Written by   (author of Obvious Conclusions)

In this article, we discuss what is the best match for Leo.  Leo’s have some strong characteristics and attracting a Leo is no small feet.  Find out what is the best match for a Leo right now.

Ah, if you landed on this page wondering “what is the best match for a Leo?”, you are in luck my friends because I am a LEO.

I say that with pride and apparently that is one of the characteristics of a Leo.

To know what is the best match for Leo, we have to get down to the actual characteristics of a Leo.  This is tough; it’s like a self evaluation, but I bring you things honestly my friends.

To know me, you need to know my situation.  I am single and am always dating beautiful women usually younger than me.  I have owned a lot of businesses and enjoy the work that I do.  Laughter is extremely important to me as are ideas about life.  I like to be moving, traveling, and experiencing all facets of life.  I like to feel comfortable, but I also like to be in motion.  When relationships get to close, I often feel stifled.  People sometimes might say I have commitment issues, which may be true.  When girls starts talking too much about marriage, I often want to run for the hills.

This is all just coming from the top of my head, folks.  So, I will look at the so-called traits of a Leo and see if I match.  There is a good chance of this because everyone tells me that I am a “typical Leo”.

Ok, so let’s take a look at some of the so-called traits about a Leo.  As I look at them, I think, “How can someone just stereotype me this way?” which is probably a very Leo response ;)

So, in continuing on with what is the best match for a Leo and attracting a Leo, I will take a look at this page and compare the reality with what is written.

Traitis of a Leo

We will first take a look at the strengths of a Leo and then the weaknesses.

The Strengths of a Leo

The following are listed as strengths of a Leo with my personal reaction (of me) after:

-Confident:  VERY TRUE.
Ambitious:  VERY TRUE, but not financially necessarily
Generous:  Generous in spirit and very caring but I often forget to give birthday gifts and the ages of my nieces and nephews.
Loyal:  Always loyal to the closest people in my life but this does not mean that I am always in agreement.  I usually tell people when I am in disagreement even it will test our loyalties.
Encouraging:  VERY TRUE.  I absolutely love to see others do well (unless they gloat about it) and see someone smile or achieve something that makes them feel good makes me feel great.

The (Purported) Weaknesses of a Leo

Here are the listed weaknesses–we have those?–of a Leo and my reaction:

-Pretentious: I don’t agree with this.  I actually despise pretension.  I think I can honestly say that nobody would call me pretentious.  Maybe I am more an “out of main stream” Leo in this regard.
Domineering:  If that means we know what we want to do and try to guide other that way, absolutely.
Melodramatic:  Probably so.  I am more the silent-aggressive type when my mood is not right so my melodrama comes with silence, but it probably exists.
Stubborn:  True.  I pursue what I like often without regard to outside influences.
Vain:  Why Not?

Attracting a Leo:  What I Say

You are getting a first hand account here without a filter folks.  The true Leo account.

So, how do you go about attracting a Leo?

I would break this down into two very important categories:  Attracting A Leo for the Short Term, and Attracting a Leo for the Long Term.

Again, this is a first hand Leo account of me.  It may or may not apply to all Leos.

You will read that Leos like to be flattered and this is true.  I am very susceptible to flattery.  Attracting a Leo for the first time is not that difficult especially because we see beauty and novelty in everything.  I love all parts of a women.  From her ankles to her legs, and on up, there is so much beauty in a woman.  I will let her know it too.  As she flatters me, I do likewise maybe even more.  It’s genuine, but the problem is that it wears off because new novelties abound around every corner.  There are other ankles and legs to explore.  Thus, attracting a Leo is easy, keeping him is not.

Why is hard to keep a Leo for the long haul?

Well, you have to keep up the novelty.  In the end, I want a beautiful, intelligent women–who doesn’t?-who keeps fresh ideas coming in all of the time.  I get bored with women who do not offer a new, intelligent perspective on things.  There are always beautiful women, but there is infrequently beautiful, savvy, witty, intelligent women who you want to be with for a lifetime.

Thus, it’s hard to keep a Leo man.  He loves his options and marriage removes options.

I am not saying that it is impossible to keep a Leo man but it is not easy.

For instance, if a women does not fit one of the categories that I like, she will probably not last.  And one of those categories is self-pity.  I will not suffer self-pity in a woman easily and, if it comes in any kind of abundance, the relationship is doomed.  If she lets herself go physically, I will not like it.  If she cannot entertain herself and requires too much of my time, it won’t work.  You get the idea?  Maybe she has to be a lot like me.

What Is The Best Match For Leo

With all that said, then, what is the best match for a Leo?  Is it another Leo?

Since I have dated a lot, without looking at any references, off the top of my head, I would say that Leos–me that is–are most compatible with Libras.

I have dated many Libra women and they seem to have that right combination of beauty and adoration that is combined with a femininity and independence that I require.

Let’s see what the experts have to say about what zodiac signs are compatible with Leo.

This page is very good in describing a Leo…it kind of matches what I was saying.  It mentions that a Leo-Leo relationship does not work very well because the strength of two Leos would not work too well.  Each one would want their own way and things might not end well. It also adds that Libras and Leo don’t go well in the long haul. So who does? What is the best match for Leo?

Ok, I have just come back from doing research on several pages of  what zodiac signs are compatible with Leo and, frankly, I found it a bunch of hog wash.  Talk of the general characteristics was not specific enough for me.

But in summary, as to the question of  “what is the best match for Leo?”, the general consensus appears to be the following sign:   Aries.

And if you want a great, fiery life, the Taurus goes well with the Leo.

What Is The Best Match For Leo:  Summary

Well, since you asked, I have tried to give an accurate depiction of what is the best match for Leo by providing my first hand account.

As I said, attracting a Leo in the short term is easy.  Leo’s love the novelty of it.

Attracting a Leo for life will be much more challenging.  Leo’s always want excitement, novelty, intelligence, beauty, and devotion.  However, they do like loyalty and are not adverse to marriage with the right person.

Staying together though is a challenge not unique just to Leo.  Everybody faces it.

Like the great writer Tom Robbins once said:

“The challenge of life is not to love, but to make love stay.”

    I am a Leo and you did very well at summing us up. I am easily attracted to someone who adores me, however, they cannot be stronger than me, they cannot dole with my emotions as I am very intuitive even telepathic if you will. They absolutely have to be OK for long periods of time without me, as I like my own time as much as there’s. You have to have a diversified sex life. If you kiss me in the morning before brushing your teeth you are doomed and out, if you turn the light on while I am sleeping you gotta go now, if you don’t like my cooking probably best to shut up or go home to your mom. If you lie, cheat or make me out to me less attractive well see you. And for God sake I can not stand a man that is wimpy and lost.
