This Is What It Means To Love A Scorpio

Ryan Graybill

Loving a Scorpio means understanding what they don’t say because so much of a Scorpio is shown through actions and not words. It’s being able to read them when they are uncomfortable but they won’t say that. It’s being able to watch their face change when something upsets them. It’s understanding they don’t want to talk about things sometimes because they need to process what has happened first themselves and sometimes they need to do it alone.

Loving a Scorpio means not taking things too personally. It’s letting them walk away when they need to be alone and know they’ll come around. It’s respecting their wishes when they say they need space. It’s understanding they act as both an introvert and an extrovert sometimes. That they might need to be alone after a party to recharge.

You’ll admire them for being the life of the party but what everyone sees and what you know them to be are two sides of the same coin.

Loving a Scorpio means being able to stand confidently on your own sometimes because they don’t respond well to clingy. They don’t respond well to being on a short leash or feeling like they are in a cage. They need their freedom to thrive.

It’s trusting them and how they feel even if they struggle with expressing how much you mean to them. It’s understanding they will never be the affectionate and lovey-dovey person but not asking them to be.

Instead, they’ll make fun of you hiding behind sarcasm and trying to make people laugh. But on the other end of that is someone who is going to need those serious talks about life at 2AM when they are confused sometimes.

Loving a Scorpio means being able to be honest with them because they will always be honest with you even when it hurts. It’s knowing they will be loyal and they expect the same. It’s understanding if someone is their enemy, the person probably did something very unforgiving because Scorpios don’t blow things out of proportion for fun. It’s trusting them even if they don’t tell you the whole story.

Loving a Scorpio means appreciating their good judgment and steering away from those who give them bad feelings, even if they can’t justify why most of the time a Scorpio is right about people.

Loving a Scorpio means being patient with them. Because they are both guarded and jaded. They have a really good heart, it just takes some time for them to show it to you. It takes them time to realize they are even worthy and deserving of their love.

Loving a Scorpio means being able to live with the pressure they put on themselves that might spill over into your relationship. They are very hard on themselves and unforgiving when they mess up. They strive to be the best at everything and beat themselves up when they fall short. You might feel like they expect the same efforts of perfection but they don’t. They just appreciate you there when things go wrong.

It’s sitting with them in silence and being okay with it. Because silence doesn’t make them uncomfortable and sometimes they just appreciate the company.

Loving a Scorpio means appreciating the fact they really are sensitive even if they don’t show it on the outside and knowing very well out of any sign and any person, they love the hardest once you prove you’ve earned it.

When you love a Scorpio it’s going to be the love that changes your life and your expectations for everyone else. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
