Have you been dating a Leo man for awhile, but are unsure what he may be feeling for you? When a Leo man says I love you, can you trust him? Find out here.

When a Leo man says I love you it might come as a shock or a surprise. Is it possible that a wonderful man like him could possibly love you? But of course, it is! Saying these three words is a big step and says a lot about where your relationship is going. 

You might doubt this because of all kinds of reasons, but this is definitely one of the signs a Leo man is falling in love with you. I know some of you might think that it isn’t real, and want to know how to know if he loves you or lusts you because there is a very big difference. 

However, Leo men have very big hearts and they want to fall in love so the chances that he is telling the truth is pretty high. If you still have your doubts then It is a good idea for you to keep on reading to find out what it means when a Leo man says I love you.

How To Know If A Leo Man Loves You Or Lusts You

One of the signs a Leo man is falling in love with you is that he acts like a teenager. He may write you cute texts, call you multiple times a day, or send you sweet gifts he knows you’ll enjoy. He’s a romantic at heart so expect to be swooned.

This is a man that will go above and beyond to show you how he feels. He’ll want to be with you more often, he’ll want to take out and show you off to the world, and he’ll introduce you to his family/friends.

Any opportunity to be with you, call you, or reach out in any other way is a way to show you how much he cares. He will try everything in the book to get you to laugh or feel comfortable with him.

He has no trouble being a total goofball with you because HE feels comfortable with you and wants you to know that you are “the one”. He’s a personable guy typically but in love, he’s that much more personable.

Even after having been with him for awhile, you should notice him still trying to swoon you. If you’re not experiencing that, try talking to him about how you feel. Perhaps he has unresolved issues from the past.

When you’re getting lots of attention from your guy, this is how to tell if a Leo man is falling for you. He doesn’t do this with just anyone. When a Leo man loves you, he’s pretty open about it.

Just remember that when a Leo man says I love you, it’s not to be taken lightly. It’s important you know that what he feels is real.

When A Leo Man Says He Loves You — Should You Trust Him?

When a Leo man feels he can trust you, he will open up to you about how things are going in his life, how his day went, how frustrated he is, or how happy he is. Whatever it may be, if you’re the woman he loves, he’s going to talk to you.

Relationships are built on trust, he clearly trusts you enough to tell you he loves you. These aren’t small words, he means it. Why is it that you are doubting how he is feeling? Do you not trust that you deserve to be loved?

When there is suspicion in a relationship something else is going on and you need to ask yourself why you are feeling this way. A Leo man isn’t the type of guy to fool you, he is being real about his feelings and acting from the heart. Believe him, and if you don’t, is this relationship right for you?

Have you noticed that when he’s had a bad day or even a good day, he calls you up and wants to talk about it? If so then you know he loves you and it’s not just a habit.

If your Leo hasn’t told you he loves you yet but he’s opening up to you like this, it may be that the “I love you” is coming. He’s probably waiting for the right time and the right amount of romance to make it very special.

He wants to make sure that when he tells you, everything is nearly perfect. He wants it to be in the right setting, the right music, the right food, and the feeling of absolute amore.

If he often takes you to places like this or makes you feel like you’re a princess by telling you anything and everything on his mind, he is totally in love with you and the words are likely coming soon. This is one of the signs a Leo man loves you.

You just may soon experience something special and that’s when a Leo man says I love you. Boom!

Will A Leo Man Say I Love You First? Or Should I Express My Feelings First?

Honesty is always the best policy when it comes to relationships. If you feel like you love your Leo man then you should definitely share it with him if it feels right. He is the type of guy to tell you how he feels, so don’t worry about it.

A Leo man will say I love you first, but if you feel it, then there is nothing wrong with expressing how you feel first. He will appreciate the openness and honesty!

Actually, Leo men have one of the most specific love languages of all zodiac signs. I covered his entire Astrology love profile in my Leo Love Language guide. I suggest you get your copy if you really want to master his love language and finally connect with him in the right way.

How Do Leos Act When They Love You?

The Perfect Romance

The Leo man is very success driven and typically good at what he does. He’s also someone who seeks out a woman who will feed his need for attention and adoration.

He wants to basically make his life look like a Hallmark moment. This is what drives him to be very romantic, attentive, and loyal to the woman he decides to partner up with. He will fall in love with love.

