Fun, daring, outgoing, and popular – Leos are among the liveliest of the zodiac signs.
It’s easy to fall in love with a Leo as their natural zest for life is apparent from the start.
If you want to date one, be prepared for a wild ride!
Here are eight things you need to remember about your Leo partner if you want to keep your relationship strong:
1. They crave the spotlight.
Leos are natural performers with a strong extroverted streak.
They are capable of blending into the background when necessary but they would much rather place themselves front and center!
Socializing comes naturally to them and they are happy to talk to almost anyone.
They like to tell stories and love charming their way into someone’s affections.
You might get tired of hearing about their great adventures from time to time, but you’ll soon forgive them.
2. They have a lot of energy.
If you prefer a laidback lifestyle and enjoy taking things easy, a Leo partner probably isn’t the best choice for you.
From the moment they wake up to the time they go to sleep, Leos are always in motion.
They enjoy seeking out new experiences and ideas so you’ll need to stay open-minded if you want to keep up.
Physical pursuits and sports of all kinds hold strong appeal for Leos. Offer to join them in the gym, on a hike, or in a game of tennis and they will love you forever.
3. They much prefer to lead rather than follow.
A Leo might defer to you for a while but it’s only a matter of time before their natural leadership tendencies will come to the surface.
They like to be the boss both at the office and at home.
This doesn’t mean they are controlling but they like to be the one who ultimately calls the shots.
If you want a partner who takes the initiative and pushes you to encourage your dreams as they chase their own, go ahead and date a Leo!
4. They thrive on admiration.
A Leo loves compliments and praise.
Status, awards, promotions – they all make the average Leo very happy.
What’s more, they delight in their own accomplishments and talents.
Sometimes they can even seem a little too proud or grandiose.
However, they don’t get complacent – when a Leo wins an accolade, you can be sure that they have really earned it.
Although they are confident and full of self-belief they still crave your approval and affection.
Don’t take them or their abilities for granted.
Be sure to offer praise on a regular basis.
Deep down, they simply want to impress you.
5. Leos love romantic gestures.
You can’t go wrong with big bouquets of roses, elaborate dates, and lavish gifts as far as a Leo is concerned.
They relish romance in all its forms.
You don’t need to spend a lot of money to keep a Leo happy, but you do need to show them a lot of love.
Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, birthdays, and other special occasions are important to Leos.
Forget these special events at your peril.
6. They are ambitious.
Leos are energetic and goal-driven.
They are often devoted to their careers and have several important projects going on at the same time.
You’ll need to accept that sometimes they might be too busy to hang out as often as you’d like.
Sometimes they may even push themselves so hard to succeed that their relationships begin to suffer.
Honesty is the best policy – if you feel that they are spending too much time at work, let them know.
7. They are opinionated – and brutally honest.
A Leo rarely answers any question thrown their way with a shrug of their shoulders.
They like to engage their brains and form their own opinions.
On the plus side, you’re sure of a lively conversation.
Unfortunately, they can be rather blunt in putting forward their views.
If you are easily offended, you’ll need to toughen up fast.
Do not ask them a question unless you are sure you can cope with an honest answer.
8. They are loyal, but come with a crowd of admirers.
When a Leo decides to give you their heart, they are in the relationship for the long haul.
However, their natural charisma means that they win hearts wherever they go.
If you get jealous easily, dating an attractive Leo will be a challenge. You will have to choose to trust your partner.
When you fall in love with a Leo, you are falling in love with an exceptional individual who will give you many days (and nights!) to remember.
Give them lots of praise, accept that others are going to find them attractive, and relish in their open and honest nature.
