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?

  1. Hey Leo Man26….Were you answering my blog about knowing that my Leo loves me but
    why are they still looking around for attention from others????? I give my Leo sincere compliments
    every single day so I was wondering why my Leo still looks around???? I know my Leo loves me
    by the way they treat me, so that’s why this is very confusing to me???? Any Leo’s out there want
    to comment and help me out here??????? I would really appreciate your comments. Thanks

  2. Thank you very much to the Leo that took the time to respond to my question.

    I very much appreciate it and feel you gave me good advice. I will try what you
    suggested. I will blog again and let you know how it went. Have a great un-domesticated
    day (Ha Ha). But seriously, have a great day.

  3. Because Leo’s are selfish, entitled, etc. they have a never ending need to be praised and to have stuff given to them. They will take and take and NEVER give back. When you try to walk away, they will con you into believing they are good people…which they aren’t. Leo’s will not be faithful because it’s impossible for one person to fill the big gaping hole that is their selfishness.

  4. A Leo will never be able to stop using you. Especially a Pisces, we will give ourselves completely to someone and Leo’a believe they deserve it without anything given back.

  5. My Leo and me have a deep connection… an amazing love story. The problems come when I try to tell him my opinion about things that I don’t agree. He spends a lot of time ignoring me. I don’t know if it is to hurt me, or he is trying to gimme a kind of lesson or what… it happened many times since we started a relationship 1 year ago. And it confuses me because I don’t know if I should try to contact him, or if I should be upset or feel sorry for him… 🙁
    I’d appreciate you Leo guys gimme an advice. Thank you

  6. I’m a Pisces, and have been in love with an immature Leo for 9 years now. We recently broke up (I had enough) I treated him like a king. We have broken up over the years before but this time I AM DONE. He has now stolen our vehicle, and refuses to return it to me or pay for it. He’s currently spiraling downhill in many areas of his life, sadly he has turned to drugs, that is when I knew I could do no more. He’s personality is just like the one in this article. All I can do now is pray he finds his way back to God. I feel sad for him, but he tells me I play mind games, and live in a fake reality, so he doesn’t even respect what I have to say anymore. I’m just glad to know I’m not alone.

  7. This is a major breakthrough for you being a Pisces Sun. How did you find the strength to leave? Or is transiting Saturn squaring yr Sun right now?

  8. What is the “perfect woman” for a Leo man?

    Hi there,
    I’m an Aries woman and I have a relationship of sorts with an immature leo man. I’ve been in love with him since the first time we met. Instant connection, instant comfort, I instantly trusted him. I’m an Aries that never happens. It started out as a friendship and now we are FWB. I didn’t know there was such a thing. I’ve always gotten the excuses of why he doesn’t want a girlfriend, I’ve asked multiple times over the years. I finally just accepted my status because I wanted him in life anyway I could get him. The times we stopped speaking were awful, the longest was like 9 months when he decided he was ready for a girlfriend, it just wasn’t me and he forgot to mention it. I found out via facebook, of all places. I knew it wouldn’t last and sure as *hit she dumped his ass and he came back. I was going to completely write him off but I was hurt and I wanted to relish in his pain and tell him off. That backfired, I forgave him, just like always. Obviously we have a very rough history. He always comes back. I never completely cut ties with him. I did try a couple times and then the pattern emerged, he kept coming back. He called me both times he almost went to jail. I asked him why, he said because he knew that I would listen. I finally told him that I was in love with him, and that I have been, long before we moved from friends to FWB. I’m pretty sure that me admitting that is going to make him disappear again, is there a chance that he will come back this time? I had to start 2017 differently but now I’m panicking that I’ve really lost him forever. If that happens I wasted the last 5-6 years of my life on him. I dated other guys in that time but he is the one I feel I belong with.

    I’m a Leo woman dating an Aquarius male and I’m receiving the hot and cold treatment from him. He’s very stubborn as I am too (hint…immature Leo here), so I give the same treatment but then I miss him and call. This is the most difficult relationship I’ve ever encountered (1st interaction with Aquarius male). I’m not receiving enough praises from him LOL

  11. Yes Josh so true. They’re Overrated and one of the Worst Men that Ive ever known or dated.

  12. LMAO!!!!
    I just laughed like an insane reading your comment. I came here looking for a clear answer to the confusion created by my Leo crush. We work in the same office. He sits right beside me. Throughout the week he behaves as if he is so dependent on me & just before the weekend he talks about another girl which spoils my mood & I spend my weekend stalking him & her on Facebook. I’m an Aquarius girl with a straightforward heart. I tend to show people what I feel. So, I’ve done the same to him. I’ve shown him that I’ve fallen for him. And the moment he talks about another girl, my expression changes. He kind of enjoys it. This has been happening for the last few weeks & I’m tired now. I tried to switch job but then he weakened my resolution by saying emotional things. Day by day I’m getting trapped. He borrows money & things from me although he returns them on time but why? Why am I the only fool to support him with all his necessities? I told him to ask for help from “that” girl & then I encountered his anger. His eyes turned into a psycho’s eyes with fire bursting out from them. I calmed him down somehow & then again the story repeated itself. He knows I like him. What more he wants. Damn these people are so complicated. I agree with Domici, I shall rather lie under a bulldozer than date a leo again in my life. I’m really losing my peace of mind!
