Do you have your eyes set on a Cancer man?

If yes, then this article is for you.

If you find yourself in the dregs of trying to figure out how to keep a Cancer man’s attention, we’ve got 15 tricks up our sleeve that will have him all over you.

1) The “needy” approach

One way you can show your Cancer man that you need him is by being a little needy from time to time.

Cancers are nurturing, caring people. They don’t want to be in a relationship with someone who appears independent, self-sufficient, and not in need of their help.

They want someone that needs them as much as they need them. They want to feel needed.

You should send signals that you need him. Tell him that you need his help with something, so he gets the idea that he’s needed in your life. He’ll most likely make himself available to help you because it makes him feel needed.

So, how do you appear needy?

Introduce yourself with a “my life has gotten so messed up” story and he’ll flip his lids over that.

Next, make sure to tell him about all the things you can’t do and how much you need his help.

Cancer men like knowing that their presence is useful in your life.

The easiest way to get his attention is by being a little needy and vulnerable. If he gives you some time of the day, don’t hesitate to ask him out on a date immediately!

You’ll come across as the most consistent and loving person in the world. Then, you can start granting him favors to keep him on your side.

A cancer man will find it extremely flattering that you’re going to such lengths to impress him! It will be easy to keep him there.

2) The “pretty” approach

Everyone wants to feel pretty. And men are visual creatures.

Cancer men are no different, even though they may not know it or show it.

Cancers love a stunning woman. They are attracted to a woman with confidence, elegance, and poise.

You should make sure to show him that you’re beautiful to get his attention. You need to learn how to project that kind of aura around you to attract them.

You can start by making him fall for you the first time you see him. They like a girl who takes care of herself and has a good sense of style.

They love when other people compliment them on how attractive their female partner is.

You can use this to your advantage, by looking for cute clothes that complement your personality and style.

They want a pretty woman by their side because they’re very conscious of their looks and how they look in comparison to other men.

3) The compassionate approach

Cancer men are emotional creatures. More than any other zodiac sign, they wear their emotions on their sleeve.

They can’t help it; they simply don’t feel like concealing their feelings.

If you move them the right way, you will have the Cancer man of your life in no time!

It’s important to let him know that you’re accepting of his emotions and that you care about him and his well-being.

Cancer men are the exception to the rule that all men are unjust and self-absorbed.  Just like women, they’re more likely to go out of their way for total strangers than for people they know.

Be a good Samaritan and volunteer at a soup kitchen.

It’s because Cancer is ruled by feelings and compassion – that, and by logic. This makes them highly reliable and trustworthy.

Cancers are usually willing to do anything to help people in need. It’s also a sign of how gentle and kind they are. They’re like a warm safety blanket, comforting their loved ones with the feeling that someone cares about them.

Cancer men want someone who will bring out those emotions in them.

4) Be completely in touch with your emotions.

As with all zodiacs, Cancer men are no different when it comes to the ability to read their partner’s emotions.

Young Cancer men are often naïve about love and women.bIt’s not their fault; they’re just inexperienced.

Cancers like women who don’t try to hide or ignore their feelings. They want a woman who is emotionally open and honest not just with them, but also with her friends and family.

The only way you can be attractive is by being open and honest.


You need to express your emotions without holding anything back.

If you remind them that you have a very strong relationship with your emotions, they will feel more comfortable opening up to you and letting you in.  They feel like they will be accepted as they are because you accept them despite their flaws.

It’s important to show him that his feelings matter to you, no matter how crazy or irrational they may seem.

Cancer men are very astute at picking up when someone is not being real with them.

Don’t be ashamed, these guys are so helpful that even if you don’t need the help, they’ll be there for you and then try their absolute hardest to make your life less chaotic.

It sounds creepy, but try it out.  You’ll be surprised at his reaction.

5) Be a good listener

Cancer men want a partner who is willing to hear them out. These guys can’t get enough of you listening to them.

Expressing their emotions is hard work and they need someone who will be there to listen to them without judging or criticizing them.

They want someone to listen to them because they don’t always get that from other people in their life. Make sure that you’re a very good listener because they love having someone to share their problems with.

If you listen well, he will be comforted by it.

You’ll gain his trust and admiration at the same time. But wait! You also have to consider something.

Cancer men often have difficulty expressing their emotions. They are very sensitive, but they don’t want you to see it.

