On the other hand, for the soul mate, life-long partner seeker, you’ve found your path home!

Hearth & Home
Since Pisces is a symbol consisting of two-fish it is not unusual for the Pisces male to appreciate home decorations related to watery themes or scenes.

Dating a Pisces Man
Pisces men are extremely fond of the arts and any creative endeavor because it stimulates the imagination. Any pursuit that allows the Pisces male to express himself through creative endeavors is on the top of the list of “likes” of the male born under this sun sign. Whether being creative with drawing, painting, sculpting, photography or some other artistic outlet or just being creative with one’s attire and wardrobe choices, the Pisces male will continue to look for highly unique means of personal expression. Now, you might call it wasteful daydreaming but not the Pisces male … he calls it enjoying the powers of his imagination: Something he likes to spend a lot of time using. Pisces men are very much about enjoying their inner realities.
There are just some things a Pisces male has no care for and one of them is excessive rules, regulations, and restrictions. Pisces men are those who like to pave their own path, to forge forward without interruption or direction so when it comes to rules and regulations, the Pisces man tends to be a bit on the rebellious side. If the rules they must deal with infringes on the Pisces man’s personal freedom, he might rage against the establishment.

Best Match for the Pisces Man
Even as a child your Pisces man demonstrated extreme sensitivity and proved to be an emotional child. For the most part, because of his sympathetic nature, the Pisces male got along with siblings with relative ease. However, don’t forget the emotional sensitivity of the Pisces makes him excessively vulnerable to emotional hurts that might make him sad, sullen, and somber. The teenage years may prove particularly difficult when dealing with raging hormones, growing pains, peer pressure, and first loves: All of the latter equal the perfect emotional storm where the Pisces adolescent might feel as if he is getting swallowed up by his own uncontrollable emotions. The difficulties a teen faces may manifest in anger, outburst, and rebellion, but beneath that veneer is still that empathetic, soft-hearted, sincere, and loving Pisces who eventually reaches maturity and learns how to quell emotional storms with more control.
Part of their protective mechanisms is to, one, hide emotions, and two, to come across as non-caring or aloof. Some friends and females might mistake this image as snobby or egotistical. Those friends and females who can see through the façade will quickly identify the Pisces teen and young man as an excellent friend to have in their lives. When grown and in a committed relationship, the Pisces male makes an exceptional father and dedicated, loving, loyal, and deeply affectionate husband. In the role of father, he is amazingly patient, an excellent role model, and nurturing. He might also have a tendency to spoil the children as he is such a soft-hearted individual.
Taurus and Pisces go quite well together seeing as they both love the arts, creative endeavors, imaginative pass times and genuine expressions of love. The Taurean has no problem empathizing with the Pisces male and vice versa. They both like their down time, to relax, but also love romantic pursuits equally as much. Long conversations and an empathic ear come from each partner in this partnership. Likewise, the empathetic, passionate, emotive Cancer makes for a suitable partner for the Pisces male. Both are emotional, imaginative, and have fantastical thinking.
Scorpio and Pisces also make quite a nice romantic couple: One with quite the level of passionate intensity too. When the Scorpio and Pisces male connect on an emotional level, the connection is like bringing together Aphrodite and Eros in the flesh! Whew! Now, we must not forget the potential for the Capricorn and Pisces connection: A pairing that will find no trouble whatsoever discovering romantic harmony. Joining the imagination of Pisces with the no-nonsense practical side of the Capricorn lends perfect balance to both partners.
Now Gemini, being dualistic in nature, and Pisces, with a personality that is almost the opposite of Gemini … just take a look at the icons for both symbols and you can see the opposition in the signs (Pisces =i and Gemini =`). While it’s true the couple might make a good connection sexually, the emotional connection just doesn’t seem to evolve, and without the emotion behind the act, the sensitivity Pisces runs the risk of heartbreak.
Sagittarius and Pisces will also face significant challenges in the romantic department, primarily due to the intensity of intimacy between the two. Yes, sex can prove fun for both, but again, with Pisces needing real love backing sexual endeavors, if the Sagittarius partner is not all in emotionally, the relationship won’t last long.
