How to Handle a Taurus Man - 5 Ultimate Tips to Tame the Bull
There’s no two ways about it: Taurus men can be quite the handful. If you’re dating a Taurus man, you already know what I’m talking about. Trying to get a handle on him (and on your relationship) can often feel like a losing battle. Headstrong, independent, and aggressive, Taurus men aren’t naturally romantic and do little in the way of pleasing their spouses.
Instead, these guys are more focused on practical matters and the more primal instincts of life, including food and sex. If you want to get a handle on your Taurus man, then, you’ll have to understand more about this unique Zodiac sign and what it entails for his personality.
In this article, I’ll go over some specific tips that will help you deal with your Taurus guy. Help your relationship by reading the advice below!
Taurus Men: An Overview
Before jumping into some specific tips that can help you get your relationship going well, let’s first take a brief look at a general overview of the Taurus male personality and view of life. Specifically, a Taurus is:
Traditional and Pragmatic
Unlike those of air signs, a Taurus male is traditional and practical. It’s not easy for them to jump on more progressive bandwagons, and they often see no sense in being openminded and openhearted to everyone. Instead, they focus on pragmatic matters to make life better, a manifestation of their fixed-sign status. Being able to satisfy his likes within this domain is the way to his heart.
Taurus men are also possessive and get jealous easily, especially if they are in love. Like a bull, these men can get angry if they see their women with other men and don’t always like it when they hang around with other people. On the flip side, these men are great, sensual lovers in bed and love to give their all to their partners. They are also fiercely loyal when they are in love.
How to Handle Your Taurus Man
Does this sound like your man? Understandably, these personality traits and others that come with the Taurus Zodiac can pose some problems for every relationship. If you’re finding the two of you constantly at odds, considering the following for a more peaceful and meaningful connection:
Taurus men may be lazy when it comes to romance, but they are hard workers in other domains. These guys are locked in on making progress in their professional careers and in their home lives and often put in too much work at the expense of those they love. This constant drive can lead them to become irritable, and often they channel this frustration into an aggression that can be off-putting for their partners (especially if it comes in the form of jealous).
One of the best ways to mediate this natural tendency is to encourage him. Now, I’m not saying that you should incentivize bad behavior. Rather, make sure to complement him on his hard work and what he’s doing right. These men like feeling special and valued. If he believes his efforts to take care of you aren’t going unnoticed, he will be happier to indulge in the more romantic sides of dating. He might even give up some of his own wants to make sure you are satisfied personally.
Don’t Argue or Debate
For smooth sailing, you’ll also want to avoid any contentious arguments or debates. Don’t play games or attempt to prove you are correct but be patient and try to see things from his perspective. Your Taurus man may have a point—he is naturally logical, after all.
Even if you are in the right, you’ll be able to communicate your point to him much better by simply engaging him in dialogue. Don’t get hateful or snippy with him, and when he tries to speak to you, hear him out. Be really interested in what he wants to say. A Taurus is not looking to be reprimanded, especially by his partner. If you show him that you care about what he has to say and are willing to listen, he will appreciate your attention and be much more inclined to hear you out, as well. What’s more, because he’s rational, you can expect him to quickly change if you show him the error of his ways.
You’ll find more success in handling your Taurus man if you demonstrate a degree of independence. While Taurus guys love women who need them, they aren’t looking for a yes-woman who will simply fall in line with whatever they say. Instead, you’ll need to be a well-adjusted, free-thinking woman with her own mind if you want to keep your Taurus man long term. This means finding the best way to express your opinions without being contentious and to show your ability to think through issues.
Scorpio women, especially, have proven to be great intellectual matches for Taurus males. Even if you’re not a Scorpio, however, you can try to impress him by showing a degree of intellectual independence. He will love you more still if you arrive at the same conclusions he does and can articulate why. Similarly, if your independent likes align with his, you can bet you’ve got a deeper hold on his heart.
Just as important, however, is the need to be vulnerable. Taurus men view themselves as protectors, and you don’t want to break this image they have of you. Allow him to do the things he needs to do to feel strong by your side (while not giving up the independence that makes you attractive). This means finding a way to let him take care of things, whether that’s monetarily, socially, or simply around the house. Your Taurus man will enjoy the responsibility of making you happy, even if he doesn’t exactly understand how to do that romantically. It’s also a really good way to make the most out of your time together. Remember: he wants to spend every day looking out for you—and you can give this to him relatively easily.
For this reason, make sure to be as vulnerable as you can around him, even if this is something that doesn’t come naturally for you. I can guarantee one thing: this will really help your Taurus man stay loyal to you and deepen his attraction for you.
In order to stay happy with a Taurus man, you’ll also want to indulge him from time to time. These males are very passionate and sensual lovers, and they constantly want sex. Frequently indulge him in the bedroom, letting him show his aggressive passion for you (within comfortable limits, of course) so that he feels more in control and gets more out of the relationship. You can bet that the right bedroom tricks will help your Taurus love you more under the sheets (though keep in mind that these men aren’t overly kinky like guys of more open Zodiac signs).
You may find that by doing this, your Taurus man is more interested in and willing to indulge you in your own endeavors. This type of balance is central to an effective relationship—and it won’t hurt that you’ll have lots of good fun behind closed doors.
The Bottom Line
Dating a Taurus man can be a lot of fun if you know how to handle him. Fortunately, doing so is easier than you may think. With the advice in this guide, you’ll be able to keep your relationship happy and productive. By encouraging him, communicating with him, and indulging him in the bedroom, you can get the most out of your Taurus partner for a connection that will last long term. Be sure to follow these tips to deepen that special connection with your Taurus love!
