The first thing you need to do is a breakthrough that tough exterior.

Cancer men are compassionate but they can also be very protective of themselves.

This can make it hard to break down their guards, but not impossible.

Inside that tough shell is a true softy, who is extremely sensitive and just wants to be loved.

Here’s how to make a Cancer man obsessed with you:

1. Be patient.

Don’t rush things with a Cancer man, and soon he will feel close to you.

Cancer men are very guarded and need to really get to know someone before jumping into a relationship.

Take things slowly until you’re sure they have a certain level of trust in you.

If you respect their boundaries, they will appreciate your affection more and crave you when you’re not around.

This will also make them more willing to respect your boundaries as well.

Taking things slow is also a great way to build their trust in you slowly before trying to get right into a relationship with them.

It might even be a good idea to start off as friends first to show him how amazing you are.

Then try to progress things forward. He will have a much easier time falling for you if he's already comfortable with you.

2. Be supportive.

When you are his biggest cheerleader, he can let his guards down.

When a Cancer man feels like you're at his side, he falls deeper in love with you.

It’s no secret that Cancer men need quite a bit of reassurance and confidence boosters.

Make him more confident by telling him what makes him so special to you and why he’s great.

This will not only give him more confidence in himself but also in your feelings toward him.

He will love that he can always count on you to build him up when he's down and will want to do the same for you.

This tactic will ensure that you are the first person he comes to when he receives good news because he knows you'll be just as excited as he is.

3. Be gentle.

Make him feel comfortable. To feel obsessed, a Cancer man also needs to know that he is emotionally safe with you.

While it’s important to maintain your own independence, make sure he still knows that he is a priority.

Try sending brief but sweet texts throughout your busier days to assure him that you haven’t forgotten about him.

This will show him that you care and that it is okay to let his walls down.

Even if you can't text him, letting him know why and that you are looking forward to speaking later will work wonders.

Cancer men are very scared of getting heartbroken and they will immediately think of the worst-case scenario if they don't hear from you for a while.

4. Be understanding.

Don't be upset if he gets jealous.

If he’s jealous on an unhealthy level, you have every right to run for the hills.

However, frequent reassurance is typically needed for a Cancer man.

If he gets jealous try to resist the urge to get annoyed or blow him off, this will only make him fearful of trusting you.

Instead, calmly explain to him that he nothing to worry about.

He will love you for understanding.

However, be sure that there is a certain boundary here and that this doesn't become an unhealthy trait.

5. Be vulnerable

Let him take care of you.

Cancer men are old fashioned and love to take care of their significant others.

If he offers to pick up the check, let him, it’s truly what he wants.

Being generous towards you makes him feel good about himself and your relationship.

He will love to pamper you and shower you with gifts and affection.

Letting him do so will make him unbelievably happy.

Cancer men are super generous and once they fall for you, your happiness is their happiness too.

6. Be open-minded.

Be super accepting of their soft-side.

Cancer men take a while to come out of their shells but once they do all bets are off.

If he acts like a total goofball in front of you, encourage it.

This means that he is super comfortable around you and the more accepting you are of his dorky personality, the more he will love you.

It really means a lot if a Cancer man is willing to be his complete self around you with no walls.

If they share secrets or have a deep conversation with you about their outlook towards things, be friendly about it.

Show him that it is safe to tell you anything and that you will never pass judgment towards him for doing so.

This is another easy way to build up his trust in you for a healthy relationship in the near future.
