Leo men are warm, loving, and generous, which makes them a wonderful partner. But they can tend to have a “the grass is greener” outlook when it comes to relationships.
If they are starting to consider whether this relationship is the right one for them, you will notice them closing off their generosity. He will be less romantic and less likely to want to share his success with you.
You may also find that he becomes critical, as he is actively comparing you with other options in his head. But he won’t fight with you, he only argues with people that he trusts.
Read on for the five biggest signs that a Leo man is finished with you.
5 Signs a Leo Man is Finished With You
1. He Will Want More Space
Leo men are the independent sort, and they like to have the freedom to do their own thing without always having to worry about their partner.
They are incredibly loyal and are unlikely to betray a partner, but they don’t want to be worried about running everything past their partner, or always having to bring them along for the ride.
If they start to lose interest in you, they will feel even less inclined to let you know where they are or invite you along to things that they might have included you in in the past.
The best thing that you can do is give them the space that they need. Any clingy behavior is only likely to make the problem worse.
At the same time, make sure you are busy with your own stuff, so he is the one left wondering what exactly you are up to. This can help re-fan the flame.
2. He Will Hog The Spotlight
You will have noticed that the Leo man in your life enjoys it when all the attention is on him, but can forget about the people around him.
But, when he cares about someone, he always remembers to share a little bit of his light with them. He’ll brag about your accomplishments or mention how you helped him.
If he starts to forget to do this, it is a sign that he is moving on. Where he was seeing you as something within his gravity, he may now see you as beyond it.
Don’t get mad, or complain that he has taken credit for something that you did.
Instead, be sure to give him astute compliments in front of other people. This will remind him that you are on his side.
3. He Won’t Fight With You
Leo men, like most men born under one of the fire signs, love a good fight. They don’t bottle things up, they let it all out.
When he is in a good place with someone in a relationship, he will probably fight with them quite a lot. This is because he knows that the two of you can hash it out and not hold it against one another later.
But if it starts to feel like he is walking on eggshells around you, and not picking you up on things that you know he hates, this is not a good sign.
This suggests that he thinks that there is something wrong in the relationship and that you won’t be able to take the argument.
When this happens, make sure that you keep your emotions in check around him. That way he will realize that you are stronger than he thinks.

4. He Will Cut Back On The Romance
Leo men are very passionate. They love the chase, and they love to treat the object of their affection. For this reason, you can expect romantic gestures from them regularly, no matter how long you are together.
If these suddenly stop, warning bells should ring in your head. This could mean that he is upset about something, or that his chase instinct is otherwise focused.
When this happens, it can be a good idea to take the initiative in rekindling the romance.
Plan a romantic weekend away and show him just how strong your passion for them still is.
While it might seem superficial, boosting your desirability level can also help if they have a wandering eye.
Taking a little bit of extra care with your appearance and keeping your social calendar full will remind him why he fell for you in the first place.

5. He Might Compare You Negatively To Others
When a Leo man is in love, he will tend to think that his partner can do little wrong.
While they might offer the occasional bit of constructive criticism, they are rarely critical.
If that starts to change, you might have a problem. You are right to be worried if he starts to point out promotions that you didn’t get, or ask why you can’t take better care of yourself like so and so.
When he starts talking in this way, it is a sign that he is starting to consider whether he has made the right choice with you, and what his other options may be.
Whatever you do, don’t let this bruise your confidence. Leo men want a confident and ambitious partner.
If you break down in the face of his criticism, he will lose respect for you. If you take it on the chin and continue to confidently work on yourself, he will be impressed.
