Men born between October 23rd and November 21st fall under the zodiac sign of Scorpio, represented by the scorpion. The scorpion is considered to be very dangerous in the wild, striking to kill with its tail.

Considered to be a powerful sign, Scorpio men can be moody and dark, but very sexy. It is a dramatic sign and thought to be quite unique. Certain traits of Scorpio, such as being compulsive or obsessive can be seen as being negative when taken out of context. Scorpios are considered by many to be particularly attractive. 

Part 1: Scorpio Man Traits


Charming and mysterious

Scorpio is thought to be the most mysterious of people out of all of the zodiac signs. Scorpios have a piercing gaze that can cause anyone who falls under it to feel exposed and caught off-guard. Scorpios are very deep and keep a good deal of themselves hidden, even while they are very good at reading people. It is this mysteriousness that makes Scorpio men very charming and attractive to women.


Introverted and secretive

Scorpios do not trust easily, making them secretive and rather introverted. They keep things close to the vest and won’t even divulge their secrets to the closest members of their inner circle. Scorpios can be quite talkative and social with others, but they never reveal anything about themselves.



Scorpio men are thought to be the most passionate sign, and not just when it comes to love and romance. Scorpios are passionate about everything they do and enjoy and will throw themselves into a pet project completely. While considered to be the best lovers, pulling out all of the stops of romance, Scorpio men hate just as passionately as they love.


Soft and tough

It is the Scorpio’s passionate ways that make him soft and deeply emotional on the inside while projecting a tough and resilient exterior for the world. It is this rigid and calm face that can make Scorpio men seem unapproachable. These deeply emotional and passionate men do not want to be hurt and will protect themselves from the possibility. 


Intelligent and emotional

Scorpio men are notoriously passionate, making them very emotional. Sometimes this can lead them to make decisions based on their emotional response to a situation. Bet Scorpios are also very intelligent and can step back from a situation and look at it from a logical perspective and make reasonable decisions. But being so emotional as well as logical, once a Scorpio’s mind is made up, nothing can change his mind. 


Powerful and strong

Scorpios exude power and this attracts them to power, as well as attracting power to them. Because of their secretive nature, however, Scorpios do not seek the limelight or excessive amounts of attention. They are strong and powerful but prefer to act from the shadows and not draw attention to themselves.



Being emotional and passionate can cause a Scorpio man to draw into himself when analyzing a situation and deciding how to act. They prefer to be left alone while contemplating and do not want to be interrupted. This gives the Scorpio an aura of moodiness because when interrupted he becomes easily irritated. Scorpios are actually very friendly people. 


Mature and wise

It is not readily understood why, but Scorpios are thought to be very mature for their ages and wise beyond their years. Maybe it is their intelligence or their depth of character that makes this so. 



Scorpios have goals they wish to achieve in life, even if they don’t tell anyone what they are due to their secretive nature. Scorpios are very ambitious and will do whatever they need to attain their goals. This means that Scorpio men can have high standards for themselves and the people around them. This ambition doesn’t necessarily revolve around monetary success. Scorpios can be very spiritual people and want their lives to be full of meaning as well as satisfaction.



Scorpio men can be very warm and friendly people and care for the people in their lives very deeply. But do not cross a Scorpio. One of the few negative traits, if a Scorpio feels he has been wronged by you in some way, chances are that he will never forgive you or forget what you did. Scorpios have been known to hold a grudge and seek revenge.


Additional traits

Scorpio men can find falling in love difficult because he is not shallow. Scorpios can have a sarcastic and biting sense of humor if you don’t know them well enough, and it can be taken the wrong way. Scorpios can be some of the most loyal people you will ever encounter, as well as the most serious. Scorpio men like discipline and order in their lives but do not necessarily like following another person’s rules and may rebel against authority.

Part 2: Compatibility with Other Zodiac Signs

Aries: March 21st to April 20th

Scorpio can be possessive, so the natural flirt that is Aries is not a good fit. While they may share a lot of chemistry and have a deep attraction, the personalities of Aries and Scorpio are too different and will clash.

