Why Set Your Heart On A Cancer Man?
The biggest “low maintenance” man in the zodiac.
He likes to clean, cook and take care of you.
Conquering A Cancer Man.
The first thing you need to know about protecting a Cancer man’s affections is this: you’ll probably have to do all the work.
The Cancer man is highly unlikely to take the first step, as he suffers from a deep fear of rejection.
So, you’ll probably need to work on those pickup lines!
At work, the Cancer man is easy to spot: he will be the one sitting at his tediously organized workstation, working hard, taking on responsibilities, and generally getting along with things.
Since the Cancer man likes to get work done and do it to the best of his abilities, you are likely to find him working late.
Even when everyone else has gone home, the Cancer man will still be there working avidly, proving himself to his employers.
This can provide a great opportunity for you to take action.
It’s no use letting him know how you feel about him or subtly suggesting that you find him attractive: his fear of rejection will keep him from seeing them as compliments; instead, he will perceive them as potential pitfalls, as opportunities to be rejected and humiliated.
No, if you want a Cancer man, chances are you’re going to have to come out and open up.
You might even need to draw what goes through your head for him!
Despite all this, it is not difficult to please the Cancer man.
All Cancer men, whether they are mild examples or extreme cases of this type, love their family and, in particular, their mother.
If you demonstrate that you have a strong bond with your own mother, this will go down very well.
If you recently took your mom for a walk, shopping, or a show, remember to include this at the earliest opportunity.
The Cancer man can only love someone who adores his mother.
Extra points can also be scored if you ask about his mother.
There might even be a photograph of her on his desk; If so, be sure to point out the similarity between him and his mother – he’ll love you for it.
If you can force it without sounding too corny, mention how young his mother looks…
“I thought it was a picture of your sister!”
The Cancer man is very tactile and likes to be touched.
If you’re trying to get his attention, gently tap him on the arm, shoulder, or best of all, the back of your hand.
This is likely to make him immediately excited about you.
Make sure your hands are warm first!
Another big “in”, believe it or not, is housework!
The Cancer man is extremely well-tamed and proud of the house.
If you’ve just mentioned that you spent Sunday cleaning your house from top to bottom, tending the garden, or cooking a meal (“like Mom does”), you’ll see your eyes light up with joy.
In fact, chances are he spent Sunday doing something incredibly similar!
For the Cancer man, housework is not a chore, it is a leisure activity.
The Ideal Date With The Cancer Man
From the Cancer man’s point of view, the perfect date is one where he cooks for you.
He loves nothing more than cooking something in the kitchen and making you drool with pleasure.
Make sure you give advance notice of the types of foods you don’t or can’t eat, because he’ll be devastated if you’re less than excited by his cooking efforts.
If you’re looking to eat out, make sure you go somewhere where the food has that “homemade” appeal, somewhere he thinks he can deconstruct the meal into a recipe he can recreate later.
He will thank you for adding to his gastronomic knowledge.
If you’re not yet in the dating stage but want to invite the Cancer man to something he might enjoy, allowing you to speed things up into the dating stage, try an outdoor activity.
The Cancer man likes fresh air and exercise (but nothing too strenuous).
A walk through the woods or a beach will leave you feeling happy and refreshed.
That way, he might even ask you out !
What to Wear for the Cancer Man
Indigos and oranges are the Cancer man’s colors of choice, colors that look good enough to eat.
Likewise, with perfumes, choose something new and “edible”.
In terms of clothing styles, the Cancer man himself opts for conservative cuts, nothing too appealing, so it’s probably best to follow his lead in this regard.
What you wear is not as significant as where you got it from.
The Cancer man loves to shop.
In fact, shopping for clothes can be a very effective bonding exercise!
Gifts for the Cancer Man
Anything to do with cooking will score you points.
Anything he can share with his mom will earn him double points!
And since the Cancer man loves to shop, gift cards from his favorite store will not be seen as a thoughtless last-minute gift, but as a genuine benefit.
Keeping Your Cancer Man
The Cancer man is very loyal and hardly places any demands on his partner.
All you have to do is show him affection, appreciate the things he does for you, and show love and loyalty to your own family.
The only big obstacle is probably his mother.
If you get along with the mother, there will be no problems; In fact, it will cement your relationship to the point where it is virtually unbreakable.
However, if you and his mother are not in agreement, there will be problems.
Hopefully, these issues can be overcome by agreeing to disagree with your mother and keeping things sweet.
If not, your relationship with the Cancer man is likely to be very difficult.
What are you getting carried away?
Well, you’re going to have to share it with his mom… but you’ve probably guessed that by now!
The size and nature of this particular obstacle is, of course, entirely dependent on his mother.
In fact, it might not be a problem.
His mother’s astrological sign is likely to play a significant role, but that’s another matter!
The only thing you need to be careful with is criticism.
The Cancer man does not respond well to criticism, however well-meaning he may be.
In addition, he knows how to hold a grudge if he feels that he has been slighted in some way.
Don’t be too surprised if something critical you’ve said in passing is suddenly thrown in your face months or even years later!
You Might Find The Cancer Man Harder If You’re From…
… Libra, Capricorn, or Aries, and particularly challenging if you are a Sagittarius or Aquarius.
But don’t worry: true love conquers all!
The big do:
Let him know how much you love his mother.
The big don’t:
Don’t let him know how much your mother makes you mad with nerves.
