You know those times when you’re just not sure if the guy you like likes you back?
Most of us have been there.
Are you looking for signs a Leo man likes you through texting? Keep reading to find out!
1) He compliments you via text
At the very simplest level, if you’ve been in touch with a Leo man via texting and he’s been pretty complimentary about you, this could be a sign he likes you.
However, if you’ve been texting regularly with a Leo man whose compliments are pretty general (for example, he tells you how great you are, but he doesn’t talk about any specific qualities he really admires or values in you), this may just be a friend-like level of appreciation for you – not a romantic one.
If he compliments you in a genuine, specific, and heartfelt way, this could be a sign he likes you.
For example, if he tells you how much he likes your smile and then talks about why he appreciates it, that’s a great sign he may be more into you than just a platonic friend.
Now: the thing is, Leos are not always super romantic in the way they text, even when they are into you, so I wouldn’t take this sign as the only one you base your conclusion on.
You see, even if a Leo is head over heels in love with you, they might hold back via text (which is surprising, given their extroverted nature).
This is because, for a Leo, it’s about the quality and not the quantity of their relationship with you.
To sum up: if he compliments you in a genuine way (not just “you’re great!”), this could be a sign he likes you.
If he compliments you in a specific way (for example, “I like your smile because it shows how much you appreciate life and makes me want to be near you more often”), this is an even better sign that he is into you.
2) He responds to your texts quickly
If a Leo man is texting you and then usually answers pretty quickly, this can be a sign he likes you.
If he texts you and then takes a long time to respond, that may mean that he’s not as interested in texting you as often as you’d like.
However, keep in mind that if you’re texting with a Leo man who’s working a lot or who otherwise has a pretty busy schedule, he may not be able to respond to you quickly all the time.
So, if he’s been quick with his responses to your texts but then starts to take longer to respond, that may be a sign that he’s less interested in the conversation than he was before, but not necessarily.
You see, I feel like we often interpret a lot into little texting changes of people.
Sometimes, life just happens and we don’t get a chance to get back to someone’s text right away, even when we really like them!
So, don’t freak out if he takes a bit longer to respond to you.
Just keep in mind that if you’re texting with a Leo and he usually responds pretty quickly, that’s a great sign that he is interested.
You see, Leos tend to jump from one thing to the next relatively quickly, and it can be hard to hold their attention for a long period of time.
Now: if you can do that with a Leo and he is into you, that’s a good sign!
3) You bring out his inner hero
It might sound strange, but bringing out a Leo man’s inner hero could be a huge sign that he is into you. Let me explain:
There’s actually a psychological term for what I’m talking about here. It’s called the ‘hero instinct’.
This concept is generating a lot of buzz at the moment as a way to explain what really drives men in relationships.
I know it might all seem kind of silly. In this day and age, women don’t need someone to rescue them. They don’t need a ‘hero’ in their lives.
But this misses the point about what the hero instinct is all about.
The hero instinct is an instinctive need that men have to step up to the plate for the woman in their lives. This is deeply rooted in male biology.
When a man genuinely feels like your everyday hero, he’ll become more loving, attentive, and committed to being in a long-term relationship with you.
But how do you trigger this instinct in him?
The trick is to make him feel like a hero in an authentic way. And there are things you can say and messages you can send to trigger this natural biological instinct.

I don’t often recommend videos or buy into popular new concepts in psychology, but the hero instinct is one of the most fascinating concepts I’ve come across.
4) He shares personal information with you
If a Leo man shares personal details with you, like a secret from his past or something related to his family, that can be a sign he likes you.
On the other hand, if he only talks to you out of politeness or if he only shares the most surface details about his life with you, this may not be a sign that he likes you.
For example, if he tells you about a secret from his past that he’s never told anyone, that could mean he likes you.
But he may also just be sharing that secret with you because he feels like he can trust you or he wants you to understand him better.
If you’ve been sharing personal details with a Leo man, that can be a sign that he likes you. But if you’re only sharing surface details with him, he may only be interested in being a friend.
You see, Leo men want a woman they can trust with their life, so he might be testing the waters by telling you little secrets.
Now: if he hasn’t told you anything of substance yet, don’t worry too much!
Sometimes, it just takes a bit of time for a Leo man to open up to someone else! This depends on how long you’ve known him and also how much he trusts other people, in general!
So, if you want to know if a Leo man likes you, pay attention to the things he says.
If he tells you a secret that he’s never told anyone else or if he is generally more open with you than with other people, this could be a sign that he likes you.
5) He has a habit of sending cute stickers and gifs in his texts
If a Leo man is texting you regularly and he often sends you cute stickers and gifs, this may be a sign that he likes you.
Cute gestures like sending a sticker or gif that has some special meaning to you can be an indicator that he likes you.
You see, if he regularly sends you cute stickers and gifs, that’s a pretty sure sign that he likes you – and that he’s trying to show you that he does.
If you like him back and want to be sure he knows, you may just have to let him know.
It’s entirely possible that he’s not sure if you like him back, so you may want to be clear about your feelings for him.
Most Leos are extroverted, that’s true, but sometimes, they can also be a bit shy!
This is why it’s important to not hide your feelings for a Leo completely, give them an idea of how you feel about them!
6) The last thing he texts before going to bed is something sweet for you
If the last thing he texts you before going to bed is something sweet and loving, it may be a sign that he likes you.
For example, if he texts you before bed and says something like “I’m going to bed, but I hope you have a wonderful dream,” that could mean that he likes you.
You see, these sweet little messages before bed or right after waking up are usually what people in a relationship like to do.
