Cancer Man and Leo Woman Compatibility

Famous Cancer-Leo Couples:  Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gourmet, Curtis Jackson III and Vivica A. Fox [thanks, Cher], Ringo Starr and Maureen Cox.

Sweet.  Sweet.  Sweet, sweet, sweet.  This relationship is for the candy-hearted Leos, the most childlike Leos, and maybe the luckiest Leos of all.  Deep down inside, every Leo woman wants a man who is stronger than her, but it has to be in the right way.  Cancer’s utterly fatherly patience and soft heart hold the key to her dreams.  This is, in my opinion, probably the best match in the zodiac.  They absolutely bring out the best in one another, while allowing each to play a natural gender role.  Leo, the yang sign, brings out the yang in Cancer, while Cancer, the yin sign, brings out the yin in Leo.

How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Cancer Man:  Here is something that you really need to know about Leo women:  Everybody worships them and wants to bed them, and maybe even wed them, but nobody … nobody … ever listens to them with sympathy.  Somehow they are always expected to be regal, dignified, completely prepared, immaculately manicured, in complete control of the situation, and ready at a moment’s notice.  Nobody ever seems to realize that they have down days, vulnerabilities, and wounds like the rest of us.  That’s where you, dear Cancer man, come in.  At the slightest hint of your natural empathy, she will curl up at your feet and purr.  Continue to show sympathy for her problems and then appreciate how much responsibility she carries so gracefully. I promise you she will eat our of your hand.

How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Leo Woman:   You have to tone it down a little bit from limelight to starlight.  He’s a moon creature after all.  You can’t come at him with your headlights straight on.  Show a little vulnerability.  You’ll have to risk taking a chance on seeming weak, but that’s just the way you’ll find out how strong and protective he really is.  Give him a chance.  No one will ever be more patient, kind, nurturing and caring about you.  It’s genuine.  Keep the glitzier, more aggressive aspects of your act out of the arena to bring out the best in him.  In other words, turning down the volume just a little bit pays off.

Degree of Romance:  If you think of Cinderella up on top of a music box with the handsome Prince Charming, this gives you an idea of the romantic energy of this combination.  Cancer will win Leo heart in hand, body and soul, by extended acts of kindness and understanding.  Leo will delight Cancer because she demands that he act like a Prince, so she brings out his manliness.  These two will relate to each other in a beautiful circle of love, each perched on a pedestal that is polished daily.

Degree of Passion:  The combination of Cancer and Leo brings out the childlike aspects of both signs where passion has not yet entered the picture, which is a sort of Garden of Eden feeling of innocence and trust.  Cancer absorbs the passion that Leo is capable of.  It kind of dissipates somewhere, but that’s okay, they won’t miss it.  Holding hands in front of the fire and strolling along the beach at sunset makes them that happy.

Degree of Friendship:   These two are each other‘s best, best friends.  Think of the six of cups card in the Tarot deck adorned with an image of two little children lovingly offering each other  a sip of the chalice.  These two go everywhere together in spirit, have no secrets, and trust like children.  They play carefully with each other’s hearts.

Degree of Marriage:   This is an ideal combination for marriage.  You’d think Leo would get bored with Cancer, but he fulfills so many of her unspoken needs that it can last forever.  He has the inside track to her soul.

Progression of Relationship:  Cancer is a cardinal sign, which means he will be in control and knows what to do.  Cancer will slowly and carefully guide the couple through the steps of courtship, dotting all the appropriate i’s and crossing all the appropriate t’s until they reach the end of the road — matrimony.  Cancer will make sure that the trip is simple, comfortable, cozy, and sweet.  Leos feel uncharacteristically relaxed and “handled.”

Sex:  Cancer men are wonderful lovers because they are so in touch with the other person’s feelings.  There is a natural affinity between these two signs as they both want to come from the heart where sex is concerned.  It is sometimes not recognized the importance that trust plays in an intimate relationship, but it is critical for satisfaction and fulfillment.  The trust factor between these two may eventually reach 100%.  Isn’t that everyone’s dream?

When It’s Over:   Cancer will never end the relationship but will try to nurture and placate Leo.  If Leo is absolutely implacable about something, then Leo will have to end it.  Cancer will take it like a man.  He had an exit plan all along just because it’s good insurance.  Even after it‘s over, Ms. Leo  will remember his love protected her like an umbrella on a rainy day.  If she ever needs anything in the future, he’ll be right there no matter what paths his life has taken.  This combination offers True Love.

