When dealing with the challenge of guessing a Scorpio man’s mind, you can rest assured you are on the same boat as many others. The stereotype of a Scorpio man being hard-to-read may not be far stretched after all, as they inherently do not show their vulnerabilities, keeping their feelings to themselves.
Secretiveness and patience are useful weapons in a Scorpio’s arsenal. They play their cards close to their chest, weighing each word that comes out of their tongue. However, such secretiveness is not due to any ill or malignant intention but more of a personality trait. This, combined with other traits, such as truthfulness, honesty, and loyalty, make them much desirable partners.
Their reserved yet confident demeanor has a certain charm to it, and to be their partner would be an exciting journey, uncovering the layers of a mysterious lover.
Now, let’s discuss some tell-tale signs a Scorpio man displays when he has feelings towards you. This is a fun and simple list of traits based on the Sun sign in Western astrology. If you want a personalized analysis of your man’s romantic interests and traits, you should get his whole birth chart studied by a professional.
21 Signs A Scorpio Man Shows When In love
1. He keeps an eye on you in a caring and protective way
Have you noticed your Scorpio man secretly glancing over at you or his glances drifting across the office looking for you? This protective behavior comes naturally to them. They tend to get drawn to the person of their interest and feel obliged to take good care of them.
2. He pursues you
One thing that makes it easy with Scorpios despite them being reserved is that when they get interested in someone, they will put in the effort to pursue that person. So you do not have to be the only one putting in all the effort. He might flirt with you or even be upfront about his feelings for you, so stay prepared.
3. He displays pangs of jealousy
Jealousy is a key personality trait among Scorpios as they tend to be protective of their love interest. Expect some sourness if he sees you too close to other prospects, or at times, even your friends.
4. He acts possessive
As expected, protectiveness and possessiveness make a Scorpio a great partner but, at times, a little difficult to manage. He would want you all to himself, and he would also do the same, giving you his full time and attention.

Besides being a good listener, Scorpios are good at keeping secrets. You trust him with your thoughts and secrets and feel secure in confiding.
13. If ignored, he would be dejected but won’t express it
Have you mistakenly not given him enough attention or outright ignored him? Be ready to face the repercussions now. Although he wouldn’t admit it to you directly, you would see clear signs of him distancing himself from you. It would need certain coaxing from your side now to bring him back to a good mood.

Is he the perfect gentleman to you, always courteous and gentle around you? It is a sign that he is putting in the effort to initiate a romantic relationship with you. He may express it through his body language and actions.
