1. Emotionally Overwhelmed and Strung Out
Aquarius men pull away when things move too fast in love. When confronted with strong feelings, he experiences mental strain as a result.
A kind of defense mechanism that an Aquarius man uses to protect himself from being hurt is to treat others in a cold and distant manner. When faced with a significant amount of mental and emotional strain, an Aquarius man will respond by pulling away from the situation.
Consider the following brief scenario:
Imagine that you have a disagreement with a man who is an Aquarius over something. You took out your anger on him for about half an hour, telling him what he had done wrong and how frustrated you were with him.
Even though you will feel better after you have expressed your feelings, you should know that you have just poured all of your negative emotions into his system. He will experience feelings of agitation and exhaustion to an extreme degree.
The Aquarius guy will distance himself and become emotionally detached in order to restore his composure and quiet his racing thoughts.
2. Return to a Regular Schedule
Emotions are something that are experienced by all humans, including Aquarian men. However, because of their sensitivity, they are unable to take pleasure in them for very long. Even uplifting emotions like love and happiness might appear to them to be too much for them to handle.
At the beginning, an Aquarius guy may be in high gear in order to win your heart. But the truth is that he might not actually be enjoying the sensation, and the only reason he is acting this way is to win your love.
After some time, if he begins to experience feelings that are too taxing for him, he may decide that he wants to take things more slowly in a relationship. One of the first signs of taking things slowly is the tendency to withdraw emotionally.

When an Aquarius man isn’t getting the emotional response he needs from a partner, he can become emotionally distant. This can be a sign of an unhealthy relationship.
An emotional connection with a partner should go in both directions for a man who is an Aquarius. Because he doesn’t want to be the only one to put in effort in a relationship, he expects his significant other to be proactive as well.
If you don’t respond to him, an Aquarian man will revert to his subconscious trait, which is cold by nature. He will have the impression that he is no longer required to try to win your approval.
Remember that when you’re with an Aquarius, there’s an automatic gear in a relationship. You have to be the one to make the first move if you want an Aquarius man to fall in love with you.

He will get the impression that he is not desired if his partner does not show any interest in being intimate with him. Because there is no romance in his life, he has reverted to his default personality traits, which are being aloof and uncaring.
