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

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?
