This guy is intense, passionate, and driven, but at the same time, he is also gentle, kind, and compassionate. The perfect lover, in my opinion!

When A Scorpio Man Says I Love You, Does He Really Mean It?

You can say a lot about a Scorpio man, but when it comes to love, he takes it really seriously. This guy isn’t joking around when he is in a relationship with a woman. He knows what he feels and he knows how important this is.

When a Scorpio man says “I love you” to a woman, he means it. He just isn’t the type of guy to say these strong words without actually feeling that way. He hates fakeness and phony people, so he isn’t about to become one of them any time soon.

However, a Scorpio man can be quite shy and isn’t always super verbally expressive. He might just have a totally different type of love language than expressing his emotions verbally. If you see him going out of his way to give you gifts or support you emotionally, he might be showing you his love.

Remember that everyone in the world has a different type of love language, and it is important to figure out what is yours as well as your Scorpio man’s love language. This can help you to settle any confusion.

If you feel ready to say “I love you” to your Scorpio man, then you should. However, I only encourage this if you have been dating for a while now and have actually spoken about a future together. You might scare him off if you drop the L-bomb on the third date. Try your best to be rational about this, please.

Say it if you feel ready because who knows, he might be feeling it, but he might be too scared to be that vulnerable with you. Letting him know how you feel will help him feel safe with you and break down his barriers. This should help him to express how he truly feels about you.

How Does A Scorpio Man Express His Love

When a Scorpio man loves you, you will know. This guy will make you the center of his Universe! He is so passionate and so caring. The love he feels for you is palpable – you are guaranteed to feel it.

Not every Scorpio man is the same, so they all express their love in their own unique way. Some of them are a bit more forward and obvious with their love, while others are a little more shy and timid. It all depends on his unique personality.

7 Ways A Scorpio Man Shows His Love

1. He Has His Own Unique Love Signature

How Does A Scorpio Man Show Love

Not all Scorpio men react the same way when they are in love. Some of them will hold back and will just try to show their partner how he feels without too much talking behind it.

Some Scorpio men have trouble expressing how they feel and can come off as being somewhat awkward, shy, reserved, or even cold. He may also be very shy or reserved; therefore, he holds back what he feels until he cannot anymore.

Then there are Scorpio men who fall hard for a woman and will profess their undying love to her. He will give her lovely gifts, he will tell her verbally he loves her, and he will start planning a future with her in it.

When a Scorpio man loves you, he wants the whole world to know that the beautiful woman next to him is his. He is the selfish and jealous type; therefore, he wants to be really clear with the rest of the world that he is in love with HIS woman. A Scorpio man is possessive when he is in love.

Your Scorpio guy may very well depend on which personality type he tends to have. You’ll need to act accordingly in order to secure this guy’s affection for the long haul.

He is the type to test a potential partner to find out who she is, what she is capable of if he can trust her, and if she’s going to be there for him even when he’s being cold and callous at times.

Patience is definitely required with the Scorpio man. So, whether he’s outspoken and doesn’t mind telling the public what is what or he’s the shy type who doesn’t like to really put all his information out there, you’re going to need to tough it out if you want his love.

2. He Goes The Extra Mile For You

Scorpio men are known to be huge flirts, and most women find them quite irresistible. This man can give a woman one look and she will melt.  That means that he can flirt with many women but not be connected to or even interested in them. He does it for the sake of the game.

When he starts to fall for you, he falls very deeply and will show you as much. This means he will start to go above and beyond to do whatever he can for you. So, it’s definitely something much deeper than flirting. This is how a Scorpio man shows his love, by being caring.

He wants you to feel happy with him when he’s in love. He’ll do whatever he can to spend time with you. This can make him start developing possessive behavior.

He doesn’t see you as an object but he does see you as “his” and no one should ever be messing with “his” woman. If things have gone past flirting and he is now pressing to spend time with you, then he’s likely in love.

Basically, he’s being a stereotypical male when they’re trying to win the affection of their future mate. These are what you’ll see from this guy when he’s falling for you. So, how does a Scorpio man show love?

This type of behavior is exactly what he exhibits when he’s falling deeply for the right woman. He figures out he has his Soulmate and he goes for it.

