Libran men usually possess a good deal of taste. They also often possess a good deal of vanity. This is not one of your rough-and-ready macho types who changes his shirt every three weeks and occasionally checks the mirror to see if he's cut himself shaving. Libran men are concerned about how they look. This can produce either a well-dressed, attractive man who looks and smells good and likes quality in everything, or a preening peacock. Probably you'll see a bit of both. But it's understandable, since beauty is always important to Libra, in ideas as well as in form. His home will generally be tasteful, often luxurious, and full of state-of-the-art technology. He loves being complimented. Libran men aren't embarrassed or stiff about offering compliments, either.
The nicest side of this is that you can feel really appreciated. The darker side is that the Libra man sometimes can't get past his hangup about perfection. He's often the "sucker for a pretty face", and is frequently fooled or badly hurt when what he thought was Good, True and Beautiful turns out not to be. It may take a long time for Libra to recognise that the surface is not necessary a good index to character.
This man likes style and attractiveness in a partner. He likes style so much that he's prepared to spend a lot for it. Libra is usually generous, provided you don't take advantage (fair is fair). He also needs to know that he's appreciated. This can get tiresome when he requires appreciation from too many admirers, but the Libran who plays around is either a Libran who's running from too many emotional scenes at home, or a Libran who's desperately insecure.
The more balanced Libran is usually prepared to work hard to create a good relationship rather than hurling himself into "flings", because he likes companionship and wants something more than just a few steamy nights of good sex. He has a mind, after all, and often a brilliant one, and he needs friendship and intellectual companionship too.
Although he loathes heavy emotional scenes and often suppresses his own feelings in the name of harmony and reason, the Libra man is a real romantic. He understands things like flowers, soft music, quiet evenings in intimate restaurants, elegant parties. He can't bear an unromantic partner who has no time for his dreams, or an emotionally voracious partner who isn't interested in his ideas.
Never take him for granted. He usually won't take you for granted either, unless you've crushed his spirit by being too emotionally hungry or too flat-footed and prosaic. Then he'll show the chillier, more calculating side of his nature, the one that keeps a relationship together because it's convenient.
This is not a simple, easy temperament to get to know. He has a tendency to retreat into his head to such a degree that it can sometimes make you feel very cut off and alone. But he'll do this to excess only when he's been threatened emotionally. He needs plenty of breathing space in between emotional exchanges. This man deeply understands and appreciates the meaning of balance. Meet him halfway, and he'll come down from his ivory tower often enough to keep any reasonable partner happy.
