50 Things I Hate About Leo Men

Returning for your own masochistic amusement, I see. Well, to all you "Storybook Prince Charming" Leo men out there, this is just a fun little bloggy I wrote based upon my own experiences, perceptions and observations of Leo men throughout my life...with a bit of a humorous Scorpio twist. So buckle up *******, because it doesn't matter what it reads. It's about you, and that's ALL you care about anyway.

1.     They are casually sneaky and fail to reveal pertinent information about  themselves from the get go.  It will serve you well to do your homework, and know his past as boring as it may seem.  He'll demonize every woman he's ever been with to ensure the two of you never meet.  Gawd forbid you corroborate stories and form an opinion based on FACT that would validate your worst fears about your 'said' relationship with the Leo man.  

2.     Making sure that their needs are met before yours takes precedence over all, much to your detriment. This means either way, you lose.

3.     In the beginning, you're going to think you've met the man of your dreams...floating on cloud 9 baby. Guaranteed. You will be flooded with emotions you thought never existed in you. Feelings of love, joy, peace, security and happiness. But the honeymoon doesn't last long. Once they become comfortable in your presence, they will take advantage of you without contributing to your household, leave their dirty clothes at your house for you to wash, inconveniencing your life at every turn...if you allow it.

4.     Take the cream of the crop and leave you with the scraps, e.g., use up all the hot water so you get a nice cold shower and leave empty containers of things in your refrigerator that you commonly use without batting an eye or replacing them. 

5.     They tend to be financially tight-fisted (CHEAP), fiscally irresponsible, and rather selfish!  They aren't selfish with themselves though, just you.  With that being said, when the ball is in YOUR court, run with it! 

6.     Extremely disingenuous, even when conveying their deepest emotions to you. It's cute, really. It's as though they are trying to convince themselves that they actually care about you as much as they proclaim.  It's my belief that they've ALL all taken theater/drama classes.  

7.     They never do anything for you without weighing out the benefit they'll stand to gain from it.  There is an ulterior motive for most everything they pull out of their ***** regardless of whether it's your idea or his.  There is no such thing as "selflessness" with this man.   

8.     They've also been known to throw little toiletries and things for themselves into YOUR grocery cart and then walk away when it comes time to pay the cashier.  So long as you're buying, he'll want the biggest, plushest, fastest, most expensive "WHATEVERTHEFUCK" known to man.

9.     So vain. They spend more time in the bathroom primping, plucking and pruning than any woman I've ever known.  Behind that closed door they're admiring themselves in the mirror (hide your hair products) or blowing up your crapper so when you go to use it, there won't be any toilet paper left.

10.     If they have an animal, they will claim it means 'the world' to him but he does little or nothing to maintain the health and well being of that animal.

11.     Their jokes tend to be not funny to anyone but themselves...and it's usually on YOU!

12.     They honestly feel they have the authority to dispense advice like skittles when they can barely manage to keep their own **** together.  Gawd, can they talk. 

13.     They tend to be vapid, dry, insipid and ineffectual or be the total opposite bubbly and personable...either way it's a turn-off because its a mask they use to hide their "fundamental freak" within.

14.     If you ask them to do something that they don't want to, it becomes a HUGE imposition and they try to play it off as though it isn't but it is SO apparent and they make their displeasure known to you...then they wish to be rewarded for their forced efforts.  But goddamit, if they need YOU to be somewhere to do something for them, you better ******* be there!

15.     I have found that many Leo men are absolute "Momma's Boys" and will proudly admit it because chances are, they're still living at home : )

16.     Few are able to live alone for any substantial amount of time and will cling to any unsuspecting woman who happens to glace in their direction.  One lover will never be enough to satisfy this man who constantly looks over the fence and beyond for greener pastures. 

17.     Uhh...before you hand over your house key, once he's wormed his way into your life BUT GOOD, he will literally "seize" any sense of asylum you've sought to preserve in your humble dwelling.  Your sanctuary will become HIS own personal "Extended Stay" hotel.  He'll treat your things like ****, use your fine Egyptian linens to wipe his *** and trample over that load of wash you just pulled out of the dryer.  After all the cha-ching is gone and they've eaten all your food, ****** your house up, taken a nap and molded permanent sweat impressions into the cushions of your couch...they'll split.  You can then plan on spending the remainder of your day (or weekend) disinfecting, washing the funk out of your sheets, scraping toothpaste off the mirrors and wiping up puddles of ****.  Cleaning Products...good investment to consider.  

18.     They have a tendency to be fundamentally unhappy people, but have no problem drowning you in their misery while feeding on your energy until you don't know who the hell you are anymore.  Psychic leeches who have no qualms about instantly distancing themselves from you during your time of need.  Until you prove to serve a purpose to him, he'll be MIA.  If there's nothing in it for him, he's outtie.  They fundamentally lack the patience, compassion and empathy required to be supportive during a crisis when it concerns you.  Their take on this is, "I don't have time for this ****" or "I can't be around unhappy people"  So I suggest you put on your "*******" lipstick and be ready to please him with a gracious smile on your face because that's the ONLY way he wants to see you. **** your crisis.

19.     If you have children, whether his or yours from a previous relationship, he will expect you to put his needs first above theirs.  What's his, is HIS, and what's yours, is HIS.  As fathers, they're either "all over the place" in every aspect of their parenting style, "absent", or a delightful combination of both. 

