Zodiac

Those born between September 23 to October 22 belong to the Libra Sun sign, the seventh sign in the Zodiac. Libra follows Earth sign Virgo and precedes Water sign Scorpio.

Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and expression, Libra values both of these concepts, along with fairness, romance, and companionship. Libra is an Air sign, meaning they are known for their communication and thinking. As a Cardinal sign and initiator of change, they have a strong desire to experience new things and set events in motion.

Libra Man: Overview

Just like their symbol of the Scales, the Libra man is a zodiac sign all about fairness. Libra males strive to achieve this balance in all areas of life, and push to bring about justice and equality, with harmony and stability.

The Libra guy is known for his outgoing personality and hectic social life, appreciation for the finer things in life, his romantic thoughts, and open-minded disposition. But he’s an incredibly sensitive soul who aims to please, and would rather take the high road than involve himself in any type of confrontation.

However, being around Libra males can be a bit challenging due to their indecisiveness. Any decision he makes, he must think it through thoroughly, and even then, he won’t be sure it was the right one; above all, he wants to make sure he’s making a fair and just choice.

But despite this, the Libra man is an intellectual being devoted to his relationships.

Libra Man In Love and Relationships

Dating a Libra man means being wined and dined, and dressing the nines. Because this guy has great taste, he wants his date to look and feel their best in his presence. Libra men will give their date the best treatment, but it’s not just to show himself in a certain light; it’s also a way to gauge if a potential partner is capable of understanding him and keeping his ego from bruising.

But because he wants to spread the love, he’s known to date multiple people at once, often causing hurt feelings by leading them on.

A Libra in love is affectionate, hopelessly romantic, and tends to wear rose-colored glasses in his romantic relationships. While he’s gentle and caring, he has trouble recognizing red flags in a partner, and will throw caution to the wind in favor of his idealism.

That said, he also idealizes his partner, fantasizing about spending eternity together, even if there’s trouble brewing. Still, despite moving things along too quickly, he’s devoted and dotes on his partner’s every need.

And being in a long-term relationship with Libra is nothing short of heaven. He showers his partner with gifts and compliments, spending time with them, and proving how deep his respect and love go.

His partners need to realize, however, that Libra does have a tendency to waver between wanting a relationship and wanting to be “free” (he’s hesitant about making concrete decisions, after all). Libra’s partner may also struggle with this sign’s fear of being alone as this means he will have to face his inner emotions that he doesn’t want to deal with.

In terms of compatibility, Libra is a good match for Fire sign Leo, as well as fellow Air signs Gemini and Aquarius. Leos are optimistic, loyal and supportive; Gemini loves adventure, socializing and are great at communicating; Aquarius is intellectual, focused on justice, and really likes other people.

Libra Man Sexuality

Because Libra is ruled by Venus, it’s no wonder that he makes a terrific lover. He’s gentle, affectionate, and is focused primarily on pleasing his partner. There’s no shortage of trying new things and experimenting, making his sexual partner comfortable the entire time.

But while he’s caring and tender, he can also be selfish with his needs, especially if he doesn’t have an emotional connection with his partner; he may also have trouble expressing himself in bed. Still, sex to him is an entirely romantic event in itself, and his partner will no doubt leave pleased.

Libra Man Personality Traits

While the Libra man’s personality traits include being fair, sociable, diplomatic, and great at communication, he’s also unreliable, vain, self-pitying, indecisive, and non-confrontational.

This zodiac sign’s symbol of the Scales truly describes him wholeheartedly; he’s always wanting balance in his life, which is why he tends to steer clear of conflict. To him, the perfect world is one where there’s no fighting, only respect and justice for all. His need for balance also plays into his emotions, where he remains calm and collected in situations; he moves on quickly from things that make him upset.

Libra is highly sociable and makes new friends everywhere he goes. After all, he’s sympathetic and caring, so who wouldn’t want to be in his inner circle? Along with this, Libras are intelligent and are able to hold their own in any conversation; they are great at solving problems by offering a creative solution.

But despite being so charming and friendly, Libras struggle to confront people head-on. Having difficult conversations makes it hard to maintain balance, so it’s not in their nature to actively bring up issues in any area of life.

