When you’re dating a Libra man, they can sweep you off your feet by showing off their charming ways. This man is ruled by the planet Venus, which graces him with an air of refinement, good taste, and social skills.
If you’re not careful, however, you may find yourself being played by this sign. I remember when I was dating my Libra man that I was so distracted by him wining and dining me that I didn’t realize he wasn’t being entirely faithful.
But now I know better, and I’m here to help you see the red flags that your Libra man might be playing you.
So, without further ado, here are 12 ways to tell if a Libra man is playing you. Read on for the full scoop!
How to Know if a Libra Man Is Playing You: 12 Signs
Here are some of the most common red flags that may suggest that your Libra man is a player. If you’re experiencing any of the following, it’s time to have a serious talk with your guy.
1. He Asks for Favors All of the Time
Libras like to indulge in the finer things in life, and if your man is playing you, he may try to take advantage of your generosity. He may constantly ask you for favors, whether it’s picking up the tab at dinner or lending him money.
Don’t fall for it! If a Libra man is truly interested in you, he’ll make an effort to reciprocate your kindness. A Libra man who is interested in a future with you will give you favors back, without being asked.
2. He Hits on Other Women
Libra men are major flirts. They enjoy the attention of the opposite sex and they’re known for being smooth talkers. If you’re dating a Libra man and you catch him hitting on other women, it’s a surefire sign that he’s playing you.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s cheating on you, but it does mean that he’s not ready to commit to you. If you’re looking for a serious relationship, you need to move on from this guy or confront him about his behavior.
It’s also a good idea to let him know that you’re hurt by his behavior. If he makes a change after that, it shows that he’s interested in keeping you around. If he doesn’t adjust his behavior after you ask him to, he’s clearly only interested in playing games.
3. He Won’t Commit to Plans
Libras are air signs, which means they’ve been known to blow around and change their minds frequently. If your Libra man won’t commit to plans with you, it’s a sign that he doesn’t want to be pinned down.
He may say things like, “I’m not sure what my schedule is like next week,” or “I’ll let you know if I can make it to your birthday party.”
He may also cancel plans at the last minute or make excuses as to why he can’t see you. At worst, he may ghost you entirely. If your Libra man is doing any of these things, he’s playing you.
4. He Won’t Commit to a Relationship Status
It’s one thing to avoid committing to plans, but it’s an even bigger sign if your Libra man won’t commit to any relationship status. When a Libra man won’t get specific about where you two stand, it means he doesn’t want to label the relationship.
In other words, he’s keeping his options open. He may say things like, “I’m not ready for a relationship,” or “I don’t believe in labels.” When I dated my Libra man, he told me that he didn’t want to put a label on what we had because it would “spoil the fun.”
I should have known then that he was playing me. If your guy is making excuses like this, it’s time to move on.
5. He’s Not Emotionally Affectionate
Libra men are mostly intellectual, but they’re also known for being great mediators. They can be very loving, but they often express their love through acts of service rather than words or emotions.
If your Libra man isn’t being emotionally affectionate with you, it’s a sign that he doesn’t want to get too attached. He may not say “I love you,” or he may avoid talking about his feelings entirely.
He may also never initiate physical affection, like hugging or kissing. If your guy is doing any of these things, it’s a sign that he’s playing you.
6. He’s Acting Critical
Libra men are known to be diplomatic and easy-going. They hate conflict and they’re usually very good at avoiding it. If your guy is being critical of you, it’s a sign that he’s trying to start an argument.
He may say things like, “You’re always so messy,” or “You’re always late.” He may also nitpick your appearance or your behavior. If your guy is doing any of these things, it’s a sign that he’s playing you.
He’s likely trying to pick a fight so that he can have an excuse to leave or so that he can avoid spending time with you. This gives your Libra guy the leverage he needs to play you.
7. He Doesn’t Tell His Friends or Family About You
Libra men are natural bridge-builders. They’re known for being social creatures who enjoy being surrounded by people. They love to introduce their friends and family to the people they’re dating.
If your guy is keeping you a secret, it’s a sign that he’s playing you. He may tell you, “I’m not ready for my parents to meet you,” or “I don’t want my friends to get the wrong idea.”
This may sound like he wants to take it slow, but it’s possible that he is introducing other people to his friends and family while keeping you hidden. This is a clear sign that he’s playing you.
8. He Acts Unfairly
Libras are known for their sense of justice. They hate to see anyone being treated unfairly, including themselves. If your guy is acting unfairly, it’s a sign that he’s playing you.
