Virgo's ruling planet: ☿ Mercury.
As a rule, the behavior of a Virgo man can serve as a vivid illustration of the phrase, "The less we love a woman, the more we appeal to her." Perhaps this doesn't apply to every woman, but if a woman becomes interested in a Virgo man, his unapproachability and certain aloofness can ignite her curiosity.
Indeed, despite not naturally aspiring to be a romantic hero, the Virgo man's unusual restraint makes many beauties dream of going on a date with him. However, it's in vain: a Virgo man is least inclined to engage in fleeting romances. For him, love is primarily about responsibility and care, and in a partner, he seeks not just a passionate lover, but a life companion and a loyal friend.
Moreover, Virgo has very high expectations of his potential partner. She must possess a whole set of qualities of a "real person": honesty, intelligence, responsibility, and loyalty. In his search for his other half, he is willing to spend almost his entire life, which is why he often marries for the first time (and usually the last) at a fairly mature age. As for love affairs and intrigues, the practical Virgo has neither the time nor the desire to waste on them.
How to Win Over a Virgo Man
Virgo cannot be called a romantic. Aimless moonlit walks and impulsive acts done for the sake of love are all incomprehensible to his rationalistic mind. Therefore, if you want to melt the heart of a Virgo man, you'll have to approach it differently than with men of other signs. Forget about revealing outfits, sensuality, and captivating gazes when you're in the company of a Virgo unless you want to scare him away for good.
Dress very modestly, but tastefully, preferring subdued classic colors. Let him understand that he's in the presence of an intelligent and well-read conversationalist. Strive to be honest with him even in small matters, as only then might the Virgo man direct his masculine attention towards you.
Relationships with a Virgo Man
Although a Virgo man may search for his ideal partner for a long time, once he finds her, he won't be deterred by any difficulties. The fairy tale hero who slayed a dragon for the sake of a beautiful princess was likely a Virgo. Moreover, marrying the princess (which means you) will only be the beginning of a joint fairy tale in the case of a Virgo. Calmly, without pretense or unnecessary words, he will dedicate his entire life to you. He will do everything to ensure that you lack nothing, that your problems are solved, and that there is no reason for jealousy, but rather a single great reason for a peaceful and blissful family life.
Scandals, intense relationship discussions, and plate-breaking arguments will be absent from your interactions with a Virgo. However, he doesn't expect much from you in return. There are very few things in the world capable of disturbing a Virgo's equilibrium, and the main ones are criticism directed at him, disorder, and jealousy. The first two can elicit grumbling from him, while the latter may simply lead him to leave the family. Therefore, don't forget that a Virgo's wife, like Caesar's wife, must be beyond suspicion.
Virgo is an attentive and caring husband whom you can rely on in everything. He is intelligent, cultured, reliable, and although devoid of sentimentality himself, he will remember all the important dates for you, whether it's your wedding anniversary or your mother-in-law's birthday. By his side, you will always feel cozy and protected, just like in childhood. Or like in that reliable cave where the dragon-slaying prince led his beautiful princess to shield her from the storms and hardships of this mad world.
Virgo as a Father
Virgo doesn't have a strong inclination towards fatherhood, but once in that role, he devotes plenty of time and attention to the child. Responsibility is one of his main traits, and it manifests exceptionally well in the role of a Virgo man as a father.
