Scorpio Man Personality Traits

What is the first expression you gave when someone told you that he was a Scorpio? Whether you believe in astrology or not, you may already have preconceived notions about a Scorpio, especially a Scorpio male. Are weird, passionate, sexual and vindictive some of the words that come to your mind? I am sure you would have heard about these Scorpio male personality traits from either someone else or from the internet.

There are undoubtedly thousands of blogs and articles out there which talk about a Scorpio man’s personality and most of them give you a decent picture of a Scorpio male. However it probably won’t get better than to understand a Scorpio male personality from a Scorpio himself. So let us see what a Scorpio man is all about.

  • Mysterious and Charming

Every blog you may have read will talk about how mysterious a Scorpio male is. This is indeed true. A Scorpio man is probably the most mysterious of all the people in the zodiac other than his female counterpart. The reason for this is that he is very secretive. Added to that is a Scorpio’s famous (or infamous) all penetrating gaze that can make almost anyone feel naked. While a Scorpio male can read most people like an open book, he is one person you can never ever read completely. He is so deep that it may take a lifetime for you to understand him.

A Scorpio man is also sometimes referred to as the James Bond of the zodiac. This is because of the mysterious and confident aura he emits around him which draws the opposite sex to him.

  • Secretive

Talking about being secretive, Scorpio men are the ones who are most commonly accused of being highly secretive (at least I get it all the time from people around me). They do not open up easily to people around them since they don’t trust people easily. A Scorpio man may know you for a lifetime, but still won’t reveal all his secrets to you. Even the most socially active and talkative Scorpio man has his secrets and will never talk about it. He is willing to die for his secrets than revealing it to even his closest people. Giving up his secret is like taking out a part of his body.

  • Passionate

There is no other sign in the zodiac which can come close to a Scorpio male when it comes to being passionate. A Scorpio male is considered the most passionate and the best lover you can find. Unfortunately, most people limit their thoughts to sex and romance. A Scorpio male is passionate not only in the department of love, but in everything he does. If he is doing something he really loves, he will put his heart and soul into it which is immediately evident to a person. If you see someone talk very passionately about anything, he may probably be a Scorpio. He loves passionately and he hates passionately. There is no middle ground.

  • Tough yet soft

Most blogs you read mention this in a line. A Scorpio male has a very tough outer shell but is very soft inside. His emotions run very deep and he knows that. This is probably the reason why he puts up a tough facade in order to not get hurt. This tough, yet calm face is also the reason why people don’t easily approach him. This, coupled with his non-trusting nature is the reason why he has few friends in his inner circle. It is indeed very tough to get into his inner circle, but if you are lucky enough to make it there, he is one guy who is willing to sacrifice himself for you.

  • Emotional and Intelligent

Scorpios are often notorious to make decisions through their hearts. However, this is not true all the time. It is true that Scorpios are passionate and make decisions which appeal to their emotions. However, Scorpios are masters of both emotions and logic. As much as a Scorpio man tends to take an emotional decision, he is also very good at looking at the entire situation in a logical and analytical way, and if he sees it right, no one can stop him from taking that decision.

  • Wise and Mature

It is also said that Scorpios in general are wise beyond their age. This is true again. A Scorpio guy may not be a Math or economics Wiz, or a rocket scientist, but he is one of the most intelligent and wisest people you will find. You may compare a 25 year old Scorpio male’s wisdom and maturity to a 35 year old male of most other signs. It is difficult to understand why this is so. It is just that what most people have to learn through years of experience, he already knows.

  • Moody

Let me explain this. A Scorpio person is a deep thinker. When he is dealing with a challenge or facing issues, he tends to withdraw into his shell unlike others who voice their problems. Once he withdraws into his shell, he tries solving problems in his own way in a focused manner. He doesn't like anyone interrupting in any way when he is thinking deep, as he likes to be left alone. So, when someone tries to interfere his problem solving process, he tends to get agitated and irritated. When his "problem solving" cap is not on, he is generally a warm and a happy person. This frequent change in his behavior is generally perceived as his mood swings.

  • Ambitious

One of the personality traits of a Scorpio man is that he is highly ambitious. He may never tell you what his goals in life are, but he does have certain goals he wants to achieve at any cost. However, though Scorpios love to lead a good life surrounded by luxuries, the end goal necessarily need not be money oriented. A Scorpio is more oriented towards achieving something that gives him an emotional and more importantly, a spiritual satisfaction. Most Scorpios in general also have high standards about themselves and people around them. They demand high quality from themselves and people around them.

  • Powerful

A Scorpio easily attracts and is attracted to power. This does not necessarily mean that a Scorpio wants to be in the limelight. In fact, unlike certain other zodiac signs who like to be in the limelight while wielding power, a Scorpio man rarely craves to be at the forefront. A Scorpio man is ruled by Pluto, lord of the underworld. As such, he prefers to stay away from the limelight. He is one person who prefers to be at the back end of the stage while he pulls the strings.

  • Vindictive

This is one negative trait for which he is most famous for. But before describing it, here is a clarification. A Scorpio is a very warm and friendly person… as long as you do not cross him. He is willing to give his life for you if you prove your trustworthiness. However, never ever make a mistake of stepping on the wrong foot of a Scorpio man. Unlike his female counterpart who may forgive you for your foolishness of crossing her, a male Scorpio rarely forgives you and even if he does, he will never forget it. Some Scorpio men go to any extent to have their revenge. You may never be able to gain a Scorpio man's trust again in your lifetime. As the cliché goes, he can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

He is your best friend. He is your worst nightmare.
He is your best friend. He is your worst nightmare.

Few more things you may want to know

1) Scorpio men usually have a sarcastic and a caustic sense of humor. They also sometimes have a deep sense of humor most people cannot fathom.

2) A Scorpio man usually does not fall in love easily. This does not mean that he does not get attracted to beauty. But he is not a person who is superficial. To know more about a Scorpio man in love, read

3) Scorpio men are generally accused of being overbearing, having a short temper and being vindictive.

4) Scorpios are often seen as some of the most serious people in the zodiac.

5) A Scorpio guy rarely pretends and is very bad at telling a lie. He may tell you occasional white lies, but he can never pretend or fake. They also hate lies and pretenses given by others. So girls, please refrain from asking an honest opinion from a Scorpio man about your looks.

6) He is one of the most loyal persons you will get. He may flirt with other women, but he will always be loyal to one person.

