How to Emotionally Connect With a Taurus Man
Taurus men don’t love opening themselves up to others.
Even to those they care about quite deeply.
Vulnerability makes them nervous, so you’ll probably be waiting longer than you’re used to.
And yet, when a Taurus man decides he trusts you enough, the emotional bond you’ll share will be near unbreakable.
Taurus men are loyal like you wouldn’t believe.
Here’s what a Taurus guy needs from you to get there.

1. Make him comfortable
The first thing you want to do if you’re trying to have an emotional bonding session is to make the Taurus man comfortable.
That is, pick a slow-paced evening where it’s just the two of you, some good wine and good dinner.
Set your sofa up with big, soft pillows and dim the lights a bit.
Maybe throw some essential oils in a diffuser to make the room more calm and relaxed.
Tauruses are very susceptible to their physical surroundings and their senses, so use that knowledge to set the tone.
2. Touch him
Tauruses aren’t big on words.
Instead, they rely on touch to both express their feelings and to receive affection from you.
What this means for you is that you should touch him in sweet, romantic ways.
Stroke his palm and fingers with your fingertips while you watch TV.
Give him a neck rub. Taurus rules the neck and throat, so this is a great place to relieve tension for him and show that you care about him.
Touch his cheek and smile just because.
It’s little things like these that melt a Taurus man’s heart.
3. Take the emphasis off talking about emotions
Since Tauruses aren’t in their comfort zone expressing their emotions, you’ll need to take a softer approach.
Try to keep conversations about feelings on the lighter side.
At least before he’s ready to launch into that side of things.
Rather than trying to force an open exchange of emotions, focus on how you treat each other.
Pay attention to the Taurus man’s actions—the way he holds you and gazes into your eyes.
Reciprocate these actions and let the feelings between you build, without words getting in the way.
4. Connect with him in person
A Taurus man is a creature of simple habits.
He works and then he unwinds, he eats when he’s hungry and he sleeps when he’s tired.
He focuses on what’s in front of him and takes care of immediate needs.
So it’s much easier for him to feel connected to you in person, when he can be affectionate and give you his undivided attention.
Although thoughtful texts to let him know you’re thinking of him are appreciated, the real magic happens when you’re together.
5. Tell him how you feel
A Taurus would rather know where you stand first before opening up emotionally.
And he will need a lot of reassurance before he gets there.
Remember, he’s not great with vulnerability.
Open the door by being upfront about your feelings.
It can be as simple as letting him know how much you enjoy spending time with him.
Sometimes all a Taurus wants to do is cuddle you.
It’s the physical closeness that he craves.
Getting to lie there with you, holding you in his arms and smelling your hair is heavenly for him.
So get under a cozy blanket and relax with each other.
You don’t need to say much. Just soak up the snuggling bliss.
7. Steer clear of prying
You may think you’re asking a simple question.
But asking a Taurus man directly to tell you how he feels is a bit of a threat to him.
He’ll put his defenses up and shy away from you.
If this happens to you, Anna Kovach can tell you what to do in Taurus Man Secrets.
Instead, you’ll want to wait until he’s ready.
You can let him know you’re there for him, then allow him to come to you when he feels the time is right.
8. Keep texts light
Sometimes we feel like it’s easier to talk about feelings over text.
But in this case, a Taurus man will not feel that way.
He needs to be in control of when he shares his emotions, and he especially doesn’t like doing it through text.
He may send you an email once he’s gathered his thoughts, but otherwise he’ll feel cornered and weird.
Keep texts pretty breezy and don’t burden them with emotional talk.
That’s one of the ways to build trust and comfort with a Taurus man, getting you closer to creating that emotional connection.
9. Accept him
For sure, it can be frustrating dealing with a Taurus guy.
He doesn’t like to talk about things when he’s going through a rough time.
You’ll probably get an “I need some time to myself,” and that’s about it.
Even when he has serious feelings for you, he might refuse to acknowledge them to you.
And yet, refusing to accept these things about the Taurus will make him run away from you.
This is another reason why you must be patient with a Taurus.
He’ll only feel close to you if he feels like you’re not pressuring him, judging him or trying to change him.
10. Don’t criticize him
Tauruses are more sensitive than you might think.
If you criticize him, you’ll probably notice by the way he shuts down that a Taurus man takes it pretty personally.
He’ll ignore you and/or put space between you.
If you want to suggest something to him, phrase it in a way that doesn’t tell him he’s wrong.
However, it’s best to keep your suggestions limited, or he’ll start wondering if you’re not happy with him and pull away.
Other Taurus Man Questions
How to communicate with a Taurus man
You may have experienced this by now, but a Taurus is a man of few words.
First rule of how to communicate effectively with a Taurus man is to not assume that just because he isn’t saying something doesn’t mean he isn’t feeling something.
And yet, trying to get it out of him will give you the opposite result that you want.
In-person communication is best for Tauruses. But don’t ambush him—give him an out so he doesn’t need to talk if he’s not into it.
Allow him to be brief. He feels he says all he needs to say in far fewer words than most people.
Another tip is to speak to him in a friendly, non-confrontational way.
Make sure you approach him out of love and peace as this Venus-ruled man needs these things to feel stable and whole.
What is a Taurus man love language?
Physical touch is the Taurus man’s love language.
He feels the most loved when he’s close to you.
Anything like hugging, cuddling and having you stroke his hair shows him how you feel about him.
Likewise, if you’re not too touchy-feely with a Taurus man, he’ll assume things have gone cold between you.
And if he doesn’t love you, he won’t want to share that physical connection as it leads directly to emotions for him.
How do you express your feelings to a Taurus man?
The best way to express your feelings to a Taurean is honestly.
If you hide your feelings, he won’t know they exist.
It’s also good to keep it simple and to the point without making it dramatic.
Trust me, he’ll hang onto every word!
After you express your feelings, it’s good to give the Taurus some space.
If you’ve just revealed your romantic feelings for him, he needs to know that you’ll take it slowly and that you’ll give him room to figure out how he feels.
Often, telling a Taurus man your feelings is a one-way communication, at least in the moment.
He’ll let you know how he feels in return when he’s gotten his thoughts together.
How do you make a Taurus man fall madly in love with you?
No surprises here, give him time!

Show him that you fully support him and that he can trust you completely.
Speak to him in his love language—the language of touch—and give him plenty of hugs, kisses and tender touches.
