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 you're "imaginary argument", all the while shouting at you through the phone, "Calm down babe. [Yea, she's a little upset] It's okay...it'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 dates...like 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 year...you 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 way...you'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 anyway...lol.  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 t walk. Then, it's balls to the walls with text messages, phone calls and pleas for forgiveness. On other occasions, as a last resort, I've received 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 because they're pretty sure you've taken as much **** as 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. 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 man...lol.  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 solidity 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.

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 you.....trust 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!

You might consider an update post to let us all know how fabulously life has gone for you since dumping your Mr. Leo, Jennifurby. And I hope it has.

My opinions regarding the various natures of people, whether it be astrological or otherwise is that it is a human necessity to focus on the most negative aspects of the person to get over them more quickly. And that perhaps all of this Leo bashing has overlooked a worthy point. That for all the extremes that one can point out in somebody if they are really being honest about them...there are both positives and negatives. It all depends upon what you decide to dwell on. And the very idea that all people of this zodiac or all people of that zodiac are game players. Or cheaters. Or manipulators. Or anything else is simply issuing the others some sort of immunity for those rotten traits, while inferring that there are none with the good traits in this or that zodiac. Since about 90% of the defamation I am reading against LEO (myself) here I might put some stock in if I didn't know myself better, I feel a little bad for your being misled about millions of possibles on the basis of a microscopic sample. I wouldn't think to try to alter your perceptions. I do however want to assert my belief that men and women are far more relevant than puppets to the constellations, and that the whole of the pseudo science called astrology was never meant as an outward projections guide or decision making tool. In order for anything like this to be of any value at all one must use it to help them understand themselves. For what good does it do to study and trace other's your entire life when you could be using it to improve you? If that is possible. Just a thought.

Seriously, you are far too evolved. Don't you think?

Nupe. Me just a playful wittle kittin. I don't know nuttin about relations and therefore, not evolved by a moment. That's how men are Jennifurby. We stay how we are unless we decide to change ourself. That's what women find such a challenge and adorable.

Understand your point. But this is not a 'microscopic' sample as you suggest - rather it is large no. of various zodiac signs who seem to have a common (highly negative) experience with a leo man. Why are these women having such a strong reaction towards a leo male? Explain that. You cannot clap with one hand.

It's a relevant observation that people who end relationships require methodologies in order to cope with the emotional hindrances associated with an ended relationship. One of those coping tools is the very obvious misery loves company aspect of seeking people who you percieve has similar misfortunes as your own. Thats the foundation of every support group, after all. As for the use of a title, Zodiac, it is not very difficult to point out picayune events while remaining in denial about ones own failings, and attribute any kind of conduct as causational. Relevance is really not all that important if it cements the original erroneous hypothesis. The hypothesis in this case is that A-every zodiac Sign1 and Sign2 relationship has the same dynamic and therefore the same cause of failure. The hypothesis is not just improbable. It is a mathematical impossibility even if all couples were from one of the countless religious ethnic cultural economic age and age offset or any of the other major factors in maturity and personality features.

In short, it's just a prop. And not a very good one. Almost all relationships fall apart from a breech of trust. No zodiac has the monopoly on that. Anything else you want to ask feel free to reveal your own sign and sex. It never hurts to know something about the person challenging my reasoning. I don't want to infer or give any impressions that are negative or talk out of depth. Okay?

You said it right - "Almost all relationships fall apart from a breach of trust." It seems from the various responses in this forum that a Leo male's actions and behaviors bring on this distrust faster than any other sign. (That's been my experience & I'm sure other posters would agree. --and no, I am not a distrustful single female; I am in a solid relationship with a non-Leo). If your reasoning was accurate, then according to these posts, a Leo cannot be compatible with Scorpio, Aries, Saggi, Taurus, Aquarius, Cancer females (did I miss any). That must really limit a Leo's options. But it is irrelevant, as Leos are probably most compatible with themselves.

And I was happily married to an Aquarius who had a problem with being loyal, fireflii. Your evidence is either bad or I am a Huge exception and I don't really care which. All of this only constitutes flawed reasoning and prejudice.

I don't much care for it.

Aww! You seem upset. Did I ruffle that mane just a little bit? In typical Leo fashion, you have summed up this discussion by saying, "i really don't care." ... My point exactly!

If this forum was about misery loving company, what made you click on it in the first place? Per your own advice, were you being introspective, trying to figure out your causational behavior in your failed relationships or were you angry because your Aquarian smashed your ego?

