Cancers (or Cancerians, if you prefer) are very sensitive and caring people. A Cancer in love falls quickly and with a very loud thud. Prone to giving their all, they rush headlong into commitment. Less likely than other signs to bail when the going gets rough, Cancers are very loyal and determined to work things out.
Cancers are champions of their loved ones. They will fiercely protect and defend their lovers. Known for their sensitivity, Cancers in love can be very sentimental when things are going well, yet if things get difficult their feelings get very hurt quickly. They are careful with themselves and may not easily show their vulnerabilities when first beginning a love affair. Yet when handled with care and respect they blossom, giving devotion and loyalty for life.
Sentimental in the extreme, they are likely to notice the little things and keep track of things better than other signs. Cancers are easily labeled "pack rats" for the simple reason that their deep rooted memories link them to external things and they feel better when surrounded with specific things kept 'just so'. This can be remembered handily by their lovers, and showing respect to a Cancer's belongings will make them love you all the more.
Respect and devotion is very important to Cancers. They are typically not outlandish or crude at all. Their love style is one of steady quietness that is very appealing long term. Their current in their river of passion runs deep and swift. They make excellent parents as well, bringing their own brand of sensitive parenting to the mix which likely enhances their partners ways.
Easy to talk to, Cancers are very empathetic and their sensitivity makes them very alluring and easy to love. You will want to protect your Cancer from the big bad world and they will appreciate the gesture of protectiveness. Likewise they are also very protective of their loved ones and can easily be misunderstood in motive. They simply want their loved one to be okay and are willing to shift their own life around dramatically to ensure the well-being of the relationship. When they find their match, you will be treated with respect, kindness and deep love.
Cancers are usually skilled at nurturing and one way this often manifests is via cooking. Many Cancers take pleasure from preparing homemade food for their loved ones. It's typically a more intimate act than for other signs who sometimes cook just to show off. If your Cancer offers to cook for you then it's safe to say they're fairly serious about you. Obviously not every Cancer cooks, but when it happens it's a very positive indication that they care about you.
