The scorpion might be an intense and powerful creature, but it is also known for being cagey and secretive. Even so, the sign of Scorpio is renowned for its intensity in relationships. However, that doesn’t mean they are any easier to read or understand than other zodiac signs. If anything, the way they handle their feelings makes them more complicated than ever before.
When it comes to understanding your Scorpio man in love, you need a little insight into what makes him tick. Fortunately – or unfortunately, if you’re currently dating a Scorpio – it’s not hard to find information about this mysterious sign. Here are some things you should know about the Scorpio man in love if you plan on having a long-lasting relationship with one:
He’s Obsessed With Commitment
Scorpio men are notorious for being obsessed with getting married. In fact, they are one sign that tends towards matrimony more than the others. This means they’re very likely to want some level of commitment from you early on in your relationship if it progresses to that point.
If you don’t feel the same way, be warned: a Scorpio man might try to change your mind. They are known for being extremely persistent and will do everything in their power to convince you to commit to them.
If you’re not ready for this or don’t want a serious relationship, you’ll need to make that clear from the beginning. After all, you don’t want to end up resenting your boyfriend if he won’t take no for an answer.
He’s Incredibly Jealous
As we’ve mentioned, a Scorpio man is obsessed with reassurance and commitment. While this is all well and good, it also means that he’s likely to be extremely jealous.
This doesn’t just apply to cheating, either. If you go on a work trip, go to a party, or even just spend time with your friends, you’re likely to face a jealous boyfriend. You shouldn’t have to feel like you’re constantly being watched or that you can’t be yourself, but that’s the reality of dating a jealous Scorpio.
If he’s this way from the start, you’re going to find yourself in a very stressful relationship. Make sure he knows how to handle his jealousy before you get into a relationship with him.
He Might be Currently Dating Someone Else at the Same Time as You
It’s important not to generalize, but Scorpios are known for dating several people at once. This could be because they’re not sure what they want in a partner or they’re extremely busy and don’t have time for one-on-one dating.
You might not like the idea of your boyfriend dating other people, but if you’re dating a Scorpio, it’s likely to happen at some point. And you need to understand that it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
If you’re dating someone who is currently dating other people, it’s likely because they are being honest with you.
In fact, many people prefer dating someone who is already in a relationship because it means they are less likely to get hurt. It also means that you’re not the only person in the relationship.
He May Be Terrified of Abandonment
Like many other signs, Scorpios tend to be intense and serious people. It’s likely that they have a difficult childhood and family life.
It’s very probable that they might have dealt with abandonment. Because they are so intense, they are prone to scaring people off. It’s likely that even in your early relationship you’ll scare him off – or he will scare you off.
It’s not something that can be avoided, but it’s important to understand what’s going on under the surface. He might need reassurance that you aren’t going anywhere.
This doesn’t mean you have to be the clingy and insecure type. But if he’s told you that he fears abandonment, you need to make sure you reassure him as often as possible.
He Can Be Controlling and Possessive
All of the above is likely to turn into controlling and possessive behavior. You might find that your boyfriend is incredibly jealous of your time and attention. He might want you to give up your hobbies and interests completely.
If you want a healthy relationship, especially at the beginning when you are still getting to know each other, you need to make sure he understands that you need your own time and space. It might feel a bit awkward to talk about this so soon, but it’s important to talk about the things that matter and make each other happy. You also need to be honest with him about your needs and expectations.
The Bottom Line
The key thing to remember when dating a Scorpio man is that they don’t open up easily. They tend to be secretive and cagey with their emotions, and they don’t always know how they feel until they’ve had time to process it.
This means you need to give him time and space to talk things through in his own way. When you date a Scorpio man, you need to understand that he is intense, obsessive, and potentially jealous.
You also need to make sure you give him reassurance that you aren’t going anywhere. If you can do these things, you’re well on your way to a successful and long-lasting relationship with a Scorpio man.
