Pisces Love Compatibility

Pisces Love Style

Passionate, intense, and singular, a relationship with a Pisces is a roller-coaster ride that will make you feel your feelings—even the bad ones—and help you emerge as a better, more honest person. Even if a relationship with a Pisces doesn't last, the lessons you learn from a Pisces partner will.

A Pisces will go all-in when it comes to romance, and expects their partner to do the same. It's not as if a Pisces is clingy—on the contrary, a Pisces can seem incredibly independent while in a relationship—but a Pisces constantly views the world as if from a split-screen: The world through their eyes, and the world through their partner's eyes. They're always trying to make the choices that are the best for both parties, and even small decisions, like where to order Seamless, are made with that perspective in mind.

A Pisces wants their partner to grow, and demands that their partner brings their very best self to the relationship. That may cause some partners to feel like they're being pushed away, as a Pisces partner will likely say of course they should seek a promotion, more time at the gym, or a goal, even if it means spending time apart.

For Pisces, the physical, spiritual, and intellectual are deeply intertwined, and in relationships, physicality is an important manifestation of love. Pisces can be incredibly sensual when they're feeling deeply in love, but isn't a sign that ever fakes anything. Pisces demands full presence in a relationship, and is especially hurt by any sort of deception. A Pisces demands full honesty and gives the same in return.

Best Zodiac Love Matches for Pisces

Virgo: This grounding earth sign can stop Pisces from getting too mired in their emotions, and can give Pisces the stability and "island anchor" the sign may feel they need. Virgo finds strength in the deep, abiding acceptance Pisces brings to the partnership.

Scorpio: Scorpio brings heat and passion to Pisces watery depths, and, Pisces, as a fellow water sign, can get underneath Scorpio's surface in a way few other Zodiac signs can. This match can seem stormy, but these two signs are good at weathering the challenges of a relationship, and both can fight during the day—and end up entwined in each other's arms by night.

Pisces: Who better to understand a fish than a fellow fish? This partnership can seem to develop like the moon—faint to see at first, only to be powerful and luminescent a few days later. Pisces respect each other's space and know each other's needs, and together, the pair can be incredibly powerful.

Favorite Date Nights For Pisces

A Pisces needs to be in the mood to go on a date, and if a Pisces calls to say they're not feeling it, it's best to reschedule. It's not a blow-off, it's just that Pisces are ruled by their emotions, and a bad mood can often equal a bad date.

So when the mood is right, where do you go? One sure way to a Pisces heart is to share some of your favorite places with them. Pisces can seem reserved at first, and they often feel safer is a partner opens up first, especially in the early days of dating. To a Pisces, seeing your favorite restaurant or ice cream place is a way for them to play anthropologist, and they will love asking you questions to get to know your likes, quirks, and tastes more.

For the best date, try to split the difference: You bring them to your favorite dinner place, but have them introduce you to their favorite dessert place. And Pisces doesn't believe in any first date do's or don'ts—of course, it's nice to pay the whole bill, but if they offer to pay their share, accept them at their word and agree.

The Deal with PIsces and Fire Signs

It's common for water sign Pisces to be attracted to fire signs—Aries, Leo, Sagittarius—who can be way too passionate and intense for Pisces. These partnerships often end in duh-rama, so why do they happen?

Well, it all comes down to the "opposites attract" principle. Yes, Pisces is driven crazy by fire signs. But there's something about their passion and conviction—even if the conviction is short-lived—that is appealing to Pisces. While the passion of a Pisces is often internally rooted and directed, Pisces admires the way fire signs wear their passion on their sleeves. A Pisces will see an injustice and intellectually come up with several options for correcting it. A fire sign will make noise, make themselves seen, and attempt to get that injustice fixed in that very second. That "looking before you leap" line of thinking is infuriating—and pretty captivating, too.

So, can things work out between a Pisces and a fire sign? Yes—but both sides have to be prepared to give a little. A Pisces needs to remember they can't change their fire sign partner, and a fire sign needs to understand that a Pisces will take their bluster at face value. Both sides may need to learn to calm down, communicate, and give each other space to work things out in their own way.

How to Seduce a Pisces

A Pisces may be prickly on the first conversation. Or the tenth. That may be a sign you're trying too hard to please them. For a Pisces, the most annoying thing in the world is for you to try to get them to like you. Either they like you—the real you—or they don't. Don't overthink and be yourself, but these moves—if they're moves that you already do—will also be positively received by a Pisces.

Have an in-process book on your Kindle: A Pisces will ask what book you're reading—and chances are, they've read it too.

Let them see your bedhead. Whether it's diving into the ocean or going on a miles-long hike, a Pisces doesn't want to be tied down to someone who always cares if their hair, makeup, and clothes are perfectly in place. A Pisces wants to get dirty—and wants to find someone comfortable with getting dirty, too.

