Just like any other individual, the Cancer man has his motivations, personality and unique character, but in his case, you might want to watch out for the added complexity. So obviously that makes it quite difficult to understand him at times, not to mention to read his feelings.
Top 10 signs a Cancer is into you
- He can be shy and fidgety around you.
- Becomes a lot easier to read and much more open.
- He helps you even with tasks you are ok with.
- He sends you romantic emails.
- He takes you for long walks.
- Tries to generate empathy between you two.
- He tries to spend all his time in your company.
- He surprises you with gifts and romantic dinners.
- He expresses his emotions freely.
- He has a sensible and romantic flirting style (see Cancer flirting style).
However, when there is something real going on, there are some telltale signs that he is into you, that stem from simple reactions of his.
For instance, when the Cancer man starts to fall in love, he tends to be over-protective of his lover, and he will try to take care of them in the strongest sense of the word.
It doesn’t matter at all that the other can handle the task, and it doesn’t mean that the Cancer sees them as incapable. That’s just his way of expressing his feelings of love and affection.
How to figure out if your Cancer likes you
When you’ll notice that the Cancer man is always around, trying his best to bond with you, obviously in an attempt to further deepen the relationship, it’s then that you should understand that he is far-gone in the romantic zone.
The Cancer wants to give his all, to have a definite and absolute experience with his partner, and while he is prepared to sacrifice anything and everything, he has the same expectations as well.
Security, stability, the prospect of a future with great potential, understanding, these are the main conditions or, better yet, the by-products of an effective relationship, from his point of view.
While a bit insecure and hesitant to make that one first step, he’ll eventually decide upon a course of action after some time, when he will have obviously observed and analyzed you thoroughly.
It’s quite obvious that this is a telltale sign of his interest, and if you notice this, it might be a good idea to show that you are open to flirting, as that would greatly increase his confidence.
Cancer men are very romantic with the person they like. Expect a bouquet of flowers, a romantic dinner, uncommon and profound compliments. Try to be open and appreciate of these little things, because a rejection would make them back-up instantly.
Just try picturing these men as you would a parent taking care of their children, doting on them, teaching them what is right and wrong, the constant nagging, and ultimately, the deep love and affection implicated.
This is exactly how they behave towards their partners, with a very touchy and tender attitude. He is someone very emotional, who would rather have no relationship at all, if he can’t fully express his feelings in the present one.
Why would you have to repress those feelings with someone who should be the closest person to you? That’s counter-intuitive. And this man has abundant emotions to speak of, very profound as well.
Texting with your crush
In general, the Cancer man will always prefer to have a face-to-face discussion with you, whether it’s about your future together, the plans you have to make in order to have a stable situation, or just the day-to-day happenings.
They aren’t very keen on writing to you a huge block of text telling you that. If anything, they’d rather send you an email, that’s the most likely form their messages are going to take, immense novels where they’ll accurately describe everything, from their emotions and impressions, to the details of their waking up in the morning.
That’s why they prefer to tell you all of this in person, because they have a lot to say.
The Cancer man is someone who lives life at the edge of possibility, always experiencing the strongest and most intense feelings available.
He will surprise you with his profound thinking, and deep meditative states, where he will just talk endlessly about life’s purpose, and other philosophical subjects. It may be that you get a text or two summarizing their latest revelations. Be careful how you react because there is a fine balance before they feel offended.
Then, the next moment, they’re a puddle of goo in your arms, having an emotional meltdown, just waiting to bond with you on the most intimate of levels.
They are truly special individuals who deserve nothing but the best, and life with them will be like a streak on lighting in the sky, erratic, unpredictable, flashy, and electrically vivacious.
Is he falling in love?
This native needs to be fully aware of the implications that a relationship entails for him, before committing to anything more. He needs to know that nothing unpredictable will happen, that the other won’t just abandon him at the first sign of danger, and that there is a link of emotional empathy between the two of them.
Now, whether you can figure out if this native has something more in mind, more than just a friendly relationship, that’s all up to your abilities.
Though, it’s pretty clear when it happens, because, as we’ve said before, this man tends to act in very protective and paternal way towards those he loves.
What are the love implications of the fact that he is a Water sign? Not much, besides an endless capacity to empathize, immensely deep emotions and feelings, a pretty introverted and recluse-type personality, just to name a few aspects.
And yes, the Cancer man is one such native, which means that they will be shy, hesitant, and fidgety when around the person they love. That’s also a perfect way to tell that he is interested in you.
Just try meeting his eyes for a few second. He’ll immediately shift his gaze, blush right away, and slouch his shoulders, just because he isn’t confident enough.
Do your homework
Firstly, and quite weirdly so, just check if there is a full Moon outside before telling him that you have just wasted 500$ on that bag you told him about last Friday. Why is the Moon any relevant? Well, it seems that the Cancer man is pretty sensible to this stuff, and he will change his attitude according to the shift of the astrological celestial objects.
Don’t over-indulge yourself with spending money on everything you come across. Try to be a little practical and realistic, because the Cancer men follow more of a thrifty behavior.
He is definitely not one attracted to risk taking, and will instead try to act with as much caution and vigilance as possible.
You might want to avoid forgetting about the little things, the details that one might not notice at a first glance, because these things matter a lot for emotionally sensitive Cancer.
Express your appreciation and affection for him daily, and try to notice if he made a change to his own person.
Finally, don’t forget to be supportive and present in the moment for when he is in a dire situation.
This man needs emotional support, an anchor to hold him steady in the storms that the challenges of life unleash constantly. That’s what he desires the most, to have somebody who is there for him, a refuge from the harsh coldness of the outside world.