7) Scorpios usually don’t like following rules laid out by someone else. They prefer following their own rules. They also love to bend and break rules to their liking. You may see them as the rebellious types.

8) Most Scorpios like orderliness and discipline in one form or the other.

9) Scorpio men are sometimes perceived as selfish.

10) A Scorpio man need not physically be attractive like Brad Pitt or George Clooney. However, his confidence and mysterious aura makes him very attractive to the opposite sex.

Best match for a Scorpio man

Most astrology blogs claim that the ideal mate for a Scorpio man is either a water sign such as Cancer and Pisces or an earth sign such as Capricorn or Virgo. However, I would refrain from saying that. Honestly speaking, a match can never be made from sun sign compatibility alone. For example, some of my best friends are Scorpios, Libras, Leos and Sagittarius. I have also seen Scorpios marry air or fire signs and living happily. If you need to do a compatibility check, it needs to be done at a whole different level. It ultimately also depends upon the environment in which a person is brought up, and his/her belief and value systems among so many other things.

So these are the most common Scorpio male personality traits. Having said that, each person is unique in his/her own way. A sun sign can only give you the strong traits of a person and not the entire personality. Hope this little (or rather long) article helps you in understanding a Scorpio man better. Now you don’t have a reason to call him weird. Is a Scorpio woman similar to her male counterpart? Well… To be honest, both are entirely different species. But yes, both are similar in many ways too.

PS: You may see some evolved Scorpios who are nice and warm, and you may also see downright vengeful and nasty Scorpios. To understand these different types, you can also read my hub

Hi I am 28 , single, male Scorpio with Mars. When I was 15 I was sexually abused by one aunt, after that I never allowed any women to come near me, nor I indulge or take any steps to meet someone. I do attract a lot of women, its everyday job for me to ignore there stares, gestures , all kinds of signals, its not a big deal for me but I don't know why I am this way, every women who came or tried to came near me with intention of relationship or getting intimate with me I had to kind of keep her away from me, I have been doing this from past 13 years. I am virgin and celibate.I am not gay , I am straight. I do talk with females and I do have some female friends, but its like there is a kind of invisible line/boundary which if any female crosses to come near me or tries to get within "my circle/range", I have to cut her off immediately from my life and this includes first limiting all communication of any sort , then gradually building up to ignore that women, no eye contacts etc . I haven't told about my childhood abuse to anyone because I already know nobody ever gonna believe me, even my mother refused to believe me when I told her, I tried taking my life also, but don't know why I have to fail, I have serious mood swings, I get suicidal thoughts also but with the help of Youtube videos I tried finding my passion and things I love , I found I like gym and swimming and I am regular at both and it makes me Happy. I don't have any plans of marriage /relationship, I am earning good and I just want to direct all my energy in creating something out of me. People think I have too much ego or I am too self centered because I am master in ignoring people and playing mind games and getting myself out of their mind even if they don't want to.I don't want to do this, I want to give love and wanted to be loved by someone but its like I have this thought deeply in my head that I can't allow myself and let my guard down no matter what. I love god and everyday I pray on my knees 2 times being thankful for everything that he has given, asking for strength to keep me strong keep me away from any relationship so that I don't hurt anyone's emotions.I don't know why I am this way and have to wear the 'tough-look' mask all time to protect myself....

Very nicely done, from an Astrologer of 40+ years. I like that you added Scorpios have passion about anything they do, not just sex. And they can be the most gentle with people who need it the most.

Very rightly said.. Being a Scorpio, I never felt attracted to either Cancer or Pisces. I have been mostly attracted to Scorpios or Virgos.. It is always more than just a sun sign..

I am visiting this hub for the third time, of course with long intervals.

It is a wonder that so many people are worried about their birth sign alone. As i have already pointed out in my previous comment, though birth-sign tells some important things, we cannot judge a person's nature on that basis alone. In my opinion, Scorpio and cancer won't make a good match. Scorpios have irritable temperament,may be that is just polished because of their education, high society environment etc. But, it is better to remember that scorpios go more by emotions than by reasoning.

Hey guys I really need an advice.....I m in love with a scorpion man since 5 months and now I m feeling like he is taking little bit interest in me....though till nw it was one sided...... I did many things wrong in my past life.....I want to share this with the man I m in love past life was like hell.....will this affect our friendship...should I tell him everything......will my speaking up the truth affect the way he started feeling fr me....

My past was very bad....I am guilty n ashamed of it which made me less talkative....kind of introvert or shy person who doesn't speak much with any1.....

This guy askd me to become open minded n extrovert.....BT the things I have in mind or something stops me to explore myself to the me guys...I need an advice......I want to share this with him bt I m ashamed of what all I did...I knw this will need a lot of courage bt I DNT want to loose this man at any situation.....

Hello everyone....reading this post actually made me feel relaxed ...which i really needed since am currently attracted to a SCORPIO guy.

A little about a typical Pisces gal....feminine, romantic n a bit confused...i have never been in love and am a bit choosy when it comes to guys.

Me and my friend recently joined a gym where i met my SCORPIO man. He was really gud to look at and stood apart from the crowd.He and i are from different college I was friend with the gym instructor who gave me information about the scorpio.My friend and the instructor planned to get me together with him and after a lot of tricks and the scorpio guy started texting( he was already aware of the fact that i was attracted to him ).

We chatted all night long...he was sweet , decent, caring, fun and intelligent.

but the weird thing was that he use to text me only at night, i indirectly asked him about this and he said that he would get distracted during classes from all the texting . I did feel weird about this but chosse to ignore it.

we had been chatting for about one week when one early morning he came over to my place with breakfast(yummy),just to prove me that he was good cook. It was a very sweet gesture.

the next week was my bday and he surprised me by coming over to my place with flowers and cakes and balloones. I was so impreressed by it and thought that maybe he is also attracted to me.

Next day we again chatted till late at night and he said that we will be busy for the week .because of his college exams .and now all for about 5 days i have not heard from him. He does not even come to gym .

Am really confused by his hot/cold behaviour. His actions says he likes me, but his word are as if he is talking to some random friend.

And is he actually so busy that he cannot even send one small text.

I don't wanna have a heart-break by being serious about him. he seems like a good guy but if he is not interested in me then he should stop giving so confusing signals.

People with this sign Scorpio,especially women have some irritating nature,if Mars is stronger. They should not be get into quarrel with. They are more sentimental than reason some.

