Taurus man personality traits and characteristics

Sexy, funny and down to earth the Taurus man is perfect for those looking for a balanced and "real" partner. He is dependable, patient, sensible and reliable - while at the same time enjoying an unmatched level of sensuality and humor.

"Earthy, lusty, manly, sensual, affectionate, and oozes sexiness!

I am currently with a Taurus man and I absolutely adore him. He's honest, communicates most of the time, is expressive both verbally and physically. Emotionally and mentally stable, smart, and makes me feel special! He is possessive but not jealous. He is also rather dominant but mostly in the bedroom. He's the epitome of what I find truly sexy in a man!"

A visitor comment from one of our message boards, describing a Taurus man.

The Taurus man dislikes and avoids risk and tends to be gentle and tolerant of others, with a strong sense of honor and integrity. Practical and stable, he has an above average level of common sense.

He values tradition, loyalty and stability, and as a result can be highly sentimental and emotional over loved ones, possessions and even routines. As might be surmised from this, he really doesn't like change and can be very hard to persuade! Often the best way to make him change direction is to suggest something months in advance, and repeat it periodically. After long enough the idea will have its own 'stability-value' and be accepted, whereas a more recent or spontaneous idea might not.

Sensible with money, Taurus are often astutely tuned to financial matters and may come across as frugal. In his defense this isn't due to greed, but because money equals security and stability in today's world. It's the security and stability 'safety net' which he values, and not wealth for its own sake. If he already has that security net in place then you'll find he's more than happy to share it with loved ones, even to the point of being overly generous.

Most Taurus men are masters at following through, and will complete tasks which others find boring or too difficult, amongst other aspects making him very sensible, stable and reliable. If that sounds trivial or boring, then it won't when you're ready to start a family!

Later in life Taurus men often enjoy outdoor activities, such as gardening which align to many of their core values - such as growing, nurturing, patience, practicality etc.

Taurus man questions

What are Taurus men like in bed?

The Taurus man is likely to be sexually straightforward, and generally not interested in fantasies, role playing or talking dirty. Why not? Because he doesn't need those gimmicks! Taurus is the most sensual of all the signs, and if anyone can make your skin feel good it's a Taurus man!

Words such as "sensuous" and "wholesome" often sound boring when describing sex, but it's the difference between fast food and a steak dinner... it may not have the glossy picture, but it's a lot more satisfying. Typically a gentle and tender lover, his relative shyness for experimenting in the bedroom also makes it that much more fun to try and corrupt him!... Now that's a win:win!

Are Taurus men kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Taurus men are less kinky than average. Because they have other tricks in mind for you... and you won't complain!

What's it like dating a Taurus man?

Very romantic and loyal, the Taurus man will enjoy sharing what he has with a lover, and will go to extremes to keep that person happy. He's very home loving, an exceptionally good parent, and often an excellent cook. While this package may sound dull in teenage years, as goals change it becomes highly desirable.

On the negative side, as with all aspects of his life the Taurus man values security above all else, and in a relationship this can manifest as possessiveness and jealousy if his lady has a roving eye. Equally it can make a more sensitive partner feel needed, secure and appreciated.

How loyal are Taurus men?

Commitment and loyalty are very important to this man, who is exceptionally skilled at making his loved ones feel secure. If you value integrity and stability then this is the man for you! His attitude may not be everyone's idea of bad-boy sexy, but he radiates comfort, wholesomeness and practicality, and is particularly attractive to anyone seeking stability. Often a particularly appealing choice for single parents.

How to know if a Taurus man loves you?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed.

Taurus man personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
