Fiery Leo is a great match for Libra! Leos are artistic and fascinating to Libras, and both love to be gushy when it comes to romance. For similar reasons, Aries is a great match for Libra, too. Sure, they’re technically opposite signs, but Aries is unique, upbeat, and a cardinal sign just like Libra, so the two of them are never bored with each other!
Libra is the seventh sign of the Zodiac, and like the set of scales they're represented by, Libras have an innate sense of balance and strive for harmony. They're also motivated to start conversations and instigate action in social settings, thanks to being a cardinal sign. Your Libra man is an expert communicator, always knowing the perfect thing to say in any situation to come off as diplomatic, tactful, and charismatic. He’ll make you laugh and become besties with your besties. He’s definitely the guy you want to take home to meet the 'rents, and you’ll be confident they’ll love him.
Libra is one of two signs ruled by Venus, planet of love, pleasure, and relationships. Libra, being an air sign, is filled to the brim with romantic thoughts, and loves to share them. He has a soft, gentle, and non-threatening Venusian vibe, with great taste in fashion and art, to boot. He usually moves in a graceful way, but when the balance is off, it is off! if he’s caught off-guard or surprised, his demeanor immediately becomes clumsy and nervous! Honestly, though, it’s kind of cute.
He's the best guy for finding a silver lining to any cloud, no matter how dark or stormy it appears to be.
Libras are known to be indecisive, weighing every option very carefully to find the best one before making a commitment. This can be a hassle sometimes, but it stems from his open-mindedness and willingness to find a solution. He’s the best guy for finding a silver lining to every cloud, no matter how dark or stormy it appears to be. His natural optimism is one of the main reasons why he’s such a great partner to have–he always has the perfect advice to give, ice breaker to strike up a conversation, or witty one-liner to make the whole room laugh.
Being the sign of relationships, your Libra guy is hella social and has a ton of friends, but everything you do is as a partnership. He’s so relationship-focused that it could feel as if you’re joined at the hip sometimes, but he also turns every outing into an exciting and romantic experience with his charm and silliness. He truly treats you as an equal (if not someone better than him) and is super accommodating, especially when it comes to the bedroom. Not only is he putting your needs before his, but he’s open to kinks and new positions. Variety is the spice of life for him, and he’ll try anything once.
His fun-loving, flexible nature can get annoying, however, when you feel like he's actually inconsistent. Libras can come off as shallow and uncommitted in the early stages of dating–he can be your Romeo at first, but then ghost you in the blink of an eye. And then right when you think he’s over you, he’s back, charming as ever and acting as if he never went anywhere. He’s got an open mind and an open heart, which can be a good thing if you’re actually dating him, but when he’s too busy debating if he actually likes you or not to commit, he can put you through a lot, emotionally.
His ability as a master wordsmith is a huge asset, but also potentially his worst trait.
Geminis have the reputation as the Zodiac’s most two-faced sign, but Libra is more than capable of stealing that title! He changes his tone and mannerisms in order to be well-liked by everyone around him. His ability as a master wordsmith is a huge asset, but also potentially his worst trait, as his words drip with honey when he's with a crowd, but his silver tongue can turn sharp if the two of you get into an argument. He'll rebalance eventually and go back to being sweet, but you might not move on as easily.
Once you lock down a committed relationship with a Libra (which is half the work, honestly), the real challenge is handling his need to please and tendency to talk for hours. He's a chatterbox who can exhaust someone who thrives in silence, especially when he presents a dilemma, asks your opinion, challenges it until you agree with him, and expects you to defend his original opinion! It’s a crazy dance you have to keep up with, but it’s all lighthearted banter to him. Entertain his love for conversation, indulge him in his need for romance, and be patient with his indecisiveness if you want to enjoy the pluses of dating a Libra!
