Have you been left by a Cancer guy? Are you missing him and wishing he felt the same? How can you make a Cancer man regret leaving you? Are you looking for a way to make him regret leaving you? The work is already halfway there – this is a sign that clings onto the past, whether you try to make him or not! Here are some ways to ensure that he wishes he never left:

Ladies, if your Cancer man has left you and you are worrying about whether or not he regrets it – don’t. This is the one sign you can totally rely on to always look back down memory lane and wish that he’d never broken up with you.

You see, Cancer men hold onto the past, which includes their past relationships. He was probably pining over his ex when he was still with you. Hence, it’s not that hard to make him regret leaving you in the first place!

Just remember that making him regret leaving you may not bring him back – if that was your intention, of course. It might just create more hurt, and more confusion. And you want to make him regret leaving you in the first place.

As you know, your Cancer ex is super-sensitive and can easily get wrapped up in emotional drama! And, do you really want that in your life? Make him regret leaving you because you are the best!

So, without further ado, here’s how to make your Cancer ex regret leaving you, and perhaps bring him back into your life and start over:

7 Ways To Make Your Cancer Ex Regret Leaving You

1. Remind Him Of The Memories You Had Together

One of the favorite things for a Cancer man to do is take a walk down memory lane. He cherishes the memories you have made together, and it’s the one single thing that will make him most long after you and your relationship, and fill him with regret.

Reminding him of these memories, whether you’re out for coffee, chatting on instant messaging, over the phone, or posting a memory on social media, is a sure-fire way to have him feeling strong and intense emotions over the past!

2. Ignore Him When He Reaches Out Emotionally

Cancer is a water sign, which means that he functions primarily on an emotional level. He’s a “feely” kind of guy, and like his symbol, the crab, he can be rather clingy (think of his pincers!).

You’ll find that even after the relationship is over, he will likely reach out emotionally to you. It seems a little unfair, seeing as he left you, but Cancer people can be a little emotionally self-indulgent in that way.

If you want to make him regret leaving you then one of the best things you can do is withdraw emotionally. Don’t be there for him anymore, and make it clear that this is the consequence of him leaving you.

Once he sees that you are no longer there to mother him, he will have some serious second thoughts!

3. Get Along With His Mother

Cancer men are usually very attached to their mothers. Their ideal woman is one who gets along with her, as well as with the rest of his family.

If you already have a relationship with his mother, that’s great – keep it up. Go for coffee with her, go for walks, and be her friend. When he sees that you get along so well with one of his favorite people in the world, he will definitely be wondering if he did the right thing by leaving you!

Plus, it’s very likely that his mom will be on his case about why the two of you aren’t together anymore. You want her on your side – trust me!

4. Take Back All Your Things From His Home – And Vice Versa

Because Cancer is a sign that just loves his home, it’s likely you spent a huge amount of time there together. And vice-versa! Of course, you may have even lived together, as that is usually what happens very quickly when getting into a relationship with this sign.

One way to make him regret leaving you is by removing all of your things from his house. Your clothing, photos, decorations, toothbrush, and so on.

Should you leave anything behind? Yes! Leave a photograph or two, because as we know from our first point, that Cancer men are hugely sentimental and very responsive to pictures and memories! You do want to make him miss you, right?

5. Take Photos Of The Two Of You Off Social Media

Cancer men are very likely to be the type to scan over your photos together over and over again, longing for days gone by. This fills him with nostalgia, and possibly regret, but not more regret than not having any photos to pine over!

Removing your couple photos from social media will make your Cancer ex practically go into a frenzy of regret! You can always download them onto your desktop and save them for yourself, of course. This is a harsh way to make him regret leaving you, but it does work.

6. Move In With Someone Else

How To Make Cancer Ex Regret Leaving You

If you are ready, and you’ve met someone you like – yet you still want to make your Cancer ex regret leaving you – move in with them. Or, move in with your bestie. Just move out of the home you shared together so that there’s no chance of him ever going there again.

He will feel major regret that he can never return to the place where you once shared memories. And you will get a fresh new start! This is a win-win for everyone, really.

7. Stop Going To Your Old Favorite Places

Because Cancer men are the types to be ultra-sentimental, they are very likely to keep returning to your favorite places together. For example, where you used to have your Saturday morning breakfast or where you had your first date.

