You’re just starting to feel close and connected when your Taurus man suddenly pulls away and becomes either physically or emotionally unavailable. Is your Taurus man pulling away, and you don’t know what to do?
These time-tested tips based on relationship astrology will help you understand what scares a Taurus man away and what to do when a Taurus man pulls away. This is going to give you the skills to create a healthy relationship with your Taurus.
But the first thing I want you to know is that your Taurus man may actually not be over you but just temporarily focused on solving another problem that has nothing to do with your relationship!
A Taurus man has a one-track mind—just like a bull looking at that red flag—and they don’t multitask well. The very first thing you need to do is stop panicking and ask him what is going on in his life without hurling accusations or being negative.
You don’t want to assume your Taurus man has lost interest in you. It’s part of his personality to go through hot and cold spells due to his sensitive and caring nature. Let me explain.
Why Is A Taurus Man Pulling Away? What Scares Him Away?
When a Taurus man pulls away, this could happen for several reasons. One of the reasons would be your constant neediness and tendency to ask him for validation. This is what a Taurus man cannot stand.
At times, he is prone to insecurity and tends to pull away. Speaking in riddles is also going to pull him away. Is your Taurus man overwhelmed, and this has led him to blow cold and pull away? Totally expected.
Also, your Taurus man may be experiencing trust issues in the relationship. A Taurus man loves security and stability, and if he senses that he cannot trust you or that he cannot anticipate your next move, most likely he will withdraw because he doesn’t like uncharted territories.
Good communication can be crucial in saving difficult relationships, and bad communication can destroy good relationships. Communication is the biggest indicator of whether a relationship can stand the test of time.
If a Taurus experiences conflicts or disagreements with you, he will most definitely seek solitude to reflect on the whole situation. Here’s more on how to communicate with a Taurus man effectively <<

4 More Reasons Why Does A Taurus Man Pull Away
1. Your Irresponsibility Is A Deal-Breaker
Taurus men need respect and trust in a relationship—otherwise, there’s no foundation for him.
If your Taurus man pulls away, you must show that you’re responsible enough to trust and then responsible enough to respect. This is especially true when it comes to matters of love and money.
If you’re constantly getting fired, emptying your bank account, losing your wallet, or behaving carelessly with your possessions, he won’t be able to relate. Even worse—act irresponsibly with his heart, his hopes, and his sensitive spots, and you’re finished.
A bull can smell instability, and it turns them pale. He’s always trying to walk the line and can grow resentful of those who can’t or won’t.
2. Emotional Meltdowns Pull Your Taurus Man Away
The slow and deliberate processing of emotions is the Taurus way, and that includes both actions and reactions. They’re slow to anger, slow to love, and slow to digest. If a tornado blows through their lives, they’ll either survive because they were tied to something steady or die because they thought quickly enough to run.
If there’s one thing a Taurus doesn’t understand, it’s a meltdown. The chaos of emotions and the suddenness of impact are totally bewildering to the bull.
It’s likely that a Taurus man won’t understand what cocktail of triggers upset you, and worse, he won’t see why you reacted so strongly. The lightning-strike timeline of many meltdowns is also nerve-shredding to the average bull, who cherishes safety and predictability.
Some people can take a little drama in stride, mostly because they understand the hows and whys. Not Taurus. They’re some of the most supportive and emotionally generous creatures out there, though, and they want to be your rock when something’s going down.
3. Your Shabbiness Is Not Helpful
In truth, Taurus loves beauty. A lot. And part of their initial attraction to you was likely physical, even though you’re definitely funny, sweet, and great to be with, too.
And it’s not necessarily the facade of beauty that Taurus is drawn to. Makeup, good hair, and nice clothes are a great bonus, but if it isn’t you, they’ll know.
Natural beauty is at the top of the list for a Taurus man, and that means beauty you can see both inside and out—a fresh-faced kind of beauty homegrown from good health, sunshine, and, sometimes, good genes.
It may seem contradictory, then, to say that makeup and all that doesn’t matter in the face of natural, inner or outer beauty. Because it actually does.
Let me explain—your accessories and embellishments should only enhance what you already have, not hide imperfections or create illusions.
4. Speaking Vague Pushes Your Taurus Man Away
Taurus loves absolutes; that’s what they understand. They love the simplest, purest, most classic, and most exquisite versions of everything because they believe in simple, classic, and exquisite purity, of course!
Coca-Cola, blue jeans, rock n’ roll, Chuck Taylors, little black dresses, Disneyland, chocolate chip cookies, steak dinners, hugs, and red roses—your Taurus guy totally gets the appeal. This is a taste issue, a value issue, and a concreteness issue. He loves to choose sides, to define, construct, and hold.
His opinions are often fixed, and so is his morality. He often knows exactly what is “right,” what is “wrong,” what’s “cool,” and what isn’t. He’ll say that what’s time-tested is what’s best, solely because it’s time-tested. Taurus Man pulls away simply if you undermine his opinions.
So be prepared to argue with your Taurus sometimes, but adopt an agree-to-disagree mantra!
If you’re someone who changes with the weather, who’s allergic to “yes” and in bed with “maybe,” a kook whose resolve is as porous as a sea sponge… Well, how did you find yourself interested in a Taurus?
A dreamy, soupy personality is confusing to the male bull. He might initially find himself amused and intrigued, but he will find little to hold onto.
If you can make a list of your favorite things (keep it simple), pick a restaurant (nothing too adventurous), and show up on time at least three times in a row (wow!), you’re on your way to charming your Taurus sweetie.
What To Do When A Taurus Man Pulls Away
If you feel like you’re lacking structure, try to plant a few roots. Tidy up and upgrade your home, perhaps with some comfy, stylish new furniture. You could open a savings account, buy a few Tile trackers for your keys, or start a side hustle with one of your secret skills.
Someone with her feet on the ground and her eye on the prize—now that’s something that really turns a bull’s head.
Don’t sound needy or clingy; don’t display a variety of emotions all at once. Dial back the tears, swallow your anger, and count to 10 before choosing your words. Then ask for his help. You’ll be curled up in his arms in no time.
Always take care of yourself and your appearance. To show the extreme end of the spectrum as an example: if you stop taking care of yourself, your diet worsens, you skimp on sleep, and you start living in stained old T-shirts, your Taurus man will notice.
Take him somewhere nice. If you can make a list of your favorite things (keep it simple), pick a restaurant (nothing too adventurous), and show up on time at least three times in a row (wow!), you’re on your way to charming your Taurus sweetie.
If you’re frisky, free, and flirty on a regular basis, Taurus is not the best match. But if your wild spirit is finally ready for a safe harbor, Taurus would be happy to have you—as long as you stay true.

