If you’ve ever dated a Taurus, you know what it’s like to be consumed by a man who savors the realm of the senses. Taurus the Bull is a force to be reckoned with; his timid demeanor should never be underestimated. As the most sensual sign of the zodiac, Taurus’ appeal is his even-keeled approach to life—and sex. Never one to besiege the object of his affections like his predecessor, Aries, this sign is slow to act. However, while most women appreciate this gentle bull, his passive and complacent ways can be infuriating.
Truth be told, Taurus is lazy. Don’t misunderstand; this fixed Earth sign has unquestionable staying power, and moves at his own pace with discretion. His ability to work toward a long-term goal is his greatest and most admirable strength. But when it comes to dating and courtship, Taurus doesn’t really want to have to put forth a whole lot of effort. In fact, his ideal mate is a take-charge individual, both dominant and nurturing. Taurus essentially wants to marry his mother—Freudian ickiness aside—and would be best suited for a Cancer or even his opposite sign, Scorpio.
