The good, bad, and ugly on the Libra man
Are you hunting for information on the Libra man? Hoping to understand how they vibe in love and relationships? Do you want to know what Libra guys are like in bed?
If the answer is yes, you have landed on the right page. That’s because this page is all about the Libra man.
As an air sign, the Libra guys usually come off as breezy and easy-going. But I’m here to tell you there’s much more to us than meets the eye.
Yep, that’s right. I’m a Libra man.
If you find yourself attracted to a stylish Libra, you’re not alone – many people are charmed by our highly social nature and impeccable taste.
I’ve found that a lot of the information out there on our sign can be confusing. That’s why I’m putting this guide together, so you can better understand the Libra man in your life.
Whether you’re exploring a burgeoning crush or want to dive deep into your long-term partner’s personality traits, I hope this article will give you a better understanding of what makes our sign tick.
I should be clear that I’m not an astrologer or a psychic – but I am someone who’s highly fascinated by astrology. With a little help from our resident shaman, I put together this piece as an ultimate guide.
So, if you want to know how Libra men are in love and relationships – plus their personality traits, here’s everything you need to know.
1. Style matters
There are plenty of guys who only care about what’s on the inside, but unfortunately, your Libra guy isn’t going to be one of them.
Libra is ruled by Venus, which is the planet of money and beauty. This means we love finding a date that looks just as good as we do – or better!
However, it’s about more than just looks. We love finding someone with impeccable taste in art, decor, fashion, and the finer things in life.
2. We have trouble putting ourselves first
Libras are naturally people pleasers – we love seeing the people we care about happy. Because of this, we often find it difficult to attend to our personal needs and can end up feeling drained.
Dating a Libra can be amazing, because they’ll be naturally inclined to cater to your every whim. But if you really want to make them happy, ask them how they’re doing for a change.
3. We take commitment seriously
Nowadays, there are so many guys out there who only want casual hookups, but this really isn’t true for us Libra men.
I know personally that when I meet a girl that really catches my attention, I’m not thinking about friends with benefits, I’m thinking about a long-term partner that I could potentially marry.
It takes a really special person to get to this point, but when it happens, I know right away.
This can be scary but know that he doesn’t take this lightly. The Saturn influence in our chart means that we have the capacity to slow down and take a breather when we want to.
However, I’ve found that in most cases, it works out better to know where I stand right away, instead of dancing around the ‘what are we’ question for months on end.
Let us know if we need to take our foot off the breaks – but know if there’s no potential for a future, I might move on so I can find a relationship that will last.
4. Get ready to be swept off your feet
If you like to be wined and dined, dating a Libra guy is certainly going to make you happy. We have great taste, and we love sharing it with you.
Not only will we take you to the best restaurants and bars, but we’re constantly on the hunt for impressive new events and locations to take you to.
We also love to keep things classy, with sophisticated conversation and good manners. Get ready to put on your favorite dress and heels!
5. We sometimes struggle with confidence
Although Libra men have impeccable taste, we don’t always have the most confidence in ourselves or our abilities.
We get caught up in moments of self-doubt a little more often than we’d like to admit, and sometimes we need verification from the outside world that we’re worth it.
We appreciate kind words, but PDA can be just as effective – it shows others how much you value us, which satisfies our need to appear desirable.
6. We don’t cheat or give up on relationships
Libra men are incredibly loyal, and most of us can’t even fathom cheating on our partners. When we say we’re committed, we’re committed, and we mean it.
However, sometimes we stay in relationships that aren’t working for too long, just because we don’t want to give up on something we care about.
If things aren’t working out, you may have to be the one to do the breaking up – just be sure to let us down gently!
7. Keeping things positive is important
If you need a little sunshine in your life, look no further than the Libra guy. Although we have moods just like everyone else, we really try to keep things positive most of the time.
We take a glass half full approach and are always looking for the next exciting challenge. In this way, we are similar to Aquarius (see this post on the Aquarius man personality).
We’re not difficult to please, and we love to see and appreciate the positive qualities that our partner offers.
If you’re on the pessimistic side, a Libra man can balance you out perfectly – you provide a dose of realism to our upbeat energy.
8. Indecisiveness can get tricky
As the sign of the scales, we’re always looking to find balance in our life, and there’s nothing more satisfying to us than making a list of pros and cons.
However, we often find ourselves feeling indecisive, and this has frustrated many a partner in my experience. We like to keep all our options open when making any kind of decision, because we’re prone to changing our mind later on.
Whether it’s something big like a career move or something smaller, like where to go on vacation, just give us a little breathing room to think it through, because once we commit, we take it seriously.
9. Gifts and surprises always make us happy
Since we love the finer things in life, gifts are definitely one of the ways to our heart.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money, but we always appreciate when you have good taste and pay attention to the things we want and need.
Even just leaving a sweet little note or cooking a nice dinner will make a big impression.
10. We care about fairness
It’s hard for us to let it go when we see something as unfair. When we notice something unjust in the world, our natural instinct as a Libra is to want to correct it, to create balance and harmony.
If we get into an argument with our partner, we’ll subconsciously want to find a fair outcome. Understanding this can go a long way towards peace and harmony in our relationship.
11. We love partners who balance out our weaknesses
The saying that opposites attract is really true for a Libra man. Just because I’m social doesn’t mean I want a social partner – I really value the benefit that spending time with an introvert can bring me.
If you’re dating a Libra guy, don’t feel like you have to conform to his tastes. He’ll actually appreciate it more if you embrace your strong, beautiful self.
While dating can be a wildcard, I have found we are most compatible with Gemini and Sagittarius.
12. We can get a little entitled
It’s not easy to admit, but as a Libra, I often myself refusing to settle for anything less than the best. It’s hard for us to accept a slice of humble pie when we need it.
