Cancer and Aries? Water and Fire, two opposite poles. I don't know where you found your Aries, but it will be very difficult (if not impossible) to stand the zodiac's child. Theoretically, by all the rules of art, I should say "don't even think about it". Why? Let's take them in turns.
It was probably love at first sight because Cancer has the tendency to be protective, and Aries certainly needs compassion, understanding and much, much love. You'll soon discover, though, that Aries likes seeing and doing things very clearly and exactly. The depths you can see, the shades and delicacy of details, especially as regards sentimental life, don't really go with Aries' style.
Not only will you have to appeal to all the understanding and devotion you are capable of (and maybe even more...), but you will also have to put up with many things that don't go with your nature: direct, precise criticism (that Aries is very good at), a straightforward attitude that can easily hurt you. The sensitiveness of a Cancer needs truths told more gently than an Aries is capable of. Yes, that's right, Aries is not very tactful.
To any Cancer native, home and family are the most important. Aries needs to conquer the world, to start projects all the time, to visit friends. If, God forbid, you have an argument, you're in trouble: there is nothing an Aries wouldn't do to win, even in a philosophical debate, and if your feelings are hurt along the way... that's it, be happy if your Aries notices it, because it usually doesn't happen.
Next to an Aries you'll feel like you were struck by lightning, this is how much fire this native holds: the desire to live life to the full, to start things, to create something is overwhelming. And since Cancer often finds insults where they don't exist (they say Cancer people are moody and highly sensitive), you might cut and run and your Aries might not notice.
Aries reacts, takes action and decides quickly. Your reactions and actions are more prudent. If you manage to influence your Aries in this regard, it will be all right, but you'll need much patience and commitment.
You want stability, while Aries looks for new worlds to discover: I can hardly imagine where you two met, that's how different your interests are! To an Aries, love always has to be passionate, like in the beginning, otherwise (s)he'll start looking for another partner.
Sex is very "hot" with an Aries, especially at the beginning, but I don't think you'll be very satisfied with it either, because Aries will find it very difficult and often impossible to reach your sentimental depth and discover your complicated views on love.
The problem is your Aries doesn't have the patience: even if (s)he tries, sooner or later (s)he will get bored and try to speed up, to live to a rhythm that is tiresome and exhausting to you. Aries is all Fire, but no warmth though.
Aries doesn't even notice the things that hurt you; what is a secret to you, to him/her, it's a truth that has to be told. If you manage to keep the flame burning for a year, it will last, that's the kind of relationship it is. But a year... has 365 days. And nights! And that is not a very attractive number to a hasty Aries...
Think long and hard before moving on, dear Cancer, because your high sensitiveness could make you suffer without realizing how or when it happened.