Would you call a forum by pregnant women, parents with ADHD kids or baby boomers coping with their parents' Alzheimers, as 'misery loves company?' There is more to it. As social beings we humans like to discuss common issues we may be facing. How abt forums by AA, travel junkies, computer techies trying to get answers? This forum has been particulary insightful for me because I was able to finally understand that it was not ALL my fault, that I was not the only one imagining the behavorial issues my ex Leo displayed, learning how others are dealing with leos, and finally, understanding the Leo behavior pattern itself.

Perhaps you should start a forum for Leos, called "Relationship 101: How to think beyond 'I, Me, and Myself." "What's in it for Me?," you ask? Its quite simple - Empathy, falling in love with someone wholeheartedly, unconditional love, and lending a helping hand without expecting a reward, brings far greater satisfaction, peace, balance, stability, and harmony in life, than feeding an inflated ego, amassing wealth and materialistic or superficial things. You may actually be surprised by how many Leos chime in on your forum. Try it if you really are serious about learning. I wish you the best life has to offer :)

Okay. I see you are also a mind reader so then I won't bother telling you the answers to the questions you seem to already know all the answers to. I can't attribute your utterly condescending lack of kindness toward me or elevation of all things not connected to a zodiac sign with astrology so I guess I lose what you refuse to see is not an argument, but an exchange of opinions. I have a good reason for being here, by the way and it has nothing to do with me forming the kinds of hostile reactionary thoughts you seem to be projecting onto me. You don't know me, Fireflii. You only think you do. And since nothing seems to be getting across to you the way it's intended, I will bid you farewell and wish you likewise. Goodbye to you and anyone else who feels it conforting to join in your campaign of defamation against people born in the months of July August on the days you deem are the wrong ones. smh.

You don't know the "Answer"! Hahahahaha!

PREACH, FIREFLII!!!

If you would read the responds of Givuparedy to Fireflii....you would understand what I'm saying. The other answer is to "Fireflii" because she/he is speaking the "Truth".

I'm not excited....he don't know what he's talking about. He's a "Leo"....living in his fantasy world.

I thank you fmina. Both for taking my side in this in my unawares. And for the kind compliment of referring to me in flattering terms. It was very kind and good hearted of you and I would have done the same for you if the situation were reversed.


Realsoul4. You disagree with what I said. I know now that you think that there are exactly 12 different ways that people conduct themselves. And you know I think otherwise. Let me know if I "don't know what [I'm] talking about" if I said something inaccuarate here. You seem so powerfully intellected. I think I'm seeing the light. Oh wait............ Nope........ Lost it again. Lol.

I'm thankful to have read this because now I know that I'm not crazy. I was with a leo man for 2 and a half years and it has been pure hell; emotionally, mentally. In the beginning he showed me everything to make me feel wanted and special. He stopped at nothing to make me happy. But he is a compulsive liar, a womanizer worse than you could imagine. Everything seemed ok, but last year I guess he suddenly became bored bc he made an instagram and started to talk to other girls and especially one in particular that all along I always felt was the one who got away. Of course he lied about it and drove me crazy. He became this demonic, cruel, self absorbed, ******* that I didn't know could exist. He has hurt me to the core in every way a person could possibly be hurt. And to this day he calls or txts me and says he wants to be with me but shows me nothing. So this made me feel a lot better knowing that as delusional as he swears I am, that I'm not. thank you.

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 twisted....you 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.

Poor Leos. They're so bad that ordinary human explanations can't explain how the mistakes in their relationships happened. You have to leave the planet and examine the positions of the stars in order to explain why perfect humans, who discover how godlike and scarey they are, the vile Leo creatures vicious ways. Thank you Irene. Good nite Marge.

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 enough...you 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 me....man/woman....

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.

kk

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 .

I am a Leo male and I must admit this is me I'm verbally abusive I don't think I know what love is never thought it had anything to do with my sign just thought all of it came from my up bringing I'm a no nonsense person I get along well with other Leo's because I understand them I'm very loyal when I have a reason to be I don't kiss *** don't want u to kiss mines either I just wanna be happy and left alone at times I go all out for those I love care for I buy the best gifts and expect the same in return I'm a leader not a follower like other lame *** signs lay off the Leo's we are cool people we take no **** opinions are like ******** everybody got 1 it's crazy stuff about every sign there lame when it comes to Leo's I am lion hear me ROAR!!!!!!!! Btw I love everything she said bout Leo men I needed to hear that better insight

"I'm very loyal when I have a reason to be." Hmmm... sometimes u leos just put your foot in ur mouth with ur statements, or do you not see it?

