Will a Taurus Man Regret Breaking Up With You?
Ultimately, yes, a Taurus man may regret breaking up with you.
But that’s not often the case.
For the most part, Taurus men take a long time to come to the decision to end a relationship.
All during that time, they’re quietly judging the everyday stuff, noting the fights you have, how they feel about you and every little interaction.
By the time he breaks up, the Taurus man has built up a good amount of “evidence” that he should leave you.
Which, to him, can’t be argued with.
However, Taurus guys are also creatures of comfort and habit, so it’s not unusual for them to miss their exes.
That is, their exes that they had a strong bond with and still care about.
However, the Taurean is not likely to act on any impulses to get you back without you doing some initiating first.
Let’s talk about that next.

How to Make a Taurus Man Regret Losing You
To make your Taurus ex sorry he lost you, the best approach is a soft, gentle one.
Beware doing anything too rash, like jumping into another relationship.
That might make the Taurus feel pangs of regret for a moment. But then he’ll feel glad that you’ve closed the book. And he won’t look back.
You should also steer away from guilt trips and payback.
They don’t work at all on this sign and will only serve to make him feel like he made the right decision.
So without further ado, here’s the right way to make a Taurus man regret losing you.
1. Take a break
Are you still talking on the phone, messaging your Taurus man and trying to get his attention?
Right after the breakup, you need to take a step back.
Stop contacting him for a little while. At least a couple of weeks, if not a little more.
Probably, the Taurus man will need space, too.
But the point of taking your own space from him is to respect his wishes and show him that you’re taking the breakup seriously.
It’s what he wanted—and if he gets a little bummed out that you’re not around, good.
You don’t have to go so far as to ignore him if he starts reaching out.
But do make yourself less available to him as you’re now getting your life back, too.
2. Work on yourself
Taurus is an earth sign, and all Taurus people are very rooted in the material world.
Things that the Taurus man can see with his own eyes—tangible results—have a big influence on him.
So if you work on yourself and show those tangible results, he’ll have to take note.
If you had wanted to get more fit and toned, take advantage of your free time and sign up for that spin class.
Have career ambitions, or maybe thinking about going back to school?
Now is the time to pursue your goals like never before.
A Taurus man wants to be with someone who looks ahead, not back.
A woman who will take action to better her life (and by extension, the lives of the Taurus man and their future children, should they have any).
And in any case, seeing you take care of yourself amps up your value in the Taurus man’s eyes.
And it’s a type of value that you control, not the Taurus man—which will drive him crazy.
3. Put your post-breakup life on display
Now that you’re kicking butt and getting things done, you need to broadcast all your hard work and successes.
Social media is your best friend here.
Post any pictures of you taking charge and doing your thing.
Remember, action is more meaningful than words to the Taurus man. So seeing you in action will make him think.
However, words aren’t nothing to a Taurus. Especially when he hears stuff about how great you’re doing from other people you know.
So don’t mope—tell people you and the Taurus man know in common how you’re on a roll (without bragging, of course!) and let word get back to your Taurus ex.
4. Be his friend
After you’ve given each other space, work on being your Taurus ex’s friend.
Although if he’s open to that, he still may not be very good at reaching out to you to maintain the friendship. So it may be up to you to start building that bridge.
However, once you do, the Taurus will take it from there and grow more comfortable with a new kind of closeness with you.
Continue to be there and support your Taurus man as a friend would. Put your energy into making him feel good with you and sharing hobbies together.
This way, you can not only build new good memories for him, but also remind him of the old ones that he cherishes.
It can really make a Taurus man think.
Just be sure to keep the lines of friendship intact and not cross over into any intimate territory―too fast and you risk losing the Taurus for good.