I am a pisces and i recently meet 3 months ago now a scorpio... We clicked right away. We both said we were not looking for nothing, but we caught each other eye and started talking on Facebook. We finally decied to meet up together a few weeks later. Since that moment we spent all of our open time together. He did admit to me right away that he had some loose ends he needed to fix before moving forward with me. I expected that and did at that time have a problem with it. A few weeks went by things have been going great. Well one night we were hanging out and he had asked me off the wall question that i felt uncomfortable with, so i said a little white lie to him. About a week later, i had admit to him i lied to him about that subject, i don't ever lie and i wanted to come clean.... Since than he has held that above my head, even though he says he doesn't. We have went away on a small get away together and we still hang on our days off. about 2 month have gone by and i had asked him if this was leading into a realationship. He had said to me, i don't know if i can trust you and there for i don't not know if I want to be with you because i do not know if I can trust you any more.....

I had to comment on your hub because my first love was a Scorpio;That man put me through a mental game that I didn't know how to take him and after I broke it off which took all my will power and being at the ripe age of sixteen when I first met him and no matter how hard I fought the feelings for him;I fell madly in love with him and after all this time he haunts me.I think it is because of his deep mentality.I can relate to your hub because that pinpoints him.I am a Pisces soyou can imagine what went through my mind.

A good article with study. I wish to add something to this.

A Scorpio or,Vrischika as it is called in Indian astrology, is owned by planet Mars or Kuja. While discussing about the characteristics of persons with this sign, we must see whether they are born during day or night. If they are born during day time, then, Characteristics explained above will be weaker because,Mars is stronger during night and weaker during the day.At the same time, we should also see where the Mars is,in the horoscope.If he is in enemy's house,then, he becomes further weaker.

As said in the article above, we can not decide on the basis of birth sign alone, even though it is important. We have to see the strengths and weaknesses of different planets, their positioning, dristi or mutual influence,etc. This is my experience in practicing astrology for past 16 years.

Scorpio and Cancer are perfect for each other generally speaking. As a Scorpio myself my advice would be not to worry so much. Don't let your Cancer emotions get too down. I find your BF actions to be typical. We Scorpios don't like telling the world about our affairs. In fact I don't even have Facebook or anything else like that for precisely that reason. What I do with my girl is just between us. We don't need to tell everyone; just the one we love. It makes us feel more secure to NOT give out details to other people who we are not intimate with. It's ok. Just understand that this is how Scopios are. Don't try to read something into the situation that is not real. We are different that you are. Just accept that and be grateful for your relationship if it makes you happy.

Good luck my dear Cancer. You truly are ideal for each other in many ways. Relax and enjoy the ride.

hi there..i like your article. Actually i have a bf online for almost 2 months. He is a scorpio too. You right, he is so secretative person that makes me feel he's just playing with me. I am a cancer girl, most cancer girl are sweet and love to be cuddle, and loud for their feelings and i am like that. You know what my bf tells me little about himself and his family that's all.. and rest of our talk is more on intimate thing. Well, I love him sooo much, but there are times that i have doubt in him coz he don't want to update our status online.. he don't want me to show something sweet notes on his wall in fb..he said he want his life privacy.. that he told me..i cry every time.. coz i am thingking he's hidding something to me..and he really don't love me but when i confront him he just said.. like this.. like that..etc..I ask him if he still want me and he said yes. You know what i can't loose him too.. im a crazy girl who fell in love with damn crazy!.. I try to look for other guys..but my heart, my head and my body refuses... they still want him for me...when i say i love you to him i did not expect sometimes that he response on it. and im happy when he respons without pushing i little bit an idea about my bf.. hope i can still. holding on to him..

I've always been fascinated by astrology because people so often 'fit' their signs. I've not known much about Scorpios, however, and appreciated learning about their traits.

maramerce 3 years ago from United States

I'm a Cancer, but I'm a lot like a Scorpio because of other traits I possess beyond my zodiac sign. I find that I do not do well romantically with Scorpios because we both want to be in charge in some capacity. I was secretly and passionately in love with a Scorpio for two years when I was a teenager. It never materialized into more than just a really intense, private friendship. We never expressed even the friendship to one another, but simply experienced it. He was the first guy I felt really physically compelled toward and also just magnetically drawn to. I used to write poetry for him. I would bring it to class and show it to him. He was very passionate about reading my work which I loved about him. I'm the kind of person who knows everyone's secrets even if they don't tell them. That's why secretive people are attracted to me. They sense that I know something about them that other people don't understand. And I do. I just don't like a lot of conflict in my intimate relationship so I tend to fall in love with men who are the opposite of Scorpio and of myself, more easygoing, open types who can handle my own moodiness and who aren't afraid to profess their love for me endlessly.

Fishy Phoenix 3 years ago

Ahh. Sagittarius.. I always get along with Sag girls and boys. We Scorps like your positive and somewhat carefree attitude.

The answer below is somewhat true. To us Scorpios life is about personal interactions and experience. Rules that most people follow rarely even occur to us. We do what we want - when we want. The true rebel.

That said, if we like you then that's it. If you are in a bad relationship then to us that means 'no relationship'. Just don't bring drama with you.

Also, you'll have to figure out what the intentions and goals are. Sometimes we just want to have fun with a girl and have no labels on that experience. It does not mean a one-night-stand and also doesn't necessarily mean it's the beginning of a relationship.

That may be hard to understand but we are ALL about the NOW. Labels and rules are for others.

We are totally honest and don't really play games. It's best if you just ask honestly what's going on and we will tell you. Just be sure your asking is from the heart and not defensive or accusatory.