Our Rating: 10/10

    im a cancer male and 2 of my 3 serious relationships were leos, im 24. Its true that we are very good looking and manipulative, i get what i want and can play any girl like a fiddle. In this relationship whoever cares the least has the most power, and if thats the cancer its not looking too good for you!

  • shelly says:

    I do agree with the comment from “c”…whomever cares the least has the most power, however sometimes the leo lady plays it to where she wants the Cancer man to think he has the power…and then when the Cancer man see’s that the Leo Lady has caught on and does the same thing, he clearly becomes outrageously jealous and by then it’s too late…alot of damage control needs to be done. The Leo Lady does play hard ball, but what some cancer men need to learn is that the Leo Lady determines the outcome by testing the individual constantly to see where he is coming from and when she determines what his intentions are (*manipulative, games, aloof) it’s too late, she has moved on. I was seeing a cancer man, and he was very manipulative, but very good in bed, but when I broke it off with him (*just to see), he made some crazy story about some off the wall stuff to regain control…again, I needed to understand his mind and what he would do after I broke it off…exactly what I thought he would do; called in two weeks. So the outcome in my head is watch out for him, because he can be very dangerous and in the end I really don’t believe true, deep attraction that turns into love should start out this way. I am very attracted to him, but what every woman wants (disregard the horoscope) is companionship and tenderness.

  • T says:

    Article almost leaves me speechless. (Leo woman here) Leo women…. Attention does follow us, our demeanor walks in the room before we do, and men often try and bed/wed us. We know what we like and what we don’t and know what it takes to get it. Cancer men already know this. They see it. They can deal with it. As long as you handle yourself properly. They too seek someone to parade around family and friends. Almost like, “Hey, look at what I got!” But it’s not that simple. They only bring home the best of the best.
    I found a Cancer love. Met years back but time brought us back together. We both were positions where we couldn’t do anything about it in the past. But that first time we met…man… I literally felt my adrenaline starting to pump through my body. I was floored. Made ME nervous! Lol. I can honestly say it was love at first sight. He says the same. (But obviously in much more romantic terms). Then when we were reunited, the world stopped. Instant fireworks. Instant love…all over again. He’s so sweet and romantic. It’s hard for me to accept that man feelings are so strong (and is admitting to it with no hesitation). He can read my thoughts. He knows everything I want to say before I say it. He tells me all the right things. I fell hard for this one…
    He’s strong. DEFINTE protector. Love it! Can keep up in the bedroom. He’s funny. Not HaHa funny. LMFAO funny. He can tell me he loves me just by touching me. Looking deep into my eyes and squeezing me so tight. *sigh* He really is everything a Leo woman needs. I am really anticipating what the future has in store for us. I think he’s the one.

  • Dziewczyna says:

    How about Everyone just stops this ” who ever cares least has the power in the relationship” ordeal,what kind of a relationship is that anyway.

    I recently met a Cancer man on my deployment, and I never had a man make me feel this way in 26 years of my entire life. I feel like an innocent child picking flowers for boy i have a crush on. Supposedly I make him feel the same from what he says. His deployment is over and i go back in 4 months. I don’t know what the future has in store, but our friendship became somewhat of a fairytale, deep in my heart, I think he is the one, time will tell. So love freely and give yourselves completely, and most important of all….listen to your heart, it is the window to your soul’s desires.

  • zoe says:

    TRUE TRUE 1000 times tru my cancer love was breathtaking like when the man knows EXACTLY what to do and doesnt have to say a word. he knew my secrets even the ones i was too ashamed to admitt even to myself. Cancer and Gemini men i havefound know us (leo woman) but cancers are much more sweet (or seem to be) thengemini males but watch out all of that sweet can go right out the door and you will SEE the cold and still be saying your not doing this .. right?? put it this way i am a tru “wont dial ur number into u’ve phoned me twice sent a sweet text and left a message leo” but my cancer love could have called me a stalker (shame) i was soo mystified by this man wow! the way we held eachother!! but cancer men are LIARS!!!!!! and i hate to make general staments but they are and they do it as they seem to do everything else…. effortlessly be careful

  • Vmarcel says:

    I am a young cancer man, and I am seeing a leo woman. We have been seeing each other(not like a relationship) for about 3 months so far, and all i can say is what a ride it has been. I believe Cancer and Leo have qualities that both can learn from if they’re willing to compromise. As a cancer though I feel like a lot of my feelings are in disarray when she talk about her past relationships, sometimes in detail when I ask. All of them still contact her every now and then, and she likes to mention how they still want to get her back. I’ve only had one previous relationship before her and it only lasted 2 months and it can not compare to the experience I have with this leo woman.

