Leo are blessed with many positive traits such as generosity, warmth, loyalty and creativity. They usually have a kind and loving disposition which makes them attractive partners. However, they can also be controlling and intolerant so there are plenty of factors to consider if a lasting relationship with a Leo is to be achieved.
The Leo is generally a warm-hearted individual who will provide you with a lifelong friendship once you have gained their trust. But, should you cross a Leo, then you run the risk of having created an enemy for life. The Leo can have a very focused attention to whatever challenge is put before them and a determination to see it through to a conclusion. In pursuit of their goal they can appear stubborn or even obsessive. They much prefer to be in control than to follow orders which can be a good quality if it knits well with a less domineering prospective partner.
The Leo is very open and direct when expressing themselves and love to be the center of attention. They are often highly creative with a keen interest in the arts. They are very outgoing and love to socialize, being prepared to go to great lengths to please their friends and loved ones. Should they fall out with their partner they can become temporarily withdrawn but they can usually move on with their faith quickly restored and dedicate themselves to a new lover. This is particularly true of the Leo male who, whilst he likes to be the dominant partner, can display deeply loving feelings once they feel secure in a lasting relationship. They do need to feel as though they are ultimately in control and would not relish having their authority challenged by a strong woman of a similar nature. They do genuinely seek a lifelong partner and enjoy stability in their lives.
Similarly, a Leo woman values her independence and can be a little fiery. They can also be intelligent, ambitious and, like the Leo male, much prefer to be in control. They do not like to settle for second best and can appear a little pretentious and melodramatic. Consequently they make take several lovers before they find a truly suitable partner. However, deep down they are very sensitive and they adore attention and lavish gifts. They can also make for very adventurous and passionate lovers.
The Leo of either sex makes a very reliable friend and will be there when you need them most. Because of their natural leadership qualities they can get along very well with almost anyone and this, aligned with their need for perfection, can be a great asset in business. Unfortunately they are not usually a good judge of character, possibly this is more true of the male who likes to be praised and may not question the source or the motive.
The Leo will not be everyone’s ideal partner but, if you can harness that slightly enlarged ego and provide them with security and a sincere loving relationship, then they will make fiercely protective, passionate and rewarding partners.
