Are Virgo Men Jealous In A Relationship?

Are Virgo men possessive or jealous? Well, the short answer is that they are not typically all that jealous, but they are territorial. Virgo men are overprotective of what they believe is theirs. But they really don’t make it very apparent. They’re more the type to sit back and observe to see what will happen.

It can be a bit confusing because a territorial Virgo man may be possessive and jealous. However, a jealous Virgo man may not necessarily be territorial. This can be quite overwhelming to understand!

Virgos have high integrity, and if you’re not doing anything wrong, they’ll see that, but they will still harbor anger toward the other person who seemed to be trying to get more from you than friendship.

Virgo men are sensitive and can sometimes be intuitive. They can tell when another man wants their woman. So he will not take it out on you as though it’s your fault, thankfully.

So in short, Virgo men can get jealous, and when they do, they try not to make it very obvious. If your Virgo man completely trusts you, he will believe in you, and jealousy will be a lot lower.

Do Virgo Men Get Jealous Easily?

Yes, they do, but they don’t like it when they feel jealous, so they try to keep it under wraps. This is something that is perceived as a weakness. If a Virgo man trusts you, he’ll maintain that trust unless you do something to shake it.

If he does somehow make it obvious, he’ll act callous or have a ticked-off look on his face. He won’t say anything, though. He may make a sarcastic remark that has nothing to do with the situation.

A Virgo man is possessive with his things and with his relationships. Not just his lover but also his children, his family, his friends, and anyone else he feels justified in claiming. He doesn’t want anyone interfering or trying to steal what he feels is his.

How Does A Virgo Man Act When Jealous?

A Virgo man, when jealous, will take you with him when he goes places and keep you close. He’ll make sure that other people know that you’re with him. Public displays of affection are not uncommon.

He’s marking his territory so that everyone knows who you are. In the case of social media, he’ll leave comments on your pictures or posts to let others know that you’re his.

He may not come out and say specifically that, but other things will let other men know “She is totally mine; I’m into her, so don’t even think about it”. Again, he won’t say that, but he will use other words that indicate that.

Anything he can do to in some way “mark” his territory is what he will do once he has you. He just protects those he loves, and this in some way protects you.

Is A Virgo Man Possessive In Love? 3 Surefire Signs A Virgo Man Is Overprotective Of You

When you’re not sure if your Virgo man is just being distant or if he’s upset about something, it might be good to know what the signs are of him being jealous, so you don’t mistake it for something else.

1. He Becomes Jealous If You Talk To Other Men

Jealousy is a complex emotion that leads to unhealthy behavior. If you are talking to other men, please note that your Virgo man may be observant and analytical and, as such, may demonstrate possessive behavior. You need to define whether his display of jealousy is something that turns you on or makes you look the other way.

If you cannot respect him enough to not flirt with other men, you may find that he will cut you off and likely break up with you. He just doesn’t play that game. If you don’t see him as jealous, it’s not a bad thing.

Some women find it desirable; others take a negative stand. Virgo protects his relationships; hence, such behavior is expected from him.

2. He Hides His Jealousy

As mentioned, Virgo man jealousy and possessiveness are things he would not want you to see. He will avoid conversation if you confront him. If you feel like you’re walking on eggshells around him constantly, then you need to get some outside help. He needs to understand that it’s not okay for him to act as if nothing is wrong when his behavior says otherwise.

It is unlikely that you will be able to get that information out of him about what he was upset about or why, but he may open up and tell you when the time comes. In true love, jealousy is alive and real. Don’t force him; let him come to you.

3. He Questions Everything

A typical Virgo man is moody and therefore nosy. As such, he can often ask uncomfortable questions which can lead him  to have doubts that seem rather unnecessary or uncalled for.

This leads to annoying and clingy behavior and it could be disturbing that in a way you may think he is literally breathing down your neck.  This kind of behavior may force you to put a veil of mystery and make him wonder about you. He can be secretive but doesn’t like it when his partner acts the same.

Virgo man can be suspicious which can be hard to deal with. He may question where you are going or who you are seeing and this can get on your nerves and force you to feel as if you are hiding something and even make you feel guilty.

What To Do When A Virgo Man Is Jealous

Answer His Questions Honestly

The Virgo man is always thinking. Being such a cerebral sign, he’s always pondering every possibility all the time. This is partially why he might get suspicious of you in the first place. If he thinks that something is not right, then no explanation is off the table. Even infidelity. 

Since Virgo comes up with a million questions all the time, it’s important to address any that he asks you with honesty. This is going to be the best way to settle his worried mind. 

Finding answers that make sense to him will be your best defense against a sulky Virgo guy. If you’ve got nothing to hide then this should be easy for you. 

Remember, any question you’re unwilling to answer or that doesn’t make sense to him will likely plague his mind until he’s satisfied. Ensure that you’re sparing no details. 

Being defensive when he asks questions is also likely to raise a few red flags for him. Ensure that you’re open and willing to find the middle ground between the two of you.

Here’s more on what a Virgo man wants to hear from a woman <<

Discover His Definition Of Infidelity

Something that I see in many couples is differing definitions within the relationships. For example, your version of a clean house may look different than your partner’s version. In this case, perhaps your Virgo has a different definition of what cheating is or what deserves his jealousy. 

Perhaps you have a male best friend that you talk to all day or all night. You share secrets, laugh, and express platonic love for each other. For you, this is just how your friendship operates. But perhaps for the Virgo this emotional intimacy with another is enough to trigger his jealousy response. 

