always interesting to hear how things are turning out with people. In terms of me understanding a pisces girl, I think it has more to do on whether or not I understand why certain people do and feel the way they do in certain scenarios. General answer with that would be I am no mind reader or anything as I have expressed many times, but I just base everything from what I know and have seen. Was there something specific you wanted my opinion with in regards to that?

    For the guy in your situation, I still think my original comments I gave you about him holds true and it still fits with the scenario you just gave me. Mostly about keeping the options opened, so to speak.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    For your situation there is so much back-story to it that would reveal more information. For example, how did you two became Facebook friends? Did he just add you out of the blue or did you add him? Based on what you wrote though, it sounds like he thinks in some ways that you two have no chance with each other despite you having qualities that he really likes.

    I am just using this for the sake of an example, but it could be the fact that you have children already which makes him unable to envision being with you in the long term in that type of way and so it is a constant forced “sway off” when it comes to a relationship mentality. So whenever it feels like it is getting too outside the friendship area that part of the brain kicks in to back out.

    That is the most logical answer I can think of at the moment and would kind of fit in my view. If that is the case too, you have to go with the sneakier route and find ways to ask him about his general views about relationships. His philosophy when it comes to love, what he looks for in an ideal marriage scenario, etc. Just treat him as a “homeboy” too and it will be easy to dissect this way.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    The main type of people that would act like that from what I see are ones that want reassurance that you yourself feel empty in a way without them. The extreme example would be you phoning him everyday saying how you can’t bare to not be around him everyday and such. Basically, he is looking for something like that.

    That would explain why he went absent all of a sudden as it was more of a “I hope she does do that” type of test and how you mentioned he contacted you afterwards with all those questions to reassure himself as it didn’t seem like you took the plunge for his test. I guess insecurity would be a good word for this scenario.

    I don’t know the person personally as he could very well be just a guy that is using you for his own ego, but my guess based on what I read is that his way of testing a girl is just extremely counterproductive for a person like yourself. Even by reading your comments it sounds like you could eat him for breakfast. So for him it’s probably better to be a bit less procedural in his approach.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    My assumption would be that for whatever reason he doesn’t want the whole world to think that you two are an item. Why that is the case? I’m not sure of course as I don’t exactly know anything about him. That kind of explains the party situation too as inviting you shows he cared. But not sitting at the table with your friend and her boyfriend is like the perfect scenario for him to get others to not even fathom the thought that you two are even remotely close to being a couple in anyway.

    If that is the case too and you are trying to pursue him then you need to find ways to do it outside of the work realm environment. Hence, him saying he is going to dig razor clams could have been a subtle hint on something that he does and would give you a window of opportunity to do so.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    I am kind of confused at your message. You say he is your boyfriend and at the same time he is married? Generally speaking though, I can’t really tell what is going on as there could be infinite amounts of reason why he is not picking up calls. But from what you wrote it sounds like he is simply trying to avoid you for whatever reason.

    Using a stereotypical example, if he is indeed a married man then it would make sense for him to not want anyone to know that he is with you. Imagine the backlash that would cause to him.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    My general thoughts on long distance relationships is that they only work if both parties are actively working to actually be together in-person. It shouldn’t be one person trying so hard and not the other.

    It’s interesting that you mention that you felt like you were falling into a trap. Cause based on what I read this was most likely just a challenge for him. Basically, see how far you can woo the lady and get her to be all over you.

    With that said, if that is all true then saying “friends for now” is basically just a way to keep you hanging. If a guy truly cared for you and wanted to be with you they would find the time to do so and would look forward to seeing you. Having to go out all the time cause he was “home sick” contradicts all of that I say.

    If it was me and assuming everything is accurate, I would just treat the person as a colleague. Business only.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    Sounds to me like he was replying to you initially and all to be polite and courteous. Even I am inclined to say you two are kind of like strangers to each other still due to the way you two have met. If he is a musician too then it makes more sense why he is simply trying to be nice to everyone as you are a “fan” so to speak as well

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    To me it sounds like he is interested in you. If the person is sensitive then even holding someone close cause of the cold whether should be a semi big deal in their minds. Overall though, there is not much to go by at the moment as it doesn’t sound like there is anything concrete to judge with on whether or not this is a serious relationship situation. But generally speaking it sounds like the interest is there.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    This is going to be a really subjective interpretation of that chat log as I don’t exactly have a story book on all the details that lead up to that point. It would seem though that he felt you came off very strong and aggressive when it came to an opinion of some sort that makes him question your personality and if you are someone he wants to associate with.

    For example, maybe you were constantly telling him that he is the one for you in life and that you will devote everything to him. Then, maybe he tried to slow it down but you were still aggressive in that manner.

    I am basing that on the odd comments such as him apparently saying “This is the fate you created for yourself. I can’t and don’t want to deal with your energy any longer. Sorry.”

    As well, other lines like “you have nothing to appologize for you. You have every right to be precisely who you are.”

    As expected after, he wanted to end it. That part is pretty black and white. It’s mainly the exact reasons that are unknown as again I don’t exactly have every detail.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    I don’t think there is a reason to wait in telling the person that you like them in that scenario as it sounds like you two are in a semi comfortable position where either person can announce it to see a reaction. Your suggestion of a poem can actually be a very good way to do it if the person has a personality like mine. Cause you know that is something the person had to put some time and effort into doing.

    As always though, the key to seeing if he truly likes you and all is to see what initiatives he takes to contact you and such. Similar to the poem too, gifts are always appreciated as long as the person feels that you put thought into it and all.

  • Alan March 10, 2011


    If he is actively trying to initiate conversation with you then he is definitely interested in you one way or another. If that was me, I think the best way for you to show that the feeling is mutual in a neutral way is to simply take initiative in inviting him to do some kind of activity.

    Example, maybe you two talked about a TV series a lot and so asking if he wants to watch it with you would immediately give him the reassurance that the feeling is mutual, so to speak. While in some ways you can say it’s like you asking him out on a date, there are other variety of ways to do it. Another creative way for example is you can offer to help him in some kind of task he needs to do. Many times with this particular circumstance, it is reassurance to them that you like them enough to even offer that.

    As well, how he accepts or rejects the offer is a good telling sign of just how interested he is in you.

  • Alan March 10, 2011

    aquariun girl,

    I think the best course of action is to use Facebook as your main tool to open him up a bit at this point if you say he is a shy person and that you are just fearful of how he would react to you. Example, find a game app that you think he would enjoy and ‘invite” him to play it with you. If the person is interested in you in that way they will take initiative to participate or at least reply back to you asking what the game is about and all.

    Or likewise, send say a funny clip. Again, the person will take initiative to say respond to you after if they like you. In my opinion, that is probably a good way to approach the situation with these circumstances.

  • Princess J March 21, 2011

    Hi!!! Can u help me?? I have a big issue w a Pisces guy too, I felt soo confused omg. Okok it started two months ago I added him on facebook so we chatted on fb messages.

  • Gabrielle March 21, 2011

    Did u get my post cous i cant see it

  • gabrielle March 21, 2011

    i am an aries girl with pisces venus and mars. i am an african girl .i happen to like a pisces guy with venus in aquarius . he is the youth leader at my universisty.he is an asian guy . the first time i joined the youth choir , he was very nice. i am very outspoken but because i didnt want people sterotyping me as african hood and loud which i am not i was very quiet in the group. as a result this guy use to tell me to loosen up that i was too shy which i wasnt. he use to pick me out of the group when he asks questions and i dont yell out the answer like others. he would keep asking me till i start laughing.
    one day i added him n facebook. he was nice but he never initiated contact. however whenever i chat with him he was very nice and would ask me questions but he always leave after like 10mins. then one day he ignored my comment .. being a blunt aries i told him and he apologised and gave some reason . since then he replies me like 2-5mins after..lol well one day i called him but i became nervous and didnt have much to say, he helped me out and asked more questions when i got hooked. lol like he did again he told me he had to go after 15mins plus. anyhow i started thinking he doesnt like me but then he picked me and free others to be among his special clan to help the youth..
    from my point of view i find him sparing at me but maybe my judgement is clouded.
    jst yesterday i could see him looking at my side but he didnt come up to me at first. after a few parade and pretending play with a little girl near by he came and said hello to me and sat near me and started asking me about my day.. we talked for quite a long time onlike before. while we were talking he kept saying hello to people. it got to a stage where i stopped tlking and he told me to continue that he can multitask and i did..

    i dont know does he like me? if not why does he alway pick on me? i know now he plays with my little sister ? is he jst doing his job?
    i am the type of girl to ask a guy out but i dont want to come off as desperate african girl if he doesnt like me.. help quickly pls !! lol

  • Michelle March 28, 2011

    Very good observations! You should get paid to do this lol.
    I seem to have alot of pisces in my life, one of which is my mom.
    The other, a guy I was recently liking. To this day, I still can’t decipher the mysteries of you fish. You guys are hard to catch. As with any sign wrought with complications and protracted struggles.

    One thing I know for sure we can not have anything without a challenge. Everything a endless chase, power struggle etc. My situation with the pisces…I just chose to take a step back…I sense an attraction….a rare closeness there…but keeping the momentum going is proving to be exhausting. I know pisces are not the ones to take the first steps…but I made alot of iniative…and even though there is something undeniably there…I can’t see myself as a Leo/Virgo woman making all the moves to push it along…. I would feel like im trying to woo myself. haha.

    The way I see it, if it is truly meant to be…something will happen to bring us together. Until then, I’m spending time to learn about myself and live in the moment. Your advice to all these women has given some great insight on not just pisces makes…but men in general. Thanks! 😀

  • Libra Girl April 17, 2011

    Hi Alan!
    I took a look through your post, and you’re a REAL helper!!
    I have a small question, I have this Pisces friend I met through a group of friends, we study in the same university, same major bot not the same grade, anyway, we are currently working together on a project, and it’s working perfectly so far… I really like him but the problem is that I feel he is just “using” me. He only shows interrest in me whenever he needs something from me, like “please find me this document”, or “please I need you to translate this article” and such, but when there’s nothing related to work, he just grins, with this BIG smile on his face, says HI, and then TOTALLY ignores me, like if I doesn’t exist… But in other times when we are alone, he is so warm and gentle toward me that I’m in the clouds!! 😳
    We did chat few times on Facebook, sometimes he even started the conversation, but it was mostly related to either studies (since he’s my Guru, lol :mrgreen: ) or work. What disturbs me the most is two of our friends (Girls) reactions when I’m around him… they start laughing and teasing him in very childish way, but I try my best to ignore them and not to make a big deal of it!! when I go back, I think I “sticked to the book” and didn’t do anything “over” to really show my interrest in him, but I’m still very upset about the friends reactions and the way I feel he is giving me the cold shoulder sometimes… I can’t really figure out what he feels towards me, can you please help me??

  • Triece April 19, 2011

    Ok Alan… So I told my Pisces that I like him and wanted to get RO know him. He said that would be good so I gave him my number… He used it by sending text messages but The conversation was SOOOOO boring. I felt that I was sparking conversation but he would always seem to put out the spark by answering texts in one word or just taking forever to text back… What could this mean? Is he playing hard to get or is he just not interested? He stills talks to me when he sees me but it seems like one on one conversations through texting are just no exciting at all… Do you think that I should continue to try?

  • Triece April 19, 2011

  • Sweet girl April 27, 2011

    Dear Alan,

    I feel such a relief to chance upon your website. I have this to nobody else. I am married (not happily) and have 2 young children. I am perfectly to stay in my marriage for as long as it takes to nuture my children till they are old enough to understand why dad and mom don’t get along….but 2 months ago, I started a new job and met a guy (he is piscean). I felt attracted to him gradually and My instincts tells me he likes me too. In the beginning, he would come and initiate conversations and we chatted fir a while. But it never got to talk about personal stuupff, just work and stuff. I love to joke around and once, he came to ask me something about work (i believe it was probably an excuse to see me), being my playful self, so i smiled and joked that i became his secretary. After that incident, he stopped coming by tor weeks. But i knew he was not angry because when we met each other in office, he smiles at me and on several occasions I bumped into him, he would send me glances. After not hearing from him for a while, i decided to chat him online one day and he responded. We chatted for an hour. He suggested lunch and I agreed. But it has been 1 week and he hadn’t make any move to ask me for lunch. I am confused. Does he actually like me at all or is he just waiting for me to make a move? He always comes by my area and he sees me but i feel like he’s holding back. What do i do? I am also in a bad situation right now because i am not sure if he knows i am married. Although my husband has agreed to a separation when my kids are older, i am still legally married and ?i do not want this guy to feel like i am using him for any reason. I like him alot for some strange reasons although I admit i was never pasdive guys. But i know nothing about what he’s going to do next and thats bothering me.

