This man lives almost entirely on a practical, material level, and he has little use for the abstractions of storybook
romance. Of course, the whole problem may be academic anyway, since it will take no little effort to bring him
anywhere near the threshold of a man-woman relationship in the first place. He is not the type to serenade you
beneath your boudoir window. You will have a long, lonely wait on your moonlit balcony until he starts climbing
the rose trellis (or the fire escape, if you live in a walk-up).
Actually, Virgos are deeply involved with love from earliest childhood, but not the Romeo-Juliet kind of
love . His chief way of expressing the word is concerned with unselfish devotion to family, friends and those
weaker or more disorganized than himself. He was born with an instinctive love of work, love of duty and
discipline and devotion to the helpless. Even the uninvolved Virgo, who does not quite reach such heights, feels
slightly guilty that he is not living up to a selfless ideal in someway.
The kind of love which displays itself in dramatic emotions, sentimental promises, tearful declarations and
mushy affections, not only leaves a Virgo man cold, it can frighten him into catching the nearest bus or train out of
town. (Planes are too fast and too expensive for him, unless he is really desperate.) But he can be melted if the
temperature is just right, even though he seems to be made of a combination of steel and ice. There are definitely
ways to the Virgo heart. Secret ways, Aggressive pursuit is not one of them. Neither is coquetry nor sexuality, as
many a flirtatious vamp and slinky siren has learned, to her surprise and disappointment.
Although he is never obvious, Virgo can be a master of the art of subtle seduction. A couple of
generations of women who have trembled inside when a certain Frenchman smiles his shy, gentle smile can tell
you all about it. He may not be of my generation, but I too get butterflies in the heart region when I see or hear
The virgo man is a blend of sharp intellect and solid earth. He can be detached enough to break lots of
hearts with a cool kind of flirting, but his critical analytical sense and his fastidious discrimination seldom allow
these frequent excursions to leave the platonic arena. It has to burn with a white heat to produce real passion in a
Virgo. His modesty and selectivity alone prevent undue promiscuity. Of course, there may be an occasional fall
into an earthy, physical experience, but such indiscretions are the exceptions, rather than the rule. The rule is
aloof interest. I know one Virgo man who accepted a part in one of those really Raw “for adults only” films, but he
did it strictly for the cash-he was flat broke at the time-and he still blushes when anyone mentions it. Natually, a
man is a man, and not all Virgos remain technical virgian, but they do always remain pure in outlook. There’s
invariably something clean and chaste about Virgo love, Which is never allowed to Become soiled-even in the mist
of passion-no matter what unfortunate events may give the outward appearance of casualness.
He is a difficult man to stir emotionally. He can go for a long time without feeling any burning need for a
permanent mate. It is enough to make you cry if you have set your cap for him. You will wonder if he is made of
marble or if he was born without a heart. No, he is not made of marble and yes, he does have a heart. Be patient.
To her who wait comes eventual success.
