Leo and dating

Once i got ENGAGED to a Leo. God, where do i start. I don’t even think i can detail the story here. I could not stand the scenes, the blowback, the rocketing straight to a theatrical Defcon 9 at the appropriation of his mojo by mere mention “on your blog that nobody sane reads.

There was ego, jealous tantrums (over clearly gay male waiters) and an envious snit over more attention being given to the CAT. There was a Redken hair product fetish. Not to mention there was a delusional identification with movie stars. And there was infidelity that was a pre-emptive revenge fuq because Leo thought my interest was wandering. Plus, there was a weird preoccupation with how others – strangers even – perceived him. Names were not dropped so much as bombed.

Other than the name-bombing, non-stop jealous tantrums and bloated ego, he was really, really nice. And good in a crisis when he had not actually caused it. Because it would make him look good to be the hero of that particular scene. The engagement did not progress.

The Mystic community reveals all

But Charley loves Leos!

‘I LOVE Leo men. And I know they can be totally precious, dramatic and oversensitive but for some reason the Leo brand of drama doesn’t bother me too much, I kind of find myself wanting to indulge it and almost finding it amusing. I generally find I get a lot of warmth, loyalty, physical affection, understanding and care in return which makes it totally worthwhile.’

You’ll want to read the whole of Fallen Angel‘s comment for the full story!

‘Yes, I too dated a Leo. It happened. Somehow. Very briefly. First, yes, he WAS a sweetheart. Second, yes, he had enough drama that it began to feel like he’d turned his life into an extremely overwritten soap opera.’

‘Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr… don’t start me. I once dated a Leo who was also really really nice when he wasn’t stoned, having a drama, creating a drama, stressed due to someone else’s drama, crying over a drama. You get the picture.’ At least prowlncrab can find the humour in it.

Ezhirri shares:

‘As an Aquarius I have a strange love-hate relationship with Leos. I have no planets in Leo, so I’m not sure where the attraction originates other than maybe my South Node placed there or the fact that my dad is a Leo Sun AND Moon? (How does my mother even deal?) Have dated both solar Leos and lunar Leos. Always a certain amount of need for control, possessiveness, and jealousy.’

And you? Share your Leo and dating experience.

I’m a Leo with (Scorpio ascendant, and Pluto in Libra), and I can’t roar it loud enough that Leo men are the pits! Much happier with Sagittarius beaus.

Yes… I noticed that they are very giving people but that giving comes with a high price tag. If you do not give back to them in the manner that they deem appropriate, at an amount that they deem enough, then it is hasta la vista, baby! I have even had one steal from me because he thought he was owed more from me… yuck… On the positive side, if you can maintain the level of attention and giving that they want back, there company can be quite delightful.

I haven’t ever dated a Leo but two of my sisters are and one of my brothers in law is and one of my best male friends. i’m only just realising how much they can push my buttons and how much they gaslight me and i’m finally learning to put boundaries down. So far not so good as they all tend to have tantrums of epic proportion when they realise i’m not going to behave the way i normally behave and go with their crap. I should’ve done it sooner. Also new Leo parents?? UGGGHHH! the pompous over bearing know-it… Read more »

I LOVE Leo men, I’ve decided they’re pretty much my favourites. I know they can be totally precious, dramatic and oversensitive but for some reason the Leo brand of drama doesn’t bother me too much, I kind of find myself wanting to indulge it and almost finding it amusing. I generally find I get a lot of warmth, loyalty, physical affection, understanding and care in return which makes it totally worthwhile.

