A Leo man’s taste in home furnishings tends towards the extravagant and unusual, but with a shabby insouciance that comes from the expectation that there will always be enough money to replace things eventually. Picture a deposed sultan’s desert tent, with worn and faded rugs, still glowing with a faded glory. Everything in his space is comfortable and aesthetic, but it can be a hodgepodge of eras and styles. He sees no issue with wildly mixing art and decor from a variety of cultures and time periods, and tends to be a collector who delights in creating a mish-mashed visual goulash on his walls and surfaces.
Much of what follows is based on hours of research, coupled with interviews that I’ve personally conducted with Leo guys. While you may read about this sign elsewhere, much of what you’ll see is not based on astronomy, astrology or ancient spiritual teachings.
Leo has a huge dose of self-confidence and craves power and attention. He wants to be in the spotlight, among a group of adoring fans. The Lion is also a natural leader, and others often look to him for advice and solutions to problems. He’s always more than ready to accept these challenges. He has an insatiable passion for life and revels in the finer things. He’ll almost always choose the best restaurant, the best hotel and the best automobile. He’s a hard worker, with intelligence and creativity, so he usually has no problem being able to afford such luxuries.
The Leo man and Sagittarius woman will have a lot of fun together, but a long-lasting relationship may seem beyond their grasp. Sagittarius may be too much of a flirt and a free spirit for the Lion to handle. Also, there may be a constant struggle over the limelight because they’ll both seek attention from others.
All of this goes back to Leo’s ruler, the sun, which is all about magnetism and “pull”. And because Leo is a fixed sign that is resistant to change, those born under this Zodiac know exactly what they want. These are not “wishy washy” people.
Lastly on this point – Leos men are good with money. While they are sometimes accused of spending lavishly, the truth is most Leo males much prefer to sock away money for a rainy day. In this way, they are similar to Capricorn men.
Once a Leo man commits to you in a relationship, he’s going to be extremely loyal and fiercely protective. However, because Leo men crave attention, they also can push boundaries by being overly flirtatious. If you are a possessive sign, such as Scorpio or Cancer, it’s important to keep this in mind.
A Leo man loves anything outrageous, so keep in mind that if you want to impress him, you must be prepared to do something grand. He’s seen it all before, had kingdoms laid at his feet, you know – so what he really wants from you is nothing less than, well, your whole heart. On a silver (no, better make that golden) platter. Your “heart” means your authenticity, your radical vulnerability, and your willingness to show up 100% for love and all that it can offer.
The differences between the Pisces woman and Leo man can make for some excellent chemistry. The Fish is perfectly happy to let the Lion have all the attention, and because of Pisces’ passivity, she’ll never try to dominate her Leo mate. The Lion will make the Fish feel safe and loved, and she’ll reciprocate by providing a comfortable home. The only problem that might arise is Leo’s extroverted nature, Pisces would rather stay at home than be in crowds.
When he finds himself in a relationship, he will do anything to show how gallant, confident and powerful he is. This is not something that he does out of insecurity, but something that he finds necessary to seduce the subject of his desire. He will show off, make you laugh and be the biggest hero you could have ever hoped for. If anyone is waiting for Prince Charming, he might be found in Leo, for he feels and acts like royalty. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be taken quite literally and he can act as if he is a spoiled prince, lazy, bossy and thinking that he is the center of the Universe. However, he might still win you over by pointing out his incredible attributes, but turn out to be quite a disappointment if you hope he will become less selfish.
On the down side, Leo is very jealous and possessive. He must always come first in your life, even before your children. He might not want to share you with the demands of your career. The Lion can have an explosive temper when he feels that his “possessions” or his territory are threatened. Even harmless flirting is a no-no with the king of the jungle.

