​It might be hard to get to know a Virgo man at first because they’re quite guarded. They have often been through a lot which pushes them to be reserved and wary of anyone who puts them at risk of being vulnerable. They may not come off passionate from the start because they want to make sure they know what they’re getting into first.

It helps them to be friends first. Once they cave to their feelings, they become extremely loyal and protective and let you in on their dark but hilarious sense of humor.

As an Earth sign, the Virgo man is grounded to the earth and not to social ties and expectations. This makes it easy for him to be adapt but can also make it hard for him to be in one place for too long. He has an edgy side that can come off as impulsive but is great to have as support in difficult times.

The Virgo man loves to take on life’s challenges but that doesn’t translate that into matters of the heart. It’s quite scary for him to fall in love and risk giving up his freedom.

Even In Love He’s Stubborn

The power dynamic in a relationship with a Virgo can be a constant battle. The Virgo man likes to think of himself as the dominant partner. He often comes with a whole set of rules. His intentions aren’t to be stubborn but he simply has a system. He likes things done in his chaotically organized way.

Stand your ground because he’s likely not going to admit that he’s wrong or missed a detail. What usually happens is that he’ll analyze your criticism and come back with a delayed apology.

Virgos a sign ruled by Mercury, which gives him the ability to be witty. His cleverness can be quite charming and he definitely has a way with words.

On top of that, his sign is associated with servitude. That means that when he finally caves to love, he is willing to go to any length to take care of his person, for as long as it’s done in practical ways. That means that he’ll take on projects or chores to help out for example.

​Another result of being ruled by Mercury is that a Virgo’s mind is racing at a 100 miles a minute. This makes him somewhat of a perfectionist as he wants to make sure everything is just right. He wants everything organized. Even if it looks messy to you he has a system and a method to his madness.

When it comes to relationships he can also have high standards that are sometimes hard to meet. However, he is able to adapt his definition of perfection to his love inetrest.

​Relationships with Virgos can have really high ups followed by real downs. Due to his need for perfection, he can be quite fussy, and the speed and logic of his brain can make him unpredictable. He can seem hard to please which can be frustrating for his partner.

On top of that, his way of communication isn’t always the nicest because it’s rushed and ruled by emotion. On the good days, he’ll be the best partner but on the bad days, you’ll need a lot of patience.

Virgo is most compatible with fellow earth signs or balanced by water signs. Tauras is able to respect Virgo’s work ethic and they are similar in their honesty and bluntness. However, Capricorn is just as ambitious and hardworking. They just get each other.

Then there’s water sign Cancer who balances out Virgo’s logical and practical brain with some affection. Cancer is emotional and intimate and makes a great team when matched with a Virgo. Yet Scorpios are deep thinkers who love alone time and will have a similar communication style to Virgos.
