Dating Your Virgo Man (August 23–September 22)

Mr. Virgo is the quiet, masculine man standing in the back of the room, looking extremely cool and reserved as he scans the room in a critical manner. He is very observant. He is the problem solver in any situation. He is critical of others but also uses critical and methodical thinking in making his decisions. Organization, hygiene, and cleanliness are very, very important to Mr. Virgo.

With Mercury as his ruling planet, Virgo man is highly intellectual. You may not know this unless you know him well, since he is mostly introverted and keeps much to himself. He is open to many different experiences and opportunities, unlike Mr. Taurus or Mr. Aries, who can prove to be quite stubborn. This is because of his natural ambition. He believes that there is always room for improvement.

The Virgo man is one of dignity, confidence, and self-pride. He is a good man, and if he can get over his natural instinct of being verbally critical, he is a great man to be with.

Virgo Man in Love

Landing a Virgo man is quite a feat. It requires lots of time and patience, for he is not whimsical or spontaneous. He will methodically decide if you are worth his love and dedication. It could take a long time since Mr. Virgo has the patience of Job, from the Bible. However, once you have his love, he is sure to be extremely sweet and romantic.

He knows how to treat a lady, so he expects you to behave like one. That will be one of the qualities he looks for. Mr. Virgo is intelligent, nonsensical, and doesn’t appreciate drama. He is mature, and game-playing or assuming the damsel in distress role will completely turn him off. At this point, he will move on. He is a man. He wants a mature, independent partner, not a child.

Virgos Are Not All Alike

Your Moon sign and your ascendant (also commonly called your rising sign) carry just as much influence as your Sun sign. There are many factors that can change or skew a typical Virgo personality. For example, if a Virgo Sun sign has a Gemini rising, there is a great possibility of an appearance of a more outgoing Virgo. These variances are all completely dependent on a person’s birth chart.

A birth chart is also called a natal chart. This is an exact snapshot of the sky at your particular time and place of birth. There are at least 10 astrological planets and their placement amongst 12 houses and 12 constellations to consider. Obviously, the Sun will be located in the constellation of Virgo. The Virgo’s Moon sign is the constellation the Moon is in at the time of birth. The Rising sign is the constellation that appears on the eastern horizon of the Earth at the exact time and place of the Virgo’s birth.

Obviously, there are many, many factors to consider when determining personality traits, emotions, the method of handling the emotions, and priorities of a person through Astrology. I recommend having your birth chart read by a professional astrologer.

I'm was in a relationship with a virgo, but, he will leave,come back. I cant read him. I'm a capricorn

LisaLove on February 13, 2019:

I am in a, hmmm, lets call it a "situationship" with a Virgo man. I cannot read this man for the life of me. One minute I think he's into me and the next he's giving me the friendship vibe, but I definitely feel a connection, and he himself has said we have a connection, and in your description of the Virgo man in love, you say he has the patience of a Job and could take a long time for him to make a decision. He is a very good man that I enjoyed being with and your absolutely right, he knows how to treat a lady, but how long do I wait? We've been doing this for 6 months!

I'm a Virgo and was recently dating a Libra woman, but unfortunately things did not work out for us, even though I really liked her. Interesting but accurate hub with regards to describing Virgos. Two thumbs up.

Such an interesting hub. My ex-husband is a Virgo and I recognise a lot of the traits you've mentioned in him. I'm a Libra, and I see from your chart that would make us incompatible - how true that is! Voted up!

I think I've seen some of these guys - but I hadn't thought to attribute it to their birth dates! Interesting information - voted up!
