Let’s break down each sign a little further. This way, you’ll be able to identify your Libra man’s true feelings.
15 Signs a Libra Man is Trying to Hide His Feelings
1. He’s Flustered When He Talks to You
A Libra is known for being great at conversation. As an air sign, they have a way with words that can charm anyone. So, if you see him fumbling over his words or getting tongue-tied around you, it’s a sign he likes you.
He may get a bit tongue-tied when you ask him questions or when he’s trying to make conversation with you.
He may also get red in the face or start sweating when he’s around you. If this is out of character for him, then it’s a sign he likes you and is nervous about it.
2. He Acts Differently When Guys Flirt With You
During the early stages of the relationship, my Libra man would always change his demeanor when I was flirted with. He would get a bit more possessive and would try to act like the alpha male.
It was a bit of an ego boost, to be honest. And it’s also a sign that he likes you and is trying to mark his territory. He knows that he has competition, so he’s trying to show you that he’s the better man.
Of course, this behavior may not be so obvious at first. But if you pay attention, you’ll see that he definitely acts differently when other guys are around you.
3. He Remembers the Details
The Libra is a sharp-minded sign. They tend to remember a lot of details. You may think that this guy isn’t paying much attention to what you say because of the way he acts while you’re talking.
You may notice him quickly recalling a story you told him weeks ago. Or he might bring up details from a conversation that you had forgotten about. If he’s doing this, it’s because he is interested in your story.
No matter how stoic he acts, he can’t help but be interested in the details of your life when he likes you.
4. He Tries to Act Casual
Libra men are ruled by Venus. This planet of love and beauty makes them quite flirty and suave. But when a Libra man likes you, he may try to play it cool and act like he’s not interested.
He doesn’t want to come on too strong or scare you off. So, he may act aloof or indifferent even if he’s really into you. He’ll try to downplay his feelings and act like he’s just being friendly.
Since this isn’t his normal flirty state, it may be obvious that he is pretending he isn’t interested. Look for tell-tale signs like him not making eye contact or avoiding physical contact.
If you catch him doing this, it’s a good indicator that he likes you but is trying to hide it.
5. He’s Being Protective
A Libra man in love will want to protect his woman at all costs. He may not be the most physically intimidating guy, but he has a way of making you feel safe.
You may notice him trying to shield you from potential danger or hurt. He may also get possessive and jealous when other guys are around you. This is a clear sign that this guy likes you.
He may be acting protective as a way to mask his emotions. But deep down, he just wants to keep you safe because he cares about you.
6. His Body Language Changes
When a Libra is trying everything he can to hide his feelings from you, his body language could be a dead give-away.
He may occasionally touch you, or you may catch him gazing at you when he thinks you’re not looking. There are even more subtle signs to keep an eye out for, such as him leaning towards you during conversation or mirroring your body language.
All of these are clear signs that the Libra man likes you, even if he’s trying to play it cool. Go ahead and return the flirty body language to let him know you’re interested too.
7. He’s Not as Talkative as Usual
Have you noticed that your Libra man talks a mile a minute, except when you’re around? Perhaps he suddenly gets quiet when you enter the room. Sudden quietness is usually a sign that he likes you but is trying to hide it.
You may get the feeling that he was just talking about you when you weren’t there. And you may be right! He may think that he’s playing it cool, but his silence usually means he’s thinking of you and he’s nervous about what to say.
When a Libra man likes you, he may not be able to think straight. So don’t be surprised if he’s not as smooth and suave as usual when you’re around.
8. He’s Less Interested in Other Women
Libra men are known for having a roving eye. But when one has his sights set on a special lady, he’ll start to lose interest in other women.
He may not even notice when other women are around. This is a big change from his usual behavior and it’s a sure sign that he’s into you.
Women are attracted to Libra men as well. So if you notice them flirting and see that your guy isn’t even responding, this is a good sign that you’re the only woman in the room for him.
9. He Brags a Bit
Libra men are usually quite humble. But when he likes you, he may start to brag about himself more than usual. He’ll want to impress you with his accomplishments and skills.
This is his way of trying to win your approval and get your attention. He is a cardinal sign, meaning he’s a natural leader. So it’s only natural that he would want to take the lead in your relationship as well.
If you notice him bragging more than usual, it’s a good sign that he likes you and is trying to impress you. Just make sure he keeps it in check! It can be a turn-off if he gets too cocky.
10. His Friends Tell You How He Feels
Libra men are notoriously bad at hiding their feelings from their friends. So if you’re on good terms with them, they may unwittingly give away the truth.
A friend may mention that he’s been talking about you a lot or acting differently around you. He may also let slip that this Libra likes you but is trying not to show it.
Of course, take anything his friends say with a grain of salt. They could be just as clueless as you are! But if multiple friends tell you the same thing, there’s a good sign his feelings are real.