When A Taurus Man Pulls Away — Don’t Make These 5 Mistakes
1. Blaming Him For Your Problems
Ladies, don’t tell your Taurus man that it is his fault that you spent all night awake worrying about your relationship. Don’t blame him for your feelings or mood.
Remember how I said you might be jumping to conclusions about why he has been distant? If there is something bothering him, be patient and listen to why he may be unsure about things.
Show your Taurus man respect—he is very big on respectful communication.
2. Trying To Force Him To Come Back
If you are feeling lonely, it’s OK to suggest a plan to get together, but don’t demand that he drop everything to come and make you feel better.
First, address your assumptions, and then find a time to calmly discuss how he is feeling about the two of you or what else is going on in his life.
3. Texting And Calling Him Incessantly
If he is in the middle of a project, he may not be able to answer you right away. If you bombard him with messages, it might give him the impression that you’re not stable.
A Taurus man craves level-headedness, so just allow him time to respond without harassing him. And when you do communicate, keep it calm, collected, and positive without making him feel pressured to call you.

4. Trying To Make Him Jealous
It’s easy to fall into the trap of trying to get your Taurus man’s attention with jealousy. You might think that if you go out with someone else, it will make him realize what he could lose.
This is never a good idea because your Taurus man needs to be able to trust you. You do not want to push that button, my friend.
5. Talking About Him Online
Avoid posting about your emotions online—if you do, it may haunt you when things turn around and he remembers feeling disrespected. Taurus is big on feeling valued, and if he has been spoken about in a negative manner, he won’t soon forget it.
His self-esteem is fragile, so don’t say or post something you might regret later, even if you’re upset now.
When A Taurus Man Stops Talking — Does That Mean He Is Losing Interest?
Maybe your Taurus man isn’t a typical bull. Maybe you’re sitting there scratching your head, pretty positive he is actually pulling away.
We are influenced by all aspects of our birth charts, and your Taurus may have other traits that strongly influence his personality apart from his sun sign. Take a look at his chart or get some advice on how to interpret it if you suspect this is the case.
For example, if he rushed into your relationship and has never been very reliable, he probably has other elements affecting his chart that will help you understand him.
The more you understand his unique astrological blueprint, the easier it will be to get along with your Taurus man.

Distancing Yourself From A Taurus Man — When To Walk Away From A Taurus Man?
If you’re someone who likes your man to check in with you once a day, let him know. He may not know how to best support you, and you can’t expect him to act as someone else did in the past. Make it clear what will help you feel safe and secure in the relationship, and ask what you can do to make him feel the same way.
If he doesn’t correspond well with you and you have a total mismatch of expectations, this would be a sign that you should walk away from your Taurus man.
A Taurus is not cut out for this sort of life, and once real feelings are off the table, he’ll become confused, jealous, resentful, and impossible to put up with.
If you don’t feel appreciated, if you constantly chase his love, affection, and attention, sometimes the real closure to this story is realizing you deserve better.

Taurus men take their time to observe a prospective partner, and they examine all the evidence you present to them as they weigh up the potential of a romance to become a stable relationship.

Does Your Taurus Man Disappear After Intimacy?
Does your Taurus man pull away or get quiet when you’ve just had a deep emotional connection? Or 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.
It will stop your Taurus man from pulling back when you begin feeling closer. And it will accomplish in only 30 days.
So no more crying yourself to sleep when your Taurus 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.
