Test #1: Taurus Man Acts Interested, Then Stops
This Taurus man test has frustrated countless women.
It’s when a Taurus man has made every indication that he’s into you, paying you tons of attention and flirting up a storm…
Only to completely stop chasing you.
Feel crazy for thinking he liked you?
Well, here’s the kicker: he still does!
Even though he’s suddenly acting like he doesn’t notice your existence, what he’s actually doing is playing the wait and watch game.
You see, he really wants you to want him, but he’s not not sure how much you do.
How better to find out than to back away and see what you do?
What should you do?
If you had a few wonderful dates or some heavy flirting at work and now the Taurus is MIA, don’t lose hope.
Consider that he’s waiting for you to reach out to him.
A Taurus man will keep pulling back until you give him a real indication that you want him.
And not just one casual text asking where he’s gone, but pretending you don’t really care.
He’ll wait until you allow him to see your true feelings about him.
Tell him outright that you like him and you want to see him, and try to get a face-to-face meet-up with him (Tauruses connect better in person).
You may feel like you’re going over the top declaring your interest in him, but this is really what he wants, so he doesn’t risk you playing with his emotions.
Test #2: He Lets You Talk
On dates, is your Taurus guy quiet for long stretches of time while you talk?
Rest assured, he’s soaking it all in.
As a passive feminine sign, Taurus men are receptive. They don’t act, but rather react to you.
This is one of the Taurus man’s greatest strengths because while he’s listening, he’s learning a whole lot.
He’s logging it all away—how much you have in common, what you want to get our of dating him, if your future goals align.
What should you do?
Just be yourself.
You never want to change your answers to please the Taurus.
And don’t worry if you don’t have everything in common—someone who is different from him can be exciting.
In any case, lying will certainly get you shown the door.
Want to really impress him? Make sure to ask him questions about himself as well.
This can have the dual effect of showing your genuine interest while also demonstrating that you’re not self-absorbed.
Don’t expect him to divulge his deepest, darkest secrets to you, but it’s definitely the thought that counts.
Test #3: He Ignores Your Texts
Say you’re texting your Taurus guy, and suddenly you don’t hear back from him.
Maybe you had a great texting match going, and now you’re wondering why he let the conversation drop.
Sometimes, Taurus men just get caught up in other things.
But if you’re pretty sure it’s more than that, he’s hesitating for a reason.
When a Taurus man hesitates, there’s a strong possibility he’s deciding how he feels about you.
Taurus is perfectly happy keeping you on hook, line and sinker until he knows.
Sometimes, you won’t hear back from him for a while if you did or said something that made him uncomfortable.
Either way, his reaction will be to step back for a while and let it all marinate.
What should you do?
If he’s not responding to you, you kind of have no other option than to wait for a bit.
The reason being, if you throw a ton of questions his way, he could feel overwhelmed.
Sit tight, because it could be a few weeks until he’s ready to resurface.
However, if his silence continues for what seems like an abnormal amount of time, it’s important to address whatever is going on.
The Taurus man is uncomfortable bringing something up, but he’s still known for his honesty and point-blank way of putting things.
He’ll let you know what’s up if you really want to know.
Plus, asking him shows that you care enough to work on things, which is a big sign to the Taurus man that you’re mature enough for the relationship he’s seeking.
Test #4: He Gets Weird About Other Guys
Does your Taurus man ask intimate questions about your male friends?
Does he want to know where you’ve been and who you were hanging out with?
Sooner or later, you’ll see the Taurus man’s jealousy monster rear its head.
Just try mentioning another man flirting with you, and watch the Taurus man’s nostrils flare.
Sometimes a Taurus man gets so jealous and suspicious that he goes the other way and tells you you should just date someone else instead.
It can be shocking, confusing and hurtful.
But ultimately, the Taurus man is protecting himself. And he’s really bad at controlling his emotions once they get loose.
What should you do?
He wants you to reassure him of your faithfulness to him.
