What to expect when dating a Taurus.

The Taurus is a fixed earth sign. Taurus can be grounded, nice, sometimes quiet, and have a crazy temper. Taurus (along with other earth signs) generally like to love on people through acts of service. Taurus (again like other earth signs) take their time with dating. They may be your friend for a long time, and it may take an incredibly long time before they ask you out. With the earth signs, you may want to make the first move, but not in a startling way. Keep things chill and easy. Earth signs are looking for stability, success, and a loyal partner.

A Taurus might shy away from revealing all of their heart pounding emotions. Speaking on how they feel might not be their cup of tea, but they will show their affections through actions. He might bring you flowers, presents, or along with him on an adventure. Taurus, however, since they’re not as used to talking about their emotions, can easily bottle it up and spray out a massive amount of anger. You don’t want to get caught in the bull’s horns. It’s best to create a safe space where they can open up about their emotions and you should encourage them to do so when you get the chance. Taurus may be a rough sign for more emotionally giving signs to date.

Details, Control, and Finances

Taurus can be a stickler for details (like all earth signs). Taurus wants things to be precise, so she may end up coming off stubborn when she wants certain things to be set in a specific order. When a Taurus finally decides they will date someone, which can take an exceedingly long time to consider, the Taurus will give 100% to their relationship. Next step will be to help bring in some confidence to the relationship and round out each other's trust.

Taurus likes to be in control. It’s a zodiac that wants to know it can provide, bless, and be there. Taurus will want to be consulted on all matters, whether it includes them or not. They want to be kept in the loop! They want to prove that they can do things whether it’s building a shelf, learning a new musical instrument, or scuba diving with dolphins. They are goal setters and achievers. They need someone with them that’s intelligent and likes settings goals. Ambition is key to attracting and keeping a Taurus.

Taurus with its need for control likes to be on top of all financial matters. If you are more independent with your finances, you’ll need to prove that you have sound decisions when it comes to money, or else the Taurus may take over as they see best. They are responsible with money, and will be practical with it to a T.

Taurus can be a traditional. They like for things to be clean, for their spouse to be dressed well, and for a little bit of pampering. Taurus is a sensual sign – they like to keep physically fit whether biking, rock climbing, or spending hours at the gym. It’s easy for this zodiac to overwork itself both in mind and in body. Sometimes they need help realizing they have achieved exactly what was needed… and to stop charging forward.

Taurus' Temper

Taurus is most of the time chill and in control of its own domain… but don’t forget that its temper can spiral out of control at times. The personality often struggles with being shy, but through consistency and a good, friendly connection, the Taurus will eventually open up as it feels more and more comfortable. You can easily get to their heart through their stomach. A simple date going out to eat will keep a Taurus happy.

It’s all about security for this zodiac. And so it wants to prove that it is reliable, dependable, and trustworthy. If you let him know his practicality is appreciated, you’ll help the partner know they are doing good in the relationship. That’s what they want to hear.

Tauruses know what they like, and are not wishy-washy. They want to be decisive, that’s their desire. As solid rock personalities, they care about family and keeping their familial connections. They tend to be hopeless romantics.

Conventional vs. Overindulging

Tauruses are conventional types. They tend to like long term commitments, like marriage and children. These types take awhile to warm up to dating because they’re not players and prefer to look for something that is going to last for a long time to come. If a Taurus wants to pursue you, it will. They are typically persistent with their goals, and that persistence also applies to dating when they have found someone they believe makes sense.

Taurus doesn’t just like to provide. It’s the zodiac that likes to overindulge in providing. This zodiac will spoil you rotten as a means of showing their appreciation and affection. They are hopeless romantics and want to keep their promises. They are duty fulfillers, not sloths. For some this may be too uppity, but overall it keeps the relationship healthy. They want to be classy, not as perfectionist as a Virgo, but definitely not like the lovable hippie Leo.

They appreciate the finer things of life. Let them explore food, music, culture, and good aesthetics. They can appreciate a perfectly made chocolate cake, they like when all the towels in the house are clean, they like when things have their place and are In order. They don’t like when things are out of whack. If it’s unstable, the Taurus might not be able to handle it.

Taurus do tend to love wine… and their overindulgence habits can kick in. Either they’ll be an entertaining drunk… or a hot mess.

These sweethearts are genuine. They don’t put up with bull crap. Taurus will stand up for their point-of-view, not necessarily yours. They don’t play the plates of aligning with people for the sake of aligning with people. They stay true to their own beliefs. Every. Single. Time.

Turn Ons and Turn Offs

Taurus is attracted to those who are funny, loyal, and demonstrate they would make for a good parent of their children. Common sense is a plus.

Those that won’t click with Taurus – way too flighty, two-faced, and superficial. Those who are all over the place with their emotions, dress poorly and have bad hygiene. Taurus personalities tend to be attuned to the five senses. If you’re making a lot of noise, are a hazard to the eyes, and smell bad, the Taurus won’t like you. They do like to stay home where things are controlled rather than unstable. Your Taurus is a combination of sensual + sentimental.

They want things serious, not loose. If you’re flaky, you disgust the Taurus. They crave a serious relationship if not more than any other sign. They take a logical approach to get there rather than combusting over with emotions. They don’t just show anybody and everybody their softer sides. If a Taurus is not really interested in you, they may treat you like an object rather than a person. They don’t take to dreamers with a lofty approach to life without practical application nor people who want action all the time. They’re not looking for a big thrill seeker. They want someone who can have a great conversation with them and also cook a good meal. Don’t try to freak them out or get too esoteric. If you’re pushing the boundaries on them too much, they might fold. If you have a flare for life that’s different from most, Taurus is probably not the best match for you.

      Well it’s not at all like this. I have a crush on a very nice Taurus girl but she seems distant and very insulting I’m trying my best to keep happy but I don’t understand why she’s insulting me
