Every guy is different, but if you’re dating a Taurus man, it’s helpful to understand some of his natural tendencies and personality traits. In doing so, you can increase your odds of having a successful relationship.
4 Tips for Dating Your Taurus Man
Taurus is the second astrological sign in the zodiac. It ranges from 30 degrees to 50 degrees of the zodiac and belongs to the Earth element. It has a feminine/negative polarity, while also featuring a fixed modality, quality, or quadruplicity. Like Libra, Taurus is a Venus-ruled sign. Famous Taurus men include Dwane “The Rock” Johnson, George Clooney, Mark Zuckerberg, David Beckham, and William Shakespeare.
While every guy has his own unique personality, Taurus men tend to share some common traits and dispositions. If you’re dating one, here are a few tips you can use to make the most out of your relationship.
- Taurus Men “Show,” Rather Than “Tell”
The typical Taurus man isn’t going to verbally open up right away and tell you every thought and feeling he has. Instead, he’s going to show you how he feels.
Lengthy and intimate conversations about the state of his heart and soul? Not going to happen very often. But he will bring you flowers, cuddle on the sofa, or connect in the bedroom. (As a negative, he’s also more likely to show his anger than verbally express it in times of conflict. This doesn’t mean he’ll be physically abusive, but he can get loud and frustrated.)
- Taurus Men Are Loyal and Monogamous
While anyone can cheat, a Taurus man is not someone you have to worry about very often. They much prefer to be in a long-term monogamous relationship. And once you pair up, he’s going to be fiercely loyal to you. (Often to the extent of confronting other guys who he perceives as threatening your relationship.)
If you find security in a man who is going to fight for you, then a Taurus is a good fit. On the other hand, if you need a bunch of breathing room and independence, this could be a point of contention.
- Taurus Men Take it Slow and Steady
If you want someone who is fast, spontaneous, and willing to try something new on the spot, a Taurus guy probably isn’t your most likely dating partner. If, on the other hand, you want someone who is steady as a rock, this is your guy.
“His sign’s fixed nature means he lives life slow and steady—you won’t get far with Taurus unless he’s seriously into you and he knows you feel the same toward him,” Jake Register writes for Cosmo. “He just needs time to process his emotions, but if you’re patient with him, he’ll show unconditional love and patience in return. Because he wants a relationship with lasting value, it might be months of texting back and forth before he finally asks to be exclusive, but when that commitment is made, he’s fully in it.”
Don’t be super worried if your man slow plays you a bit in the early stages. This doesn’t necessarily mean he’s disinterested. It could be that he’s feeling it out and being very intentional about the dating process.
- Taurus Men Have a Few Turnoffs
Though Taurus men are very easygoing and tend to not let small things get to them, they do have a few turnoffs that will hurt the relationship.
First off, Taurus men don’t get along well with super adventurous partners. While they’re fine doing an occasional adventurous activity, it needs to be planned out ahead of time. (A sudden and spontaneous decision to take a trip to Europe is not a good idea. However, he might love the thought of going to Europe if it’s planned three months in advance.)
Secondly, he’s not interested in a one-night stand or someone who can’t look farther than a month down the road. He wants to be with someone who is okay thinking about the future.
Thirdly, a Taurus man does not like lazy people. He’s driven, focused, and wants someone who has life goals and aspirations.
Enjoy a Happy and Healthy Relationship
Want a happy and healthy relationship? Understanding who your Taurus man is at his core will allow you to uncover the appropriate things to say and do. It won’t always be easy, but your commitment to connection will allow you to cultivate a healthy and long-term relationship that’s mutually beneficial.
