Virgo - Virgo Love Compatibility - Virgo Couple in Love

Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac and includes all those born from 23rd of August to 23rd of September. The romantic compatibility between two partners of this zodiac has a tendency to veer between extremes – ranging from a high degree of mutual understanding to an equally high level of expectations from each other.

The most significant characteristic of the Virgo is perhaps their desire for perfectionism. And it is this quality which holds the potential both for making or breaking their romantic relationships. 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 when two Virgos begin dating, they are likely to take every care that everything is perfect – right down from the creases in their outfit when they out together to the ambience in the restaurant where they go to have dinner. This kind of perfectionism is not well understood by other signs and in fact most would find it quite impossible to live up to the Virgo’s impossibly high standards. However with each other, the Virgo will be able to be their true selves and when straightening a picture on the wall or brushing away a barely visible speck of dust, they know that they are in no danger of appearing eccentric to their partners.

At the same time this drive for perfection can be cause for disharmony between two Virgos. Each will expect the other to live up to their own high standards in almost all areas of their relationship which could range from organizing a party to bringing up their children. Over time, the constant pressure to meet the high expectations of a partner can take its toll on the relationship and there might come an occasion when one of them will succumb to a breakdown or opt for a relationship where there is greater acceptance of human errors.

Guided by their desire for perfection, Virgos also tend to have a penchant for criticism. Since they live by their own high standards, they expect the same from everyone else too and thus will not hesitate to point out a flaw in their fellow humans, even it is in a loved one. Interestingly, this trait of the Virgos can go either way in their relationship – if both are willingly to take the criticism from a partner in a constructive spirit, it can lead to better mutual understanding and improvement. But on the other hand, it can create an atmosphere of too much nit-picking and thus eventually bring about stress and negativity.

Another significant quality of a Virgo is their bent for practicality. With earth as their ruling element, the Virgo is grounded in everyday reality and motivated by material success in any venture or responsibility. What this means for Virgo lovers is that moonlit drives by the sea or poetry reading sessions by the fireside will hold little appeal. Rather they will be more eager to go out and get the best tickets to the opera for their beloved or ensure that they have the best rooms in the hotel on their seaside vacation. While this trait works wonderfully well to ensure that Virgo partners lead a comfortable life together, one that is as much marked by clockwork precision as by material security, down the line they might feel their relationship lacking in something. And this ‘something’ in all likelihood will be a sense of emotional belonging, of being connected to each other on a deeper level than everyday companionship or occasional sex. To add to this, the Virgo is often unable to communicate their deepest feelings and desires to others. While an air sign like the Gemini or Libra is  also rather emotionally distant, they nevertheless possess the capacity for effective communication with which can express their own unique way of loving a partner. However as an earth sign, the Virgo is often more comfortable expressing their love in terms of practical gestures rather than words. This in turn leaves the relationship at the mercy of half-baked guesses and assumptions. So if two Virgo partners plan to be together, they will need to find a way to effectively communicate with each other.

Also, the Virgo tends to be more of a workaholic than others. Being ruled by the planet Mercury who was the busy messenger of gods in Roman mythology, Virgos have a tendency to take on more responsibility than they can comfortably handle; as a result they drive themselves too hard and are often fraught with a kind of nervous anxiety. This tendency in a Virgo-Virgo pairing can leave the couple barely any time to enjoy intimate leisure or an active social life. Though the Virgo is not particularly social in nature and thus unlikely to crave for company, the bond of mutual friends and family ties can often be quite effective in keeping a couple together. Such partners not only enjoy common social pursuits but sometimes close friends and family members can also play a constructive role in ironing out differences between a couple, at least in the initial stages.

On the plus side however, Virgos are imbued with a deep sense of commitment. So once they take on the responsibility of a relationship, each can be assured of the other’s whole-hearted efforts towards making it a lasting success. Then again the Virgo is a mutable sign which means that they are quite flexible and thus can be expected to adjust well to each other’s personality traits and priorities in a relationship. Finally it is the combination of their sense of commitment together with their adaptability which serves to increase the chances of a Virgo finding lasting happiness with someone from their own zodiac sign.
