Are you the woman that can start the Cancer man’s fire and keep it going? To win the heart of a Cancer man, it takes a special kind of lady. It’s a difficult task to figure out what makes him run to you like a knight in shining armor, but it’s worthwhile.

I have some things for you to read that just might help you figure things out. You will learn about his signals, which may help you decide what a Cancer man wants in a woman.

Cancer Man Likes And Dislikes In A Woman

If you are wondering what a Cancer man looks for in a woman, let me tell you that when a Cancer man gets involved with a woman, he’s sensitive to her needs and desires. He will seemingly know what she requires without her having to say very much at all.

There are many things a Cancer likes and dislikes in a woman, but above all, he is seeking security in a partnership; therefore, he wants a woman who is going to pledge her undying love to him. He wants dedication and loyalty to the woman he’s going to settle down with.

He doesn’t mind his woman being independent and having her own career. However, he will want her to still play a part in the home and in the family. This is the type of guy who doesn’t mind being a house husband or stay-at-home dad.

When he meets a woman who loves to cook and is great at it, he’ll be smitten. A woman who can do it all will turn him on like no other. Again, he will share the responsibility with the right woman.

Be classy; show your adoration and affection for him often. Be the woman he needs, and let him know that you’ll always be there for him. When he feels totally comfortable with you, you can make it last.

Here are the core things a Cancer man likes and dislikes in a woman.

What Is The Cancer Man Ideal Woman?

The Cancer man wants a woman that is independent, strong, and can also take care of home. If he could have it, he’d gladly take a woman who could do it all. What I mean by all is cooking, cleaning, holding down a career, and also caring for the future children they will have together.

This is a Cancer man dream woman. He wants to marry the ultimate superwoman. Knowing that this type of woman is rare or doesn’t exist, he’ll be looking for a woman who closely resembles this type. He would also like to have a woman who will meet his sexual desires or demands as well.

Most of all, he wants to feel safe and secure in the relationship he has in order to take it to the next level of marriage. He wants to build a happy home and family for the future.

He wants to have a tight-knit bond with the woman he plans to make his queen. This means spending a great deal of time together and building trust between him and his lady love.

He wants a woman who will be there for him always, whether they are having a wonderful time or a hard time. He needs to know that she’s not going to just take off when things are not ideal.

What Do Cancer Men Like In A Woman? A List Of Traits That Make Him Weak In The Knees

1. Cancer Man Adores A Sincere Woman With Integrity

The Cancer man is looking for a woman who will not only become his partner but also his wife someday and possibly the mother of his future children (or current children).

He’s going to want a woman who has her heart in the right place, is sincere in her actions as well as words, and someone who lives a morally clean life. I dare say that he’s looking for an almost “Saintly” type of woman.

He may be a little unrealistic but he does seem to want to find a woman who has it all. He’ll have to learn that everyone is flawed. Otherwise, be a really good woman with a good heart and he’ll be into it.

2. Cancer Likes A Trustworthy Woman

Cancer man finds it hard to trust someone right out of the gate which is why it’s so important for him to take his time and not rush things. He has to learn who a woman is, what she wants, and if it’s in alignment with him.

Cancer needs to know he can trust the woman he wants to fall in love with or even build a life with. He loves being in love and sometimes falls victim when he doesn’t see the bigger picture. He’s very sensitive and vulnerable.

If you’re a woman looking to be with a Cancer man, you need to show him that he can rely on you and trust you with his life. It will take some time to build it but once you do, he’ll open up to you and that sets the foundation of a strong bond.

3. He Is Thrilled With Financially Independent Woman

You can be a total sweetheart and willing to please the Cancer man but if you’re jobless, he may not seriously consider you as a potential partner for his future. Not to say there aren’t exceptions but, he wants a woman who can earn her own.

While he loves to help his lady love, he will not want her to lean on him for finances. He will gladly take care of her if she’s taking care of herself. So when it comes to dates, it’s best to offer to pay for your own or at least half the bill.

If you move in together, find a system where you two half the bills or you pay a decent portion of them, at least. He may not want you to pay that much but you offering will let him know that you are sincere.