  • Cancer girl May 4, 2011

    Hi Alan! I need your help.. I met this Pisces guy online.. he asked me to meet him twice.. (I was a bit suspicious because we didn’t talk online first before we meet in person.. scared really.. and the first thing that he says is ‘wanna go to ___?’ ) first time I rejected him and a couple weeks later.. he asks me a second time and I rejected him again… a week later I told him why I rejected the two invites .. I told him something real personal and It was painful.. but I owe him a explanation.. i feel so awful.. he seems like a wonderful guy.. but after I told him what happened he ignored me.. question is: 1) The reason why he wants to meet is because for physical attraction? or he really wants to see me? 2) Why is he ignoring me after I told him so painful and personal?

    Another scenario (this was from a year ago).. hes a pisces ..met him at his brother’s house (they were getting ready to go out to dinner and I was getting ready to leave) I bumped into him.. he introduces himself to me.. but he was so shy ..I smiled at him and looked him in the eye ..he looks away with a tiny shy smile.. when I looked at him.. he reminds me of a cute puppy lol

    Thanks so much! 😀

  • Jennifer May 19, 2011

    So, here’s my question…great post btw. I’m a Scorpio woman, and I am very interested in a Pisces man in my Graduate major. Our first class together, we were put on a lab team and got chatting, and he offered to help me with a class coming up. Fast forward to now, a year later, we’re still in classes together (said class hasn’t happened yet), we’ve exchanged the friendly hellos and texts, had a couple conversations in person alone or over text ( I know, I know ), and he’s always very pleasant when we do run into each other. He is single. I’m shy, and he’s shy. I’ve never made the first move. I asked him if he had interest to see a movie coming out that no one else wanted to see with me, over text, and he never answered. I’m confused. I want to push, because I hate waiting, but also that’s what I’m used to doing, so I’m actually holding back. Help? Feel free to e-mail me. Thanks for giving some insight into the minds of men. 😀

  • chan May 19, 2011

    ok here goes my story, I met this pisces last year November, just briefly. A mutual friend introduced us. At the time i was considering getting back with my ex bf, so when mr pisces smsed, i would reply but never lead him on. This continued right into Feb, we were friends that chatted. Needless to say things never worked with my ex. Mr Pisces knew that i was in a relationship and i was honest to him about it, he also knew when i became single again. The chatting between us two become more regular, and we ended up chatting everyday. He started inviting me with to friends and parties. We both agreed we friends, but we could not deny the huge sexual chemistry we had. We started kissing and and holding hands etc. One eve we were both a bit drunk, and i asked him, how he feels about me. He avoided the question. I asked him again the next day, and we had this whole uncomfortable conversation where he said that he only wants friendship and he cant offer me more. I really dont understand, cause for a moment there i really thought this guy was into me. Ok, so his stop texting me etc. What do i do, just let it ok. I really like this guy, but then again i cant continue being the friend that he kisses on occasion. Please i need your advice Alan. Oh and i am a taurus

  • Dey May 22, 2011

    hey Alan. i read your article and wow its really interesting! i would like to ask you a couple of things about pieces guy.
    here is the story:
    we know each other since october 2010 i think. and i think we really do have some feeling of each other. at first i dont like him, but He is the type of guy that i would like to be with. and im an aquarius girl. for some reason i just realize now How sweet is he. i think its too late i guess. Then at december somehow he is really sweet, He want to gave me dog, He give me some girl stuff and He even give song by Mike Posner “Please don’t go”. and it was really sweet of Him but i do really like Him but i don’t really express my feeling to Him 100%. Then at January, He started to say that He like me a lot. i even ask him to post what you described about me on twitter. and He said “im not a romantic person”. But then a minute later he post “You make me feel brand new & Never been feeling like this since 2 years ago.” Then im sure at january 11 He was going to ask me out. but i said not yet, im not ready yet.because most of my friends doesnt like him because He has so many tattoos and didnt go to the same church as i did then i even told him all this stuff. but i still know what is my choice and suddenly everything started to changes by February. He thinks that i dont really like him seriously, i was so cold to Him. but some rumor said that He meet someone already. a new girl. Then at February 14, He text me and say “Let’s just be friend.”. Then at february 15, i went to meet up with Him then i said sorry, i am serious with Him then stuff a lot of things. He said he is confused. He dont trust me anymore. He wants a prove for me. and a lot off stuff. i beg Him then he said. “love takes time, be patient” He said that before on december. Then at 17 february, it was my birthday & He cant come and stuff. Well at the end….. someday. we talk again since long time no keep in touch. He said that He date someone before for the first time they walk together it was 14. and he said that He is seriously like but i dont look serious to Him and stuff then He gave this quote “a girl and a guy can just be friend but one day the might gonna fall inlove with each other. temporarily. at not the right time or maybe forever”. and i really think He is a jerk playing with me. We never been talking again, and somehow i really close with His guy friend, and i think i had a little crush on his friend but i do still like him, and somehow he talk to me then i said his friends keep drop me home and suddenly the next morning He is at her guy friend house, but i dont know what they talk about and i know this because his guy friend told me. i think He is jealous but its hard to predict, or even i dont know what is on his mind seriously. Then lately we talk He said He is having argue with her girlfriend and He regret not dating with me, then suddenly He act cold but He still dating. Then two days ago He gave me song by “kaskade- never ending”. and i said what is that and is that for me or just for me to hear? then He said “for you to hear&for you”.

    something like that. So i dont really know whats wrong with Him. Is He seriousy with me. why does He keep sending all this songs for me when He is still dating? it sucks 🙁 i really need your help. if you could reply on my email it would be so awesome! thank you so much Alan.

    Hey Alan,

    I’m an capricorn/aquarius (depends on what sites you read). Anyways I have a very close friend who is a male pisces and I’ve developed serious feelings for him. A few months ago I knew he liked me, he would always want to hang out with me or take me out and if we were in a group of friends he would always want to be beside me, also whenever I talked about other guys he would seem very interested/jealous as well. Anyways most of our friends picked up on our growing relationship and since another close friend of mine liked him I told the remaining group I didn’t have any feelings for him to spare her feelings. He found out about my reaction to the way he was acting towards me and when he was confronted about the realtionship by another friend he denied any feelings for me. I noticed soon after that, that he was ignoring me and avoiding me. He actually just stopped talking to me. Now another of my friends likes me and asked him to ask me out – I said no to that guy because I really like this pisces guy but used the fact that I’m not ready for a relationship as an excuse. I don’t know what I should do now because I really want him back in my life as more than just a friend.


  • ScorpGirl June 6, 2011

    Hello Alan, I have a couple of questions I would like to ask you about this Pisces man I’ve been talking to, but I can’t find the “Contact” section you referred to in one of your responses. :-/ Can you respond to my e-mail or something then? I’m really curious and interested in this Pisces but I’m just not sure if he feels the same. Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
    Thanks 🙂

  • Shakeerah June 6, 2011

    Hi Alan,
    I was reading your article to get a better understanding of this pisces male I have intrest in. I met him off of a dating website. This male has pursued me first and he was honest enough to inform me he was deploying for a couple of months. So once he informed me, i just didn’t really respond to him simply because I’ve been down that road of dating someone who was deployed and built my hopes up for nothing.

    I finally gave in because he seem to show a lot of interest and he stated he wanted to let me know he was interested, however he is deploying and he wanted to be honest with me. So we hung out for a couple of months before he deployed, he given me so many ways to communication while is he deployed such as e-mails, mailing address ect. before he left he closed his account on the site I met him off of and he stated there was no need for the site because he met me.

    Before He left I would get text saying how beautiful I am to him and how he is thinking of me. He also went as far as telling me some personal things about himself. Now it’s a month out that he is deployed we talk via skype or e-mail but I notice the communication is slowing down, it now feels like I’m doing more of the pursuing . He keeps saying that he is busy working 7 days a week, which I understand because I was once deployed too.

    When I reach out to him and I say things like I’m feeling neglected he will respond and say oh just busy with working, or don’t you think I might just be busy with working, I reassure him I do understand, but I just feel it shouldn’t be hard to take 5 secs to say I’m thinking about you too or I miss you too. In the past he states he likes when I say how I feel and if he doesn’t respond back then he doesn’t have a problem with what I say. As the person that I am I need reassurance and I’m just wondering if this is just a pisces way of backing off bc he does care, or am I just looking way too much into this and he does like me. He is just confusing to me help me out here. 🙄

    P.S. I don’t want to read him wrong and move on to someone else and hurt him if things are good between us.

  • shymumma June 8, 2011

    I have a pisces guy at my office that I think is into me, well he treats me differently to the other loud mouth women in the office. I’m shy and he seems shy too, just wondering if he’s just being polite or whether I should make the move.

    He jokes with me, playfully hits my shoulder, holds the door open for me, but won’t look me in the eye, goes out of his way to crack jokes to ensure I’m in ear shot blah blah, has been subtley cc me in on emails that provide information about his children????

    I’m a tad confused by it all, one minute I think he’s just being polite and nice, next I think he’s into me?

    The only obsticale I see at the moment is another woman who’s a Capricorn who is very over procective of this Pisces guy.

    Suggestions on how or where to take this?

  • PiscesCameraGal August 3, 2011

    Hi Alan, I just got finished reading just about every posting on your site. I love your point of view, It is so honest and valid. Thank you so much for making a resource like this one!

    I hope you are still responding to these postings. I am at a loss with my Pisces guy. If you haven’t figured out, we are both pisces signs. We met through a mutual friend last year and became friends on FaceBook – But there was no initial connection as at the time as he had a girlfriend. He is 25 and a musician. This past Feb I went to a performance of his. After he performed, we all were talking, and I noticed the entire time he was just intently staring at me. At one point the mutual friend noticed and asked him was he Okay. And he laughed his anxious laugh and said he was fine. The following day he commented on my wall and said he was glad I came to the show. He also sent me a “poke” And I did not think much of it at first – so I sent him one back, and this began a six week poking war. Well, nothing was said until eventually messaged him, to see how his tour was going and such and he eventually sent his number, and said we can text/talk if I like. Left it at that. So I texted him and it began this really amazing set of texts going back and forth. He called the morning of my birthday. (Think, 12:05 AM) Which I thought was incredibly sweet. And he asked if we could hang out after he got back from his tour. So we went on our first (Date?) And spent the entire day together. We went to the mall and had this amazing connection. Shopping together, I noticed we had such similar taste it was mind blowing. I could pick things out for him, and he would love it. He picked things out for me, and It would be exactly what I would buy. I honestly fell in love with him that first day, as we were together a good eight hours. He then asked me out the following week (We live 30 miles away from each other, so getting to see each other is always in advance) I believe we were together twelve hours that day – and I was convinced I wanted to date him. He opened up to me about his family, his ex’s, his goals, his failures, even marriage. And I shared just the same about my life. As the end of each night went, we would hug goodbye and I would stand there waiting for a kiss, or some type of signal that he liked me and wanted to be more than just friends.

    Well, that was six months ago, and since then I have fell hard. We have spent quite a bit of time together since. About four times a month. But I noticed as the months went by, even though every time we are together, we have the most INCREDIBLE time together and neither of us ever want to leave the other… And yes, he compliments me, jokes with me, and he will intensely, gaze into my eyes and hold the gaze until I look away. He brings his best friends around me, and he shares old songs that he doesn’t play anymore with me. – But without fail, I stand there at the end of our meeting …And it is always the same. Nothing. A gentle hug goodbye, and the perfect gentleman that he is, he will open the car door for me, and then we go our separate ways.

    More recently he does not text me as often as he used to, so I end up texting him first. He does not call me, but if I call him we usually have really great engaging chats, but I am so fearful of calling and rejection, I never call myself.

    The last few times I’ve seen him, I made it up in my mind that I would make a move, only because after six months – I wondered if it was that he did not realize I liked him. So when we went to a concert. I wrapped myself around him and – he didn’t move me away. We stood very close to each other the entire time of the concert, and he never moved me from him. Then, another time while we were waiting for my ride to arrive, he fell asleep in his car – and I took the opportunity to lay my head on his shoulder, and when he awoke, he did not move me away, didn’t seem uncomfortable either (He’s not really touchy feely). A few minutes later he rested his head on top of mine. Now, if he did that unconsciously (he was in and out of sleep) I’m not sure. But when we got out of the car, he nudged me gently and smiled at me. Then when I got to my car he held my gaze once again. It just continues on like this.

