Virgo Man Personality, Traits & Characteristics

Virgo men are highly intellectual, as they are deep thinkers and articulate speakers. Also, they have an inner confidence which means that they aren’t overly concerned about what other people think, and always pursue their own unique interests. But, while they would never let someone else’s opinion dent their confidence, they are their own worst critics. Ambitious and perfectionists, reality always seems to fall short of their expectations.

Virgo men are constant self-improvers, and they also love reinventing themselves. There is nothing they like more than starting something new, as it means that they have an opportunity to start fresh, without the burden of any previous mistakes. They are determined and hardworking, and also love to track their progress. If you don’t track it, did it even ever really happen?

Likes & Dislikes

Depending on the topic, a conversation with a Virgo man can be like going down a rabbit hole. When they are interested in something, they seek deep and complete knowledge of that thing, and could talk about it all day.

They tend to have a minimalist aesthetic, in which everything has a purpose and a place. But don’t expect to see them posting photos of their perfectly organized objects on social media. They do things for themselves, not an audience.

While Virgo doesn’t concern themselves too much with the opinions of others, they do have trouble accepting criticism, as they never believe that they are wrong. They can also be a little too harsh when doling out their own criticisms.

Home Life & Family

A Virgo man’s home is usually perfectly clean and organized. Dishes are never left in the sink for more than a few minutes after use. This can make him hard to live with for some, but he actually doesn’t mind cleaning up after people. He finds cleaning cathartic, like cleaning the house is also cleaning his soul.

He is not the type of person who likes to visit with family and friends too regularly, but they are always in his heart.

Career & Money

Virgo men are ambitious, but what they are looking for is a career that is intellectually satisfying, rather than necessarily your typical picture of success. He likes to pursue his interests, and his deep knowledge of his specialist area, along with his work ethic, means that he has no problem finding success in his chosen career over time. He is happy to burn the candle at both ends to get things done as it is his passion, and he also feels deep levels of innate responsibility. The work he produces is always of a high standard, almost perfect…

Virgo men are excellent when it comes to saving money, as they know how to prioritize and pass on the little things when they have an eye on the big picture. They can have a tendency to prefer to save their dollars, rather than risk investing.

Virgo Man in Love & Relationships

Virgo men have a quiet self-confidence that is easy to see, but they can be a little reluctant to approach the object of a crush. This is because they also have an active self-critical voice inside their heads pointing everything about themselves that is not perfect. It can take them a little time to overcome that voice and put themselves out there.

When they are in a relationship, they are loyal and loving partners. Virgo men aren’t suspicious that their partners will betray them, but they can be a little paranoid that they aren’t good enough for their partner and that they will leave them.

Sexuality & in Bed

Virgo men tend to be traditional in bed and don’t really like to experiment with anything too unusual. The right partner can help break them out of their shell if they are in a space of comfort and trust.

Attracting a Virgo Man

Virgo men appreciate an intelligent and intellectual partner that they can exchange ideas with about the meaning of life. They also appreciate someone who is neat and well turned out, but in a natural way. They find over the top looks a bit of a turn-off.


Virgo men are most compatible with Pisces and Capricorn. Pisces’ outgoing but caring nature helps Virgo relax and share themselves with a bit more freedom. Capricorn shares Virgo’s love of organization and order. The two may live quite separate lives, but in a way that makes them both happy.
