Leo Man: Good Traits, Bad Traits, Love and Sex

Astrology can tell you a lot about a person. For instance, Leo men are courageous, independent, and fiercely loyal. They would do anything for a family or friend in need. Here is everything you need to know about a Leo man before committing to someone with a Leo sun sign:

Leo Man Personality Traits

Leo men are represented by a lion, which is why they are natural leaders. They don’t want to take orders. They would rather give the orders. Leos want to take charge of their relationships and their careers. This sign doesn’t get along with authority figures because they want to be the alpha. They butt heads with anyone who tries to take their power away from them.

Leo men are strong and fearless. Like other fire signs, they aren’t scared of failure or rejection. Leos understand they need to put hard work into their passions if they want to see results. They never back down from a challenge. However, they grow attached to their achievements. If something they worked hard for is taken away from them, they cannot handle it.

Leo Man Bad Traits

Leo men are stubborn as mules. They assume they’re right because they have such high confidence. However, they can border on cocky at times. This can rub others the wrong way because Leos refuse to listen to anyone else’s thoughts and opinions. They don’t want to compromise because they know the other person is wrong. A Leo man thinks they’re superior to everyone else.

Leo men are arrogant and self-centered. Even when they fall in love, they view themselves as the center of the universe. Instead of thinking through the way their actions will affect others, they are impulsive. Their main concern is themselves. They care about their own feelings but disregard the feelings of everyone around them. Although they treat their loved ones with respect, they might disrespect people who are beneath them. Overall, a Leo man’s top priority is himself.

Leo Man Good Traits

Leo men are creative and hardworking. Whenever they set a goal for themselves, they put in one-hundred percent of their effort. They never give up, no matter how many obstacles they face. This sign is energetic and excitable. When they’re doing something they love, their energy is contagious. They make excellent bosses and workers because they never stop trying.

Leo men are also charismatic and optimistic. They’re great friends because they will always cheer you on from the sidelines. When you want to give up, a Leo man will deliver a convincing pep talk. Leos are supportive of the people they care about the most. They want everyone around them to reach their full potential. Leos have high expectations for others, as well as themselves.

Leo Man in Love

Leo men have extremely high expectations. In relationships, they want to be spoiled rotten. If their partner isn’t giving them constant attention, they will grow restless. A Leo man wants to be drowned in compliments and showered with presents. They aren’t going to feel satisfied unless their partner continuously does romantic acts. If they feel like a second choice, then they will find someone who treats them like a priority.

A Leo man won’t handle criticism well. If there’s a problem in the relationship, solving it could take some time. After all, Leos are too stubborn to admit they’re wrong and too stubborn to apologize. They won’t want to look at their flaws and fix them. Leos would rather place the blame on someone else because they believe they are perfect just the way they are.

Leo Man in Sex

Leos love sex, because they get to be the center of attention. They love being complimented on their bodies because they put plenty of effort into their appearances. This sign also loves admiring beautiful things. Although a Leo man prefers sex with someone they’re dating, they’re open to flings with sexy strangers. As long as the other person meets their standards, they won’t turn down the chance to have fun.

Leos are a fire sign, so they’re adventurous and open-minded in the bedroom. They’re comfortable with public sex and role-playing. In fact, a Leo man would rather try something spontaneous and fun than repeat the same moves every time. Leos are risk-takers. They’re happiest when they’re trying new things and testing the limits of what they can get away with doing.

Dating a Leo Man

Leo men aren’t going to play mind games with you. They know what they want, and they aren’t shy about admitting it. Leos will tell you whether they’re attracted to you. They will admit when they want a relationship with you. You’ll never have to guess what’s on their mind. They don’t keep quiet about their emotions. If anything, they’re too loud.

Unfortunately, this sign has a hard time letting go. Leos might stay in the wrong relationship for longer than they should because they don’t believe in quitting. Once they commit to someone, they will put effort into staying together. They would rather solve whatever problems arise than end the relationship. A Leo man hates admitting they were wrong about their partner.

Trust With a Leo Man

Leo men are jealous and possessive. They want constant attention, so they will get angry if you pay attention to someone else. If they start to feel like a second choice, then they will end the relationship. A Leo man needs to feel admired at all times. He needs to know you’re attracted to him and only want to sleep with him. If he starts to doubt you, you’ve already lost him.

Leo men are extremely loyal. They would never cheat on their partner or abandon them out of the blue. Leos don’t believe in lying because they’re straightforward and honest. However, they are huge flirts. They’re going to joke around with others and give out plenty of compliments. Leos are hypocrites because if their partner did the same thing, they would never forgive them.

Understanding a Leo Man

You won’t have to wonder what a Leo man is thinking. If they’re angry, they’re going to lash out at you. And if they’re happy, they’re going to brag to you. Leos aren’t subtle when it comes to their emotions. They always have a story to tell. The best thing about this sign is that what you see is what you get. They never pretend to make others happy. They’re always straightforward and honest.

The main thing you need to understand about Leos is their need for attention. They don’t want to stay home on weekends. They want to go out on the town where everyone can see them. Attention from their partner isn’t enough for them. They need attention from strangers as well. When they feel invisible, they start to get restless and insecure.

Leo Man Likes and Dislikes

Leos are one of the most dramatic signs in the zodiac. That’s why they love going to the theater and watching performances. They might even get up on stage and act. After all, there’s nothing Leos love more than the spotlight. They want everyone in the room to be looking at them. Being ignored is their greatest fear in life.

Leos cannot stand being pushed to the background. When they’re being ignored, their fire will come out. They aren’t going to remain in a relationship where they’re neglected. Leos need constant attention, or they’re going to feel like their needs aren’t being met. If you want to keep a Leo around, you need to set aside time to focus on them.

Leo Man Behavior

Leos are optimists. Their confidence convinces them that everything is going to work out okay in the end. Even when they face an obstacle, they know they can overcome it. Leos believe they are destined for greatness. That’s why their expectations are so high. They refuse to settle for less than the absolute best.

Whether they’re male or female, Leos are also surprisingly funny. If you make friends with them, they will crack you up with their stories. After all, they are performers. They know how to tell a story. This is why plenty of Leos become actors, writers, and singers. Their creativity is one of the most beautiful things about them.
