Why Won’t My Taurus Man Commit? 4 Reasons

Sometimes you will find that a Taurus man is just not committing, and this can be so confusing because of his very stable and secure nature. Here are four possible reasons why a Taurus man won’t commit:

He Is Not Ready For Commitment

It is true that these Earth zodiac signs value stability and security in their lives. They may not be ready for commitment if they feel like they haven’t achieved enough stability in their own life or careers yet.

If he is not where he wants to be financially, it might put too much pressure on him to feel like he needs to provide for a partner. This feeling of unreadiness can leave him feeling uneasy and insecure.

So a Taurus man won’t commit if he does not feel ready for something long-term. These men put a lot of pressure on themselves to succeed and provide, so they want to make sure they are in a solid position before committing to someone else.

He Is Unsure About You

Taurus men tend to have a very clear idea of what they want in a partner. They can be quite stubborn about their preferences and may take some time to determine if you meet their criteria.

He is the type of guy who can wait it out to find the perfect match. If he is unsure about you, it could be because he is still evaluating whether you meet his standards and match his long-term goals.

If he feels you are not the right fit for him, he may not want to commit to you until he finds someone who better aligns with his vision for the future. Being very sure about his decision is essential to him.

He Has Been Hurt Before

As one of the most cautious signs in the Zodiac, a Taurus man is afraid of experiencing hurt and pain, especially if he has been hurt in the past before. This fear of getting hurt again can make a Taurus man hesitant to commit.

It can be tough for these guys to move on and let go once they experience heartbreak. They may have built up emotional walls to protect themselves from being hurt again, which can make it challenging for them to fully open up and commit to a new relationship.

Trusting someone new is a big challenge for a Taurus man who has been hurt in the past. He may need extra time and reassurance to feel comfortable enough to commit, as he is cautious about repeating past mistakes.

The Sensual Connection Is Lacking

Taurus men are known for their sensual nature and deep connection to the physical aspects of a relationship. If the sensual connection is lacking or if the physical intimacy is not satisfying for him, your Taurus man won’t fully commit.

He might be waiting for a deeper physical and emotional connection before he commits. This connection is of the utmost importance for a Taurus man, and if this is not there, then it can be a struggle for him to envision a long-term commitment with you.

If he feels that this connection isn’t there, then he might feel less motivated to pursue a committed relationship with you.

How To Get A Taurus Man To Commit (4 Most Effective Ways)

Getting a Taurus man to commit is easier than you think, here are my best tips to help you win over his heart and make him commit to a long-term relationship:

1. He Needs Time & Patience

Never rush a Taurus into commitment. This is a creature of habit who hates being put into a corner and you don’t need resulting stubbornness and obstinacy ruining your chances.

The first thing you need to grasp in order to understand him is that he hates changes. Second, he needs time to weigh all the pros and cons of any possible change, of any big undertaking.

He is cautious, he abhors taking risks and he needs to feel secure and 100% convinced that committing to you is the right decision. Rushing him would only make things worse. And yet, you might wait forever because he tends to get stuck in a rut.

Taurus prefers familiar things; he likes things as they are—“Better a devil you know than the one you don’t” is surely a quote from a Taurus—which is why he might keep your relationship on ice for years.

So, how can you make him change his ways without rushing him?

2. Stand Out From the Crowd

His bachelor and uncommitted lifestyle is a habit he needs to kick. But if the two of you are already in some sort of relationship, you are on firmer ground, for he dislikes change in all areas, which means he would leave you only if push came to shove—a relationship with you is also a kind of habit.

He likes his freedom, but he likes you, too, so we need to tip the balance in your favor and make him want to take your relationship to the next level.

For a Taurus, the relationship is an investment. He invests in what he finds valuable, and he values stability, endurance, dependability, industriousness, safety, security, reliability, pleasures, comfort, honesty, and, most of all – a comfortable and pleasant home life.

Can you provide him with this? Your goal is to show him your worth and that what you offer is so valuable and appealing that he will want to grab this perfect picture of a life with you and change his bachelor’s MO—commit to you.

Taurus is a simple creature so there’s no need for acrobatics, just give him this feeling of pleasantness, stability, and endurance he has been chasing his whole life.

Taurus might be slow to start, but once he sees his goal shining before him, he will commit to it with full determination.

3. Let Your Reliability Shine Through

Taurus men want a woman they can depend on. They want to know you will be there for them, and they want to see you in it for the long run. You can assure him of this in many ways, and it doesn’t have to be anything big.

On the contrary, it’s more important that you are consistently reliable and that your presence provides a constant sense of stability in his world, for this is what he craves. Try not to change your mind too often or cancel plans unless you really have to; don’t turn off your phone if you had plans that day, and don’t fall short on your promises.

