Leo men are not as difficult to read as some other star signs. However, if you are on the fence about whether or not your Leo love interest is into you or not knowing the tell-tale signs is helpful.
He Hunts You
The lion represents men who are born under the Leo zodiac star sign. So, you can compare him to the king of the animal kingdom. If he wants something, he is going to get it. He also likes to hunt the things he has his eye on. So, if he is into you, he will find you.
Here are some tell-tale signs he is ‘hunting’ you:
- He shows up to bars, clubs, or parties knowing you are there.
- Your friends tell you he asked about you.
- He comes to your job.
- You see him in places that he has to go out of his way to go.
Many people overlook this as a sign that someone is showing interest in them. However, if a Leo man does not like you, he will not frequently go to where he knows you will be. There are many places he can go. So, if you happen to run into him frequently, it is a pretty good indication he is on the hunt.
He Speaks Highly of You
A Leo man is notoriously prideful. He enjoys boasting about everything in his life. If he likes you, you will be no different. Your Leo love interest will take every opportunity he can to tell others how wonderful you are.
He will brag about your accomplishments, your looks, how intelligent you are, and anything else he can think to tell people about. He does this because he wants others to like you as much as he does.
He Always Wants You Around
When a Leo man wants you around all the time he is definitely into you. He has better things to do than spending time with you if he does not care. So, if he invites you to go places with him frequently that is a positive sign. It is also good if he invites you over to his house, and asks you to attend events with him.
He Buys You Gifts or Spends Money on You
Receiving gifts from a Leo man is a sign that he likes you. He works hard for his money and he loves doing things for himself. Generally, the world revolves around him. So, if he is spending what he could spend on himself on you instead that says a lot.
When a Leo man is in love or likes someone, they are very generous. However, they do not just give without having some investment into the person they are giving to.
If he does give you gifts, always make sure you thank him and tell him how much you appreciate him. If you do not express gratitude for his gesture, it is unlikely that he will continue you show you his generosity. Part of the reason he does most things is to receive praise.
He is a confident man on the surface, but deep down he needs approval. He will be hurt if you do not like his gift. If you do not tell him, he will assume it was not acceptable. So, it is best to avoid any confusion.
He Asks for Your Opinion on Important Topics
The king does not need to ask anyone for their opinion. So, when he does it means he values you and your thoughts. It is an excellent indication that he not only likes you but he wants to please you with the decisions he makes.
If he asks for your input on decisions that could potentially affect a future for the two of you, that is an even bigger indication of the way he feels.
When he does this, it is really important not to act as if you do not care what decision he makes. If you are not completely honest with him, he will assume you do not care, and he might see it as a lack of commitment on your part.
He is Jealous Over You
A Leo man is one of the most jealous of all of the signs in the zodiac. So, you want him to be at least a little bit jealous over you.
He will let you know by his actions that he wants you all to himself. For example, if you go out with a group of mutual friends and he offers to buy your drinks, that is him showing the other men in the group that you are all his.
When he talks bad about a co-worker or boss that steps over the line with you, he is showing you he cares and does not want anyone else trying to get close to you. If he sees you out and comments on someone getting close to you, you know he is in hot pursuit.
These situations are just a glimpse at the way he can be in a relationship. However, it is essential to never attempt to make him jealous by purposefully throwing other men in his face. If he has reason to believe you might not be loyal, he will look for a mate who shows complete commitment to him. Loyalty is one of the most important qualities for him.
He Offers to Help You When You Are in Trouble
As an alpha male, he is serious about taking care of everyone he wants in his life. So, if you are in trouble, he will be the first person to help you out. He would not want anyone else to jump at the opportunity.
If you do not call him when you have an issue he could solve, afterward, he will ask you why you did not call him. He might also ask you how you handled the situation. If he does that he is trying to get information on any competition he has for your attention. He knows that if another male friend comes to your aid, they probably want to be with you, too.
He Introduces You to the Important People in His Life
When a Leo man likes you, he will want to show you off. He will look for any opportunity he can to bring you around his best friends and even his family. The opinions of others matter significantly to him, so he will want to make sure they approve of you before he commits.
