Cancer man back

You probably have only nice memories about your Cancer ex because he was always the one fixing things for you when you needed some help. This man is always looking to be the knight in shining armor for a lady, no matter what she may need him for.

He doesn’t only want to feel needed, but also like a special person, the only one who can make something happen. If you were the one who suggested a breakup and now you want him back, be honest about the unique influence he had on your life and tell him no one can take his place.

Top 5 tips on how to get a Cancer man back:

  1. Be honest about what you have done wrong.
  2. Be patient because he will take his time.
  3. Find out things about him through shared friends.
  4. Appeal to his memories and make him nostalgic.
  5. Shout it back and forth why you belong together.

In case he was the Cancer man was the one who wanted to let go of your relationship, a reconciliation can be difficult, but not impossible. Talk about your great life but mention that there’s always something missing for you. Just say you feel an emptiness that no one can fill in. In case he sees you’re good at making your life better but he’s the one who can make it perfect, he’ll be tempted to get back together with you.

Be honest but kind to his feelings

If you want to get your Cancer ex back, make sure he knows how much you still love him. You should apologize for everything you may have done wrong when you were a couple over a glass of wine, by sending him a letter or by getting him something nice for his home.

In case nothing works, just start crying and say you’ll simply not make it without him around. Restoring the relationship with the Cancer man can be difficult because he’s very secretive and no one can guess what resentments he may be hiding.

He may seem detached and indifferent, when in fact, his heart would be filled with strong emotions for you. If you were the one who suggested a breakup, it may be very difficult to make things with him work again.

However, you could try and appeal to his tendency to idealize all the good memories you’ve made together.

Tell him you had an amazing time when you were a couple and he may want to give you a second chance.

In case you have cheated on this man, do everything in your power to win back his trust for you, but have patience because it may take a very long time for this to happen.

If he’s the one guilty of your breakup, getting him back won’t be that difficult. You can start by showing up to places where he’s at and talking to your common friends about how your life is going.

Mention to these people a thing or two on how you’re feeling about the breakup are because he’ll find out pretty soon.

Be serious when it comes to the connection you had with him as he must trust that you truly want to be his side for the rest of your lives.

Try and be mysterious all the time because the Cancer man keeps an interest in the woman who can make him discover new things about her, every single day.

Obviously, you’ll have to be all the time honest with him, but a little bit of mystery has never hurt anyone. Don’t try to make him too because this definitely won’t work.

He really appreciates a sincere woman and doesn’t like playing any mind games when it comes to love. It would be a good idea to get close to him not only personally, but also as far as other of his affairs are going.

Find out everything about what he does at work and offer you advice because he can really appreciate the interest you’re taking in his life.

Try and be the person most close to him, but have patience and work with tact because he can easily get hurt by any word, action or behavior.

Since he can be a little bit rude when crossed, you’d better control yourself around him. Don’t give in when seeing he’s being impolite.

He really appreciates a composed and reserved lady because he hates being involved in conflicts. This man will only get back with the woman who’s calm and who keeps some things for herself.

Take responsibility for your actions

It doesn’t matter why you and your Cancer man broke up, you need to own what happened and to admit you may have done something wrong when you two were together.

This will pave the way for a beautiful and new friendship between you and your ex. If he has been the one who suggested the breakup, the chances of you getting back together with him again are very small.

However, you should trust a strong connection of friendship between you two can turn into a relationship again. This man resembles the crab in the ocean a lot because he’s tough on the outside and very sweet on the inside.

Keep in mind he’s protecting himself when hiding under the hard shell that covers his heart. It’s easy to offend him because he has strong emotions.

He won’t trust you immediately, especially if you two have been together before and things haven’t ended nicely.

Appeal to his memories

While it’s difficult to believe it because he’s always keeping his feelings to himself, the Cancer man can be very sensitive. It’s possible for him to just put on a smile when breaking up with the love of his life.

As a husband, he’ll take his wife to the same place for their anniversary, every year, especially if this is where they had their first date together.

If you have broken up with him and want for things to be like they were before the separation, make sure you remind him of some of the good times you two had together.

He’s anyway filled with nostalgia, so he can surely see you in a good light when reminiscing what a great couple you used to be.

Show that you understand him

The Cancer man shows his affection by being nurturing and caring. He has this tendency to nag his lover and to be very criticizing, just like a mother is with her children.

Don’t be surprised if he tells you to wear a jacket when it’s cold outside because he can really worry about your well-being if he really cares about you.

This man wants to know his other half is doing okay and that no one could ever bother her. However, many are seeing him as cynical and dishonest when he’s trying to be caring.

If you’re unable to notice what he means when saying something, misunderstandings may appear between you two and many feelings can get hurt.

It’s in his nature to be smothering, so you can be sure he’s only showing his love when saying you should change something in your behavior if you want to advance at work.

Seeing you in trouble would only make him very unhappy. The more you get to show your skills and effectiveness, the better and more at peace he gets to feel.

The Cancer man wants you to achieve everything you want in life, so he won’t hesitate to advise you on how you could make things in your life happen to your advantage.

Get his family and friends on your side

Very family-oriented and nurturing, the Cancer man would never stand aside and just watch how his relatives or close friends are being trashed.

Many of his romantic relationships are ending because the woman in his life doesn’t get along well with his loved ones.

He can feel very hurt when his other half doesn’t like his family or even his home, which is a place of great importance for him.

In the zodiac, the Cancer sits in the fourth house of family and security, which means he’ll never allow anyone to mess with the stability in his family.

Therefore, you should honor the people most close to him and you’ll have all the chances to become one of them. After this, he’ll protect you no matter what.

Do you really want the same things?

As said before, the Cancer man is very focused on tradition and family matters. He wants to give the woman he loves a comfortable home and to make her feel secure with him.

His instinct for nesting is very present in him. This man is probably all the time dreaming of having a big family, so don’t expect him to give up his idea of a peaceful life with the ones he loves, for his career.

If you’re the modern type of woman who wants children later in life, you may argue with him more than often when you two are being a couple.

In case you want a family as soon as possible too, remind him of this if you have parted ways prematurely.
