Does Ignoring A Leo Man Work? Find Out Here

No matter what you may be going through with him, ignoring a Leo man is not going to be the answer. Keep reading for more information.

Ignoring a Leo man is probably one of the worst things you can do to him. With some guys, the “no contact” rule works, but if you are planning on working things out with your Leo man, I wouldn’t advise it!

Leo men desire lots of attention. While he may ignore you when he’s upset, he will not take kindly to it going the other way. No matter what you may be going through with him, ignoring a Leo man is not the answer to his silent treatment.

So, if you’re thinking about ignoring a Leo man, then think again. Don’t know what to expect when you ignore a Leo man? Well, keep on reading to find out, because this is what happens when you ignore a Leo man…

Does Ignoring A Leo Man Work?

No matter what you may be going through with your Leo guy, ignoring him is not going to be the answer.

A Leo man thrives on attention and adoration. When you’re not giving it to him, he will try to punish you, flirt with other women, or even possibly cheat. So, having this in mind, please note that ignoring a Leo man doesn’t work.

It’s not wise to take the route of giving him his “own medicine” when it comes to silent treatment. This may actually push him to do things he wouldn’t otherwise do, and you’ll regret it.

A Leo man wants to hear how wonderful he is; he wants to feel useful, complimented, and appreciated. If he isn’t feeling any of these things from the woman he loves, he will flee the scene.

Some of them will seek out attention from other women to satisfy what their partner isn’t giving them, and some will simply close themselves off from their mate, while others will just walk away entirely.

Here’s more on how to compliment a Leo man (what he likes to hear from a woman) <<

What Happens When You Ignore A Leo Man

If you think ignoring a Leo man will win his attention, you’re very wrong. This is a risk that is probably best not taken. A Leo man will turn on you if he feels that he’s not getting the attention he deserves from you.

He isn’t one of the guys that will come chasing after you when you give him the cold shoulder. He’ll just figure you don’t really want him anymore, and he’ll move on. Leo men are notorious for moving on very quickly with someone new.

A Leo man can walk into a bar and demand the attention of many females in the vicinity even if you are ignoring his text, let alone his calls. Blocking a Leo man has the same effect.

You neglect to give him attention intentionally, which will break your heart. He doesn’t have the stomach for it and isn’t going to chase you. He’s going to say “alright then” and continue forward.

If you think of playing mind games with a Leo man, think again. Don’t do it! Seriously, Leo doesn’t operate that way and will drop you quicker than you can say “sorry”.

Ignoring A Leo Man After A Breakup — Will He Come Back After No Contact?

If a Leo man doesn’t break it off, then he’ll keep doing things behind your back until you finally have enough and do the breaking up yourself. Either way, it started with you ignoring him, thinking you’d get more of his affection. Wrong approach!

When you want more attention or affection from your Leo man, you need to be totally honest about it and ask him for more. You also need to be showing him the same type of emotion; otherwise, he’ll feel it’s one-sided.

Here’s how to show your love to a Leo man <<

When a Leo man has no idea you’re upset, he’ll have no idea how he screwed up or how he can fix it. You’ve got to be honest with him. Besides, Leo looks for a woman who will build a bond with him, and that includes being open.

Leo won’t think twice about jumping out of a relationship he thinks is too toxic, too restrictive, or doesn’t give him what he ultimately needs. Think about that for a minute.

When you ignore him, he feels like a child that isn’t getting nurtured, and so he’ll try to find that nurturing somewhere else. This could lead him into the arms of another woman. Don’t ever take a Leo man’s loyalty and love for granted.

Will A Leo Man Break The Silence First After A Fight?

It typically doesn’t take too long for a Leo man to start chasing a woman he thinks is “the one.” As soon as he realizes you’re everything he could ever dream of, he’ll be sprinting after you, so there is no point in ignoring a Leo man.

Be very careful how you talk to him, how you treat him, and how you react to the things he does or says. If he’s doing something wrong, talk to him about it. Don’t leave him hanging. If you have a big fight, he will reach out to you first because he cares, but you should not continue to ignore him but engage in the conversation.

Tell him exactly what you’re missing, what you need, what you want, and what he isn’t providing for you. If he’s a true Leo man who loves you, he’ll do whatever he can to fix it and make you appreciative of his love again. This is one of the ways a Leo man will commit to you.

He isn’t one to quit, but if he gets ignored, that’s his deal-breaker. Watch out!

If you’re angry with him, tell him why you’re angry and explain how it hurt you. Never leave things unsaid because he won’t understand and you’ll end up carrying painful baggage that was unnecessary.

Struggling to understand his signals or not sure what to tell him so your relationship can go to the next stage? Then don’t miss out on my Leo Man Love Language guide… As soon as you start to speak his language, everything else will fall right into place.

How To Punish A Leo Man And Let Him Know He’s Hurt You

The Leo man is often seen as an arrogant type of guy who is mostly “in it” for himself. He makes it seem as though he’s better than everyone else, and he’s the best at what he does.

While it may be true that he’s the best at what he does, he is a bit overconfident about it. He seems like he’s all about himself, only concerned with what he wants, and that only his opinions mean anything.

