The Scorpio Man: Love, Sex, Friendship, Style
The Scorpio Man
wary of the Scorpion's sting. The Scorpio man is not a man to be trifled with.
He is serious and sometimes stern, with little time for the non-essential and
unimportant. He seems to see the world only in black and white. Shades of grey
are too ambiguous and do not interest him.
He is incredibly curious, and wants to learn about everyone and everything, but
he usually likes to figure these things out on his own. His
keen sense of intuition helps him unearth the plain truth of things, and he is a
master at asking questions that are both direct and penetrating. He rarely takes
others' answers at face value, however, and comes to his own conclusions.
A Scorpio man always has a firm hold over his own destiny. He has control over
any situation he finds himself in, and lives life on his own terms. There is
deadly kind of beauty to the Scorpio man – he is independent, fearless, and
ambitious. Don't get in his way and don't place any bets against him. A
self-made winner, the Scorpio man rarely knows the pain of defeat. His
stubbornness and resourcefulness will drive him to keep trying, determined to
get what he wants. He is also hard working and enjoys the
satisfaction of basking in the fruits of his labor.
The Scorpio man doesn't live under a rock like his animal sign does, but he is
secretive and very complex at times, not likely to spill out his darkest secrets
at the first sign of friendliness. In fact, friendships with a Scorpio man have
to be proven and won with loyalty before he will get chummy. Attempts at trying
to get too close too fast may result in him retreating to his lair in high
suspicion and a little bit of alarm. You can't tame a Scorpio man. He's not a
pet to be coddled or pampered but a natural force to be reckoned with.
Ruled by Mars the god of war and Pluto the god of the underworld, Scorpio men
are intense, passionate, and filled with desire. They can be moody and vengeful,
with a hot temper and long memories for any wrongs, imagined or otherwise, done
Intimidated yet? Well, once you get to know a Scorpio man, you will be happy you
took the time. He is a delight in his own way - a man who cuts through
appearances and gets to your very soul. He is more vulnerable than he lets on,
and he is wiser than probably any other man you know.
All Scorpios have a long-term strategy and approach to life, so if you lose a
battle with a Scorpio man today, it doesn't mean he's given up. He's probably
just biding his time and waiting for an opportunity tomorrow. This
sign is nothing if not resolute. Steamy Scorpios include Joaquin Phoenix,
Matthew McConaughey, Leonardo di Caprio and Chris Noth.
Love, Sex, Romance, and Relationships with an Scorpio Man
Although a Scorpio man may seem unemotional, that's all just for show.
Underneath his calm, cool, exterior is an electric undercurrent of roiling
feelings. Like all water signs, he is much attuned to his own and others'
emotions and feels deeply. Not much of this is on display for the outside world,
however, as Scorpios dislike losing control over their own feelings, at least
Love for a Scorpio man is both powerful and passionate, a catalyst that changes
his entire life and outlook. He is a caring and devoted lover, if a little
possessive. This possessiveness is just the Scorpio way of expressing his love.
Behind his aloof exterior, the Scorpion is sensitive and loving but he will only
let down his guard and show this side of his personality to the right partner.
Scorpios are typically considered most compatible with Pisces and Cancer.
The Scorpio man's charisma and magnetic charm explode into a shower of sparks in
the bedroom. Impossible to resist, he is darkly sexy and very intense. In the
aftermath of sex with a Scorpio the phrase "best I've ever had" is often used to
describe the encounter. His intuition and passion make the Scorpio man a perfect
lover. An enigma between the sheets as well as out of them, this sense of
mystery is often what draws so many lovers to a Scorpion's den. They are not
usually disappointed by what they find there. If you're looking for safety,
security, and missionary, then this Scorpion is not for you. Adventurous and
lusty, the Scorpio man will try anything once, even if it's just to say he's
been there, done that and doesn't think too much of it.
