An Aries man playing mind games can drive somebody up the wall. He’s highly competitive and mind games are another way of competing.
If you want to play him at his own game, you need to learn how to play mind games like he does.
It’s not always a good idea to play games with an Aries man. Some Aries men can be angry and violent. You don’t want to get on his bad side.
The best way to play with him is to set up a competition between the two of you or between him and other men in your life.
It’s even better if you make him feel like he’s losing the competition.
You can also play with his head by being insincere, being dishonest, and by not reacting when he tries to make you angry.