If you need to serve your guy a dose of reality in your relationship, be prepared for some tension, but don’t be afraid to stand your ground.
We hate conflict and we love to please people, so if you make a good case, we’ll soon understand and work through it.
13. Routine helps balance our energetic side
Although we like to get out and enjoy the finer things in life, us Libra guys rely on a regular schedule to keep our emotions in check.
Things like going for a run every morning or playing a video game every night before bed help us process and de-stress, so we can be more personally content and be a better partner too.
Just don’t get in the way of our routines, because we might get a little grouchy.
14. Some people like to call us justice warriors
Because fairness is so important to us, we often find ourselves taking on causes we find important to us.
We love to volunteer and frequently get drawn into protests and community events. As our partner, we really love it when you support the causes that we care about. It shows us that you care about who we are below the surface.
If this energy gets a little overwhelming at times, know that it’s very genuine.
15. We’re social butterflies
Libras are naturally charming, and we love to be around other people. I know I’m a classic extrovert – I start to feel drained if I spend too much time alone.
Those early dates with a Libra guy won’t feel awkward the way they might with some other signs, because we’re excellent conversationalists. You also might find that being in a long-term relationship with a Libra leads to some new friendships for you as well.
We’ll introduce you to our entire circles, and we love helping others connect. The downside to this? I’m not proud of it, but we’re master social manipulators, which means your Libra guy is capable of manipulating you to get what he wants.
Stand your ground and let him know you see through it, and we’ll respect that strength.
16. We love appreciating your good qualities
Many men only focus on the big picture, but not Libra – we’re always looking at the details. We’re naturally observant and always in tune with our environment.
This point is particularly true once we’ve established an emotional bond.
The trait of appreciation really shines through in our relationships, because we love noticing and learning new things about you.
And here is the thing – when you open up to us, you’ll be able to intuitively know that are care is genuine.
17. We’re constantly pushing forward
Libras are not content just staying stagnant in any aspect of life.
As an air sign and a cardinal sign, the wind is always blowing us forward, and looking for new opportunities is natural for us.
We’re always looking for that next promotion at work and keeping an eye out for a nicer apartment – but that also means we’re looking to move our relationship to the next stage.
If you’re not ready to keep things progressing, we might eventually move on to someone else.
18. We’re great in bed (just saying)
Don’t get us wrong – we really enjoy sexy time, and we’re great at it too. Your Libra man is going to be a very attentive lover and is always going to be looking for new ways to please you and have fun.
However, stimulating you isn’t everything for us. We’d much rather focus on finding a complete connection with someone else than just having fun in bed.
In this way, we are like Scorpio but there are some differences. Read this post to learn more about the Scorpio man personality.
19. Gossip turns us off
Although we’re very social, we do like to keep it classy, and we expect the same attitude from our partners.
You might be tempted to gossip about a coworker or acquaintance to us, but you’d be better off saving it for one of your girlfriends.
We tend to look at gossiping as a sign of poor taste.
20. We struggle with confrontation
Because of our indecisive, people pleasing nature, confrontation is one of the hardest things in the world for us Libra guys. I’d rather do almost anything else than confront someone about a problem, even if I know I’m in the right.
If you have to have a difficult conversation with your Libra guy, approach it gently. If he feels attacked, he’ll retreat, and it will be difficult for the two of you to be productive.
You should also know he’ll be very unlikely to bring up a problem if he has one, so you might have to be the one to initiate that tough conversation.
21. Sometimes our expectations get out of hand
Libra males have a very natural tendency to be hopeless romantics, and this can sometimes make it hard for us to see the world realistically.
We love appreciating your good qualities, but we can sometimes set very high expectations for our partner without even realizing it.
When we’re charmed by someone, we start thinking of all the incredible possibilities of a relationship with them, and we might need you to bring us back down to earth.
But if you are the type who likes getting love letters and thought of in special ways, we’ll probably be a good match.
22. Clean and comfy spaces are important to us
When you make your way back to a Libra guy’s home, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that our spaces are clean, organized, and stylish.
We like order and beauty in our space, because it makes us feel more at home.
If you’re preparing to move in together, you can expect your guy to be a little OCD about keeping it clean and looking nice – but he’ll also use his great taste to put together a stunning space for you both.
23. We struggle to work on ourselves
Since we’re so externally motivated, it gets difficult for us Libra guys to make personal improvements. We don’t like diving deep into our psyches, because we’d rather focus on yours.
If you want your Libra to take steps towards personal growth, be gently encouraging, but above all, be patient.
24. We like to spend money
With such an appreciation for aesthetic beauty, sometimes we make purchases that might not seem the smartest to the outside observer, like sleek new car or designer clothes.
However, the true pleasure we derive from these objects makes it feel worth it to us.
Although we make the odd frivolous purchase, we still know how to manage money, and make smart career choices so we can afford these material things.
The trait I’m describing here can be a good or bad thing. If you are looking for a saver, the Capricorn man might be a better match.
25. You can let your guard down with us
I’ve noticed that many women like to go into a new relationship with their guard up – and for good reason. Many guys have the potential to really hurt you without even realizing it.
However, as a people-oriented Libra, I would never do anything to intentionally hurt you, and being open with me is only going to make the relationship better.
Problems in a relationship with a Libra guy tend to stem from misunderstanding or his personal indecisiveness, not malicious or insensitive actions.
The Libra Man Summed Up
Just like every sign in the zodiac, Libras are complex, and although loving us comes with its challenges, there’s lots to enjoy as well. Dating a Libra male requires some patience, but you’ll enjoy his attentiveness and good taste.
Although he can be indecisive at first, once he decides you’re the one, you’ll never have to doubt his commitment.
