Virgo Man: The Helpful Critic

Has a Virgo man caught your eye? Having a hard time understanding his ways? In this article we will cover the most important information about Virgo men. Thanks to Astrology, we can understand our partners without all the guesswork!

Before we get into it, let’s go over general information about the zodiac sign Virgo. 

Virgos are born between August 23rd and September 22nd. The Virgo zodiac glyph is the virgin. Some say this is why Virgos have a rather innocent aura to them, however, that is not the true reason for the glyph. The mythology is quite complex, but essentially, the virgin reference is more tied about Virgo’s self-sustainability rather than anything related to sex. 

Additionally, Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, which influences them to be discerning and efficient. This is because the order of a sign tends to show the stage of development that they are in. Virgo is not considered a young or old sign, since they are at the halfway mark in the zodiac order. Due to this, they tend to represent the evolution of the zodiac, transitioning from early development into more established energy. 

Virgo is a mutable earth sign, making them rather flexible but practical. Their mutable energy helps them be adaptable and able to compromise with others. Virgos know how to identify problems and find solutions that benefit everyone. Their knack for discernment makes them rather detailed, which makes them come off as being critical. Being an earth sign, Virgo just wants to make sure that things make sense. In addition to their element, their ruling planet Mercury heavily influences this quality. Mercury thrives on communication and logic, making Virgo the ultimate detail-oriented problem-solver!

With that out of the way, let’s get to know Virgo men better.

Virgo Men Traits

Practical, communicative, detailed, critical, helpful, efficient, thoughtful, orderly, organized, reliable, responsible, sarcastic, irritable, perfectionistic, hard-working, humble, caring, blunt, independent, observant, clever, controlling, poise, attentive.

Discovering Virgo Men: Personality, Tendencies & Trust Patterns

Virgo men are perhaps one of the most caring and attentive signs of the zodiac. However, their detail-oriented approach can make them appear rather critical and cold on the surface. Virgo men show that they care by paying attention to the details. This will manifest in every area of their life, at work, in love, with friends, and at home. These men truly notice every little thing. When a virgo man really cares about something, they will be relentless about things being in perfect order. 

Moreover, Virgo men are very practical and logical. They want things to make sense and to operate at their best. These men have a gift for problem-solving and improving the things around them. Due to this quality, they are actually quite helpful and generous towards others. Virgo men like to make things easier for the people around them, and will go to great lengths to problem-solve for those in need. These men like to keep their word and be on time. Because of this, others view them as quite steady and reliable. If a Virgo man made an arrangement with you, you can bet that they will remember their promise down to the finest detail. 

Being ruled by Mercury, Virgo men naturally have an easy time communicating. While they may not be as chatty as per say a Gemini, they will still require thorough communication to operate at their peak. The thing is, Virgos don’t communicate just for fun. They see communication as an integral part of understanding their world. Because of the Mercury influence, Virgo men are naturally intellectual and clever. They likely know a few languages, but if not, you can guarantee they will have an impressive range in vocabulary. These men love to be sarcastic and make jokes about the small details they observe. This is why they can be great mimickers! 

Further, Virgo men spend a lot of time in their mind sorting through details and discerning between things. This quality can make Virgos nervous overthinkers, but also the ultimate perfectionists. Virgo men can get so caught up in details that they tend to lose sight of the bigger picture. This is part of the reason why Virgo men crave regimented lifestyles. They need routine to keep themselves in mental order. Virgo men have a hard time feeling out of control, especially when it comes to their own lives. This is a big reason why Virgo men can seem too good to be true on the exterior. However, underneath is an anxious man wanting to be good enough for himself and others. 

Finally, Virgo men can be cautious and emotionally withdrawn from people upon first meeting. They can take some time to truly trust those wanting to get closer. This is because of their detail oriented eye. They can get caught up in their head by over analyzing people, and as a result close themselves off. Virgo men will still be friendly, but they won’t let you in easily. These men are twice as critical of themselves as they are towards others, and a big reason they can have trust issues is because of their fear of rejection. Virgo men have a fear of not being good enough for the world. This makes them keep others at arms length until they feel that they will be accepted. Once a Virgo man lets you in, he will trust you 100%.

