You may have never thought of an innocent Libra as someone who would ever become jealous, but the truth is that everyone feels that way at one point or another.
No matter how rational and balanced a person may be, jealousy could creep in at any moment.
However, there are ways to handle it appropriately and not let it take over your life. A Libra man will likely not give you a green-eyed monster very often; these signs tend to be more even-keeled than other people.
But if you find yourself in that situation, here’s what you need to know about how a Libra man acts when jealous:
He’ll try to understand your relationship with other people.
When a Libra man is jealous, he’ll be interested in figuring out exactly what is going on between you and the other person. He wants to understand the depth of your relationship and what makes it special.
A Libra man doesn’t like feeling like he was careless or unaware about something in his partner’s life, so he’ll want to get clued in. He’ll ask how you two met or what you two do together and he’ll try to understand the dynamics of your friendship.
You’re entitled to privacy and you don’t have to tell him everything, but being honest and sharing what you feel comfortable with will help him feel like he’s included.
He may start to question your motives.
Even though he’s asking you about your relationship, a Libra man may also be starting to question your motives for it. Specifically, he might be looking for evidence that you’re only spending time with him because you want something from him.
He might ask why you spend time with that certain person or question why the two of you are so close. If you’re honest with him from the beginning, he’ll be able to see that you’re not in it for something.
He’ll want to know when you started being close and what your relationship is for. If you’ve been out with his best friend for months and you haven’t told him, he’ll wonder what you’re hiding.
He might make snarky comments or put you on the defense.
Even if you’re totally honest with him, a jealous Libra man may try to put you on the defense. He may make snarky comments about the other person or even put you on the defense for spending time with them.
He doesn’t want to be rude, but jealousy may have him saying things he doesn’t mean. If he’s snarky or rude, he probably doesn’t realize what he’s doing.
A Libra can be snarky and sarcastic, but it’s usually playful and light. In the case of jealousy, it can get nasty. If he’s saying something that hurts, let him know.
He’ll demand more time and attention from you.
Since jealousy can make a Libra feel insecure and less confident, he may want to make up for it by giving you extra attention and time.
He’ll want to make you happy and show you that he’s invested in the relationship. If you two are in a relationship, he may start asking to do things with you more often.
He may also be more affectionate towards you and show you that you’re important to him. If you’re casually dating, he may want to make sure you’re spending time together more often.
He may be more persistent in asking you to go out with him or asking you to hang out more often.
Jealousy can be scary and painful, but it’s also normal. If you’re in a relationship with a Libra, it’s important to understand that he may feel jealous from time to time.
When he’s jealous, it’s important to be understanding. Although jealousy can be irrational, a Libra man’s feelings are real. He’s in love with you and wants what’s best for you. And every man is worried about being replaced.
