It’s Libra season and so of course, we’re here to give you the tea on dating a Libra man. This is pretty much all you need to know about these social butterflies. Why do I refer to them as such? Well, if you haven’t noticed already these men are great at making new friends, talking to people, and just being open-minded. I have two male Libras in my life who I’ve known for over 20 years now. They are loyal—despite being a bit inconsistent.

Libra men are great as friends in my opinion because trying to pin them down for a relationship can be somewhat challenging. These men generally never stay put for long and tend to float between careers and relationships. If you have a Libra man in your life, surely he’s told you about the countless career paths he wishes to embark on.

As his potential bae or current bae maybe you want to just be supportive. It can seem scary when this happens because then you may wonder, “How is he going to support me or support himself?” Well, remember, Libras represent the balance scale of the zodiac. So, while he is maybe hard to pin down or indecisive about his love or career goals, one thing is for sure, he is going to find a way to keep himself balanced. In other words, he is not likely to quit his job and rely solely on his partner to take care of him while he chases his dreams.

Most Libra men have a traditional mindset and are hell-bent on being the provider, but with this comes some difficulties. It can take them forever to make a decision and most of them do not put true effort into their relationships. They rarely follow through on promises and are notorious for changing or canceling plans at the last minute.

According to Astrologer Maisy Bristol, “…with duality comes indecision—a downside to any Libra man. While they may seem charming, fun, and attentive up front, his mind will start to spin when the conversation and connection get too deep. Most Libra men send mixed signals—he loves to be romantic and mushy -gushy, but then keep you at arm’s length. This sign loves to be wanted but does not want to be held responsible for anything. The good news? Once he commits, he will commit for good.”

I can say with confidence there is never a dull moment with the Libra man—he is romantic and creative which is the most obvious sign that he is serious about you or at least interested. He will be the guy that wants to properly take you out on dates and court you overtime, which yes, I know can be confusing.

This man will take you on the [best] dates and still take a long time to commit to you. But don’t get distraught and more importantly, don’t become confrontational. Go with his flow in a sense. Once you’ve established that you’re looking for a long-term commitment and you are not having sex with your Libra man he will make his mind up. Libra men love sex. So, if there’s no sex on the menu and he’s courting you properly and you let him know that there is a chance for sex after commitment he will no doubt come around.

Little things matter with the Libra man, so while he is courting you be sure to reciprocate this energy. If you want him to fall in love with you and take you seriously understand that he is a sentimental guy. He will go out of his way to put meaning into little things that most men would not think of or take for granted. A Libra man is a great man to have and to hold until death do you part. But you need to be returning the favors with some consideration. Take him out to dinner, get him a card for his birthday, and make a scrapbook of all of your memories together… he loves those sorts of things.

When a Libra man is serious about you he will keep in touch. As Bristol mentioned earlier, the Libra man can throw out some mixed signals. He’s hot and heavy one day and then putting an ocean between the two of you, the next. But if he’s truly into you and sees a future he will make you a part of his daily routine—communicating either through text or a phone call. He wants to stay in touch no matter what is going on.

Lastly, you know your Libra man is serious about you when he’s vulnerable. When this man lets you into his private world just know it was not easy for him to do. By no means does he ever want to feel like a burden or as though he’s looking to gain sympathy from anyone. Libra men want to appear solid, independent, and someone that can handle their own. But when he’s interested he’ll show a softer side to himself. Dating and falling in love with a Libra man is a wonderful experience.
