5 Ways To Compliment A Cancer Man

Appreciate his gentle nature

People who encounter a Cancer man know that he probably is one of the gentlest persons they have ever met. Of course, Cancer men differ from one another. Some of them are sweet to everyone, but some of them are not. Letting him know that you appreciate how sweet he is to you will definitely be a big compliment if he is the latter type.

He is probably one of the most romantic lovers that you’ll ever have, and so, if he goes all the way to do things for you, let him know that you appreciate that. Acknowledge the way he does things with such gentleness. If you can afford to give him a gift, this is a great way to express your appreciation to him because this means that you are willing to go out of your way to be sweet to him as well.

Be thankful

Have you ever experienced a Cancer man opening up to you about how he got played or how he got hurt by someone he considers important? To be honest, it is very easy to take advantage of a Cancer man because of his gentle and sweet nature.

He does not like to have any bad blood with anyone, and so he tends to comply with whatever the other party is asking from him.

However, your Cancer man may be getting a little too tired of this, so it is important that you show gratitude for everything that he does for you. If he does chores for you, let him know how helpful and thoughtful he is.

Express your gratitude verbally. Sometimes, that’s all that It takes to brighten his day. Tell him how thoughtful he is when giving you something as a gift.

Open up to him

We have talked about how a Cancer man appreciates vulnerability, and when you open up to him, it makes him feel that you already put your guard down and that you are already comfortable with him. This is the biggest compliment because to him, he finally found someone who is the same as him – not afraid to express his feelings.

Also, let him know how he makes you happy. Making and keeping you happy makes a Cancer man happy as well. So, of course, if there are things that he does that make you happy at the moment, kiss him and let him know.

Focus on his personality

There are a lot of good things that a Cancer man has other than his looks. Yes, he can be very handsome, but know that there is a lot deep down in him. It is not hard to look for good things about his personality. He’s naturally compassionate and sympathetic, so, tell him how you appreciate how he gives sympathy to people he considers important.

He can also be very creative as this is something innate to him. Tell him verbally that you think he is creative and innovative. Find the positive things that you find in him. He will definitely appreciate that more rather than complimenting him on his looks.

Show sweetness

You need to give back the same treatment he gives you, so, it doesn’t hurt to show a little sweetness to him. Tell him things gently and with so much love. In that way, he will know that he is treating you right. Every now and then, give him a little kiss on the cheek just to let him know how much you love and appreciate him.

What Not To Say To A Cancer Man

Do not tell a Cancer man that he is being manipulative because even though he can and he will (especially to people who he thinks need it), he gets annoyed when you accuse him of manipulating you.

Do not also tell him that he is being overly lovey-dovey because again, he is naturally sweet and sensitive. So, if you think he is being too clingy, tell him in a very nice way.

We also know how a Cancer man can be a little sensitive sometimes. However, it is not advisable to say that to him. Do not tell him that he is being too serious because as much as possible, he only wants to spread happiness to the world.