Virgo Men When They Fall in Love: Sex, Dating, & Love

When Virgo men fall in love, they are very attentive lovers. From the get-go they will start taking note of everything about you. From your small mannerisms to your likes and dislikes. These men are rather practical lovers, but the level of detail they recall about their significant other is quite romantic. When a Virgo man is in love, he will want to be his best, and this will extend to his treatment of you. He will show you he loves you by being helpful and doing tedious tasks for you. He will also want to convince you that he is the best lover for you. Virgo men will go out of their way to accentuate their good qualities to win your approval. 

Virgo men will run your errands, clean your windows, and make your bed. These men love to show affection with practical action and resourcefulness. They can have a hard time expressing their deepest feelings, but they will have a hard time taking their attention off of you. They will also want to talk to you extensively and get to know you inside out. These men want to ‘crack’ the people they love, because they want to know their lovers better than they know themselves. They want to know what makes their partners tick so that they can become their dream man. They find this exhilarating and it makes them fall in love even harder. They will replay conversations in their heads and plan their next steps to woo you. Falling in love is like a puzzle for Virgo men. The more complex the better! 

Further, when Virgo men fall in love, they want to feel appreciated by their partners. These men can be overthinkers, and will feel unappreciated if their lovers don’t communicate their gratitude. While Virgo men can shy away from being verbally affectionate, they typically crave it from their partners. Virgo men become extra vulnerable when they’re in love with someone, so they will secretly want reassurance that you think they’re amazing. It’s not that they’re full of themselves and want constant attention, they just want to make sure you see them as irreplaceable. This can sometimes be the difficult thing about Virgo men when they’re in love. If they feel like there is a chance of them not being good enough for their lover, they become cold.  

When it comes to dating, Virgo men aren’t the most adventurous but they are interesting. They are interesting during conversation, and their composed nature makes you wonder if there’s more to it. Remember, these men are not lovey dovey. Don’t expect them to be very affectionate, and forthcoming with their affection while dating. They likely won’t buy you flowers and go out of their way to surprise you, but they will be punctual and respectful. They will treat you properly and want to impress you. Expect more traditional dates like dinner and bowling or trips to a museum. 

Finally, Virgo men are earthy and hard-working lovers. These men want to make sure they are pleasing you and leaving you impressed during love making. They love to serve others, especially in the bedroom. Expect them to be attentive and thoughtful of you in bed. However, this can also go the other way around, where they expect their partner to cater to them. They may be quite difficult to satisfy which could lead to longer than usual sessions!

How does a Virgo man test you?

A Virgo man tests by pushing buttons and watching reactions. These men are naturally critical, and if they feel that you are too reactive they will get turned off. They aren’t fans of drama and people that can’t control themselves. These men will also test you in conversation and pay close attention to your responses. They may withdraw during conversation to let you talk and see if you shoot yourself in the foot. They may also test you by asking you questions to answers they already know the answer to.

How to tell if a Virgo man likes you?

You will know that a Virgo man likes you if he remembers very small details about you, and goes out of his way to help you. Virgo men despise helping people they don’t like. However, it’s important to note that Virgo men are naturally like this, so it’s not the most telling sign. The biggest indicator will be that they ask for your opinion or for help with something. Virgo men are very independent and self-reliant, so if he is suddenly asking you for help, that means he likes you! Especially if he is asking for your opinion on something important.

How to make a Virgo man chase you?

Ignore him! Virgo men want what they can’t have. It’s their inner perfectionist ringing in their head. Remember that Virgo men are scared of being rejected, which makes them crave approval in sly ways. If you pay attention to him sometimes, and then play it cool most of the time, they will naturally want to win your approval and start chasing you. Being very independent and focused on your work or studies is also a sure way to get them to chase you. These men love hardworking, independent women, so they will find it irresistible that your focus is elsewhere!