    Last week, we went to see a movie and spend the day together. Then his friend called and asked if he could hang out with him. He told him he was with me, but he could hang out with us if he wanted. So we picked him up, and that is how we spent the rest of the day. The three of us hanging out. It wouldn’t have been so bad, if his friend wasn’t romantically interested in me (which I picked up right away, but my guy didn’t.) So it made for a very awkward situation. Since then, he very rarely gets in touch with me. And this wouldn’t be the first time, There has been times he could go a week without texting me. But then I will reinitiate things, and it’s like we never stopped talking at all.

    Last thing i should mention. He has been in ALOT of long term relationships. He told me this the first time we had dinner together. He said it is something he regrets, and he even said he always wanted marriage but isn’t so sure if it will ever happen (fyi, Hes 25 now, and Im 22). He’s been having financial problems, issues at home and wanting to move out. And he is unsure of what direction he wants to go with the Music. Being a musician he also has quite a few friends who are girls, and he talks with them pretty regularly. I am not the jealous type, but sometimes I wonder if what we have is special compared to what his friendships with them are like. It seems like it is. But I second guess myself alot. Any help would be helpful. I apologize for this being so long, It’s been something that has really been bothering me lately.

    Thanks Alan!

  • MizShadows August 15, 2011

    ok here’s something short and simple i wanted to ask.

    i went to see my guy crush band perform.
    next day i messaged him saying it was a great show.
    his first sentence response was “i looked at you quite a bunch”.
    now i must ask, is he trying to give me a hint that he was checking me out? bc that sentence seemed pretty flirty.. not that i mind! lol

    thanks! 🙂

  • blue dolphin August 22, 2011

    Hello.. I recently met a Pisces guy and I have some doubt on whether he likes me or not… I’ve met him on a Friday night and the following morning he texted me and I texted him back, then he didn’t text me back until like 12 hours later and asked me where I would be when I go out that night and he would come by and see me. The thing is, when he came by we didn’t even talk and I was a bit drunk and gave him so rude attitude. He texted me again in the morning and said hopefully he and I will at least talk next time.. but never asked me out… I responded and said I had no problem talking, then this guy waited for another 10 hours to send me a text at night and asked me how I was feeling cuz I said I was a bit sick on my facebook status… So what does it mean? is he interested in me or not? I’m a little bit confused… 🙁

  • MsScorp September 12, 2011

    Hi i have been reading these posts and kinda hope you cAn help me out eventhough i Am afraid to hear the truth. I have known this pisces guy for about 2 yrs now. As of now i feel so much love for him but it did not start out that way. I met him through a friend of his that i met on a social network site we only met briefly, and soon after he IM me through aim ( which i believe he gOt from the same site, i didnt remember him at first. ) he asks me what college i go to and says hes seen me on campus.. Turned out we were gOing to the same school and then one day my car broke down in the middle of the night, i was stranded and he came to get me after seeing my status on aim. For months we talked txt all the time flirting and spending time together. But he never wanted his friend i first met to ever know to avoid conflict. At that time it was a morE of a friend thing and 6months of friendship i end up moving to a statE away with this guy i was dating in summer of 10. During that time we kept in contact and i truly fell in love with him first as a friend then as a lover. I felt we connected perfectly. I told him everything about me the good and the bad, he said numerous times he loved me and feels like i am the girl he would marry i mean i always had his attention. He would listen to All my probs and give me the best advice, he even added me on fb and posted a pic of us and told friends i was his future wife etc. We were very open to eachother as well about his relations with other girls and when he would meet with his ex. I recently moved back to my home state in april after seeing him last in september. But a few weeks before i moved back ( he had been ignoring his ex for a month) and she texts him that shes pregnant. He asks if i believe her and he sounded so upset about the whole situation he eventually found out thAt she was 6 months pregnant. From there his attitude towards the changed he would tAlk to me less sometimes Go Ehole dAy. When i got back to cali in april he had already somewhat was speaking to me less, then out the blue i would hear from him telling me how much he misses me and would talk all night. He finally made the 1 1/2 drive to come see me a day before his baby shower and stayed the whole night. The next day he txts me briefly then no phone calls the whole week! When he came down we discussed being together and said i should have never shut him down when a couple weeks before he came he text if i was going to be his girlfriend nownif not were gonna stay frds forever. It was so out the blue like one day im your girl the next im not. I told him i didnt know it seems like he had alot on his plate and he jus said ok. When i tell him i do after he says its to late. He had been telling after seeing me he doesnt want to b wit his ex and when he joins the navy he wants me to come with him and marry him , the next day his child was born and everything changed. He basically said that hes taking his ex, and he jus decided he was going to be with her. He has known her for 3 yrs and been split for one and his ex has been doing everything to win him back . I felt so betrayed. I never loved so hard. I wanted answers but he would barley return my calls or txts. And when we got into our first argument he said he would delete me off fb and change his phone number that night if i didnt want to be his friend .. I told him i didnt give a f**ck and he deleted me. So i added the friend i met him through and he was eagered to catchup , he knew nothing of our relationship and through catchinh up i made a joke sayin what if a girl had a kid by u and u didnt know until he was born. This opened Pandoras box! He was this actually happened to a frd of mines he didnt know his gf was preg for 6 months cuz he had been ignoring her. I felt better knowing it was the truth but awful because how he explained let me kno she wasnt jus an ex they had prob still been dating. Ok so i stopped txting him callin being distraught finally gOt the hint and when i did that. He just started sending me txt msgs about how he wants to come c me and he missss me etc this has been the past month. But i giv him no meaning ful respose. Then just a week ago he sends me a frd request back on fb. ( i knew he would) And tried to jokingly comment on my status . and the other day he wants to txt me out the blue wanting to kno wat im doing where i was how i been.. I asked how he has been he says bad i tried to commit suiced cuz he misses me so so much. Which was upsetting me not because of the joke but because it seems like he should already kno hOw bad he has hurt me y set it up to break my heart again. I had no response. Last night he messages me on fb which was another shocker to me saying that he really misses me and wants to come c me this weekend. I told him it sounded good hoping he would get the picture of me blowing him off but he wouldnt stop msging me. I dont want to give him the satisfaction of having me for me being in his presence, i dont want to get hurt again. I love him so much i he knew but he cant see. I cannot get him out of my head i know it is the best thing to do but i guess i just want the truth and closure for me to really do that. I feel so helpless i want to move on And have been and he comes back into my life for what? I just want some insight if we can ever have a relationship or not . Or if he just misses the attention from me. I have been searcging myself long and hard wondering if he is worth the wait. Please help me.. I know its alot. I am in so much pain and i wish he never came bak into my life i only added him because i felt i cant keep running from the problem and ignore him. I wanted him to c i was better than all of that

  • Ineedsomeanswers September 14, 2011

    Could you please email me I have a couple of questions I need answered. Please.

  • sagGirl September 21, 2011

    Hey Allan, I love this site and I think it’s really great that you are helping people with Pisces! I was wondering if you could help me?! I’m not really good at explaining stuff but I’ll give it my best try! So, there is this Pisces whom I have known for maybe a year and a half. We know each other through work. At the beginning I was really cold to him, and we had this thing where we would just stare into each other’s eyes(It’s amazing the feeling you get) and he’d smile, and we’d give each other smart remarks. (playful arguing) Than, I’d always end up catching him looking at me when I’m not, and he was just different around me then he was with everyone else. Over time, He started making it really obvious that he was trying to get to me by making me mad, ignoring me and trying to make me jealous. So I know I probably shouldn’t have done this but I did it back. So, some days would be intense gazes and major flirting, other days would be trying to start a conversation and be friendly, and other times he would just ignore me. Recently, for maybe a couple months now we no longer are flirting a lot but he suggested that I should come swing by his office.(he still sometimes just stares into my eyes a lot but not in a lusty but genuine way and I still catch him looking when I’m not) I don’t go every day, but I have been going. The time I spent in his office kept getting longer and longer. The thing that sucks is when I’m trying to be friendly to him I sound nervous and stutter, and different things like that. Sometimes when walking by me, he’ll stop talking to someone else and without even looking up says hi to me. Other times he just completely ignores me. What bothers me is that the last time I was in his office like 2 days ago he asked me a question, and I started to answer than someone else came in and started talking to him. He then completely ignored me. So I just stood there and smiled waiting for him to acknowledge me again but he got up from his desk continued to talk to the other person ignoring me so I left and I haven’t been back since.(well, for 2 days) lol. Today, he walked by the room I was in with a bunch of people looking directly at me.(like he was checking up on me) There’s a lot more that I just can’t explain but he keeps flip flopping on me. For a while he will just try to talk to me normally, I just get this feeling from him when he’s looking at me that sometimes he likes me back, but I’m not sure. Of course you amazing Pisces people always know when someone likes you. I’m sorry for writing so much, but I guess what I’m trying to say is he gets close to me then he goes and ignores me and he just changes it around all the time. Thank you for taking the time to read all of this stuff I wrote! Why do you think he gets close to me than ignores me? Do you think he likes me? Should I go back? What should I do? What do you think about this whole situation. Thank you so much for answering!!!!

  • sagGirl September 22, 2011

    Oh, sorry I spelled your name wrong Alan. 🙂 And just to add, it wasn’t all just trying to make each other mad and arguing..sometimes he can be really kind and sweet to me. I’m sorry it’s not a lot of detail!

  • Cait October 3, 2011

    Hi Alan,

    Quick question. I’ve known a Pisces man now for almost five months. Extremely flirtatious from the get-go (generally at its most heavy under the influence of a little alcohol) on both our ends. We’re from the same state, but we got separated due to grad school. Our Skype conversations last anywhere from two to six hours, and I was feeling extremely confident. He lets me read his writing (I let him read mine), we discuss art and life choices, etc.

    However, last week, I made a joke about having a lunch date with someone else (which was not was happened — big misunderstanding) and even though Pisces acted fine, the next five days were impossible to get him on the phone, e-mail, etc. I felt terrible. I cleared the air, explained it was a joke, and tried my best to explain it away without letting him know I knew what was wrong (if that makes any sense.) He e-mailed a few days later to say, “He saw these links and thought of me,” and we had a Skype chat that lasted 3.5 hours soon after… except it was like we were right back at the beginning., the “Hi, nice to meet you” phase. Only towards the end did things loosen up, and we talked about things other than our careers as students in the same field. My question would be… how badly did I mess up? I feel like things are getting a little better… but I still get the sense that I’m a bit blackballed. Or at least have more work to do. My biggest fear is that I’ll come on “too strong” in trying to fix it and chase my little fish away. How can a dumb Leo woman fix this situation??

  • sagGirl October 4, 2011

    Hi again! Since i posted a while ago i guess i’ll update you now that i did go back and we are talking normally…and i can tell he’s trying to start more and more conversations and stuff im getting positive vibes from him, and sometimes it’s like he still likes me. I can’t make any kind of move on him now because he is taken. lately he has been smiling a lot at me. I don’t know if that means anything…so how do i know if he likes me? thanks so much!

  • Alan October 9, 2011


    It sounds like you did all the analyzing already such as seeing if he was making you mad to get you to like him and all. Assuming that is true, then usually I would say the getting close and then ignoring you tactic is precaution not to put all your marbles in one basket for fear you will lose it all if it doesn’t work out.

    Do I think he likes you? To a certain extent he must enjoy your company to even respond back to you. I suppose it is a little tricky to really test out since you did say that he is “taken.” The only semi safe way I think to determine his intentions I say is to evaluate the type of conversations he initiates with you. For example, if he takes initiative to talk about life values and philosophy usually that is a good indication that the person is trying to evaluate you for something more. This is as opposed to talking about like a funny clip you saw online.

    That would be what I would look out for without crossing any lines due to the situation.

  • Alan October 9, 2011


    From what I read I would say it’s not as bad as you think. If it was that bad he wouldn’t even talk to you period I would say. Even the fact that he took initiative to reconnect with you demonstrates that. Saying that he saw some links and thought of you though would say to me he is a little afraid to express himself emotionally to you at the moment for fear that you will not show the same in return. Basically, fear of rejection in a way as I would imagine before in his mind he saw great things with you and took it seriously and then out of nowhere from his end it’s like to you it didn’t mean the same.