20.     Everything is always everybody elses fault and they throw frequent pity parties for themselves so, you better be there with bells on because you'll surely become the object of ridicule.  Here's a fun head game. We'll call it "Fantasy Phone": Let's make his friends believe you're fighting with him on the phone so they'll think you're a complete *******. Meanwhile, he pretends to defend himself against your "imaginary argument", all the while shouting at you through the phone, "Calm down babe. [Yea, she's a little upset] It's's okay" Hello crazy mindfucker :)

21.     You will find that your children will probably not like him as he may become verbally abusive towards them when you aren't around. Or if he decides to be so bold, he'll do it while you are standing there.

22.     They pay little attention to detail on a personal level and will promptly assign little responsibilities and duties for you to carry out for them.  This is partly due to the fact that they spread themselves out so thin, they can hardly keep their crap together. 

23.     Don't you dare do something that they can bring up and smear your face in at a later date because if you do, you will NEVER hear the end of it!!!!!

24.     Nosey fux loving that drama! If you want to know what's going on between "Joe Blow" and "Suzie Cheesecake" on TV or down the street, ask a Leo man.  He'll know every dirty detail right down to tiniest bloody skidmark!  If there's something going on, e.g., a fight, a riot, a showdown, a hostage situation...these fools are right there in the middle of it filming or taking still shots.

25.     While paying little attention to detail on a personal level, they have a tendency to forget important YOUR birthday. This is especially true if he doesn't really love you.  Like most everything, it'll be half-assed. Do question missing articles of clothing, tools and such. This scatterbrain has a habit of leaving his **** at the homes of his concubines. LMAO. Take an inventory if you feel you must. Personally, I wouldn't bother.

26.     This man knows how to cook and clean.  Don't let him trick you!  Because he has YOU to do it for him, he doesn't feel he has the need to do it for himself.  This goes for anything you do for him.  But by the same token, if you don't do it for him, he'll simply find someone else who will.  

27.     They have tons of ideas and little projects going on that never seem to come together for them because they lack the self discipline to stay on task.  Supreme Procrastinators!  They put things off they'll probably never do today, tomorrow, next week, next get the picture.  I'm beginning to think they all suffer from ADHD and/or are bi-polar.   

28.     Addictive personalities. Food, drugs, *******, booze & tattoos. Whatever it may be, they indulge themselves to the extreme. Impulsive, rarely (if ever) taking into consideration how the consequences of their actions effect them, and/or everyone around them.  Generally obsessed with sex, addicted to p-o-r-n , down-low kink, and visit rosie palm on a daily basis.  In their book, there isn't a problem in the world that a good shagging can't alleviate, and as one I know likes to say, "There isn't anything a little penicillin can't cure".  If they're not doing you properly, you can best believe they're doing somebody else.    

29.     They constantly have to be reassured that they are loved (by you and everyone else in their vicinity) and often insert themselves into every aspect of your life. Inevitably, he will screw up with your family and he shall forever be disliked by them.

30.     They emulate their environment in a desperate effort to 'fit in'...sort of the way a chameleon changes color to blend into their surroundings.  Must be the center of attention at all times, so get out of the're casting a shadow on his stage. 

31.     Did I mention they're fn LAZY? Maintaining a Leo is a freaking CHORE! 

32.     Extremely flirtatious, even while you are standing next to him. They meticulously cultivate their de facto/cyber secret fan clubs (Men and Women) and go to great lengths dangling enchanting seductions, subsequently sending mixed messages to his admirers; Keeping them well within his emotional proximity. With his this being said, their desperately fragile little hearts will hang in HIS balance as they plead for clarification...just the way he likes it.       

33.     Uh, did you say something? Don't kidd yourself. They don't REALLY care about what you're talking about. They're thinking, "Shut up and take your clothes off already".  You could be telling him the most compelling story about something and he'll continue to surf the internet and text people until you shut up. Aww, how sweet. He called you "beautiful" Don't think for a moment you're special. He calls them all "beautiful" so as to avoid confusion with names. 

34.     Moving on. Everything you're talking about, at any given time, MUST be about him.  If you're on the phone and he's in the same room with you, you're obviously talking about him. He'll pester you until you get off the phone and probably interrogate you about who you were on the phone with and what you were talking about (with reference to him) 

35.     Even when they're having fun, they appear to be miserable, unless they're having sex.  Pretty good lovers...sometimes.  

36.     They're as flaky as pie crust.  Like cops, they never seem to be around when you need them most and when they are, they aren't much help to you  Their "maybes" mean NO, and "I'll see you in a few minutes" can potentially be worth a good hour or two. Doesn't matter how long you've been together, (weeks, months, years) he'll make you feel as though you have absolutely no right to ask him where he's been. Think hard.

37.     As a courtesy (oxymoron), they may ask you where you would like to go but you'll end up where ever they wanted to be initially, and that's not even certain because they kind of fly by the seat of their pants.  The only thing he can plan with certainty, is being late.  WTH, as far as he's concerned the party doesn't start until he arrives anyway.

38.     The only thing he'll know about you, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is your biorhythm.  He'll have you clocked within hours, then conveniently skulk away once you start.  They're really good at skulking.  He doesn't put much effort into your relationship until you decide you've had enough and begin to walk. Then, it's balls to the walls with text messages, phone calls and pleas for forgiveness. On other occasions, as a last resort, You may expect to receive flowers, gifts and marriage proposals. If he dumps you, then it's **** You.