Even if you really like that place, find somewhere new and press the reset button. This will be great for your own mindset, and also, when he goes there and doesn’t see you anymore, he may have a sudden feeling of regret.

In conclusion, ladies, if you want to make your Cancer ex regret leaving you, a lot of it is just going to involve memories and sentiment. If you can trigger these two things for him, he will have regret over leaving you, guaranteed!

And trust that he is feeling the loss as much as you are – this isn’t a heartless sign. Quite the opposite, in fact. Check in and ask yourself why you want him to regret leaving you. Do you want him back? Or do you want revenge? Or do you just want someone to share your feelings with?

My Final Thoughts

A Cancer man will definitely miss you when you are gone, you don’t have to worry about that. He is extremely sentimental and gets very attached to the woman he goes into a relationship with.

He’ll miss you every day you are gone. It would just save you a lot of heartbreak to not expect any major declarations of love once he is gone. This just isn’t his style.

When a Cancer man misses you, he may make subtle suggestions that he is thinking about you, but he will often depend on you to reach out so that the two of you can connect once again.

Space is a really good thing to give a Cancer man because this is exactly what he needs to remember how special you are and this might make him regret leaving you! He needs to realize what he is missing out on.

There is nothing more wonderful than being with a Cancer man…

He is so sweet, kind, caring, supportive, and gentle…

A true gentleman and the type of man you only thought you could make up in your dreams…

A Cancer man really knows how to love you and take care of you as no other man can!

However, things with your Cancer man have been feeling a little off recently…

You can’t put your finger on it, but it seems like he is slowly losing interest in you and the relationship…

This is incredibly heartbreaking as you love your Cancer man very much.

He is everything you have ever wanted in a man.

The thing is, you thought he was happy with you as well.

But you can feel your Cancer man backing away slowly…

All you want is to know that your Cancer man misses you and still cares about you!

There are times when he just ignores you and doesn’t get back to your texts.

It hurts you so much when your Cancer man doesn’t respond to what you have to say.

You never thought your relationship was going to end up like this…

And it feels like there is nothing you can do to make him come back to you!

What would you say if you knew that you could turn things around quite easily?

Would it make you happy to know that you can get your relationship back to where it once was?

  1. I dated a cancer guy for about 7 months. I fell in love and he was a player. I don’t know for sure if he physically cheated but as I like to say “diffinatly work on the back burners”. We hadn’t been broken up a week and he was with someone else. Someone he had on the back burner! I do miss him because like I said I had fallen in love and I really wish I could make him miss me as I do him.

    1. Hi Tonia!

      I am so sorry to hear that your Cancer situation didn’t work well. Some are bad seeds like other signs have a few bad ones as well. If you did get him back, would you even be able tot rust that he wouldn’t do the same things again? He moved on quickly as well. That’s not a good sign. It seems he’s not really ready to settle down. Give it some time and then try to reach out later and see how he’s doing. Then you’ll figure out if there is a chance or not.

  2. Hi am currently in separation with my cancer baby daddy it’s been six months he walked away from us for someone else however I only talk to him unbehalf of the child I really still love him tho am a Capricorn so I can let my guard down to let him really know how I feel he removed us I took my self out his way but whenever we talk he seems to be so caring towards me but I just pretend not to care but I do am confused am hurt because we talk about our future so much it’s been 6 years just so easy to remove and forget

    1. Hi Rusheda!

      I am so sorry to hear about your separation. I know that’s a struggle. I don’t think he just removed and forgot sweetheart. You two had a child together so a bond is always going to be there like it or not. You didn’t mention if he’s still with that other person. It’s possible he will actually figure out that no one compares to you and will want you back. I’ve seen this with Cancer men. They think the grass is greener on the other side until they go over there and figure out the grass was the best where he was so he goes back. For right now just focus on you and your child sweetheart. Let everything else flow as it may. I wish you all the best!