As annoying as it can be, when he asks if there were any other guys in the group you were hanging with earlier, just tell him.
Let the test run its course, and when trust is gained you won’t hear these questions so much anymore.
And if a Taurus man ever says you should go on some dates with another guy he thinks you’re attracted to, don’t.
If a Taurus guy sees you acting on this, he’ll write you off.
It’s all the proof he needs to move on.
If you want to save yourself some trouble, don’t ever try to make a Taurus man jealous just to see where his heart lies, and avoid talking about other men around him.
Make it clear that you’re a one-man woman and your Bull is the one for you.
Test #5: He’s Not Asking for Another Date
Are you wondering what on earth is taking the Taurus man so long to ask for another date?
Taurus men are extremely cautious, and their passive natures can bring things to a grinding halt over and over again.
At least, that’s how it feels to you.
For a Taurus man, there’s no reason to rush.
Moving slowly gives him a chance to see you in a variety of lights and situations.
How do you conduct yourself? Are you classy and polite?
Will you be overly demanding of his time and attention?
Maybe you jumped into bed too soon, and he’s trying to separate lust from emotion.
No matter what, he’s always analyzing how smart it is to get involved emotionally and romantically.
What should you do?
Be patient and let the Taurus man do what he needs to do.
Give him space when he’s showing you that he needs space.
Make it clear that you’re there for him and that you want to be together…but that you’re not going to force it.
When he sees that there’s no danger and he’s ready, he’ll make the next move.

Test #6: He Cancels Plans
A Taurus man won’t bail on your plans just to test you.
He’ll have a legitimate reason or emergency.
Regardless, he’ll use this moment as an opportunity to gauge your reactions.
There are times when he’ll cancel plans when he feels it’s the only way to slow things down.
This is not an attempt to break things off with you—he’ll be happy to reassure you that he does want to see you another time.
Tauruses don’t make empty promises, so you can believe him on that.
What should you do?
If you want to pass this Taurus man test, let the Taurus man know that you understand and wait for him to make plans with you again.
Meanwhile, pay attention to your own life.
Keep conquering your goals and posting selfies to show off your achievements.
Being flexible and laid-back lets the Taurus man know that you’re not too needy.
And letting him see all the reasons you’re a catch while he secretly scrolls your social media will motivate him to plan another date with you.
Test #7: He Tests Your Honesty
Not only does a Taurus man expect you to tell him the truth, but he’ll also make sure you do.
This Taurus man test can be hard to see coming, because he’s purposely trying to catch you off guard.
Maybe while he was gathering dirt on you, he uncovered something big from your past that you haven’t shared with him.
He’ll ask you about it super casually to see what you say.
What should you do?
If you try to hide it from him or lie, he’ll get even more suspicious.
And a Taurus man who doesn’t trust you will never let you in.
So be totally honest, even if you think it will damage your image in his eyes.
Tauruses are way more forgiving than you might think, and in any case they’re practical people.
They know everyone makes mistakes, but one thing they can’t tolerate is someone who lies to their faces.
Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable with your Taurus man, and he’ll be more willing to open his heart to you.
Test #8: He Won’t Commit
Relationship limbo with a Taurus man is torture.
If you find that no matter what you do, you can’t get the Taurus man to commit, it could be that he’s testing your loyalty.
Is your heart really free for the Taurus man to conquer, or are you still stuck on an ex?
Maybe you’ve been holding back, not letting him in?
Sometimes women do this in response to the Taurus man’s hot-and-cold dance.
But unfortunately, it just has the effect of making the Taurus man back away.
What should you do?
Whatever the case may be, Taurus needs to know: Are you going to prove your devotion to him?
Remember, he prefers to react.
So if you’re not sure what’s going on, be upfront and talk to him.
Tell him your feelings for him and let him know what you want to happen.
Put things to him in a non-confrontational way and don’t pressure him, and you’ll get your message across.
It will show the Taurus you’re serious and also put him in a position where it’s his turn to reciprocate.
