What a Virgo Man Likes in a Woman
If you’re here, you may have already heard it over and over again:
Virgo men like a clean, tidy appearance. Classic beauty/pretty face. Uber Femininity.
Well, I’m here to tell you, these traits are given way too much weight.
I know Virgo guys who are dating and married to women who are farmers (try having clean hands when you’re up at 4 a.m. digging in the dirt).
Women who live in overalls and wear not a speck of makeup.
Women who are by no means “classic” beauties but who are absolutely have their own brand of beauty shine through.
OK, yes, Virgo men have types that they tend to go for.
But let me assure you, it’s more about how you embrace and celebrate your own awesomeness that matters to a Virgo man.
That and how you make him feel.
So let’s talk about that now, my friend—here’s what a Virgo man likes in a woman.

Let’s talk about optimism first.
Why? Because if you’re trying to bag a Virgo man, you’ll want to make sure you don’t come across as a Debbie Downer.
Limit anything that sounds like complaining, too much sarcasm or sulkiness.
Your Virgo crush wants a woman who is a go-getter and excited about the future—that’s the type he can imagine sharing his own carefully planned and bright future with.
Virgo is one of the signs that takes a long time to trust you.
It’s nothing personal, it’s just one of the side effects of having a brain that goes into overdrive on analyzing every little thing all the time.
Want to show he can trust you?
Be consistent. Be somewhere you said you were going to be, on time.
Keep your promises and don’t try to make him jealous with other men (definitely don’t do that).
Just be up front, honest and straightforward with him, always.
2. Belief in Herself
We always hear that confidence is sexy, right?
For a Virgo man, it goes beyond a confident demeanor.
To get him not just to notice you, but idealize you, you should start practicing self-love right now and know deep in your bones how amazing you are.
It works because picky Virgo men want someone different.
Someone who stands out from the rest, and not in a loud way—in a mature way.
A woman who knows exactly who she is and isn’t afraid to compromise that for anyone is a real grown-up in his eyes, and sexy AF.
Something tons of Virgo men really go for is a sweet-natured type of woman.
Not a doormat, but a woman with natural sensitivity to others’ needs and emotions.
She doesn’t need to be a bleeding heart, but she should be a thoughtful and caring type of person if she really wants a Virgo man’s heart.
Be kind not just to your Virgo man, but also to others.
He’s a detail-oriented person and observes everything you do, and he will get the sense that you’re just putting on an act if you don’t treat others with the same respect and sensitivity.
As I mentioned earlier, Virgo men already have their futures planned out.
At least, they have their future projects planned out.
And the drive to do them.
Unsurprisingly, they like for you to have that same type of drive to accomplish your own goals.
It does kind of go hand-in-hand with the optimism and belief in yourself stuff.
Many times, Virgo men go after women who are driven to build their careers, but then there are Virgo men who marry domestic goddesses who become stay-at-home moms.
But even they have a drive to accomplish something, even if that’s to become the best damn stay-at-home mom ever.
It sounds kind of contradictory, but I never promised Virgo men weren’t contradictory (fun fact: they are, just low-key).
If that throws you for a loop, I would recommend giving Virgo Man Secrets a read so you can really understand exactly what they want, expect and, frankly, drool over.
Something that Virgo men tend to have in common is an attraction to a certain type of innocence.
But not inexperience or immaturity, that’s not what I mean.
This might be where the “cleanliness” comes into play that people talk about with Virgos.
For Virgo men, a kind of cleanliness of heart is what shines through.
They like women who have high moral standards, are humble and aren’t manipulative.
And yes, they like that sense of purity in the way you dress, too, as in not too skimpy or revealing.
Living that couch potato life?
Start collecting hobbies before you get involved with a Virgo man.
They’re way more attracted to a woman who has 87 things going on in her life right now and is trying to find time to devote to them equally than a woman who is sitting by the phone waiting for his call.
Virgo men admire industriousness and creativity.
If you want them to like you, make sure you’re busy with your own projects.
You’ll naturally be more interesting, show your drive and dedication and prove that you won’t be clingy (something that they hate) because you’re just too dang busy.
Virgo men are typically among the more grounded, practical types out there.
They aren’t likely to make impulsive decisions or fly off the handle, and they expect the same from their partners.
They like women who makes good decisions for the future—a woman who is already saving for retirement in her twenties, you know?
And of course, they like a woman who doesn’t freak out over small stuff.
If you’re the type who is generally calm, rational when she needs to be and doesn’t give in to drama, you’re checking some important boxes for a Virgo man.
7. A Sense of Humor
Who says Virgo men aren’t into women who can make them laugh?
This tends to get left out of the conversation about what attracts Virgo men to women, unfortunately.
Even the more serious Virgos enjoy it when you can make a witty joke and get them to smile.
Don’t underestimate comedy just because you’re dealing with the smarty pants of the zodiac.
OK, yes, Virgo men love a smart lady, too!
Do you have to have a master’s degree and a working knowledge of quantum physics? Maybe that’s an over-the-top example, but you get what I’m saying.
No, by the way. The answer is no, you don’t.
However, you should try to read up on things that interest you and engage your Virgo man in intellectual conversation.
Smart people are curious.
They allow themselves to wonder, daydream and explore.
Virgo men love this type of open-mindedness in a woman.
Be the type to ask questions, and don’t be afraid to look like you don’t know the answers—intelligence is about wanting to know, not pretending you know.
Bring up new topics you’re interested in and discuss them with a Virgo man.
Explore together—getting your Virgo man to think and see things in a new light through your own curiosity will become something he craves from you.
I hinted at this earlier, but something you’ll need to be for any Virgo man is independent.
Not needy or clingy in any way.
To a Virgo man, dating shouldn’t mean “giving up” your life, but adding to it.
So don’t give up your friends, work or the life you had before.
Don’t stop living your best life because your relationship changed, either.
Remember, a Virgo man is attracted to a woman who has plenty going on for herself.
Which means that you should keep doing you, and let your individual lifestyles compliment each other in a relationship.
Ultimately, if you’re serious about getting serious with a Virgo man, it’s highly recommended that you first understand who he is so you’re not caught by surprise by the hot and cold behaviors.
And, most importantly, so you don’t do the wrong thing in reaction. That’s all in Virgo Man Secrets.
