If it really bothers you when he flirts don’t hesitate to pull him aside to let him know as he may not even be aware it is bothering you.

Libras are constantly doing a self-check to ensure they remain balanced, and they are always looking for ways to make their lives and the lives of loved ones even better.
All that said, if your Libra Man is out of balance, he may be overly flirtatious and even prone to having several fleeting, superficial relationships.
Libra Man Traits, Personality, Characteristics
There are just so many attributes that are attractive when it comes to a Libra male. They make excellent friends, mates, spouses, fathers, and their temperament is balanced so well, it makes them even more appealing.
With such a balanced temperament, the Libra male rarely gets involved in out-of-control conflicts. As a parent, his patience can seem almost in league with sainthood. As a spouse or mate, the Libra man’s temperament often serves to keep conflicts from blowing up out of proportion and helps in finding a super-fast resolution. Just as he as a light temper, he has a kind resilience and is not one to hold a grudge.
Of course, being in balance in all things can leave some Libra Men on the fence about certain subjects and these creatures are prone to being indecisive. Weighing all sides, they may spend too much time in the weighing and never crack down in the middle with a real, clear cut decision. This leaves the Libra Male feeling pressured when it comes time to deciding which causes him considerable stress. In response to this, the Libra Man selects or choses, but may not really be certain he backs his choice at all. His hesitation may prove irritating to some people who expect quick decisions and depend on decisive action. Libra Men are also prone to chattiness which is an attribute that might not appeal to some who prefer lighter, less frequent conversation.
Hearth & Home
You’ll find a Libra Man has more than one dimension to his outstanding personality, and in fact, there are so many fascinating and fantastic characteristics that your Libra Man has, it’s no wonder he has little problem finding a mate fast. Beyond his physique, great looks, chattiness, and exceptional mastership of conversation, he is well-tempered, honest, and one with an amazing amount of integrity. “I BALANCE” is the key phrase for this man, and this is what he attempts to do at every turn, whether it is in relationships or day to day situations where he is seeking the simplest, most fair solution possible.
A Libra Man is very visual and appreciates all things of great beauty, so his home environment may serve a reflection of this. His sense of balance is present in his home, as you’ll notice an obvious symmetry visible in the household décor. Everything has its place and he loves comfortable posh surroundings. He is proud to entertain others in his home environment as well, so there is likely conversational pieces and lovely artwork throughout the abode so it can help in striking up conversation … that’s just what he loves to do!
Health & Well-Being
The kidneys are under the Rulership of this Sun Sign as they help in keeping the body balanced by ridding it of toxins, and, for the most part, there are two of the organs present in a healthy person, thereby demonstrating symmetry within the body. Libras are therefore prone to afflictions of the kidneys, including nephritis. The skin may also be prone to health issues in a Libra male and may present as skin eruptions of eczema.
Career and Finance
Libra males have so many talents that they prove successful in several industries. You might find a male working as a carpenter, architect, or designer of some kind as he has a keen eye for what is visually pleasing. More so, he may very well be into the arts, drawing, painting, or some other artistic pursuit. Of course, their conversational skills will get them everywhere and fast! Superior at debates, excellent at persuasion, and good at negotiation, the communication skills the Libra Man has go a long way in his career. He may work in customer service, marketing, advertising, public relations, or he may be a public or inspirational speaker. His sense of fairness for all can likely lead him into the legal field where he is a correctional officer, police officer, lawyer or judge.
Financially, Libra Men fall in the middle road, which is probably the one and only time they do. He can be frugal or he can be a spendthrift, and he can bounce back and forth between the two extremes. His love of what is visually pleasing may drive him to spend more than he has, but his concerns for the future may have him clinging to his coins.

Dating a Libra Man
Libras have an eye for beauty and some Libras may be artists or into fashion design. Like Taureans, Libra Men also enjoy the finer things in life including theater, music, wine, and good food. With the Libra Man being so social, he loves to entertain his friends in his home, but usually, it is a closely-knit circle as he doesn’t really care too much for being in a crowd for too long a period. Libra is no homebody by any means, though, unless they are experiencing a significant imbalance and they are therefore claustrophobic. Instead, Libras enjoy equal amounts of time in the home environment and traveling the world to see sites that are of historical importance and that appeal to his visual senses. Socializing with other people around the world is also something a Libra can easily enjoy.
Libras don’t take to well to being wrong about something, especially when they pride themselves on their knowledge and skill. Libra Men have a serious dislike for those who are rude or condescending as well. They do not like being rude either, and they spend much of their time righting their world so to speak, as they seek eternal balance. The Libra Man likes to debate all possibilities and, is therefore, slower in the decision-making process: This allows the Libra time to think about all angles, but also makes it difficult for the Libra male to boil anything down to a single decision. Libras don’t like being questioned or pushed into deciding. Part of the reason for delayed decision making has everything to do with Libra’s desire to be totally fair with all people, and unfairness is one of the Libra man’s pet peeves. While being social, Libra’s also do not like being in crowds and this dislike can be so strong it can almost prove to be claustrophobic in a way.
Best Match for the Libra Man
Libra males are amazing siblings with their temperament being mild their entire life through. They are peacekeepers and love their siblings, especially those who interact with them through play and conversation. Lifelong friendships can be established with a Libra male and his siblings, and in adult, if a sibling is in need, the Libra male is there on the spot ready to help in any way possible.
