They don’t like out-of-the-blue adventures and they don’t like uncalculated moves, be it a quick trip to the cinema or an out-of-the-blue lover.
When a Taurus is in his zone, he likes to focus on just that. He or she doesn’t want to change directions and just wants to do his thing and be left alone to do it. And because he is so focused, he hates listening to others. He hates being told what to do. Agreeing with another person’s advice can be slim for this sign.
2. They Can’t Trust Others Easily
Taurus-born individuals cannot open their hearts to trust others especially someone new. They are used to routine and living to a code that new people can be seen as intruders and therefore they cannot be trusted.
They always tend to have their guards up and they don’t like to tell others how they truly feel or what they think. Part of this is because they are concerned about what people will think of them because self-image is important and also because they feel that they need to know the person first really well before they can trust them. This may entail many, many years of friendship in order for that trust to pop up.
3. Taking Someone For Granted
Taurus partners can be lazy when it comes to celebrations and anniversaries. For Tauruses, regular home life and routine is more important than anything. Getting settled and comfortable is their prime concern so they may not put so much effort if they feel that they just want to get comfy. However, Taureans can be lavish too like buying presents, gifts, expensive wines because it is their aesthetic and lifestyle and not because they want to impress someone.

Beautiful things, luxury, and material possessions make a Taurus happy. They also have pretty high standards because they know they are beautiful. They may not want to date people who don’t fit their ideal image especially for the physical side. They may also not admit how they feel just because they are too ashamed or too high and mighty to do that. This may cause them to pitter-patter when it comes to saying whom they like. They can also choose partners or careers based on monetary merit not really because they love the person or the job.

she must learn to grow more and be happy in life.
