5 Undeniable Signs A Cancer Man Is Falling In Love With You

Last updated on June 17, 2022 by Sonya Schwartz

Are you wondering whether a Cancer man is falling in love with you?

Maybe you’re in a relationship with a Cancer who is no good at sharing his feelings?

Perhaps his lack of emotions is leading you to wonder if your relationship is going anywhere?

If so, read on. This guide reveals the 5 undeniable signs that a Cancer is falling in love with you. 

But, before we get into it, it’s important that you read these next few sentences carefully. 

I wasted so many of my best years in relationships with men who didn’t really care about me. 

Most of my relationships were meaningless and short-lived. 

Now, I see it was because I didn’t know how to make a lasting impression on men…

Thankfully that all changed...and it was all thanks to learning about a powerful aspect of male psychology called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’. 

This is a deeply-held instinct which has a powerful impact on how men feel about the women around them. 

When activated, it can release tremendous feelings of longing and devotion in a man. This is a way to make him feel like no other woman can.

Once I learned this, it became so much easier to keep men in my life (you can learn how to do this by reading my personal story).

It’s a simple skill to master, once you know how. Yet, so few people seem to know about it. 

If you’re looking to light up your relationships with men, read how I discovered the ‘Hero’s Instinct’ right now. 

Of course, it may be that your Cancer man is already on the brink of falling in love with you.

Below is our list of 5 telltale signs that this is the case.

Typical Cancer Man Behavior When In Love

Typical Cancer Man Behavior When In Love

There are a number of typical behaviours seen in Cancer men when they are in love or sometimes even if a Cancer man likes a woman that he has yet to fall for properly. Keep an eye out for them so that you know where you stand with your Cancer male easily.


One of the best traits of a relationship with a Cancer man in love is the fact that he is perhaps one of the most dedicated boyfriends out there. That means that he shows you his love by turning up to everything you ever ask him to and doing anything you ever ask him to do. He may also happily skip on plans with his friends just so that he can be with you - especially if you have had a bad day or had some bad news so that you are in need of cheering up. He will always want to make sure you are ok.


As an extension of his dedicated ways, a Cancerian man is a very supportive partner that will help you in any way he can.

If you are going for a promotion at work, he will push you in ways that will make you more hireable. If you are training for a new fitness goal, he will train with you. If you are moving house, he will help pack up your things. He likes to make sure that his girlfriend is made to feel important in his life and finds that by being supportive, that special someone in his life feels secure in the relationship.


Have you ever felt really unwell or unsure about something? If you have a Cancer man as your boyfriend and that Cancer man is falling in love with you or is already a man in love, then you can expect your boyfriend to look after you until you are better.

They are an incredibly caring sign of the zodiac who is sensitive to a person's needs, especially when that person is their girlfriend. They get to know you to make sure they know how to make you happy so at your lowest points, they can help pick up the pieces and make you feel so much happier.


Owing to their dedicated and caring ways, this Zodiac sign is one of the most protective boyfriends you will have had in a long time, if he is in love with you. Even if he is still falling in love with you, he will still want to take actions that ensure your safety, health and happiness at all times.

Is it like pulling teeth getting him to spend time with you?
The key to solving is understanding men on a much deeper emotional level. The number #1 factor that causes men to behave this way is actually relatively easy to change with a few subtle things you can say to him.

Take this quick quiz to see if he actually likes you!

This can be a little overwhelming for some women at times who like the freedom to do as they please. Some women will find this protective nature inhibiting as it can mean they always have their boyfriend watching her them. However a Cancer man in love has the best intentions at heart and means well.

Opens Up

In keeping with being protective as well as supportive, a Cancer man is falling in love with you if he opens up to you about his feelings and emotions. They are a sensitive zodiac sign which means they will want you to know how they are and what emotional plight they are going through at any point.

Again, some women may find this quite overwhelming at first as Cancer men do open up - often when they feel secure with someone. If a Cancer man likes you and sees a future in your relationship, you will need to get on board with his regular updates on his feelings. You will soon get used to them and actually welcome his open communication which lets you know what is going on in his mind.

How Does A Cancer Man Act When In Love

How Does A Cancer Man Act When In Love

So are there any particular actions that a Cancer man displays when he is in love? A Cancer man loves to be in a relationship and so will often show the below common characteristics when out and about with the woman of his dreams.


If you are not a huge fan of public displays of affection, then you are going to have to get used to this from your Cancer guy. Being affectionate is one of the clearest signs a Cancer man gives when he is in love with a woman. This means you will be kissed and touched a lot in public as well as having him hold your hand at every given opportunity so he can show the world that you are his special someone.


