How to Date a Leo Man
These men know how to court a woman like a queen.
When dating, the Leo man is looking to have a good time and find a woman that can match his fiery flame.
He is a busy man with many options to choose from: women love him.
When he finally finds a woman who adds significant value to his life (and is happy to stroke his ego), he will fall hard and sweep her off her feet.
It’s a whirlwind, and it can catch you off-guard if you’re not used to all of the attention, intimacy and romance.
How should you approach him? What keeps him enthralled?
Let’s talk about that now. Here’s our best advice on dating a Leo man.

1. Start stimulating conversations
Leos love to talk, even though it’s mostly about themselves (just kidding—sorta!).
Being highly creative and sociable, Leos are able to navigate the world learning from others and can talk about pretty much anything.
They have a youthful spirit and are curious about many topics.
You can talk to him about books, movies, sports, politics, entertainment, conspiracies, you name it.
He enjoys good conversation, so get his mind whirling with ideas.
2. Plan exciting dates
One thing you never want to do is bore a Leo man.
The best dates to go on with him need to be new and exciting.
Try the new Cajun restaurant in town, go to an amusement park, go zip-lining.
On a day date, you want to do something that will get him energized and in high spirits.
Or if he’s the cerebral type, go to a museum or do something mentally stimulating.
He likes to have a good time and loves it even more when he has someone special to join him.
3. Embrace the cultural side of life
The Leo man is always invited to the cool gallery openings and on-the-list-only parties in town.
Whether it’s to do with business or just having a good time, he will be there and will play the part of the suave gentleman.
What’s even better is when he has a lady as worldly as he is to go out with.
Go ahead and speak your mind (not that you need any man for that!), and don’t hesitate to engage in cultural topics of conversation.
He’s highly attracted to someone he feels shares his affinity for all things cultural.
4. Practice patience
There are times when he wants what he wants right now and will stop at nothing until he gets it.
But when it comes to dating, he’ll like to take his time.
If he likes you, he wants to get to know you and make sure there is a true connection between you two. Don’t rush him into anything or you may push him away.
I know it’s hard, especially when you’re wondering what’s going on under the surface. This is why Anna Kovach covers how he really views the relationship in Leo Man Secrets.
But when you let him go at his own pace, he feels that the pressure is off and will likely open up to you quicker.
5. Be vulnerable
Always tell him the truth and be honest with him about how you feel.
Loyalty is important to Leos and they value anyone who is able to be open and honest with them.
Leos are sensitive themselves and at times need someone whom they feel they can talk to about what’s going on in their lives.
A Leo will appreciate a woman who is brave enough to open up and share her feelings with him.
It brings out his soft side, too. The Lion will be purring like a kitten!
6. Focus on intimacy
To keep this hot guy’s flame burning, he needs a high level of intimacy in his life.
And we’re not just talking between the sheets—he craves an emotional intimacy that’s special between you two.
Hold his hand while you’re on a walk at the park, plan dates where you look at the stars while you hold one another.
Anything that will bring you closer together is a must and will create a tighter bond.
7. Avoid making him look foolish
If you embarrass a Leo in public he will have a hard time forgiving it.
Their reputation is too important to them!
Everyone needs someone to vent to sometimes after a fight, but choose those you do so with carefully—it shouldn’t become town gossip.
Try not to openly criticize him, especially around other people. Present what you have to say logically and with a sense of caring so you don’t bruise his ego.
Little things like this will go a long way in keeping things copacetic.
8. Be his best friend
More than anything a Leo man wants a woman that he considers his best friend.
He wants someone he can share his dreams and goals with and to create exciting memories together.
Do fun things together, make each other laugh. Be silly.
Open up to him and show him that he can trust you. Listen to him and be there for him.
He needs to know that at the end of the day, not only does he have a lover, but also a friend.
Of course, there’s always more to learn about how to date a Leo man.
If you’re worried about making the wrong move with your Leo guy or you just want to make sure the relationship is all smooth sailing, Leo Man Secrets is chock-full of good advice.
