I can really understand why you would want to get a Leo man’s attention and spark his interest in you. He is such a romantic, and making him a little jealous can sometimes add fuel to the fire of his passion.

Does that sound good? Well, then you have come to the right place! Let me show you 6 very flirty ways to make a Leo man jealous and capture his attention once again…and keep him hooked on you:

What Makes A Leo Man Jealous?

Jealousy is an emotion we all feel, but Leo men especially. This comes down to their natural ego and need for validation. These guys really enjoy it when the attention is on them and when they feel like they are the centre of the world.

They thrive on admiration and compliments, and when they see someone else getting attention that they feel belongs to them, it can trigger their jealousy. Another thing that makes a Leo man jealous is when he feels like he is losing your interest or that your attention is being diverted elsewhere.

This can be really tough for him because he is the type of guy to have an expectation of his partner to constantly validate and appreciate him. He wants to be the one who makes your heart skip a beat, and any threat to that can stir up his jealousy.

His ego can be very fragile, he may perceive a lack of attention or affection from you as a sign of you losing interest in him. In ways, he is actually very sensitive and vulnerable underneath his strong and confident exterior.

Relationships may rock his world, but they also can lead him to feel quite a bit of insecurity and fear of being replaced or overshadowed. Therefore, it is important to approach making a Leo man jealous with caution and sensitivity as he may not handle it as well as you might think.

Do Leo Men Get Jealous Easily?

Leo men have a tendency to get jealous easily due to their strong need for attention and validation. This man is a fixed fire sign, which means that he is passionate and intense in everything he does, including his emotions.

And when it comes to love, Leo men are known for their possessive nature. They want to feel like they are the only ones in your world and that you prioritize them above all else.

And if this is not the case, it can be a bit of a shock to his system and trigger his jealousy. He is one of those guys who will easily show his emotions when he feels uncomfortable with something, so in short, yes, Lep men do get jealous easily.

How To Make A Leo Man Jealous? 6 Flirty Ways To Drive A Leo Man Crazy

Making your Leo man jealous is an easy way to spark his interest again, here are 6 flirty ways to make a Leo man jealous:

Not Paying You Enough Attention

When the Leo man isn’t paying enough attention to you then you need to try pulling back from him a little bit. He’ll go nuts when you aren’t paying him constant attention.

Don’t pull back too much or he’ll think you’re abandoning him or ignoring him which isn’t good. However, you can flirt with pulling back just enough to get his attention and make him want more from you.

This would include making plans with other people rather often. You can make plans with your girlfriends or family. Every now and then when he wants to make plans with you, you can tell him that you already had something going on.

Again, I wouldn’t do this too often because if you do, he’s going to think you don’t want him and it will have the opposite effect so be very careful what you do and how much you deny him your affection.

This is something you should only attempt if he’s starting to ignore you or not give you the adoration you want back from him. He needs to realize that to get, he has to give.

Flirt With Other People

When you’re out with your Leo guy and you happen to be around other guys, try smiling a lot and making it seem as though you’re open to them flirting with you. Of course, if they do, let them.

He will not like it. If he hasn’t been giving you the affection you deserve, then this will show him that he needs to step up or he could lose you. Leo men are territorial and possessive.

If he’s serious about you, he won’t let it happen. He might walk over and intervene in the situation and pull you out, or he’ll walk up and kiss you in front of everyone. He wants them to know you’re taken.

A Leo man isn’t afraid of being affectionate in public, either. In fact, he rather likes it because he wants the world to know that you’re with him and he’s got you. It’s a “strut your stuff” type of behavior.

Since he is the lion, he wants to display his worthiness, strength, and the fact that he owns his jungle. That includes his lady love. It is a man thing, but as long as you can get past this, everything will work alright.

Talking To Others

I don’t recommend taking on this particular method if you don’t have to, but if you feel desperate then perhaps you can do it. This method means actually texting, social media, or talking on the phone with other guys.

They don’t have to be men of interest or anything like that. I’d say that just guy friends would do the trick. When you tell him “so and so is just a friend”, he may accept it the first time but then when you keep doing it, he will worry.

This will make him stand up and speak to you. He’ll let you know it’s not alright for you to talk to other guys and he’s uncomfortable with you having male friends that you talk to with frequency.

At that point, you can then address exclusivity if it hasn’t been there. He’s more likely to agree to that now because he won’t want to lose you. Just keep in mind that if he’s not committed to you, he may not actually care.

This means that if you do this, it’s a risk. He may think you’re not worth the effort in his life and so he’ll just move on. This is something you really need to consider and think about before you try.