Hi. I've been dating a scorp male for 3 months. We met at work (he was my manager) and kind of hit it off. The ride hasn't been all roses and tulips tho. 1st of all he lied and said he was single. I had a feeling that he was hiding sonething from me due to my experience with past relationships. One day I was at his house and noticed something that wasn't there before and started looking thru everything else. I was devastated by what I found, a house full of women's belongings. He said that it was for his sister but of course I wasn't buying the story. He went as far as taking me to his sister's place (who wasn't home at the time but her boyfriend was) which proved nothing to me. I continued to see him anyway because I had fell in love by this point. I just pretended to go along with all the bs he was saying....then he lft his laptop over here and I have his password...I looked at the pics on there and I tld him I had done so. I tld him that it didn't matter what I saw on there because if he valued what we have/trying to build, he had a week to get all women's clothing, jewelry, cats, pictures and anything else out of his house and that I would be sleeping over regularly (I always wanted to sleep at my place). He said ok it wouldn't be a problem. A couple of weeks after that, he broke his lease and moved in with me. Now fast forward to today, we have been living together just under a month. During this time he has slept out once and done a couple of other questionable thing. I told him that sleeping out WILL NOT be tolerated. One day when I couldn't take it anymore, I told him we needed to talk. I started off by telling him that the questions I was about to ask him, I pretty much already knew the answer (i'm a sag, it doesn't take me long to put two and two together) and that if he continued to lie, we can't go any further. I started off by asking him why he lied about being single and his living situation at the time. He came clean, finally. He said he knew things were gonna be changing soon so he just didn't say anything. He said he was cheating because he caught her cheating and he stayed with her even though he had no intentions of being with her (like he was playing catch back). Due to the dishonesty on his part I don't fully trust him even though he comes home to me every night. I asked him how can I trust that he won't do me the same thing....he just said that I can trust it. He said he choose me because of all the women he fooled around with, I was the only one who talked about stability (marriage/family/in a traditional sense). He said that he knows he has to work his way up to getting me to trust him 100% and that he understood how I felt. He is even starting a new job on the 15th of this month so he doesn't have to work nights/late nights. He is trying to put my mind at ease but I still feel weird. I know he is not sticking around for sex because we've had plenty of that and he didn't need a place to stay because he is financially stable and he pays all the bills here because I don't work right now (he manipulated my work situation so that I would not want to return after my suspension). So, if he didn't want me, he could have disappeared after I stopped working there. I guess my question is now that everything has come to the surface can I now take him seriously? I still feel weird because I don't trust him fully. I think he was testing me when he told me he was considering moving out to be closer to his new job because today when I said I was ready to go back to work he said with no hesitation that he doesn't want me to feel like I have to go back to work out of fear that this won't last because he isn't going anywhere. Is he playing mind games or is he really in this for the long haul? Everything is happening so fast but feels like its been going on for years. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

Hate to break it to you Saggirl,

but I believe your hesitation was a sign to your scorpio man that he should move on. Us scorpio men want a woman willing to throw caution to the wind for us. We want a dangerous woman because we live life dangerously. The fact that your hesitated was more than likely a failure in his eyes, and if he did contact you I would suggest that you step lightly, as he may be an unevolved scorpio and looking for nothing more from you than some physical intimacy. I would say move on. Move on, and just find happiness beyond a relationship; if you do that, a scorpio will find you soon enough, haha!

I'm confused...

Meet a Scorpio at work about 2 mths and then left. I gave him my number & could never stop thinking of him. I felt possessed like a spell no idea what happened to me until I started researching the sign. I'm in a troubled relationship which he was not aware of. He invited me out & I asked him if he was looking to make a new friend. He said he didn't expect what happened our connection was so strong & we kissed he told me he liked me before & asked about me but i had a boyfriend and that he also thought about me.I did feel guilty not for kissing but because of my current "troubled living together relationship". He told me not to feel bad. I saw him again just as friends didn't kiss & he acted like a gentleman. He called me the next day out of the blue & wanted me to come over and I took long so he got annoyed keep calling & stated I was taking to long. When I arrived he grabbed me said I looked so hot & starting kissing me & it was intense. We did not sleep together he called me out on my "guilty emotions" so we just played around. I got dressed and he seemed annoyed that I was leaving him. Almost like reversed roles the guy usually leaves after the fun...anyway we texted back and forth a few times no signs of him showing any interest even after I let him know how im so attracted to him etc.. I asked him when I could see him again & he said we will do something over the wknd. I never heard back he fell of the face of the earth. I texted him that I ended my relationship & wanted to see him. No response! I'm torned!

Lshannah: Let him contact you. It is his mistake anyway. So, don't talk to him unless he calls back.. If you want to play with him a bit, don't bother replying to his texts or calls a couple of times ;)

Lshannah 3 years ago

Hmm, well he apologized for hurting me, after I've said I couldn't imagine that he can be so mean. What should I do now? I haven't tried to contact him, because I think the ball is in his court..

Lshannah: It could very well be a test to see how you react to what he says. A minor possibility that he may be holding something against you.

Lshannah 3 years ago

Thanks for the quick response! Would a Scorpio go as far as saying he's dating someone else? I'm wondering if it's some sort of test, because he has said it when I'm called him out on ignoring me. He got really defensive and from the past (when he became jealous due to a miscommunication) I've learned when something like that happened before it was just a stupid test.

pisceslove : It is really a bit complicated. I think it is time for straight talk between you two (or three). It is best to understand where he stands. As much as you have feelings for him, you need to be absolutely clear where you both stand when it comes to you two. Then take a step.

jennifer: Jennifer, I am a bit in a moral dilemma. I know I am no one to comment on the relationship you have, but are you sure you want to continue that?

To start with, ask him to be open about what he wants. I think confrontation is the best way. You wouldn't want to ruin your life if someone is just looking at playing around..

