Scorpio is the eight sign of the Zodiac calendar and includes those born between 23rd October and 21st of November. Known for their intense and unyielding nature, Scorpios make for unforgettable relationships. Here are a few things to enjoy as well as be careful of when dating a Scorpio man.
For Scorpios, love is an all or nothing experience. There are no half-measures with them when wooing the partner of their dreams. So if you have just started dating a Scorpio guy, get ready to be completely swept off your feet. He is sure to go the whole length of wining and dining you besides landing the most amazing gifts in your lap. More than that, you will be completely bowled over by the depth and intensity of his emotions. Love is for him a throbbing, blood red passion and once is sure that you are the woman for him, he will be ready to go to the end of the world to make you his.
The flip side of a Scorpio lover’s intensity is an excess which can overwhelm the most sedate of women. While this trait seems flattering in the early stages of a relationship, after a while an emotional life which is perpetually high strung may become difficult to enjoy. To the Scorpio man, love is an all-consuming passion. Not only does he take his love life very seriously, he expects his partner to reciprocate his feelings with the same white heat intensity. This is likely to scare away or at least unnerve women who are less comfortable with such overwhelming emotions. This is perhaps why most of the times Scorpio men are compatible with women from their own Zodiac sign who are able to withstand and even return their intensity.
Interestingly however, Scorpios are well known for their secrecy. Despite the fact, that they feel and believe strongly, they are able to hide their emotions beneath a calm and deliberate exterior. So when you first meet a Scorpio guy, you may be put off by his cautious and reserved nature. But underneath that still facade, you can be sure of a keen mind, working furiously to analyze your every word, move and display of emotion. Scorpios are believed to have very perceptive natures and can often see through superficiality, a quality which incidentally they hate. If you happen to really like a Scorpio guy, your best bet would be to be completely honest about yourself and your feelings for him. The more recourse you take to subterfuge and deceit, the further he will move away from you.
An extreme temperament is yet another distinctive characteristic of a Scorpio man. His world is largely made up of black and white entities with only rare shades of grey. At first you may find him cautious and reticent regarding your relationship. However once he decides you are the partner for him, he is likely to amaze you with the intensity of his love and emotions. Likewise, when a relationship does not work out for a Scorpio, the relevant partner will cease to exist completely for him. If you happen to turn out as an ex, don’t even expect to continue as ‘friends’ with the guy or harbor secret hopes of enticing him to return to you. You can throw as many tantrums as you please or sell your soul to the Devil, once a Scorpio guy leaves, you have probably seen the last of him.
In keeping with the Scorpio penchant for extremes, is a possessive streak in relationships. Once you have said ‘yes’ to your Scorpio lover, he will expect you to honor that in letter and spirit. Unlike a Libran lover who can view things with equanimity, don’t expect your Scorpio guy to understand that your lunch date with an ex was just about ‘keeping up with each other’. For a Scorpio man, you either belong to him completely or you better have nothing to do with him at all. This possessiveness may turn out to be one of the major hurdles in a relationship with a Scorpio man. So before you decide to say ‘yes’ , ask yourself if you are ready for this level of commitment in a relationship.
Related to the above characteristic of a Scorpio guy is his legendary vindictiveness, aptly symbolized by the Scorpion which carries a deadly sting in its tail. He is one person who will never forgive a hurt that he has received and no matter how much water has flown under the bridge, never forget it either. This hard, revengeful nature is one of the worst kept secrets of the Scorpio male and if you ever happen to dump one, be careful of ever crossing paths with him again. However, one could see this as the other side of a steadfast and deeply perceptive nature which goes to the heart of a matter and sees it as it actually is. This degree of acuteness makes it difficult for a Scorpio to be forgiving of deceit and duplicity and is probably responsible for his hard, unyielding nature.
When dating a Scorpio guy, you may find him disappear from your life now and then. This is because he needs to be by himself from time to time, probably as a way of balancing out his excessive involvement in emotions and surroundings. This is not only typical of the extreme temperament of a Scorpio but also one suspects, necessary to maintain the required level of sanity and perspective in daily living. So the next time, you find your Scorpio boyfriend turn elusive, he is probably recharging his batteries in his hideout tucked away in a remote spot near the sea or in the mountains.
Loving or hating with the tenacity and intensity of a Scorpion, there are no half-measures with the man who bears this Zodiac sign. A relationship with a Scorpio man may either be the worst or most fantastic you have ever had but one thing it will not be is, forgettable.
