They're Loyal: 8 Reasons Why Virgo Men And Women Make The Best Friends

by Miranda Cipolla

If you're reading this, it's probably because you, like Beyoncé, are a Virgo. Or, maybe it means you, much like Jay Z, are lucky enough to have a Virgo in your life. Either way, congratulations!

The Virgo is the best sign in the zodiac. (Okay, that's a highly biased opinion, but it doesn't make it any less true.)

One really awesome truth about Virgos, though, is they make great friends, and even better BFFs.

If you know a Virgo, I'm sure you're familiar with the reasons to befriend a Virgo, but here are a few of the best, in case you needed reminding:

1. Virgos are loyal AF.

They've somehow managed to strike the perfect balance between being loyal and not being super clingy.

So, if you need some time to yourself, it's all good; your Virgo friend understands. But, just remember, if you're squad now, you're squad for life.

2. They'll tell you like it is, straight up.

Generally, Virgos are known for being a little harsh. But, hey, it's all a product of their practical mindsets. If you ask them a question, you'll get a straight answer.

There will be no fluff or beating around the bush. Which sounds a little sh*tty, but your Virgo friend just doesn't want you to walk around living a lie. Plus, think of it this way: Every good thing they say about you is completely truthful and genuine.

3. A Virgo will plan your birthday party, and it'll always be the best.

As known perfectionists, Virgos often strive to make sure everything is on point. Plus, one of their main goals in life is helping out the people they love. Translation? They make ace party planners.

Will they go down the diva path a little bit if everything's not coming together? Well, maybe. But it's out of love.

At the end of the day, you'll get an awesome shindig. Win-win!

4. If you have a problem, your Virgo friends will solve it for you.

They love helping out their friends, but they might love analyzing things just a touch more. Seriously, if you're in a pickle, leave it to a Virgo to look over the finer points until he or she can find you an answer.

Even if you don't find a solution, at least you'll feel better knowing your Virgo friend is completely in your corner (refer to point one).

5. Need some boyfriend/girlfriend advice? Look no further.

Virgos are super analytical and observant, which is great. But they're also naturally judgmental, which, you know, doesn't seem all that great.

But hear me out: Usually, Virgos only use their powers for good, and often, these traits combine to make them pretty awesome at knowing people's characters. They're careful with the people they let into their lives, and guess what? They can sniff out a bad egg from 50 miles away.

Meaning, if you're iffy about that new guy/gal you're dating, and you want your Virgo friends to lay it all out for you, they'll probably tell you what's up with a frightening degree of accuracy.

6. Your Virgo friend will remember the little things.

Okay, so Virgos aren't the most emotional people on the outside.

On the inside, however, a Virgo is often full of billions of thoughts and emotions, but his or her exterior remains cool and collected. Which means a Virgo doesn't always express love in the most obvious of ways. Instead, your Virgo BFFs will show it more subtly.

They'll remember your favorite color, clothing brand and time of day, and somehow make it all come together for a fun birthday surprise. They'll remember your favorite ice cream flavor and treat you to it when you're sad.

They'll remember exactly how you like your coffee and bring it to you if you have a hard day ahead.

Heck, they'll even remember you got sick on tequila that one time three years ago, so the next time you're going through a rough patch, they'll get you vodka shots instead.

You know what? That's true love.

7. Virgos get sh*t done.

As they are one of the most determined zodiac signs, you can pretty much count on your Virgo friends to get everything done.

You guys have a project you need to work on? Your Virgo friend is making sure everything goes smoothly. You have a goal you need to reach? Your Virgo BFF is coaching you from the other side, making sure you remain productive and goal-oriented. You need a favor, and you need it done right? Look no further.

A Virgo is in your corner, getting stuff done.

8. Your Virgo won't ever brag about how great he or she is... probably.

Virgos are super modest (most of the time). Meaning, they'll go above and beyond what it means to be an awesome BFF, and they won't even remind you of the added effort they put in.

You're welcome.
