Leo relationships

Partners of different zodiac signs bring out slightly different facets of the Leo personality. Some elements however are fairly common to all Leo relationships.

Common features of Leo relationships

Extremely forward and self assured Leos can come across as aggressive or impatient when starting relationships. The positive in this is that there are no head games played by this Lion, what you see is what you get, and Leos tell you exactly what they want and like.

This honesty is the key to building the foundation of love for Leos. Though sometimes known for jealousy and possessiveness, this is primarily due to any insecurity Leos feel at the hands of their partner. But, if they feel secure in your loyalty and devotion they will reciprocate. The key with Leo relationships is honesty, they tend to value this trait very much.

Although many times Leos have been accused of being ego maniacs, this is due to their high self esteem which is a beacon of attractiveness. Their self confidence is very attractive to most around them. This is not a 'wishy washy' sign. They know their mind and aren't shy about going after what they want and need.

Loyalty in Leo relationships

Once in love or committed, Leos are stubbornly loyal and will do anything to protect and encourage their beloved. The negative of this is that they are less likely to walk away when a situation turns toxic, thinking it beneath them to just "quit" while leaving themselves open to being manipulated and used.

Despite all this bold strength, Leos are very sensitive and need nurturing to truly blossom. When Leos feel their love and loyalty is reciprocated, that they are safe from being used and betrayed, that is when the beautiful part begins. Leos then will blossom and share themselves openly with their partner. They then turn to showering their partner with romantic attentions that make them very hard to forget.

Day to day Leo relationships

A Leo in love is usually very generous with loved ones. They enjoy the beauty around them and will appreciate the beauty you bring to their lives. They will definitely notice any effort you put forth for their benefit, be it small tokens you bring them or even simply making that extra effort to look nice. They see the beauty of creativity in the smallest detail.

Leos appreciate the best in life, so when planning anything special always remember 'quality' outdoes 'quantity' every day to a Leo.

Leo relationships in the long term

Leos love beautiful things and will see your relationship as a beautiful thing too. They see beauty in life and their excitement is contagious. Honest and hard working, Leos usually make wonderful life partners and wonderful parents.

Being true to your Leo and showering them with honest love and intentions will make your Leo bond to you for life. Once that trust is established, expect to be pampered by the Jungle's Royalty that is a Leo. Their dignity and integrity is front and center in the way they treat their partners. Once you've been loved by a Leo it is unlikely that you will ever forget the experience. This is a very hard sign to get over.
