Taurus Man: Good Traits, Bad Traits, Love and Sex

Astrology can tell you a lot about a person. For instance, Taurus men are stubborn, independent, and dependable. They cannot stand change. Here is everything you need to know about a Taurus man before committing to someone with a Taurus sun sign:

Taurus Man Personality Traits

Taurus men aren’t an adventurous, spontaneous sign. They prefer routine and cannot stand change. Taurus would rather do the same thing day after day than go on adventures. When they get into a rut, it doesn’t make them restless. It makes them more comfortable. They would rather know what life has in store for them than be taken by surprise. The unknown is too scary to face.

Taurus men make excellent employees because they work their hardest. Once they start a project, they refuse to quit. However, they have trouble multitasking. They can’t focus on more than one thing at a time. Taurus will remain focused on one thing until it’s accomplished, then they’ll move onto the next task. Although Taurus are shy and timid, they are strong inside and out.

Taurus Man Bad Traits

Many Taurus men are stubborn. They are set in their ways and have no interest in changing. Sometimes, they can end up in bad situations because they would rather suffer than go through a transition. Taurus men don’t do well with authority because they want to live life their way. They don’t want to be told how to behave. Taurus think they know what’s best for themselves, which is why they don’t listen to anyone else. Overall, a Taurus man won’t listen to reason.

Taurus men are also selfish and shy. They don’t always say the right thing at the right time. Taurus are brutally honest and never stop to wonder whether their opinion is going to hurt someone’s feelings. Since they like to keep to themselves, they can come across as cold and uncaring. Their shyness also makes it hard for them to develop new friendships. That’s why they cherish their old ones.

Taurus Man Good Traits

Taurus men are hardworking and ambitious. They aren’t afraid of putting effort into their goals. They understand that they aren’t going to reach success without doing the work. Taurus enjoy routine, so they’re fine with working toward the same goal day after day. It gives them a reason to wake up in the morning. It creates a sense of purpose.

Taurus men are reliable, mature, and responsible. When they make a promise, they follow through on it. They are never going to let their friends and family down. Taurus mean what they say, and they never tell white lies. They cannot stand dishonesty. This zodiac sign has strong morals that they refuse to compromise on. That’s why you can always trust them.

Taurus Man in Love

Taurus men are going to take a long time to warm up to you. They are uncomfortable around new people, so they won’t jump straight into new relationships. Taurus would rather move slowly, which means you need to be patient with them. Most of the time, their relationships begin as friendships. They take things step by step, so they don’t end up hurt in the end.

Taurus men value honesty. If they find out you’ve lied to them, they aren’t going to forgive you. Taurus are stubborn, so they hold grudges for long periods of time. They aren’t going to give you another chance like some other zodiac signs. Taurus will simply cut you out of their life. They won’t want to waste time with someone who is capable of causing them pain. This zodiac sign never forgets the past.

Taurus Man in Sex

Taurus men love sex — but only when they’re with someone they love. They aren’t the type to play the field or have one-night stands. They would rather commit to a single person who makes them happy. Taurus want to date their best friend. They’re looking for someone who will make them laugh and make them moan. Anything less isn’t good enough.

Taurus men aren’t adventurous in the bedroom. They like to stick to the basics. Taurus aren’t compatible with signs who need variety. Although they are creative, they won’t want to think outside the box during sex. They prefer to do what works. This might annoy some partners, but a Taurus is happy with a routine. It makes them feel at home.

Dating a Taurus Man

Taurus are searching for stability and consistency. They want to build a home with their favorite person. When a Taurus man enters a relationship, he isn’t planning on leaving it anytime soon. He is committed for life. Taurus aren’t interested in temporary relationships. They’re searching for something permanent. Otherwise, they wouldn’t waste their time.

Taurus men are going to get into their fair share of arguments throughout the relationship. They won’t want to compromise with their partner. That’s why they need someone who is willing to stand up to them. However, they can’t be with anyone too pushy. Taurus don’t want to be thrust out of their comfort zone. They need a homebody who is happy with routine, just like they are.

Trust With a Taurus Man

Taurus men are loyal, trustworthy, and dependable. They take a long time to adjust to new people. However, once they care about someone, they grow extremely attached. They won’t want to leave that person’s side. They’ll want to spend every single day together. Taurus would never risk ruining a relationship by cheating. Plus, they wouldn’t be able to balance living two lives.

Taurus men are old-fashioned and possessive. They will expect you to stay loyal since they’re doing the same. If you flirt with someone else, they’re going to get extremely jealous. They won’t want you to pay attention to anyone other than them. Taurus don’t want anyone else to touch what ‘belongs’ to them. So if you flirt or cheat, they won’t take it lightly.

Understanding a Taurus Man

Taurus men know what they want. However, they won’t always talk about their feelings out loud. When they are first getting to know you, they will keep their thoughts to themselves. You’re going to need to be patient if you want to see the real them. They need plenty of time to adjust before they’ll let down their walls. However, if you stick around, you’ll see how sweet they are.

Taurus men are sensual and romantic. They believe in an old-fashioned type of love. This means they’ll probably want to get married and have children. If you’ve fallen for a Taurus man, you’ll need to put a label on the relationship. They need to know where they stand with you because they aren’t a fan of surprises or uncertainty. If you send mixed signals, it’ll only stress them out.

Taurus Man Likes and Dislikes

Taurus are surprisingly materialistic. They want to surround themselves with beautiful people, places, and things. Taurus are going to splurge on items that make them happy. Although they want a home of their own, they aren’t great at saving. The one time when they’re impulsive is when they’re pushing a shopping cart. Taurus want to live luxuriously. They believe they deserve to be spoiled.

Taurus men cannot stand last minute plans. They need time to prepare themselves for social interaction. Surprises are their worst nightmare. They would rather know what they’re getting into from the start. That way, they can enter the situation prepared. Taurus are terrified of the unknown, so they never want to be thrown in an unexpected situation.

Taurus Man Behavior

All Taurus men are stubborn and fixed in their ways. It’s in their nature to stick to what’s safe. They are terrified of getting hurt, which is why they avoid the unknown. Taurus set plans in advance, and when those plans change, they panic. They always want to know what they’re getting into ahead of time.

Whether you’re dealing with a male or female, Taurus are practical. They’ll want to keep their heads down and get their work done. Taurus don’t need much in order to be happy. As long as they have a loving partner and a safe place to sleep, they’ll be fine. Of course, a few fancy decorations wouldn’t hurt. They are materialistic, after all.
