Dating A Virgo Man: 10 Things You Should Know

Born between August 23 and September 23, Virgo men are known for their meticulous nature. They’re fastidious, logical, and can be brutally honest. If you’re wondering whether a Virgo man would be a good match for you (or are already dating one and wondering whether you’re well-suited), there are a few things you should know about dating a Virgo man. Check them out below!

  1. Virgo men are honest. Virgos tend to value honesty above pretty much anything. So they really don’t like to be lied to, even if you’re just telling a white lie out of kindness. As a rule of thumb, you should always tell a Virgo man the truth, no matter how uncomfortable that discussion is. Because he values honesty, you should also be prepared for him to be quite blunt with you. Virgo men don’t typically beat around the bush or coat things in sugar to spare people’s feelings. The good news is that Virgo men don’t have a reputation for lying.
  2. They can appear very serious. Don’t freak out if the Virgo guy you’re dating isn’t super smiley. An Earth sign, Virgo has a reputation for being serious. If you’re used to dating signs that are a bit more playful and fun-loving, this can be confronting at first. But don’t take his serious demeanour as a sign that he doesn’t like you, though. His heart might be smiling on the inside, but it won’t often show on his face.
  3. Things may move slowly. Relationships tend to develop very slowly with Virgo men. They are cautious by nature and tread carefully. Unlike some of the more impulsive zodiac signs, they won’t rush into things. A Virgo man might also take a while to open up to you, so you might feel like he’s putting up walls until you’ve been on enough dates for him to let his guard down.
  4. They can be critical. One of the classic negative traits associated with Virgo is criticism. Virgo men are highly critical, both of themselves and other people. When you’re dating one, you might find that he often puts himself down or has trouble celebrating his achievements (Virgo men are also typically quite humble). He might also be critical of you, making comments that can hurt your feelings. Since a Virgo values open communication, be very clear when he’s out of line. The voice in his head is probably very mean when dealing with himself, so he doesn’t always recognize when he’s being too harsh with others.
  5. Forget PDA’s. Yep, Virgo men are indeed humble. They gravitate towards jobs where they can flourish behind the scenes rather than center stage. They don’t like to make scenes and they don’t like all the attention to fall on them. So naturally, they’re not great with PDA’s. Often, Virgo men find making out in public and the like to be super cringey and awkward. If you love the idea of PDA’s, it’s better to go for a Libra.
  6. They’re perfectionists. Everyone knows that Virgos are the perfectionists of the zodiac. The good news is this often means that a Virgo guy is self-aware and tries to improve himself on the regular. But the downside is he’s very rarely satisfied. They can be quite hard to please and will notice if things don’t go the way they’d planned. Again, don’t be afraid to remind a Virgo guy that perfection is impossible if he gets totally out of order with you about not being perfect.
  7. They’re natural worriers. Stress and Virgo go hand in hand. Thanks to a tendency for overthinking, very close attention to detail, a craving for perfection, and holding themselves to impossible standards, many Virgos feel stressed frequently. They worry about things that haven’t happened yet and are prone to freaking out if things don’t go perfectly. When dating a Virgo man, you might often have to be the calm one and help to soothe his worries. These signs aren’t great at chilling out!
  8. Loyalty is important to them. Virgos tend to be loyal by nature. While this is good news for those looking for long-term commitment, keep in mind that they expect the same loyalty in return. It’s a good idea to talk to your Virgo guy about where your relationship stands. Because often, he might view you as being exclusive when you thought you were just casually dating. Always be sure you’re on the same page!
  9. They’re often clean freaks. Cleanliness is part of the Virgo mindset. They tend to be very meticulous in most areas of life, and there’s no difference when it comes to cleaning their living space. If you don’t enjoy cleaning and like to leave dishes, clothes, makeup, and anything else around for days at a time, you might have some problems with a Virgo man. Then again, if you hate cleaning, maybe a Virgo man would be perfect for you, since he’s likely to take it all on anyway!
  10. They think logically. The Virgo brain is often a logical one. They are very prone to using common sense, making them great problem-solvers. If you’re more of a creative person and you don’t like to think of things logically, you might find that a Virgo man will bring you back down to earth. After all, he is an Earth sign!
