If you’re in love with a Libra or looking to get closer to one, you know that you’ve got to engage their brain as well as their heart.
Libras are the thinkers and debaters of the Zodiac. The way to their heart is often through their intellect.
But Libras also have a softer side that loves art, music, and cosy settings. How do you find a way to engage all the facets of the versatile Libra? What’s the best way to honor their serious scholarly side and their playful, carefree side?
Read on for 6 great date ideas for the Libra in your life:
1. Feed their mind
Libras love to think, learn, and discuss.
Take your Libra to a lecture on an interesting topic. Check out your public library, area museums, or the local university for offerings. There is always something to be learned about.
After the lecture, take your Libra out for coffee and dessert so you can discuss what you just heard.
Even if you end up disagreeing, the discussion will make for an intellectually invigorating time and will light up your Libra sweetie.
2. Learn something together
Take a class together on something you’re both interested in.
It could be a sushi-making class at the gourmet supermarket, a painting class at the local wine-and-paint place, or something arcane like beekeeping or homebrewing through the community college, library, or local environmental organization.
Libras are always looking to learn new information and skills.
They love nothing better than learning with someone, so they can talk about it afterwards. Be adventurous and try something neither of you has ever experimented with before.
3. Get artsy
Take your Libra to a new art exhibit, extra points if you can go to an exhibition or gallery opening. Whether it’s a high profile national tour of a collection at your city’s major art museum or a mostly-unknown local artist at a tiny gallery, your Libra is sure to love it.
Give your Libra the opportunity to get all dressed up in their most flowy, artsy clothes, and make an evening of it, complete with a nightcap afterward.
4. Hit a party
Libras are incredibly social, and they’ve never met a stranger.
Take your Libra date to a party where they can socialize, schmooze, and make new friends to their heart’s content. By the end of the night, they’ll have met everyone in the room.
You either take your Libra to a party with your most thoughtful, eccentric, erudite friends or you can throw a party to bring them all together in one place.
Make sure that the food and the drinks are both excellent, perhaps the only thing Libras like about parties better than meeting new people is being able to nibble and sip on interesting snacks and cocktails.
5. Make ‘em laugh
Libras can be mighty serious thinkers, but they also have a wonderful sense of humor.
Make your Libra laugh, and you’ll never regret it. Take your Libra to a comedy show, improv night, or comedic play and let the giggles commence.
Be mindful though. Libras have a strong sense of justice, and they won’t appreciate a comic routine or movie full of tired sexist jokes and excessive potty humor.
Choose something smart, thoughtful, and funny, and you’ve got a winner. Want to level up? Try taking an improv class with your Libra sweetie.
Libras are all about style and sophistication.
Yet, they’re not afraid to look a little silly if it will make those around them laugh.
6. Go off the beaten path
Libras are adventurers, and they love to have adventures in their own backyard.
Take your Libra to an underappreciated neighborhood in your city or a nearby one. Seek out undiscovered gems of coffee houses, bookstores, art galleries, or antique shops.
Check to see what fun attractions nearby small towns have, and make a day of exploring that tiny place known for the county’s best strawberry pie or oldest continuously operating general store.
Else, find an out of the way place in the country where you can pick in-season fruit like apples, strawberries, or peaches.
Dating a Libra is always an exercise in balance
Libras need just enough of everything – serious debate and playful banter, intellectual stimulation, and goofy fun, time with others and time one-on-one with their partners, adventure time and time to be a homebody.
Keep your Libra’s head and heart engaged, and you’re on the right track. Also, remember to make time both for serious reflection and exploration and for childlike playfulness. Find ways to keep you and your Libra learning and growing together, and things are sure to go well for you.
