It can be difficult to tell a Cancer man how you feel, especially if you’re not sure how he feels about you.
You don’t want to say the wrong thing and risk ruining your relationship. But at the same time, you want to be honest about your feelings.
So, what should you do?
In this article, I’ll give you some tips on how to tell a Cancer man how you feel. I’ll help you navigate the conversation and make sure you say the right thing.
1) Determine what you want to say
Before you start the conversation, you should determine what you want to say. You know how you feel about him, so you need to express that.
But there’s a difference between saying “I love you” and “I’m falling for you.”
Depending on where your relationship is, certain phrases will be more appropriate than others.
You should also consider how he might react. If he doesn’t feel the same way, you don’t want to say something that will make things awkward between you.
Instead, you want to give him an opportunity to respond in a way you’re comfortable with and open the door for a genuine conversation.
2) Choose the right time and place to have the conversation
Now that you know what you want to say, you need to think about the right time and place to have the conversation.
You want to pick a time and place where you can have a relaxed, open conversation. It’s best to avoid having “the talk” when either of you is under a lot of stress.
If you’re at work, for example, you don’t want to risk it coming across as unprofessional.
So when should you tell him? Try to find a time when you’re both relaxed and can talk freely.
You want to make sure the conversation stays between the two of you, so try to avoid public places.
It’s also important to consider his schedule. If he’s super busy, he might not have time to process your feelings.
All in all, be considerate of his time and schedule and try to find an appropriate time for the two of you to talk.
3) Be honest and direct
This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s really important to be honest and direct. You don’t want to try to be cute or coy with a Cancer man – that just makes the conversation uncomfortable.
You want to be direct and honest about how you feel. Let him know that you care about him and feel something for him. If you want to be with him, let him know. If you want to be exclusive with him, let him know.
Be direct about what you want. Be confident in your feelings for him. If you’re not confident, he’ll be able to tell, and he’ll question your feelings.
4) Show him that you need him
I’m going to let you into a little secret about men – not just Cancer men – all men: They need to feel needed.
If you’re like me you’re an independent woman who is perfectly capable of getting things done herself. But the thing is, guys have this primal instinct where they need to feel like, well, a hero.
I learned this from relationship expert James Bauer who came up with the term hero instinct. This fascinating concept explains what really drives men in relationships, which is ingrained in their DNA.
And it’s something most women don’t know anything about, I certainly had no idea.
Once triggered, these drivers make men into the heroes of their own lives. They feel better, love harder, and commit stronger when they find someone who knows how to trigger it.
Now, you may be wondering why it’s called “the hero instinct”? Do guys really need to feel like superheroes to commit to a woman?
Not at all. Forget about Marvel. You won’t need to play the damsel in distress or buy your man a cape.
The easiest thing to do is to check out James Bauer’s excellent free video here. He shares some easy tips to get you started, such as sending him a 12-word text that will trigger his hero instinct right away.
It’s all quite simple really, it’s a matter of knowing the right things to say to make him realize that he wants you and only you. So why not try it on your Cancer man?
5) Be confident
The thing about Cancer men is that they love confident women.
If you really want to show a Cancer man how you feel, then you need to start by being confident in yourself.
A Cancer man will love you all the more if you’re confident in yourself. If you’re not confident in yourself, he may pick up on that, and you don’t want that.
Be confident in who you are and what you want. Be confident in your abilities, and your strengths. Be confident in the way you look.
And most of all, be confident in your feelings for him.
6) Let him know you’re interested in more than friendship
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, let him know that you’re interested in more than friendship.
Let him know that you care for him and that you’re interested in taking the relationship to the next level.
You can do this by being affectionate with him and spending time with him on a regular basis. Be careful not to rush things, though. You don’t want to scare him off.
You can say something like, “I care about you,” or “You’re special to me.”
Let him know that you want to be with him. If you’re not sure if he feels the same way, ask him, “Do you feel the same way?”
If he doesn’t feel the same way, don’t panic. Let him know that you care about him, but don’t pressure him into a relationship.
7) Listen to his response
When he responds to your feelings, listen to what he says.
Make sure to listen carefully and don’t jump to conclusions. Let him finish what he has to say.
If you push him away or respond negatively to his response, it could ruin your friendship.
If he doesn’t feel the same way now, try to respond in a positive way and not overreact.
Think about it:
He may not be ready for a relationship, or he may not feel the same about you at the moment, but you never know what the future might bring.
Be cool. Let him know that you care about him and are happy to remain just friends.
8) Give him time to process his feelings
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, give him some time to process and work through his feelings.
Let him know that you want to be with him but don’t rush him. Let him know that you care and that you want to be around him, but don’t smother him.
Let him know that you have feelings for him and let him process how he feels about you taking as long as he needs.
But hey, I know it’s not easy to just sit back and wait, wondering how he feels. If you want to know how he feels about you (even before he does) then I’ve just the thing for you!
I recently discovered a super helpful zodiac quiz from renowned astrologer Anna Kovich that will reveal what he really wants from you.