    So it would seem that he still sees potential but it’s up to you now to show by action that you do care that he means something more to you. An example is you mentioned that you two skyped. If you normally only did voice chat for example then suggesting that you wanted to video chat to be able to say watch a movie together can be an example of you showing initiative. Then afterwards you can tell if he is comfortable again as he will start to throw suggestions.

    Thanks Alan 🙂 I’m glad you replied! I’ve been really enjoying the things you post on this site 🙂

  • Cancergirl October 11, 2011

    Hello Alan, I’ve been reading all your posts and I am quite impressed with the advice you give. Not only do you give great advice, but you also take the time to answer everyone. That is very kind of you. I have been dating this Pisces man for about 8-9 months, however, we have not had sex or anything like that because of his current situation. He is married, but very unhappy and unfulfilled. He gives me a lof of attention and really took the time to get to know me as a person. There is a 15 year age gap (me being younger) I filled a void in his life (emotionally) and we got very close. He was “obsessed” with me and put me on a pedestal. He gave me chocolate for Valentines Day and and e-card teddy bear hug and also took me out during the days several times. On my birthday he gave me money so I could buy myself something nice. Keep in mind that I always give him his space and never ask him personal questions as I am aware he is in a very delicate situation. I life my life and go out and have fun with my girls and he knows this. He is very attracted to me as he refers to me as “his dream woman” and that he should have been married to me. We are both extremely sexual to no end. We have such chemistry. He constantly tells me that he wants to do things the “right” way – as if we do things right, things will end up right – meaning he wants to take things slow and doesnt want me to be considered as a homewrecker – thats why we havent gone out at night – but during the day – we had 3 dates in one day! He said he wants to be with me but waiting for the right time. Thats how much we love spending time together. Lately things have slowed down quite a bit and he hasnt communicated anything to me. Our conversations have been based on purely sex. I got offended so I moved on and am considering giving me ex boyfriend another chance. I recently told Mr. Pisces about this and he told me I should not go back to him and that Im too good for my ex – and pisces and I havent spoken much since then. He hasnt communicated how he feels about this. I can’t fit our “story” on this post, so this is the gist of it. I have no idea what he feels and I wish I did. Could you please shed some light? Thank you Alan. If you need more info, please let me know.

  • Cancergirl October 11, 2011

    further to above email, i do not chase him. I never did and never will. I am sure he doesnt know exactly how i feel. Maybe he senses a little bit, but because of his situation, i never felt that I could open up to him. I have to feel totally safe in order to do that. I show myself to be stronger than I think i am. I know i am strong, however, I have a very tough shell thats extremely tough to break. Because of this, people do not know where they really stand with me. However, I show a lot by my actions – i am super sweet and kind and helpful. No one can fully read me because of my shell. But I am a tough cookie. Thought this might help. Thanks Alan. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

  • Determinedmummy October 13, 2011

    So I’m a Libra lady very much in amour with a Pisces man. We have had a rough start to say the least. We met at work, then he got fired by a board of 12 people, our last week at work was horrible, very teary and dramatic. On the last day a Friday, worst day of my life to date, he left and I got a text that went “don’t contact me again, you have problems I can’t help you with” I was like, WTF. The only problem we had he didn’t communicate.

    I let 3 weeks pass, sent him a card to apologising if I made his last week at work harder than it should have been. No response.

    He called into our office, I was relieving the front desk, I almost fell over because it’s been now 11 weeks with no contact, he couldn’t look at me at all.

    Should I assume that I should let my heart heal and move on, or should I give this guy more time or is he done. I know I’m not. But I’m not going to beg to get his attention.

    Any advise?

    I have known this Piscean guy for a while now, and he just . . .confuses me. We started as friends, but I always feel like he wants more, being a very intuitive person. He has been showing a lot of attention to me, offer to help me even with the tiniest thing, smile A LOT whenever he sees me and during our conversation etc. I started to like him back too, because he is such a sweetheart. We were good friends for a while as no one confessed anything, so to break the ice, I confessed. Before I went on a business trip for 2 weeks, I wrote him a letter, saying that I have feelings for him, and told him it’s fine if he doesnt like me, we could continue to be friends. He wrote back to me, saying he’s looking forward to see me, but didnt mention anything about the whole me-liking-him thing. I was a little hurt, but when I got back, he shows me even more attention than before. He always worries that i’m mad at him, or tired, he freaked out when I saw him talked to another girl on a night that we are supposed to meet and send me a letter to explain things, and there seems to be even more adoration in the way he looks at me now, compare to before I confess. But whenever I try to spend time with him, he always seem so distant. He could run to me one night when I say let’s talk, but could be very distant and cold the next day. One time we were supposed to meet, but then he showed up with another girl, who I know for sure likes him. I felt that he was … scared of me misunderstanding this, so he remained quiet most of the time when I was there. But again, I feel like I cannot trust my inner instinct when it comes to him, as I like him now, so I have a reason to be biased. You know, when you like someone, you are likely to fool yourself in to thinking that they like you back, too. And i dont want to lead myself on. My instinct has been working great so far, but… I really dont know if i can trust it this time.

    I’m so very confused right now whether he is doing this because he likes me and just too shy to make the first move, or because he is just trying to be nice and friendly to me because he thought he might hurt me for rejecting me. I dont know what I should do now, he is so hot and cold, and that confuses me a lot…I dont mind making the first move again, but i just dont know if he likes me, or just want to be friends…

    You were spot on. Thanks so much for the help. I put myself out there a little more (not something I’m keen to do thanks to Venus in Libra) and things turned around for the better. We are right back where we were and steadily rising.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Alan,

    Just wanted to update that last week he started up with me again full force attraction. He’s saying that he’s getting turned on by me more and more everyday – and that one of these days, he wants to get physical. He also got offended yesterday because during our talks, I jokingly called him a loser in response for him saying something playful to me and he really got offended. He says at least now he knows what I really think of him. He was stuck on that for a little bit, but I quickly made him feel better and we put it behind us. His attraction is growing and he’s coming at me harder. What should I do? What is he thinking?

  • Alan October 18, 2011


    I guess my first reaction is just in a general sense as I know everyone is different and has different standards. But to me the guy is married you mentioned and at the same time is trying to get seriously emotionally involved with you as well. Would that be okay with you if it was a situation where you were his wife and he was then doing that with another women? Because odds are I say he would do that to you as well.

    My personal opinion based on what you wrote is that he is keeping you as an option. Basically, if his marriage goes down the gutter for whatever reason then he can go to you. It’s kind of like a setup where it is played in a such a way where he wants you to be committed in terms of being there as his option in life without him having to in return. So don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from him for weeks as things could be going well for him with his wife and then when he feels like going to you everything will be like fireworks again.

    What further leads me to believe this is how you mentioned he specifically told you to not go back to your ex as you are too good for him. In my mind, this is contradicting as if he thinks that you and him are right as a couple then shouldn’t he just instantly end it with his wife? As well, it should make you think as if he truly believes that you two are meant to be then wouldn’t he say something instead such as “No, I am your man…stay with me” type of thing?

    If I was to really push it and for some reason I was in that situation where I had your best interest in mind, to be fair I would say if you feel that going to your ex is what you want then I won’t stop you as it is only fair that I shouldn’t hold you up in life if I am still in a relationship. Because I would say a person with my personality in those situations who are genuine would most likely approach it where they would leave it semi open ended and then hope you take initiative to go back to them. So in my opinion, him saying stuff like he wants to do things right, which by that I am guessing he means like divorce his current wife first, is just an excuse.

    To me, it just sounds like he wants something from you and is just trying to play with your head to cover his true intentions.

  • Alan October 18, 2011


    I don’t quite understand what exactly the disputes between you two were and why he all of a sudden would say that you have problems that he can’t help you with. It’s hard to analyze the situation because of that.

    But generally speaking in a very broad way, if you were say continually nagging him and then he gave you that you have issues and don’t contact him response then I would say it is almost safe to say he has written you off in his life. Though the other way around is if you are saying that text came out of nowhere for no apparent reason then the text could be interpreted that he is just super frustrated in life and feels that you can’t help him with it. So that would be just more of an indirect way to say he needs help.

  • Alan October 18, 2011


    It sounds like he wants to be closer with you just based on what you wrote but doesn’t really know what to do or what is the “right” way to approach things. Your letter example partially gives me that impression since you said you confessed to him and that he wrote back but didn’t reciprocate on paper on what you hoped for in return. Funny thing is I would say many times if the person has no interest in you and is super shy they would just play dumb and pretend they never even got the letter.

    I’m inclined to say like with the example of him bringing the girl it’s a situation of he didn’t want to be mean and reject her where at the same time he doesn’t really know what to do with you and what it all means. A blunt way in these scenarios to find out if he likes you in a close way is to find some kind of activity that requires you to be next to each other physically. By that I mean something as simple as a movie theatre where you have to be next to each other by default.

    Something like a bench wouldn’t work because they have an option to be far apart and so they will most likely take that route if they like you but are shy. The movie theatre seat example helps to ease up the situation because they don’t have to feel stupid or self conscience in thinking of a way to win you over to be next to them, if that makes sense. From there you can gauge the basic body language and such.

  • braveAsh October 18, 2011


    Thank you for your response… As for trying to be one on one with him, I have done that many times, and here’s what I got : We never went to the movie together, but whenever we are alone together, he would always sit so that we would face me directly, he smiles a lot, teases me a lot and would listen to every little detail I said ( I know this because he would bring up things I said long times ago). He seems to want to know more about the things I like, and would always offer to help even with the smallest thing. I could feel that he’s into me, but he has never said so, and that confuses me a lot. When we are together with his friends or mine, he is acting a lot different. When he’s alone with me, he talks less, and listens more, and sometimes his face turn red if I give him a compliment. The way he looks at me is so sweet, gentle and warm… But when he is around other people, he’s extra hilarious, talks more and seems more social. With me, he’s just . . . shy. We had 2-3 hours conversation before until midnight or even later… So, there are signals that I caught that lead me into thinking he likes me, but I might be reading too much into this while he’s just being nice and friendly to me.

    And as for the situation now, I have decided to ask him one more time. One night, I had the chance to meet him, so I let him know i’m confused with the way he is treating me, and tell him that it’s ok if he doesn’t like me, we could be friends. I also told him that his actions let me on, and if he doesnt like me, he shouldn’t be doing this. I also asked how he feels about me, and whether he likes me or not, but he hasn’t responded to me yet ( he had to leave before I had the chance to ask that question in person, so I sent him an email that same night). I really tried everything I could with this guy, and although I really like him; if he still can’t give me an answer like this, I think it would be better for me to stop. Do you think I did the right thing ? I’m worried things might never be the same again, as I feel that he might distance himself from me now…

    Best regards,

  • cancergirl October 19, 2011

    Oh wow Alan, great insight and I am so thankful that you decided to write a response to help clarify things. You make sense and what you said has always been in the back of my mind. I would like to say that I gave you a very very short summary. All summer he was very concerned that he was taking me away from my life. He would mention that although he wants to be with me, he is waiting for the right time and he didnt feel right to keep me waiting. Oh beleive me, he has said those things. He doesnt want me to go back to my ex because of the way he treated me in the past. I told Mr. Pisces everything. However, my ex has been in therapy for the last year and is doing really well and we have been talking as friends, so a reconcilliation is very possible. Had it been any other guy, i dont think Mr. Pisces would tell me not to approach him. I see him saying that I should do what makes me happy. The thing about this man is that he is so very compassionate and sweet and our chemistry is off the wall. He says that our chemistry is like an electric, sensual energy between us. He is not a bad person. But now im starting to think that maybe he is selfish, but I am not seeing it because of our chemistry. He has never cheated on his wife prior to his emotional affair with me – we just gradually gravitated towards one another. Alan, I am impressed with the advice you give. You are truly gifted. Any girl would be lucky to have you, beleive me – you are emotionally intelligent. I love it!!!! Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions. Does this info change anything in terms of him having my best interests at heart?

  • cancergirl October 19, 2011

    Also Alan, based on what you said about him wanting something from me but playing with my head to cover his true intentions, what things could he possibly want from me and is he doing this in a devious way? On purpose? I never ask him to leave and i am understanding of his situation – so i dont push it, nor do i disclose myself and my feelings for him. I keep that hidden. Just kind words is what i give him. Would you think he just wants to have sex with me when he feels the time is right and is comfortable enough mentally do take it to that level with me? Please help I would really like to get ur perspective on exactly what he may want from me.