What are you saying? You're admitting you're a "Narcissistic *******"? Gifts? They are selfish and give lousy *** gifts because they only think of themselves. Keep "Roaring" somebody is going to knock your "Block" off. Hahahahaha! You talking about you want to be left alone...if people got any sense at all, they wouldn't f&*k with your ***. You should have a warning sign on your forehead that read "Mess with at your own risk"!!

PREEEEEEEACH!! Lol! I am a female Aquarius and I believe I have reached an end with two "friends" who both fall under this sign. I've been cool with both of them for a few years. These two have never met and whenever I would talk about one to the other…how ironic that they both didn't like the sound of each other. Probably because they can sense each others BS. They couldn't be anymore alike...love the same sports teams, constantly put on self-pity parties, constantly bandwagon onto my ideas and never contribute (and in return get jealous when I no longer include their lazy *****) and they certainly don't give a damn about me because everything HAS to be about them! Both have left me hanging to run off to someone else that could possibly "put them on" to something. I believe this saying suites well for male Leos -

"There's something wrong with your character if opportunity controls your loyalty."

I'll be damned if they know anything about loyalty either. I've known other male Leo's and I wasn't friends with them but they were pretty much the same. My sister is a Leo and I can say female Leo's are the true representatives of this sign. Female Leos are fun, outgoing, outspoken, daring and loyal to the max. Males suck a$$.

To also add…my best friend of 12yrs is also a Leo. Again…female Leos are awesome! lol.

I love my loyal Leo women friends. It seems they are always the ones who get screwed over by men though. Have you noticed that, or is it just me?

I have :(

Both my sister and best friend are good hearted people. I mean, everyone has baggage (just gotta find someone who will help you carry it and vice versa) but I have seen them go above and beyond to keep their significant others satisfied. Their relationships either ended up with their partners being unfaithful or just taking advantage of them. My sister says that I give people the benefit of the doubt whereas she doesn't but…I think female Leo's don't like to admit that they do.

I couldn't even begin to explain how accurate this is about the Leo guy I was with!! Never again with them , never

strange how true this is all round the world it seems?

Your words scream bitterness! As a Leo, I am thankful for your thoughts. Now I know what to avoid!

Good lord. I am a Leo. If that is what being around a Scorpio brings out in a Leo than I will keep a lookout to avoid it. Horrific. Absolutely disgusting. Tell me, how long did it take for you to detroy him? It must have taken you quite a while judging by the list. Ha ha!

My eldest son, is a scorpio male. He was with a a scorpio woman when he was 21 for abt 3 years, and they were just engaged when he was about 23. I thought she was the most amazing girl. I was so pleased they found one another. She was an intriguing, dainty tomboy, a Leo girl who professed her deep devotion to him as him being someone so very special.

Alas, they broke up when she cheated on him. Got pregnant by one of his good friends. I miss her like I would my own daughter.

was that good friend a leo?

Why must everybody pigeon hole people into categories?

Despite what I said earlier, if you intentionally avoid certain astrological signs you have limited yourself. If you don't try it you won't know. :-)

Yes, sometimes we just know to stay away. I prefer to think of that as instinct. We are drawn to certain types of people and repelled by others. In most cases we will never know why.

This was explained very well. I like you fmina.

Never gaslight a Scorpio we can see through a leo bull s*it at a 1000 yards lol

Don't sting it's only a *****. "He won't be able to handle one"

Leo man brings out whatever is given to Scorpio woman. It has been my experience that we have been acutely underestimated by Leo men.

