Hi, Virgo girl here, and I really like everything it says about Cancer, and I even had a Cancer boyfriend when I was a young teen (15) and I ended things with him because I was young still and unable to stay in a long-term relationship (I’m 47 now) but the qualities are pretty on point about what they are like in a relationship as long as they remain interested. I’ve seen some Cancer men and women in relationships and if someone else piques their interest, nothing holds them back, and the fact that they are involved with someone else doesn’t seem to matter much. They get lifted off the ground very easily like a “follow your nose” kind of thing. Its a scary thought that they could be here today and gone tomorrow and you are left with your heart in your hand as nothing is worse than healing a broken heart. And yes, its a part of life, but one I feel they seem to accept quite easily. It seems a bit cold to me. None of them ever did it to me but I’ve seen their tendency with this.
I am a scorpion female madly in love with a cancer male who is 14 years younger than I am. In the beginning he acted like he was really feeling me but once we had sex he started distancing himself. Taking long to text/call back, waiting 3weeks to see/have sex again. He says he is focused on making money so he can be set in the next 5 years but he always makes time with his friends. Everytime I try and break it off thinking he’s just not that into me he reels me back in! Ugh I’m so frustrated because I really love him but am I wasting my time!?
1. Because you didn’t happen to share just how old he actually is, we can only guess from what you’ve said, which leaves me thinking he’s probably somewhere in his mid 20’s. If this is the case, he’s likely still got a ‘soft shell’ so to speak. If he’s already had a few relationships under his belt that didn’t lead to his happily ever after too early in life, then he’s likely had some heart breaks and hasn’t yet taken the time to develop the courage to trust new commitments, that often comes for cancer men, after decades of introspection and cautious coupling.
Take the example of our Virgo friend Nancy, a wealthy executive and world traveler. On her third date, she invited her Cancer beau Edward to her tasteful, art-filled New York City apartment. Rather than marvel at her rare book collection and African pottery, Edward noticed two things: that Nancy’s living room air conditioner didn’t work, and she didn’t have an anti-slip pad under her tiny kitchen rug.
One important piece of information to keep in mind is the protective nature of Cancer when it comes to friendships. They don’t handle criticism of people they care about well. It is just part of their cosmic DNA.
This is not a good match. Cancer is much too clingy for the aloof Aquarius woman, and the two share few of the same life goals. While the Crab is ruled by emotion, the Water-bearer is ruled by intellect. The Water-bearer’s need for adventure often frightens the cautious Crab, while she finds the Cancerian man dull and boring.
This usually is not a good match. The Libra woman is often a “party girl,” while Cancer would much rather spend time at home. The Crab is a penny-pincher, too, while the Scales lady often has extravagant tastes. Libra loves positive energy, so she would have a real problem when the Crab was being, well, Crabby.
If you’re interested in meeting a Cancer guy, frequent places that attract him. Because of Cancer’s creativity and appreciation for beauty, they often attend art exhibits, galleries, and museums. Arts and crafts supply stores are another good bet. You might also find one at a home improvement store, since they love the idea of making a comfortable and attractive home.
Try not to contradict him. Everyone is wrong sometimes, and the Cancer man is no exception. That said, since Cancers are so emotionally reactive, they tend to lash out when directly contradicted or corrected in a harsh manner.
Avoid spontaneity. The occasional romantic surprise is fine, but as a general rule, avoid making any sudden wild suggestions or demanding something without any warning. Cancer guys like to keep all aspects of their life organized. This includes both physical space and intangible time.
Prepare yourself for his possessiveness. Once a Cancer starts feeling attracted to you, he will probably become notably more possessive. If you want to nurture his growing attraction, you’ll need to find ways of coping with his perceived invasion into your personal space. If you push him away, he will probably stay away for good.
This is a delicate relationship, but that’s part of what makes it so wonderful. These two water signs come together emotionally, like crashing waves, for a deep, churning, tumbling kind of union. They also come together creatively and have compatible imaginations. He will be slightly more practical than she is, and she will be his rock in stormy weather.

Slip on a sensual, flirty outfit before you approach him, like a dress that hugs your curves in all the right places. Floral perfumes in classic scents, like rose, can also create the perfect feminine ambiance around you.
Do Cancer men really hate to be teased, even insulted even if only playfully? I’m a Scorpio female who always comes across as a nice girl and oh so predictable, so I tried to opt for the playful insult to shift that perception a bit and build attraction, but something tells me it was more like a turn off for him. How then do I build attraction with him ?
I am a sag girl (35yo) my man is the cancer(49yo). We been living together a yr now. I alrrasy met his children n family. But lately I have been doubting his love for me since i recently found out he been texting an old female friend of his who i believe he has feelings for. But when i ask him he lies bout still having contact wit her. I always felt that he wanted to be wit her but chose me cus shes married. I dont know what to do. Should i leave him so he can try to be with her ? I have a strong feeling that he has feelings for her. And our relationship has ups n downs. He knows i didnt want him talking to her anymore but he does it behind my back. Any advise
Present a traditional feminine aura. Most Cancer men are attracted to women who are highly feminine in a very traditional way. Subconsciously, a Cancer male will be looking for a woman who fits his image of the ideal wife and mother. Everything from your appearance to your mannerisms should ooze femininity.
Like Scorpio and Pisces, Cancer is a water sign and therefore gifted with empathic abilities. Being exposed to a bunch of people at once can be overwhelming. In turn, this causes the symbolic crab to retreat into his shell.
Relationships are complex things, comprising hundreds of individual elements. Sun signs are one of these, however a detailed analysis of everything is required to find all the strong and weak areas. Please see the article on astrology and soulmates for more information on how astrology can be used to determine if someone is your soulmate.
Moody – If you couldn’t tell already, your Cancer man is a very moody being. His emotions can change quicker than a flash of lightening and back again before the thunder claps. One minute he’s hiding in his shell, the next he’s holding you close, and before you know it, he’s got that pincer hooked into your soft spot, then he’s back to crying in his shell again.

Men born under the sign of the Crab can be more attached to a romantic ideal than to reality – so the man you meet online or long-distance may be very different than the one you get to know. Are you compatible with your Cancer man? Find out here. Cancers can be incredibly possessive and jealous – always fearing that what they have will be taken from them or slip away. It’s often the case that extremely jealous people can become cheaters themselves, so make sure you set clear boundaries about what both of you want from your commitment.