I am a Leo Goddess with Libra rising and Capricorn moon… I dated a Leo twice – amazing! I’ve had my past lovers come back and tell me how dating me has changed their lives – for the better! Not sure what sign I’m truly compatible with, been single so long I’ve fallen in love with ME! 😉

My Mom worked for a Leo once. She’s a Virgo Sun with a Leo Mars. He got on her nerves bad. She said he would enter the office in almost a manic state and dig through the files like “a cat in a litter box”. And then she would have to put it all back together. She managed to hang in for about 6 months. 🙂

I had a fling 11 months ago with a Leo. He was so charming from the second I met him and I knew magic was going to happen. He is totally gorgeous. He said he wanted to keep in touch and he did for 6 months. But there were rules as he has a wife. My Leo psychic tells me the Leo is still around me. Got a photo of him on my vision board with the words “a great love”. Waiting to see what the full moon eclipse reveals.

I don’t get it? A fabulous man is an honest one. It isn’t logical to pursue a guy with such obvious faults such as cheating. It’s like ensuring you will get heart stamped on.

We were at this outdoor rave, when he thought he saw his girl rolling around and kissing this boy out in the fields ( the actual reality was just his girl laying around w her best buddy in the field, that is all ). he didn’t find out the truth til 36hours later, he was so mad at her, and i was so :O in front of him, i grabbed him back to my place… I used to live with 20 punks,… Read more »

Wow MM……sorry you had one of those. Most of us have though, or some variation. I have only mildly dated a leo one. WE never got beyond kissing. Leo men are so not my favorite, even with my leo moon. But the one I barely saw was so cute. I felt safe with him, but he was 10 years younger and in such a different stage than me. Having sex with him would have felt wrong. I have wondered though, maybe if we met 10 to 20 years later. Anyways. He was the only Leo. And balding. Most of sucked… Read more »

Mystic you have just described the Leo that i almost married too… I know there are good ones though, but that one had a serious personality disorder. My first and second boyfriends when i was only 17 and 18 were both Leos. One more on the Virgo spectrum, so he was very helpful and the virgo helped tone down the ego, but he was very fun. The second one was nuts, liked scaring me by driving really fast and would put such ridiculous shows on in public. He was a personal trainer, he RULED the gym where i met him.… Read more »

“Names were not dropped so much as bombed.” lol!!!

I have never dated a Leo but my first serious boyfriend was a Virgo with Leo moon and a bunch of other Leo placements. Similar jealousy issues and also a Redken product & general hair obsession + paranoia over weight gain despite being fit. He turned out to be a legitimate sociopath and went to jail for abusing me…but that’s a different story and has more to do with his own crazy abusive childhood and not astrology.

I’ve only dated one Leo, he was a multi-Leo, gorgeous, charismatic, very loyal. Women would stare at him in the street. I was 22 at the time and couldn’t stand the perceived competition from other women. We were mismatched at the time but have recently reconnected via FB, he’s stil absolutely gorgeous, generous and loyal, still married and in love with his wife of 25 years… so no hard feelings there. My current housemate is 4-planet 10th house Leo sun and EVERYTHING is a big performance… the highs, the lows. No half way for this girl and since Jupe got… Read more »

Love that ‘runs for fire blanket’ or bucket of water might be apropro for a leo on passionate rant. But don’t get their hair wet ha
Reminds of the time I did get thrown in a tub full of ice water at a party after mouthing off drunkenly and embarrassing my brother. He then kicked us out of party and made us walk home (about 5 km out of a poss 10km) before picking up our sobbing slobby arses and lecturing us all the way home.

Yeah I tend to turn on my multi-Piscean 7th house water and it completely neutralises her 🙂
Although, as Leo rising myself I have more than a few huge scenes on my CV… quite a lot of devastatingly scathing speeches followed by a dramatic exit stage left in my youth, 20s, 30s, ok my 40s 🙂

Yes but imagine marrying into that family anyway…you dodged a bullet eh? Young Aries men I’ve known sometimes seemed to be attracted to a beautiful princess, and it’s awful an way to find that princess has clay feet. I actually had a childhood friend, who had a relationship (late teens, early 20s) with a slightly older guy we both knew, a surfer and a bit of a lad whereas she was somewhat of a princess. Their relationship of a few years was actively discouraged by her Scorpio mother, and my friend eventually married someone from a similar background. The Capricorn… Read more »

Of course your right. Would have been crazy and plain stoopid. I still see her older brother who knew I had escaped with my life. We just have a knowing smile across the room.
Through that emotional storm I really found my Aries (stoopid) fearlessness. So the princess did bestow a great gift. Bitch 🙂

I do like the sound of your Leo miss V. You portray him in a beautiful way. I feel his sag moon, what a good compliment to the Leo sun. What house is his sun ? And moon ?

