In the world of astrology, being a Scorpio is kind of like being the cool -- but not necessarily popular -- girl in high school.
You're not a follower; you forge your own path. You do things your way without giving the haters a second glance. You're not everyone's cup of tea, but those who love you love you deeply.
While some may call you "intense" or "difficult," those not intimidated by you find you to be the most passionate, loyal and real lover and friend.
Personally, I don't believe that every element of an astrological sign applies to every person born into it. I'm a late-blooming Scorpio myself; it wasn't until my career and dating life started taking shape that I began to see some of these traits emerge.
But Scorpio is one of the strongest signs, and I do believe that aspects of it come out in all of us eventually.
So, Scorpio ladies, let's gather 'round and take a moment to recognize why once he's had a taste of us, no man will ever be able to forget us.
Dating her is a wild, wild ride
Dating a Scorpio means you'll have some of the best days of your life... and some of the worst.
But those highs -- those epic, mind-blowing highs -- keep you coming back for more, even if she is straight up terrifying when you f*ck with her or catch her in the wrong mood.
Scorpios are complex by nature, and they don't take their relationships lightly. They'll show you a kind of love deeper than anything you ever thought existed IRL, and once that hits you, you'll never be fully content settling for basic love again.
She'll get to know you better than you ever knew yourself
Scorpios are intuitive and have a way of reading people, which can be annoying as hell, until you realize just how useful it is to have someone so inside your head that her ability to guide you in the right direction is nearly fool-proof.
Chances are, by the second or third time you hear yourself yelling, "Don't tell me how I feel!" you'll realize hey-- wait a second -- that is how I feel. Huh.
She's so good at controlling you, she'll have you doing what she wants and thinking it was your idea. But the bright side is, she won't use her powers for evil. She has your best interests in mind.
She tells it how it is and doesn't sweat the bullsh*t
That passive-aggressive "I'm fine" girls are known for dropping when they're actually not fine at all? Scorpios don't bother with that. They're always direct, and they're not afraid to speak their minds, even at times they probably shouldn't.
Scorpios see things as black or white, never grey. Either you love her, or you don't. You're worth keeping around, or you're not. This can feel way harsh, but at least you know she'll never waste your time or harp on petty drama. Posers and game-players need not apply.
She's a boss in the office... and in the bedroom
In work and in love, when a Scorpio woman sets her eye on a goal, she gets sh*t done.
She's wired to be the one who takes initiative, and she won't wait for anyone else to make decisions for her. She's self-motivated, driven and never shy about getting what she wants, whether it's a job promotion or the hottest guy in the bar.
A Scorpio doesn't expect anything to be handed to her, either. She's down to work for it. In fact, she prefers it that way. Don't let her intimidate you; let her inspire you.
And when it comes to getting down, she's just as comfortable taking the lead. Scorpios are famous for their skills in the sheets, and even the most reserved ones will surprise you behind closed doors.
She's stubborn as hell, but she's fiercely loyal
Oh, you thought you were going to win an argument with your Scorpio girlfriend? Lolz.
She might rip you a new one over your (clearly wrong) opinion on which season of "Friends" was the best or tear you apart for the type of pizza you just ordered, but the moment anyone else messes with you, she will be the first one to come to your defense.
She might be a pain in the ass, but she has your back no matter what. And with her on your side, you really can't lose.
She'll make you work for it, but she's worth it
Lots of Scorpios come with a hard shell to crack; they don't let love in easily. But if you can deal with an eye roll instead of a flirty giggle when you approach her with your best line, not getting a text back after the first date because she "didn't have time for that" or having your initial attempts at romance met with snarky comments, you may one day find all of that effort was the best effort you ever spent.
Once you've earned a Scorpio's love, and, even better, her trust, she'll respect you, motivate you and excite you to new levels. She'll take you on the adventure of your life, all the while pushing you to be the best version of yourself. And what more could you really ask for from a relationship?
