The good, the bad, the Scorpio man.

So you’re dating, in love with, or married to a Scorpio man, huh? You have probably learned a thing or two about him in the short or long time you two have been together. If you are a Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces, or Virgo, maybe what you love or like most about him is how perfect a match he is for you!

But just because you're sign isn't compatible with his, doesn't mean it's not meant to be. Whether it’s true love or not, the time you two spend together will be memorable and happy, hopefully — we're all rooting for you. We're also here to help you to better see and know the man you have fallen for. 


1. He LOVES being right about everything, all the time (who doesn't?)

"I told you so," may just about be the most ANNOYING phrase in the English language. No one likes to admit that they were wrong about something. The same goes for your man. He can sometimes be a "know it all," which is also equally annoying, but that's only because he doesn't like to take the hit to his ego (What is it with men and their ego?).

He can't be right about everything all the time though. There will be times when you know something that he doesn't and vice versa. Don't rub it in his face though. Just use it as an opportunity to teach him something new. And next time maybe he'll be more humble about things. MAYBE. 

2. He easily gets jealous of other men in your life.

That hug with your male friend lasted too long, or that guy on the street gave you a smile too friendly and a stare that lasted a little too long. Maybe he's suspicious of your male coworker, even though you have told him a hundred times that there is nothing going on between you two. Jealously is a powerful emotion. In his eyes, every male that you encounter is a potential threat.

One way you can help to quell these feelings of jealousy is to realize and acknowledge that he's insecure in your relationship. Deep down he could feel that he's not good enough for you in some way and that's why he has a target on every guy's back. Let him know that you have eyes ONLY for him by being a little more affectionate with him. Bring on the PDA. 

3. Friendships are REALLY important to him.

He has known his best friend since childhood and some of his other close friends for about just as long. Longtime friendships are important to him because he knows that good friends are hard to come by. He's a loyal and true friend and he will stick by his friends in good times and bad. So don't get mad at him if he has to run out in the middle of your Game of Thrones marathon to go help a friend.

4. Don't try to plan a surprise for him  he'll catch on.

If you are trying to plan a surprise birthday party for him, chances are he's already on to you. He may not know exactly what you have planned, but he does know something is up.

Scorpios are extremely suspicious by nature. You'll find that his skills of perception rival that of a veteran detective. He listens to his gut and pays attention to his surroundings. If you're sneaking around and being quieter more so than usual, these will be red flags to him. So if you are trying to hide something from him, it won't stay hidden forever. 

5. He is not afraid of anything. 

New challenges excite him. You'll find that he jumps at the chance to try something new. Whether it be skydiving, mountain climbing, or camping alone in the woods for a weekend, nothing scares him. His bravery knows no bounds. Take advantage of this by getting him to try the things that you like. He will appreciate the opportunity to find something new to conquer and love. 

6. If you can't be honest with him, then you can't be in a relationship with him. 

It sounds brutal, but honesty is one of those things he values in a relationship above all else. And you should too! If you have any skeletons in your closet now is the time to tell him. A healthy relationship is founded on honesty.

You don't need to reveal all your secrets though, just tell him how you really feel about certain things. He thinks honesty is important in a relationship because it's how he gets to know the real you.

7. He likes to take charge of situations.

And you should let him! He makes an excellent leader because he can stay calm, cool and collected in stressful situations. He knows exactly how to deal with the situation because he has already accessed it and found the best solution. He's assertive and dedicated so people will always listen to him because they know they can count on him.

8. If you can't make decisions easily, you won't be able to make it work between you. 

Scorpios strongly dislike passive people. He's the kind of person that always knows what he wants and how to get it. He doesn't beat around the bush, or just accept things the way they are. He gets right to the point. If you have something to say, speak up!

Don't keep your opinions to yourself, you won't offend him. He genuinely wants to know what you think. If you hate seafood and he suggests it for dinner, tell him you don't like it instead of pretending you do. Honesty remember?

9. He'll tell you what's on his mind.

He will probably be the first one to say, "I love you." He won't waste anytime denying or hiding his feelings for you. Scorpios live to express their emotions. Which is good for you, because you'll never have to wonder how he REALLY feels about you. He loves to feel the feels. ALL the feels. 

He won't be afraid to cry at his sister's wedding or squeal like a little girl when he gets home and tells you about his promotion at work. He loves being free from that stereotype that men don't share when they care

10. He's passionate about everything, especially life. 

He is crazy about you, his job, kayaking, hiking, cooking, and building things with his hands. Just like other Scorpios, his passion shows through in everything he loves. He could go on and on about the merits of this wood vs. that wood for an end table. Sometimes he can get so caught up in his job or a project that he loses track of time. But yet you could sit there all day and watch him work because you love the way he invests his heart and soul into everything he is passionate about.


All this being said, no two Scorpios are the same. You may find that this sounds exactly like your man, or you might find that only some of this is him. Either way, we hope we have helped you on your journey to discovering how you can better love and get to know your man!