He wants the perfect relationship. A Leo man doesn’t accept that relationships are not only perfect but, take some work. It doesn’t mean he won’t stop striving for it though. He wants it all.

Whoever he falls in love with will get wined, dined, and treated like an absolute queen while she’s with him. He will want you to have all the very best. He’ll buy you gifts, take you on trips, and show you off.

He will choose a beautiful woman to fall in love with. He appreciates beauty in all forms but he really does love having a woman on his arm who is eye candy. Intelligence is important as is being sweet, loyal, and successful.

A Leo man is looking for a woman who will make him look as though he’s conquered the world and delivered him a prize. I’m not saying he’s going to treat you like an object but he likes to flaunt what he has.

A Leo man seeks to have a partner that he can whisk off to some exotic place for a weekend getaway, a woman he can buy jewelry for, and dress up to take out with friends or family.

He’ll Never Want To Be Apart From You

The Leo man also tends to want to love a woman who becomes his best friend in the world. He wants to be able to talk to her and tell her everything about what he feels or what he thinks.

When he’s in love, he will also respect your opinions and thoughts on things. He may ask for advice or just some reassurance that he’s making the right choices. When you find him asking for your thoughts, he’s probably in love with you.

Going forward in a life together, he will always come home to you for comfort, love, romance, and someone he can absolutely confide in. You being his best friend is something that makes him feel very strong.

It’s assured that when a Leo man feels totally secure in love, he will also exude confidence in every other area of his life. As long as you’re giving to him and treating him like a King, he will assuredly treat you as his Queen.

If you’re ready for someone who will put you on a pedestal and try to give you the world, this is your guy. Leo man is something to behold. He may not always be ready to commit right out of the gate but he’s worth the wait.

When he feels he can trust his partner and wants to have a future with her, he will relax and fall deeply in love. This will secure a spot in his heart for his lovely partner.

Being his best friend is definitely the way to go when you’re trying to get closer to him and definitely required to fall in love. If you find that you’re already best friends then you’re pretty much already there. Jump in!

He’ll Be Real And Honest With You

While this relationship may feel magical at the beginning, once things start to settle down, the real Leo man emerges. This isn’t to scare you off. However, you need to know he does have some draw backs.

A Leo man is possessive, he’s jealous; he can sometimes come off as opinionated and may hold out expectations of you. He’s the type that prefers a woman who is submissive to him.

Leo men can be very old fashioned in thinking a woman isn’t as important as a man when it comes to making critical decisions. While he adored your opinions in the beginning, it may not stay that way if he disagrees.

He may come off as an arrogant jerk sometimes. Again, I’m not trying to freak out you but Leo men are overpowering on occasion. He can seem like one of those stereotypical conceited and narcissistic fools.

The Leo man is capable of trying to tell his partner what he believes she should be doing and if she fights him on it, he’ll resent her for not accepting what he thinks is best.

Leo Man In Love — Signs That Show A Leo Man Loves You

There are many signs a Leo man is falling in love with you. This is the type of guy who will do anything to have a picture perfect romance. He is big on falling in love and being the most romantic guy out there. 

When a Leo man is in love, he takes things to the next level. He will shower you with so many gifts and so many compliments because he wants you to know how special you are to him. He is very big on grand gestures!

You will always be a priority to him and you’ll never have to doubt how he feels about you because he is open and honest enough to tell you. A Leo man isn’t the type of guy to shy away from his love. Everyone will know about you.

The Leo man can be rather possessive and protective and one of the signs a Leo man loves you. If suddenly you notice that he asks you to text him every time you go somewhere or leave somewhere, he’s concerned with your safety.

Leo man will seem darned near obsessive when he’s in love. He cannot stand to be apart from his lady love. Even if he does like to have a little alone time, he will still be thinking of you the whole time.

It’s almost a guarantee that the Leo man is yours and totally in love. He reaches out to you as much as possible and also feels the need to make sure you’re alright when he’s not around.

Missing you is a big deal and another sign a Leo man is falling for you. That’s the way it is with most men but Leo man especially. It’s one step away when a Leo man loves you.

No More Sleepless Nights About Your Leo Man

It can be SO painful to worry about how to make things work with a Leo man who won’t commit.

I know. I’ve been there with many of my friends dating Leo guys.

