How do you know if your Leo man is cheating on you? No one likes to have that uneasy feeling that something is off, and usually, our gut feeling is right. However, our fears and past hurts may also cloud our judgment, so how can we know for sure what the truth is? Do Leo men cheat?
Most people, in my experience as a Relationship Astrologer, have had the soul-searing experience of being cheated on. Some of us have even been the ones doing the cheating. No one is perfect in the world of love and relationships, and sadly, this has added to many trust issues found in modern couples.
This may have us wondering in a new relationship, if he’s being faithful. Sometimes, we may carry that fear for years in the relationship, suspecting and feeling paranoid. This is why you might wonder how to tell when a Leo man is lying.
How do we know if it’s fear or intuition? Well, most of the time, I’ve found that we women have a very strong gut feeling about cheating. Call it feminine instincts, but we often just know. However, we always want to be validated, just in case we may be wrong because do Leo men lie? Or are they honest?
And also – is Leo the type of guy to cheat? Well, not really. He is a family man and usually, a devoted partner and father. He tends to wholeheartedly love his person, and although he loves attention from others, he’s usually extremely loyal. A Leo man cheating isn’t common.
It takes a lot for him to actually stray, and may only happen if there is a huge rift in the relationship, or if he is feeling ignored or insecure. But this man is not a coward, and often he has the courage to own up when he’s done wrong.
What are some of the first signs a Leo man is cheating on you? This is my no means proof of guilt – remember that – the best thing to do is talk to him and confront him, as he generally will not lie to you.
Do Leo Men Cheat?
There isn’t one sign that cheats more than another in the zodiac. It depends on the individual and if they have a tendency to be unfaithful. I cannot say that all Leo men cheat.
I can say that there may be some Leo men that DO cheat. They may have flaws in them that make them more inclined to cheat than other signs but it doesn’t mean that they will choose to do so.
Leo men are notorious for being flirtatious. This has to do with their need for attention from others. Whether you’re giving him a ton or not giving him enough, he’ll still seek it out from other people.
He’s got to be the center of attention whenever possible. This means that he will push the limits and flirt when he probably shouldn’t. There is also that opportunity for him to take things too far.
If a lady gives him more attention than he expected, he could go overboard and indulge in the moment. Again, this depends on the strength he has and whether or not he is TRULY committed to his partner.
When a Leo man is only partially committed (dating or seeing someone), he may have a tendency to wander. It’s very important that if you start dating a Leo man, you clarify that you at least want exclusivity.
Yes, a Leo man CAN cheat. Will he? Well, that depends on the man himself and how seriously he takes commitment. Some take it very seriously and those are the ones that define Leo’s loyalty.
Are Leo Men Cheaters?
Well, by nature Leo men are very loyal and committed to their relationships. But there is a side to all Leo men that can be very vengeful when they are hurt. So if a Leo man’s ego is hurt, he may lash out and cheat. However, this isn’t true for every one of them.
How To Tell When A Leo Man Is Lying
It is quite easy to tell if a Leo man is lying. These guys are very expressive in the way they communicate. They tend to be very forthcoming and real, and one of their best qualities is that they have so much integrity.
This is why when you notice your Leo man acting a little strange or anxious around certain topics there is a good chance that he might be lying. Have you noticed his body language changing? Observe him closely and see if you notice anything different.
Of course, stress can lead people to act a little differently, but if your gut is telling you something is up, then you should definitely follow it and listen to what your intuition is saying.
Be sure to check his eyes, and if your Leo man looks like he is avoiding eye contact, then something must be up!
11 Telltale Signs A Leo Man Is Cheating On You
1. You Catch Him Flirting With Other Women
This one will make it rather clear that you are not satisfying enough for him so he’s seeking adoration elsewhere. He may be one of those that requires an abundance in ego stroking, and he has to have many women to fulfill this need for him.
When you catch him flirting, he’s showing disrespect to you and is likely not going to commit to you on a permanent basis. A Leo man who is happy and in love with his partner most likely will not want to flirt with other women.
Some sights say that flirting is natural. That is true to an extent. When someone does it constantly, it displays that they are still seeking out something on a much larger scale than something he can get from just one partner.
