The Taurus man in a relationship

A Taurus man tends to be more self-conscious and reserved around people he is unfamiliar with. This makes difficult for him to meet and socialize with new people. However if he finds a partner who is as loyal as he is, the Taurus man will give everything to strengthen their relationship. Though he is more of an introvert and remains quite, he can sometimes come off to be extremely possessive and jealous in order to protect what he thinks is his own.  Apart from this he is very affectionate, romantic and sensual. He likes courting his better half and also expects reciprocation. He is not a daring person but loves the pleasure that lies in the warmth when two bodies come in contact. He’s not much adventurous but definitely not boring as well. Things can become very interesting with the right partner and he is also an athletic lover. He loves to be pampered and has a tendency to become more like his partner’s spoiled son than a lover. He is also very loyal and will do everything in order to keep his partner happy. A Taurus man loves to spend time with family and can be unbelievably good father too. These make him a husband every woman would want to have.
