In any relationship, trust is the cornerstone. Without it, you can’t build something lasting.
It’s so important because without trust, you’re always questioning your partner and that means you’re never fully relaxed or able to let down your guard.
But how does a Pisces man test you? Let’s take a look:
1) He tests your commitment
Pisces men are hopeless romantics, which means the idea of a relationship will appeal more to them than the day-to-day reality.
To test whether you’re really committed to this relationship, they will push you to see how far you’re willing to go.
Are you willing to rearrange your schedule to see him? Are you willing to move to be with him?
Are you willing to put him before your own family and friends?
Pisces men want to know they’ll always come first in your life.
It’s not malicious or cruel; it’s just their way of checking your dedication. If you pass this test, he’ll know you’re a keeper.
Now: the way he checks your commitment can be different, but one thing he might do is see if you are loyal.
The thing is, there is nothing wrong with testing a new partner a little bit to see if you are safe with them, but sometimes, it can become toxic.
You see, usually, when someone excessively tests their partner, they have some serious commitment and trust issues.
In other words, they’re not sure if you’re going to stick around for the long haul. But Pisces men are different.
They don’t have a problem with testing you, and sometimes you need to make sure they are not taking it too far.
This is why they might test you to see what your limits are, or to see how far they can push you before you say no.
2) He tests your limits
Part of the testing process is making sure you’re aware of his boundaries and that you’re willing to listen to them.
Pisces men have a reputation for being a bit too nice or letting people walk all over them.
When you’re dating a Pisces man, you’ll experience his desire to be as accommodating as possible.
He wants to do everything in his power to make you happy, even if it means going too far.
To make sure you know he’s got a backbone, he’ll test you to see if you’re willing to gently push back when you need to.
He wants to make sure you’re not a pushover who’s going to let him walk all over you.
However, he will also want to see how far he can push your limits before you snap. He might be annoying, but it’s not malicious.
To make sure you understand his boundaries, he’ll test you to see how much you’re willing to listen to him.
He wants to make sure he doesn’t have to fight with you over things that don’t matter.
If you’re in that situation, simply make sure he stays within your own boundaries.
Are you giving him what he wants?
How well do you really know a Pisces man?
The simple truth is that understanding the unique traits of a Pisces can help you better connect with him on an emotional, spiritual and even sexual level.
And if you want to know why he keeps testing you, I have good news.
I recently discovered a super helpful zodiac quiz from renowned astrologer Anna Kovich that will reveal what he really wants from you.
In this free quiz, you’ll learn how to make your Pisces man:
- Pursue you
- Commit to you
- And love you deeply.
I was blown away when I first took the quiz. Just by answering a few simple questions, I discovered shocking details about my man (which have proven to be 100% correct so far).
3) He checks if you’re responsible
Part of testing your commitment is making sure you’re ready for a relationship.
Pisces men are drawn to women who are capable and ambitious, but they don’t want to be the sole providers.
They want to feel like they’re equal partners and that means you have to be responsible.
Pisces men are notorious for being messy and disorganized.
They sometimes lack the ability to say no and always want to help others even if it means taking on too much.
To make sure you’re ready for the relationship, he’ll see if you’re organized and responsible.
If you are, he’ll feel secure in your ability to handle your share of the load.
Now, my tip for this is simply being yourself.
The thing is, if you have to majorly change who you are as a person just so that your Pisces man likes you or wants to be with you, that doesn’t seem like a healthy relationship.
You should be able to be yourself and not have to change who you are.
4) He ignores you to see if you’re patient
One of the common mistakes people make when dating is putting all their effort into the relationship.
They want to show the other person how keen they are, which often leads to stalking and clinginess.
Pisces men are the kings of the “ignoring you to see if you are patient enough”. They won’t tell you they like you.
Instead, they’ll just avoid you and act like you don’t exist.
He might ignore your calls, not respond to your messages, and generally try to tune you out.
This might make you feel unwanted, anxious, and like you’re being played.
It’s not about you; it’s about him and his need to put some space between the two of you.
He’ll slowly start to come around, but only after he’s done his waiting game.
The thing is, Pisces men think that if you truly like them, you will wait around for them patiently.
If you’re not patient enough to wait for them, then you probably don’t really like them.
Now: if I was in that situation, I wouldn’t be interested in this cat and mouse game.
I would tell him straight out, “I really like you and I see this going somewhere more serious, but I don’t tolerate being ignored by a partner, so if that is what you want to do, we might not be a good fit after all.”
This will show him that you are serious and committed, but that you also know your own worth and will not put up with his bs.
