When it comes to love and commitment, everyone is looking for the same thing, right? Actually, that isn’t entirely true. Aside from the fact that we all have individual needs, our dreams and desires can change from one phase of life to the next. While some of us seek enduring love, others want something a little less binding, and perhaps a little more temporary. Some people seek the fun and spontaneity of dating, while others can hear wedding bells ringing in their ears from the very first “hello.” How does your Zodiac sign feel about long-term, committed love? How about your sweetheart’s sign, or that cutie you’re crushing on? If you’re hoping for lasting love, it helps to know whether your partner is likely to be open to a continually deepening and intimate bond. And if you’re looking for something a little more casual, it’s also handy to know which signs tend to be more open to spontaneous, possibly shorter-term connections. Read on to learn more about your Sun sign’s natural approach to intimacy and commitment in love.
Not only is Libra ruled by Venus, the planet of love, it is also the sign of Partnership, which really says it all. Perhaps more than any other Zodiac sign, Libra is in love with love — a true romantic at heart who operates best when happily coupled. Libra is also a natural diplomat, which can be a great benefit in a relationship: This sign works to keep the peace and find creative ways to compromise when it seems as if there’s just no common ground. There is also a downside to this quality, however; sometimes Libra will remain in a romantic affair that isn’t working because it’s difficult to declare their needs or set firm boundaries. Libra might also stay in a less-than-optimal relationship out of a simple fear of loneliness, which is unfounded; this gregarious, stylish sign almost always has plenty of admirers and a full social calendar. Still, while Libra may come across as a social butterfly, this sign craves the comfort and stability of a committed and harmonious love affair.
