Oh, the Cancer. Sensitive, emotional and protective, this Crab will defend a lover to the end, comfort when comforting is in order, offering complete and utter support. On one hand, Cancer's high level of sensitivity can be very endearing and reassuring; on the other, it's important to watch what is said around them, because one slight move in the wrong direction could leave a Cancer feeling hurt, left out or incredibly insecure.
Cancers love to be at home with loved ones, which is great for a romantic relationship. They don't need the glitz and glamour of love to feel satisfied. Imagination in love and intimacy in romance definitely won't be a problem to maintain, and they are very accepting of others' differences. But before committing to a Cancer, it's most important to make sure they've cut all ties with past relationships, or else they may still be emotionally stuck there. For them, the past is hard to break from due to their attachment of what was.
The Crab insists on feeling self-protected at all times, so trust and comfort must be built before they can pop out of their shells for someone else. While it may take a little more time for Cancers to open up and express their deeper feelings, once they do, they have a heart to call home.
