Scorpio relationships

This sign brings a sophisticated understanding of feelings and of human nature to relationships. Scorpios can give 110% to someone they love but expect at least the same commitment back. If feeling insecure, they can be jealous and possessive and may tend to make a drama out of every crisis. They can be like a dog with a bone when exploring every Why and Wherefore of the relationship and of the other’s motives. They need to relax and allow a bit of space into the relationship, trusting in their partner’s love.

Scorpio romance

The typical Scorpio thrives on romance and, in particular, on drama. Perhaps it is for that reason that Scorpios fall into two distinct types when it comes to communication; they can be almost silent, vengefully so if they are angry with you or they may come from a position where they don’t mince words but let you have it with both barrels! Jealousy is often a motivating factor when the sparks do fly! On the plus side, the typical Scorpio will be strongly involved with their partner. They also have tremendous strength and stamina, and won’t give up easily on the relationship. When a Scorpio says something or makes a wedding vow, they mean it. Scorpions can be very romantic, but in a brooding, smouldering, intensely passionate and sexual kind of way. If you like romance with a light, gentle touch, you may find a Scorpion rather overwhelming!
