What You Need To Know About Dating A Virgo

When it comes to dating, there are a few things of which to be aware. Are you loyal? Do you sleep with the fan on? And what's your sign? These days, knowing your partner's zodiac sign is just as important as meeting the family. I mean, if you don't know their sign, are you even dating? In the age of Tinder swipes and Co-star compatibility, understanding your significant other's cosmic blueprint is much more complex than just reading about your sun sign.


Knowing your partner's big three, or sun, moon, and rising, is like spilling all the tea about your best friend. Each offers a wealth of knowledge about how the person operates, what motivates them, and how they express themselves in love and romance. One sign you definitely want to know more about when dating is Virgo. Here's what you need to know if you find yourself paired with the Earth virgin.

They already know everything about you

Virgos are the detailed note-takers of the zodiac. Ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and logic, Virgos are quite cerebral and have constant mental activity in flux, according to Astrograph. As an earth sign, they are grounded and steadfast and work in service to others. In the early stages of dating a Virgo, you'll notice they move slowly in love, cautiously taking note of every interaction, as well as your home, friends, and family.


Virgos like to have a pulse on all the inner workings of the person they are dating to get the full picture. There's never getting anything past a Virgo's eye, and even if they don't say it aloud, they notice everything. Virgos are hardworking and admire a partner who equally is striving toward a goal in life and believes in material success (via Café Astrology). This is why they do well with other practical earth signs, like Tauruses and Capricorns.

They show love by organizing

Dating a Virgo could very well mean living with an obsessive-compulsive clean freak. If there's one thing they hate, it's clutter. As an earth sign, Virgos have an obsession with organization, practical matters, and discipline, per Tarot. If you're lucky enough to have a Virgo as a partner, don't be surprised if their version of fun is impromptu cleaning sessions in the middle of the day. Additionally, they are incredibly nurturing, and because of their unique eye that seeks to sort and arrange, they're known as the helpers of the zodiac, according to Astro Style. Put another way, they simply can't help but rearrange their boyfriend's medicine cabinet and alphabetize bookshelves. 


What might feel like an overstepping of boundaries with honest opinions and erratic cleaning is how Virgos show love. Their know-it-all attitude stems from a microscopic vision that can see an idealized version of everything. It's important to know they aren't nagging or trying to change you; they simply can't help but notice what needs fixing. Most importantly, Virgos show us how to love ourselves because they notice the mundane in nurturing and minute details that make all the difference. Take heed to how a Virgo loves on you and let it reflect how you should love yourself.
