So you’ve been on a few dates with your new Scorpio man. While it’s been going well on the surface, you’re curious to dig a layer deeper and find signs that a Scorpio man has feelings for you.
This can be tricky with a Scorpio since they tend to be very private and are not quick to divulge their emotions on the first few dates. However, they are very committed to their partners when they decide they will start taking a relationship more seriously.
When I dated a Scorpio, I was always asking myself, “does he even like me?” I’m a straightforward Sagittarius woman. It was important that I knew if he was having second thoughts or thinking about me as a long-term potential partner. I didn’t have any time to waste and didn’t want to invest in a relationship that wasn’t going anywhere!
Understanding the astrological reasons behind why my Scorpio guy was acting how he did, helped me to pick up on his cues. If you can understand him on a deeper level, it will make dating and getting involved with the Scorpio man in your life much easier!
Luckily for you, there are some clear signs that Scorpio men have feelings for their partners. Here are ten things to look out for if you think your new love interest is developing deeper feelings for you.
Ten Signs That a Scorpio Man Has Feelings for You
Scorpio men are loyal once they have decided to commit themselves. They’ll begin to share very vulnerable parts of themselves with their partners. Is this the next chapter of your relationship? See if the following signs remind you of your Scorpio man. Then you can decide if his feelings are turning serious!
1. He brings you a gift
Has your Scorpio man ever given you a gift on one of your dates? Whether it was a small or large gesture, it’s a sign that he was thinking of you. Scorpio men view gift-giving as a bonding experience. They love surprising their partners with unexpected tokens of appreciation.
Gift-giving is also a way that the Scorpio man can share something about himself with you. It may be easier than telling you outright since you’re still getting to know each other. So he may gift you something that he thinks you would enjoy, but may also have some hidden meaning for him.
For example, my previous Scorpio boyfriend noticed my love of travel and exploration. He gave me a compass as a gift, which seemed quite random at first. I noticed the significance of it when he told me that he had purchased this compass for a backpacking trip he took with his father as a teenager.
He was showing me that he had the same adventurous spirit and wanted to go on an exploration with me! We weren’t ready to pack our bags for a romantic journey, but he was letting me know he was interested in this future.
2. He tells you more about his personal life
Scorpio men are private individuals who don’t like sharing too much of their personal lives with strangers. Yet, once they start feeling connected with you, they will begin to open up about their personal world.
If they’re opening up a few dates in and telling you vulnerable details about these topics, they trust you as a friend. They may be testing the waters for sharing larger and deeper truths down the line.
You can test this by asking him specific questions about his personal life. If he answers with yes or no, he’s not trying to get too close to you yet. If he gives you more personal details, it’s a good sign that there are feelings developing.
3. He’s the one making plans for your next date
Scorpio men will often sit back and observe what’s happening to get a good sense of a situation. When they start to make plans for future dates, they have made a personal decision to get to know you more.
A Scorpio is very in touch with their emotional needs and will never ask you on a date if he doesn’t feel that you will be a good fit for him. He is far too protective to gamble in this area! He is also perceptive. If he is taking charge of planning dates, he knows that you’re beginning to develop feelings as well.
I knew I was at a turning point with my Scorpio guy when we stopped planning cliched dinner dates. He suggested a river tubing adventure in the countryside.
It was a last-minute decision and we had to make some pretty unorthodox plans. Still, it ended up being one of the most fun and memorable dates I’ve ever been on.
Scorpio men enjoy being spontaneous. If he suggests a date that will get your adrenaline pumping, he’s showing you that he is confident in the feelings developing between you two.
4. You can feel his intense gaze on you
Scorpios are known for their mysterious allure and intense gaze. When they are intently focusing on you, they are actually doing more than assessing how good your hairstyle or make-up looks.
They are actually picking up on subtle clues on how you feel about them and whether they should proceed with seduction. They will pay attention to your body language, your expressions, and your tone of voice. This will help them determine if you are receptive.
They will also be paying attention to how much space you allow between the two of you, and the amount of eye contact. This lets them determine whether you’re flirting back. If you have feelings for this Scorpio, go ahead and lean in to let him know that the flirting is welcome.
