Did a Taurus man you like suddenly stop texting?

You’re not alone—this is a very common Taurus behavior, which is why we’re discussing why it happens and what to do about it below.

Here’s what’s going on:

  • The Taurus man has stopped texting you because he’s either: a) busy, b) not sure about you, c) not into you, or d) so into you that it scares him.
  • If you want him to text you, play it cool! Give him space, then text him something friendly and not emotionally demanding.
  • Be honest and get to the point quickly—that’s how he prefers to communicate.

Not sure you can get the Taurus man’s attention back?

You MUST prove your value, which takes a deeper understanding of the Taurus male psyche as Anna Kovach reveals in her best-selling guide Taurus Man Secrets.

Taurus Man Texting Style

A Taurus man’s texting style is a bit odd.

He might text you day and night for days in a row, and then stop responding.

He’s not the biggest fan of texting, much preferring to leave most interactions for face-to-face conversations.

When he does text you, it’s usually for a practical reason.

He’ll text you to ask a personal question (to learn more about you), or to see if you got home okay.

When Taurus men flirt through texting, their messages are sweet and consistent—expect “Good morning, beautiful” texts every morning (Taurus males love routines).

A man of few words, his texts are short, so don’t be offended.

If you’re texting a Taurus man, just be sure not to drag out the conversation—keep it short and sweet the way he likes it!

Why Taurus Man Stopped Texting You

If your Taurus guy stopped texting you, you should first think about what the reason might be before you make any hasty decisions.

Here are the most common reasons Taurus men suddenly stop texting.

1. He’s busy

Sometimes the simplest answer is the correct one.

If life gets busy, a Taurus man is going to prioritize what’s going on IRL.

Not his phone.

So as difficult as it may be to believe it, consider that he doesn’t mean anything by not getting back to you.

If you wait a few days, he may find a moment to text you.

If not, you can move on down the list of reasons below…

2. He’s on the fence about you

Possibly, your Taurus man is just not sure how he feels about you yet.

He’s into you, kind of…he thinks.

But not enough to really invest his energy into it.

So he hangs back. He replies if and when he feels like it.

He’s not saying no, but he’s not saying yes yet, either.

Chances are, he’s not obsessing about it, but he does think about you when he’s sitting on the couch alone, wondering if he should text you.

3. He’s assessing your relationship potential

If this is the reason the Taurus man has stopped texting you, then he does like you.

But are you relationship material?

This especially happens if you go to bed with a Taurus guy early.

After the night of passion wears off, he starts thinking about what it all meant.

Was it just a one-night stand?

What do you want from him? Could you be his dream girl?

Taurus men want a serious relationship, and they spend a lot of time assessing a woman to decide whether she’s worth it.

You can tell this is going on when the Taurus man still asks you random questions like you’re being interviewed.

4. He likes you a lot, and that scares him

It sucks, but when a Taurus man likes you a lot, he gets kind of weird about it.

You’d expect him to be all over you, but the opposite is true.

He gets emotionally defensive and backs up to analyze his own emotions.

He’s afraid of letting someone in when it’s not going to work out.

He’s not sure why it wouldn’t work out yet, but he has to consider all the scenarios.

And if he ignores you for a little while and finds that he still can’t stop thinking about you, he’ll know his feelings are true and he’ll have to reach out to you (eventually).

5. He’s playing cat and mouse

This is a typical Taurus male behavior that drives women nuts.

It’s when the Taurus guy basically tries to make you prove how much you like him.

He thinks that by not texting you, he can make you text him first and reveal your actual interest in him.

6. He doesn’t like texting

Since the Taurus male doesn’t love texting all that much, he can lack some basic texting etiquette.

He may not get back to you in a timely fashion.

And he may drop a conversation he got bored of without warning.

He doesn’t see it as a big deal, because it doesn’t hold the same value for him as in-person interactions.

If he still wants to hang out with you, there’s nothing to worry about.

7. You’re texting him too often

Save a little mystery for your Taurus man!

He’s slow-moving and likes to draw out the tension.

If you’re texting around the clock and sending multiple texts in a row, you’re doing too much.

8. He’s not interested in you

Finally, if the Taurus man just doesn’t respond to you no matter what you do, he’s probably not really into you.

As mentioned before, Taurus men text for a purpose.

If the Taurus man isn’t interested in dating you, he’s not going to text you.

He won’t maintain communication to be nice or to try to be friends instead.

He’s the type who figures he has enough friends and he doesn’t need any more.

It can seem harsh, but that’s the way he is.

If you suspect this is the case, it’s easier to win him back if you know his secret fears and desires, which you’ll learn in Taurus Man Secrets.

How to Get a Taurus Man to Text You Back

Take a deep breath and relax

I know.

It’s tempting to let your mind go through every negative scenario while you obsess over what you did wrong.

But you need to maintain a calm composure if you want to re-attract the Taurus man’s attention.

A positive and laidback attitude will get him to want to talk to you again.

However, if you come across like a ball of nerves, it can make you seem a little too uptight for him.

Or you have greater expectations than he can fulfill.

Either way, it’s a lot of pressure on him, and pressure will make a Taurus man “nope” outta there.

Wait a little while before you text again

If you haven’t heard from your Taurus man in a while, it’s best to reciprocate the space he’s giving you.

Don’t ask, “Where’s my ‘good morning’ text?”

You won’t get a response any faster that way.

Again, consider that your Taurus may just be too busy to pay as much attention to you right now.

So you need to be considerate and allow him to come back around when it’s more convenient for him.

