Virgo man personality traits and characteristics

A favorite of those who prefer the quiet, smoldering intellectual type, the Virgo man has a fantastic eye for detail and enjoys order, precision and efficiency in all things. If you find intelligence and a professional attitude to be sexy, then this is the man for you.

Precise. Professional. Reserved. and fun!

If you're turned on by intelligent people then beware! Virgo's are nearly always intellectual, and this man's fast mind can find humor in most things, and often empathize with others more than his emotions alone would allow. This ability to empathize while still remaining detached makes them some of the best counselors, therapists and psychologists.

Virgo men typically have a fantastic eye for detail and enjoy order, precision and efficiency in all things. This has several implications, for example he is likely to prefer routines to random or chaotic approaches, and is very likely to have a fondness for lists.

A common fault of Virgo men is to be highly critical when perfection is not found. This usually applies doubly to himself and his own performance, which can sometimes lead to reduced self confidence. He is likely to have trouble relaxing, and often hates wasting time, or sitting idle.

Later in life he's likely to look much younger than he really is. Call it unfair but this is a sign which usually ages very well. One factor in this is that Virgo men are more likely than most to monitor what they eat and drink, how frequently they exercise, and generally to prefer a healthy lifestyle.

He is likely to be fairly reserved with people he doesn't know, and may be uncomfortable receiving too much attention, perhaps embarrassing easily. He is very unlikely to ever display any irrational or emotional outbursts in public.

Analytical, discriminating, precise, considerate and reliable, he is likely to enjoy work of a technical or analytical nature, quite possibly working behind the scenes to ensure the efficiency of an organization, rather than taking center stage or seeking direct recognition for his achievements.

On the negative side, he can sometimes be seen as picky, aloof, sarcastic, pessimistic or whiny. He assumes everyone views him with the same critical eye that he possesses, which can sap his self confidence. Ironically, he is likely to be more perfect than most of us, yet he's the only one who can't see it. This level of self imposed modesty can be particularly endearing.

Virgo man questions

What are Virgo men like in bed?

Virgos are often portrayed poorly in this area, directly or indirectly considered the least sexual of all the signs. The reality however is that they are amongst the most sexual, they're just discreet about it, often offering subtle and indirect comments rather than anything too blatant or vulgar. Don't make the mistake of assuming he's a prude or you may miss some of the best one liners!

If you have a particularly hesitant Virgo man then it's worth noting he may be more comfortable being asked to do something rather than initiating sexual acts himself the first time or two. In these cases the 'cleaner' you can keep his conscience, the less inhibited he will be in the long term.

This is a man who takes feedback to heart, so it's also worth noting that criticism can do a lot of harm, while encouragement can pay big dividends. Overall, Virgo men are often more comfortable with a confident lover at the start of a relationship, though that soon changes as they get more comfortable.

Are Virgo men kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Virgo men are about average. Typically they enjoy mental stimulation such as role playing (as long as you're a worthy opponent!) more than vanilla kinkiness for it's own sake. Leave the chicken in the fridge and just use a feather...

What's it like dating a Virgo man?

The Virgo man is a particularly loyal person, and gains much satisfaction from building and maintaining a healthy and functional relationship and lifestyle. Treat him well and he will enjoy doing the same for you. If you're too unstable, unpredictable, immature etc then he may begin to feel like a parent.

While often reserved towards strangers, Virgos show a very different side of themselves to friends and loved ones and tend to be highly entertaining and stimulating conversationalists, offering insights on almost any subject. If he seems too serious, it's likely that will change later!

How loyal are Virgo men?

The Virgo man is typically very loyal. One warning however in this area, as with other signs who dislike confrontation Virgos can be known to take action on their own rather than repeat arguments. Especially if you're overly aggressive or dominant. This isn't a man who cheats just for the thrill of it, or the ego boost or other shallow reasons, however he may do so when unhappy or dissatisfied for long periods.

How to know if a Virgo man loves you?

As in all things, he will analyze love and seek perfection. This is of course a difficult area to do either, and as a result he can be particularly hesitant and stand-offish until he's comfortable with a partner. Just to be clear, this doesn't mean you need to be perfect as they appreciate imperfection too. For a full description of how a Virgo man acts when in love please see our article on Virgo in love

How to understand your Virgo man

Your Virgo will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.

With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see our article on astrology compatibility readings.

Who are some famous Virgo men celebrities?

We have a list of the top 400 most famous Virgo celebrities and historical figures.

How to keep a Virgo man?

Virgo men tend to be independent and free thinking, and appreciate the same in a partner. Conversation and intellectual connection tends to be very important to them. They also tend to mesh well with a partner who appreciates their hardworking, down to earth style, and fast and clever mind.

Strong, stable and confident he or she should ideally be comfortable with being fairly dominant at the start of the relationship, both socially and sexually. In the longer term however treating him as a partner and an equal will win more points.

How to know if your Virgo man is your soulmate?

Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.

Virgo man long distance and online relationships

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Virgo men cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Virgo men do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:

Virgo man personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

How to make a Virgo man fall in love with you?

This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Virgo men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

Virgo man gifts

We have a dedicated section for Virgo man gifts with examples of the types of gifts which Virgo men enjoy within various categories from naughty to practical, including reader submitted suggestions.

Virgo man dating advice

No advice will ever apply to every Virgo man as they are all unique in various ways. I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn't nearly as useful. My astrology readings solve real relationship problems for real people every day. For more information please see the article on relationship advice.

How compatible are you with your Virgo man?

This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information - everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.

We specialize in providing accurate and affordable astrology compatibility readings delivered promptly via email. This reading explores everything about your relationship, including a detailed analysis of your personality and your partner's personality. We examine areas ranging from sexual attraction to problem solving. Each topic has clear explanations, scores and comparisons to averages. The relevant astrological charts are included, together with notes of how the information is derived from them.

Average size is 100 pages. The reading is $27 and includes an unconditional guarantee, free email questions and free revision if you later find a more accurate birth time for you or your partner.

All the analysis is based off of the date, time and location of birth for you and your partner. Ideally the times should be as accurate as possible, but we can work with the best information you have.

Below is a questionnaire which shows the information we will need:

No! This article is based only on sun signs. In order to provide a lot of people with information those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone's personality.

To get a complete picture of someone we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their natal chart.
