Would you like to know the definite signs that a Scorpio man has feelings for you?
It is no secret that Scorpio men are hard to read. Scorpios are inherently mysterious and secretive, and they tend to hide their true feelings behind a seemingly impenetrable wall.
When a Scorpio man has feeling for someone, he isn’t likely to reveal them straight away. Instead, you’ll find yourself wondering and guessing for the longest time before you get any degree of clarity – that is, unless you read our guide to spotting whether or not a Scorpio man has feelings for you.
Despite his mysterious nature, a Scorpio man will always be leaving telltale clues if he has developed much deeper feelings for you than what he is letting on. So, without further ado, let us get started.

Some zodiac signs are easier to read than others – and as it happens, Scorpio men are particularly difficult to get a read on. Scorpio men are infallibly mysterious and private, and their facial expressions can be almost impossible to decipher.
Still, if a Scorpio man is falling in love with you, he won’t be able to disguise his interest.
Later on in this article we are going to talk about how to understand and read your Scorpio crush, but this first section is all about the various telltale signs that a Scorpio man is developing some serious feelings for you and sees you as more than just a friend.
Showing genuine interest in you
Scorpio men tend to be very reserved, so the mere fact he is talking to you tells you that there is a glimmer of interest. Of course, we have yet to establish whether that interest is platonic, professional or romantic.
If a Scorpio man is asking you questions about your life and listening attentively as you respond, this indicates that he is curious and wants to learn more about you. If he refers back to something that you mentioned earlier on in your conversation, this is a good sign that he is paying attention to what you think and have to say.
Giving you tailor-made advice
If a Scorpio man has feelings for you, he will want to see you flourish, prosper, and overcome any obstacles you may be facing.
Because of this, he will not only listen patiently to you describing your challenges, but will also offer you genuinely helpful, tailored advise.
Mirroring your body language
Yet another thing to watch out for when you are having conversations with your Scorpio crush is his body language.
If his body language is mirroring or harmonising with yours, this is a wonderful sign that he is subconsciously trying to establish a shared frequency between you.
Something else to pay attention to is whether or not he is leaning in or leaning out as he is talking to you or listening to what you have to say. Is his body turned towards you, and are his gestures open and relaxed?
If he is turning his body away from you, this could be an indication that he is feeling uncomfortable or is wanting to leave the situation. If, on the other hand, he is leaning in and has his body angled towards you, this is a sign of interest.
Initiating and holding intense eye contact
Eye contact is a big deal for a Scorpio man. If he isn’t interested in you to some degrees, he his gaze will keep gliding away if you attempt to catch and hold it.
If, on the other hand, he is interested in you, he will hold eye contact with you for longer periods of time before blinking or looking away.
Initiating physical contact
Physical contact really means something to a Scorpio man.
While some of the other zodiac signs are naturally very tactile, a Scorpio man tends to reserve his touch for someone he is wanting to get closer to. In other words, if he occasionally places his hand on your arm or on your shoulder while the two of you are speaking, or if he holds your hand for longer than necessary when greeting you, these are obvious signs of interest.
Of course, if he goes further than that and holds your hand in his or caresses your cheek, you can be damned sure that he is romantically interested in you. While a lingering hug or a hand placed on your arm could be ambiguous, any overtly affectionate touch sends a strong signal that he is drawn to you.
Spending quality time with you
Scorpio men value their time as a precious resource, and they don’t like to squander it on anyone unworthy.
If a Scorpio man isn’t interested in you, he simply isn’t going to be spending any time in your company (beyond what might be absolutely necessary), so if a Scorpio man takes the initiative to suggest that you spend time together, this is one of the best indications you are going to get that is developing feelings for you.
Scorpio men are inherently private and reserved, so anything he may reveal about his true feelings, intentions or experiences is to be viewed as a rare declaration of trust and interest.
Most Scorpio men keep a tight circle of friends and only let new people in very slowly. In other words, if a Scorpio man introduces you to his friends, invites you to dinner at his home, or invites you take part in one of his favorite pastimes, it all means something.
Revealing his true feelings
Now we are getting to the seriously undeniable signs that a Scorpio man has feelings for you.
One of these signs is if he confesses his true feelings for you. A Scorpio man simply won’t do this if he doesn’t mean it. As a species, Scorpio men don’t play games – they neither want to waste your time, or their own.
Scorpio men are known for hiding feelings or at least only revealing them reluctantly. Knowing this, you can be certain that if a Scorpio man tells you he is falling for you, he has thought it through and he really means it.
