What to do when a Taurus man ignores you
Step 1: Don’t go into reactionary mode
Here’s the hardest part.
Resist all temptation to do two things: trying to get even with him and texting him around the clock.
If you ignore him back to hurt him, he’ll know what you’re doing and double down on freezing you out.
In this situation, you could lose him fast.
But when you do the opposite—that is, smother him with attention and worried phone calls—he thinks you’re too needy and pulls even further away.
Which is exactly the opposite of what you want him to do.
Step 2: Hold off on contacting him temporarily
First and foremost, try to give the Taurus man some space.
In many, if not most cases where he distances himself from you, it’s basically what he’s asking you for without using words.
Often, he needs some time to process his feelings and think.
And he can’t do that if he’s constantly fielding “Where are you?” questions from you.
Even if he’s ignoring you as a little test of your interest in him, you’ll want to play it cool.
Give it a few days before you reach out again to show that, hey, you’re busy too.
Step 3: Don’t try to confront him
Just about the worst thing you could do with a Taurus is get confrontational when they frustrate you.
Is it can incredibly discouraging to deal with an absent Taurus? Absolutely. Especially when he’s been so romantic and sweet up until now.
But realistically, all that’s going to happen is he’ll feel attacked.
His defenses will go up and he’ll stand his ground.
So what do you want to do instead? Onto the next step…
Step 4: Be understanding
Use sweetness to entice him.
As Anna Kovach explains in Taurus Man Secrets, making a Taurus man feel understood and accepted is key to getting him to do what you want him to do.
In this case, to stop ignoring you.
Showing genuine concern for him with a text (after you’ve given him space) or a phone call will help him let his guard back down.
If you get a short response with an unsatisfying explanation for him being MIA, stay calm.
You might want to reply to him that you’re there when he wants to talk and that you support him.
It’s a slow process with a Taurus man—keep that in mind.
And if he’s upset with you, you can probably expect to be ignored a little longer than average.
Step 5: Tell him honestly how you feel
When you’re having back-and-forth exchanges again, you may notice that the Taurus man isn’t talking about what happened at all.
That’s just how he is. He’s not the most verbal kind of man.
But that doesn’t at all mean he wouldn’t like to listen to your side of things.
As long as you talk to him respectfully and come from a place of heartfelt caring, you can share your feelings with him and he’ll listen with an open heart.
What if he’s ignoring you to see if you’re really into him? Be straightforward with him in this case, too.
That is, don’t try to act like you’re not that interested, because that will just prove to him that he shouldn’t waste his time.
Honesty is the best policy with a Taurus man, always.
Step 6: Respect his needs
Unless he’s accidentally ignoring you because he’s got a long going on right now, the Taurus man has legitimate reasons for not contacting you.
You may not understand them, but they’re real and important to him.
So you must treat them as such.
If he tells you he needs space right now, don’t argue with his decision. Even if it hurts you to hear it.
The only way to get a Taurus man to stop ignoring you—and stay in your life—is to allow him to be the leader.
Give him credit that he knows what he needs.
If he voices concern, for example because he got jealous when you were a little flirtatious online with another guy, your Taurus man needs to know that he can rely on you.
Whatever he determines is the best path forward, give it a chance and let him know that you’re willing to follow his lead.
