5 Mistakes You Should Avoid When Taurus Man Is Pulling Away

Is your Taurus man distancing himself from you, and you don’t know what to do? These time-tested tips based on relationship astrology will help you figure out exactly how to turn it around.

It’s a question I hear often: “What should I do when my Taurus man starts to pull away from me?” The first thing I want you to know is that he 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 he has lost his 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.

Know What a Taurus Prides Himself In

A Taurus builds his sense of identity around being reliable. That means he needs to be there when their friends and family are going through a crisis. 

Tauruses never want to put someone else’s life drama out there, so that’s one reason they don’t always explain their distraction. Think about it—would you divulge a family member’s drama? Probably not if you want to protect them.

A Taurus also has a strong need to nurture others, and if someone asks him for help, he really can’t deny them assistance. He will help a stranger mend a broken fence or travel hours just to help someone solve a problem.

And he’ll never do it halfway. He prides himself in making sure a problem is fixed for good, even if that means five trips to the hardware store. This personality trait can be quite time-consuming. 

It could very well be that he’s not losing interest—he’s just being himself and thinking you and he are just fine. Now we need to talk about what you shouldn’t do that could push him away if you’re anxious about his behavior.

Behaviors a Taurus Will Run Away From

It’s no secret a Bull can be stubborn. You must keep this in mind when you’re dealing with any situation between the two of you.

If he is pulling away, your instinct might be to pressure him to hang out with you or talk, but that will only trigger his obstinance. He can’t handle feeling like you’re trying to control him. 

A Taurus needs, more than anything, to feel like he has dominion over his decisions. That means he gets to choose how he thinks, how he feels, and when he does what. If you try to rein him in too much, he’ll head for the hills.

If you want to hang out but he feels he needs to tackle another project or help a friend, don’t take it personally. Being a dependable neighbor, friend, son, brother, etc., is deeply important to him. 

Instead of trying to make the relationship happen on your terms, realize that there’s a reason you fell in love with him, and try to trust in your bond. If he is like most Taurus men, he’s a catch for someone wanting a real romantic gentleman.

These five behaviors will send your Bull running:

Is Your Taurus Man Pulling Away? Don’t Make These 5 Mistakes!

1. Blaming Him For Your Problems

Ladies, don’t tell him 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 him 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, and if you bombard him with messages, it might give him the impression that you’re not stable. He craves level-headedness, so just allow him time to respond without haranguing 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 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.

A Few More Things to Give You Peace of Mind

A Taurus is deliberate in everything he does. He doesn’t rush or cram a million things into the day. He takes his time, and he is thorough. 

That means you may think he’s being distant when he’s just taking care of business at his natural pace. You may be used to more fast-paced people, but your Bull might not realize you’re not used to his speed.

A Taurus is a man of his word. If he has told you things are fine, take his word for it. He is a romantic at heart and seeks long-term companionship, so if he is not by your side at all times, give him the benefit of the doubt that he is still just as committed.

Remember celebrity Taurus Enrique Iglesias? What were his songs about? Not money or himself—they were about love! When you start getting anxious, remember, your Taurus man’s feelings run deep, and he is probably even more of a hopeless romantic than you are.

What If He Really Is Losing Interest?

Taurus Man Pulling Away - Taurus Man Loosing 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 he may have other traits that are strongly influencing 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.

My Final Words of Advice

Take a step back, breathe, and don’t assume that your Taurus man has any idea that you’re all worked up and worried! He truly might just be digging into a new project as he tends to do.

He can be a bit absent-minded that way. If you speak openly and calmly, he will let you know where he stands, but if you’re emotional and not direct, he won’t understand why. Remember: he’s not a mind-reader!

If you’re someone that 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 like 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. 

Having calm conversations like this might take time because he may want to think it over, so to salvage your relationship, be patient with your loyal Taurus man. The more you read about this sign, the easier it will be to understand how he behaves. Please read my guide to understanding your Taurus man, Taurus Man Secrets.

