Dating a Cancer and Relationships

Cancer In Relationships


Love and romance are ranked high on Cancer’s list. And while they may appear cool on the outside, they are true romantics on the inside. Others may find them as mysteriously sexy because of their changeable natures. Their feelings run deeply and in a relationship they look for security, honesty, and fidelity. Once they feel betrayed they become deeply wounded and may take longer to bounce back. Over time though, they learn how to protect themselves. Because of their love for home and family, they make very good long term partners, as long as you can cope with their emotional moodiness.

How To Attract A Cancer


Cancers are not overly direct so you must be. You must make them aware of your feelings if you are to establish a relationship with them. Their biggest fear is rejection, and if you take the risk, they don’t need to worry about it. If you want a short lived relationship with them, tell them. You don’t want them thinking there is something more there when there isn’t. Hurting them can really crush their spirit.

You must build trust with them to bring them closer to you. Be sure you praise them but not overly so because they can sense when this is being done to them. You need to be sincere toward them. Cancer loves giving advice so share what issues you have with them. They love to help people out and provide advice.

These people love the culture and extravagant experiences – bring them to a play, museum or fancy restaurant. Never force them to undertake a relationship or make hasty decisions. They’ll start to shy from you. Be patient, as that is the key to winning them over. Be physical because they love the affection. Bear in mind that Cancer is overly cautious. Allow time to pass and allow things to progress slowly. Before you know it, you’ll have a fulfilling, loving relationship.
