When A Taurus Man Is Hurt (7 Ways To Tell)

by Sonya Schwartz

If you are dating a Taurus man, you are likely to have fallen pretty hard thanks to his many positive traits. A relationship with a Taurus can be wonderful due to his generous and attentive nature that lends itself well to being a fantastic partner. However, there are times that he may display behavior that we don’t understand and it is often when his feelings may have been hurt. 

Here, in this article, we look at how will a Taurus man act when he has been hurt by the person he is in a relationship with. While not all signs mean that you have hurt him, at least one or two will be present. 

When you notice any of them, or you are worried at all that you have hurt a Taurus man you are seeing, it is best to broach the subject directly. He is not a zodiac sign that will bring things up that need to be discussed. Instead, his self-indulgent and stubborn ways will mean that, as a Taurus man, he will never bring up the subject of when he feels wronged. 

Instead, he will expect you to know straight away and may even be more hurt by the fact that you don’t immediately know what you have done wrong. This is all the more reason to see why your Taurus guy is acting oddly so you can resolve any problems between the two of you before they get out of hand.  

When A Taurus Man Is Hurt, How Does He Act? 

1. Frosty

One clear method that Taurus men let you see how hurt they are is by acting frosty towards you a lot of the time. This means that any dealings that the two of you have - whether you are in a relationship or just seeing each other - will have an icy cool exterior to them, on his part. 

This means that his conversations with you may seem transactional, with as minimal emotion in them as possible. He will also steer clear of touching you in any way, which is very unusual for a Taurus male in love. 

2. Vague

One way that a Taurus man will add to the frosty feeling that is pervading your interactions is to be very vague when he answers any of your questions or suggestions to make plans with one another. 

Vague

He will give exceedingly non-committal answers that allow him to do as he pleases when it comes to future dates or events together. If his answers to questions are vague, it is because he is unsure who to talk to you while he is dealing with the new level of hurt that he is dealing with.

3. Elusive

In addition to being vague, a Taurus man will be particularly elusive when he is suffering from hurt. This is always the case when he feels wronged by a person. The result is that he will shirk any responsibilities he has with you and also ensure that you have as little opportunity to figure out why he is upset as possible, without you actually directly asking him. 

It can be very frustrating dealing with such behavior all the time as at times it is not practical when you are trying to spend time with him. Additionally, it can be pretty emotionally immature. For that reason, it is best to talk to him and see what has made your Taurus man act like he is. 

4. Defensive

A common characteristic for people to display when they have been upset or emotionally wounded by their partner is to go on the defensive. This is particularly the case if you are in a relationship with a Taurus.

The reason is that by being defensive over everything, it is your Taurus guy’s way of dealing with the fact that he could be partly responsible for what caused his initial upset. Being defensive reflects all the blame back on you so that you have to own up to what went wrong. 

This can be quite unfair and unfounded in the majority of situations. As relationships are between two people, arguments between a couple are often caused by wrongdoings on both people's part. If you feel your Taurus man is being overly defensive for this reason, you are quite within your rights to call him out on it. 

5. Angry

Along with being defensive, Taurus men are commonly very angry people when they have been suffering from pain caused by their partners. While it is quite understandable for people to be angry in the face of wrongdoing against them, it can make it difficult to have an adult conversation to sort the problem out. 

If you have hurt a Taurus man who then goes on to become very angry at you, it may be a good idea to let them calm down so that you can talk things through far more calmly at a later date. Plus, this gives you more time to go over what has happened in your head and get your reaction straight. It is often the case that when one person has become angry through an issue in between a couple, the other person ends up getting upset too. 

Having a time out can, therefore, make things easier on your relationship for when you do end up being able to talk things through with your Taurus man. 

6. Immature

As briefly alluded to, a Taurus man can be quite emotionally immature when he feels he has been wronged by his partner. This means that he can say some puerile things that are said with the intention of causing the optimum amount of pain possible to this partner. This is down to their self-indulgent character where they find it difficult to think of others - particularly when that huge Taurus ego has been challenged. 

The best thing to do in situations like this where you feel your Taurus guy is being guilty of acting emotionally immature is to meet it head-on with some adult conversation that is direct and to the point. If you don’t, you can end up seeing your relationship go through a lot more damage which emotionally immature behavior can do so easily. The reason being is that the person who is emotionally immature does not know when to stop. Instead, they keep acting in their insensitive ways which can cause so much pain, so quickly. 

7. Physically Distant

Taurus men love to touch the ones that they love. This means holding hands, putting their hand son your knee, kissing you, and, of course, having sex with you. If they feel they have been emotionally wronged by their partner, they can demonstrate it by repealing all those tactile moments. They will become physically distant from you and shy away from any moments of closeness. This can mean no longer wanting to hold your hand when out in public and absolutely no kissing or sex when at home. 

This can be quite difficult to deal with as it will so often be such a stark difference as to what usually goes on in a relationship with Taurus men who are always so physically demonstrative with the people they love. If this is the case, and you have also apologized for what has upset your Taurus man, point out to him how his actions make you feel. Taurus men can be so self-involved that he may not have even realized what he is doing.