3. He Might Go For It And Tell You How He Feels

As I mentioned, he gets into that mode that whatever is “his” is “his.” This means, in your case, that you are what he covets. He doesn’t want to lose you and so he’ll just go ahead and tell you how he feels.

Don’t let it freak you out, this is actually quite flattering. He’s not going to go crazy and try to dominate you. He just wants you to know that you’re the one he wants and that you belong with him.

You can decide against this, of course – but why would you? The Scorpio man is romantic and passionate. Though he can be jealous, he can also make you feel safe and loved.

So, there is always that possibility that your Scorpio guy may just go ahead and go for it if he’s truly falling for you. If he hasn’t yet, he’s either the shy type, or maybe he’s just not there yet.

One thing is for sure, you’ll know without a shadow of a doubt when a Scorpio man loves you due to how he acts and what he says to you.

4. He Acts All Confused

There are times where the Scorpio guy will get into certain moods that will make him seem as though maybe he isn’t that into you. He’ll get really hot and ready to rumble but then become cold as ice.

He’ll text you a whole bunch or call you and then suddenly, you don’t hear from him for days. This is normal behavior from him. He’s likely either trying to work out his feelings or he’s dealing with other things.

If or when he wants to tell you what it is that he’s going through, he will go ahead and open up. Love will make any Scorpio open up much more than they will with anyone else.

When he pulls this type of behavior; you’ll need to have patience with him. If he’s still showing signs of love to you, he’s not gone. He’s just going through something that he may not be ready to discuss.

He tends to lock up his feelings or issues because he doesn’t want to burden the woman he loves with his problems. Just hang in there and let him come to you when he’s ready.

5. He Will Want To Help You

Scorpio Man Showing Love By Helping

When a Scorpio man loves you, he will want you to succeed at chasing your hopes and dreams. He is, after all, attracted to you because of your ambition in life. If you’re a strong independent woman, he’ll crave you.

Whatever it is you really want to do with your life; he’ll do whatever he can to help you get there. It motivates him to work on his own goals and dreams as well. In fact; he’ll want you to help him at times.

The ultimate scenario for the Scorpio man is to have a woman at his side that will be his partner in life. You are both successful and backing each other and nurturing each other’s dreams.

If you find the Scorpio man in your life offering to help you achieve your goals, he is likely in love with you. He doesn’t help just anyone. He wants to be happy but he also wants to see you happy.

6. Jealousy & Possessive Behavior

Now, this will be more evident to others and doesn’t qualify for a low-key attitude. The Scorpio man is a jealous and possessive type. So, if you two are out together and some guy is eyeballing you, he will do something to prove you are his.

He may say something to the guy or he may grab you to kiss you passionately in front of the man to be really clear that you belong to him. So, this is more of his being loud if he needs to.

This goes for social media as well. He may see something some guy commented on your photo or post that seems a little flirty or questionable. Then he may respond to it in a way that indicates that you are off the market.

He may also private message that guy and tell him he better step off because you’re unavailable for his attention. He probably won’t be very nice about it either, to be honest.

This is the side of him that comes out and can seem “loud” in terms of how he shows his love. He wouldn’t act jealous or possessive if he wasn’t in love with you. That much is very clear.

7. He’s Verbally Open

When the Scorpio man expresses his love, he will likely tell you he loves you. He won’t do it before he’s sure or ready unless he’s immature. Clearly, if he doesn’t know whether it’s lust or love, he probably shouldn’t say anything.

Otherwise, if he knows for sure he’s in love with you then all bets are off. He won’t typically tell you this in public willingly, unless you say it first, thus, forcing him to answer.

He’s not loud about his love for you unless he feels threatened or is trying to make a statement, otherwise, he’s low-key and would prefer to keep privacy in place. As I mentioned before, many Scorpio men are on a “need to know” basis.

A Scorpio Man Silent Love — Are Scorpio Men Shy Around Their Crush?

Scorpio men are most definitely shy. These guys have hidden behind a hard shell, after all! It is funny that Scorpio men have the reputation of being these crazy party animals, when in fact they are actually rather introverted and shy.

A Scorpio man won’t express his love with grand public gestures and blast it out to the world. No, this man is a lot more covert and mysterious. He doesn’t want anybody else to know his business, he is very private.