In this free quiz, you’ll learn how to make your Cancer man:
- Pursue you
- Commit to you
- And love you deeply.
My friends recommended the quiz and I did it just for the fun of it but I was blown away by what I found out. Just by answering a few simple questions, I discovered shocking details about my man (which have proven to be 100% correct so far).
9) Show him you’re a catch
If you want to tell him how you feel and are hoping to get a positive reaction from him, it could help to show him that you’re a catch.
Be someone that he can fall in love with. Show him that you’re confident, kind, and caring.
Continue to be a good friend, and don’t pressure him into a relationship before he’s ready.
Follow up after the conversation and let him know that you care about him. Even if he doesn’t feel the same way, you can still be friends. Relationships don’t always last, but it’s important to still maintain your friendship.
By showing him that you’re a catch, you’re increasing the chances that he’ll see you as something more than just a friend.
10) Don’t be afraid to make a move
Trust me, if you don’t make a move, you’ll regret it for the rest of your life!
Back in college there was this guy I was sure was my soulmate but I was so insecure that I could never find the courage to tell him how I felt.
Now, years later I still regret being such a chicken. What’s the worst that could have happened?
He would have rejected me and we wouldn’t have ended up together. Well, we didn’t end up together. On the other hand, if I hadn’t been afraid to tell him how I felt, there’s a chance he could have told me he felt the same way and we would have lived happily ever after.
The worst thing you can do is let your feelings build up and fester inside. That way lies madness.
The best thing you can do is to just get it out there and say what you need to say.
If he doesn’t feel the same way, there’s no point in dwelling on it. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and you shouldn’t let one bad experience sour you on dating altogether.
11) Communicate with body language
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, you can communicate your feelings with body language.
You can sit a little bit closer to him or hold his hand if you want to let him know you care for him.
You can also touch his arm or shoulder as you’re talking to him. These are all signs of affection and attraction, so if you want to get your feelings across, try doing some of these things.
Even if you don’t say anything, he’ll know that you’re sending him a special message.
See how he reacts. Does he pull away, or does he stay close to you? Does he seem to enjoy your hand on his?
12) Let him see you care
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, you can show him that you care for him. This will let him know that you’re interested in more than just friendship.
You can do this by planning something special for him, whether it’s taking him out to dinner or doing something he likes.
You can also do things around the house to help him out. If he has a lot of things going on in his life and he’s stressed out, let him know that you’re there for him. Let him know that you care.
13) Show him your best self
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, show him your best self.
Let him see what you have to offer, but don’t smother him or make him feel uncomfortable.
Instead, try to strike a balance. Let him know you’re interested in spending time with him and offer to do things with him, but don’t try to monopolize his time.
If you want to show him how you feel, try going out of your way to do nice things for him and help him out.
14) Compliment him
Everyone wants to feel appreciated, and Cancer men especially love to be complimented. Just be sure you’re sincere when you do it.
If there is something specific about him that you admire, such as his taste in music, his successful career, or his culinary skills, let him know.
If you’re out at dinner, let him know that you appreciate the fact that he chose that restaurant.
If you’re out with him at a party, let him know that you appreciate his social skills… You get the gist.
This relates back to the unique concept I mentioned earlier: the hero instinct.
When a man feels respected, useful, and needed, he’s more likely to fall in love with you.
And the best part is that triggering his hero instinct can be as simple as knowing the right thing to say over a text.

15) Take your time
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, take your time. Let him know that you’re interested in him, but don’t rush into anything.
Let the relationship progress naturally. If you rush into things and then he doesn’t feel the same way, it could end up being really awkward and you could ruin your friendship.
Take things slowly and let them progress naturally. If he doesn’t feel the same way, you can gently back off and remain friends.
16) Go out of your way to be there for him
If you’re not sure how he feels about you, go out of your way to be there for him. Let him know that you care for him and that you want to help him out as much as possible.
Let him know that you’re there for him and that you want to be there for him. Let him know that you want to go out of your way to help him and spend time with him.
If he doesn’t feel the same way, don’t worry; there are plenty of other fish in the sea.
17) Show interest in his hobbies and passions
Cancers are very passionate people and they will appreciate it if you show an interest in their passions.
If he loves to collect vintage sports cars, ask him about them. If he’s an avid golfer, ask him about his game. If he’s a musician, ask him if he’d like to jam with you. If you show an interest in his passions, you’ll be sure to grab his attention.
If you want to tell a man how you feel, don’t be afraid. Take the risk so you don’t regret not doing it later.
If you want to increase your chances of getting a positive response from him, the surest way is to try the hero instinct.
Trust me, by appealing directly to his primal instincts, you’ll get him to see you in a whole new way. You will no longer be just a friend to him, he’ll suddenly see you as a potential romantic partner.
And since this free video reveals exactly how to trigger your man’s hero instinct, you could make this change as early as today.
With James Bauer’s incredible concept, he’ll see you as the only woman for him. So if you’re ready to take that plunge, be sure to check out the video now.
