Zodiac Sign Love Relationships: Leo, how the fixed fire sign is in love

The field guide for the zodiac’s only fixed fire sign.

Get ready: when loving a Leo, you’re cutting through a jungle full of Nevers.

Never cage or try to control a Leo, you will see their fixed feistiness come front and center. They’ll resist and resent forced enclosure because they’re independently owned and operated. Leo is no one’s property. You are theirs.

Never demand or expect Leo to be anyone but who they are, this will only result in icy irritation. Instead, try straightforward compliments. Honeyed words shiatzu the Leo ego, making the Lion warmer and more pleasant to be around. However, one must remember that it is what you do for a Lion that is much more important than what you promise with sweet words.

How to Love a Leo Man / Leo Woman

Simply telling your Leo man or Leo Woman you love him or her isn’t enough, you’ve got to show them, and then shower them with praise, affection and adoration. Make your proclamations of devotion as dramatic and impressive as Leo. Just make sure you earn their respect first and their love second. Leo will never exalt or even bother liking someone whom they don’t hold in high regard. And how, pray tell do you get this fixed fire sign’s respect?

Be a peer, not a peon. Though the royal Leo will try to rule over you, never kiss Leo’s ass unnecessarily. (You should, however, give them oodles of praise only when they deserve it; otherwise, they’ll think you’re just trying to flatter them.) Also, stand up for yourself.

Be authentic, with spine and individuality intact, and dare to defy the gravity of Leo’s greatness. Leo Men and Leo Women only share center stage with deserving players who equal them and exceed their lofty expectations for love. These vain and competitive cats want to be looked up to and beheld, but also secretly and regularly dared.

Do you think feisty Leo celebrities like Mae West, Madonna, JLo, JLaw, or Cheetara (from Thundercats) revels in the company of anyone who doesn’t deserve them or bring out the best in them?

Absolutely not!

What Leo is attracted to

If you are anything like Leo – brilliant, cocky, heroic, dominating, protective, and / or playful – you’re in luck, because Leos only love, trust, and become attracted to what they understand, i.e.: themselves.

As such, they habitually attract fellow fire signs as well as air signs, just as long as they have as much vim and vigor as Leo. Traits like diffidence and docility not only annoy, but also repel Leo, who is both independent and idealistic, and always prefers to hunt their prey. Chivalry is a big thing for Leo, and they love a mate who’ll be the Guinevere to their King Arthur or the Romeo to their Juliet, boldly proclaiming and/or fighting for their affections.

What you give a Lion, they will return in spades, as extravagance is this fire sign’s signature. So you want to pamper these passionate predators, because they will double over their affection and attention only when their need for attention and affection has been met and indulged.

Leos are loyal, and they demand the same type of unflinching fidelity from their partners. Leo Men and Leo Women are generous with their love and warmth, but under one condition: you must give them the laughs, heat, and recognition they give to you. Otherwise, they’ll feel like you’re taking all their sunny vibes for granted.

When it comes to the game of love, Leo’s got chops, and they aren’t afraid to flaunt or flash them to any and every person who seizes their attention. Showing off is automatic for the He- and She-Cats, as is self-centered and occasionally irrational behaviors.

Lions are half-wild flirts, with a G-spot ego, who show and act on their feelings ardently.

Once they want something, there is no stopping, censoring, or controlling them, as the gorgeous but natural-looking cats of this fire sign are blatant when it comes to desire. Their fierce approach to romance is endearing, but its takes hefty effort to sustain those feelings over a prolonged period of time. Though they expect a lot from their lovers and friends, testing and challenging their will power as well as yours, the right person can convert the Lion from self-loving showoff to a warm, demonstrative kitten (or neon tiger, as pictured).
