What Does It Mean When A Leo Man Is Quiet
Leo men are very passionate, which makes their anger flare up. They emotionally lash out, and sometimes this makes them become silent, cold, or change their behavior toward you.
When a Leo man goes quiet, you’re going to need to look at what’s happened recently, if anything. Has there been something building that he just cannot cope with regarding your relationship?
Has everything gone relatively normal between the two of you, but he seems to be “off” when he’s around as though something is bothering him? Maybe he’s stressed out about something not related to you.
The thing about Leo men is that they are moody and can get very upset about what we perceive as small things. To them, it’s a big ordeal, and they’re reacting to it. It could be something very simple that he’s overcomplicated.
Knowing what his temperament is like, can you tell the difference between him being in a bad mood, being depressed, or just being upset with you? That’s what you have to figure out before you can truly pin down what to do about it.
4 Possible Reasons Why A Leo Man Pulls Away
He Had A Bad Day Or Week
If the Leo guy is having a hard time dealing with something going on in his life, he’ll often go quiet. He doesn’t want to go off the rails on a tirade. If he isn’t too close to you, he’s not going to want to open up to you about it.
Only when Leo feels he can absolutely trust his partner will he open up and discuss what’s going on and why he’s having a hard time. He would not want anyone to see him as weak or unable to handle things.
He certainly wouldn’t want a lady he’s interested in thinking he can’t handle a bad day, so he’ll just go quiet and try to work things out on his own. This can sometimes mean a Leo man ignoring your texts or calls.
If it’s only hours or days, try not to take it too personally. He needs a little space here and there to take care of his own issues. It’s a very normal thing, and likely, if it’s not you that’s the problem, he’ll end up letting you know when he is ready.
Sometimes he can be dealing with some crappy work situations that he just doesn’t want to discuss. He may also have family problems and doesn’t want to open up about them because he’s not that serious with you yet.
He will talk to you when or if he’s ready, and you shouldn’t worry about it. Only when it lasts longer and he’s not talking to you should you consider worrying that it’s something relative to you. So, don’t worry if a Leo man is acting distant right away; be patient.
He Had A Bad Day At Work
It is not easy for everyone to deal with setbacks and bad days at work, especially for a Leo man. He may not share this with you and, most likely, will leave you guessing.
Don’t go that way because your imagination will be plotting against you while, in fact, the reason why Leo man pulls away is simple and doesn’t involve you at all.
In times like these, you should leave him to reflect on his situation, perhaps take a break, and process it alone.
Chances are, if he’s dealing with other things in his life, it could just be something that has nothing to do with you. If you don’t ask him what is going on, you won’t know, and you’ll act offended and hurt.
Leo man has a strong ego that would make him occasionally withdraw and heal. If he is overwhelmed and goes silent, tell him you will be there for him if he needs you, but that is it. Step back, don’t initiate the conversation, don’t be demanding, and don’t assume everything is about you!
There is always a reason why a Leo man is hot and cold, but at times like these, you should give him some space.
Leo men are sensitive and may retreat into silence when they are upset or hurt. What matters to you is being patient and understanding.
His Feelings Are Hurt, His Pride Is Wounded
Whether it was you or someone else, the Leo guy could be withdrawing because he took a hit to his ego or pride. This would mean someone told him he’s not all that or that he’s not as good as he thinks he is.
This may have been you in an argument or it may have been someone else that he thought he could rely on. When Leo’s pride is tampered with, he will pull back and will retreat.
If it was you who wounded him, you’re going to have to apologize and tell him that you still care deeply for him. This will work if you didn’t really mean it. If you tell him that with insincerity though, he’ll read you like a book and he’ll break it off.
In the case that it was someone else who wounded him, you can work your magic by building him back up. Tell him that person doesn’t know what they’re talking about and that he’s a wonderful man.
Tell him and show him how much you appreciate his worth. He’ll pick himself back up off the floor and get back to his normal self. It’s easier when it’s other people because he trusts you more.
