Trust isn’t easy these days. In the modern world of casual dating, your heart has likely been broken more than once, leading to a feeling of not being able to fully rely on anyone. However, without trust, you can’t fall in love completely or experience all the joys of a happy relationship. How do you know if you can trust the Cancer guy you’ve been seeing? Here are a few tell-tale signs…
Struggling to trust a Cancer guy? Do you feel like you’re falling hard for him, but want to hold back to make sure he’s going to be the right one?
You’re not alone. In my experience as a relationship astrologer, so many woman – and men – battle with overcoming betrayal. It takes a great deal of time. My best advice is to build a sense of intimacy between you, slowly, and be as honest and open as you possibly can.
Are Cancers known to be untrustworthy? You’ll be happy to know he definitely doesn’t fall under the category of a sneaky kind of guy. In fact, Cancer men are amongst the most sensitive and easily hurt zodiac signs.
This can cause them to come across as cold and defensive. Strange right? The most sensitive sign coming across as the least caring? It’s simply a protective mechanism. The truth is, Cancers have more trust issues than you – they just hide it better.
But, if you are still in doubt, here are some signs that he can is reliable, and that he is serious about you –
7 Ways to Tell If You Can Trust a Cancer Man
1. He Introduces You to His Family – Especially His Mom
If a Cancer man introduces you to his family, you can rest assured that he is very serious about you. Family is everything to a Cancer man, and he will never share his close circle with you if he was untrustworthy.
This is especially true when it comes to his mother, who is the center of his world, for better or worse. When he decides to have the two of you meet, you can pretty much assume he wants to settle down with you! Yes, it’s as real as that! So put those worries to rest, and let yourself trust him!
2. He Shares His Past with You
Cancer men are very much defined by their past. More so than most signs, who might agree that their pasts are important, but not absolutely essential to their sense of identity.
When a Cancer man shares his past with you – the good, the bad, and the ugly – he is showing you that he trusts you to hold his emotional baggage. And if he is trusting you in this way, it’s important to see that he’s willing to bring you into his heart.
Reciprocate by opening up in return – it will build a bond of trust and intimacy.
3. He Brings You into His Home
Cancer is symbolized by the crab – and crabs carry their homes on their backs, that’s how important they are to a Cancer! A crab’s home is their safe place, their anchor, their peace, their sanctuary. They don’t easily let people come in and shake that up.
If you have your Cancer fella inviting you over for a home cooked dinner at is home, you’d better realize that he is completely into you, and can most likely be trusted. Especially if it happens regularly.
So, try to drop the suspicion and see that he really is beginning to care about you and see you as an important part of his life.
4. He Reaches Out to You
If a Cancer man reaches out to you in any way, asking for your help, insight, support or opinion, he’s being really, really vulnerable to you. And vulnerability always breeds trust, no matter which way you look at it!
Being on the receiving end of his need is touching, special, and sweet. You can do the same, by asking him for his help and support when you need it.
It may be in the smallest of ways, such as asking for advice on a family matter, or simply asking to meet for a drink and a chat because you’ve had a bad day.
Don’t be shy opening up to these sensitive signs. It will encourage them to do just the same!
5. He Opens Up His Feelings to You
As a water sign, Cancer is known as the most sensitive person in the zodiac, aside from Scorpio and Pisces. However, he is also very protective of his feelings, and doesn’t share them with just anybody!
When he shares his feelings with you, no matter how big or small, he really is trusting you with his heart. And if he’s putting his trust in you, you can rest assured that you can reciprocate that trust. Share you own feelings, and see what a giddy ride that can be!
6. He’s Clinging to You
Look, clinginess is not that attractive, but a little can be sweet, right? Especially when you’re building a bond of connection and trust between the two of you.
If you find him holding onto you physically when you’re together, cuddling you to death and finding it hard to separate, you can be sure that he’s showing you a non-verbal sign of trust and love.
Of course, there are other ways of being “clingy,” such as reaching out to you via text or calling you, chatting to you often and wanting to spend time with you.
So, go on- you know you want to!

7. Look at His Past Relationships
If you’re wondering whether or not he’s trustworthy, the best way you can tell is how his last relationships ended. Was there any sort of betrayal? Are they friends, or not speaking to each other? Usually, it’s a good sign if they are still on speaking terms unless, of course, she betrayed him.
In this case, he will probably never want to speak to her again and will struggle to trust you, and may even project trust issues onto you, such as being suspicious of your intentions, for example.
Try your best, in an intimate moment, to explore what happened in his past. The past is usually a topic that he relishes talking about, so it shouldn’t be too tough to get him to spill!
Share your past too, so that he can understand what happened to make you feel like you can’t fully open up. Conversations like this bring you so much closer, and help you both to understand where the other is coming from.
In conclusion, ladies, Cancer men aren’t usually the types to go out and hurt you or betray you. It takes very rare circumstances for them to let you down, so don’t be scared to open up your heart to him. He’s very often one of the good guys out there!
