Cancer Man in Love

A cancer man can be described as being one of the shyest zodiac signs of them all. He is a very closed-off person who takes their time getting to know people, and he doesn’t trust easily. He doesn’t like to be the center of attention and is definitely choosy about whom he has a conversation with. However, a Cancer man has the capability of knowing how others around him are feeling, so when he does decide to engage in conversation he can usually tell when someone is interested or not. Aside from being shy, a Cancer man can be a bit random with his emotions and is a very traditional man that any woman would be lucky to have.

The Type of Woman Cancer Needs

Cancer men need gentle woman who will accept their genuine kindness and beautiful romantic gestures. They need a lady who will be grateful for everything he does within the relationship, especially the things he isn’t asked to do. A nagging woman or any lady who tries to take advantage of the Cancer man is simply out of the question. You must be willing to take the time to get to know Cancer, as he is a very shy individual who doesn’t open up easily. This requires a great deal of patience, another important attribute a Cancer’s lady should have. Last but not least, he needs someone who is looking for a long-term relationship, someone who will be completely loyal and eventually want to get married and start a family (almost every Cancer man’s dream is to have a decent home with several children).

Cancer in a Relationship

He would never even consider jumping into a relationship. The Cancer man takes a great deal of time getting to know his potential woman before making any sort of move. He has to ensure she is someone he can get along with and trust, someone who can make him feel comfortable and help him open up. Even after entering into a relationship, Cancer will remain shy and closed off for quite some time. It could be weeks, even months before Cancer is willing to show his innermost thoughts and passions.

This opening up may take quite some time, but once the Cancer man becomes comfortable with his woman, he simply becomes the man of everyone’s dreams. He is a traditional and conventional fellow and will open the door for his woman, bring her flowers to the doorstep, and pick her up to carry her across a puddle so she doesn’t get dirty. He is nothing short of a gentleman in all situations, which is obviously a huge catch for a lady (especially in this day and age when chivalry is practically dead).

To a Cancer man, making sure his woman is happy at all times is imperative. He wants to see her smile no matter what and will jump through fiery hoops to make it happen. He is happy to help his lady, whether it is something as simple as doing the dishes or taking out the trash, and will do so without being asked. He is happy to do things for his woman and takes pride in doing so.

Last but not least, the Cancer man is an extremely romantic individual who is always coming up with new and fascinating ways to prove his love. This could be something as simple as a beautiful song to something more extravagant like fireworks in the sky. He is likely to never cheat on you, as infidelity is an absolute no-no in his eyes and he has a no tolerance rule for cheating. He is seeking something long-term and the good majority of Cancer men want a decent home with plenty of little children running around.

Cancer in Bed

When it comes to a Cancer man in between the sheets, he prefers the more sensual and traditional way of love-making. He likes to do all of those incredibly romantic things, like taking hot bubble baths with scented candles or aligning the bed with rose pedals. Just like in his day-to-day life, Cancer wants to make his woman happy- and that includes in the bedroom. He will make sure his lover is satisfied and he greatly enjoys seeing her pleasured.

Negative Side of a Cancer Man

You might not notice it right away as the Cancer man is incredibly shy right off the bat, but this zodiac sign tends to be extremely moody. There moods seem to change by the hour- sometime the minute- and can go from being quiet and insecure to confident and comical. It’s hard to tell when the next mood swing is coming, and that can be incredibly annoying to those around the Cancer.

When a Cancer man enters into a relationship, he wants to put his all into his other half. He’d like to be by their side at all times and give them the world. This can come across as being clingy, and Cancers tend to be hard to break up with too. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, he just wants to give you his all- and that’s respectable.

This sign can get hurt extremely easily- a simple negative comment can send them into a deep depression. This type of over-emotional attitude can certainly get on people’s nerves, especially those close to the Cancer.

Compatibility

Cancer and Cancer: You are both sympathetic and emotional individuals who will find love and friendship in each other. However, the two of you will need to learn to deal with each others changing moods and attachments to the past to make sure the relationship stays strong.

Cancer and Pisces: The two of you have a passionate and emotional personality that will bring the two of you together. You are both able to sympathize well, which will allow Pisces to handle the Cancer mood swings. This relationship is built to last as both of you are on the same page on an emotional level. Pisces is undoubtedly the best zodiac choice for a Cancer!

