Don't let the shy exterior fool you. Underneath that crab shell is a fascinating human being who is equal parts nurturing and wild. Cancers are culture hounds who love to sniff out the latest, greatest and most talked-about event in the arts. Order tickets in advance for your date. They want to spend the whole week leading up to your rendezvous bragging to their friends about where the two of you are going. Creativity ranks high with them and so does intellectualism. Read the newspaper and the local cultural guide before the date so you can match Cancer's conversational repartee. This sign is a bit orally fixated. Many Cancers are food and wine experts; some even have a tendency to eat and drink too much so watch out. Nothing turns them on more than a good kissing session and there's a 50/50 chance that will happen on your first date. What they love nearly as much? Great taste in home décor. A gorgeous living space is essential for this sign. If your decorating skills rival the pros, invite Cancer over for a home-cooked meal. Don't be surprised if they settle in for the entire weekend. On the other hand, if your Crab doesn't open up quickly, don't despair. You may have to work a little harder to break through that resistance. Call them on it, in a gentle, teasing way. If Cancer is feeling you, s/he'll laugh, smile and melt.
