Thinking about ignoring that Leo woman in your life? Bold move, my friend! Sometimes, the whole “playing hard to get” tactic works like a charm on these fiery ladies. Other times, and in most cases, not so much.
Leos are notoriously stubborn, and if you start ignoring them, they may just assume you’re no longer interested and move on to the next admirer waiting in the wings. Before you decide to ignore her on purpose, you need to understand what makes the Leo woman tick and why ignoring her simply does not work.
Ignoring Her Can Backfire
Ignoring a Leo woman is a risky business. Sometimes, it works, grabbing her attention and making her chase you. But often, it completely backfires.
The big cats of the horoscope are notoriously stubborn and prideful. If you ignore them, they may take it as a sign you’re just not interested and move on. After all, Leos know their worth and expect to be worshiped. Why waste time on someone who doesn’t seem to notice them?
Even if ignoring her does pique her interest at first, it likely won’t last long. These ladies crave attention, affection, and validation. If you continue to act uninterested, she’ll get bored and look for someone else to lavish her with praise and affection.
The other thing to keep in mind is that Leos tend to be hot-tempered. If she realizes you’ve been ignoring her on purpose to get a reaction, she may become angry and lash out. Her ego and pride have been wounded, and she won’t take kindly to manipulation or games.
What To Do Instead of Ignorance
If she really did you wrong and you’re just not feeling talking to her anymore, then for sure, go ahead and do your thing. But if you’re actually interested in her, I wouldn’t recommend the silent treatment. Instead, do this:
Talk, Talk, And Talk
These women value honesty, openness, and sincerity in relationships more than any other sign, so ignoring them can come across as dismissive or manipulative. A better course of action is to be sincere and talk to her directly.
You should rather be sincere and talk to her instead of ignoring her because communication is the foundation of any healthy connection. Ignoring this queen of the jungle may cause her to feel hurt, confused, and frustrated as she tries to interpret your silence.
Be A Man
Yes, you read that right. Be a man. Ignoring her just to play games is not the best strategy. The astrological lions are warmhearted, generous and love attention, so giving her the cold shoulder may work temporarily to pique her interest. However, in the long run, ignoring her just to be manipulative will likely backfire.
But what should I do? Ask her out for a coffee, dinner, or a casual meetup. Show her your genuine interest in getting to know her through quality time spent together. She is not interested in your “ignorance” games.
And can you blame her? If a guy ignores me for days and then hits me up, I’d be so over it. The last thing I’d want is to talk to him. Moral of the story – be real with her. Your interest should be genuine, not some mind game. Ask her out and see where it goes!
Soft Silent Treatment
An occasional soft silent treatment, meaning you wait an hour or two to respond to her messages, can work wonders. This shows her that you have a life of your own and are not always available at her beck and call. It creates intrigue and mystery that can drive Leo women wild with curiosity, wanting to know what have you so preoccupied that you couldn’t respond sooner.
But do respond eventually, as completely ignoring her for too long will likely just make her feel rejected and upset, diminishing her interest in you. So, yes, a delayed response can work to get a Leo woman’s attention and build anticipation but do not overdo the silent treatment, as she needs regular reassurance and responses to feel secure and valued in a relationship.
Don’t Play Games With Her
So, does Ignoring a Leo woman work? Absolutely not! That can be a risky move that doesn’t always go how you want. You might think playing those cat-and-mouse games is fun, but remember, she’s the big cat, you’re the little mouse, and ignoring her could make things worse.
Instead of ignoring her for whatever reason, just be real with her. If there’s something about her you don’t like, let her know. If there’s something you do like, let her know that, too. If you love her, tell her that. She’ll appreciate you being straight with her, and you won’t have to wonder if she’s gonna hit you up or not.
