Ruled by Venus, Taureans are sensual to the max and very connected to their physical bodies. A Taurus must feel physical attraction from the start if a romance is going to take off. But those who want to seduce Taurus first have to get past the formidable external barriers this sign places in front of them. Bulls won’t let anyone see their inner life, and they may seem a little formal and standoffish until you prove your true worth.
Rather than flirting, Taurus prefers a real conversation to trading pleasantries or jokes. And forget about trying to figure out what Taurus wants you to say. This sign senses when you’re not being genuine, and nothing is more of a turn-off.
But even though Taurus may seem placid when you meet in a social setting, all bets are off behind closed doors. Sensual Taurus connects best via physical sensations, and is all about pushing boundaries when they’re with someone they trust.
Virgo: Fellow earth signs, Virgo and Taurus are a couple that stays away from drama—and stays together forever. These two signs may not be showy with their emotions, but they have an almost psychic connection, and each knows exactly what the other needs—sometimes even before their partner knows. The two signs love beauty and are all about creating a partnership that’s as lovely on the outside as it is on the inside.
Pisces: Imaginative and emotional, Pisces can pull Taurus out of their shell and help them tune into their emotions. Taurus, in turn, can help ground Pisces and keep their relationship drama-free.
Capricorn: This cardinal sign has the ambition to match Taurus' persistence. Together, this duo gets things done. A Capricorn life partner may also be a great business partner; Taurus loves the idea of being with someone whom they can trust and depend on in all aspects of their lives.
While a luxury-loving Bull won’t turn down an evening at a trendy restaurant, followed by some bespoke cocktails at a see-and-be-seen lounge, to keep a Taurus interested, you’ve got to be okay with hanging out for the day-to-day. A Taurus is just as happy to have a potential partner run errands with them or spend an evening chilling on the couch as they are going out. While wining and dining is fun, Taurus is more concerned with staying power, and will be impressed if you remember the details of what they discussed on your last date.
Earth sign Taurus is often drawn to fellow earth signs (Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus), which can make outsiders scratch their heads. After all, when they see a Taurus and their favorite earth sign happily spending the day together sans drama, they can’t imagine a successful partnership without fireworks.
But they're wrong! Because even though “nothing” seems to be going on—and earth signs are pretty content just hanging out and doing day-to-day stuff—Taurus and their earth sign lover are building a bedrock of trust between them, making a rock-solid relationship that will survive for years.
Of course, there is such a thing as being too complacent. If a Taurus is always drawn to earth signs, they may find themselves feeling resentful and boxed in. The trick is making sure to occasionally go out of their comfort zone. Taking a vacation, trying a partner yoga class, or going on a double date with another couple can save the romance from feeling too stale.
Have your heart set on a Taurus? In order to make a Taurus notice you, you’ve got to rethink how you flirt. Taurus isn’t into pickup lines or surface conversations. But they also aren’t into you laying your heart bare in your first one-on-one conversation. To win over a Taurus, you need to show off your own amazing traits—but in a way that doesn’t seem show-offy. Seem like a tough order? Here’s how, so Taurus will become loyal to you:
Connect over ideas: An idealistic sign, Taurus is drawn to people who are similarly passionate about ideas, beliefs, or motivations. Talk up your job, volunteer work, or hobby. Even though Taurus seems placid, they’re drawn to passion, and they love seeing it in a potential partner.
Don’t shy away from taboo topics: While you’re not “supposed” to talk about religion or politics with a potential partner, Taurus loves when conversations get real—and doesn't mind if you disagree. The more you explain your beliefs, even if they're opposite, the more Taurus will respect you.
Remember details: When Taurus tells you something, understand that it’s important. Write up some notes after a date if you have to, but remembering the name of that childhood pet or where those siblings live will endear you to a Taurus.
Super sensual, Taureans are all about touch, touch, touch. The best lovemaking sessions with Taurus last for hours, only to start all over again.
Foreplay begins well before the bedroom. Watch the way Taureans touch themselves—a gentle rub of their own arm is a sign of how they want to be touched. Keep clothes on as long as possible. Taurus women love having their hair played with and their feet massaged as they revel in different sensations. Taurus men love the feeling of their ears being played with, their neck being grazed by teeth. This sign loves it when their lover finds seductive spots all over their body.
In bed, give freely. Taurus loves oral attention, and you can trust this will be reciprocated. Keep the pillow talk to a minimum, because it takes Taurus out of the moment. "Mmmm" and "feels so good" are pretty much all you need to say. Taurus loves connecting physically, and can even make a quickie feel indulgent. Shower sex is particularly great, and no Taurus can resist hotel sex. Even booking a hotel in town for an evening will take the night to the next level.
Don’t try to change her. What may seem like a suggestion to you ("Why don’t you try…?") seems like an order to her, and she’ll balk. She is intrigued by example; if you try something, she’ll be more likely to try it as well. Taurus women are very connected to their friends and family, so trying to get in the way or be #1 in her book is a turnoff. Relationships aren't a competition for her. While Taurus bristles at hollow praise, a well-meaning "I’m proud of you" goes a long way and reminds her that you’re in her corner.
Be direct. A Taurus woman cannot stand games, which, to her, read as dishonest. If you like her, let her know. She hates text back-and-forths and prefers getting to the point. If you’re long distance, connect on the phone rather than by email or text, where meaning and messages can get lost. Taurus women value honesty above all else, so don’t say something just to be polite. A Taurus woman hates drama and will go out of her way to avoid it. But if a serious issue comes up, you may have to take the initiative to talk it through. Learning that drama isn’t the same as a disagreement is an important distinction and lesson for Bulls.
A Taurus man may seem standoffish, but deep down, he truly wants to connect on an emotional level. The way to a Taurus man’s heart is through practical, daily gestures; asking about his day or his favorite TV show means a lot. A Taurus man thrives on routine; surprising him with a weekend trip is disorienting, and he would much rather be part of the planning. Taurus men don’t withhold their emotions, contrary to what people may think, but they can take a while to open up. It's key that you don't have a timetable or pressure him. Just let conversations unfold.
Before you share a story, share the point first because, while Taurus men love to listen, drama drives them off. So be wary about sharing details from an office feud unless you’re asking for advice or want his opinion. A Taurus man hates lying and will hold a grudge if he learns that you’ve done so. Double-booked an evening? Don’t fake sick (a Taurus man is likely to show up at your door with chicken soup). Just admit your mistake, schedule an alternative date, and move on.
Yes! While they may be low-key, a Taurean is never boring. The trust you share will run so deep that you’ll be able to access the parts of your identity you’ve been hiding even from yourself. Weekends with a Taurus are epic—even if you’re just hanging out at home, the between-the-sheets sessions are out of this world, and the inside jokes that you share while watching your favorite TV shows will make you laugh forever. A Taurus is your anchor, your rock, and an amazing plus one for life.
Low-key Taurus may not whisk you to Paris, but these everyday moves show you’re a major part in their life.
Loyal Taurus doesn’t like playing games, so if they stop returning your texts or don’t answer the phone, it means there’s a major problem. Taurus is notorious for keeping a schedule, so if they suddenly have last-minute meetings or events or they're cagey about plans, it could mean that they’re not happy with the status quo and may be looking elsewhere.
Pick up, move on, and get over it. Taureans don’t wear their heart on their sleeve and may be back to dating just days after a breakup—even if it was a bad one. But that doesn’t mean they don’t care. Rather, the way Taurus deals with issues is through action, so getting back out there—even if they don’t want to—feels like the best way for the Bull to move on. (Maybe this isn’t the smartest strategy, but that's a different story.)Love Compatibility Game