It’s important for him to know that you’re not using him and not with him for the finances that he possesses. He doesn’t like gold diggers and will drop them as quickly as they came to him. These are strong things a Cancer man likes in a woman.

4. Cancer Man Desires A Woman With Manners

This guy is a traditional fellow. He wants a woman who looks classy and acts classy. She chooses what to wear to attract a Cancer man. Say please, thank you, and know when to be graceful. He’ll appreciate it greatly.

He’s one that will open doors, pull out chairs for you, and be a gentleman. He will be more so if you are acting like a proper lady. He doesn’t mind you being a bit wild in the bedroom but anywhere else, he prefers a classic woman.

This will really hold true when he takes you to meet his friends and/or his family. He wants them to see you as someone that will be quite fitting for you and will fit in with their circle as well.

5. Cancer Man Wants A Woman Who Can Connect With Him Emotionally

The Cancer man is emotionally driven as he’s a water sign. This means he flows and so he needs a woman who can understand where he is coming from and be able to empathize with him as he empathizes with so many.

Don’t be afraid to tell him how you feel about anything. I wouldn’t say nagging is a good idea but if you have some strong feelings about stuff then by all means let him know.

He wants you to be totally honest and open with him. Hiding things from him or telling him there is nothing wrong when clearly there is, will make him feel uncomfortable or make him feel you don’t trust him.

Naturally if he feels you cannot trust him then he may lose the comfort he was starting to feel with you and then he won’t trust you either. It can go both ways so be very careful with this sensitive soul.

Cancer Man Dislikes — 5 Things That Turn Him Off

Again, it’s just as important to know what he doesn’t like so that you don’t make any big mistakes with him. Cancer man dislikes things in women that some other men find no big deal.

Check out the list and make sure you’re not making any of these errors with your Cancer guy.

1. He Dislikes A Woman Who Is Aloof

A Cancer man wants a woman who is warm and sincere, not a woman who is cold and callous. He needs someone he feels a deep connection with. If you’re a woman who doesn’t easily show emotion, this could be a problem.

This crabby guy wants a woman who will understand him, empathize with him and give him the care he requires. He will be absolutely willing to return the favor if you give it to him first.

This is often why Air signs don’t do well with Cancer man. Detachment is a turn off for the Cancer guy. He’s super sensitive and wants to be with someone who feels him with great capacity. He seeks love and affection.

2. He Doesn’t Like Her To Be Too Flashy

The Cancer man tries very hard to be humble. He’s a humanitarian and this means that he cares very deeply about humanity. He seeks a woman who is similar to him. He doesn’t much care for women that are too “out there”.

Cancers aren’t into women that wear lots of makeup or dress trashy. Also, he doesn’t like loud women or women who want to be seen desperately by everyone. He isn’t one for a woman who is an “attention” seeker.

If you’re wearing the latest fashions, you’ll get kudos from him but only if they are classy and tasteful. If they reveal too much of your skin or give little to the imagination he will be turned off.

3. Cancer Man Dislikes Woman Who Often Gets Upset 

The Cancer man is emotional enough on his own. He doesn’t need any help nor does he need any kindling. He needs a woman who has a cool head, can keep calm, and yet show him support.

If you’re the type that is a quickly lit fuse, you better think again. He isn’t one to deal with intense emotions like this and will have a hard time finding common ground with you.

He has to have someone that will talk to him when she’s calm and know when the right time is for him. Yes, he’s asking for a lot. However, he also knows what he needs. Either you’re what he’s looking for or you aren’t.

4. Cancer Man Dislikes Head Games

The Cancer man’s likes and dislikes are many, but he doesn’t like to play head games. He finds it totally unnecessary and won’t appreciate a woman doing this with or to him. Be straightforward with him, don’t sugarcoat; just hit him with the truth!

Always tell him the truth and let him know where you stand. He’ll better respect you for doing this than by being passive-aggressive. I’m not saying you should yell at or attack him, but in a calm way, approach him with what you need to say.

