A Taurus man not texting back can be so frustrating. You feel like the two of you have a good thing going on, but his inconsistency and impulsivity drive you mad. We’ve all been there when a Taurus man ignores your texts, it can be so painful.
Why is a Taurus man not responding to texts? The moment you think you have him hooked, he’s gone off and now he’s ignoring you. It hurts! The dating world can be cruel these days—instant messaging has had an enormous impact on romantic communication, for better and for worse!
As a relationship astrologer, I meet a lot of women feeling lost and uncertain about how to respond when a Taurus man goes cold via text. It’s hard not to overanalyze every little word and try to guess the tone of his messages.
The truth is, women are just generally better at communication—face to face and online. Most Taurus men take forever to text back and they just don’t think about how their texts may be affecting you. It’s a skill they’re learning as they go along.
Texting has truly reshaped the landscape of modern relationships, hasn’t it?
According to a Mobile Romance study, it’s fascinating to discover that relationships that start and grow through texts might actually stand a good chance at longevity. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the perplexing scenario when a Taurus man goes mute on your texts. One day he’s all responsive, and the next, it’s radio silence. Navigating the emotional waters of texting in the realm of romance can be quite the enigma.
So, when your Taurus guy goes a bit cold, how can you turn it around? How can you reverse the situation without seeming needy? Being chased by a Taurus man is heavenly, being ignored is not.
Let’s look at signs of why a Taurus man stopped texting you and what you can do when a Taurus man ignores your texts.
Why Is A Taurus Man Ignoring My Texts? 5 Possible Reasons
1. He Is Busy With Work
Taurus men tend to strive for success and financial security for the future. That also means that it’s a top priority for him. Until he has his nest egg built, he will remain this way.
When he’s working overtime or working more than one job, your Taurus man tends to not respond to your text messages. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about you though. How a Taurus man in a relationship behaves can be confusing at times. He might be super dedicated to you one day, only to seem distant the day after.
It’s really hard not to take this personally, but this is who he is. Once you realize that he’s super busy with work or projects, you’ll be able to relax when your Taurus doesn’t text back quickly enough (or sometimes at all).
2. He’s Upset With You
When a Taurus man doesn’t text back, it might be because he is hurt by something you said or he’s angry. It takes a lot to hurt a Taurus man or to piss him off, however. He’s actually pretty patient but if you do it too often, he will snap back.
A Taurus man is known to be the strong, silent type, so he will go quiet and ignore your texts for sure if being upset with you. He has to think about what has happened and what he wants going forward.
Overthinking is another one of the famous traits of the Taurus man. If you’ve done something he doesn’t like, he will wonder if you’re a good fit for him or if he should walk away.
3. He Is Moody
Taurus men can be moody sometimes, but thankfully not as often as other signs. When he does have a bad day at work or a bad week, a Taurus man may not feel much like communicating.
He won’t talk about his feelings with you until he has worked it out in his own head. When he does approach you, you need to be caring and understanding.
Whatever you do, don’t chew him out for not getting back to you or he will totally let you go. Just tell him you’ve missed him and were concerned with what was going on with him. He’ll probably apologize for his absence and suggest things to make it up to you.
4. He Thinks You Text Him Too Much
The Taurus man isn’t really big on text messaging in the first place. When you’re texting him often each day, your Taurus is put off by this. You seem clingy or needy which isn’t what a Taurus man likes.
Your Taurus may stop responding to all your texts if you don’t pull back a bit. He will need a bit of space to feel as though everything is alright.
I’m not saying to quit texting him completely. I’m just saying instead of texting him five or more times a day, cut it down to just once. If he doesn’t answer then you don’t text again until the next day.
You might go a few days without texting. He will see this as healthy and normal for a relationship. Often a Taurus man just needs a bit of time off from the responsibility of a relationship to get his own life together. It doesn’t mean he’s done forever.

5. He Has Lost Interest In You
I brought this topic up last because I don’t ever want you to lose hope. The truth is, the Taurus man is very picky in choosing a mate. If there is anything he doesn’t like about you, he may not let it go.
It may drive a Taurus man to pull away from you which then means not responding to your messages and not reaching out at all with you. He should just tell you what he feels but he’s not forthcoming with his feelings and finds it easier to just ignore you until you reach the point where you break it off finally.
You can test this theory by cutting back on your texts or by going silent for a week at a time then when you do reach out, be very direct with what you feel and what you want.
If a Taurus man keeps ignoring you and you don’t hear back from him in a month’s time then it’s probably best to cut him loose and move on. He may reach out another time, but there’s no guarantee.

Taurus Man Stopped Texting Me After We Slept Together — What Should I Do?
There are many reasons why a Taurus man stopped texting after you slept together, he may have felt like the sex didn’t live up to his imagination, or he felt like he couldn’t satisfy you, or he may just want to sleep with you once and that is it.
A Taurus man not texting you says a lot about him and is no way a reflection of you. His communication skills suck, seriously! You are obviously dealing with a really immature Taurus man who needs to learn how to treat people better.
Taurus man’s communication style can be quite challenging to understand, especially because of the fixed quality of this zodiac sign.
So, figuring out what to do next can be daunting, but first ask yourself, would you actually want to see him after he treated you like this in the first place? It is a different story if neither of you have texted at all, he may be thinking the same thing about you as well!
If you feel like it, you can always reach out to him first and tell him that you had a good time. If you hear from him again, then he’s obviously not a bad guy, but if you don’t hear from him I would seriously cut your losses and try to forget about him. He is clearly not someone you should keep around.
The most important thing is that you don’t blame yourself and you find a way in which you can walk away from this experience with your head held high.