When it comes to friends, your Libra male will have a lot of them, both male and female. He understands the importance of having a network of friends, and this will give him an edge in his life and career. Libra males love to learn and to share such knowledge, and in this way, they are much like a Gemini, but one who is not so prone to extremes.
Libra men make outstanding fathers and perfect role models for their children. Their easy-going parenting style makes the child comfortable to open up to the father so they develop a very close bond. However, if he is too easy-going it can make the child’s mother come across as the tough guy when it comes to discipline. A gentle reminder to the Libra man that a bit of balance is required in all things, including discipline, and it should rectify the problem quickly.
As a mate and spouse, you cannot find a kinder, sweeter, gentler, or more compassionate and romantic partner. For those lucky enough to pair with a Libra man there are many good times ahead; his sense of humor, easy conversational style, and his sense of fairness in all things promise long years of happiness together with the person he chooses as his beloved!
Libra and Aquarius are compatible and many go on to have very successful marriages. Both Aquarius and the Libra have an eye for all things beautiful and enjoy being part of the community. Providing the Libra remains flexible whenever the Aquarian mate needs some downtime to his or herself, the relationship can thrive. Gemini and Libra are also compatible whereas Libra can help in balancing out the extremes the Gemini has a penchant for; Libra comprehends the needs of the Gemini personality, and while Libra is about Balance and Gemini about Feeling, the pairing goes along well with just a touch of intriguing contrast.
While being compatible with Sagittarius, a Libra might find a bit of trouble with the naturally laid back and carefree nature of the Sagittarius partner. Nonetheless, the two can pair off nicely and even enter into marriage quite successfully. Sagittarius will prove an exciting partner for Libra, and they share a love for social events and the posh, finer things in life. The shining Leo and the loving Libra man get along quite well too.
They both love the regal nature of beautiful things and living a lux life. Libra expects the finer things in life feeling they are well earned while Leo demands the finer things in life as a sense of entitlement. Scorpio and Libras are also compatible, Libra’s demand for fairness appeals to the dominant Scorpio personality and Scorpio appreciates Libra’s sense for the exquisite. A Libra can also match up with a Libra if both have the same sense of fairness and if they share the exact same wants out of the relationship, because rest assuredly, they will be quite fair with one another.
The Libra Man is least compatible with Cancer or Capricorn; the Libra Man is one that appreciates his individual freedom and has difficulty contending with the somewhat moody, restrictive personality traits of Cancer, and while Cancer is a homebody, Libra will crave socialization, so, therein a wedge is driven. And, even though a Capricorn is appealing to a Libra, the Capricorn is a bit too steady and this may leave the Libra Man a bit tired or even bored. If the two can find a way to keep the relationship exciting, the couple may be able to make it lasting.
Astrology & Zodiac Gifts
When buying a gift for your Libra Man, keep his love for music in mind. If he has a CD player in his vehicle, then CDs might be appropriate, but if he’s all about the latest digital technology, then perhaps an Apple iTunes card preloaded with money makes for an ideal gift. Alternatively, you might want to consider tickets to a concert, play, or some other live show. If you send him a card in the mail to simply communicate your caring or a level of concern for him, this will also move his heart.
Facts, Mythology, & Metaphysics
The sign of Libra corresponds to the goddess Themis, a Titaness, in the Greek mythos, who is analogous to the Roman goddess Justitia, who is also called “Lady Justice.” The Titaness who is associated with Justice; she is the goddess of has the scales of justice as her primary symbol. The word “Themis,” literally translates as “divine law,” as it is derived from the idea of “those things put into their place or proper position.” Libra also corresponds to the goddess Ma’at from the Egyptian pantheon who is the goddess of both truth and justice. If comparing the sign of Libra with corresponding masculine deities, most assuredly the sign is associated with Anubis, the guardian of the dead, who leads the deceased to the scales where their heart can be weighed against a feather (the symbol of the goddess of truth Ma’at).
The sign of Libra corresponds with the Justice card in the Tarot, which depicts Justitia on her throne with a set of balanced scales and wielding the Sword of Truth in the upright position. Libra comes to be a sign associated with the double-edged Sword of Truth requiring one cut away all that is not true or pure and leaving only the purity of what remains. When Justice comes up in a reading the restoral to balance is found in returning to one’s roots or the root of the situation while removing loose ends or elements that are no longer of service to the querent. Likewise, through the planetary association of Venus, one will find a connection with Libra and The Empress Card: The natural and intuitive nurturer associated with the Love Goddess. These are characteristics commonly displayed by a Libra the nurturing and loving nature that makes Libra such a social creature to begin with; The sign is also associated with two cards in the major arcana, including the Six of Pentacles and the Queen of Pentacles, with the lattermost card representing balance in a 50/50 give and take relationship, one equal and sharing in reciprocity. The Queen of Pentacles features a hare in the card, a symbol of fertility but also one linked to Libra as well, and this reveals the motherly, nurturing, and well-grounded nature of a Libra in balance.
Libra resonates with the number 6. This number’s energy corresponds with individuals demonstrating a high level of intellect, but also a person who is very imaginative, loving, creative, and highly responsible. The number six’s energies present in a Libra personality as characteristics representing a protector, provider, healer, and a person who enjoys simplicity.
