Taurus Man Break Up (Why and How To Cope)

Last updated on June 13, 2022 by Sonya Schwartz

Taurus men are loyal, loving, and committed in relationships. But how does the Taurus man react after a breakup? If you’ve recently split from your Taurus guy you might want to know how he’s feeling.

Taurus Men In Relationships

Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac and as such, finds comfort in the familiar. Family and friends are important to this sign.

Taurus is an earth sign and this is evident in Taurus men especially. These guys are solid and dependable. They won’t mess you around with mind games. If they like you you’ll know it.

They’ll want to settle down with you and make a life with you. They are sensitive to your needs in a sensual and grounded way. You become their best friend. 

Taurus is associated with material things. Taurus gets pleasure from owning things. They are also connected with the senses of taste, touch, and smell. Physical contact is therefore important to them. To Taureans, love means physical affection.  

Taurus men have strengths and weaknesses like any other Zodiac sign. Sure, they might be strong, faithful, and reliable, but they can also be stubborn and possessive. And, because they like routine and security, dare I say it, a little bit boring.  

They also don’t like being told what to do. These guys are independent and go their own way. They’re perfectly happy with you coming along, so long as you follow their lead.

So if Taurus men love the security and are loyal partners, what would cause them to break up the relationship? And will Taurus man come back after break up

What Causes Taurus Men To Break Up With You?

1. You cheated on him

For the Taurus man, cheating is the one thing he can’t forgive or forget. For a start, it reflects badly on his love life, and second, this man would die for his friends. So you can bet he rates loyalty very highly.

A cheating partner is the ultimate deal-breaker for him. No excuses, no second chances. Cheat on a Taurus man and you’re out.

2. You’re too spontaneous for him

These guys like security, the mundane, and a routine to stick to. They like to plan things in advance. They don’t like surprises and they never act on impulse.

Whilst they might have been attracted to your zest for life and adventure at the start of the relationship, they would have expected you to settle down by now. 

3. He can’t control you

The Taurus motto is ‘I have’ or ‘I own’. So it’s hardly surprising to learn that one of Taurus man’s weaknesses is that he likes to be in control of his women. There are going to be problems if you are an independent woman with no intention of being controlled by any man.

You could have fallen for his sensual charm and strong earthly kindness. But now you’ve got together you realize that in fact, he’s a bit of a male chauvinist when it comes to women in the 21st century. Trouble is, he’s realized too and broken up with you.

Why Would You Break Up With A Taurus Man?

Of course, it takes two to break up. So here are some reasons why women break up with Taurus men.

1. He’s too boring

You might ask yourself why does Taurus man keep coming back? Well, they sure do love their routines, and for some women (Capricorn or Virgo springs to mind) this suits them down to the ground. But for others, it becomes claustrophobic and restricting.

If you are more of the impulsive type Taurus man will drive you mad with his insistence on planning everything.

2. He’s too jealous

Once you’re nestled under a Taurean wing don’t expect to look out from under it at other men. Your Taurean guy is purposely shielding you from the dangerous glare of wicked men who only want one thing.

Women with a flirtatious nature need not apply. You’ll get twenty questions when you get home. Most women can’t handle this kind of behavior.

3. Too obstinate

Taurus is the sign of the bull. The bull typically digs its heels in and won’t be moved. For these guys, it’s either their way or the highway. You won’t be able to change their mind.

Once they’ve made a decision (for the both of you) that decision stands. Even if it’s clearly wrong. Taurus man acts like a toddler that refuses to move.

How Does A Taurus Man Feel After A Breakup?

Once a relationship is over we have no way of knowing how our ex is faring. However, we can look at their star sign to glean some understanding as to how they might cope or feel.

Once Taureans are committed, they are committed for life. They invest everything into their partner. This is serious for them. They have yearned for this security all their life. If they ended it they must have had good reason.

How Does A Taurus Man Feel After A Breakup

However, if their partner ended it they’ll be feeling quite different in these circumstances.

Is it like pulling teeth getting him to spend time with you?
The key to solving is understanding men on a much deeper emotional level. The number #1 factor that causes men to behave this way is actually relatively easy to change with a few subtle things you can say to him.

Take this quick quiz to see if he actually likes you!

1. If Taurus man ended it

Even if the Taurus man ended it himself he’ll still feel like he’s lost everything. This is because he has put a lot of time and effort into this relationship.

He has now lost this investment. He has also lost the security and sense of safety the relationship afforded him. He spent a long time looking for you. 

Taurus men see their partners as possessions to own. It’s as if they attach material value to them. As such, he’ll want to get back this valuable possession.

