He’s consumed with nostalgia, which can be sentimental but more often than not comes off as remembering his former glory days. He can be negative and want to live in the past of “how it used to be.” Sometimes, this can lead him to channel his creative side to make up for what has been lost. But other times, he can develop a fear of change and progression that will ultimately leave him stuck in what once was.
He also can get very passive and quiet. He will follow your lead and is very compliant in providing you with what you want but won’t speak up if he feels neglected (even if his feelings of being ignored are just a wistful by-product of his eternal moodiness). Instead, he recedes further into his shell, and if you aren’t able to coax him out fast enough, he might lash out with those claws of his.
And while he’s not normally unpredictable in his actions, a Cancer man can have major mood swings. He can go from friendly and loving to bitter and reserved, and you aged feelings are difficult to heal, and he can spend a lifetime holding onto a grudge.
This guy has a lot of walls and only lets them down when he’s one hundred percent sure he can trust you, so open up! When he’s ready to go to the next level in your relationship, he will, but pushing him out of his comfort zone in any way is a big no-no. If you’re together, he’ll put his heart in your hands, so be extra careful with it! Ragging too much on the parts of himself he’s insecure about is a surefire way to start drama.
Let’s just say sex with a Cancer will always feel like an intimate affair
If you two are in love, he will be loyal, and be your best friend forever. He’s the type of guy you know you can always rely on, and he’ll always be there to lend a hand to whoever may need it. If you’re looking for someone who you can be extra, unabashedly cheesy with, he’s your lobster-er, crab.
Look for a Cancer who has a strong passion or hobby outside of his relationships (a good rule of thumb for all partners, TBH)
Their intuitive nature makes for a satisfying time between the sheets. They’re naturally romantic-think massages, prolonged eye contact, hour-long make-out sessions, and, sure, even rose petals. They’re so
As the first water sign of the zodiac, Cancer is intuitive and sensitive, and as a cardinal sign, he’s motivated to make intimate emotional connections that promise to last. At first, this shy guy probably can’t even look your way without blushing and turning away. He’s prone to overthinking things and might not be able to approach you, but if you make the first move, he’ll hold on tight and do anything for you. Cancer is incredibly nurturing, committed, and protective of his loved ones and does everything in his power to make sure you’re comfortable and feel safe with him.
Of course, this abundance of emotion can backfire when a Cancer man is not in a good mood. His sensitivity and need for assurance can make him really needy and draining at times. And yes, while his commitment to you is obviously a huge plus, the flip side is it can turn to clinginess, which is likely due to low self-esteem and insecurity. You might struggle to do anything by yourself, and when you address it, he might take it the wrong way and think you just don’t like him. It’s common for him to cling and obsess over you-or really any situation, for that matter. Yes, he can get a little jealous. He’ll always want answers, since it’s hard for him to let go of something that bothers him. A possible solution?
