You’re in your mid-twenties, have two and a half relationships under your belt, and you have a pretty good idea of what you’re looking for in a relationship. Unlike your first partner, who was so fixed in their ways, you’re eager to date someone who is cooperative and can go with the flow.
Empathy is important to you, and after dating someone who would throw popcorn at the movie screen whenever they didn’t like what was happening, it would be nice to meet someone who is actually aware of how their words impact other people and cares about making a positive effort.
And then there was your second partner, who was beyond confrontational; they were guarded, unsure, and skeptical, often switching between jealousy and criticism. Yeah, overall, you just want to date someone nice.
So who are you? The Libra or the Pisces? Well, truth be told, this description could pertain to either of you because when it comes to what you’re searching for in friendship or in love, it’s pretty much the same thing. And when you two meet, platonic or not, you’re pretty certain you’ve found the one. You’re both kind. It’s easy to spend time with one another. You like doing similar things. Sounds like a match made in heaven, right?
Not so fast, my friends, because if there’s one thing I can tell you from my thirty-three years of life on this earth, it’s this. Just because a friend shares your interests and is fun to hang out with doesn’t mean they won’t bad-talk you behind their back.
And when it comes to love, specifically everything looking great on paper, well, let’s be honest; We all lie on our resume, and if you’re too young to know that, then don’t tell your mom I said so.
You’re an air sign, Libra, which makes you a floater in life. You can float between different groups of people, you hover over choices when it comes to settling with a certain profession, and you always make sure to balance out the pros and cons.
Your symbol, the scales, is representative of this need for you to consider all your options before you decide which way to go, even though you’ll be questioning if you made the right choice.
Still, as a cardinal sign, you enjoy taking the initiative in work, friendships, and relationships, and you’ll take the lead, even if you later question if you made the right choice.
You avoid conflict, but you’re a social person, and with the number of friends you have, it’s inevitable that disagreements will happen.
You’ll often stay out of it unless you’re dragged into the middle of it, and then you won’t back down because if there’s one thing you detest, it is injustice of any kind.
As a water sign, Pisces, you go with the flow of whatever comes your way.
This trait is even further enhanced with the mutable aspect of your sign, which makes you adaptable and more than willing to play whatever tune rings nearest you–especially if it means you’ll avoid conflict in the process.
You’re almost too compassionate and empathetic for your own good, and your people-pleasing nature has become a problem for you more than once in your life.
Building boundaries with the people in your life’s an everyday struggle, one you still practice even when you’ve learned how to do it.
For others, it comes naturally, but you, Pisces, have had to learn the hard way that there is a difference between hurting someone’s feelings and saying ‘no’ just because you’re not in the mood to go to a rock concert on a Tuesday night. Do you even like rock music?
Maybe it’s time to question your hobbies too, Pisces. Like your symbol, two attached fish, you have a tendency to adapt almost too well to the people around you, and your identity goes beyond just being easy to spend time with.
You have strong intuition, though, and if you listen to your gut, you’ll know the right direction to take.
Libra and Pisces in Friendship
Libra, as a cardinal sign, you’re born at the beginning of the season–in this case, fall–and this is indicative of your ability and penchant to take the initiative when it comes to friendships. You won’t hesitate to reach out to your friends, and you’ll often be one to suggest things to do, even if you have a tendency to offer five different options with no particular preference.
As a mutable sign, Pisces, you’re diplomatic and inclined to mediate disagreements between friends. As a people pleaser, you thrive on helping others, but because you often have difficulty committing to decisions, you can be perceived as inconsistent and unreliable.
But there is where your Libra friend helps you out. When your Libra friends offer ideas, you’re more than happy to go with the flow and prefer it over making decisions that might upset others.
Friend Date: Mani/Pedi or Streaking on the Beach at Midnight?
You two share a mutual interest in uplifting your friends, so when it comes to group hangouts, you Libra are most likely to choose something that involves everyone and makes everyone feel included.
Pisces, you’re more than happy to ride in the backseat on these adventures and take whatever comes your way.
Libra, you’re more likely to jump from one activity to the other, and although you will often take the initiative in coming up with ideas if you’re pressed to decide on one solid choice of things to do, you will often freeze up, unsure on which path to take.
