Earthy, ribald, and lusty, the Taurus man grabs life and love by the throat and laps it all up. Extremely sensual and physical, he responds better to a gentle touch than to a cracking whip. A Taurean man’s prudence seems to desert him at the first sign of love. Galloping headfirst into love and relationships, he is a man in love with love. His temper is a symptom of his deep underlying passion, if you can get beneath that thick hide of his.
The Bull is no good at love games. He will take things at face value, so unless you really are trying to distance yourself from him, don’t suggest a “break” or an “open relationship.” These words don’t exist in the Taurean’s vocabulary.
Ruled by Venus, the Taurus man demonstrates a surprising romanticism when in a relationship, although his form of romance is of a simple variety. He will choose a partner who is his best friend, herd mate, and lover to spend the rest of his life with. Promises are unbreakable oaths to the Taurus man, and he will do his best not say anything he doesn’t mean. Dependable as he is, he would never promise the earth if he knew he couldn’t deliver it.
He enjoys the consistency and closeness of being in a relationship and will persevere in trying to make things work. He does not give away his affections lightly nor is he an inconstant lover, flitting from affair to affair. The Bull chooses his territory, sticks to it, and will happily put out to pasture there until the end of his days.
The rampaging Bull cuts a broad swathe through his admirers. Those who are partial to old fashioned manners and like being treated politely flock around the Taurus man. Gentle with his lovers, he is a strong and sensual stud in the bedroom. Sex is like fine art, to be applied, enjoyed, and perfected. There is no hurry when in bed with a Taurus man. He plays his lover like a musical instrument, drawing out the most beautiful notes, and paying attention to their needs and wants.
He is generally considered most compatible with Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, and Pisces.
Taurus in Love
The bull loves treats and will respond to sweetness and light much better than to whips and shackles. A Taurus woman is true and steady and may appear a little undemonstrative. Nothing could be further from the truth! Remember that fiery temper of hers? There is passion lying underneath the calm and stable facade, she simply has not unlocked it for the entire world to see. Taureans can sometimes be in love with blinkers on and be completely focused on their love life. Passionate and always tender, Taurus Woman is seductive and will pamper her partner both in the bedroom and out of it. She will take her time in a relationship and needs to be wooed. She wants to get to know her partner and will not commit until she is sure she has made the right choice. She does get jealous, but only if really provoked.
Affectionate and sensual, a Taurus woman enjoys the romantic thrill of courtship, but rarely rushes into a relationship. Her relationships may take quite a while to get off the ground, because she thinks carefully about all the ramifications of intimacy with her partner before she commits herself. Some Taurus women can date someone for some time, and her partner feels everything is going well, when in fact she may not have made up her mind. She is very generous with her partner, and although Taurus is known for being somewhat self-centered, she in fact often puts the needs of someone she loves above her own. She doesn’t require as much excitement as other women, and she offers a relationship that is constant and comforting. It’s very difficult to truly anger the Taurus woman, as she has a way of shrugging off things that others might react to negatively. She is nurturing and cares for her loved ones in a surprisingly romantic way, given her logical way of dealing with the rest of her life. However, she has her limits, and her loved ones must learn what these are, and strive to never push beyond them. The gentle, thoughtful demeanor they have grown accustomed to can transform into a driving force of fury.
When it comes to attraction, Taurus’ secret weapon is serenity. There is a composed, peaceful, and patient quality to Taurus that is unmistakable and irresistible to many. Potential suitors sense that she’s solid, never desperate or overly needy, and genuine. More often than not, Taurus women are described as “real” or even “the real thing”. She’s not flashy, yet she makes a statement. She’s sensual and feminine yet firm and strong-minded. There’s an extremely soothing aura surrounding Taurus that is really quite rare in a world seemingly filled with stressed-out people. It’s easy to trust a Taurus, and to count on her.
In a pinch, Taurus will rarely engage in a messy argument, although she does have a legendary temper if completely provoked. If cornered, her refusal to “go there” might be a little frustrating at first, but usually wins her “the argument that never was”. Why fight with someone who seems above it all? You’ll only wind up feeling silly and appearing excessively emotional in contrast. She is good at walking out if she feels you’re blowing things out of proportion. She firmly believes that the best revenge is silence. And, she’s probably right. She’s expert at scoping out a new person in her life, although she rarely comes across as the type of person who questions and doubts. Instead, she seems to be a great listener. While she’s rarely gushing, she offers solid advice and support. Taurus takes quite a bit of time to let a lover into her heart, but when she does, she can be unstinting. She’ll defend you to death, if the need arises. In fact, she comes alive when she needs to defend or protect a loved one.

She likes a lover who takes time to savor the moment, and doesn’t think much of a person who thinks foreplay is something you do on the golf course. She is often content with repeating the same things in bed, but before you decide that’s boring, remember that contentment means she’s not going to rush out and find a replacement if you’re going through a dry spell. She may not be the one to suggest a new position, but she’s usually very open to the idea if you do.
Her appreciation of the simple pleasures in life, combined with legendary stamina, is a real plus.

She is looking for her ideal partner, and wants a steady, romantic, and fulfilling relationship.
Words don’t move her in quite the same way as actions do. She finds it hard to get over a failed romance, but as a romantic at heart, soon gets herself back into the game again.
