Passionate Souls: 10 Things To Know Before Dating A Cancer Man Or Woman

by Stefani Pappas

I'd like to argue Cancers are the total package.

We Cancers are pretty complicated. We're selective about whom we keep close, and as water signs, our moods certainly fluctuate.

We're those ride-or-die people. We either love you or hate you; there's simply no in-between with us.

What is it like to date a Cancer? It's one hell of a ride. If you are courageous enough to begin a relationship with a Cancer, there are certain things you have to expect.

Buckle up.

1. We're winners.

We strive to excel in everything we do. Some may call this micromanaging, but we refer to it as success. Hard work is our middle name. But don't be threatened by our ambition; you have to let us do our thing. Encouragement along the way is much appreciated.

2. We're sensitive, so deal with it.

Cancers are loving and loyal human beings. We are tender-hearted, and we wear our emotions on our sleeves.

If we feel betrayed, disappointed or upset, we literally shut down. You have to know how to handle our sensitivity.

At the end of the day, we are aching for compassion and understanding from others. Bring your sympathy to the table, and you're okay in our books.

3. Ain't nobody f*cking with our clique.

We are family-oriented people. Mess with anyone we consider family, and you're on our bad list.

This doesn't just apply to our direct family members, either. We treat close friends like they are our own. Impress our friends and family, and you're halfway there, my friend.

4. We'll be there for you.

Sure, we may let our moods swing from time to time, but our dependability is consistent. We are reliable, loyal and diligent to those we hold near and dear.

You can rely on us for a boost of confidence, a helping hand or a last-minute rescue. We always have your back.

5. We take charge.

We don't sit on the sidelines; we're those head quarterbacks, ready to win the big game. In our personal and professional lives, we take full control.

We're power players, and we're constantly persevering. If you can't handle the heat, then get out of the kitchen.

6. When our minds are made up, they're made up.

If a Cancer has a plan, you better respect it. We have heightened senses of intuition, and we always trust our instincts. Respect our decisions, and just roll with it.

We're controlling, strong-willed and persistent. Don't let our crab claws come out.

7. We're passionate.

Whatever we do, we do it with passion. Expect intensity from us in relationships, and in every other aspect of our lives.

When we identify with things, we pour our hearts and souls into them. In order to be a part of our lives, you have to believe in our dreams, too.

8. Our love is ocean-deep.

Our water sign may depict the depth of our love; we naturally have a high capacity for affection. When we find the right partners, we will be more loving than any other sign imaginable.

We are devoted to you, protective of you and admire the romantic gestures that make us weak in the knees. Let's see what you've got, Romeo.

9. We're loyal, and we expect the same from you.

When it comes to dating, we are either in it for the long haul, or we're not going to waste our time. When we do commit, our loyalty is stronger than anything.

However, we expect the same from you. Break your loyalty to a Cancer, and you'll regret it for the rest of your life.

10. We're a mystery.

We always like to keep you guessing.
