Early Stages Of Dating A Taurus Man — And How To Make Progress?

by Anna-Kovach, relationship astrologer
Take a look at what can you expect in the early stages of dating a Taurus man. And how can you assist in moving the relationship forward? 

If you’ve started to date a Taurus, then the good news is that the hard part is over! A Taurus is not one to agree to date someone all willy-nilly, so first off take a deep breath and pat yourself on the back!

What can you expect now? And how can you assist in moving the relationship forward? 

I’m here to advise you on some tips for understanding the Taurus in a relationship and what their take on relationship progression is. 

If you want all the details from my experience as a Relationship Astrologer, keep reading and I’ll give it to you straight… no bull!

Set Up A Routine

A Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, and all you have to know about that is that this guy is the definition of consistent. You can set your watch by his movements and predicting his next step is a breeze. 

He’ll be interested in establishing a routine quickly because he loves to live in a world where he knows what to expect. Avant-garde isn’t his style. 

The routine may look something like a predictable good morning text, a few check-ins throughout the day, and then getting together at night to settle in with a good show and some wine. A text that says “hey babe, how about we stay in tonight?” reads like a sext to a Taurus!

Is it monotonous? Maybe. Is it a sign that he’s settling into the new relationship for the long haul? Absolutely. Involving you in his daily routine is a sign that he’s committing to you because he doesn’t like changing his routine, which implies he’d like to keep you around!

Developing a taste for the simple pleasures and getting comfortable with the same-old-same-old is going to elevate your relationship in the mind of the Taurus, so go ahead and get comfy because routine is the Taurus’ love language. 

Slow & Steady

Early Stages Dating A Taurus Man

If a Taurus was a character from a fable, he would have been the tortoise from The Tortoise and the Hare. He’s in no hurry to get where he has to go because he has full knowledge that all things come with time. 

This attitude certainly rolls over into the relationship realm for them, and you’ll notice this fairly quickly. Every step is going to take longer than many people would appreciate. The first time you go to his house will be farther into the relationship than usual, first kiss, first time, and first sleepover will all take time. 

This is no indicator that he isn’t interested in you, it’s just how he is. He is not easily shaken by the intrigue of romance; he is an immoveable force. He’ll keep doing things pretty much the same way he did before he met you for quite a while after you start dating. 

My advice for this is to work with it. Like I said, you won’t be changing this aspect of him so easily. The best approach is to accept it and move at his pace.

The bright side is that if a Taurus man started dating you in the first place, then it is almost certainly true that he intends on crossing all relationship milestones with you (just at a reduced speed!). 

He doesn’t play games so he likely just wants to make sure that you’re as serious about the relationship as he is!

He’ll Act Out How He Feels

Early Stages Of Dating A Taurus Man

A Taurus isn’t the best at communicating his emotions since emotions aren’t really in his comfort zone. He is a more practical, and physical sign, so you should be looking at how he’s reacting to your advances if you want to gauge his enthusiasm for you.

If he’s texting you every day, asking to hang out, and just generally attempting to get closer to you in tangible ways then you can rest assured that your Taurus is totally invested.

If he’s not answering texts right away, acting wishy-washy towards the whole relationship, or not acting totally enthused when you say you want to hang out then that says just as much… it says he thinks this relationship is cringeworthy.

He isn’t trying to hide how he feels from you, it isn’t his style. But showy emotional displays are also not his approach. At the beginning stages, just pay attention to how he acts to get the full picture of what’s on his mind. 

The actions of the Taurus speak much louder than words. If you understand his interest levels then you can note where he’s at emotionally with you. 

He’s Territorial When He’s Serious

Not sure if he wants to progress? Ask yourself, is he showing signs of getting just a little jelly when he knows you’ll be around others? If so, that means things are getting serious for him!

Taurus’ are ruled by Venus, planet of material goods and luxuries. As a result, Taurus’ have just a touch of “that’s mine!” syndrome, like a grabby toddler. 

So, when he is showing signs that he’s getting jealous that can mean only one thing. He considers you to be all his! And this is a great sign because it means that he is likely going to be okay with progressing to new stages very soon. 

He’ll want to stake a claim to what he “owns” metaphorically. Don’t worry, he knows he doesn’t really own you. He just needs to make clear that you’re his girl!

If you notice the protective gestures then it’s time to bring up the next step for you two, whatever that may be.

On that note, when you feel it’s time to move on and he’s showing all the signs he is ready, it’s important to keep in mind that even if he is ready it’s still not going to be a speedy process. 

He likely won’t be the one to suggest the next step since reliable Taurus has a tendency to get stuck in the okay-ness of the moment rather than change something up and risk losing what he likes about the situation as it is.

So, if you’re interested in moving in together, getting engaged, having a baby, or any other step in the relationship, then you’ll have to let him know that’s what you’re interested in early. 

