Men born under the fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo, are ruled by the Sun. The only sign in the zodiac ruled by a star instead of a planet, these Lions feel right at home being the center of attention. Leo men eat up the spotlight with their fiery, blazing passion, and project themselves with pride, honor, strength and determination. People gravitate towards these men, like the planets in our solar system do the Sun. Their infectious optimism and enthusiasm for life is magnetic. Leo men like to surround themselves with others who share their zest for life, and typically find negative, over-sensitive people draining to be around.
Leo men wear confidence on their sleeve like a badge of honor. Typically extroverted, Leo men are full of grand stories and idealistic plans. Being a fixed fire sign, they have strong opinions that can lean on the verge of stubbornness when they don’t get their way. Leo men believe they know it all, and are eager to share that knowledge and advice with others, even if their opinions are unwelcome. To the Leo man, they believe they are helping, and can take it quite personally if their guidance is unappreciated or unnoticed. When their fragile egos get damaged and they feel insecure, they tend to overcompensate with gregarious, over-the-top conceit that can come off as arrogance and narcissism.
However, these men are well-intentioned, and have a genuine interest in pleasing others and making people happy. One of the great assets Leo men bring to the zodiac is their unwavering and selfless generosity. They wouldn’t think twice about giving you the shirt off their back. Not only are these men caring and warm-hearted friends, but they can be some of the most devoted and passionate romantic partners in the zodiac.
Appearances are important to him, so he’ll be likely to be attracted to classy, respectable partners who he’ll be proud to show off on his arm. When Leo men find a woman worthy of his attention, he’ll shower her with romance, gifts, and grand gestures of love. When the lion falls in love, he falls hard, and is extremely loyal once committed to a partner. When a woman finds her way into his heart, she’ll see quite a different side to him than he presents to the world. These men are tender at heart, and have quite a sentimental, soft interior that they show only to a few trusted companions and confidants. These roaring lions turn into pussy-cats when in the comfort of their lair, and will dote on their partner, giving in to any of her needs and desires.
Leo men want to be the king of the castle, and have their cake and eat it too. These starry-eyed fellows are at best when surrounded by close friends and family who reciprocate their love. On the other hand, these fiery men are at their worst when their tender egos get bruised, and can become volatile, unpredictable and arrogant until they crawl their way back to the top of the food chain.
