Ignoring a Taurus man – What Happens If You Go Cold On Him?

What happens when you’ve gotten upset or hurt by your Taurus guy and you decide to go quiet on him or not tell him what he’s done? Perhaps you’re trying to get a Taurus man to chase you and you’ve made the mistake of ignoring him. Keep reading for reasons that you shouldn’t be ignoring a Taurus man.

Thinks You Aren’t Interested Anymore

One of the things that a Taurus man will do if you start to ignore him is feeling that you aren’t into him, don’t love him, and are moving on. This is a dangerous game to play with a Taurus man who you have not developed a serious relationship with yet.

If you’re just starting to see him, talk to him, or are casually dating; ignoring him will make him decide to go ahead and move on. Ignoring works with some men but Taurus man isn’t really one of them.

Some men will chase after a woman when the woman acts as though she’s not interested. With Taurus; he only wants to be with someone he’s sure does like him and doesn’t want to play games.

He’s a very serious type of guy. Mind games do not work on him and he will see you as a drama queen. He isn’t attracted to dramatic women and when he finds out that you are that way; he’ll walk away.

The last thing you want him to think is that you’re into interested in him anymore. So if he’s being difficult or dragging his feet; use your inner strength and open up to him. He’ll appreciate your candor. Tell him how you feel and what you want.

Might As Well Cut Him

ignoring a taurus man

If the two of you have been in an actual relationship for awhile and you get upset with him and react via silent treatment, you might as well put a dagger in his heart. This is how he will feel if you ignore him.

Taurus men love affection and adoration; much like Leo men do. He wants it his way though and if you ignore him or give him the silent treatment; he feels devastated because you’re not giving him your love.

I’m not saying it’s fair if he’s done you wrong. If he did something that absolutely to your heart out or made you angrier than you’ve ever been; he needs to face up to it. Ignoring him isn’t going to solve a thing.

Taurus men are oblivious when it comes to their partner’s feelings and whether or not they did something wrong. They can be a total jerk and not understand his actions were hurtful.

His partner needs to step up and tell him what he did wrong, how bad it hurt or how angry it made you. The only way he can work on it or not do it again is by addressing it.

May Induce Cheating

Taurus men are very loyal when they’re 100% committed. 100%, not 90% or less. If he isn’t 100% then he may have a tendency to still be looking for the possible “one” if he feels you’re not totally hitting the mark.

That being said; if you decide to give him the silent treatment; he’ll chalk it up to you not loving him anymore and may give him that proverbial “push” over the line which causes him to be in the arms of another woman.

Not all Taurus men are this way but there are some that will seek comfort in someone else if they aren’t getting it from home. Ignoring him will seal that deal so you might want to be very careful.

Again; if you’re hurting or angry with your Taurus man but you want to keep him; tell him how he’s upset you and ask him to not do it anymore. He needs to know the truth and he needs to know how you feel.

Not talking to him will make him want to talk to someone else or confide in a woman who will be more understanding of his needs. Don’t let your Taurus man slide into another woman’s home base.

He May Shut Down

ignoring a taurus man

When you’ve had it with your Taurus man and you decide to give him the cold shoulder; he may react with the same action. You’ll probably regret that you started it because he feels he’s the one that will finish it.

You definitely don’t want him going icy on you in response to you being icy. It will get nasty and a break up may be well underway if you cannot get him to start talking again.

Taurus men hold life-long grudges and he will hold one against you if he feels that you unjustly shut him down. Taurus men are great at giving the silent treatment themselves but not good at it happening to them.

They do have a double standard when it comes to being cold to someone. They’re experts at not returning calls, not answering texts, and not talking in person. Yet if their woman does it; he cannot handle it and flips out or runs away.

If you really love your Taurus man; you’re going to have to understand how he operates because ignoring him isn’t a good tool to use unless you’re willing to gamble losing him.

There are some gambles that work out but most of them do not. Some Taurus men will go nuts trying to figure out what is going on with you and may start making assumptions about things that aren’t happening.

Some will badger you until you tell them what they did wrong or why you’re upset. Others will say screw you and start being silent around you. This is why you have to think about yourself and about him.

Are you 100% certain how he might react? If you aren’t then it may not be worth the risk. It’s a huge gamble and you should weigh your options before you decide to ice him out.

  1. What if he felt being neglected and not loved in the marriage? If the capricorn woman (me) was cold for some time. Will he want to end it just because he thinks I don’t love him anymore (which is not true, of course)?

