Are you struggling with a Taurus man who seems to have gone cold on you? Are you curious to see if maybe he misses you from afar? While it always seems tricky to deal with this kind of delicate situation, understanding the reasons behind his behavior can help bring the two of you closer.
Let’s explore what could be going on inside the mind of a Taurus man when he pulls away, how to tell if he misses you, and how to make him miss you if all else fails.
What You Should Know About Taurus Men
Men born under the Taurus sign are hard-working, reliable, and fiercely loyal. While they can’t be described as spontaneous or adventurous, preferring routine over change, their commitment to getting things done is unparalleled. Once they take up a task, they will see it to completion.
Despite being timid by nature, those with a Taurean personality can always draw upon an inner strength that helps them succeed despite life’s unexpected turns. They are kind, genuine people. Being in a romantic relationship with a Taurus man is a rare treat filled with love, passion, tender moments, and sweetly sentimental surprises.
How Do Taurus Men Act In Love?
The Taurus man may take things slow initially, but when love is in the air, he will want to spend all his free time with you.
One of the best ways to be sure he’s in love is to pay attention to his gift-giving habits. Also, pay attention to how sentimental he acts, how often he’s willing to go the extra mile to help you, or his efforts to make you smile.
He’s a genuine and sweet soul, and this will really show up once he’s taken a shine to you. If he seems happy to initiate planning dates, that’s another great indicator. He loves staying home for cozy nights, but would be willing to change that up for the right person.
But don’t dismiss a quiet night at his place. Taurus’ abode is a true haven where you will find relaxation, comfort, cuddly sheets, fluffy pillows, good taste in art, and an irresistible bed that will remind you more of a cozy nest than anything else. Their homes reflect the charm of comfy cuteness instead of glam Instagram-ready interiors, plus their cooking skills are always top-notch.
If you want to show some love back, ask him for some of his favorite recipes (or inquire about his favorite dishes, finding recipes later on your own time) and make them for him next time you’re staying at either of your places.
How To Make A Taurus Man Miss You
Give Him the Opportunity to Miss You
You have to give him a chance to pine after you. That means you can’t be with him all the time and always be available to him. Filling up your schedule with fun plans will show the Taurus man that you’re an independent person who has a full life without him.
Hike with friends, have lunch with family, or explore a new city solo. Do whatever makes you happy. You can post your adventures on social media or casually mention your latest outing the next time you see him. If he knows how much fun you are having in his absence, it will leave an impression of him wanting more time together.
Avoid giving in to the temptation to keep free space available for him to join in. Permit yourself to be bold, take risks, have fun, and enjoy new experiences on your own, all while setting boundaries that allow him to cultivate feelings of admiration (and longing). Even if things don’t work out with him, you’ll have some great memories for yourself to enjoy.
Give Thoughtful, Sentimental Gifts to Him
If you want to leave a Taurus man smitten by you, surprise him with something meaningful. Material possessions are a surefire way to show your affection. The more thoughtful the gift, the better. He picks up all the little details around you, so please do the same for him.
You don’t have to go all out on an expensive gift. A home-cooked meal or curating a sweet playlist uniquely tailored to his taste in music would be enough. Hand-written love notes, flowers, and chocolates are always well received by him too.
The perk of dating a Taurus man is that he never sees kind gestures as “sappy” or “too much.” You won’t have to worry that your gifts are “too feminine” either. He sees the gesture for what it is and is always appreciative. Being thoughtful goes a long way with him.
For extra brownie points, give him something that matches his personality and decor for his home. He loves turning his home into an oasis and a snuggly den, so help him curate that a little bit.
Every time he sees your gift, it will make him think about you, and he won’t be able to help himself from missing you.
Be Open, Honest, and Vulnerable
Emotional intelligence and vulnerability are bright green flags for Taurus men. Showing him these traits makes him feel more connected to you. On top of that, he will constantly think about you and want to be near you more, especially after you’ve made a meaningful emotional connection.
If you’re having problems connecting with him, don’t be afraid to open up about what makes you unique. Share the deepest depths of yourself and let your passions speak for themselves. He’ll appreciate all the little quirks that makeup who you are.
Show him insight into things you like, such as art, books, or music that piques your interest. Send over pictures of creations and recordings made just by you. He’ll never forget that.
You have a fantastic opportunity here to form an incredible connection. Do so boldly. Being fearless here will pay off immensely.
Respect His Boundaries
It’s easy to accidentally push your way into his life and try to get his attention, especially if you’re interested in a romantic relationship with your Taurus man. Resist the urge.