If you want to attract a Cancer man, show him that he can talk to you about anything and everything.

You’ll be amazed at how many things are now off-limits for him and how much more open he feels with you. You’ll probably see a huge difference in his life.

6) Be creative

Cancer men are insanely creative.

They’re the dreamers, the romantics, and the artists of the zodiac world. They love a good story with a happy ending. If you want to get your Cancer man’s attention, you need to be creative.

Cancers love women who are creative like them. They love being with someone who has a good imagination.

For example. Someone who can write poetry or paint.

So, what should you do?

Make him believe that you’re inventive, imaginative, and capable of coming up with new ideas whenever he needs them.

A creative partner will always be able to think of something new, even when they’re stuck in an old routine.

Cancer men are attracted to people who have a good imagination and who can think of new ways to approach problems and situations.

7) Be warm-hearted, affectionate, and expressive

Cancer men want a woman who is affectionate, loving, and warm-hearted. They are very caring and they want to feel love from you.

Cancer men love when a woman shows her feelings openly and without reservation.

They’re looking for someone who will hug them after a long day, or kiss them on the cheek when they get home from work. And sometimes, ask him to hold your hand when you’re having an emotional moment together.

Cancer men love affection; they’re not just the cuddly types. They enjoy being hugged by those they love very much.

Here’s the catch.

Cancer men are the homebodies of the zodiac.

When it comes to love, they just don’t like to go out very much. They’re more at ease staying home and cuddling with their beloved on the couch.

They’re highly sensitive and emotional creatures. So you have to be comfortable expressing your affection at home with a cancer partner.

We are halfway there.

8) Be well-educated

Cancer men are highly intelligent and hard-working.

They’re the smarty pants who know how to think logically and come up with solutions to problems. They always have their mind on the job, and they run their businesses with precision and accuracy.

They’re the men you want by your side at all times.

It’s always a good thing to be well-educated if you want to attract a Cancer man. It makes him respect you more and shows that you’re not only beautiful but extremely smart as well.

This is why you’ll have a difficult time attracting them if you don’t have a calm and rational mind.

If you’re hot-headed, wild, and spontaneous, he’ll be off your radar quicker than you can say ‘I’m sorry. ‘

9) Be supportive

Cancer men are the most emotional men of the zodiac. They are also very stubborn and have a hard time letting go of their emotions.

If you want to be a Cancer’s lifetime partner, you need to support him through his ups and downs in life. You have to encourage and cheer him on when he needs it the most.

They need a partner who doesn’t talk about them behind their back or try to be a friend in front of them.

You have to encourage him through his ups and downs and be there for him no matter what happens in your life.

These guys live for the good times and don’t like to see you sad because you’re negative.

10) Be an emotional person who understands the Cancer man’s emotions

Cancer men are the most sensitive people you’ll ever meet.

They want someone who can understand their feelings because they don’t always get that from people. They are also very intuitive and know when something is wrong without being told.

Cancer men will wear their hearts on their sleeves, and express how they feel in the moment.

They’re good listeners, they’re sympathetic, and they understand people very well. They see things from other people’s points of view and love it when you do the same for them.

They want someone who understands where all their emotions are coming from because it’s hard to explain these feelings to anyone else.

In short, you have to be understanding with a Cancer partner. Being open-minded is a must if you want to attract a Cancer man.

11) Be a good communicator, preferably with a creative mind

Cancer men can have a hard time expressing their feelings.

They seem to box their emotions in and the only way to help them open up is through a good healthy talk.

If you want to attract the Cancer man of your dreams, you need to be excellent at communication.

This is the most important factor when attracting a Cancer guy because he knows how to express his emotions with words, but he doesn’t always know how to do it with actions.

They have a habit of taking everything personally.

They’re very sensitive about the way people talk to them and about something as seemingly trivial as their daily routine.

If he’s been having a bad day, you need to ask him what’s wrong and not assume that it’s nothing.

Cancer men don’t like talking much and they’ll tell you how they feel when things are good between the two of you.

If you do this, you’ll be able to help him with his emotions, and they’ll be much more receptive to you. The way he finds comfort in telling you his doubts is a great sign that he adores you.

He will see you as a confidante and this will make him long for your presence.

12) Be unique and creative

Cancer men are very attracted to uniqueness and creativity.