I remember my very close friend crying herself to sleep at night, worried that her man would never commit to her. She lost sleep, time, and even work hours, all because she couldn’t figure out how to capture his heart and get him to commit.

As a friend, it was hard to watch her go through that. But I knew how good he was for her, and I didn’t want her to give up on him.

Even when our other friends were telling her to move on, I could see that he was the most incredible man she had ever met.

How could she just give up on that?

But it wasn’t easy. It took a LOT of work.

She had to learn how to speak a different language… his love language <<

And it worked!!

So if you are ready to sleep like a baby… Knowing your Leo man is MADLY in love with you… And never feel anxious about him again…

Go here now to see how to speak your Leo man’s love language.

    1. Hi Naa!

      I’m sorry to hear that you aren’t doing well with your Leo guy. You’re right, you cannot change him. That being said, you have to find middle ground in which you can both be happy. Talk to each other and discuss your needs so that you won’t be lost anymore. There can be happiness but you have to talk. If you’d like to learn more about Leo man, check out “Leo Man Secrets”.

  1. I am a Cancer Woman. I met a Leo Man 9 weeks ago. We matched on a dating app, at first sight he was smitten by my physical appearance. He insisted on meeting me the very next evening although we were in different cities. There was something magnetic pulling us to each other before we even met. He drove for three hours to meet me, brought flowers and chocolates too. At that time, I thought it would be our first and only date so I appreciated the gesture. It is strange that we fell for each other as soon as we met. We both agree that neither of us has ever felt this intensely about anyone else in our lives and we are sure we never will. He has told me that he loves me everyday and wants to have children with me. He never tires of kissing me and he will take a flight from another country just to meet me. I know he never lies to me, he is a man of his words. I feel so complete with him. We love each other very much but I have to change some things about myself to keep him close. I am willing to because I know he is the only one for me, he says we are TwinFlames and I feel so too. Anybody else after him will be a step down for me. He is not insecure or jealous because I am very devoted to him but he is quite possessive about me. He tries to hide it but I also see through all that. He is cunning and I am guileless, we are very different that way but I want to make it work. He gets frustrated sometimes with my tendency to always act in good faith. He can not tolerate anyone flirting with me or ogling at me, it pisses him very quickly. We had an argument yesterday, it was the worst day of my Life. He is stubborn and tends to rub a blunder in your face. I know he can be vindictive, he has a dark side but I am aware he tries his best to keep it away from me because he loves me. In bed, I know he would love to rail me aggressively but he holds himself back because he is afraid of hurting me. He gets very anxious if I have a bruise or clot. He runs to catch me if I stumble. I never had anyone to protect me, I had a hard life but I know he will keep me safe from the World. Nobody can dare to hurt me as long as he is with me. He is a 6’3″ huge muscular man, I am a 5’6″ slim curvy woman. I know arguing with him is useless so I just apologise for my mistake immediately. I deactivated my Instagram account and stopped talking to everyone, this is something I know he wanted me to do even if he did not say so. He does not approve of me speaking to anyone except him and my family. I know he is isolating me for my own good and also so I would not leave him ever. He says I should only rely on him for everything, even to confide. Is this healthy though ? I am a little naive and easily manipulated and sometimes other people’s remarks can influence my judgement. He is aware of this so I think he is afraid he will lose me if he does not keep me away from everyone. I am an introvert but I had a very vibrant virtual life before. I wonder if I can change enough easily and I worry I will lose him if I do not. He wants to own me, be sure of me. I am afraid I might lose myself instead of finding myself in Love. I know he will never leave me and pamper me a lot but I get anxious. I love him too much.

    1. Dear Femfateletron,

      He likes to lead through his communication style and can be dominating or bossy at times but also can be creative. Let him think things are his idea, give him a lot of positive reinforcement and set him up with questions that involve some degree of flattery so that you can make him feel like he’s in the spotlight. Even encourage him to boast about himself a little. 
      Whatever you do, avoid contradicting him or making him feel embarrassed, especially in public. If you have to express something that may be seen as critical of him, do so in private and in as positive a way as possible. Avoid the temptation to “match” his stories, he’ll see this as “one upping.” Be sure to recognize how great his accomplishments are before adding to the conversation by telling him about a time when you achieved similar accomplishments. 
      Sending Love!