Veronica

He has 1st house moon and Neptune, and 10th sun, mercury, Saturn.

Yep, I also know a bit about kissing frogs and princes that are actually toads.
This particular frog has turned into a prince, (although you couldn’t really describe him as a frog, he was nicknamed Tasmanian devil as a small kid and it is much more apt description)

My father is a very warm-hearted Leo, can hardly say a bad thing about anyone, even if they have crossed him. He’s very sentimental and lovey-dovey, which I think gave me a good example of a sensitive man growing up. My mother is Aqua so she doesn’t do the lovey-dovey so much (and neither do I), but we appreciate Dad’s sentimentality, it’s cute. I dated a Leo in university who was so fun, uber friendly and nice, and very generous. Wasn’t very attractive but had nice hair. Recently kind of dated a scary super low-vibe Sag/Leo rising who was OBSESSED… Read more »

Thanks Sphinx! My Pa is sweet, I’m very lucky. Even though his birth chart shows a late Aries Moon, I kind of think there could be a timing error, because the description of Leo Sun/Pisces Moon makes a lot of sense for his personality.

The Leo is the Love of my life after more than 12 years of single life, and plenty enough experiences with other types of men. Regarding paranoia and drama, I agree with Crazy crone that it’s totally helpful to be able to stand your ground and shout back (or throw things) just as hard when you need to…Am finding less and less need for that these days. We had a break through recently where he admitted to feeling vulnerable about certain important things, which makes me feel very protective of him.

Well I definitely hit the Leo jackpot. I have a shy introvert Leo husband. He’s perfectly self-assured and secure and spends time in front of the mirror and trimming his nails etc but he is the least drama seeking person I’ve ever met. He is the man who helped me to equate Leo with indolence. And true luxury, not expensive designer crap. He’s tempered by his Pisces Ascendent and moon, and his wit is helped by Mercury in Virgo and Venus in Gemini….. No complaints whatsoever except maybe occasional laziness. He’s the best. And I feel like he literally has… Read more »

I too am happily married to a Leo man. He’s got that Scorpio rising and Virgo moon so he ~seems~ more even tempered. His Venus is in Cancer, so he is a peace-loving caring person but his Mars in Gemini motormouth drives me bananas! Almost more than the once in a while “world revolves around him” bit. I’m an Aquari so I can shut him out and do my own thing if he gets too demanding, but my Leo moon adores him and Pisces Venus is all too happy to compromise 🙂

That he was a psych major who chose to be an educator focusing on work with autistic kids. That he certified himself as a massage therapist as it worked well with physical work he was doing with them. But then he got suspended by the school board based on an accusation from a frantic mother that her child… Read more »

too much virgo to be so loud but leo 5th house as well. Pride was the order of the day and if he’d run the decor everything would have looked like a bohemian tribute to Louis V.

insanely so perhaps

I am beginning to think my ex is a rising Leo and not a rising cancer. Birth Certs are often wrong by a sign or two, depending on the nursing staff’s attention to the forms. The key is the “needing” to be center of attention constantly, but he is also a sun Gemini, so… My Gem daughter needs heaps and heaps of attention to feel good. I have to make sure she gets lots of one-on-one time with me. Otherwise I am ‘neglectful.’ But my ex, when I think back, always had this mane of hair. He loves cats (not… Read more »

Missed the bit about Aries, LadyLeo. Yes, it would account for the complete lack of tact. Very honest, mind you, but can’t understand why people get upset when he tells them the utter truth.

