Leos are, to put it simply, the life of the party; They love being the center of attention and showing off in every way possible, and yes, that extends to dating.
However, there’s more to Leo than what meets the eye, and under their outgoing, on your face personality, you’ll find a romantic and dedicated individual capable of turning even the most simple romance into something magical.
That’s right, romantic relationships with a Leo can be exhausting and a little overwhelming, but also incredibly rewarding and fulfilling.
Leos are Charming
There’s no denying Leos are charming. It is, after all, one of the most prominent traits this zodiac sign is known for.
Charming and friendly, Leos are capable of fitting right in just about any social group, and that involves the friends and family of those who date them.
They’ll seamlessly integrate with just about any social group, and if that doesn’t happen, they’ll at least be on friendly terms with everyone, making dating a Leo a treat for anyone whose friends and families always come first.
Being with someone who likes your friends and, more importantly, your friends like always makes a relationship go much more smoothly, though it might complicate things if there’s ever a break-up.
Leo’s naturally outgoing personality can also help shy or introverted partners make new friends and achieve things socially that they never thought themselves capable of, as they’ll feel supported and encouraged by their partners.
Leos are Romantic
Though they might not seem like it at first glance, Leos can be tremendously romantic, eager to show their love and appreciation in all kinds of ways.
Because Leos like to excel in everything they do, love setting trends and enjoy when other people talk about them, they tend to go all out on romantic dates, which can be amazing for those dating them.
To Leo, a date isn’t only just the opportunity to spend time with the person they love, but rather the opportunity to show off and demonstrate that they’re better than any other possible partner.
This means pulling all the stops to impress, carefully planning a date with all kinds of detail, making reservations in fancy restaurants, planning a picnic under a meteor shower.
You name it.
If it sounds a little like Leos will use dates as an excuse to show off, it’s because that’s precisely what they do; dates to them aren’t just a challenge, they’re an opportunity, and they love showing off as much as possible.
If that comes off as selfish, just think about it for a second; does it really matter why they’re doing it, as long as both parties enjoy the date?
Leos are Ambitious
Another well-known trait of this zodiac sign, Leos are known for their ambition and their relentless pursuit of the things (and the people) they want.
This ambition and perseverance can benefit a relationship in a number of ways, so let’s tackle them one by one:
- If they want to date a person, they’ll pursue that relationship until they succeed or until it becomes obvious the other person isn’t interested and won’t change their mind.
- If they’re already in a relationship, Leo’s ambition can be admirable and inspiring, giving their partners the push they need to chase after their own dreams.
- Leo’s ambition in their work-life can also make them an attractive partner for those looking for stability, as any Leo is usually well on their way to achieving their professional dreams.
Leos Love to Pamper
Leos love their creature comforts, so it makes sense that they love the idea of sharing said comforts with their partners.
As we previously pointed out, Leos love showing off their partners and taking them in all kinds of extravagant dates, but this desire to provide and experience the best also extends to closed doors.
Leos love to treat their loved ones to nice things, no matter how small: Soft bedsheets, delicious chocolates, beautiful roses, a night out at an expensive restaurant, a coupon for a couple’s massage, etc., etc.
It’s no even about wanting to show off the world just what an amazing partner they are, but rather about sharing quality time with their loved ones.
If Leo’s idea of a wonderful day is a day at the spa, it makes sense that they want to experience that with their partner; The same applies to Leo’s favorite restaurants, Leo’s favorite movies, favorite brand of chocolate, favorite shoes, etc, etc.
If it brings comfort and joy to Leo, chances are they’ll want to share that with their partners, be it in the form of random little gifts or elaborated dates.
Leos always want the best of the best, and that goes double for the people they love.