39.     Cold, heartless bastards who'll ride your coat tails until they're caught with their pants down. Then they become shameless ******* with no remorse. They don't try too hard to impress you after that because they're pretty sure that you've taken as much **** as any of he other ******* have in the past, so why try. In the end, you will have meant absolutely nothing to him as he shuffles on to his next project that he was already prepping while with you. Yea, you'll see his sorry *** in a few days driving down the street with another chick in the passenger side and either pity her (not likely) or sigh in relief!

40.     Needy, spoiled, moooooody, self-absorbed, egotistical whiners. Stroke often and repeat!  Their pride is at stake...Got me?  It's all about them.  They may not be your Mr. Right, but they can certainly be your Mr. Right Now.  Instant gratification preferred.  

41.     They are easily bored with repetition/normalcy, which to them, symbolizes a form of imprisonment or stagnancy.  They have a difficult time following instructions, maintaining focus and staying the course.  Easily distracted by anything "shiny" and "fascinating" **chasing the light on the wall** Must constantly be entertained, amused and stimulated on every possible level. The band comes first baby!

42.     They lie about the dumbest **** sometimes.  You try your best to sift the truth out of the crap he just told you because buried deep within the catacombs, lies a half-truth.  When they aren't purposefully and poorly lying, they're mindlessly omitting critical pieces of information that make their bizarre stories completely logical. A few of the ONLY times you can be guaranteed the truth from a Leo man, is when they're drunk (obnoxious ******* drunks), talking in their sleep or sloppily leaving their cell phones unlocked amidst a drunken stupor :)

43.     Expounding on #42, don't try to call him out on his lie because he will surely convince even himself, that what he just told you was the absolute truth. To further insult your intelligence, he will GASLIGHT you into believing that you are bat **** crazy for even entertaining such a concept and whine about how you have such little "TRUST" in him **creeps off to the bathroom with cell phone** Ask him a direct question and he'll undoubtedly play stupid [Huh...what?], quickly change the subject or completely ignore you.  Kings of avoidance. It's never a good time to talk about anything remotely important because, well to be completely honest, you really aren't that important sweety. "I can't do this right now", "I don't want to talk about it", "This is too much for me". A stalling tactic. He's hoping this will buy him enough time for you to either forget about it, or for him to come up with something believable.

44.     You may receive a sporadic text message or random call whenever it's convenient for him, but GAWD FORBID you don't answer his calls or texts when he's trying to get in contact with you; He'll lose his ******* mind!  He may even insist on sniffing you and/or your panties to make sure you haven't been with another  This is because, since he's out ******* everything under the sun, you must be doing it too. Easily butt hurt (hyper-sensitive) when you aren't at his beck and call 24/7.  He'll need to know where you are and what you're doing at all times so he can 'conspire' around your schedule.  When you don't hear from him for a while, he's acting out his scheme.

45.     Suspicious much?  You change one little thing about your normal routine e.g., your parking spot, the placement of your furniture, spice rack arrangement, and he'll flip the **** out!  He'll formulate an elaborate scenario in his mind as to why things are the way they appear at that particular moment, and accuse you of being a liar when he confronts you about it and you tell him the truth.  Explaining yourself before he has a chance to bring it up only intensifies his suspicions so believe me, don't bother. Yes, he will rummage through all your **** when you aren't looking!    

46.     Their emotions for you tend to run hot or cold...there is no lukewarm for these guys.  One minute they can make you feel like the most beautiful goddess that ever graced the earth and the next, a worthless piece of ****. They tend to suffer from regular bouts of mysterious "confusion" which will call him away from you in every form imaginable. You'll find no reassurance here, if that is what you desire.

47.     Secretly, they are all insecure to some degree...Body dismorphic issues, alopecia, proportions, low self-esteem and take great comfort and joy in pointing out all of YOUR flaws to make them feel better about their inadequacies as a man.  Their pride feeds on your shame, and their followers fuel their egos.  His jabs against you will most likely be conveyed in jest, but you know what they say about there being a lot of truth in jest. When he begins to really hit you hard with criticism, he's gearing up for the big break. This, to ensure that he feels justified in leaving you high and dry. Saving his face is more important than you falling with grace.

48.     If your Leo man tells you that he loves you within the first week or two of dating, dump him immediately!  No conventional self-serving Leo will lay his dignity out on the line in such a short amount of time to tell YOU that he loves you.  He's looking for his next bimbo, rebound, meal ticket, past time or FOOL.

49.     They aren't prone to commital.  Your chances of dying in a plane crash are far greater than getting a proposal out of this guy.  One second they're bending over backwards to be at your side and next thing you know, they're running from you.  I swear, they get the seven (7) year itch about every three months and you're left in the dark wondering what the hell is going on in their zippy little heads.  Wake up honey. It'll come to you.

50.     No matter how much you give of your heart, mind, body and soul, forever present will be an element of darkness shrouded by an impenetrable emotional barrier.

