I am not a Cancer, I actually am a Scorpio but I am dating a Cancer. I was hoping that you guys could help me out, give me some insights, or let me know if you can relate to my situation. I have been dating my boyfriend for 3 years now and this situation happens with him like clockwork. Every 6 months or so he will start getting moody and "depressed" about his life situation, where his life is going, his job and everything. Then he will start treating me differently, less loving, pays less attention to me, and the second I bring up the obvious to him, he cuts me off. By cuts me off, I mean, he stops hanging out with me, he stops saying I love you, and he only calls every so often for like 3 second intervals of conversation. This usually lasts 3-7 days. I don't see him this entire time, and to him, I basically stop existing. He makes me feel like I am disposable and that I do not matter during this time because he completely closes me out. Once this episode is over, he won't talk to me about what happened, he feels bad, but he won't talk to me about it. Nothing ever gets solved, and this just happens again. Before, he used to blame me for it, saying that he just needed his space from me because we spent so much time together, but truly, this is not the case, and I feel like that was his only excuse for what was really going on with him. Which I still don't understand.
Is this common for a Cancer? Or is this just something that is very much a personal, my boyfriend, issue?
