Have you ever been in one of those pools with a lazy river? You know, the kind at family water parks and really fancy gyms? And have you ever tried to swim against the super-powerful jets, only to be repeatedly pushed backward onto your pool noodle? Yeah, that’s pretty much the vibe we’re talking about here. Because while it’s true that hanging out with a mostly laid-back, luxury-loving Taurus can be like lounging in the world’s most comfortable hot tub (what? I like water analogies, okay?), it’s also true that it’s almost impossible to get them to change their minds. About anything. Even in the face of facts, witnesses, legal testimony, etc.
Of course, there’s this thing called real life, which means that you and your favorite bull will occasionally disagree and need to compromise. Like, IDK, when your Taurus is insisting on making a V-Day cheese soufflé together and you know via The Great British Baking Show that soufflé technicals always end in tears.
Your best move: The second they start to exhibit the telltale signs of stubbornness (furrowed brow, heavy breathing, smoke billowing from the nose), just…walk away. No, you’re not letting them win—you’re giving them time to calm down, because they need a little interlude to cool off while feeling like they’re “right” (even if you *know* they are not). Sure, this approach slows things down—and honestly, that’s kind of half the point here—but it’s crucial if you don’t want the words “Seamless promo code” to incite another 10-minute tirade.Related StoryWant to Date a Taurus?

An even better strategy: Plant some very early seeds for what you want. A Taurus taken by surprise is one who will (probably) never ever back down. So begin your romantic-dinner planning in advance (suggestion: right TF now) to make time for plenty of walking away/walking back discussions. Who knows, with time and steady hints, they might get so used to your idea that it feels like their idea and they’ll be ready to defend it at all costs.ADVERTISEMENT – CONTINUE READING BELOWhttps://86a8d33de6a28717691c0b93452fedb8.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.htmlhttps://86a8d33de6a28717691c0b93452fedb8.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
Let me pause here to say that if you’re both Tauruses, this is actually a good thing…as long as you take turns letting each other “win.” And even that may not always be necessary. In the case of that V-Day dinner, you’ll probably end up agreeing—since you both have the same work ethic and refined palate—that making a soufflé sounds like casual fun. Especially if you’ve pre-agreed to have some takeout pre-ordered, just in case.