I NEED HELP...I just can't figure out my scorpio friend/lover. Our story is a little long so I'll try to give you the gist of it. I met my scorpio friend when I was getting out of a rough relations with my scorpio boyfriend ( I believe I will marry a scorpio because I have always attracted them...I could be in a dark room and they find me.I read that Pisces is the best match for scorpios so maybe that's why they always sniff me out)...Any way back to the main point...for the life of me i really can't tell what this man truly feels for me. When we became friends he was just what I needed to soothe the wounds caused by my scorpio ex-boyfriend (scorpio ex boyfriend had issues but I see him turning into the eagle that I know he can and will be....Others can't see it but I can....Its the whole pisces psychic be honest since he has had his daughter he really seem to be a changed man....for the life of me I don't understand why he keeps coming round I thought once scorpios are DONE they are DONE.....the other day my mom came right out and ask him the same thing and she also asked him right in front of me If he still loves me and I heard his voice break when he said he still loves me..awe well that's another story for another day...) Once AGAIN...back to the issue at hand...At the time we became friends he was also in a difficult relationship with his baby we were good for each other (lots of laugh, lots of convo...great time just chilling in silence)....somehow we end up crossing the friendship line...well not somehow...He hugged me on day and my knees got weak....then i kissed him and before I knew it our chill out Sundays became our sexing first it was all well and good till I started falling hard and fast for him. He was in a difficult spot because I wanted to be taken out and be out in public as lovers and not just friends....even though I knew that couldn't happen....anyway my jealousy became stronger and stronger...and my tantrums got stronger as well (being an older scorpio my breakdowns never moved him....or stopped him from coming round to spend time with me, even when i shunned him..he would still come....sometimes he would be in one part of the house and I in the next...he didn't care he just wanted to be where I was....this only made me loved him more and wanted him for myself.....After months of bad treatment he stopped coming....and calling (well I changed my number) forward two yrs later...after a wonderful relationship with an amazing older man (sagitarius)....who passed away...I saw my scorpio friend/lover again. I was too shocked to hear that he and his baby mom had called it quits ...I was even more shocked to find out that he live a stone throw away from me. After my wonderful old man passed away I went through a serious case of depression and once again my scorpio friend/lover was there to help me through it (its as if he is my guardian angel or something).....When we met up again he opened up to me and said that I broke his heart into pieces when I cut him off in the past...and that he loved more than I could have known....(anyway this story was supposed to be short but its turning into a novel....LOL)...Back to what I was saying...He and I became friends again...he even tried to take me out couple times but I refused because of being depressed........Then we started having sex again, which reallllly helped with my depression..LOL....The thing is when we became reaccqainted he was getting to know this other girl.....who I think wouldn't be in the picture now If I would have shown him some interest...(my disclaimer is that I was depressed).....Anyway he went through a rough spot...his car got stolen and his business was apparently she used to help him out...the thing is I used to always go by his apartment for my "THERAPY" .....LOL...or to just chill with him and I never see any sign of the girl there but One evening he asked me for a ride from work and she pulled up the same time as us...after that when I went to his house her clothes were there ....I asked him so the two of you are getting really serious...he said it wasn't the case she had done her laundry and had ''FORGOTTEN" a few pieces....PLEASE...(why are men so naïve).....Once again he asked me for a ride...she came there while we were outside talking, apparently she was angry because she blew her horn and speed off.....He was upset because he felt her actions was disrespectful......anyway I started to notice that when I would pass his place on my way home that her car would always be there...come to find out that she decided to give him her car to drive...and one morning on my way to work I saw her coming out of his I said to myself (she is sleeping over now..this is getting serious)....I spoke to him about it because my feelings started to develop again......I asked him if he has committed to a relationship with her and he said no....I sort of believed that because I know he was kinda traumatized from the whole seven yrs failed baby mama drama....and to be honest he is not fully over his baby mom because while he was a shoulder to cry on ...I was a listening ear..whenever she would come up in conversations ...(which was I know he is still dealing with that)....a couple of months ago....I was there just hanging with him and his daughter when the girl came there...and get this OPEN HIS DOOR WITH A KEY....She was shocked to see me and I to see her because I KNOW was obvious that she was upset but she didn't argue or anything but while talking to her I could sense that she was angry and hurt.. I didn't leave right away....he and I continued laughing and talking while she sat in the corner stewing... couple days later I said to him I don't know you to lie..why didn't you just tell me that you had committed to a relationship with her.......(THIS IS WHERE I NEED SOME ADVICE)....He said that they are not in a relationship because he told her from the beginning that he only wanted friendship because he was still dealing with his breakup. I told him that once you give a woman a key to your place that says you're in a relationship......his reply was that the landlord was suppose to cut an extra key to keep in case he was ever locked out but never got around to it and after he got locked out he cut a key and gave her the extra one to me that seems like a bull shit story....I asked him what went down after I left he didn't want to divulge that information...( to be honest that's a trait that I love about him)....the only thing he said was that he told her that he and I have been friends for a long time and no one will come between our friendship.......Lately my feelings have gotten strong and I am starting to be jealous again I am be'n so ridiculous to the point where he is getting angry at me ...something he never used to do (but I don't understand) ....The other day My car was down and I needed to do my laundry so I told him I was coming by he said ok, when I was two step from his place I saw her car parked there so I called him to say that I didn't know he had company and If I should come back and he said no...when I arrive it was clear that she was upset that I was there...after about two mins she said she was leav' he asked if she wasn't gonna cook some soup that she was preparing to cook before I came over...she changed her mind and cooked the soup...then I watched her straighten up and fold his I said to myself seem like she's trying to be wife before a ring is placed on her finger......then she serve him his food.....I laughed to myself because she caters to him but when I come there he caters to me....I mean you should see how he behaves....If I come over and say I hungry or thirsty he drops what he's doing to take care of me....and that type of behavior only maks me love him more...I mean he will even wash my clothes while I'm there watching tv...I just don't get it...I told him how I felt...I also told him that we should distant from each other because I'm only becoming more and more jealous which is gonna ruin or frienship...HELP!!!!

Hi Karthik,

I enjoyed reading this. I've been in love with a Scorpio for 11years. He is in a relationship, has a child and is my husband's friend. We flirt sometimes, I guess it's flirting. He holds me in his arms like we are lovers, his face burried in my neck. I kiss him in his neck. He blows me kisses, stares at me, looks right through me. He kissed me on the mouth once, but when my husband confronted him he denied it. I hated him after that and we weren't really getting along after that for years, but since a few months we are best buddies again. We chat and email and he always signs' with love'. We are just too close for normal friends, or rather too touchy feely. His girl is jealous so this happens when she is not around. I'm unsure now if I should talk to him about my feelings, it may ruin everything but it's killing me. He says that he loves her, but sometimes during our deep conversations, he confides in me and things aren't 100%. How do I know that he's not just being a friend or being a player? I've been thinking about this all the time and when we don't speak or I don't see him I feel so empty. But if I tell him how I feel I ruin everything and he may reject me. Sometimes I get the feeling that he knows. It's like we were at a party, pretty close, almost kissinh and touching again, and the next morning he can be distant almost, and I wonder if I imagined everything. What I want is to be open, so I can go on with my life and we both know that this isn't normal, even if he doesn't love me back. But where do I begin?

