The Taurus woman and the Virgo man certainly sound like a good idea on paper. After all, they are both grounded earth signs that enjoy plugging away on stable daily routines, household maintenance, and family life. They both also appreciate the finer things in life and enjoy luxury and pleasure. They both have excellent taste and would enjoy hosting sophisticated soirees together, to the delight of all their friends.
That said, the Taurus woman, for all her earthly practicalities, has a tendency to apply a casual approach to life, preferring to live in the moment and to throw caution (and budget!) to the wind when the mood takes her. The Virgo man will likely want to temper the Taurus woman’s tendency to enjoy herself just a little too much, as he’s tighter on the purse strings and quite pragmatic when it comes to spending and accumulating possessions. If she’s the type of Taurus that hordes possessions, Virgo’s neat-freak persona will likely come screaming to the fore, as he becomes unable to cope with the literal and figurative mess.
The Virgo man is chivalrous almost to the point of being a little too invested. He likes to play the knight in shining armor whilst also being sensitive and respectful to the woman in his life. This certainly appeals to the Taurus woman, who loves to be placed on a pedestal and cared for and admired. Tet she is also deeply practical in nature, and the constant adoration may all become a bit much for her or seem a little silly after a while. The Taurus woman doesn’t mind playing the damsel in distress, but in reality, she is anything but, and the Virgo man’s theatrics in that department may leave her cold.
As two earth signs, the sexual compatibility here is likely to be solid. Both enjoy a sensual and practical approach in the bedroom, and sex is important to both the Taurus woman and the Virgo man. They each consider physical pleasure to be part and parcel of any successful relationship. As the Virgo man is so committed to chivalry, he may well feel as if sex is part of his role as a suitor, and this will suit the Taurus woman just fine! These two often come across as straight-laced and even boring, but behind closed doors, they are sensual and erotic.
What to expect on the first date:
The Virgo Man:
A date with a Virgo man can either seem like a job interview or it can be one of the most intriguing dates you’ve ever been on. The Virgo man is complicated in that he will want to make sure that he is making the right choice in a partner and so he may choose first date activities that test or show him something about his potential mate. That said, he will be chivalrous and attentive to the Taurus lady and will display an ability to laugh at himself once he has loosened up and becomes relaxed.
The Taurus Woman:
The Virgo man may come across as a little shy on a first date, mostly due to his tendency to over-analyze and intellectualize every detail. The Taurus woman’s disposition is likely to be a good antidote for this, as she’s gentle, patient, and placid in the face of her Virgo man’s slightly over-intense approach to dating.
Both signs appreciate aesthetics and feathering their own nests, so expect the Virgo man and the Taurus woman to set up a beautiful home full of high quality and well-made items. They will share the same values when it comes to practical matters and family life, although the Taurus woman is far more indulgent than the intensely practical Virgo man. The Virgo man will be there to gently remind Taurus when things have become too much and will help reign in her spending or tendencies to indulge in fine wine and good food.
The Virgo man will love playing house with the charming and sensual Taurus woman, but his approach to tidiness and order may grate on her over time. He can’t help but insist on cleaning the house even when everything is already perfect in her eyes. The Taurus woman, being ruled by Venus, is more opinionated, sensual, and direct in her approach to life, which could offend the rather strait-laced Virgo man’s sensibilities. This pair also has a tendency to fancy themselves as intellectuals, which can result in them coming across as a rather judgmental couple that considers themselves a cut above the rest. If they can tone this down, they’ll learn to have little fun together that’s less about lofty pursuits and highbrow activities.
Is the Virgo man & Taurus woman relationship likely to last?
This pair has a lot in common, which is always a positive start. They will be good at navigating the practicalities of daily life together. Their relationship will also often be founded on solid friendship and will be the glue that holds them together and allow them to go the distance together if they so choose. Both the Virgo man and the Taurus woman are naturally placid, so arguments between them will be rare and they will be able to discuss matters evenly and calmly.
How to Attract a Taurus Woman as a Virgo man:
The Virgo man doesn’t exactly have a tendency to flatter and woo a lady, which is good news because nothing could be less attractive to a Taurus woman, who values actions over fluffy speeches. Virgo men are naturally charming and flirtatious, but it’s also important to show the Taurus woman that you’re listening to her and are taking her needs and requirements in a life partner seriously. As a Virgo man you remember that Taurus women are slow burners, so don’t expect her to fall into your arms immediately just because you are used to being a hit with the ladies. That won’t work with her; you need to seduce her slowly. It will be worth it in the end.
How to attract a Virgo man as a Taurus woman:
Be warned, it is notoriously difficult to attract a Virgo man. He has a strict criterion when it comes to finding his ideal mate and treats the process as an intellectual puzzle to be solved. The best way to attract a Virgo man is by turning on the charm but keeping it classy and sophisticated. Virgo men are often said to be the most desirable of all the zodiac signs, as well as being incorrigible flirts, so if you do get together it means that you have snagged yourself a catch. This is a man with appealing traits to a woman, which can result in suitors jostling for him at every turn, so you need to make sure you stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons. If you do end up in a relationship together, it will be because you have met his strict requirements, which is flattering but also rather high pressure, as you will be expected to conform to his expectations at all times.