The Taurus needs time to let this thought marinate for a while before he makes a solid move. Every speed is “low and slow” with a Taurus. However, this means that when the time comes and he does take action it’s because he evaluated all the consequences and decided it was still worth it to commit to you.

So, the best move here is to plant the seed and then sit pretty while it grows to maturity in his mind. Don’t prod too much, just check in to see where he’s at with the thought once in a while.

  1. I have been seeing this Taurus man for 3 months. He is a perfect gentleman but I am not sure about what he wants? Been to his place couple of times but we have not even kissed nor held hands. I am confused and I am the type of person who is also afraid to ask and talk about it. Some advise please?

    1. Hi Lax!

      If you aren’t sure about what he wants then you need to ask him. If you ask, he will tell you. There is nothing to be afraid about. Either you find that he really likes you and you can have a relationship or you find out that he isn’t into it and you can move on but at least you’ll have some answers. Just casually say to him “hey you know, I dig you and I was curious if you felt the same?”. That easy. Don’t overcomplicate it.

  2. Hi Anna. Love your blog! I met a dreamy Taurus dude the night before last at a singles gig. We had alot in common, totally hitbit off & talked for over an hour. He bought me a drink & was a total gentleman. When i was ready to leave i asked him to walk me to my car: i had most of my drink left & stupidly said i wanted to bring it with me! It’s not like I was planning to drink it while driving, I just sipped it on the walk & stuck it in the console when we got to my car. Anyway he said lets get together & gave me his #. i texted him immed. to confirm #. Havent heard from him yet & wondering if i dont hear from him soon, how long I should wait before I text him? Also shud i ignore this embarrassing incident or address it? Thank u for whatever help u can offer!

    1. Hi Scorpio Amy!

      Alright so if he suggested getting together and gave you his number then he isn’t holding your drink against you sweetheart. I don’t think he thought much of it. If you haven’t asked him yet again how things are going and if he’s still up for getting together then you should try. Do it one more time and then back away. If he still wants to do it, he will get back to you. You don’t want to seem needy by texting him too much before he responds. He won’t like it. I think doing it once will be sufficient. Half the time they want to see if you even are still interested in them. If you don’t hear back from him then there was something that didn’t sit well with him and he’s decided to keep on in his dating life. Hope this helps sweetheart!

  3. Hi Anna! I’ve been talking to a taurus guy for 6 months and i may have developed feelings for him. I may have said the 3 words and after that, our conversation went dry few days later. I even told him if he’s not interested, i can remove myself so that i can move on. However, he said that he’s not in the mood to talk & will get back to me in a few days but he didn’t. And when i posted on my Instagram stories, he kept viewing every single one of them but i still haven’t heard from him.

    As much as i feel that he’s not interested, i still wish that he would get back to me soon. Not sure what to do next.

    I’m a Capricorn btw.

    1. Hi Adel!

      Oh bummer. I’m sorry he has gone cold. It would seem that he’s doing the indecisive thing right now and if he says he doesn’t want to talk because he’s not in the mood then you’ll have to step back and let him come to you. It’s the giving him time and space thing. Something is keeping him from pushing forward which could be his past or something else. I understand that you wish he would get back to you soon but Taurus is only on his time table. Relax and let him come around to you because if he does then you’ll know that he’s really interested in you. If he doesn’t then it will only affirm that he isn’t. I wish you all the best!

      1. Hi! I went on a date with a Taurus man last week. He did invite me back to his, but I declined. He messaged me the next day saying it was a shame that I wasn’t there and perhaps another time. I did say straight up i’d like to see him again. He doesn’t respond to messages right away (recently a day or two between) but when I hint at seeing him again (for example trying something he has made) he says things like I must come try it etc but not fixing I date. I took the bull by the horns so to speak and said if it’s a must then when does he suggest? He replied (after a day) saying hopefully soon but is busy (work &holiday)but he could probably in a couple of weeks. I’m so confused by him. Trying to be patient but also aware that Taurus can be backwards about coming forwards
        I’m an Aquarius if that helps.
        Any advice please?

  4. Hi Anna,

    I started talking to a Taurus at the end of August. On October 1, he asked me to be his girlfriend. Since then, we have only seen each other twice. We talk all the time (every day), and not just over text. I know he’s been busy with some travel and friends coming into town, but I’m getting really frustrated when I suggest plans and he will agree to them then blow them off. Any advice for how this Leo can navigate this — I really like him otherwise!