    1. Hi Olga! Thank you for writing in about your Taurus guy situation. Yes, if he feels unloved or guarded because you were cold to him then this would cause him to withdraw and become cold and guarded. This could cause a Taurus man to either leave or cheat as well. They wouldn’t ordinarily do either but he does need his partner to give him lots of love and affection. When he isn’t getting it, he starts to look at his other options but in the meantime becomes very cautious and calculating. There is more you should know about Taurus man and luckily, I have written more books about him. Take a look at “Taurus Man Secrets”.

    2. Meet a Taurus guy that reminded me of a Virgo man in some ways. Both Earth signs. I first checked him out to see if he meant what he said. First month in a half. We talked in phone for hours, he came over, we spent time, he said he loved me and wanted to be in a relationship but I wasn’t trying to get hurt again so I filled him out. Filled him out and he passed. He was good with his words, loved his kids, loved mine. There wasnt anything I could find wrong. He cared for me, he checked up on me, helped me out, and did kind things, and boy was he a Man! I was falling for this guy. However, doing everything right by him. Being loyal, only entertaining him, cooking for him, showing him my love and undivided attention. I could tell he would try to make me jealous. I wasnt into that, I didn’t wanna play any games. So I showed him how much I just wanted to be with him and try to do the best I could to keep him happy and he didnt complain. But, he act if he wasnt into me anymore and started talking more to his girl friend. He said there was nothing going on with him and her. She had a boyfriend and they all knew each other. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt and trusted what he said a did. Honestly, I wanna play his game too and stop calling and texting as much but I don’t wanna play games. Is he really not that into me? What should I do?

      1. Hi Tamia!

        Talk to him openly and honestly. Tell him exactly how you feel and what you want. He will either agree and try to work on it or he’ll tell you he’s not into it. Either way you find out you can move forward with him or you can move on from him. Don’t sit around wondering because you’ll drive yourself crazy. Do what is right for you and take control of the situation by talking to him openly and honestly! Wishing you the best!

  2. As a cancer woman I definitely let him know what upset me, I told him what he many times did wrong followed by “there are so many other guys that would value me much more than you do” all this I did through text. Now I said this with true intentions to break apart from him because I was feeling hurt and thought I did not deserve that. But it hurt me even more when he replied back saying I am right I deserve someone that can give me all the attention that I need. Wanting to hear this out of his mouth I went to visit him a week later. I told him I exaggerated things. He said I did not exaggerated things I was right. He said he thought about what I told him and found out he was not paying too much attention to me because he was just not focused on me. Meaning he was not into me. This was all I needed to know to stop wasting my time. We decided to keep things calm and changed conversations at the end of the night he wanted to have sex with me but I said good bye. I did not mean good bye forever, but I think that’s what he thought I meant because he stopped me and said wait not like that and then hugged me good bye. I need time to let him out of me. He is a good person to keep close as friend but I don’t want to have feelings for him if he doesn’t have any for me. It’s been 2 weeks since we last spoke and maybe its just me but he has tried to indirectly show me he cares for me. Posting things on social media. Of course without any reference to me. This makes me wonder does he care or not care for me.

  3. I trust most of your advice about Taurus men Ana, but this advice your giving is basically saying allow a Taurus man to walk all over you, when he treats you poorly. Spare his feelings, but not my own. I tried going that route with my Taurus guy, being up front and clear on what I wanted…build a relationship ship, with real communication and not a bunch of texting. To make more effort to see me. I gave him space, to think things over, two weeks he didn’t call, I don’t complain. But at some point your just a doormat. I stopped responding to his text, until he starts to put forth action, and stops making unfulfilled promises.

  4. Hi Anna I’m a Virgo female and I just started talking to a Taurus male. First he seemed interested then he changed his mind and said he needed to work on things for himself. That we should take it slow. Now he says he just wants us to be friends..nothing but friends. Did I do something wrong or is it just him?

    1. Hi Kara!

      It sounds like he’s not really sure what he wants and due to that, he says he needs to figure things out and just wants to be friends. Take that friendship and run with it. That can open up doors for the two of you later on. Then again, if you don’t want to wait for him then you may want to move on. It’s your choice to make but you have to go with what he says in terms of what he wants or doesn’t want though until or if he changes his mind. You have to decide if you want to wait him out or not. I wish you all the best!

