The man born under the sign of Cancer may very well be the man after your own heart. Generally, Cancer people are steady. They are interested in security and practicality. Despite their seemingly grouchy exterior, men born under the sign of the Crab are sensitive and kind individuals. They are amost always hard workers and are very interested in becoming successful in business as well as in society.
You’ll find that his conservative outlook on many things often agrees with yours. He’ll be a man on whom you can depend come rain or shine. He’ll never shirk his responsibilities as a provider and he’ll always see to it that his wife and family never want.
Your patience will come in handy if you decide it’s a Cancer man you want for a mate. He isn’t the type that rushes headlong into romance. He wants to be sure about love as you do. If after the first couple of months of dating, he suggests that you take a walk with him down lovers’ lane, don’t jump to the conclusion that he’s about to make his great play. Chances are he’ll only hold your hand and seriously observe the stars.
Don’t let his coolness fool you, though. Beneath his starched reserve lies a very warm heart. He’s just not interested in showing off as far as affection is concerned. Don’t think his interest is wandering if he doesn’t kiss you goodnight at the front door; that just isn’t his style. For him, affection should only be displayed for two sets of eyes—yours and his. He’s passionate only in private.
He will never step out of line. He’s too much of a gentleman for that. When you’re alone with him and there’s no chance of you being disturbed or spied upon, he’ll pull out an engagement ring (the one that belonged to his grandmother) and slip it on your trembling finger.
Speaking of relatives, you’ll have to get pretty much used to the fact that Cancer men are overly fond of their mothers. When he says his mother is the most wonderful woman in the world, you’d better agree with him—that is, if you want to become his wife.
He’ll always be a faithful husband. Cancer men never play around after they’ve taken that marriage vow. They don’t take marriage responsibilities lightly. He’ll see to it that everything in the house runs smoothly and that bills are paid promptly—never put aside. He may take all kinds of insurance policies out on his family and property. He’ll arrange it so that when retirement time rolls around, you’ll both be very well off.
Cancers make proud, patient, and protective fathers. But they can be a little too protective. Their sheltering instincts can interfere with a youngster’s natural inclination to test the waters outside the home. Still, the Cancer father doesn’t want to see his kids learning about life the hard way from the streets. Scorpio courage, steadfastness, and knowledge of right and wrong will help the youngsters cope with a variety of life situations.
