Reason #10. Virgo can sometimes come across as cold but the truth is they are just cautious about opening up.
Virgo can sometimes come across as cold and distant to those that they don’t know well but the truth is they are just cautious about opening up to people preferring to take their time to get to know a person first.

If they suspect they are in a one-sided relationship or friendship, you will get a one-way ticket out of their lives. They just don’t believe in investing in someone who isn’t investing in them.
Reason #12. Virgo has a hidden wild side that only a lucky few see.
For the most part the Virgo tends to be one of the more reserved signs of the zodiac but every now and then when the mood strikes them they have a tendency to let their hair down and go a bit wild. Being around good friends that they feel at ease around often tends to bring out this side of them.
