Dating a Scorpio Man: Jekyll or Hyde?

Time for another tongue in cheek (mostly!) dating article from the perspective of astrology and how it relates to the man of a specific sign; in this case, the male Scorpio. Now, I should tell you that I have dated men from every zodiac sign and I tend to be very confident with any man regardless of his background or sign. But Scorpio men do have a way about them that results in one of two effects on my person: I am either very repulsed by them, or very freaked out by them. Not for the same reasons, of course, as everyone knows there are two distinctive types of Scorpio men. You've got Mr. Sensitive and Mr. Scary -- and that sounds like a good lead-in if I've ever written one.

Mr. Sensitive Scorpio

I didn't know this breed of Scorpio existed until I was in my late 20s, but before you get the impression I mean this in an Alan Alda sort of way -- no, nuh-uh. (And no, he's not a Scorpio.) You see, Mr. Sensitive Scorpio is just better at expressing his emotions than his Mr. Scary counterpart. Mr. Sensitive isn't afraid to cuddle and kiss you gently and hold your hand and stroke your hair and give you butterfly kisses on your nose until you start to get a bit weirded out by it all. But that doesn't mean he won't turn into the same vengeful bastard his Mr. Scary counterpart becomes when you cancel a date or, God forbid, dump his creepy butt. And I mean that in the nicest possible way, obviously.

Mr. Scary Scorpio

Mr. Scary Scorpio is, perhaps, the most intriguing sign in the male zodiac. I confess that I find them fascinating. Creepy and scary, but fascinating. They are often very sexy, even if they look best with a bag on the head, because they are so confident and know how to move in a way that exudes a very primal sort of slightly-unbalanced energy. Cos hey, it's kind of sexy to meet a man who may or may not be a psychopath. That's part of the joy of dating, right? But this guy is a downright vindictive jerk when he feels double-crossed, so I'd suggest checking his definition of that word before you do anything he might consider to be a slight.

Scorpio Sex Appeal

I would actually have to compare the draw of a good Scorpio male to that of a good Leo male. The two are totally different breeds, but they are both magnetic. Think of Leo as being the cowboy sheriff dressed in white, while Scorpio is the villain dressed in black who happens to be trying to shoot the sheriff in the back. Both men are powerful and manly, but the dangerous guy is sometimes a little more sexy than he ought to be. If you're me, anyway!

The Basics:

  • How to flirt with a Scorpio man: Worship him
  • How to tick a Scorpio man off: Be more perceptive than him

  • How to scare a Scorpio man off: Lie to him

  • How to get a Scorpio man back: Pretty difficult to manage once he's made up his mind
