The Cancer Woman - A Dating Guide


Dating a Cancer woman? Then prepare to meet the family! Mother, Father, Great Uncle Walter – or maybe just the pet pooch. What you have to realize is it’s not just the Cancer woman you’re dating, but also her entire tribe. Welcome to the biggest homebody of the Zodiac and the most domesticated of all the Star Signs.

Ruled by the Moon – the symbol of motherhood – the Cancer woman possesses an extremely powerful caring and nurturing instinct. Once you’re ‘in’ with her, she’s the date most likely to cook you a meal like Granny used to make, kiss it better when it hurts, and generally take you under her wing.

Does this mean the Cancer woman can seem rather smothering at times? Well, if you hate females constantly clucking round you, you may have a few difficulties adjusting to this Star Sign. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a surrogate mother and have a strong need for love and belonging, you’ll get a lot out of dating a Cancer woman.

Because Cancer is a WATER sign, this woman is a sensitive, cautious creature who relates to the world primarily at an emotional level and can sometimes be hard to coax out of her shell. Since she tends to guard her privacy fiercely, it takes a while to break down her natural inhibitions and win her trust and respect.

How to know when you’ve succeeded? The moment she invites you home! Territorial by nature, Cancerians are quite particular about who they let into their nest. Often a bit insecure when they find themselves on unfamiliar ground, they feel more confident and empowered in their own surroundings. For this reason, cosy stay-in dates tend to suit the Cancer woman best.

Since women born under the sign of Cancer take a cautious, old-fashioned approach to dating, a quick fling isn’t usually their scene. Traditionalists at heart, they have an inbuilt respect for what has gone before and would really prefer everything to stay exactly the same way it has always been. For the Cancer woman, change – especially in her love life – can be quite a scary thing.

Cancer women tend to be big hoarders: they’re very sentimental about objects that remind them of the past and find it hard to let go of belongings they’ve had in their life for a long while. This possessiveness can also extend to dates and lovers they’ve gotten attached to, which means they can sometimes get rather clingy when a relationship threatens to come to an end!
