They don't play, for better or worse.

Scorpios are one of the (if not THE) most intense signs you'll ever encounter, in every way. Intense anger, intense focus, intense love. So, loving a Scorpio can be a crazy roller coaster, and chances are, they're the conductor.

Their possessiveness and jealousy can be off-putting, but at the same time, having someone that values you THAT much is so enticing, it's hard not to forgive.

Their power is alluring and intimidating, so it's no surprise that you may be turning to this article for some tips and warnings.

All I can say is good luck, because they're as awesome as they are cray ... and I'm saying that as a Scorpio myself.


Pro: They’re intensely passionate

Let's just say they know how to show you their love.


Con: They take arguments to a whole new level.

The last thing you want is an angry Scorpio, but arguments happen, and they will make sure that you get stung, one way or another.


Pro: Sex sex sex.

They are literally the sex sign of the zodiac. *Mic drop*


Con: They want to take care of everything themselves.

When you love someone, you want to help them and take care of them. Scorpios make that very difficult for their partners, which can make them feel unneeded or even unwanted.


Pro: They’re always looking out for you

They're unshakably loyal, and they'll always have your back. That stinger is most harmful to the people that cross them or their lovers, so you'll know you're always covered.


Con: They’re possessive


They take love and intimacy very seriously. There is no room for anyone else in their heart, so they don't want to see any extra room for anyone else in yours either.

While it might seem kind of cute at times, it can actually be annoying and borderline crazy all the other times.


Pro: They're decisive


They don't play games, and they know what they want. They've always got their eyes on the prize, and they'll get it in the most efficient way possible.


Con: Human Lie Detector

You might not even want to try to lie to a Scorpio. Not even a little white one. For them, that's the worst thing you can do in a relationship.

No matter what, you're better off telling the truth because they can see through your BS and you will immediately regret everything. They're the type that will ask you a question they already know the answer to.


Pro: Their love is always 100% for you

You don't have to worry about any infidelity or wandering eyes here. When they love, it's so concentrated and exclusive, it can be overwhelming. But so so amazing.


Con: They're Paranoid


Scorpios don't trust easily, so paranoia is common. Sometimes it's warranted, sometimes it's not.

If you ever even meet a person named Becky with good hair, they will investigate the shit out of them and keep a constant eye on you while playing Beyonce's Lemonade album 24/7.


Pro: They keep you on your toes

Just when you think you’ve finally figured them out, they hit you with another twist. They always keep things exciting and interesting without even trying.


Con: It’s hard to get them to open up

Since Scorpios are very independent, secretive, and don't trust often, if something's up, good luck getting a peep out of them. It's like pulling teeth.


Pro: Intimacy is everything

Intimacy in all aspects consumes them when they're in love. You'll never have a deeper connection than what you'll have with a Scorpio. 


Con: They’ll leave you and won’t look back

If they find they don't want or need you anymore, whether it be because of a fight, betrayal, or not showing enough loyalty or respect, you're out. They put themselves above all else, so it's ride or die. They will not sacrifice their wellbeing for anyone, so when it ends, they'll leave you in the dust, and you'll just be somebody that they used to know.

And damn, will it hurt.
