Virgos are nothing if not perfectionists. If given a job, they will drown themselves in it and emerge only when it is done. But done, according to the highest standards in their personal rulebook. This is because they believe that if a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well. So if you are planning to ask your Virgo girlfriend out this Friday evening, make sure that you have planned the date down to the last detail - like the color of the ribbon on the bouquet of flowers. Virgos do not like shoddy work and if she finds you careless about dates, she may see this as a hint that you tend to take personal relationships with equal nonchalance.
Another trait which closely goes with their perfectionism is the Virgo’s meticulous nature. They go into the heart of every issue or task and examine it with minute detail. So you can expect the same close attention focused on your relationship. Your Virgo girlfriend may go into the implications of every word and gesture from you, especially in the early stages of your relationship when she still doesn’t know you very well. On the other hand, you may be flattered by the effort she will take to make you happy or the hard work that she will willingly put into the relationship. On your birthday, she may just decide to surprise with a home-cooked dinner, complete with sparkling dinnerware, your favorite music and the champagne cooled to the exact degree of perfection.
One of the most pleasing aspects of a Virgo girlfriend is her willingness to help. Like others of her Zodiac she is not one to shy away from hard work and commitment, especially if it will help others in some way. Perhaps this is because she is ruled by the planet Mercury who in classical Roman mythology was the extremely busy messenger of gods, racing against time to deliver missives from one divine being to another. While this trait of selfless service can be one of the top draws in a woman, if overdone it is likely to scare many a guy away. A Virgo woman can easily become insistent and overbearing in her desire to do something for someone but especially to do it in the right way.
Eve though, Virgos bear the symbol of the Virgin, it does not automatically stand to imply that they are prudish or sexually repressed. While wild passion does not rank among their top priorities in a romantic relationship, they do not shy away from coming close to their partners – albeit in a more private and inhibited manner. The zodiac symbol of the Virgin rather implies the modest and humane nature of Virgos. According to an interesting account, the Virgin actually symbolizes the goddess of the harvest. Depicted with a sheaf of corn in her hand, she stands for the fruit of labor or the harvest that one reaps after putting in the right amount of hard work. This too is an apt symbol for Virgos who are known for their industrious nature.
The downside of the Virgo’s meticulous and industrious personality is they are apt to become the warning signs of the “All work and no play” syndrome. It is not uncommon to find workaholics among the ranks of Virgos and your girlfriend too may be one of them. So if you find your date appearing almost an hour late on account of being held up at work or even putting in some overtime on a Friday evening, more likely than not she is a Virgo. While this overlapping of the professional life into personal time may be disconcerting for her partner, it is well to remember that a Virgo woman will bring the same amount of dedication and investment into a relationship when the latter gets her full attention.
The flipside of a Virgo’s drive for perfectionism is an exacting even critical nature. She may judge her partner by the same impossibly-high standards that she holds in her own life and demand that he too maintain them in their personal relationship. This may be asking for too much from a guy who is content to laze away the better part of a Sunday in the company of beer cans or who does not think too much of the fact that he did not celebrate the second anniversary of the first time he had kissed his girlfriend. But if that girlfriend is a Virgo, she is likely not only to remember the day but even notice that her partner has forgotten all about it.
The element associated with Virgos is the Earth and this is in keeping with their grounded natures. A Virgo woman will thus be practical and concerned with activities which have a tangible outcome. Blessed with a sensible mind and a discriminating eye, she will be attracted only to those ventures, professional as well as personal, which can be taken to a logical conclusion. The airy brilliance of Geminis or the flowing imagination of the Pisceans is not for her. Rather she will give more attention to details of your credit rating, the kind of relationship you share with your parents and whether your tie matches the jacket.
One of the interesting aspects of the meticulous nature of Virgos is the attention they pay to matters of health and diet. So while dating your Virgo girlfriend, you may be given a lowdown on the merits of organic food and the best way to avoid cardio-vascular problems in future. While all this may appear sententious to some guys, the truth is few things in life are as important as sound health. And what better way to follow a balanced lifestyle than have the love of your life inspire you towards it!
