If you’re involved with a Leo man and feeling like he may break things off, here are some things that you really need to know. Perhaps you’ve thought of breaking it off but not sure how he will react or you’ve already broken up and want him back. Keep reading for all the ins and outs of the Leo man breakup. It will help you with why he would break it off, how he reacts when broken up with, and if he’s the type that may take you back once things have gone badly already.
Why He Would Break It Off
There are a few reasons why a Leo man would break it off but all of them more or less involve breaking his pride in half. If anything happens that makes him feel less than himself and less than amazing, he will consider calling it quits.
Here are a few reasons that you may or may not know as to why a Leo man would want to break up with you. Keep in mind that he is an ego driven type of man and so he thinks about what’s best for him and thus what he perceives best for “all”.
That may not be the case though but it’s what he thinks. This could make him commit some terrible mistakes that he doesn’t know how to rectify or even try to fix. He is embarrassed and may just want to move on.
The 5 most common reasons Leo man breaks up:
He Isn’t Getting Enough Adoration
Leo man lives on the attention he gets and he expects his partner to live up to the role of giving him the most attention of anyone else in his life. This is not hard for awhile but at some point it becomes taxing and somewhat annoying for some women.
You would figure that things would calm down a bit after the “honeymoon” phase of the relationship but he will still expect you to stay the same in giving him compliments and adoration.
When you don’t he’s ready to give you the axe and send you packing. He may even just go ahead and find what he wants elsewhere and then dump you for someone else.
When He Feels Rejected
Perhaps you’ve decided to do your own thing on a more frequent basis and without him glued to your hip. He is alright with it happening sometimes but on a continual basis will make him feel rejected.
Though you may not be rejecting him, he’ll see it that way because he doesn’t know how to accept that his partner has a life outside of him and it’s healthy. Feeling rejected will again, cause him to want to end things.
It may also send him into the arms of someone who is giving him attention or showing interest in him. It makes him feel whole again. He is always seeking out adoration wherever he can get it.
Embarrassment or Criticism
The prideful Leo man doesn’t like to be criticized… EVER. If you tell him how he can do something better or point out his flaws, he will take it very personally and you’ll have a roaring lion at your heels.
If you embarrass him in front of friends or family, he will want to distance himself from you. Remember, these things are wounding his pride and that is not something that he allows.
This type of thing will cause him to ice you out and start spending lots more time away from you and eventually ends with the relationship stopping. This may not lead him to cheat but it will cause him to feel you’re disrespectful and he won’t allow for that. He will say goodbye.
Not Being There For Him
Leo man wants a woman who is loyal to him and will be there when he needs her. He wants to be able to vent about his day or anything that went badly. He needs a great listener and someone who cares.
While you may not be one for solutions, you can at the very least, listen to him and let him talk. This will make him feel better and will know you’re there for him when he needs it.
If you do not do these things, he will see this as a betrayal and will not hesitate to retaliate with the same type of behavior and he may also decide it’s not worth it or you’re not worth his time. This would be when a Leo man breakup with you and when decides he’s done with you .
Not Being Appreciative
If Leo man does things for you on a regular basis and you don’t respond with compliments or gratitude, he will think you are using him and you aren’t really that thankful.
This makes him feel as though there is nothing he can do that will make you feel happy enough to reward him for his exemplary behavior with you. He knows he’s doing his very best for you and yet you don’t care.
When you don’t care, he may seek out someone who does care and then decides to leave you behind in the dust. Why would he want to be with someone who doesn’t care whether or not he does things for her out of love?
All these reasons are huge ordeals to the Leo man and are things he considers when he wants to end a relationship or even to find someone else who will fill his needs and desires.
Fulfilling Your Leo Man’s Needs
Leo man is willing to go above and beyond for the woman he loves but he does expect some adoration to pay him back for all his efforts. It’s the least she can do, in his mind.
I mentioned reasons he may want to break up. There is one other thing that may be a big deal breaker for him and that is a lack of sex. Leo man is very physical and enjoys having sex quite often.
