The Taurus man is an old-fashioned type when it comes to love, a complex combo of toughness and sensitivity. To the outside world, he may appear completely composed, but inside, he's a hopeless romantic looking for that "love of a lifetime." His needs are basic: he wants a stable, loyal partner who's affectionate and classy. Why, then, does it seem so hard for him to find?
For one thing, Taurus hates change, and that's why he doesn't just throw himself into relationships. Once he's in, he's in. Predictability may bore some, but for him, it simply provides a canvas on which to create a lovely twosome. Taurus is not a "player" sign. When a possessive Taurus finds his match, he plays for keeps. Sure, he's got not shortage of dates and admirers. Ruled by beauty-planet Venus, attractive Taurus is easy on the eyes. He loves romantic trappings like fine restaurants, flowers, and gourmet chocolates, and will happily give these gifts without falling in love. Nonetheless, it takes a long time for him to give away his heart—and only the strong will survive the wait!
Wise Taurus learns early in life to hold out for the very best. In his world, that means someone with class, taste, good manners and style: someone who keeps the peace, but won't get crushed by his natural strength. Although he hates drama, he also needs a mate who brings her own spirit and flavor to the mix. Just because he likes stability, doesn't mean he's boring. The right woman for him will get this. His public image is important to him, so his partner must never embarrass him in a social setting, or it's curtains for that relationship.
The driving forces of his sign are loyalty, comfort and persistence. For him, a relationship is like a project, and he'll remain attentive, self-sacrificing and caring towards his partner. There's no stopping him when it comes to getting — and keeping — what he wants. Dependable and reliable, he needs to be needed. He's quick to offer his help when you're behind on errands or need a hand with a practical matter. Be careful, however, because if he senses that he's gone from king to royal subject in his eyes, you could have a raging bull on your hands. Being taken for granted is a common complaint among Tauruses. Sometimes, his helpful nature can just be too ever-present. You may have to work at keeping the dynamic tension alive in a relationship with him by insisting on some independent activities. Abandonment issues are a Taurus Achilles heel, however. He'll need lots of reassurance to quell his fear that you've forgotten him when you spend a night out with the girls. This is a man who values his possessions highly, so if he counts you among them, you may feel as if you have a bodyguard rather than a boyfriend.
Although he's got a soft spot for his sweetie and offers great generosity, he's got his limits. Anyone who takes him for granted or crosses his boundaries will have a charging Bull to deal with! His mates quickly learn that kindness does NOT equal weakness. Underneath that charm is a man of steel! He IS a workaholic as much as he is a lounger. Be careful what you wish for if you're craving space. When office life gets busy, you could feel like a temporary widow.
He has a strong nesting instinct, and creating a comfortable home with his mate tops his list of fantasies. Ruled by Venus, he's incredibly sensual. Touching, holding hands, and kissing are an all-night affair for him. He loves to be pampered. Fine dining is one of his favorite activities. Couples massages are a big turn-on for him too. Indulging in anything luxurious with his love by his side gives him those warm, fuzzy feelings he craves.
