10 Things To Expect When Dating A Virgo

Virgos take the longest time when it comes to dating. It’s not that they’re incapable of finding a partner, despite their many flaws. In fact, they’re the best out of any zodiac sign when it comes to relationships. They’re perfectionists, even more so when it comes to dating someone new but remember, it’s all done out of love. They want to make for certain that they’ve found the right match. Like everyone else, they’re just looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right.

Once they’ve found ‘the one’, we’ll see an entirely different side of them. A Virgo will fall hard and when they do, they love even better. Here are 10 things to expect when dating a Virgo.

10 They Are Perfectionists

Virgo’s are picky lovers when it comes to relationships. If the conversation progresses from small talk to “moving in together”, one should probably invest in a planner and several cleaning utensils. Living with a Virgo is like living in a five-star hotel. Every square inch of the apartment should be clean and shined to perfection.

Don’t expect to leave a box of pizza lying around the apartment and not get an ear full from a Virgo partner. They’re quick to point out mistakes, especially ones that leave behind a smell. No slobs allowed! Additionally, Virgos like to live an orderly household. Everything must be put back its respective space, no exceptions. This may be one of their less appealing qualities but think of it this way, they just want everything to be perfect for us.

9 Trust Is A Must For A Virgo

Another goal Virgos strive for in a relationship is trust. They are wise souls who aren’t so easily fooled, especially if they’ve already been deceived once. The key to a Virgos heart is showing the purest version of ourselves. Remember that saying of ‘the truth will set us free’? We’re wasting our time if we think being someone else will impress a Virgo. If we have children or an embarrassing obsession with Harry Potter, tell them about it! Honesty is a major player when it comes to dating a Virgo, because it lets them know we can be trusted. They love people who aren’t afraid to be themselves around others.

8 They Love Our Inner Beauty

While we’re on the topic of honesty, a Virgo not only wants to see us for who we are but what we are. Legendary Italian designer, Gianni Versace, was a very intuitive person who could see beauty for what it was. He was a lover of all things true, pure and beautiful, especially inner beauty.

Virgos are like Versace in which they like the bare-faced version of ourselves, so to speak. No matter our imperfections, if we have a great personality and conversation, they’ll like us. Baring our outer appearance is more attractive anyway, than having to slap on a ton of makeup every day. These guys are true believers in natural beauty.

7 They’re Not Great At Making The First Move

A Virgo may think we’re beautiful just by the way we laugh or even how we chew our food but will never have the courage to approach us. We mentioned before that Virgos are slow-moving when it comes to relationships, right? Well, it’s not just because they’re extremely choosy or hard to crack when getting to know them. They just really suck at making the first move. It takes a while for a Virgo to come out their shells and it’s always best, when first approaching them, to get right to the point. Don’t bother sending flirtatious glances or hand gestures that could mean anything, they won’t get it. Virgo’s appreciate it more when we make the first move as it lets them know what type of person we are.

6 Keep It Simple With Them

Now that we’ve made the first move, it’s time for the first date. Wondering what to wear? Not sure if they’ll like the new tux we just bought? Or perhaps that little black number we’ve been dying to wear will scare them off.

Our advice is to do away with all of those things. They won’t impress a Virgo at all. The first date shouldn’t be anywhere too loud or too boring but has just enough spunk to get their head bopping. As for the dress code, stick to simple and elegant but get their attention at the same time. Virgos like to be impressed and they work even harder to do the same as well. Good luck!

5 They Are Slow To Open Up

There’s nothing a Virgo won’t do to impress us. First impressions are everything and can mean more than we think for them. As we get to know a Virgo, we start to see a different side of them. They’re like onions, we peel one layer and then another, until we reach the center. Virgos tend to warm up the more they learn about a person, preferably if they like them. They’ll make more conversation and ask questions about who we are. The point is, they want to get know us, too. We could even talk about something really embarrassing that happened to us as kids. Virgos have a thirst for knowledge and yearn to learn everything about a person.

4 Virgos Are Workaholics

Not only do Virgos put in a lot of time and effort into getting to know someone, they’re also addicted to work. They give a whole new meaning to the phrase “work hard, play harder”, because they’re willing to do just about anything to get the job done. Virgos are success junkies and get super hyped at working on multiple projects at a time.

We can say the same for a relationship. They get competitive with other power couples and attempt to outwit them at every turn. Not only do they want to be successful at work, but they also want a thriving relationship as well. Do they have a bit of a competitive strike? Probably so, but if they’re winning, so are we!

3 They Can Be Distant At Times

Work may seem like it gets in the way, but that’s not always the case with a Virgo. They have a rep for being distant, especially when they’re working on a really big project. Always remember that it’s all done in love. When a Virgo works hard on a relationship, they expect nothing but the best for both themselves and us. They want the relationship to grow and evolve, which sometimes requires a lot of secretive plotting. Taking time to themselves doesn’t mean they’re leaving, it just means they care that much more - despite how odd it may seem. Once our Virgo has formulated a plan, they’ll be back in our arms in no time.

2 Virgos Can Be Very Critical

Virgos take time to reflect on a relationship and though it may seem harsh, we just have to be patient with them. Everyone has a way of doing things and Virgo’s are no different. They process information, the world and people differently than most which at times can be frustrating. Virgos are known for being highly critical, which maybe a turn-off for some. As a forewarning be prepared for a snarky comment if we accidentally wear our shirt on backwards. Their comments may be mean or hurtful, but it’s never done intentionally. It’s best to ignore Virgos when they get extremely judgmental. No one is perfect and sometimes it does some good to remind our Virgos of that.

1 They Are Very Nurturing

Virgos make for one of the best nurturers. They enjoy helping people, whether that means offering food or a ride somewhere, they are willing to do it. Though, just because they’re willing to help their fellow man doesn’t mean they’ll be taking us home to meet their parents. Virgos love success and therefore, are attracted to those who have their lives together. Of course, they’ll still rub our feet and run a hot bath for us after a long day at work even if we are a billionaire. Sometimes though, it’s nice to return the favor for once. Virgo’s do so much for us that they deserve a bit of pampering from time to time.
