Dating A Scorpio Woman: 10 Things You Should Know

Passionate and determined Scorpio women are often oozing with charisma. Lots of people want to date this sign, but how many can actually handle it? This is easily one of the most misunderstood signs in the zodiac, thanks to her focus and strong emotions, and there’s a lot that potential suitors might not know about her. Check out these 10 things you should know about dating a Scorpio woman.

  1. She’s smarter than she looks. Scorpio women are among the smartest in the zodiac. Her mind is pretty amazing and she has the ability to think about things deeply and critically. One of the biggest mistakes you can make while dating a Scorpio woman is to assume that she’s not very bright, especially if you’ve only met her one or two times. First impressions don’t count for a lot with this sign, as they like to reveal their true selves only after they get to know someone.
  2. Don’t expect her to admit she’s wrong. If you’re waiting for a Scorpio woman to admit that she’s wrong, you might be waiting a while. Scorpio might not be a fire sign but she is one of the most stubborn signs in the zodiac. Even if she has a feeling she’s wrong, she’s not likely to admit it. When arguing with a Scorpio, it’s best to give her time and space rather than to demand an apology straight away. Though she will come around eventually, it might take her a while to admit any wrongdoing. Plus, Scorpio women are usually so passionate in their beliefs that she might not even realize she is wrong.
  3. She won’t sugar-coat things. When you date a Scorpio woman, don’t expect her to sugar-coat things. Instead, expect her to be brutally honest. Having a filter isn’t Scorpio’s strength. She’s not great at delivering hard truths gently so there are times when you might feel astounded by her harshness. Open communication is the best policy with a Scorpio, so don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself and explain how her words are making you feel, because she might not always realize it for herself.
  4. She’s very loyal. Loyalty might be the single strongest trait of the Scorpio personality. Scorpio women are fiercely devoted to the people they love. While there are always exceptions, Scorpio women tend to be faithful and have their partners’ backs whenever they need them. Of course, they also expect the same kind of loyalty in return and tend to be pretty disappointed if they don’t get it!
  5. She might fall in love quickly. Despite a somewhat hard exterior, Scorpio women are hopeless romantics. They crave intimacy and love getting close to someone. They can also be quite affectionate and love receiving that affection in return. Underneath her outer shell, a Scorpio woman is often soft and cuddly. She wants to see the best in people and sometimes gets lost in the fantasy of love.
  6. Breakups may be difficult. If there’s one thing you don’t want to do in this life, it’s get on a Scorpio’s bad side. This may be the worst sign in the zodiac to have as your enemy. As loving as they are when they like you, they can be that aggressive when they’re not on good terms with you. This is usually because Scorpio women fall so hard that their hearts break easily, and their first reaction is usually a defensive one. So breaking up with a Scorpio woman may be difficult. It’s best to always be respectful and gentle.
  7. She might get suspicious. Scorpio tends to be quite a suspicious sign. Even if you haven’t done anything to make her suspicious, her overthinking and overanalytical mind might lead her to suspect that her date is up to no good. Because of this, Scorpio women sometimes need a little more validation that you do love them and are treating them correctly.
  8. Fights can last for days. Dating a Scorpio woman is intense. Fighting with a sign as intense as Scorpio can be pretty draining. Arguments with Scorpio women tend to last for a long time for two reasons. Firstly, this sign doesn’t like saying sorry or admitting she’s wrong. And secondly, even after the conclusion of the argument, she’s prone to holding a grudge. So it can take a few days to get back to a good place again, if not longer.
  9. A lot of people may be drawn to her. A Scorpio woman is nearly always charismatic. Other people tend to be drawn to her like moths to a flame. So if you’re the type of person who can’t handle a partner who commands such attention just by being herself, this may not be the best sign for you to date.
  10. She’ll fight for the relationship. Everyone knows that Scorpios persevere to the end. Though she’s not perfect, if you are dating her, she will fight for your relationship and won’t ever give up on you just like that. Even when things aren’t working, she likes to stick at them and try absolutely everything before admitting defeat. No matter what problems you have in your relationship, she is likely to do whatever she can to sort them out.