This is why great communication in a relationship is so important. If the two of you aren’t on the same page about what it means to cheat, then you’ve got no hope of finding a happy medium. 

So don’t be afraid to ask your Virgo guy what his definition of infidelity is. Or maybe even ask him what sort of action deserves jealousy. I know you’ll be able to find some valuable input if he chooses to be forthright with what he thinks. 

Address The Elephant In The Room

Perhaps you’ve already determined the cause of his jealousy and you felt that it was sufficiently addressed. In this case, it should be water under the bridge, right? 

Sometimes we still have sore feelings that linger even after a conversation to resolve it has occurred. If you’re noticing he is still prickling under your touch, turning away from you, or just acting aloof towards you, then it’s time to uncover even more.

Virgos aren’t ones to make a big scene when they’re upset. They’ll likely hold their discomfort within their own mind and overthink about it. However, you’ll still feel his discomfort and it will likely make you feel pretty on edge yourself. 

When the Virgo is still acting off, never ignore it. This shows that there is still something to be resolved for the Virgo. You might have to take the initiative and call him out on his discomfort. Confrontation isn’t his favorite, but he sure is highly beneficial when attempting to clear the air. 

Reassure His Anxious Mind

The Virgo is likely going to hold a bit of anxiety even after you address his concerns. He is a high-strung man ruled by Mercury. His mind never shuts off. As a result, we can see him harboring some doubts even once you believe that the issue has been dealt with. 

If you’ve done nothing to deserve this insecurity then it can be very difficult to be patient when he still won’t stop being jealous. I encourage you to have as much patience as possible with how his mind works. 

If he ever brings up feelings of insecurity, then it’s your best bet to tell him that you’re not planning on going anywhere. Tell him he is the only one you love and that there isn’t a chance of you cheating on him – ever. 

It can become monotonous and make you feel targeted to have to reassure him constantly. And if these feelings arise in you then you should bring those up as well. Communication is key in any relationship and for both parties.

Never Accept Controlling Behavior

Virgos who are panicky try to micromanage the behavior of those around them. The Virgo can see every detail, all the time. In their mind, if they can control the action of all of the little cogs in the machine then maybe the machine will do what he wants, finally. 

This can manifest in him attempting to control your actions. I’ll reiterate here that this is never okay.

If this occurs and the Virgo alludes to the fact that he’s doing this because he believes you could cheat on him, then ask if you’ve performed all of the steps above. Ask the Virgo, are you sure there are no more questions I can answer for you? Do you need extra reassurance? What can I say to help you stay calm and to believe in me?

If Virgo does not have answers that satisfy you, then you need to draw clear boundaries around what you’ll allow and not allow. Sometimes, the fixation on your cheating has nothing to do with you. It could be something from his own past that he needs to work out.

Why Is My Virgo Man Trying To Make Me Jealous?

A Virgo man is trying to make you jealous if he feels insecure. Sometimes it takes a trigger to make him start to feel insecure. This trigger could be the fact that he feels you’re too good for him and doesn’t deserve you.

Surely, he will try to make you jealous if he has low self-worth; he’ll analyze the heck out of why you want to be with him. At the same time, he’ll begin to display some jealous tendencies. If you cheer on the superhero in the movie, he’ll swear that you want him.

Even when you say you don’t and you’re just enjoying the action, he’ll still believe you secretly have a crush on the main character. Yet he’ll turn the tables and expect you not to be jealous.

He’ll comment on some woman’s boobs on television, and then when you give him a nasty look, he’ll be like, “What? Why is that a big deal?” So there is definitely a double standard when it comes to Virgo men.

He wants to do what he wants to do, but if you do what you want to do (out of his “reason”), he doesn’t like it, and you’re in for an argument. He’s allowed to be insecure, but not you.

  1. I’m married to the Virgo man for 8 years I am a Taurus. I testify all is true about the Virgo.I have one question how can help my man to reduce to analyze everything,or have sometime a brake.I’m not very funny girl.

    1. Hi Fideline!

      There isn’t any way to get him to stop analyzing. It’s in his DNA and it won’t change. All you can do is be very blunt and honest with him so he doesn’t think you’re keeping any secrets. I know it’s frustrating to explain yourself in detail but with him, it’s necessary so he doesn’t keep mulling it over in his head. As far as a break, tell him you need some “me” time or time “with the girls”. It’s alright for you to do that.

  2. As a Virgo man myself, you can’t stop our natural over analytical nature. Unlike other signs that operate off the emotions and feelings and little to some brain which largely leads to irrationality, in the world of Virgos we are a least 89% mental and with the remaining 11% emotional. Myself, the stakes are higher than that: 98% mental and between the 2%-1% emotional and 1% feelings. In other words, I am like Spock from Star Trek. Therefore , with our being strongly mental by nature, if we wanted to shut off the analytical program by faking spontaneity, we simply cannot. Our “super analytical” nature can be weakened by …(?)…(I’m thinking about this one seriously). Whatever we do (sex, work, chores, hobbies, etc.), we overanalyze it which helps us to master said activity to genius level thus leading to self mastery. Sorry I couldn’t offer any solutions. I hope this posting have shed light to the inner workings of the Virgo male’s(females too!) mind. Until the next time, I’m out! Thanks for reading.

  3. My Virgo man tells me he likes me a lot but refuses to label us anything further. It confuses me because he is sweet and loving but thinks its not love because we are in a LDR.
