Scorpio women are notoriously hard to read. Until they get to know you, they tend to hold their cards very close to their vest. So, how do you know when to approach her or when to take your relationship to the next level? Fortunately, she does give clues to let you know how she feels if you pay attention to them. Read on to learn eight signs a Scorpio woman likes you

1. She will talk to you

A Scorpio woman is not necessarily concerned about being polite or protecting your feelings. Although she is secretive in many ways, she can also be quite direct and honest when she wants to be. If a Scorpio woman does not like you, she generally will not give you the time of day. This means that if you approach her, and she responds with any warmth at all, she probably has at least some attraction to you.

It is important to realize that a Scorpio woman is quite protective of her heart. When does fall in love, she does so fully and completely. Because of this, if an adult Scorpio woman is single, she has more than likely had her heart broken at least once in her life. From this, she will have learned caution and will not give her heart so freely anymore.

This means that no matter how attracted she is to you at first, it will still be a long road before she would agree to date you.

2. She will smile at you

Normally, a Scorpio woman has a deep and penetrating look in her eyes. She is a keen judge of character, and she notices everything. Most of the time, she has a rather reserved and guarded expression. She is not one for small talk and shallow conversations exhaust her.

A Scorpio woman does not smile often, and her smiles are rarely insincere. Although a Scorpio woman is mysterious by nature, she does not feign interest or affection well. So, if she smiles at you, you can be sure that her smile is genuine. This is a very clear sign that a Scorpio woman likes you.

3. She will remember everything that you tell her

A Scorpio woman is known for having an extremely good memory, but one of the main components for memory is the ability to concentrate and pay attention. You cannot remember something if you have not paid attention to it in the first place.

When a Scorpio woman likes you, she listens to everything you tell her very closely. She will not rely on attraction alone to decide who she will date. Instead, she will ask many questions and observe a potential partner carefully.

This coupled with her natural good memory means that if she likes you, she will remember anything that you tell her for a very long time. She will also remember other details about you, such as what you were wearing when you met, or how you like your coffee.

4. She will want to go slowly

Scorpio has a reputation for being a highly sexed sign, but this is rather misleading, particularly when it comes to a Scorpio woman. A Scorpio woman craves deep emotional intimacy. This is much more important to her than mere physical pleasure.

Most Scorpio women are at least a little psychic. They can form extremely deep bonds, sometimes even deeper than they would like. Physical touch of any kind, not just sex, can open her up to the other person’s thoughts and emotions. For this reason, a Scorpio woman is generally not capable of a one-night stand.

A Scorpio woman may not understand this about herself when she is young. She very well may have learned the hard way, suffering the anguish of a broken heart when her partner did not take the relationship as seriously as she did. She will have learned from this, making her extremely cautious.

So, if you are dating a Scorpio woman, do not be disheartened if nothing seems to be happening on a physical level. She is just taking her time to be sure of you and of your relationship with her before she finds herself past the point of no return emotionally.

5. She will tell you one of her secrets

Even though a Scorpio woman is often quite mysterious, she will often disclose an embarrassing secret of hers relatively early in the relationship. This might take you by surprise, as it will be something that most people will not disclose until they have become quite close to another person.

You need to understand that this is a test. Because she is capable of such deep bonds, a Scorpio woman does not want to get close to someone only to have him leave her later. It is way too painful for her. So, if she thinks that she may be falling in love with you, she will want to disclose the worst thing about herself that she can. This way, if you decide to leave her because of it, you will do so early on, before she gets too attached.

If you are able to handle her secret and still want to be with her, she will probably be willing to allow the relationship to move to the next level.

There is a word of caution, however. Whatever you do, never, ever tell anyone else the secret she told you. If you do, and she finds out, she will see it as a betrayal. No matter how deep of a bond she has formed with you, she can sever that bond completely and finally if she thinks that she has been betrayed in any way. Once a relationship is over for her, it is over. There is no going back.

6. She will soften with you

Despite her rather hard and stand-offish demeanor with those she does not know well, a Scorpio woman can be quite soft and gentle when she falls in love. Everything about her will begin to change, including her clothes and her hairstyle.

A Scorpio woman can be incredibly romantic, and when she does fall in love, she does so fully and completely. From being rather critical, she will start to almost idolize you. You will begin to be able to do no wrong in her eyes.

She may start to even become a bit absent-minded in your presence. If this happens, it is in part because she is feeling overwhelmed by emotions. It is also in part because she has decided to let down her guard with you, and she is starting to just be herself.

Friend Zone Warning:

If a Scorpio woman is rather critical of you early in the relationship, it is no big deal. This is part of the natural process for her. On the other hand, if you have been dating for long enough that she has softened with you, and she becomes critical again, this is a bad sign. It means that she no longer considering you as a romantic interest but is instead seeing you as a friend.

7. She will relax with you

A Scorpio woman can be very serious and intense. She is a brilliant strategist and can plan far in the future. She is known for both her caution and her ability to work very hard. It is rare for her to let her guard down with anyone, and it is rarer for her to actually be relaxed.

A Scorpio woman will not relax with you until you have gotten very close. Indeed, if she does, you can be relatively confident that she is considering you as a potential husband or partner for life.

She will be willing to just sit and watch TV with you. Rather than carefully considering her words, she will become free and easy with conversation. Alternatively, she will be comfortable just being quiet in your presence. The feeling of being tested will disappear, as will the earlier sense of being idolized. You will start to become a natural part of her life.

8. She will want a permanent commitment

While a Scorpio woman does not rush into anything, her ultimate goal is a marriage or other form of permanent commitment. It is also important to remember that when a Scorpio woman marries, she does so for life. She is stable and completely loyal to a partner, and she will expect the same in return.

Despite the reputation of Scorpio in popular astrology, this sign does not handle casual relationships or flings well at all. This is especially true of Scorpio women. If you want a light relationship, a Scorpio woman is not for you. Entering into a relationship with her with anything but the best of intentions will inevitably end badly for both of you.

Popping the question:

If you are thinking of proposing to a Scorpio woman, it is important to do so at the right time. Popping the question too early will generally be met with rejection. If you leave it too long, you run the risk of losing her because she will think that you are not serious.

The best time to propose to her is after she has softened with you and when she is just beginning to relax in your presence. It is at this point that she is already thinking of you as a potential husband, and she is very likely to give you an enthusiastic “Yes!”

You will have an even better chance of success if you have thought through the details of where you will live and can answer any practical questions that she may have.

A Scorpio woman is rather conservative by nature, and she will want you to follow conventions like presenting her with a ring, preferably on bended knee. On the other hand, you do not have to break the bank to buy her ring. Rather than a super expensive ring, she will be impressed if present her with one that is thoughtfully considered and has deep symbolic meaning for both of you.