11. He’s Making Lots of Jokes
Libra men appreciate a good joke as witty air signs. But if he’s making more jokes than usual, it could be a sign that he likes you. He may be trying to make you laugh to get your attention.
He may also be using humor as a way to cover up his nervousness. If you notice that his jokes are getting progressively sillier, it’s a good sign that he’s into you.
Librans like to impress their potential partners with their intellect and wit. So keep an eye out to see if he is hiding his feelings behind a joke.
12. He Texts…but Doesn’t Initiate
So you’re sitting by your phone waiting for a text to come through. You would love to hear from your Libra, but you don’t want to be the one to break the ice!
Finally, you give in and send him a quick message. And to your surprise, your guy gets back to you almost instantaneously.
This is a clear sign that he is waiting for you to reach out and can’t wait to respond. He may ask a question to keep the conversation going, such as “what are you up to today?” or “how was your day?”
By keeping the conversation going, he’s showing that he’s interested in you and wants to know more about you. So if you notice this happening, it’s a good sign that he likes you.
13. His True Feelings Come Out
Libra men love to share their emotions as well as tell stories. So if he’s confiding in you and sharing his innermost thoughts, it’s a good sign that he likes you.
He may also start to open up about his past relationships or share things that he’s never told anyone before. This is a clear sign of trust and shows that he values your opinion.
If you notice him being more open and vulnerable around you, it’s a good sign that he’s starting to fall for you. Even if he isn’t being romantic, he’s testing the waters to see how you’ll respond.
14. He’s Hiding His Feelings
On the other hand, your Libra guy may hold back when it comes to sharing. Confused air signs may not even know how they feel half the time, especially if they’re interested in someone.
He may also be trying to be mysterious and alluring. By not revealing everything about himself, he’s leaving you wanting more. So, if you feel like your Libra is hiding something, it may be because he likes you.
15. He Dresses Up
Have you noticed your man looking sharper lately? It’s likely your Libra friend wants to show you how good he looks!
Librans take pride in their appearance and want to look their best when they’re around someone they’re attracted to. So if you notice him dressing up more, it’s a good sign that he likes you.
How to Know if a Libra Man Is Serious About You
Now that you know the signs a Libra man likes you, it’s time to find out if he’s serious about you. There are a few signs that his feelings are growing.
Firstly, you may notice that he’s more affectionate than usual. He may start to touch you more or give you compliments. This sign is ruled by Venus, making your guy very comfortable with expressing his love through physical touch.
Secondly, he may start to make plans with you for the future. He may not be ready to commit just yet, but he’s definitely interested in seeing where things go.
He may ask questions such as “what are you doing next weekend?” or “would you like to go out for dinner sometime?”
If you notice him making an effort to spend more time with you, it’s a good sign that he likes you and is starting to fall for you.
Lastly, he may start introducing you to his friends and family. This is a clear sign that he’s serious about you and sees you as a potential partner. Libra guys love to bring partners into their social lives.
If your Libra guy is doing any of these things, it’s a good sign that he’s serious about you. Just remember to take things slow with this guy. Don’t try to push him into anything too quickly. He needs time to make up his mind and figure out what he wants.
Signs a Libra Man Is Playing You
Libras are also known to be players and are the flirts of the zodiac. If you’re not careful, your Libra guy may start to play games with you. Here are a few ways you can tell if he’s trying to use you or isn’t really committed to the relationship:
If he starts to cancel plans with you or is always busy, it’s a sign that he doesn’t really want to spend time with you. If he expects you to be free but doesn’t reciprocate, he’s taking advantage of you.
Another sign that he’s playing you is if he always lets you pay for things. Librans are ruled by the scales, so they believe in balance.
Normally, they are willing to go half on date nights or take turns paying. If he always expects you to pay, it’s a sign that he’s taking advantage of your generosity.
Lastly, if he starts to flirt with other women in front of you, it’s a clear sign that he’s playing you. Libras are known for being flirty by nature, but if he’s doing it right in front of you, it’s a sign that he doesn’t respect you.
He may be testing you to see if you’ll put up with this behavior. If you do, he knows he can get away with it. But if you put your foot down and tell him to stop, he’ll know that you’re not someone to be messed with.
Let your Libra know that you’re not going to put up with his games. If he’s serious about you, he’ll stop playing them.
The Bottom Line: How Libra Men Hide Their Feelings
Librans are known for being smooth talkers and charmers. But when it comes to love, they can be quite shy. This is especially true if they have been single for a long time and are just starting to get into the dating world again.
If you see any of the signs mentioned above, he is probably hiding his true feelings while trying to get close to you.
The more you make your Libra feel comfortable and safe in the relationship, the sooner he will warm up. Your Libra man loves a woman who is confident, independent, and secure.
So show him that you’re all of those things and more. When he sees that you’re not going to put up with any BS, he’ll start to open up more and show you his true feelings.
