I have read everything on this site regarding Leo men. I am an adult Libra woman who has dated a Leo man. They have certain traits they display very early in a relationship that undermines our futures together. First Leo's test potential partners very early on (first few dates). They seem to do this to see what we will do kinda like the a "practice run". Unfortunately, this is a direct attack on a Libra. As a Libra we generally are focused on establishing clear and defined boundaries. Thus when they disrespect or hurt us we respond with our backs up. We don't want to be "push over's" or get taken advantage of in a relationship. So we try to be very clear up front with any guy we date what we will and will not accept. Given this was a "test" the Leo is turned off and wary that he is dealing with a "cookiemonster". They also think we may leave them or abandon them in the future. This undermines their trust in the potential of the relationship. With Leo's they see our "boundary setting" as an argument or conflict and don't perceive us as accommodating, loving, giving, supportive, flirty, sexy, gentle women. This puts a bad taste in their mouths for us in the future.
Also, we Libra's don't respond well to the "disappearing act" Leo's frequently display. Libra's perceive unpredictable absence/silence as a sign of imbalance, instability and significant untrustworthiness. A significant problem in the beginning stages of a romantic relationship.
Lastly, Leo's are a bit selfish and self centered. I haven't figured this out just yet. But add me as a favorite and I'll post additional information on this topic.
Libra's just have to get out of the shallows into the deep with Leo's. We have to let things skate and keep showing them affection, don't stalk them, don't over initiate communication and "pass" the tests.
But if we can do some of the following things maybe we can have a strong healthy relationship:
1. Just let their tests run off our backs and go with the flow and
2. Disappear a little bit and
3. Don't challenge their disappearing acts.
4. Don't over analyze their behavior.
5. Focus on ourselves
I am a strong Christian and have found this an accurate study of people's traits and characters.
