Maybe you’ve been struggling to get your Virgo man’s attention.

Or maybe he just needs a reminder of how great a catch you are.

Trust is hugely important to Virgoans. They will observe you vigilantly and keep a continuous mental score, weighing each of your actions.

If your Virgo man senses you’re trying to make him jealous on purpose, he’ll equate it to game playing, which is something he refuses to do.

And trust me, he is highly intuitive.

In other words, don’t go out of your way trying to make your Virguy jealous, and definitely don’t make it a show.

You almost need to convince yourself that you’re not trying to make him jealous.

I know, it’s not easy. But hey, you asked!

Have a deep conversation at a social event

Next time you and your Virgo man are at a party or some kind of social gathering, find someone to get into a long, interesting conversation with.

It should preferably be a one-on-one chat that you are really immersed in.

The more interested you are in talking to this person, the more wound up your Virgo will get.

See, Virgo men deep down want all of your attention.

When they’re not getting some of it, or when someone else is, they go a little nuts.

On the inside, anyway.

Keep doing you

In other words, be busy.

Have errands to run. Projects to finish.

You might consider joining an active club or group, such as a soccer team or book club—anything that keeps you busy.

Why does this work?

Because you can say “No” when he asks you to hang out, but also provide a legit reason.

Remember, this should be natural. It should not seem like a tactic.

Or like you don’t like the Virgo. Otherwise, he won’t see the point of pursuing or dating you.

You’re reminding your Virgo that you’re not hanging around waiting for him to want to see you.

Communicate on your terms

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication.

So even though Virgo men tend to be on the quieter side face-to-face, they’re very active communicators through other means.

Be on the lookout for texts, emails and even a good old fashioned phone call.

However, you should take some time getting back to him.

That is, if you want to know how to make a Virgo man jealous in a very normalized but effective way.

Don’t pause your conversation or activity just because he has contacted you.

This will be easy if he calls or texts while you’re out doing something else. 

That being said, you need to answer eventually. Otherwise, he might think you’re losing interest and back away himself. 

Just reply to him a little later, when it’s convenient.

(Carefully) give some friendly attention to other men

This is such a touchy one I almost don’t even want to add it to this list.

But if your goal is to get your Virgo man insanely jealous, this will do it.

You should know: He doesn’t like it when other dudes get physically close to you.

He may not say it, but chances are it gets under his skin just to see another man hug you. Particularly an attractive man or a guy friend of yours.

Yes, Virgo men are that territorial.

To get him going, post a picture of you and a guy friend with his arm around you (in a 100% friendly way).

If you’re a naturally touchy person, every time you touch other men, it bugs your Virgo guy.

But that’s the thing—it can’t be on purpose.

It has to be something that’s totally innocent on your part or the Virgo man will surely feel like you’re baiting him and he won’t take kindly to that.

It’s all too easy to cross a boundary with a Virgo man!

If you want to know what your Virgo man thinks of you and how to stop making mistakes with him, I highly recommend getting your hands on the in-depth guide Virgo Man Secrets.

Hang out with your friends without the Virgo man

Having a very active social life is an excellent (and enjoyable) way to inspire some jealousy in your Virgo man. 

The key is to have a social life outside of him.

A Virgo guy can easily get a little bummed out at the thought of you doing something fun with someone else, and not him.

So fill your calendar with brunches, social runs and cocktails after work. 

You want your Virgo man to understand he needs to try harder or you’ll make plans with someone else.

Have other priorities

To make your Virgo man jealous, you should have other things in your life that are important, even more important than him. 

Beyond keeping an active social life, stay ambitious in your career and develop hobbies. 

Virgo men value intelligence as well, so it’s even better if you can show him that you’re quite good at what you do, even in your spare time.

In addition, spend time on self-care. 

If you love working out, don’t skip the gym to hang out with him.

Feel free to turn down his dinner invitation for a quiet evening at home reading.

If he sees how highly you value yourself, he will respect you, too, and want to possess that value for himself.

What NOT to Do

Just as there are things that you can do to make a Virgo man jealous, there are also things that you should avoid like the plague. 

Lest you instantly become bad news in your Virgo’s eyes.


Be flaky or undependable

It’s good to be busy and have an full calendar, and it’s good sometimes to say no when he invites you to do things.

But that doesn’t mean that you should start canceling plans.

Virgos value dependability, so if he sees or experiences you being unreliable, he might reconsider the relationship.

Ignore the details

Little gestures are very important to a Virgo. 

Even if you’re trying to make him jealous, don’t skip the small stuff you do for him.

Go ahead and keep sending him a goodnight text like you always do before turning in for the night.

It’ll prove you do care about him, which he should never lose sight of.

Inflate your ego

While you should absolutely show your worth, do it in subtle ways. 

Flaunting or showing off will turn him off big time, as Virgos like graciousness and humility. 

Ignore him or his needs

Virgos tend to be on the shy side, so it’s not a good idea to ignore him, since he’s less likely than other men to ask directly for what he needs. 

It’s okay to let his calls go to voicemail or wait a few hours to respond to a text, but don’t act like he doesn’t exist.

Flirt with other men

This is flat out relationship suicide if you’re dating a Virgo man.

If he sees you acting interested in another guy, he’s likely to just cut you loose.

He doesn’t have time for players, and he doesn’t want to be with anyone who doesn’t value him above the rest.
