Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether your crush is crushing back on you. After all, many men are notoriously closed-lipped about their feelings, especially when it comes to affairs of the heart. But if you know his Zodiac sign, you have an important key to understanding not just his personality, but his behavior — and his desire nature. Since each Sun sign expresses attraction in its own ways, every man sends out different, individual signals that are unique to his sign. Read your guy’s sign to unlock the mystery of whether or not he’s into you.
Cancer can be difficult to read on lots of levels, including a romantic one. This deeply emotional sign needs to feel safe and secure before he can let his heart be known to the one he admires. And it doesn’t help that the sign of the Crab is famously moody! So figuring out whether he’s into you is about interpreting his actions accurately — namely, his urge to protect what he cares about most. Cancer men show their interest by taking care of the object of their desires, which can manifest in many different ways. Behaviors that might seem a bit patronizing or even overbearing — insisting on walking you to your car, for example, or admonishing you not to lift that heavy box — are actually his attempt to keep you safe. When he makes it clear that he wants to make sure you’re well protected, that’s when you know you truly matter to your Cancer guy.
