And what we're really like!

Leos are one of the most well known and loved signs of all of the zodiacs. We are feisty, driven and often misunderstood.

You see, a Leo lady is fiery and while she seems like she can take over the world, sometimes, she is just as vulnerable as everyone else.

The horoscope world is abound with stereotypes and Leo girls suffer from many that are untrue too.

If you think you know a Leo, think again. Here are some totally untrue stereotypes about Leos and what we’re really like.

 

1. We loooooove to be the center of attention.

It’s commonly thought that Leos love to be the center of attention at all times but this is largely untrue. While Leo ladies do love to be paid attention to, they don’t like too many eyes on them.

Leos prefer to be given attention by the person they are with and trying to connect to instead of a whole room of strangers.

 

2. We want to be treated like the queens we are.

A Leo doesn’t want to necessarily be treated like a queen just because she said so. She knows that she IS a queen and expects to be respected like one.

Don’t misunderstand this desire to be respected either; a Leo is no diva, she just commands the same respect that she gives to others.

 

3. We love us some good ole' DRAMA.

Being dramatic and being passionate are two VERY different things.

A Leo lady won’t often be caught talking about people behind their backs. Instead, she talks about her opinions quite passionately, sometimes offending people but never meaning to.

4. We are total control freaks.

We have NO problem letting other people take control of situations if they seem like they know what they are doing.

Leos love solving problems and figuring things out, so they often take control if no one else steps up. However, they are always willing to listen to what others have to say and let them take control if they really want to.

 

5. We are COLD AS ICE.

OK, we can seem really cold and unemotional on the surface but don’t let that fool you. Leos don’t wear their emotions on their sleeves but they do care about the feelings of their friends, family and even strangers.

While a Leo may not show you much sympathy when you have a cold, she will totally be there for you if you call her in the middle of the night to save you from a bad situation.

 

6. We are super picky.

Leos aren’t picky just for the sake of being difficult. We just tend to know what we like and what we want and don’t want to settle for less.

So, even though we would rather have coffee made with fresh ground beans instead of the store bought powder, it doesn’t mean that we are picky about everything in life.

 

7. We're selfish.

A Leo girl is very driven and focused on reaching her goals. While it may seem that she is always doing things that serve her best interests, she is really just striving to be her best self and live her dreams.

When it comes to sharing, doing favors for friends and helping out strangers, Leos are very generous.

8. We are social butterflies.

Just because people tend to be drawn to Leos, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are great socially. In fact, a Leo girl can be very shy, introverted and to herself most times, making it difficult for her to connect to people.

It can actually take a while to get to really know a Leo, but once you do, you will probably fall in love with her.

 

9. We are arrogant AF.

A Leo exudes confidence and this can be extremely intimidating for others. Fortunately, Leos are comfortable in their own skin, know what they want, have strong opinions and are happy with their own company.

Leos won’t often settle for doing things that they don’t believe are worth their time or energy and tend to stand by their opinions, often making them seem arrogant even when they don’t mean to be.

 

10. We have expensive taste.

Leos DO actually care about quality over quantity but it doesn’t apply to everything in life. A Leo doesn’t necessarily demand luxury cars, expensive hand bags and lavish jewelry. However, a Leo does have expensive taste when it comes to things that will enrich her life.

She wants to travel and see the world, taste fine wines and beers for their culture and experience art and music. She cares about experiences over things.
