Hey all,

Leo men SEEM to be pretty loyal and truthful. I am finding it very refreshing and wanted to ask -

Do they always make a big deal about picking the right time to introduce you to their friends and THEN once they have, they give the impression (and sometimes also say) that it shows how important you are to them?

Nver come across this before. Is iton the same scale as an Italian man introducing you to his mother?

Think about the polar opposite of Leo,Aquarius and i think you'll have your answer.I think Leo's wouldn't like to be embarrased by their partners in anyway,so he must think you have an air of decorum

Yea your being a dense brit Lara j/k.
Ok,Aquarius is very much about friends and freindships and Leo being the opposite sign also shares this quality,that's why it's probably a big deal to him,he probably wants to 'show you off' as well.

"lets be friends" I've said that on more than a few occasions myself lol

Hi, LEOs seem to be a "running gag" in my personal love life. Not only was my first boyfriend ever a Leo ... the man I had the most serious, "marriagelike" relationship with (for 9 years) was a Leo as well (also his ASC in Leo).

And so was my latest love, the one I've just broken-up with in April, after one year of an intense long-distance relationship.

Sooo ... I'd really rate myself as an "expert" as far as being a Leo-guy's girlfriend is concerned.;-)

Yeah - the "showing off"-factor is important. They want/need to be proud of you.

But every medal has two sides - so, PRIDE is exactly the factor where problems and frictions reside in a relationship with Leo - at least from my perspective/experience. They always want to be Number One, in every second. And they find it hard to grant you your own glorious moments. In fact, they want their partners to shine. But beware! And don't dare to shine brighter than a Leo in any social occasion - and be it just for one day. They cannot stand that.

They definitely lose all their generosity if anyone seems to be "more succesful" as themselves ... even if this is not a constant thing, but only temporarily.

Two of my three Leo-boyfriends could cope with the fact that I am a quite "successful" and independent person (in my social and professional life.) They accepted it - and sooner or later saw the benefits that brought to them as well. And even found a way to support me, somehow.

But the latest Leo seems to have been a less evolved Leo-type. He was loaded with jealousy and always tried to belittle, weaken or confuse people who SEEMED to have certain things going for them that he had no access to. He was the opposite of "generous" - very childish in his eagerness to be "the first" in all matters possible. He was a 42 year old who couldn't even stand to lose a backgammon-match for instance. (Honestly: he swept the backgammon-game off the table, when he lost 3 games in a row or so. Well, he was "blessed" with an ARIES-Moon as well, which opposed his Mars ....)

It makes me laugh now - episodes like that. But ... it turned to hell while being with him.

One day he presented me, his girlfriend, to his friends and talked about my profession and all, and behaved like a "proud mentor" ... the other day he couldn't stand the fact that I'd come up in some (minor) Televison-reports because of my profession. Once he switched off the TV, when that happened and said: "Your professional crap don't interest me at all." (Which was really rude, VERY small minded ... and just showed his insecurity to a degree that almost turned me off, already then, months before I left him. I tried to "accept" his vanity and have "compassion" for him so often, I have a caring Cancer-Sun - but I am also a cardinal being - and this didn't work well with the latest Leo I was in love with, not at all. He felt threatened all the time.)

So - I guess the evolved LEO-types can really make you feel special, from time to time. But the lesser evolved ... are just plainly childish, jealous, insecure with themselves and talk in quite mean ways about other people.

The best Leo can be a joy, a "proud man" to be with, a real man with some minor vanities, but: who isn't vain once in a while? ;-)

The worst Leo is a childish, small minded, vain and insecure beast - with a temper of a three year old toddler, a very aggressive one.

That's a really good analysis Alvarella,i've come across both types of Leo as well and what you said is really a good descrition of thier different levels of 'ego' maturity.

Hey thanks to both of you. That's so interesting...

So basically would any of your Leo men be flippant in introducing you to their friends or did he only do it when he was SURE that you were the one?

It took months and months for my Leo to introduce me to anyone LOL
Now l have steam-rolled through meeting most of them which is why i'm wondering if this is a part of his way of expressing his seriousness toward me.

I have noticed that Leo's are short on words and better on action

"Short on words, better on action" : I agree, LARA.

Yes - and I'd rate it a very good sign that he "showed you 'round" - he'd never introduce you to his friends if he had the slightest doubt that you might "embarrass" him or if he wasn't sure about you. Leos tend to show off their girlfriends as some sort of "trophy", haha. Which can be VERY flattering, if you're that girl! ;-)

So, really: Leos CAN be great. And ... they are rather easy to handle, basically. ;-) Because their EGO is the most important factor ... all you have to do is to pamper that ego regularly. You can hardly ever overdo in "praising" them - but it must be sincere, of course. They sense false compliments, they are able to spot them, because they are so sensitive of being ridiculed themselves.

As I mentioned above: Only the lesser evolved Leos can be a p*** in the a** with their never-to-be-fullfill need to be "number one".

I find it striking, that basic contradiction in the Leo-personality: They are so proud - but at the same time very insecure. They actually NEED constanc re-assurance, more than any other sign, I'd say. (although Leos are the least who would admit that kind of neediness, of course!;-))

ahhhh Alvarella,

your comment - "They are so proud - but at the same time very insecure. They actually NEED constanc re-assurance, more than any other sign, I'd say."

has cleared up another point l think.

I could not understand why a man can say I LOVE YOU a million times on email or msn. yet be incapable of saying it to my face... even after 6 months!!!!

Must be a fear of rejection due to this insecurity thingy, no?

I think when they talk about how they feel and their love for you they REALLY mean it though - l don't think they are light-hearted in this respect. More serious and conservative!

Very interesting. Let me write this all down and put it in the Leo Book.
