Almost everyone will say that falling in love with a Virgo is one of the best things that can happen to you, because they will take care of everything from the financial side of things to almost everything to do with your future life.
They are very stable and strong-minded, but there is a problem. They have a fairly specific personality profile of who they would like to meet and choose as a future partner, so if you don't meet those criteria, there is virtually nothing you can do except try to show them that nothing is perfect in this world, and that imperfections are sometimes desirable. Consider this your biggest seduction challenge when trying to attract the Virgo man.
1) Don't underestimate the power of eye contact.
2) Make him feel needed and respected.
3) Use your intuition and respond to their signals.
4) Speak to him gently, but remain reliable.
5) It brings excitement and a bit of trouble into your life.
In addition to the fact that these natives have very high standards and seek nothing but perfection, someone who is both beautiful and intelligent, who knows what they want from the future, and who has both the ambition and perseverance to achieve their desires, they are also quite content to be alone.
This means that they will not actively seek a partner on their own initiative, and this makes it even more unlikely that they will fall for any compliments and sweet words that are thrown at them.
You will have to be very honest with your emotions, as well as realise that they want someone to share their whole life with.
He is a perfectionist, so you should expect to have to make extensive preparations and lay the groundwork before anything concrete happens between the two of you.
And yes, we are also talking about sexual matters, because you should not expect this Mercury-driven native to be so open and uninhibited from the beginning. Try to get his attention and encourage him, so that he lets loose and destroys his personal limitations.
Try to tell this native that there is no need to worry if something goes wrong the first time, because it is natural, and it is also very effective to use words to calm him or her down.
If it seems like everything is going to be a headache, meeting their high expectations and doing everything in your power to satisfy this native, then it's time for good news. It's all worth it in the end, because even if it takes a little persuasion, once they get into the game, they go all in, no second guessing, no half-measures.
Virgo men will show their affection for all the effort you have put in. They can clearly see the pure love and consideration for everything you have tried up to that very moment.
The secret here is to use your brain, to do it intelligently, because they love their partners to be quick and cultured.
Whoever wants to win over a Virgo man has to really be in the moment and show him that nothing bad will happen if he goes the extra mile.
A relationship implies common responsibilities, similar dreams and aspirations to work for, mutual honesty and understanding each other. That's what they care about, whether you have what it takes or not.
To do this, it is best to be very direct and straightforward, and never pretend when you are around them. Be honest with your emotions and feelings, to reassure them that they can trust you.
Something that can pose quite a few problems in this regard is the fact that these natives are rather closed when it comes to their emotions. Or rather, they do not feel the need to open up that much, at least in the initial stages.
Instead of telling you what you do well and what you should change, they will wait for you to do everything and take the initiative. So stick to that, and go for it from the start.
Why wait when there are opportunities to seize? Ask them out and everything is sure to work out beautifully. Do it in a natural tone, without hesitation and, above all, be bold and confident. They will like that very much.
Professionally, Virgos want their partners to be the types who actually do something for a change and don't waste time on petty dreams and illusions.
They may even share a couple of principles and ideas with you, so be sure to show them the next time you meet.
Also, in terms of what they like in their women, when it comes to physique, natural and simplicity is very much their thing. They don't want you to go over the top and try to impress, ending up looking overdone and too dazzling to help land a plane.
After all, it's not that difficult to impress and keep a Virgo man interested. You just have to make sure he knows you need him, no matter how or under what circumstances.
It may be their compulsive need for everything to be tidy and well organised, or their emphasis on work, but they are worth it, that much is clear.
As for the downsides, in this case it won't be too dramatic, but there are a few things to watch out for if your relationship is meant to last. First of all, don't expect them to be affectionate with you from the first date, or even the second.
You will have to prove yourself to them, and it will take some time for them to really get to know you.
Another thing that counts for a lot is that they are quite introverted and prefer not to be the centre of attention, like never before.
If somehow you think they should face their fears and overcome them, think again. Don't you think they have thought about it? There's a reason they haven't yet, so don't be blunt.
Instead, be considerate, and it will be much appreciated. Punctuality and a sympathetic attitude are key principles for them, so keep that in mind.
It may seem like Virgos will be pretty hard to convince, at least when it comes to getting them into your bed, but the real obstacle is melting their hearts, or even going so far as to try.
They are focused on the present, on what they have to do to have the life they have always wanted.
And to achieve this, they obviously need to be aware, responsible, realistic and pragmatic, so to speak.
Love... well, let's just say that love is not a priority. If it happens, that's it, but they won't go out of their way to find that special person.
