Common Male Scorpio Characteristics

Scorpio man

Scorpio is one smooth guy, and common Scorpio male characteristics include magnetic confidence and self-awareness. This man understands himself pretty well, and he'll be pleased and flattered when you take the time to understand him too.

Scorpio Male Personality Characteristics

Scorpio's self-confidence can be an obstacle for some couples, but you can hold your own with this man if you're equally self-confident. The last thing Scorpio expects or wants from his mate is self-doubt. He needs an equal to experience the world by his side. The more common male Scorpio characteristics include:

  • Excessive jealousy
  • Inability to forgive
  • Intense
  • Competitive
  • Highly sexual
  • Poetic and brooding

Pitfalls of Overindulgence

Scorpio has a tendency to overindulge in most of life's joys. This can lead to a life of excess that can become a harmful and even life-threatening flaw if left unchecked. The Scorpio man must learn discipline; this is a nasty topic he'll resist. If he can incorporate control over some of his passionate urges, he'll emerge a stronger man for it and will enjoy a longer, more satisfying life.

Love Seriously

One thing about this sign is that when it comes to love, he isn't in it for the pure fun of it. To the Scorpio male, love is as serious as it gets. If he doesn't feel love for you, Scorpio won't ever pretend he does. Genuine feelings are the height of passion and integrity for Scorpio, and he wants to feel everything when it comes to love. He will drown himself in the throes of a passionate love affair and enjoy every second of it.

Word of Caution

Don't ever play with Scorpio's heart. Game playing is off limits when it comes to love. Before you give your heart and soul to this lover, make sure you're really serious about him. Love is intense and serious business to Scorpio. If you're just out for fun and games, pass over this one because this man will test you, and his wrath will be just as passionate as his lovemaking.

Beware of Scorpio's Sting

The scorpion is the symbol for Scorpio, and that wicked stinger tail is no myth. Scorpio can lash out and slice you in two with his bitter tirades. You'll quickly understand what a tongue lashing is all about if you give him reason to test it out on you. The scorpion sting is no fable. A Scorpio male can be vengeful if he's betrayed by his lover or discovers your feelings for him weren't real or as deep as his feelings for you. Even though he's a water sign, it can quickly become boiling water.

Intrigue and Mystery

Scorpio is enchanted by mystery and seduced by intrigue. If you can create these around you, you will quickly become the object of his passion. He won't rest until he's discovered your mystery and claimed it for his own. If you aren't prepared to face this type of intense relationship, don't accept that first date. Remember, love is the most serious thing in Scorpio's life, and it should be the same with you.

A Translation of Character

Scorpio is hardly a negative sign. In fact, many of Scorpio's popular negatives easily translate into positive traits. Consider the following:

  • He's jealous because he loves wholeheartedly.
  • He's intense because he fixates on his true love.
  • He's competitive because he strives for excellence.
  • He's brooding because he is deeply aware.
  • He's unforgiving because he's cautious.

Gifts for a Scorpio Man

Showing your affection for a scorpio man with a gift can involve some careful thought. Finding the right item to spark his interest will need to focus on his innate scorpio qualities. Some possibilities to consider include:

  • Since Scorpio men are known for overindulging and seeking the finer things in life, a high quality and stylish jacket or fashionable sunglasses are excellent choices.
  • Scorpio men are also intensely competitive and enjoy games. Great choices could be traditional strategy games like chess with a unusual gameboard and pieces or party games so he can indulge his competive spirit with a group of friends.
  • You can tweak his passionate side with a gift designed to spark a romantic interlude, such as some chocolate dipped strawberries and a champagne gift basket.
  • He'll also enjoy indulging in a spa, either alone or together with you, so a gift card to your local high-end spa will definitely be appreciated by a Scorpio man.

Reading Your Scorpio

Male Scorpios do not jump quickly into relationships. They are private and thought-driven fellows. However, once they have selected a cherished partner they tend to be fearsomely faithful. In fact, Scorpio is loyal and faithful even in the wake of opposing advice and evidence. You'll have to admit to wronging him before he'll believe it. Even then, he'll have a difficult time believing it's true. This kind of blind trust is endearing and should never be abused because it's such a rare gift that only Scorpio can give. It is also the reason why Scorpio is the least forgiving sign of the zodiac. Scorpios construct a large bubble of trust, and once it's broken, they won't be foolish enough to trust again. Treat your Scorpio's heart with care, and he will idolize you beyond what is deserved.