This sign also doesn’t quite understand how to make decisions in a quick and effective manner, preferring instead to consider the weight of his choices.

Libra Man: Career

Libras make wonderful employees, using their intellect and problem-solving skills to their benefit. Despite not doing well at a 9-to-5 desk job, he makes a great team player and inspires his coworkers and teammates to reach their full potential.

His indecisive nature means he may juggle a few different jobs or careers at once. And, what’s more, he may struggle to hold onto managerial positions as he lacks initiative.

Great careers for Libras include a variety of things: lawyers, photographers, filmmakers, and actors. But they also do well in fields like advertising, design, art, music, counseling, television, motivational speaking, social work, or cooking.

Libra Man: Family Life

Libra men aren’t just caring and tender with their romantic partners, but with their family as well. He’s a family man, through and through, and he’s at his best when surrounded by his loved ones. He’s also selfless in making sure his family is happy.

As a father, the Libra guy is a great parent and strives to make sure their kids arm themselves with knowledge, develop their own self-worth, and also value fairness. However, because he avoids conflict, he will sweep the issue under the rug rather than handling it, so his kids will always get the better of him.

Still, he’s a nurturing force in the lives of his children.

Libra Man: Friendships

Libras easily make new friends but have a strong network of friends close to him. They are invested in their friendships and are great at solving problems, whether it’s between friends or an issue one of their buddies has.

They don’t fight with their friends, and if something is wrong, won’t bring it up; instead, they will pretend there was no friction to begin with. Libras also tend to hold their friends to high standards and expect too much of them, which can cause disappointment.

10 Truth About Libra Men

1. Libras don’t like being on their own.

Whether it's friends, family, or relationships, Libras hate being alone. They would much rather spend all of their time with their favorite people. These guys do appreciate alone time, but why be alone when you can surround yourself with the people you love hanging out with?

2. Libras are very social creatures.

Libras are known for being very social; it’s no wonder they don’t want to be by themselves! They will always jump at the chance to hit up a party, go on a date, or just chill with their best friends at home. Libra men are charismatic and know how to use that to their advantage.

3. He can hold a grudge forever.

Libra doesn't have to throw a fit for you to know they are angry. If you hurt a Libra, they will hold a grudge against you until they let it go, which could mean a very long time. You can try to apologize, but if they aren't in the mood to hear it, it won't even matter what you say.

4. Libra will go out of his way to avoid confrontation.

Libras hate confrontation so much that they will go out of their way to make sure they don't have to deal with it. Confrontation means exposing their tough outer shell and talking about what's making them angry. It's so much simpler to just leave things the way they are.

5. Libra men rarely lose their temper.

You won't find a Libra that's quick to anger. They can be moody and unresponsive sometimes, but they will never take it out on you. Maybe it's the fear that they will lose a friend if they do, or maybe it's just not their thing. Either way, prepare to deal with a cold shoulder during an argument.

6. He's always up for a challenge in bed.

Libras constantly look for new ways to spice up their sex life, which means taking on a new challenge. That can mean trying a new position, introducing toys in the bedroom, and everything in between. They also love women who enjoy the submissive role.

7. Libra looks at every side before making a decision.

Libra men can be very analytical when it comes to making a decision. He likes to look at the situation from all angles before figuring out the best course of action, so (understandably) this can be incredibly annoying to an outsider. Libras are already known as one of the most indecisive signs — they can overdo it sometimes.

8. He values good communication.

Being one of the more social signs, Libra men value communication over everything else. They would rather talk things through, whether in a relationship or a disagreement with a friend, instead of pretending that nothing is wrong. Sure, they can hold a grudge, but only after they've tried to make up with you.

9. Male Libras enjoy a good adventure.

Libras and adventure go together like peanut butter and jelly. They are always looking for something new to try, so if you are dating a Libra man, be prepared to get out of your comfort zone. They'll find it extremely sexy if you plan an adventurous day trip for the two of you.

10. He's a total people-pleaser.

Libras want everyone to be happy and get along, and will do everything in their power to make that happen. Sounds great, right? Sometimes it can be, but, for the most part, this just turns a Libra into a people-pleaser who can't say no to others.

They don't mean to put everyone's needs before theirs, but it happens and it really never turns out the way they want it to.
