Virgos are bad news? I hear ya. [Oct. 27th, 2007|10:01 pm]

So I accidentally found this community through Google whilst searching for the line "always thinks he's right" (don't ask me why). I'm surprised I'm not the only one with a beef against people born under an astrological sign - it seems weird and irrational. But I've had too many negative experiences with Virgos in my life to not feel that way.

The first one was a girl in highschool. She was what you'd consider a 'best friend' in highschool but at the same time, the friendship was completely dysfunctional. She criticized everything about me to make herself feel better, and nothing I did was good enough. Get this: I didn't walk right, talk right, looked funny, acted weird. She criticized everything from my clothes to the way I laughed. She was smart and a total perfectionist, very good at studying and making reports, always getting high grades and always knowing what to do. Me, I am pretty smart too. But I'm chaotic, emotional and disorganized (might be a Scorpio thing.) And no matter what I did, I was never good enough. I clung to her because I had nobody else in highschool, but eventually she ditched me at the worst possible time and I completely broke down.

I actually have three friends who are Virgos. At some point they were all good friends - but they all share something in common. I am never able to convince them that their point of view may not be the One And Only Right One In The Entire Universe. Trying to have a discussion with them is impossible, they don't listen, all they try to do is convince me that I'm wrong and that they are right. Pointing out that they could improve in something is useless, they feel that they're doing things the one and only perfect way. And last but not least, my ex-bf was a Virgo, and there were enough Virgo-typical personality qualities that made him an ex. Most importantly, the complete stubbornness in his own ways and inability or lack of interest to see things in another way.

I think what I completely dislike about almost every Virgo I have known is not so much their relentless perfectionism: but their inability to empathise and truly understand another person's point of view, not being able to see beyond their own view of the world, not considering that things are different for different people, and expecting everyone to adapt to their rules and values.

Of course there are exceptions, and I wouldn't go as far as hating someone based merely on their astrological sign. Still, as an overly emotional, passionate, complex, chaotic, disorganized and sensitive Scorpio, I find myself at odds with Virgos way too often to not pay attention to the zodiac...

poor virgos

Yes they suck... i agree... though you must understand that however much they criticize and nit pick others, they're ten times worse on themselves. THey are almost obsessive compulsive. It sucks more to be them, than to be their friend. The best thing oyu can do to a virgo is state your mind, put them in their place when neccesary, don't be a pushover, and bring to their attention in a non-defensive way how they're behavior effects you... often they are crushed when they realize what an asshole their being, how "imperfect a friend they are behaving like. Tell them what you need... don't let it become a battle of minds or will. simply state your piont and move on. THat is the best way to deal with a virgo... i know cause i've lived with myself for 30 years.. oh what a pain.... the self loathing in virgo's is often high... teach em to have fun, loosen up and not take life so seriously. THey need help seeing the big picture.