While the past may be weighing on your mind, those with a Taurus partner should focus on the present interactions. Trying too hard to get closure from these men often leads nowhere. Instead of rehashing what has been said or done in past conversations and arguments, concentrate your energy on showing them how you are behaving now, because this is something they tend to respond to well.
If he feels safe and respected by you, expect him to be much more open-minded about having a relationship with you. Moreover, being respectful of his boundaries will really stick with him. Consequently, this leads to him thinking of you more, followed by feelings of missing you too.
Let Him Chase You
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and hard work makes victory taste sweeter.
When it comes to a Taurus man, patience is the name of the game. If you try and rush him into establishing (or reestablishing) your relationship too quickly, he may be intimidated by this sudden pressure.
It’s best to let him take charge when it comes to forging ahead with any emotional investments. Show him you care, but give yourself plenty of breathing room for whatever happens next.
Taking things slow will give him the space he needs to be comfortable with you and make any relationship advancements on his terms when he wants to and isn’t feeling the pressure.
Every once in a while, it’s okay to provide gentle reminders that show how much you’ve thought about him. If he’s ready for something more serious again, he’ll at least know where things stand between you two.
How To Tell When A Taurus Man Misses You
He Makes an Effort to Connect
If a Taurus man misses you, he will call, text, or DM you. If he’s feeling shy, he may only initiate with a quick “hey” or a single emoji, but that’s enough to open the door.
He doesn’t initiate a conversation like this unless he has thoroughly thought things through and strongly desires to be near you again. He definitely misses you, and you should take this as a compliment if nothing else.
If he isn’t feeling as bold or brave, he may use your mutual friends or family to start the conversation. He may check up on you through them and then subtly ask them to “say hi” to you for him.
As casual as this may seem, it is a sign he has been thinking of you and wants you back in his life. If you’re feeling brave, take a chance and call or send him a message.
He Starts Showing Up Everywhere
If you haven’t seen him in a while, then he suddenly seems to be everywhere all at once, that is a strong indicator that he misses you and is trying to see you again.
He may start showing up at your favorite lunch place during break, walking the same trails as you usually do on the weekends, or making himself more noticeable on social media. You may see him more there liking posts and commenting more frequently or just posting more often than usual to try and get your attention. If he engages with older posts, he wants you to know that he’s “lurking” on your page and thinking of you. That is his timid way of getting the ball rolling with you.
Almost every social media platform has a stories feature. Post something there and check to see if he is one of your frequent viewers. If he initiates any conversation there, that’s another definite sign he’s been missing you. That will let you know a lot about his thoughts on you.
He is Protective of You
If he still likes and misses you, a Taurus man will go out of his way to protect and care for you any way he can. He is happy to shut down any gossip about you, defend your name, or rescue you when you need it the most. He still deeply cares about you and wants to help you, especially if he misses you.
You can be extra sure that he still misses you if his actions are much more grand or noticeable. It’s one thing for him to pay for your coffee if you bump into each other at the cafe. It’s an entirely different beast if he drives across town in the middle of a workday to help you with a vehicle breakdown or offers to pet sit for you while you take an emergency trip out of town.
His Life Starts to Develop to Better Match Your Life
If you previously dated and then broke up, or even if you’ve just spent enough time together as platonic friends, a Taurus man who misses you will start to listen and pay attention to what you have to say.
You will know he likes you and wants you near him when he begins to change his lifestyle to suit yours.
For instance, you may have told him you aren’t willing to date someone with a job that requires a lot of travel. If he suddenly changes careers to be home daily, then he may still be interested in you. Or maybe you told him that smoking bothers you. If he quits, that’s another strong indicator.
You can quietly keep these observations to yourself, or if you’re feeling bold, ask him what’s up and what he’s thinking. You don’t have to mention a potential relationship if you don’t want to, but it is a good idea to ask what’s going on.
If you’re feeling brave, tell him you’re proud of his changes and that it makes you happy to see. He won’t be able to get you out of his head after that.
What Does It Mean If A Taurus Man Says He Misses You?
It may seem silly or obvious, but he means it when he says he misses you. He does not say that for the sake of making conversation. More than likely, it was difficult for him to admit something that vulnerable in the first place.
Beyond that, if a Taurus man misses you, this means he would like to have you as a more significant part of his life. If you were romantically involved, or you’ve been steadily growing closer after being friends, it probably means he wants to have a relationship with you.
