Have you ever dated someone who opted for the utmost, top of the line, best of everything — food, wine, music, whatever? Not that you really cared. After all, they were more than happy to share in those things with you. Were they dependable and always there when they said they would be? Were they tough on the outside, but a big softie romantic and all about sensitivity once you dug a little deeper?
When it came time for arguments, did they last a little bit longer than usual? Because, come on, once they set their mind on an idea, there was no way in hell that they would change it? They were just too damn stubborn. Well, chances are, they were probably born between April 20-May 20 under the sign of the bull. Yes, you’ve dated, or are dating a taurus.
1. They know what they like.
Tauruses aren’t the wishy-washy types. There’s a reason why they’re so well known for their stability.
They’re very set in their ways. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re boring. They’re totally down to try new things … they just need a little coercing, and from the right person. Introduce the idea gradually, or let them have some kind of say in the agenda. Bribe them with food and drink, “Make sure it’s comfortable – for example, if you want them to attend an out-of-the-way festival, you can also book a night at a five-star hotel or a charming B&B.”
2. Tauruses are family oriented.
Tauruses are all about creature comforts. They’re very homey people who value a happy home life with a stable relationship and partner. Tauruses love their families and will do everything they can to protect them.
3. Tauruses LOVE love.
They’re hopeless romantics who tend to search for their great “love of a lifetime.” Tauruses just want partners who are stable, loyal, affectionate, and classy. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re relationship whores. In fact, they don’t just throw themselves into relationships. They like to take their time and feel the other person out. But once they’re in, they’re completely in, one hundred percent.
4. Tauruses are dependable.
If there’s anything you need to know about a Taurus, just know that they’re not only stubborn, but stable and dependable, as well. When a Taurus says they’ll be there, they’ll be there.
5. Tauruses are total marriage material.
They’re not a “player” sign. In fact, if they do play, they play for keeps. They’re loyal and devoted – as long as you are. According to the AstroTwins, Taurus men in particular are all about the “conventional lifestyle,” complete with marriage, kids, and the whole she-bang.
6. Tauruses are persistent.
While Taurus women love being chased and the attention and adoration that comes with it, Taurus men, on the other hand, are a bit different. As the AstroTwins wrote in their book, Love Zodiac, if a Taurus man wants to pursue you, he will. And against all odds, at that.
7. They’re passionate and sensual.
They’re ruled under Venus, the goddess of love, so that obviously has to count for something, right? Your Taurus is all about the foreplay and the postcoital spooning. They’ll kiss your neck and surprise you with a sentimental gift. But since they’re kinda wired to be traditional and often fine just sticking to a tried-and-true routine, they may run the risk of falling into sex ruts. You may have to be cool with nudging them to shake things up from time to time.
8. Their sense of humor is kind of immature, but they make it look cute.
A subtle or satirical joke isn’t really a Taurus’s thing, but they’ll probably lose their damn mind over YouTube videos of people randomly faceplanting. They’re really just kinda silly and playful, which can be endearing.
9. They value their personal relationships.
Relationships aren’t simply fun and games for Taurus people. They value harmony in their personal lives and work their best to keep their partners happy. They’re true romantics at heart, sentimental, and sure, maybe a tad bit overprotective and possessive, but that’s just shows how much they care.
10. They are damn classy individuals who appreciate the finer things in life.
They have an appreciation for art. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of not just romance but creativity, so someone born under this sign has an appreciation for all the beautiful things — art, music, dance, etc. Oh, and don’t be surprised if they’re surprisingly psyched about something like watching HGTV or going to the natural history museum.
11. They are grounded.
Because Taurus is an earth sign, it means they’re very grounded. But that doesn’t mean that they don’t enjoy the simple things, like just spending time together. They enjoy life’s simple pleasures and just spending quality time with their partners is more than enough for them.
12. Tauruses are genuine people.
There’s none of that fake BS here. If you want someone who’s confident in their beliefs, their opinions, and who they are as an individual, then you’ll be sure to find that in a Taurus. If you’re looking for someone who can easily change or who tends to agree with you about anything and everything then look elsewhere, because Tauruses change for no one. For the most part, anyway. Besides, who says little debates here and there can’t be fun?
