THE VIRGO PARTNER
"She plucked from my lapel the invisible strand of lint (the universal act of woman to proclaim ownership). O henry (writer), Virgo Sun sign, born 11 September 1862.
Virgoans will be drawn out by your warmth and enjoy a thoughtful compliment, but will be repelled by overt show of physical affection or gushiness.
Keep your first date simple. See a film or a show with coffee afterwards, because Virgoans can be a little shy but are never lost for words when given something to critique. If the spark is there, you could find yourself talking till dawn, ranging over current affairs, music, politics, religion and the meaning of life.
Don't assume that because your Virgo is the embodiment of stylish understatement that you will be expected to be the same. Virgoans are often quite attracted to the outlandish or the quirky. Above all, they treasure scrupulous honesty, so be yourself and no one else.