Cancer and Virgo: Although the two of you are incredibly different, if you can find a way to put up with these differences you can find a deep appreciation for one another and build a very long-lasting relationship.

Cancer Man in a Nutshell

Although he is very shy and closed-off, he is still a bearer of never-ending mood swings that seem to change with each hour that passes. He is undoubtedly one of the best zodiac signs when it comes to relationships, as he is a hard-working, romantic, and conventional man is would do anything to put a smile on his lovers face. He believes in long-term relationships and is likely not to cheat, as Cancer looks down upon cheating immensely. He needs a woman who can stay by his side and be just as loyal and loving as he is, not taking his kindness for granted. He is most definitely looking for the woman of his dreams and 9 times out of 10 he wants to build a long-term relationship that leads to marriage, a nice house, and lots and lots of children.

    Need help!
    Hello,
    Firstly I would like to appreciate for the quality content your website promotes. Impressed by number of articles and dating tips I am seeking for help and friendly advice regarding my love life. So here’s a guy I have been dating since several months. We met on social media and know each other for good 6/7 years but were not too close back then. When we exchanged numbers he used to compliment me on every pic I put as my WhatsApp status. We used to have short conversations as it was me who usually ignores his texts and leaves unreplied because of his habit of late replying I addressed this issue many times that I hate late replies and would appreciate if he replies fast. He would give reasons and convince me by his sweet words. As I was least bothered I was ok with it. Last July we had a detailed conversation and really enjoyed the time together. It was the time when I badly needed someone to fill the hollow in my life so by the time we became close and he would say things like he is interested in me. But his habit of late replying still lied there which became the root cause of our fights. I being overly sensitive reacted everytime I get a late reply and he would make me come round. Soon I started taking things seriously and on the other hand I realized he isn’t ready to make a move so I confronted him as to what does he want. He in return said he wants nothing. I cut communication with him after a month he again texted and we became intimate. But he didn’t asked me for a date even after so long neither we talked on phone call or voice message. It was the main thing that frustrated me like hell. One night we were chatting he told me he was on Skype with his sister and that’s why he replied me late. After few texts he stopped replying while I could see him online. I threw several texts but no reply. I out bursted with anger and said to him not to text me again. He replied me tomorrow that he slept. We had a terrible fight and I again cut communication with him. After 20 days he texted again to make me round. I ignored the text. He again texted me and I replied acting normal. We again started chatting this time I acted totally carefree distant and formal not speaking a single word for what he did to me last time. He was continuously asking what happened to me and why I am behaving weird and formal. I totally denied my behavior and told him he was getting paranoid. He didn’t believe me and got annoyed. He also told me everything was serious and I have become his habit. I took it as a joke and cut the convo. Next day when he wanted to get intimate I refused and asked him to learn to live without me. He told me he likes me and want to be with me forever. He also apologized for his behavior when we fought. But still he is not making a move or asking me for a date it’s been 4 days. I am really frustrated and depressed and really want him to take things on next level. Please help and guide me what to do keeping myself calm in front of him. Thanks in advance.

        There are times to let the stars influences your life, and there are times to make decisions based on your current relationship. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Ash!

      It sounds as though the two of you need to make a decision about what you want for your future. He has informed you of his feelings toward you. It seems as though you want to nourish this relationship. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Ash!

          You are interested in nourishing a relationship with him. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Spend additional time with him in person. If you do not feel like making the first move, then do what you think is appropriate to attract his attention. You will find benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Ash!

            I am so frustrated that he doesn’t open up to me. He wants everything from me but is not actually ready to give anything in return. Whenever I pull away he starts seeking attention and convinces me that he is serious with me. And when I get convinced he behaves carefree which hurts. Please give me advice what shall I do 🙁

              It sounds as though you have concerns about your relationship. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he ignores you or treats you poorly, then you are aware of his feelings. If he wants to respect your relationship, then nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Ash!

    The cancer man I would like to move from friendship to more has been hurt before. He and I have been friends for years and upon his urging started spending time together one on one at my house but mainly at his home. I enjoy our time together and I feel he enjoys mine as well but I know he is afraid of being hurt again. I really care about him and I want him to trust and believe that I wouldn’t hurt him. I bave tried to be patient with him because I do understand what he has been through and I understand it takes time to heal. Should I tell him how I feel? Should I give him space and time to realize that I am not like the rest of the women that hurt him? Any Cancer men that are willing to share some advice would be appreciated. Rhe more time I spend with him the more I fall for him and as much as I care about him, I must protect myself. I have all this love I would like to give but I don’t want to give it to someone who isnt ready to receive it. I dont know if he is waiting to know how I feel or if he doesn’t feel the same way I do. Any ladies that have been in this position? How did your situation work out?