Here’s What To DO When A Taurus Man Ignores Your Texts
While you’re waiting for the Taurus man to tie up his loose ends, you might be struggling to find a way to cope, especially if the two of you were texting fervently before he fell off. You might be consumed with thoughts of what he’s up to, driving yourself totally insane.
This is why I must recommend that you find ways to keep your mind off of his absence. It’s difficult to do, but you won’t do yourself any favors by asking yourself over and over what went wrong.
Take up a hobby or get lost in a new favorite book or tv show. You’ll feel accomplished indulging in something that brings you joy while also keeping your head clear of self-defeating thoughts.
If those forms of distraction aren’t working then call a friend or family member to vent about your frustrations. This will remind you that people are still on your side and that the Taurus man isn’t all that there is to life.

Ask If He’ll Hang Out IRL
So, you’ve been hands off for a while with your Taurus man, and you’ve still hardly heard a peep from him. It might be time to start asking if texting just isn’t his jam. There are still some people who aren’t big fans of it!
Taurus is a more conservative sign who is slow to change, so if any sign would have an issue moving forward into new ways of communicating, Taurus would be it.
It could pay to try another method. Consider asking him to hang out whenever you’d like to talk to him. Hanging out in person is much more on the Taurus’ level since he’d prefer tangible and real conversation. He might even be grateful that you asked first to hang out!
Consider something low key when you first get together. Ask the Taurus what his favorite café or coffee shop is and try meeting up there. Taurus is sure to know some good spots since he’s a total foodie.
You might find that he says yes to hanging out. Perhaps the roadblock was simply that he was uncomfortable with texting itself. In this case, the two of you still have a chance to make it work.
Ask Him Why He Stopped Texting
If you’ve tried everything else and you’re still not getting any feedback from the Taurus man, it might be time to approach the issue head on. Taurus doesn’t mince words when they have something to say, so it’s important that you don’t either. Get to the root of why he’s not interested.
Ask the Taurus directly why he’s ignoring your messages. Don’t ask “Was it something that I did?” or otherwise put the blame on you. This gives the Taurus an out from being totally honest with you. Instead, ask directly “Why have you stopped texting me?” This acknowledges his lack of engagement in an honest way.
You might find out that he’s simply been very busy but he’d still like to work on things with you. Perhaps your Turus man is not good at texting. Or maybe he needs to be honest about how much your Taurus man really likes you. Either way, it’s my hope that this technique forces a needed conversation so that the two of you can move forward.
Think About Calling It Quits
If you’ve tried everything else that I’ve listed and the Taurus man still hasn’t given you anything to work with, then it’s time to ask yourself the tough question: Do I continue trying?
I’d advise that you cut your losses and find someone who better meets your needs. A potential relationship includes two people… you can’t make it work when you’re the only one putting in effort! It’s a sad conclusion to come to, but necessary in order to spare your self-respect and dignity.
I’d follow up your decision by texting the Taurus man one final time letting him know the decision you’ve made. This will let him know that if he tries to fire things up with you again it may not be too well received.
You can always leave a caveat in your farewell text that says he can follow up with you if he ever gets more availability – but I wouldn’t. If he wants you then he will find time for you. If you’re not his priority now, then you probably won’t ever be.
When A Taurus Man Ignores Your Text — Should I Give Him Space To Figure Out What He Wants?
Taurus is not a mysterious sign. His actions very much reflect what his desires are. Taurus may not be speedy, but he knows the best way to get what he wants. If your Taurus man is not reaching out, then you can assume that something else has taken priority at this time.
It sucks to know that something has taken precedence over talking to you, but who knows? This thing could be very important to him. He may just need some time to work on this other priority before returning to you.
Taurus has a strong work ethic. They’d prefer to get everything on their plate finished before moving on to what they enjoy. After all, it’s hard to enjoy what you love when there are looming responsibilities hanging over your head.
Consider giving the Taurus space and time to himself right now. There is a reason for everything that the Taurus does, so keep that in mind before you assume the worst!
Your Taurus Man Will Text You Quickly When You Do This…
It can be so frustrating to send your Taurus man a text message and see “seen”… But then have no reply for hours or maybe even days.
Why in the world would he do this?
You might start feeling anxious or wondering if he even cares at ALL!
Unfortunately, a lot of dating advice written for men in general just WON’T work with Taurus.
They are wired a bit differently than men of other sun signs. And if you treat your Taurus man the same as other men, you might lose him forever.
There are so many dating coaches that tell you exactly what to do when you text your man… And what NOT to do.
Unfortunately, their advice can REALLY backfire with a Taurus.
I don’t want you to drive him away… Especially when it can be incredibly easy to capture his heart through text messages…
If you know what you are doing!
Don’t worry, I’ve got your back!
When you know EXACTLY what to text him… and what to NEVER text him… He will be putty in your hands. And he’ll make sure to reply to you quickly and lovingly.