Though he can settle for a normal amount of sex typically, if you start withdrawing or pulling back from him on a physical level, he will take this as an insult or wound to his pride.
The man craves intimate contact. Even such things as kissing and holding hands are important to him. When you stop doing that, you’re showing him that you aren’t into him anymore thus making him consider breaking it off.
If this isn’t where you’re head is at, you need to look at what vibes you are giving off. When you really love your Leo man and know what his needs are, you have to keep up with him otherwise it’s going to be a real struggle.
Leo man can be hard to handle, he can be moody, and he can be aggressive. However, when he loves his partner, he will still do what he can for her. Though he may fight with you, you have to be the bigger person and find a solution.
He downright throws tantrums sometimes. You’ll have to be the cool and collected one that gets him to listen to reason. However, if you’re all that but you’re not giving him what he needs physically, he may not listen.
This all stems back to his pride and ego. Everything that goes against him feeling good is virtually a threat and thus he will address it as such. You want to keep your Leo man happy? You’re going to have to suck it up sometimes.
If you get into it, tell him you need space for a few minutes to gather your thoughts. That way you can calm yourself down and not get into anything that is too heated thus not saying things you may regret.
Too much conflict for too long will make him lose his desire to be in the relationships. So when you’re trying to tell him something is wrong or you don’t like what he’s doing, pick your battles and words very carefully.
He Will Test Your Patience
Leo men know how to push it to the limit when they’re with someone. It’s not that they’re doing it on purpose either. They’re just trying to vent and get out all their frustration but they neglect to understand their partner’s needs also.
They do not get that they look like a temperamental child on a regular basis and that it’s hard for you to cope with sometimes. Sadly the only way they get it is when you actually calmly tell them that you also have issues of your own.
They sometimes forget they are the only ones that have problems. He needs to be reminded that though you’re there for him, you also need to vent on occasion and he needs to listen.
Communication with your Leo man is very important. If you don’t have it, this can cause friction which leads to a break up for either one of you. You’d leave because you’ve had it with his crap.
He’d leave because he feels you’re insensitive to his needs. This may not even be the case but his perception at the time is all he thinks of. He thinks of his needs only and wants to fulfill those.
You will need to be patient with him and learn how to express your own feelings to him in a way that will get his attention but not make him feel like an idiot. Remember, talk to him without name calling or belittling him. Do NOT wound his ego or he will lash out.
Is There Still a Chance?
Perhaps you broke up with him in a hasty manner because you got fed up with his rants or temper. Yet you remember why you fell in love with him in the first place and it leads you to want him back.
What will he do? Well, you’ll be lucky if he hasn’t already moved on. Leo men are known for moving onto the next very quickly. He wastes no time. The next woman who pays attention to him and gives him what he wants, he’s willing to see if a relationship can be had.
This would be bad for you naturally. However, if he IS still single and you want him back, there may still be a chance. How do you work it though? Well that’s easy, remember what he needs.
Tell him you’re sorry for having not thought things through and that you were frustrated. Tell him the reasons you love him and why he’s so fantastic. Remember compliments will get you just about anywhere with Leo man.
He lives on adoration and so when you’re able to give it to him with an apology, you may still very much have a chance with him provided he’s still single. It’s said to say but Leo man is a sucker for a woman “kissing up” to him.
If you want him back bad enough, you’ll do exactly what needs to be done. In the case that he’s moved on already, you’ll have to wait it out and see if the relationship he’s gotten into fails otherwise you can just decide to move on.
Love is a crazy thing with the Leo man. As long as he’s always getting what he wants, he’s a happy lion. If he isn’t, he starts to seek it elsewhere. If he finds it elsewhere, he’ll end what he’s got currently to “go for the gold” with the new person.
If you are trying to avoid a breakup, you’ll need to pucker up those lips and start kissing his arse. If you refuse to do so and he perceives lack of some kind, he will break it off or find someone new.
I know that doesn’t sound like pleasant options but it all depends on how much you love your Leo man and what you’re willing to do to keep him or get him back if you’ve messed up.