When a Scorpio man is in love, he will express it, but in his own way, and sometimes he might need a little urge from you to show him that it is safe for him to say “I love you.”

If you happen to notice that the vibrant and social Scorpio guy you’ve been spending time with suddenly wants to spend time alone with you but is very quiet while with you, he’s probably falling in love with you

He may spend more time staring into your eyes and hoping in some way that you’ll pick up on his vibe and somehow just “know” that he’s really into you. He may be a bit slow to the punch but he’ll tell you how he feels when he feels it’s right.

This is how your shy Scorpio man will act when he loves you. So, when you’re wondering “Why is this Scorpio man shy around me?” Now you know!

Stop Worrying About Your Scorpio Man…

It can be SO painful to worry about how to make things work with a Scorpio man who won’t commit.

I know. I’ve been there with many of my friends dating Scorpio guys. I remember my very close friend crying herself to sleep at night, worried that her man would never commit to her.

She lost sleep, time, and even work hours, all because she couldn’t figure out how to capture his heart and get him to commit.

As a friend, it was hard to watch her go through that. But I knew how good he was for her, and I didn’t want her to give up on him.

Even when our other friends were telling her to move on, I could see that he was the most incredible man she had ever met.

How could she just give up on that?

But it wasn’t easy. It took a LOT of work…

She had to learn how to speak a different language… his love language <<

And it worked!! So if you are ready to sleep like a baby… Knowing your Scorpio man is MADLY in love with you… And never feel anxious about him again…

We’ve grown up together, and were in elementary school together. I first met him in fourth grade. Even then, he was teasing me, playing at recess with me, and giving me small gifts. We caught back up with one another in college, and talked together often in between classes, catching up with our lives. We never actually dated, but there was always a clear chemistry between us beyond just friends. It’s been about four years since I’ve seen him, but we are friends on Facebook. He friended me about a year ago. He reached out to me a few weeks ago, asking how I had been. He then proceeded to ask for my number, which I obliged and gave to him. We texted all night into the morning, and he just kept asking me questions. He wanted to keep going with the questions, saying he wants to figure me out and know more about me, but I actually eventually fell asleep. A week later, I reached out to him, and he was the same with asking lots of questions. On both occasions, it seemed like he was going to ask me out, but fell short. I was waiting for him to do that, but he never did. He was very flirty and his text exchanges. It’s been two Weeks, and I have not heard anything from him. I put a picture of myself on Facebook last week, and noticed he liked my picture. Is this guy just really shy, or is he stringing me along? It seems as though he likes me, but can’t seem to act on it. I need to know if I should just let it go because he’s not interested enough, or if I should be more forward because he’s shy. I’m very extroverted, and he’s very introverted.

    1. JM,

      Asking a ton of questions is usually a sign that a Scorpio is interested in you. They don’t waste time talking to people they don’t care about. . I think eventually he will tell you how he truly feels, but you might have to be patient. He may also just be waiting for the right moment. Scorpios can sometimes be shy with expressing how they feel about you, so I would just keep that in mind. Doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings, but they feel so deeply, and there is so much risk and vulnerability involved with expressing those feelings that it can be scary for them. This can be frustrating I know. You can choose to wait it out, if he does have feelings for you eventually he will tell you. As a Pisces, I was the first one to tell a Scorpio that I had feelings for him and it ended up working out. For me, I was so confident that he had feelings for me and we were so close that I felt comfortable telling him. He told me that he had feelings too and that was that. It ended up working out. Hope this was helpful somehow!

      1. I really like what you wrote here. I’m a Pisces has been seeing a Scorpio guy for 9 months. We started off as friends but feelings have developed gradually towards him. Although I know he doesn’t tell how he feels I’m sure he has feelings towards me as well as he shows it. I’m going to tell him how I truly feels and face the fear since I can’t keep silent anymore. Needless to say your post has given me some courage to tell him how I feel. Hopefully it works out and we get into genuine relationships.

  2. I have been dating a Scorpio for a while now we stopped talking for a while but ended up back to each other again. He always offers me to work with him and says that he wants to have a baby with me. He started opening up a lot more and I absolutely adore him. He has yet to tell me that he loves me but I’m almost confident that he does.