Im not sure about the relationship aspect of the Leo, as I don't think I have dated one, bit my brother AND my step son are both Leos. I try so hard to be compassionate and love them, but they are NOT nice people. All they care about is themselves. They throw pity parties about EVERYTHING as if the entire world revolves around, yet is against, them.
My step son, I've been with his dad for 4 years. When I first met his youngest son (the Leo) he was so kind and sweet and I thought Awww thank goodness I don't have a difficult child to live with, but as soon as he became comfortable with me.... Oh god. Lazy, manipulative, mean, cruel are just a few words to sum up this poor excuse for a human. If you knew me, you would know I would NEVER feel the desire or need to say this about anyone, let alone a child..... But this kid is the devil reincarnated.
Everyone else is only there to serve him. Nothing is ever good enough for him. Spend $500 on him for his birthday?
"My brother got this and that blah blah blah" and he spends the while day crying and pissed off because it didn't live up to his impossible standards.
Everyone else helping make dinner, and knows they are expected to help clean up after themselves ?
He'll spend 3 hours sitting on the floor crying LOUDLY trying to make everyone else feel bad for him after they are long done their chores and gone off having fun.
This is the kid that refused to wipe his butt and walked around with crap in his pants every day until his dad had to start going to the bathroom with him and forced him to. This kid is going to have a ****** life, full of self pity and misery. His tombstone will read " how could this happen to me? "
We fight every weekend because of this little **** (excuse the language and hostility. I've tried everything to be kind and compassionate and help this kid out with his feelings. He wants none of it) to the point where I'm about to have my second child with father, but we're talking about splitting up because there is nothing I haven't tried or can do to get along with this kid.

And yes. It was exactly the same story living with my brother. I'm just glad I was 9 when he was born so I never had to spend my entire childhood and teenage years around that kid. Watching him sit on his *** and boss my poor mom around.

I hate Leo's because they are all the same. I feel it's not just a Scorpio woman who said all this, but I'm sure most people can agree. This information hits the jackpot. If you date a Leo man, you find out very quickly just how lousy they are in the love department. It's been there and done that for me. I have a brother who is a Leo and he's a nightmare! Just wished he'd join the army, so he'd value his family a lot more, instead of ruining his life selling drugs!

Thank you for this. I recently nearly got involved with Leo man but something just never seemed quite right. He gave me mixed messages, got drunk every time I saw him, talked about how awful his ex was, continually complained about everything when he was drunk and just laughed or belittled my comments. His looks, charm, talent and bubblyness kept me dangling there. Also my insecurities. Nothing really materialised and I kind of knew that was the right thing. Reading your thing has really struck a chord with me. I felt that most of what you said there was how he was but couldn't trust my instinct because the veneer was so 'lovable'. Thanks for this, it has helped a lot :)

Smart lady! run for the hills!!! with my leo ex i always felt like something was off/not quite right. (read him)All 50 of these statements are TRUE!!! When we first started dating I found this site and could only agree to a small part of it but nothing too time went on I would re-read this and would discover he was like alot more of this list and by the end he was ALL if this!!!!! He is 51 and never flag!!! he wass 49 when we met. VERY good-looking, charming..Selfish, temper tantrums, bait and swith..blah blah...what a liar he turned out to be! I feel so strongly about this list not only about my ex but guys friends of mine that are also leos...all the f'ing same. I would never set any of these guys up with my friends but perhaps my worst enemy ;)

the funny thing is, is that what made me re-read this tonight was that I was just texting my leo friend who i've know for 15+ yrs..and he just got married not even 2 yrs ago and was being totally inappropriate in his I expect this from him because i know him but he is now married and he told me his wife has been having trust issues with him recently and and not sure why because he was being good!!! well u better be! ur married now! I thought to myself..I kinda feel bad for her because he acts likes he's a great catch with his **** together (but he's not!!!) it's all about him!!! Very charming but once u scratch past the veneer you'll see otherwise.

I believe she's right about many things when it comes to a Leo man they are notorious liars but I don't believe that they are all Cheaters and High maintenance. My Leo comes from a great family and I know he wouldn't cheat. Period! He is delusional sometimes and thinks he walks on water but it take a strong mind in order to have a mind ******* battle with a Leo, if you are weak he will eat you alive but if you are strong you can tame a Leo. My Leo is a great partner and will be a great father (we are expecting ). I am happy with my man but I will say it can be freaking exhausting having to maintain a Leo.
I do agree with a lot she says though. They think they are God's of the zodiac, they feel as of they have it all but don't realize they are they're own most biggest flaws.

Good luck!!!

This is very worrying. I'm a Leo guy and for most of my life I've avoided serious relationships like the plague, mostly because I've always had the strong belief in fixing/being yourself before sharing who you are with another person.I recently, and rather quite quickly, got involved with a wonderful woman who means the world to me, I knew what I was getting into and can honestly say that I felt I had reached the point in which I felt I was pretty good guy. Now after reading this list I realize I'm not that special at all, with respect to aspects essential for sustaining relationships. I'm just a regular guy.I don't know what happened. I had a system for myself in which any part of myself that caused myself, or others, unnecessary pain would have to go but I just can't seem to do this at the rate I used to.Don't get me wrong, I feel that most of the things on this list are gross generalizations and simply d don't apply to me but then there are those things that if I take a brutal look at myself, do. And I just don't ******* get it.I want to say that pretty much since I've met her I've been under a constant state of stress and panic which makes it difficult for me to step outside myself and assess my shortcomings; only I've been in tough situations before and have thrived. Now the only things I do for self betterment are relentlessly pursuing promotions and pay raises, but I know myself and those kinds of things I couldn't care less about. I want to be using my mind again, thinking about ways to help people, being inspired by music and other people but I can't ******* do it because it feels that part of my brain has shut down.I'm bitching in this section because I know this is a Leo trait and I feel situations like these are the root cause for many, if not all, the shortcomings you listed.I'm not depressed and I don't think I'm the wrong man for my woman I just feel that I'm not doing all I can, not being the person I have the potential to becoming and if I let that realization eat me up I will become the most horrid and evil person the world has ever seen.I am also blessed with extreme bouts of good luck as well as equally bad. I'm not even joking. The fact that I even got the woman in with now as soon as I did is testament to my good luck. I'm rambling now and there was a main idea that was going to tie all this together but I forgot it.Anyway, the most revolting people are usually those who have the most problems. Leos don't have a monopoly on problems, they just manifest them differently. Not all Leos are like this and not only Leos are like this.