He Wants Out
If the Leo man sees that things are not going to work out with you the way he thought they would or hoped they would, he will become icy and pull back. It’s his way of letting you know what is on the way.
In fact, he will normally just go ahead and call it off if he knows for sure that you’re not what he’s looking for. Take him at face value if he says this to you because he’s being truthful.

Ultimately when your Leo guy goes silent, give him some time first. Let him sort his feelings out. It may have nothing to do with you and he’ll talk when he’s ready. If it does have something to do with you, he’ll let you know or he’ll stop talking altogether.
Why A Leo Man Suddenly Becomes Distant When Everything Seemed To Be Going Well?
One of the possible meanings when a Leo man goes distant is that he is not sure of his feelings for you, which makes him demonstrate hot and cold behavior.
When he’s not feeling what he wants, he might withdraw to think it over. He needs to decide if he’s willing to try to make it work or if he wants to just move on.
Leo men are notorious for moving on and finding other sources of excitement. Some will actually cheat because they aren’t yet ready to let go of their partner, but they’re seeking out what they feel they’re missing.
If the excitement or newness fades for him, he may find himself questioning if this is the right relationship for him. This is actually not uncommon. The woman he will stay with and be loyal to will be the one who gives him a steady stream of what he wants.
It does seem rather shallow, but unless a Leo man is 100% committed to you, there is that off chance that his silence may be because he’s thinking of moving on or has already moved on without letting you know.
If you feel this could be the case, you’ll need to just go ahead and ask him so you can get closure. You need to move on yourself. Otherwise, you’ll torture yourself wondering if you did something wrong. You don’t deserve that.
Get your answers, and then go ahead with your own life if he doesn’t feel the relationship is worth it anymore. There is no need to lower your standards to be what he desires.
What Do You Do When A Leo Man Pulls Away
This isn’t the popular answer, ladies, but the Leo man sometimes won’t tell you things unless you ask him. Communication is very important if you want to make it last with him and stop Leo from being distant.
If he’s being shady, ignoring you, or acting as though he doesn’t want to talk, you’re going to have to confront him. The thing is, you’re going to have to realize that it could bring up the truth.
What I mean by that is, if he’s unhappy with you, he’s going to tell you. That may result in a breakup or an argument. You need to know the truth, though. You deserve to know what is going on.
If it has something to do with you, then maybe you two can work it out by talking. If it has nothing to do with you, then at least he can tell you that and perhaps ask you for space.
Yes, the worst-case scenario is him realizing that it’s too stressful for him and breaking it off. However, he may go the other direction and appreciate the fact that you care enough about him to ask him what is wrong.
When the Leo man isn’t up for talking when you suggest it or if he’s ignoring your calls, texts, or perhaps emails, you’re going to have to be very direct about this. You’re going to have to message or text him your plan.
Tell him something like, “I don’t know what’s wrong, and I’d like to talk about it. I’m concerned about you; I’m here for you when you want to discuss it”. That leaves the ball in his court.
It also lets him know that you’re aware that something isn’t right and that you’d be up for talking about it. Just be prepared that it could go either way. However, you need to know the truth for your own peace of mind.
Leo Man Disappears After Intimacy — What Can You Do?
The Leo man in general needs attention almost constantly in his life. His sex life is no different. A Leo man craves pleasure in new and innovative ways. This makes him open to trying new things and perhaps answers your question about why Leo is so cold.
If a Leo man disappears after intimacy, avoid calling him and flooding his inbox with messages. He needs time to reflect on his emotions and thoughts.
However, if his disappearance has made you confused, you should communicate openly about it. Tell him how you feel, be calm, and ask him to explain his behavior. Don’t jump to conclusions and assume the worst!
If you want to keep him in a relationship with you alone, you had better be prepared to keep the fires burning in intimacy. When he becomes bored, he shuts off and would just rather not bother.
