A couple of years back, I incidentally found myself in a relationship with a stranger. The drama leading up to that is incredible and hilarious. Both our families were playing a match-making game. Then when I found out he was a Taurus, naturally, I thought to myself “this could work”, after all, Taurus guys are romantic as hell. So, I went along with the matchmaking.
One month into the relationship, it dawned on me that this man is pretty interesting! Slowly, but steadily, it crept in on me that I wanted - no, I needed this to work. And just when I began to have vested interests, things started getting shaky. I was no longer receiving the amount of attention I’d become used to, and so, I went on a journey towards making him jealous by flirting with other people.
I figured; seeing men literally drool over me as I flung my hair and walked away, then pausing to throw them a look over my shoulder as I winked, would jar him back into total commitment. Pause for effect. Let’s just say, I’m the one who wound up hurt.
Still reeling from the unforeseen turn of events, I later realized that my journey towards understanding a Taurus man was a thrilling walk that made me do a double-take and an abrupt U-turn in my approach to this man. Bottomline - making Taurus men jealous does not make a good relationship. So, if you want to make a Taurus man happy and free from jealousy, the following tips will help.
