When he finds the partner of his dreams — which may take awhile as the Crab is rather picky — the Cancer man will throw himself into the romance of the situation, buying flowers, riding white horses, and slaying metaphorical dragons for them.
The traditional side of this man means that he will shower his partner with thoughtful gifts, wine and dine them in the best restaurants, and try to grant their every wish.
A Cancer man is reserved when he first meets someone new and it will take many more meetings before you can get close to him.
Waving his pincers around but really using them only for self-defense, the Crab will retreat into his shell if he feels threatened.
His is a sensitive soul, so handle him with care and be mindful of hurting his feelings.
He will take the garbage out, fix that wobbly shelf, navigate on road trips, and kill bugs for his partner, and most important of all he will do it all without being asked.
His loyalty and keen attention to the needs and wants of his lover make the Crab one of the best partners of the zodiac.
Most Cancer men are also very family-oriented, and will want to set up a home filled with the patter of tiny feet.
