Why Does A Taurus Man Go Hot And Cold?
Taurus men are usually some of the most consistent and reliable guys in the Zodiac. They pride themselves on being loyal, reliable, and very independent. However, some of their experiences may have tainted their view on love and this is why they act out of character.
Most Taurus men will have had the experience of having their heart broken by a woman and for a Taurus man, it is particularly difficult to let go once he has given his heart to someone. The pain of investing in someone and then not having it work is a lot for the Taurus man to handle.
This is when a Taurus man disappears, he usually feels quite close and intimate with a woman and then when his feelings become too much for him it can leave him overwhelmed and out of control.
He would rather run away than face having to deal with the potential of getting his heart broken again. The truth is, he is acting out of fear. It can be very scary for a man to be vulnerable with intimacy. This isn’t something they are very comfortable with.
Here’s more on what to do when a Taurus man pulls away.
Taurus Man Acts Interested, Then Disappears — 3 Most Common Reasons Why A Taurus Man Disappears
1. He Jumped The Gun, Now Regrets It
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.
In fact; this is often what happens when a Taurus man comes on so strong and then suddenly disappears. It leaves many women very confused and hurt. He doesn’t mean to do this but sometimes his self-worth is involved here.
When he meets a woman who is loving, adores him, and seems to have it all together; he feels he may have found the right woman for himself. Sounds romantic right? This is when he pours his heart out and women think the world of him.
Women fall in love with a Taurus man when he lays it on thick. It’s hard to resist him. However; he begins to think about the ramifications of his actions and then he decides he needs time to think.
He’ll do this by taking the time and not letting the woman know what his mental state is and what is going on. He’ll just stop talking, will be less attentive or affectionate, or will stop talking for a while.
Some Taurus men disappear altogether until they figure out, what they want, and that the woman he let go of was probably really good for him. This is when he’ll re-emerge and be all hot and heavy again.
The bottom line here is that Taurus man should never jump into a relationship quickly. He shouldn’t but sometimes he does. If you’re the target of his affection; you may need to put the brakes on yourself.
Just be careful because if you hold him off too much; he may decide that you don’t really want him anymore and will disappear thus moving on. Just ask him to go a little slower so you can really get to know each other.
2. He Feels Overwhelmed And Needs Space
The Taurus man is often a hopeless romantic. This means that he is quite keen on the idea of love and finding a mate, he will put his heart and soul into the relationship, especially at the beginning stages when things are a lot simpler.
But when his true feelings start to emerge and he realizes he is at risk of possibly falling in love, it can definitely freak him out and make him feel a little trapped and overwhelmed. Falling in love definitely makes the Taurus man feel out of control.
And feeling out of control is a nightmare for a Taurus man. He likes to feel safe and secure, this is why you may have noticed how important his routine is for him. But, I digress, when a Taurus man feels overwhelmed he will often disappear because he needs space.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, he just needs a moment to breathe gather his thoughts, and figure out what is going on between the two of you. Taurus men need a lot of space to relax and feel at ease.
This may feel a little jarring especially if the two of you have been spending a lot of time together. It can feel quite painful if he pulls away from you. But, take this as an opportunity for you to figure things out for yourself as well.
Taking space doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Focus on yourself and remember to take things slow with your Taurus man. He usually takes his time, this is no reflection on you but him staying true to himself.

3. He Feels Too Insecure Or Jealous Around You
One thing you really need to understand about the Taurus man—he has quite a big inclination to feel insecure and jealous in his relationships. This again comes back to him liking to be in control of everything.
When he feels out of control it makes him feel extremely insecure and it can be overwhelming to him to have a knock to his confidence. Being with someone feels like a threat to his security sometimes and this is why he has a tendency to run away and disappear.
This feeling of insecurity or jealousy definitely isn’t a feeling he enjoys. It can be very overwhelming and make him feel like a monster and that is why he prefers to step away and not have you see this side of him.
It is really difficult for him to control his jealousy. Any little thing can set him off and make him feel terrible about himself. It can be the smallest thing that sets him off and makes him go into a spiral.
It can be you simply talking to another man to him perceiving you as not giving him any attention. He finds this really tough to cope with and this is why he will run away and disappear. Especially if he perceives that you have hurt his ego.
If a Taurus man disappears after intimacy, it is often because he feels jealous, especially if he knows that you are sleeping with other people.
What Does It Mean When My Taurus Man Says He Loves Me, Then Disappears?
Taurus men are often a lot more insecure than most women realize. They often expect commitment the moment they meet a person they have a spark with. However, when they feel that things aren’t reciprocated they can often act out of ego and insecurity and just cut the other person off.
Is it possible that your Taurus man was quite vulnerable with you, and you perhaps didn’t respond in the way that he wanted you to? Taurus men aren’t really the type of guys to mess a woman around, when they do, it is out of insecurity.
It is very possible that your Taurus man thinks you don’t feel the same way about him and because of this he wants to protect himself from getting hurt even further. Love is all the Taurus man wants in a relationship, but it also makes him feel really insecure.
Being with this earthy Zodiac sign means that a lot of what you have to do initially is to give him a lot of reassurance about your feelings. He needs to know that you are into him as much as he is into you.
Of course, there will be the Taurus man who is an anomaly who might just say that he has feelings for you to get you in bed, but these Taurus men are quite rare.
Taurus Man Disappears And Comes Back Without An Explanation — Should I Accept Him?
Taurus men are always following routine and they like to stick with what they know. If your Taurus man is making a habit of disappearing and coming back with an explanation and you accept this behavior, you are only reinforcing this habit in him.
Have a discussion with your Taurus man and let him know that you aren’t okay with hot and cold behavior. He needs to make a decision whether or not he wants to be in your life but you will no longer accept this from him because you deserve more.
You can give him one more chance, but if your Taurus man continues with his hot and cold game, tell him you are out and have better things to do with your time. Accept only the best kind of treatment.

What To Do When A Taurus Man Becomes Cold And Distant
When a Taurus man becomes cold and distant it can feel really heartbreaking. He is usually so good at showing up and being a consistent force in your life, that when he goes cold it can be discombobulating.
It is very possible that your Taurus man is acting this way because something is going on in his personal life. Your best course of action is probably to let him know that he has your support, but that you are going to respect his need for space.
Sometimes a Taurus man simply needs to connect with himself again to help figure out what is going on in his life. He needs a lot of downtime because most Taurus men are actually very introverted and need sufficient time on their own or else they become cranky.
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.