  3. Oh, this is so true. I met a Cancerian years ago – he had a child overseas so we had an on off intense relationship across continents for 9 years, culminating in him going back to his home country. I thought we had both moved on as we both had other relationships but 10 years later he heard I was going home on holiday and asked me to look him up. I was going to, but had a negative feeling and didn’t bother. I heard through a mutual friend that he was very upset, he used to talk about me all the time etc…..He died the following year so there was never any resolution of the past. 10 years later on his birthday he came into my mind and wouldn’t go….I visited a kinesiologist to clear the energy. I didn’t know she was also a medium –she had a message from him – apologies, major regrets it was his biggest mistake and more. I did a comparison of charts via synastry which was very informative. Past lives etc.

    1. Hi KMA!

      Oh my gosh I’m sorry to hear that he passed. His regrets sound about right for what happened. He is most likely at peace now that he’s given her the message to give to you. You may actually hook up again in another life since you have before. That being said, I do hope you’re able to find healing now that you know how he felt. We are given more than one soulmate in a lifetime so you still have another waiting for you. Keep your heart open and the universe will provide you a magnificent partner. Thank you for sharing your story sweetheart. I wish you all the very best.

  4. I had a Cancerian friend with whom we have been chatting for 5 months. Then last month we met at his place for the first time. We dated for 5 times. Although he likes me and sees me beautiful inside and outside as he said it many times, his biggest fear is the age gap of 8 years (younger than me). So it was killing him in his head so he couldn’t continue and said somethings he cannot understand even himself. So we didn’t continue seeing each other. Do you think he will come back? I had told him not to contact me until I’m ready.

    1. Oh my goodness, Dorianne, I thought you were almost writing about me and my friend! My friend who used to be my coworker(Cancerian) and I have been chatting for 6 months. We went out for lunch or dinner and just enjoyed our conversations and company. No sex involved and we remained friends but he used to tell me how I was beautiful, I look very nice and all sorts of stuff girls would love to hear from someone they were in love with. I know he had been friend with another girl though who he would call her his “sister”. She is married and have a baby with her husband. They have known each other for a few years. My friend decided to tell her last summer that he had been seeing me and she told him she was happy for him. But after 5 months later, I don’t know what happened but she went to my friend and I guess she decided to leave her husband to be with him. One day I got text from him saying that he was seeing her almost like every other day. I didn’t have a good feeling about it, but after few days later, he said they decided to be more involved with each other’s lives and be committed to each other. I was so devastated and sad but I told him I was happy he was happy and he deserved to be happy.
      That was it. I haven’t sent him a text ever since. We didn’t do anything sexual in the 6 months except for kissing each other’s foreheads or cheeks and hugs, but he told me he loved me and I told him I loved him as friends. To my eyes, everything happened all the sudden but I guess they had been planning this behind me. I was the only one who didn’t see this coming. He was 9 years younger than me by the way. She is still in 20’s and way younger than him so I lost all my confidence and hope.

      1. Hi KT!

        It sounds like you’ve been through quite a bit sweetheart. Sometimes it’s not in the stars for two people but it wasn’t by chance either. It’s someone meant to have an encounter for some purpose. That’s what I believe in your situation. Don’t lose your confidence and hope darling. Boost yourself up, take excellent care of yourself, and remember you are a GODDESS! I wish you nothing but the love you deserve.

  5. My first bf was a Cancer. We were friends through High school and our families knew each other.

    We dated on and off for 4 years. We had our good and bad times. After the break up we stayed in contact. I wanted to get back together but he wanted to move on so I respected his wishes and started dating other people. He did too but kept trying to reach out to me. I responded a few times because I don’t like to be rude but when he was in a serious relationship and his partner was about to give birth to their first child, that’s where I drew the line and blocked him. I felt like he shouldn’t be talking to me and support his gf.

    Just recently, he happens to get work close to where my parents lived (which was along way from where he lived) and paid them a visit. I happened to be visiting my parents at the same time but chose to avoid him.

    He asked questions about me and what I was doing. He also hung out with my brother. At this time he was about to become a father again.

    I’m not sure what to think of this situation.🤔

    1. Hi Shannon!

      Well next time he talks to you then you should say “how would your girlfriend feel about you talking to me” and see what he says. He may be trying to see if there are feelings there with you but he could just be flirting and has no intention on leaving his girlfriend. I think you should find out before it goes any further. Do what you know is right intuitively.
