Dating a Cancer Man

Getting to Know Astrology’s Sensitive Soul

The Cancer man is a water sign and he has feelings that run as deep as the ocean. He’s sensitive, intuitive and he’s got a heart of gold that’s filled with empathy for others, especially those in need. Though it’s pretty easy to make friends with him, winning his affections can be challenging. He doesn’t just fall for anyone no matter how charming or persuasive. If he finds you intriguing and he feels comfortable in your company, he’ll start to let his guard down just a little, and perhaps enough to ask you out so he can get to know you better. Before you know it, you could be dating a Cancer man.

Hello There, Mr. Cancer

If you’d like to strike up a conversation with a Cancer man, you should know that superficial conversation will be met with a superficial response. The Cancer man is no pushover. If you move in too hard or too fast, or you ask a lot about him without revealing something of yourself, he’ll quickly retreat into his shell, like a crab. That shell is his protection from people and the elements of nature that might seek to hurt his sensitive inner being. He doesn’t trust easily, but if he sees something in you that mirrors a part of him, he will let you get closer.

The Cancer man will never come on too strong and neither should you. He’ll distance himself from someone who is abrupt or too intense. He doesn’t move fast in relationships, instead preferring to take his time. He doesn’t believe in love at first sight and he doesn’t fall for just anyone. But, when he’s really interested, you’ll know it as he shifts from reserved to romantic in a heartbeat. But, it’s likely to take some time before that happens.

Dating a Cancer Man

The Cancer man’s ruling planet (or in this case Earthly satellite) is the Moon which changes signs approximately every two-and-a-half days, giving him a somewhat changeable personality. His moods, though short-lived and somewhat subtle, can be a challenge to some and to others they are hardly noticeable. At heart, though he’s a thoughtful and caring romantic. When you’re dating a Cancer man he’ll often give you little tokens of affection that symbolize his feelings or commemorate a special moment you’ve shared.

He is charming and sincere, so if there are any rough patches in your dating relationship, they will likely pass with little fanfare. If there is ever real trouble in paradise, your Cancer man will put up with a lot. He’s not being passive, he’s just hoping that things will change for the better. He’s one of the most likely of the signs to weather the storm if things start to take a turn for the worse. Even if he feels like his partner is taking him for granted, he won’t stop trying to fix the relationship. However, his passive nature should not be taken for granted. Inside, he’s bottling up the various emotions he’s feeling. If it gets too intense, he can sometimes blow up unexpectedly. It’s in this act that he’s hoping to stabilize any wild and crazy behavior. It’s a big gamble that usually pays off.

The Cancer man will go out of his way to make your relationship happy and content. But if pushed too far, he’ll not only explode in volcanic proportions, he’ll then retreat back into that shell. Then it’s really hard to get him to come back out. Nothing in life lasts forever, and that includes the Cancer man’s patience.

What the Cancer Man Really Wants When Dating

What the Cancer man really wants in a dating relationship is to be with someone who loves home and family as much as he does. That’s not to say you’ll never go out socially or that you’ll be homebound for the duration of the dating relationship. Home is where he feels best. Home is where he recharges his batteries, so being with someone who likes it as much as he does makes him feel happy and content.

Cancer dates with the hopes that he will find a joyful, committed relationship. If you’re dating a Cancer man, he’s already thinking long term. He wants and needs a partner who supports the way he feels in the moment. Pushing him into doing things won’t help matters between you. He may do something he’s not particularly into doing if he knows it pleases you, but he never likes being told what to do. Like his fellow water signs, having a little downtime is critical to his overall well-being. In other words, you’ll be less likely to see the “crabby” side of him if you can occasionally give him space. It doesn’t have to exclude you, but sometimes it might. So let him have his way. Give an afternoon to his hobbies so he can feel rested and renewed. You’ll both benefit from having that type of freedom in your relationship.

Sex With a Cancer Man

When it comes to sex, the Cancer man uses all of his senses—touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound. He’s notoriously one of the most sensual lovers in astrology. As a water sign, the Cancer man is at his best when he’s in or near water. So a midnight skinny dip or a boat trip for two under the moonlight will only intensify his naughty side. He also loves food, often incorporating it into lovemaking, so don’t forget the whipped cream. As the zodiac sign that represents the chest and breasts, he is also a man who appreciates cleavage in any size, so feel free to tempt and tease him with all you’ve got, even if it’s not a lot.

What He’s Looking for Long Term

What the Cancer man is looking for long term is the classic relationship that is romantic and leads to love that lasts. He’s a renaissance man. He wants to be with someone who is smart, dedicated, loyal and loving like he is. It also helps if his partner is as smart and quick-witted as he is. He finds intelligence to be very sexy. He’s always looking at his mate with family in mind—looking to see if they’ll be a good homemaker and parent. He feels a strong desire to create a family in his own life. However, if he does not have children of his own, he will likely adopt or at the very least he’ll be a wonderful uncle to his nieces and nephews. Either way, he makes a wonderful, loving parent.
