There are only two ways of dealing with a Leo man – you can either love him or hate him. Nothing in between is possible with a Leo. Confident, ambitious and fiercely determined, Leo men are spirited individuals, driven by the intense desire to excel and outshine. If you are sad, in despair or simply melancholic, with a Leo around, you can expect that the cloud of gloominess will soon give way to bright sunshine and light. Leo men are warm and affectionate and work hard to spread cheer and smile to others. They are dignified, loyal and extremely generous, which can be seen by the way they shower their love to their lovers. Given the fact, not all is rosy in the personality traits of a Leo man for men under this zodiac sign have an extremely pretentious and dominating attitude. They are full of vanity and have an air about themselves which is hard to manipulate. They are egoistical, stubborn and lazy. To get further details about the nature, the drawbacks and the romantic quotient of Leo men, the lines given below would be helpful. Take a look!

Leo Man Personality Traits & Characteristics

The Bright Side
A Leo man has two sides to his being – Leo the Lioness and Leo the Pussycat. What’s that grin for? Well, there is no pun attached. To believe in the same you actually have to be in close contact with a Leo, or else this may seem to be a witty joke cracked. Most Leo men come across as confident, aggressive, egoistic, fearless and powerful males who love to be in charge all through. Such is the power that they exude that the presence of a Leo man is felt almost immediately. Leo men love to be at the center of attention and enjoy flattery and appreciation. Gaining respect and appreciation from others is what a Leo man aims for. However, he is not bothered as to what leads to the same. Leo men appeal to the senses of the opposite sex through their powerful masculinity, commanding position, sense of showmanship and charismatic presence. They have a bad temper, which when irked can be a cause for worry and apprehension. However, no matter how strong, tough and confident a Leo man appears from the outside, inside he is as sensitive as a Cancerian and can get easily hurt. Leo men have an utmost need to be loved, cared and treasured by their lover. However, it is only when you get extremely close to a Leo that these traits would be visible.

The Dark Side
Have you ever tried taming a lion? If you have, you would know that having a little scorched spot here and there is a part of the game. For rest, if just the thought of being near one makes you wet your pants, get off for you can’t deal with a Leo either. Symbolized by the Lion, Leos are pretentious, domineering, stubborn, demanding, intolerant and stubborn. They have an ego that is as huge as the sky and as deep as the sea (which explains why isn’t there any other man in the zodiac sign who is egoistic!) To be on the good books of a Leo, you have to play along his ego. There are only two ways of dealing with the ego of a Leo man – you can either stroke it affectionately and win over him or fight it incessantly and perish under it. There is no third alternative to dealing with the ego of a Leo man. Another trait that is quite prominent in men under this zodiac sign is their high self-esteem and self-pride. As such, they often look down upon people and think themselves to be superior. Dominance is the middle name for every Leo individual. They love to get respect from people and don’t mind whether the same comes as a result of threat or apprehension. Also, Leo men are highly jealous people. Though they would not make their envious nature public often, a change in their behaviour could be a signal for the same. And when this happens, the lion inside can send the target directly to the hospital bed! So, beware!

Romance Quotient
Romancing the Leo is ditto to feeling as if you are the Queen of the Jungle. He’ll pamper you, caress you, charm you, take care of you and protect you. But one wrong step and he’ll walk away for good. Does this sound good? Of course it does for who doesn’t want a loving partner if the price for the same is just simple loyalty. As, loyalty it is that a Leo seeks from his lover. To make a Leo fall in love with you, you need not rack your brains; a dinner by the moonlit seaside with romantic music and overflowing champagne is all what you need to make the lion go purring and whirring. While dating a Leo man, be prepared to receive lots of gifts, bouquets, love letters and like. You would be taken to the most elite of restaurants and places. Sounds like a fairy tale romance? Here’s the twist! With a Leo man around, you cannot cast even a playful look at other men, lest he breaks their head or bangs them down.

Leo men are ferocious when deceived and can get extremely unreasonable if they suspect their lovers. Dominance is another thing which a Leo man cannot tolerate in a relationship. He likes to take the lead and loves it only when his partner is happy playing second fiddle to perfection. If, by any chance, you dominate him or overrule his opinion, all the love, chivalry, gallantry, care and warmth would go out of the door and you would be exposed to the Lion inside him. Dealing with a Leo requires you to act tactfully and maturely. Pamper him and shower him generously with love, care and stability to subdue his unreasonable vanity. Make sure that you never sideline your Leo and never get the romance out of the life, for a Leo is in constant need of your love and affection. However, once a Lioness always a Lioness is what a Leo believes! He is extremely possessive of his lover and wants her to belong to him wholly. So, before you make a commitment, see if you truly love him or not lest you bring out in open his Lion attitude!
