When you give the silent treatment or retreat to your corner, what does it usually mean for the relationship with the person you're giving the silent treatment to?
male
As a Taurus, the silent treatment means that I am pissed off at you and need time to reflect. This can be a bad thing, depending on how long the silent treatment goes. The bad thing can mean that the relationship can be ending for the Taurus. Damage on arguing could have been very personal. Give the Taurus time to cool down and reflect and let him come to you.

I don't do the silent treatment in relationships or ever really. I guess I do withdraw (one words answers, not making an effort to communicate) but if he's making an effort to reach out to me, I would never just flat out ignore him. Withdrawing for me means the usual stuff- You hurt me or angered me. I don't like the energy depleted from playing games. And the silent treatment seems more like a concentrated effort to make someone feel bad and less of a natural reaction to slights.

I do have a shell that I retreat to. If I'm reached out to, I'll come out, give my cold, monosyllabic answers and return to my shell.

Actually I have given the silent treatment before. But by that point the relationship was long over and I had no interest in "fixing" it.
depends, did you piss me off?

same here. for me it depends on how mad i am. If it's for a few days then i'm probably just upset, need breathing room and i need to teach you lesson. If it's longer than a week, then that's a clear sign that our relationship (friendship or whatever) has run its course and I am no longer interested in keeping the lines of communication open.

Retreating or silent treatment isn't a good sign with me. I'm usually an over-communicator. I will bend over backwards trying to make something work - even when there are problems (especially if I feel at all guilty). If I'm not talking anymore it usually means I'm done...or on my way there.

I agree, if the silent treatment goes on for awhile (meaning several days or weeks), that does not bode well for the recipient on the other end of that silent treatment.

From what ive seen, usually it means they'll never forgive you for as long as you live. Taurus people take a lot to get to the point, but when they do, you're out of their life for good.

Yeppers. It takes a Taurean a LONG time to get to that point, as we are so hard on ourselves that we know (painfully well) that nobody is perfect; therefore we give people a LOT of latitude if they are friends, family or lovers. BUT, with that being said, once it??s over (typically) it is ovah??. Also, the silent treatment usually doesn??t work on us (usually being the operative word). My ex-fiance?? the Libra, used to HATE when I gave him the silent treatment, which didn??t happen very often. Also, I think with Taureans (again, generalizing), we know that once you say something, you can??t take it back; therefore, we try to be conscientious of what we allow to flow from our mouths????_in my experience anyway. I typically refrain from giving unsolicited advice, AND, when I do (usually this is what I ask my girlfriends since they tend to be uber sensitive), I always ask, ???Do you want me to sugar coat it, or tell it to you raw??? I don??t like people kittyfooting around me, but a lot of people can??t handle the truth.
My girl taurus has also given silent treatment, ours was a distant relationship, and she was from a muslim conservative family i a buddhist, non muslim. After a long silence i accidently called her father, and her father beat her up, relationship got brokedwn but phone was open later again to ask help called a fb friend found to be her ex now totally screwd up..and she chnged her number, it was all happened by accident, not intentional as i got impatientnce of her silence, though on a phone after long day she recieved giggling just b4 the things happened but i wasnt convinced as the talk was short lived. Now i dnt know wht will happen but i want her back... could u plz guide me ,i can send a friend request to her again..with another id..or should i wait will she understand tht being silent made me crazy,, and should applogise.. but we exchnged hot talks over phone though. but later i appologised 4 my rough behavious now the phone number too chnged.

my taurus man and i are going through the silent treatment right now ( i am a libra) we were together for a year everything was great stupid little fights here and their but nothing major we broke up 3 days before our anniversary he said he was not happy with me and is still not happy because we have to be apart he said he love me but did not think he was IN love with me anymore but i didn nothing wrong! im so confused by him as he is now not answering my calls or replying to my texts1.... im my opinion i think taurus people can be quite self centered and they retreat to silence to hurt us even more like maybe thtas just a way of them trying to show us how hurt they are but personally from my own experience i think you should just leave him alone for a while and wait and see if he comes back.

I am pretty black and white. People always can tell where they stand with me. If I am ignoring you, there is a reason. Annoyed, feelings hurt, something more important than you is taking up my time. None of which is positive. Can be seen as passive agressive, but I know myself well enough to know when i need space or else I will behave in a way that doesnt communicate exactly how I want to. I take my time. And If I feel rushed or backed into a corner and am being forced into communicating before I am ready...I will dig in my heals and be done with the entire thing.

I have venus and mars in Taurus, Gemini sun, but when I do the silent treatment when I'm really pissed off, yeah stay the hell away from me.
