I've been dating a cancer for 3 years now , I have put up with a lot of hurt feelings off and on during our relationship. He has never been married and has no plans to get married, which is fine Im not ready for that again either. Cancers in my opinion are really good at looking after themselves first, although can be very giving at times, which always kept me coming back.
I think the only reason he has hung with me so long is that I have never pressured him to commit. I know he is not right for me but we have become very close in the last year and he was able to tell me he loves me without being afraid. I'm an Aquairian and if I wasnt so lonesome for a buddy I would have not stuck with him this long , I love him for what he is and figured him out early on but not without some heartbreak along the way. A couple of months ago he moved backed to his hometown because he lost his job. Ever since I moved here he was always there for me , some I really had a hard time saying goodbye and letting go, but I know it is the best thing for me. I just wanted to respond to you because your situation is soooo familiar to me! I feel your frustration,,,,,
