Taurus Man: Traits, Personality, and More

Astrology dice showing the symbols for Taurus man on an astrology chart.

The King himself, Elvis Presley, famously sang a song called, “Only Fools Rush In.” If you’re worried about that characteristic, you can forget about that potential problem altogether if you’re a Taurus man or you’re friendly with a Taurus man. The Taurus male is not someone who blindly charges ahead, not thinking about consequences or circumstances. Instead, one of the main Taurus man characteristics is that of someone who spends a bit of time in thought, pondering what could occur, and what he could avoid based on his next decision.

In a lot of ways, that’s a good thing, as once the Taurus man makes a decision, he’s decided fully and will then move full steam ahead, convinced that he’s doing the right thing. There is a lot to love about a Taurus man’s traits, and yes, there is a bit to watch for, but if you spend some time - as a Taurus man would - learning about these characteristics and thinking about them, we’re pretty sure you’ll come to enjoy the company of a Taurus as much as others do. We’re going to introduce you to some basics regarding a Taurus man’s personality below.

About the Taurus Man - His Overall Personality

The Taurus man, as alluded to above, is ponderous and introspective, which is consistent with the Taurus zodiac sign for both genders. He is going to work his way through every scenario before acting, so he’s anything but impetuous or rash. He’s also generally not very emotional, which can be a good thing for people who don’t want to worry about anyone flying off the handle or suddenly bursting out with any type of drama. Given that ponderous nature, your typical Taurus guy is patient and kind, and he tends to be generous as well. He’s also quite understanding, as he tries to see things from others’ perspectives. It’s never a situation where it’s all about the Taurus man - in fact, it’s the exact opposite most of the time.

However, even though the Taurus man has a long fuse, once it’s lit, it can burn quite hot, so to speak. He can get angry and stay that way for a while. He can also be stubborn and sometimes materialistic. All that watching of people and thinking can lead to some difficult thoughts. The Taurus personality in a male is one that can seem quite complicated every now and then given his tendency to be somewhat moody.

Dating a Taurus Man - Love and Relationships

If you’re ready for a deep, meaningful and committed relationship, then the Taurus guy is what you want. Taurus men in relationships are loyal, caring, loving, and giving in just about every way imaginable. As is the case with everything he does, the Taurus man, much like the Taurus woman, incidentally, is going to take his time when he meets someone. This can come off as a lack of interest, but he’s just pondering what to do next. He’s not going to rush into anything, particularly something like this, as a relationship is something he’ll only get into if he’s all-in.

The Taurus man requires a deep and emotional if not spiritual connection. He’s not superfluous and he’s not all that concerned about outward appearance. He wants someone he can talk to, someone he can spend time with effortlessly and someone who understands him. He’s not going to be some “wild Taurus guy” who’s constantly shuffling you off from one party to the next. He’s just fine with a quiet evening alone, talking about things that matter. About the only thing to watch for with Taurus men in relationships is that considering all the thought that went into this before the relationship started, he’s not going to deal with you getting attention from others well. He can be jealous and in some cases possessive. Overall, though dating a Taurus man can be a meaningful experience. To find out more, see our Zodiac love compatibility chart.

The Taurus Man - Home and Family Life

For the Taurus man, deciding to get into a relationship is a big decision. Deciding to get married is that much bigger, so if he takes that step, he couldn’t possibly be more convinced that this is how he wants to spend his life. He loves forever, and his whole heart is tossed vulnerably into the situation, as he knows he’s found “the one” when he finally finds his spouse. He is faithful, loving, giving and these marriages are truly not all about the Taurus man - they’re about the other person most of the time.

The Taurus man is also a good provider, which means his personality is such that he’s a natural as a father. He’s nurturing, thoughtful and kind, and his children will respond to him lovingly as a result. He can also be demanding in certain ways, however, as he expects those around him to be as loyal and committed to the family as he is. When he senses that this is not the case, things can become difficult for a period of time. Overall, though, the Taurus man lives a good, solid, committed life with his family.

Taurus Man Traits - A Good, Loyal Friend

It should be clear by now that the Taurus man is someone who thinks before he acts, and he’s not someone to take wild chances. This is true even of friendships. If he thinks he can add value to someone’s life and that person can respond in kind, he will be as loyal a friend as anyone could ever have. He’s also a warm, kind, caring, and generally selfless friend who will be there when you need him and who will listen when you have something to say. You call the Taurus guy when you need to vent or explain something difficult.

However, if you want a friend who’s going to go skydiving with you on a moment’s notice, who’s going to jump on a plane to Europe without luggage to go to a big party, or someone to paint the town red and straddle the line of trouble, the Taurus guy is not who you should call. He’s not going to act out like that, and he’s not going to take risks that he sees as unnecessary. He’s the guy you order pizza with and have beers while watching sports or movies. He’s the guy you play golf with on the weekends and who comes over to help you move. The Taurus man is a tremendous friend, but he’s not going to be your “crazy memories” friend.

The Taurus Man - Careers and Money

If you want a steady, loyal, and dependable employee or coworker, you could do a lot worse than the Taurus man. He’s going to show up every day, give you an honest day’s work every time, and make sure that all of his tasks are handled properly before he goes home. He’s not going to be a prima donna; it’s never going to be all about the Taurus man in a meeting and he’s not going to look to step on any toes or stab anyone in the back. You can trust the Taurus man in a professional setting, as he’s going to do the right thing.

However, for those who may live with but not work with the Taurus man, it can get a bit frustrating. That’s because some feel that the Taurus guy is not overly ambitious. He’s not going to take charge of a situation or a group of people and lead them to the next level very often. He’s content to complete his work, to take things one step at a time and to slowly build his career in a methodical manner. That can lead to the Taurus man getting passed over in certain situations, which can, in turn, lead to negative feelings for the Taurus man. However, Taurus men tend to make great leaders when they are in that position, as they will make sure that those who work for them are happy and fulfilled.

Overall, the Taurus man is one that is loyal, kind, calm, and reassuring. You’re happy to have him around as a friend, a lover, a coworker, and a spouse. He’s not going to try to hurt you, but he can come off as complicated at times. Taurus man is a good man, and one that’s worthwhile to have in your life.