  • Alan October 30, 2011


    Speaking for myself, in situations like that what would be going on through my head is a sort of “I know where this is going” type of thought. Essentially, I get the hint that you are trying to pursue things closer but I wouldn’t want to say it to you. I would say if his frame of mind is the same then it’s simply a matter of knowing if you are “the one” that the person seriously wants to commit to or take in a serious relationship way. That means a lot of analyzing in seeing how you react. Kind of like wanting to take pictures of a subject to get natural expressions and not something that is posed. In the end, it’s seeing how he fits into your life and how you would fit in his.

    With that in mind too, I would say just outright asking how he feels about you in that way is very intimidating and can potentially scare him off depending on what stage he is at. I know it could for me for example. Reason being is from my point of view I wouldn’t feel safe anymore in being able to naturally judge your personality as it feels like you are forcing me to make a decision that I don’t even know the answer to myself yet.

    It might sound annoying, but it’s one of those things where the best approach I say is to just enjoy the person’s company and allow them to see who you are in every scenario. Then hopefully one day he will see a major need/obstacle that you have in life where he can easily picture himself being the perfect guy for you and vice versa. It’s those moments where we want to be so certain that on the day like say a nice moonlight walk we will kiss you. Yes, very fairy tale like I guess you can say. But that goes back to like the example of the movie theatre scenario where they are forced next to you type of thing as if they are ready they will take the next step. Could even be as simple as they will hold your hand, touch your shoulders, etc.

    As I usually say, if they are openly talking to you and asking questions to learn more about you then you are doing something right that they like.

  • Alan October 30, 2011


    For me, my initial thoughts still holds true. In terms of what he wants, of course I am not him so I can’t speak for him. But generally speaking it does sound like he is mainly looking for say physical intimacy or just the thrill you give him that he is getting involved with another women emotionally. He just can’t pursue it fully otherwise he will look bad.

    It’s a little tricky as you mentioned that you are giving him a lot of leeway room to take his time and you are not pressuring him in any way. For example sake let’s pretend we know for a fact that it is simply sex he is after. You wouldn’t have to tell him your feelings directly for him to know if he has a chance to get you in bed, so to speak. Just you talking back and communicating with him is a motivator for him to keep going and trying to woo you for as long as he can.

    Since you don’t want to imply to him that he should leave his wife first for example the only other decent way I feel to discover what he is after is to just be semi stone cold when it comes to any topics that revolve around an intimate relationship between you and himself. That is assuming of course you agree with the notion that one person shouldn’t be doing things like that with another person if they are currently attached to another.

    Cause like with that, if it is sex he is after then a common scenario would be he will start to try and make more time to be around you or say shower you with more gifts as he is like trying to lure you in. Whereas if he is more genuine about a relationship then usually the other scenario would be he would actually talk about plans on what he is doing to actually make things official to be with you. Those are pretty general examples, but hopefully you understand the point in terms of the different approaches one would use to see what side of the fence they are on.

  • Rachel November 6, 2011

    Hi Alan, you are a complete and utter tool. How fortunate for you that you feel you gave that lady all the necessary signals. I find your assumptions upon her supposed self-doubt etc thoroughly infuriating. Did it ever cross your mind that she might not have taken that final leap of sealing the deal because she wanted you to meet her half way rather than feeling that she had done all the work?? Call me old fashioned but would it ever cross your mind that as a female, perhaps she didn’t feel like it was her place to do the asking? Perhaps she didn’t want to ask you out because she didn’t want to insult your manhood or perhaps whilst she may or may not have low self-esteem (I’m assuming you aren’t a psychiatrist moonlighting in a computer shop) she wanted to go on a date with you knowing for sure that you wanted to be there!! I think she had a lucky escape on the basis that you obviously take a more observational rather than active role in life and you would have sent her off her rocker with your constant manipulating and analysing of situations. Or maybe she didn’t finally ask you out due to realising you were a tosser because she’s more intelligent than you give her credit for! It seems to me to be your loss anyway and hopefully while your posting crap about your non-existent love life on the net she’s tucked up in bed with someone who knows how to treat a lady. She sounds pretty sweet and if she had such difficulty asking you out then that may have served you well if you’d ended up in a relationship with her as you would have been more likely to trust her. Point for future reference: women like to feel wanted and dominated (to an extent) perhaps as you didn’t make her feel wanted by asking her out; she didn’t ask you out because she sensed you weren’t capable of wearing the trousers in the relationship like a real man. Amen to the expression ‘women are from Venus, men are from Mars.’

  • Rachel November 6, 2011

    So then I went back up to the top to read other people’s comments.. Whilst I stand by what I said above in relation to your own situation.. I would also like to say thank you for the replies you have given to these women regarding their situations. You have put in a lot of time and effort into helping these people with their relationship (piscean) issues and you have given them sound advice. so once again.. thank you and keep up the good work.

  • cancergirl November 7, 2011

    Thank you Alan. I really appreciate your feedback. Since I feel the way you feel about the situation, I am going to distance myself. I feel this is best for everybody involved. God will bring me to my path and since their are so many roadblocks with this situation, then clearly it is not my path.

    Again, many thanks for taking your time to respond to my inquiries. I cant tell you how much I appreciate it.

    All the best and God Bless


  • Peach December 12, 2011

    You seem to have a natural psychological ability to help people out and I would love to ask you about a Pisces guy I’ve just recently met 🙂

    We met online almost 6 months ago. We had an immediate great connection (as much of one you could have over the Internet ha)
    So we chatted through skype for a couple months we web cam chatted once or twice for not long like 10 mins. He was usually always making the initiative to message me. He’s sweet and funny and gives me compliments 🙂 but throughout our conversations there are times where he was trying to contact me once or twice on skype and I would be super busy and not get back to him for a month, month and a half. Didn’t seem to bother him to much. He then gave me his number once or twice and Facebook info. I never stored it because I didn’t think I knew that much about him and I’m just taking precautions. Eventually I answered him and toon his info and Facebook and checked it out which made me more interested in him. He is a tattoo/grafitti artist. Great at what he does. He invited me to a tattoo convention. I told him I’d try and make it. Never did make it over. Another time we talked he mentioned when are we going to hang out or when I’m going to let him tattoo me. Stuff like that. Totally seemed interested.

    So it finally happened like this… He posts on his Facebook that he needs someone to help him with a project that he will pay the person. I didn’t think much of it. 2 days later we are chatting and I ask him if he found someone to help him out. He says no so I told him I’d do it. Not for money though but for exchange for a tattoo. He thought that was a great idea. Since the tattoo was an expensive piece he told me he would cover all the other costs and that I just need to pay the shop, $80.

    We agreed to meet up after he got out of work at 9 and get started. Once I met him in person I though he was super hot! Totally attracted to him. I felt like he felt the same but he played it so cool calm and collected it was great. Me being a Scorpio I did the same, played it cool that is. Really on the inside I was melting with admiration <3. So we start this art project together didn't take long except we couldn't finish until paint kinda dried up so we had a good amount of time to kill. He invites me in which I actually felt safe around him so I go into his house. We end up playing cod on his xbox and watching tv shows. Had a good relaxing fun time with him. He even pulled out his little George foreman grill and made me a awesome grilled cheese with turkey (he tried) lol too cute :). I ended up hanging with him until like 4am he didn't want me to leave. Btw after a while he had these romantic candles going and great lighting and music and such. Which was all the better reason I sat on the other couch the whole time haha anyways so I get up to leave and he tries to give me $80 I told him that we agreed on a tattoo not money. He insisted I take the money to pay the shop with. I thought that was nice of him. This was all on a monday. So I made a appt with him that Friday to start the tattoo….

    Friday comes along and im driving to the tattoo shop and I'm subconsciously super nervous! Nervous enough to miss the exit and have to text him that I'm going to be late (ahhhh!) I get there and he's
    waiting for me looking super cute. Glad he didn't mind I was late. So he gets started and there's others around working and talking and I'm all being shy not talking much. If I do say anything it's to him. He put music on the whole time. Not much talking. He tattooed me for 3 hrs! And I still have to come in for another session. I was hoping that he
    would ask me to hang out after. I heard him talking to one of his co-workers about how he's going to go out for a drink after he's done. He didn't invite me. I was a little bummed cause I wanted to hang out with him but I'm patient so it's ok…. For now that is ha.

    After that he didn't really follow up on trying to get together again or text me or Facebook me :/. It's been two weeks and I texted him a week ago. Took him like 4 days to answer me back. He apologized and said my text got lost in the art Basel madness (art Basel is a huge once a year art show in Miami). After that I took the initiative again (which was what he used to do) and texted him again talking about some art piece I was doing that he asked me about a while ago before we met. It was a ok conversation. He also did acknowledge some posts of mine on Facebook. But I feel he should be following up? Like a text here and there? I don't know in a week I have to reschedule an appt with him to finish my tattoo and I'm nervous. I don't know if it's him or if I should just be more patient. I already initiated a conversation twice I wouldn't feel right about trying again. I mean I thought about asking him if he wanted to hang again? Or should I just leave that to him?
    Thanks for reading

    After that he didn't really follow up on trying to text, Facebook, skype me like he usual did before. Don't get me wrong it's not like he was constantly messaging me but it's been over two weeks and I initiated text messages with him, telling him

  • broken but fixable libra December 21, 2011

    🙄 will never date another one of the fishes again was with one for 4 years (all which most was good i will admit) and the way he ended was the most scarred ive every have been OR will ever be again (i wish he would of just cheated or something normal that would of hurt less and not be the weirdest bizarre break up he made!). Ironically since the break up iv gotten hit on by several Pisces all reminding me of my ex! i run fast every time. I moved and changed my number and emails just so i didn’t have to play the mind games. I avoid all that with a quick change in everything. A girl got to keep her sanity you know 😀 You know us Libra girls cant keep us down long and i have learn yes i still love him but i can do that from afar while keeping my dignity and no contact. At this point in my life i think ill just date and be single im 26 so i think i have plenty of time to find Mr right later on but i thought he was my soul mate so it scare to think what going to happen if i do again 😕

  • AquariousGirl January 7, 2012

    Hi Alan, I’ve been talking to this Pisces man for about 2 months now. I really like him, for the simple fact of his easy going personality.. Now, mind you we’ve never met in person, and we’ve been having some very interesting conversations ;)… Now, he’s starting to become alot more open with his feelings about me. But I’m a bit baffled on how he words things like “you make me feel so happy. No ones ever made me feel as happy as you have” or now he’s saying “I’m falling for you” and “I’m definitely falling for you” what does this mean? Now I’m trying not to read too deep into it, but I’m really baffled?

    Help lol… Please

  • Sarah February 25, 2012

    There’s this pisces guy that goes to college with me (I am also a pisces) and he was in one of my classes. One day near the end of the quarter, he asked if me and him could study together. Most of the time he told me last minute, where I was in another town (an hour away) and we never got to study then. But finals came up and he asked again, so I said yes. He met up with me and we studied some, got distracted every now and again by talking about what we like and what not, but an hour or two later he asked if I wanted to go help him move into his new door room, b/c he had this fridge he wanted to move in. So I went with him in his truck. He asked if i could hold open the door for him so i did and we reached his room where he tided up. I also found out more about him and that we liked the same music and that he also liked to read. He made a joke about his couch he got from his friend but he sat down right in front of his desk. I sat down right next to him. He asked me if i liked it and i said i did but made a joke that it looked like a sea captain’s desk and he laughed. I opened one of the drawers and found some books of his. One was a gentlemen’s book I asked him about it and he said someone gave it to him and I decided to open it up and read. I made a few jokes every now and again, which he laughed at. (At this time we were still sitting together on the couch). Then his friends came bursting through the door and then it broke whatever mood we had. Later, we decided to go back to studying. Since the campus library closed, I offered to study at my apt. He agreed. He took me to my car (which he said he wanted to drive) and followed me back to my apt. We studied in a spare room and listen to indie music which i liked (and he did also) so we listened to his music. It was pretty calm between us (confortable even though we knew very little of each other). Sometimes when i would look at him (right in the eyes) he would match mine and it seemed like we understood each other even if we were the silent, but strong type. Then one time he laid down on the floor beside me, not to close but enough, and said i smelled really good or he thought it was me. It was me and i offered for him to smell my shirt because i had perfume from before and he agreed it was me. Later that night around two, we took a smoke break and i offered him a beer and he thanked me for it. But before he left, he did give me a hug. The following day, he mentioned he was hungry before class so i offered that we should go to lunch. We did (with another friend from our class) and i was the last to sit which he offered by scooting over so i could sit. But then, he left after ten minutes, but right before he took off he asked if i was gonna back home and i told him yes. He then asked me when i was going to come back and i told him sunday. He replied that he will see me then. Not sure what that meant, but he seems to be like me. Quiet yet outspoken. But he’s indecisive and i am not (well sometimes) but i know what i want. He’s very cute and mention his ex a couple of times then some girls he knew. It irritated me but i never said anything but positive things or nothing at all. Not sure what he meant by bringing them up either. But i thought our study date went pretty well, but other than that i don’t know what to do about him. I think he’s attractive, but i’m not sure he thinks the same about me. I’m actually pretty but not super skinny like his ex but build athletically. please help.

