If you’re a woman in a relationship with a Taurus man, you need to pay attention to your Taurus partner.
Make sure that he’s not one of the four types I’m going to outline below.
These guys are bad news as far as your emotions are concerned. They might have their act together as far as finances and social standing are concerned.However, when it comes to matters of the heart, they are off-limits.
At least, they should be. Why?
They can be quite toxic for both the growth of your relationship as well as you own personal emotional evolution.
If you’re looking to mature in your relationship, make sure that your Taurus guy doesn’t fit any of these four profiles.
Type #1: Mr. Too-Cool-For-Emotions
The classic Taurus personality is all about control. There’s an inner core of strength that Taurus people, especially men, project.
This is not fake or an act. This is real. This inner strength separates them from other horoscope signs that like to play a role.
I am of course talking about the Leo and Aries. Leo and Aries people can look as confident as a Taurus.
However, deep down inside, they are driven by a deep sense of insecurity and a sense of inadequacy.
They view their projections of strength as somehow correcting or offsetting the void that they feel inside.
There’s none of this with the Taurus. The Taurus is both strong inside and strong outside.
The downside to this for some Taurus people is they think that the outside perception is all that defines them.
In other words, if people think that they’re emotionally strong, that’s all they are. In other words, they don’t want to betray that public perception, so they basically develop some sort of distance from emotional outbursts or emotional displays.
In other words, they become too cool for emotions.
This may be okay at first but if that person doesn’t really let you get under his skin and let you in on the fact that he does have emotions, then you’re just wasting your time.
You’re barking up the wrong tree. Why?
It’s going to be very hard for you to develop a mutually sustaining and healthy emotional relationship with such a person.
In some cases, these guys are completely clueless that this is what they’re doing. They simply think that this is what’s expected of them. This is what defines a real man in their minds
Type #2: Mr. My-Career-Comes-Before-Everything
The Taurus is an earth sign. It is very pragmatic. It is driven by practical concerns like money, social status, and advancement.
Truly successful Taurus people are able to balance their careers and financial lives with all other aspects of their lives. It’s all about balance and maturing at all these different levels and different areas.
Unfortunately, if you meet a guy who defines himself around his career, then you’re dealing with the wrong Taurus.
You’re dealing with a very imbalanced Taurus who believes that money is the measure of everything of value in life. You’re dealing with a Taurus who judges people based on what they do and the social status of what they do.
In other words, this is a manifestation of the Taurus personality that is completely materialistic.
You have to remember that there’s nothing with being a materialist. This means you’re just pragmatic, or you pay attention to practical elements like bills being paid, moving up a corporate hierarchy, so on and so forth.
However, if you’re materialistic, it means that your emotional and spiritual compass revolves primarily on material things.
In other words, the more money you have, the better of a person you are. Put it another way, you would only want to be friends with people who have money or who have power.
Unfortunately, Mr. My-Career-Comes-Before-Everything tends to lean towards that direction.
This can be quite toxic for your relationship because he would only think that your relationship is valuable based on either the social prestige you bring to the table or your ability to match his earning power.
A variant of this is he will only value you depending on how good you look. Once you lose your looks through your age, you’re worthless to him.
Type #3: Mr. Protector
At first glance, this type of Taurus male seems to be heaven-sent. This guy seems to be emotionally authentic.
This person seems to have all the classic characteristics of a Taurus in that he has a solid career, he takes care of business, and he has done well for himself.
However, if you dig deeper, and you spend more time with this person, he actually turns out to be the worst kind of Taurus. Why?
He smothers you. He becomes a control freak. His idea of protection means he has to control every aspect of your life.
You have to call in and check with him. Moreover, if you think of doing something, you have to first get his approval.
In other words, he wants to become your father or your supervisor all wrapped in one.
This person doesn’t love you as much as he loves the sense of control. This person is very toxic for your emotional development.
Type #4: Mr. The-Man-My-Daddy-Wasn’t
This Taurus has serious daddy issues. He is able to achieve a lot of life because he is constantly comparing himself against his father.
Maybe his father was very irresponsible and didn’t take care of his family’s material needs. Maybe his father was content to work a low-level job and never really amounted to much in life.
Whatever that perceived shortcoming is, this Taurus male makes it his life’s work to always beat his father.
Unfortunately, this type of person is going to poison your relationship because he seems to be laboring under such emotional weight that he always has to prove himself.
In many cases, your love and acceptance is not enough. He seems to be jousting with the ghost of a father that he both hates and loves at the same time.
This person has serious issues, and it’s not your job to help him emotionally mature.
Maybe once he gets his act together as far as his head is concerned, you can give him the time of day. Otherwise, he should be emotionally off-limits to you.
