5 Biggest Cancer Man Turn Offs In A Woman

1. Being Too Emotional

This is a strange thing but he’s already a very moody person. He needs a strong partner that will not bring more emotional drama into his life. In fact; he needs a woman who is more like a rock.

When he is approached with anger, hurt, or sadness and the desire to talk about things; he may become overly emotional himself or he may shut down. He needs the right woman to talk to him rationally when she’s not emotionally charged.

He needs a calm woman who will keep her cool when talking to him. It’s also important to pay attention to his moods as if you approach him when he’s in a mood; you may not get the results you want from him.

Be cautious and watch his moods and you’ll know when you can talk to him or when you should hold off for a better time. Timing is everything with this guy and whether or not he’ll pay attention to you.

2. Showing Too Much Attention To Other Men

Cancer men are the jealous/possessive type. He will not tolerate a woman who is constantly seeking the attention of other men. He could be grumpy when it comes to social media and watching other men leave racy comments.

Your Cancer could also become infuriated if he sees you responding to someone flirting heavy with you. Be careful of your social media and know that if you’re with a Cancer man; you’re going to have to tone it down on your flirting.

This is the type of guy that will get upset if you cannot keep your eyes on your own paper where other men are concerned. When you’re out and about with him; try looking with your peripherals rather than straight on.

When you’re obvious; it will piss him off. If he thinks you are a player, he will likely cut you loose. He wants a woman who is strong, confident, but all about him rather than all about other men.

3. Non-Traditional

While Cancer men can appreciate a woman who is different than the norm; he really still wants a traditional type of woman to settle down with. He wants the house with the white picket fence and kids playing in the yard.

He will also envision a woman making him yummy food in the kitchen while washing the laundry. Of course, not all women are like this anymore but he’ll look for a woman as close to this as possible.

So if you try to go against what he’s looking for; he’ll likely dismiss you. If you cannot cook and won’t even try, don’t keep neat and tidy, don’t want to clean house, and don’t want children; sorry but you’re not his type.

He knows what he wants and isn’t likely to settle for less than that. Yes, he is picky but taking on a woman who isn’t what he’s looking for would only mean that he’s looking for sex with nothing attached.

4. Antagonizing Him

Cancer is a moody fella. That means it’s a good idea not to try to piss him off on purpose. If you’re mad at him; collect yourself and approach him later to discuss it like adults.

If you go at him and pick a fight with him; he will retaliate and it’s not likely to end well. Do this often enough and you will be done as he will walk away from you never to look back.

Typically when a Cancer man is done with someone; he is really done. There may be that one who he always saw as the love of his life and could re-kindle with but for the most part; he doesn’t look back.

Keep your temper in check and don’t try to pick at or nag him. Do not give him any reason to get upset with you. Enough of it will add up and it will result in him deciding you just aren’t the one for him.

5. Being Cold

The Cancer guy needs a woman who is warm and inviting. He doesn’t want a woman who is cold toward him when he needs her most. If she cannot understand and be compassionate; he has no need for her.

Even if you don’t understand why he’s upset; be there for him anyway. You don’t have to cry when he cries but you better comfort him and show him that you’re there for him.

If you turn your back on him at any point; he’ll see this as a reason to leave you. He needs security and a woman who will always be warm with him even when he’s not having a great day.

Let him tell you about his day or whatever it is that upset him. You don’t have to empathize but at least; show him that you are there and that he can tell you anything. Coldness only brings about your own dismissal.

Cancer men are really not that difficult to deal with as long as you know the basics of who they are, what they want, and what they need. They’re fairly simple and if you’re willing to play his way; you’ll be just fine.

If you’re resistant to him and his ways; he may not be the right one for you. He needs someone with a heart that will have compassion for him during the times that he truly seems to need it.

6. Being Aloof Or Unemotional

One of the most important aspects to a Cancer man’s personality is his emotions. He is very emotional and is looking for a deep connection with his romantic partner, especially in a romantic sense. 

When a Cancer man is sleeping with a woman he wants to feel that connection and bond with her. He wants to dive deep and get to know her soul as this is what makes him feel most alive. 

However, when a Cancer man sleeps with a woman who is aloof or unemotional it can really turn him off. He wants to experience that vulnerability and feel an open heart connection with her. 

He doesn’t expect you to cry or pour out your heart and soul, but if you avoid looking him in the eyes or seem like you are elsewhere when you are having sex, then it can really turn him off.

7. One Night Stands

As I keep saying, an emotional connection is very important to a Cancer man. This is what he yearns for in his sexual connections. He wants to feel that intimacy and love when he is having sex. 

This is why the thought of a one night stand really puts a Cancer man off. He doesn’t want to be used for sex as it makes him feel icky. A deep connection is really important to him sexually. 

And the Cancer man knows that this kind of connection you can build only over time. If your Cancer man gets the idea that you might just be interested in him because of the sex, then it is a sure way to get him to run to the mountains. 

He wants something more than this, and in this day and age it is difficut for him to find this type of connection as everyone seems to be doing one night stands. Hook up culture really isn’t something the Cancer man is interested in. He wants more!

8. Being Too Aggressive Or Dominant

When it comes to sex, the Cancer man likes things to be tender and emotional. This doesn’t mean it is boring, as this type of love making can actually be very passionate, intimate, and intense. 

However, a Cancer man really doesn’t like it when a woman is too agressive or dominant in the bedroom. He doesn’t like to be dominated or feel like he is out of control. 

He isn’t particularly aggressive either, but he would rather be the one taking the reigns than having his woman do so. Aggressive sex really frightens the Cancer man as it is so against his nature. 

So if you are into very aggressive kinks then you might be putting your Cancer man off as what he is looking for is something a bit more sensitive and tender in the bedroom. 

9. Being Indifferent Towards Him

When a Cancer man wants to connect sexually with a woman, it means that he really cares about her as he wants that emotional union with her. The bond is so important to him as I mentioned before. 

This is why it is one of the biggest turn offs to a Cancer man when you act indifferent towards his sexual advances and it looks like you would rather be doing something totally different. 

He wants the woman he is sleeping with to experience the same level of passion and interest as him. If that isn’t there, he immediately feels turned off and would rather be on his own. 

He wants you to be fully into him and show him how much you want him, because if you don’t, you are really going to hurt him.

10. Taking And Not Giving

One of the best parts of sleeping with a Cancer man is that he is so giving! Your pleasure is pretty much his pleasure. The more satisfied you feel, the happier and more satisfied he feels. 

He is definitely a pleaser in and out of the bedroom! However, when he feels he is giving too much and you are not giving back to him, it can really start leading to resentment and make him feel like he is giving way too much. 

It would be a good idea for you to ask your Cancer man what his fantasies and desires are, and how you can fulfill him. This should make him feel less resentment and like you actually care about him too. 

Remember he is very sensitive and he can take the slightest thing as a gripe, so work carefully with him and be sure to pick up on his needs too. He’s so used to giving that it can be difficult for him to ask for things in return!

Is Being Too Available A Turn Off For A Cancer Man?

One of the most interesting things about a Cancer man is that he is unlike other men. He is way more in touch with his feminine side, and he can be very emotional… 

There is a side to the Cancer man that is very needy and needs a lot of affection and attention. This is why when a woman is too available, it doesn’t really bother the Cancer man that much. In fact, he probably enjoys it a fair bit.

However, it is also important to realize that Cancer men are very moody in general, and there are times when he is going to want to retreat into his shell and be alone to help figure out his emotions.

This is why it is very important to really know and understand your Cancer man, because the last thing you want to do when he is in one of his moods is to be too available for him. This is when you need to give him some space and let him come to you.