You poor thing!! None of us are 'perfect' but you cannot put your life on hold just because you haven't reached that perfect state of being. Live a little, or life is going to pass you by. Do you want to be 70 yrs old and never had a meaningful relationship with anyone because you are so afraid of comittments? Payraises and promotions are a mere ought to look deeper.

Wow, all I hear from you is me, me, me in your comment. How melodramatic! Maybe you've had too much manipulation on other women that now when other women don't buy your **** you have to make others feel sorry for you? Pay back is a ***** and you're starring in it!

I found my answer tonight, been in a relationship with a leo for two bhai years and Im a scorpio....I can finally get some rest, you said it best!!!!!

I could have written that myself only mine would have included horrible oglers who objectify women.

Omg! Totally! Mine couldn't stop staring at other women's butts right in front of me. What a jerk!!

Oh i so agree with u here...i'm dating this leo man..n we recently moved in together...n it has been hell!!!!
It was all fine in the beginning ,even amazing if i may say so. BUT NOW!! Now his true colours show.
He will never listen to my side of the argument, he will never do his share of chores, he will make stupid excuses to no do ''my hands will get dirty''. He soils all the dishes in the kitchen n not be bothered to clean them, he won't spend a penny on food n binge on what i get from the stores..he lives for himself n no one else...its as if i dont exist for him..but if he's horny then i have to be present, even if i dont want to. n every time i will raise an issue..he will twist it to make it my mistake n incapacity. i hate leo men.
And check out his audacity.. he has well clarified that he is not interested in marrying me...that his mother wont approve of it..n when i say that lets not carry it on then, then he accuses me of mentally tormenting him..and says that if all is going on well then why breakup.. ''ALL IS WELL!!'' He's got to be kidding, right. What the hell is wrong with this person.
And the worst part...i dont know what to do to break up with him. FML.

Tell him to **** off. That will get his attention. Few years from now you will look back on it and pat yourself on the back. They will abuse you only if you let them.

I can only speak from my experience with Leo men and this post speaks the absolute truth.

Me, Me, Me, that's Leo man's motto. He was also petty as hell, pouting because he felt I left more food on the stove for my daughter than what he got (which wasn't even the case). Seriously, who gets jealous over a child and some food?

Even when he tried to be a generous person, he always reverted to his selfish ways. Being truly giving just doesn't come naturally for him.

He was always accusing me of cheating on him. Turns out, HE was the one that couldn't be trusted (caught him in a baldfaced lie).

I agree that Leo men are dashing, but the sex, while it can be good at first, quickly becomes a one-man show. For this reason, contrary to popular opinion, I don't rate Leo as highly in the bedroom as I do Scorpio and Gemini. My Leo was too caught up in himself and it spilled over into the bedroom.

So relieved he's out of my life now. He was emotionally and physically exhausting.

Wow that was extremely informative helpful ...I have done this natal chart on this dude and he has leo in his raising, mars, sun, Venus, and Capricorn Moon I have spent 8 months on line talking to him and this has certainly helped me see the red flags. .thank you

Ha ha LOOOOL, brilliant :-D

I'm not too late to the party am I? Hi, I am a Leo man. Please ladies calm down. No need to show your claws. I am only passing through.

Saw this blog and am amaze at the response. I am ashamed to be a Leo. I am sorry for what my sign put you through. For the most part you are right.

We are extroverted and warm, dedicated and dreamers. We spend more time in the clouds than on Earth. We do promise the moon only if we become inspire. We are humble when appreciated and lost when we lose your attention. We are loyal ‘til death unless betrayed. We never demand appraisals but believe asking should not be require.

We live for appreciation. We are full of love. Our ego bruises easily, so why taunt us? You know you can hurt us. We are emotional. We are spiritual. We like to believe in true love. We believe that there is a happily ever after. We want our relationships to be perfect. No arguments. No differences.

We believe in our view of perfect harmony. We are clean in contrast to this blog. Cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing and guarding is the trade mark of a good Leo. We are the perfect gentleman when are raised in a proper environment. We are good dressers.

Excuse my forwardness I am throwing dating advice now… Never date a man whose fashion sense involves a t-shirt and jeans. Ah… Please don’t twist my words. Every man has to have a t-shirt and jeans outfit. Otherwise we would be naked while doing our laundry.

Never date a man whose vocabulary originates from a music video or from sappy love songs. If the man has more than two credit cards chances are he has less than a thousand dollars in his accounts.

Don’t expect Mr. Perfect Leo to come from a bar. We go to bars for one thing. We practice sex constantly. So expect to have lots of it when you are in a relation with a Leo.

Don’t use headaches as a pretext. We will believe you have lost interest and move on. Be honest with us. Tell the truth. Lying only extenuates our reason to leave. Truth begets truth.

I am 29 years old. I have travelled the world and had many relationships. Some of my exes want me dead others have moved on. Some I still rarely wonder ‘what if?’ and I don’t keep in touch with the rest.

I am not perfect and it bugs me. God put me in this world for one reason; to be a perfect man. And this is probably my ego talking (we have big egos), but I want to be a perfect man. My wife laughed when I told her.

Oh yes, I am married, a three year old boy (so cute), house, mortgage, salary, but no dog. I like the stares my wife gets when women see us walking down town. And why shouldn't she get those stares I work hard for my body.