    Right now I’m being the man she want me to be, and I want to be in a relationship with her, but she tells me she is not ready. So should i control myself and hold back, or keep my feelings going and hope for the best?

  • LEOness says:

    Cancer males correct me if I’m wrong but this is my experience :
    Yes, Cancer is the most affectionate man I’ve ever met. I’ve had hugs from countless people, but they never felt the way his did. Something about me in his arms had me thinking we were key and lock. His quiet perseverance had me impressed, because other guys who liked me normally gave up on me much more quickly. He, Cancer, didn’t, and I was smitten. As all things however, what seemed so perfect was too good to be true. Cancer knows what women want; therefore, he gives it to you ( — and many others of course). However, you’ll never hear that from him. He’ll always have you thinking that you’re special and he’s only thinking of you. Try confronting him on any of his BS when you realize that you aren’t so special after all, and see how easily he turns it around. Cancer was a great liar and manipulator. Perfect at face value but very deceiving. I was so wrapped up in him that I never saw the warning signs I was given. Actually, scractch that. I chose to ignore them because I was hoping I was wrong. How could someone who seemed so perfect be so wrong? Eventually I came to too many realizations that Cancer was not the person he was selling himself as, and I had to let it go. I didn’t really let it go, but at least he thought so. Let’s just say it has been over 2 years since we’ve spoken or made eye contact, and as of recently I’m finally depleted of 99% of the feelings I had for Cancer. It took two years and I still don’t understand him, but I’ve chosen to move forward. He sure does know how to side-step his way into your heart and refuse to let go, but it’s not love. I don’t know what it is.

  • LeoLady says:

    I always seemed to have been attracted to Cancer men and now I know why!!!
    I’m a positive Leo that would want a positive Cancer.

    After reading these comments, we have to remember there are negative people in any zodiac sign that like to play with others feelings because their nature/environment probably messed them up.

    I hope to be with a Cancer man.

  • Lynn says:

    Help people..Please!!!!!

    I had a long distance relationship with a cancer man for a year.. he is very sweet & charming, mature & honest.. never lied to me.. We had a fight & we kinda broke it off so I’m afraid he doesn’t trust me anymore.. I love him so much & I believe he does too..

    ( He’s very upset with me coming to his town but not seeing him..
    I do come there for work, when I called him once while there, he seemed overwhelmed & not enthusiastic enough, so I stopped calling & waited for him to come to my town.. its all my pride I know..:(

    I’ma leo/rat woman & he’s a cancer/dog man..14 years older than me..

    Please any advise how to get him back..????

  • stacy says:

    I am a leo woman starting a new relationship with a cancer man. Everything has went really fast but it has all just felt right. To me he is perfect. Like the article says leos are often misunderstood, but he and I both understand each other from every perspective. We have been together just over a month and I feel so much love compassion understanding and trust. I love my cancer man more than either of those crazyy libra men before him. For the first time in my life I feel like I want to be with him forever. (And I am easily bored)

  • Julie says:

    This is for Lynn… You want him back? As painful as it may be-put away that pride for just a minute, let yourself be vunerable, and just call…

  • raine says:

    hi there, i met a cancer guy a month ago and we have fell in love, all just feel so great….cancer man knows all my needs, EXACTLY what to do and the compassion and love he shows for me is the crispy part of this relationship. But i think its too good to be true, am quite sure he might be deceiving coz 24×7 sweet n loving nature is not feasible,, atleast in this era!

  • Kenny says:

    Cancer men are generally loyal one woman men. Don’t try to play games or manipulate a cancer, because we see right through it, and even if we don’t, cancers are known for holding grudges. The only problem is that we’re extremely possessive and jealous. As long as he trusts you, he will do anything for you. For all those who had a problem with the cancer, it all depends on his upbringing and the relationship with his mother. Pay attention to how he treats his mother and your family. Because if he loves your family…

  • sureya says:

