Understanding the Virgo Man
Shy and modest, the Virgo man is rather analytical than sentimental, intellectual than romantic. Rational and puritan, he needs to know exactly where he stands and what he has to do. The Virgo man does not enjoy mysteries. On the other hand, love and sex are mysteries we know little about.
The Virgo man is critical and very demanding. His extraordinary ability to seize flaws makes him very selective. Consequently, the fear of getting involved in a situation he cannot control, the lack of a detailed and precise recipe for love handling, as well as his special exactingness make it rather difficult for the Virgo man to start a relationship.
Very organized and orderly, the Virgo man is afraid that his intimacy will be violated and his discretion and bashfulness make him terrify at the thought he might be expected to manifest his love through gestures he does not feel he can make. Besides that, he is the practical and economical kind and love could mean waste of time and energy. All these things make the Virgo sign provide the largest number of bachelors.
However, as often happens, the Virgo man looks in his partner for the things he himself refrains from. What is most terrifying to him becomes precisely the great fascination in love: the fervency, the spontaneous expression of intuition and imagination, the energy and love of life. When the Virgo man meets these qualities in the woman he is interested in, the refrained child he carries deep within himself sets free and runs towards freedom...
How to Win
the Virgo Man’s Heart
The Virgo man is more of a game than a hunter. For this reason, you are the one who will have to take the first step.
Approach the Virgo man directly, but tactfully. Find out which is his favourite topic, then read five books on that subject. Memorize several details (he is a master of detail), then challenge him to a conversation on that theme and admire his talent and competence in the field.
Wear classical and smart clothes, yet decent, and don’t use too much make-up. Don’t be late on your date - punctuality is very important to the Virgo man. Don’t be extravagant and wasteful. If you invite him to your place, make sure it is tidy and very clean.
Make the Virgo man feel safe emotionally and don’t try to arouse his jealousy - if he feels he is competing to a legion of men, the Virgo man will draw back discretely, but disappointed. Show interest in his health because he has certain tendencies towards hypochondria. Don’t ever laugh at his little manias, listen patiently to his critics of the others, but try to temper him with tact.
The Virgo man is very reluctant in deciding to get married and he will pay attention to the candidate for this step to see if she is financially stable, if she can offer support in life and if she is able to set up a comfortable and cosy home. You won’t live the passion of your life with the Virgo man but you will feel protected, cared for and... you will always be able to rely on him for housework.
