The Cancer Man: Love, Sex, Friendship, Style
The Cancer Man
shy, and mysterious, Cancer is ruled by the Moon. A Cancer man is reserved when
he first meets someone new and it will take many more meetings before you can
get close to him. At the first sign of overly aggressive friendliness, the crab
will sidle out of sight and bury himself in the tide. Tread softly, and wait for
him to open up of his own accord. Doing things by force never works with a
It can be difficult to pick out a Cancer man from a first impression. He may be
nervous and fickle one minute, then extremely confident the next. These mood
shifts are influenced by the lunar phases of the moon. Transformations such as
these are not indicative of a split personality like Gemini, but a changeable
one. The Cancer man is capable of many emotions, often one after the other,
running the gamut from one end to the next.
Waving his pincers around but really using them only for self-defense, the Crab
will retreat into his shell if he feels threatened. His is a sensitive soul, so
handle him with care and be mindful of hurting his feelings. If the Cancer man
initially appears a little crabby, sarcastic, or distant, remember that it's
just his outward persona - a smokescreen to scare off the world. Inside, he is
gentle, kind, and affectionate, if you can get behind his walls.
Always polite and a little worldly, this sign is the epitome of old school
gentlemanly manners. Chivalry comes as second nature to these traditionalists.
Most Cancer men are also very family-oriented, and will want to set up a home
filled with the patter of tiny feet. He never takes this lightly, however, and
can take time feeling secure enough to embark on this adventure. His home is his
sanctuary and it is where he feels safest. Highly intuitive, a Cancer man can
often guess at what others are thinking or feeling. Famous Cancerians include
Tom Cruise, Kevin Bacon, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hanks.
Love, Sex, Romance, and Relationships with an Cancer Man
Love is the ultimate mystery to the Cancer man and one that he is always trying
to attain. However, his shyness and innate distrust of others makes it difficult
for the Cancerian to allow himself to fall in love. His guards are always up
when it comes to his emotions, and few Cancer men fall in love at first sight,
or even believe in the concept.
When he finds the partner of his dreams which may take awhile as the Crab is
rather picky the Cancer man will throw himself into the romance of the
situation, buying flowers, riding white horses, and slaying metaphorical dragons
for them. The traditional side of this man means that he will shower his partner
with thoughtful gifts, wine and dine them in the best restaurants, and try to
grant their every wish.
He will take the garbage out, fix that wobbly shelf, navigate on road trips, and
kill bugs for his partner, and most important of all he will do it all without
being asked. His loyalty and keen attention to the needs and wants of his lover
make the Crab one of the best partners of the zodiac.
Governed by Water, the diffident, quiet Cancer man is a surprisingly ardent and
passionate lover behind bedroom doors. His incredible intuition for others'
thoughts and feelings translates into a sensitive, skilful lover. He is sensual
and loves the effects of light on rippling water. Romance and sex go together
for the Cancer man. Draw a warm bath, scatter some rose petals, and light a few
candles your Cancer lover will appreciate the effort. Warm and imaginative,
the Cancer man is very good at pleasing their partners.
In relationships, a Cancer man requires tenderness and reassurance, or else he
might swim away from you, disappointed, hurt, and vowing never to trust another
again. His own devotion to a partner is unquestionable and he will expect the
same in return. Infidelities are never tolerated by the Cancer man, and he would
sooner leave a relationship than try to swallow his hurt feelings and work
towards a resolution.
He is generally considered most compatible with Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, and
Taurus. See also Sun sign compatibility. However, there is a lot more to compatibility than only the comparison of the
Sun signs. For example, how do your Venus signs compare? Find out
