She is very sensitive, emotional, loyal and loves to cling to her partner. She wants a family, or is tied up to her root family. Many times she turns into a caregiver to her partner, and forgets to be a lover too. It is easy to get into her heart by showing kindness to others, especially the young or the old.
The cliché is that a Cancer man is tied up to his mother, and that is partially true. The way into his heart is by giving him a sense of a family, and a deep emotional connection. He is also easily won by home cooked food.
To be in a relationship with a Cancer is to get used to changing moods, and a feeling of constant emotional exchange, nurturing to a point of suffocation, yet very capable and practical when it comes to safety.
In their own eyes Cancers get along with everybody, but in real life they do connect better with the Earth signs Taurus and Virgo, and even manages to find a way to compliment the Capricorn though it doesn’t come easily. With the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces the relationship is deep and long lasting, the Cancer likes the air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) but they may feel trapped in a relationship with the Cancer. The fire signs Sagittarius, Aries and Leo do not get along well with the Cancer.
