Dating the fun, flirtatious Libra

IF you were born between September 23 and October 22 then you're a Libra, represented by the scales, which should mean that you're balanced — a good mix of yin and yang, a blend of good stuff. Or are you?

People who have dated Libras will tell you that the air sign is all about symmetry and strives for harmony, but they can also be judgemental with an air of superiority.

What's it like dating a Libra?

The Libra man

Keeva, 27:

You have to look a certain way and be of a certain class and intelligence, as the Libra man will see you as an extension of him, or arm candy. These men like intellectual woman, so you have to bring both beauty and brains to the table. If you don't have that energy, he will leave you high and dry.

Lateesha, 30:

He sees his woman as an investment — like the way he sees his house and car and his stock portfolio. He is suave, so she must be stylish too. The Libra is that man you will see checking himself out in his freshly waxed ride, all suited up for some event at some gentleman's spot, where the whisky is flowing and the women are hot. The Libra man is all about living life more abundantly.

Brittany, 25:

He is so obsessed with physical appearance that you may think he's crossed over to the other side, but he's just a very cool guy who likes taking care of himself. He's also a social butterfly and people pleaser, who will always be seeking attention and admiration from others. But even though he will flirt, he's a one burner who will respect you and be committed to his relationship.

Simone, 44:

He's level-headed and a problem solver, and these men make good lawyers, pastors and motivational speakers. They listen to both sides of an argument and then give their fair opinion. They are also very just and fair, and good listeners and also give good advice.

The Libra woman

Karl, 50:

She's committed and safe, and will be a good wife because she's all about structure and family and commitment. Because she wants a fulfilling relationship where both partners are happy, she will dedicate herself to creating that home environment.

Dale, 40:

She loves praise and you have to constantly be on your toes with the compliments. Libras in generally like to preen, so she will be spending lots of time on her hair and nails and overall look, and you'd better notice. You'd better be prepared also to fund that kind of luxury lifestyle, because the Libra woman is a dolly who won't blink when she's telling you what she deserves.

Patrick, 37:

You have to have money, so don't bother approaching her with your broke self. She wants elegance and luxury — think hotels every weekend and rooftop bars and sipping on champagne, instead of KFC. She also likes cleanliness, so don't be a slob, and take care of your hygiene. This is the ultimate high class lady, so approach with caution.

Kirk, 22:

She's always gonna be up for a party, just say the word. She will seem extroverted and flirty, but once you get to know her you'll realise that she's pretty cool and intelligent, she just likes to have fun.
