As a larger-than-life Leo who loves the drama of dressing up and going out, you need an equally fiery partner -- like Aries or Sagittarius -- who can match your pace and lavish you with the attention you crave. Watch out for deep Water signs who will douse your high-energy flame.

JUMP TO A SIGN:
Leo and Aries
Leos are ruled by the Sun, making you brilliant, creative, generous, and open-hearted. You live to love and be loved. When you hook up with an Aries, who is also a Fire sign, the romance is red-hot. You both have a childlike wonder about the world around you and an unmatched enthusiasm when you fall in love with someone. You’ll have a great time stirring up all kinds of activities and enjoyment. Remember that Ram playmates grow bored of almost any game quickly, and you’ll need to have a few tricks stashed up your sleeve to keep your partner interested!
Leo and Taurus
Bulls are sensual creatures who seek simple pleasures. Lions need to receive plenty of love and attention to feel secure in a relationship. You’re both loyal in love, but because you’re both Fixed signs, you can be stubborn and difficult. Each of you understands the concept of taking -- it’s giving that you both aren’t always so great at. If you can get past your own needs and accept each other’s unique way of expressing love, this can be an exciting match with long-term potential, and one that will teach you both how to give freely of yourselves.
Leo and Gemini
Geminis love all aspects of communication, and you’ll be immediately mesmerized by their wit and charm. When a Leo and a Gemini hook up, the attraction is powerful and magnetic, heightening your mutual curiosity not only about each other, but about the world around you as well. You make great playmates in life and work -- creative sparks fly between you just as often and easily as physical ones. Just make sure you play nice. You may not have the gift of words that your Gemini love does, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t just as capable of putting on a show.
Leo and Cancer
Lions and Crabs are like night and day when it comes to relationships. You’re bright and sunny, while Cancer is moody, introverted, and sensitive. You can easily outshine your Crab. You’ll never want for love or affection in this relationship, which is the most important thing to a Leo. Your Cancer doesn’t need as much attention and affection, but what a Crab does need is to feel secure. Before getting involved with a Cancer, you’ll need to ask yourself if you’re capable of providing the reassurance necessary to make this partner feel safe with you.
Leo and Leo
When two Lions hook up, there might be some competition. While you both want to be the alpha cat at all times, you’ll each have to step back from time to time and let the other lead. The secret to your success is to not take yourselves so seriously -- laugh at your quirks, break the rules, and compliment each other, often. You’re two creative souls who don’t just suspect you’re special, you know it. Your weaknesses are arrogance and pride. If you learn how to quiet your partner’s roar and make them purr instead, you might just be able to make it work.
Leo and Virgo
Virgos always want the upper hand in relationships. They are smart and efficient, and use their sharp intellect to take power whenever and wherever they can. If you’re a clever Lion, you’ll find plenty of ways to humor your Virgo, letting them believe they hold all the cards. Underneath their judgmental exterior, though, Virgos are witty and funny. They laugh at themselves easily, especially when someone calls their bluff. You may feel pressure from Virgo to be perfect, but you can calm their critical nature every time with a positive attitude.
Leo and Libra
You like an active, physically engaging partnership, Leo, while your Libran lover prefers to keep things light. You will have many things in common, though, including a love of theaters, museums, and the arts in general. While some people find your Leonine antics amusing, Libra may disapprove. And while some signs are intimidated by or fascinated with Libra’s quiet sophistication, you may find it stuffy and dull. More often, however, your differences will strike the delicate balance you need to form a long-lasting, happiness-filled relationship.
Leo and Scorpio
Scorpios prefer to play out their dramas in private, and might find the Lion’s loud roar childish and hard to understand. They need a lot of emotional space and clear boundaries, while you need over-the-top displays of love and affection. You might not get what you need with a Scorpio, who is more reserved with their love. It’s not hopeless, though. If you can learn not to express absolutely everything you feel, all the time, and your Scorpio can understand that you need attention and make an effort to be more demonstrative, you can make it work.
Leo and Sagittarius
When two explorers hook up, it makes for a relationship that’s never boring. You and Sagittarius both love social events, sports, and adventures of all types. Your Archer will open your eyes to the world around you, and you’ll never tire of hearing them speak passionately about saving the world. This is a relationship full of optimism, playfulness, and passion. It may not have long-term potential, though, because you both tend to live in the moment and aren’t terribly concerned with building a solid foundation for the future. But it will be fun while it lasts.
Leo and Capricorn
Capricorns are conservative and practical, and might be annoyed by your playful ways. While Goats want to get ahead, Lions just want to be admired. Your Capricorn can be condescending, and your relationship could end up with more of a parent-child dynamic than a romantic one. But if you can learn the virtues of hard work and responsibility -- and start taking responsibility for your own well-being -- your Goat will be able to see you as a valuable part of his or her life. They might just lighten up and start learning how to have a little more fun, too.
Leo and Aquarius
Aquarius and Leo are opposite signs of the zodiac. Opposites always attract, but they don’t always work out in the long run. You’re both Fixed signs as well, making you stubborn and unyielding. The problem is, you want to be appreciated without any criticism, ever. Aquarius would rather be right all the time than cater to your ego. You do find each other intriguing, though, and you’ll both be eager to give it a try. This relationship might not have forever written all over it, but it’s not impossible. All it takes is a little flexibility and a lot of perseverance.
Leo and Pisces
You tend to put yourself first, Leo, while Pisces rarely give themselves center stage. The Fish is compassionate and gentle, and may be baffled by your self-confident and larger-than-life ways. Pisces lives under the seas of their imagination, and through undercurrents of feelings and sensitivity. You aren’t comfortable showing your vulnerability, preferring to roar with pride instead. Pisces has enough humility for both of you. It won’t be easy, but if you can wade out into your Fish’s water, and your Pisces can venture onto dry land, it might just work.
