5 Reasons To NEVER Date A Leo Male, Regardless Of Your Sign

5 Reasons To NEVER Date A Leo Male, Regardless Of Your Sign

Leo the lion? More like Leo the lying, backstabbing, rude, idiotic...

I've been into astrology since I was in grade school (thanks to my mother) and the more I've studied it, the more I've become certain of its accuracy. People scoff and shake their heads, but I can say from personal experience that a person's zodiac sign can tell a lot about them. I've learned by interacting with Leo males that they might actually be the spawns of Satan.

Said every Leo, ever

1. They're arrogant

Technically they're described as "confident" and "sure of themselves," but I think "douchebag" is a little bit more accurate. Leo is represented by the lion, so it makes sense that they like to think of themselves as supreme beings, but they take being confident a little too far. They're unable to recognize any of their flaws and unwilling to think they ever do anything wrong. Good luck trying to ever give a Leo male constructive criticism— it won't get past his fat head.

2. They like to flirt... with everyone

Maybe it's due to their attention-whoring ways, or maybe they're just so charming they don't even realize they're doing it (I mean, I did get tricked into dating a Leo three times). You can bet your last dollar that in a room full of people, the Leo male will find someone to flirt with— whether they're in a relationship or not.

3. They're materialistic

To be fair, if you have the money to pamper yourself, then there's no harm in that. But with the Leo male, he places a serious amount of importance on the cost of his wardrobe, electronic devices, shoes, etc. If you were to find any Leo male right now, he's probably wearing something designer. While this may be an attractive trait to some, if you're turned off by those that are obsessed with their material possessions and other superficial things, you might want to look elsewhere.

4. They're selfish

They're conceited so they have a hard time not making every issue about them, while their need for more and more expensive objects makes it hard for them to spend a penny on anyone but themselves. Dating a Leo male will guarantee disappointing Christmas gifts and a "K" response to your long, emotionally-charged text messages.

5. They're stubborn

Being stubborn can be a good thing, but not if you're completely unable to take other people's advice. Leo males are very domineering and hate being told what to do, even if what they're being told will benefit them. Communication is key in a relationship and if your partner never wants to change their actions, habits, etc., well then...

OK, OK, so maybe I'm being a little biased in my description of the Leo male. Admittedly, all of the ones I've come into contact with have been dillholes. But my assessment is still largely backed by astrological wisdom: Leos are cocky, flirtatious, materialistic, slightly self-centered, and highly stubborn.

But they're also good-humored, affectionate, and really fun to be around. So, if you decide to torture yourself by entering into a relationship with the Lion, try to make sure he has more likable traits than douchebag ones.

The 5 Differences Between Physical and Emotional Cheating Every College Girl Should Know

Regardless of their differences, they're still equally awful.


Cheating can be a violation of another partner's physical and mental health when it occurs and is often a dealbreaker in a relationship. While cheating of any sort is often traumatic and upsetting for a partner, there exist a variety of ways in which their partner might cheat. Of the many ways in which infidelity can occur, the way a person cheats falls under the categories of physical or emotional cheating.

While overlap can occur between the two within a relationship, there exist a few differences between physical and emotional cheating that often differentiate the two.

1. Physical cheating requires  a physical relationship, whereas emotional cheating doesn't

This is the most self-explanatory difference between physical and emotional cheating. When someone physically cheats on their partner, that means they've decided to engage in sexual acts without the knowledge or consent of their partner. Emotional intimacy involves emotional contact without the partner's consent, such as intimate conversations, extensive flirting and doting behaviors practiced outside the context of the couple's relationship.

2. Physical cheating may not involve feelings or emotional intimacy, whereas emotional cheating does

Physical cheating can involve long-term sexual relations with one person or involve sporadic incidences with multiple people. The archetype of physical cheating is cheating without feelings attached, where people have sex without attachment. While attachment can occur within physical relationships, the assumption is that physical cheating is sex-based.