    Oi! Im in quite a fix. I am a Leo woman and a couple of weeks ago I met a Cancer man who is 10 years older than me and of a different nationality (also loving and working in his home country, on the other side of the world!). From the moment I met him I felt a frisson of excitement and by the end of the evening I was convinced he was the man I wanted but was not sure I was what he was looking for. Plus I had heard he had recently broken up with his girlfriend. He is so different from the type of man I usually go for and the only thing I can think to explain why I want him is the way he makes me feel. He is a gentleman, and one of very few people I think I would be comfortable handing my life over to. I am also very protective of him and I got very jealous the one time he spoke about his ex- but of course my Leo pride wouldn’t let me show it. So I don’t see him for a couple of days and I hear he has been asking about me. I make myself available to go on a group outing with him and a few other people. Being the friendly Leo I am, I interact with the other people in the group and to be honest, this other guy, who I am completely not interested in, was paying me much more attention than my intended and I enjoyed it! My cancer man’s mood changed and he practically ignored me for the rest of the time we were there. He hangs back as everybody is leaving, and I decide to hang back too and all of a sudden he is all romance and holding hands. fast forward to the next day, he is now aloof and its driving me crazy, so I decide to ignore him and he is like a puppy in my lap. Now I am REALLY confused! Whats this?! I pay him attention, he ignores me, I ignore him he vies for my attention. Needless to say, it was a week of mixed signals and by the time he left I was an emotional mess. He has not called and I wondering if I should be the one to do so. I am not sure if he has thought it over and decided it would not be worth it considering we are on two different sides of the world but I cannot stop thinking about him and looking at his picture. I have dated many handsome, successful and kind men but none of them make my heart beat quite like this idiot does. what do i do? At the least I need closure, because I don’t think I can move on not knowing what could have been. *sigh*

  • c says:

    I love my cancer man. I seem to always have errors in my make up. Please will you forgive me, because you are the only man for me and you know it.

  • TypicalLeoGirl says:

    I’m a Leo woman and I’ve been dating a Cancer man for only one year but whenever I see him I still feel like the very first day we met. We obviously like each other very much. Sometimes he’s teasing me just to make me smile afterwards. But it’s like an on-and-off-relationship. We’re still good friends but I can see the desire in his eyes whenever he looks at me. It has been like this for 5 years now and I don’t like that this will ever change. But honestly I don’t know if he will get me back so easily because he once hurt me very badly. He broke up with me without even telling me that. I heared that from his cousin. But I won’t hold a grudge against him and forgive him easily because the way he acts with me makes me able to forgive him almost everything.

  • Alana says:

    TypicalLeoGirl :
    He broke up with me without even telling me that. I heared that from his cousin. But I won’t hold a grudge against him and forgive him easily because the way he acts with me makes me able to forgive him almost everything.

    No woman should accept a man back who doesn’t have the balls to end a relationship in person. Lady, get some self-respect. I know what its like to get broken up with a cancer, he did it in person and I know he was hurting when he did it. I took him back ONLY because he grew as a person. “typicalLeoGirl” I’m telling you, you are NOT dating this guy.

    When you have a boyfriend YOU KNOW IT.

    That is a message for EVERYONE. If you aren’t sure you are in a relationship, you aren’t in one.

    Forgiving for everything is not good, you need to hold your ground, guys want what they cannot have. They will never admit how much they think about women. I have to tell you that most men want sex, and they can SEE RED until they get it. They will flirt, they will play with you, but the man has to be sure, or he will not commit. When a man is dedicated to you, you know it.

  • MR says:

    I’m a Leo woman and have been with my Cancer man 7 years, married to him for 4. He is wonderful. Definitely the protector I have always wanted. Im in my 50′s now and had to kiss a lot of frogs to find him. Most of my past relationships had been with Pisceans who are dreamy, romantic and would put me on a pedestal. Being a true Leo that was the attraction, but over time I found them to be a real let down and bit wet! My cancer man is caring and loving and I am so happy to have found the one. This horoscope website has been the most accurate in detailing compatibility for star signs I have ever come across.

  • Roy says:

    Well , after reading all that every one had to say I feel mostly Leo women have populated while cancer men dint rack their mind at it . ( me a shy pussycat as well ) Cancers men are least botherd ?? Women .. shake u and dry youself off the water element .. we cant sink into it . We do that all the time !! the world might be our doormat ,we can fight the lesser mass like a queen and protect ourself .. but once we go off our guard we are weak on our knees for love .. while peasents come and manipulate our royal selves .

    You sound like a douche bag. I hope u grow up soon or at least experience a woman playing u just like that same little fiddle u used to play them.

  • cancer female says:

    well reading all this sounds pretty bad,im a cancer female and i do admit but dont like to that i am senstive but i have a real big big careing heart and i dot think all cancer me are the same being one i know we can trick u but sometimes we do it so u will feel less hurt in a way,so we dont really have to hurt u that bad but im the type of person where if i really want to say something to u i will….. :) :) :0 oh and yez i am very funny!!!!

