It’s not easy to make sense of this peculiar Earth sign… Or is it?
I will reveal a little secret – Virgo men aren’t all that mysterious. You just need a little guidance.
How does a Virgo man test you? How is that different from him playing you? What can you do to make him obsessed with you?
If you want to know the answers to these questions, just read on, and you’ll have them.
How Does A Virgo Man Test You? 15 Ways
Are you trying to figure out whether your Virgo man is testing you but don’t know exactly what to look for? In that case, here are the 15 most common ways they do it:
1. Are you emotionally intelligent?
Yes, a Virgo guy will want to know all about your past traumas and your triggers. Most importantly, he’ll want to know how self-aware you are.
He doesn’t want a woman who keeps talking about trivial things and isn’t at all interested in matters of her own mind.
You can only win his heart if you have a high emotional IQ, that is, a deep knowledge of your own nature and are capable of understanding the soul of someone else.
2. How far into the future do you look?
A Virgo man is never fully present. A part of their mind always visualizes their perfect future and all they want to achieve in it.
Are you that type of person too? Or are you not a big fan of detailed planning after all?
If it’s the latter, I’m afraid he’ll fall out of love with you very soon…
Not caring about the future with the same intensity he cares about it is a sign for him not to try so hard anymore…
3. Do you have boundaries?
A lack of boundaries also means that you won’t tolerate the boundaries another person sets. How does a Virgo man test you when it comes to this?
Well, he might send you a lot of texts or ask you out on numerous dates to see how much you value your time.
Naturally, he will be pleased if he notices your devotion to him. However, if you don’t have anything else going on in your life but him, he’ll see that as a sign to stay away.
He admires the kind of woman who appreciates herself enough to have a perfectly balanced life instead of having him as her sole focus.
So, practice setting boundaries! You’ll have a more healthy lifestyle, AND you’ll make your Virgo man miss you like crazy!
4. Do your values match his?
Virgo’s intellectual nature will never allow him to date someone whose values are different from his own. So, how does a Virgo man test you to check this?
Well, he does it by asking you hypothetical questions where he’ll try to see if you would behave according to his rules in life.
Differences may be cute, but that depends on what they are. This is why if he notices that your views on life strongly oppose his, he’ll reject you without a second thought.
5. Are you consistent in your behavior?
Would you call yourself a changeable woman? Do your wishes alter in a matter of seconds?
Just so you know, a Virgo guy isn’t likely to put up with that.
He will want consistency in all things. If he can’t even get to know you properly because you don’t even know who you really are, that will be his cue.
You might want to dig deeper into your mind to discover your true desires. Only then can you make a Virgo man fall in love with you.
6. Do you like intellectual debates?
Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, so you can bet he’s good at finding the perfect topic!
But, what he’s especially good at and aroused by, are intellectual conversations. That’s a major turn-on for this zodiac sign.
Are you the kind of woman who can engage in these conversations, or do you get bored by them?
Let me tell you straight away – if you’re similar, you will find an emotional connection like no other.
But, if you try pretending only for his sake, you will eventually get tired, and you’ll both be at a loss.
Besides, he will probably know if you’re faking it because when such a bond truly exists, you can just feel it in the air. And when it doesn’t… you feel nothing at all, regardless of what you say.
7. How would you react if he suddenly disappeared?
You may think that the act of ghosting is a sign that he’s not interested in you, but it might just be the opposite…
Maybe your Virgo man likes you too much but still wants to test you this way to see how you will react.
If you make a big deal out of his disappearance instead of calmly asking him if something is wrong, he’ll lose interest just like that.
A Virgo man likes a woman who will not overreact if he wants some space, but someone who will give him as much time as he needs.
8. Will you stick to the plans you made?
Yes, of course, a man will make plans with you if he likes you. But, this can also be a test. He wants to see how much you appreciate the time you spend together.
So, if you’re continuously late or always leave early for no legit reason, he will know where he stands.
Let’s be frank. We all have personal lives to deal with, but if you keep making up excuses to get away from him, maybe you are the one who doesn’t like him very much.
Perhaps you’re in the middle of a test of your own, but you should know that a test shouldn’t last that long because, after a while, it just turns into a game, and people’s feelings get hurt.
9. How do you handle constructive criticism?
In reality, a Virgo guy is just being himself here. He will tell you honestly how he feels about the way you look or act. However, honesty can be used as a tactic too.
He might genuinely dislike your T-shirt or how you acted towards the waiter. So, he will kill two birds with one stone.
He will express his thoughts so you can get to know the real him, but at the same time, he will see if you can handle who he is.
If your insecurities make you overreact instead of peacefully asking him to elaborate, that will be his cue that he shouldn’t pursue a more serious relationship with you.
10. How loyal are you?
Every man wants a loyal woman who is devoted to nobody but him. That’s a pretty reasonable wish, isn’t it? But how does a Virgo man test you on it?
Well, he might introduce you to some of his guy friends. He might even tell them to be a bit flirty with you, so he can observe your body language and the way you talk.
Or, he might even text you from another account to see if you’ll continue the conversation. Pretty twisted, right? But, that’s his way of confirming your loyalty.
Once he becomes sure that he can trust you, he’ll abandon his ways and be entirely devoted to you in return.
11. Are you driven to succeed?
Are you a couch potato who never strives for greatness? Do you refuse to start any kind of project because you’re afraid to get out of your comfort zone?
If so, your sapiosexual Virgo male won’t be impressed.
After all, he is a perfectionist who takes care of every little thing because his inner Icarus never sleeps.
He wants a mirror soul who will understand the level of his ambitions because they’re really not that different. If he notices that you lack the enthusiasm to succeed, he will definitely break up with you.