2. If you ended it

If you were the one that ended the relationship it will be extremely hard for Taurus man to accept it. His obstinate nature and stubborn outlook on life mean that he finds it hard to acknowledge other people’s opinions and decisions.

You have to understand that he probably never saw it coming. Moreover, he thought it would last forever. So this is likely to come as an enormous shock to him.

However, if you want to get him back it’s worth considering the no contact rule with a Taurus man. This will clarify whether he misses you or not. 


How do Taurus men deal with breakups?

They always regret a breakup, no matter who ended it. This is because they have a pathological need for security. When they find the right one they put all their energy into building a life with that person. Realizing it was all for nothing is a terrible blow.

How does a Taurus man feel after a breakup?

Taurus isn’t a fire sign like Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius. Fire signs have unpredictable tempers and can blow up with rage. This earth sign will go to the ground to nurse any wounds inflicted during the breakup.

How long does it take a Taurus man to get over a breakup?

It can take Taurus man longer than other star signs when it comes to letting go. Only because they invest so much time and energy into their relationships. Once they’ve found the one, all they want to do is settle down and make a life with that person.

Do Taurus go back to their exes?

Will a Taurus man ever come back? Some Taureans never go back to an ex. For them, it’s a matter of pride and self-esteem. On the other hand, remember that Taurus is a possessive sign so it would have been hard for him to let go in the first place.  

Do Taurus move on quickly?

It takes Taurus a while to regain his sense of balance and stability after a break-up. He’s feeling like the rug has been pulled from under his feet. There’s no way he’ll move on quickly until his feet are back firmly planted on solid earth.


Taurus men can make loving, committed, and sensitive partners, so long as you learn to deal with their stubborn and possessive nature.

Do you feel like all you think about is him, but he only thinks about himself?
This doesn't mean he doesn't like you. You have to understand how he is wired. Once you do, you'll find there is a subtle thing you can say that to him that will drastically change how he shows his emotions towards you.

Take this quick quiz that looks at whether he actually likes you or not!

  1. So it's been a year..I still love my Taurus man and he knows it..but will at times ignore me completely..I want to take his stuff back to him but he refuses to respond to an answer

    1. Hello i am a taurus male myself. i’m not sure if yall are still on no contact, but if you ended things he most likely is still holding a grudge against you my suggest is to stop texting him and see what happens. if he decides to text you then you got your answer and if he doesn’t decide to text you then unfortunately hes going to be very bitter towards you for however long.

  2. This isn't true. The Taurus I have been on and off with runs hot and cold, has attachment issues, and has decision issues. He pays his taxes late, and other things I won't mention. He is a procrastinator and self absorbed. Astrologists always say, this is the nice guy of the signs, but I beg to differ. I have been out with several. One was married, and I found out after the fact, dumped him right then. Another one stayed in a really bad marriage, and only stood up to his abusive wife once. Told me, he can't fall in love right now. (which I got)He all of a sudden moved away. Then, I found out, he dumped her less then two years later in their new location and quickly remarried. Others on a dating site were also married and trying to cheat. The one I ended up with, was also seeing others at the beginning and never told me. I ended up accidently finding out. Several months later, we ended up back together. But he always kept me at arms length and a major workaholic. While they are nice when you are actually on a date with them, they are very non committal and independent. It takes them forever to make up their minds. And I have been out with five of them and turned down other Taurus guys when I figured out they were married. The one I loved, was not possessive, didn't seem to care about security and was more into traveling for his job, getting ahead and working 24/7 then, anything. Money, power, greed, self centered, ego. Not sure what sign would go with me now. I am a Cancer. That is supposed to be my LOVE sign. More like heart break sign.

    1. Hi Anne, I would simply like to just mention one thing about Taurus’s and other signs for this matter, we must take into account of our Eastern signs (Chinese animal zodiacs) for if it is not compatible with theirs then it can be a deal breaker and same as western sun signs, wether you’re an Aries, pieces or Leo. The two must click with both of his as well.

      But! One last little tip as well; that may very well break the entire relationship regardless of the perfect alignment of both eastern and western... if his upbringing, moral views, ambitions hopes and overall outlook on life isn’t the same as yours then forget the Roses and dinner light under the Tuscan Mediterranean stars. It will be a precarious relationship in the end. Short term.

      Maybe you can reconsider your thoughts on bulls and perhaps view them as humanly as yourself.

      I’m a practitioner astrologist who’s working on a book of on all that I had explained to you about the signs. I’m on here for research by others comments.

      I wish you all the best to your future love endeavors.
