A Cancer man is sensitive to his partner’s emotions and has the need to connect on a deep level. If he was badly hurt by his family situation, there is a chance he will be too afraid to open up even with the seemingly perfect partner. He doesn’t like conflict and will in most crazy situations stay calm. When he is irritated by something, he will probably say nothing, but swallowing negative emotions might make him sick, so it is important for a Cancer to find a partner who will support his expression. He is tender and caring, will probably never forget his partner’s birthday, and could bore some of the zodiac signs crazy. If one is for adventure without emotional base or purpose, they definitely shouldn’t choose a Cancer partner.
When this man falls in love, all of his insecurities will instantly surface. Cancer men have a tendency to stick to certain rules of behavior and courtship because it makes them feel a bit safer and more secure. What this man often fails to realize is the fact that what he has to show, counts for a lot in a world of relationships, even though society seems to favor something else in a man. He is compassionate and sweet, and should show his emotional side. The right partner will understand this immediately.
Pisces: Cancers and Pisces are thought to be an extremely good match. Both are empathic and both are intuitive. Pisces will mirror some Cancer traits because Pisces is a mutable sign. Arguments are rare between the two water signs. Additionally, Pisces can handle the Cancer man’s fluctuating moods around the time of full moon; something other signs may struggle with.
If you are answering yes to these questions, you’ve come to the right place. This page is all about Cancer Sun Sign men, including their personality traits, how they love and the way they attach to others in relationships.
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.
Cancer men are too complicated. They make every thing difficult and sometimes impossible for someone to reach out to them and when they actually decide to come out of their shell its to late. The mystery is all nice and stuff but people have to be careful with these types of people because they can really play with your head and heart.
Artistic – Oh boy! There are very few signs that are as artistically gifted as Cancer. He could be the greatest guitar guru, creative on canvas, or skilled with the skill saw. No matter what area he feels drawn to master, there will be no avoiding his artistic side. Not that it’ll be a problem, as it just makes him sexier.
When in love, the Cancer man is a dedicated lover. He’s a total dream come true for someone who loves to receive affection. He can come off as the ultimate Prince Charming, making extravagant professions of adoration and writing flowery love letters to court you. But, once comfortably ensconced in a committed relationship, the connection can become more cozy than steamy. Cooking you dinner and settling in for a night of Netflix may become more his habit than hot bedroom action so that chemistry needs to be stoked, and intimacy kept vibrant with lots of touch and the willingness to always go deeper.
Romantic and devoted, he takes relationships and his partner seriously, and once settled with a mate he enjoys the home and everything associated with it. Cancer men are also often exceptionally friendly and love to help others and feel needed. That man at your office who offers hugs when you’re feeling down is probably a Cancer… (as a side note, this can be construed as flirting, often where it isn’t intended)
Usually excellent cooks, Cancer men prefer eating at home to going out, delighting in simple repast and filling comfort foods like soups and stews. Cancers are drawn to relics of yesteryear, and often have a longing for the traditions and tastes of days gone by – so you may see his home crammed with antiques and family heirlooms. He will hold onto passed-down possessions for their sentimental value, even if they are no longer beautiful to behold.
Your Cancer will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.
No, this article is based only on sun signs. Those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone’s personality.
Ruled by the moon, Cancer men may be uncommonly in touch with their emotions, able to take on roles that many of their male counterparts would be utterly lost in, like romance and parenting. You will find that chivalry is not dead with this sentimental and poetic knight in shining armor – if you can get him to take the armor off.
The Gemini woman is far too logical for emotional Cancer, and the Twin’s independent nature would threaten the Crab’s need for stability. The Twins are like quicksilver – flighty and unpredictable, and this is often just too much for the Crab to take in. Also, Gemini is often somewhat of a flirt, and Cancer would have a hard time dealing with this.
Passionate – Cancer men are notorious for their passion, though it does vary depending on their mood and current obsession. He’s got lots of energy to pursue whatever is currently on the to-do list, and If you’re lucky, you might just be on that list.
The Cancer dad is characterized by warm, loving traits. He’s always ready to cuddle and comfort his progeny. These natural-born nurturers are often found readily spooning mush, changing diapers, and rocking little ones to sleep. Being a stay-at-home dad would suit most Cancer men just fine – they would rather be home with the kids, cooking and caretaking, than out being a provider (which they can often take far too seriously). Mama’s boys themselves, a Cancer man usually has a very close relationship with his mother and will want to take care of her at home in her elder years, rather than letting her go live in a nursing home.
Due to the above in the long term this is an all or nothing man. He often does better with a strong but caring partner, rather than an ultra-sensitive one. This is a man who sometimes needs a partner to tell him to shut up and just kiss him. Debating, analyzing, justifying moods, behavior etc may get the job done eventually, but it’s very counter productive.
At the same time, the Smoking Man was an aspiring writer of espionage (and later, science-fiction) novels starring a fictional version of himself, Jack Colquitt, and based on his own secret activities, but all his drafts were rejected or altered by publishers who found them unrealistic and poorly written. This left him no choice but to continue working for the United States government. By 1991, the Smoking Man’s power was pretty much absolute. He was in direct talks with Saddam Hussein and involved in one way or another on the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas controversy, moving the Rodney King trial to Simi Valley, keeping the US government from interfering in the independence of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Academy Awards nominations, keeping the Buffalo Bills from ever winning the Super Bowl, drugging the Soviet goalkeeper Vladislav Tretiak before the Miracle on Ice, and executing extraterrestrials that survived landing on American soil.

