You’ll often see signs a Libra man is trying to hide his feelings and may wonder if he’s not into you.
A Libra man’s distant behavior doesn’t always mean he doesn’t care. When he’s not interested in you, he’ll show specific signs.
If you’re seeing signs a Libra man has lost interest, don’t chase a Libra man. Instead, look for signs that will clearly show you if he’s interested.
When a Libra man is not interested in you, he will avoid you for the long term or do the bare minimum. He’ll act completely different toward you.
If you’re wondering what to do when a Libra man pulls away, your best bet is to give him space. After a few days, you can use subtle hints to entice him back.
1. He Criticizes You
Libra men are the most easygoing, friendly men you’ll ever meet. Yet when a Libra man is not interested in you, he’ll try to make it clear. He doesn’t want to be the “bad guy” who tells you outright.
Instead, he’ll drop hints to try to deter your pursuit or even chase you away. One of the ways a Libra man does this is by suddenly criticizing you. He’ll criticize what you say, think and do.
If a Libra man manages to find fault with everything you do, it’s out of character for him. He normally will try to only see the best in everyone else. When he changes course and becomes critical, he’s pushing you away.
He’s trying to discourage you from having feelings for him. A Libra man who does this secretly hopes that you will get the hint. He doesn’t want to make it more obvious he’s not interested. Chances are, even criticizing you makes him feel bad.
2. He Makes Contrarian Arguments
In addition to finding petty things to criticize about you, a Libra man who is not interested in you will find contrarian arguments for everything. On a good day he loves to debate and discuss different views.
But when he’s trying to show you that he’s not into you, a Libra man will go out of his way to turn everything into an excuse to bicker with you. He’ll argue with everything you say.
If you try to talk him out of it, it will become exhausting for you. That’s part of the point. A libra man is trying to wear you out to the point where you’ll give up and leave him alone.
He’ll act this way in the most benign discussions. You’ll start to feel like every word you say leads to an argument. This is intentional. He’s trying to put more pressure on you to not communicate with him.
3. He Picks Fights with You
A Libra man’s emotional distance is one of his notable features. Yet when he’s actively trying to show you that he’s not interested, he’ll not only be distant, he’ll pick fights with you.
He’ll find reasons to complain and nag you about different things. When he’s in love, he can be jealous. But when he’s not interested, he may accuse you of flirting or cheating just to have a reason to push you away while saving face.
Libra men will usually go ten steps out of their way to avoid conflict and drama. Yet if a Libra man isn’t interested in you, and he feels like his subtle attempts to show you aren’t working, he’ll take things up a notch.
He’ll do this by going out of his way to create conflict and disharmony. He’ll find things to fight over. He doesn’t like to do this, so his hope is that you’ll tire of it quickly and leave him alone.
4. He Avoids Eye Contact
If you’re wondering how to know if a Libra man is playing you, he may show similar signs as a disinterested Libra man. If a Libra man is playing you, he’ll reach out only when he wants something.
Yet if he is not interested in a relationship of any kind, he’ll do his best to avoid you. If he can’t avoid you completely, such as in a situation where you work together for example, he’ll avoid eye contact.
A Libra man who is not interested in you will try to not have any connection whatsoever. This includes the momentary connection that comes through eye contact. He’ll look away or his eyes will dart around the room.
He may suddenly find reasons to break eye contact. When he averts his gaze a few times at first, he may just be shy. If he avoids eye contact and turns away when he sees you coming, he’s not interested in you.
5. He Doesn’t Communicate with You
When a Libra man goes quiet, it could mean he just needs space to recharge. It can also mean he’s not interested in you. If you violate no contact rules with a Libra man, he may just ignore you.
Libra men are social and chatty and will usually never pass up a chance to have an interesting conversation with someone they like. Romantic or platonic relationships are sources of invigoration and inspiration to Libra men.
When he is not communicating with you for more than a few days, it means he’s not just suddenly busy. He’s also not likely just catching up with other friends. If he doesn’t resume communication with you after a short break, he’s not interested.
Libra men don’t like to be rude and prefer not to ignore people. Yet if he feels the gentle signals that he’s given you that he’s not interested haven’t worked, he will disconnect altogether.
If you’re wondering what to do when a Libra man ignores you, your best bet is to let him be. In a few days he’ll either resurface or he won’t. If he doesn’t come around on his own, it’s a sign he is not interested in a relationship.
6. He Tells His Friends He Doesn’t Like You
A Libra man, distant as he may be, can look to his friends to do the “dirty work” in the relationship for him. That is, he may tell his friends what he should tell you directly. That he’s just not interested.
He does this on purpose because he is counting on his friends to relay the message so that he doesn’t have to face you. He doesn’t want to deal with your feelings. He may drop hints and hope they get the message to you.
If his friends indicate he’s not interested or that he’s seeing someone else, take their word for it. You can also check with his friends to nonchalantly ask about his interest in you if he’s giving you mixed signals.
7. He Ignores You
When a Libra man cuts you off altogether, he’s trying to give you the message that he’s not interested in you. If he avoids communication and that doesn’t work, he’ll just ignore you.
You may continue to reach out to him, but he won’t respond. After a while you’ll see he is not even checking his messages anymore. When this happens, it’s best to leave him alone.
If there is hope for the relationship in the future, it won’t be because you continued to pursue him. Rather it will be because he had the time to himself to discover how much he misses you.
8. He Won’t Stand Up for You
A key aspect of a Libra man’s personality is his desire to create justice and balance. He avoids drama, but he’ll stand up for the underdog. If he thinks someone is being treated poorly, he’ll defend them.
The one exception is if he is not interested in a relationship with you and is trying to make that clear. If a Libra man sees you embroiled in a conflict or being treated unfairly and leaves you to fend for yourself, he’s not interested in you.
This is a clear sign he is not willing to put any energy into a relationship with you. Also, it is a sign that he doesn’t want to unintentionally make you believe he has an interest in you when he does not.
9. He Doesn’t Support Your Dreams
When a Libra man truly sees himself as your partner and your peer, he will take his role seriously. One way he does this is by showing full support of even your most lofty and idealistic dreams.
But be on the lookout for how he reacts when you share your dreams with him. A Libra man who acts indifferent, or worse, who tries to tell your goals are impractical, is showing he is not interested in you.
Libra men are seldom practical, so using this as an excuse to downplay your goals shows a lack of interest in you. If this were not the case, he would be your biggest supporter, encouraging you to pursue your aspirations.
10. He Acts Unkind
This is one of the most dramatic and clear indications a Libra man is not interested in you. Libra men are generally kind to everyone. Even if they don’t like the person much.
Yet if he is trying to make it clear that he’s not interested in you, and if everything else he’s tried hasn’t discouraged you from pursuing him, he may start to act unkind or rude. He doesn’t like doing this.
A Libra man will come to associate you with even more negative emotions because he will feel you are giving him no choice but to act in a way that is out of character for him. This is his last-ditch effort to show you he’s not interested.
If a Libra man acts unkind or rude to you, it’s a sign he’s trying to make it as clear as possible that he is not interested. It is best to let his actions speak for themselves and leave him alone.