I love how other men stare at my wife. She has this energy and looks stunning in dresses. She always compliments me when other women become envious. My wife and I have amazing energy together. We show it at every party.

I am close with my female friends and outgoing with my male ones. My friends range in signs; Leos, Aquarius, Scorpions, and Arieses. My wife is an Aquarius. We belong together. So again, I am sorry you haven’t met your perfect Leo. We are out there. Keep searching. Or maybe I am just a broken Leo.

Roque5 while I can respect what you're seem to be one of the more evolved or "mature" leos (and I'm not referring to age). I've unfortunately have yet to meet one, every leo I've met/ dated/ befriended etc were all characteristic of everything written in this post. Even my aquarian ex (with venus and moon in leo) had all these traits but less pronounced. I know I'm not without my own flaws and perhaps being a sagittarius gal myself maybe there was too much fire to begin with but I know I will never, EVER date another leo man again. They're lying, egotistical self-righteous a*holes. I pity them..........they look so lost and foolish. So very foolish.

Glad you're happy with your aqua girl. Long May that last. I'm an aqua girl and I've been in love with a Leo man for 16 years. But he cheated on me, lied to me and used me is many times. I have to move on because he's not in love with me like I am with him. It just makes me sad. But it is what it is. Thanks for sharing your story. I enjoyed reading it. But for me, even though I am loyal to my Leo, this blog is right down to a tee. I wonder why you're so different

Wow it's so true i just dumped my leo yesterday but he's so into ones he hasn't realized it yet. He told me he loved me on our second date as he pretended to be upset because he made me waite in the car for him to long...haha crazy. At best we will end up as friends with no benefits. He'll call me for advise while he dogs out another women. I'm almost certain and ill just laugh and smh. It's was only a month for us but it was a long month.

Get over yourself. LOL

Jennifurby, are you sure we've haven't date the same guy? lol...I mean--seriously. It seems to me like you are talking about my most recent ex. OMG. You have pinned him down to the core. Wow. Thanks for sharing. I thought I was the one crazy. I have never seen anyone so mentally disorganized in my life. He drank like a fish, criticized me like he was some kind of god, took as much as he could from me---including the petty stuff like left over food in the fridge. Wow, girl, you described my ex.

OMG! I read this and for a minute thought I must've written this in my sleep and posted it. All of the above is so true. I was a victim of a Leo man for 16+ off/on years. Yes off/on. Like you said, no lukewarm with him. We have children so that is why I tried to hold on to this lonely relationship. I was in this relationship alone. He would run out on me and our kids and go home to live with his mother at a drop of a dime. He'd leave a job on a lunch break and never go back to work. He's had 26 jobs in 11 years. No commitment to anything. Not me, our kids, a job, nada. I have never felt so alone except whenever he was around. I would try to express to him my concerns and worries and before I knew it I was being shushed and the topic would now be him. What his plans were. How he was going to do this or that. I would express to him that with our budget we'd need to wait and of course his money was his money and my money was his money. A Leo man will keep you broke. He'd dang near have you homeless. When things get that severe he'd abandon you for safety at his mama's house. Then when you financially recover after working your behind off, he'd sweet talk you and weasel his way back into your life - only to suck more marrow from your bones. They are leeches. They are infectious men. They are like a cancer on your body. No matter how much chemo they will try their darnedest to overtake all of you. I am mentally spent. I have had to undergo psychotherapy while/after dealing with the Leo man. I really appreciate this post. What I find hilarious is that when I broke it off with him he's the one who emailed me your 50 things that you hate about your Leo man. He read it and responded that obviously this is his nature due to his sign and he plans to make changes in himself. Ha! Right! We know that is just another line for self pity and excuse for his behavior. Again thanks for your posting. . .

He send you the post playing head games with me he know "Himself". Thank "God" or your "Higher Power" for releasing you from that "Narcissistic" man. You better "Run" like hell, he will destroy you and your children....he only care about himself.

"OMG! I read this and for a minute thought I must've written this in my sleep and posted it. All of the above is so true."
Yes! Me too.
"I would try to express to him my concerns and worries and before I knew it I was being shushed and the topic would now be him."
Ohmg yes. He ALWAYS does that. I started wondering if maybe that was my fault, and started doubting myself ( which I never do... ).

Oh, what's wrong with those human felines?

Thank you for this post!!! I'm a scorpion woman and had two encounters with Leo males & all the above were true. It was a lifesaver last night when I came across this - about to break down by his hot & cold nature.. Reading this I told him to f*** off!
Thank you!!!!!!! :) xxx

So true, I was with a Leo for 2 1/2 years. I lost my virginity to this scrub. Ended up just recently bearing him a handsome little boy who he says he loves but wasn't there the day he was born and hasn't seen him in over a month now. Not to mention he cheated on me on Christmas Eve to go sleep with a sloppy bartender who he's been talking to since my 2nd trimester of my pregnancy. He told me not to go on birth control that he couldn't have kids and that it would hurt our chances of having kids. That if I got pregnant we would be together. But he later on admited that my pregnant body wasn't doing it for his "manly" urges. Called me ugly and that his new gf is prettier. Ughhhh Leo men are true scum. He denies coming back to me, begging that I give him another chance even though I have proof of those messages. His dog is always at someone else's house. Almost everything on this list is true.

It's the "Truth" about those useless Leo men....they live to destroy and kill the spirit of women. Thank "God" he's out of your life!

This is all true. We're unforgetable sexmachines.