5. Cancer Man Doesn’t Like Being Lied To

This really rather goes with the last number. Be honest and do not lie to him. If you do, he’ll find out and either cast you out or use it against you at some point. Be very careful. He will see through you if you are not careful. 

Remember, a Cancer man is a stickler for being loyal, and being deceitful will put you in the category of being disloyal. If you feel you cannot be loyal to him, you may want to choose another partner. It will be hard to win him back if you’ve done him a disservice in some way.

What Body Type Does A Cancer Man Like?

Believe it or not, these guys can be sticklers for good hygiene. You’ll want to make sure you have fresh breath and a good scent (a good perfume or body spray if you can wear it). Cancer men like a woman who is physically fit but has strong inner thighs and curves. They cannot resist that body type.

They love you and need to have all of their senses moved by you. Maintaining an orderly living environment will show him that you know how to be clean, and he won’t have to worry about surprise stenches or gross old food stuck under the sofa.

The most important thing to remember is that a Cancer man loves a woman with an open heart who is confident and self-assured. If you keep in mind some of these main characteristics, you are sure to ride far off into the sunset with your Cancer knight.

What A Cancer Man Wants In A Woman

A Woman Who Takes Care Of Herself

When it comes to the Cancer man, he wants a woman who is warm, inviting, and will take great care of him as well as herself. In the tarot cards, he’s looking for the Empress – the woman who takes care of everyone.

He wants a woman who can cook, clean, make her own money, and yet still find time to spend with him. He also wants her time as often as possible when he’s falling in love.

Again, he may be a little unrealistic at times but hey, if you’re a woman who can do it all then bless you. You’re someone he wants to be with and build a future with. Go for it!

You Need To Look Amazing To Get His Attention

It doesn’t matter if you’re going to a movie, dancing, or a sporting event, you should always look fabulous. Make sure your hair is neat and clean, wear light yet classy makeup, and your clothes should be classy/sexy.

Whether you are wearing jeans, shorts, or a dress, you should look your very best. He will come to rather expect this as one of the reasons he likely got into you was the fact that you were so physically appealing to his senses.

You can dress sexy but make sure that you’re not looking trashy. Even when you wear jeans and a t-shirt, they should look nice and complement each other. If you look like a hot mess, he will think you aren’t willing to put the effort in for him.

Show him how absolutely put together you are and are willing to make yourself look like a runway model in order for him to enjoy you. Not to say this is all he’s going for. He certainly wants you to be beautiful on the inside as well.

Don’t Be Dependent On Him

While the Cancer man wants a woman who will become his partner, wife, and mother to his future (or current) children; he doesn’t want you to NEED him on a financial level.

He’s one that will take care of you but you must be taking care of business as well as taking care of yourself at the same time. Basically he wants to see that you’re doing what you need to and not just waiting on him to give you handouts.

He doesn’t like gold digger type women. Stand on your own two feet, be independent, and show him that you can darn well take care of yourself without his help.

By doing this, he will admire you and will be inspired by you. He’ll fall harder for you knowing you don’t actually need him on this deep level. He wants to be needed in other ways.

He wants you to ask him for advice, his opinion, or his help with doing things that you can mostly do on your own but you require his assistance. He’ll appreciate this much more about you.

Be classy, show your adoration and affection for him often. Be the woman he needs and let him know that you’ll always be there for him. When he feels totally comfortable with you then you can make it last.

  1. I think my journey with my cancer guy has finally come to an end. I’m pretty much this woman you call “superwoman”. I’ve given him everything I got. I have shown him the woman I really am. And still, after seven years he is still not ready to be in a relationship with me. We’ve had a lot of amazing time together, he trusts me with everything he got, except his true feelings for me. I know he loves me. I know we are soulmates. But something is keeping him from giving his heart to me completely and I can’t figure out what it is. And I think seven years is long enough. It hurts like hell, but I have to give up on him. I’ve done everything I can. I’ve been reading your guides for years now and I’m sure I would be every cancer guys dream girl. That’s just not enough for the one I love more than anyone ever.
