How to Love a Libra Man
Understand his need for peace
One of the most important things to know is that a Libra man cannot tolerate verbal violence or bickering in a relationship.
He’s ruled by Venus, the planet of grace and beauty.
So he needs plenty of that!
If you’re going to love a Libra man, you should identify with his need for tranquility and harmony.
Keep a calm approach and try to let things roll off your back rather than getting riled up.
Arguing is ugly to a Libra man and he doesn’t like the dark place it takes him to.
He is not the most assertive type, yet he rails against feeling walked on.
Ideally, you’ll talk about things rationally and empathetically instead of fighting.
Be aware, though, that in the moment, Libras can be defensive and passive aggressive!
Sometimes it’s best to save a conversation for later when they’re not feeling backed into a corner.

Everything is about balance
Libra is the sign of the scales of justice.
This is a fair-minded man who is very concerned with equality.
But Libra is also all about balance and harmony.
That means that in a relationship, he is going to expect that you work together to create a healthy, rather symbiotic relationship where you both pull your weight.
If one person is doing all the housework, that’s a problem (unless it was agreed to earlier as the other person picks up slack elsewhere).
Financially, he’d prefer it if you were both independent or, if you’re married, you’re both contributing to the household overall.
If your Libra starts to feel like you’re expecting more from him than you are willing to put in, he will take that as an affront.
In general, just think about how your actions will affect the balance of the relationship.
You should be equals in every sense of the word.
That is what a Libra man wants, and that is the type of woman he will want to commit to.
He needs plenty of affection
Libras live for love.
They live and breathe romance, cuddling and hand-holding.
After all, these are all expressions of the beauty of love (and remember, beauty is important to this Venus-ruled sign).
Libras want to feel loved.
They need to have physical contact with you, to hear you speak tenderly to them.
In return, your Libra man will shower you in affection and make you feel like the most important person in the world.
Image is important to him
For Libras, presentation is a reflection of what’s inside.
What you show to the world should be a mirror of your best self.
Following this line of logic, how others perceive your relationship should mirror the best of your relationship.
Libra men aren’t ones to air their dirty laundry.
Bearing this in mind, try to keep private matters private and let the world see only what he is (and you are) comfortable with.
That doesn’t mean you can’t talk to your close friends about serious stuff—
It just means that when you’re out, you should be careful about how you treat each other and what “face” you show to his friends.
He can easily become embarrassed by a too-personal joke, for instance.
Or an argument in the middle of the bar.
Strive to reflect the harmonious relationship you desire, which can in turn help you achieve it.
Don’t ask him to change
Many times, serious relationships change people.
They take on more responsibilities, especially as they get married and start families, and their perspectives change.
However, you really can’t expect your Libra man to change in the specific ways you want.
Placing a myriad of rules on him that dictate how he should behave now that he’s in a relationship, or even in a marriage, will make him feel like you don’t accept and love him for who he is.
And that you never really understood him.
Now, obviously your Libra man should meet your standards!
You don’t need any man in your life who isn’t faithful to you, dependable, etc.
And a Libra man can be these things for you. If he loves you, he wants to be—you don’t have to ask him.
It’s more that he resents being boxed into some cookie cutter role.
For example: Expecting that he will stop playing video games with his buddies on Wednesday nights once you move in together.
Or that he will switch careers to do something he enjoys less but that makes more money.
The best thing to do is talk about what you want and expect out loud if these things are deal-breakers for you.
Your Libra might be willing to compromise, but not by force.
If you want a full guide on navigating your relationship with your Libran, I can’t stress enough the importance of seeing through his eyes with a guide like Libra Man Secrets.
He needs time to make decisions
You’re never going to get a quick decision out of a Libra.
It’s not that Libras are incapable of knowing what they want.
Rather, Libras are quite concerned about the desires of others and what is most practical/reasonable/fair.
This can slow down any judgment call, even if it’s where to eat.
But you just can’t rush your Libra man.
Instead of trying to get him to hurry up, try one of two things.
Reason out the alternatives to help him make up his mind, as in, “If we get Thai food tonight, we can try the new Thai restaurant in town. Or if we get Mexican, it’s dollar taco night.”
Or, just tell him what you want, as in, “I really want Mexican tonight, is that OK?”
You just might save your Libra guy the agony of wondering if he made the right choice for your happiness.
Ultimatums aren’t productive
You may be tempted to give a Libra man an ultimatum if he’s dragging his feet.
For instance, if you asked him if he wants to move in together and he hasn’t responded yet.
But no matter how much you want a conclusion, you should stay away from the ultimatum.
Ultimatums only serve to make Libras more anxious.
You could stir up so much uncertainty in him that he gets frozen into place, neither moving forward nor backwards.
Loving your Libra man takes patience on your part.
But maybe you already knew that from experience.
If you’re willing to put in the time and patience, you will be rewarded with one of the most loving and doting partners you’ve ever had.
Encourage a Libra man by being your most charming, romantic, nonjudgmental and wonderful self you can be.
If there comes a time you need to put your foot down, do so with compassion.
Explain that this is what you need and that you love him even though you must do what’s right for you.
A mature Libra man will understand this and appreciate your honesty.

How to know if a Libra man is using you
A Libra man who is not serious about you and is, in fact, a player will give himself away by paying lip service to you with nothing to back it up.
He’ll promise you all sorts of stuff and never deliver.
He may even want to in the moment, but he’s fooling himself as much as he’s fooling you.
Whether it’s a dinner date or a time to meet his friends, it will never actually get solidly planned or confirmed.
How do you make a Libra man miss you?
Be OK with the space that he needs.
While you’re giving him space, live it up and show yourself a good time so the Libra man sees that you don’t need him to be fulfilled.
But don’t mistake this for game-playing—you can be up front with him and tell him how you feel.
