You want to know how to get a Cancer man to commit. Your boyfriend is a Cancer and you've probably discovered just how remarkable men like this are. When a guy born under this sign falls for a woman, it's an all encompassing type of love. He'll love deeply and forever and being faithful seems to be part of the genetic make up of these men. That's all incredibly appealing but the real question is how do you get him from being your boyfriend into something more? Capturing the heart of this man is very achievable once you understand exactly what steps you have to make now.
One of the most appealing, and also challenging, aspects of loving a Cancer man is his keen sense to understand what you're feeling. Once you've dated him for a time he'll be in tune to what you're feeling at any given moment. That's why you always need to be upfront and honest when you're trying to get a Cancer man to commit to you. If you try and put on a false front or you try and trick him into a more serious relationship, you run the risk of everything falling apart. If you want the two of you to have a more committed relationship tell him. Do not press the issue but definitely share what your desires are with him.
You can endear yourself to a Cancer man by accepting him exactly as he is. These men can be a bit quirky at times and some women enter into the relationship with the assumption that they'll be able to change that. You will not. You have to embarrass everything about him. For instance, you're going to find that he loves talking about things from his past. Whatever it's people he went to school with or a family member who has passed. Encourage him to share those memories with you, regardless of how many times he wants to share the exact same remembrances.
If you do want to get your Cancer man to commit, allow him the privilege of being the one to pick an engagement ring and make the proposal. You already know how old fashioned your guy is. He wants things to be a particular way and when it comes to commit to him, that's a man's responsibility. Once you've made it known to him that he's the only guy for you and you envision the two of you living a long and happy life together, leave it in his hands.
