Lions have the loudest roar of any big cat. And Leos are the exact same when making their presence known.

The Leo zodiac sign is known for its strength, loyalty, and powerful demeanor.

Leos have a strong passion for others and are dedicated... as long as you do the same for them. Whether it’s family, friends, or a lover, they will commit to the ones they love.

With all of these cool qualities, why wouldn’t you want to date a Leo?

Leos are ambitious and will only date a person if they support them in their career. If they have a dream and set their mind to it, there's no stopping them, and they will demand your support if you're dating them.

Of all the fire signs this one is the most dramatic and attention-seeking. They are natural-born leaders and don’t hesitate on taking over anything.

When you're with a Leo, life is anything but dull. They can easily light up a room when they walk into it. After all, they are ruled by the sun.

Leos have a contagious positivity that follows them everywhere. Although they adore being the center of attention, they don’t mind sharing the spotlight with the people they care for.

Leos love a good time and will make amazing things happen and give you incredible experiences.

What it's like dating a Leo

When dating a Leo, they strive to be the hottest couple, but they love individuality and will make sure they don’t lose themselves in any relationship. Leos are independent, and if you get in the way of their success, they won’t second-guess ending the relationship.

Leos let their heart take control, and they are big fans of love and being in love. They go for what they want and refuse to let anything stop them from getting it.