Pisces can relate to this and equally hates being on the spot. Pisces, you are more likely to follow in the steps of your friend’s choices. When it’s just the two of you spending time together–with no third party to make the final decision–your mutual indecisiveness can put unnecessary pressure on your friendship.
Friend-Fection: Keep It on the Dl or Text ‘Love Ya Biatch?’
Although you both share similar values in your friendship, you do have differences that are bound to create some bumps in your friendship.
Your mutual indecisiveness will manifest arguments as you, Libra, usually lean on your friends to make the final decision, and you Pisces, prefer to just go along with whatever others want to do.
Because you both avoid confrontation like the plague, having direct conversations about issues can overwhelm the otherwise tranquil nature of your friendship.
As a result, if you don’t learn to talk about things, you’ll both shut down, and Libra, you’ll appear manipulative to your sensitive Pisces friend, while Pisces, you’ll appear like a push-over who just says whatever someone wants to hear to move on.
Dating Advice: Send His Name or Send His Social?
You both love to love, but that doesn’t mean you enjoy dating.
As natural nurturers, you thrive in relationships and bring joy to other people, and because you both assume the best in people, you will often fall for complete strangers assuming they’re your soulmate. You won’t hold back in expressing your newfound feelings to your friends.
Most of them will warn you to take it slow, but if you confide in each other, you’ll discover your opinion mirrored in the other: love is fun, might as well take the chance.
Your mutual upbeat nature is what people love about both of you, but also something the harder, more abrasive Zodiac signs will pity about you when things don’t work out.
Libra and Pisces in Love
Just like in your friendship, your similar communication style is what will ultimately be the death of a long-term relationship. You both detest conflict to the point where you’d rather shut down and keep your complaints to yourself to avoid having disagreements.
This is bound to create misunderstandings and resentments that, when left unaddressed, will gradually fester until one day you’ll open your eyes and the person you thought you loved is now someone you’re not even sure you like.
The First Date: Roses or KFC?
You two love new experiences, and it’s one of the first things that will draw you together. You’ll take one look at your similarities and think you’ve found the one.
Libra, always searching for a balance, will enjoy being with someone like Pisces, who doesn’t fight back on what you, Libra, want to do.
But don’t forget, we always put out the best of ourselves when we first meet someone, and you two, mutual people pleasers, will accentuate this quality of yours. It will work for a while. But eventually, your differences will be impossible to avoid.
At your core, Libra, you crave stability, while you, Pisces, are more inclined to search for spontaneity. Once you realize that people’s personalities are nuanced and extend past a written list, you’ll discover that maybe you don’t get along as great as you thought you did.
Love Language Do’s and Don’ts: A Dealbreaker?
You two barely know what you’re going to have for breakfast each day; there’s no way you can concretely identify your preferred love language on a consistent basis.
Sure, there may be some you prefer over others, but this will change based on the day. And that’s where the real problems in your relationship will emerge.
Communication is what this relationship needs to thrive, and reassurance through words of affirmation is the one love language you both suck at. And because of the lack of your ability to discuss your needs, one day, Libra might offer Pisces physical touch and, the next day, quality time when all Pisces wanted was a Valentine’s Day gift.
Your fights will be confusing at best and, at worst, will annoy your mutual friends, who don’t understand why you two can’t just talk about things. And that’s where the real issue lies. Your mutual desire to please others will backfire when you forget how to please yourself and communicate your own needs.
Sexy Time: Slow and Steady or Chompin’ at the Bit?
Libra, you get bored quickly in the bedroom and need things to be switched up on a regular basis to keep things exciting.
Pisces, on the other hand, you’re more sensual, and you’ll crave for your partner to take the initiative, while Libra, you prefer switching up who takes the lead.
When your relationship is just starting out, it’s more likely Libra will be eager to make that move in the beginning, but it will probably be too soon for Pisces, who needs to feel comfortable before they can open up like that with someone.
However, both of your selfless natures will offer a mutual pleasure that will keep you two connected when everything else in your relationship has fallen apart.
As friends, there’s potential for this person to be your long-term bestie, as long as you both learn how to speak up and make decisions and don’t hold it against the other if you can’t.
This mutual indecisiveness and lack of communication will ultimately be what destroys your relationship. Even after you break up, you’ll never hate this person, but chances are you’ll both stay way longer than you should just because you don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings.
