Breakups and Virgo




The most critical sign of the Zodiac? In many people’s eyes it has to be Virgo! For which reason more breakups tend to occur with Virgo people than with any other star sign. Inborn in Virgo is a lifelong search for perfection – embodied by its symbol, the Virgin. Never fully satisfied with their efforts, Virgos are often martyrs to anxiety, plagued by self-doubt and incorrigible workaholics. Small wonder they have gained a reputation for being a bit neurotic! 

In reality, however, most Virgos are fairly quiet, humble and well intentioned souls who would go out of their way to do you a good turn. The big trouble they have is that, in genuinely trying to be helpful, they’re often incredibly picky, with an annoying compulsion to point out all those little improvements that would make you a better person but which you probably don’t want to hear about. Many Virgos find it impossible to resist foisting their high standards onto others.


If you’ve ended a relationship with a Virgo, it’s probably because you can't stand any more of their nit-picking, their obsession with detail or their paranoia about health and cleanliness. You may well be tired of them endlessly recounting their ailments, complaining about everything that’s wrong in their life, or always being wrapped up in their job. But what’s likely to get on a Virgo's nerves about you?

What you need to understand, when a Virgo dumps you, is that it’s usually because you're unwilling or unable to live up to their lofty ideals. Maybe you don’t have a sufficiently strong work ethic, maybe you’re too disruptive of their carefully ordered routine. Or maybe they just can’t take your sloth, inertia and all your undesirable little habits any more.


To avoid breakups with Virgo - or win back a Virgo ex - you basically have two choices. On the one hand you can make a big effort to reform your ways and try in vain comply with their unreachable standards. On the other hand you can make life a lot easier for yourself by admitting your failings, acting helpless and pleading for their assistance.
Get yourself out of trouble with a Virgo by actively encouraging them to do what they like most: i.e. pick up after you, run round after you and generally make a dogsbody of themselves. Okay, it would send most other signs running for cover yet curiously, this is by far the best way to get back with - or hang onto - a Virgo lover. Always desperate to make themselves useful, having nothing to do is this sign's idea of hell. So next time a Virgo starts reeling off their list of must-dos, stop arguing. Just give in and let them sort it all out for you.


• Don't be offended by their criticisms - they just like to get everything right.
• Take their anxieties seriously - they're big worriers and need a lot of reassurance and support.
• Clean up your act - hygiene, order and wholesomeness are very important to these guys.
