Earth sign Taurus is a traditionalist, with long-held views and values, who doesn’t like to stray too far outside her comfort zone. The Gemini man, on the other hand, is an oddball Air sign; reveling in the unconventional and the experimental.
So, at first glance, this is obviously a case of opposites attracting, which is not always a sure-fire recipe for success. Despite the fact that they both know that this may not be the most harmonious of pairings, this couple often stays together for a long time anyway, ignoring the fact that they may be better off with someone else.
Certainly, things will go well in the bedroom if nowhere else, so maybe this is the reason so many Taurus women and Gemini men choose to go the distance. Another reason why this may work is that the Taurus woman is so placid and the Gemini man so flighty. He needs to prance around, exploring away and returning to a partner who will listen to all his tall tales, and the Taurus woman is the happy homemaker, content to hold the fort as the Gemini man circles and comes back to her every night.
Neither of these two cares much for romance, which is a good start at least. Gemini men are adept at flattering women, which will be ignored by the Taurus woman who is not interested in silver-tongued charmers, but who values practical gestures of commitment instead.
As such, their relationship may seem a bit imbalanced, with the Taurus women picking up after the will o’ the-wisp Gemini man, but actually, he will highly prize her solid attention to detail, for he needs someone to tame his rambling ways and keep him on an even footing. His emotional pace will also surprise the Taurus woman, especially the speed of his thought process and his articulation, and she may have to be the one to point him in the direction of practical action when he just wants to talk through his feelings.
Despite this, the Taurus woman, who craves stability, will feel extremely comfortable in this relationship, as she will be the one who sets the tone, directs the pace, and keeps everything ticking over nicely. Perfect for a sign who finds it hard to relinquish control!
Sex between these two can often turn into something of a learning experience for both parties. The Taurus woman has a high libido and enjoys sex, but is not usually the most adventurous of partners in the bedroom. The Gemini man, on the other hand, is all about experimentation, and he will keep spicing things up by trying new things, much to the Taurus woman’s delight. For his part, the Gemini man will enjoy being the one to push the boundaries in the bedroom and will take great pleasure in thinking up new ideas for the Taurus woman to try.
What to expect on a first date:
The Gemini Man:
Gemini men love to talk, so expect an unabashed chatterbox and that is probably what you’ll get. Be prepared for lots of stories and monologues, but these will usually be interesting ones from the Gemini man’s many adventures, so you shouldn’t get bored. Gemini men are not naturally romantic, so don’t expect flowers and candles, he’s more likely to drag you off on a hike somewhere to get out some of his restless energy. Wherever he takes you, expect to pick up the pace. This is not a man that likes to take things slowly.
The Gemini man can be something of a handful in terms of his energy levels and generally rather wired demeanor, so the Taurus woman will provide the perfect foil for his exuberant nature. On a first date expect the Taurus woman to be a great listener who will let the Gemini man talk and talk to his heart’s content. She’ll naturally be interested in all that the Gemini man has seen and experienced, as it may be very different from her style of adventures, so she will be intrigued to hear from someone with another worldview to hers.
How to Attract a Taurus Woman as a Gemini Man:
Taurus women love anything practical, so if you can unblock her sink she will be smitten, even if this doesn’t sound like the most romantic of gestures! Use your skills to do things to impress her and try to dial down on the fluffy airhead side of your personality. Forgetting dates or times of meetings is a definite no-no, as is being flaky and canceling on her or turning up at the wrong restaurant. She wants someone serious who will treat her the way she feels she deserves.
How to Attract a Gemini Man as a Taurus Woman:
Does anyone ever need to do anything to attract a Gemini man? They are well-known show-offs, who like to dance around and play to an audience. Gemini men are intense people, who thrive on action and excitement, so you really don’t need to do much to pique their interest other than lend them an ear. If anything the Taurus woman’s serene nature will appeal to the Gemini man no end. He’s so wired that a bit of calm will soothe him in a way that he needs.
The Taurus woman and Gemini man could definitely excel if they decide to go into business together, or even if they just want to spruce up their shared love nest. The Gemini man is creative and great at using things like social media to further his brand, and the Taurus woman is a whizz with financial planning and project work, so between them, they are a force to be reckoned with. The Taurus woman lends a natural grace and elegance to the proceedings and Gemini is full of quirky marketing strategies that mean that this pair complements each other best when they are getting creative.
Things tend to fall apart for this couple when they argue, so if they can avoid ever falling out then things will stay sweet forever. Unfortunately, this is unrealistic for any couple, and when the disagreements come they can often end up as deal-breakers. The Gemini man is a fan of thinking out loud and debating ideas, making him something of a devil’s advocate which can infuriate the Taurus woman. The Gemini man also has a rather laissez-faire attitude to life, preferring to learn by doing, meaning that he may make mistakes. This is fine by him, as it’s all part of the process, but the Taurus woman can be quick to point out when and how he screwed up, something that will not sit well with the experimental sign of the Twins. At the end of the day, if this couple wants to stay together and can’t hash it out as a duo, marriage counseling can help to work out the kinks with an objective third party.
Is the relationship likely to last?
Often this pair lasts longer than they should, as their differences start out as attractions, with each being intrigued to know more about someone so different. By the time they realize that they have little in common, and the initial cute quirks reveal themselves as completely different approaches to life, it can be too late, as they have already moved in together and breaking up their shared possessions would be more hassle than staying together.