In addition to being affectionate, another one of the obvious signs a Cancer man performs when falling in love is his attention to romance. Expect candle lit dinners as well as moonlit walks. All the while he will be wanting to touch you as much as possible, so get ready to hold hands throughout any date you go on.

He also shows his romantic sensibilities by sending you flowers at any given chance and celebrating any anniversary he can. He does so in the hope that he gives the woman he is with a high level of security when in a relationship with him so that she never feels taken for granted or under appreciated.

Some women may find the levels of romance he reaches hard to deal with, but a Cancer man loves to bestow and shower his girlfriend with affection and gifts. It is a good sign that he has very strong feelings for you.

Easily Hurt

These affectionate and romantic ways go hand in hand with a Cancer man being a sensitive soul. The result sadly is that he is often easily hurt in a relationship when he is a Cancer man in love. A Cancer man likes to think that just because he is in love with someone, they are incapable of hurting their feelings.

Realistically, this can never be the case all of the time, but nevertheless, a Cancer male does not have a thick skin and you'll soon get to know what his trigger points are if you want this to be your one serious relationship. It may be tricky at first, especially if you are not a sensitive person who is hurt easily like him - but soon you be able to read the signs a Cancer man displays when he is getting upset by your behaviour or words.

Loyal And Faithful

So often loyalty and faithfulness are taken for granted in a relationship, until someone cheats on the other and someone's heart gets broken. Luckily, with a Cancer man, you can be assured that his eye will never wander and he will be loyal and faithful to you for as long as you want him to be.

To some women who have been hurt in the past by a wandering eye, this may come as a shock to the system. It may also seem too good to be true - particularly if you were ever with a guy who consistently went behind your back with other women. However, as it rightly should be, you'll soon see that this loyal and faithful behavior that your Cancer man is simply acting as one should in a healthy, grown up partnership.


In stark contrast to the loyal and faithful nature of Cancer men, their jealous side can really come out when he is together with a woman that he loves. A Cancer man likes to feel like he is the only guy in his girlfriend's life, and while this is most likely the case if you have spoken about being exclusive - he can still have doubts about your fidelity that could hurt your feelings.

If this is the case in your relationship, and he cannot control his jealousy so that it is affecting your happiness, you will need to sit down with him and try to bring back balance to your partnership. If you do not communicate with him clearly enough, it could be the start of the end for you both as no one wants to be in a relationship where arguments are caused by misguided jealousy.

Signs A Cancer Man Is Playing You

Signs A Cancer Man Is Playing You

As previously mentioned above, clear signs that a Cancer man is in love with you will be his unswerving loyalty and faithfulness. However, that does not mean that a Cancer man never cheats on a girlfriend - especially if he has professed his love but does not actually really mean it. When that is the case, a Cancer man is playing you.

There are signs that a Cancer man is not being as honest with you as he could be. Keep an eye for the signals below so that you do not waste your time over a guy that will never love you. If you are sure that he is playing you, it's best to quit before your feelings get hurt.

He Is All About The Bedroom

A Cancer man is a very sensual zodiac sign and so likes to be affectionate with his girlfriends. While this, as mentioned, can be one of the signs a Cancer man likes you, it can also be a sign he is playing you if he only wants to spend time being affectionate with you between the sheets.

While a Cancer man likes to dedicate his time to his girlfriend and his girlfriend only so that, as a couple, they are not as sociable as others - that does not mean he is using his girlfriend only for sex. In fact, quite the opposite. He will, if he loves you, want to listen to your every waking thought and be as attentive as he could possibly be. If he is playing you, that won't be present in your relationship and the only together time the two of you will have, will be between the sheets.

He Never Invites You To Family Gatherings

A huge issue that many girlfriends have with their boyfriends is that they do not get introduced to their boyfriend's family. However, a Cancer man is not usually a zodiac sign that is guilty of this. To that end, if he does not want you to meet his family, there is a high chance that he is just playing you.

There could be a good reason that he does not want you to meet any of his family members, however, do be careful that his reasons are not just excuses that you are happy to believe because you are so into him. Remember, one of the best things about a Cancer man is his dedicated and caring nature. If he is displaying signs a Cancer man shows when he is playing you like not introducing you to his family, it could be time to reassess your relationship status.

He Doesn't Make An Effort To See You

When your Cancer man does not want to go out of his way to see you, you can be almost certain that he is playing you. If a Cancer man wants to be in a relationship with a girl he is in love with, he will stop at nothing to spend time with her and will go to great lengths to make sure that they can be together as often as possible.

