How to Attract the Attention of Your Taurus Crush
If you're crushing on a Taurus-born, you've probably realized pretty quickly that they're not the easiest people to develop a relationship with.
They move very slowly and they're not known for being open with their emotions. Basically, they come equipped with an emotional wall that you have to tear down brick by painful brick.
However, all hope is not lost. Keep scrolling for our tips on how to attract the attention of your Taurus crush.
Give a Gift
Taurus is an Earth sign. As such, they have a special connection to the material world, which is just a nice way of saying that they love receiving gifts. Taurus applies special meaning to physical objects, so giving them a gift will definitely capture their attention. Of course, you can't just bestow an elaborate present on your crush. Instead, opt for little objects that don't have much meaning. A new notebook or a nice pen would be a good place to start. It will have your Taurus crush thinking about you, but it will also ensure that you don't come on too strong.

Compliments Are Key
Taurus-born tend to require a lot of directness in their conversations. They're quite practical signs, so they don't really pick up on subtlety or hints of any kind. A direct approach is important when trying to catch your Taurus' attention. While you can directly confess your feelings, they're bound to respond much better to a healthy influx of compliments. Taurus-born like to be recognized for their accomplishments, and they're sure to feel all warm and fuzzy inside if you shower them in praise. However, make sure all your statements are genuine. They can spot empty flattery from a mile away, and they'll be totally turned off. Genuine compliments are the way to go if you really want to capture your Taurus' attention.
Create a Shared Moment
Taurus-born are all suckers for a little romance. They appreciate the little things. As a sign who embraces experiences, you can definitely capture your crush's attention by creating a shared moment together. Whether it's heading to the midnight premiere of their favorite movie, buying tickets to see their favorite band or plotting a celebration to commemorate a big milestone in their life, a shared experience will have a lot of meaning for your Taurus. Not only are you doing something nice for them, you're also casually communicating your affection in the process.

Ask Them Questions
Taurus-born struggle to be open with their feelings, especially romantically. They need a lot of time to develop a relationship, and often won't jump into anything until they feel completely comfortable. In order to progress your relationship and catch their eye, you have to show them that you're a trustworthy safe space they can rely on. However, it won't be easy. Taurus won't just open up on their own. Instead, you should try to ask them as many questions as you can, therefore communicating to them that you have a genuine interest in their life. They might blow you off at first, but keep it up. After a while they'll start to believe that you really care about them, and subsequently allow themselves to open up more and more.
Tauruses are incredibly logical, analytical people. They consider a situation from all sides and they have an uncanny ability to understand other people's motivations, putting their own aside in the process. Therefore, Taurus-born are adept at picking up on insincerity. This is a sign who values people for who they are. If you try to change yourself to impress them, they'll know it immediately and they won't be interested. Above all else, you have to be 100% true to yourself when trying to catch the attention of your Taurus crush. Otherwise, you don't stand a chance at developing a real relationship.
