When a Scorpio Man Has Feelings For You: 13 Signs

The Scorpio man tends to be pretty straightforward, so it’s not difficult to spot the signs he has feelings for you.

Scorpios were born between October 23rd and November 21st. They’re known in the Zodiac for being mysterious, independent, and intense.

Because Scorpios can bring that air of mystery, it can be hard to know when a Scorpio man has feelings for you. 

Let’s take a look at some of both the obvious and the subtle signs that this man has fallen for you.

What follows are a few signs a Scorpio man is genuinely into you.

1. He Pursues You

Scorpios are known for taking the initiative. If a Scorpio man has feelings for you, he’s going to pursue you.

He’s not the kind to wait around and not let you know.

He’s going to initiate contact, ask you out, and make his intentions clear. 

If he’s not pursuing you, he’s not interested. His pursuit is an obvious sign he’s into you — just as his lack of pursuit is a clear sign that he’s just not that into you.

He doesn’t fall in love easily. He’s far too cautious for that. If he falls for you, it’s because he trusts you and thinks you’d be a strong partner.

2. He Gets Jealous

Scorpio men are incredibly jealous. They experience retroactive jealousy where they get jealous about past partners, but really, they experience every kind of jealousy. They tend toward being possessive.

While he’ll have to work to keep this quality from sabotaging his relationships, if he shows hints of jealousy, it’s because he’s developed feelings for you.

Does he act sensitive to your relationship with exes or male friends? Is he hyperaware of other people showing romantic interest in you?

These jealous flare ups are proof that he’s interested in a romantic relationship with you and doesn’t want to see or imagine you with anyone else.

3. He Opens Up to You

Scorpio men aren’t all that trusting. They’re cautious, and they don’t just invite everyone into their inner circle.

One way that the Scorpio man shows that he has feelings for you is the fact that he opens up to you and shares more about his inner world. 

Has he revealed something private about himself? This shows trust, which is practically a declaration of love from a Scorpio.

Take notice of when he shares with you and be sure to give him your undivided attention when this happens. He’s showing you a piece of himself not everyone sees. 

4. He’s Protective of You

The Scorpio man who has feelings for you will show protective tendencies. He’ll walk you to your car or to your door, and he’s going to want a text to know that you made it home safe.

He feels protective because he cares.

This is often a sign that he has feelings for you. While he’ll be protective of his friends because he’s deeply loyal, he shows a special sort of protection for lovers and romantic interests.

This is one of the more subtle signs that he’s developed deeper feelings. 

5. He Gives You His Full Attention

The Scorpio man can be intense. He feels everything deeply. If he’s falling for you, he’ll give you his full, undivided attention. His focus will be entirely on you when you’re together.

This makes the Scorpio man a great date.

He’s not the kind of guy who will check out other attractive people in your presence. He’s a good listener, and he truly cares about what you’re saying. He’ll even show it later when he remembers the little details.

6. He’s Vulnerable with You

The Scorpio man is known to be both a lover and a fighter. His feelings are intense, and when he loves you, he’s going to fight for that connection.

That’s no surprise. What might be surprising is that he’ll reveal his vulnerable side to you, too. He’ll share his fears, insecurities, and flaws with you. 

You might not realize how big of a deal this is for the Scorpio man. He doesn’t share this with just anyone.

If he’s opened up to you, you can be sure he’s fallen in love with you. Otherwise, he wouldn’t open up about sensitive subjects. 

7. He Has Deep Conversations with You

The Scorpio man doesn’t care about small talk.

Honestly, his thoughts are as deep as his feelings, and he prefers to take deep dives into conversations rather than shallow sweeps of a particular topic.

Because he favors deeper conversations, you might not recognize this as a subtle sign he’s into you.

Just because he likes deep conversations doesn’t mean he wants to have them with just anyone. If he’s choosing you for these conversations and reaching out to hear your thoughts, he clearly has feelings for you. Otherwise, he wouldn’t bother. 

8. He Introduces You to His Inner Circle

One of the signs a Scorpio man has feelings for you is he wants to introduce you to his inner circle.

He’ll want you to meet close family and friends so he can show you off. He’ll find a way to make that happen so that you have the chance to meet the other people who matter to him.

And he’ll also be public about his relationship with you. The Scorpio man may be private and reserved, but that doesn’t mean he won’t post pictures of the two of you snuggled up.

He doesn’t care who knows you’re together, and that’s partly because of his possessiveness but partly because he’s proud to be with you and wants his people to know it. 

