It's unrealistic to expect your relationship with a Scorpio to be easy. Their whole thought and behavioral patterns are hard to understand, even as an investigative journalist.
But while their darker side is described as vengeful, stubborn and manipulative, Scorpios are undoubtedly the most intriguing, mysterious and inexplicable sign of the zodiac.
Though you're certainly in for a wild ride when you date a Scorpio, if they decide to let you in on their mystery, you're bound to learn a thing or two from each other.
Before you dive in head first, however, here are four things you should remember when it comes to dating a Scorpio:
Well-intentioned idiots will not go past level one.
Draw out the Scorpio's feelings, values and goals to understand their strengths and weaknesses.
Meticulously studying your fellow Scorpio partner will help you understand why they do the things they do: bringing you home a gift for no apparent reason, but later, getting upset for you not getting them a gift or wanting to rip your clothes off for a week straight, but the next week, it's like a drought in your love nest.
Their intense, unyielding nature makes an all-or-nothing type of love.
The thing with Scorpios is, you might look at them as the love of your life one minute, but the next minute, you might want to through them out the window.
A Scorpio woman is as capable of blowing you away with the intensity and depth of her emotions as she is destroying you once you've done her wrong.
At times, Scorpio might seem a bit overwhelming to their partner, especially to more "sedated" signs, but working toward finding a proper balance makes it all worthwhile.
They may not express their emotions, but their actions will tell all.
Scorpios don't disclose their secrets willingly, so you might have to find another tactic to make them talk, rather than expecting them to tell you outright.
But on the other hand, Scorpios are highly intuitive, perceptive and will know your intentions almost too well as the relationship deepens and expands, even without you saying a word. (So don't make a habit of lying — they will know.)
While Scorpios might think and feel deeply, however, they keep it all to themselves. So if you're keen on finding out what they're truly feeling, be patient in peeling through their many layers.
If you're looking for a challenge, you've come to the right place.
While dating a Scorpio certainly presents a unique set of challenges, those challenges will ultimately help you grow in the long run.
And if they weren't the way they are, you'd just be dating a blank, obvious girl or guy who never challenged you at all.
But at the end of the day, the point of being with a Scorpio is just to connect with them and make them feel good, which will make you feel good right back.
In the game of love, opportunity will always knock, but a Scorpio will knock louder.