He is generally considered most compatible with Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, and
Virgo. See also Sun sign compatibility. However, there is a lot more to compatibility than only the comparison of the
Sun signs. For example, how do your Venus signs compare? Find out

Understanding Scorpio Men
Multi-faceted and complex, the Scorpio man is an emotionally charged individual
who can be as intimidating as he is passionate. Intensely loyal to friends and
family, his unlimited fervor makes for a wildly exciting partner. Like his
Zodiac sign, the Scorpion, he can be an ominous force to be reckoned with when
As volatile as the Scorpio man's reputation, there's a surprisingly calm and
collected side to his personality, and in fact, this is the side that is most
commonly in place. When you combine this with an extremely analytical mind and a
curious nature, you have a man whose exhilarating complexity is like nothing
you've ever experienced before.
Money & the Scorpio Man
The Scorpio man has a need to be in control, so he manages money very well -
usually. True to the intricate nature of this man, a compulsive behavior may
sometimes take over and cause him to fork over money on an extravagance that's
not really needed, but looks good in the driveway.
On the positive side, the Scorpio man can control his spending and will easily
switch from needless expenditures to sitting with his banker and discussing
appropriate financial investments for the future.
Fashion & the Scorpio Man
Since Scorpio is considered the sexiest sign of the Zodiac, what color could be more
appropriate for this man than red? You won't see him all dressed in crimson
unless he's presenting himself as Santa Claus, but his pin-striped suit could be
accessorized with a red silk tie. And the color of that car he drives?
Expect the Scorpio man to be dressed in the latest styles with clothing selected
to accent his strong physique and natural good looks. His jewelry will be well
designed – distinctive, but not garish. From jeans to tuxedos, the Scorpio
gentleman knows how to dress.
Relationships & the Scorpio Man
The Scorpio man enjoys his family and large circle of friends. Although he's
generous and caring, those who have done him wrong may see an equally
vindictive and nasty side to the Scorpio man's personality. However, many
Scorpios have learned that the best revenge is living well, and will gladly
freeze out any wrong-doer and simply live the best he can. Scorpios can be
extremely wise. It's true that they might hold on to anger longer than most
signs, but as they mature, they learn better ways to manage their emotions.
Although a Scorpio man enjoys looking into the lives of everyone around him, he
maintains an air of secrecy about his own affairs. This sexy mystique adds one
more dimension to an already complicated character profile.
Scorpio men are unafraid, or at least far less afraid than many men, of
intensity in a woman or in a relationship. He won't avoid a tricky area,
preferring to argue if need be than to gloss over deeper issues. This is a
highly attractive trait to many people. As well, it should be noted that Scorpio
men dislike being ignored or frozen out. The cold shoulder approach is not a
good idea with a Scorpio partner.
Scorpio men are looking for someone "real". They are not impressed with
superficiality and prefer that partners are true to themselves.
Romance & the Scorpio Man
Curious to a fault, the Scorpio man's insatiable need to know continues right
into the bedroom. Spontaneous and always eager to try something new, the Scorpio
man's voracious appetite for intimacy requires a partner equally as adventurous
and passionate to keep pace with him. Little known fact about Scorpios: many are
extremely understanding of their partners' needs and desires and will adjust
A jealousy that borders on possessiveness can be the downside to this man's
emotional intensity and he demands the full attention of his partner.
Scorpios who have learned that possessiveness gets them nowhere, however, will
allow a partner breathing room.
Health & the Scorpio Man
People with highly emotional temperaments may also be affected by stress-related health
issues and the Scorpio man is no exception. He would be wise to routinely take a break from his
overly active lifestyle and catch up on his rest. A little relax time is good
for the Scorpio man – and probably appreciated by his partner.
If his companion thinks the rest time will last, then it's a wrong assumption.
The free-spirited Scorpio man has an ability to quickly rejuvenate and normal
ailments don't usually keep him off his feet for long.
Career & the Scorpio Man
The Scorpio man will be a success in whatever career path he chooses to follow.
Tirelessly hard working, this man has a powerful work ethic which makes him an
in-demand employee who's liked and respected by his supervisors and fellow

areas of journalism, psychology, psychiatry, scientific research, and