Yet another undeniable sign that a Scorpio man has developed strong feelings for you is if any romantic gestures that he might display.
Generally speaking, Scorpio men prefer to show rather than to tell. So don’t be surprised if the romantic gestures precede any verbal declarations of feelings.
A Scorpio man’s romantic gestures come in many forms, but most often they manifest as bouquets of flowers, dinner invitations, handwritten notes and other lovingly thought out surprises.
Acting according to the hero instinct
Are you familiar with the hero instinct and what it means in relationships?
The hero instinct is inherent in all men and causes them to want to protect and provide for their romantic partner. In other words, if your Scorpio crush is defending, protecting or providing for you in any sense, it is as manifestation of his hero instinct in action.
If you manage – whether knowingly or not – to activate a Scorpio guy’s hero instinct, you will find him offering you advice, insisting on paying for dinner, carrying things for you or otherwise making you feel loved, protected and cared for to the umpteenth degree.
Scorpio men are not necessarily old-fashioned or conservative – in fact, they rarely are at their core – but they nevertheless place value on some traditional virtues, such as defending and taking care of your love interest with a dose of old-school manners and charm.
Understanding Scorpio men
If you want to have any hope of being able to read your Scorpio crush, you have to start out with a basic understanding of who he is and how he functions.
Fortunately, astrology can help you map and understand the Scorpio male personality with astonishing accuracy. Here we go:
Scorpio is a water sign
The first and most important thing you should know about your Scorpio man is that he is a water sign.
All of the zodiac sign are divided into one of four elements: Earth, air, fire and water. Each element possesses its own qualities, traits, strengths and weaknesses. Simply knowing what element your crush’s star sign belongs to is going to take you a long way towards understanding their drives, motivations and core personality.
All of the water signs are emotional creatures, and your Scorpio guys is no different. Water represents emotion, feelings, intuition and the subconscious realm. In other words, the water signs are deep. They navigate the world according to their emotions and intuitions, rather than being governed by their logical minds or material concerns.
The fact that your crus his a water sign reveals a lot about how he functions and what he values in life. All of the water signs are inherently romantic souls that value love and romance extremely highly. Even if they are not stating this outright, it is always the case that water signs long for deep emotional connection with someone else.
Water signs are also typically not very interested in temporary flings. Even if they have a slew of one night stands with a bunch of extremely attractive people, this will not do much to satisfy them. A Scorpio man ultimately longs for something much deeper and much more profound than just sexual chemistry. He wants connection, devotion, trust, undeniable compatibility on a core level.
Whether they are acting from a place of devotion or jealousy, a Scorpio man will do much and go far for love.
Another important thing you should know about your Scorpio guy is that he is extremely perceptive – perhaps even psychic. Chances are, he is reading you much better than you are reading him. If you are his love interest, he will be observing and taking note of every little thing about you.
Scorpio is a fixed sign
A lesser known aspect of astrology is that the signs, as well as being divided into elements, are also divided into three core groups: Cardinal, fixed and mutable. Whether a sign is cardinal, fixed or mutable has a great deal of influence on the character of the star sign.
The cardinal signs are the ones that begin each season – they’re Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. They’re hardworking, steadfast, visionary. They’re often referred to as the frontrunners and trailblazers of the zodiac because they are utterly unafraid of chartering new territory.
Then we have the fixed signs, in the middle of the seasons, said to embody the essence of their element. We’re talking about Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. The fixed signs are the ultimate expression of their element are called the stabilizers of the zodiac. They’re stubborn, brave and independent.
Finally the mutable sigs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces – are the ones that end each season. They’re called the fine-tuners of the zodiac and are known for being open-minded, curious and adaptable.
The fact that Scorpio belongs to the fixed signs tells you that your Scorpio man is the very personification of the water element and its energy. He’s an independent thinker and likes to do things his own way. He’s private and needs plenty of personal space, while being deeply loyal to the ones he loves. He moves through the world with deliberation and a great deal of determination, however, he is a lone wolf rather than the alpha of the pack.
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto
All of the zodiac signs are ruled by a planet, an for Scorpio, that planet is Pluto.
Pluto is not only the name of a Disney cartoon character, but also of the Roman god of the Underworld. Needless to say, the Underworld is a liminal space and represents mystique and transformation.
The energy of Pluto itself is associated with death and rebirth. It’s an intense and somewhat frightening energy, as one of the things we humans tend to fear the most is death, even when we are talking about death metaphorically rather than literally.
