Everything You Need to Know About Dating a Libra Man
He might come off wishy-washy, but he’s really just a dreamer.

There are just a few basics that need to be explored when you first start dating someone. Where is he from? What does he do for a living? Oh, and most definitely, when’s his birthday? This isn’t just for remembering when to send that “happy b-day :)” text! Knowing a potential boo’s zodiac sign can really help in understanding his behavior. Astrology helps us break down personality traits, pet peeves, and, yes, even dating patterns. It can be fun and informative to look up his sign and see how yours works with his.
If you’re dating, Insta sleuthing (hi, guilty), or just fantasizing over a Libra man, we’re here to help you navigate one of the most alluring signs. These complex beings are stylish, flirtatious, and charming AF—in fact, they’re so charming it’s sometimes hard to tell what they’re really thinking. And TBH, they might not even know! Libras are notoriously indecisive, after all.
Luckily, astrology allows us to decipher personality traits, pet peeves, and so much more. And trust me when I say, there is sooo much more to a Libra man than you initially realized.
So if your guy was born between September 23 and October 22, you’re in for a treat. Libras make life feel special, but as it goes with any sign, there are some things you may want to keep an eye out for. Read on because we’ve got the tea on all things Libra!

THE BEST MATCHES FOR A LIBRA MAN
Fiery Leo is a great match for Libra! Leos’ artistic nature is 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 also vibes well with fellow air signs Gemini and Aquarius. They are all quick-witted, playful, curious, and just get each other. And like Libra, Taurus is ruled by Venus, so these signs share a love of pleasure and beauty—they’re probably the most stylish couple around (and have an incredible sex life too).
THE WORST MATCHES FOR A LIBRA MAN
A Libra might find it a bit harder to get along with a Capricorn—Caps are just so serious, while Libras want to have fun! Caps also love to plan ahead—like, creating a v. detailed 15-year-plan—while Libras tend to be a bit more spontaneous, so you’ll have to find a balance (which is Libra’s thing, anyway).
Also, emotional Cancer might find Libra to be so people-pleasing that they’re inauthentic, while Libra might think Cancer need to lighten up a bit—so Libra should try to be their most authentic self with Cancer, and Cancer should strive to be less judgmental of how Libra might act different ways with different friend groups—they’re just naturally diplomatic and know how to fit in!
Astrological incompatibility doesn’t mean that you can’t have an ah-mazing relationship though—you might just have to put in a bit more effort to really understand each other, and find a compromise to meet each other’s needs. If you’re a Cap or a Cancer, you can still vibe with a Libra—especially if your Moon signs or other parts of your birth chart are compatible. And TBH, ~astrological tension~ can also lead to ~sexual tension~, so there’s something to be said for “incompatibility”!
SEX WITH A LIBRA
Libra is ruled by Venus, which is the planet of love, beauty, and pleasure. Translation: They’re super romantic and incredible in bed. They also take foreplay just as seriously as sex itself—they love teasing their partners. Libras are also very ~visual~ people, so they appreciate it when you dress up for them (in lingerie, yes, but also just in a hot AF fit), live for nudes (both sending and receiving—there’s no dirty laundry on the floor in the backgrounds of their dick pics!), and might even paint an artistic nude portrait of you, Leonardo-DiCaprio-in-Titanic-style.
BTW, in astrology, Libra rules the kidneys, skin, and buttocks, sooooo your Libra guy may be v. into butt stuff—giving or receiving or both. Have fun and don’t forget the lube!
