7 Reasons Why A Leo Man Acts Hot And Cold

Is your Leo fella blowing hot and cold? One day into you, and the next, not interested at all? It’s enough to give any girl whiplash – and plenty of insecurities!

Is your Leo fella blowing hot and cold? One day into you, and the next, not interested at all? It’s enough to give any girl whiplash – and plenty of insecurities! Do you take it personally – is this about you? Most of the time, it isn’t. Here are some of the reasons he’s behaving this way: 

Love hurts sometimes. It hurts when we don’t get the attention that we so crave from the man we adore. Sure, we should be turning inward and loving ourselves, but it’s also nice to know we are cherished, right? 

When your normally warm and passionate Leo crush suddenly starts acting hot and cold, it can feel like we did something to make him like or love us less. Us ladies do tend to shoulder that responsibility, but, it’s usually not your fault

The Leo man is a romantic, and he seldom would go hot and cold unless there was something serious going on. Yes, sometimes, it is you, but he’s also not often the type to mess with your head. This is a Zodiac sign that’s looking for commitment, too

Perhaps his ego is getting in the way, or perhaps he has family issues. Maybe it’s a new relationship that he’s still finding his footing with. Let’s explore some of the reasons together, why he could be on and off, which can help you find some peace! 

7 Reasons Why A Leo Man Acts Hot And Cold

1. He’s Not Too Sure Of You Yet

Is this a brand-new relationship? Under six months, or even under a year? Sometimes, expectations can run very high. Too high, in fact. We girls may demand far too much than what someone is ready to give yet, putting pressure onto the relationship

Maybe he needs a bit more time to be sure of you completely. After all – are you sure of him? If you look deep inside, maybe, you may also feel like you’re still figuring things out. That makes it natural to pull away and come back. 

The best advice I can lend, from my years of a Relationship Astrologer, is to simply give things some more time. Let him get comfortable, let yourself get comfortable, and just enjoy the ride!

2. He’s Still Getting Over His Past Relationship

Has your Leo man recently gone through a breakup or divorce? He could be mourning the loss of someone he really cared about, and that’s okay. That doesn’t mean he can’t love you, but it does mean he may need space

This also can be a real reason why you’re finding him hot and cold. Getting over someone takes time, and he is likely the type of guy who really committed to his past partner. If there was a family involved, even more so.

3. His Ego Is Bruised

Leo men have very, very sensitive egos. These are guys who may talk a big talk, but at heart, they are very susceptible to criticism. Is there something you may have said, or have you rejected him in any way – without meaning to? 

It could be the smallest comment, but he really takes it to heart. He could even still be nursing a bruised ego from a past relationship, a problem at work, or in some other area. He may not even notice that he’s acting hot and cold. 

Be there for him, and find out what’s going on in his life – without pushing his ego. There may be more to this than meets the eye! 

4. He’s Being Selfish

The truth is, ladies, Leo can be a pretty selfish Zodiac sign. He doesn’t mean to be, because he is also a very generous sign, too. However, when caught up in his shadow, this man will just never know or see that he’s affecting you in any way. 

He could just be so caught up in his own drama that he’s blowing hot and cold without even realizing it or how it makes you feel. The best thing you can do here is just let him know, in a non-attacking way, that his behavior is making you feel rather uncared for. 

5. He Doesn’t Know Where You Stand

Leo men like to have certainty in life. They are quite controlling in that way, and prefer to be the ones calling the shots. If he has no idea where you stand, or where the relationship is going, he could be acting in a way that is very unpredictable. 

Maybe you’ve unconsciously – or consciously – signaled that you want to see where things go, or that you’re not interested in anything serious. Maybe you meant it when you said that, but also, maybe you didn’t because you just wanted him to feel relaxed.  

Either way, he needs to feel adored, cherished, loved and secure with you. If not, he will drift in and out of the relationship. Proving yourself loving and reliable will help in a huge way to bring him closer to you.

6. He Has Family Issues

Leo is a family sign. If he has kids, they are everything to him. you’ll have to accept that they will always have a place in his heart, more so than you could imagine. 

He also has a certain sense of loyalty to his parents and family of origin. If there are any issues here, such as illness, money problems or anything else, he will likely overreact to it. This can definitely make him blow hot and cold in the relationship. 

Try and find out if there are problems here and give him your very best support. This will bring him that much closer to you, and help him to feel loved and cared for.

7. He’s Not Feeling The Romance

Along with Libra, Leo is the sign of romance and play. They are all about the “honeymoon phase,” and they love the whirlwind of meeting someone and falling in love. They ideally want to keep this phase right through the relationship, if they can. 

