Leo man personality traits and characteristics

Leo is a dramatic sign with some fundamental contrasts. Overall they're straightforward and very predictable people.

Leo the lion

On the surface Leos are one of the most confident and aggressive signs. Fearless, charismatic and powerful. They're some of the optimists and leaders of the Zodiac, always seeing the good over the bad, and often wanting to take charge and be noticed. They have a flair for the dramatic and often enjoy being the center of attention.

Gaining the respect and admiration of others is what makes the Leo man tick, and he has the perfect toolset to do it: Dramatic, warm hearted, outgoing, passionate and impulsive. Most feel the powerful presence of a Leo man almost immediately.

Leo the pussycat

Although often appearing supremely confident on the outside, most Leos are inwardly sensitive and their feelings are easily hurt. In all things they need to feel appreciated and needed, especially by loved ones.

This combination of traits has a very specific implication for relationships. If ignored or criticized Leo's tend to be aggressive and confrontational, while if treated with respect or asked for help they tend to be very warm and generous. Understand this subtle difference and you will have your lion on a leash.

To give a specific example, if you say to a Leo "you never bring me flowers!" then it will be taken as a criticism and the response is usually going to be negative. If instead you say "I really wish I had some flowers. They make me so happy!" then you'll find your Leo is eager to provide them. Few signs are so predictable or consistent. Leos want to please you, their ego's just rarely allow them to be told to do it.

Other Leo traits

Affectionate, warm and cheerful people, Leos can be counted on to bring sunshine into other people's lives. Dignified, playful, ambitious and loyal, they're known for being exceptionally generous.

On the negative side, they can be quite egotistical, demanding, intolerant, domineering, lazy and stubborn. They can have a very high self esteem and be dissatisfied with performing any work which they feel is beneath them. They tend to put loved ones on a pedestal and have unreasonably high expectations for them, and hence are easily disappointed.

Many Leo men like to spend money on physical things which can be noticed. Flashy clothes, expensive cars, a large house etc. Generally if someone isn't going to be jealous of it then he won't buy it. Mean and cruel acts are generally beneath them, however they can be very aggressive, and few other signs can match their wrath when provoked. They forgive easily however, and generally don't hold a grudge.

Leo man questions

What are Leo men like in bed?

Leo's generally have a strong sex drive, and together with their high charisma this can lead to having many lovers until they find the right one and settle down. As in all things, Leos like to be dramatic, and like to tease and play games. They're adventurous lovers, and as a rule the more outrageous the activity the better, as long as there's some element of competition or playfulness. Tease, tease, and tease some more!

Are Leo men kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Leo men are amongst the more kinky, yes.

What's it like dating a Leo man?

Emotional, romantic and sensitive lovers, Leos are warm hearted and sincere, and make very loyal and stable partners, and very devoted parents. Very passionate by nature, they can equally become possessive and jealous if they don't feel secure.

Highly dramatic, they love to show off, which includes a taste for extravagant lifestyles. This is the sign most likely to have champagne, roses and satin sheets in their bedroom. Fun and romantic, they dislike routine, and are adventurous lovers, though they can be particularly stubborn. A skillful partner soon learns that to be a 'good idea' something should be 'his idea'!

How loyal are Leo men?

When content with a partner Leo men are exceptionally loyal. They do however like to feel needed and appreciated, and if neglected for too long they will stray just like most other signs. Conversely if you show you love them regularly and make them feel needed they are amongst the most loyal signs.

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. For a full description of how a Leo man acts when in love please see our article on Leo in love

How to understand your Leo man

Your Leo will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.

With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see our article on astrology compatibility readings.

Who are some famous Leo men celebrities?

We have a list of the top 400 most famous Leo celebrities and historical figures.

How to keep a Leo man?

The Leo man likes someone whom he can be proud of and show off! Whether it's for your good looks, sophisticated intellect, sense of humor, other traits, or just because you think he's fantastic. If you can be dramatic so much the better.

How to make a Leo man fall in love with you?

This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Leo men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

How to know if your Leo man is your soulmate?

Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.

Leo man long distance and online relationships

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Leo men cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Leo men do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:

Leo man personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

Leo man gifts

We have a dedicated section for Leo man gifts with examples of the types of gifts which Leo men enjoy within various categories from naughty to practical, including reader submitted suggestions.

Leo man dating advice

No advice will ever apply to every Leo man as they are all unique in various ways. I specialize in offering tailored advice based on your unique personality and his together, as one without the other isn't nearly as useful. My astrology readings solve real relationship problems for real people every day. For more information please see the article on relationship advice.

How compatible are you with your Leo man?

This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information - everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.

We specialize in providing accurate and affordable astrology compatibility readings delivered promptly via email. This reading explores everything about your relationship, including a detailed analysis of your personality and your partner's personality. We examine areas ranging from sexual attraction to problem solving. Each topic has clear explanations, scores and comparisons to averages. The relevant astrological charts are included, together with notes of how the information is derived from them.

Average size is 100 pages. The reading is $27 and includes an unconditional guarantee, free email questions and free revision if you later find a more accurate birth time for you or your partner.

All the analysis is based off of the date, time and location of birth for you and your partner. Ideally the times should be as accurate as possible, but we can work with the best information you have.

Below is a questionnaire which shows the information we will need:

Your first name
