I've just read back to the original "Cancer Man" topic and now this one.
It's really interesting for me as I am now interested in a Cancer guy. But the situation is complex. We haven't been together, and have met only once (we work together but he lives in another city). Our friendship has developed over the phone and messenger for the last 5 months and we are hooked on each other. I am a scorpio so we are a really good match. He is 6.5 year younger than me but it never seems like it ever, as we get along so well. We really understand each other. I understand that he needs closeness and caring at some times, and space at others, a lot like I do.
Sounds great hey? Well, he actually has a girlfriend of 2.5 years. When I first started working with him we spoke about his situation and he has been unhappy for a long time. However, the Cancer man doesn't tend to move very fast, and especially dealing with conflict. So I've had to be more patient that I thought I could ever be. I know I always have the choice to walk away, but it really is the most amazing connection I've ever had with a guy and I need to know how it may pan out. I will never push him. If I find I can't wait, then I will simply tell him that and leave. He really values honesty and I will give him nothing less.
My advice to anyone getting involved with a Cancer guy is always be yourself, always be honest and never push him. Remember you always have a choice in life, even if it feels like you don't. Oh yeah and you will need the patience of a saint! Good luck.
