Leos are known for their loyalty and love of justice, but they can also be hot-headed and temperamental. If you date a Leo, there’ll be exciting days as well as challenging ones. Are they grudge holders?
Do they hold on to old wounds? The good news is that Leos are usually forgiving and optimistic. They tend to focus on the future, not the past; the bad news is that it may take them a while to get there…
Why Are Leos So Passionate?
Leos are passionate, dramatic and romantic people. They love big gestures and are likely to choose a grandiose setting for a first date. You’ll probably feel like you’ve walked onto the set of a movie. Leos are very affectionate and like to show their love through physical touch.
They’re likely to have a few nicknames for you, like Sweetie or Love. Leos are also generous lovers who like to please their partners. If you’re dating a Leo, remember to show your appreciation for their efforts and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Leos are intuitive partners who will understand.
When a Leo Holds A Grudge
Leos are usually forgiving, but grudges are a different story. It’s possible that your Leo partner will harbor feelings about something for a long time.
Grudges often come from a place of deep hurt, which makes them hard to get over. This is especially true if you’re the one who caused the hurt.
If you have a past grudge against your partner and they bring it up, it’s best to talk about it. If a grudge is old, it’s probably not worth holding on to. Whatever hurt it was born from is probably long gone.
On the other hand, if your partner has a grudge against someone else, it may be worth trying to let it go. It’s unlikely that the other person will magically forgive you (and this isn’t healthy anyway) so it’s best to let go.
How To Deal With An Angry Leo
Leos are passionate people, which means they’re likely to get angry on occasion. When they do, it’s important not to try to solve the problem. Instead, let your partner get it out.
You can ask questions like, “How long has this been bothering you?” or “What would you like me to do while you cool off?” but don’t try to offer solutions.
Let your Leo partner know that you understand and that you don’t expect them to be calm right away. If you’re the one getting upset about something, try to keep your cool.
Don’t make it worse by shouting or taking it out on your partner. Let your partner know that you need space to calm down and then be sure to come back and talk about what happened.
Leo-dating Dos and Don’ts
Do listen to your partner. Even if it feels like you’ve heard everything before, go ahead and ask questions. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable. If you’re upset or bothered by something your partner did or said, come out and say it. Don’t wait for your partner to notice.
Be open to new experiences. If your partner invites you to do something, even if you don’t think you’ll like it, try it anyway. Don’t put up a wall because you’re afraid of getting hurt.
Remember that dating a Leo is a two-way street and all partners have the right to feel hurt. Don’t shut down your partner when they get too excited. Let your partner know that you’re there and that you love them.
The Problem With Possessiveness For Leos
Leos are very possessive partners and may be reluctant to let you do things without them. The problem with this is that it can lead to feelings of resentment and hinder growth and maturity.
Ultimately, the goal is to become a strong and confident person who doesn’t need to cling to a partner.
If your partner is too possessive, try to gently remind them that you’re an independent person and you need room to grow. If your partner isn’t willing to let you go out without them, it may be time to end the relationship.
Leos are passionate, dramatic and romantic people who love big gestures. They’re likely to choose a grandiose setting for a first date and they’re very affectionate and generous lovers.
If you’re dating a Leo, remember to show your appreciation for their efforts and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. Most importantly, remember that dating a Leo is a two-way street.