Not true. The other day I saw a 100 yr. old giant male tortoise humping his female. The zookeeper said he had been grunting & groaning & going at it non-stop for 4 days. Now that, is an unforgettable sex machine. But wait, i bent down to check and his ego was not as big as yours. You win. :)

You're right...."Self-Gratification"! Don't get it are something that a decent woman never want to see again! All leo men should come with a "Warning Sign"! "RUN"!!!

I 100% AGREE. My ex was Venus in Leo and this is all accurate

50 Shades To Hell With A Leo Man.....!

We must be talking about the same guy!! It's not impossible considering how the Leo who dumped me operates.

Absolutely SPOT ON!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm an Aries female and many Leo's have been drawn to me over the years. the last one should've warned me to put on a condom on my head before he mind ****** me. Selfish, PLAYERS, all of them, ones I've met anyone, friends or lovers alike. They do have a commitment phobia and are womanizers. When they are going after you they are chivalrous, charming, romantic, will say anything to get your attention, chase you to the ends of the earth but watch out! don't reciprocate, they'll dip out as fast as they came onto you in the first place. sta far away if you want to keep your mind and dignity intact.

Lol...lotta nasty bitterness here. You know, sometimes if you wind up with the wrong person it's better to ask what is it about yourself that attracts the kind of man described above. If you wind up with lice, chances are you need a bath.

Or maybe you guys are just drawn to abusive men.

what is this profession of trying to find a man?

Ask the majority of single women.

yes best to just accept we are all individual humans.

Awe. Poor baby. Butthurt because he's identifying with some characteristics? Well, I suppose he has some issues to deal with on his own with regard to his interpretation of what is written here. Nowhere did I read that EP was about FACT. It's about experiences. However anyone chooses to interpret them, depends solely on them. Lay with dogs and you end up with fleas. Meanwhile, "By crooked steps, right behind you" Peace out!

Poor baby?....hehehe. I'm not the one spilling the-daddy-issues-I-carried-into-my-relationships all over the internet and lashing out when I feel threatened. I hope you get better. Peace to you as well.

Wrote this piece in 2009 and it's rather comical that most recently you felt the urge to create a profile shell in defense of a cold shot. Nice to know that after all these years, it still captures the attention of people who relate, in any small measure. And by the way, thank you for your contribution. The mere fact that you felt compelled to respond, speaks volumes. Maybe remnants of a Jacosta/Oedopis thingy you got going on there (Shake it off Sean) lmao, whatever. Little slow on the uptake though as we near 60k views. Beyond better in 2014. Deuces :)

I was just blowing some time away (business is really slow this time of year at my job and the internet is all I have). A lady I'm talking to is really into astrology (she's a leo) but I always kinda dismissed it. Wanting to be open minded, I decided to take a deeper look and started reading up on her sign and came across your post. I thought your post and the back and forth responses were kinda like a joke, but slowly realized they are not. Now I'm not trying to preach or tell you or anyone how to live life, but feelings of bitterness, cynicism, and anger are like gizmo, if you water them, they turn into gremlins. You're an above average person in your intelligence and insight into people, but trying to demonstrate that with textbook assertions about the psychological failings of others is a waste of it, and YOU know that (c'mon, Oedipus...for real?). You have a lot to offer, but this kind outlet doesn't serve you well. Trust me, I know from experience. BTW, my name isn't Sean Cole, it's Ibrahim El-Amin. Sean Cole was gonna be my pen name back when I thought I'd be a great writer one day. Don't water the gremlins, water the gardens. In all sincerity, I wish you peace and love. Good luck.

In all actuality, I do appreciate your sincerity. In honesty, the writing served its purpose in that I was able to expel some dark feelings that otherwise could have manifested in ways harmful to myself or perhaps...who knows. It was very healing, believe it or not. Thanks IEA

My word this truly has hit a nerve with you. The 50 points above are just a generalisation something we all show signs of however but most of us are ashamed of them and do something about it.

Huh! I thought u get lice by getting too close to a scumbag.
Point is, there are women of various zodiac signs posting here, but the common denomintor seems to be bad Leo behavior each one of them has experienced at some point. I'm sure that said particular experience scarred them more deeply than others, because even though there are scum men & women in all signs, Leos are the worst. Its their audacity and gall to play games in order to benefit themselves, ...the pretense, lack of a conscience, that is truly disappointing and hurtful. Women are often too trusting. I knew a Leo, only for a brief period, but I have enough sense now not to repeat that mistake. I am in a very stable relationship now for several yrs. with a non-leo, so, 'No, we don't always attract the abusive louse.'

Lice isn't caused by bad hygiene but, yeah I get what your saying.

it sounds like the predator and the pray

@ JourneeBlue...Lice is a parasite that live on various animals, including humans, animals don't keep their hygiene up, so lice come from "Filth".

Narcissistic men (Leo) wear masks to fool the person, they don't even know who the hell they are....

I'm a Leo man and I'll be honest I don't think your describing us at all! I am very clean, more often than not I strive to be the best and do the best for my partner. I was with a girl for 4 months or so as a kind of dating and see how it goes thing but in that time I treated her like a princess, I would never even dream of making a mess of her place, in fact I offered to fix some things for her and hang the TV on the wall etc. I run three business which are all doing well and had, touch wood, no financial difficulties. This is derogatory to men of this Zodiac sign and your painting us in a bad light. I'd love to know what zodiac sign you are so I go to town on that the way you have done here.

