A Taurus is a true sensualist. Bearing a fixed earth sign, men and women of this zodiac are rooted in their body and its pleasures. If the woman you are dating is a Taurus, she will love to be indulged with things that look, feel, taste and smell good. So if you want to impress her, take her to a place which has good food and wine, where the lighting is muted and the music soft. Wrap her in furs and silks and then see her purr with pleasure.
The ruling planet of this Zodiac sign is the Venus who in classical Roman mythology was the goddess of beauty and sexual love. As a result, physical intimacy is an important part of romantic relationships for Taurans. Not for them the cool detachment of Aquarians or the airy romance of Pisceans. Taurus men and women like to feel love in its most physical aspect and in fact can take an absence of intimacy as a sign of a partner’s disinterestedness. So make sure your Taurus girlfriend has not just an occasional night of amour with you but a lot of hugs and kisses as well. This display of physical intimacy is important for her to feel close and connected to you.
A related aspect of the love life of a Taurus is the need for security. More than fantasies of romance and realms of poetry, a Taurus needs emotional as well as material security in a relationship. This is because a Taurus is primarily interested in the practical side of life. While moonlit nights and romantic serenades are all very well, a Taurus woman will be more interested to know if you are well-established in your career and without any other romantic entanglements. So, if you are serious about your Taurus girlfriend, make sure that she feels assured of your love since the least hint of your wandering attentions could signal disinterest or even unfaithfulness on your part. A Taurus woman needs to feel completely secure in a relationship for her to commit herself in the long run.
Loyalty is a crucial requirement for a Taurus to be happy in a romantic relationship. They are staunch lovers and once settled into a relationship will be comfortably monogamous for practically the rest of their lives. However being faithful themselves, they also expect the same level of commitment from their partners. In their book of relationships, infidelity is crime number one. So if you like a bit of harmless flirting on the side, make sure you know what you are doing. This tendency to put great counter on loyalty can also make a Taurus extremely possessive. If you are dating a Taurus woman as well as have a bevy of girlfriends from the past, decide which you want to keep. It is not in the nature of a Taurus to be able to share a partner with others, especially with those of the opposite sex. As a result, a Taurus may at times give way to intense bouts of jealousy. Your girlfriend may question every appointment of yours on a weekend or doubt whether you were really working after hours on a weeknight. This kind of possessiveness may make a partner feel hedged in sometimes and always on the defensive.
Yet another related trait is the infamous Taurus obstinacy which is hardly surprising considering that the zodiac is symbolized by the Bull. On the whole, you may find your Taurus lover a placid and calm person, happy to be minding her business but when needled into an argument she may stick to her stand with typical bull-headedness, perhaps even when she knows that she may be mistaken. Worse still, when pushed into a corner she may respond with the legendary temper of a Taurus, threatening to crush anything that stands in her way.
The flipside of a Taurus’s love for security may be a tendency towards excess materialism. For a Taurus to be interested in some task or experience there has to be a tangible outcome to it. Your girlfriend might not enjoy an evening at the theater as much as a night at the casino. If you are a person who does not put too much store by material possessions, your girlfriend’s obsession with clothes, furniture and jewelry may seem to smack of superficiality and acquisitiveness. On one hand, she may appear to be a veritable hoarder, stacking up on the good things that money can buy while on the other she may take intense delight in splurging, buying things and sensations just for the pleasure of it. In the thrall of material indulgence, she may be too little concerned with the humane or spiritual aspect of life. But then that is the Taurus for you – a being whose feet are firmly rooted to the ground and who likes her pleasures.
At the same time the grounded nature of a Taurus also makes her take pride in her home and family. For her, the culmination of a relationship is most likely to come with marriage. Having a large house, a lovely family and a lively social life with good food and friends is what most Taurus women dream of. So if you want to hold on to your Taurus girlfriend, pop the question now or she may lose interest in a relationship that does not seem to be going anywhere for her.
Things like loyalty and security are so important to a Taurus because they believe that love is for keeps. If you find your girlfriend taking forever to come to a decision on your relationship, have patience. She may take her time but once she makes up her mind about you, rest assured that she will stand by you for a long, long time to come.
