The Cancer man is a unique combination of emotional depth and masculinity that many find appealing. If you have a Cancer male as a possible love interest, there are a few things that you should know in order to make him feel that you are relationship material. This is a man that doesn’t play games when it comes to his emotions and personal life. So, if you’re interested in snagging yourself an emotionally sensitive family man, the Cancer man just might be for you.
The Emotionally Complex Cancer Man
It is important to understand that the Cancer man is quite complex. Ruled by the moon, Cancer men have the attributes and traits of Cancer women except that they are men. So, just imagine feeling deep emotions while being told by society that being a man means being unemotional and bearing a strong demeanor. While it is socially acceptable for the Cancer female to envelop herself in emotions, it is important to remember that Cancer men feel just as deeply. However, due to societal norms, he often has to hide and suppress his very deep emotions for the sake of “manhood”. But who says that men can’t be caring, nurturing, and deeply emotional? Who says that men can’t and don’t cry? Who says that men can’t desire to have a family and an abundant home life? Why is “moodiness” only relegated to women? These are all elements that the Cancer man deals with consistently that he often keeps to himself. So, anyone interested in a relationship with a Cancer man has to understand that there is a lot more lurking under the surface. While their female counterparts are allowed the grace to exhibit their emotions, the Cancer man will only show his emotions within the confines of the safety of a trusting relationship or through brash behavior. Those interested in a Cancer man can make themselves quite attractive by offering these emotional, caring, nurturing men the space to be themselves fully.

Mothers & Nurturing Partners
Due to the influence of the moon, the Cancer male can have a reputation for being a mama’s boy. The relationship with the mother and/or the maternal side of the family is important for anyone with Cancer energy regardless of gender. IThe Cancer man that has positive relationships with his mother and family tends to replicate this energy in his adult life. On the other hand, the Cancer man who didn’t necessarily receive the nurturing, loving care from his mother and/or family will often seek this out in his relationships. There is a belief that the Cancer male is seeking a mother and a partner all-in-one. This may sound kind of weird, but the reality is that the Cancer man wants someone that can fulfill both of these roles. So, he’ll be looking carefully at potential suitors to see if they possess nurturing, caring, lunar energy.
Since Cancer energy is oriented towards settling down and creating a family, the Cancer man is seeking someone that he can trust emotionally and who will be a solid life partner and a great parent to his children. If you are interested in a Cancer man, do understand he is looking carefully at your character to determine whether or not you would be not only a good long-term partner but also whether or not you are someone he would want to establish a family with.
Establishing a Homefront
One of the greatest goals of the Cancer male is to establish a home base that provides the security where he can express his emotional sensitivity safely. The Cancer male especially desires this again due to the fact that he is more likely to have to suppress his emotions due to society standards about how men should act. The saying “home is where the heart is” definitely applies to those with Cancer energy. This is the type of guy that will have his own little man cave where his partner is more than welcome to come and snuggle. This is the type of man that remembers birthdays and plans romantic dinners. This is the type of man who doesn’t mind sharing deep emotions over a glass of wine. Ultimately, the Cancer male is looking to settle down with someone that he can be open and honest with on a deep emotional level. While this seems like an easy feat, it is nothing of the sort.
Ultimately, the Cancer man has to feel that they are genuinely emotionally safe with whomever he is intimate with. This is something that cannot be faked or forced. It is for this reason that if you are interested in a Cancer male the best you can do is just simply be yourself and show that you are sincere.