  • De'Leo April 3, 2012

    Ive met this Pisces man in October at a wedding. He was one of the groomsmen, snd i was a bridesmaid. We had an amazing time together and he asked to exchange numbers. He texted me the next day and we went out to eat to talk. We talked for a few days and he seemed to like me. But i heard from a friend that he wasnt interested in me because he likes a girl who is more hard to get. It hurted my feelings, and also made me confused cause he still tried talking to me and also asked me out on a date. He still seemed like he liked me, but in the back of my head, i can hear what my friend told me. I confronted him about how i felt, he denied it all and told me that im a great kind hearted person and that he really meant it. We stopped talking for 2 months until i finally texted him to just say happy birthday. 2 days later, he texted me asking to see me again , so i went ivrr to visit, and had a great conversation. We saw each other again a couple more times. And everything seemed fine, but now hes ignoring my texts. Whats that all about? Im confused if he even likes me or not…

  • Leogirl April 6, 2012

    hey, alan i just started talk with this pices man who is 4 year older then me and it all started…
    my Aries friend had taken responsibility for finding her best friend (pisces) a girlfriend so me and her were hanginng out and she texted him telling him a little bit about me and i didn’t know that she did this. We then thought about prank calling him (just for fun) and him being a smart pisces caught it that it was me. After that the weird thing he did is sent her a few pic of himself so she could show them to me even when he don’t even know me or seen me (we have never met). maybe he was joking around with her and acting to be sad but my friend started over reacting that we hurt his feeling by prank calling him and when i couldn’t take it anymore i called him from my phone to say sorry, we couldn’t call from her phone because it was her sisters phone, and this way he got my number and just so you know this all happen in one day. the next day he started texting me and flirting and i even told him that i don’t want a relationship right now and i told my friend to call him and talk with him and tell him to just be friends with me, i told her to do it because i didn’t want to hurt him. but she didn’t do that because she said that he would think i’m jealous. and she gets really quiet when i talk about the way he is flirting as if she is jealous i even asked him if he likes her and he kept say no we are buddies. i never text him first he does and he never texts more then once. once i was sad and i said i will talk to him later and then right after he texted say i like talking to you, what’s wrong, etc and i meant to say it nicely but when u text someone u don’t know they think it was mean but only you know that you where being nice so i said to him nothing is wrong so there is nothing to tell and all he said is ok and for a week he didn’t text back. then i started talking to him on april fools because that same friend wanted to fool him. he did reply and we talked again but then he started asking for my pic again and i said no try imagining how i look like and he said no i don’t want to forget it. i thought i should talk with him a clear things out, i texted saying “i have to talk to u i will call u” but i didn’t because my other friend (Scorpio)said that they both are using u and u should test to see if he calls u or texts u more then 3 times and he call once and texted once after that no text. and when we talk we talk for hours and he says really sweet things, is he using me to make my friend jealous? he had a gf who used him, is he hurt because of that? or does he not want to seem desperate? he also said that he saw a pic of me and i look like his ex but then said no he didn’t see a pic, what does that mean?? what should i do?? plzz help thank u

    Hi Alan,
    Its really wonderful of you to share Pisces male perspective with regards to BGR. I too am a taurus lady and seems that from the postings as above, pisces guys do drive taurus ladies nuts.

    I met him when I dropped at his hair salon for the first time. The moment I walked in, his face froze and it was written all over his face that I’m the one for him. (btw, I”m married and older than him). There was a strong attraction between us but I never thought of crossing the line, just merely wanted to be friends.

    During one of the visits, I asked whether is he attached. He said no until months later he confessed that he has a gf but no longer loves her. I didn’t suspect he liked me until he kept dropping hints and making references to me during the visits. We exchanged contacts and one day he confessed that he loves me and proposed to me twice to marry him if I ever divorce my husband. I told him let’s be friends and nothing else. He said he didn’t want to be my friend. Most of the time, it was me talking and he replying in the social networking site and sometimes he just ignores me, doesn’t reply me.

    Months later, he changed a new gf but still hinted to me that he still likes me. Then one day, he deleted me from a social networking site. I supposed he wanted to forget me and concentrate in his new relationship.

    4 months later, he checked out my social networking account and I started to talk to him. Again, me initiating the conversation and he replying. He confessed that he hasn’t forgotten about me all this while and he is single again. The very next day, I dropped by his hair salon for a hair cut as I haven’t had a hair cut for months. He was very happy to see me, dropped hints again and deliberately stroke my neck on the pretext of cutting my hair. (I have long hair). Then he didn’t reply to my messages again.

    I’m really very puzzled by his behaviour but decided not to dwell too much into it and leave him alone. But I would like to hear from your perspective of why is he behaving like that.

    Thanks Alan. 🙂

  • Confused Aries April 17, 2012

    Hello Allan,
    I’m guessing your a Pisces guy, right? Well, I’m having a little trouble with a friend of mine whom I really like. Do you think you could help me out? I have a lot of questions for you. Sorry for the bother.

  • Natasha April 22, 2012

    Hi there,
    U got I treating posts and responses all the way from 2009 to 2011.

    Ok so I’m sagi women and in love with a piscean man.

    Been together since July 2011.
    He is very romantic but at the same time very rude and goes crazy when he gets mad. I’m always calm and patient with him when he gets mad and support him which in turn makes him feel guilty for his behavior.
    He has changed a few things about himself after I tried to in courage him to be a stronger person and focus more on the future .
    He used to gamble and I used to do it too with him.
    When he used to loose money in gambling I used to give him money to gamble. Have shed almost $6000 on him in gifts , gambling etc.
    But he was willing to quit gambling and signed up an agreement with the casino and got his pic taken and banned himself from interring the casino to me that was a big sign that he is committed to me.
    One time when we had a fight over a silly matter ( he likes to distance himself and meet me once a week typical piscean thing. And I want to be with him everyday or at least few times. Week)and I had mentioned to him in my txt message that I will not forgive u until u go down on ur knees and get me flowers. 2-3 days later he actually did it and surprised me.
    I see him focusing more on life and his work now unlike before when we first met he had got himself out from a bad divorce from a marriage of 8 years. I’m divorced too after 8years of marriage.

    It feels so right with this guy I feel like he is my soulmAte.
    He cooks great food for me . Cuts my hair. Gives me music tapes to listen to, makes me feel jealous sometimes trying to flirt with other girls which I find very cute but at the same time I do get soo jealous.

    We did have sex the first day we met does that make a difference what he feels about me even though he initiated and insisted on having it?
    I know it’s a big no to have sex on the first meeting but on the other hand if ur soul mates and meeting after 30 years it had to happen 🙂

    So since everything is going so well I Told him last week that if he looks at me as a life partner or just a friend.he does compAre me to his ex and says I reming him of her.I told him I want his baby and he downplays it and says I will not be a good father just to see my next reaction. At times I know he just acts the opposite of what I want him to say just to see my reaction and get extra attention from me.

    Since then he hasn’t been talking much . But last night I insisted on having sex since it was missing for a week and he downplayed it and made me do most of the work but he was hard as rock .sex is always amazing with this guy .

    He takes me to stip clubs does that mean he is comfortable to watch other girls in my presence cos im cool about it? or he takes me more like a friend than a potential wife material?
    Now I’m planning to play it cool and not call him or msg him much which I usually always used to.
    I need to see if he is serious about me will he every marry me or move away like most pisceans do.

  • Natasha April 22, 2012

    And one more important thing that took place last week was after we had an argument I deleted all my pictures from his phone .
    And today I saw he had deleted my picture from his phone too I was his wallpaper on his cellphone.
    So I felt bad that I had deleted all my pictures and resent him all my pictures again.
    So silly of me 🙁

  • Clueless June 3, 2012

    Okay, I’ve been seeing a Pisces man for a few months now. We met a year ago at a youth center where I volunteer during the Summer and he coaches. He showed no sign of interest and being a Scorpio woman I’m good at hiding mine. I was very attracted to him but was unsure of his age because he looked very young. Well after the Summer was over we bumped into each other a local night club, so I knew then he was over 21; he asked me was I the same lady that volunteered and I told him yes. I then went on to say your’re the young man that coaches there and he responded by saying he wasn’t as young as I think he is. Well at that point I was intrigued and wanted to know more. But we went our seperate ways and that was that. Well months down the line I received a message on one of the popular social sites and I noticed it was him. He asked if I had remembered him and I was like how could I forget. We sent several messages back and forth, then he asked was it okay for him to have my number. After exchanging numbers he called and we talked awhile about several random things. I found out that he was 6 years younger than I, yet very mature and that he was a teacher. He asked if he could come by later in the week and I told him I didn’t see a problem with that. Well he came the next day and we set outside and had a great conversation but I could tell he was a bit nervous. We talked for few hours and then he had to leave so he could get ready for work. We continued to talk over the phone and he came back over the next week. This time it got pretty heated we talked a while and then came a heavy make out session. Before it went to far I explained to him we were moving a little fast he seemed okay with that so we cuddled all night and he left the next morning. Again we talked throughout the week but we didn’t see each other for two weeks. When we did things went from 0-60 rather quickly and it was GREAT!!! No complaints in that area at all. Well now this has been an ongoing thing every week now but I’m not sure if its just sexual or is he actually interested. I have a habit of not calling him or showing much interest so I had a feeling that he was wondering why because every call or hookup I’ve relied on him to initiate them. My feelings were confirmed when we went a week without speaking and like clock work he called on our hookup night and asked why I don’t contact him. So I nonchalantly made up some BS and said how I knew he was a busy man and wanted to give him his space ect.. Well truth is I was in an eleven year relationship/marriage and honestly not looking for a “boyfriend” but I really like him. Also he is younger and I feel from my own experience he needs to be free to explore all avenues. But my jealous nature has my mind running wild and I find myself wondering what he’s doing and who he’s doing it with. I can’t express this to him because I rarely share my feelings and I’m beginning to think he’s the same way. Anyway, he came over that night we talked until the early morning I sort of explained my reasoning on why I don’t call him and let him know it wasn’t that I didn’t feel anything for him. I let him know I’m not running around hooking up with random guys on Friday and that I’m only seeing him intimately. I explained I was married at one point and explained to him why it didn’t workout he looked surprised and ensured me that i would never have that problem with him. He seemed to understand and we preceded with our Friday night ritual but this time it was different. Its always passionate but this time to the 10th power. He held me and then he left the next morning because he said he had to be at work within the hour. For the entire day I was All Smiles 😛 Now I know I’m in trouble cause I really like him but I’ll cut my own tongue out before I let it come out my mouth. I don’t know what to do because this wasn’t my plan I just wanted to have a little fun with no strings attached but now I’m growing strings. He is really laid back and I can’t tell if he wants to be a little more serious or not. Hell I don’t know what I want but I do know I don’t just want to be his Friday night fling. I still haven’t built myself up to calling him and I’m sure I won’t but its driving me crazy not knowing what his intentions are. So what do you think? Should I leave it be, run in another direction? Honestly what do I do? Is there any potential here? Help me!!!!

    I needed to create you a bit of note to thank you very much the moment again for those extraordinary strategies you have contributed in this article. This has been so generous with you to give extensively all a lot of people would have supplied as an ebook in making some money for themselves, principally considering that you might well have done it if you ever considered necessary. Those strategies as well worked to become a fantastic way to be sure that many people have similar passion the same as my very own to figure out a little more pertaining to this problem. I believe there are several more enjoyable situations in the future for many who read through your site.

