Dating a Leo Man
Leos love being the center of attention, the way Milhouse loves capri pants. Everything’s coming up Leo! Leos hustle and they’re not afraid of anyone getting in their way. You should be afraid of getting in a Leo’s way. The Leo believes that everything pretty much revolves around them, which can make dating a Leo very difficult.
When on a date with the Leo, be sure to compliment them on their creative pursuits – and being a Leo, they will likely have many creative pursuits. Leos don’t do just one thing. There’s always something on the side. They’re a poet/ad man. An actor/designer. If you really want to piss off a Leo, wait for them to bring up their big creative project, nod and say, “Yeah, I saw the Kickstarter” and nothing else.
How to Dating a Leo Man
Leos love beginnings, but they have a hard time following through. You’ll have a great, romantic date with a Leo, and never hear from them again. Leos are romantics at heart but without the follow-through. And every Leo male who is reading this right now thinks I wrote it about them. And I know they’re reading it because it had “Leo” in the title. They can’t help it.
On your date, be sure to give your Leo lots of attention and admiration, but try to find the right balance between showering them with praise and sticking your head so far up their ass you could wear them as a hat. If you really want to keep this Leo, you’ve got to remain grounded. It’s like holding a balloon – you’re planting firmly on the ground, while the Leo is floating around in the sky. Hold tight.
How to know if a Leo man loves you?
Leo’s generally aren’t very subtle when in love. They want the world to know about it, and that includes showing and telling you! If you happen to have a more reserved Leo then possessiveness and jealousy is the second most reliable indicator. Flirt a little with other men in front of him and see how he reacts.
Once You Are Dating
Before jumping into a relationship with a Leo man, be prepared. You will never find your Leo lover alone and he will always be surrounded by friends. He is the center of attention wherever he goes and loves the limelight. He is a social animal who loves being friends with as many people as he can. Remember, he is the king and a king has many followers. Play around the same note and be graceful around his friends. Never criticize a lion in front of his friends, he may shut you out completely. You need to build relationships and let him be the front-runner. But, this does not mean you fade away into darkness. You are his partner and need to play the role of a supporting actor. Support his ego and the man is yours.
Most men are visually-oriented, and Leo’s doubly so. That’s why it pays to take time to do up your hair and wear your most flattering outfit. Go ahead and bring out the glamour reserved for special nights, even if you’re going to the neighborhood Chinese place. The overall effect is key, and how confident you are with your own "presentation." He’s enamored with a Look, as the natural expression of who you are. So it’s all about exaggerating the unique way you shine, and being confident about who you are.
Leo men are show-oriented, that’s just all there is to it. He’s drawn to those that make him look good. This can be a fun social game, as the pair of you hit the town. He wants to show you off, and bask in the glory of having "caught" you. In the beginning, you might feel like the Queen to his King, showered with goodies and fun times. He’s hot headed and all-man, who is energizing to be around. He’s a romantic, passionate, warm-hearted, and it could be the time of your life... while it lasts.
Relationships As a Couple
You’ll have to work hard to keep his interest, for he has many friends and family who take up his time. Get creative with some date ideas of your own, such as competitive sports or salsa dancing, and he’ll appreciate your imagination and zest for life.
The Leo male is bigger than life itself and it takes a strong woman to stalk the plains with him. Don’t always let him win in games or arguments, even though he’ll want to, because he’ll lose all respect for you. He appreciates a woman who speaks her mind, so be open and honest about your thoughts and feelings. He can handle a lot and will take on anything you need to make life easier. Love compatibility with Leo men can be difficult at times. Just don’t get in the way of his career path, for he is driven and ambitious and is always looking for ways to gain power. Men of this astrology sign do not think twice about breaking up.
