If you've found yourself romantically entangled with this complicated sign, there are a few things you need to know. Your Scorpio partner certainly won't tell you themself, so it's our job to keep you informed.
Keep scrolling for seven things you have to expect if you're going to date a Scorpio.
They Move Slowly
Did it take forever for your Scorpio partner to officially commit to a relationship? Yeah, that's pretty much the norm. Scorpios move so slowly when it comes to love. They need lots of time to build trust and respect for their partners, as those feelings don't come naturally. They tend to push people away and believe the worst about everyone. They need time to develop a true connection in which they genuinely value their partner. Patience is key if you want to date this complicated sign.
They'll Keep Your Secrets
Scorpio-born are actually very emotional people, but they stress different aspects of relationships than other signs. They struggle to express how much they care, but you can always trust them to keep your secrets, no matter how big or little they may be. Whatever you talk about with a Scorpio stays between the two of you, you can be sure of it. There are few things a Scorpio hates more than revealing secrets. Gossip, emotional confessions and declarations about your feelings are always safe with this sign.
They Like Assertive People
Scorpios are stubborn and opinionated. They never back down from sharing their feelings, and it can sometimes seem like they just want you to agree with them. If you're an easygoing person, it's tempting to just fall into line and give Scorpio whatever they want. Don't do that. As much as they want to be right, they also despise passive people. They want someone who's just as assertive as they are, and they'll quickly grow bored with a partner who doesn't challenge them.
They Like to Tease
While Scorpios are known for being stubborn, withdrawn people, that's not always the case. Sure, they have their mysterious side, but they're also very witty and clever. They like to tease the people they're close to, especially their romantic partners. A relationship with Scorpio will be full of laughter and good-natured insults. If your ego bruises easily, you should stay far away from this sign. But if you can keep up with their witty banter, you'll find that your connection develops naturally and easily, with plenty of fun along the way.
They Want to Deal With Their Own Issues
Scorpios aren't the type to lean on their partner for answers and support. They may confide in their S.O., but they want to figure things out on their own. If they're feeling emotional or frustrated, the best thing you can do is simply leave them be. They'll work through their own feelings eventually. Even if your intentions are pure, trying to fix their problems will only upset them. Don't offer answers or advice and don't force them into a happy mood. Just let them deal with their own issues and they'll come back to you when they feel better.
They're Naturally Distrusting
Scorpios are generally suspicious of pretty much everyone. They have a hard time believing the truth when they hear it, and they certainly know how to spot a lie. While you should never be dishonest with your Scorpio partner, you should still expect that they'll double and triple-check every word you say. It may feel highly personal and invasive, but it's just a part of who they are. Over time, their need to corroborate your every claim may fade, but in the meantime you shouldn't take their suspicion too personally. It's just a part of who they are.
In addition to their distrusting nature, Scorpios are highly jealous. What's theirs is theirs, and they don't want to feel like they have to fight for your attention. Be wary of bringing up old relationships or flirtations around your partner. While you might have the best of intentions, they won't respond too well to talk of any other romantic partner in your life.
