I'm trying to answer the same question with the one I'm interesed in! I know they do AT FIRST. I'm a Leo, but I have ascendant, Mars, Venus in Cancer so I can't distinguish what comes from Leo and what comes from the other. I WILL pursue but there comes a point where once I've let them know I like them then the ball is in their court and it takes a h-ll of a lot to get me to make another move after that. I think with them that you have to go to the king because the king doesn't come to you is probably the best analogy.
But in my experience flattery really WILL get you everywhere with them. Ask for his advice and make him think he's the best at everything. I hate to be so clichet but think of the famous Leo males-Trump, Gene Simmons, Hulk Hogan...massive egos. Not that they're all like that by any means. Those guys are caricatures of the Leo but still to some degree they're all like that.

My brother is a Leo and he sais that no matter how much he likes a girl he plays hard to get in the beggining until he knows that she likes him. I am thinking that is a Leo thing.

Leo males are too proud to risk rejection. So, they like to know that a woman is interested. Once they know, they'll pursue.

I find Leo women more daring. Lots of self-confidence. They'll go after a man and will seduce him. They usually get their man. It is a rare female leo who is rejected. Maybe they instinctively know which men will be attracted to them.

I love leos. They're fun.

About the subject.. In my experience they pursue MAJORLY when in love.. they never wait to be pursued. They are very romantic and will invite you out for candlelit dinners in no time.

Actually, out of all the men I know the good Leos I've met - are the most gentlemanly masculine.. and they absolutely love the journey of romance and pursuing. Being a fire sign they are *honest* and stable (fixed)so they don't usually play games. It depends on the rest of the chart though.

Also men in general regardless of sign.. are individual people with their own preferences. This particular guy might prefer being pursued.. or he might not like you romantically.

One small.. addition to that. A fire sign will usually be HONEST through and through.. if you are an honest person also.. However, if you start playing games yourself.. I don't guarantee that he won't hurt you and leave.. just because you ticked him off.

coral-

we are both in our thirties.

It's funny, I have "bullied" my way into 2 Leo's hearts. In a way that I haven't had to do with others. By bullied I mean, I saw that we would be fabulous together, however, both times the leos were being cowardly lions.....so, I kind of had to "make it happen"

However, I don't want to do that again.

I think there's truth in all the responses here. I believe the cowardly lion HAS to get that hint and reassurance that their pride won't get hurt so a little "pursuit" at the beginning is necessary. But be classy about it. If you are TOO eager or do something thing vulgar they will be put off. The guy I'm interested in responded so strongly to my questions about him...it was so cute to see. That was after I found out we were born the same day. I think he percieved it as flirting. It didn't start out that way but after I saw his response I couldn't resist. They love the opportunity to talk about themselves as long as it's not too prying. I said something that just came out in a very sweet sexy way within a few minutes of meeting him, not really meaning to, very innocently. Whether it was that, or being able to talk about himself, I don't know,but before he left I could swear, and I'm not trying to be nasty here, but I think he had an erection. LOL! It was a brief business type meeting that didn't last more than about 10 minutes. I walked him to his car and as he was bending over to get something he didn't know I could see his face and he was grinning ear to ear.Maybe he was laughing AT me. lol. But our chart showed a lot of good things. I have to come up with an excuse to see him again.

As a female Leo (with Venus in Cancer), I really like it when a guy plays hard to get and I'm totally turned off if he, say, eagerly asks me out on a date at first.

When I think of the 4 guys I've really fallen hard for, they ALL:
-seemed elusive, smoldering and very cool at first, and like they were at the center of an important social scene and many women wanted them
-seemed like they might be SECRETLY in love with me but too overwhelmed by the incredible intensity of their feelings for Leonine me, me, me ( ) that they weren't ready to confess
-over the course of several months of being friendly and very cool and fascinating, but slightly emotionally unreadable, they subtly and in passing dropped a huge, Leo-pleasing compliment...and then went back to hard-to-get. Leos take compliments as our due (partly because we're secretly insecure), so the compliment needs to not seem like a compliment. It could even be spun somewhat negatively. When a man says, "You're so beautiful" to me, I'm happy or whatever, but it doesn't make me intensely want him. Here's one that worked on me...I was with an aloof guy I had a crush on. Another guy was sort of hitting on me. After he left, Aloof Crush Guy said, "Wow, that must happen to you all the time. You must get really sick of strangers coming up and telling you how beautiful you are." Note that the reason it worked was that--after months of hanging out--I wasn't sure that Aloof Crush Guy thought that. I had just hoped he might.

To sum up: for male and female Leos alike, romance is an elaborate and thrilling game of cat-and-mouse. Imagine playing with a cat...if you hold the toy too still and close to the cat, he won't be interested in playing with it. No challenge. If you hold the toy too far away and move it too fast, he won't be interested either. You need to keep the toy just barely out of the cat's reach.

Leo is the ultimate "chase him until he catches you" sign. If you pursue him too overtly, he might go for it (probably to use you to make the ice queens he REALLY wants jealous, or to pass the time), but you won't dazzle and delight him. If you're too hard-to-get, he won't bother to go for you because it's not worth the trouble...OR if he's already very interested and you're too hard to get, he'll be wounded, and might not recover. Although Leos are loyal when they fall in love, they like to have an entourage of admirers--when I was a capricious teenage Leo, I used to add interested men to that group. I'd become friends with them, or even briefly date them, but I didn't really fall for them. Leos always have lots of people wanting to romance us and take us to dinners, because we're so damn happy when we're happy. Flattery WILL work with him, even if he's not Hulk Hogan...BUT (this is so important) flattery works with us to get you added to the entourage. We love to hear (confirmation ) that WE'RE a prize. But more is required for us to think YOU'RE a prize.

