Well, I have been on here now reading as much as I can about these Cancer men and their mysterious ways... looks like I have my work cut out for me! It's so funny to read these posts because I am seeing how much of a Crab my Cancer really is! He danced around the possibility of dating for two months, acting as though we were together by being posessive of me and protective, but then as soon as I would do the same he would get upset and say he didn't want to lose his freedom! How crazy and contradictory! It took me going on a trip eight hours away for him to finally realize he wanted to be with me!
I can't believe your Cancer man came back after so long and acted like it had been just the other day! That's how mine is with things. I always joke around and say he operates on "Jim Time" and that 6 hours to the rest of the world is less than 6 minutes to him. I suppose it's the stubborn Taurus in me that doesn't like this change in structure.
I suppose that I will have to understand that to my cancer man thinks he is putting in a good amount of effort. I would get frustrated too if the tables were turned and when I felt like I was doing a lot for him he told me he felt like I was hardly doing anything. I'm guessing it's the nurturing side of me that gets frustrated when he disappears because I want to be able to comfort him and make him feel better when he's upset instead of letting him retreat to his shell. What it looks like I need to realize is that letting him retreat there is going to have to be my way of being there for him. Letting him comfortably have that time, and knowing i'll be there when he comes back. Does it ever get old to be so pursuant of a man? That's a fear of mine in this...
Earlier today he told me that he "has to come up with new ways to mess with me" because I "know too much already" and he "isn't ready for me to read his mind yet." He said it in a friendly manner, but I can see he has some controlling tendencies. He loves to see me get frustrated. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's a test? But he will giggle like a school child when gets my feathers ruffled. I feel like I'm dealing with a child half the time when I'm with him. Is that a typical Cancer thing? I was really surprised though, because he also asked me today how I was feeling. He said "Hey Babe, you seem to be a little stressed lately and I'm wondering if everything is okay. Is there anything bothering you at all?" From what I've gathered this is not a usual Cancer man? I feel like there are more questions than answers about him, but it is definitely part of the intrigue! Even when I answer questions, somehow he answers with another question and manipulates the conversation into something else completely without me realizing it until later! He's a sneaky one!
He gave me his word that we will be seeing each other tonite since he was supposed to last night but got distracted at a social event, so I will have to use this new knowledge to talk to him about this. I'll keep you posted on how everything goes! Thank you for your advice! And I hope all is well with you on your end!