Sphinx, I couldn’t agree more. I’m a Leo who was married to a Leo… and it just didn’t work. Many lovely qualities (beautiful hair, kind heart), but it’s very hard to have both a King and a Queen trying to run things. I find things go more smoothly with the Cancerian second husband, who I have a bit of a gender-role-reversal thing going on with. His Moon to my Sun.

Wow – sounds like you had a major Dark Sun Leo on your hands…..maybe a he was Pluto (or BML) in Leo as well? That could make for non-stop drama and attention-whoring tendencies. I find the species quite lovely, personally. Yes, there is mane-preening and a love of adoration, but there is warmth, humor, and generosity to haute Leo that makes it the #1 sign in the world when their level of consciousness isn’t in the basement. And the sex….! Very frisky & playful without being too lighthearted – I’ve always found the Lion to be a great lover, one… Read more »

I would love to know more haute Leo’s so my sample size is greater. There is one in my collection. Again a truly fascinating person to talk to about “creativity”
I am relatively new to Leo Land and still finding my way around. Some low Leo experiences (Pluto plus) tainting my perceptions as described above. sigh

I had the most darling best friend Leo. Truly lovable (ask anyone who’s met her). She was funny, wildly artistic, entertainer extraordinaire, but when she skidaddled on me during my divorce, after I’d nursed her through a 10 year-long heartache, I just couldn’t pay homage to her anymore. But I still love her dearly as a past friend. I do think fondly of her, because it’s impossible not to. Just can no longer pair her with the word “friend.”

I guess I meant to categorize her as a haute Leo! Haha! I still would categorize her that way, oddly. She IS very noble and would fight for an underdog in many instances–just not when she is otherwise preoccupied? So complex, these humans.

I wouldn’t go so far as to call him a Dark Sun Leo .. I mean he really was a bit of a sweetheart and had some of the lovely Leo traits that we all enjoy. Yes to awesome lover, very well dressed, very romantic, affectionate, demonstrative and affectionate. But yeah … the fucked up paranoid, neurotic bits kinda took over at times. He’s got Pluto on his Cap moon in the 7th – that’s GOTTA hurt…

Hi prowlncrab – I was actually referring to Mystic’s Tale Of Woe, but sounds as if the shoe may fit for your Leo as well. I do appreciate the honesty and self-reflection in your story, though – it takes a lot to be able to look at our past (or present) Selves to see what it was/is within us that attracted (attracts) this kind of dynamic within partnerships. It sounds like you’ve come a long way since that time in your life. It would be an interesting science experiment to see what would happen if you were to meet a… Read more »

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr … don’t start me.

I once dated a Leo who was also really really nice when he wasn’t stoned, having a drama, creating a drama, stressed due to someone else’s drama, crying over a drama ….. you get the picture.

YES omg except not dating one but dealing with a leonic type exactly the same as you describe…. Sigh. Like, artist crisis counsellor extraordinaire, Utterly understands the creative process/drive to express. And yet/ but… *shakes head at other stuff* Is it really un-possible to be so chaos at other things? I mean this is not just Leos. Think of a scorp who basically snaps their fingers and you come to bed with them because omg. Or the virgo you turn to because fuq, you have a hot date straight after a job interview, how does one do both perfectly? Or… Read more »

Sorry point being about the other signs I used as examples that they too may be impossibly in other ways. (I say this as a Pisces so you know , infuriating is my middle name)

I’m not sure … as a reformed drama queen a lot of my stress/drama tendancies were defense mechanisms and a distraction from an underlying anxiety/depression disorder. I needed to create a lot of external noise to drown out the racket constantly going on in my head.

That is definitely how the leonine type I am thinking of deals with her issues. Or, not deals with them.

Haha you are such a wonderful writer Mystic. You make me laugh. That would make such a funny script/scene.

Oh and come to think of it. I don’t think I’ve ever been attracted to a Leo, nor they me. Some fun friends, no issues but no cavorting either …