  • Ashley says:

    I am a leo girl & I’m seeing a cancer guy; I have a daughter whom is 18 months he already treats her like it is his own; we’ve only been seeing eachother for a week (as friends) all of this is sooo truue it is crazy!! He is so caring & that is just what I always needed as a leo (attention and lots of love) but I would never admit that.

  • PrettyPepper says:

    I am a leo woman seeing a male cancer now for about 2 weeks. Well we mostly talked on the phone but went to dinner but he talks to me all day long. He went out of town for about 4 days so we are to go out this weekend since he is back. He has already told me that he loves me. I dont believe him 100% but feel that he has really connected to me and trusts me in some kinda way. He is very sweet! I am a little taken aback by his forwardness but there is a sense of innocence to it. I however broke up with my ex of 9 years a few months so i feel the need to take my time. I do feel like we could have a long term relationship and even marriage. I just have to move at my own pace and not his. So if he will respect that, then we have a chance. I know that he is very sensitive and needs love like a baby. Its differnt. I have dated one other cancer, a boy i knew all of my life and at 21 we dated. I still love him although he is married now. :(
    He is the only ex that i would run back to if i had the chance. I just know that the connection is like electric and automatic. My first cancer, i broke his poor little heart. He has forgiven me since, because we were friends since 1st grade, so friendship came first. I just hope that this new cancer can be as sweet, honest and caring as the first one. Wow. that was long wasnt it?

  • brittany says:

    My last relationship with a cancer man ended up in me getting pregnant. lol. He wasnt loyal though and we split it off. Im a leo btw. Now ive been dating another cancer for a good month or two and its great so far. he is super nice and makes me feel loved. NOT ALL CANCER MEN ARE THE SAME GIRLS! you really gotta find the right one, dont be possesive and say he cant hangout certain people they dont like to be tied down. just trust them.

  • LEO WOMEN says:

    I am a Leo women and I’m in love with a Cancer man. We dated when I was 15. Im 22 now, and he has come back into my life. He’s told me so many things since he gotten back in touch. He brought up the conversation about “US” and told me that he never thought of us as being “broken up” and has tried to find women like me but wasn’t me. We talked all night and during that time he held me close to him. When we kissed, *SIGH* it took my breath away. He completes me and I completes him! Now since he’s back I cant get him off my mind! He’s already lied to me, promising me things, but I told him I don’t need those things, only him! He texts me the beautiful things like I’m his queen etc. He really makes me fantasize about being his wife and having his baby! I’m in love with this man, but he hasn’t texted or called me for 2 days! I’m still caught up in his high, but I’m feeling needy by calling and texting him! I hate feeling needy! He told me that he loves me and he spent a lot of nights wasted and the only memories he has of 7 years since I’ve been gone was me! Someone please help me because he makes me weak to my knees and I can’t see myself without him!

  • Molly Mar says:

    I am a Leo female August 1st. Typical to a tee Leo woman I am 24 about 5 months ago- a turn of events as fate would have it led me to Cory a cancer male 22 born July 13th. I saw him
    Across the room and suddenly felt like I didn’t know myself at all. I became extremely nervous which does not happen to a stage born Leo. But something about his eyes and his smile — felt like even gravity couldn’t weight my feet to the earth. Almost captivated by the strength emulating from his body. He is not one I would have ever seen myself with not possibly given circumstances even second glanced at.

    Here’s why I am posting.. He and I have had almost a whimsical but wishy washy relationship- neither one of us boldly comitted but cannot stay away from each other. He and I have not been intimate more than kissing (which holy cow is it passionate) a kind of kiss that has been portrayed on the silver screen. I have been up and down in my passed 3 relationships all of them lasting 2 yrs plus– I always felt as if my significant other was misunderstanding me on almost all levels except intimacy. I am hard to handle I am stubborn extroverted loud and at times I am a ball of emotion that is to much for one to handle. Some of these relationships were so tumultuous thy actually led me to be unfaithful in a sense. In the passed 2 years I have been broken hearted lonely and so withdrawn from
    The messiness of the breakups I couldnt even feel anything with anyone– anything of substance Atleast. Until I met Cory back in end of September. There is a naturalness to us almost like its meant to be.

    But the hang up- he was recently hurt by his ex girlfriend of 5 years they broke up almost a year ago. He is on one hand clearly falling for me — but so scared he won’t let it go any further than whatever we are right now.

