We give you two situations - a strong willed and persistent girl who talks her mind and portrays herself as a bubble, effervescent girl-next-door and a reserved and docile girl who shies away from crowd and loves to be in her shell. If you think we are talking about two different girls, then you are completely wrong. A Cancer woman can be both of those, and all in the same hour. Ruled by the moon, Cancerian women are emotional, sensitive, friendly and caring females who look at the world with a rose-tinted glass. They are homely individuals who pay utmost priority to their family and friends. The only thing that works against them is their tremendous mood swings. They may be chirpy one moment, somber the other and distant the next. Cancer woman take to their symbol of the zodiac sign very seriously. As such, they often demonstrate traits of a crab. Just like a crab is tough from the outside and mushy from the inside, similarly a Cancer female may seem cold and distant from the outside but if you look deep within, she would be sensitive and loving at heart.  To know more about the traits and characteristics of a Cancer female, look through the following lines.

Cancer Woman Personality Traits & Characteristics

The Bright Side
Sensitive, stubborn, docile and distant – that is a Cancer female for you. Confused? Don’t be, for she is all of these and much more. Now, don’t confuse her with the chameleon Gemini female. For, unlike the latter who changes her personality in different situations, a Cancerian just goes through a change in her mood, which causes the variation. Thus, a Cancer woman becomes difficult to judge as she sad one moment and happy the other. However, excepting for this, a Cancerian female is the kind of girl which every boy would like to take home to. She has a friendly and caring nature which extends to motherly affection. Once committed, she will go to any lengths to help her friend/lover who is in trouble. She is not just sympathetic but empathetic towards others feelings and emotions. A Cancer woman has oodles of patience and perseverance which she uses quite generously. As such, she will seldom show her fiery temper, her anger or resentment.  However, with a Cancer woman around, you will have to constantly display your love and affection to her as she is highly insecure. Reassurance is what a Cancer woman longs for in a relationship. In matters of money, women born under this sun sign have a balanced approach. As such, they would neither be stingy, nor totally extravagant.

The Dark Side
If you have ever had a Cancer woman as a friend, you would know that she is a hard one to crack. Not because she lacks intelligence or is a dumb-headed female, but due to her incessant mood swings. Happy one moment, sad the other, witty the next and gloomy the following! It is very difficult to judge what is going on in the mind of a Cancerian female and how to react or respond to it. You may find her melancholic and depressed one moment. But just when you feel like putting your arm around to comfort and pacify her, out goes the wistfulness as she turns into a sparkling girl full of wit, humor and life. A Cancer woman has the capability of being stubborn, criticising, furious and docile all at the same hour. Another aspect that works against a Cancer woman is her over protective nature. Females under this zodiac sign tend to get sticky and can be really annoying. They are full of insecurities and hate to be criticized, ridiculed or rejected. As such, a Cancer woman never makes the first move in a relationship for the fear of a negative answer. Cancer women are secretive in nature and do not express their true feelings even to their lovers.

Romance Quotient
If loyalty, dedication and devotion are what you are looking for in your partner, note that a Cancer woman has all of those in immeasurable amounts. But if you think you can easily date this reliable lady, be forewarned as she is no pushover. Cancer woman likes to take it slow in matters of heart because once she commits, she likes to give her all. As such, she is never in a hurry while choosing her love and weighs the pros and cons before saying a yes. While dating a Cancer woman, you would have to play the role of the initiator all the time, as expecting her to make the first move is far too much. Remember, a Cancer woman only knows how to move backward or sideward in a relationship. This is mainly due to her shy and reserved nature and the fear of rejection. Only when a Cancerian female is more than 100 percent sure of your love to her will she ever let out her feelings and emotions. Until then, loving her can seem to be a one-side affair to you.

Once committed, a Cancer woman is an extremely devoted and dedicated lover. She knows not the trade of deceiving and can never think of anyone else except you. Tender, womanly, timid and modest, a Cancerian female is constantly in need to reassurance of your love to her in the forms of gifts, flowers, surprises, celebrations, holiday and so on. Since she is extremely sentimental and emotional, a Cancer female can never stand harsh words or an aggressive behaviour. She can get easily hurt, following which she may even retreat to her shell and take a long time to come out. When sad and melancholic, she would need you by her side to caress her, console her, take care of her and love her. Note a Cancer girl always wants to be told how much desirable she is to you and how you still need her at every step of your life. But don’t mistake this for her weakness as if needed, a Cancer woman can be as strong as a rock and sacrifice her everything for her loved ones. It is just that she loves to be pampered and spoiled after every few days.  In short, one can say, a Cancer girl is a perfect take-away package, who will always be there to love you, take care of you, get rid of your worries and make you smile again!