If he has hurt you and you want to let him know how you feel, don’t chase him! It is unnecessary and ineffective. This will only drift him further away from you. Instead, do not prioritize him; show him that you are going well without him, and he will realize that he made a mistake by hurting you.

The best way is to give him the silent treatment, but only for a couple of days. It will also help you to cool off your head and talk to him without being too temperamental.

Getting things out in the open may help him work on trying to develop his relationship with you better or open up to give you another chance. As long as you let him know how he has hurt you and what he needs to do to make things right.

FAQ On Leo Man Ignoring You

Are you struggling to figure out why your Leo man ignores you? Well, luckily for you I have compiled questions that might come up in your relationship. Hopefully, this can help you navigate your relationship with your Leo man.

How Do Leos React To Being Ignored?

If you decide to ignore him despite the warnings I’m giving you, be prepared for him to walk away from you for good. I cannot say this any clearer or nicer. He doesn’t like to be pushed off to the side.

He will move on, and he may go ahead and find another woman who is willing to give him what he wants. Then you’ll have no chance of getting him back. Ignoring his calls, and texts, or blowing him off will make him want to dump you.

How Long Can A Leo Man Go Without Talking To You?

Usually from a few days to several weeks. However, if circumstances are very serious and he can no longer trust you, then it would take him a couple of months to reflect on the situation and decide if he would like to continue the relationship or move forward.

Stop Worrying 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…

  1. Thank you so much for this info. I’m currently going through a very rough situation with a Leo! My situation is a very sensitive one and he is conflicted to be with me. He has said to go on life without him because of our “situation”. We both want each other but he feels bad for me and how I will be “able to do certain things” to be with him in the future.We have strong feelings for each other.He is conflicted with his feelings and our situation to be together.
    I want him back in my life despite on my end situation and want a life with him !!
    I know our future would be wonderful and happy. I’m sad and heartbroken over him not in my life right now!! -Heather Wallace

    1. Hi Heather Wallace!

      I’m sorry to hear you’re having a troublesome situation with your Leo guy. It sounds as though he’s confused and not really set one way or the other. This is actually good news because it could mean that there is still hope as he hasn’t totally given up. Though, I wouldn’t ignore him anymore. I’d reach out and try the friendship route and see if you cannot get back in there with time and patience.

      1. I was in a long distance relationship with Leo man. After 6 months he lost interest due to distance and ofcourse my trust issues. And this is the second time he has broken up with me. Will no contact rule work to get him back? He wrote me a 6 paragraph email saying he still love me however this distance and Corona virus making him feel hopeless and see no light at the end of the tunnel. Please help what should I do to get him back. He said he has to break up while still in love as he can’t cope in a long distance relationship.

        1. Hi Celine!

          Well since you two have already broken up twice, I don’t know if the no contact rule will work in this case. You can certainly try though. Better to try than not. You might find success. Leo men like lots of attention and when they aren’t getting it, they miss the person who was giving it to them. It’s kind of an ego thing and is a lifeline. If he truly cares for you then this method would work. It’s a gamble but hey… try it. If you need more tips, please check out my series “Leo Man Secrets”.

  2. I wasn’t expecting this article to be like this. But a leo man or any other man is not the last resort and nobody should be trying to desperately be someone their not or fawn over someone if it’s not in their character. if we wants to go, PLEASE go!

    1. Hi nikki!

      I’m not sure what you thought the article would be like. Leo men are all about themselves. They do love people and humanity but when it comes to their personal lives, they want what they want and how they want it. People need to learn to compromise. No one has to particularly change but they do have to find middle ground in order to make things flow. Communication has to be there or it won’t work. That goes for all relationships, not just for Leo men. I hope this helps!

      1. People always say communication but if you don’t comprehend then it’s not going to work. Leo’s are definitely all about themselves and never want to compromise let alone meet in the middle. They are one of the most selfish and cold signs I’ve ever met man wise. It’s thier way or the highway and they most definitely love public attention. You can give them all the attention in the works and they will still look for it publicly. Honestly I think they make better friends than a significant other.

  3. I really like my Leo, we’re compatible and the sex is amazing but he’s fresh out of a serious relationship and probably emotionally unavailable. I’m Taurus… How do I balance my possessiveness in a casual situation? It’s like either I’m doing too much and feeling neglected myself or not enough and driving him away??‍♀️

    1. Hi NeNe!

      Well if you two are compatible and everything looks really good between you then just take your time. Take it nice and slow and with the time that passes, it will reveal whether or not you two will work out for the long term. No need to hurry things along. Don’t neglect yourself though honey. You need attention too.

  4. I like this leo guy and he knows how I feel but he’s been hurt and won’t let me in. He operates as he’s interested but he’s saying he’s too dark etc. but we always come back to each other. He told me he’s really to fall but when I asked if it could be me he’s said he doesn’t know. I know Leo’s like pursuing and praising but every time I pursue he shuts off. He’s really perfect magnetic force of a man and I never felt this way before, I am also usually the first one to dip but there’s something so spevial about him, but he won’t tell me to go, instead he hides. Is this worth it, what should I do?