    I have told him countless times that I only want that chance to make him happy and honestly if he gave me that chance I would marry him. Have a life and a family. I actually cherish him as if he was a golden artifact rarest of its kind … Sounds silly. And this may come across as arrogant but Leo women have a variety of options every day. There is alway someone trying to bed/wed us… But we are not that easy to tame. Which is why I haven not married yet. I’ve been proposed the idea once or twice. But in my heart I knew I be settling because I felt something bigger and better waiting for me.

    And to be honest I would wait fr him a thousand years if that’s what it took to prove to him that my heart is at his will. I have told my cancer this– tht I will wait for him.. And all of it will fall into it’s riteful place. He’s almost like my gift he has showed me without even trying that love does not have to be about hurt and loss or sex and complexities. I want to be better because he makes me want to be the best I can be. No one has ever even made me question my way of doing things or my stubborn showy antics. My need for male attention and the thrill I get out of sinking my claws into prey. Instead of the roaring charging domineering lioness I am — I feel like a young clueless cub at his feet. Vying to make him purr back as weird as that may sound — I always feel like the stronger sex in a relationship maybe because of my life hardships and becoming a very single mother at 17. I’ve had no choice but to move forward and protect
    Myself and my son. But with him I would completely take the role of woman with him. That is something I never thought even remotely possible.

    I am completley in love with this cancer man. And he has become the absolute object
    Of affection in my eye.

    Where you invest your love — you invest your life. For him I would put all my chips down on the table … I have already made the decision to stop seeing other people and remain faithful in a hopeful idea of
    Relationship that is not yet foregoing.

    He is my awakening. I feel like he could be the one.

  • H says:

    I, a leo woman, was married to two cancers and both marriages were the marriages from hell.

    The first husband was impotent, stole my money, left with it and was totally unromantic. His parents told me later that he had done the same thing with other women before me.

    The second husband was the most violent person I’ve ever met. In the years of our marriage I had to get help from abuse agencies because of emotional and physical abuse. He was extremely tight with money and tried to make me pay money to him after the marriage because the house had lost some of its value due to the recession. He was a truly bad person and also had intensive fights and quarrels with about everyone he knew. He had hardly any friends and people always felt awkward around him.

    Two of my friends are leos with cancer husbands and both say they don’t have a romantic bone in their bodies nor are they interested in sex. Many say that cancer men are asexual.

    Never again will I set eyes on a cancer man.

  • Ryan says:

    Ladies, ladies, ladies… Cancerian men are slow to love. 1) It’s a defense mechanism. We are very insecure regarding many things. If we profess our love too early and you pull back that will hurt and possibly destroy the relationship. 2) Our slow approach to love may not even be attributed to us having had a bad relationship. I know that I like to make things special. He might be saving the “I love you” for later so he can make it amazing. I know I would. We’re romantics! Also, Cancerians look to mate for life. We are family men, we require stability in a relationship. I know that in my heart I want the best for my future kids. My parents had a divorce. So that bred caution into me. I wouldn’t want to marry someone if I thought they might eventually end it. So to protect everyone (kids, wife, self) we take our time. And for the cynics out there who are hating us Cancers, you have no one to blame, but yourselves. You should have gotten to know them better. Cancers are super sensitive so if their childhood was traumatic it will change them for the worse if they don’t deal with it. So next time get to know him. As for me, I have a high libido. Remember too, that Cancers are 50/50 creatures and Leos can tend to give less than they get. I knew a Leo woman who was a friend of mine. And to me a friend looks out for you. I gave her everything I could and she took and took and took. Never did she give back. She had to have everything her way and would never go out of her way to make me happy. I knew her for a year and when my cat developed a life threatening disease I had nowhere to turn (or so I thought). I am the kind of guy that will give generously if a friend or loved one is in need. I paid huge amounts of money to my brother to see him continue through college, when he needed it. I expect nothing less. She couldn’t even pay that. She could live a life of luxury, but when it came to helping others she wouldn’t lift a finger. I don’t judge all Leos based on her actions, though. If you love a Cancer man here’s what you have to do: be sure you give as good as you get. The fast lane to losing a Cancer man is if he feels you are a parasite. He wants the best from life, for his kids, for his wife and lastly for himself. Remember, as Cancers we need reciprocation and we have insecurities. Sacrifice shows that you love us.

    This totally describes the dynamic of the newfound trust and devotion now in my life. He’s a definite quintessential Cancer man with his loving doting nature and pressing need to provide. He definitely worries about other men who pursue me. It still does take some getting used to-having someone that has the same level of investment for your best interest if not even more than you do. There’s nothing that will cause him to leave me. If it does end he will still be there for me.

