Taurus people are deeply romantic and very loyal. They value the harmony a happy home life creates. They will go to extremes to keep their mate happy, which, when it comes to love, is no sacrifice to the sensuous Bull. The Taurus need for the good life is equaled by their need to share that life with someone special.

Sexually, Taurus is straightforward and down-to-earth. A no-nonsense approach is favored and too much verbalizing or complex fantasizing is not a Taurus trait.

Music or other forms of sensual, non-verbal expression will strike a chord in the Taurus nature. Very faithful to friends and family, Taurus prefer long-lasting relationships and seek to build strong alliances, although they can be misled by their sensual natures, especially when young.

Taurus Woman

Taurus Man

Sweet and kind, the Taurus man is the ultimate nice guy of the zodiac. The Taurus man is often slow to anger and quick to forgiveness. He is definitely the type to hold open doors on a date. Taurus men can be stubborn when it comes to certain things that are important to him, which can lead to arguments, though these characteristics show up far less often than the traits that lend themselves to Taurus' gentler side.