He is tender, sweet and doesn’t talk too much. Although his sensitivity can stay hidden for most of the time, he will show it when it matters and this guaranties relationships that last, if he doesn’t underestimate himself and choose wrong partners. He is genuinely interested in his partner’s life, rarely says things just to get someone to bed, and is usually a safe choice to start a peaceful family with. On the other hand, he can be needy and insecure, and some more energized signs could see him as weak and boring.
A Cancer man not only understands how you think and feel, but thinks and feels the same way. You could even say that he is fluent in female. He understands your emotions, respects your healing process, and takes your moods seriously.
Generally they don’t. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Cancer men do or don’t. Individuals get offended by general statements that don’t apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:
Secretive – Cancer men have a hard time just spitting it out and telling you what’s wrong because they never want to be the bad guy they’ve made themselves out to be in their own heads. Because of this, they also have a hard time admitting when they’re done with the relationship, and they are often caught cheating because they didn’t have the heart say it was over and they found someone else. Though on a good note, being so secretive is part of what keeps the mystery alive for most women involved with Cancer men. She can never be sure what he’ll be up to next. He might just be hunting down the ultimate Valentine’s day gift for her.
We have a dedicated section for Cancer man gifts with examples of the types of gifts which Cancer men enjoy within various categories from naughty to practical, including reader submitted suggestions.
The simplest answer is – yes. You can trust your Cancer man. He does confuse privacy with dishonesty from time to time, and has the excessive need to protect himself from the outer world by keeping secrets, but when he decides to let someone into his world, he will share almost everything with that person. If he does tell a lie, it will usually be about a small thing that could benefit them both. A typical Cancer lie usually involves a secret savings account. Other than that, he is not prone to adultery, the chase of young new partners, or in a desperate need for a constant change of scenery.
If the relationship leads to marriage, be a wife in whom he has absolute trust. Make your home a safe, cozy haven from the outside world, filled with sentimental mementos, works of art, and comfortable yet stylish furniture. Pamper him with candlelit dinners, bubble baths, and massages, and compliment him often. Your emotional support and approval will be very important to your Cancerian husband.
I totally enjoyed reading your message about Cancer men. The cancer man I’m dating seems ‘fits that exact mould.’ As a Leo woman I found myself wanting more and more of him, that is his friendship, his warmth. I don’t know where this is going to end up but I’m all in. Thanks for sharing all about Cancer men.
He is soft, loving, considerate, and nurturing to those he cares deeply for – but always remember that those born under the sign of the Crab have a hard shell to protect their vulnerable underbelly, and pincers to protect themselves when they feel attacked.
Stay within sight. Oftentimes, real attraction is not instantaneous with a Cancer man. You will need to enter within his field of vision on a fairly regular basis before he comes to appreciate your presence there.
I’m a Libra and I think I just lost my cancer man due to being so insecure and stupid I really love him and I didn’t believe you was in love with me but he is and I’m going crazy cuz he won’t talk to me
Never confess your feelings directly. Dealing with a Cancer man can be incredibly complex and may test your patience. As someone who likes to assume the traditional male role in a relationship, he will probably want to confess his feelings first and may find you less attractive if you jump first. On the other hand, you have to make your feelings so obviously clear to him that he has very little reason to doubt your attraction to him.
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.
If you’re able to pick up on other peoples emotions this is a wonderful, caring and warm sign, and everything you’ve read about them being nurturing and supportive is true. Possibly the most perfect partner you could wish for. If you aren’t sensitive enough, or can’t be bothered to nurture him at appropriate times, then your perfect Cancer lover may become increasingly distant and argumentative as your tally of neglect grows.
Should arguments occur, Cancer men will engage in “makeup sex” however, there are limits. Example, don’t look to the bedroom for emotional healing if you cheat on a Cancer guy. He’s not going to go for it.
Ask him to help you organize your space. If you do have a cluttered area, tell him about it before he finds out on his own by asking him to help you organize it. The appeal of this petition is three-fold: you’ll make him feel needed, you’ll appeal to his natural love of organization, and you’ll demonstrate a willingness to become less messy and more organized yourself.
This is a man with the Sun in a sign of the heart, love from our mother, our family and our inner feeling of gratitude. Because of this, he may seem weak, or something like a forced opposite of weak, and it is important to realize how hard it can be to be a man with an accented sensitive side. Although civilization is on its way to accept all sorts of human natures, especially the emotional one, it always seems judged by potential partners or wildly misread in general. Cancer always has a family issue to resolve and accept, positive or negative, and it is always best to have a peek into his relationship with his mother in order to understand him better. When he is well raised with a stable sense of security, this is a man anyone who is after a quiet family life would want.
Talk about his family in a positive way. Invite him to talk about his own family and connect other topics of conversation back to his family as often as possible. Always do so in a positive light, though, and avoid anything that could sound like an insult toward those he loves.
The only exception might be products related to home. Because of their homebody persona, they like to live in safe, restorative and comfortable environments. Spending money on furniture and appliances, even if they cost a ton, are just fine by this sign.
