Whether you are looking for a partner, friend, or anything in-between, you can’t go wrong with the dependable and loyal Taurus. EVERYONE should have a Taurus as a best friend. If you don't, you’d better go friend hunting immediately. Not only will a Taurus charm the pants off of you, but they will also be one of the most trustworthy friends you have. Here are the reasons that you need a Taurus friend in your life:
Reason #1: No one gives better advice than a Taurus.
Taurus is often called upon for advice because they are FULL of common sense. The Taurus is well known for their practical mind and it’s for this reason that they often find themselves being called upon by friends and loved ones who are in need of a second opinion or just some damn good advice. They are known to be action oriented and very rational people. They are able to separate their emotions from the situation (they have very high emotional intelligence) and think before feeling. They will give you the best advice you can get. Because they think so systematically about everything, they also make great pros and cons lists. When problems arise you can count on Taurus to give you a healthy dose of common sense.
Reason #2: Relationships are important to Taurus. They are totally loyal and devoted to their (small) inner circle.
While some signs go through friends and partners fast, or place romantic relationships above all else, that is not the Taurus. Taurus pick their friends and partners carefully. They want the best of everything and to enjoy life as much as possible. For a Taurus, this means a lot of healthy and harmonious relationships with people they love and respect. A Taurus is not a fairweather friend. They expect a lot, but are not shy about giving back even more to those they care about.
If you are a trusted confidante to a Taurus, congratulations. This is an elite position you have to spend time earning, but once you do you’re basically in for life. Your Taurus friend has your back no matter what, ride or die, and they’ll protect you from anyone who says otherwise. At times they can even feel like a protective older brother or sister, but you know it comes from a place of deep loving and caring about your wellbeing.
Reason #3: Those who have a Taurus friend already would know that they're the most loyal friends they can ever have. Whether it is fighting for you, or carrying you home when you pass out, they'll always have your back.
They are the dependable friend who will always bet here when you need them the most. Life happens and suddenly you can find your usually capable self in need of help. From saving you from sudden inconvenient events like a car accident or getting stranded after a night out to the really dark times when you couldn’t keep going without the support of your loved ones - a Taurus will always be there with you.
Taurus is reliable and the one that you want to have around when the shit hits the fan.
Sometimes you just need that one ultra dependable and reliable friend that you always know that you can count on no matter what. And for many people the Taurus is just that. They’ll never disappear just because things get a bit rough and they will often swoop in to save the day when they see their loved ones in trouble.
Reason #4: They will make you feel protected and safe. Taurus will be your ultimate protectors when you need it most.
Like we hinted at in the previous point, a Bull will make you feel safe at all times. He or she naturally has a protective demeanor, and wants to keep all of his or her friends and family out of harm’s way. A Taurus will never make you feel vulnerable or uneasy, as their steady, loving nature guides them to watch out for everyone close to them. They are brave, strong souls, so they will take on your burdens for you and make sure you feel protected at all times.
Never underestimate a Taurus' ability to stand up for you. Some think Taurus' overprotective nature is a little too much to handle, but friends are always at the top of their list. That just means being protective comes with the friendship.
Reason #5. They have the best taste in everything.
As a friend to a Taurus you’ll have a built in curator who knows all the best restaurants in town, introduces you to the best music, and (if they’re your partner) knows how to have really good sex. Everything that has to do with touch, taste, or any other sense is an area every Taurus is an expert at.
They will introduce you to the BEST music on earth.
Taurus and music go together like tequila and lime; a perfect combination! Taurus thinks of music as a way to bond with friends AND as icebreakers for meeting new people. When it comes to music they don’t discriminate. From Alternative Rock to Big Band Swing and everything in between, they can appreciate whatever genre you throw at them. Which is perfect because nothing brings people together like some good tunes.
Reasons #6: Taurus is honest and good for their word.
Taurus doesn’t like to play games and they tend to be very direct and honest with people. A Taurus is a straight-shooter. They don’t beat around the bush and they will always speak their mind. They will say what you need to hear right to your face (because that's what friends are FOR!). To some they can sometimes come off as a bit blunt but those closest to Taurus respect and appreciate their honesty and straight forward approach.
You can count on a Taurus.
A Taurus won’t say “let’s do lunch” if they don’t mean it. They don’t make promises lightly, and would rather not make them at all than swear to do something they aren’t sure they can handle. If a Taurus cares for you, you are very lucky. When they say that they’ll be there, you know that they will.
They will take every secret to the grave!
They will never reveal your secrets. They take trust VERY seriously and will never break it once earned. Taurus are very dependable and seek stability in friendships and relationships. They are mature in their outlook and govern their subordinates smoothly. They always help a friend in need. Honesty defines these natives and will do anything to help others.
