Virgo Friendship Compatibility
Virgo's Friendship Style
Don't be offended if Virgo turns down the first invite you extend although Virgos are kind and friendly to everyone, they may have some walls around them, built to protect themselves and the circle of friends they already have. This sign takes friendship very seriously, and is also very good at putting themselves (and their energy reserves) first. That's why Virgos won't take on a friend that they don't think they'd be able to sustain. So while Virgo is happy to confab in the locker room before a gym class, it may be years before he or she finally says yes to that coffee after class invite.
Once you have a Virgo friend, you have a friend for life. They can also be your conscience, happy to give an opinion and letting you know if you're not doing your best. Virgos demands excellence from everyone in their lives (especially their friends), and they're quick to point out if they don't think you're living up to your potential. Because Virgo chooses friends carefully, he or she respects the "friend" label and expects you to do the same. A Virgo hates when friends cancel last minute, and this sign is only interested in friends on whom they can rely.
Best Friend Match for Virgo: Scorpio
Grounded Virgo can help keep intense Scorpio in check, while passionate Scorpio can pull low-key Virgo out of his or her comfort zone. As when the sea meets the beach, when watery Scorpio meets grounded Virgo, it can be hard to tell where one person ends and the other begins we're talking that sort of BFF match where both parties are telepathic. Scorpio and Virgo both need plenty of solo time to unwind, so they won't begrudge each other for turning down invitations. These signs also take friendship very seriously, and they believe in commitments. They don't let each other down, they're happy to tell each other hard truths, and they're willing to be with each other during the hard times as well as the fun times. And when these two signs get together over a glass of wine? They can both let loose, and are especially adept at bringing out each other's senses of humor.
How to Make Friends With a Virgo
Be low-key. Virgo doesn't like overstepping boundaries, and too many texts, calls, or social media messages can feel like crowding. And don't take a turned-down invitation personally your would-be Virgo friend may just be too busy right now to give you the quality time that you so obviously deserve.
How to Stay Friends With a Virgo
Commit. Virgos value friendships, and even when their life is crazy busy, they'll drop anything if a friend needs them. Of course, they expect the same in return. Flakiness, even if you've got a lot going on, will make a Virgo question your investment in the friendship.
3 Reasons Why Virgos Make Great Friends
- As perfectionists, Virgos will tell you when you're not living up to your potential and they'll inspire you to make them proud.
- Blessed with a wry sense of humor that only their inner circle gets to see, Virgos will make you laugh more than anyone else in your life.
- A problem solver by nature, Virgo can help whether you need to build a piece of furniture, revamp your resume, or solve a tricky personal problem. While they'll never overstep, this sign's logical, rational approach to life can help you sail through the most complicated issues.
