The earthy Taurus male has a solid nature and is often a man of few words. Although it may take him a while, he takes in every detail. He is a planner, a thinker, and a doer.

Taurus is also a highly sensual sign. The way you look, the way you smell—even the way you taste matters. A Taurus man will ravish you with his eyes and savor the touch that leads to more intimate things.

Taurus men are definitely "marriage material." They are steadfast mates for whom longterm security is a high priority. They make an ideal provider, a cuddly father, and a sensual lover. With a "bring home the bacon" mentality, even young Taurus men are sometimes driven by an old-fashioned desire to settle down.  

Since Taurus is a fixed sign, the key to a having a successful relationship with a Taurus male is understanding that he's not going to change on a whim. If he's attached to something—be it a thing, a person, or an idea—he won't easily let go. If you're a spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment type, he may seem like a stick in the mud, but if you're in the market for a rock-steady guy to share life's sensual pleasures with, he's your man.

Tips to Winning Over a Taurus Man

In some ways, Taurean men are easy to please. They truly enjoy being outdoors—even if it's just hanging with the guys out on the porch of the sports bar. Give him a few creature comforts, a couple of cool gadgets, and a guilty pleasure or two and he's good to go.

Although he's a "man's man," Taurus is ruled by Venus, so expressions of beauty appeal to him. Many Taurean men are gifted with their hands, making them skillful craftsmen with tools and sensual lovers in bed. They're both soothed and aroused by symmetry and attracted to natural, feminine things.

Curves are a plus, as is showing them off to your advantage with organic fabrics. Taureans have a heightened animal instinct and respond to subtle body language. A languid a flip of your hair, or slowly savoring your hot cocoa is sure to catch his attention.

The Taurus Male Feeds on Sensuality

Taureans are all about creature comforts, so you might want to investigate the moon sign in his birth chart for clues on how to keep him satisfied at home. One thing Taurus men are known for is having a refined palate. Fresh baked goods from the oven are the kind of aromatic aphrodisiac he'll truly appreciate.

An artfully cooked meal will also go a long way toward impressing him. That means taking the time to do it right. Make it a long multi-course taste extravaganza that he won't soon forget, and show that you value quality by spending a little extra on wine or craft beer.

Don't forget to set a beautiful table and be sure to accompany the meal with some pleasant music. The idea is to engage all of his senses.

The Taurus man is a lover of earthly pleasures. Taureans also value the prize of touch. Becoming adept at the art of massage, and engaging in activities that balance the earth element will keep your relationship on a smooth course and prevent it from stagnating.

Things to Avoid With a Taurus Man

The Taurus man has a reputation as "a simple guy" for a reason. He prefers to walk the walk rather than talk the talk, especially if the conversation centers around where your relationship stands or how he feels about you. If you need a lot of verbal reassurances, Taurus is not the guy for you. A Taurean male isn't hard to read. You can find out exactly where you stand by the extent to which he's integrated you into his life. Bottom line: If he didn't think you were worth it, he wouldn't bother.

Whatever you do, don't attempt to hurry him along in his courtship because it won't work. It's also crucial to be straightforward with him, and avoid playing mind games. For instance, if you're thinking about trying to make him jealous, don't. You may find his slow and steady pace frustrating, but trying to heat things up with drama will only backfire. A bull who suspects he's being played will show you his rage, and then be out the door.

Like most guys, he wants to be loved for who he is. He's best suited to someone that accepts and appreciates his calm, stable ways. If you're able to go with the mellow flow and share life's simple pleasures with a steadfast mate, he's the one for you.