The fact that Scorpio is ruled by Pluto tells you that your Scorpio guy is not afraid of intensity or danger. He’s capable of staring into the abyss without losing his nerve. He’s principled and will stay true to his own innermost convictions and feelings in the face of adversity and resistance.
Pluto is a transformative energy that burns with such intensity that you cannot help but notice it when you are around a Scorpio. Scorpios usually have an alluring and almost electrifying aura.
Being ruled by Pluto absolutely prohibits Scorpio from being superficial or pollyannaish. On the contrary, his very nature dictates that he must develop and process deep and intense feelings.
Scorpio is symbolized by a scorpion
Every star sign has as symbol, and for Scorpio that symbol is a scorpion with its stinger held aloft and ready to strike.
Symbolically the scorpion has a wide variety of different connotations, both good and bad. A scorpion can represents determination, power, intensity, survival instinct, sexual desire, and of course danger.
One of the most important symbolic meanings of the scorpion is that it is essentially a peaceful creature that will only attract you if it feels threatened. However, if you do happen to provoke a scorpion, you are unlikely to survive your mistake.
Of course, none of this is to say that Scorpio men are particularly prone to violence. What it means is that Scorpio men respond particularly badly to hurt and betrayal. If you are in a serious relationship with a Scorpio man and you cheat on him, be assured that he will never forgive you. No matter how entangled your lives may have become, such a betrayal will be the end of your relationship.
What a Scorpio man is looking for in a relationship
In order to be able to read your Scorpio crush, you will have to not only have an understanding of who he is but also of what he wants – his motivations.
If you are uncertain of whether your Scorpio guy likes you as more than a friend, here are a few pointers that may help you gain more clarity:
Deep emotional connection
If a Scorpio man isn’t actively working on deepening the emotional bond and connection between the two of you, he isn’t interested in you romantically. It’s as simple as that.
While some star signs like to keep flirting light and airy, Scorpios want to establish a deep bond in the early stages of a relationship. Scorpios are not afraid of commitment, but they do want to take their time and slowly decide whether they are with the right person.
For Scorpio, there can be no romance without a very strong degree of emotional compatibility and connectedness. In other words, if you and your Scorpio crush are only laughing and joking together but he isn’t asking you about your dreams, your fears, your thoughts, it is because he only sees you as a friend or an acquaintance with no romantic potential.
Scorpio men are extremely passionate, and one of the primary things they are looking for in a prospective romantic partner is great sexual chemistry.
Because Scorpio men often hide feelings, sex is one of the few ways in which a Scorpio man is able to express himself without inhibitions. If a Scorpio man loves you, it is vital for him to be able to express his love physically, through physical touch and sex.
If you have ever dated Scorpio men in the past, you will already know this. For the rest of you, here’s a truth.
No matter how close you get to a Scorpio man, he will always crave and need plenty of alone time. Because of this inherent need, a Scorpio man simply cannot abide a clingy partner. To be truly compatible with a Scorpio man, you need to be able to stand on your own two feet, to keep yourself entertained, and to make your own decisions.
Despite their (largely undeserved) bad boy image, Scorpio men do not take kindly to dishonesty or betrayal. They don’t like to play games either.
So, if you want to get into a romantic relationship with a Scorpio man, you better approach him with absolute honesty.
Scorpio men tend to be most compatible with these zodiac signs
It goes almost without saying that Scorpio men are more likely to be more compatible with some of the other zodiac signs than with others. Knowing your own star sign and how it matches up with his gives you yet another way of gauging the potential of the two of you developing a mutually satisfying relationship.
Fellow water signs
Out of all the zodiac signs, Scorpio usually finds his true love in a fellow water sign. It is easy to comprehend why this is.
All water sign natives place enormous importance on love and romance, and they all feel deeply and intensely. In other words, they are speaking the same language when it comes to developing romantic bonds with others.
Scorpio-Scorpio is an intense and harmonious match. Two Scorpios together will be able to share deep feelings as well as grow together. In most cases, the chemistry will be off the charts, too.
Scorpio with Cancer is a fantastic match. In fact, a Cancer – gentle, nurturing, private, devoted – could be Scorpio’s ideal mate. Scorpio and Pisces is another harmonious match characterised by shared values and similar desires.
While a Scorpio man may develop feelings and be very attracted to either of the fire signs, the pairing is often doomed to failure right from the start. However, while it last it can be quite the adventure.
A young Scorpio man is much more likely to fall for a fire sign than a Scorpio man who is a little more mature and self-aware. The reason is simple. A young Scorpio just embarking on his romantic life will be drawn in by the allure and magnetism of a fire sign, while an older Scorpio has probably been on that particular emotional rollercoaster before and knows what to expect.