5. He becomes very protective – a clear sign!
This tends to show up more in an established relationship with a Scorpio man. You will be able to see signs of protectiveness if he is developing more serious feelings for you over time.
This may come out in a few ways. He may stand between you and other men if there is the possibility of an argument or physical altercation. He may also try to make sure that you are comfortable feeling in your environment. He will offer to get you a drink or help with your coat if it is getting warm in the restaurant.
Make sure that this isn’t a red flag for a possessive or controlling man. Try to make him feel safe and protected as well! Scorpio men prefer a mutual partnership in which both parties are looking out for each other.
6. He shares a personal fault or weakness with you
Scorpios are all about control, which means that they put up an emotional shield. They don’t let others in easily, and they are very selective about the people they choose to share their vulnerabilities with.
These emotional water signs are in a relationship to find a woman that they can share their deepest feelings with. If they are vulnerable, it is because they feel safe and want to take the relationship to a deeper level.
Respect this trust and don’t take advantage of it in any way, shape, or form! If you are the one to whom he is revealing this vulnerability, you can feel confident that it means something significant.
7. He lets you take control of the date
Scorpio is a fixed sign, which means that they are very stubborn and set in their ways. They don’t like to bend or sway, which can make them seem inflexible at times. When they are dating someone that they feel safe with, they can be quite malleable and adapt to the other person’s needs.
This is one of the most tell-tale signs that a Scorpio man likes you. If the date is going well, he may lean back and allow you to take control of where it goes next or what you do. This is a sign of trust, so make sure that you use this opportunity to help guide the date in ways that will engage and impress him.
8. Your guy becomes more reserved
This one is a bit counter-intuitive but stay with me for a moment. Perhaps you’ve noticed on your first few dates that this man has been very open and flirtatious.
Then, by date 3 or 4, he has suddenly become very quiet. While it may appear that his interest is fading, remember that he is on a date with you, so the interest is there.
Things were warming up for me and my Scorpio date and I noticed this sudden cool-off. I first thought that he had changed his mind about me. As it turns out, he was taking some time to assess whether I really liked him back and if I was going to be a safe person for him.
Once I realized this, I proceeded to be my Sagittarius self. I expressed my interest and affection for him without any fear or inhibition. It took a few more minutes of this back and forth, but I was able to discover that he was actually pretty into me.
9. He remembers details about your stories
Scorpios are award-winning observers. They tend to remember details about most things that interest them. Whether it is the plot of a movie or book you were discussing at brunch or a story about your friends.
Keep an ear out for him asking you questions about your stories and remembering the details. This is his way of showing interest in what you are saying, which means that he wants to know more about you.
If he is really interested in what you are saying, it might get to the point where he interrupts your story because of a detail that you left out. He will ask a question about it and then want to continue with the story from there, which is his way of showing that he is completely engaged.
Return the favor and show your Scorpio man that you remember the tiny details of his life as well! This will go a long way for making him feel appreciated.
10. He starts to make sexual remarks (the obvious tell)
Scorpio rules the 8th house, which is the house of sex, mystery, transformation, and death. So it goes without saying that Scorpios are very, if not overly, sexual individuals. They may make seductive comments as soon as the first date.
While this isn’t the whole story when it comes to feelings growing in a relationship, it is certainly a major part of it for the Scorpio man! He will not pursue a romantic relationship where there isn’t a fairly quick sexual spark.
How to Know if a Scorpio Man Likes You?
A Scorpio man will act more vulnerable if he likes you. He won’t be as open as a firey Aries man. He may take some time to reveal his feelings, but if he’s interested, he’ll find a way to let you know.
Firstly, you’ll begin to feel his eyes on you. When a Scorpio man notices someone in a room, there are vibes that let the person know they’re being watched.
You’ll also notice that he’s paying more attention to you than others in the room. If he’s interested, he’ll focus on what you’re saying with great intensity and make sure to remember the details.
He will also be vying for your attention if he likes you. He will share more than he usually would with strangers or new friends. He’ll also make an effort to relate his stories to yours.
