For Cancer, home is where the heart is. This man sees his home as a sacred place, and it is not about how well it is decorated or arranged.

Instead, he will look, flirt and play just as he plays with you. Leave him without thinking twice about it. You know you deserve so much more!

You Don’t Feel Like A Priority

He knows you are serious about him, they can feel it. So his caring nature that he can’t control is telling you to save yourself from heartbreak while you still have time.
