Cancer Man Compatibility
The Cancer man is known to be a romantic character who can have crazy mood swings at times. One moment he may want something and the next second his bored and moves on to the next thing. However, he is generally respectful and very caring to his partner. Satisfying his partner and paying attention to her needs is top of his priority.
The Cancer male is not the kind of guy who is merely interested in short flings and one night stands. He prefers to find a woman with whom he will spend the rest of his life with; someone who he can commit to and take care of. With this in mind, Cancer men can be quite reserved and shy at the start of a relationship. This will also lead him to taking a long time to open up to his future partner as well as sleeping with her.
Romantic and devoted, he takes relationships and his partner seriously, and once settled with a mate he enjoys the home and everything associated with it. Cancer men are also often exceptionally friendly and love to help others and feel needed. That man at your office who offers hugs when you’re feeling down is probably a Cancer... (as a side note, this can be construed as flirting, often where it isn’t intended)
If you’re able to pick up on other peoples emotions this is a wonderful, caring and warm sign, and everything you’ve read about them being nurturing and supportive is true. Possibly the most perfect partner you could wish for. If you aren’t sensitive enough, or can’t be bothered to nurture him at appropriate times, then your perfect Cancer lover may become increasingly distant and argumentative as your tally of neglect grows.
Due to the above in the long term this is an all or nothing man. He often does better with a strong but caring partner, rather than an ultra-sensitive one. This is a man who sometimes needs a partner to tell him to shut up and just kiss him. Debating, analyzing, justifying moods, behavior etc may get the job done eventually, but it’s very counter productive.
Cancer Man with other Zodiac Signs
Cancer-Man and Aries-Woman - They have opposite personalities, and in this case that’s not a good thing. The Ram is sporadic and spontaneous, while the Crab is thoughtful and prefers to take his time. Aries is outgoing and adventurous and would feel that Cancer is far too controlling and clinging. Another problem is the ram’s temper, it’s just too much for gentle Cancer.
Cancer-Man and Taurus-Woman - Taurus woman and the Crab make a great match. Both signs are warm, loving, and loyal, and the Bull will supply the emotional and financial security that Cancer needs. The Crab and the Bull will work together as a team to achieve like-minded goals and have an excellent chance of creating a comfortable home and a loving family.
Cancer-Man and Gemini-Woman - The Gemini woman is far too logical for emotional Cancer, and the Twin’s independent nature would threaten the Crab’s need for stability. The Twins are like quicksilver – flighty and unpredictable, and this is often just too much for the Crab to take in. Also, Gemini is often somewhat of a flirt, and Cancer would have a hard time dealing with this.
Cancer-Man and Cancer-Woman - A Cancerian woman living in the same household with male Crab will usually be either blissful or terrible. They’ll understand each other’s emotional needs, and together they’ll make a warm and loving home. Problems arise when both partners are in one of their inherent moody stages at the same time, since neither will be willing or to cheer the other up.
Cancer-Man and Leo-Woman - The differences in Cancer and the Leo woman often work in their favor. The Crab loves showering his mate with praise and attention, and the Lion gobbles these up hungrily. The Cancerian man has no problem allowing his leonine partner all the time in the proverbial spotlight.
Cancer-Man and Virgo-Woman - This union is difficult but not impossible. A Virgo woman is much too practical to ever understand Cancer’s emotional approach to everything. The constant criticism from the Virgin will hurt the Crab’s tender feelings. On the positive side, both signs love their "creature comforts" and have a strong work ethic.
Cancer-Man and Libra-Woman - This usually is not a good match. The Libra woman is often a "party girl," while Cancer would much rather spend time at home. The Crab is a penny-pincher, too, while the Scales lady often has extravagant tastes. Libra loves positive energy, so she would have a real problem when the Crab was being, well, Crabby.
Cancer-Man and Scorpio-Woman - This is often a match made in Heaven! Although the Scorpio woman and Cancer man have very different personalities, they complement each other well. The jealous nature of the Scorpion would be soothed by the Crab’s total devotion, and both would seek to establish a harmonious family and home.
Cancer-Man and Sagittarius-Woman - The Archer and the Crab are seldom compatible. A Sagittarius woman is a reckless daredevil who thrives on adventure, while Cancer is a careful, cautious homebody. Also, many Archers are incredibly blunt, which will hurt the Crab’s feelings. Sagittarius will likely feel suffocated by Cancer’s emotional needs, and there will be lots of arguments over the archer’s spending habits.
Cancer-Man and Capricorn-Woman - This is an "iffy" relationship, at best. While Cancer will love the security and stability that the Capricorn woman will provide, the Crab will hate Capricorn’s seeming lack of emotion. The Goat will often think that the Crab isn’t ambitious enough for her. Practical Capricorn will also have a hard time with Cancer’s mood swings.
Cancer-Man and Aquarius-Woman - This is not a good match. Cancer is much too clingy for the aloof Aquarius woman, and the two share few of the same life goals. While the Crab is ruled by emotion, the Water-bearer is ruled by intellect. The Water-bearer’s need for adventure often frightens the cautious Crab, while she finds the Cancerian man dull and boring.
Cancer-Man and Pisces-Woman - This match is usually very good for both partners. Both signs are emotional and compassionate, so they’ll understand each other and there should be few clashes. The Pisces woman is generally upbeat, so The Fish will provide positive juxtaposition to Cancer’s moodiness and will often be able to predict her partner’s mood swings with amazing accuracy.
