You know how you feel, but how does a Taurus man feel after a break up?
In a nutshell, here’s how things have been with him post-breakup:
- He’s been consumed with thoughts about what he’s lost
- He’s been trying to mask his pain with pursuits like exercise and Tinder
- He’s thought about trying to get you back
You know it’s likely been hard for your Taurus ex to move on. Isn’t that the key to fix things?
Well…not quite. A Taurus man’s trust is hard to regain. It’s important to know what’s going on on a deep psychological level to make sure the rekindled relationship lasts.
This is exactly what Relationship Astrologer Anna Kovach teaches in Taurus Man Secrets.

Inside the Taurus Man’s World
Breakups are hard—this is something we all know from experience. For Taurus men, breakups are a time for self-reflection.
Often, they’ll replay scenes from the relationship going pretty far back. All the little details of what they did wrong (or potentially did wrong) come back to haunt them.
If the relationship was serious, he probably saw its potential to last a lifetime. Most Taurus men are the types who want to settle down with that one special person, often while they’re fairly young. And they don’t waste their time on any endeavor that they feel won’t return what they put in.
So you can imagine how hard it is for a Taurus guy to accept the failure of the relationship. But generally, this is only when they feel that they’ve made a serious investment.
When a less serious relationship ends, a Taurus man feels differently. He hasn’t sunk his emotions and energy into it, so it’s easy to walk away.

How Does a Taurus Man Feel After a Break Up?
Here’s the scoop on your Taurus ex.
For the committed Taurus man, the end of your relationship is a huge loss. He’s going to be sad, of course, but being a possessive, jealous type, a typical reaction for him is anger. This is especially true if you’re the one who left the Taurus.
When they find the person they want to be with, Taurus guys tend to plan on a future with that person in it. When that dream suddenly crumbles, it’s like they’ve lost everything—you, their time, their energy and the future they were committed to.
Losing a romantic partner is a struggle because he’s losing something of great value to him. He’ll feel wounded and angry that he’s lost everything he’s invested in.
He may also feel confused if he can’t rationalize exactly why it is that the breakup happened. There’s got to be a tangible reason in the Taurus’s mind, and if he doesn’t understand it, he’s going to have an even harder time getting over it.
Underneath everything, he feels like his stability has just gone out the window. Usually stable, an emotionally turbulent Taurus man is going to react, often in one of a handful of ways.
Take a look at Taurus Man Secrets for an in-depth understanding of your Taurus man.
How Taurus Men Cope
Diving Into His Workout Routine
As one of the most physical signs of the zodiac, Taurus likes to work through his feelings in the gym, running on the trail, climbing or doing taekwondo.
Whatever his outlet of choice is, it’s likely that he’s going to be doing a lot more of it in your absence. Exercise is one of the best ways for a Taurus man to release his pain and anger. It’s good for his body and soul.
Keeping Tabs on You
If he’s still pining for you, considering his possessive personality, he’s going to want to know who you’re hanging out with now. Facebook is an easy way for him to check up on you and scroll through the new pictures you’ve posted.
He’s definitely not like the Aries man who leaves the past in the past and moves on quickly. When the Taurus’s emotions are involved, letting go is a slow process.
Trying to Get You Back
If you’ve broken it off with your Taurus man, it’s going to take some time for him to absorb the breakup and feel his emotions. When he’s finished with his anger and he’s assessed the relationship, he might make an attempt to patch things up. He doesn’t want to find someone else—he wants you.
If he goes this route, he’ll reach out directly and call you, or text you wanting to know if you can meet up to talk. He may be persistent for a while, though he won’t be forever. A Taurus man knows when he’s wasting his energy and should cut his losses.
Trying to Play the Field
Ego. It’s a big reason why a Taurus man would try to get with other women on a superficial basis after the breakup.
His has been hurt, and his secret sensitivity has come to the surface. He can’t stand feeling less than, so one way that he might try to get his mojo back is through Tinder.
But usually, this is a phase that doesn’t last. I’ve heard hurt Taurus men in the past recite monologues about never wanting a serious relationship again, only to go full-on monogamous with someone they fall for soon after.
Just in case you’re reading this because you’re wondering how this new Taurus guy you’re seeing feels about his ex, be careful that you’re not a rebound if you’re looking for something real.
There’s a lot to cover on this topic if you’re trying to figure out how to keep your Taurus man. That’s where the full guide to the Taurus man’s heart, mind and soul comes in: Taurus Man Secrets.
