Dating A Taurus Man: 10 Things You Should Know

Taurus men are known for their patient, tolerant, and agreeable nature. While also famous for being the most stubborn sign in the zodiac, they make understanding and supportive partners that you can always rely on. However, Taurus isn’t the perfect sign to date for everyone. Read on to find out what you need to know about dating a Taurus man.

  1. He’s super romantic. Taurus is a sign that’s synonymous with practicality and logical thinking. But that doesn’t mean this air sign is above being romantic. He’s a natural charmer and loves to sweep his date off their feet. According to Cosmopolitan, you should be prepared to swoon when dating a Taurus guy, since he’ll probably try to impress you using every tool at his disposal.
  2. He’s a homebody. Being earth signs, Taurus men are typically down to earth. They prefer to be grounded and stable rather than to float freely in the wind. As Astrology Bay explains, that generally translates to him being a homebody. When dating a Taurus guy, you should expect him to plan a few catch-ups at home. He’ll also want to spend a lot of time just relaxing, rather than on adventurous and spontaneous dates.
  3. He’s got a fierce work ethic. Taurus is one of the hardest workers in the zodiac. Like the other air signs, Taurus places a lot of importance on his job. Whether he has the career of his dreams or is still working towards his goals, he’s not afraid to put his all into his job. This can make him seem like a workaholic at times. And if you try to come between him and his work, he might feel backed against the wall. It’s best to let him utilize his work ethic, since it feels natural to him.
  4. He follows through with his promises. If there’s one sign you can actually rely on in the zodiac, it’s Taurus. This sign is where he says he’s going to be, and does what he says he’s going to do. They’re usually exceptionally trustworthy and know how to keep secrets. While they have their faults in other areas, reliability is hardly ever a problem.
  5. He’s stubborn. Despite his many amazing traits, the Taurus man has a reputation for one negative trait in particular: stubbornness. There are exceptions to the rule, of course. But generally, Taurus men tend to put their foot down and leave it there. Good luck trying to convince him to change his mind once he has made it up. He’s also hardly ever the first to apologize or admit he’s wrong.
  6. He prefers old friends to new ones. Taurus can be quite set in his ways when it comes to many areas of life, including his friendships. He prefers to invest in old friendships that he already knows he can rely on. He can make new friends too, as he’s super agreeable and sociable. But he prefers to keep his close friends closer rather than letting new people in. As his date, this might mean that you struggle with getting him to socialize with your friends when he’d rather spend time with his own.
  7. He’ll give you a reality check. There are other more brutally honest signs out there than Taurus (hi, Virgo). But Taurus does prefer to call it as he sees it rather than coat things in sugar. If you like to date people who’ll tell you what you want to hear, Taurus might not be your guy. While he does have a way of delivering the truth gently, he still tells it like it is. This often means that you’ll get constant reality checks when you’re dating him, which can be difficult to accept.
  8. He appreciates the finer things in life. Along with his stubborn nature and practical mind, Taurus is also famous in the zodiac for his exquisite taste. He appreciates the finer things in life and can even be a tad materialistic at times. He’ll also probably dress well amd keep up with the latest accessories. As his date, you can usually expect generous gifts and amazing restaurants. But keep in mind that he expects to be doted upon in return.
  9. He can take time to process his emotions. Taurus doesn’t like to rush anything. It can sometimes take him a while to understand how he’s feeling, which can be frustrating for his date. Because he won’t talk about his feelings until he’s sure of them, and that usually takes ages. For example, he doesn’t tend to say “I love you” until he’s really sure that he feels it. And that can leave the person he’s seeing running out of patience.  It’s best not to rush this sign, as that may make him dig his heels in. Instead, try to let him move at his own pace without pushing him.
  10. You might end up doing most of the work in the relationship. If you like to date people with dominant personalities, Taurus might not be the guy for you. He tends to be more passive and doesn’t always take initiative in the context of his relationship. While he can surprise you with his romantic tendencies, he’ll probably leave actually organizing dates up to you. If there’s a problem that needs to be addressed, you will likely need to be the one to bring it up. When living with a Taurus, you might also have to constantly remind him to do things around the house.
