The zodiac sign Scorpio, which includes anyone born from October 23 to November 22, are known to be a very intense, territorial and passionate people.
I know this first-hand because I am a Scorpio, and ultimately I do not disagree with these character traits.
We are the kind of people who stand back and watch others in an attempt to figure out who they are, before deciding whether or not they are trustworthy people.
As a Scorpio, dating doesn't come easy.
We aren't affectionate people and if you mess up, we won't forgive you very easily.
If you find yourself dating a Scorpio, here are some things to keep in mind:
Scorpios are extremely intuitive people.
We can tell almost instantly if a relationship is working out or not. We listen to what you say and how you say it. We watch how you speak, and the various topics you are passionate about.
We want to understand who you are before we jump into a relationship with you. If you are honest with a Scorpio, he or she will see it and take note of it.
Once befriended by a Scorpio, he or she is extremely loyal and territorial.
Scorpios are incredibly passionate about everything they do, which makes their loyalty seem a little intense sometimes. It might come off as overprotective, but that is not the case.
We aren't trying to protect you, we're trying to keep you in our lives because we appreciate the person you are. Just show your loyalty back and we will see it, thus allowing us to trust you, which isn't easy for a Scorpio.
While Scorpios are extremely private people, we like to know everything there is to know about you.
Scorpios are known to be extremely private people.
We don't like to share what is truly going on in our mind. We believe that when a person knows too much about us, they can and will us it against us.
The reason we believe that is because we are the people who do that to others.
The flip side is, while we don't want to tell you anything about us, we want you to be comfortable telling us everything about you.
It is difficult for us to trust others, but if you open up to us, it is more likely that we will feel secure in opening up to you.
Scorpios only know one language: sarcasm.
If you don't have a good sense of humor, or aren't comfortable with someone who won't ever give you up a straight up answer, a Scorpio is not for you.
We only know how to answer questions with a smirk and a sarcastic comment.
It's definitely part of us not wanting to open up just yet, but also we don't tend to take life too seriously. We want to be with someone who can give it just as much as they can take it.
Being able to understand and accept our sarcasm is a big deal for a Scorpio, so if you can't do that, move on.
Scorpios like to be dominant in a relationship.
Scorpio's always want to have the upper hand.
We love the feeling of being the one in the relationship who holds the power.
Allowing us to take the lead shows that you trust our judgment. It also helps if you let us be dominant in the bedroom, just saying.
Speaking of sex, Scorpios are known to be the sexiest sign in the zodiac. Anything you ever read about a Scorpio will have something to do with sex.
We are known to be the most aggressive and intense lovers. I believe this stems from our intense passion in a relationship. We have to let that passion out somewhere, right?
Having sex with a Scorpio will be an exhilarating experience on both ends if you just let us take control. We know exactly what we want, and after studying you as (all Scorpios do), we know exactly what you want as well.
Trust me on this one.
Scorpios are vindictive and unforgiving as they come.
Going along with the fact that we like to be the dominant one in a relationship, we are also the type of people to hold a grudge for as long as we deem necessary.
While it may seem like we have forgotten about something terrible you did in the past, we haven't. We will hold it inside us until the right moment comes along for us to use this misstep of yours in vengeance. Don't ever lie to a Scorpio because being the intuitive people that we are, we will find out the truth and use it against you.
All in all, Scorpio's can be a great significant other, but if you cross us we won't take it lightly.
A relationship with a Scorpio can be an amazing thing when we take down our guard and let you in, but be warned.
If you do cross a Scorpio in any way, we will have no problem tearing you apart. It is both a blessing and a curse. We are so independent and aware of our surroundings that when we are hurt, we take it completely to heart.
We can't help but feel totally betrayed, and when we do, we will use anything we can to make you feel the same pain. We want you to feel how we feel, and while that may not be the best approach, it is how a Scorpio's mind works.
So if you are planning on dating a Scorpio, keep these things in mind and you will experience a Scorpio at his or her finest.
It may seem intense at first, but take it from someone who knows: It can and will be worth it.
