5 Turn-Offs That Make a Good Pisces Man Leave a Great Woman

Good Pisces men leave great women sometimes—it’s a sad fact, and it’s easy to take it personally. Most of the time, it’s not personal, but sometimes, it can be. There are certain qualities that are just a turn-off for every sign. These tips will save you from heartbreak! 

You’re a catch—you know that! But you also know that even the best man isn’t perfect, and every guy has a list of deal-breakers. 

The Pisces man, astrologically speaking, is quite easy-going. However, he is ruled by the symbol of the fish, which makes him a little “slippery” and hard to pin down! 

And even once you’ve hooked him, there are a few things that can flick his switch right off. The key is to know what those traits are and avoid them if you’re committed to making it work with your Fish. 

Knowing what some of these turn-offs are can certainly help to prevent a good relationship turning sour. Astrology is one of the most powerful tools that can give us the knowledge we need to find—and keep—a strong connection.

These turn-offs may have a Pisces guy doubting an otherwise good relationship… 

5 Turn-Offs That Make a Good Pisces Man Leave a Great Woman

1. No Spiritual Connection

Even though he might not necessarily show it, a Pisces man has a very spiritual soul. Sometimes, this manifests as a love for nature, musical gifts, or an ability to empathize with suffering in others. 

Many Pisces men are not even aware of their own innate spirituality, but it is there! You’ll see it when he drifts away lost in a piece of music, when he’s in the sea, or even when he’s doing daily meditation. 

He’ll need to have a soulful connection with his perfect partner. It’s important for him to be able to share this side of himself with someone who “gets” it. 

If that’s not there, he can’t fully engage. 

2. A Lack of Empathy and Compassion

Some people just aren’t all that empathetic. Some of us are more practical and down to earth and have less capacity to take on anyone else’s problems. 

There’s really nothing wrong with you if you’re not the type of woman who is compassionate to everyone she meets! Maybe you’re kind in other ways. 

However, this may be a deal-breaker for a Pisces man. First of all, he needs a lot of empathy from you. He suffers on the inside, and he’s often a bit of a tortured soul. As much as you love him, it may be hard to keep up an “act” if you’re not feeling it. 

Maybe you would prefer that he’s a little less sensitive, or maybe he wishes you were more sensitive. Either way, he’s not going to be happy if you’re not in tune with him and others emotionally. 

3. No Shared Love of Music

Are you the type of girl who likes to switch the radio on and just see what plays? Do you ever notice what music is playing in the background? Do you have a favorite genre? 

If you said “no” to any of these questions, a Pisces man may find that a bit of a turn-off. 

One of the great loves in most Pisces men’s lives is music. Some of them play music, and some just appreciate it deeply. Many Pisces men collect records or instruments. He likely loves talking about music and may be big on live shows. 

If you don’t at least have some sense of musical appreciation, it’ll most likely be a no-go for a Pisces man. Though he may tolerate it for a while, he’ll be sad that he can’t share his passion with you in the long run. 

4. Feeling Suffocated

A huge turn-off for Pisces men is feeling stifled. 

But the thing is, surprisingly innocuous things can make them feel trapped. Whether you’re just calling to check in or living together, some Pisces guys can quickly feel turned off by someone trying hard to pin them down. 

Some women just naturally need a little more security in a relationship—a guy who’s not going to get anxious when his partner shows signs of needing him, or needing to know his movements. 

That doesn’t mean either of you are wrong, but it can be a problem that can hinder your connection if you’re not on the same page with closeness.

5. A Lack of Imagination

Have you noticed how imaginative the Pisces man is? Some may say that he lives in a fantasy world. He loves storytelling, and his way of escaping the rigors and responsibilities of life is to go into his imagination. 

The Pisces man is a visionary. He wants to see a future with his partner, even if it’s not always a realistic vision. He needs someone who’s going to understand and appreciate his imagination—and not shoot him down for being silly or impractical

You may be the type of woman who doesn’t believe in fairy-tales and prefers to be practical and no-nonsense. That may just be a part of who you are, and it can certainly help balance the Pisces man out. 

But truth be told, if you’re too practical and won’t try to go along with his flights of fancy, he may not be able to handle it. 

These five turn-offs are a good starting point when considering what you are willing and able to bring to a relationship with a Pisces guy.

But the truth is, people leave relationships for personal reasons most of the time. You can’t blame yourself, and you have to remember that sometimes it’s just not the right time or the right connection. 

You should never have to squeeze yourself to fit into anyone’s mold. Compromise and adjustment are important for any relationship, but when you’re no longer yourself, that’s when things can get confusing and tough for everyone. 

So, ladies, have you fallen in love with a sensitive and fascinating Pisces man? What do you love about him the most? Have you noticed what turns him on and what rubs him the wrong way?

