Scorpio relationships

Partners of different zodiac signs bring out slightly different facets of the Scorpio personality. Some elements however are fairly common to all Scorpio relationships.

Common features of Scorpio relationships

Many people are initially wary of Scorpio relationships. As a practicing relationship astrologer I often have clients wanting to know if their new Scorpio partner is going to start being mean to them later. The fact is that (if treated well) Scorpios are amongst the most genuine and loyal partners of any sign, and also amongst the most nurturing. The only time that problems arise is when a partner can't or won't commit to them. The only bad thing about Scorpios is that they give you everything, and they want the same in exchange.

Starting Scorpio relationships

Scorpios don't respect a weak or wishy washy lover, preferring someone that knows their mind and heart. Female Scorpios will likely be very good at making you come to her, being the traditional vixen that she is. Male Scorpios will be very forward and let you know exactly what they want, whilst helping themselves to it.

Be prepared for intense love making and intense conversation. Not likely to just have casual one night stands, Scorpios are quite traditional in their intimate relationships, preferring to be in committed unions. They are devoted and fiercely loyal to their partners. Being excellent listeners, you will find yourself sharing intimate details of your own story with them even if you are normally reserved. Don't worry, your secrets are safe, as their loyalty prevents them from spilling any beans.

Day to day Scorpio relationships

Although typically Scorpios get accused of being controlling, they are really just trying to make everything okay for everyone. Scorpios are very eager to please their partners and are very loving once they love you. They will literally sacrifice themselves to ensure your happiness often putting your needs above their own. This applies in sex as well. Never prudish, you can feel free to get down and dirty with your Scorpio as nothing is likely to shock them. Bring on the fantasies! They eagerly explore nuances and details of love and love making and will likely love to hear details of your sexual experience. Simply as a way of getting to know you more.

Although in social situations Scorpios may appear at ease and vivacious, privately they'd rather just be alone with you. They prefer "one on one" quiet dates where the conversation can run freely and without interruption. Fireside dates, quiet dinners at home or in intimate restaurants, or a scenic drive are easy dates that will entice your Scorpio. Basically they need less fluff as they are mostly just interested in YOU, not the surroundings. They can quickly see through BS so if you claim to know about something, you better actually know about it.

Their memory and attention to detail can be frustrating especially if you are prone to stretching the truth a bit. Expect to get your bluff called by your Scorpio. This can all be in cheeky fun, but can turn serious if they sense you are outright trying to mislead them. On the flip side, their memory and attention to detail will make you feel a very unique sense of being cherished as they seem to know you so well and can anticipate how to make you happy. You won't be taken for granted when a Scorpio has given you their heart.

Scorpio relationships in the long term

The intense attention of Scorpio in relationships can be very alluring and enticing and frankly irresistible. But take caution in not betraying your Scorpio, as they have very high standards and are less likely to quickly forgive and forget than most signs. Love, trust and loyalty are things that they give freely, but if you err against them, they are likely to really make you earn it back, IF you ever even get that far.

Scorpios are never wishy washy and are very much "all or nothing", in love and life. This is highly beneficial for those that hate mind games and prefer to know exactly where they stand. Scorpios are very articulate and great conversationalists which adds to their allure. When in comitted relationships, they will want to know everything about you and will pierce you with their 'all knowing' eyes and fall deeper for you the more genuine you are in sharing details of your life.
