They believe in true love. They despise flings and loathe people who take relationships lightly. If they find their perfect partner, they will give their best in the relationship. They don’t trust people easily, but for their loved ones, they’ll go the extra mile. They are pure lovers. But they don’t exude charm and don’t show much passion. This doesn’t mean they are disinterested. They just don’t make their emotions too obvious.
Virgos have attractive, with good facial features and well crafted bodies. The men have good physique. The women have delicate, yet distinctive features and a feminine physique. Scarlett Johansson is one such example. Virgos are elegant and are well dressed, which naturally makes them attractive. They pick the right accessories and the right brands. They are a classy lot! Grace and poise are their inborn qualities.

It is rare to find a Virgo who is very loud and boisterous, or a Virgo who brags and shows off too much. A Virgo does not show off that he/she is intelligent. They are subtle and understated. They are quiet, but full of substance. They are modest. Many times, their talents remain dormant until they open up at the right time. They don’t believe in just talking about their worth. They prove their mettle. They maintain a low key, in spite of their accomplishments. They don’t crave to be in the limelight. Their choices also reflect how hey like to keep it simple.

It’s more common to see a Virgo sitting by himself or herself rather than being comfortable in crowd. They don’t exactly dislike crowd, but they enjoy solitude more, because they find it more comforting. If they don’t like someone’s company, they’ll rather spend time with nature. Most Virgos are introverts. They require individual attention to blossom fully and come out in the open. They allow other people to take the center stage initially. It takes time and patience to fully understand a Virgo, because they are not outgoing.Most Virgos live in their heads. But underneath this shy reserve lies a wonderful person, ready to give you a lot of care and affection.

Even though a Virgo doesn’t show public displays of affection, they really care for the people they love. They take a lot of efforts to please their near and dear ones. They remain very attached to few people they love. They are humane and compassionate. They don’t like to see people suffering and offer a helping hand. They are empathetic toward the underprivileged. They are sensitive and understand the problems of other people. They are down to earth and will not insult anyone. The best possible example I can think of is Mother Teresa.
A Virgo is very resolute and will work towards his or her goals diligently. They are very meticulous. Talent, hard work and discipline make them successful in their respective fields. Their methodical approach and the will to succeed are their very strong points. They leave no stone unturned to achieve their goal. They practice rigorously to become experts in their fields.

A Virgo is a great researcher. Virgos tend to analyze every aspect of a thing and they rarely go wrong in judgements. They are very intuitive individuals. You can rarely pull the wool over a Virgo’s eyes. Their thinking minds always make them analyze the ‘why’ of any situation or any person. They leave no detail unnoticed. It is as if they are always with a microscope! Virgos are intellectuals and analyze the human psychology pretty well. The Virgo is probably the most analytical, of all the zodiac signs.

They may feel disenchanted when they fail to live up to their own standards. They appreciate sophistication. Sometimes, they may be so engrossed in the minute details that they miss the larger picture. They may, at times, be critical of people for their imperfections, but they mean to give advice.
