How to Date a Cancerian: 13 Steps (with Pictures)

If a Cancer is around, fasten your seatbelts as the trip is going to be pretty crazy. The most loyal and affectionate sign of all, Cancer is a mixture of dynamism and complexity. Those born between June 21st and July 22nd make good companions. Are you willing to take the challenge?


Part 1 of 3: Breaking the ice

Date to Cancer Step 1

Step 1. If you want to make someone fall for you, know that this is the right sign

Cancer women like a gentleman in the classic way. She loves romance, intimacy and receiving affection and attention. Cancer men will be romantic and courteous, showering you with gifts and shy compliments. Although they act slowly, romance is part of their hearts.

Cancerians need to know you're serious. To get the ball rolling, you need to give it an initial push. Get on your white horse and start trotting. A Cancer, in all its dynamic glory, is worth it

Step 2. Get to know them

Because Cancer is a very cautious sign, it's best for your relationship to get to know the person better before demanding a higher level of romance or intimacy. In the beginning, friendship will strengthen the bonds between the two of you and set the stage for courtship.

Cancer is a physically affectionate sign. Complement your relationship with small touches, hugs, and subtle yet significant displays of affection. Get the person used to your touch. She will love to give back

Step 3. Go ahead

If you are a woman, perhaps the first step in this relationship should be yours. If you're a man, be aware that it may take her longer than usual to be ready to kiss you. Cancer likes you, but needs an encouragement to get out of his shell!

  • Never call them out on a date in public as this will make them very nervous. Do this alone. Invite this person to a casual but fun date. Nothing that involves a lot of pressure and other stigmas.

    Just because someone is a Cancer doesn't mean they can't have fun. Try taking her to a beach or a pool, as this is a water sign

Step 4. Don't waste your time playing games

Cancerians are very intuitive about people and their motivations, so don't waste your time playing tricks, playing cat and mouse, or playing any other variety of mind games. They will notice what you are doing and will notice your falsehood.

Cancerians, once they feel comfortable, will be straight with you. They need you to be straight with them, too! If you're pretending to be someone you're not or trying to be mysterious, they won't buy it. They're great at reading people, so don't even think about hiding your emotions

Step 5. Make them feel at home

Cancerians love the family and like to feel at home. Generally, they prefer to stay in their house, but if you can make them feel comfortable anywhere, so much the better. As you open your home to them, give them some authority so they can act as they please.

Talk to them about your family. Show that you value yours and that you are a family person. The Cancer person likes this more familiar look. Family is very important to them and nothing will change that

Part 2 of 3: Knowing what to expect

Date to Cancer Step 6

Step 1. Accept that your Cancer is old-fashioned, traditional, and loyal

These things are not bad! In fact, they can be quite positive. When you conquer a Cancerian, he will be infinitely loyal. They expect you to be the definition of romance: loving, kind, maybe a little conservative, and just as loyal as they are. There is nothing wrong with that!

When it comes to getting them into bed, they can be a little bland. They are more romantic and sensual than spicy and exotic. But if you can get the person to trust you, they'll be willing to open up their world. The important thing is to win the Cancerian's trust and not break it

Step 2. Know that they may have trust issues

While having trust issues is a human thing, Cancers are worse. They want to trust others but find it difficult, mainly because they have a good memory and an ability to hold grudges because of it. However, they love to love others, so it's all a matter of give and take.

That's probably the biggest downside to being Cancerian. It can be difficult to break their shell; but if you are willing to put in the effort, it can be very worthwhile. A Cancer who really loves someone is willing to kill and die for the person he loves

Step 3. Know that a Cancer needs to be needed

If there was a label for this sign, it would be “caregiver”. They just work based on that. Be willing to depend on them! They love. They live off it. Be open about your needs and they will look to meet them.

Let them take care of you when you're sick. Talk to the Cancerian about any issues that arise. Ask them for advice about a problem at work or with your friends. Heck, let them cook you dinner! It's a great exchange, don't you think?

Step 4. Prepare to be taken care of very well

Cancerians are the most affectionate of all signs. If you want a relationship that is more distant, Cancer is not for you. They will love to show you love and affection. Let it be mutual!

This does not mean that they are a "stick". While they can be clingy, it's so genuine it's hard to blame them for it. They just want to be around you and show you how much they care. It's almost admirable. If only everyone loved as Cancerians do…

Part 3 of 3: Solidifying the relationship

Date to Cancer Step 10

Step 1. Always be comforting

Don't play hard to get - the Cancer will probably think you're not interested and don't care about him. If it looks like he's feeling a little insecure about himself or the relationship, don't hesitate and comfort him. He would do the same for you!

Cancerians do not tolerate a lack of patience. If you get angry or upset about small things, they will think you're not being rational and not looking at things in a bigger perspective. They will think you don't care if you constantly show too much anger. They can be quite sensitive when they feel vulnerable

Date to Cancer Step 11

Step 2. Be blunt

Cancerians believe that words weigh a lot. If you offer them a declaration of love, they will literally take it. So, say things candidly. If you want to bed a Cancer, don't say you love them. Don't deceive. This won't get you anywhere!

If you don't speak honestly, they will likely notice and consider you a liar. It is not enough to talk lip service. Choose your words carefully. Cancerians will remember what you say

Step 3. Be Direct

A Cancer person may not open up at first, but when you step into their world, they'll expose themselves and expect commensurate honesty. Be direct! Let her know how you feel. You would like honesty too, wouldn't you?

Step 4. Learn to deal with its complexities

Cancer is the crab. They have a hard exterior that is very difficult to get through, but underneath there is a sensitive and emotional person. Sometimes they can be vulnerable, but at the same time they can be strong and independent. In short, Cancer is a very dynamic and unpredictable sign. Can you keep up?

They are quite complex and can be fragile. Annoy a Cancer and he'll sulk for days. When they feel secure and loved, they are incredibly wonderful and successful human beings. When they feel vulnerable, they close down. It's up to you to make them able to show that greatness from within


  • Try not to get into their bad mood.
  • If you are an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn), understand that Cancer thinks from the heart. You, being from earth, use your head.
  • Be a person present in their lives.
  • Don't date a Cancer if you're both very young, unless he's mature enough to understand that sometimes love has its challenges.
  • Prove you are consistent and trustworthy and the Cancer will be your best partner.