  • Ashes June 23, 2012

    Hey there! I would super like some advice! Lol

    I have been seeing a Pisces since march at first it was a bit rocky because he was super shy but I was more open and made conversation. We have been on tons of dates probably once a week in the beginning. In the middle I started getting confused to what he was looking for until he told one of my friends that he liked me he just didn’t know how to express it because of his shyness. After that I got all googoo and had a hard time opening up to him, but at the same time the amount of times I see him in a week increased. We started seeing each other a lot more with it still being hard for me to be super open about things because neither is he. I still stayed poppy and we have had our little side conversations. We have cuddled and kissed a bit. He introduced. E to his sister. And I started being a tad bit more open. I told him a bit about my past and he vaguely told me something a bit about his. Convo is flowing a bit more these past few hang outs. But now recently the amount of hangouts has decreased again. He isn’t rejecting me or ignoring me, just spacing things out a lot like it was in the beginning. My only question is, am I ruining this? Is he pushing away? Or am I just being the over-thinker again? Blah :/ I kinda wanna ask him if he wants to take this any further but I don’t want to pressure him either.

  • torap2005 October 10, 2012

    Hi Alan….not trying to be rude but How old are you? Why does it seem like you are playing games with the girl you mentioned in the post above. If you are a grown, adult man with interest in a grown adult woman then man up, stop tipping around dropping clues like she is supposed to be Inspector Gadget and just ask the chick out. That is so annoying. She is not a detective. I just don’t understand the game playing. Why in the world are you dropping clues for her to figure out if you have interest in her and like her. Here’s a novel idea…why don’t you just tell her. It’s like the little boy that pulls on the girls pigtail and runs off hoping that she figures out that he like her. And who has time for that anyway. What do you want her to ask you out? Man up and stop playing around if you are looking for someone with serious intentions. But now if you are just playing around, then just keep doing what you are doing because no serious woman is going to put up with that for long.

  • Helen December 27, 2012

  • Scoripion January 16, 2013

    I am a scorpio female I recently met a pisces man and lets just say I was immediately attracted to him. However, both prior to and after our initial physical meeting I have been the one to contact him to initiate communication. Although he always responds I find it difficult to determine whether or not he is interested in me? 😉

  • km January 17, 2013

    I have a question :
    I dated my Pisces man 4 years ago. At the time I was 18 & he was 21 it got very serious very fast like many relationships do when you’re young. I got married & moved away to Texas.. & we lost contact. I received a email from his sister on FB saying that her brother (the Pisces) asked if I would call him & gave me his number. So I called that evening.. as soon as he got on the phone it was word vomit.. he seriously did not stop talking for an hour. He told me that he’s missed me & that he never got over me. Basically, he let it be known that he would like to work on getting our relationship back on track. I’m an Aquarius & I’m not overly emotional so I didn’t have much to say back to him while he was spilling his guts to me. While we were in a relationship I felt very much in love & I’ve missed him over the years.. my question is.. if a Pisces man confesses his love is he normally genuine ? I do not want to be hurt but I also don’t want to put up unnecessary walls if he is being straight up with me.


  • Bambi February 26, 2013

    Hi, I have a question I’d like to ask you: I like a pisces man-he’s my friend’s friend and we’ve never talked before and he’s never seen me 😀 I like taking photos and when I found out he has the same hobby, I searched on the internet and found his work and because I thought he was really good at it, I sent him a message asking him where he learned it and we started chatting. I would like to ask him out-he’s really cute and seems very nice and smart…I’m just not sure if he would like to meet me and I’m afraid of embarassing myslef. The problem is that it’s always me who writes first and starts the conversation-then he’s very sweet and kind and sends long answers, even if he comes back from work late at night. How do I know he’s not just polite? I don’t want to bother him… I mean, we have fun and he even wrote that it’s fun to answer my questions, but I just don’t know…he’s in a different country for a few months and probably has a lot to do, but still…do you think he would reply if it bothered him? How do you think I could bring it to next level? 😀 Do you think it would be weird if I asked him if he’d like to have a coffee with me when he’s back? I really really like him! 😀 Thanks for your answers and sorry for my english, I’m trying to learn it well but it’s still not perfect :/ 😀

  • Taye March 20, 2013

    I’m 23 and work at a restaurant, and am a Gemini and have a good relationship with my 27 year old manager who is a Pisces. He’s really funny and a good calm guy which drew me to him. We worked together so I never really pushed anything romantically, but they announced our restaurant was closing last month so I started getting a little braver and talked/flirted with him more and starting talking to people about how I liked him. Some coworkers dropped hints to him that I thought he was cute, and everything seemed friendly and fun. I knew he couldn’t say anything because he was my manager, but 3 days before we closed I sent him a facebook message saying “You’re cute. I’m cute. Let’s meet for a drink the day after close, you choose the place.”. He didn’t respond, but at work the next couple of days we talked and shared some laughs and I felt like we were acting a little more cute towards each other. I also know he finds me physically attractive. The last day was yesterday and everyone was saying goodbye’s and he gave me a hug and smiled and that was kind of it. He hasn’t responded to the message or asked me out. He isn’t into me, right? :/ I think we could be great and get along well, should I keep pursing him?

  • Cutiepie April 10, 2013

    I really liked your advice but I still have doubts whether the Pisces guy I like, likes me back or not.
    Well he’s 18 and I’m 16 and we know each other through my best friend, me being his out of school best friend where as the guy I like being his in school one and we’ve only met around 3 or 4 times but we talk online quite often, actually everyday. He knows I like him, and he’s even come down once and we made out but whenever I directly ask him about whether he’s really interested in me or not, he either avoids talking or just gives vague replies. He’s also very academic and likes to live with his books more than people but that doesn’t make him antisocial, he’s actually quite charming and attractive when you talk to him. But he hasn’t really told our best friend or anyone about us and I’m really not sure what to make out of his actions. Online he’s really nice and quite spontaneous with his replies, he also seems interested in stuff we talk but I still have no clue what to take from him because he avoids talking about “us”.. if you get what I mean.

    I’d really like you to give me some advice as to whether he truly likes me or not. Thanks a lot 🙂

  • SagittariusBravado August 5, 2013

    Hey Alan!
    So I have this huge crush on a Pisces man… Sometimes I feel that he’s giving me signs, and then he just simply never replies my messages! The thing is that I cannot see him a lot… Oh well I hope I can have your email so we can discuss details! This issue is paralyzing me… And everytime I decide to give up, I get a sign! So I’d really appreciate your advice and help!


  • Saglady August 9, 2013

    Hey Alan,

    Is there any chance we could discuss by email my case? I am going crazy here, and I really don’t know how to take a next step, so any help would be appreciated!


  • Kate September 8, 2013

    Ok, so I am super confused! My dad was a Pisces so it’s not like I haven’t been around a Pisces before. However it’s different when it’s someone that I have romantic intrest in and not my father. So here’s my problem, a few days ago I got a message on this dating site I was using, the guy was really nice and we talked for a few hours and he gave me his number and asked me to text him. Our texts were short lived because he wanted to call me, we were on the phone for a bit when he laughed and said he wanted to watch me talk because I was going 100 miles a min and he wanted to see me as I spoke because he liked listening to me, so we both have iPhones and facetimed for over an hour (at this point we had been messaging, texting, talking, and on FaceTime all night long) we friended each other on Facebook (I thought it was cute because my relationship status on Facebook said I was in a relationship because I just hadn’t changed it, and he complained and asked me to change it to single, so I changed it) then we talked some more and he said he was going to go to bed and I agreed that I should aswell it was 2am! The next day we texted some, then he said he had to go and we would talk later. I said yeah no problem, we said bye and now it’s been 2 days and nothing. I don’t want to text him because I don’t wanna be pushy I guess. I have no idea what to do with this situation. I mean with my dad, I would just make a sad face like my feelings were hurt and go in my bedroom and not even 3 mins later he was at the door offering me whatever it took to make me not be sad. However this guy isn’t my dad, and I’m glad he’s not! I can’t just sniffle say ok daddy in a sad voice and go in my room to wait a few seconds until he comes to me trying to make me stop crying. So what do I do??? Should I just not text him? Should I just say “hey guy how ya doing?” And act like it doesn’t slightly bug me that he dissapeared on me? I am so lost!!

  • Confused girl September 21, 2013

    Hi Alan,
    I’ve been seeing this pisces guy of and on for about a year now. Im a sagitarrius. For the past year I fell in love with him. The problem that we have is we are both in relationships. We work together and sometimes his girlfriend will come to the job and start an argument with him. Once that happen he will stop talking to me for a while. It’s really frustrating because I really love him. How do I know if he really cares for me and love me?

    Hi Alan, ❓

    I have a long, extremely complicated situation to bring to you and I hope that you can help me. A Pisces man recently came into my life, pretty suddenly and without warning, when I was in the middle of a toxic relationship with an Aquarius. This Pisces completely baffles me, because I have traditionally dated Aquarius or Aries who are much, much, more direct and hyper masculine and in general there is no pretense or reading in between the lines there. I met this Pisces at a party and gave him my Facebook information, as I would never give my number out when I had a boyfriend, but I had just moved back to the city and was looking for friends.

    He messaged me about a week later and said something to the effect of that, “He really liked talking to me and wanted to hang out soon.” I sent my number, and because we had a mutual friend in common I thought that things would be on a friend basis, and did not think too much of it to be honest. He called me that Friday and I missed it. He texted me back and I interpreted it as a booty call so I did not answer since I had a boyfriend. The next day I decided to have some faith in the universe and text him back the next day and say that we should hang out later after a show that I was going to. Some of his roommates were at the show so he ended up being there and we walked all of the way home together. We had a really good time and there was definitely chemistry which I had not even noticed at first.

    When we went back to my house he tried to touch my hand and I jumped because I realized that I could not take it there while I was still in a relationship. He left and said that he wanted to see me soon and that we had “Lots of time to get to know each other.” The next day I ran into him where he works and he invited me to a show and to watch TV and I turned him down and said that I had work to do because I was totally confused myself. The relationship that I was in was abusive and I knew it and I had been trying to find a way out for some time, but I did not want to cheat or use this guy to do it because I genuinely liked him and cared for some unknown reason even though I barely knew him.

    I initiated a hang out a few days later to try and get to know him as a friend, but he gave sort of a flippant answer in a cute and well thought out text. He walked down my street later that night pretending to be on the phone and stopped and talked to me for a minute. We made a plan to meet up for drinks the next day and I cancelled on him because I had work to do. After that nothing was initiated for awhile, but every time that I ran into him he kept asking to read a piece of writing that I was working on when it was done. People had been telling me that he talked about me all the time, even as far as to ask about my boyfriend, what he looked like, and what kind of a guy he was. I said I’d be happy to show it to him. I ran into him one day near a coffee shop and he walked by and looked like he was scared of me. I invited him to sit down, and he did and unloaded on me about his life, and a relationship he had been in for three years that had broken up a few months earlier.

    When he left he said something to the effect of “Thank you for inviting me to sit down, I sometimes build walls around myself, and I like being around you I don’t feel like I have to entertain you blah, blah, blah.” So the next day I invited him to a show very casually and this time a hang out actually happened, and it was extremely intense and really unlike anything I have ever felt before. We talked forever and I told him a little bit about my relationship and the tension kept building and at one point he said that’s not love and basically looked into my soul I feel like and we came about as close as you can come to hooking up without even kissing. Also he was telling me that my boyfriend is a fool. He said that he didn’t want to take advantage of me and we fell asleep next to each other.

    I expected him to leave in the morning but then he suggested that we get breakfast and proceeded to hang out for the next 5-6 hours. In the morning he was being really affectionate and kept saying that I needed to figure things out with my boyfriend but that he would be around. In these hours we talked about a lot of things, and he kept saying that he needed someone like me in his life, and that I deserved a guy who would take care of me, and be there like my Aquarius boyfriend was not. At some points he would talk about girls that he supposedly had “crushes” on but then wouldn’t tell me who so it seemed like BS, and a ploy to make me jealous? He kept saying that I should help him pick out some clothes and we went and did that. I started to feel really guilty and he picked up on it and we had one last talk, in which he told me that I needed to figure out my boyfriend but he would love to see me soon. I didn’t say it back because I was so confused at this point and when he walked away he looked sad.

    The next day he ran into my best friend and texted me immediately after and asked how I was and that he wanted to see me on Saturday. I made a joke about how I was starving and he invited me over to eat the next day, and said, and I quote “Offer stands if you are ever hungry.” I turned him down because I hadn’t ended my relationship yet and I wanted to be genuine. So I ended my relationship and texted him on Saturday when I hadn’t heard from him. He said that he was sick which I do know was true and then he said he wanted to read my writing soon. So then I don’t hear from him for like a week? I invited him to a party and he never even answered? When I ran into him the next day he didn’t give me an explanation for not answering and apologized. He asked me a little bit about the party and I said I’d let him know. I hadn’t actually told him that I had ended my relationship and wanted to wait an appropriate amount of time. He said something to the effect of “Call me sometime,” and that he wanted to read my story. He also made some weird comment about how “Love is a strong word,” when I said that I loved something that I was wearing.

