Possible Reasons a Leo Man Is Ignoring You
All seemed to be going well until you realize you haven’t gotten a goofy text from him in days.
It’s not like him to ignore you, or so you thought.
So what’s the problem?

Did he just start a new job? Does he have an important meeting at work coming up? Is his family in town?
Saying “I’m busy” is the excuse of all excuses, but sometimes it’s true.
Leos are a busy zodiac sign and are always attending events or engrossed in work or projects. As much as they try, they can’t always keep up with everything and everyone.
However, if you are important he will always get back to you as soon as he can. It may just take a while for him to catch up.
You haven’t been paying him enough attention
Even when we don’t mean to, sometimes we neglect the people in our lives because we have so many other things going on.
You might have been face to face with your Leo and not really listening. And he noticed.
Leos can’t stand it when you don’t pay them proper attention.
If he feels slighted by your lack of attention, he may ignore you as payback.
His ego is bruised
Did you hurt his feelings recently? If so that’s a good reason why you haven’t been hearing from him.
Leos are prideful and do not take well to criticism or anything they feel is an affront to their egos.
On top of that, Leos are super sensitive. So if you hurt his feelings, he may be pretty upset.
Unfortunately, instead of talking to you about it, he ignores you.
He’s testing you
As silly as it sounds, sometimes a Leo man will ignore a woman to see how much she cares about him.
Yes it’s childish, but he needs the validation that you like him, and this is how he goes about getting it.
He’ll want to see what you will do to get him to talk to you again.
That’s his ego going into overdrive!
We just looked at possible reasons why he’s ignoring you, so now let’s see what you can do to get him to stop.
What to Do When Leo Man Ignores You
1. Resist the urge to blow up his phone
If you have been trying to get a hold of him and he’s not responding, take a step back.
Stop contacting him for a while. See if he reaches out to you.
I know it can be tempting to want to call or message him but it’s best if you don’t.
If he’s upset, he needs time to process his feelings. If he’s just busy, he may be finding the right time to talk to you.
Even if he’s testing you, you need to strike a balance because smothering him is going to turn him off.
If a week goes by and you still haven’t heard from him, call or message him again.
But if you chase after him relentlessly and demand that he talk to you, it may only push him further away.
If all else fails and you still can’t figure out what’s going on, your best move is to understand his motives and desires with a guide like Leo Man Secrets.
2. Give him extra attention
When you are with him, try to make him feel extra special.
Perhaps there’s something that’s been bugging him and he just hasn’t brought it up yet. He’ll be more encouraged to if you treat him well.
As the saying goes, you’ll catch more flies with honey.
Be extra sweet to him and don’t give your phone more attention than you give him.
If his ego has been hurt, you’ll be helping to fix that, which will help him come around.
And if he just wanted more affection from you, he’s got it!
3. Continue to live your life
Even though you may be sad that your Leo guy is ignoring you, it’s best if you live life as normally as possible.
Keep going out with your friends and don’t break your routines to sit home and stew.
If you have mutual friends or he sees pictures on social media that show your world doesn’t crumble when he ignores you (he doesn’t have to know how upset you really are), he’ll be more likely to try and talk to you.
And you’ll feel better by keeping yourself busy with your own life, so win-win.
4. Talk it out
If you’re involved with a Leo man and he’s not a total jerk, he won’t ignore you forever.
When he’s talking to you again, let him explain his reasoning for going quiet. Genuinely listen to him without cutting him off or getting upset with him.
When he’s finished, ask him what you can do to help in the future if he’s going through something. Let him know he doesn’t have to carry the burden alone and that you want to be there for him.
He will respect that you gave him the time to talk things through and get his feelings out.