9. He Makes Intense Eye Contact

The Scorpio man can make pretty intense eye contact. It can be overwhelming and even intoxicating if you aren’t used to it. He doesn’t look at everyone like that. 

Consider it a clue that he’s into you. He wouldn’t keep catching your eye and holding that contact if he didn’t feel a powerful connection to you.

This is one of the ways he’s letting you know that he sees you and that you have his full attention. 

10. He Makes You a Priority

One of the main signs a Scorpio man has feelings for you, is he makes you aa priority.

However, if he never seems to have time to talk or takes forever to respond to a text, he’s not feeling the connection. It’s pretty cut and dried with this Zodiac sign.

While love languages can differ even among those sharing the same celestial sign, it’s usually a good sign if a Scorpio prioritizes you.

When he makes the time, you’ll know you’ve engaged his heart. He won’t do this for just anyone.

11. He Wants to be Exclusive

You know the Scorpio man is loyal, jealous, and possessive, so it’s unsurprising that he wants his relationships to be exclusive when he’s finally ready to commit.

He’ll push for exclusivity as soon as he realizes he’s caught feelings because he doesn’t want to risk losing you to someone else. 

The connection he feels with you is so powerful he won’t take it for granted. Instead, he’ll want to update that relationship status or get on the same page about dating exclusively.

He may even hint around first to see if you’re seeing anyone else before pushing for you to see only him. He really caress that much.

12. He’s Passionate with You

If you’ve ever dated a Scorpio, you already know that the intensity spills over into other amorous activities. They don’t just pursue you with a white-hot passion. They show that passion in the bedroom, too.

If you know, you know. The Scorpio man is passionate and sensual, and you’ll get to see that entire side of him if he’s developing feelings for you.

He won’t phone in your interactions. He’ll bring his A-game, and you can expect his full attention to be on pleasing you. 

13. He Wants a Future with You

This is one of the most important signs that a Scorpio man has feelings for you.

The Scorpio man doesn’t just give you his attention, share his secrets, and impress you with his passion; he also says things to let you know that he sees a future for the two of you.

He wants that, and he doesn’t hesitate to let you know that he’s planning for next week or next month or even next year.

As secretive as his reputation might be, the Scorpio man is pretty straightforward with his feelings if you know what to look for.

If he wants a future with you, he’ll let you know. If he never, ever talks about a future, he doesn’t see one with you. Listen to what he says, but pay attention to what he does, too.

You’ll hear him say it, and then he’ll back it up with action because he actually means it. It’s not just the thing he says to everyone he dates.

The Scorpio Man — A Few Words of Caution

The Scorpio man can make a strong partner. He can also be a powerful enemy. One of the pitfalls in this star sign’s personality is that he can hold a grudge like no other.

His jealousy, possessiveness, caution, and fierce loyalty can tilt into some pretty intense and disturbing behavior if he doesn’t keep it under control. If you betray him in any way, you can be sure you’ve made an enemy for life.

Here’s the thing though: as hard as the Scorpio fights, he makes up just as intensely. If you screw up with a Scorpio, don’t think that’s all she wrote.

You just might need to win him back over so you can get to the part where you make it all up. It’s possible — assuming your betrayal wasn’t so over the top that forgiveness is unlikely.

Unintentionally hurting his feelings can be overcome but sleeping with his best friend might be a bit too much to ask of him or anyone to forgive.

Also, consider the type of Scorpio you’re dating. If he’s not healthy, it doesn’t matter how many good traits accompany his Zodiac sign. He’s not going to be a healthy partner.

His traits are possibilities, but he’s the only person who can step into that power and own it. 

Let me tell you this

As a person who once dated an abusive Scorpio, I can tell you that all those intense qualities can also be a relationship’s downfall with a toxic individual.

The jealousy and possessiveness can lead to controlling behaviors, and the intensity of his attention can become dangerous.

It’s good to know how to tell if a Scorpio has feelings for you, but it’s up to you to decide if the Scorpio in question is good for you and the life you’re creating. You’re the only one who can make that decision — and deal with the consequences. 

The Scorpio man won’t fall for everyone he ever dates. He’s far too cautious for that. If he does fall for you, you’ll see the evidence in everything he says or does.

Some signs will be so subtle you may write it off as just being another way he’s a good guy. Other signs are so obvious that they’re hard to ignore. 

Because he appreciates authenticity, if you don’t have feelings for him, just let him know directly. It’s the kindest thing you can do, and he’ll respect your honesty.

If you do return his feelings, know that he has the capacity to be a powerful partner — one who will show up for you, listen to you, support you in your goals, and champion you every step of the way.