Hey, Karthik. Thanks for the response. Well, is that gonna be my curse? But believe it or not I like that feeling though. 'Cause my cousins reflects a wondering facial gesture why their sons and daughters are reacting that way to me. They are looking so perplexed 'cause their children cries when I'm looking at them even when I project a smile. The older ones are hiding behind their mother's back looking very scared. I like it when I see confused faces. Figuring out what is the problem but can not really come up with any answer. :)

scorpioman: I can understand that Joel. Unfortunately, most of us Scorpios have that intimidating appearance even if we are genuinely smiling. I think sometimes our energy becomes overbearing..

The traits of a scorpio man is similar to that of a person with an INTJ personality type. I am a scorpio man, but I was born in a cusp of because my birthday is on the 21st day of November. I also have an INTJ personality and my Chinese Zodiac is Ox.

I'm a pretty serious guy. I believe I am. It's very difficult to have these kind of traits on my back 'cause a lot of people are intimidated at me. They look down when I look at them. My infant nephews ages 3 to 5 years old cries out loud and shivers when I look at them even if I am smiling. Why? I don't look like a monster either or some average Joe as a matter of fact. But why are they crying?

Yolena: Scorpios always hide their true emotions. Some times it is natural (we usually don't express our emotions openly). Sometimes we just hide it so that we don't appear vulnerable. But nonetheless, we will have strong emotions. As long as he loves you, that is fine :)

Hi I'm a Gemini dealing with a Scorpio male and I really love him but sometimes I find myself getting really frustrated with him because I cannot figure him out he tells me he loves me but sometimes it seems like his emotions are somewhat with drawn as if he is trying to protect himself from me while I on the other hand I'm very open with my emotions,what do I do? I just don't understand him.

Hi. Since you yourself are a Scorpio I hope you'll help me fighure this out...I'm a Scorpio girl and I really like a Scorpio guy, it's definitely not an infatuation, it's been more than four years and my feelings have grown stronger ever since. I have told him about my feelings twice, the first time he said that we need to know each other(we were acquaintances then) and around six months after that I again told him I like him. I haven't got an answer still(it's been two years). We had just stopped talking for some months(both our Scorpio mood swings maybe) and recently he began talking to me again, we don't get to see much of each other but out chats continue for hours though sometimes I feel he doesn't want to talk but we both give each other the 'hypnotic Scorpio gaze' very frequently. What's on his mind?

karthikkash profile image

karthikkash 3 years ago from India Author

True Sagi119 : I can understand your feelings and I can empathize with it. There are two things a Scorpio will do anything for.

1) His ambitions

2) His love

Trust me, for most Scorpios (of course, I am not talking about the insect types. I am talking about the regular Scorpios you and I come across), these are two things which are always on the top of the list.

However, it can be sometime unfortunate that ambitions gain the upper hand and love takes a back seat. One needs to understand that Scorpio's ambitions are something that are pursued till they are achieved, and they always have a well thought out reason (whether right or wrong reason is a different matter). And when those things happen, it feels that the other person involved has been betrayed. Something not easy to deal with, but has to be dealt with.

True Sagi119 3 years ago cut an even longer story short (well as short as I can) ha!

I relentlessly pursued Mr Scorp. I was in awe of him, the 'idea' of him (not knowing him relationship-wise at this stage). Oh and btw I'd known him for years prior to this but had fell out of touch. Initially he was hot and cold (mainly cold). I was losing my mind over him. All the while he had NO clue whatsoever of the effect of his behaviour was having on me. He continued to dangle the proverbial carrot and I was reeled in. Hypnotised some would even say (well my judging friends anyway).

Almost a year went on and we started to make real progress (I thought). He told me he loved me, I told him too. I was crazy about him &he knew it. I supported him when he was down, was always there for him at the drop of a hat. I made him the centre of my universe, cause of how much I genuinely cared for him. Any other man had NO chance in hell with me. I only had eyes for him!

I really opened up to him about who I really was as a person, my intentions, my everything (well almost, ha). He made me feel so loved every time I was with him sexually and otherwise. He made me feel amazing, beautiful and sexy.

He had many issues, a few of them; concerning his baby mom and I know childhood issues which he's not ready to accept yet nor get help for. His bad experiences with former girlfriends emotionally messed him up. I was patient with him, more than I would have accepted off any other previous bf's.

My Scorp had many ambitious goals and the talent to go with it but he never had any drive or motivation. I made him feel like he could do anything, achieve everything. I made a conscious effort not to patronise him or cut him with my bluntness. I LOVED him (still do)

I slowly started noticing a pattern in his behaviour. How I wasn't top of his list. I wasn't a priority in his life. It hurt, bad! I noticed how he only ever made a real effort with me if and when he needed something, wanted some words of encouragement, money, a ride to his homies.

I made him aware of how I felt and done nothing to change even though he said he would. I didn't push him. I didn't force it on him. I distanced myself a little, he fixed his ways (for a temporary period). Over the holidays he became distant for no apparent reason. Stopped answering my calls, responding to my messages and when I asked him what's up he made excuses. He constantly made excuses!

I cut him loose. I had to! I still love him but I cannot respect somebody who didn't respect me and appreciate all I had to offer. He took me for granted. Now I'm left wondering if his love was ever real or did he just use me(?) Maybe he believes I'm playing a game, telling him we're through when we're not, who knows! But I'm done with him. For good.

He sent me a very touching but somewhat manipulative email (I won't go into detail) saying how much he loved me and appreciated everything I'd done for him and how I was the one etc etc......

One of the main things I'm grateful for is the lesson he taught me in the form of a Scorpio. I'm also grateful for coming to the realization of how intense my feelings can be. I had no idea how intensely I could feel for another. It's a shame it's ended like this but I will not and cannot accept anything less than my own worth.

bleedingscorpio: Well.. You already know you are in deep sh*t now. Once you hurt a Scorpio guy deeply, it is extremely difficult to get him back to how it was before that. I wish I could have put it in a milder way. I am not saying you did any mistake. In fact, you haven't done any mistake.

The only problem is that we Scorpio men are extremely sensitive inside. A slight insult or anything of that sort, we take it very deeply, even if it is our mistake. When we are in that situation, we become blind to other's opinions. What we do is right for us. That is when we become vengeful, even if we loved that person extremely. Unfortunately, that is one of our negative traits.

As off now, I think only time will heal your situation. I know, being a Scorpio yourself, it will hurt you very deep. But you will have to accept it. I am not saying it is over yet, but you just have to accept that whatever happened, it happened.

