This is not as good a combination as it might seem because it is a little crowded on center stage. Whereas Leos don’t need to have all the attention, they do need to have most of the attention, and the one thing they can’t stand is being upstaged by someone else. This combination tends to bring out the egotistical side of Leo which, despite popular stereotypes, is not the predominant aspect of this sign. Somehow, both parties wind up feeling bad about themselves for being themselves, and that makes for a droopy lion indeed.
How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Leo Man: You’ll have to adjust your radar a little bit to court a Leo woman. Whether you admit it or not, you are usually looking for a loyal subject, not a Queen, and yet here you have a Queen — an honest-to-gosh member of the royalty. You should be careful with flattery — make sure it is sincere, try to ask her about herself rather than just talking about yourself, focus on something fun like kids or recreation that you may have in common, promise her a crown and stars to put in it, and let her see that you know what she’s worth. This is not an ordinary mortal you are courting. And for God’s sake, don’t fawn over her.
How to Attract a Leo Man as a Leo Woman: You will have to tuck your ego and your pride into your pocketbook if plan to approach the great King of the Jungle. You may see yourself as his future Queen, but it is more likely, at least at first, that he is looking for a loyal subject rather than someone with whom to share the realm. Flattery, on the other hand, will get you everywhere. He is inclined to believe the most incredible things about himself, so much so that you can be humorous in your own mind. Try to bring out his generosity by making him feel good about himself. He can be among the most giving people on earth. By ALL means, and above all, never fight him for the check, never open your own door, and never take a phone call in the Royal Presence. Try and keep your hair in place. He has a thing about “public appearances”. When he is out in public, he is always “on-stage” and you must play your part. Keep your nails trimmed or manicured, pick a hairstyle that is easy to fluff up at a moment’s notice, and keep something decent handy to grab on your way out the door because he is also very spontaneous. Most importantly, try to be FUN.
Degree of Romance: It’s almost as if this relationship is nothing but romance. Each plays their part so beautifully. In fact, the secret to a great evening with a Leo — and this applies to both men and women — is to see a movie that’s very romantic. They will unconsciously play the parts later in the bedroom, which is completely natural, and part of the childlike fun of being a Leo. They’ll say things like “We have the stars, let’s not ask for the moon,” and “Ah, love, let us be true to one another for the world, which seems to lie before us like a land of dreams …” Such lines might make the other signs laugh, but when two Leos get together all the world is really a stage.
Degree of Passion: Passion is a little bit of an act where a Leo is concerned but it does belong in the repertoire. Contrary to common stereotype, lions are really ruled by their head, not their heart. Love, for a Leo, is an act of will and passion. In fact, it is an act period. Ironically, they really don’t bring out the spontaneity in one another.
Degree of Friendship: The sign associated with friendship is the opposite of Leo which kind of says it all. Leos are warm-hearted, good people but there always seems to be more self-interest than would promote a genuine friendship (don’t AGREE). For the more part, they are content with love and romance and we think they should leave it that way.
Degree of Marriage: Well, the loyalty is there. They will want to look good in front of everyone else, so they have that in common, and they may center beautifully and ecstatically on their children which is often the glue that binds forever. Leos do seem to have the most magical children, and they, of all the signs, enjoy their offspring to the absolute nth degree. What a beautiful thing to have in common, and how lucky the kids will be.
Progression of Relationship: This is courtship by the book. If you are dating a Leo man, you are with an old-fashioned knight in shining armor. He will follow the rules and follow them meticulously. Stray from the time honored traditions of courtship and you will fall from grace and become just like all the rest. This means he’s in charge, he does the asking, he does the planning, and he moves it forward by increments known only to himself. Leos, of all the signs, are the most likely to get married and stay married. Chances are this man is courting seriously and will tie the Leo woman down after three months with an engagement. UMMMM????
Sex can be a staged performance more than with perhaps any other sign. As long as they both understand this, they’ll get along fine. Role playing can be a plus as long as the roles are glamorous and romantic. For example, “the secretary” is a good role to play because it puts the woman in the subordinate position, yet lets her be organized and adorable.
When It’s Over: When it’s over there will be enough wounded pride to go around the world. If they can keep a lid on the conversation during the denouement that would be best. Why say something that you will regret later? Chances are very good that they both tried their very best, put 100% into the relationship, cared with all their hearts, and became truly dismal when the thing just didn’t work out. Leos, try to muster your compassion and see the mutual disappointment. Do unto him as you would have him do unto you.