He may take advantage of your kindness or he may take credit for your work. He may also manipulate you into doing things that you don’t want to do. If your guy is doing any of these things, it’s a sign that he’s playing you.
He wouldn’t treat someone that he wanted a long-term relationship with this way. There would be serious consequences. If your Libra man is acting this way, you know he doesn’t care about the long-term repercussions.
9. He’s Playing Mind Games
The biggest Libra man vice is his ability to play mind games. He is a smart person, and he knows how to make you think you’re the one in the wrong.
He may say things like, “I never said that,” or “You’re being crazy.” He will try to gaslight you into thinking that you’re losing your mind. If your guy is doing any of these things, it’s a sign that he’s playing you.
A Libra man is playing the relationship in this way in order to maintain control. He doesn’t want to feel like he’s in a committed relationship, so he’s using these mind games as a way to keep you at arm’s length.
10. There’s Never Time for You
If your Libra man finds time for a quick date or a steamy session between the sheets but can never stay for long, this is a pretty big red flag. He wants to spend time with you, but only superficially,
You may notice him avoiding overnights, long conversations, or even leaving you at an event on your own when he’s ready to go home. He may seem antsy when you are together as if he’s waiting to do something else after his time with you.
A Libra man normally has better manners than this, so it’s likely that he only wants you for one thing. If your guy is doing any of these things, it’s a sign that he’s playing you.
11. He Prioritizes Other Things Over You
Have you ever had plans with your Libra man, only for him to cancel them when a shiny object came his way? This could look like him canceling on you to go play video games with his buddies or going out drinking with his buddies instead of spending time with you.
This can be hurtful, especially if you were really looking forward to seeing him. If your guy is doing any of these things, he isn’t very motivated to make things work with you.
Even worse, he may be seeing another woman that he’s more interested in. No matter what the reason is, if your guy is doing this, he isn’t prioritizing the relationship.
12. He’s Never Willing to Compromise
A Libra man is known for being a great negotiator. He’s able to see both sides of every argument and he’s always willing to find a compromise.
However, if your guy is never willing to compromise with you, it’s a sign that he’s trying to create distance in the relationship as well as take control of it.
He’s not concerned with winning your mind and heart over because he doesn’t consider your feelings on a deeper level. He’s showing you that he doesn’t respect your opinion.
This is a disrespectful way to treat someone with whom he’s supposed to be in a relationship with.
How Do You Know When a Libra Man Is Losing Interest?
When your Libra man exhibits any of these red flags, it’s a sign that he’s playing you. But how do you know when a Libra man is losing interest?
There are some key things to look for that will help you determine whether your guy is really into you or if he’s losing that spark.
Firstly, you may notice that he’s pulled away from you emotionally. He’s not as interested in hearing about your day or how you’re feeling. He may even seem distant or aloof when you’re around him.
Another sign that a Libra man is losing interest is if he starts to cancel plans with you more often. He may make excuses like he’s too busy at work or he’s not feeling well.
But the truth is, he’s just not that interested in spending time with you anymore. If your guy starts to exhibit any of these signs, it’s a sign that he’s losing interest in you.
The best thing you can do at this point is to talk to your Libra man. He may not initiate the conversation. But if you’re clear and direct with him, he’ll be able to understand what you’re saying.
It’s also important to give him some space at this point. He may need time to figure out what he wants. If he comes back to you, great! But if not, it’s okay to move on.
Signs a Libra Man Is Lying
Your Libra man is extremely intelligent. Sometimes he may use this superpower as a way to manipulate and lie to you in a relationship. He is generally charismatic, so you’ll have to pay close attention to catch the signs of him lying. Here are a few ways you can spot a Libra man lying:
- He’ll avoid eye contact.
- His stories will be inconsistent.
- He’ll fidget or play with his hands.
- He’ll make up excuses for his behavior.
- He’ll change the subject.
- He’ll get defensive when you confront him.
If your guy is exhibiting any of these behaviors, it’s a sign that he’s not being truthful with you. It may be difficult to confront him about this because he’s so good at lying. But if you’re able to catch him in a lie, it’ll be easier to see the truth about your relationship.
A good way to get some context on your Libra is by asking mutual friends. Hearing stories from other people who have been lied to is much easier to believe and can help you see if there are certain patterns that this Libra has.
Still, it’s important to give your Libra the benefit of the doubt. In general, this zodiac sign is down-to-earth, straightforward, and simply looking to avoid drama.
If you’re able to see past the little white lies, your relationship with a Libra will be smooth sailing.