    So I followed through and let him know where the party was, and also explained that I had broken up with my boyfriend the week before and thanked him for hanging, and the advice. He did not answer for a few hours and then I got a nice text back saying that he was “Working on art and forgetting about the world, you don’t need to thank me thank yourself I suppose not me. I have to work tomorrow morning sorry this is so last minute, and I do want to see you soon though.” I didn’t text him back until the next morning and I was very casual and said that he should work on his art and that I’d like to see him soon though. I got something back about how my ex had come into the store where he works and I had NEVER showed him a picture, but just decided to make a joke out of it.

    So then I don’t hear from him for about a week again and it was like WHAT is up? I ran into him where he works and he was really friendly and came right over to wait on me, asked me all sorts of questions about my life, and said that we should hang out soon and gave me a hug. I told him that I was free most of the weekend and to let me know. Of course I never heard from him. I ran into him at the store the next day and he wasn’t very friendly, but was in the middle of working with a line out the door so I didn’t take it super personal. I had spent my last money on what I bought there. I’ve read that Pisces are shy so I decided to put myself out there as much as I could and be genuine and sent a text saying that I was in fact hungry, that I would reimburse, and that I was more in the mood to hang with a friend than go out.

    Didn’t hear a thing all night and then got a super friendly text in the morning, at like 8 AM, saying, “Aww I wish I’d seen this last night :(” and saying that he too was broke but that we should hang out later and split something. I was fine with that and said that I would be getting a work check that day and would have money and to let me know when he was out of work. I never heard back from him, and still haven’t a few days later. Nothing, not a word, no explanation and it is kind of rude actually and makes me wonder if he is just a jerk or is blowing me off in a “nice” way to avoid confrontation.

    I am pretty much ready to just give up and not initiate contact and see what happens but I am just totally and completely confused. I guess as a Taurus woman I have no idea WHY someone would go through ALL of that effort to convince me to be available and find out about my life and who I am and like it and then pull a Houdini slowly and bit by bit the minute that I am single. I don’t think that I did anything after my breakup that was dishonest or not genuine and really tried to see what the deal was without pressuring anything because I am not one to hunt someone down. I feel a BIT emotionally taken advantage of and don’t understand why someone would lead on intentionally or unintentionally someone who is in such a vulnerable position to begin with. It was blatant that he liked me and was extremely interested and his Houdini act completely baffles me. In my experience men don’t send friendly texts that initiate a hang out to women that they don’t like, but I don’t know Pisces men well. I know already that I won’t reach out again because I will look clingy, but I was just wondering if you as a Pisces man have any idea what happened, what might happen in the future, and what I should do either way? I don’t believe all of that was fake, have a strong instinct about that, but I just don’t understand the sudden change and it has come with no explanation and what seems to be now as superficial courtesy.

    I do have some personal questions, would appreciate if you could email me. Am not very comfortable to have Q&A online.

    Thank you 🙂

    Hi Alan,

    I have some concerns regarding a Pisces male and I’m not really comfortable discussing it on here. Email me please?

    Thanks x

  • Rozell September 22, 2014

    Alan this was very ineresting and I’m glad you came forth with this information. I dated a Pieces male and it was a hard crush. In your explaination of all I think you forgot to mention that you Pieces are quite and sneaky. 😉

    Hi, I’ve been seeing a pisces guy on and off for the past 2 years, things have been fairly rocky during that time with us both splitting up seeing other people and variuos issues from previous relationships to deal with.

    I’m pretty sure I loved this guy from very quickly after starting to see him, but kept my feelings back knowing that he had some issues with depression etc.

    I was in a situation with an ex boyfriend of mine about 6 months ago, who wanted to get back together with me, and as pisces and I weren’t together at the time, I started to see him, he has loved me for years but we separated before we got married because I had feelings for pisces. Anyway I told pisces all about guy A and he suddenly declares his love for me, saying I should be with him etc, when a couple of months before he didn’t seem that bothered about me, this threw me into turmoil as I know where my feelings lie, but I don’t trust a guy who only tells me how he feels when he knows he’s going to loose me.

    I’ve backed off both men although I know Guy A really loves me, pisces guy now doesn’t seem bothered again and I’m stuck in the middle, I want the one that doesn’t seem interested, crazy love triangle.

    Recently I joined Match.com, updated all my profile and got some matches sent through – pisces guy being one of them – hilarious- Match thinks we are a good match but we can’t seem to make it work – anyway I send him a wink and said hello, that I wasn’t stalking him, and wish him well. He’s been back in touch but it’s been very limited texts and responses, last night he mentions he’s playing with his band at the weekend and if I’d like to pop down to see them?

    I’d like to ask him if he wants me to pop down because they need more bums on seats or as a friend or if he wants me to see him play so he can show off a little for me, but knowing him, that type of direct question would send him into a panic, I want to go and show my support as I know it’ll be great, but I don’t know if this will just cause me more pain.

    This might seem like a ridiculous scenario – there are a lot of other things that have happened and things that might make him feel unsure about me, that I can’t mention on here as they implicate guy A – he has a cause to be cautious, and last weekend flatly he flatly refused to get back into a relationship with me, but I know he still feels for me.

    We have both had areas of blame in this scenario, but there is one thing I’m sure of – I love him, but I don’t want to get burnt again the same as him probably.

    What do you reckon?

  • Cassandra December 3, 2014

    Personally I just want to add that if a guy is asking me questions I don’t normally assume that into me I just assumed that since he works in the store he is a good salesman and is trying to figure out what angle you can approach me so he knows what types of items I may be interested in buying or what types of products may suit me

    I’m worried I may have scared off my good friend who’s a Pisces. A close mutual friend informed me that he had inquired after my well-being and I had gotten the idea a few different times that he might like me (hanging around where I work just to talk, asking me to hang out specifically, asking me if I wanted his new number so we could talk more), but having low self-esteem, I was afraid I was reading too much into it and he was just being friendly. Well, after hearing that he was so concerned for me, I decided to just take a risk and be brave. I told him I really appreciated him asking about me and every nice thing he’s ever done for me. He acted very quiet and odd afterwards and we haven’t talked since. Was I too forward with him, and if so, is there any way to repair the damage? He’s a rare find in an increasinly callous world and I’d hate to lose his friendship because of my foolish misinterpretation of his intentions. Thanks!

    So I’m dealing with a Pisces Man (Gemini Moon) guy. I’ve known him since 2009 and ironically three things: 1) we both graduated from the same high school, 2) we’ve hooked up a few times in the past and 3) I dated his best friend for almost 3 years. He said he use to notice me all the time in high school but never gathered the courage to speak to me, yet his locker was 2-3 down from mine (last name alphabetized).

    Now out of the blue in January he contacted me. Was asking to hangout, really pursuing me with questions and conversation. We hung out, he was very flirty, touchy, and sweet. We hooked up. He was determined to keep contact. I on the other hand dropped the ball for the next 5 months and was seeing someone else instead. In between that time he ran into my mother, talked to her said to her to have me contact him and to say “hi”. I of course have since broke up with that guy.

    So July 3rd, I contacted him and we conversed. I initiated contact. We flirted and now later today I’m suppose to hangout. I’m just trying to figure out if I should play it cool and go with the flow or let him slowly know that maybe down the road I would like to entertain the idea for something more than physical and friendship. Anyone have any thoughts?

  • Virgo Girl August 12, 2015

    Hi Alan,

    I’m new to your blog and I am very impressed with you views and the way you have given advice to others. I really like a Pisces man I work with so I was hoping you could give me some sound advice too. (Apologies for the long message) I’ve known this guy for a year and although I noticed him right away, I’m pretty shy and so we never did more then say hi and goodbye or ask how each other how we were doing for a good few months. One day he starts asking me how to pronounce certain words in English (He is Hungarian) and it became our thing to help him with his studying. We added each other on Facebook and we now message each other pretty much every day. During our conversations he found out I love music, singing and dancing and out of the blue he sends me a video of people dancing and asked me where he could learn to dance like that. I found a dance studio online that does taster classes and sent him the link. He immediately asked me to go with him and I said yes. We had a great time, we ended up walking around for hours afterwards talking about anything and everything. The only slightly awkward moment was when he had to leave in order not to miss his last train. I hesitated saying goodbye and he leaned in and gave me a one armed hug and rushed off. I stood there for a moment hoping he would look back and was a little disappointed when he didn’t. He suprised me with a message later tgat night saying he had a lovely time and I was an amazing person. I messaged him saying I had a great time too and I looked forward to the next time. Since then we still message everyday and have been to another dance class. He always makes plans to meet me again and I really feel special in his company. He smiles at me constantly, listens when I speak and seems genuinely interested in what I have to say. Last night we were messaging each other and he brought up the subject of my tongue stud and was it difficult to kiss with it. This is the first time he has said anything that could be considered flirting. I was honest and told him I had not kissed anyone since I have had it done (About two weeks ago) He told me he had never had any complaints about his kissing and I decided to be forward and ask if he wanted to kiss me. He didn’t say yes or no, he just asked how many kisses I would like? I said let’s start with one and see what happened. He said ok but he didn’t think he could kiss me properly because I am his friend. I took this to mean that he really does just see me as a friend. Thinking over our conversations he has always referred to me as his friend and that he is enjoying getting to know me as a friend, but when he looks at me, I can feel something more between us. Perhaps I should point out that I have always dated guys that have been very forward in showing me that they would like to be more then friends and this hasn’t worked out too well. I want to show him that I like him but I’m worried I may be misreading the signs completely! The next time we meet up we’re going stargazing as I told him once I have had dreams recently about starry skies. Would this be a good time to see if he feels more for me? Again, I’m sorry for the long winded message but I would appreciate your thoughts
    Peace and love

    I need help
    I’ve know a Piscean guy which im interested in. Im an Aries lady, he’s older than me by 4yrs,26yo. We met in a club and exchange number from there, without holding much hope i wasnt expecting anything. But as time passes, we have been texting everyday and i ask for a meet up and we did. It’s a pleasant meet up, we had dinner and movie, like “get to know more about you'” kinda meetup but he didnt ask much about my past and all, more like small talks. But in the movie, he would offer me he’s jacket incase im cold and when gross scene pop up he would cover my eye which feels like is also interested in me. And most of the time he’s the one to msg me first, but he never ask me for a 2nd date, even tho he said he miss me. He’s a regular officer so hes only free time is the weekend but it seems like hes busy and doesnt have time to meet me. Im alittle upset in my msg but he seems to continue texting me like normal. What should i do? Is he interested and taking it slow? Should I just tell him my feelings? Im afraid it would scare him off.


  • Ocean February 2, 2016

    Hi Verlyn, I might be able to help. By the actions that shows he is being a gentleman to you. To me it seems like he is interested by initiating those messages after the movies. Since he is only free in the weekends, arrange a day where he will have the chance to follow through. From the conversations you both had, find out his hobbies where you are keen to experience it with him too. Take away the pressure that it is like a “2nd date” but more of an activity where you both can learn more about one another through a natural way. Good luck!

  • Danielle July 29, 2017

    What’s confusing to me about my pisces man is that he doesn’t talk/text much since we saw each other. However, I asked if I should back off and his literal response was, “no, hell no babe.” Then no more messages back after that. I have felt completely ignored all day until that message, then back to being ignored after it.

  • Kate May 13, 2018

    Hi Alan, it seems like you give good advice from a piscean’s perspective. So here’s my delimma i know a pisces guy for 6 years now and i am a virgo. I was in a different relationship with another person but this i can somehow feel that this pisces guy liked me from the way he looks at me ang treated me it was so different from other girls. When my relationship with the other guy did not work out although he knew i was already single he never made an effort to approach me but he liked my facebook status but never initiate a conversation with me. I made the first move for about six times already although he replies politely but never follows up. So i decided to move on with my life and unfriended him on facebook. Fast forward 2 yrs later just when my life is starting to forget him he suddenly appears again added me on facebook but does not initiate any conversation at all. So im just wondering why would he be friending me on facebook but does not communicate, liked any of my post or whatsover. Im just confused why his back again. Please help i need clarity.