Emotional cheating, however, is based on forming a strong bond and romantic attachment to someone in a way that's meant to be reserved for their partner. For emotional cheating, the cheater is deliberately seeking validation and affection through non-sexual contact and communication with someone else.

3. Physical cheating involves in person contact, whereas emotional cheating can exist in person or digitally

Physical cheating involves a formed sexual relationship, which can only occur in person. Emotional cheating, however, can include both in-person contact or extensive online communication with a non-partner. For example, a partner could be emotionally cheating through the extensive use of a dating app, wherein said partner channels their affection and emotions into the digital person instead of their partner.

4. Physical cheating is secretive, whereas emotional cheating might not be

In monogamous, non-open relationships, it is expected that each person in the relationship is only sexually active with their partner. For a partner that chooses to cheat, it is imperative they keep their new, sexual partner (or partners) under wraps to prevent sabotaging their relationship. Emotional cheating, however, can manifest gradually without being under wraps.

For example, it's possible one's partner could become romantically and emotionally involved with a friend over time, where time spent with a said friend or acquaintance grows. The investment and growth of the new relationship could occur within social circles that allow one partner to witness the new relationship grow over time. This gradual growth could be masked as a new colleague, friend or contact.

If a partner who's cheating exploits their current partner's trust, they could disguise their new relationship until they decide to leave or break up with the current partner.

5. Physical cheating can cause bodily harm to your partner, while emotional cheating doesn't

While both physical and emotional cheating can result in plenty of hurt, there exist potential health complications from physical cheating beyond impacting one's mental health. If one partner is having sex with one or more people outside their relationship, they risk transmitting STI's to their partner.

Certain STI's manifest in men's and women's bodies differently. Gonorrhea, for instance, doesn't always present with symptoms in women, similarly to chlamydia in men. Untreated STI's can lead to severe infections or infertility, or even cancer or chronic illness if a partner contracts HPV, HIV, syphilis or herpes. So if you and your partner were monogamous and you break that pact, you can put yourself and them at serious risk for health complications.

So if you didn't think cheating on your partner was bad enough, passing on a preventable STI makes you even more of an inconsiderate asshole.

Collectively, physical and emotional cheating are two broad categories of cheating that describe hurtful envelope behaviors within relationships. While both types of cheating often have behaviors that intersect, it's important to recognize what they are to protect yourself in the event they happen.

8 Signs Of Cheating That Every College Girl Should Know How To Spot

The tell-tale signs that the person you're with is absolute garbage


You may not realize it, but there are quite a few tell-tale signs that the person you're with is absolute garbage. Whether it's signs they have a side bae or signs that they're being unfaithful to you in other ways, everyone should know how to spot these red flags:

1. They won't let you anywhere near their phone

It's not cool to pry through every single message on your S.O.'s phone, but if they've been acting secretive about who they're been talking to, or what the notifications on their lock screen are, there's something they don't want you to see.

2. They ask you to do things and be things that you aren't

Are they suddenly asking you to fulfill some crazy fantasy? Or dress a certain way that's completely out of your style? Red flag.

3. They're on Tinder

Pretty self-explanatory. Nothing is more awkward than one of your friends matching with them.

4. They've become increasingly disinterested in you

Even though this doesn't for sure signal cheating (it could be your relationship dying, or a host of other reasons), it's important to pay attention to where their attention is—or isn't—in your relationship.

5. Lies have been adding up

Even if they're little white lies, a constant habit of lying from you or keeping things from you is a major red flag. It shows that your partner is accustomed to deceiving you.

6. They're really secretive or vague about their plans

Not sure what they've been doing after class or on the weekends lately? And they won't tell you? Hmm.

7. They stop posting about you completely on social media or untag themselves in your posts

Not everyone is big on social media, but if your boo is and has been throughout your relationship, and suddenly stops, that's sus.

8. There's a general sense that you aren't close anymore, for no apparent reason

Pretty broad, but if your gut is telling you that something's up, and you can't think of a good reason why, it's probably time to confront your S.O. about it.
