Taurus Season (April 20.-May 20) is upon us and if someone under this sign has caught your attention, be prepared for comfort. Those born under this sun sign are the homebodies of the zodiac and while they may step out every now and then, home is truly where their heart is.
With that being said, the Taurus man or woman takes pride in keeping things in order, especially when it comes to their place of residence. Known as the nurturers of the zodiac, Tauruses love—being and making—people feel comfortable. They’re represented by “the bull” and come with a significant dose of stubbornness, but it’s a small price to pay for the love and service they give when motivated to do so. To find out what else they love and how to snag one, peep the five ways below. Trust me, he or she will be yours in no time—well a little time (wink wink).
1) Smell good and keep a clean and neat home.
Everyone likes a great smelling man or woman, but some signs aren’t as particular when it comes to scents. The Taurus man or woman loves when their mate goes the extra mile …meaning beyond just soap and water. Great smelling perfumes, colognes, after shaves, body washes, lotions and overall hygiene drives them nuts. Tauruses have an unusually keen sense of smell, so make sure you are fresh and clean at all times. This goes for your home as well. Seek to minimize pet odors and garbage stenches. Nice fresh linen scents are your friend. Spend that extra dough for the expensive laundry detergent and don’t forget the fabric softener either. Your soon-to-be bull loves soft, great smelling fabrics and trust me, the extra $2 is well worth it.
2) Bring your appetite.
Tauruses are the kings and queens of grazing and love a good meal. Whether you decide to go out for food at a fancy restaurant or simply stay in and dine, be prepared to eat! You don’t necessarily have to be as much of a fan of food as your Taurus crush, but do plan to dine out with them …a lot!
3) Patience is the name of the game.
Your Taurus boo isn’t the most spontaneous person. They require a tremendous amount of patience, detail and consistency in order to feel comfortable and secure. Getting to know a Taurus man or woman takes time and earning their trust will as well. Most Tauruses are emotionally strong by nature, but that doesn’t mean they do not have a vulnerable side. Tauruses are into long relationships and a little bit of patience will go a long way.
4) And so is seduction …
The Taurus lover likes to take his or her time when making love. Hell, they will make love to you even if they’re not in love with you; that’s how physical they are. Being romantic is nice, but being sexy and sensual is more important when attempting to snag this earth sign. Devote your full attention on them and put in the work to show them that you appreciate them choosing you as a mate or lover. This is the time to cut loose. Tauruses love to tap into as many senses as they can during sex, so don’t hold back.
5) Do not attempt to change or improve them.
Not attempting to change someone is a given with any sign, but especially for a Taurus. The last thing you want to do is make them feel like they’re not good enough. Tauruses may appear to be easy-going on the outside, but they’re actually very critical thinkers and have a strong sense of self-awareness most of the time. You’d do best not to mess with them in this regard.
Tauruses aren’t very friendly, can appear to be extremely bossy and will stubborn march to the beat of their own drums. But one thing I will say about them is that they love you wholeheartedly when they determine you are worthy. If you are lucky enough to snag a Taurus, make sure you hold on to them. They make great long-term mates once they decide to.
