It can be very puzzling when the mysterious Scorpio man suddenly becomes distant.
Having known for their depth, passion, and loyalty, it’s easy to feel startled and unsure about how to respond.
Fear not, here are some remarkable ways you can navigate your relationship when your Scorpio man decides to retreat into his shell.
1. Ask what’s wrong
A simple yet essential first step – just ask him if something is bothering him.
While Scorpio men can be pretty guarded, your effort can be the key to unlocking the mystery behind his distance.
It can also be the best chance at starting a conversation that could help him open up to you in this moment.
2. Listen to him carefully if he wants to talk
In case he decides to share his thoughts, be all ears. Really listen and make sure he feels heard and understood.
Scorpio men appreciate depth and empathy in communication, so make sure you’re conscious of how he is receiving your response.
3. Show understanding of his feelings
Whether he talks or not, empathize with him. He needs to feel that you care and can give the emotional support he seeks at this moment.
That doesn’t mean you have to agree with him on everything he says.
You shouldn’t fight either, but make sure he knows that your intentions are pure and full of understanding.
4. Give space if needed – Respect his boundaries
Knowing when to back off and give your Scorpio man space may actually bring him closer sooner.
Scorpios tend to value their alone time, so don’t fret if he needs to be away for a while.
It’s important to remember that respect is key in any relationship.
Show your Scorpio man that you’re not trying to control him or keep him from doing what he needs to do.
5. Avoid pushing him away – Don’t pressure him
Pressuring a Scorpio will only make him retract. Be gentle and let him feel no rush or judgment from you.
Let him know that you’re there for him if he needs a shoulder to lean on or just someone to talk to, but don’t force him to open up if he doesn’t feel ready.
The more pressure you put on him, the more distant he’ll become.
6. Don’t take it personally
Understand that his distance is, in most cases, not a reflection of you.
Scorpios often have internal battles that need resolving, so try not to make it about your relationship.
Give him time and space to work through the issue without making a fuss.
7. Don’t be clingy
Being too clingy will make things worse.
Trust that your Scorpio man will appreciate your independence as much as his own.
Don’t try too hard to help him, sometimes he may not be ready to share his thoughts with you yet.
8. Let him come to you
As a Scorpio man’s trust and reassurance grow, he will naturally feel comfortable enough to share with you again.
Remember to remain patient and understanding and let him come to you when he’s ready.
9. Show patience and trust
Speaking of patience, trust that everything will work out. True connections withstand tests, and Scorpios usually come back stronger and more committed to you.
Although things may seem bleak now, trust that your bond will overcome this hurdle. Showing your trust in him will encourage him to do the same.
10. Avoid being jealous or possessive
Scorpio men can sense insecurity, and jealousy is a major turn-off.
Trust the bond you’ve built and try not to be too controlling in your relationships.
This will not only help you overcome his distance but also make your relationship even stronger.
Remember that it’s not your fault and there are things you can do to make things better.
Talk to him if he is willing to open up and suggest activities that can help you re-connect with each other, such as going for a walk, or watching a movie together.
11. Reassure him of your love
Even a distant Scorpio craves love and reassurance. Let him know you love and care for him, without overdoing it.
Let him know that you will be there for him when he needs it, no matter what. This can help bring him feel more comfortable to open up to you.
12. Avoid arguments & fights
The last thing you want is a heated argument with an emotionally volatile Scorpio.
Prioritize peace and calm, and address issues when you’re both in the right headspace.
Too often we try to get answers in our relationships right away, and cause arguments because of it.
Take your time, and give him room to think through things before coming to his own conclusions.
13. Take time for yourself
Don’t forget that you’re important, too.
Use the time when he’s not in a good headspace or when you’re apart to look after yourself and cultivate personal growth.
Work on passion and interest that you might enjoy so that you don’t get dragged down by the situation.
This will help you stay grounded and in a better emotional state when he is ready to re-engage with you.
14. Let him know you care
Showing your Scorpio man that you care through thoughtful gestures can make a difference. However, don’t smother him with overwhelming attention.
Little presents, small compliments, and messages can make a big difference. Maybe he enjoys certain foods or something else that you can surprise him with.
15. Allow him to express himself
As he starts opening up, let him express his emotions at his own pace. Scorpio men guard their secrets carefully, so be grateful for whatever openness he shows you.
Try to be understanding of his feelings and offer strong support as he shares with you.
