A Scorpio man’s weakness can be seen when he’s in love or obsessed. Sometimes he doesn’t know the difference between these two states.
Scorpio men love to be in control, but their passion and obsessions can undermine this.
What a Scorpio man wants to hear more than anything else is that he is the one and only focus of your attention. This can make him vulnerable to jealousy and possessiveness.
A Scorpio’s weaknesses are often seen as his greatest strengths but in the extreme. One of his biggest challenges is that he takes everything to a zealous level.
He goes from cold to boiling hot and there is nothing in between for a Scorpio man. When you see signs that a Scorpio man has feelings for you, you’ll want to know his weaknesses.
He’s Prone to Addictions
If you’re wondering how to confront a Scorpio man, keep in mind that confrontation seldom works with him. You’ve got to work with his limitations and respect his weaknesses.
One of the biggest weaknesses of a Scorpio man is that he is prone to addictive behavior. This doesn’t mean all Scorpios abuse drugs. But due to his tendency to go to extremes, Scorpios can be addicted to anything.
His vulnerability is less about Scorpio’s weak body part or literal Achille’s Heel but rather on a mental level. His weaknesses stem from an overactive and sometimes counterproductive, imagination.
Scorpio men are prone to thinking the worst. They can become preoccupied with negative thoughts. Even when he loves someone or loves something, his tendency to become obsessed with his interests can lead to an addictive pattern.
When a Scorpio man puts his focus into a hobby or even when he is interested in a potential lover, he becomes addicted. Sometimes he thinks he’s in love when he’s really addicted to a relationship.
After steady pursuit, he’ll inevitably burn out and this is why he seems to run hot and cold. Scorpio men need to fuel their passions by compulsively chasing. He will want to pursue you if he likes you but may become addicted to the chase.
What a Scorpio man wants in a relationship is to completely lose himself. He wants to unravel any mysteries about you and learn all your deepest, darkest secrets.
This can be thrilling, yet his obsessive nature is another facet of a Scorpio man’s weaknesses. He can get so caught up in lust, fascination or obsession that he misses the bigger picture.
He may feel like he knows you because he connects with one detail of your life. Likewise, he may find one tiny thing he doesn’t like about you and become fixated on this issue.
When a Scorpio man gets into an argument, his obsessive nature can keep him from resolving the conflict. He may become so obsessed with your flaws or with a mistake you’ve made that he becomes unforgiving.
You need to know how to deal with a Scorpio man if you are going to successfully work around his tendency to obsessive over small details. If you can redirect him gently, without dominating him, you’ll succeed.
He Sabotages Himself
When a Scorpio man wants you, he’ll move mountains to be with you. His efforts to make you happy and chase you can feel flattering when he’s focused on you. He will want to spend as much time with you as possible.
So why would he then suddenly go cold? Because a Scorpio man’s other weakness is self-sabotage. He doesn’t just do this in relationships. He will do this in any aspect of his life.
When he finally lands his dream job, he’ll undermine himself. If he finds the love of his life, he’ll gradually walk his way out of commitment by looking for problems where none exist.
When things are too calm, and when he finally has a chance to be truly happy, a Scorpio man will dig around in all the dark corners of your psyche looking to find fault. If he can’t find a reason to go on the defensive, he’ll create one.
He may use his jealousy and insecurities to stir up drama. This will help ensure that no solid and stable relationship will last too long. You can help a Scorpio man overcome his self-sabotage instinct by knowing how to work with his traits.
If you want to know how to win a Scorpio man’s heart, you have to show him that you have a dark side just like he does. One way to do this is to play to one of his fun weaknesses, his sarcasm.
Of course, his sarcasm is only fun if you can share in the humor at someone else’s expense. The problem is, when he turns his sarcasm on you, it’s not so pleasant. He can have a sharp tongue and leave others in tears.
He knows how to go for the jugular and isn’t afraid to use his infamous Scorpio sting to bring his adversaries down. You may be his partner, not his adversary, yet in any conflict, it will be you against him.
A Scorpio man will pull out all the stops in order to stay in control. He will want to know that you have a thick enough skin to be able to laugh with him and enjoy his sense of humor. His wit and edgy side.
A Scorpio man’s likes and dislikes in a woman include someone who is too stuffy or takes herself too seriously. His sarcasm can make him popular to some people but he can take it too far.
He can have a biting and cruel sense of humor sometimes and he will also use humor as a weapon. He isn’t afraid to clap back if he feels insulted and his sarcasm can cost him relationships.
He Can’t Resist Temptation
A Scorpio man can have tremendous willpower. He will hold out on a relationship in order to get his way, even if it costs him everything he wants to take this gamble.
Yet he is also a glutton for temptation. He is seduced by pleasure and follows his intense love of pleasure and power. He will forego pleasure in order to find power, however.
This is important to know when it comes to relationships with a Scorpio man because even if he loves you, he will sacrifice the relationship in order to get his way or feel in control. Status and wealth can override love for a Scorpio man.
A Scorpio man can be tempted to have an affair, leave a loved one, push a lover away or shut down and change his entire life if the right instincts within him are triggered. This is frustrating and confusing for women around them.
You may wonder if he ever loved you, or what you did wrong. In truth, a Scorpio man may make his own decisions based on his instincts and desire for power rather than his love for you. This is one of his weaknesses.
He Doesn’t Trust Anyone
A Scorpio man doesn’t easily trust anyone. This is one of his major downfalls. He can range from being suspicious to being downright paranoid. He will always look for evidence that he’s being deceived.
A Scorpio man will want to see consistent proof that you are being sincere, and he won’t assume you’re honest with him. He will withhold his trust until you’ve proven yourself to him.
A Scorpio man will show suspicion even if he loves you. He’ll question your friendships to other men. He’ll become jealous if you don’t come home on time.
Any woman who spends a long time in relationship with a Scorpio man will need to learn to de-escalate him when he gets into this possessive mood.
He’s Attracted to Toxic Partners
One way to get a Scorpio man to obsessively fall in love with you is to make it obvious you’re not good for him. Of course, this isn’t really a good idea if you want a stable, healthy relationship with him.
A Scorpio man needs to learn to overcome his attraction to what undermines him. This is a major lesson for him and it plays out in his relationships to others.
One of his biggest weaknesses is a tendency to fall for women who amplify all of his vices. Women who enable him and whose own wounds and weaknesses exacerbate his own.
Scorpio men need to learn to sink or swim in their relationships and when they become engrossed with relationships that are toxic and chaotic, it can bring out all of a Scorpio man’s worst traits.
It’s not wise to enable a Scorpio man’s toxic relationship behavior. It’s inevitable that he will become aware that he’s sabotaging himself in this toxic relationship. When he realizes this, he’ll disappear, for his own good.
Yet before he comes to this realization, a Scorpio man will sabotage himself and bring about all kinds of havoc and chaos. He and a toxic partner can bring out the dark side of each other in the relationship before he becomes more stable.
