9 Proven Steps for Attracting the Stubborn Taurus Man

You've found out that your crush is a Taurus. While these men are certainly a challenge, they aren't completely impossible to tame. Water signs - specifically Pisces or Cancer - usually make the most effortless matches with men born under this sign.

You might find that taming the Bull is difficult if you're a Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and more so a Libra or Sagittarius. But if it's meant to be it'll work out!

If you are looking to tame the Taurus man in your life, here are a few fool-proof steps to wooing him.

  1. Be put together

    Taurus men appreciate a well put together woman. It's best to strike a balance somewhere between thrift-store-chic and Chanel.

    Because the bull is an earth sign, they are very connected to the physical world and material things. That being said they are appreciative of a well-dressed woman but are totally turned off by women who are bad with their money. So try not to show up to your date dripping in Gucci.

    To impress a Taurus man your home also needs to be similarly put together. Just as they don't like a woman who looks like a mess, they won't like a woman whose home is untidy.

    If there's even a chance that your Taurus man might come back to your place later, clean up. They might stay for the night in a messy apartment, but they're definitely not coming back for seconds.

  2. Show your femininity

    Taurus men like a girly girl. So don't be afraid to show it. Don't be afraid to embrace your feminine qualities. Feel free to break out the jewelry and the pink.

    If you're not a particularly girly girl, accentuate the feminine things about your body in a subtle yet sexy way. Do subtle things like wearing your favorite red lip or doing your hair like you're in a Pantene commercial. Wear figure-hugging clothing, push up the girls, and show off your favorite parts of your body.

    But steer clear of showing too much skin. Taurus men like it better when there is much left to the imagination in public, but when you're behind closed doors, you should turn up the sex appeal with your clothing. He will like that you save your sexiest clothing for him when you're alone.

  3. Be direct, ask him out!

    While these men are straightforward and focused in their careers, they will keep their feelings to themselves. This makes it unlikely that they'll make the first move. Here's where you take the initiative, girl! Don't be afraid to ask him out!

    He may seem intimidating - like a bull ready to stampede - but he is not as aloof and emotionless as he seems. If you sense that he likes you, he probably does but is just too shy to do anything about it.

    Ask him out, but keep things simple. Don't ask him out for anything too fancy or extravagant. While he likes material things, he'd rather go for dinner at a more casual spot than a five-star restaurant. Be brave, be direct, and ask him to coffee!

  4. Don't play games

    If there is one thing that The Bull hates, it is playing games. While some people like it when their love interest plays hard to get, the Taurus man does not fall into this category.

    He hates artificiality of any kind. So don't pull any bullshit (ha!).

    If you want to talk to him, talk to him. If you want to see him, ask to see him. If you start to fall for him, let him know. Be yourself and don't play any millennial dating games.

  5. Stay in for date nights

    While going out on the town might seem nice, The Bull will appreciate a lowkey date night at home.

    Tauruses are homebodies. They would much rather spend an intimate evening at home than step outside. So take this into account when choosing what you want to do on date nights.

    Instead of having dinner at a busy restaurant, stay in and cook together. Nights like these will make your man feel comfortable and close to you; plus, studies show that you are more likely to have sex - albeit good sex - after making dinner together. So it's a win-win situation, am I right?

    If you both want to go out choose to go somewhere, you both feel comfortable and relaxed, like your favorite coffee shop or relaxed bar.

  6. Honesty is paramount

    Again, men who are born under this sign do not like artificiality. This includes lies.

    If you want to woo and keep this man, you're going to need to be completely honest - even when it might be uncomfortable to do so.

    Even white lies might land you in hot water with a Taurus man. So keep that in mind when you're dating. Be unapologetically yourself and don't be afraid to express your opinions or innermost thoughts.

    Better to disagree with a Taurus than to lie to him.

  7. Monogomy

    While this might seem like an obvious point, monogamy is extremely important to the Taurus man. So don't expect a second chance if you cheat as Tauruses are one of the most unlikely cheaters of the Zodiac.

    When you first start talking to a Taurus man, you can expect them to quickly stop seeing other people and expect them to want the same from you. While you might think it's still okay to see other people early on, you might want to thin out the herd quickly if you feel a strong connection with a Taurus and want to see it through.

    Additionally, they will not like the idea of any sort of open-relationship or non-monogamy. These men are very territorial and will quickly get jealous if they think you're giving other men too much attention.

    You should expect nothing but a traditional relationship style from a Taurus.

  8. Be sensual

    Bulls are sensual creatures. The men born under this sign connect deeply with the physical and the tactile. Physical attention is a must.

    Sex needs to be sensual. You can expect foreplay to be lengthy and deeply sensual with this sign. When having sex with a Taurus man, you need to attend to all five senses.

    And by sensuality, I don't just mean in the realm of sex, while that's extremely important to them. They need non-sexual physical attention to be happy. Make sure to be physically affectionate toward your man with a whole lot of hugs, kisses, and other non-sexual touches.

  9. Be Patient

    You must be patient with the bull. You cannot expect this man to jump head-on into a relationship. Taurus men are very cautious when it comes to matters of the heart, so make sure that you're prepared for how long it will take for him to slap a label on your relationship.

    And don't rush him. That is a huge turn-off for Taurus men. They don't like to feel rushed, let them take their time.
