He’s traditional when it comes to what a family should be like. Remember the families on television in the old days? That’s what he envisions in his mind. He wants a dream family in which he can shine.

Cancer men vary on how many children they want to have. Some want lots of children while some may only want one or two. Most if not all Cancer men; want children.

He’s a rock that you can rely on. Whenever anything is bothering you; you can easily talk to your Cancer guy about it. He is one of the best confidants you’re ever going to have.

If you’re angry; he’ll know what to say in order to make you feel calm and collected again. He’s truly charming and seems to know just what to do in almost any situation.

Truly a Cancer man is a prize worth winning. He has other positive qualities so these are just a few. If you like the strong silent type, this isn’t the guy for you. However; if you like the romantic, sweet, and empathetic guy, Cancer is your man!

He does have some cons just as he has pros. You’ll have to read them and figure out if they’re something you can live with and aren’t game changers for you. Sometimes the bad are easy to put off to the side when the good outweighs the negative.

A Bit Too Mysterious

For some reason; even with the information he gives you; he still seems rather sketchy and you cannot quite put your finger on it. You feel he may be lying to you or keeping something important from you.

Cancer men do open up eventually to the woman they want to become life partners with. However; he’ll always have that secretive side to him. It may not be cheating or anything detrimental but he always keeps something to himself.

He’s a secretive person by nature and unless he’s hiding something really big and deal breaker material; you probably shouldn’t worry too much. Try to keep an eye on any other red flags that may appear to determine how bad it may be.

It could be that he’s hiding porn in his closet or under the sofa at his place. Honestly it can be just about anything that shouldn’t be that big of a deal but he want so to be secretive about it.

He may still talk to an ex of his but only as a friend. However you may find out and don’t appreciate him keeping it a secret. These are some of the things he may try to keep under wraps as to not upset you and because he feels it’s HIS business.

These types of things can plague a woman’s mind. If anything, you can always ask him about whatever it is you think he may be hiding from you. Otherwise, just know he’s a secretive person and as long as there are no other signs; you may be alright.

Moody Back and Forth

Pros and cons to Dating a Cancer Man

Some women describe this as being on a roller coaster of emotion with their Cancer man. You never know what mood he’s going to be in at any given time. He may be in a super good mood then at the drop of a hat; be very sour.

Each day is a new experience with this guy and he rather has this in common with Gemini men. He doesn’t have a dual personality but sometimes it feels he has several!

He’s a sensitive guy and his emotions can get the better of him when he’s not careful or taking care of himself properly. He is easily angry, annoyed, hurt, or saddened.

You’ll have to watch everything you say before you say it as to not affect his mood. You’ll have to think out your conversations before you have them otherwise it’s a tossup of what mood you may put him in.

It’s his own responsibility to control his emotions though so don’t ever think that it’s your fault that he’s reacting the way he is. He may try to blame you though so watch out for that.

Being Clingy or Overly Reactive

This guy is petrified of his woman cheating or leaving him. He’s especially sensitive when it may involve another man. He’s afraid that another man may swoop in and steal her away.

This means that he is insecure and has trust issues. He can sometimes want to be with his lady love a bit too much. If you find him following you around the house; there may be a problem.

Certainly if you cannot seem to do anything without him being right there; this is another problem and red flag. If he doesn’t want you to go out with your girlfriends; this is a problem.

If he knows you have male friends but doesn’t trust you to talk to them without him being right next to you; this could also be another red flag. If he tries to monopolize all of your time; you can find yourself quite flustered.

Cancer man is known for being jealous and quite possessive. He needs to learn that it takes TWO to make or break a relationship and if he cannot trust you; he has no business being in a committed relationship.

He has security issues and needs to feel safe within his relationship. The thing is; HE himself needs to work on his own inner issues and understand that not every woman wants to leave him or betray him.

Controlling via Manipulation

Pros and cons to Dating a Cancer Man

The Cancer man is one of the best at getting people to do what he wants them to do via manipulation. He’ll blow smoke up someone’s rear in order for them to believe him or buy into what he wants.

If you notice he’s kissing up to you and trying to win you over; he’s probably trying to get something from you or trying to get you to be alright with something he wants to do that you’re against.

He can sell the biggest lemon of a car to anyone. This guy thrives in jobs such as sales. He’s really good at getting people to do whatever it is he wants. Sadly, this is also a way he controls folks.

This is no different from when he’s in a relationship and tries to control his woman via manipulating her. He may suggest to her that going out with her friends isn’t good for her because of the way women talk.

He’ll be really slick about it in a way that you may not see right away. Later on you realize that he effectively talked you out of not going simply because he didn’t want you to.

You’ll start to feel resentment toward him after awhile if you don’t put a stop to it right away. If he isn’t comfortable with you have time on your own or with your girlfriends; keep doing it.

You have to show him you can do this and he can still trust you. Don’t let his pouty face or tantrums sway you from doing what you know is not only healthy but harmless.
