When a Cancer Man Ignores You?
Keep in mind that Cancer man cannot cope with confrontation well.
Therefore, the moment he’s ignoring you, the first reason is probably because you have said or done something that upset him. He won’t let you know; instead, he tends to stay quiet for awhile but it will not last for a long term.
He is not the type that will give you the cold shoulder forever. But if you don’t find a solution for this issue, misunderstandings will arise between you and him more and more.
This man will open up and even share his emotions when he completely feels comfortable with you.
Nonetheless, there are times when he may throw a fit in protest to whatever making him upset about rather than icing you out. In the situation for him to ignore you, then what you did to him would probably be over the line.

- Honestly express your feelings frequently and sincerely toward him, even if you are sensing anxious and fear deep inside. Emotional and sensitive, he appreciates topics related to feelings. Be more open to him and the emotional level between you two will grow stronger.

What Does He Think When Ignoring You?
1. He is stressful and not want to tell anyone
Cancer man may not a person of drama, but he tends to run or hide when a major stress occurring in his life.
Or, what you are doing to him provides him no safety and security ? 2 important elements in a relationship with a Crab. Put it simply, understanding this man well is a need, since you have to make him feel secure before requiring him to care for you.
A Cancer may become stressful due to a number of reasons.
- Suddenly losing his job
- Having problems with his family members
- Failing his exams or failing to get a job
- Feeling pressured with his current relationships
As much as you want your Cancer man to be honest with you, then be real to him.
2. He is not aware of his ignoring act
As I told you above, Cancer man is reserved and tends to stay in his own shell. Therefore, maybe it’s just because he is not interested in talking. Sometimes, he is not even aware that he’s ignoring you.
Don’t jump to the conclusion quickly!
He rarely communicates with you doesn’t mean he does not love you anymore.
Whenever you notice a drastic change in his attitude with you, please give him his private space to think about everything (his current thoughts, his feelings to you, etc.) rather than forcing him to explain.
3. He is afraid of calling you due to his own insecurity
His fragile ego is the main reason making him unable to accept the idea of showing his vulnerable side to his loved one in any shape of form.
Most Cancer men are insecure yet they will never admit they’re insecure.
Your Cancer craves for a relationship that can provide him both safety and security. He doesn’t like getting involved in situations that could threaten him or put him in harmful ways. That’s why he is likely to avoid any conflict.
Even if he really likes you, he will try to not be the one taking the initiative.

I’m dating cancer guy for 5 months now. And all people here already knows that being with cancer is so beautiful at the beginning, the same thing is happened to me because they just what we could called a perfect guy. Well, that’s until they give us their silent treatment. The first silent treatment was when I friendzoned him, it’s only maybe one or two days, he shown up then we made it. This time is much longer, he already didn’t contact me for 5 days now and I don’t know what am I supposed to do anymore. We have a long distance relationship, he usually texting me when he has a break time and calling me after work everyday. The main problem is only because i was too busy with my work and ignored his texts for hours. Its not an intentional fyi, I replied him right away at night but only to find him desperately said that he is not good enough for me, etc. He then suddenly asked me to wait for him and he loves me.. Then boom.. He disappeared until now. Many people said cancers are pretty hard to open up, but mine is so open to me. I know almost about everything and even his fam already knew about me before i even told anything to my own fam. When we had any problems he also boldly said everything he likes or dislikes to me, so the problems were always solved before we said goodnight to each other. Anyway I’m a virgo and like mostly virgos we have so high self esteem and self pride. And now I’m confused because i already tried to texting a sweet text him once or twice, but got no response. This thing really drained my emotions, and i know the main cause is i wasn’t there when he might be need my attentions. Should i just let him go or waiting in uncertain? But for how long?
Love is patient. If you love the person then you will wait.
To be honest, it actually depends on what you’re waiting for. In my experience, I’ve come to learn that love is about giving and being, not really receiving. It’s about what you can do for the other person, the choice you make go stick with that person. All I’m trying to say is, if you genuinely love someone and care about them, you shouldn’t be too worried about what they think or how they feel about you. I know it’s difficult, especially when you want to spend the rest of your life with them, but there’s a higher level of love which gives and asks nothing in return. When you get to that level of loving without seeking or expecting to be loved in return, I think it’s safe to say that whoever it is you love will make their mind up about you pretty quickly.
SO basically it all depends on how much you love that person and how far you are willing to go for that person. Just because you decide to wait for that person doesn’t mean the other person is obligated to love you back and come back to you. Do remember, they also have their own live and own emotions and feelings. Having said that if that person is extremely important, then wait for that person but be prepared for consequences if things don’t go well. I see people bitching about things when it doesn’t go well but hey, you are the one who made that decision, nobody forced you to.
Thank you for your reply Laura. I agreed with you that love is all about patient, but it doesnt mean we thrown away our rational thoughts. In my thoughts if someone really loves someone else, why they disappeared in the first place? Dont they care about the people they love? Dont they thinking about how they are or what they do? Well maybe the answer is because “THEY DONT CARE”. So why should i care? He is back, he texting and calling me after disappeared for almost 10 days maybe? Well, I dont care anymore though. I will let that crab to go wherever he wants to go.
This is very true and real. sadly, they are just so insecure. they need so much time to trust you and be open up to you. then one mistake, they become so distant and so cold. I had the same problem and I am cancer too. I am seriously thinking that enough is enough. it is getting very toxic and I just can’t let someone flip his poison on me for a lifetime
I am dating a Cancerian man all I can say it’s so not easy one does not know what to think or feel. I love this man with Amy heart. He started a new job in Durban and I am in Pretoria last month he was this side more often and it was birthday month and he did not do anything for me he only said we will do a weekend away till today I am waiting on him.
Lately he has ghosted me I sent him text messages and he does not respond don’t know why I asked him if his ok only than he reply and said yes am ok.
I am struggling I know this guy for so long and we were on and off and we started dating official in Jan and he only said he loves me after day after his bi and thereafter this were normally and boomed he gone all quite shud I be worried.
I take it that he’s just disappeared from your life, kind of like falling off the face of the earth. That he’d been a consistent presence in your life and then abruptly vanished.
No, you should not. Ghosting is disrespectful and hurtful. A childish and cowardly way to dismiss the other. Save your dignity. And if he tries to contact you after a prolonged absence, don’t answer him. That means texts, phone calls, emails and any form re-initiation “the Ghost” might make. Move on and find better friends or partners. Something is seriously amiss with ghoster guy, and I’d wager that you are not the first person he’s done this to.
