Who wouldn’t want a cool, collected, intelligent friend that still knows how to cut loose and enjoy themselves?
Sounds great, right? If you’re looking for a tactful, sensitive pal that will the extra mile to make you happy, you need to befriend a Libra.
So, what makes them so awesome?
1. They hate conflict:
Your Libra friend can’t stand drama, and they will go to great lengths to avoid arguments.
Sometimes they might stray into people-pleasing territory, but a Libran would tell you that it’s better to run the risk of being too nice rather than risk a fight.
They are not petty, they do not hold grudges, and they aren’t bothered about getting revenge on people who have wronged them.
Librans are natural diplomats.
They are patient enough to listen to both sides of an argument, and then try to broker peace.
Their sign is associated with a pair of scales, which symbolizes their talent for weighing up two sides of the same story.
Injustice upsets them deeply.
If you hang out with a Libra on a regular basis, your own diplomacy skills will improve.
They can break even the worst news with grace.
2. They tend to be indecisive, so they are always open to your suggestions:
It isn’t quite fair to say that Librans don’t know what they want from life, but they do have trouble making everyday decisions.
For example, if you are going to the movies, they will have a hard time picking out a film.
If you’re at a restaurant, they will take a long time to order their meal.
Sometimes, this can be annoying.
On the bright side, they will rarely boss you around.
If you like to take the lead in your friendships, a Libra will suit you well.
They will be relieved that someone else is taking responsibility for all those annoying decisions!
3. They are good at solving problems discreetly:
If you’ve got an embarrassing problem that you’d really rather keep secret, ask your Libra friend for help.
Although they aren’t good at making up their minds when it comes to making their own decisions, they are great at helping their friends gain a new perspective on an awkward situation.
A Libra won’t laugh at you or judge you.
Instead, they’ll help you work through your options, weighing up the pros and cons of each.
They have mastered the art of separating facts from feelings, and won’t rush you into any particular course of action.
4. They are generous:
For a Libra, it really is better to give than it is to receive.
You can expect your Libra friend to give you thoughtful gifts, to pick up the tab at the bar, and give freely of their time when you are going through a rough patch.
Even if they don’t earn much money, they will still go out of their way to treat their friends well.
Be sure to thank them for their generosity, or they may start to feel as though you are taking advantage of them.
5. They are creative:
Whether it’s putting together a great outfit or helping you decorate your apartment, you can rely on a Libra’s aesthetic judgment and good taste.
They should be first on your list if you want to take a trip to an art gallery, and they will be first to accompany you to a life drawing class.
Their fashion sense is legendary.
If you need help deciphering a dress code or choosing a flattering outfit for a big event, they should be your first port of call.
It’s likely they know how to play a musical instrument, draw to a high standard, ice beautiful cupcakes, or even sew their own clothes.
Librans are attractive, charming, and know how to make others feel at ease.
They are not vain, but they certainly like to look good at all times – and it pays off.
They like to make friends with lots of different types of people, and they are open-minded when it comes to trying new hobbies.
It can take a while – sometimes months – to build a close rapport with a Libra.
This isn’t because they are cold or unfriendly.
On the contrary, Libras make wonderful, loyal friends. However, intense people make them feel uncomfortable.
They prefer to take their time in getting to know a new acquaintance.
If you bombard them with questions or tell them your life story within an hour of meeting them, they’ll feel the urge to run away.
Respect their need to take it slow, and you may well have a new best friend.