Taurus: April 21th to May 20th

Taurus and Scorpio will share a deep respect and loyalty towards each other in a relationship. Beware though, both signs can be stubborn causing arguments to occur frequently.

Gemini: May 21st to June 21st

Gemini women are naturally flirtatious and outgoing people and the possessive Scorpio will not like that at all. He will also think her shallow due to her flighty nature.

Both Scorpio and Cancer are passionate and emotional which will translate well into their relationship. They are both loyal and will feel secure in each other’s company.

Leo: July 23rd to August 22nd

Leos like flattery which may seem shallow to a Scorpio. Since both signs are dominant personalities, there will be a lot of struggle for control in the relationship.

Virgo: August 23rd to September 22nd

Scorpios may make Virgo women feel overwhelmed by their intense personalities. If both partners are willing to compromise, they can have a fulfilling relationship.

Libra: September 23rd to October 22nd

Scorpios are more serious in nature while Sagittarius tends to be a free spirit, enjoying a wide circle of friends. 

Capricorn: December 22nd to January 19th

Part 3: Tips for Dating a Scorpio Man

Scorpio men enjoy being desired and admired, as well as pursued by the opposite sex. If you wish to attract a Scorpio man, play up your intelligence and interest in different subjects and things. Keep in mind that Scorpio men like an aura of mystery so don’t dress too provocatively. Leave things to the imagination. If you are already in a relationship with a Scorpio remember that honesty is very important. Don’t give him a reason to doubt your loyalty. Once you have wronged them, you will never be able to regain his trust again. On a lighter note, Scorpio men can become bored easily, so always keep him guessing.

  • Never let a Scorpio man feel neglected when it comes to sex.

  • Don’t ever flirt with other men. Scorpios are very jealous.

  • Give him the space to calm down if he becomes angry.

  • Scorpio men sometimes like to be left alone. It’s just in their nature. Give them time.

    I am a happy, loving Aquarius and I must say I am attracted to and always seem to attract Scorpio men. I believe it is because I am more of an intellectual reeling in Scorpio accidentally and then the Scorpio brings the passion and affection. This part, I love and want to be around forever. On the flip side, Every Scorpio I have been with either cheated on me or I found out they had a girlfriend and cheated on their girlfriends with me. It is a terrible thing to find out and one found, I left quickly . They want to be the spotlight of your life and if you ever show a pinch of weakness, they will eat your heart alive and walk away. Also, Scorpio men will tell you whatever you want to hear in order to get what they want. Yes, they are very honest, but manipulative in their deliverance. To me all scorpio men want a challenge and lots of arguments and high intense crazy moments. It's crazy. They want to know everything about you but you may never ever know half of what they have going on. They talk a lot but watch out. It's only what they want you to hear and digress from the major situations. I love Scorpio men but I would never suggest to date one. They are GREAT loving caring friends. They will give you everything. Not their last though. But they will get enough to take care of them first, then what they have left over, they will give effortlessly

    Cancer with a Scorpio husband. They are complex creatures that need a lot of understanding, but at the same time they need to know you are not weak.