OMG, I thought I was losing my mind. I was the other women for 5 years. I was the woman until he told me his 12 year, junior playmate was pregnant. Told him go be with her, I'm cool. This is how messed up he is, he convinced her to get an abortion. She already had two ADD/HD so body's the daddy kids anyway, he just didn't want them to be by her. A year went by, we caught up again-and yes she did have an abortion. I was furious she had upset my life over *******, so I became the mistress of their relationship for a whole five and a half year. I played that fiddle. He was at my beckon call. My whole goal was to break that ****up just like she had done my relationship. But then, I made the ultimate mistake. I got caught up. I was willing to say and do anything I needed to, to make him leave her. I knew everything that was going on in their relationship, I just never commented on it. I kept it between me and him. He trust me. I turned the tables, started telling him how she had disrespected him over the years, used him like a puppet. He hated her kid cause they use to steal from him. She used him, her family used him. He was convinced. He left her. Only problem is he had no where to go. I had played it so close for so many years, I finally just let him move in. His been here two and a half months, and now I'm her!!! Damn it!!! Everything you wrote in your post is exactly who he is. The worse part about it is, I'm older than him, more educated, and make way more money. He'll never be substantial in this life time. He's a waste. Anyone who get his is my pleasure. Well I guess I'll make it through the winter then dumb his a**. I know this sounds cruel, but he has to learn you can not go around screwing with peoples lives. It just so happens I had the time to teach em the lesson. I'm a Sagittarius, he love my *** and he don't know why. I can run his race, that is his challenge. He is always trying to catch me. Sometimes I let him...but now I'm bored with his lying, cheating, unimaginative, selfish, boring bull****. I know his ex is waiting with open arms. Oh did I think he left her for good...Hell NO! But she will never be me!

Lmfao! I looked online for a rant like this and there are indeed many things you mentioned that speak to my recent experiences with Leo men. I should say I'm a cold blooded saggitarius woman so their negative traits rarely offend. But having male friends that are leos and having casually dated a good few Leo's ... I'm dodging that bullet the next time a Leo man even tries to look my way. Im So over their highmaintanance nature and the lies!!! god help us the sociapathic lying is ridiculous!!! The "me me me whoa is me" show is tiresome. Next.

20 Years worth of marriage down the track and he is the ******* Martyr and I am the ******* *******. Dickhead is so moody.

It seems like you haven't been with a real leo yet and just scumbags " little cats that look at themself at the mirror and think theyr the king of the jungle" for all that history numbered book you wrote makes us believe that all you look for is the worst... if your goal oriented enough you should know howbto determine the difference between a good guy nd a bad one... maybe your just like "US"


Wish you nothing but the best! ;)

Lol and if you think about it....you have to be compatibale to a leo in order to get along with them. Most of yall who agree with this either arent compatibale at all, lieng, or just been with a few thats like that. Not all leo men are as what this blog makez them look. They arent bad people at all...actually they are the most protective when it comes to kids and family. Like you said, they're possesive so they tend to protect anything thats there's. Leo men typically are the type to get jelous but that just makes them hold on more...they dont want to see you with someone elso. And STOP thinking Leo men dont have a ****** heart cause in all actuallity...they have the biggest heart out of most signs.

AMEN Aries :) we have a possessive streak and you better believe that Leo's always have a harem of woman at their beck and call.

Yell, until the woman get to know his ***.....Leo men wear a "Mask" to rill the woman in, once Leo men feel you care, all hell break loose and you'll see them for who they really are, a "Narcissistic"!

Leo don't look for compatibility, they look for any woman who is nice and caring. There is no one who is compatible with those "Monsters".....the "Devil" will show himself, it's just a matter of time.

LMFAO!!! Ok im a leo and so is my boyfriend, so I know how a leo is. You wrote this based off experience with a few. Sure SOME of this is true but most of it isnt. My leo surely isnt lazy, in fact he's more active than me at times, leos are wonderful listeners so talking to him helps,they are funand energetic so you dont get bored with them, yea they tend to be impatient and you may think they are adhd or bipolar but if you pay close attention to the animal Lion....so are they. #44 is the one I laughed at the most because mine has NEVER done that, #45 is kind of true because they know what sneaky looks like because they are but they also know that nobody like routine all the time, and last but not least ##49..... This isnt true because me and my leo have been together for 3 almost 4 years now :)....and yes we leos tend to have the appearence that we're crazy buuuut that just makes us more fun to be around!

and it doesn't matter what you write cause,We Leos are just too wonderful that we smile seeing this post and don't even read this completely.LOL!

Don't I know it.

Jennifurby please don't think that what he said was true. I am a leo and I not only read it all through but am doing it several times to try to recall where these things connect in my memory. Leos also take pride in being the best person they can make themself. Without that kind of roaring criticism it can be hard to get our attention. But you should know this. If a Leo who cares says something critical of you that Leo heart isn't so shallow to do it imprudently or maliciously of spite. The last thing someone with deeply protective feelings does is injure with intent.

Pride goeth before the fall

yep I hear this every day at work and all the rest of us smile n nod then eventually you go away true to type your not the only one.

Mayb you got ADD?