Be Honest and Open

If you feel things are not right, talk to your Leo guy. It may not seem like the easiest thing in the world to do but it’s better for you to know where things stand than to try to do things in order to get his attention.

Be honest and up front with him. If you’re not into casual dating then let him know at the start that you’re looking for something long term and committed. If he isn’t into it, he’ll certainly let you know.

It’s far better to be real with him than to sneak around trying risky tactics to get him to pay attention to you. If he’s not being affectionate enough, tell him you need more.

When he’s spending more time out or working, let him know you’d like a little more of his time. He may actually appreciate you being truthful and candid with him instead of playing head games.

Showcase Your Social Life

Engage more actively with your social circle and share your experiences with him, especially the fun and exciting ones. When a Leo man sees that you’re having a great time without him, it may trigger a sense of competition and desire for your attention.

This could motivate him to step up his game and show more interest in you. Just ensure that you’re genuinely enjoying your life and not fabricating stories just to make him jealous, as that could backfire if discovered.

Make sure you have lots of fun and interesting hobbies to fill up your life so that it shouldn’t be too far-fetched when you start posting pictures or sharing stories of your adventures and social events.

This can create a sense of curiosity in the Leo man and make him wonder what he’s missing out on. I promise he is likely going to feel pangs of jealousy and want to be a part of your exciting life.

Celebrate Your Achievements

Leos often pride themselves on their success and like to be the centre of admiration. By focusing on your own accomplishments and receiving recognition from others, you can draw some attention away from him.

Share your triumphs with mutual friends or on social media, ensuring your Leo man hears about your successes through the grapevine. His innate desire to be in the limelight might prompt a response as he tries to regain some of the attention.

Remember, this is a man who is seduced by status and prestige, so showcasing your achievements in a humble yet confident manner can make him see you in a different light and potentially spark feelings of jealousy.

He is the type of guy to want to be in a power couple with a woman who is capable and accomplished, so highlighting your own accomplishments can make him realize what he might be missing out on if he doesn’t step up his game.

Is It Good To Make A Leo Man Jealous?

Unfortunately, I sometimes feel that jealousy is a bit of a necessary evil in a relationship with a man, especially a guy like your Leo man. Jealousy can be a powerful emotion that can highlight the importance of someone in our lives and drive us to make changes.

It is important to strike a balance between nurturing a healthy level of jealousy and not crossing the line into toxic manipulation. It is a dangerous dance to play with someone’s emotions and can easily backfire if not approached with caution.

So it is really important to make sure that you know what you are doing, but that you are also totally aware of the consequences of your actions because it can definitely backfire if you are not careful about what you are doing.

Are Leo Men Jealous And Possessive?

Leo men have a natural tendency to be possessive and jealous, especially when it comes to their romantic partners. They are not the type of men who are comfortable sharing their loved ones’ attention with others.

I would say that Leo men are definitely more prone to jealousy and possessiveness compared to other zodiac signs. They are not good with sharing and can become protective and possessive when it comes to their partners.

However, it is important to note that every individual is unique and may exhibit different levels of jealousy and possessiveness. He may have other things in his chart that make him less jealous.

Is Your Leo Man Distant After Intimacy?

Does your Leo man pull away or get quiet when you’ve just had a deep emotional connection? Does he seem to disappear just when you thought he was getting closer? Have you felt confused by his hot and cold behavior?

If so, then he might have an avoidant attachment style.

He could be Dismissive Avoidant and completely terrified of commitment…

Or he could be Fearful Avoidant and REALLY want commitment, but get scared when he feels himself getting closer to you.

If he has either one of these attachment styles, you’re going to end up feeling extremely confused at times. And both are caused by childhood trauma.

When you can see the scared little boy inside him that had to shut down his feelings if he’s dismissive avoidant… Or have a parent not provide his needs consistently if he’s fearful avoidant…

It can make it easier to have empathy and compassion for his confusing and frustrating behavior. 

But that won’t fix it.

And while advice on attachment styles can be helpful… What you really need to stop this frustrating hot and cold cycle is to understand him better.

Thankfully, there is a simple system to TRULY understand how he ticks based on his astrology. It will stop him from pulling back when you begin feeling closer. And it will accomplish this in only 30 days.

So no more crying yourself to sleep when your Leo man pulls back… No more feeling incredibly confused. And no more wondering what in the heck is going on with him…

Even if he has an avoidant attachment style.

Click here now to turn things around with your Leo man in 30 days or less.
