Characteristics of a Scorpio man

The Scorpio man is one of the most private of the zodiac. He’s the one with the brooding eyes and air of mystery about him, the person you think you know, then you discover he’s heir to a vast empire. Oh, did he not tell you?

He’ll often act on his gut feeling, taking on challenges not because he’s carefully thought them through, but simply because he knows it’s the right thing to do. He’ll pay any consequences later. The Scorpio male doesn’t, however, compromise. In a relationship if there’s anyone making a concession, it’s you.

The Scorpio man in love

The Scorpio male will mesmerise and seduce you, and you won’t be able to help yourself. So just go with the flow and enjoy the ride, however bumpy it may get. In love, though, he can be very unpredictable. On a good day, the Scorpio will adore you. On a bad, his switch flicks to detest. 

Luckily, the mood swings don’t last long and you’ll be worshiped and placed back on your pedestal before you know it.

How to date a Scorpio man

Share a secret with him early on in a relationship. Reveal something about yourself that you haven’t told many others, maybe an ambition you have or a desire to travel somewhere. He’ll help make it happen.

Enjoy time alone with him too, making him feel like he’s one-of-a-kind (it’s probably true). Despite his mysterious ways, he wants a special connection, which can only happen when you’re comfortable and honest with one another.

How NOT to date a Scorpio man

Don’t put your mobile or iPad on the table when you’re on a date, keep it hidden in your bag. He demands your full attention, so don’t interrupt a conversation to respond to a text. And even if you’re excited being in his company, and not sure what to talk about next, don’t just ramble on about anything and everything. 

Perhaps read a newspaper before you head out and get him to comment on today’s big stories – so long as it’s got nothing to do with Katie Price.

The perfect date

Scorpio males are creatures of habit, so don’t take them out of their comfort zone. You may not want to invite a new date to a restaurant he’s been to a hundred times before, but that’s where he’ll feel most at ease. He’ll probably even order the same meal he always has. 

You can always ‘spice’ up the evening by popping in to a new bar or café afterwards. If things are going well and you have him transfixed, he won’t panic in unfamiliar surroundings.


Lined up, as the most compatible dating matches are Cancer, Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus and Virgo. Even Aries and Aquarius can get along if they put in the effort – and who wouldn’t for a Scorpio male? Everyone should get up close and personal with this star sign at some point in their lives.

Well, maybe not Libra and Gemini. You’ll certainly find plenty of reasons why you’d be happy with this match, but Scorpio himself will struggle with your flighty ways.
