Relationships are challenging, particularly long-term relationships.
Whenever two people try to share their lives together, it is necessary to compromise and balance competing needs.
If you are asking yourself the question of how to get a Taurus man to miss you, or a man of any other sign, for that matter, it is a red flag that there is a problem in your relationship.
In the case of a Taurus man, however, the problem may be one-sided. He may not feel like there is a problem at all.
Indeed, he may be perfectly content. You, on the other hand, may be feeling ignored or taken advantage of.
In your frustration, you may be thinking about how to make a Taurus man miss you so that he will pay attention to you.
While this is understandable, efforts to force or manipulate him into noticing you will be temporary fixes at best, and at worst, could damage your relationship beyond repair.
In this article, we will help you to negotiate your needs with his so that you will both be happy and fulfilled.
We will also help you understand a Taurus man and how he thinks and acts in relationships.
3 Ways to Get a Taurus Man to Miss You
Because of the nature of a Taurus man and the challenges of being in a relationship with him, trying to manipulate him to get him to miss you is not the answer.
The important thing is to find a way to balance your needs with his.
If you are in his life, he wants to keep you in it, and he wants to be secure in what you will do and how you will act.
So, any change you make will cause him to miss you, or at least, miss what he was used to.
Yes, it is good for him to have his routine shaken up from time to time, but you will damage your relationship if you do so too severely or too often.
With this in mind, here are some things you can do to find happiness in your relationship with him.
1) Determine your needs
In order to get your needs met, it is important to know what they are.
This is particularly true with a Taurus man, in that you will need to take the initiative and are likely to face resistance.
Below are some questions you may want to think about:
- Are you an introvert or an extravert?
- How much change and variety do you need in your life?
- Do you prefer a calm and quiet existence or do you like a lot of passion and excitement?
- Do you get bored easily and if so, are you able to entertain yourself?
- How much attention and social contact do you need?
- How much spontaneity do you want and need?
When thinking through these questions, do not consider your Taurus man or what he is capable of giving you at this time.
At this stage, you are looking at your own needs and desires and what you want and need from a relationship in the abstract.
Also, in your self-reflection, avoid being judgmental of yourself or your Taurus man.
There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. We are all different. Your needs are just as valid and important as his.
2) Manage your expectations of him
Now, that you have assessed your own wants and needs, it is important to be realistic in how much you can expect from your Taurus man.
While Sun Sign descriptions are useful, they are by necessity generalizations. In truth, no one is only one sign.

With that in mind, your Taurus man may very well be more energetic and less sedentary than the one that I am describing in this article.
For this reason, it is important to think about your individual Taurus man and determine what he is able to give you.
There is a myth in the modern world that your partner is supposed to be the one to meet all of your needs, but this is unrealistic in most cases.
There is no point in expecting something from a partner that he cannot give. You may have to get some of your needs met elsewhere.
Your Taurus man most certainly wants you in his life, whether he shows you that or not.
He will try to please you to the best of his ability if he knows what you want and need. He will never stop being a Taurus man, though, no matter how much he tries.
3) Develop a routine
Even though your Taurus man is who he is, he can manage to give you much more in the way of attention, variety, and even excitement if there is an underlying routine.
Rather than making efforts to get a Taurus man to miss you, you are more likely to get what you want by negotiating with him directly to give it to you.
Having a set Date Night is a really useful practice with a Taurus man. During this Date Night, one of the rules could be that you have each other’s undivided attention.
If you need variety, you may want to have a “try something new” day on a regular basis.
If you are someone who wants and needs spontaneity, this may not be as satisfying as you would like, but it may need to be one of the compromises that you have to make.
Ignoring a Taurus man
As you are dealing with the frustration of trying to get your needs met, you may be tempted to ignore a Taurus man to get him to miss you. This will probably not get the results that you want.
A Taurus man wants someone around, but he does not want or need much overt attention. This is a quiet sign, and many Taurus men are introverts.
If you pay less attention to him, he may not notice or may even find it a relief. If it does bother him, it will only be because you have changed the routine.
For example, if he is used to you talking to him a lot, and you suddenly stop, it will bother him even if he is annoyed by constant chatter. This is because this is a change, and he does not like change.
So, rather than ignoring a Taurus man, a better approach is to change your routine somewhat.
Understand, however, that any change that you make will likely be met by complaints or resistance at first. This is not something to worry about or take personally.
In the mind of a Taurus man, any change, even good change, is difficult and scary.
Are Taurus men jealous?
Taurus men are extremely jealous. The motto of Taurus is, “I have,” and a Taurus man measures his life by his possessions. His possessions include all of his relationships.
This quiet and placid man can become a raging bull if he thinks that someone else is moving in on his partner.
Because of this, if you are thinking of how to get a Taurus man to miss you, you may be tempted to try to flirt with another man in his presence to make him jealous. This is a very bad idea.
He will usually be a stable and steady partner. Once he has formed a relationship with you, there is very little that you can do that will upset him enough to break up with you.
He will forgive and adjust to almost any fault or idiosyncrasy that you may have.
The only thing that he will not forgive is infidelity. So, yes, you will get his attention if you try to make him jealous, but you run a substantial risk that he may leave you.
Your only hope is to admit that you were trying to get his attention by making him jealous and beg his forgiveness, but it is by no means guaranteed that you will get it.
Now, if you are a person who enjoys flirting and likes a lot of male attention, you may not get enough from your Taurus man.
Because of this, you may be tempted to get it elsewhere. If this is the case, you will need reassure your Taurus man that he is the only one for you.
You also need to be careful to never let a flirtation go too far.
Being in a relationship with a Taurus man
With this sign, in almost every case, your real question is, how do you get him to give you the attention that you want and need.
With this in mind, let us look at the usual dynamics in a relationship with a Taurus man.
A Taurus man’s dream
Taurus is a quiet sign, with very simple wants and needs. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is the middle sign of Spring.
The middle signs of any season are Fixed, meaning that they want and need routine and dislike change.
If you are a gardener or even have a houseplant or two, you know that transplanting or repotting plants is a precarious business.
If not done carefully, the plant will die. A plant needs to stay in one place to grow roots. It is the same for a Taurus man.
As such, a Taurus man’s dream is to have a comfortable house, perhaps with land. He wants a partner who will be with him and who he can count on to be there.
A Taurus man does not like to expend any more energy than he has to, so if he has a partner who will take care of him and his house and his land, he will be very happy.
He wants good food and good sex, and if his partner can provide those things for him, even better.
He also wants a comfortable chair to relax on. If he has his way, he will take ownership of the remote control and watch the same shows over and over again.
He likes the familiar and is uncomfortable with anything new.
Challenge for a partner
If you are not a Taurus native yourself, it is very likely that you will find a Taurus’ dream rather dull.
Also, most people do want and need attention and appreciation, and few people like the feeling of being taken for granted. A Taurus man, however, wants someone that he can take for granted.
He wants to know when and how she will be available for him so that he can settle into a comfortable routine and does not have to fear change.
These issues create a natural tension for the partner of a Taurus man.
Also, the Taurus man’s ideal life is usually not very good for him either. Everyone, even a Taurus man, needs exercise and variety from time to time.
So, in a sense, the tension of having a partner with competing needs really does benefit him, whether he is aware of it or not.
So finding a balance between his desires and yours is not only good for you and for your relationship, but it is good for him as well.
