The Most Toxic Relationship Traits Of A Leo

Leos are the feistiest, sassiest, and most dramatic of the zodiac signs. Born between July 23 to August 22, the fire sign embodies strength, power, and passion. They shine the brightest and make sure they look good doing it. As Allure defines the summer sign, "Leo is represented by the lion, and these spirited fire signs are the kings and queens of the celestial jungle. They're delighted to embrace their royal status: Vivacious, theatrical, and passionate, Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate themselves." They're a lot of things, some good and some not-so-good.


However, like every other zodiac sign, the fifth house — Leo — has a bit of a dark side as well. Not the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding type of bad side. We're talking about the toxic parts of them. You may, or may not, know the toxic traits to look out for in your relationship with them.

Leos crave attention more than any other zodiac sign

As Cosmopolitan UK notes, "There is no second fiddle for Leo, or any justifiable obstacle as to why they shouldn't have exactly what they want, when they want it." Basically, Leos can be impatient as heck, and when they don't get what they want, and soon, they get mad. Their symbol is a fiery lion, so what else would you expect?


While Leos are all about self-love, that can have a dark side to it. Leos crave attention and affirmation, and basically want everyone to see them as the god or goddess they see themselves as. Because of this, they can also be self-centered, meaning they just focus on themselves above everyone else 99% of the time. Like Demi Lovato, another fellow Leo, stated, "Sorry not sorry," and that's the Leo motto. They're unapologetic to a fault, sadly. According to Our Mindful Life, "If you try to confront Leo for their wrongdoings, you might instead get rage in return." So basically, tread lightly or the lion within them may pop out.