    I have been dating with a cancer man for 7 months who is much younger than me. For a year we were just like friends.
    One day we stated dating but I couldn’t figure out if he really liked me or not. And it’s my paranoia but I was always denied my feeling for him due to age difference.
    The other thing is his tempo is too slow.. He is the sweetest man I ever met but he is not showing anything about his love. But every time we get together, he just melts me so tenderly.. I don’t know really what to do. I guess I am in love.
    I don’t know this is just who he is… or it’s characteristic of cancer man. Our relationship is still little open. I know we are very much attracted to each other but he hasn’t told me I am the only one.
    Is this something I should worry about?

    I love what you say and so agree with you, thats just the fact and i really think you are cool =)

  • ConfusedLeoWoman says:


    I am a leo woman and I met a very kind, sweet, outgoing and fun cancer man a month ago. I had disastorous relationships to two cheating and insensitive Sagittarius’ men back to back and this cancer man came out of no where with such a gentle and innocent spirit and boy is he refreshing……

    BUT here’s the problem……

    I can’t tell how much he really likes me. When we are together its magical, so much fun and perfect but then when its over its like its over. I may get a text here and there but I don’t really hear from him that much and then he pops up out of nowhere with all these great plans for us. And he always plans something romantic and fun but I’m getting kind of irritated because I almost feel like he disappears on me. When we are together he is always confessing how he feels so comfortable with me and how I am a breath of fresh air but then he leaves and its like it was just a dream. We haven’t had sex yet and he says thats fine with him for now because he geniunely enjoys talking to me and he says he enjoys the kissing and caressing even though we dont go all the way.

    But this worries me. I wonder why it seems like he disappears. It is definitely keeping me on my toes. I’m a very attractive woman and I get tons of attention even when we are together. Most men tend to almost stalk me when we date but this one…its like he sweeps me off my feet and disappears and then comes back just before I start to think to find a new interest.

    WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK IS GOING ON HERE?????…..FYI: I am a few years old than him.

  • Lyst says:

    A lot of this particular article is bullcrap. I was in a relationship with a cancer man for six years. He cheated on me, left me 7 months pregnant with no warning, kept his emotions bottled up and exploded, controlled me through money, is greedy, selfish, and manipulative. He lied and pushed the relationship forward into marriage then claimed he hadn’t even loved me for half of our six yrs together. He was NOT good in bed.

    He cared far too much what people thought of him and couldn’t have cared less about my opinion. I wanted him to be a man and stand up for himself when people he cared about wronged him and he never would, so I didn’t/couldn’t respect him much. And he only ever did something when it was good, better, or convenient for HIM. He still operates on this level, even regarding our child.

  • Roxy says:

    Oh, this so true. He had me from day one and knows it. Teases me sexually but won’t let it go further yet. We are not even in a formal relationship, and since I am single I should want the other men who I attract as a LEO woman. I find it entertaining that I attract these other men, but all I want is him.

    I am not quite sure why I continue to wait for him, but I will. It has got to be him and no one else.

    I think I need some serious help or just him to take me in his arms and make the world go away.

  • T & T says:

    My boyfriend and I have been together 6 months. At first I wasn’t sure whether or not we were even going to be in a relationship. Our first “date” wasn’t supposed to be a date but we enjoyed ourselves. After that day I started spending the night in his room (dorm) but we never actually had sex. The first night after our date I was convinced he only wanted to have sex with me but he didn’t.. In fact he drove me back to my room. After awhile of me spending the night however I wondered why he hadn’t tried anything or at least kissed me and he said “because I enjoy your company.”

    This is sooo very true. My Cancer man is a sweetheart!! He once walked to get me some Midol when I was cramping and he car was broken.. :) He’s my everything and I’m more than confident we’ll be together for a very long time. He’s told me he loves me and that he WILL marry me one day and I know he means it!!
    I love my Travis! Our bond is strong and playful, childlike and innocent. He is so special that I actually lost my virginity to him. I love him sooooo much.

  • Lovejones 313 says:

    Sooo confused….Please help!!…I’m a Leo woman and I’ve been seeing a cancer man for a month. He’s very sweet and has told me what he wanted and that he wanted to take things slow and I’m like Kool so I advised him what I wanted and what I was trying to work on as a Leo woman bc we can be very aggressive and not so submissive. He understood however if I call or text him he might reply or he may not but when we see each other it’s always right so I don’t know if he’s playing to see how I’ma handle it but I’ve been very very patient but I’m about to let the lip out….what u think???

