When you start dating someone new and promising, he’s probably on his best behavior — but what’s he really like in a committed relationship, once the initial bloom of romance wears off? Without a crystal ball — or an army of honest and talkative exes on your side — it can be hard to tell at first what kind of husband or boyfriend your man might make. But there is hope. Just like buying a new car, when it comes to men, you have to consider carefully what you’re in the market for. Is it that hot, zippy little red number, a roomy, dependable minivan, or maybe the oversized SUV that bellows, “I’m the boss of the highway”? Even if you don’t carry a laminated make-or-break relationship list in your wallet, you can still head into the dating game armed with important information — and all you need is his Sun sign. Knowledge is power. Read your guy’s sign to find out all about what kind of mate he’ll make.
The Cancer man isn’t one for casual flings or dating several people at once. He’s much more comfortable with true intimacy and long-term commitment with just one lucky person. If you date for longer than a few months, it’s likely that he can see a future with you. As his lover, you’ll enjoy his nurturing care, including excellent meals — many Cancer men are great cooks — and a protective urge that easily extends to children and pets. This is the man who will walk you to your front door at the end of your first date, and later celebrate moving in together by springing for a top-quality home security system. This family-oriented man makes an extra nurturing and loving partner — as long as he feels safe, appreciated and loved in return. But Cancer men are famously moody. If he feels criticized, insecure or underappreciated, he’ll withdraw into his shell, and it could be quite difficult to draw him out again. Since Cancer is deeply emotional, you’ll see those moods even more if you share a home together. If you can get him to open up about his deep feelings, he’ll be better for it.
