Has your Leo fella gone a bit cold? Has he started ignoring your texts, pulling away, or even ghosting you? How can you get him back – without coming off as too needy or pushing him away? Here are a few reasons why he does it – and some surprising ways to pull him back towards you:
It’s strange when a Leo man goes cold. It can feel like you were standing next to a roaring, warm hearth fire, and now, all of a sudden, you’re wondering why it’s so chilly.
Being the sign of romance, it’s unusually for him to pull away, as he’s usually the type of person to be larger than life, and always makes his presence known in your life! He’s loud, proud and warm, the type to commit and never let go. So, what’s the deal? Why is he behaving this way? And what can you do about it?
Why Has He Gone Cold? Why Isn’t He Texting Back?
He Could Be Feeling Neglected
Leo men need loads of attention. Like, bucketloads. He needs to know he is the very center of your universe, that he comes first in your list of priorities. If he feels that he isn’t that center, he will very likely pull away, going quiet and cold. He hates to feel like he has to chase love!
Think of him as a lion. He needs to be stroked, so that he can purr and feel like the King of the Jungle!
He Might Have Family Obligations Going On
Leo is the sign of children and family. If your Leo crush has a few kids of his own, they will be everything to him. Maybe they’re going through something tough and stressful as a family, which is the reason he’s gone quiet.
Work Is Really Stressful
This is a sign that works hard – very hard! Leo men are very committed to their careers, and when the going gets tough, the tough get going! If he’s not texting you at the moment, it very well could be that his career is taking up his time and attention.
He’s Doubting Your Feelings And Loyalty
Loyalty is everything to the typical Leo man. When he gives of himself, he gives it all. He’s either all in, or nothing at all. He expects his woman to have the same loyalty, and if she doesn’t, he will most likely pull away.
The same goes if he doubts you have the same feelings for him. If you’re not totally warm and loving, openly flattering and adoring him, he will tend to pull away from you!
5 Surprising Things To Do When A Leo Man Doesn’t Text Back – Without Pushing Him Away
So, what can you do, practically, to pull him back when he pulls away from you? Here are some surprising tips on how to respond:
1. Reach Out & Ask Him About Himself
Leo guys love to talk about themselves. Yes, they can be self-absorbed that way, but like the Sun that shines in the sky, they command attention. By simply reaching out and asking him about himself, you can connect with him and pull him back to you.
Drop him a text and ask: “How are you? I miss you. I hope everything is okay in your world at the moment.”
Add more personal touches, such as asking him about one of his presentations you knew he was stressed about, or a family member he was concerned about. This shows you have been really listening to him, which he will appreciate.
2. Send Him Flowers Or A Small Gift
One of the main “love languages” for a Leo man is the act of giving gifts. He tends to love spoiling the woman he adores, so reciprocating in a language that he understands will mean the absolute world to him!
Send him the amazing gift of flowers with a card – do this publicly, where people will see him being spoiled and adored. He will lap up the attention, and feel absolutely loved. This is far better than any text you could ever dream of sending to him! Trust me on this one, ladies.
A small gift could also work, something you know that he’s always wanted and talked about. And don’t worry – this man won’t find it stalker-ish of you! He’ll be so flattered that he can’t help himself but call or text you immediately!
3. Let Him Know What You Miss About Him
Be specific when you reach out to him via text. Tell him exactly what you miss about him in your life. Stroke his ego and make him feel special, cherished, and missed. Tell him it’s his arms around you, his wonderful way of telling stories, his sexiness and playfulness that you miss.
Keep the focus on him – not on how he makes you feel. For example, saying to him you miss the dinners he used to take you too won’t make him feel special or valued for who he is. Reminding him that you miss his gifts will make him feel used.
So, get detailed. Text him, surprise him by telling him in no uncertain terms what he means to you!
4. Give Him A Call
Giving this man a call, when you know he’s free, is not something you can do that will seem needy or pushy – trust me on that! Leo men love to hear your voice. Instantly saying you were thinking of him, coming off as easy-breezy, which will help him to feel special and loved.
Of course, there is a line between chasing him and just chatting. This move does take some courage (and the right timing!) but he will know that courage, and respect you for it. Yes, Leo men like to be the Alpha male who does all the pursuing usually, but sometimes it’s good to know he’s wanted, too.
5. Let Him Know He’s On Your Mind 24/7
Without seeming like a stalker, let your Leo man know you are thinking of him. That he’s the only one for you. That he makes your world go around. You can text him something like “I went to the park at lunch today and remembered that amazing moment we shared together there.”
This will make him feel totally loved, validated, and seen. When a Leo man is seen and told how special he is, he responds warmly and instantly. This is a passionate man, remember!
Once he knows he’s the center of your universe, he will usually start coming back, ignoring you less, and feeling safer with you. After all, he is looking for something committed!