  1. I made a mistake of texting too much. If i didn’t hear from him in a few days i’d be sending him long texts. He told me he rarely read them. As it was too much. Yet if i got worried i’d send another one.
    In the beginning he paid me alot of attention and we’d always text and have long conversations. Spending time together. As the months went on i wouldn’t hear from him for days. In the end he told me i was too controlling and said i treated him like a child. Which i wasn’t doing. He wanted to do his own thing with no pressure he said. So we split up. But then out the blue he’d call me for a chat, he’d say it was for no reason. I knew he must’ve missed me. But then he’d go away again.
    Since then he’d been flirting with female friends online. I have since been friendly with another man. I like him but i don’t love him like i do my Taurus man. Am i doing right making him jealous? Or will that be the nail in the coffin? As i did tell him he is the only man i’ll ever want.

    1. Hi Cheryl!

      Taurus men hate cell phones and text messages. They don’t mind talking on the phone or using it for GPS but they don’t see text messages as significance. I find that nearly all of them are this way. They also back off when they are comfortable with you. They did everything to win you over and once they have you, they can relax, or so they think. If there are ANY issues with him then you need to speak up and tell him what’s wrong. Don’t do the finger pointing thing though or he won’t listen. Try a different approach “you know, I really miss the way we used to talk and spend together. Can we get back to that? I miss you!”. That goes over much better than “you never text me anymore”. See the difference? Don’t play any games. Be a straight shooter with Taurus. That’s what you have to do to get honesty from him and answers.

  2. My Taurus man after asking for space came back, declared his love but told me we are not compatible. What should I do. Broken heart.

    1. Hi Cordelia!

      Wow ok so during his time taking space, he sorted through what he wants, what he had with you and what is realistic. Taurus men’s minds are a bit complicated and if he did find things that didn’t line up in his mind with the two of you then he came to the decision that you two don’t have a chance in the future. I’m not sure if there is anything you can do to change his mind. You could try being friends with him and seeing if he ever turns back but I cannot guarantee he will. I am so very sorry sweetheart. You should find out what man may be best for you. I can do that with astrology. If you are interested, you can always book a VIP consultation with me. I wish you all the love in the universe because you deserve it!

  3. My Taurus man after asking for space came back, declared his love but told me we are not compatible. What should I do. Broken heart.

    1. Hi Adesuwa!

      I see you’ve messaged under two different names. I am so sorry for your heartbreak honey. You deserve better. If he cannot see you as his mate then that is HIS problem. That only means that there is someone else that WILL give you all the love you really desire without questions. Again, I wish you nothing but the best.

  4. Hi Anna,

    I’ve been long distance with my Taurus man for two in a half years. Everything you said about Taurus is true. He said a few weeks ago that he wanted to FaceTime more often and that it’s hard that we don’t get to see each other that often. He’s been sick for the last few weeks and I feel like I’m always reaching out lately. I’m not sure if he is done with the connection or not. He pulls away when he is stressed or not feeling well instead of talking to me so I can help him. I’m kind of stuck and don’t know how to navigate things from here. I know he likes to lead and be in control and I’m an Aries and for mr two in half years if is a long time to decide on the future of this connection.

  5. Hi. I’m a Virgo dating a Taurus. Been distant but good friends with him since sophomore year and currently a freshman in college , he’s had a crush on me for 2 years and didn’t say anything but summer of 2022 we got closer and ended up liking each other ,super clingy but then got comfortable super quick. im super emotional and he’s very strong skinned and I had emotinal trauma from my last relationship so I come off needy and need attention. He has a hard time giving me verbal affection so he shows it thru his actions. We’ve had a few fights were he ignores me for the day but the next morning he bounces back to normal and texts me good morning with hearts , we almost broke up 3 times because of my emotinal problems and he’s stubborn and introverted while I’m extroverted. He’s proven to me his actions match his words and after fights he always comes back but he went MIA on me recently because ever since he got with me the Money that’s he’s saved went down dramatically after getting with me but his love language is gift giving and taking us out to eat , we go out twice a week sometimes 3 & he’s told me he would never ghost me but it’s been 2 days , this isn’t like him , I’m not used to him ghosting me. I find it cruel because he knows how I feel about silent treatment and feel he isn’t considering my feelings. I’m not gonna reach out cus that’ll make things worse but I’m a emotinal Virgo and I’m not sure if I can handle him doing this in the future. He has a lot of doubts about us making it to the future but he stays through the benefit of the doubt. If any updates come up I’ll lyk (12/5/22)
