When a Virgo falls in love, there is basically no need to declare it, as everyone can notice it a mile away perfectly well. Making it clear that they love is not really the reason for it, but rather the desire to impress and dazzle that special person.
It doesn't really matter how and what they do, the only thing that matters is the end result. Above all, it comes down to what interests the other person.
That's what a Virgo is likely to have as a guiding principle. If it works, great, you now have an individual who will stop at nothing to make you happy and comfortable, literally at nothing.
Basically they live through the happiness of others, especially their partners.
Known for their effectiveness in life, Virgo natives really manage to harmonise everything, anytime, anywhere.
With a strict attitude and an even stricter set of expectations, you won't see one of them settling for a low position or an unworthy partner.
Conversely, the same high standards that lead them to have such high ideals will also work wonders for you.
The deep desire of a Virgo is to make you rise above and become superior to yourself.
Generally, everyone within a 100-metre radius of a Virgo will feel the benefits of this very quickly, as their life begins to change for the better.
Nothing acts more as a motivator than having a person by your side, instructing, helping and supporting you every step of the way.
And there are no strings attached. Really, the only reason they do what they do is simply because that's the way they are and it's natural.
Perfectionism can be both a blessing and a curse, but above all it is something that keeps one in top form and in a constant state of self-development.
For Virgos, it goes a little further, but without going over the edge. For example, they absolutely hate it when someone interferes in their life and messes it up, renovating or changing the domestic environment. Things were perfect the way they were, so why change them?
Just as a Leo gets things done, Virgo natives are quite determined when it comes to something they had planned for a long time.
Even more so when it comes to their dreams and future prospects. You can't argue with or alter your choice, so it's best to give up while you can.
With an inexhaustible thirst for knowledge and a knack for finding out about the unknown and the more intricate aspects of existence, Virgo natives are naturally great talkers.
After all, how else could they satisfy those cravings of theirs if not through discussion? They like to have debates and long talks about almost anything you can think of, from music, to painting, to astrophysics, to why wolves don't bark. There really isn't anything that can't, at any given time, fall into their field of interest.
And even if this is so, the simple fact of acquiring more knowledge and becoming better than before is a purpose in itself. And Virgos are dedicated to that.
They are great conversationalists because, beyond that infinite curiosity, they are also quite versatile and good at making you feel good about your role as a recipient of knowledge. Compliments, jokes, puns, anything goes to get what they want.
Nothing drives a Virgo woman away more than your resorting to mere games and tedious childishness, when it is clearly not necessary.
They tend to take it as a personal affront if someone goes down this path, a form of superficiality and disrespect towards them.
Gifted with a tendency to try to help people, even against their will if necessary, they really only do it out of kindness and generosity, with no purpose or trickery involved.
A pure, unadulterated and innocent desire to see and make everyone happy, that's what a Virgo is.
One thing they absolutely despise and abhor is the lack of punctuality of some people, of most people.
However, they may be right. If you know you have something to do that day and you can't make the meeting, or you are generally late, say so. It's not a bad thing; on the contrary, it will at least save the other person from wasting time waiting for you.
Impulsiveness is another thing that does not appeal to them, as they tend to pay attention to details most of the time before committing to something.
Rather than jumping headlong into the fray, a Virgo prefers not only to analyse the situation carefully, but also to construct different scenarios or deduce the possible consequences that could arise.
Perfectionism is a Virgo's undoing in this life. For a Virgo there are literally not many things that can displease or irritate others. But perfectionism is something else entirely.
Once taken to the extreme, it becomes a problem, both for the person concerned and for others.
In addition to the usual obsessive-compulsive behaviour displayed by some perfectionists, which a Virgo may also exhibit, there is the pursuit of perfection in everything they do.
School, work, impressions made on other people, and even fun activities turned into competitions are possible targets for them.
Everything has to be top-notch, without any flaws or imperfections. That's why they spend a lot of time checking if things are exactly as they should be before putting them into operation.
Although perfectionism acts as an impulse, a channelling of his intellectual powers in a certain direction, it also has potential disadvantages, as we can clearly see.
A Virgo needs to have a plan for everything, no exceptions. Especially when going out with friends and family, they need to be in total control and know exactly what is going to happen, when it is going to happen and how everything is going to fit together.
Every detail counts, and a Virgo native is dead without the details. Without a plan in mind, they don't commit to anything, because they don't know what to expect and how to react to spontaneous invitations.
Plus, they're great at fixing your life. Do you have problems and can't seem to solve them? Your Virgo friend is there for you and can't wait any longer to come to your place, analyse the situation and systematically break it down to the lowest possible level, after which the solution part takes place.
Although they are very open to the problems of others and very helpful and generous, their own problems are generally kept under the radar.
They do not like to let others carry their burdens or share their lives unless necessary. In intimate relationships, the initiative should always be taken by the partner, followed by a confession, which is quite deep and complex.
Very ingenious and unique when it comes to showing their love, Virgo natives are, more often than not, misunderstood or not understood at all.
The ways in which they express themselves are diverse and quite special, so attention is paramount.
Apart from their high perfectionism, which makes them over-analyse things and pay the utmost attention to everything around them, there is also the Virgo's own sensitivity, which makes them unique.
They are able to remember even the smallest of things you have said, and it affects them a lot. So it's a good idea to watch your words next time.