If you are Leo (man or woman), it is important to know that your sign is somewhat rare. Although the numbers are somewhat scattered, we think that only 7% of the world’s population is Leo. There are more men born under the Leo sign than woman for reasons we do not fully understand.
Dogs are thought of for their ability to act as good companions. This is true of Leo signs, who like their canine friends tend to be loyal and focused. To a lesser or greater degree, dogs also can be empathic.
And to be clear, I’m not an astrologer. My goal isn’t to get you to spend money on a “reading” on Leo men or read your tarot cards. In truth, I genuinely enjoy writing about these topics for reasons that I don’t fully understand.
Empowered by sheer energy, Leo men have the ability to hypnotically make others fall in love with them by merely being in their presence. This may seem like hyperbole and over the top but it also happens to be true.
In most cases, Leo man can be trusted, except when he simply doesn’t care about you. This is not the man that will spend his time in guilt, not secure about his decisions and choices of partners. He will lie only if he doesn’t want to deal with the boring consequences of his words, never out of fear. In general, this is not the man who is afraid, and this is what can make him such a faithful and trustful partner. Still, there are times when he doesn’t see the point of honesty because he doesn’t really want to get too attached or close to anyone. If you want to see if he should be trusted, don’t obsess. Instead, simply ask yourself – do you feel loved?
Figure out how he likes to be stroked (behind the ears or under the chin – but use those adoring lips again!), and in no time you’ll have him rolling around in ecstasy like he’s just found the catnip mother lode.
When a Leo struts into the room, with his catlike lazy swagger, he might seem the picture of nonchalance – but you can bet that he is secretly gauging the effect he’s having, and taking note of who’s noticing him. When a Leo man is really feeling himself at a party or gathering, he may bounce all over the room like Tigger, bopping from conversation to conversation, riling things up. Don’t be too shocked if he ends up doing cartwheels or break dancing in the middle of the dance floor.
Outside of finding a way to be the boss, some Leos just find it easier to work alone, especially in artistic or creative fields. With traits that make them self-driven and motivated, they can access great inner endurance when their focus is on realizing a personal vision with their art or passion.
Translate this kind of courageousness into gift-giving, and you’ll find that while a platinum credit card isn’t required (though it sure couldn’t hurt), the best way to show your Leo man that you’re mad for him is to do something so memorable, so completely unforgettable that he’ll be regaling dinner parties with stories about it for years to come. Tailor it to be so uniquely him that the gift truly couldn’t mean anything to anyone else. You may have to listen carefully for months while he expounds about all his favorite things, or do a little sleuth work to come up with something that shows him that you’ve really been paying attention and that you truly do care.

A dedicated gourmand, Leo men love to eat fine food, even if they don’t particularly relish preparing it. A fabulous multi-course dinner at a well-regarded restaurant is a special treat, but only if it’s somewhere that he hasn’t already been a thousand times before. Leos prefer the unusual, so go with Burmese or Paraguayan fusion over staid and basic country cookin’.
Money and Leos have a complicated relationship, as it tends to fall through their paws like water. They love to make grand gestures and be big spenders, even when they don’t have the actual cash to back it up. They can be a bit delusional about their credit scores and can end up easily in debt from overspending wildly. That being said, Leo men always seem to have cash when it counts and can be abundance magnets. If they play their cards wisely, everything they touch seems to turn to gold.
When you consider that owls have been historically tied to wisdom, it makes sense that one of the five Leo symbols would be an owl. In fact, wisdom, gained through experience, is a major trait of Leo.
Love can be tricky territory for a Leo man and Scorpio woman. Both the Lion and the Scorpion have dynamic personalities, and both are extremely jealous. Scorpio, like Leo, thinks a lot of herself and doesn’t enjoy praising others, which of course, Leo craves.
Leo is one of the most potent men of the zodiac, but he enjoys the creative and inspiring act of sex. He doesn’t need a partner to share the same sexual relations with every day, but someone who will allow experiments and be secure enough to show their sexuality as openly as he would. Although he sticks to some traditional values, he still likes his partners strong and willful, fiery enough for the passion to flow. He will never settle down for a woman with low self-esteem who thinks of sex as a routine or an obligation. He needs to be surprised, seduced, and he wants someone to speak of his abilities, strengths and enjoy sexy communication as much as he does.

Are you hunting for information on Leo men? Trying to figure out their personality and compatibility? Are you hoping to find out if the Leo guy you are like is good at dating and relationships? Finally, are you curious about what Leo men are like in bed?
Leo is openhearted, grand in his gestures and easy to talk to. He is comfortable to be with, for he will enjoy a relationship full of respect and warmth. He has this beautiful hug that no other sign has. On the other hand, he can be bossy, pretentious and self-involved to the point in which it is impossible to be his partner.
A Leo can appear to be a bit conceited and ostentatiously vain, loving to preen his fabulous mane, so hair-care products, beard oil, or a session with a great barber will all speak to his desire to be the prettiest lion of them all.
The home of a Leo man is akin to a male Lion’s den. He can be extremely territorial about protecting his space, his family, and his possessions. Most comfortable when he knows everything in his domain is his, this cat does not make the easiest roommate. He can be generous when sharing things but, unfortunately, he may lend or gift items that aren’t his to give.
To get the attention of a male Lion, shower him with praise. If he’s telling a joke, laugh. If he’s relating some daring narrative, be spellbound. Compliment him in some way: his looks, his fashion sense, his sense of humor, his expertise on a subject. It doesn’t matter so much what you praise him for, as long as your praise seems sincere. Once you begin dating, always look your best. A male Leo will see you as an extension of himself, so he’ll want you to be a positive asset. Use the Lion’s love for sensual pleasures to your advantage by dabbing on a bit of expensive perfume and wearing a classically elegant dress. When it comes to marriage, never try to dominate a Lion, and never let him doubt your fidelity. Your gentle kitty cat will bare his fangs and claws in either scenario, and turn into a roaring beast! The Leo man thrives on constant adoration and devotion, which let him know that he’s the center of your universe. Keep the romance alive by surprising him with candlelit dinners, love notes and unexpected small gifts. Play his favorite sultry song sometimes during dinner, and hang on for the fireworks for dessert!
