Cancer Woman Personality


She’s also the first water sign which makes her sensitive and emotional. In relationships, they tend to get clingy to their partners and if they can, then they would follow them to the ends of the earth and hell as well, but they won’t ever live without them. This also means that if you’re okay with a slightly clingy partner, she’d make for a perfect mate who takes care of you 24*7.

They might get insecure and let you know as well, but they’re not the ones to fight as they’re too shy to even initiate contact with someone they like. They will, however, try to convey their discomfort as coolly as possible. They have unwavering trust on the abilities of their life partner and in any tough situation, they would naturally assume, expect and wait for you to take the lead and resolve it.

  • Her sense of security might come from having him physically close and holding her in his warm & reassuring embrace through good times and bad.

Behavioral constitution of a Cancer woman

You cannot expect a Cancer woman to open up to you in the first few meetings. She is very protective of her emotions and will guard them until she has developed a certain level of trust in you.

  • She is soft-spoken and shy and takes time opening up, however once she’s sure of you, she’ll want you to be the one she talks her heart out to.
  • She’s conservative in her outlook towards romance but expects a lot of sensual expressions of love which binds her to you such as a loving embrace, feeling safe in your arms, holding hands as a sense of ‘being there’, physical closeness, sweet nothings while she’s close to you, and assuring forehead kisses or affectionate neck kisses to name a few.
  • She is elegant, soft, and peace-loving but is also passionate and ambitious. She will be a little unpredictable with her constant mood swings but will never harm anyone intentionally as she is deeply concerned about the emotions and sentiments of others.

  • Even then, she’s likely to not show them to you, you’ll have to understand her mood through any change in behavior.
  • She doesn’t get into relationships quickly. She’s shy to open up specifically if she likes you. Only a patient man who can make her feel comfortable, at least, initially, can get seriously involved with her.

Style sense of a Cancer woman

Cancer women in general go for what is comfortable.