In this way, he may be testing you to see if you’re interested in him as well. He likes a partner with emotional depth and the intellectual capacity to keep up with him.
He’s playing a bit of a game. If he tells you something personal, he’s testing to see how much information you’ll share about yourself in return.
How Do You Know a Scorpio Man Is Serious
Scorpio men can enjoy mystery and all of the games surrounding dating. But when they find someone they’re seriously interested in, they’ll be very straightforward. They’ll share all their feelings in vivid detail to make the closest connection with you possible.
He’ll want to know your hopes and dreams, your fears and secrets. He’s not satisfied with surface-level conversations.
You may start to see a Scorpio man’s shadows if he is getting serious. This means he’ll reveal his insecurities, fears, and past traumas. This could come out as deep vulnerable sharing, or the Scorpio could sting you with his words.
It’s a sign that he trusts you enough to share the parts of himself that he usually keeps hidden away. He wants you to know him on a deep level and understand all of him – the good and the bad.
If he’s getting serious, he may also get possessive. He wants to know who you’re with and what you’re doing when he’s not around.
Jealousy is a common emotion for Scorpio men. If he likes you, he may try to control your behavior or who you spend time with. He’ll do this by making veiled threats or trying to make you feel guilty.
Is a Scorpio Shy When in Love?
Some Scorpio men are shyer than others, and this sign is overall reserved. But in general, he will make it known when he is in love. He is deeply loyal and committed and will communicate this to his partner if he’s feeling it.
Rather than shying away, he will likely tell you that he is all in. He will also be more affectionate than he usually is and will want to spend as much time with you as possible.
When a Scorpio man is in love, things can get intense. He may step out of his shyness in areas you didn’t expect. For example, he may become very protective and defensive of you. This is because you’ve now entered his inner circle and he will fight for you as he would for himself.
Any sexual shyness will dissipate once a Scorpio man enters this phase emotionally. He is naturally included towards physical intimacy and sees it as a priority in a long-term relationship.
When in love, a Scorpio man may still exhibit shyness when it comes to expressing his deepest personal feelings. He may struggle to be open when he’s experiencing challenges in his relationship.
This is because the Scorpio lives deep in the waters of the unconscious. He may not even be fully aware of his own emotions at times.
Another area where your Scorpio man may exhibit shyness or privacy is in his own home. If he is protective over his personal space, it could be hard for him to open up and let another person share it.
If you do eventually shack up with your Scorpio man, it’s very likely that he will want to have a private area such as a man cave or home office.
Of course, this isn’t to say that he won’t let you in at all – he just may need some time and space to himself every now and then. It’s in his nature to be solitary at times, even if he’s head over heels in love with you.
Signs a Scorpio Man Is Fighting His Feelings for You
Scorpio men are pretty good at dating and casual relationships because they’re happy to take things slow. They don’t feel the need to rush into anything and can enjoy the process of getting to know someone.
However, when a Scorpio man is fighting his feelings for you, this could change. He may exhibit a lot of hot and cold behavior. As an intense and watery sign, he may be baring his soul to you one minute and then clamming up the next.
Another sign that a Scorpio man is fighting his feelings for you is if he gets nervous. This guy is not the type to get nervous easily. So if he’s suddenly fidgeting or can’t seem to look you in the eye, it might be because he’s falling for you and doesn’t quite know how to deal with it.
You may have noticed that your Scorpio man is a flirt but never follows through with his racy suggestions. This is yet another sign that he is fighting his feelings. You may be baffled by his behavior. But he may actually be acting this way because he is unsure how you will react to his true feelings.
If a Scorpio man is active on your social media platforms but rather quiet in person, this could be another sign that he’s fighting his feelings. He may feel more comfortable expressing himself online than he does in person. This is because a Scorpio man can be quite guarded when it comes to his emotions.
If you have been intimate with a Scorpio man, there are ways he may be fighting his feelings for you even in the bedroom. For example, he may be hesitant to open up and share his fantasies with you. He may also be less passionate than usual during sex.
This could be because he’s afraid of being too emotionally vulnerable with you. Once a Scorpio man starts to open up sexually, it can be hard for him to hold himself back in the relationship.