Put simply – don’t be fickle when relating to him. Show support for his problems and goals, be a reliable companion and adviser, a rock, a safe harbor. If he asks for your opinion, you are a girl!

But refrain from forcing unwanted advice on him or trying to change his mind when he is clearly being stubborn about it – don’t fight windmills, choose your battles wisely. Integrity is important to him and is a part of “being there” so this doesn’t mean you should be dishonest, just wise when voicing your opinion and providing well-meaning support.

4. Be His Best Friend

Yes, Taurus man loves sex, and he likes the “homemaker” type of girl, the feminine type, the Aphrodite – but friendship is also a BIG component of a successful relationship. No need to overwhelm him with cooking, seducing, or dressing up, just be yourself and be his pal also.

He values a relaxed attitude, and he needs to know he can enjoy a quiet, uneventful evening on the couch with you, talk to you openly, confide in you, and hang out without playing games or watching your every word—just like you do with your friends.

So, relax, be his pal and a sincere friend, not just a lover, and allow him to be your friend too! This is the basis of every good relationship and Taurus knows this very well.

3 More Ways To Convince A Taurus Man…

If that doesn’t work, here are three more ways to convince a Taurus man to commit:

5. If You Want Your Taurus Man To Commit, Be His Sanctuary

Home life is of paramount importance to a Taurus; he values a beautiful and comfy home and relationships that provide a sense of retreat from the rat race outside. He seeks a feeling of sanctuary, safety, and pleasantness.

Whether you are already living together or visiting each other’s places, here is your chance to shine. Show him what a good homemaker you are!

When you invite him over, make your living space as comfy and delightful as possible. Bring him something nice and quality for his own home. Cook for him (better yet, invite him to join you; he will like the opportunity to show his own skills). Ask him for his opinion if you plan to decorate or redecorate your (or shared) living space.

Appeal to his excellent taste and interests! Tease him with what is to come if he chooses you as his life partner. Tease him with the sense of safety, coziness, permanence, and pleasure. Just remember to do all this in an unassuming and spontaneous way, for he hates artificiality and a sense of being pressured into something.

6. Show Him Your Grounded Nature

As much as he likes traditional settings and home life and will enjoy your home-cooked meals, beautifully decorated living space, cozy Netflix, and Chill evenings, do not go overboard. Taurus is a simple man with an innate sense of integrity, so he will sniff artificiality.

He will sense if you are not being spontaneous but simply playing a role to please him and will be repelled by a big show. He will value your homemaking skills and your material as a wife only if he sees that you are a woman of common sense who is able to stand with two feet firmly on the ground. Just be yourself! (Unless you are a Leo, in which case, tone it down a bit.)

He will feel delighted, even proud if you dress up when the two of you are entertaining or going out, but he also wants you to look and feel relaxed when you are alone with him.

No need for going to bed with fake eyelashes and tons of foundation for fear he will see you without makeup in the morning – Taurus values natural beauty and wants to see your easy-going and playful side.

You don’t need to be perfect around him; you are just feminine, so unleash your Earth goddess! Earth knows all seasons and all weather conditions but is ever present, a constant in his world. Draw on that!

7. Be In Your Feminine

While it’s surely a plus if his Venus has long and beautiful hair, without each hair needing to be in its place all the time, she does need to have something between her ears too. Taurus values material reality and wants to see you able to cope with this material world.

Taurus men sometimes tend to “buy love with gifts” while some even play sugar daddies, but unless you wanna see where this road takes you and whether you can beat the odds and become a trophy wife – it’s wiser and safer to go about it the other way. Show that you embody his values, show that you appreciate the material world by being commonsense, shrewd, and practical about it.

Taurus likes luxury and beauty, but more importantly, he likes quality and endurance. And he likes to get a good deal. Show that you are money savvy: Do not waste your or his resources; instead, capitalize on them—show him that you, too, are a good deal in the long run!

FAQs On Taurus Men And Commitment

Sometimes, Taurus men can become hesitant when it comes to commitment. Here are some FAQs that I often get asked about Taurus men and commitment:

Why Do Taurus Have Commitment Issues?

Taurus men may have commitment issues for various reasons. They sometimes struggle with change or do not feel good enough for a committed relationship. They might feel that they need to have certain things in place in their lives before they can fully commit, such as financial stability or personal goals.

He might also feel like no one lives up to his standards, and thus, he hesitates to commit. He might also feel rushed as he is a man who prefers to take things slow and thoroughly evaluate his options before making a decision.

How Long Does It Take A Taurus Man To Commit?

Commitment is something a Taurus man does not take lightly. He is someone who typically takes things slowly. Rushing into a commitment he is not ready for can go against his intrinsic nature.

He prefers to move at his own steady pace and may need more time than others to fully commit. It is important to be patient and understand that each Taurus man is unique in his journey towards commitment.

Is Your Taurus Man STILL Avoiding Commitment?