This is not to say that a Scorpio-fire sign romance is guaranteed to crash and burn. In some cases, it can last, but only if the two people involved are willing to really work on it.
Scorpio with Aries is an unlikely match, as these two are simply too different. However, Scorpio and Leo may have insane chemistry and might attempt to build a relationship based on it.
Finally, Scorpio with Sagittarius have a lot to offer each other. In this pairing, both have a lot to learn from each other, and they get on like a house on fire, at least in the beginning. Conflict are inevitably going to arise if there is even a shred of dishonesty or secrecy between them.
A romantic relationship between a Scorpio and an air sign can be quite volatile, because their value systems and ways of navigating in the world are so fundamentally different. A Scorpio man is governed by his heart, while all of the air signs are governed by their heads.
Scorpio gets on great with Gemini, as long as we are talking merely friendship. Gemini is outgoing, funny and intelligent, and more than capable of attracting Scorpio’s attention. However, when it comes to establishing deeper feelings and getting to know each other on a more profound level, a Scorpio man will usually find himself disappointed in Gemini’s reluctance to plummet the depths.
Libra is one possible exception to the rule of thumb that a Scorpio man shouldn’t date an air sign. Like Scorpio, Libra is a fixed sign, which means that Libra is balanced, harmonious, diplomatic and independent. These qualities appeal to Scorpio and ensures that the two of them have some common ground to stand on and potentially build on. In the Scorpio-Libra pairing, both partners will be in awe of each other while viewing the other as a complete enigma. This is not necessarily a bad thing.
Finally, Scorpio with Aquarius is almost certainly going to end in tears. While Scorpio and Aquarius may complement each other well as creative collaborators or even as friends, a romance between the two seems unlikely to last. The very things that Scorpio wants most in a relationship – trust, exclusivity, commitment – Aquarius is usually unable and unwilling to promise.
Earth signs often make suitable and loyal partners for any of the water signs, including the Scorpio male.
Like the water signs, the earth signs tend to value romance and want to build a long-lasting, strong relationship. Flings are of little or no interest.
The earth signs value security, structure and achievement. When paring up with an earth sign, a Scorpio man is often made to feel secure, relaxed and valued.
Scorpio with Capricorn is an unlikely but strangely perfect match. These two signs both like to take things slow in the beginning and are in no rush to either commit or open up to each other. However, when they do, a lifelong romance might blossom from their connection. Scorpio and Capricorn both value physical contact and affection, and both value honesty and sincerity very highly.
Scorpio and Taurus is another wonderful match. These two signs, despair their differences, are going to find themselves on the same page when it comes to a lot of things. Both keep a tight inner circle of people they love and trust – and both are capable of loving and trusting completely. Loyalty is one of Taurus’s key values, and this is something Scorpio can get onboard with.
Finally, Scorpio with Virgo is another viable match. These two share a desire to connect on a deeper level, both physically, emotionally and spiritually. Both value honesty and clarity, and have the potential to forge a lasting romantic bond where both partners are able to be their true selves around each other.
Conclusion: How to be sure this is is more than just a casual relationship
If you have been going through our list of signs a Scorpio man is developing strong feelings for you and have been able to nod in recognition at all or at least most of them, it means that your Scorpio love interest is indeed developing deep feelings for you.
Because Scorpio men like to take things slow and feel in control, the best thing you can do is to let him set the pace for the development of your relationship. Of course you can take initiatives too, but don’t rush or speed things up. He needs to reach his own conclusion, and if you are reading all of his subtle signals correctly, he is already in the process of catching feelings.
Scorpio men make fantastic romantic partners as they offer romance, devotion and excitement all rolled up in one. However, if you are unwilling to commit to a serious and exclusive relationship, you should be very clear and upfront with your Scorpio guy about this. While it almost certainly isn’t what he wants to hear, he’ rather know the score before a serious relationship develops than end up getting hurt and disappointed.
The way to a Scorpio man’s heart isn’t a shortcut, but the map you need to get there is actually rather simple. Just be honest and sincere in all of your dealings with him. Don’t mislead or play games with him – and whatever you do, don’t betray him. Scorpio men fall for women (or men, if they’re gay or bi) that are honest and real.
When a Scorpio man falls in love, he falls hard. This is something any prospective romantic partner of a Scorpio male should know and respect. Because he gets deeply emotionally invested, a Scorpio man cannot afford to put his heart in the hands of the wrong person.
By the same token, if you are the right person form him, he will trust you with his heart and reward you with undying loyalty and affection.