    1. Hi Lele!

      Yes normally it takes for a Leo man to have been badly burned for him to not want to let someone new in. The good news is though, when you’re patient with him, he’ll eventually let his walls down. Just take care of you, do what you need to do and let him come around when he’s finally really ready. He’ll show you with his actions and not just words. Hang in there! If you need more help, read my book “Leo Man Secrets”.

  5. Hi am Nia I think I have accused my leo man of cheating I’ve apologize but he has only seen my mssg but has not answered any,what could be the reason, wondering now if he’s gonna leave

    1. Hi Nia!

      He shouldn’t be reacting that badly unless maybe he did cheat and doesn’t know what to say to you. People make mistakes and if your accusation was a mistake, he should be willing to forgive you unless you’ve done it before. Now you’re going to have to wait to see how he responds to your apology. There is more you need to learn about Leo man. If you need more help, read my book “Leo Man Secrets”.

  6. I’ve been dating and having sex with this leo guy for a month now. When we were still chatting back then he said he is interested in me. When we finally get to date the first time he said “What are we?” . He seemed like he wants to have a relationship with me. But after dating several times he seems distant. Lately it’s been going worse, his reasons are he fell asleep, he’s been busy doing his stuff, or whatever. He returns my messages after hoooouuurs. HELP ME. I think Im getting attached and i dont know what to do.. I dont know if Im just overreacting because I’m already attached to this leo guy, or that he’s just really busy just like what he says.

    1. Hi Andrea!

      Hmm.. it sounds like you need to directly ask him. Tell him how you’re feeling and tell him that it feels as though he’s been pulling back. If he says that he’s just busy then you’re going to have to take his word for it. Tell him you miss how you two were before but that if he’s busy that you understand. You’ll have to have patience and wait for him to make time. He will make time if he truly cares for you! If you need more help, read my book “Leo Man Secrets”.

      1. Hi Anna , not sure if i can get a response …but anyway am facing a situation with a Leo guy ..he’s my senior, ( I’m 16 ) he’s always guided me , care about me and even got me a chocolate during National girlfriend day .He keep coming close to me and as month passes, i’ve developed strong feeling towards him & so I confessed to him…He didn’t reject but say his priority is putting focus on his final year end exam but we continue texting & interecting with each other consistently..air drop each other and he say stuff like ILY..
        Then one day he told me that he had changed his mobile number , One day I happened to discover it was a fake number and asked him about it..He admitted and say he didn’t know why he did it so I take the chance to ask if he has any feeling for me , he replied ” No ” and everyt he say or did are not genuine, he just only enjoyed my company & attention but he requested if we can put all these unhappiness behind & go back as before ..I never agreed nor disagree therefore he continued coming to me and so we continued as usual..
        Until last week, 19 October 2022 , he confronted me that I went out having fun enjoying with BOYS ( but they are my classmates , a mixture of girls n boys ) while he’s at home preparing for his final year exam..I asked what he actually want from me,he replied ” I want you to wait for me cause I just need some time..” I’ve told him, I’ve given him enough time & chance to be sure of his feeling but he continued telling me that he has no feeling for me not once but twice so I end up saying he will meet someone better…and our conver end..

        Today 25 October 2022 , we had another talk because I’ve found out of his interaction with a girl ( she likes him way before me but been rejected by him many times and he even told me how much he despised her last time )

        He admitted they have been interacting since Aug 2022 after his birthday when she wished him a HBD..I asked if he likes her , ” I fancy her, our rs is both way but we are only in a talking stage rn ” therefore I asked him why still ask me to wait and say he just need more time..He replied he was confused at that time but he feel that we have been taking too long..? He came since the starts of 2022 but we only started closer during April 2022…He say he enjoyed all the stuff that the other girl did ( this girl will go to his class to wait for him eventhough he rejected her & everyone in school knew she likes him )
        He say all his friend dl her , finding her annoying therefore he use me as a cover since the start so that his friend won’t find out that he actually enjoyed what this girl did..Our conver end up with him.saying ” I guess this is the end ” …

        I felt so confised as I sincerely able to feel that this guy do have feeling for me but I have no idea what went wrong & why he choose this way to hurt me…

        I’m hurt and disappointed but I do not know what to do ?? Should I go to him again ? Continue have hope on him ? ( he’s very active in looking at my ig )

        He has a best best bubby whom we are close too , I feel like telling him about what he did to me otherwise I felt so used ??

        Please help !!!

  7. Hi Anna,
    Thank you so much for the useful content.
    I am not in a relationship with the Leo man I am asking for. We are colleagues and we see each other for a couple of minutes once or twice per week when he is passing by certain area in the office.
    Recently he started to flirt intensely with his eyes but never started talking to me, just saying Hello.
    I didn’t answer to his greeting once as I was talking to someone else, and next time he didn’t say anything and just passed by me.
    He is the one to greet me always.
    I don’t know what to do and if he is interested at all. I don’t know if I should start a conversation or he is just bored and the intense eye contacts we a couple of times were just an occasional thing for him.
    Thank you for your advice on this situation.
