Before I started writing stories of cancer, I did a deep brainstorm on people I know who are “cancers”. My brainstorm results were quite surprising to me because I found I don’t have any real close friends now. In every stage of life, elementary, middle school and high school, I had one or more close cancer friends from school. But soon after we graduated, we seemed to interact less and less and eventually I don’t talk to them anymore.
In horoscope website, cancer are described to be intuitive, emotional, and passionate. I did perceived these traits on cancers I used to hang out or interact with. Cancers are really easy to make friends with, because the are the ones who will say hi to you in hallways but they will not start a conversation that make you feel too close like what Aries will do. For example, if you meet a cancer school friend at the café in your neighborhood, he or she will come to say “hi, what’s up and nice to see you here” then leave.
Though they seem to good at socializing with people and keeping the “right” distance, cancers are super emotional people. For cancers to function, they have to be in the good moods first. For example, if they get irritated by something (such as the parking fine they received), they have to solve the problems that caused their bad moods so that they can start the day.
Unlike signs such as Capricorn and Taurus, cancer seems to be more open with their emotions. Cancers like to share their emotions with the world, such as posting how they feel on social media platforms and delete them later. That’s quite a typical thing that cancers will do.
Something I found really interesting about Cancer is that: no matter how wild they portray to be, they are people who love home the most. For example, my friend Amanda is one of the wildest party girls in town. When Amanda’s parents come to visit her, she goes back home early and has dinner with her parents. Another cancer girl I am closed to is my sister in law. Before she had my nephew and niece, she spent all her money on clothes and cosmetic products. But soon after she gave birth of her first child, she started to spend every penny on kid’s clothes, food, and toys… If you were someone close to her, you would be shocked by the sudden, dramatic changes on her consumption behaviours.
To be honest, I think cancers are great friends and families, but I seem to lack the ability to maintain a long-term friendship with them. One of the factors may be my laziness of contacting people first… I am that type of persons that I will never call anyone except the one and two I am super closed to. While for cancers, they need intimacy and constant connections with people to feel passionate and loved. (For example, they seem to like people who text them everyday and ask daily, basic questions). I know I am too lazy… I never really text but I reply.
Do you find cancers super passionate? Do you find it difficult to keep a long-term relationship with them? Let me know and comment below!
