When I started dating a Leo, I was immediately drawn to his gregarious personality and outrageous sense of humor. At the time, I had no idea that these were telltale Leo traits. Honestly, I never really got into the whole astrology thing until a friend pointed out that my guy was “such a Leo.” If you are dating a Leo, see how many of the following traits can be used to describe him.
1. Life of the Party
One of the telltale traits of a Leo is his desire to be the life of the party. A Leo man never shies away from the limelight and is a natural born storyteller. If you start dating a guy who is gregarious, animated and outgoing, you might just be dating a Leo. Hanging out with a Leo can be great fun, unless you find yourself fighting for the spotlight. If you like to be the center of attention, dating a Leo can be exhausting.
Are you looking to be swept off your feet? If you seek someone who is generous and uninhibited in the boudoir, find yourself a Leo. Leo men refuse to live life without pleasure, in every sense of the word. Leos love to fall in love. If you are just looking for a guy who will take you out for the occasional dinner and a movie, dating a Leo may not work.
Don’t be surprised if your Leo gets jealous at the smallest things. Since Leos tend to be possessive of anything they perceive as theirs, they are prone to jealousy. Receiving attention from another guy won’t go over well with your Leo. He probably has a very fragile ego, so his feelings get hurt easily. However, if you want to make your guy jealous, you should have no problem if he’s a Leo.
If your guy rushes through tasks just to get them done quickly, he might be a Leo. By nature, Leos are ambitious and they want things done yesterday. You’ll find that most Leos are really dependable because they always finish what they start. Sometimes their impatience causes them to rush through projects too quickly, though. Your Leo guy is probably super motivated, but getting him to slow down will be a challenge.
If you’re dating a Leo, you’ve probably already noticed that he is always right. Trying to change a stubborn Leo’s mind is like pulling teeth. Often, the best way to get him to budge is by subtly stroking his ego. No matter how loud you may yell, your Leo will not hear you once he has his mind made up. He will respond much better with gentle persuasion.
The Leo temper is unmistakable. It's okay because his bark is much worse than his bite. Hopefully you don’t also have a flaring temper because the two of you will likely butt heads. Although he’s really just an old softie at heart, you’ll need to tolerate the occasional outburst when you date a Leo. If you are the type who avoids confrontation at all costs, it can definitely be helpful having a Leo on your side.
Leos can be irresistibly charming at times. If you’re dating a Leo, he probably knows how to butter you up to get his way. It can be tough saying no when your Leo turns on the charm and wit. His air of self-confidence also makes him that much more charming. Although it’s generally harmless, Leos tend to be natural flirts. Your best bet is to laugh it off when you see him turn on the charm with others.
Leos definitely keep things interesting in the relationship. Have you ever dated a Leo? If so, what traits did your guy have that were unmistakably Leo?