When you are with a Cancer man that does not make the effort to see you, it can be extremely hurtful as you would probably go above and beyond for him. When that is not reciprocated it can become crushing, but it may be a good opportunity to walk away before you get even more of your feelings hurt. The special someone you are with should never make you feel bad about yourself or as if you are not worth spending time with.

Signs A Cancer Man Is Falling In Love With You - The Bottom Line

These signs that a Cancer man is playing you are just as key to learn as signs a Cancer man is falling in love with you. By being aware of both, you will be able to know where you stand with the Cancer man that you are so keen on. Plus, luckily, with a Cancer, the signs are incredibly clear and often very clear cut.

It has hard to read their loving, caring and supportive nature as anything other than a serious clue to their feelings for you. However, if you do not know that he is a Cancer it can also be as easy to read their loving ways as a ploy to mask other intentions. With a Cancer guy though, once you do know their star sign, you will soon be sure of their true want for your relationship.

  1. I read all about cancer I have relationship LDR we are 2years already but sometime good sometime moody I. Have so many lesson I got her to make our relationship become better I want him to be with me I'm leo

    1. Ohhh, same here I'm a leo and my boyfriend is a cancer. Sometimes we are having a hard time understanding each other specially when he is mad or jealous. He is absolutely moody and always hiding his true feelings even it's very obvious through his actions. All I can say is if you want to stay with a cancer, you have to be patient and understand his mood.

  2. He keeps on saying that I'm his and even told me that I'm the perfect match, but also he keeps on saying we won't date without the subject even goes there. He shows all the signs that you have above that he is falling for me, he also opened up to some extend and told me now he knows he can trust me more. Please give me something to go on or to do to make absolutely sure about it all? I really don't want to slip up with him!

  3. I am a Gemini woman, and my man is a Cancer..

    He keeps saying he loves me so much and always kiss me on my forehead and cheeks like for every second.. I do not have the feminine energy but I always tell him what to do or rule him with my words. He just keep obeying but sometimes we fight because I speak harshly when I get irritated by his wrong move.He is patient and clingy. Oh well Many say It's hard to read a cancer man but who would know that I can, so after reading his mind I always do what he wants.

    And in order to keep him inlove is to be nurturing,loving, and pretty to his eyes.. Physical appearance is always matters for him (like wtf) Gemini and Cancer may seems odd partners but if you both balance the relationship this could lead to a beautiful and cute one.

    I really love my cancer man he is kind, caring,dedicated, romantic, and creative.

    1. I love this. I am dating ca cancer man also. I am a cuspian Gemini/Cancer. Being with him feels dreamy already. He’s so caring and sweet. However I do have to initiate and encourage him to move to the next step. He is very passionate. I already feel like we make a great match.

      1. I am gemini also. My bf is cancerian..i love him so much. I'll do whatever he wants... I don't want be weird relation like the articles says.. Gemini and cancer is not compatible..

  4. I’m a cancer woman I’m falling in love this time with a cancer guy he was in love with me back in the days he was gone out of my live for 28 years now he have come back around but we both stay in Different towns he would call me a lot at First now I really don’t talk to him he only call me on the holiday days I really don’t know what is going on in his head do he still have feelings or not

  5. I have met a Cancerian man and I am a Gemini. We have spoken for hours on the phone. Opened up totally to each other. He says I am amazing that I have kinda cracked his shell. We have only been on one amazing date. No kissing or anything physical. We still talk on the phone for hours even after our meeting, opening up even more with each other. What confuses me is his cross signals that I receive from him. I don't know where I stand with him at all. I really like him and would love for us to fall in love but there is just so much uncertainty from my side.

  6. I'm an aquarius and he's a cancer absolutely our signs aren't really compatible to each other. He's been courting me for almost 10 months but sadly i gave up because all his actions was really confusing me, so of course i make a long message so that he'll know why i give up and i tell him also that i love him. Even though he's so moody i always understand him and love him it always break my heart into pieces on how he treats me. On the day that i give up, i didn't open my fb acc for almost 2weeks I'm really curious what does he reply. Does he give up too? Is he want to come back? A lot of question keeps repeating on my mind. When i open my acc i'm so shocked like hell, there's a lot of messages from him when i opened it almost cried because he's begging for me to come back and give him second chance to make it all right. I didn't really expect that because he's a type of a boy that don't beg when a girl leaves him so i give the second chance that he want. 3 weeks pass and i see little changes on him, he really doing his best so that i can trust him back. I think next month I'll say yes to him.
