Leo is known for being full of life, outgoing, lovable and exuberant.
But there are some Leos who are modestly confident, and more introverted in nature. They may not demand attention like extroverted Leos but they still enjoy getting it, and know that they've got something to offer. They simply may not be as inclined to talk about it with others.
Leo wants things to be good all the time and although they are prone to drama, Leo is more inclined to look on the bright side. Leo doesn't want to be on bad terms with anyone, if anything they will go out of their way to be nice to their enemies. Leo is a "kill them with kindness" type, and often won't stoop to insults during a conflict. Leo is the often the person you can rely on. They have their friends' backs come hell or high water.
Leo rules the heart and loves deeply, but they don't want just anybody. When they meet the right person, they will just know. It will be instinctual. When a Leo decides that they want you, they will be eternally yours.
The thing is, Leo needs attention. A Leo needs to be adored, pet, and loved. When Leo isn't getting this in their relationship, they will find it somewhere else.
It's not to say that they cheat (though they could), but they will turn towards something or someone who is going to boost their ego. Emotional cheating does occur here, as well as flirtations.
Some Leos, who cross this line, will find solace in someone else. In other cases, merely engaging with good friends can bring out the best in Leo and restore them.
Here are five reasons why you should always pay attention to your Leo:
1. A Leo is the type to think, "stroke my back and I'll stroke yours."
Your Leo will build you up when your kingdom falls; they will be there to catch you. They will do anything for you, even if this means putting their own agenda second.
If a Leo is complimenting you all the time, it is a subconscious hint that they need some of this encouragement back. Leo needs to know that you love them, so be sure to tell them on a regular basis.
Leo is prepared to match you on every level. They are wired to do everything you do for them and then some. Leo will really surpass your expectations of what it means to be a good partner, and the people in your life will notice this.
2. A Leo brings flare, fun and personality into a relationship.
As a fire sign, Leo knows how to turn up the heat. They know how to create the perfect mood. They have a lot of passion in their heart, and they express this on the regular.
Leo lives their life for the things they love most, and the things they enjoy doing the most. The people in their lives are the most important to them. You'll be hard-pressed to find a Leo in a career that doesn't speak directly to their heart. Leo is the type to do what they love and love what they do.
3. A Leo has a sense of loyalty.
Even if the definition of being loyal changes, Leo will sacrifice their own needs for your loyalties.
So, Leo might forgive something that they should be upset about. Leo will make allowances for the people they love.
This can be a problem as Leo will lower their expectations in the relationship so they can complement the needs of their partner. Leo won't even tell you when they are mad, though it will come out later (when things have accumulated for too long).
Leo doesn't like to stir the pot if they can help it, but they do get frustrated when they give too much, and get back too little.
Loyalty is incredibly sacred to the Leo, and if you dishonor it, it will take time for Leo to forgive you and move forward. If Leo really loves you, they are almost always open to working it out.
4. A Leo likes being the center of attention.
You won't want to miss Leo in action, as they quickly become the life of the party.
It is important for Leo that their partner finds them funny and enjoys their ability to work the room (when they want to).
Leo wants to feel supported, but Leo also wants the validation that they are enjoyable.
Leo is known for cracking jokes and telling stories. They bring the light. Shy or lazy Leo may seek entertainment on the sly, but they are probably known in their close circles for making people laugh and enjoy the moment.
5. A Leo has a tremendous amount of love to give, and they just want to be loved in return.
Leo needs to feel like they are loved and wanted.
They want to feel valued, and like their partner would never want anyone else. Consistent love is the key to keeping your Leo attentive. You have to remind them that they are loved and wanted.
Leo doesn't want to be sexually rebuffed, and they don't want you to be in bad spirits. Leo loves to cheer people up. In fact, Leo will do anything to lift your mood because it hurts them to see the people they care about unhappy. Leo wants you smiling.
Leo is also capable of loving people, even if they can't be with them romantically. Leo has the power to see the good in everyone, and can't escape the qualities in others which are admirable. Even if it didn't work out with you and your Leo, they probably still have some love for you.
Leo can be flaky at times because they just want to make everyone happy and hate to let people down. They are happiest when they have love to come home to.
Leo is looking for someone they can love and trust for a lifetime.
The secret is always reminding your Leo why they are great. Keep the relationship adventurous and spicy.
Leo wants to feel like they are living, but they also need to know that they are loved.
Ignoring the concerns of your Leo could be dangerous. Ensure that they are satisfied, as Leo doesn't always communicate what is bothering them.
As it's been said, Leo likes to make other people happy, but it is important that they make themselves happy in return. Sometimes Leo is so caught up in the bright lights that they mistake love for infatuation, try to understand where your love comes from. Figure out if it has the potential to be a healthy, long-lasting relationship, which is mutually validating.
