Why Does Taurus Man Keep Coming Back?
There are a few different reasons a Taurus man may keep coming back to you, no matter how many times you break up.
It’s not a common trend for Taurus guys, but it does happen.
Usually, it has to do with their emotional attachment to you.
But sometimes it’s a little more complicated than that.
Here are reasons your Taurus ex just can’t stop showing back up in your life.

Reason 1: He sees long-term potential
This is the most favorable reason for a Taurus man to be on and off again with you.
Provided, of course, that you want a relationship with him.
There could be any number of issues that have caused him to leave, whether he broke up with you or you broke up with him.
But the fact is, he just can’t seem to imagine his life without you.
Nobody quite matches up to you, and not for superficial reasons.
When you were together, he saw real potential for being together in the future.
Maybe he even saw you creating a life together with marriage and the whole shebang.
Tauruses don’t take these types of commitments lightly—hence the whole break-up-get-back-together thing going on between you.
What should you do?
If you want him to stay, you’ll need to work out whatever it is that makes you part ways in the first place.
Keep those issues out of your lives for a good, long time to prove to the Taurus man that they’re over and done with.
In the meantime, don’t rush things or try to give him any ultimatums.
The stubborn Bull won’t have any of that.

Reason 2: He’s been hurt
Is your Taurus guy saying that he doesn’t want to let you go, but he’s having a hard time letting himself be with you?
A Taurus man who was cheated on, had his trust betrayed or was hurt in any way will struggle to move past that experience.
Tauruses are not exactly trusting to begin with.
Add onto that a wound so deep it threw him into chaos and you’ve got a recipe for true fear of commitment.
It’s not a great excuse. You’re not the woman who did it to him.
And your Taurus man knows this rationally.
Nevertheless, you’re not going to be able to do much about it unless he really wants to work on it.
What should you do?
Be calm and patient with him, and—obviously—give him no reason not to trust you by being loyal and never flirting with other men.
A nurturing woman is what he ultimately wants. Consistency is key here.
If all else fails, the best thing you can do is be clear and honest about how you feel and what you’re (not) willing to tolerate.
Tread lightly, though, because making demands without showing a Taurus man that it’s worth it is dangerous territory.
Anna Kovach shares a good formula for making a Taurus man want to stick by you for good in Taurus Man Secrets.
But if he continues to disappear, it might be time to cut your losses.
Reason 3: He’s using you for comfort
In some cases, Taurus men will keep returning to a woman because it feels good in the moment.
It’s kind of like a hug—warm and fuzzy, but temporary.
Usually this happens when you do emotionally connect with the Taurus man (at least to some extent), but he doesn’t see you as dating material.
He doesn’t do it to torture you. He does this because a) you’re willing, and b) he has no reason not to.
Most of the time, a Taurus would rather be alone if he knows this is not the relationship for him. But he also craves human touch and comfort.
Maybe he’s recently gotten out of a long-term relationship and he’s not looking for another one.
But he figures, if you really didn’t want him around, you’d kick him to the curb.
What should you do?
Though Tauruses don’t like ultimatums, you’ll need to put your foot down on this one.
If he can’t be with you, the deal is that things end right then and there. If he had no intention of being your man, you’re not going to do any worse than ending it yourself.
And if, by some chance, he decides to invest more of his energy into giving it a real shot, you’ve gotten what you wanted in the end.
But believe me, you don’t want to be strung along by a Taurus forever.
He’ll never let go—that is, until he meets someone else.
Reason 4: He’s just really physically attracted to you
Sometimes a Taurus man is just a man looking for a good time.
Beautiful women attract him like crazy, but there’s a lot more he needs to date them.
There are those Taurus men (usually those who have been hurt in the past) who claim that they’re never going to get serious again, so they just look for pretty ladies to have fun with.
Other times, a Taurus guy doesn’t start out wanting a purely physical relationship with you.
But if you slept together quickly, he may have gotten lazy quick.
Or, he could even have been put off by how fast you jumped into the sack together—I know, totally unfair since he was an equal party in that decision!
But that’s the mind of a Taurus man.
What should you do?
Your best shot is to try to charm him by showing him a different side of you.
But first, pause your physical relationship. Tell him he can call you if he wants to hang out or go on a date.
Make him laugh, keep yourself busy and let him see the real you shine through.

But if this fails, your only move left is to let him fade out of your life.
Just know that Taurus men are persistent, so you’ll have to be strong enough to say no to him (unless he’s willing to make a change).
Other Taurus Man Questions
Will a Taurus man come back after no contact?
Short answer, yes.
A no-contact period is not a reason for a Taurus man to write you off.
A lot of times, it’s what he needs to start missing you.
Smothering him with attention can backfire and make the Taurus man retreat if he’s not sure what he wants.
So have no fear. Stopping communication temporarily is not his deal-breaker.

Do Taurus get too attached?
Some may feel that’s the case.
Other women feel like they can’t work hard enough to get a Taurus man involved.
The truth is, Taurus men can come off as clingy due to their possessive traits.
If they do want you, they will start acting territorial and pursue you even if you don’t call them.
After a breakup, a Taurus who is attached will have difficulty putting you in the past and may continue to reach out.
How does a Taurus break up with you?
Usually, a Taurus man breaks up with a brief explanation.
He doesn’t tend to get too into it, partly because he’s not good with words and partly because he’s so ready to break up that he doesn’t feel the need.
It will probably be quick and sudden, although the signs are there beforehand.
How Do Taurus Break Up will give you the signs you should be looking for.
How do you know if a Taurus man misses you?
Hearing from him is a good start.
He’s a lazy communicator and won’t go out of his way to contact anybody who isn’t important to him.
He’ll be all over your social media, too.
Somehow, he’ll always be there in the background.
Like he’s just waiting for you to pay attention to him.

How do you drive a Taurus man crazy?
The easiest way to drive a Taurus guy absolutely wild about you is to combine two things.
Tantalize his senses, and let him chase you.
First you’ve got to hook him—smell divine when you see him. Fragrances that are balanced with floral, earthy and woody smells do the trick.
Look like arm candy, but make it seem effortless and not overdone.
Be touchy-feely and see if the Taurus man reciprocates. If so, feel free to get close!
Make sure he can tell that you like him, but then allow him to pursue you as he likes to take on the masculine role here.
How do you know if a Taurus man is serious about you?
In all honesty, it can be a little confusing when a Taurus man gets serious.
This is because he’ll be doing all the romantic things with you, and seeming genuine about it.
But at the same time, he’ll pull back and seem purposely distant.
Why is this?
As we explain in How Do You Know When a Taurus Man Loves You, it’s because he is serious about you.
Right now, he needs to be more cautious and assess whether you’re really right for him.
This is where women get thrown for a loop.
If you don’t want to make the wrong move, follow the tips in Taurus Man Secrets.
