How the Cancer native loves
The Cancer native is a sensible partner, who wants a good life and a balanced home. They need a lot of affection and recognition from their partners.
They can meet their partners through family during a reunion or a celebration. They can get married thanks to their family. In marriage, they are looking for intimacy and peace.

In some cases, they don’t get married or they get married later in life at the insistence of their families. The natives manifest a great sensuality since adolescence, utmost affection, and an outstanding imagination and sensibility, all used to express their feelings. They need a lot of love.
How to know if a Cancer man likes you
Governed by Moon, the Cancer man is melancholic, shy, and mysterious. When he finds the partner of his dreams (a lengthy process because they are picky), he will plunge head first because his romantic side has no limits.
If necessary, he will climb on a white horse for you or he will sly dragons, metaphorically speaking. When in love, he will frequently bring you flowers and gifts, he will take you to the best restaurants and he will try to fulfill any of your wishes.
Other signs that he loves you: will take the trash out on his own, without you asking, he will fix the roof or the creaking door, or he will kill the flies that disturb your peace. This man is the best partner out of all zodiac signs because he treats his lover with loyalty and attention.
Because this native is often associated with the stereotypical family man, people believe that they are too docile to make the first step, but nothing could be further from the truth. These natives love conquering; in this regards, they are simply not as direct as the Aries men.
They are not materialistic, but they are very attached to objects with sentimental value. If they make you a present that is valuable for them, you can be assured of their great trust and admiration. If they have friendly feelings for you, they will bake cookies for your friends and relatives, but if they like you in a romantic way, these gentle natives will express their feelings by sending you a photo or a sweet message.
How to win the heart of a Cancer man?
Go together on small trips near water areas (seas, lakes), take the subway together or find an intimate, hidden place (they are attracted by secret and secluded places, in cellars, underground places, caves). However, a romantic setting with a fine drink is not to be neglected because they will always be impressed by romance.
Pathetic declarations of love and love notes, dedicated poems and even old-fashioned serenades are perfect ways to win his heart.
Attracted by the past, he is fascinated by places with great historical meaning and by places that remind him of childhood.
Toys, innocent games can spark his imagination and, although he likes to act like a child, his need of love will transform him into a perfect lover. He enjoys imagination games, including those on sensual topics.
How to know he doesn’t love you anymore?
You will find out he stopped loving you when his family is distancing from you. He shares everything with his family and depends on their support.
His parents will be aware of the fact that he doesn’t love you before you even get a hint and will try to isolate you as subtle as possible.
He gets mentally mature later on in life and remains marked by his mother figure. He needs the protection and stability ensured by family life. Betrayal has the power to hurt him terribly and even if he consciously forgives, he will never emotionally forget. He is a great father and he will always be proud of his children, for which he is both a mentor and a friend.