  3. Hey I’m a Sagittarius woman interested in a Scorpio man but he has a gf and she’s is Virgo. The problem is that we have always been close, now he tells me his problems and secrets which he doesn’t do with his gf. He does love his gf but cheated a lot of times on her, he now wants something with me and is saying that with me it’s real. He says he has feelings for me and that can’t stop thinking about me. He only got intimate with his gf once and he was the one who took her virginity. I don’t know what to do, he said that he didn’t care if everyone found out about us. He wants us to wait and the next minute he wants me *now*. The Scorpio man and I are family friends, his mom is also a Virgo and his dad a Scorpio. I don’t know if what he feels for me is real, we haven’t being seeing each other these past few days but he still talks to me about his problem over the phone.

  4. My Scorpio man and I are in a new relationship and I must say, he’s already pulling on my heart strings. His gaze is intense like he is seducing my soul and then his smile. It’s hard to break away from that look he gives me with his light brown eyes. He makes me feel as if no one else in the world exists. Good morning texts to say, “Good morning beautiful”, texts throughout the day to ask how school or work is going, texts while he’s at work. He stops by after a 10-12 hour shift at work to see me for 5 minutes to give me a kiss before bed. I absolutely love the attention and affection. I’m a Pisces and he seems to really like my carefree, loving and sensitive personality and teases me because I love to learn and read. We have gone on many dates then we were intimate with each other a few times and now it’s not sexual but he will take me out on dates and he has our whole day planned out for us and we end up spending about 6-8 hours together going places and doing things but nothing sexual. He’s slowly opening up to me about his family. He’s never introduced anyone to his family before because he said they weren’t worthy but jokingly said that when he introduces me to his parents they might think I’m on drugs because I’m such a happy person all the time. He’s just too good to be true. He’s so encouraging, motivating and positive. I thought I was an encouraging, motivating and positive person until I met him. This Pisces girl is falling really hard, really fast for her Scorpio guy.

    1. Nancy I’m a Pisces 2 girl my guy is a Scorpio he just told me he love me lastnight I couldn’t b happier & the BEST PART today he’s acting like a totally different person I’m so n love.

      1. I’m a libra and my boyfriend for all most five years never tells me he loves me or never tells me how I look or do anything with me we have no comucation at all and never take me anywhere I think he cheating and have been the hole time we been together what should I do

  5. Aries woman here. Since the moment we saw each other, I was astonished by his appearance and he almost jumped from his chair. I needed to know more about him, but already in a relationship so I tried to deny my feelings. Since then we actually slowly became friends and he was always very distant and cold out of respect. I always thought he wasn’t interested in me, but over the years I learned that he actually has a crazy obsessive love for me and never stopped doing so. He just hid it very well due to the situation. I know this from his songs and behaviour now. Last few months we grew very close together, I studied the scorpio man behaviour and EVERYTHING became so clear. I think i got protected from wrongdoing all those years, cause if I knew this all before.. phew! This man is actually all I ever dreamed of and we match so perfect, it’s beyond something in this world. I know he knows and he knows I know all of that, but we sit it out and wait. His patience, respect yet dedication to me is insane! I am all he wants and he seems to be able to wait a lifetime if thats what it takes. Hard situation, but i am waiting for God’s help and signs how to handle this properly. I wouldn’t want a love this beautiful in a wrong way and he neither. But our connection is INTENSE and very emotional. I have a cancer ascendent, and Mars Pluto Scorpio so we have the same understanding of how deep a love connection should be.

    1. Hi B!

      It sounds like you’ve got a good guy who wants to see you two succeed as a fully fledged couple. That’s a wonderful thing to hear. Thank you for sharing that with me. Yes you definitely have enough in common that you understanding each other emotionally. Just be sure you keep communicating when you need to so that nothing gets lost and things get left unsaid. I wish you all the best but if you decide there are some other things you’d like to know about Scorpio, please check out my books on Scorpio Man Secrets!

