Are you trying to lure a sexy Cancer man to you but you aren’t sure what you can possibly say to him via text message or social media? Cancer man texting isn’t too hard but here are some tactics you can surely try to learn what to text a Cancer man.

1) Stroke his ego!

Cancer men love attention and love to be complemented. That being said; you can text him something delicious. Tell him how handsome he looks in the outfit he’s wearing that day. Tell him his hair is particularly attractive today.

You can compliment him on just about anything you can think of from his looks, his car, his techniques, the way he talks, the way he smiles, etc. He’ll be very receptive to any or any of these types of adorations. It’ll make him wonder what you’re up to and why you’re so intriguing. Yes, these simple types of texts will get him thinking.

Surely a woman who is paying him so much homage must be worth a look or two. He may text you back with something equally as sweet or complimentary. If he’s not sure, then he may text you back with a simple “thanks”.

Don’t give up if he seems to not know what to do though. Sometimes it takes a few times. Don’t blow his phone up with text messages; however. It will make you seem a bit too eager and pushy.

He wants a woman that isn’t afraid to go after what she wants and that also knows to be somewhat classy and reserved. Be creative with your compliments if you can. Saying something like “I absolutely love that shirt you are wearing today, it looks amazing on you” will get his attention.

2) Be sweet and gentle

Aside from the obvious signs of giving him compliments; you can also take the “sweet girl” approach. Texting a Cancer man something that is absolutely endearing will show him how caring you are.

You can say something such as “Hi there, I hope you’re doing well today. I was thinking of you and thought I’d check in.” This lets him know he’s in your thoughts and he’ll be interested to know why which draws him in.

It will make him wonder why you find him special enough to text him and check on him. He may text you back telling you all about his day and could ask you more questions such as how your day is going and so forth.

Even something as simple as “You make me smile!” and send a cute emoticon to go with it. He’ll love it and think about how sweet you are. This type of adoration will definitely be met with interest. Cancer man texting is heart warming.

Unless he already has a girlfriend; these techniques should work fairly well. Any woman that pays attention to him and throws adoration around; he’ll wonder who they really are. Give it a try; you may get some really awesome results that could lead to a date or even later on.

3) Be flirty

Be aware that when you flirt; you need to keep it simple and not too racy. Cancer is a sexual guy for sure but he isn’t after a woman who will be trashy up front. Sending him dirty pics of yourself will only land you a sex buddy.

He may be inclined to have a fling or a friend with benefits thing with you. A serious relationship though? No. He wants a classy woman whom he can take home to his family.

Better yet, he wants a woman he can have a family with. He doesn’t see a trashy woman who is willing to give it up front as this type of woman. It may be an unfair assessment but it’s how he thinks.

He wants to marry a good woman who works hard for what she has in life rather than a stripper. He may drool over a stripper or porn star but he’s not going to marry one or take her home to the family. See the difference?

When you flirt; keep it clean and as creative as you can. Saying something like “Your smile makes me feel happy and optimistic” would definitely get you some attention. Complimenting him and letting him know that just his smile does things to you that makes you feel really happy. How could he not be interested in getting to know you more?

4) Confidence boosters

Cancer men are shy and unsure of a woman’s thoughts or intentions. If you let him know he’s someone you can see dating or getting to know better; he’ll be intrigued.

Many times he’ll be too afraid to ask someone out fearing that she may reject him or already be taken. Text him things that let him know you’re single and he’s your type.

Let him know you’re interested in getting together and getting to know each other a little better. In fact; you can say something similar to this in a text. You can say “You are really interesting and I’d really like to get to know you better”.

If he already knows what you look like and you’ve talked before in passing; this may spark some interest in him. Naturally, if he’s already sort of given you some sort of sign he likes you but hasn’t made a move; this will get him moving.

He will for sure bust a move after you’ve texted him and basically let him know that if he is interested; you’re ready and available to get together and talk more. He will feel confident enough to pursue you at this point.

Many women wonder if he’s one that does pursue or if she has to go after him. Cancer men need a bit of a nudge to get them out of their own heads or shyness. So taking initiative will get his attention.

  1. Well ….after may last breakup I was really broken. I thought that there is no one who can take me to himself. So..i leave it to my destiny. After 3 years i was still single and i almost forgot about my ex. Oneday i found a messenger grupe name singles. So i joined there and there i found my cancer man. But at first he and I never thought that we will fall for each other.whatever he was moody and that was a challenge for me . But I always asked him for suggestions in study or i talked him like his advices I really appreciate. But oneday a bad guy was sending me therats so i imidiatly text him and ask him for help . He helped me and it was really true that at that time i was texting i was crying. As saggittarius i never cried to someone like him . But when that happens i thought am i in love with him??
    Well after that incident i said him that i feel safe when i was with you and i think that make him thinking me special for him. There our texting conversation starts . And next day it was he who text me first and i happly accept him .we chat a long time and every time when he says something i appreciate that . And i complement him in the simplest way like he feel that it was really from my heart and it wasn’t a fake complementary.

    I always make him smile . And even now he says you make me always smile . My funniest jokes and odd but cute questions that he always loves.
    So oneday he prpsed me ?
    But i never said him that i like him or other. If you say that i flirt? Then no . I never flirt with him if i do then it will be really simple. In our relationship i act like i am a simple caring girl who want a good life and want to love her pertner always. That’s it .???
    So after 12 days of his proposal
    I sayed him i love you and i rally feel it . And now our relationship is really going very well and he promised me that i will be the only girl who he marry . And in messenger he set my nickname to dream queen ??

    I am really happy to have someone like him. And do you know that he proposed me in textings without seeing me !!!
    At first i thought he will not last long with me but now we feel that we ar special to each other ???.

    1. Hi Malini!

      I am so very happy to hear that things are going so well with your Cancer man. That is fantastic. Thank you for sharing your story with me and all the other readers. This is proof that there are good Cancer men out there. I hope everything works out for you for the long haul sweetheart!

  2. I’ve been chatting with this Cancer man for about 3 weeks now. He was very sweet and caring when we i first started texting him. We met through a dating app. He was very attractive so I took initiative and messaged him back after he had messaged me first. A week after chatting and what not he asked me if I wanted to hang out and I agreed. Me being a Pisces female I am a shy reserved person. But I tend to be chatty once I feel comfortable.. Our first time meeting was nice! He was very confident and sweet, no nervous at all like I was! Haha. He took me out to eat and we got to know each other. After that was done we went bowling but that didn’t work out because the place was packed and everyone was occupying the lanes. So we settled for video games haha.. all in all it was fun. He would always ask me what I wanted to do? This is my first time ever really going out with a Cancer guy, He makes me get out of my shell and to just do it lol.. he’s very sweet and texts me every day. I like that about him. I can see that we share a connection and have similar stuff in common. I’m glad I’ve got to know him and meet him. It’s still a little early to determine what we are but I’m happy things are moving slow and not too fast.
