How to Date A Cancer

I am in no way shape or form an expert on astrology, but I definitely study my own. Everything I’m about to say is backed with my own personal feelings and experiences, and the fact that I have literally never met a Cancer who is not this way.

Cancers are known to be the most emotional sign in the zodiac, and as a cancer girl myself……… that might be true. On the other hand, however, we make for the most loving, generous and supporting partners in a relationship (when you give us a chance). We don’t mean any harm, all we want is someone who will make us feel secure.

Cancers are hard to open up. If you’re going to date a Cancer, be prepared to be the lead, because it’s hard for us to initiate. In the beginning, some prompting will need to take place, but once you make us feel safe, I promise everything will start flowing.

It is not easy to impress a Cancer. I know for me, it’s hard to trust people because I have a hard time imagining that I could ever find someone who matches my loyalty. Words will definitely not be enough, it is your actions and your effort that will ultimately win one over. If you can prove that you are consistent and trustworthy, you’ll have a Cancer’s heart in no time.

Our “animal sign” is the crab. It could be a shock to you when a Cancer’s crabiness first comes out, but just know that our sensitive side sometimes takes over. With that being said, the biggest turn on for a Cancer is when their partner doesn’t let them stay sad, or hold a grudge.

If you’re looking for a one-night-stand, LOL look somewhere else.

A true Cancer has a spot-on intuition. If you are playing games, or your intentions aren’t pure, we will know. And if we have the slightest inkling that you’re not that interested in us, we will fall back completely. You have to keep us engaged. It might sound redundant and annoying, but Cancers need constant reassurance and if you don’t give that to us, we will assume that you’re not interested or that you just don’t care, and we’ll look elsewhere.

By constant reassurance, I don’t mean you need to tell us you love us and you want to marry us everyday. It’s truly the littlest things that make a Cancer happy. For example, ask us how our day was. Don’t lie to us. Make us laugh. Keep it real.

To sum it up, Cancers can be the best lovers you’ve ever had. Just don’t give up on them. At times they can seem like a handful, but they just want someone to reciprocate all the love that they’re willing to give. But please don’t misinterpret everything I’m saying with being weak, or being dependant. If we have no one to give it to, we will always give it to ourselves.



Capricorns and Cancers are on the exact opposite of the Zodiac spectrum. Cancers can get attached to Capricorns easily because they are leaders. We are attracted to how direct and forward they are. With how good we are at reading people, we need someone who will not hide their emotions (not that Capricorns have any). Capricorns are extremely goal-oriented, and while that is a good thing, they often bury their emotions. A Cancer who is truly interested in a Capricorn will make it their mission to reach those emotions by being her empathetic, affectionate, sentimental and supportive self, which might be exactly what a Capricorn needs.


Cancers and Tauruses share a common goal, that is security, stability, and significance. A Taurus can keep it real, and they rarely hold on to emotional baggage that makes them unable to give and receive love. Cancers are attracted to the way Tauruses will not give up, and they are willing to fight for the relationship. They’ll be supportive to a Cancer, and understand their sensitiveness. They will fulfill a Cancer’s need to feel “desired.”


As we’re arguably one of the most misunderstood signs in the Zodiac, maybe we should all just date each other. Fuck it.
