The first thing that you are likely to notice about a Libra woman is the perfection of her social graces. She is charming, communicative and easy-going, all of which make her extremely popular among friends and acquaintances. She has natural social abilities and has a knack of making people comfortable around her. While she may not be the one to suggest an evening out, she will surely find a way to get you to ask her. And once she says yes to a date, decide on a social scene like a fancy restaurant where there are likely to be beautiful, smart people about her. On the other hand, if you want it to be more of a casual setting, take her out dancing to a classy nightclub where she may even be glad to bump into some friend of hers.
A Libra woman is charming and pleasant to be with. During a conversation, you can trust her to fill up any awkward silences. Also she is usually very observant and will be quick to pick up verbal as well as non-verbal cues from her partner. If she is having a good time with you, she will find a way to let you know without being obvious about it. Agreeable manners, a light seductiveness and only a touch of mystery - all these qualities make a Libra woman one of the most delightful and popular dating partners.
However, Librans are slow to get involved in emotional relationships. They find deeply sensitive people slightly bewildering and will shrink away from messy personal situations. Excessive display of emotions is almost embarrassing for them. This could be because the ruling element of this zodiac sign is Air, which is why a Libran treats personal relationships with an airy detachment. So while your girlfriend may make an excellent partner for a casual date, if you are depending on her to accompany you to a family occasion like a wedding or a Thanksgiving dinner, she may ask for some time to think about it.
The most definitive quality of a Libra perhaps is a balanced temperament. People of this sign are capable of looking at a situation from various perspectives instead of rushing to take a stand on it. Small wonder then that the icon which symbolizes this zodiac is the Scales which stands for a balanced outlook and an equable temperament. This trait is also responsible for the Libran’s excellent social skills since people are attracted to her moderate nature and the absence of extremes.
Librans find it necessary to have harmony in their lives. They are repulsed by outrageous behavior and an ugly mentality. In their external manifestation, these traits take on the form of an immaculate taste and a highly evolved aesthetic sense. So when going on a date with a Libra woman you must pay the greatest attention to what you wear, how you smell and appear to others. More likely than not, her tastes will veer towards the elegant and the timeless with clean cut designs and classic styles. It would be a good idea to refrain from loud colors, knockout colognes and gold bracelets. If they can afford it, Librans will most often be found to possess expensive paintings, sculptures or other works of art. Even those who are not as well-off will at least surround themselves with some evidence of beauty like a Persian rug, a potted geranium or an antique vase. So if you keen to give your Libran girlfriend the perfect gift, keep an eye out for something beautiful and classy.
Another quality among Librans that is exemplified by the symbol of the Scales is a desire for fairplay and justice. Their innate ability to see an issue from multiple perspectives makes them a natural diplomat or a conciliator. For this very reason, A Libra is a master collaborator too which is evident from the way he or she will convince people of diverse opinions to agree to work together. You can see this trait in your Libra girlfriend too when she plays the peacemaker in the family, soothing ruffled feathers and bringing about cheer and goodwill.
The downside of a Libran’s diplomatic trait is an unwillingness to take a strong stand even when the gravity of the situation demands it. Similarly they may take too long to make up their minds and often vacillate between extremes till they find a personal equilibrium. The desire for harmony may also slide into an inability to confront harsh realities of life. Your girlfriend, like many others of her zodiac, may turn away from unpleasant situations or refuse to talk about uncomfortable issues. While this may not have much bearing on a casual affair, in case of deeper relationships it is crucial for partners to be able to trust and honestly talk to each other.
A Libra woman is much more than a social butterfly. While it is true that she has among the best social graces in the zodiac, she also has a clear and impartial mind to add substance to her personality. Best of all is her belief in the value of truth and fairplay without which many of those with stronger convictions may find it difficult to change the world.
Curiously enough for a person to shun emotional entanglements, a Libra is happiest when part of a team, especially one which has two members like two halves of the Scale. And in her subconscious self, she may be searching for the ultimate team-maker of all – marriage. So even if your Libra girlfriend seems to be taking forever to make up her mind about you, rest assured that when she does, she will have found the equilibrium she has been searching for all along. And knowing her love of harmony, it is not one which she will disturb in a hurry.