Does your Taurus man pull away or get quiet when you’ve just had a deep emotional connection?

Does he seem to disappear just when you thought he was getting closer?

Have you felt confused by his hot and cold behavior?

If so, then he might have an avoidant attachment style.

He could be Dismissive Avoidant and completely terrified of commitment…

Or he could be Fearful Avoidant and REALLY want commitment…

But get scared when he feels himself getting closer to you.

If he has either one of these attachment styles, you’re going to end up feeling extremely confused at times.

And both are caused by childhood trauma.

When you can see the scared little boy inside him that had to shut down his feelings if he’s dismissive avoidant…

Or have a parent not provide his needs consistently if he’s fearful avoidant…

It can make it easier to have empathy and compassion for his confusing and frustrating behavior. 

But that won’t fix it.

And while advice on attachment styles can be helpful…

What you really need to stop this frustrating hot and cold cycle is to understand him better.

Thankfully, there is a simple system to TRULY understand how he ticks based on his astrology.

It will stop him from pulling back when you begin feeling closer.

And it will accomplish this in only 30 days.

Click here to find out more.

So no more crying yourself to sleep when he pulls back..

No more feeling incredibly confused.

And no more wondering what in the heck is going on with him…

Even if he has an avoidant attachment style.

  1. Hi… A taurus co~worker of mine and I we’ve been spending time together and loving every moment, Does it mean something?

    1. Hi Lorato! Thank you for commenting about your tricky situation. Truly it’s hard to know whether a Taurus man thinks of you as a friend or if it’s more. You’re going to need to actually try to figure out where you’re at in his mind and the only way to do that is by asking. You’re going to need to ask him what he thinks about you hanging out. Tell him that you’re developing some feelings for him and would like to explore what there may be between you if he’s up for it. Ask him if he’s feeling this way also. If he is, he will take you up on it. If he isn’t, he should at that point truthfully tell you that he’s only interested in being friends then you’ll know for sure what his intention is and where you two stand. Of course there are many other things you should probably take into account or learn about the Taurus man. Check out my book “Taurus Man Secrets” to help you.

  2. Hi Anna, Please tell me that this same advice will work for a gay Taurus Man? I am a gay Capricorn Man.

    1. Hi Designer! Yes! It should still apply to your situation. I’ve had other men buy the books I have to offer and write in for their VIP consult. They found my information to be highly useful in their situations. In fact, if you’d like to know more, please do check out my books “Taurus Man Secrets” as there may be lots of information that can help you in your personal situation.

  3. They are high maintenance. I am a Cancer woman, perfectly matched and he kept putting me on ice. One moment hot, then, cold. I am not a yoyo.

  4. Hi, my classmate is a Taurus man. And i like him. Actually, in love with him. So sometimes he was acting so cold. there were times he didn’t say hi to me. Like i don’t exist. But he is kind and flirty. I guess he likes me as well.i asked why he acts like that, he was like ” i don’t like our classmates,you are the closest to me” and he told me why i don’t talk to him, or why i forgot him” and i was like “no, you are making some walls that i can’t climb”! But we are good now. So can we marry?

    1. Hi Lala!

      Wow that’s a bold move! This is something that has to be cultivated over time. Though he shows interest, a bond needs to be created and then worked at via friendship thus moving into more with time. It’s not a quick process and I would imagine marriage would be that much further down the line but definitely possible if you two can become close. I wish you the best! Take your time.

  5. Hi..I broke up with him as ive had felt that he’s no longer into our relationship’s always me who puts effort on our my question is..will he go back to me and tell me to give our relationship another chance? As far as I remember he doesn’t want me back..I still love him that’s why I’m already on the process of letting him go for good.. Aries

    1. Hi Indira Cale,

      You won’t know unless you actually talk to him and ask him about it. Address your concerns, tell him how you feel, and tell him where you see things going. Ask him to tell you how he feels and what he wants and at that point you should be able to gauge whether or not this might work. Wishing you best!

  6. It was great with my Taurus man in the beginning. I am a Gemini and we really had great chemistry between us. I’d never felt anything like it before with any man. I told him i loved him after one month, though he never told me his feelings, he would show how he felt with his actions. I really felt it wS going somewhere. After 5 months he started going cold on me..I’d call and text him all thd time. Sometimes i texted too much. I know they don’t like that…Finally he told me he needed time to get his head together. Its been a 7 weeks since we last got together and i miss him so bad. I still love him but i have stopped myself telling him this now. I realise he needs time to realise what he truly wants.He hates pressure , so i’m taking a back seat by not texting him much now.

