Are you crushing on a Taurus woman? Good choice. Are you actually with a Taurus woman? Congratulations! We’re an amazingly complicated sign, but totally rewarding if you really put in the effort to understand us. Have no idea where to start unraveling the mysteries of the Taurus woman? Here’s what you need to know in order to have the best shot at making us happy:

  1. We’re practical about what we’re looking for in a relationship. Taurus women are known for being traditional, and we’re looking for the whole package: a long-term relationship that has potential to one day evolve into the dream family. You know, the one that lives in the house with the white picket fence. We want the works.
  2. We don’t like when you keep us guessing. We’re down to earth, and we don’t have patience for your drama. Figure out if you’re in this for the long haul. Then, be honest with us. Tell us how you feel about us, early and often.
  3. We’re fiercely loyal, and we’re looking for the same from you. We’ll be there by your side when you need us the most. In good times and in bad times, we want to be the ones you call first. And we want to know that we can count on you, too.
  4. If you lose our trust, you’ll never get it back. Because Taurus women are so loyal, we can’t understand it when you’re not. And we certainly can’t forgive it. Tread carefully.
  5. For a great date, spend time with us outdoors. A picnic in the park? A dip in the local community pool? Flying a kite in your backyard? Taurus women are one of the three astrological earth signs. Let us feel the sunshine on our faces and you’re guaranteed to get a big win.
  6. We are SO. DAMN. JEALOUS. You went out with friends last night? Which friends? Anyone else? Who did you sit next to? If you’re dating a Taurus woman, be willing to answer for your whereabouts and sometimes undergo the third degree. Have the right answers or risk the wrath of the bull.
  7. We’re creatures of habit. We like feeling comfortable, and that means that we love to have dependable routines. A standing movie night with friends, a bar where we can be regulars, or a restaurant where we can always order the same great dish are all things we love.
  8. We’re not materialistic, but we do value the finer things in life. A good glass of wine. Gourmet cheeses. Silks and satins. Nice jewelry. Physical pleasures and treasures are important to us.
  9. We want you to relax with us. We can smell BS from a mile away. We want you to be your authentic self around us and to be comfortable in your own skin. Don’t try too hard. It’s fake and it turns us off.
  10. We’re sexy in a slow, sensual way. We want you to tantalize us with your touch, all over. We want to be seduced slowly. We want you to take us to the point where we can’t stand it anymore before you give in. Do this and we’ll be grateful forever.