  5. Hello Anna!
    I need help! I am an Aquarius woman 25 and I started dating a Taurus man 29 about two months ago. At first was everything nice and romantic, I liked him more and more everyday, for I am a very romantic person myself.
    We met two times only in 3 weeks time, since we live in different cities and he is a busy person. After that we had a fight, I iniciated, because I thought he was not paying much attention to me, since I wanted to call him that night, when I was very sad and he declined coz he was busy “with his family watching tv”.
    I claimed “you are not supposed to care, but my man must” and his response was “I am not your man, yet”. I must say he was very committed form the start, we kissed, and he was very caring.
    After the fight he gave me the silent treatment for three days, with me doing the good girl ( I read your books) he came back, he started responding to my messages, calls but he didn’t come to see me saying that he was very busy but he also wanted to see me and he likes me. The relationship though didn’t have it’s romantink shine as before, I felt like I was iniciating the conversations and calling him and he was just replying, but he made some progress from the cold shoulder in the ten days. After that I asked him for the holiday trip we booked and he told me he was not sure if je could come, because he had planes with his family. I accepted and told him we can go another time. He also told me that I should me mature and take things slowly. After that I asked him if his feelings for me or the relationship has changed? He told me nothing has changed, you are a very good girl and we are geting to know each other. But I do not want to say people that we are lovers, coz we are not in a relationship yet and this woudn’t be healthy for none of us. I become worried! So I told him how I felt about our relationship from the start, how I loved him being caring and romatic and how I do not understand his coldness now, cancelling our trip, not calling me, not initiating conversations with me. If this was a way of saying goodbye I asked him to be truthful to me and say it. If this was just he that needed more time to make up his mind, I told him I will wait for you. I told him that I like him very much and that’s why I want to let him chase me, call me if he want, meet me if he want or even leave the relationship I will respect his choice.
    He didn’t reply to my sincere message. It’s six days now that I didn’t comunicate to him and he nither, but we still see the stories of one another. I think he left me, but I do not know is he losing interest or me acting to pushy? Will he come back, maybe he needed more time to think about his feelings?

    1. Hi Aquarius 02,

      You cannot get him to chase you. Taurus men typically do not chase. If they do it may be due to a moon sign or rising sign that is more of that type which would make him be a bit different but most Taurus men don’t do it. If you insist on not talking to him then you may not hear from him. If you need to know what is going on with him, you have to ask but I wouldn’t bug him. Try checking in with him once or twice a week by texting something simple “hope all is well with you, thinking of you!” type of thing. Don’t ask him about where you two are, etc… With time you may get the answers you’re trying to get from him. Hang in there!

  6. What if we’re in a long distance relationship and he’s on vacation in his hometown with his parents and siblings, and he doesn’t call or text in days, almost weeks? As a Gemini, I usually fight and say all kinds of things, which only pushes him further and further away. Now I think that my only option is to give him the exact same treatment he gives me, because when he’s angry he always gives me the silent treatment. I know he loves me and it’s a committed relationship. I know he’s busy with his huge family and decompressing from his exhausting job, but he could at least let me know he’s ok…

    1. Hi Lana!

      Does he answer you when you text him? If you’re expecting him to always initiate then you’ll be disappointed. Taurus isn’t the best when it comes to initiating contact. This is especially true the closer he gets to someone. He gets comfortable and doesn’t feel the need to talk as often as he would when he was trying to win you over. Giving him the same treatment may backfire on you. If you need more from him then ask him for it. It’s likely he doesn’t have any idea that you feel this way. Be honest and just ask for him to meet you halfway with communication. Also tell him you’d like to know if he’s ok. He should answer you. Hope this works!

  7. Hello anna, i really an advice.. i met my taurus man online, and on long distance, we talked for months, and clicked on lots of things (im a taurus too), and he did bought ticket to see me, but in the process, he was also work abroad and at one point met a girl in his town and dated for couple of times, he told me everything that the relationship base is friendship but time passed and he said that he have this feelings for her too,, and feel very complicated.. as he like me too,, now im feeling down and told him what i feel at the same time i dont want to be an option, which i told him too, and told hime just to choose her to make things easier, i feel like giving up but sad, because i cant force anyone feelings,, and now its month till he come, i really dont know what to do.. talk friendly or just give spaces?

  8. Me and him used to talk, but I was the one who was iniating when it comes to contact, so I told myself that he doesn’t care about me and decided to stop texting him, and after like a month, he came back and asked me If I still likes him,he told me to think about it and tell him tonigt, I told him that I moved on(but I didn’t really).what does that mean Anna?did he expect me to chase him?

    And I noticed that he started following depressed edits on ig, which is very weird because he doesn’t usually watch this type of stuff on social media, he’s the type to follow basketball players, artists, watch, funny videos, etc.And he’s always looking sad, he barely talk and laugh with his friends now,which is also weird,because among all his friends, he’s the “hype” one.but now it seems like he’s isolating himself.
