Understanding the Cancer Man
The Cancer man is polite and courteous, a kind of old-times’ knight. He cares for safety, family and traditional values very much. He is very passionate and, at the same time, rather careful about where his passion is headed to. He does not show his passion from the beginning because he must trust the chosen one first.
It is very easy to fall in love with a Cancer man for his sensitive and artistic nature, for his subtlety and fantasy, but it is difficult to put up with his anxieties, his frequent and complicated changes of mood, suspicion and emotional blackmail. The woman besides a Cancer man has to learn to tell his mood by different signs and attitudes: a peevish grumbling might mean that he feels rejected and needs encouragement; if he becomes pettifogging and quarrelsome, it means he feels unappreciated and needs to be praised; if he gets close to you, it means he needs comforting and fondling.
The Cancer man needs proofs of your love and faithfulness and he looks for steady relationships. Unfaithfulness hurts him terribly and even if he rationally forgives it, emotionally he never does. His sexuality is not impetuous, but warm and rich, imaginative and sensual.
The Cancer man knows and feels women very well, he knows how to make them happy and his erotic ways aim at each part of his partner’s body.
How to Win
the Cancer Man’s Heart
The Cancer man feels attracted to beautiful, warm, lively and optimistic women. He doesn’t take the first step too quickly because he is insecure and rather shy at the beginning. Therefore, you can have the initiative: show him you appreciate him, make him feel safe and try to spirit him up.
Put on sensual and feminine clothes, wear perfumes that remind him of the summer roses, create a romantic atmosphere. When making conversation, let the Cancer man understand in a very subtle way that family is sacred to you, that you dream of having a house of your own sometime, with a garden and a yard, that you love children. After a special meal, (the Cancer man is a gourmand), over a glass of wine, encourage him to share memories of your adolescence, of your childhood...but let him do most of the telling because he is a born teller, with an impressive memory.
Try to know the people that are close to him, especially his mother, whom if you succeed to win over you may consider that it is half the battle.
Don’t try to arouse the Cancer man’s jealousy because you will make him feel insecure and he may withdraw if he thinks he cannot trust you enough. Try not to contradict him, it’s better to be tactful and persuasive, and if he gets angry, don’t react, he’ll get over it naturally...
Remember that the moment the Cancer man falls in love, he becomes possessive and somewhat conventional. To keep the fire, prove him you are a special woman and surprise him every now and then with moments full of romanticism and fantasy.
