10 Reasons To Date A Taurus If You Want The Relationship To Keep Its Spark

by Kelsey OToole

Dating a Taurus woman will propel you to an alternative universe, full of love, passion and some steamy action. Not only will a Taurus woman fulfill your desires selflessly, but she is fiercely loyal and devoted to making your relationship work.

As a Taurus woman myself, I can attest that all of this is factual, so don't fight me on it. Here are 10 reasons why you should date a Taurus woman:

1. A Taurus woman is sensual.

She will want to engage all the senses. So she will set the mood in her home by lighting candles, baking, laying out fur rugs so you can cuddle by the fireplace.

She doesn't care if she's big spoon or little spoon, as long as you two are entwined. She will give you massages, head rubs and foot rubs (you are so lucky) because she wants you to feel good, though she would love a massage in return. But beware, if you don't like hand-holding and constant affection, she will quickly lose interest.

2. A Taurus woman is indulgent.

If you ever meet a more indulgent person than a Taurus, please introduce me, so we can all feel better about ourselves. But I do not believe such a person exists. This woman loves the finer things in life. She will take her coffee strong, her chocolate dark, her wine dry and her men rugged.

Taurus will take herself on a shopping spree, draw a bubble bath and buy herself flowers, not because she has had a really hard day, but because she needs to be pampered regularly.

This is just her lifestyle. It is ingrained in her being, and any sort of stress will throw her out of whack. This means she needs her alone time, so she won't always be all up in your business. Don't question her. Just accept her, and maybe she'll let you add more bubbles to the tub.

3. A Taurus woman is loyal.

If a Taurus woman commits to you, then rest assured she is in it for the long haul. If a Taurus does not see a future, or think you are compatible, she will not waste of second of either of your time. So for this reason, she probably hasn't had many serious relationships. If she says she loves you, then she loves you like crazy and will never betray your trust. This woman will not play with fire.

She sees the line and she doesn't cross it. She will always have your back and be your biggest supporter, motivator and cheerleader. If someone talks badly about those close to her, she will defend them to the death. She will not speak poorly of her friends, family or lover, and thinks badly of people who do.

4. A Taurus woman likes to keep things spicy.

If you don't know where to look for her, she will be the woman eying you seductively, playing a coy game of hide and seek. Find her at a local speakeasy or swanky bar because this woman is all about atmosphere and luxury. She will be indulging in lava cake and drinking red wine beneath a chandelier, or sipping a mojito in a tropical paradise if she has her way. Go say hi. She will adore you for it. Feel free to play games back with her (not mind games), just make sure she knows you're into her.

5. A Taurus woman loves adventure.

A Taurus may be a homebody, but that's because she's made her home her palace. A Taurus loves to explore her kingdom, though. If you suggest quitting everything to travel Europe or Latin America, she will be ecstatic (after some careful financial planning, of course). But if she says she's game, she is game. Her list will probably include St. Tropez, Monaco, Barcelona, the Amalfi Coast and the Greek islands. But those places are awesome, so why would you complain?

Anything that resembles heaven on earth, she will be all over. She may be afraid of things like heights or jumping out of planes, but she wants someone who can bring out the bigger adventures in her and give her confidence. Go zip-lining, snorkeling, surfing or hiking. She will love to try those things, but just not by herself. She needs you.

6. A Taurus woman loves beauty.

This means she will always want to look beautiful for you. A Taurus might have a little bed head and lounge in yoga pants while sipping her morning coffee, but come date night she will be all dolled up. She is proud to be yours. She loves to dress up for herself, but especially for her partner.

She wants you to show her off and admire her beauty; it makes her feel desired. In turn, she will make you feel like a total stud. If you're with her, she really does think you are God's gift to Earth. If that's not sexy, I don't know what is.

7. A Taurus woman is stubborn.

This character trait is a strong one, and while it may seem slightly negative, it can actually be a good thing. Taurus is stubborn because she is passionate about everything she feels and believes in life. Most Taurus women know and recognize they are stubborn though, and can own up to it. So feel free to point it out to her. She might be able to shed light on why she's feeling that way or let go a little.

A Taurus is a lover, not a fighter, so she wants to let things go and get back to harmony as soon as possible. It is just difficult for her sometimes. But understand she won't ignore a situation. She will remain stubborn about an issue until you have addressed and resolved it together. So the avoidance technique will only make things worse, and she will explode.

In case that happens, engage her senses and shower her with affection. She will soon relax and let it go. That's not so hard, right? If you do betray a Taurus' trust or break her heart, then say goodbye. A Taurus woman doesn't break up and make up. If you try, she will laugh in your face. When she is hurt, she is done and you've lost. She will stubbornly not let you back into her life. So if you love her, keep the lines of communication open. She will fight for you, but she will also let you go when she needs to.

8. A Taurus woman is lazy.

Laziness is another "flaw" amongst the Taurus traits. But honestly, who doesn't love to be a little lazy? She will bask in joy while laying in bed on a Sunday morning, and is completely fine ordering pizza and watching movies some nights. While stimulating conversation is great, if you just want to nap or silently read a book while snuggled against each other, she will be totally comfortable with the silence.

While lazy, she is still playful. Make her move, make her laugh and she will shake whatever funk she is in. Motivate her, and she will get competitive. There's nothing she wants more in the world than to gaze into your eyes while you play with her hair and make each other laugh while wrapped in her silky sheets.

Translation: Her heart won't be won by lavish gestures, money or success. If she likes you, she likes you for you and wants you to herself, in all her lazy glory.

9. A Taurus woman values harmony.

A Taurus lover will work hard to make sure you are happy because she wants harmony in all aspects of her life. Any tension will make her feel anxious and sad, so she will work hard to understand what you need from her emotionally. Your problem is her problem. You are a team. She can see all sides to a story, and tries to remain unbiased to solve it. Help her solve it, and be a good teammate. She won't hold a grudge. She wants peace and happiness for all. Happy wife, happy life, right?

10. A Taurus woman loves love, and she will love you.

A Taurus woman may not be the most outgoing or assertive person. She may even be quite shy, which can translate into appearing stuck up, because she tends to look the part of someone who is confident and extroverted. But I promise you she is the farthest thing from that. She needs someone to draw her out of her own head and have fun with her. If you can tame the wild bull, she is yours for life.

What are you waiting for? Doesn't this sound like a dream? Go find your Taurus lady; she'll be at the bar right now wearing a tiara because it's her birthday month.
