Make the first move. In "The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need," astrologer Joanna Martine Woolfolk states that Taurus men who cannot make up their minds need women to make the first move. This is as true for women who want to win back previous partners as it is for women first meeting Taurus men. A simple phone call or note may be enough to re-open the lines of communication.
Take him out to a park where you can talk. A walk in nature will please a quiet Taurus, as he likely enjoys beauty. Then cook him a meal at your place. Taureans are homebodies with big appetites, according to Goodman, which makes a meal in the house ideal for many.
Let him talk. Many Taurus men like to think out loud and even quiet ones enjoy talking once they get involved in a conversation.
Show off your sense of humor. Taureans enjoy people who can make them laugh, according to Woolfolk. This can help lighten the mood when discussing your relationship and it may remind him of what he is missing. Practical jokes are particular favorites of Taureans.
Apologize to him if your actions were responsible for your breakup. The greatest obstacle to winning back a Taurus may be earning his forgiveness, as Taurus men are easily hurt and don't readily forget past insults. If he is not willing to forgive yet, give him time.
Build him up with compliments--and don't tease. Goodman emphasizes that Taurus men enjoy praise, while one of their pet peeves is feeling belittled. Give genuine compliments, as Taureans value honesty and sincerity.
Find ways to touch him without being overbearing. Taureans have a keen sense of touch, according to Goodman, and Woolfolk states that the Taurus erogenous zone is the throat and neck area. Hold his hand or gently massage his neck.
