Cancer Man Traits
Like his ruling planet, the moon, the Cancer man might come off as a bit mysterious at first. He prefers to hold his cards close to the chest, and he doesn’t like to give his secrets away. Give him a little time though, and you’ll soon realize that the Cancer man is mostly just shy. He’s also a bit of a homebody, preferring the comforts of home and what’s familiar to risks and the unknown. Not that the Cancer man doesn’t have any ambition, but he’ll always err on the cautious side. This makes him extremely good at whatever job he takes on though, because whatever provides him and his with financial security is not only worth holding onto, but excelling in. The need for security trickles into his emotions as well though, so if you’re interested in a Cancer man, have patience, because he’s not going to open up to you immediately; there’s a reason the symbol of Cancer is a crab after all.
How to Attract a Cancer Man
The Cancer man’s reserved nature can make getting to know him difficult, but it’s hardly an impossible task. Cancer is the most emotional of the zodiac signs, and he needs to know that anyone he enters a relationship with is comfortable with their own emotions as well as others. So, if you want to grab a Cancer man’s attention, lead with your feelings and not only will he notice you, he will reciprocate. And if there’s anything more important to a Cancer man than his security, it’s his family, so if you want to attract a Cancer man, show him how much family, in whatever way you define it, is just as important to you. Cancers are nurturing by nature and want to lavish that on their family for the rest of their lives, so if you want to attract a Cancer man, know that family has to be in your future.
How to Date a Cancer Man
If you’ve managed to attract a Cancer man and are interested in furthering your relationship, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind. Remember, Cancer is the crab. When crabs feel threatened, they pull into their shells. Cancer men can be incredibly loving and nurturing, but they are also self-protective. Never play hard-to-get with a Cancer man, you’ll just confuse him and he’ll distance himself from you. Let him know how you feel and show him loving attention.
The Cancer man is also very tuned-in to social cues, so make sure that you follow through on your commitments. Don’t cancel or change a date unless you absolutely have to. Provide appropriate verbal and physical affection and let him know that you appreciate his attention. As far as dates go, keep in mind that your Cancer man in love mostly wants to be with you. You don’t have to over-schedule time together or plan some grand adventure each time you go out. Instead, allow for plenty of time to enjoy each others’ presence and conversation.
How to Communicate With a Cancer Man
The sensitivity of a Cancer man extends to his communication style. This is a man who is extremely sensitive to both verbal and non-verbal cues. Both casual and serious communication require your full attention. If he detects inconsistencies between what you are saying and your body language, he may wonder if you are being honest with him.
While clear and frequent communication is important to a Cancer man, it is also important that you avoid an overly aggressive or dramatic approach. This doesn’t mean that you should hide your true feelings, but work to ensure that your tone reflects a desire to maintain and improve your relationship. He needs to know of your love and regard.
Turn Ons of a Cancer Man
The Cancer man is a sensitive, intense soul, and nothing is sexier to him than someone who’s willing to embrace that. Like the crabs they are, Cancers guard their hearts behind hard exteriors. So, if you make an effort to prove to him that you’ve noticed his emotional triggers, he won’t be able to resist opening up for you. More than anything else in the world, the Cancer man wants a safe, comfortable home. And while he’s not afraid to work for his own dreams, knowing that you want to be the emotional support he needs to turn them into a reality is the key to securing your Cancer man’s heart for all eternity.
Turn Offs of a Cancer Man
The Cancer man is not a fighter, and he meshes poorly with people who enjoy confrontation and arguments. As such, if you enjoy starting drama to alleviate boredom, you probably won’t hear back from a Cancer man ever again. They’re also not overly fond of emotionally frivolous or flirtatious people. Romance and love are sacred to the Cancer man, and it pains him to see others treat them like a game. He won’t flirt back, he won’t play along, and he certainly won’t go on a second date with you if you can’t take the situation seriously. He’ll clam up instead, delete your number, and go hang out with his family instead.