Make a decision about what you want for your future. Speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person.

    Help!!!!

    So I met this Cancer guy (07/21/1993-Venus in Gemini) in the Police Academy. We went through the 7 1/2 month Academy and I never knew that he was “indirectly” interested. He would ALWAYS gravitate towards me and I NEVER saw it. BUT YES I OBSERVED HIM THROUGHOUT THE ACADEMY. (I am a Leo 07/23/1991-Venus in Virgo) Well 1 year and 7 months later I finally texted him wondering if he had a girlfriend. He said no. Needles to say we both wanted to be intimate with each other and we finally did. It was amazing by the way. I was shocked and wanted more. I left my glasses over his house and had to come back. He asked if I was there for round 2. I asked if he was sure and he laughed and said, I’m just playing. The next day I texted him, “How are you feeling”? He left it on read so I text him two days later and told him that I could not stop thinking about him and that I was falling for him. He replied, chilll. I text him again two days later and told him that I would like to take my time with him next time. He said, “I can’t”. I asked why and his response was, “It’s not you but I am not feeling the sex thing though”. I confessed myself to him for the second time and no response. I then waited 10 days to contact him and I asked him if he was interested. He told me, “Well we can never be together, but we can do it again if you want”. I asked him why? I advised him that I would rather know and move on than pursue something that will never happen. He left me on read. Someone please give me some insight on this.

      He has informed you of his thoughts and feelings. The question is no longer answered by the stars, but by his words. He does not want to maintain a relationship with you at this time. Allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere, and determine what you want for your future without him. If he reaches out to you in the future, then ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with him. Have a great day, Pashay!

