Cancer As a Friend: Why You Need One

The sensitive Cancer friend is interesting and attractive but may have quite a few things to hide, just waiting to be revealed by those close.

Cancer Friendship

Cancer friends are known as the kindest and most generous individuals of the zodiac. They will make everyone feel good, just like home, dispel all inhibitions and uncertainties. You literally have nothing to worry about when around these natives.

They are reliable and trustworthy, empathetic and friendly. They can’t stand it when their friends meet a dead-end or when they’re in a bind. They give a helping hand to whoever needs it, but this also means that they are scornful and detest people who don’t appreciate it.

Top 5 reasons why everyone needs a Cancer friend:

  1. They are never going to betray your expectations and promises.
  2. They just want to socialize, to have fun, to find like-minded people.
  3. Cancers try to avoid beating around the bush.
  4. A Cancer’s intellectual depth is so profound you will need years, decades of investigation,
  5. Just remember that once you get a Cancer to like you, you have a comrade in arms for life.

Loyal friends

Friendships and partnerships are always based on devotion and loyalty, on a connection of trust established between two people. For the Cancers, this comes as the natural thing to do.

They are never going to betray others’ expectations, and neither are they going to trespass their own principles. Others feel good around these natives, knowing that they are understood.

They don’t approach people because of selfish reasons or because they want to achieve something. They do it out of kindness and curiosity, a natural interest in people. They just want to socialize, to have fun, to find like-minded people.

People just can’t stop from getting near to them because they are really too interesting and kind to overlook. As a Cancer, you are naturally empathetic and generous, you want to get to know people intimately, to share feelings and emotions, to inspire others to achieve their full potential.

One other thing about the Cancer natives is that they are the eternal wanderers in a cognitive way. They want to learn and accumulate knowledge, to take on the world’s deepest mysteries and to delve into the bottomless abysses of human possibility.

However, no matter how many efforts you put forward and how honest you are in relationships to other people, you still find it weird that a lot of your so-called friends just don’t reciprocate those feelings.

They don’t give back what they receive. The reason for this is because you, Cancer, don’t reveal yourself. You don’t put yourself out there completely.

Instead, you hide behind a mantle of mystery, behind the social mask. What lies within remains an enigma for everyone else, your privacy protected at all times.

It’s also something that your friends will feel uncomfortable with. If they’ve opened themselves, then how could you not?

Great companions

The reason why Cancerians protect themselves so fiercely is that they are very sensitive. Filled with vulnerabilities and weaknesses, these friends don’t have it easy when it comes to their relationships with other people. They might be hard on the outside, so expect to be refused the first couple of times.

However, when they do open up and accept you in their inner circle, you’d better thank the heavens and know that you’ve just hit gold.

This is what you’ve been waiting for, and it’s all worth it. They will always be there for you, to listen and offer advice, to sympathize and help you in any way they can.

As interested and intrigued they are in deep conversations and debates, don’t be angry or surprised when they’ll straight-up refuse an invitation to a social event or something of the sort. They do have their own likes and dislikes, principles and expectations.

They might have something else to do, responsibilities or obligations. Most of the times, that’s the reason why they refused to go out and have some fun.

Beware though, that they can be very possessive and observant of other people. If someone’s trying to trick them or their friends, woe on the offender!

The best friendship partner for a Cancer is, hands-down, the emotional Pisces. The sheer sensitivity that this aquatic native is capable of, it completely resonates with the overall perspective of the Cancer.

The two of them share in a life filled with joy and interesting conversations. The Crab will not be some inclined to hide now because the Pisces will build up trust pretty quickly.

Moreover, what the Pisces natives do that greatly gains the Cancer’s trust and appreciation is that they know when to take a step back and just leave them to play their own game. Everyone needs some solitude now and then, and it’s completely normal.

They can be very playful and dynamic, dabbling in pretty much anything that strikes their interest. Other people might believe them to be boring or tedious, but they are actually acting on their primary needs, on a hedonistic drive. Whatever suits their needs and what brings the most fun, that’s what they’ll do.

Cancers love for their friends to be honest, straightforward, to never beat around the bush. This means that once you said something, you’d better stick with it an accept it. Don’t turn around or they’ll believe you lied. Be punctual and serious as well.

A Cancer’s intellectual depth is so profound you will need years, decades of investigation, and you’ll still not discover everything.

They have many layers hidden from the rest of the world, and they aren’t willing to reveal most of them to just anyone. If you want to get to that level, make them feel comfortable and appreciated.

They will prefer to call you when there’s something that has to be said. Also, know that they will often hook up with you to share what’s been happening in their lives, and also inquire about yours. They expect something more complex than the simple answer one would give to a stranger.

The Cancer has many underlying faces that they use at the opportune moments. For one, they are very analytic and observant. They will be able to present you with the bare aspects of a situation, with different ideas coming from an expansive investigation.

Moreover, they are also very creative and imaginative. They have a pretty unique and visionary perspective on the world.

No one’s got anything on them when it comes to appreciating the world, the beauty and the mystery of the whole existence. Last but not least, just remember that once you get a Cancer to like you, you have a comrade in arms for life.