If they feel like the romance is missing, the Leo guy is much more likely to not be as consistent in your relationship. For example, are you going out on dates enough? Are you telling him you adore him? Are there gifts? Time together? 

If there’s too much stress, he can simply pull away and switch off. So, try to create that sense of romance so that he can feel adored, and come closer towards you. When there’s more pleasure the more he stays committed and present with you. 

I’d like to find out from you – are you experiencing this hot and cold behavior with a Leo guy? Are you wondering what’s going on? Perhaps you would like to share some tips and advice to share us! I always love hearing from you – and learning from you!

  1. I’ve been reading a lot of posts on this site and this is really true. Points 1 and 2 fit well. He is a widower and lost his wife just over a year and a half ago in a tragedy. I feel like we’re getting closer, and I want to show him that I’m there but without being too invasive. However he’s a public person and I’m not, but I feel like we have a lot of rapport, weird synchronicities happen. Sorry if I stretched too far, I love your work Anna

    1. Hi Mary!

      Thank you for sharing your experience! I think that you’re already handling things the right way and need to keep going with the flow. Spontaneity can be fun too! He’s still hurting and it will take him time to heal for sure. Take your time. There is no need to hurry. You guys have good chemistry and that counts for something. Take it as it comes and you just may have found your match! I wish you all the luck of the universe!

      1. Thank you for your time, it brought me peace. But as I told you the only problem is the fact that he is a public person and I am not, he knows a lot of people that makes me confused sometimes. I’ll keep trying and if everything works out I’ll come back here my friend… Gratitude

  2. My leo man and I broke up but he tells me one we are friends next day we are comman law and he is hot and cold iam trying to understand and I am a Gemini woman

    1. Hi Shelly Geislinger!

      Good grief he sounds like he’s giving you whiplash with all this back and forth. I think you should tell him that you don’t understand what he’s doing. Tell him to make a decision and stick with it. You do your best to stay stable so that he sees he has to do this himself. If you need more assistance, check out my guides on “Leo Man Secrets”. I wish you all the very best!

  3. Dear Anna, my husband is a Leo. I am a Capricorn. We had a lot of problems because he was too close with his friend (a woman). He still is. He does a lot of good things for her. We are still married but our physical part is gone. He told me he would like to feel attraction towards me but every time he sees me, he remebers our problems. He would like to feel I am “the one” again. He acts sad and worried, distant. He spends a lot of free time with me and our son, but he rarely goes aout with me alone. If I invite him to join me, sometimes he will, but he never does it first. He does things in a way he wants without showing an interest how do I feel about it. Sometimes he does really nice things for me, he buys me things I like. Small things. He told me he sees great changes in my behaviour, good ones, but he still does not “feel ut”. What is the future of our marriage?

    1. Hi Quince!

      Oh my gosh sweetheart. This guy is out of his mind. He’s using you as the excuse for his behavior. He’s making it your fault. That’s not a good thing. It takes two and his behavior is on him. Whatever your problems are… you either work through them together or he can just keep blaming you for the failure of the relationship. He’s all about himself is the bottom line here sweetheart. You deserve better and if he’s telling you he’s not into you while you’re married… You can try being “too busy” for him. Leo men miss when their woman isn’t paying them any attention. Act like all is well and you’re not worried. Spend lots of time out and about. Let him sweat it out. If he does still love you, he’ll make effort. If he doesn’t then you’ll have to consider letting him go. I wish you all the best sweetheart!

  4. Hi Anna – Yep – I can relate to 1 and 2. Yep – Too close to another woman. What I don’t like is that he’s was so sweet etc. Then boom he started to constantly mention my mistakes. Yes I was aware of the things I had forgotten but I don’t want to hear it constantly. Then he was intentionally instigating arguments. Saying I didn’t pray enough ? Yep – They make an excuse and make it your fault. I had to frequently apologize for things I never done just to keep the peace. He says I love you care about you want to marry you. Then he says I appreciate and respect you. But the truth is in the beginning he constantly talked about sex. Truth of the matter is I wanted to be friends first. Truth of the matter is I wanted more than sex or a fling. This man tells me I’m all talk when I feel he’s all talk. I feel like there’s such an awful double standard. Then one day he said that he was going to LA to spend time with another woman. Then he says contact her and ask her what docs we need ? I’m busy too but I’m not contacting another woman. What I don’t like is being blamed for his actions. He wants me to say sorry but he won’t. He says I’m an equal but then I feel like I’m not. It’s all so confusing.
