Are you involved with a Leo man who normally seems to be very loving and warm but suddenly is giving you the silent treatment? Perhaps he’s just not being as cuddly and affectionate as he used to be. Here are some things to keep in mind if you’re wondering what to do when your Leo man is being distant.
Leo Men are Hot Heads
Leo men are very passionate and thus makes their anger flare up. They emotionally lash out and sometimes this makes them become silent, cold, or change their behavior toward you.
You’re going to need to look at what 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 relative to you.
The thing about Leo men is, 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 over complicated.
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 peg what to do about it.
If There Has Been Fighting
If you and your Leo man have been at odds for awhile then yes, this may cause him to sort of start being a bit cold and stealthy. He could start sneaking around and eliciting affection from someone else.
He may feel angry, hurt, or just unappreciated which will also make him unresponsive or cold toward you. This is when you’ll need to actually sit down and talk to him to find out the core of the issue.
Once you find out what it is, try to find some middle ground or solution that will keep you together, keep you working toward a goal and toward healing with one another.
Naturally if you were in the wrong, you’ll want to apologize and let him know that you don’t want to do that ever again. You need to dig deep and find the source of upset if it involves you.
If All Has Been Well
In the case that you and your Leo man have been proceeding with your relationship as normal and yet you don’t know why he’s acting the way he is, it’s time you ask him.
Leo men don’t like to talk about their problems sometimes. Though if you’re sure it’s not you, then ask him if he’d like to discuss whatever it is that is making him feel off.
He may ask you what you mean by that. At that point you can then point out how he’s been acting and that it’s causing you some concern. He should be able to tell you then and there what he feels and what is going on.
Even if it’s something he doesn’t want to discuss, he’ll at least tell you that he’s dealing with some things that he doesn’t want to talk about but he’ll recognize what you said to be true and will work harder not to ignore you.
The thing with Leo is, you need to be truthful with him. Waiting and wondering what is going on without telling him you’re worried will accomplish nothing. All you’re doing is hurting yourself.
Communication is What Works
This isn’t the popular answer ladies but 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 man 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 then 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.
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.
Doing this will cause him to feel even more stress and guilt. That may make him break up with you anyway. So if you just get the jump on it and get it out of the way then you’ll be able to find out what is going on.
In the case that 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.
Time and Space
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 is 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. It also gives him a little breathing room to think.
It shouldn’t take too long before he talks to you and tells you what is on his mind and what he plans to do about it.