Have a POV. Don't try to fish around for their political beliefs just so it can sound like you're on the same page as them. A Pisces wants to see the real you, and won't cut you off because they don't have the same viewpoint as you. As long as you're respectful and open to other ideologies, share your point of view with pride.

How to Make Love to a Pisces

To a Pisces, the body and mind are intertwined, and great sex starts with an emotional and intellectual connection. A Pisces needs to feel safe to truly let go and it's important to talk about their feelings before—and in—the act. With that in mind, talk about how much your Pisces means to you. How incredible their body feels. And make sure both of you have time to wind down with plenty of pillow talk.

A Pisces gets turned on by fantasy, and may or may not want to make those fantasies a reality. Just as powerful to a Pisces, though, si feeling safe enough to talk through some of their deepest desires. Having code names that are used just in the bedroom and lingerie or toys only taken out on certain occasions can also be a great way to connect, as Pisces loves the feeling of having secrets kept only between them and their partner.

If You Love a Pisces Woman

For a Pisces woman, emotions are tied to her deepest self, and all her emotions are true in the moment. Understand that calling her "emotional" will only alienate you—a Pisces woman knows that her emotions may be mercurial, but in the moment, you must understand that what she is feeling is real.

A Pisces woman wants a partner to understand her need for self-evolution, self-identity, and private time. A Pisces woman needs honesty, respect, and transparency. If you love a Pisces woman, commit to having an egalitarian relationship where you will regularly examine, discuss, and decode each other's feelings—but where going deep will only make you closer.

How to Communicate With a Pisces Woman

Be honest at all times. It's a concept much easier said than done, but a Pisces woman respects honesty more than anything. A Pisces woman also can sometimes "feel" your mood, even if you don't voice what you're feeling or thinking, so being able to meet her where she "feels" you is essential. In other words, don't say everything's fine if it's not.

If You Love a Pisces Man

A Pisces man may seem removed or remote, but he may just be trying to protect his heart and his emotions. The best way to get him to open up is to show your own vulnerability. Share your own stories, invite him into your place. Give, without asking for reciprocation. Of course, you shouldn't be a doormat, but you should be confident in your own self. Hiding pieces of yourself can make it hard for a Pisces man to fully open up.

A Pisces man needs to move on his own timeline, and trying to deduct his feelings and next moves by reaching out to friends or family or doing a deep-dive into his social media won't be met kindly. He will feel like you're spying, and may be even less likely to share in the future.

How to Communicate with a Pisces Man

A Pisces man doesn't want to play games, and even though a Pisces man may have a jealous streak, stoking his jealousy isn't a way to win his love. It's important to be direct, honest, and say how you feel—even if your feelings seem confusing. A Pisces man would much rather hear you're conflicted than hear everything is fine.

Should You Marry a Pisces?

Yes! Passionate, intense, and incredibly smart, a Pisces will push you further than you thought you could go. A Pisces will give you a unique perspective on life, and a Pisces will teach you that even—especially—when a relationship is challenging, that's sometimes when it's most worth fighting for. A Pisces will help you fall even more in love with yourself and your potential, and a partnership with a Pisces will only make you feel more you.

Signs That a Pisces Is Playing for Keeps

Aloof Pisces can seem hard to understand—while it may feel like they know everything about you, it may feel like you know hardly anything about them. But there are a few ways you can tell a Pisces is serious.

  1. They commen on your Insta. A Pisces tends to keep their emotions—and their social circle—pretty close to their chest. When they publicly comment on your social media feed, it's a sign they want the world to know that they are with you.
  2. They spend a night (and breakfast) with you. For a Pisces, an overnight is a big deal. It's not about being intimate, it's about waking up the next morning, figuring out a shower schedule, and pulling together breakfast. To a Pisces, those are truly intimate acts, and only reserved for those people they want to be in their life for the long term.
  3. They say I love you. Yes, this sounds like an obvious sign of affection. But a Pisces will never say this phrase lightly, so when they say it to you, it's a sign they really mean it.

Pisces Relationship Red Flags

A Pisces won't stay in a relationship that's not working, and they're likely to tell you pretty quickly if they feel like things are off. That said, there are a few relationship red flags to look for when you're involved with a Pisces. In a relationship, a Pisces will celebrate your accomplishments as if they're his or her own, so if they're not asking you about your goals, congratulating you on milestones, or immersing themselves in your latest passions, it's a sign something's off. A Pisces also wants to be their best self when they're with someone they love, so if it seems like they're slacking off, seem goalless, or seem directionless or unhappy with their own lives, it could be a sign they're also unhappy with their relationship.

How Pisces Deals With a Broken Heart

When a Pisces has a broken heart, they hurt. They know the only way through the pain is to really feel it, and sometimes, a week in bed, with Adele blasting and romcoms playing on Netflix is the best medicine. Give them space to heal, and don't offer platitudes. Let them hurt, let them cry, and give them a shoulder to lean on when they need it.
