Libra Man Personality Traits & Characteristics

The Bright Side
You need someone to laugh with, he is there, you need a shoulder to cry on, just ring him up and he’ll come running to you, you are dead tired after the party and need someone to assist you cleaning the mess up, just let him know and he’ll do the honors. Need anything else? A Libran man is a perfect example of a Godsend friend. He is the kind of person whom you can blurt out your innermost secrets and worry not for he would not leak out to anyone. Libran men are good listeners. They would listen to all your hopes, desires, dreams and wishes but if you think that he would understand your innermost emotion, you are wrong. Another significant trait of men under this sun sign is that they aren’t the biased types. So, even if you are his best friend or someone close to him, don’t expect him to be by your side when you are wrong. In fact, don’t be surprised if he is the first to point out your mistake. This brings to light another important quality of Libran males – their honest nature. Libran men are true to heart and honest is every matter. For them, a lie is a lie, irrespective of whether it is white or black. One of the lesser known aspects of Libran males is their creativity and intelligence. Libran men are generally calm and composed. As such, it takes more than a brawl and fight to get a Libran male to spew and scrap. In fact, he has utmost capability to manage a conflicting situation and bring peace.

The Dark Side
If you have been thinking that all is good with a Libran man, know that behind all that charm and charisma are a few characteristic features of him that can leave you irritated and vexed. First and foremost, Libra men are indecisive in nature. They take a very long time to make up their mind for even the smallest bit of things. What’s worse, if even after much deliberation, Libran men take a decision, they may change their opinion in a split second if they think they have made a mistake. Expecting a Libran man to take a life-altering decision is way too much as his mind or the consequences around him would make it difficult for him to make a choice. With a Libran man around, instead of taking the decision himself, he would let the coin decide what is best. What causes such behaviour is the easily influenced and gullible trait of a Libran man. Since he listens to his heart more than his mind, it is very easy to mould the thinking of a Libran, the way you like. Since men under this zodiac sign are easily influenced and not active decision makers, they get easily discouraged and disappointed and need to be constantly pepped up. Libran men are self-indulgent and flirtatious. They often spend more than necessary amount on things they might not even look back again, forget using. This attitude though not harmful can be a matter of concern when the credit card bill appears!

Romance Quotient
Have you fallen for a charming and charismatic guy? Is it getting more and more impossible for you to keep him out of your mind? Does his smile get your heart pulsating? Well, by all means, the cupid has struck you and the guy in question is definitely a Libran. For, no other man in the zodiac has the charm and charisma that a Libran guy exudes. What is even more convincing is the fact that the smile of a Libran (and the Libran alone) is so captivating that not even his enemies can resist it. Once in love with a Libra guy, it is impossible to get over it as he would never let you do so. As such, even if you try to back off, he will convince you with such persuasive arguments that you would be left with no other option but to stay. When in love with a Libran, a woman forgets her own existence and immerses herself completely in him. As such, she dreams what he dreams, loves what he loves and finds her happiness in his. However, don’t think that a Libran guy looks for a robot or a partner who has no intellect of her own. In fact, a Libran guy looks for soul mate who is intelligent, smart, good looking and has a knack for effective decision making.

To impress a Libran man, use of flattery and admiration is the key to win his heart. Your sweet talk and molly-cuddling would melt him down and make you an irresistible treat for him. And if he too feels for you in the same way, he would be more than happy to return your affection. Libran men are flirtatious by nature. However, the same only continues until they meet their perfect soul mate or someone who is absolutely compatible. Once in a relationship, Libran men are loyal and trustworthy. However, men under this zodiac sign tend to confuse love with friendship and vice-versa. They keep searching for the perfect girl and if the relationship doesn't turns out to be as they expected it, they become a little heartbroken but move on with life. A lost love or an unpleasant end of a relationship does not affect a Libran too much. Since a Libran man is not much of a decision maker, he is more than glad when the woman in his life takes the initiative and controls the situations. An indecisive woman only adds to the insecurities of a Libran man. To be with a Libran man, just make sure that you fill up for his weakness and life would be as smooth as silk!