    1. Hi Cheryl Knowles!

      So he basically start to slowly back out while ignoring you or not initiating. When they are in doubt, this is definitely what they do. They also do it when they’re planning their departure from the relationship. Sadly, they plan it out instead of just making a decision. It’s good to take a break and keeping your distance but don’t do it for too long or or too often. You need to make sure he understands that you’re still there and you haven’t given up on him. Naturally if you go a long period of time without him changing or improving things then you may need to move on. I wish you nothing but the best!

  7. Hi…I’ was in a relationship with a Taurus man’s younger brother, who happens to be a scorpio and all through the time this Taurus man had an eye on me from the first time he saw me, he kept asking everyone about me,he’ll flirt subtly with me, asking me to go the movies with with him & I was paying attention,but didn’t respond & things ended btwn his brother and I, few months later I texted him, and he took it up and always keeps the conversation, so I asked for him to define the reason for our so much texting and why he wants to know about me,and asking for pictures, he said he’ll like to be there for me for as long as I get someone to settle with as nothing serious can happen between us due to circumstances surrounding our friendship, & I said no, that if I will want to be with him & not a side piece till whenever I settle as he propose,…lol, I really do like him alot,buht I’m willing to let him go. Any idea on if he’ll ever commit to be as a partner…please reply.
    Thanks Anna. I’m an aquarius woman

    1. Hi Sucre!

      Thank you for writing in. It’s hard to tell if he will ever change his mind. He will have to be friends with you for a very long time and you’ll have to show him that you’re the right one for him to even get his interest in that way. He probably likes you but is afraid of relationships or is busy with other parts of his life and cannot maintain one right now. You really should read my book “Taurus Man Secrets” as I really think it will help you learn about him. You might be able to entice him with time and lots of patience.

  8. Hey Anna I am really tired we are together for almost 4 years and he is completely chnge now he only values me when I am oky when I got sick and asks him he either doesn’t respond or breakup with me I don’t know how to handle it he always worn me of breakup and then after few days if I message him he is fine but all he wants is a good control over me before this for almost 2 years everything was perfectly fine plx let me know he really wants to end up with me or no it’s just his cold side
    P.S he is nowadays very busy in his work and I know it’s true
    Plz reply me I am unable to sleep at night

    1. Hi Katie!

      Yikes, yes some Taurus men can be rather dominant and want to control. Don’t let him do that though. If you give him that power, he will keep doing it. It sounds like if you space out a bit, it makes him miss you and wonder what is going on. Some Taurus guys need this. If he is busy then yes, he will space off and not reach out as much. Work is important to Taurus men as it’s their safety blanket and means of ego lifting. There is no way I can tell you if you’re going to end up together or not. You have to ask him that. If he has no intention on giving you what you want then you will have to decide if you will continue waiting for him or if you will move on. Trust your gut.

  9. Hi
    I have been seeing my Taurus man for 4 months now. I can Jones say I’m falling for him. I’m 32 years old mother of two and he’s 46 divorced father of two. Despite the lockdown we see each other very often because we decided to bubble together. He’s the most charming, calm, attentive and sensual lover I have ever met. The only thing he he never talks about himself or his work at all, I know he runs his own business but never says anything and I don’t know what he does really in fact it took him a good month before he even gave me his last name. We text each other every day even when he’s busy at work he always make time to chat to me, I let him call at his convenience since he’s most of the time buried with work. I really hope and wish he could share a bit more about himself because a part of me feels like I’m falling for a stranger. I visit his house and he visit mine and we always have such an amazing time. I noticed he’s a little possessive and jealous. I once took a picture at work during break and he asked about the flowers at the background if they’re mine and if so who gave them to me. Whenever I send him a photo he’ll ask things like have you sent it to anyone else or uploaded it on social media? I really don’t know how long it takes a Taurus men to open up just a little because I want to know a little about him, I don’t care about his past I just want to feel like I know him a little. I’m being very patient and never bring the subject up just waiting for him to do it in his own time but he makes me wonder if he actually feels the same about me as i feel about him. Is there anything I can do to make it easy for him to open up just a little a d tell me about himself. He’ll always come to my place when he’s had a stressful day at work but doesn’t talk about it. We go on days not calling each other but we chat every single hour of the day and exchange voice notes and everything.
    I’m a little confused I don’t want to feel this much love if he isn’t on the same path as me.

  10. Hi….i have a mentor 4 years older than me who is a taurus…we started talking through online platform…nd when we started to talk there was an instant attraction between the two of us like on the very first day we talked…now we are gradually developing our relationship over time he is being sweet to me nd admits that he likes me nd thinks about me…do you see a scope of us being together i am a libra woman myself

    1. Hi Anisha!

      Since I am an Astrologer, I rely on birth data and looking at your charts to see what your compatibility truly may be. I cannot tell if two people are going to end up together or not. Something like that would have to be assessed by a Psychic perhaps. The good news though is that I do offer VIP Consultations. If you would be interested, I’d be more than happy to help you. I wish you all the best!