5) He confirms that you’re right for him
When you’ve been dating for a while, you’ll start to wonder if your partner is The One.
Pisces men are very indecisive, which means they’re always questioning if you’re right for them.
This is one of the ways they test you. If you’re constantly questioning your relationship, you’re not ready to commit.
Pisces men are notorious for living in the moment, which means they’re not constantly worrying about their next move.
To make sure you’re right for them, they’ll put you through the wringer.
They’ll make you wait for a call or text, show up late for a date, or generally be unpredictable. If you can handle all of that, he’ll know you’re the one for him.
I know, it seems annoying, but that’s just sometimes what you need to put up with if you want to be with a Pisces man.
6) He’ll constantly ask to see your phone
Pisces men respect your privacy and understand it’s important to keep certain things to yourself.
But they also want to make sure you’re not hiding anything from them.
If you’ve been dating for a while, they might start asking you to let them look at your phone.
They want to make sure you’re not in contact with an ex or someone who might be a threat to your relationship.
Pisces men want to feel safe and secure in their relationships, which means they’ll want to know what you’re getting up to.
If you’re not hiding anything, you can let him look at your phone. However, this goes back to what works for your personal boundaries.
Some people are okay with sharing their phone and password with their partners, while others think it’s a violation of their privacy.
Figure out what you want and then stick to that.
7) He will push your buttons
Whether you’re seeing a Pisces man or any other sign, you’ll have buttons that are easy to push.
They’re often linked to your childhood or past experiences and get triggered when you’re upset or angry.
Pisces men thrive on making you passionate and emotional, but they don’t want to hurt you.
Instead, they want to see what buttons they can press.
By pushing your buttons, they can figure out what makes you tick and what you’re sensitive about.
It’s not a malicious test, but a way for them to gain insight into your personality.
If you’re dating a Pisces man, you might find yourself snapping over little things.
That’s just how they operate: they want to make sure you’re emotionally strong and ready for a relationship and they want to know what triggers you.
However, sometimes this can backfire for a Pisces man and he pushes your button so much that it makes you want to date him less.
If you’re in that situation, know that he is trying to figure you out and wants to see if you will get irritated, but if it gets too much, definitely let him know.

8) He’ll want to know where you are at all times
If you’re dating a Pisces man, he might start to question where you are at all times.
He might want to know what time you’re leaving the office and what time you’re coming home and will expect an explanation for any time you’re not with him.
This might make you feel like he’s constantly trying to control you, but he’s really just trying to protect you.
While Pisces men are incredibly loving and sensitive, they’re also incredibly protective.
They want to make sure you’re safe and aren’t hanging out with someone who might harm you.
If you’re not doing anything untoward, you have nothing to worry about. He might be a bit controlling, but that’s just how he is.
However, you can still go ahead and keep up your boundaries. You don’t have to explain yourself if you don’t want to.
You see, communication can go a long way here.
If your Pisces man wants to know where you are at all times, have a conversation with him why he wants to know and how that might make you feel.
If you’re not comfortable with that, explain to him why.
He might not like it, but he’ll respect you for being honest with him.
9) He will cancel plans
Dating a Pisces man is not always roses and rainbows.
In fact, it might be the most tumultuous relationship you’ve ever been in.
Pisces men are notoriously unreliable and flaky, which can make you feel like you’re never able to rely on them.
They might cancel dates at the last minute or constantly be late for things.
When you start dating a Pisces man, you’ll have to get used to the idea that things will never be consistent.
Pisces men thrive in chaos, which means they thrive on uncertainty.
They want you to feel like nothing is guaranteed and that they’re constantly changing their minds. If you can handle that, you’ll be able to weather the storm.
Especially when they are testing you, you have to be patient with him.
However, you can let him know that you don’t appreciate being treated like that.
If he likes you, he will take that complaint seriously and will try to be better.
10) He acts hot and cold
Okay, this has got to be the most annoying test of them all.
A Pisces man is constantly in flux. He’ll seem super passionate one day and cold the next.
You can’t pin him down, so he might be super attentive one second, then distant the next.
He won’t be able to tell you why he acts this way and if you ask him, he might just shrug it off.
If you want to know what’s going on with him, all you need to do is wait and see what happens next.
He is trying to see if you are patient enough to deal with his changes in mood.
Don’t let him walk all over you
Whatever you do, don’t let this Pisces man walk all over you.
Sure, he has his tests and you can do your best to pass them, but try to also uphold your own boundaries.
There is no use in dropping your own standards or boundaries for someone, even if you like him.
