If you're trying to get your Leo man back, you will need to understand where he is coming from. Leo is easily misunderstood, but when you get to know him, the Leo man is one of the most generous, fun-loving, creative, and affectionate signs in the zodiac. Having the love of a Leo man is like basking in the warm rays of the sun, just don't be surprised when he expects you to orbit around him. The Leo man will be most compatible with a woman who is more shy and reserved, and prefers letting her partner be the star of the show.

Let him have the spotlight

The Leo man will never be happy playing second fiddle. He will shower you with warmth and love, much like the sun does for the planets of our solar system, but he won't abide being ignored or out-shined. Leo is a born performer and any attempt to quell his show-off nature is only going to lead to conflict.

Feed his ego

Compliments will get you far with the Leo man, just be sure that they are genuine. Leo is an open and trusting sign. The Leo man wears his heart on his sleeve and being lied to can deeply wound him. As you start discussing the prospect of getting back together, tell your Leo man why you want him back. The Leo man is proud and egotistical. Flatter this side of him and you're sure to make him feel a bit more receptive of your attempts to win him back.

Learn to keep up!

Leo is fiery, ambitious, and filled with creativity. He will want to jump from one pursuit to the next. He is filled with passion and zeal for life and he will always be looking for new ways to express himself. Don't try to get in his way or change his direction. He will tire himself out eventually. Which leads us to our next tip...

Let him have his lazy days

The Leo man truly is a lion, and much like the big cat that symbolizes his sun sign, he will be frisky, curious, and hunting down new adventures one moment, and then lazily basking in a sunbeam the next. He will alternate between being a theatrical show-off and being a sleepy pompous feline. Don't try to get him to work on his lazy days. Leo might have a lot of energy and zest for life, but he also needs his downtime to recharge. If you want your relationship with this overblown and regal sun sign to work out, you're going to have to be comfortable with these ebbs and flows in his energy.

No matter how mad you are, never insult him or try to tear him down

The Leo man sees himself as a king. Leo is the sign of royalty and dignity. He's going to want a queen who gives him the respect and admiration that a king is due, especially in front of the rest of his court (and in Leo's world, everyone is a subject of his). When the two of you disagree behind closed doors, be direct and upfront, the ever expressive Leo man will appreciate this, but never resort to petty insults or try to hurt his ego. Whatever you do, never disagree in public. Any good queen knows that the royal couple must be a united front. The Leo man will not be able to tolerate a woman who nags or belittles him in public, or even in front of a small group of friends. Leo may be magnanimous, but his forgiving nature will not extend that far.

Let him take the lead

As the two of you start to rebuild your relationship, make sure that you aren't leading the effort. The Leo man wants to be in control of things. Leo is a natural born leader. Place the ball in his court, and let this majestic leader of the sun signs do what he does best. Let him shower you with gifts and attention. Be there to support him and show him how much you appreciate him. Leo's strong leadership tendencies can be off-putting to some. He can be seen as domineering, overbearing, and authoritative, but for those who appreciate Leo's characteristics, they would instead view him as passionate, exciting, honest, and take-charge. It is true that when Leo wants something, he will rarely give up until he gets it. The good news for you, is that if what he wants is to rekindle a spark with you, you'll surely never meet a man so determined and strong-willed. He will put in the hard work to woo you. The Leo man may expect you to make him to center of your universe, but that doesn't mean that he won't shower you with appreciation and affection. When Leo is in love, he is outspoken and direct in showing his feelings. You will never have to worry where you stand with him, because he will let you know. This is not a man that will leave you playing the guessing game, wondering how he really feels about you.

Don't rain on his parade

The Leo man is a dreamer. He can be so idealistic, that many might consider him to be naive and childlike. He often has a grandiose sense of self, but he also wants to put all of that confidence to good use and make a positive difference in the world. He may have all kinds of big plans to better the world. Maybe he wants to start a non-profit or maybe he wants to make documentaries to spread awareness of social issues.

If you're more of a realistic, you may be tempted to try and get him to be more pragmatic. Don't do this. Leo's optimism is one of his best qualities, and if anyone can make a real change in the world, surely the roaring regal king of the sun signs can. Admire him for his courageous pursuits, and support him in his vision. The Leo man's determination and confidence make success in any endeavor very likely, and when he finds that success, you'll be glad you gave him the space to dream.