    1. Hi Allie Leo!

      Taurus isn’t the best at juggling. If you already know he’s busy with travel and friends coming around then you’re going to have to be more patient with him. Try making less plans with him. In fact, try blowing him off a little bit. He’ll wonder what’s going on with you and will reach out. Tell him you got tired of him blowing you off. He’ll apologize and he’ll probably stick to it next time. That’s the easiest solution. When he’s surrounded with friends and has a lot going on, he’s prioritizing and puts love on the back burner a tiny bit but that won’t last. The thing is, if he’s already talking to you every single day… he’s already showing you you’re still important to him. I’d be honest with him, that’s the best tactic. If you need any other help, check out my guides on “Taurus Man Secrets”. I wish you all the best.

  5. I started seeing a Taurus man in his 40s (which he lied about his age when we first met). We went on a four dates and he is already planning on going for a trip with me. I’m very confused with his behavior (texting every day but inconsistently and not always answering what was written). It is my first time with a Taurus man!

    1. Hi Gemini!

      He is excited with you and is why he may be moving a little faster than many. He’s also in his 40’s which means that he’s a more matured Taurus which counts for something. I would say to you to take your time. Keep your independence. Make your own plans and goals. It’s alright to take a small getaway vacation together. It gives you a decent amount of time to get to know each other better. Go for it sweetheart but don’t allow him to rush you too much. You need to know it’s not just mere infatuation. I wish you all the very best!

  6. Hi, I’m a Leo-Virgo hard cusp dating a Taurus man 2.5 months. It’s alot!
    He is going through modification to stop foreclosure and just got full custody having 15yo full time. He grew up sheltered like I. Then he went promiscuous in college. Then was super monogamous in arrangement married with a woman he was on and off that resulted to 2 kids. Both of their religious parents made them married. During married for 18months she introduced swinging. They got a divorced after 18 months marriage. He went into poly. After doing a year in prison none of the women were for him in the slightest way, 2017. Since then he has dated and such. I believe I have been a little clingy vis texts. However, we have connected and began a bond. But I think he slowed down a little. I wonder if I expressed too much feelings and desires for him to esp let me in. Or is it he is going through foreclosure, new full time parenting, OR turn off by me and has no more interest. I didn’t do anything bad or wrong. He and I have really done things for each. We were connecting. I’m concerned. I have not texted him 2 days and have not heard from him. I want to give space. I hope to hear from him, idk.

  7. Hello,
    I’m an Aquarius 38 and he is the Taurus 31 – both divorced. So far 3rd date – very strange, we went to get tattoos together lol. This is the first time I date a younger guy. He is extremely handsome and smart. I’m very very and extremely nervous about future. I’m the type of free spirit and I’m not looking for commitment but I really enjoy his company. I don’t chase him at all. He is the one that Takes the initiative to see me… not sure what to do. I don’t want to feel rejected…

  8. Hi,
    Pisces female here (39), dating a Taurus male (38). We actually met a year ago and went on a few dates, but our schedules didn’t work out at the time. Then we met up again almost a year later and have been dating consistently for 6 months. Sometimes I feel like he’s really into being with me but then he kind of seems aloof as well. He was in a 6-year relationship before me where the woman ended it and maybe he’s being careful, but sometimes I’m not sure where this is going. I am head over heels and trying to not be needy, but I wish I felt a little bit more secure. I’ve introduced him to a few of my friends in these past 6 months but haven’t met any of his. It tends to make me wonder of feel like he might be embarrassed of me, or maybe he isn’t that serious. Any thoughts? I know they tend to do things on their own timeline, but I want to make sure that I’m not ‘just for now’ but someone from now to the future.

  9. Hi Anna,

    I’m a Taurus woman and is now early dating a Taurus guy. He’s indeed into taking things slow which I thought at first that he’s not really into me. I hope to develop a healthy relationship and eventually marry him.

  10. Hi I’m a Pisces and started talk to a Taurus men younger than me. We first hit off great. We have been on a few dates and texting often. Great conversations and questions about what we look in relationships and so on. One day we played around and I said maybe we should have waited a bit longer and don’t want the magic to go away and he started getting hot and cold with me. Few days ago said to me that he wanted to take things slow, that we couldn’t be hanging out every Friday and also we dint have to text every day and I said that is ok to take it slow but if he is not feeling it he can tell me. He said that he dint like what I was making about me and my feelings all said is I want honesty that’s all I can take it slow and we don’t have to text every day. We still text every day and he responds right away but is mostly one sided and not like before. Like he’s been hot & cold and it’s frustrating because I don’t want to invest to waste my time and he’s making me feel like I can’t ask. Any advice ?

    1. Dear Pisces,
      The first thing you need to know is that the Taurus man and Pisces woman soulmate connection is definitely there. In fact, these two are a dynamic duo.
      Taurus men are known to be slow movers. That being said; you need to know that if a Taurus man moves quickly; something is not right. They normally don’t do this and if they do; they will regret it.Take it easy and let him come to you, the last thing you want to do is to overwhelm by putting pressure on him to warm up to you again. Allow him the space to not be at his best and show him how patient and loving you can be.
