Pisces men have many layers, so understanding how he is in a committed, romantic relationship involves taking a deep dive. Once you do, you'll understand what's involved in romantic commitment to your Pisces man.

The Pisces Male Romantic Personality

Delving into the subject of Pisces men and commitment means understanding the depth of the Pisces personality, and "depth" really is the operative word. Almost no other astrological sign can truly grasp the deep feelings Pisces can have for another human.

Love Connections Are Spiritual to Pisces

That's because it's not only a love connection, but a merging with another soul. A Pisces man wants a soul mate, and he wants one for life. He will swim to distant shores to find that person, and even time or having to wait for someone will not dissuade him from this search. It's his "reason to be." This emotional connection and the search for their soul mate is the undercurrent of a Pisces man's life.

Pisces Men and Commitment

With so much feeling driving their lives, one may wonder if Pisces men cheat. The answer is yes, like any other sign they do. This begs the question of why? While there are psychological underpinnings to anyone who cheats, from a purely astrological view, Pisces unfaithfulness is usually caused by a break in the emotional and/or spiritual connection. The best way to keep infidelity at bay is to understand what Pisces men are attracted to in the first place.

Pisces Likes to Feel a Sense of Fate

Don't underestimate how strong Pisceans respond to the question of fate. If they believe that the two of you are "meant" to be together, nothing will shake their conviction.

Spirituality Is Important to Pisces

Pisces can find "spirit" in different forms. From looking into an animal's eyes, to a piece of music, to art, all of it moves Pisces to a higher spiritual level. Does your relationship do the same? Is your Pisces allowed to grow, or is he mired in day-to-day struggles? If his soul cannot "be," he may stray.

Pisces Wants Someone at His Side

Pisces do much better when they have someone who can accompany them. Pisceans can get into all sorts of trouble! Circumvent this by simply going with them. Whether to the local pub, or Home Depot, Pisces has the best times when his mate is with him. If he's alone, he'll start to ruminate, find himself feeling down, and then, of course, search for a way to relive his sadness. This can easily lead him into the arms of another.

Compatible Signs for Pisces

The truth of the matter is that any sign can get along with a Pisces; they are that lovable. But having a moon, Venus, or Mars placement in a water sign will be a huge help. The water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and fellow Pisceans. Both Cancer and Scorpio swim in murky waters so they can more easily understand the deeply emotional nature of the Pisces personality. However, it's the down-to-earth and practical nature of the earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus, that can provide direction, consistency, and stability a Pisces man needs.

Winning the Heart of a Pisces Man

Be patient if you want more than a situatinship with Pisces. It will take time for a Pisces man to feel comfortable enough with you to open up to the possibility of committed love. Let a Pisces man know you're interested in more than just a fling, and he'll be more willing to take the relationship seriously.

  • Be joyful, playful, and fun. Making him laugh is a good start.
  • Don't keep him guessing. Be honest and straightforward about your feelings for him.
  • Take a serious interest in his life.
  • Go with the flow and be gentle, kind, and loving with him.
  • Open up emotionally to him. The more you open up, the more he'll open up.
  • Lean on him for support. A Pisces man gets a lot of satisfaction from helping others.
  • Be reciprocal in terms of affection and respect.
  • Listen to his dreams and be supportive, no matter how weird or wild they might seem.
  • Little gestures that show you're invested in him will also go a long way toward winning his heart.

Factors That Drive Pisces Men Away

Some factors will drive Pisces away faster than others. These factors include:

Ridiculing Pisces

Ridiculing Pisces for his compassionate nature towards people, animals, and causes will first send him into a depression. Once that's over, he'll quickly search for other like-minded people.

Taking Advantage of Pisces

Pisces men tend to be fairly gentle, but love partners that mistake kindness for weakness will, in the long run, lose these men.

Being Cruel

Compassionate Pisces loathes cruelty in all its forms, so if you have a vindictive streak, this man's probably not for you.

When a Pisces Man Is Angry

Neptune is Pisces' ruler, and according to mythology, the ruler of the seas. At times, the seas are placid, calm, and tranquil, but at other times, they churn with violence. An angry Pisces can be just as destructive. Once angered, Pisces can wreak havoc, and cut a path of destruction much like any other storm.

Avoid His Anger With Respect and Kindness

It takes a lot to push Pisces to this level of anger; he usually just lets it sit and swirl within, but over time, the pressure builds and eventually has to be let out. Treat a Pisces man with the respect and kindness he deserves, and you'll never have to see this side. Additionally, keep in mind that Pisces usually takes his pain out on himself rather than others.

Loving a Pisces Man

The topic of Pisces men and commitment means delving in the Pisces personality and swimming from one end of the spectrum to the other. Yes, he may cheat, but he doesn't have to. Traits like kindness, compassion, understanding, humor, and fun will go a long way with Pisces. If he sees these traits in you, he'll know there's no reason to stray.
