Dating a Taurus Man
Dating a Taurus man can be a true pleasure-he’s one of the nicest guys out there, and he’s always willing to go the extra mile to treat his partner right. If you’re familiar with basic Taurus personality traits, you already know some of what you can expect while dating this man. In a steady relationship, he likes to show feelings, act loyal, express things deeply, be in charge, and show his sensuality.
This man is very persistent and loyal. It might take him a while to choose a partner or accept a date, but when he does, you can expect him to give 100 percent. He knows how to pamper his partner and he will go out of his way to do so. This strong loyalty, devotion, and capacity to care also make Taurus men very good fathers.
How to Dating a Taurus Man
A Taurus man loves to be indulged since his earthy nature is flattered by all the delights of the senses. Therefore a perfect evening for him would most probably mean a spread of good food and wine, excellent music and the sight of sparkling crystal dinnerware. This love for the good life also means that he is very proud of the table he keeps and that his social life is likely to revolve around friends who also like to eat and drink instead of spending an evening at the art gallery. So unless you are contented to be by yourself, gear up to play the perfect hostess. The good thing about this is that if you do it right, you can be sure of making a place in his heart and hearth for a long time to come.
Above all, a Taurus man likes his women to be feminine. So if you swore by Germaine Greer in college or have a habit of doing a routine from Coyote Ugly when in the mood, you better start treading a new path. If you want to keep your Taurus lover, make sure he sees you in flowing gowns or lacy lingerie – no leather and whips please! Again it would be a good idea to keep your makeup soft and subtle and wear your hair in maybe long loose curls. His sensual nature demands grace and softness from women and if you think this is the man for you, it wouldn’t hurt to work a little hard towards keeping him.
If you imagine a Taurus lover would romance you by writing poetry about the color of your eyes, think again. A Taurus man, true to his sign, is practical and grounded in reality. He might not wax eloquent about a setting sun or a starry night when you are with him, but you can be sure that the mortgage is in the bank and there is enough put by to splurge on your yearly vacation. This man does not like building castles in the air but knows how best to provide you with a secure and solid relationship.
When in a relationship with a Taurus male, it would be a good idea not to play with his emotions or treat his feelings lightly. By nature he is a gentle and calm person - think of the bull placidly grazing in his yard – but when roused to a temper, he can turn into a fearsome creature. He is likely to leave others in peace if he is left in peace himself. Too much interference with and questioning about his life do not go down well with this person. So if you are serious about your Taurus lover, learn to live with his set ways and routine comforts instead of seeking out stimulation and momentary thrills.
How to know if a Taurus man loves you?
Taurus men tend to be direct and straightforward at the start of a relationship. If he’s interested it’s likely you will know. While generally laid back about life he definitely knows what he wants, and how to get it. He isn’t the type to be overly shy, or to ever play confusing mind games.
Once You Are Dating
When dating a Taurus man, expect him to show his feelings rather than tell you how he feels. He probably won’t start a lengthy discussion related to emotions, but he will show you how much he loves you by bringing you flowers or a present. On the negative side of things, this man will also show his anger during times when he’s not pleased. He can be very stubborn and might refuse to have a detailed conversation about an issue, instead preferring to show that he’s upset by shouting or acting annoyed and indifferent.
If you are still wondering why this Zodiac carries the sign of the Bull, think of the many times you have tried to persuade your Taurus date to experiment with a new hobby or cuisine and failed. Bullheadedness is perhaps the most obvious characteristic of Taurus men. When dating a Taurus man, you may sometimes find him exceedingly obstinate and unable to see beyond his own point of view.
This unyielding nature may appear to you a perverse exercise in stubbornness, but it is only a Bull’s way remaining steadfast in his course and loyal to his beliefs. So be careful of contradicting his words and wishes, especially before company. If you do need to turn him around, use tact and patience and he may just appear less opinionated and more willing to go along with your wishes.
The practical nature of a Taurus man may sometimes make him appear too materialistic. He is unlikely to pursue an activity merely for the pleasure of it, like trekking up to the mountain peak just to get an amazing view of the valley below. He is more likely to settle for an activity like skeet-shooting with a real reward at the end of it. This materialistic streak is also reflected in his over attachment to money and possessions as well as the fact that he needs to own something in order to take pleasure in it.
Relationships As a Couple
While not always passionate or expressive about his feelings, these men go deeper than most think. There are often serious thoughts going on in their heads that they might not express to others, and chances are that not every layer of the man will show up right away in a relationship. It might take time for you to gain his confidence and trust to the level that he’s willing to share these deep thoughts with you.
A Taurus guy likes to be in control. He wants to know that he’s providing for you (even though he may acknowledge that you’re perfectly capable of providing for yourself). As a father, he likes to feel as if he is the head of the family, and he likes to be consulted on all family decisions, whether they directly involve him or not. Be aware that Taurus men also like to handle finances and will want to be in control of money-related matters. The good news is that you can usually trust them with that responsibility, since they’re practical to a T and aren’t at risk of overspending.
These men know a lot about sensuality. They like physical pleasure and enjoy seeing their partners look nice. Since a Taurus man may not directly ask for what he wants, you could try offering him a massage or a long, deep kiss. Activities that keep you both physically active are also a good bet, so try hiking, winter sports, jogging, or just taking a long walk.
