Amusing, but eerily accurate in some ways.
-the redhead- is one of the wisest, smartest, best looking people on the planet. Or so at least she would like to think. It's not that -the redhead- is vain - more that she is terribly susceptible to flattery. All Leos suffer from this little weakness. That's because, despite what astrologers are always saying about Leos and their confidence, secretly, deep down, they are a little unsure of themselves. This explains -the redhead-'s tendency to be strongly outspoken and extrovert one moment and quietly anxious the next.
Her close friends know all about her tendency toward self doubt. They know what a warm, genuine and generous character she can be, but they also know about her natural sensitivity. -the redhead-'s acquaintances, however, have no such insight. They feel sure that in -the redhead-, they are dealing with a dynamic, energetic and decisive person who is it would be most unwise to cross.
-the redhead- is fiery and feisty - she gives the impression of being someone who knows it all. As a matter of fact, whilst she does not know it 'all', she does know quite a lot of it. -the redhead- is well read, well researched and always well presented. she cuts a dash, she has 'presence.' Heads turn when she enters the room. -the redhead- is aware of the impression she makes but not entirely comfortable with it. She knows that people are responding to her big pretense, not her true personality. That's why she so deeply treasures the company of loved ones who are strong enough to see through her facade and respect her for the mere mortal that she actually is.
Another infamous line that we redheads of the female persuasion have to hear all the time is "Hey, are you a natural redhead?" as the conjecturer's eyes make a beeline for your crotch.
That line ensures that you are never, ever gonna find out, mister. Granted, your life is dreary and your need for color I can understand, but we redheads are tired of being reduced to
a mystery to be solved.
