In the world of horoscopes, Scorpios have a bit of a reputation when it comes to dating. They like to develop intimacy quickly, but then may struggle with trusting whomever they're seeing. Scorpios are often misunderstood, because they are pretty private and keep their true emotions close to their chest.
Scorpios may even create conflict to test their lover's devotion, toxic behavior that often backfires. Scorpios must remember that even in serious relationships, people are entitled to their individuality and emotional autonomy. If they're not careful, their iron grip may be their relationship's death knell.
They hate hearing a no and often pretend they have not heard it. This aspect, unfortunately, makes many a Scorpios obsess with relationships that are toxic. Their pride does not let them graciously back out or let go. Unless, they are the one's breaking a relationship – it's fine but it better not be them hearing a no!
Scorpios tend to put their whole heart and soul into the relationship. They are intense and deeply emotional by nature. If they could be with their soulmate forever, they would. Because Scorpios invest so much of themselves into their relationship, they don't take breakups lightly.
Scorpios find it difficult to trust anyone and are one of the most commitment-phobic people. They fear their partner would cheat on them and hurt their feelings. However, once they commit, they make pretty dedicated and loving partners.
Scorpios also have a need for control, which can stem from their fear of vulnerability. They have a strong desire to be in control of their emotions and their environment, which can cause them to feel insecure when things are out of their control.
For a Scorpio, it's extremely hard to deal with an inner turmoil. And when they feel that they have lost interest in you, they'll panic and become very defensive. They'll avoid confrontations but will also initiate unnecessary discussions about the things that are going wrong in your relationship.
Scorpio's Most Toxic Match: Leo
Leo's trademark arrogance will be too much for Scorpio, leading to almost constant clashes between the two. Given both signs' explosive emotional flair, this is likely to be the couple that gets into fights in public and/or (probably both) bickers constantly while out with friends.
What signs are compatible with a Scorpio? Water signs like Cancer and Pisces and Earth signs like Taurus and Capricorn are the most compatible with a Scorpio.
Disloyalty is the biggest turn-off for Scorpios. Scorpios are deeply passionate and loyal people who expect their partners to be the same. They can sometimes come off as intense, but they are fiercely devoted to those they love.
Scorpios thrive on consistency in relationships.
Though the sign is often conflated with transformation, Scorpios are actually obsessed with keeping up a steady, reliable routine. Scorpios want nothing more than to be a devoted, loyal partner and once they're settled, it takes a lot for them to change their ways.
Scorpios in love
Expect the Scorpio to pursue their lover endlessly and intensely, chasing the one they desire to the ends of the earth. These lovers are perceptive, devoted and loyal, on top of being sexy as all get out. You could say that no other zodiac sign loves harder than Scorpio.
Many, if not most, Scorpios prefer living alone to a roommate lifestyle or shared housing arrangement. Aside from natural tendencies toward introversion and isolation, Scorpio relishes the power that comes with being a lone head of household.
The ability to regenerate and rise from the ashes requires symbolic death, but that doesn't mean breakups are easy for Scorpios. In fact, they have an extremely difficult time letting go. Whether a Scorpio initiates or not, they always feel jilted after a breakup.
They're Extremely Protective, Loyal, and Faithful Lovers
Scorpios are extremely dependable, protective, loyal, and faithful, and even more so if they receive the same from their partner.
The worst thing that a Scorpio does after a break-up is build a wall around his emotions and isolate himself completely. But he would keep a keen eye on his ex-partner's life and there are chances that he would resurface like a ghost from the past. It takes a Scorpio a long time to get over a break-up.
With their characteristic emotional reserve, Geminis can often break a Scorpio's heart. Geminis' reluctance to express their feelings can frustrate Scorpios. Geminis' flighty nature can harm Scorpio's desire for emotional depth and commitment.
The Scorpio is likely to fall for someone thrice. The first time, you will be childish and will give your heart to anyone. However, the second time you will find it a challenge of loving someone and in the final call, you will be matured and cautious.
Primary Love Languages: Physical Touch and Acts of Service
Passionate, intense and extremely emotional, Scorpios are the most extreme bunch in the zodiac. Because Scorpios are so good at plotting and hiding how they truly feel, it can be difficult to really get to know them.
Scorpio demands complete loyalty from those they love. And they are willing to give their hundred percent to those they love. But sometimes in matters of the heart, this need for loyalty turns to obsession. This obsessive trait of ownership can even turn violent, abusive and sometimes destructive for their own good.
Scorpios can be extremely manipulative, at times. They can be big deceivers when it comes to their own benefits. However, this feeling often emerges out of revenge.
Scorpio can be really narcissistic if they have recently been hurt or betrayed. It makes them very vengeful in nature and that can be a little difficult to handle. But if they are in a good place, they're not that narcissistic. If you mess with a Scorpio, it can turn ugly for you.
Scorpios are mysterious, which makes them magnetic to dates and admirers. As a water sign, they're very emotional, but they keep their feelings buried deep down. So while they may intrigue you and draw you in, you'll have a lot more difficulty trying to get to know them.
Scorpio: Scorpions are more susceptible to suffering from depression as they feel deeply and intensely. They invest heavily in their personal relationships and get hurt easily if it is not working or often dwell on subjects hurtful to them in the past.
They usually will not express their anger but if you really hurt them, then be prepared as they may be plotting a revenge against you. If you think you can make amends with them after you hurt them, you are wrong. If you hover around them when they are angry, it will only cast them further away.
