Does my Taurus man like me?
Hey :) I've gone back to this site for reference over and over and I just can't get my mind settled. I'll try to keep this short but can't promise anything (lol).
I'm a Scorpio and met a guy through an online website (not a dating site) a month ago. We began by exchanging messages through that site's messaging system and at the time I didn't think much of it. It got to the point where we would send each other messages almost every (other) hour then he finally asked if I had a Facebook. He found me on there and added me as a friend.
We then used THAT site's messg system and we continued the conversation there. I realized by now that we had similar things in common but didn't wanna allow myself to elaborate on that...I just wanted to think of him as just 'someone'. After a few days of also messaging each other several times a day, he asked for my cell number so we could text.
I waited for him to initiate the texting, which he did the next day. However, his texts (unlike his messages) were short and at first almost frank. He wouldn't reply until much later, too, so I then wondered what had happened. We hadn't been talking about relationships much so I knew I wasn't pressuring anything. This happened for the next few days so I decided to look up on it without having to ask him or anything (I hate drama). I've learned to trust my intuition and it was telling me to just be patient and trust, but I wanted to get a second, third, or fourth...or whatever, opinion.
I didn't really believe in Astrology MUCH, since I thought it was presumptuous to divide everyone into personalities because everyone is seemingly so different. I did know most of the Scorpio description fit me almost like a glove. Anyway, after running into dead ends I decided to look up his sign and see what I got.
I noticed his sign was TAURUS and I got an answer. The staying home and relaxing; the calm, almost gentlemanly speech; the (now) long delays in communication; the financial responsibly; the seeming stability; his family ties...it all fit! Then I looked into Chinese Astrology and his animal seemed to fit as well! Not to mention the compatibility factor I discovered (Rabbit/Sheep). Again, by this time I hadn't thought about a relationship with him but that was changing.
Seeing it all put together like that, plus his personality so far, made me REALLY like what I was seeing, and so I thought I would be up for the waiting game. For the right guy, I'm willing to wait as long as it takes so long as they don't abuse it.
We texted almost everyday (after four or five days of texting I would wait so as to give him a break). I would be the one usually initiating the texting but for some reason I didn't mind. Normally after getting long-awaited and very short answers I would think that person doesn't like me and just stop contacting them. But, again, my instinct kept telling me to just wait and be patient. Plus I REALLY liked his personality so far.
About the conversations: We talked about what we were each doing at the moment, a few family things, all the way to our sexual likes. We've also flirted...a lot. As much as I want to, though, I hadn't asked him about relationships so as not to pressure him. He was feeling low days ago and I told him I'm here for him. We've been talking about meeting up but he hasn't said when; he just talks about us meeting in the future. I know that's a Taurean trait so that lessens the waiting anxiety (to a degree).
Seeing this all written now seems obvious to me but common sense tortures me. I don't give my heart away easily but I could for this man nor do I open up to anyone emotionally as much as I have for him (although he doesn't know this). I've never told anyone I'm there for them even if it's just "understood" but I absolutely mean it.
I guess I'm looking for opinions as much as I am for answers. Does he like me? if so how much? Like I said, I really, really like him and I'm patient enough to wait, even if it takes a year but I don't want this to stagnate and turn into just a friendship (or even FWB) since I don't look at friends the same way as I do love. I don't want to pull a wrong move and scare him off either.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to have love declarations on either side but I just want to know if I'm piquing his interest. If it's true about Tauruses and once they're hooked they're hooked, then I want to know if I'm starting on that path. The fact that he doesn't initiate conversations anymore is torture! I could do it more but not if it turns out I'm bothering him and he doesn't like me as much.
Maybe he's playing games? I know Scorpios do that and I'll hatefully admit I've done that a couple times with people, but I haven't to him, nor would I plan to. I try to practice the Golden Rule. I genuinely like the guy and I find myself hard to believe I'm posting so much. I can't believe someone I've never met in person has brought out so many positive emotions in me. That's the reality, I guess.
My instinct still tells me to wait and trust the Universe but not what the outcome will be. I don't want to be made a fool of. Nor do I want to devote myself so much to someone (I can't believe I'm saying that) who may just see me as a friend or possible hookup. I know both those outcomes will embitter me and I wouldn't want that, not when I've battled that for so long. Sigh.
I would gladly appreciate any Taurus' opinions or insights. I can't believe you people exist btw :)
Thanks in advance.
