Not everyone responds to compliments in the same way.
Some feel awkward and weird when praised, while others lick every word and glow positively when told they’re fabulous, beautiful, smart, or irresistible.
Each zodiac sign has their own unique way of handling compliments.

Sometimes it seems as if the compliment was invented with the Leo personality in mind.
Proud and haughty, they love to bask in the limelight that comes from endless platitudes and slavish adulation.

If you’re into their style – they’d much rather see real action to prove it than meaningless flowery words.

“Thank you very much and be right back!”.

At first glance, they may appear enthusiastic about praise. But then they go off to forensically examine every word until they turn it into a negative.

Expect to be questioned about the true meaning of your compliment!