On an aside. The character described above is that of a narcissistic sociopath, not in fact a true Leo man. The girl in question was engaged to a Leo before she met me and I'll be honest he seems to fit that personality. I'm sorry you had such a rough experience but I wouldn't tar us all with the same brush, so to speak.

Oh wow. Between the age of 18 and 21, are you? Three successful businesses you say? Let me guess...paper route, lawn mower, sign flipper, baby/pet sitter, pooper scooper, lemonade stand, car washer or maybe even a caddy? We'll good for you! Whatever your hustle, go get 'em tiger. At least you show some initiative. That's very impressive to notate. I'm sure "YOU'RE" going to go far. You are still a very young, sweet, impressionable man with many eventful relationships to come. Come talk to me in another 35 years son. Peace.

@Jennifurby....he/she haven't lived long speak the truth about Leo men, see the truth hurts. Their ego is so big they don't take time out to look at the man in the mirror...they're focusing on destroying someone else's life. They are straight up "Donkey's".

^^^^^ Well if this is maturity, stay away from it, tiger.

If you can't stand the "Heat" in the kitchen, get the "Hell" out....Leopard! A leopard (leo) don't change their "Spots".....

If you were nice to her & such a great catch with 3 successful businesses, why didn't this girl stick around? Maybe she saw history repeating itself? Would love to hear her side of this story. She seems to be attracted to Leos in particular.

Are these responses serious or is this a joke? If you ladies are telling the truth about your experiences then you should keep in mind that they are just that...YOUR experiences and not objective truth. If Leo men are so horrible, why is it that you all seem to have such extensive experience with them? If you end up with these kinda guys, don't blame them for it.

yep that sure is a leo type reply .

You couldn't even begin to put it into words. You lack the experience and discernment...look it up.

I really needed to run into this! Now , I get what's been going on!

Follow your instincts. They'll never steer you wrong.

I totally identify wid wat u'v said bout leos. No more leos for

What a relief! I thought I was going crazy! I am a Libra woman who attracts many Leo women friendships. I am an air sign and leos are fire, fire needs air. Their friendships are amazing at first then they become mentally and physically draining. They are always needing something and are never around when you need them I have broken 2 friendships off cause I started losing myself in the one sided friendship in their favor. I knew what was happening and see the same similar action and behaviors in all leos but am still drawn to them. My recent Leo friend drives me insane with her sneaky behavior and that's how I came acrossed this blog. I goggle d are Leo's sneaky and came acrossed this I decided to read it anyways even though it was about male Leo's and since I have a Leo male teenager and I had dated a few Leo men in the past I continued on to reading it and I got to say this is spot on everything I felt and witnessed are dead on they relate in male or female Leo's I have put this all together in mind but reading it confirmed my thoughts. It said male s will leave their dirty laundry out for you to pick up but my female friend will actually bring over a dish or two of food I will say hey don't forget your dishes and she will always reply back with "that's alright ill come back later for it" she does this so I will wash the dishes for her and so she can come back in her own convenience to pick it up and free load some more. I feel used and like a Libra I am a total push over but feel slightly balanced enough with the little of the littlest things they give they throw me a bone and I throw back a fat healthy cow lol Anyways Thank You for this much needed 411 I will proceed my relationships with leos with caution lol

I date a Leo man.. and more than 90% of what you said doesn't apply to him. We have been together for over 15 years. You pick the wrong men.

I suppose you like pain n abuse to stay with your leo ? or perhaps you found the 1% that is a good guy? poor Jennifurby got one of the 99% s**t heads.

I mean no disrespect in correcting you my dear fmina, but I write of a very long laundry list of Leo men. Friends, boyfriend(s), lover(s), husband(s), employer(s). I hate to break it to you Cox, but my experiences reach far beyond that ONE shithead you refer to.

My feeling go out to you but I'm still suffering them "& there's not much of an escape me yet " so excuse the the intense language I'm using it's difficult but I'm evolving and hope will eventually be able to fly above all this.
have a good one.

Hey let's get a 50 Things I Love About Leo Men. It's only fair. Just remember that Leos have to deal with their egos and self righteous nature more than any other sign in the zodiac. So don't be too hard on them. The ego is already influential and impossible to please as it is. Now imagine being a Leo and having to deal with it, they do after all love attention and admiration and being stroked with praise. All of which associate with the ego. All fire signs can relate to this but, Leos got it most because they are ruled by the beautiful Sun. I will always admire Leos. They got a lot to deal with and when they use their endless inner strength and determination, they always succeed, always. As the sun gives life, the Leo gives life to their dreams and shows us all that it can be done.

You got 2: inner strength & determination. 48 still to go. May I add 'determination to get what he wants even if it means being a total ******* and stepping on people.' You dont get to the top by being nice. LoL

Not all Leo men are the same, they're not all all about appearance and arrogant and ruthless to others.
Just as Sagittarius's are not all liars and players and Libras are not all gullible and people pleasers and Aquariuses are not all aloof and cold and Tauruses are not all lazy and possessive and Cancers are not all manipulative and clingy and Scorpios are not all resentful and dark and Geminis are not all indecisive and superficial etc...
They do have the tendencies according to the Zodiac, but it doesn't make it written in stone!

Well, Judging by your comment, It is apparent to me that you haven't read my other stories which contradict this bloggy (to some extent) and point out many endearing qualities in the Leo man. I would recommend reading it.


ummm can't think of more than one .

once again a sneaky leo male has found a victim. He will suck the life force out of you while thinking about his next woman and as for finding something nice about them I can only think of one they make me laugh .

well said... :)