    @virgoprincess Did you ever heart about ying and yang or dualism? For example: There is a thin line between love and hate. There is always the possiblity things get nasty. You have a lot to learn, "princess"
  • KobeFeb.16 05:57
    Being a male Scorpio I will say this article was 100% true
  • taurusloverDec.19 14:35
    @Virgoprincess I'm a Scorpio female and although I've never encountered a Virgo male whom I was interested in, I see you have encountered my sign. I just want to apologize for whatever you may have gone through just on behalf of us Scorpios. I'm a bit obsessed with astrology, and your mate unfortunately was not a true representative of the scorpion. We are actually quite loyal signs, that is not to say we do not stray (I believe all signs have this ability) but once we have committed to our partners (apparent only through either our obsessive, possessive, or overly concerned nature for you and nothing more) we are amongst the loyalest of the signs. I've had relationships were I cheated the whole time but never demonstrated any sign of jealousy/possessiveness for him despite the emotional attachment which is strange for my nature. I've also had a relationship with my opposite the Taurus that scarred me so badly I'm up at 6am reading our zodiac compatibility, but in this one my jealously was so bad I was obsessesive and it nurtured the darker side of my personality. I guess my purpose here was to inform you Virgo that if your Scorpio partner is not displaying any type of protective personality or if they are not the aggressive type, then my fall back would be the bedroom, if they are not the same sexually as before, take it from that Scorpio has CHECKED OUT of that relationship. We are known to stubbornly cling on to an emotional attachment because we are fixed signs and if the other two items are no longer present in the relationship we may stay around for the attachment. Scorpios are just sadly misunderstood by others. I will end on this note though, and I dated my sign for two years, a Scorpio will NEVER strike you or mistreat you first or for what they feel is "no reason". We cling on to you with the claws first and if you mistreat that powerful love we then return with the stinger in doing so reciprocating hurt we felt x10. So if your Scorpio mistreated you, you may want to look back because I'll bet you hurt his feelings at some point without realizing it and we scorpios hold grudges no doubt. P.S. it also sounds like your guy was highly unevolved. We are the only 3 totem sign in the zodiac, scorpion-eagle-dove. He sounds like a carnal unevolved Scorpion and although I hate to pass judgment I do have a higher expectation for behavior from scorpios because we understand the ugly and the beauty of human nature inately.

    Not true. Scorpio man are nasty violent evil people trust me I was with a Scorpio man for 3 years. Never pleased me never did anything but sit on his broke behind and cheat ever day while abusing me
  • virgoprincessDec.9 02:54
    I wanted to read about Scorpio i thought it would give me closser to all the abuse i recieved from a Scorpio man, but these people who wrote the article clearly havea lot to learn. Yes he is ddangerous and not to be reckoned with but they left out that they r careless nasty violent very monsterouse, and defenalty not faithfully what's that about.. constantly cheating and other lyrics caring about parting and getting with new girls while he leaves hisgirlfriend at home uUn loved to the core untouched for years bruzed and battered after he demands that she pleases his need for his own pleasure while she gets nothing in return but a leftalone all weekend while he iis out on drugs n partying pretending he is a nice broke but hiding that he is a real nasty piece of work. That's the only secret side of him they keep saying a Scorpio man is carefully to show who he really is its only be cause who he really is a monsters at least.
  • virgoprincessDec.9 02:45
    Only some true. I was with a Scorpio man for about 3 years. He was evil nasty violent. And in the bedroom horrible I could only recall about three in all those years that he eased me in the bedroom, every other time he was b depending for his own pleasure not I would get assaulted if I did the give him exactly what he wanted every time, and he would always do the total opposite of what I needed to feel loved. I was left out ib b the cold leterlly ...He kicked me outside in b the middle of the night in only my nickels in the pouring rain after waking me up by pulling my hair. I found none of this article helpful , he was a lazy low life druggo who was evil and nasty of lying thing he cared about was cheating on me and his one night stands so I would say a Scorpio is all about drugs and see with different girls. And that's all they r good for.
  • ChrisAug.6 14:34
    @ : Im sorry you had an A-Hole. Im a Scorpio. I'm not nasty, or violent. I'm the complete opposite. I love to give pleasure to a woman. That gives me pleasure. I could never assault my partner. That's wrong, and not a true Scorpio. Im very passionate. Love to listen. Love my children. Love life. I think your man was a Crab, and not a true Scorpio.
  • Adeola PieroOct.12 17:15
    This article is a fact about Scorpio men and I happen to be one.
  • MindfulMermaidOct.1 02:42
    As a Pisces woman I was stung by my first scorpion male at 32yr. It left such a mark that when I encounter a second one 10yrs later I became a willing prey. Devour and be devoured. White hot.
