Do Scorpio Men Like to Be Pursued?

Women chasing a man on the beach

Just because a Scorpio man enjoys women pursuing him, that doesn't mean he'll deem every woman worthy of his affections. If you're saying, "Ouch!" to that comment, you aren't alone. Many sun signs find Scorpio's self-confidence and pickiness more than off-putting, especially when it comes to choosing a mate. Air signs view Scorpio as being arrogant and too full of himself. As for Scorpio's reaction to such opinions, he simply doesn't care.

Chasing After Scorpio

Do Scorpio men like to be pursued? Absolutely! Scorpio men, like most people, love being admired and desired. This man truly enjoys being pursued by his potential mate. The excitement of the chase won't be as strong as you'd find with Aries, the natural-born warrior and hunter, but Scorpio's passionate nature will become excited over the pursuit.

Don't Play With His Heart

A word of caution is needed; don't play with his heart. If you decide to start this game, you better be prepared to see it through to the very end. Love isn't a game to Scorpio, even if he gives that appearance. Be sure you want who you're chasing before you bat that first eyelash or bestow that first smile.

Keep It Light

While role reversal is difficult for this sun sign, if Scorpio can get into the mood of being pursued, he'll quickly go with the fun of it. Keep it light for as long as you can. This won't be easy since love, sex and emotions are dominated by Scorpio's passion. You want to stir his passions and evoke his deepest desires, but only the strongest of signs can contain that emotional overflow. Earth signs are well-equipped to weather the passionate Scorpio storm since they were created to be the one element capable of molding and shaping water. However, sometimes earth signs simply stand still and allow the water to rush over them and run its course. This is an important act of love since earth lends balance to this water sign.

Who Should Pursue a Scorpio Man

Scorpio has several natural matches, and women with these sun signs may do well in pursuit of him.


Taurus is a great passionate match for Scorpio, especially his love for beautiful art objects. Taurus has a refined palate and may even be quite an accomplished gourmet cook, which will please any Scorpio man.


Virgo has an underlying passionate nature that will intrigue Scorpio and entice him to explore the inner thoughts of this virgin sign. The idea of experiencing many things anew is very alluring to him.


Capricorn should pursue Scorpio by using her innate ability to dominate with passive-aggressive tactics. Scorpio will be thrilled to be domesticated as long as he can still enjoy his expensive tastes. This may be a point of compromise for the ever-thrifty and economically-minded Capricorn.

Understanding a Scorpio Man Once You Catch Him

This water sign could best be described as the water spout you often see over oceans. He is powerful, dynamic and passionate. He knows who he is and what he wants. That's why he's so picky when it comes to a life mate and frankly, not many zodiac signs can meet his criteria.

Sex and Passion

Scorpio is as passionate as any fire sign with a powerful current constantly running just beneath the surface of what may appear to be still waters. His sex appeal is almost tangible. This man is usually very good looking and has an air of confidence that's probably his sexiest trait. Women are instantly attracted to this combination, but few can meet his expectations. He demands a woman with a lusty appetite for sex, food, wine and life in general. His standards for living are high, and his desires are just as refined as the cuisine he dines on.

More Than Good Looks

If you think Scorpio is all looks and no brain, you haven't taken the time to get to know him.

  • His interests are as broad and varied as Sagittarius.
  • He is as eclectic as Gemini and Aquarius when it comes to studying religion, collecting art, and making friends.
  • His physical stamina is equal that of the athletic Aries.
  • His appreciation for beauty is only rivaled by Libra.
  • Scorpio is all about experiencing and living life to its fullest, and he enjoys using his senses to get the most out of those experiences. This can often lead to overindulgence; it's the biggest obstacle Scorpio faces.

Deep Waters

When Scorpio feels something, you can be certain it's genuine. Don't let the outward appearance of a playboy fool you. Falling in love is a serious matter and not one that he takes lightly. He doesn't view himself as a playboy, just someone seeking his one true love. Sometimes that requires thoroughly getting to know someone. Scorpio understands that everyone has layers that must be peeled away like the proverbial onion in order to get to the authentic self. He doesn't mind spending the time and energy to get to know someone as long as that person turns out to be genuine.

The Mighty Sting

Whether or not it's intentional, woe be unto anyone who crosses this zodiac sign. Once scorned, Scorpio is deft in his retaliation. This is meted out in swift action or as a verbal lashing. Either one will slice and dice you into manageable bits that he'll promptly spit out.

Like Pursuing Like

The other water signs, Cancer and Pisces aren't the obvious pursuing types, but if a Cancer woman believes she's discovered her soul mate, she'll pursue Scorpio with the tenacity of an IRS agent wanting back taxes. Seriously, Cancer finds it difficult to accept no for an answer or give up on an ideal. Pisces will be subtle in her pursuit, so that Scorpio always believes he was the one doing the chasing. Pisces women are seductive like the mythological sirens and Scorpio will be eager to respond. Yes, this man definitely loves the chase.