Wow, thank you for this. I am a libra woman who has fallen in live with a Scorpio man who is ten years younger than I. He has no idea. But when I met him, I thought that he was my age. He is so mature and wise and intelligent. He's everything I've always wanted in a man, but I seem to be roadblocked: he has completely taken me out of myself-I am not the same. Normally I am not aggressive and I never ask guys out, but when I am around him I be one very aggressive and I did ask him out. He said yes, but then he started sending mixed signals. This article is very helpful. I kept hearing that libras and scorpios are not meant for marriage, but I truly believe that he'd the one.

PrinceXandre 4 years ago

Most of the traits mentioned in the article are true to me. There are some traits that do not match 100% but I possess part of them. The trait I want least is being possessive and jealous because it really creates a war between me and my partner especially if my partner cannot understand what I am jealous of. I have few friends but majority of them are "real."

Secretive - in a way. Yeah, even if I open my life story to my "closest friend," there would always be secrets that I will never mention. I think this is also true with other zodiac.

Passionate - very true to me. You can see in my work if I did it with a heart or merely for compliance. My level of standard on my work is not on the standard being imposed by other people, but on my own standard. People tend to call me perfectionist, but that is me. I don't want to sacrifice the quality of my work for other people's satisfaction. I can only say my work is almost perfect if I am satisfied with it.

Well, though my life is not dependent on the zodiac, I am very thankful to this article about Scorpio because I was able to understand myself more deeply.

thanks a lot Angel :) As they say, we are the most misunderstood zodiac sign. Added to that, there are some of our traits which do get on other's nerves. I keep geeting comments by women about their Scorpio guys on my other hub. And it is always that they can't understand their Scorpio men. Thankfully, it has taken me time to understand myself and start walking on the evolved path.

And, it is nice to know that you are married to a Libran. Life must be interesting, when it comes to the clash of the strong traits (such as your decisiveness vs her indecisiveness :) ). True that compatibility cannot be seen only through sun signs. I recently heard about a Scorpio-Leo couple who are living very happily with their two kids. Also my love interest herself is a Scorpio and we match up perfectly when I compared our compatibility chart.

Angel 4 years ago

To add to my previous comment.. I also want to thank you for clearing up the compatibility signs for me as I am married to a Libra (Air sign) and have doubted other websites who claim that Libra is the most least compatible to Scorpio and I agree, there are so many other factors that play into a relationship that earth and water signs aren't always the answer.

Angel 4 years ago

I really admire this post as I myself am a Scorpio and I wish those that don't understand me would read this as it corrects some of the over exaggerated traits that other websites display. I have read countless scorpio websites and articles and this sums it up exactly how I would like it to be. Thanks for helping me in my journey of understanding myself and my actions as I feel I am the more evolved Scorpio and this brings more confidence in my life.

In a relationship with a scorpio for the last three years. He is mature, very wise, intelligent, caring and loving, full of humor, courageous, bold. At the beginning of the relationship he warned me he was sensitive. Luckily am gentle by nature. I know he can be sarcastic but has been gentle with me.

I wouldn't trade him for anything!

rain: Here is what I can tell you about astrology.. It is good to believe in astrology to a certain point. Yes, it is good to know the strengths and weaknesses of a person through astrology. But what the person does after knowing these traits is purely left to them. As far as I know, a relationship shouldn't be purely based on astrological compatibility. It takes a lot more than that for two people to be together. It takes a lot of understanding between the two as well as little changes and compromises to have a successful relationship.

Did you know that Taurus-Scorpio can actually be a wonderful match if two right people are involved?

rain 4 years ago

Whenever i read about scorpio it makes me depressed, astrology says wonderful things about taurus and scorpio being in a relationship but i have had nothing but grief from them, i thought as a taurus perhaps i could keep them happy but it's just impossible to keep them happy.

Screw true love i'm going to do everything in my power to put life in my favour and dating a scorpio is not something i care about anymore cause they'll never be happy, satisfied and they are like James Bond they are so full of themselves and ungrateful of ''The world is not enough".

Hi everyone, I have come here looking for some answers and I would love some feed back.

I met a scorpio man 3 years ago and we hit it off instantly. The conection was crazy and I know we both felt it. We never had sex but the kisses were very hot. We decided this wasn't the time for us because I was married but very unhappy.He told me if ever I left my husband to call him. (I was so upset I cried for days)

fast forward 2 years~

I was driving down the street and there he was , walking all alone. So, seeing as I was in the process of leaving my husband, I sent him a text. 'Hey handsome, hope things are well.' he responded with 'hey gorgeous, things are great. How have you been?' anyway, meet later that week. And again, It was HOT. We ended up having sex and omg, this guy is amazing.(not just in bed) funny everything I'm reading on here is so accurate to his personality. 4 months later I left my Husband and we have been 'dating' ever since. Now, the problem~ I am so head over heels for this guy, but he seems so aloof about it. He told me in the beginning (8 mnths ago)that he didn't want a girlfriend. (he was hurt by his exwife who up and left him just before we met) but I thought I could deal with it. well, I can't. I see him6-8 times a month, we have gone out for dinners and now his is saying he wants to take me on a caribbean holiday. If I send him a cute text in between our meetings, he doesn't respond. Its like he only want to get together for sex , but he insists that's not true, I have asked him straight out , how he feels about things but never really answers my questions. I don't know whether to move on are just keep going hoping things will fall into place. HELP

My scorpio friend surprised me.. I still don't have the guts to ask him how he feels about me, so we went out and had a nice talk over 2 drinks ended up exposing a few weaknesses of ours, and about a half hour later he turned my head to his and gave me some deep kisses, repeat 10 mins later out in the open public!

I am married to a scorpio man. He is very sweet and passionate. I'm a leo woman so we have our arguments but I love him so much. He real honest and he always has my back through thick and thin.

lol! I'm a scorpio woman and have been dating a scorpio man for seven years now. I could not imagine the world wihtout him in it. You gave descriptions of both of us, to a T! There is nothing we could not do, of that I have no doubt. I would not trust anyone else to be at my back. I once told him that if I hadn't felt so utterly sarcastic (and if you're like me and use sarcasm a lot you can understand how you can feel sarcastic), he could have pinned my soul to the wall with that penetrating gaze you mentioned. :) A most amusing hub, thank you!

