Updated on April 24, 2013

Cancer men have birthdays between June 20 and July 22. Cancer is the fourth astrological sign. Here are 7 characteristics that are said to describe Cancer men. How well do you believe that these things describe you or a Cancer man that you know?

1) Cancer men are typically sweet and very caring

They are very sympathetic and will do almost anything for those that they love. The downside is that they can come off as a bit clingy in romantic relationships to those that need more independence and space.

2) Cancer men have an instinct for nurturing

They are often very good at making those close to them feel loved and protected. They tend to be very supportive of their close friends and family. They are also highly intuitive and often know just what to say and do to make people feel comfortable.

3) Cancer men are often emotional

They tend to be somewhat vulnerable and easily hurt. Cancer men have more mood swings then most of the other signs. However, they often appear tough on the outside.

4) Cancer men like to feel needed

They crave emotional intimacy and like to share their feelings especially in romantic relationships. They also typically crave affection.

5) Cancer men tend to be shy

They often are not super talkative in social settings and mind their own business. Often they are especially shy around the opposite sex.

6) Cancer men typically work very well alone

time tends to spark their creative imaginations and is often therapeutic for them.

7) Most Cancer men highly value home and family

Typically they are extremely loyal. They are rarely unfaithful and are not likely to betray their friends.

      My husband became very quite and withdrawn when he was going through Chemo. Now he's doing great with thanks to his doctor .

      Voted up useful and interesting, Joyce.
