This Is How A Scorpio Shows Love

Falling for a Scorpio? Count yourself lucky. Unlike other intense and magnetic signs (ahem, Geminis), Scorpios tend to stick around once they've found that special someone. 

As Cosmopolitan reported, despite this zodiac sign being guarded and filled with an all-or-nothing sort of passion, if you manage to get a Scorpio to open up to you, it's game over. Once you've earned the trust of a Scorpio, you've earned a lifetime full of loyal and earnest love (plus, passionate sex to boot!).

"Scorpio pursues love with intensity and drive," astrologer Clarisse Monahan told Bustle. "There needs there to be a deep, emotional, and magnetic connection for them to fall in love. But once they get there, Scorpio, being a fixed water sign, tends to stay in love and in partnership connections for a long time."

She added: "This is especially so when they feel they are in a twin flame or soulmate scenario. Mars is the ancient ruler of Scorpio, so they will fight to keep the love alive, and the relationship is going. This is not a sign that gives up on love."

Unfortunately, Scorpio's intensity and sensitivity can also present roadblocks in a relationship. Despite the fact that it takes a while for Scorpios to get to a point where they are openly combative, if they are, you might realize that Scorpios in relationships can be jealous and struggle to regain control in unhealthy ways, per Cosmopolitan.

Scorpios in love will do a lot of staring

First things first: A Scorpio in love will spend quite a bit of time staring at you. Though, to be clear, this staring is not exactly in a creepy way, as secretive Scorpios never gaze at you directly or for long enough to be too obvious, according to

This part of falling in love can be traced back to Scorpio's analytical side, which will likely study you for quite a while to ensure you're their perfect match.

If a Scorpio is falling in love with you, they might debut their creative side to write a song, craft a poem, or create an artistic masterpiece to express just how much they adore you, per Love to Know. Scorpios will also be channeling their passionate side by going above and beyond in the bedroom to please you.

Scorpios will also do their best to test a partner whom they believe might be "the one." Since Scorpios often have built-in trust issues, they will try to push you away in order to see if you stick around through all of the (gentle!) mind games. 

"They want to make sure you are worthy of being let into their inner world," astrologers Imani Quinn and Ellen Bowles of "The Woke Mystix" told Bustle. "Once you've passed their emotional tests and have gained their trust, it's easier for them to fall in love with you."
