Loving an Immature Leo

Leos can bring endless amounts of fun and romance into a relationship. They can also be passionately generous with their hearts, time, energy and money. But what if your Leo isn’t resembling any of this sign’s typical positive traits? What if your Leo likes to play mind games, is stingy (or worse, hot and cold) with his or her affections, dishonest or disloyal? If this is the case, then you’re in love with an immature Leo.

An immature Leo is one of the hardest signs to deal with in love, because when things are good, they’re soooo good that it almost makes it worthwhile to put up with the more difficult aspects of the immature Leo’s personality. They are usually very charming, which they can use to persuade you to see the pros of giving them their way all the time. However, this is the exact opposite of what will help them grow up and learn how to consider others in love. Like their astrological representation, the Lion, they believe themselves to be the Kings (or Queens) of the Jungle. When you cater to this belief, the immature Leo will take advantage and get stuck in the “Gimme, ’cause I deserve it” mode. They will take everything you have to offer and still want more. Nothing you do will ever be enough to convince them you are the love of their lives. The more insecure a Leo is, the more arrogant and inconsiderate he or she will act.

Ironically, the only thing this kind of Leo will respect (or respond to) is someone who has the courage to walk away. They may initially view your walking away as a sign that you don’t love them enough, but eventually they will come to respect you for not taking anymore of the crap they know they’ve been dishing out to you. (Because they’re very aware of how to leave a good impression, Leos know when they’re mistreating someone. Sidenote: RUN, don’t walk, if your Leo doesn’t care at all that he or she is disappointing you.)

As Leo’s partner, you might have come to expect that Leo won’t be able to survive without the daily doses of Vitamin A (affection), Vitamin C (compliments), Vitamin D (devotion) and Vitamin E (excitement) they’ve come to depend on from you. However, even immature Leos are very self-sufficient when left to their own devices. Either they will find someone else who will enable their “me, me, me” attitude or they will learn how to depend on themselves to get what they want. Doing the latter will help them gain the confidence that will bring out the generosity, loyalty, and lovableness that mature Leos already possess. While it will always be important to Leos that others admire them, a sign of Leo’s growing maturity is that they can recognize their own sunshine regardless of whether there’s a moon (i.e. you) around to provide a reflection.

When you’re feeling the urge to shower your immature Leo with more love, just remember that cats always land on their feet. And if they don’t, they have 8 more lifetimes to learn how…

What kind of Leo are you? How have you dealt with an immature Leo? Have you seen an immature Leo become mature?

That Pompous FOOL still gave me her a** to kiss!!! LEAVE THEM ALONE!!! THEY ARE IMPOSSIBLE!!! They will destroy you if they think they are right!!!! They always act like the victim!!!! I’m the caregiver for my 90 year old Leo mother & she still cracks her whip,& has no consideration for me needing time to socialize and have a life, I’m 33 not 93!!!!!!! & I cater to her like she is a queen!!!! However GuESS what!!!??? She thinks no more of it than , a man in the Moon!!!!! I promised myself when my mom is gone , No MoRE LEos!!!!! They are tOXiC!!!! Take it from me!!! head for the hills!!!!!

Hope everybody listens to what I’m saying!!!! I’m very much against people being hurt or violence, so if you have a bad temper ReALLY stay clear of Leos!!!! Even thoug I can’t stand them I would hate to see one get hurt, cuz a Leo will try even Jesus Christ patience!!!!!

  2. Hi Domici

    Is this your Mother or Grandmother because the age difference is staggering
    and it doesn’t make sense if she was your birth Mother.???

    Very puzzled Taurus.

  3. Astrochick says:

    Leos are ruled by the sun
    They think the world revolves around them
    They talk too much listen too little
    Are very bossy, like to control every situation,
    Way too much pride…
    Plays the victim feeling sorry for himself as if they are the only ones that feel pain in the world.. Makes bad decisions than blames it on bad luck
    Lost in his own ego and mind!

  4. Well where do I begin? They entice you leer you in and then go from hot to cold.. Their problems are bigger than yours.. So they think .. They will adore you with loving words act kind but expect more of it from you and always feeding their ego.. Exhausting I’m telling you .. Leo men different from Leo women .. Hands down .. Big babies the men doesn’t matter how successful they are… Good side to them is aware of your emotions ~ kind words~ some gifts and letters of love .. Downside … Give me more attitude … I’m king … What I say is right.. Pompous … Lol.. Depends on if you can handle constant admiration of them.. Oh too much work lol =^\^=

  5. Astro chick is right!

  6. Btw I’m a Libra… Around 3 Leos frequently .. Sister is different .. The other two lions … Oh pow!!! Lots of drama ????????????????????

  7. I’m Aquarius, the man I loved was Leo. He was great fun, gregarious, generous, smart….but he was very distant. It was like are roles were reversed. I’m trying to give love and affection, and he was pushing me away. He could also be very insensitive to my feelings, and cruel. I finally walked away, even though it broke my heart. I never heard from him again…that stubborn Leo pride, coming into play. He doesn’t realize he’s dealing with an Aquarian who is as stubborn as he is. I’m not taking any more crap. Grow up!

  8. This post helped me so much!!!! How I trying to hand my immature leo boy is break free been trying for months but have reached my final straw now he has a gay “homie ” girl her pictures flooded through his phone she has the password to his phone and I’m the so called girlfriend that has nothing and I have none of that no pictures of me in his phone I don’t have the password to the phone. the whole relationship was a piece of crap. I just been getting used for my money and my time wasted and I’m done I’m through closing doors trying to change my number today and just no contact whatsoever I’m tired of being hurt. Then Leo’s tend to always make it seem like they’re the victim ihe didn’t do anything wrong sorry to say but they are worst sign I’ve ever encountered. He just messed up big time and no turning back by the way I’m a Capricorn! With a Leo daughter hopefully I can break her out of their characteristics
