Leo men don’t necessarily lie all the time, but they do tend to exaggerate when telling stories. This is a typical sign that a Leo is wanting to be the center of attention! However, if Leo has the hots for a girl, he may be very honest and vulnerable around her. He may share things he’s never told anyone before.

He wants her to know his deepest, darkest secrets. This may be because he trusts her and wants her to know the “real” him. He’s being open and honest about things to see if she feels the same way. If you are into a Leo man, one of the ways you can show this is to listen intently when he talks about serious subjects, the times when he’s vulnerable.

A Leo is a big affectionate man. If you have caught the eye of one, you are sure to know that he will touch you any chance he gets. He may try to hold hands with you or give you a kiss on the cheek if you’re lucky! You’ll know he’s smitten if he does little things like that!

If you’ve stolen his heart, he will probably really flirt quite a bit with you. Leos can be flirty because they like attention. However, if a guy takes a special interest in you and takes the time to craft special text messages for you, you know he’s ready to make you his girlfriend or at least ask you out on a date. 

8. A Leo man may be vulnerable when he’s around you

As mentioned, Leos aren’t keen on being vulnerable. They love to talk about themselves and share things with their best girl, but they aren’t usually too vulnerable. That means exposure and the possibility of getting hurt. No one wants to risk that! However, a smitten Leo will let his guard down and do his best to impress you if he’s got a crush!

9. A Leo man will act super sweet with you

Leo men are very romantic and fun to be around, but they aren’t always the most attentive and sweet. So, you know that if this guy shows you how sweet he is, he’s got it bad for you!

10. A Leo man will be interested in what you have to say

Most Leo men love talking, especially if the topic of the conversation is themselves. They want to make everything all about them, so they tend to spend time with people who love them and anything they have to say. They might find people who are good listeners, people who gush over anything that comes out of their mouths. 

However, if a Leo man has the hots for you, there’s no doubt that he’s going to want to do everything in his power to learn more about you. He’ll want to find out your favorite things, your hobbies, your passions, your family, your stories, your history, your background, your career path, your education - anything he can learn about you!

Take this time to talk about yourself, but share only a little bit in each area of your life. Do this even if you are spending a lot of time with a Leo. You want to leave him begging for more later on. Keep him guessing; make him ask plenty of questions to probe information out of you! That will keep him smitten for a long period of time!

11. A Leo man will enjoy making you smile

Who doesn’t love to see someone smile? It’s a great feeling to cheer someone up or improve their mood by doing something special. If this man enjoys your smile, you know he’s got a crush on you. He may get some kind of pleasure in making you happy! After all, you are the object of his eye right now. He wants you to enjoy being around him!

So, how might he try to make you smile? He could say encouraging things to you, anything to make you happy. He might tell a happy story, something that you can’t resist. 

It may be a story where he is the hero, but come on! It’s a Leo we are talking about! They love being the hero of the story!! If he can make you happy, how can you resist him?

Another thing you can do if you know he’s got the hots for you and you are also interested in him is to ask him out! I know that may sound crazy and inappropriate, but you can do it.

Finally, if you are sure he’s really into you and you like him as well, you can make a move. Call him on the phone and get to talking about your passions or hobbies.
