A Libra man can be one of the most difficult zodiac signs to read. This is because Libra values harmony and courtesy above all other considerations, including honesty. He will be charming no matter how he actually feels about you, so it can be hard to know if he really likes you. Furthermore, he tends to have an indirect communication style, so one can almost feel like one needs an interpreter to understand him. Yet, as always, we are here to help. Below are nine signs that a Libra man is truly interested in you.

1. He goes out with you

Libra has a reputation for being a bit wishy-washy and indecisive, but that reputation is misleading. It is true that a Libra man rarely speaks any opinions, especially to those he does not know. You can be certain that he has them, however. He just does not want to offend anyone or ruffle any feathers.

A Libra man knows what he wants, and he goes after it in his own way. He is also quite skilled in getting out of anything he does not want. If a Libra man asks you out on a date and if he shows up, he is definitely interested in you.

If later in the relationship he starts to feel differently, he will begin to avoid you. He will deny that anything is wrong or that anything has changed, but he will suddenly start to be busy whenever you are together. He may also conveniently “forget” dates or to answer your messages. He will not necessarily ghost you, but he will not make it easy to get together. He will hope that you will end the relationship so that he does not have to.

Because of this, if a Libra man spends time with you, you can be sure that this is a sign that he is interested in you.

2. He takes you on a romantic date

There is no sign that does romance better than a Libra man. Not only does he have a very well-defined aesthetic sense, but he also has a flair for the dramatic. If a Libra man is interested in you, he will go all out to plan a beautiful and magical night on the town.

He will expect you to play the part as well. Allow yourself to be treated like a princess and dress the part. While all men notice appearances, a Libra man does so even more than most.

Also, allow him to show his chivalrous side by opening doors for you and helping you with your chair. This is a Libra man at his finest. Enjoy it.

3. He shares his opinions with you

As mentioned before, a Libra man tends to keep his thoughts and opinions to himself. Yet, he often has quite interesting ones. A Libra man’s skill with diplomacy allows him to talk to many different people about many different things. He is also able to see all sides of an issue in a way that few other signs can. This means that he has interesting and sometimes unconventional thoughts.

Yet, it is quite rare for a Libra man to share these thoughts and opinions with others. He will only do so with someone he feels comfortable with and usually only when he begins to fall in love.

4. He turns off the charm

One of the most confusing things about a Libra man is that he tends to flirt with everyone, and he is charming to perfect strangers, whether he likes them or not. Indeed, he is often more engaging with people he does not like. As you start becoming closer to him, he may seem to stop making an effort to impress you.

As strange as this may seem, this is often one of the signs that a Libra man is interested in you. To understand this, you need to understand how a Libra man thinks.

A Libra man values good manners, especially good manners in public. There is absolutely nothing more horrifying to him that being seen as rude or impolite. On the other hand, it is generally ok to him to relax and be himself in private, when he is with those that he is close to.

So, he will put on his charm for acquaintances, but he feels freer to take off his mask in private. If he does so with you, he is demonstrating that he is feeling close to you.

5. He shows you his mischievous or rebellious side

For all of his good manners, it is very common for a Libra man to have a mischievous or rebellious side. He tends to have a good sense of humor, and at times, he likes to be a bit naughty.

Now, a Libra man would never do or say anything that might cause embarrassment to someone in public, but he often has his own private little jokes. It is rare that he ever tells these private little jokes to anyone, so if he does with you, you can be sure that this is one of the signs a Libra man is interested in you.

He may also want to do things with you that are unconventional or even a little risky. He may want to take a trip with you to a new and different place.

6. He becomes slightly aloof

At the beginning of a relationship, a Libra man is warm and talkative. At a certain point, as the relationship progresses, he may start to become a bit withdrawn and aloof, especially in comparison with his earlier behavior. This may make you think that he is no longer into you.

It can be especially disconcerting, because he may be flirting with other women at the same time. You may start to feel rather jealous and upset.

If this happens with a Libra man, you may want to step back before you allow your emotions to take over. If a Libra man no longer wanted to be with you, he would no longer be with you. It is as simple as that.

If he is still with you but becomes rather quiet around you, it may actually be a sign that he is feeling very close with you. The mask of a Libra man can be quite tiring. For all his charm, he often is quite tense inside, as he is trying to maintain perfect manners. This apparent aloofness is really just his feeling close enough with you to relax and to not have to talk all of the time.

7. He becomes visibly angry with you or around you

As with many of the signs that a Libra man is interested in you, this one can seem rather contradictory and baffling. Yet, it is the nature of Libra to avoid conflict at all costs. There is nothing a Libra man dislikes more than unpleasantness of any kind. Because of this, he is skilled at controlling his feelings, in particularly negative feelings like anger.

On the other hand, despite his distaste for conflict, he is human. Even Libra natives are not immune to uncomfortable feelings such as anger and jealousy. They will come out from time to time.

Yet, a Libra native will not let these feelings out in front of mere acquaintances. He will only let them show with people he feels extremely close to. In many cases, your first fight with a Libra man will not come until the relationship has progressed very far.

As upsetting as your first fight with a Libra man may be, take heart. He would not show you his angry feelings unless he was truly interested in you.

8. He communicates with you directly

A Libra man is the master of indirect communication. Indeed, it can sometimes feel like he is talking in code, and you have to decipher it. The reason for this is his desire to avoid unpleasantness at all costs. If a Libra man asked for something directly, you might refuse directly, which would be awkward. Instead, if he merely hints at what he wants, it makes it easy for you to avoid the issue without having to actually refuse him.

Yet, when a Libra man is truly interested in you, he will begin to tell you what he wants and needs directly. A Libra man takes relationships quite seriously, so when he is in one, he wants to make sure to get it right. For this reason, if he is really interested in you, he will risk direct communication.

9. He will overtly take charge

One of the things that people tend to forget about Libra is that it is one of the four Cardinal Signs. Cardinal Signs are the leaders of the zodiac. Usually, a Libra man takes charge in subtle ways. He makes suggestions, and he tried to make it your idea to do what he wants.

When a Libra man is truly interested in you, he will not want to leave anything to chance. It is in the nature of this sign to be in a relationship, and he will do everything in his power to make everything go the way he wants it.
