Taurus man texting style – What to say
While Taurus men tend to prefer face-to-face over texting, there are some ways to keep his interest in the early stages of dating. Avoid messaging about serious topics, and keep the conversation light and fun.
Make him smile every time he sees a text from you. Cheeky jokes or funny snaps can help him to stay focused on you when you aren’t around. A constant barrage of demands or idle chit-chat will soon turn him off.
Taurus men also love to be complimented, mainly because they can suffer from low self-esteem at times. Keep your compliments light and flirty without getting too intense. Tell him you are thinking about his smile until you meet again or engage his brain with an interesting fact you learned and he’s sure to reply.
Make sure not to double text him. He’ll read that as being too clingy. Although these men can be intensely loyal, they can’t be corned in – you need them to express that freely whenever possible.
Often, Taurus men do not check their phones often, so if he’s not replying don’t fret. Just give him some time. More than likely, you are still a fixture in their mind and they haven’t forgotten you at all.
Asking a Taurus man for advice is another great way to keep a text conversation going. They love to be needed, and asking his opinion will flatter him. Do this especially if you have a question about something that needs fixing or if you’re stuck on a logistical problem.
Letting them flex their intellectual muscle is a great way to subconsciously get them to link you with a feeling of pride and achievement, a fantastic recipe for affection!
Signs that a taurus man has lost interest
When a Taurus man no longer considers you girlfriend material he’ll be sure to let you know – but not by telling you, more likely through his actions.
Taurus men value honesty and won’t be able to hide their true feelings from you by the way they start to interact with you. Before telling you, he’ll start to be less attentive to you and won’t seem to check in as much. He may stop replying to your text messages altogether and his glance will stray towards others if you’re out together.
If your man used to compliment you a lot and the compliments have seemed to stop, he’s probably having second guesses about your relationship. He will also start to cancel plans on you or flake at the last minute. Taurus men can sometimes be self-centered, so he may not know he is hurting you when he does these things.
Sadly, they won’t just come out and say it as others might do. As they do badly with change, the end of a relationship, or flirtation, can be slow to settle. If you are unsure, it’s probably best if you confront them and get things out into the open. It may not be pretty, but it is best to rip that band-aid off at times.