I have to disagree just a little with CoralFrequency. The Leos I know do lots of lovely romancing and pursuing once they've already hooked up with a mate they like...but they need a little bit of game-playing and back-and-forth chasing before the romantic dinner stage begins.

Leo is the fifth house sign, of creativity, romance, children and PLAY. For us these pre-foreplay games aren't manipulative or serious (like for game-playing Scorps) or meant to be hurtful. And I think even warm, loving, mature Lions like them, although the "good" Leos definitely know the difference between play and manipulation. We are VERY honest, and for us the game is meant to be a consensual, fun, romantic kind of pre-foreplay foreplay. It is not dishonest, just flirtatious.

To stand out from the entourage of suitors (Leo men have them too), you will need to let the Leo Sun/Cancer Venus know that:
1) You are incredibly hard-to-get because you are rare, special and a great prize
2) You understand that HE is rare, special and a great prize...you are equals.
3) You are incredibly picky, and that's why you're interested in him.
4) You will always think he's wonderful and manly and extraordinary and be very loyal.

Good luck!

Bravo Lovely Leo!!!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to illustrate that for me.......I really appreciate it, I especially like the 4 ways to stand out...which I will need to because this Leo does have an entourage. Cat and mouse huh...........we shall soon see!

Thanks again,
DS

I have some really nice memories from Leos.. so I think I'm biased.. because I see them as too warm to play hard to get or play games in general.

But then again, I'm a serious person romantically and I have a very deep view of love that has to be met on every level for me to like someone (Venus trine Mars/Nept.. and Cap Moon).. so games don't meet my expectation of a genuine connection with a person. It's a bit too Hollywood.. too flaky and un-genuine.. Don't know. I don't think I'd attract Leos or other guys, who play games anyways.. I send out pretty clear - keep away messages lol

I wouldn't risk that.

PS.

I don't call being flirtatious or fore-play 'playing games'.. They're very different things to me lol - nice/nasty. You can be flirtatious and honest at the same time. 'Cat and mouse' is not honest in my book.. It's very high school.
It's not even about being honest as much as *genuine* and deep feeling.. not flaky feeling.

God, I love Leos.

"do male leo's like to be pursued?"

Does Poo like honey?

They love it, but will it win them? No.

Lucia said it:

Also, this is one of the more brilliant things I've come across on these boards:

ps. In the Leonine spirit,
a couple of jokes I heard lately:

"I once slipped on an escalator...
I fell for an hour and a half."

"What do you call cheese that doesnt belong to you?
NACHO cheese!"


------------------

'Would you know your Lord's meaning in this thing? Know it well. Love was his meaning. Who showed it to you? Love. What did he show you? Love. Why did he show it? For love. Keep yourself therein and you shall know and understand more in the same. But you shall never know nor understand any other thing, forever.'
- Julian of Norwich

'My friends, how desperately do we need to be loved and to love. When Christ said that man does not live by bread alone, he spoke of a hunger. This hunger was not the hunger of the body. It was not the hunger for bread. He spoke of a hunger that begins deep down in the very depths of our being. He spoke of a need as vital as breath. He spoke of our hunger for love.
Love is something you and i must have. We must have it because our spirit feeds upon it. We must have it because without it we become weak and faint. Without love our self-esteem weakens. Without it our courage fails. Without love we can no longer look out confidently at the world. We turn inward and begin to feed upon our own personalities, and little by little we destroy ourselves.
With it we are creative. With it we march tirelessly. With it, and with it alone, we are able to sacrifice for others.'
- Chief Dan George

'Judgment is the antithesis of understanding,
and hatred of evil is the craftiest and least well-known of vices,
so easily is it mistaken for love of good.'
- Heart-Shaped Cross

Because games are USUALLY NOT ment as a sign of deeper connection. They are more just a friendly way to getting to know another person better without getting way too involved deeply. Its really cool of you to not see them as a sign of true love but what of friends though? One can be flirtacious and still be friends right? ts all in the communication; If both people understand that its just ment as a nice gesture; Nothing more, then there shouldn't be any problems IMO.

Leo rising here BTW.

The Leos (both genders) I know are very straight forward and honest and don't play games at all. A lot of integrity, which I respect. I dated a Leo guy and he was so romantic...love letters he wrote to me every day and left in my mail box, flowers on my table when I got home (he gave them to my room mate, didn't have a key).

I would say just be up front and suggest getting together for coffee first, just as a way to let him know you're interested, if he isn't already aware. Let him take it from there. It's more natural when a guy does the asking.

In my experience, the most masculine signs (and who like to be in the stereotypical male role) were Leo, Taurus and Aquarius. The Aquarius guy liked to have the music on and dance, just the two of us in his living room (with a beautiful city view of the lights), typical Aquarius spontaneity...

Well, being a Leo, I can assure you we most certainly DO play games. Fun games, not the insidious destructive kind. Mostly to test you.
