Compliment him in an honest way and don’t be phony (he’ll pick that up in a second).
Allow yourself to be vulnerable so that you can allow him in.
The symbol for Cancer is the crab, and that tender hearted guy surrounds himself with that shell to protect himself from emotional hurts.
You know that saying, “Once bitten, twice shy.”If you feel him beginning to withdraw from you, get whatever it is out into the open and talk it out right away. Since they don’t come on strong, that can be misinterpreted.
It’s OK to let him take control of you during the lip lock but you’ll need to be a bit assertive at some point. Their feelings get easily hurt, and that could annoy a guy who doesn’t have the patience to put up with that.