2. When A Leo Man Is Lying To You
If you ever catch your Leo man lying about ANYTHING, there is a chance he isn’t being truthful about most things. Leo man should always tell you the truth no matter what the consequence.
When he feels he can lie to you about simple things and get away with it, he’ll try other things that are much more destructive just because he thinks he can. If you start noticing him telling lies, it could be a red flag that he could very well cheat.
Beware of a lying man of any sort whether he’s Leo or any other sign. A liar is a liar and liars are very much capable of keeping secret relationships or sex hidden from their partner. Be very careful what he says to you and how he acts.
3. Cheats Once, He WILL Do it Again
This can apply to most signs really. If your Leo man cheats on you once and you forgive him, he’ll think that he can easily do it again because you’ll just forgive him again. There are some that are sincerely regretful but many are not.
I hate to say that cliché of “once a cheat always a cheat” but 9 times out of 10, it’s actually true. There are the rare birds that do it once and feel horrible thus never doing it again.
However, most of them find that if they get away with it, they will continue to do so until their partner puts their foot down and kicks them out the door for good.
4. He Manipulates You
If you understand that your Leo man is manipulating you in ANY way possible, he could possibly cheat on you. When you notice he’s always trying to get you to see it his way or do it his way, he’s a master manipulator.
He should never try to change you or manipulate you to get you to do certain things for or with him. He should always just be honest with you and talk to you about his feelings and/or his needs.
The Leo man may very well try to get you to believe that he’s the man that hung the moon thus you should be grateful for his love. If you EVER feel that way, get out and move on. He’s a controller and likely a cheater.
5. He Distances Himself Or Goes Quiet
If your loving Leo man who used to be super attentive to you is now ignoring you, trying not to be around, or avoids you entirely, he’s likely cheating. If he isn’t then he’s trying to figure out how best to end the relationship.
Either way, if you’re experiencing too much quiet from your Leo man, something is up and you’d do well to talk to him or confront him on what his deal is. Otherwise, he will be shady with you and do what he wants on the side.
This is a HUGE red flag for break up or for cheating. Neither of these is a good thing so it’s good to talk to him and be sure that there aren’t any stagnant feelings between you two.
6. When A Leo Man Ignores You
Leo men are very hands-on and present in the relationship. You are important to him, and he’ll seldom ignore you. If you do find your Leo man ignoring you, such as not replying to messages, or answering your calls, something may be off.
However, make sure it’s not work or family problems that are taking his energy, as he does tend to try to be the provider and protector for everyone around him. The last thing you want to do is make a mistake but not being supportive in his time of need!
7. He’s No Longer Getting Physical With You
Leo men have very powerful libidos, and usually strong physical desires and needs. In fact, when things are going well, you may feel harassed by his constant wanting of you!
If you find that his fire seems to have died, and it’s not from work stress, poor health, family issues, or financial pressure (make very sure you check all of these!), then it’s possible that he could be getting physical with someone else.
Again, simply talk to him, without bruising his ego, and ask him if there is anything that is going on that is making him feel a lack of attraction towards you.
8. He’s Not Looking For Your Validation Anymore
Leo men are always looking for validation – this is part of their nature. They want to be praised and told that they are doing the right thing and that they are good at what they do. Leos need your attention all the time.
If you’ve noticed that he’s suddenly no longer looking for your attention, then he may be getting in from someone else. There could be someone giving him all that validation he craves, and stroking his ego.
If you’re struggling to find the right words to make him feel cherished and want to share his feelings with you, I strongly recommend checking out my 100 Magic Phrases for a Leo Man… It will set you on the right path with your Leo!
9. He’s Paying More Attention To His Appearance
Leo men tend to be rather vain in any case, so this is not always a reliable sign that he’s cheating on you. However, if he has suddenly gone from being relaxed about how he looks, to getting his hair done and buying lots of new clothes, flashy jewelry, or shoes, then you may need to start thinking he could have a new person on the side that he’s showing off for.
Of course, it could also be that he’s just wanting to revamp his image – that does often happen with the Leo guy, so don’t jump to conclusions too quickly!
