Cancer men, with their empathetic nature and creative brilliance, are easy to fall for. Here’s how to turn your colleague into a lover!
Let’s face it, Cancer men are some of the loveliest guys you’ll ever meet. Ruled by the Moon, these men are sensitive, emotional and caring, and very in touch with their feminine side. They’re the ones who always ask you how your day is going and remember your birthday.
What’s not to love?
If your heart is melting for a Cancer man, and you want to be way more than just co-workers, there are some astrological tips and tricks to help you do just that! Each Zodiac sign has particular likes and dislikes that you can tap into, and it’ll seem like magic to him when you just happen to know all his sweet spots!
In no time at all, you’ll no longer just be making eyes at him—you’ll be attached at the hip! Here’s how.
7 Ways to Go From Co-Workers to Lovers With a Cancer Man
1. Bring Him a Home-Cooked Meal
There’s nothing that beats a home-cooked meal when it comes to wooing a Cancer man! The way to this man’s heart is very often through food, as the old cliché goes.
Even better is when it’s one of those fuss-free comfort foods that have a history of tradition. Think along the lines of apple pie, chicken casserole, or your signature lasagna.
He doesn’t want the kind of food he can’t pronounce or identify. And his sweet tooth is just as strong as his love of savory food! If you don’t want to be too obvious, you can bake some cookies for the whole office—and go out of your way to offer him one.
Yes, this sounds very “old school,” but it’s a sweet and simple trick that works. His heart will be yours in no time at all!
2. Talk About Your Family
If you happen to be around him before a meeting or at the lunch table, drop some casual questions about his family, or share a story about yours. Cancer men tend to adore their mothers and will be very attracted to women who are close to their families, too.
Another way you can engage him is to notice a photo on his desk (Cancer men very often have pictures at work) and ask him about who it is. Once he gets started on his favorite topic, there really is no stopping him!
3. Confide in Him
Cancer is a water sign, so their natural way is to be empathetic and intuitive. He loves hearing your problems and secrets, and what’s more, he really understands them. The more he learns about you, the greater the emotional connection will be.
And of course, the greater the emotional connection, the more intimacy you can create between the two of you. It’s that simple!
4. Show Him That You Need Him
There’s nothing a Cancer thrives on more than feeling essential. These men feel their very best when they come to the rescue, when they can combine their empathy and skills and put them to work!
How do you show him that you need him? Well, you can ask him for help on a project or for his insight on a problem. You may even ask him for help on how to deal with a fellow colleague or share a small personal problem you’re dealing with.
Neediness is never unattractive to the Cancer man. This is one guy who you can really show your tender side to and never be afraid of being rejected or judged. The more you show your need for him, the closer he comes to wanting you. And the next thing you know, you’re falling in love!
5. Be Thoughtful
Making a great cup of tea or coffee never goes unappreciated with the Cancer man!
You don’t have to be overt about it, either. You can simply make yourself a cup and ask him if he would like one. Think casual. The same applies for grabbing him staples from the supply closet, offering to proofread his report, or mailing something for him on your way out.
And you don’t have to do it every day, either. You can simply do this every now and again, which will catch his attention as well as make him cared for and nurtured.
Sometimes, it’s the simple things in life that are the most effective!
6. Chat Him Up During a Full Moon
Did you know that the sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon? This makes Cancer men very susceptible to the Moon cycles. During a Full Moon, this man comes out, guns blazing! His usually introverted nature does a 180-degree turnaround. He can spend an entire night on the dancefloor!
What you can do is take advantage of this time by keeping an eye on the Moon cycles. When the Moon is full, chat him up or invite him out for a drink. His feelings are running high, and he’s more willing than usual to let loose. He’s also a whole lot more fun!

7. Help Him
Cancer men often spend a huge amount of time helping everyone in the world who needs them. This can often mean that they’re drained, running out of energy, or even growing resentful. Sometimes, all they need is someone to look out for them as much as they do everyone else.
See if you can pick up some of the slack in his work life. You can offer to take on a project—or an aspect of it—to give him a break. Maybe you can swap a shift, put in a good word for him to the boss, or cover for him on a long lunch break.
These seemingly small things go a long way when it comes to going from mere co-workers to a full-fledged relationship.
