Whether the Cancer man claims you as family, significant other or friend, you can always count on him to be there for you.

Loyalty is of utmost importance to him.

If he knows he can depend on you even when times get tough, he’ll have found a winner.

How to Make Cancer Man Fall in Love With You

Have his back

It can’t be stressed enough: Cancer men are loyal and expect the same loyalty in return.

If he’s going through a tough time, listen to him. 

Support him at his company’s office party. Stick up for him if he isn’t around to defend himself (he’ll hear about it later!).

He needs a woman he can depend on and trust completely.

As a loyal person himself, he’ll see you as someone he needs by his side and his feelings for you will grow.

Show compassion

A quick way to a Cancer man’s heart is showing compassion. 

Why, you ask? 

Cancers are empaths—they have a sophisticated sensitivity to others’ feelings. Many times, they take on your feelings without even realizing it.

When you’re compassionate, they relish being around you because you make him feel good. Plus, it reveals your soft side.

When you’re out together, be kind to others. Open the door for an elderly person or motivate someone who is having a rough day.

If you can see that your Cancer man is feeling low, give him a hug. If he’s worried about an important meeting, encourage him.

He’s drawn to a woman who cares and feels deeply.

Be feminine and classy

If you’re a girly-girl, you’re in luck, because Cancer men dig that.

Wearing skirts and dresses, putting on sweet perfume and keeping your nails polished and trim will not go unnoticed.

But if you’re not into all that, no problem. Really, you just need to show off your femininity to make these guys swoon.

Do put effort into your appearance, and skip the skimpy outfits—these men want someone they can bring home to their families.

He secretly wants someone he can brag about (plenty on that in Cancer Man Secrets).

Show your class by having good manners and being polite. Go to a fancy restaurant and teach him the difference between a salad and dinner fork. 

Impress his colleagues at a dinner party with witty humor.

Your Cancer guy will be eating out of the palm of your hand.

Take him (slightly) out of his comfort zone

Cancer is a cardinal sign, which means these natives are the initiators of the zodiac. Still, the Cancer man can sometimes get so stuck in his comfortable routine that he forgets to have fun.

Really, he just needs a gentle push. He’s more willing to do something new if he has someone to do it with. 

So, surprise him with the canoeing trip that you know he’s secretly been wanting. Go to a restaurant that you two have never been to before.

Inspired by your willingness to try new things, no matter how small they are, your Cancer guy will fall even harder.

Show your appreciation

He finds pleasure in going out of his way to help those he loves—showing your appreciation is all he needs.

You don’t have to make a grand gesture. Giving him a small gift or just thanking him will go a long way. 

He just wants someone who treasures him and all that he has to offer.