  6. I’m a leo woman who was involved with a scorpio man that was in a relationship that he said he was unhappy about me and him known each other since we were children and we started messing around when became young adults we messed around off and on for years during one of our separations I got husband past away and a few months after his passing he reached out to me he told me he was always in love with me but he act so distant now I haven’t seen or heard from him in 3 months

    1. Hi Nikki!

      I would reach out to him and see how he’s doing. Then ask him what happened between you two that made him stray for 3 months. You deserve answers and you won’t know until you ask. If he still loves you then he will do whatever he can to make sure you two are back to where you were. Ask him what is on his mind and what makes him hesitant. Be kind with your words. He’s a sensitive type. Learn more about how Scorpio men think and act by checking out my books on Scorpio Man Secrets!

  7. I met a Scorpio guy in May and we clicked. We started out as friends but it is becoming more every day. I am a mature Aries woman who has to go against my emotions at times and use my brain more. Luckily I also have been a counselor so know how people “tick”.
    I too had to deal with hot/cold moments: with behavior that seems like withdrawal of plans earlier made. I am very physical and he loves to be touched and loves how I smell and dress. I learned not to be upset when he “withdraws” when we are not together and count on our magnetism when we meet. He even told me I seemed to be cool after I told him he sets the rules how we behave in public. I had to re-state that again and he realized I did what he had asked me and “ hated” it. I have surprises for him to push our relationship further but never share it with him, until the right moment and always give him and me a way out. I learned to count on “ disappointment” but do far it has not happened. And I let him know how much I like him but will not use the word “love” until he will. Aries is not known to be patient but I am because he is important to me. Your tips have helped me to understand more. Thanks for that

    1. Hi Miriam!

      I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your feedback. It’s important for me to know if my writing is helping women as it was intended. I think it’s beautiful that you’ve found a formula that works for you and your Scorpio. You’re doing a GREAT job and I’m proud that it’s working for you. I wish you all the very best but if you ever need anymore help, you can check out my guides on Scorpio Man Secrets.

  8. Wish I could hear an experience from an Aquarius female with Scorpio guy. I feel there is something but he is being too closed and secretive. I don’t know if it’s anything to do with zodiac matching issue.

    1. Hi Neha!

      Scorpio men are the kings of being closed and secretive sweetheart. They’re also untrusting which is why they are this way. You’re right though, there is often more going on but the only way to know that for sure is to have your charts compared. This would show what signs make a big difference and whether or not you two belong with each other. There is always more that meets the eye. I wish you all the very best!

  9. I am a Gemini woman and I have been having an affair with a Scorpio man for a year now. He is so into me and tells me he loves me often, and has fallen for me. We can get so well, not just physically but also mentally. We have developed a beautiful friendship. He contacted me first, and I persevered until I decided ‘why not’. I feel he hasn’t been secretive with me at all, but is definelty deep, caring and passionate, and loves conversation with me, and sex! Im always wondering how our relationship will be when I have left my husband which is very soon. Will it be the same, stronger or not as exciting? He understands that I need some freedom for awhile, and to live on my own for awhile also…he is willing to wait and understands that I need that freedom to heal…For whatever reason, I feel we were meant to meet.

    1. Hi Daphne!

      Be careful sweetheart. He may be content with the way things are as it’s safe for him to love you and not have the responsibility and actual boyfriend or husband would have. He may actually like it that he doesn’t have to commit because you’re still with your husband. Just be careful with your heart honey. Take care of yourself and make him secondary until he proves that he’s all in. I wish you all the love you deserve!

  10. Hi Anna – I have your books and they are very helpful. I had never dated a Scorpio before and started following you when I was trying to understand that one back in 2020. Fast forward to 2023 and my new relationship is also with a Scorpio Man (birthday is NOV 7) and he is the quintessential Scorpio. As a Libra woman, I know how the air and water signs can have difficulty. Your analysis has been spot on. I have never felt like this about anyone – ANYONE. Our birthday are 29 days apart and we were born in the same year – turning 50 this year. He has pursued me, helped me, encouraged me, treated me well and assured me. I just have been letting him lead. But I want to know how do I approach the “future”. I am don’t want to rush plans – that never works, but I don’t want to scare him by trying to put a “lock” on him. His actions and his words say that he loves me.

    But I also know what he has been through in relationships and it has been brutal.

    Any advice would help.
