Who are the virgins who love him?

Song of Solomon 1:3 (ESV)

3 your anointing oils are fragrant; your name is oil poured out; therefore virgins love you.

“Virgins,” at that time, referred to young women who have reached the age of sexual maturity and are ready for marriage. The young woman is singing the praises of her beloved. He is so desirable that all the young women are drawn to him. She is not threatened by this. She does not feel any jealousy, but rather rejoices in the fact that she is the fortunate one to have him as her beloved.1
