Cancer: Wendell the Love Dachshund



Dear Wendell,
I’m a single skeptic and a Cancer, looking into Internet dating on a friend’s advice. Will some real connection pan out, or will it just be something I do for kicks?  (Either one is fine.)

Dear Cancer,
Do I detect the protective, “I don’t care” armor you Cancerians wear – much like we dachshunds sport our gleaming fur – when you sense that rejection could be part of the deal? The AstroTwins tell me that Cancers hate to feel vulnerable and will do anything to avoid it. Dear Cancer human, we all deserve love, but it often requires risk. Even as an adorable mini-dach, I’ve learned that I stand a better change of getting kibbles or cuddling if I trot right up to a person and avail myself. Step out of your Cancer shell and don’t hide. Try the Internet, but don’t use it as an excuse not to mingle face-to-face. Attend some events where you feel comfortable (a hobby group, a book reading) – but not so safe that you already know everyone. Don’t hang in a clique, which you Cancers are quick to form. We dogs know that if you want to stand out from the pack, you should lead it! Take a leadership role in a community or social group. You’ll feel more secure with an excuse to contact people and chat ‘em up. Make sure you have a long list of hotties to dial!
