Reverse Psychology On A Cancer Man — Will A Cancer Man Come Back After A Breakup?

There is something so special about a Cancer man and the sensitive nature of his soul. He is caring, gentle, and very intuitive. Because he is so sensitive, it can be tough for him to let go and move on after a breakup.

It can be confusing knowing what to expect from him because, on the one hand, he might be really hurt and struggle to move on from the difficult emotions he is going through.

But he also might miss you so much that he is willing to forgive everything and just take you back to be his partner again. Knowing if your Cancer man will come back after a breakup really depends on his emotions and how sensitive he feels after the breakup.

That being said, he might need some time and space from the relationship to figure out exactly what it is he is feeling. His emotions can be all over the place, which may lead both you and him to be confused about what he is really feeling.

It might take some time for him to figure out how he is feeling, so you need to be patient with him and remove any pressure as it might make him feel quite anxious and out of control.

How Long Does It Take For A Cancer Man To Come Back?

Cancer men do not forgive easily and even if they do; they will not trust easily again. If this is the case; it’s going to take time for him to wrap his head around what happened and figure out how he can get past it.

He’s a sensitive soul and when he gets hurt; he takes it extremely personal. Even if he messed up and you broke it off; he’ll be hurt by the breakup. Either way; you’re going to need to give him enough time.

How much? No one knows because each Cancer man is different. There is no way to know for sure how much time he needs. He will let you know how he feels and when he feels it. If not; ask him.

Most people require a bit of space to figure out what happened, what they want, and where they are going. Until they do; they’ll feel the need to push you away or back.

How To Get A Cancer Man Back (4 Ways To Win Him Over)

There are a few things you can do to win back the love of a Cancer man and increase these chances. Here are four ways to win him over:

Make Your Apologies

If you’ve done something that has hurt your Cancer man; you’ll really need to apologize to him and explain why you did what you did. Be heartfelt and sincere about what you’re saying because he’ll be able to tell if you’re not being honest.

While he’s trying to figure things out; you can offer a friendship with him. This helps open the doorway so that you can find a healthy way back to each other. There is NO guarantee that it will turn back to romance but it may help.

Sometimes being friends from scratch again will allow you two to get to know each other as though you’ve met for the first time. It helps with communication and may help romance blossom again if the love remains.

Naturally, if he’s seeing someone else or married; this may not work in your favor. Friendship may be there but you should never assume he will leave the person he’s with for you.

If you want him in your life; you may have to settle for just the friendship by itself. Go into it with the mindset of “at least we can be friends”. Then whatever is going to happen will happen from there.

Here’s more on how to get a Cancer man to forgive you when hurt.

Don’t Chase Him Or Act Despately

If it’s been a while since your breakup and your Cancer man has moved on; it’s never under any circumstances; a good idea to chase after him. While you may still love him; he isn’t available.

It will make him question your loyalty by chasing after a “taken” man and make him perceive you in a negative light. The other thing is; if he were to go for it and cheat on the person he’s with; he may then do it to you later.

It’s best to let him do his thing with whomever it was he moved on with. If he’s meant to be with you; it will happen without you trying to work to get him back. It will be the smartest thing to just hang onto a friendship with him.

Again; friendship can turn into other things if there is love there. However; don’t try to take him from another woman or it will karmically pay you back. Trust me; you don’t want that on your hands.

You also don’t want to waste time pining and praying he’ll leave her for you. That karma can also pay you back. It’s not nice when it pays you a visit later on. You could end up hurting more than you could ever know.

Let him go and see if he willingly comes back when the time is right or IF he truly loves you.

Change Your Bad Behaviour And Your Cancer Ex Might Come Back

When a breakup has happened with your Cancer man, you need to really look deep within yourself and see what went wrong in the relationship. Was he solely to blame? Or did you also play a part in what went wrong between the two?

Going through this will take some radical honesty with yourself. You need to be willing to look at your faults and own up to your mistakes. This can be quite scary because being so reflective can show you some bad traits you have been partaking in.

Once you have recognized and noticed the mistakes you have made, you might want to spend some time actively changing your bad behavior. I am one of those people who believes that people can change, and they will change if given the right opportunity.