10. His Confidence Is Soaring
The Leo man is pretty confident, let’s face it. There’s very little that he thinks he can’t do, from work, to love, to money. He’s generally successful and courageous, though, at times, his ego does take a knock.
If his confidence is suddenly soaring more than usual, without a valid reason (doing well at work, for example, or having a new haircut), then it’s possible he has a conquest that he’s visiting regularly, boosting his self-esteem.
This is a hard one to go by, as you can’t exactly call him to in it – tread carefully. Perhaps combine the with a few other signs to be really sure that there could be something going on.
11. He’s Not Around
Is your Leo guy saying that he’s working long hours at the office? He could be, but this is a time-old excuse for having an affair. He may just not be very creative with his excuses, so be sure to somehow, make sure that he really is at the office.
Yes, it’s a bit stalker-y, but if this has been going on for months, and you’ve noticed him cooling down towards you, plus if you have that “gut” feeling then it’s worth swinging past his office with a snack or a gift. And if you’re wrong, then it’s the perfect excuse to make him feel special and spoiled!

Why Would A Leo Man Cheat On His Wife?
Things must’ve gone really sour for a Leo man to cheat on his wife. This man is usually very loyal and committed in his relationships. He gives his relationships all he can because he really believes in love and romance.
However, some Leo men have very fragile egos and they can sometimes act out when they feel like their wife or partner isn’t treating them with the level of love and respect they desire. The problem with Leo men is that they need a lot of attention and admiration.
The Leo men who haven’t really worked on themselves may tend to fall into this trap. They may think that their partner is there to meet all of his needs and he may be quite co-dependent. Life happens, and sometimes this isn’t always possible in a relationship.
This is when a Leo man will step outside of the relationship and look for someone to fill his needs.
How To Deal With A Cheating Leo Man
If you have caught your Leo man cheating then there is definitely a decision that needs to be made. Is cheating a dealbreaker for you or are you willing to address the issue through therapy and counselling?
You need to step up and made the decision that feels right for you. You can give him another chance, or you can walk away. Remember that you always have a choice in the matter and you have more power than you think.
If your Leo man is cheating on you then it is fairly obvious that there are some problems in the relationship. So if you are willing to work through this with him you may be able to move on from this.
Just remember this path is probably not going to be an easy one. Take some time to think about your choices and what it is you want out of this!
What Happens If You Cheat On A Leo Man
If you cheat on a Leo man you can expect him to never take you back again. These guys are not okay with infidelity. This man will probably not forgive you for your transgressions. The Leo man is a one woman kind of man.
He wants to know that the woman he is with respects him and is loyal to him. These values are very important to him. A Leo man wants to be with someone he knows he can depend on in any situation.
Cheating on a Leo man will really hurt him. It is something that will possibly break him and make him lose faith in love. This is because he is such a romantic and believes in true love. If you are thinking of cheating on your Leo man then the two of you clearly have problems.
You might want to address these things with him first rather than being disloyal to him. If you think that the relationship could ever go back to the way it was then you are sorely mistaken. When you cheat on a Leo man you are giving him up forever because cheating is something he will definitely struggle to forgive.
How To Get Over Infidelity And Heal From Cheating
My first suggestion for you is that you make a decision about what you want. Decide whether or not you want to stay with him and work on forgiveness, or if you need to break up with your Leo man.
Neither of these choices are easy, but they are both definitely necessary in your process of healing. If your Leo man does cheat on you, how do you forgive him? That’s going to rely on you and how much of your time you want to give to him. Was it a one-time deal or has he done it multiple times?
With some, if they’ve done it once, they’ll do it again. If they think they can get away with it, they’ll do it as often as they like. My suggestion is, if you catch him, face it right away.
Even if you don’t have concrete proof to present to him, tell him of his actions and tell him you’re done with it. If you need to, you can always seek out counseling or mediation to help you with your Leo guy.
Not all Leo men cheat nor do all of them that do it once, continue to do it. There is such a thing as a mistake and he could make one or have made one. If he truly still loves you though and wants to make it work, he’ll agree to whatever it takes.
Make sure he follows it and make him prove to you that he’ll never abandon you or betray you ever again. Naturally, you’ve learned the signs to look for through all of this so you won’t be fooled again.

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…