They love being intrigued by every new experience that enters their lives.

They love learning from different and unusual experiences because it helps them grow as a person. If you want him to chase you, then you’ll have to think creatively.

So the next time you go out, ask what the best new place to eat is in town.

Cancer men will love it if you make them try something new and different.

They enjoy traveling and meeting new people, so make sure you add these activities as often as possible into your daily routine.

It could be any random date theme and you will still hear no complaint from your Cancer man. They like it when both of you enjoy doing bizarre things together.

It makes them feel excited and thrilled, and at the same time, happy and contented.

Cancer men like a partner who defies the status quo.

13) Be a woman of your word, but also be loyal to your family and friends

Cancer men are very loyal to their chosen few partners; they have an intense bond with them.


This is because they have a strong sense of obligation to their loved ones.

They are protective of those they love and won’t let anyone take advantage of their loved ones. They make sure that those who should be with them are by their side, and they’ll stay by them through thick and thin.

One thing you should know is that Cancer men aren’t very private with personal information.

They’ll tell anyone anything about you and your family because they want everyone to love you as much as they do.

So if you want to keep some things private with a Cancer man, you need to make sure he understands when it’s appropriate to talk about certain things with others.

14) Be self-sufficient

Cancer men are very nurturing and protective of their family and friends, but they don’t like to take care of themselves.

They make sure that everyone is taken care of before they do anything for themselves.

What does this mean?

If you want to attract a Cancer man into your life, you have to be strong and independent.

Cancer does not like clingy and dependent partners. It’s better if the woman can be independent.

It makes him feel safe and secure when you’re comfortable on your own. That’s why he likes to see you take care of yourself and handle your matters.

They want you to be able to make your own decisions without being excessively reliant on them.

If you do those things, they’ll know that they can trust you. They’ll feel secure and safe. And that’s what they want in a relationship.

He wants to have faith and belief in you, but for him, it’s about being able to and seeing that you are safe, secure, and happy.

But take note of this.

You don’t have to do everything by yourself, but you should be able to take care of yourself properly if something were to happen.

If your emotions are really strong with them, you might find it hard to be detached from them sometimes.

They need that from you so they know that you’re strong and not needy, as well as feeling good enough to rely on them when they need it.

In return, they will trust you and lean on you when they need help or care. If he sees that you are capable of taking care of yourself, he’ll be more attracted to you.

Remember that the key is to play off of their dependence by making them feel independent and loved at the same time.

15) Be honest and have integrity

Cancer men admire honesty, but they have a hard time being honest themselves.

However, there is a catch.

They will try to lie and hide from the truth because they don’t want to hurt anyone, especially their partner. They have a difficult time being honest with themselves and telling the truth about things that are bothering them.

He’ll be able to cope better with his emotions and feel more comfortable talking about them with you. They are very delicate inside and get hurt easily by what people say about them or their loved ones.

While they are very good at understanding people and being sympathetic, sometimes things get out of hand.

So if you want to attract a Cancer man into your life, you need to talk about your feelings and tell him how you’re feeling about things.

You need to be 100 percent honest with him and yourself. They may say something about themselves or about someone else that isn’t true.

You need to be able to tell the truth with a Cancer man without feeling like it’ll hurt them. He needs someone whom he can trust.

If he doesn’t feel like he can trust you, he will have a hard time trusting anyone. If your integrity is weak, that’s like watering down the strength of his trust in you.

When he doesn’t trust you, he’ll make sure that you’re not around.

The best thing to do is to keep the lines of communication open with him at all times. He needs you to be there for him whenever he needs advice or help.

If your integrity is the issue, the easiest way to fix it is by telling him how you feel about things from time to time.

He’s a very sensitive person and he hates secrets so he will appreciate it if you are being truthful.


And there you have it!

These are 15 things that you need to know about a Cancer man and things that you need to do to have him chase you.

As a woman in love, these tips are very doable and you can follow them religiously.

A Cancer man is a good and loving partner that every girl can dream of.

However, be aware that a Cancer man is a very difficult person to get along with sometimes, but he can be so rewarding if you put in the effort and push yourself to go out of your comfort zone.

You’ll need some patience and maybe a little luck, but if it doesn’t work out, we’ll be your shoulder to cry on. 😉

So don’t be afraid to try something new or different!

If it is for someone you love, your Cancer man, it will be worth it.