He Tells You He Likes You
A man telling you he is into you might seem like a no-brainer as a sign that they like you. However, many women overlook it. Leo men are not the type to tell people they like them if they don’t.
If he does not tell you that he cares about you, there might be some reason for concern. He is not afraid to express himself to the people he cares about. You need to take the opportunity to tell him how much he means to you, too. When he tells you how he feels and you do not reciprocate, it makes him feel stupid.
He Uses ‘We’ or ‘Us’ When Talking About You
If he sees the two of you as a couple he will use ‘we’ and ‘us’ a lot. That does not mean that if he doesn’t he does not like you, but if he references you together that is positive. He does this because he sees you as a couple even if he has not made that completely clear to you yet.
He Makes Plans with You for the Future
Future plans that come from a Leo man mean that he wants you in his life for a while. If he likes you, he will ask you what you have going on. He will want to schedule himself into your life because he wants to make sure you have time for him. A Leo man does not leave anything to chance when it comes to his love interest.
What to Do If He Gives You Mixed Signals
You can analyze all you want, but sometimes a man might give you mixed signals. So, here are some situations and how you should handle them. The way you respond when he is unclear on his intentions is extremely important if you want to end up in a relationship with him.
He Only Invites You Over Late at Night
If a Leo man only invites you over after he has gone out with his friends and makes it back home, that is not a positive sign. It means he likes spending time with you alone, but he probably does not see a future for you two beyond the bedroom.
If you find yourself in this situation, it is better not to go unless you are okay with the relationship being purely physical. If you care about him and want more, this can be a bad path to go down.
Let him know upfront what you are looking for in your relationship with him. If he does not change, it is probably best to move on. Doing this will help him have greater respect for you. It might even change the way he views you and make him realize he wants more.
He Tells You He Likes You but Keeps You a Secret
Any man, especially a Leo that keeps you a secret is not the right match for you. A Leo man will gladly parade you around on his arm if he likes you. If he does not want to introduce you to anyone else, you are right to have concerns about his motives.
You Are Intimate with Him, but He Refers to You as His Friend
If you are sleeping with a Leo man, but he refers to you as his friend, that is how he views you. If this is not what you want, you need to tell him. Then, stop sleeping with him if he does not want more or accept the relationship for what it is, but do not expect it to change.
Things Were Going Well, But Something Changed
Leo men will typically tell you when you do something they do not like. However, there might be situations when they do not. If your relationship seemed to be on track and suddenly derailed, you should just ask him. Do not beg him, do not over-analyze, just have an open conversation with him.
What to Do If You Can’t Tell How He Feels
If you can’t tell how he feels, give it some time. Have fun with him, be affectionate towards him, and tell him you think he is great. Do not corner him, though. He wants to be the pursuer. If his ‘prey’ throws itself at him there is no challenge. In ways, he may delay the commitment part of the relationship because he likes the hunt.
Of course, if you have been dating him for an extended time and things are still in limbo, you owe it to yourself to find out where things stand. You need to know what is going on so you can choose to continue spending your time with him or move on. If that is the case, just talk to him.
Always be confident when you speak to him. Tell him how much you enjoy spending time with him, and ask him what he thinks about the future. Do not give him ultimatums, or he will run for sure. It is better to make him think the entire thing is his idea.
Final Thoughts on Signs a Leo Man Likes You
As a fire sign, Leo is red-hot when he is in love. He goes after what he wants with enthusiasm, so if you want to know how a Leo man feels about you, it should be pretty clear. Things get a bit more difficult if you have an on-again-off-again relationship with him. He can become jaded over time.
So, as a last resort, just ask him what he wants, tell him what you want, and move on if it does not line up. It will save you both a lot of time, energy, and emotions. It might also make the difference in things working out in the future for the two of you.
He admires strength and a partner who goes after exactly what they want. A Leo man might take advantage of a situation with a lover who allows him to have his way regardless of their feelings. However, when you show him you have the strength to put your foot down even if it hurts you, he will take notice, and if he doesn’t you are one step closer to moving on.