Wonderful hub..I agree with all those traits.My younger brother is a scorpio and I am capricorn. He is brilliant and once he decide on something nobody can change that.I feel I know him completely yet there are so many unrivaled secrets. It is very easy to make him tell the truth..just a hint and he will speak it out all. People loves him. He knows how to manage things well..yet he listen and trust my words more than anything. He wont decide important things without my approval. Above all he knows how to get my approval......

Jynzly: Wow!! Congrats.. You've got a really wonder Scorpio son and a wonderful family :) And adolescence is the most crucial period for people, especially Scorpios as this is the period which defines whether they will be good citizens or go astray.

Very true! My son is a Scorpio. He started walking at six months; started reading at two years old; became a father at 17, and a millionaire at 22. I am Capricorn, the only mother in the Zodiac that a Scorpio son could listen to, otherwise he may had gone astray. There was so much drama between me and my son before he got that condition now.

Check on this, it's my Scorpio son's life

Great inspiration.

Hi! I just came across your hub and I am shocked! ( in a good way) My son is a Scorpio, and you have described him to a T! Is true, he is the wisest person I know. Ever since he was little boy he would speak with such wisdom that everyone in our family would ask his opinion. The only thing that hasn't surfaced is him is being vindictive. Then again, he is just a child of 15 years old. He does command respect and admiration.

Every one that meets him falls in love with his personality. And yes, he does have that James Bond type. I have been told that by many people. I really enjoyed your Hub. I will make sure that he reads it as well. Thanks!

Capoeira Moves: We Scorpios are indeed very complicated :) And it is possible that not all Capricorns gel with Scorpios. I have a cousin who has a Capricorn. I like his hard working attitude. But I also hate his impracticality (apparently Capricorns are supposed to be more practical than Scorpios). Probably because he is too level-headed that he just cannot see bigger pictures.

Very interesting. Very complicated. But as a Capricorn, experiences with Scorpios haven't been great. So the stars must have been wrong.

I found this very interesting! I am a male born on the scorpio/libra cusp (the latter part of Oct. 22nd). After reading this I truly have more Scorpio traits. Always thought that I was libra but could only identify with a few of those traits. Very interesting!

karthikkash 4 years ago from India Author

curious: I think, as long as you know that he truly likes you, and you are in a relationship, all you need to do is support him. Born as a Scorpio is never easy, though people may think otherwise. I am sure he will appreciate you for your support.

curious 4 years ago

I love my scorpian man, and I know he loves me, but he can be selfish at times. For one, he moved to Vegas to have a better job, and 2 I always the one who has to text him first. He has a lot going on, and one of them has with him.getting full custidy over his daughter which is not mine. I need to know what to do as far as handling my scorpian man.

Very, very true! Voted up, awesome and interesting :) My husband is a Scorpio and I've recognized him in everything you wrote. I don't know whether he would be happier with another sign, but he seems pretty satisfied with me - air sign, Gemini lol Besides being vindictive, a Scorpio man is pretty possessive - something a Gemini woman doesn't accept easily. Well, like you said, it could take a lifetime to understand a Scorpio man, but since I'm married to one, I've got that time to try to understand him completely. At least he's got so many virtues that the negatives can be ignored :) Off to share this hub...

This is bad (in a good way)... I don't give a lot of time reading zodiac signs, but this is HUNDRED (exactly.. 100% correct to the traits that I possess). It so true...It's scary.

Scorpio men are generally shrewd, that is indeed right :) They say that Scorpio men are both emotional and practical. Most times this is true.

joro: It takes some patience with Scorpio men for them to open up. I think at this point, he may just be interested in you, but not necessarily in love with you. Stick around for some time, if you have the patience and see where it goes.

joro 4 years ago

i am really interested in a Scorpio guy and he expressed that he was interested in me as well we hang out frequently but i always feel like there something missing he hates talking on the phone but is constantly busy but feels bad if we don't hang out its hard for me to kno if he is really interested in me or if it just physical attraction type of thing

ive been reading the hub pages and some are very insightful. i enjoyed this: it is wonderful to read. i am married to a scorpio man, closer to the sag cusp instead of the other end, and we've been so happy together for many years. of course we ever expect perfection, and he can be a bit of jerk, (i say that with a warm smile) a lovable, cuddable jerk. lol. when i mean that, it points to the fact that his caustic sense of humour is crazy crazy, but i always smile

*** never expect perfection.

I agree mikeydcarroll67. All need not be accurate. It also depends on the other planets in your birth chart and the environment in which you are brought up, etc.

mikeydcarroll67 4 years ago

I'd say that most of these are correct. I'm a Scorpio male myself and I find myself being overly secretive and stuff as well.

Hey, you are correct to the extent a Scorpio man is hundred percent Passionate in Love , Relationships etc . But I differ on some points . May be a Scorpio man , after all, is shrewd , shrewd too much ...and it pricks may be . "May be" because my Daddy is a Scorpio and He is the best man I have ever met on the globe !!

Dahoglund: Yes, if you are born in the second half of October (after 22nd) and first half of November (till 22nd), you will have most of the Scorpio traits. A couple of days here and there, you will have certain traits of the previous (Libra) or next (Sagittarius) sign. For you, if you are born anywhere between 24-26th of Nov, I am sure you will have some Sagittarius characters. Again, these are only the strong traits. There are a lot of planets/houses, etc which affect a person's personality :)

gmwilliams: Bang on. That is very true. Thank you too for your contribution :)

Scorpio is the sign of extremes. In essence with a Scorpio, it is all or nothing at all to paraphrase a popular 1960s song by Jack Jones. Of course, Scorpio is the most enigmatic sign of the zodiac for it is a "dark" sign" with the negative connotations that go with that association.

Many people are afraid and do not understand the Scorpio psyche. Scorpios are complex people who can fathom any situation and they do not suffer fools gladly. To the average Scorpio, you are either with the program or you are totally history.

Scorpio men are the most intense of all male zodiac types. The positive and evolved Scorpio male is one person who always have your back for a millennium. They will do anything possible to help their family, friends, and other loved ones. A woman who has a positive and/or evolved Scorpio in her life is truly blessed.

However.....yes, there is a however. The negative and/or unevolved Scorpio male is someone to be extremely apprehensive of. This male is the personification of a venomous elapid. This person is highly dangerous and often demonic in his approach to life e.g. the late Joseph Goebbels and Charles Manson. All in all, you have presented an excellent hub on the Scorpio male.

I am a person born in November so I guess that makes me a Scorpio. Some of these things I can identify with, others, not at all.