Reason #7. They are devoted to bettering themselves (and inspires you to do the SAME).
You will never meet a Taurus who's comfortable being second best. Whether it's pushing for a promotion at work or upping their game at the gym, Taurus is always devoted to being a better themself.
They are those voices in the back of your head telling you when to stop.
Taurus are masters of self-control. If you’re lacking in this area, then there’s definitely something you can learn from them. Taurus will make the best out of any situation. A Taurus friend is your best sidekick. They nurture a tender heart and care for weak and unfortunate. They are reliable and you can count on them to pour their heart out by sharing thoughts and opinions.
They know how important it is to NEVER take shortcuts in life.
Nothing keeps a Taurus more motivated than going above and beyond with their work. Sure, it takes them a little longer to finish something, but when it's done, they know their success is all because they made the extra effort. Having a Taurus as a best friend means having someone to cheer you on when you're stuck on something (like a project at work), as well as someone who can show you what a little extra effort can do for you. They want success to be contagious!
Reason #8: They will forgive and forget.
Yes, Taurus forgive you, and they’ll forgive you again. And, they’ll forgive you a third time. They don’t like to burn bridges, and they’d prefer not to hold grudges. But, each time they forgive you, you’re pushed further away from their inner circle. One day, you may look up to find they’re nowhere in sight.
Reason #9: They have a great sense of humor.
Your Taurus friend will laugh with you, at you, and at themselves. It’s all in good fun, because they know life’s too short not to laugh. Taurus individuals have an excellent sense of humor, which tends to be rather wry or dark. They have a sense of “timing” even as a small tot and their considerable intelligence will require you to be on the ball at all times. They will “get” and make jokes that would go over many other people's heads. They will make you laugh with their sick sense of humor and dirty jokes.
Reason #10: They’re a rock. You won’t have to put up with crazy antics with a Taurus.
Taurus are seriously mature, and aware of how individualistic they are. They are associated with a careful approach and a very responsible attitude. You will never meet a more trustworthy or responsible person in your life. They’re the old souls of your friend group who are fanatical about maintaining an even keel and avoiding drama.
They are great at managing, well, everything.
Taurus are wonderful at managing time, people and situations. They excel at taking charge when need be. You can always call them and they’ll come to help you out in stressful and overwhelming situations. They plan and organize their money, savings and investments. Their suggestions are often sought and valued by others. Money management is just one of their many strengths.
Reason #11: A Taurus can have fun doing anything.
Sometimes people may label Taurus as boring but those people probably don't know them very well because around friends they can get quite crazy and wild indeed. Whether it’s going out with a group of friends, hosting dinners, or more thrilling activities like bungee jumping or sky diving - they’re always down for the ride! Taurus also makes great company that not everyone can match. Whether you're spending a day indoors making cookies or enjoying the weather and going on a day hike, Taurus makes EVERYTHING more fun.
Reason #12: A Taurus will accept you as you are.
Taurus won’t want you to change, because they will love and adore you from the start. They accept people wholeheartedly, flaws and all. Being an Earth sign, Taurus have a knack for being grounded and stable, and can easily adapt to and understand a variety of people. Taurus might have their own hidden issues with themselves, but as far as other people go, they don’t try to change anyone. They make friends quite easily despite their more reserved personality, because people appreciate the sense of stability and safety that they exude. So be yourself, you’ll find a great listener and supporter in a Taurus.
Reason #13: A Taurus sincerely feels everything.
They are the most genuine people you will ever meet. You will never have to worry about their feelings being "fake" towards you. They fall hard. Just never take advantage of their kindness because any feelings they did have for you will most likely be gone. When a Taurus becomes attached to you, they’re always thinking about you even if they aren’t talking to you or in your physical presence. They are very sensitive, but their emotional intelligence is exceptionally strong. Sometimes, they take things too personally, but it’s just because their mind is always in fear of the unknown. Just reassure them that everything is going to be okay.
Reason #14: They’ll make you feel more loved than anyone else.
One of the negative traits associated with Taurus is their stubbornness. While it’s true that it’s hard to get one to change their mind, this is a double-edged sword. You’ll never have to worry about them changing their mind about you. A Taurus is extremely passionate and sympathetic. If you let a Taurus into your heart, it will be one of the best things you have ever done. They are deeply committed to people they find worthy of their time. It’s very important for a Taurus to have a partner who will understand that they need their space. Once a Taurus feels like their needs are being met, it will open them to love you so much more. A Taurus will go above and beyond to make his or her partner happy in order to have a wonderful relationship and share an incredible bond. When a Taurus loves you, there’s a security there in knowing it’s forever. Once they do love you, you’ll never see another love like it.