  1. Been casually dating a Pisces man for 8 mths.He will txt all week then blow me off on the weekends we could be getting together. Im so confused?? He just sent me a dozen red roses for my birthday and asked me out to dinner this weekend but now I haven’t heard from him…I can’t take much more! HELP

    1. Tessa M Dercks he might be married Or in a serious committed relationship but just trying to keep you hooked and around and have some control as in making plans that not showing which will mean you wouldn’t make any other plans and then sending you flowers I think you need to let that one go His playing games

      1. Hi Cinthea!

        He may not be in a relationship with anyone either. He may just be being a typical Pisces man who is trying to figure himself out and in the process, he ends up being flaky. He may have a lot on his plate and is spacing out but not on purpose. When that happens, he needs to be asked what is happening. If you need more help, please check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

    2. Hi Tessa!

      You need to straighten him out. Message him and tell him that if you two are going out the he needs to be solid on the plan. Tell him it’s confusing for him to tell you one thing then disappear. You need to know the status of what is happening and it’s not wrong for you to ask him for. If you need more help, please check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

      1. Hi Tessa. I am in the same situation you’re in. I dated a Pisces man for 10months now and we’ve never met bc every time he asks me out he never shows up. It hurt me the most on my birthday bc I really thought he’d change but he didn’t. I decided to let go of the idea of being with him. We will meet when fate decides

  2. Hi Anna… I’m lovett
    Dated a pisces guy for over a year now, the relationship was smooth at first, after a couple of months he changed, he became distant, unemotional. Communication was going down the drain
    When i brought it up he just said he has soo much going on, at some point he stopped contacting me. Do you think there could someone else in the picture

    1. Hi Lovett!

      I don’t think there is someone else. I do think that he may have lost interest or his lack of time and capacity of dealing with things is not good. That means he’s feeling as though he’s not in a good position to be in a relationship due to everything else going on his life. It’s hard to say with a Pisces man because they often don’t fess up. When they are overwhelmed they don’t want to have to answer to anyone which is probably what is happening with him. Each time you ask him when you’ll see him, etc… he takes that as added pressure. My advice is to back off a little bit and give him time. Try only texting him maybe 2 or 3 times in a week just to say hi and ask him how he’s doing. You two could get through this if he’s just too overwhelmed. If he’s losing interest though, you will need to try to excite him again. If you need more tips, check out my book “Pisces Man Secrets”.

  3. I can relate to the previous comments so well. Even though I met my Pisces just recently, it’s already going down the drain. Started with texting for hours/days and never feeling a stronger connection before due to so many similarities (I am a Pisces too) and this blind understanding of each other. He was quickly head over heels with his romantic words of how much he already liked me and that this might be fate, yet, the flaking out and not showing up to two dates in a row made me back up, even though he raved about how he was so looking forward to seeing me again. Instead of explaing his flakiness he went silent and when confronted to explain his absence he immediately apologized and reassured his undeniable connection to me, that I am always in his head and to give him another chance to make it up again. Yet, he still couldnt follow through after this to simply call me the next day as promised. I am already pretty much done as I feel disrespected and def. believe to have catched a pisces-player or a F***boy here with a lot of other female options and mind games. It’s dissapointing because of the initial connection and being perfect for each other on paper.

    1. Hi Sara!

      I am so very sorry to hear that it ended up being this way but I do think you should do yourself a favor and ask him what the problem is and ask him if he even wants to make it work. Tell him you’re not interested in playing around, you are serious. He needs to choose if he wants that or not. If that doesn’t work then by all means, do what you need to do to be happy. You are no one’s doormat sweetheart. If you would like to know about the mind of a Pisces man, you should check out my books Pisces Man Secrets.

  4. SO, met a Pisces man and finally found the love I was looking for, he was the most sensual, sexual and attractive person ever. I could not fault the way he made me feel so loved. Then he changed his dating profile picture so I called and asked why did you do that if you are not looking for another. Gave me some bull shit about it was a bad picture and embarrassing, just an ego thing. He stopped texting me, lockdown came in, nothing, so I told him I was moving on, he said bye. But now lockdown has finished I text him. Now he is happy for some no strings attached fun, ie. sex. Does he actually mean that or can I get him back if I see him which I have agreed to do!! Hoping that he can’t actually have sex with me and it mean nothing to him.

    1. Hi Jean!

      Yikes, sounds like he has been keeping his options otherwise he wouldn’t still be on a dating profile anymore. If he cared enough and wanted to be committ4ed with you then he would have deactivated his profile not updating his photo. Your intuition told you it was bs. This new casual attitude… yeah he isn’t ready for commitment. Sorry but unless you’re alright with that then you may want to let go and press on. Keep your options open since he did.

  5. I’m a Cancer, and I was talking to a Pisces guy who liked me a lot; however, at the time, I wasn’t able to dedicate enough time to the relationship, so things ended between us. He asked for a gift back, and I got agitated; I lashed out and said hurtful things about him. Soon after, I apologized. He said he needed time and space to breathe; however, I never gave it to him, and I continued to push his boundaries and suffocate him. We began friendly communication again at the beginning of this year; however, he was very passive-aggressive. He would not reply to some of my texts; he would ignore me when he saw me at the gym, he would say that he might be able to hang out, then cancel on me last minute, etc. We finally hung out in July, but after that day, things seemed strange. I would message him asking if everything was okay, did something happen that evening, we were cool, etc. He didn’t like the constant questioning because he messaged me back one day, saying that I required a lot of validation and that we were not a good fit. As much as that hurt, I know that is not true. Our relationship last year, when everything was good, was amazing. We shared the same sense of humor, same passions, and interests, and we really connected. I feel hurt by what he said and take it personally. Even if I require validation, I know that I can change that, which is not a good enough reason to say we are not a good fit. He moved away to a different state this month, and just recently, he offered to let me stay at his apartment when I visited, but after I told him the dates, he said he’d let me know that day and never got back to me. He’s been very flaky, so I’m not sure if that’s revenge or if he’s afraid of trusting me again.

    I was wondering if he would maybe give me a second chance? I feel like he still kind of cares about me because he hasn’t cut me out completely.

    1. When we hung out in July, we hooked up, and after it, he said all we’d ever be is friends with benefits. Before he left, I wrote him a letter apologizing, explaining to him what happened during our relationship, and expressing my hope that he could trust me again and see that we can be a good fit.