And if he’s not initiating texting lately because he’s assessing you, then the last thing you want to do is give the impression that you’re needy or out of control.

Best thing to do is meet him where he’s at and communicate with him on his comfort level…relaxed and unhurried.

Shoot him a friendly text

After you’ve allowed the Taurus man some breathing room, it’s time to reestablish contact.

You don’t want to completely fall off his radar.

So send him a text that’s not too deep, but asks for a response.

More than “Hi.”

Just a simple “Hey, I missed talking to you. How have you been?” works.

Something like this expresses interest so he knows you want to talk to him.

It’s friendly and not overly demanding, and it’s open-ended as to require a response.

All of these factors make the Taurus man feel safe in texting you back—and obligated to do so.

If you can make it more personal, do so.

Something like, “Hey, how did your work presentation go?”

If you know something he’s been stressing about or some important event in his life, it gives you an easy way to message him and show that you care.

That will win you extra points by demonstrating sincerity.

Don’t ignore him

If you want a Taurus man to talk to you again, you can’t simply try to turn the tables on him and ignore him.

To him, he has a legitimate reason for not texting you, but he’ll feel that you’re just being petty.

Or that you’re truly not interested.

So he may just move on instead.

If he ends up texting you randomly after a long silence, you don’t have to jump to respond immediately, but you definitely shouldn’t leave him hanging for days.

If that’s not how you were texting him before, he’ll sense you’re playing games and he won’t let you win.

Ask to meet up with him

If you’re just not getting the responses you want, you can skip right to the point and ask the Taurus man to meet up with you.

Here’s why it works:

It’s direct. And Taurus men like straightforward communication.

And as we mentioned before, they prefer face-to-face over texting. So that’s what you’re offering.

It also alleviates the pressure he feels to explain himself for his texting habits.

You’re not judging him or criticizing him for not texting you enough, you’re just asking him a simple question: Does he want to hang out?

You’ll be far more likely to get a reaction, and quickly.

Be honest

If nothing you do seems to get the Taurus man to text you back, you need to level with him.

Don’t send him a text asking, “Can we talk?”

To him, that has “EMOTIONAL COMMITMENT” written all over it.

Instead, try this: “Hey, why haven’t I heard from you lately?”

A Taurus man prefers to be honest and direct, so a direct question like this is easier for him to answer.

And he will be honest with you, even if it’s not what you want to hear.

He figures, you asked!

Which raises a good point: Don’t do this unless you really want the answer!

What If Taurus Man Still Doesn’t Text You?

So you’ve followed the above advice and done everything you can to get the Taurus man to text you.

And he still doesn’t.

In that case, you need to cut your losses.

He’s obviously not an evolved Taurus male, and quite frankly, do you want to date a man who shows he doesn’t consider your feelings?

Ultimately, you can’t force this zodiac sign to talk to you if he doesn’t want to.

No guilt trips or threats in the world will change that.

He’s way too stubborn.

A Taurus may be slow to respond and sometimes forget, but the good kind of Taurus man—the responsible, mature kind—will give you the respect of a reply eventually.

However, if you feel like you just messed up and want to try again with him, we highly recommend you get the pro’s guide Taurus Man Secrets for some help.

Good luck, and remember: 

A Taurus man wants a woman who values herself—so always show this through all of your communications!

Taurus Men FAQ

What do you do when a Taurus man stops communicating?

First, you let him have some space.

If he’s stopped communicating because he’s angry or upset, you need to give him time and space to feel his feelings privately and regain his emotional stability.

After that, you can reach out with a friendly and caring text, email or phone call.

If that doesn’t work, let him know how you feel.

Honesty is the best policy with a Taurus and is the only thing that can move him to sympathize with you.

How often should I text a Taurus man?

Don’t text a Taurus man all throughout the day.

Keep texts consistent—like if you always text him before bed, keep doing that.

Just don’t overwhelm him with message after message.

Text him when you have something to say to him, whether it’s asking him to hang out or letting him know you miss him.

And when in doubt, text him less.

How do you know if a Taurus man is tired of you?

Here are the key signs:

  • He’s touchy and irritable with you
  • He doesn’t initiate contact anymore, at all, ever
  • If you’re sexually intimate, he stops showing interest in that department
  • He gets harder and harder to reach as he’s blocking you out of his world

Will a Taurus cut you off?

Yes, a Taurus will absolutely cut you off.

If a Taurus has run out of patience with you, you will not hear from them again.

It will be as if you simply don’t exist to the Taurus.

Even if you run into them out and about, if they must acknowledge you, they’ll treat you coldly to make a point.

They want you to know that they don’t want anything to do with you anymore.

Taurus man acts interested, then disappears

This could be a ploy to get you to show interest in him.

The Taurus man is not going to waste his valuable time chasing a woman who doesn’t want him as much, if not more, than he wants her.

He’s waiting for you to reach out to him (maybe a few times!).

If not, it’s likely that he’s decided, for his own reasons, that he’s not ready to pursue you after all.

Maybe he figures you’re not a good match, or now is not the right time.

If so, it’s difficult to convince him otherwise.

How to make a Taurus man regret ignoring you

The best way is to live it up without him.

Show off your achievements, successes and bangin’ body on social media for him to see.

The key is to appeal to his senses and his desire for an ambitious woman more than ever, without appearing to need him.

Will a Taurus man come back after ghosting?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

It depends on why he ghosted you.

If he ghosted you early on in dating and you barely got to know each other, it’s unlikely he’ll come back.

However, he may resurface again months down the road—only to ghost you again.

But if he ghosted you because he got scared of his feelings for you, he’ll almost definitely be back.