5. Look amazing
This is a tip that seems cliche, but it works.
Particularly with the super sensory Taurus man.
Even if he thinks he doesn’t want to be with you anymore, his attraction doesn’t just go away.
If you want to really hit the nail on the head, pay attention to the details beyond basic good grooming.
Like making sure your nails look clean and nice. And washing your hair with a deliciously scented conditioner that leaves your strands looking shiny and silky.
In person, a Taurus man will pick up on these sensory details and instinctively appreciate them.
Taurus men love all kinds of looks, but they really like the girl-next-door/nature girl look.
One where you can look cute and pretty without being siren-y or overdone in the makeup department.
A natural but well-maintained look is best!
6. Play up what he loved about you on social media
Whatever it was that your Taurus ex admired about you, put it on full display.
Tauruses are notoriously possessive and will continue to keep tabs on an ex. Which includes on social media.
Maybe you had initially bonded over being animal lovers with a soft spot for rescues.
Consider volunteering some of your time at a shelter, then posting about it.
Did he love your cooking?
Snap pictures of some stellar culinary creations and make him wish he were there.
Maybe he had a weakness for you in sundresses.
Well, go ahead and post some pictures of you in a few new ones, plus his favorite from your closet.
Just be cool about it—don’t overdo it, and don’t write anything when you post that makes it obvious you’re hoping he’ll see.
Make it about you and your life.
7. Don’t argue
A Taurus man needs peace in his life.
His ruling planet, Venus, likes beauty, harmony and romance.
Arguments and confrontations don’t fit in here at all.
If you had a lot of fights in your past relationship, it may be more challenging to convince your Taurus man to regret the breakup.
But you may be able to overpower those memories by making sure you set a new course for how you relate to each other.
That is, by keeping the peace—and making the Taurus feel good, relaxed and comfortable around you.
And following the rest of the tips on this list!
8. Don’t add pressure
With a Taurus man, it’s better to leave the subject of your relationship alone.
He has to make that move himself, and it will probably take him what feels like forever.
If you make any moves or bring up being in a relationship again, he could panic and feel like you’re forcing things.
It has to happen naturally for him.
So no matter how well you think things are going, try to resist talking about emotional baggage from your past relationship or giving it another go.
It’s best to let the Taurus control these subjects and approach them when he’s ready to.
If you play your cards right, you’ll get the Taurus man wondering why he ever gave you up and then asking you to patch things up.
Other Taurus Man Questions
Will a Taurus man come back after no contact?
Short answer, yes.
A no-contact period is not going to deter him if he wants you.
You can even put the no-contact label on what you’re doing when you take that initial break from your Taurus man directly after the breakup.
But not talking for a while is not the problem.
Trying to force talking when the Taurus man doesn’t want to, however, will be a problem.

How do you get a Taurus man to fall back in love with you?
Remind him why he fell for you to begin with.
Just like we suggested in tip #6, you want to play up those qualities you know your Taurus went gaga for.
Only, don’t just do it on social media.
Do it in person, when a Taurus man can see, smell, hear and touch you.
Play to his senses.
Other than this, you really want to make sure that he doesn’t have a reason not to trust you. As we explain in How to Make a Taurus Man Fall in Love With You, this should be your priority.
At the same time, don’t be clingy or needy—be independent and the Taurus man will feel safe letting you back in.
How does Taurus apologize?
The real question is, will a Taurus man apologize at all?
He may not say the actual words, but when he feels guilty, he’ll show you how sorry he is.
He’ll “apologize” by being extra nice to you and getting you an apology gift.
Or, he’ll say that you were both wrong and try to let bygones be bygones.
He may ignore it entirely and pretend nothing ever happened.
By some miracle, you may get a full apology if you call him out when he knows he did something to get him in hot water.
But those straight-up “I’m sorry” words can be a once-in-a-relationship event, so relish them.
How do you know when a Taurus man misses you?
You know when a Taurus man misses you when he’s never too far away.
Somehow he’s still popping up on your radar, whether on social media or running into him out and about.
He’ll text you to check up on you.
He’ll also be keeping an eye on you from afar, from checking your socials to keeping tabs through your friends.

How to emotionally connect with a Taurus man
The trick is to help the Taurus man get comfortable first.
You can make him physically comfortable with cozy, intimate surroundings and soft pillows to snuggle up against.
But you should also work toward setting the right tone for him to be able to open up. You know, eventually.
Interestingly, you should start by taking the emphasis off of emotional sharing.
At least verbally.
Instead, start building the connection through the way you touch him, through cuddling and making every moment you share together blissful.
Get the details in How to Emotionally Connect With a Taurus Man.
Will a Taurus man get over his ex?
If the Taurus man decides to break off the relationship himself, he may be able to forget about his ex immediately and move on.
It depends on whether he still has lingering feelings and why he broke up with her.
When a woman breaks up with him, a Taurus man is much more likely to stay obsessed with her.
He won’t be able to just wipe the slate clean.
If he still cares for her, he’ll be thinking about his ex long after the breakup, and maybe even after his next breakup with the next person he dates.
If you don’t want your Taurus ex to get over you, we suggest deep-diving into the Taurus male’s psyche so you really understand what’s going on in the background.
