Love is the ultimate mystery to the Cancer man and one that he is always trying to attain. However, his shyness and innate distrust of others make it difficult for the Cancerian to allow himself to fall in love. His guards are always up when it comes to his emotions, and few Cancer men fall in love at first sight, or even believe in the concept.
When he finds the partner of his dreams which may take awhile as the Crab is rather picky the Cancer man will throw himself into the romance of the situation, buying flowers, riding white horses, and slaying metaphorical dragons for them. The traditional side of this man means that he will shower his partner with thoughtful gifts, wine and dine them in the best restaurants, and try to grant their every wish.
He will take the garbage out, fix that wobbly shelf, navigate on road trips, and kill bugs for his partner, and most important of all he will do it all without being asked. His loyalty and keen attention to the needs and wants of his lover make the Crab one of the best partners of the zodiac.
Governed by Water, the diffident, quiet Cancer man is a surprisingly ardent and passionate lover behind bedroom doors. His incredible intuition for others’ thoughts and feelings translates into a sensitive, skilful lover. He is sensual and loves the effects of light on rippling water. Romance and sex go together for the Cancer man. Draw a warm bath, scatter some rose petals, and light a few candles your Cancer lover will appreciate the effort. Warm and imaginative, the Cancer man is very good at pleasing their partners.
In relationships, a Cancer man requires tenderness and reassurance, or else he might swim away from you, disappointed, hurt, and vowing never to trust another again. His own devotion to a partner is unquestionable and he will expect the same in return. Infidelities are never tolerated by the Cancer man, and he would sooner leave a relationship than try to swallow his hurt feelings and work towards a resolution.
He is generally considered most compatible with Pisces, Scorpio, Virgo, and Taurus.