    I believe there is the same persons that post the crap about us being liars all around the web. All i want to say to you, and those of you that reads the comments – There is more to it than just the sunsign. Like the rest of the planets in the chart…. Don’t judge all cancers to be liars.. please. That is just ignorant.

  • JBD says:

    Lost and need help please! (would like all the Leo womans out there to comment please)

    I am a Cancer and the article above describes very well the Leo lady I know.
    I met her not long time ago and things were going really well.
    its been so long I wasn’t that happy. (think also for her but not sure)
    we did outside activities with friends, went on couple of dates, talked on the phone and got her surprises/gifts that she really loved.
    I like her a lot and I know she likes me too because the way she is comfortable and opens up to me and the way she is around me. I was very happy and she was too, (I felt it and she mentioned it couple of times)

    that night felt a sudden change. Felt as if she changed her mind on something. something was wrong. I don’t know what.
    the next day I didn’t bother her. she had some plans with friends and all. and didn’t hear nothing from her not even a text message.
    tried to call her in the evening. she answered. she said im visiting friends and she will call me after.
    after couple of hours still no sign. So called her twice like 11pm but no answer. Then sent her a text message saying to let me know if im bothering her or don’t want me to call her… also said I know you are big girl and that I like that and respect that. But im just worried.
    So she replied right a way that she is so sorry and that she is with friends and the phone was away. she said she will call me once she is back home.
    An hour later she finally called. We spoke for an hour.
    she started saying that she feels bad cause she thinks she did something wrong cause a friend of her came with his father to put her winter tires on her car and that she wasn’t there. Told her not to feel bad because they asked her not to come cause they understood she was busy with friends.
    Then she said she had good time with her friends and everything.
    Then I told her I feel something is wrong. Plus nothing from u not even a message today
    She said she don’t really know and that she thought she was ready for a relationship
    she also opened up and mentioned she is getting undesired calls from her ex
    but she said it’s over long time ago between them since last Christmas plus everyone knows from family and friends from both sides that it is over also
    in return I also opened up and said that im experiencing the same situation that’s its over with my ex long time ago (since Christmas also) and everyone knows (my family and friends)
    Then asked if she want to know what I think it might be wrong. And she said yes
    so I told I feel you have your guards up high and you are afraid to let go and get hurt.
    she said yes and repeated the same thing
    so I said so im right and guess you just need time.
    then she said don’t think she needs time.
    That’s where im lost. Why would she say that? She don’t really like me?

    She also asked me if we will see each other or you don’t want.
    I said yes of course we will… why not… is there is something I don’t know I asked her.
    and she said no.
    Im analyzing all this and im guessing she wants to stop seeing each other for now
    I really sad and upset
    don’t know what to do
    feel there was a big smile on her face and it just disappeared
    and sad part we didn’t even complete a full month! Sudden happiness then suddenly vanished
    I know she is sincere on everything. She was honest.
    she even told me that she saw the phone ringing and she didn’t answer
    she tried to explain why. But I stopped her and told her it doesn’t matter. U didn’t feel like answering. Its ok. Im happy u told me and that u didn’t lie about it.
    Please help! Really need help :(
    Thank you for reading

    Oh god, after reading this, a deep sigh within my Leo heart. I am so in love with my twinsoul who is cancer, but we have not yet kissed or made love. I’m so lost, and the ridiculous thing is that us Leo’s have always known what to do. At the same time I’m grateful because I know I’ll find him over and over….

    My name is Mandy laira am from USA. i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man DR.EKPEN brought my husband back to me, i had three lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.that’s why i want to say a big thank you to DR.EKPEN spiritual temple. This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him

  • jasmine says:

    what alot of bullshit this is. soooo not true. i’m a leo woman and was with a cancer man for 5 years of hell. total waste of time. i fancied him for years before we got together and thought we had this amazing bond and chemistry..well that didn’t last long. when we got together after 6 months we never had fun anymore, I’d catch him texting other girls, he’de lie about many things and attacked me. he smashed my things up, called me horrible names, said i was stupid, short tempered and violent, distant, manipulitive and never genuine or loyal.he would look at other woman if we was out. one time we went for a meal and while i went to the toilet he asked the waitress for her number, one of my friends that worked there told me about it and when i confronted him he told me my friend is a liar. i put up with it for 2 years until enough was enough, he was never going to be the same person i knew before he didn’t love me and he wasn’t going to change. his muscles and looks where beautiful but his personality wasn’t. now i’m married to a taurus man with a lovely son and a beautiful daughter. i have never been happier and my man has the kindest heart and is so loyal. i couldn’t wish for anything better