    Hello! Well I read through all these comments haha and it’s helping me feel better although I’d love some advice 💖
    I met my cancer man the very beginning of June. Im a Libra. We are both born the same year and come to find out, only live a mile from each other! He’s a Gemini cusp though, so he’s a bit more independent and I haven’t experienced the jealousy or possessive streak others claim they possess, other things are very cancer-like of him in every way. I’ve never dated one before! He is very doting and romantic. First date was perfect, a beautiful dinner at a nice restaurant and we talked for hours about our lives and he told me a lot of his childhood then (it was very tragic.) mainly being he lost his mom as a toddler, then he was cared for by his grandparents & dad. His dad got cancer when he was a teen and died too. Somewhere in between grandpa died and he just had grandma. Grandma is like his mom, his hero! She died right after he finished law school, like 4 years ago. Come to find out later that his aunt whom he was close to as well was going to adopt him in elementary school and she tragically died in a plane accident days following. Anyways, it’s a lot! But his disposition is bright & cheerful. Right away, I could sense how innate and romantic he was. Texting me pet names and pics of himself, sharing his day and asking about mine. Always making me feel special. He was pretty late to second date (like a few hrs) though it was casual meeting downtown to watch a small concert, I was pretty annoyed but patient. It was fun, he met some of my old friends and seemed to relax. we kept in contact and then sometimes a few days at a time I wouldn’t hear from him – it was a honestly couple weeks before we went out on our third date. I told him before our third date it honestly didn’t seem like he was interested in dating but he told me he wanted to give it another chance. I felt closer to him after this. The first month we met, I was seeing a couple other guys I met around the same time but they didn’t work out. So after I got back from a week long vacation, me and cancer got closer. I wanted to wait to sleep together, he said he was on board. We had been seeing each other a month and I did sleep with him right before I left for my vacation. It was amazing! our dates were great, I felt like there was an even amount of interest and involvement from both of us. Each time we slept together, he revealed more of his heart and more of the things that were painful for him, mainly about his family. It doesn’t seem like he’s ever had a serious gf. He’s always been focused on school/career and family stuff in the past. He likes to often be with friends or alone. Sometimes he’ll take off for the weekend and not tell me, but sometimes he communicates and it’s good. I’m always grateful and affectionate (it’s my nature anyways) we have fun and I do feel safe with him. I was kinda hurt the end of the second month, I found out he had a one night stand with one of my old friends the year prior. But I decided not to bring that up. He’s never said he’s seeing anyone else. But he told me early on he’s only met one other girl from the dating app we met on, and he never feels this motivated to meet someone and he loves kissing me and he’s happy I live close. I told him I used to date younger guys, but it never worked out because they didn’t know what they wanted. “Yeah you can’t do that, don’t date those younger guys”. He would tell me. The end of the second month, after I met his friends & I asked if they said anything about me. he said his friends say he is in love, and he laughed with his eyes smiling. He’s very doting & affectionate, even in public. Which I really love! We went to a beautiful dinner before I left town again, the end of the second month. We talked for hours, More about his dad, like it was losing his best friend. He came home with me. We were cuddling and talking. He has one thing that bugs me, he has to sleep in his own bed and he won’t stay overnight. I hate that. He says he is warming up to the idea, I told him you haven’t even had my breakfast, I’m a good cook. Because I am lol. And yes, I’ve been to his house too but usually if I have to work, I can’t stay either. And he said you know, I have to work too. I can’t remember how that got brought up though. Anyways before he left he said he would be missing me. He kissed me goodbye. He text me to have a good and safe trip. I sent him a pic the next day while I was gone on the long weekend, he didn’t reply. Which wasn’t like him. I text him the day after I got back. He replied back asking how my trip was. He said he had worked all weekend and was going to a concert his boss got him tickets for. We briefly discussed tickets for another concert he had planned on getting tickets for me prior, but he didn’t confirm or say anything else. I let it go. I just missed him. But then a few days went by, I tried to call him, no answer. So I let a week go by, Give him his space. He said prior to me sometimes he is sad and reflective. And maybe the most significant thing he’s said before is he needs to love better. (This was shortly before I met his friends, which are like family.) I text him saying he looked good in his tie, that he looked happy and I was proud of him. (For winning a case at work.) no reply. That was a few days ago. So it’s been nearly a couple weeks since I heard from him. He’s only posted one other pic of him at dinner with a friend. He wanted to be friends with me on fb & insta early on. We still are connected on there. Everything I read, esp about cancers men is give them space when they are distant, they come back to you. I’ve spent the last week crying. I’ve been so upset, my chest hurt so bad I couldn’t breathe well and it was physically painful. I don’t know how we got here, I don’t know if he lost interest and doesn’t want to say, or my best guess is he told me all these intimate things and was falling for me fast and it scared the shit out of him. Now I feel like I’m in limbo and I’m sick about it. I work two jobs, I have lots of good hobbies and few close friends. I confide in them, they said be patient. I’m trying. I haven’t called or text again. I’m so stressed about saying the wrong thing, about pushing him back further in his shell. It kills me he’s not saying anything, like nothing happened between us. I feel like the moment I may stop caring, he will come back around. This is common for me in past relationships. But I haven’t dated anyone in a year, I was really excited about this guy and I trusted him. Are we doomed? How do I get my cancer man back and should I say anything or keep waiting? I hate this so much, my heart hurts.

      Your strong emotional relationship with him certainly are influencing your life. He has not responded to you, and your friends have told you to not reach out to him. Give him an opportunity to reach out to you. If he doesn’t, then determine what you want for your future without him. Ensure that you strengthen your relationships with your friends at this time. Have a great day, Jacky!

    So Ive never done this forum thing before but I am just so clueless at this point. I am a Taurus female I have been dating a cancer man for about 2 months now. We have clicked perfectly from our goofiness together, to our same understanding on how we raise our kids (we don’t have kids together- previous relationships) , to how perfect our intimacy is with one another all the way down to the way that we both understand each other. I am a very affectionate person and everytime I do something he has never experienced he gets so excited and states how he has never experienced this with someone before or how he loves specific things about me. Since the day we have met we have talked or texted each other pretty much everyday. We have had no issues or confrontation just one day it seems like he just pulled back and stopped communicating as much and hasn’t answered my phone calls or anything. That has only been happening for about 4 days but I am concerned as to what is happening here. He will look at a text and leave it on read with no response. Can someone please help!

      The two of you have developed a strong relationship with each other. It is clear that you feel a strong emotional and social connection with each other. It is possible that something caused him to feel confused or uncertain. He is not responding to you, and this may because of various reasons. Perhaps attempt to see him in person, as this will give you an opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings with him. Have a great day, Taurus!