12. Are you willing to help others?
Are you so arrogant that you refuse to help anyone? Are you eager to take all the credit for yourself?
If you are either of these, your Virgo man won’t be pleased. He will definitely put your kindness to the test.
He wants a woman he can always rely on, and a woman others can rely on, too. He wants to be proud to call you his own.
If you’re indifferent to other people’s troubles and only focus on fulfilling your own needs, his attraction to you will cease as soon as he realizes your true nature.
13. Do you really love him?
Has he ever forgotten your anniversary? Or, has he forgotten things about himself that you had to remind him of?
Well, we aren’t that likely to forget the little things from our own personal life, so if he does that, chances are that he’s just testing you.
He wants to see if you care enough to remember.
This one’s sort of adorable, isn’t it? You can’t even blame him for it.
14. Are you in control of your own emotions?
We all have bad days… bad periods, too. But, if you are continuously negative and unable to handle your own emotions, he won’t enjoy your company very much.
How does a Virgo man test you on this? Well, he either just observes your behavior, or he brings up a sensitive topic to see how you’ll react.
He wants someone stable enough not to endanger his own emotional control.
So, I’m sorry, but if you’re having trouble controlling your feelings, perhaps dating a Virgo guy isn’t the best choice for you.
But, if you really can’t give him up, maybe you ought to take care of yourself first. Learn to love yourself a little bit more so that you can be more ready to be loved by someone else.
15. How compatible are you?
He may be attracted to you, but that’s not enough to keep a Virgo man interested. He wants to get to the bottom of who you truly are.
What do you do when you’re sad? What is your definition of fun? Do you care about politics?
If he’s not fascinated by your answers, your looks can’t save you…
He’s not a shallow person. He wants someone he can truly connect with, and if you’re not that person, he’ll have no trouble walking away from you.
Will A Virgo Lead You On?
Yes. It’s rare, but it happens.
Maybe he’s just not ready for a relationship right now. Maybe he is devoted to his studies and doesn’t want any distractions, but he’s still looking for some excitement.
But he might also want a partner but fear intimacy due to his past relationships.
Either way, it indeed is possible that he is just playing you. You just need to pay closer attention to the signs.
5 Signs A Virgo Man Is Playing You
I get your struggle. It can be pretty hard to determine his true intentions. So, then, how do you know if a Virgo man is playing you?
Here are 5 signs that can help you with that:
1. Is he giving you mixed signals?
Yes, sending mixed signals all the time may be a sign of commitment issues. However, it may also be a sign that your Virgo man is just playing you.
Someone who’s truly interested in you will always show you. Even if they’re afraid of love and struggle with self-doubt, they will find a way to make you feel loved.
Besides, a guy who’s unable to do that isn’t worthy of your time. Why even bother? You deserve so much more.
2. Does he avoid conversations about the future?
If you notice that your Virgo man ignores you every time you bring up the topic of the future but doesn’t mind having fun with you, that’s a red flag.
That’s either because he’s afraid of losing you or because he intends to leave you once he has had his share of the fun.
You will know the right answer by the amount of love he gives you. But also, if something doesn’t feel right, that’s usually because it isn’t… Always remember to trust your gut.
3. Does he hide your relationship?
Is he intimate in private but hides from you whenever you see each other in public? Do none of his friends know that he’s involved with you?
If that’s the case, I hate to break it to you, but he doesn’t take you seriously at all…
He wants all the benefits of a relationship without making any real effort. You aren’t acknowledged as his girlfriend yet because he never intended to do that in the first place.
He doesn’t really care about you but rather what you can do for him. Do what’s best for you and leave.
4. Does he give you the silent treatment?
If you notice that he’s playing mind games, that’s your best sign that you should stay as far away from him as possible.
A man who values your presence in his life will never leave you wondering what you did wrong. If you have a fight, he will remain calm and try to solve the problem.
When he decides to stay silent instead of seeking a solution, then you know he’s not the right man for you. You don’t need someone who’s so emotionally immature in your life.
After all, you are looking for a partner, not a child to raise, are you not?
5. Did he not put a label on your relationship?
Does he keep flirting with you without ever fully committing? Do you feel like you’re in a situationship?
Well, that’s a clear sign that he doesn’t care about you as much as you’d like him to. If he did, he’d want to be official.
Of course, it’s understandable to want to get to know someone before entering a relationship, but if it’s been a long time since you first started talking, that’s a major red flag.
He isn’t all that serious about you…
How Do You Make A Virgo Man Obsessed With You?
If you want to seduce him to the point where he’s addicted to you, worry not, because all you need to do is heed the following pieces of advice:
- Prove to him how intelligent you are. Beat him at his own game.
- Don’t forget that his love language is acts of service, so take care of him and his needs.
- Learn how to give and take constructive criticism. See it as a learning opportunity.
- Impress him with your high maturity levels. Steer clear of unnecessary drama.
- Be a woman of principle. Know what you want and fight for it.
Virgo Man’s Compatibility With Other Zodiac Signs
Who is a Virgo man compatible with? Who does he make an ideal match with?
Well, zodiac signs that go well with him are Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.
On the other hand, a relationship is least likely to succeed with Gemini, Leo, and Sagittarius.
They aren’t compatible with a Virgo woman either because their similarities might scare them away and drive them apart.
Either way, a low compatibility level isn’t all that important. Virgo is a mutable sun sign, which means he’s ready to compromise if you are, too!
You can cross ”How does a Virgo man test you?” off your list because we’ve got that one covered!
I hope you can now tell the difference between him testing you and playing you. If it’s the latter, leave and stay single. If it’s the former, though, know that it’s only temporary.
Actually, be flattered that he wants to test you because that’s just a Virgo man in love!