He might give you another chance if he has seen that you have changed your ways and have done some inner healing on yourself. He needs to see that changes have been made to who you are and that you are no longer doing all the toxic stuff you did in the past.

Here’s more about what a Cancer man likes and dislikes in a woman.

Take Things Slow If You Want To Get A Cancer Man Back

When you are rekindling your love with a Cancer man after a breakup, the most important thing you can do is give him a lot of time and space to process his feelings.

As I have mentioned over and over again, Cancer men are very sensitive and emotional. These guys really value emotional security and they need time to feel like they can trust you again.

When you are able to give him the time and space to take things slow, you are given him the reassurance that there is no pressure from your side to recommit and that you are happy to go with his clock.

Showing him that you are patient and willing to just take things slowly will make him feel a lot safer and comfortable to be with you. Trust is a very difficult thing for a Cancer man to experience, he knows what it is like to be hurt from past experience and this is why he tends to guard his heart so intensely.

3 More Ways To Get A Cancer Man Back After You Hurt Him

Sometimes, you need to up the ante and go the extra mile to win a Cancer man back after hurting him. Here are three more ways to get a Cancer man back after you’ve hurt him:

Show Him Empathy And Compassion

Cancer men are really sensitive to their feelings and emotions. They feel things so deeply and intensely that it can sometimes feel overwhelming when someone doesn’t understand what they are going through.

One of the qualities these guys always look for in a partner is empathy and compassion. He absolutely needs to be with someone who can show emotional depth.

He needs to know that he is with a woman who is able to understand his emotions and isn’t scared to delve into his vulnerable side. This is especially important if you have gone through a breakup with him.

Showing him empathy and compassion during this time can go a long way in rebuilding his trust and making him feel understood and appreciated.

Try And Rekindle The Romance

Going down memory lane is a very effective way to get into the heart of a Cancer man. He is extremely sentimental and it will really touch him if you make an effort to rekindle the romance you once shared.

Consider recreating a meaningful moment you shared or express your affection through thoughtful gestures that resonate with past positive experiences you had together.

This will really make him feel nostalgic and remind him of the love and connection you once shared. Share memories of happy times together and mention specific details that show you cherish those moments just as much as he does.

You could even perform acts of kindness and show lots and lots of care through your actions. He is one of those people who gets touched when people do nice things for him. It is the type of love he appreciates.

One thing that could really help you to reconnect is if you choose to write him a heartfelt letter or message expressing your feelings to him and that you desire to reconnect with him on a deeper level. Tell him how you feel, how much you miss him, and that you want to get back together with him.

Be sincere and genuine in your words, showing him that you are willing to put in the effort to make things work again.

Consistency Wins

One thing that will really win your Cancer man over is if you show him consistent effort and commitment. Consistency is key when it comes to winning back a Cancer man after a breakup. He needs to see that you are dedicated to rebuilding the relationship and that you are willing to put in the work necessary to make it succeed.

Consistently showing up for him, both emotionally and physically, will reassure him that you are serious about making things work. Keep in touch regularly, but without overwhelming him. Show interest in his day-to-day life and express your care and concern. Rebuilding trust takes time, so be patient and understanding.

Follow through on promises and commitments. If you say you’re going to do something, make sure you do it. Be patient in waiting for his responses or decisions about your relationship. Respect his need for time to process and heal.

If you’ve worked on personal growth, let that be consistently visible in your interactions. Show that the positive changes in your behavior are permanent and not just temporary to win him back.

Consistency will help him to feel secure and safe in the connection. This should help him to trust that things will be different if you get back together again.

  1. I am still with my cancer man but it’s a long distance relationship we have been texting for 6 months now we are fully committed to each other he has told all his family members about me and told them were hoping to get married some time down the line he is coming to see me in a few weeks time so we are going to video chat with my family and introduce him to them .

    1. Dear Sandra,

      I am so glad things are moving in the right direction.
      The family matters a lot to a Cancer man. He sees this as serious business. You should know that he wants to tie the knot if he ever asks to meet your closest friends or family members. This means he is serious about you.
      Cancers are usually pretty reserved and secretive about their emotions, and they do not open up easily. But, when a Cancer man wants to marry you, he will have no trouble opening up to you.

      I hope all goes well for you both!
