Signs a Cancer Woman Is Falling For You: Keys to Unlocking a Guarded Heart
Coming out of their shell can be a struggle for the sensitive Cancer woman, so when they're in love, one would think that the signs may not be obvious. However, some clear indicators point to a Cancer woman's heart and its secrets.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) women are kind, gentle, and naturally loving, so telling the difference between them being themselves and being in love with you can be challenging. This is even more difficult because Cancer generally keeps their cards close to their chest.
However, even when it comes to this guarded crab, there are some telltale signs that they are falling in love with you, and when you learn to spot them, you'll wonder how you didn't see them before.
Nurturing and Doting
Cancer's are, by their very nature, incredibly nurturing individuals. So, when they begin to fall in love, this quality is amped up by the hundreds. They will bring you lunch at work if they know you forgot to eat, keep in mind your doctor's appointments, bake you cookies, or give you massages.
Emotionally, they will always be there for you, and their keen sensitivity will mean they can predict your needs, sometimes before you even realize what they are.
Emotions and Intuition
Cancer women are highly emotional and intuitive. This can express itself in many ways.
For one, it can bring a sense of emotional maturity and growth to the relationship, as the Cancer woman senses issues and brings them up for resolution quickly and easily.
On the other hand, she can be pretty over-sensitive and insecure when developing solid feelings, especially if you two are not in a committed relationship.
Make it official, and she'll likely calm down...or leave this sensitive being alone.
Romance and Creativity
Cancer women are suckers for romance, and their creative and imaginative nature will help them employ this through exciting and imaginative gestures. While they love romance, cliches are not something they find attractive, as they are not personable enough.
She may write a love poem filled with beautiful imagery and slip it into your pocket as a surprise or plan interesting and intimate dates. She may leave a bunch of sticky notes hidden around your place that list all the reasons she finds you amazing and so much more.
Gentle Physical Affection
When a Cancer woman falls in love, she may begin to express her feelings physically, sometimes even in public, which is strange for this usually guarded star sign.
For the most part, her physical gestures will be sensitive, gentle, and warm instead of fiery or passionate physical exchanges, although that isn't a hard rule. The Cancer woman may be pretty consistent with this gesture and will be consistently physical if she can see and feel you are comfortable with it.
While the Cancer woman may take it slow with moving to the bedroom, it will likely be a sensual experience once she does.
She Comes Out of Her Shell
This is the most significant and obvious sign that the Cancer woman is falling for you.
The crab is usually guarded and doesn't let anyone in. However, if they begin to fall for you, they may decide that you are worth the risk and let you into their beautiful world of secrets, emotions, and insecurities.
She wants to develop emotional intimacy with you, as this is the best way for her to connect with others, and of course, one can't fully embrace love unless one opens one's hearts and minds to the other individual. Although scary, the Cancer woman is very aware of this fact.
Cancer women have soft hearts, so opening them to others can be daunting and takes a lot of courage. If you care about the Cancer woman, you will also not lead her on if you don't have the same feelings. If you do, ensure they know they are safe and secure with you.
While they can be moody, oversensitive, and insecure, Cancer women are some of the best partners. They will shower you with love with their nurturing, romantic nature and physical affection. Consequently, if you end up in a relationship with them, there won't be one moment where you will not feel completely loved and doted upon.