Now: if he is sending you these things, that’s a pretty huge indicator that he is into you!
He wants to impress you and he wants to be on your mind the same way you are on his.
Think about it: if you are the last thing he thinks about before going to sleep, he is most probably already in love with you!
These are just a few little details that can say a lot about what a Leo man is thinking!
This relates back to what I mentioned earlier: the hero instinct.
When a man is made to feel needed, wanted, and respected, he’s more likely to fall in love with you.
And it’s as simple as knowing the right things to say to trigger his hero instinct and make him into the man he’s always wanted to be.
All of that and more is revealed in this excellent free video by James Bauer. It’s absolutely worth checking out if you’re ready to take things to the next level with your man.
7) He asks questions and keeps the conversation going
If a Leo man is texting you and he asks you questions about your life, your interests, and your plans, that can be a sign that he likes you.
If he’s asking you questions and he’s also answering questions about his life, likes, and dislikes, he may be interested in getting to know you better.
Now, the thing is, when a Leo is not interested in you, he won’t really keep the conversation going.
Leos usually have enough people in their lives to not waste their time on small talk with someone they don’t like.
So, when he asks you questions and keeps the conversation going, that could mean that he’s interested in you.
It can also be a sign that he likes you a lot!
8) He constantly wants to meet up with you
If a Leo man is actively trying to arrange a date or plans with you, that can be a sign that he likes you.
Think about it: why would someone you’re texting want to meet up with you unless they are interested in you?
This really just comes down to logic!
Trust me, a Leo man who wants to take you out on a date really likes you!
This could be an official date as in dinner and a movie, but it could also just be him trying to see you in person any way he can, even if it’s just for an ice cream or something!
9) He makes you laugh, even through texts
If a Leo man is texting with you and he frequently makes you laugh, that can be a sign that he likes you.
You see, Leo men like to use humor as their way to show their feelings and make you fall in love with them!
For example, if he texts you and you laugh because he’s made you think of something funny, that could be a sign that he likes you.
Now: when a man can make you laugh even through a text, that’s already a pretty good sign in my opinion.
It shows that you share the same humor, which is a pretty big deal in a relationship.
If you can’t find anything funny about your partner, it’s probably not going to work out in the long run.
10) He compliments you and makes you feel good about yourself
If a Leo man is texting with you and he is constantly complimenting you, that can be a sign that he likes you.
Leo men are really good at making compliments feel genuine.
They will make sure to tell you that you look cute, that you are beautiful, or that you are smart and talented.
When he does this, even though it may seem like he’s just being nice to you, it’s actually a sign that he likes you.
Think about it: why would someone compliment you if they were not interested in getting to know you better?
That’s why the compliments can be your clue!
11) He tells you outright that he likes you
If a Leo man has been flirting with you but very subtly and then suddenly he comes right out and tells you that he likes you, it couldn’t really be any more obvious.
You see, Leo men are usually pretty straightforward.
While you may notice these signs, once a Leo man realizes that he’s into you, it’s very likely that he will just come right out and tell you that.
Leos are confident and they know how to get what they want.
If a Leo man has been talking to you and flirting with you and then suddenly tells you that he likes you, it is likely that he really does like you.
Now: if he doesn’t come right out and tell you that, then it’s probably not a bad sign, either, he might just either not be sure or is a bit scared.
12) He is always trying to impress you
If a Leo man is always trying to impress you, it could be a sign that he likes you.
I mean, if he’s going out of his way to make sure that you like him, he is probably interested in getting to know you better.
But! It can also be a sign that he really likes you!
Think about it: why would someone go out of their way to impress someone they don’t like?
This just makes sense!
So, if he’s trying to impress you with his charm and good looks and all sorts of other things, it might be because he likes you!
You will notice that he will send you a photo of himself, or he will mention how great his day at work went, little things like that.
Perhaps he will drop the hint that he has been working out a lot, or he wants to impress you otherwise.
This is one of the most classic ways men try to win over a woman – they try their best to impress her!
13) He wants to know more about your day
If you’ve been texting a Leo man who wants to know more about your day, this can be a sign that he likes you.
If he just seems genuinely interested in hearing about your day out of genuine curiosity and wants to know how you are doing, it’s a pretty clear indicator that he’s interested in you romantically.
For example, if he’s asking you about your day and he cares about what happened in your life, he may be interested in you romantically.
You see, Leos usually don’t waste their time on small talk. If they text you and ask about your day, it’s because they really want to know.
The good news?
Someone who wants to genuinely know how your day is going and how you are feeling is usually already pretty into you!
Think about it: unless you really like someone, why would you want to find out about how they are doing?
If you’re not really interested in someone and you’re just making small talk, why would you ask someone about their day?
It’s because Leos don’t really do small talk.
Leos like to be direct and know what they are getting into when they are getting into something.
So, if he wants to know more about your day, it may mean that he is genuinely interested in getting to know you better.
Does he like you?
Now you have lots of signs to look out for whether or not this Leo man is into you!
While you might not see all of them at once, a few are already indications enough that this man likes you as more than just a friend.
By now you should have a good idea of whether this Leo man likes you or not.
So what can you do to make him like you for sure?
Well, I mentioned the unique concept of the hero instinct earlier. It’s revolutionized the way I understand how men work in relationships.
You see, when you trigger a man’s hero instinct, all those emotional walls come down. He feels better in himself and he’ll naturally begin to associate those good feelings with you.
And it’s all down to knowing how to trigger these innate drivers that motivate men to love, commit, and protect.
So if you’re ready to take your relationship to that level, be sure to check out James Bauer’s incredible advice.
