Just be careful that you won't be totally swooped by his idealistic romances act to you.
Especially falling to "quickly".

It maybe perceived as if he's falling too quickly but in reality that's how some are. I've had a best friend Pisces male for years no intimacy and he was very supportive, loyal and caring. My boyfriend is the same way. It's just their style .

I understand some people may not have the same outcome with them but it maybe due to other reasons. But a healthy, decent Pisces man carries these traits.

Totally agree...same with my male Pisces friends.
I'm in a similar situation. I'm Cancer and worked with a Pisces on a daily basis. That bond is something special isn't it? We became great friends but long story short...he was coming off a horrible divorce after 18 yrs and started having feelings, even though he had a girlfriend. I'm married. I left the company and he didn't know how to handle a friendship outside the office. Yet to be seen if he can work through it and just be friends again. People break up and get divorced all the time and yet remain friends. So I too would like to it possible for a Pisces male to remain friends if they've had feelings?
One of my male Pisces friends looks like a total bad a** on the outside and prides himself on being known as an a**hole. IMO it's all an act to over compensate as he's one of the most sensitive and emotional men I've ever met. While he is indeed a total manly man, guys' guy, he's a big teddy bear on the inside. I'm one of the few (lucky ones) who have broken through to know the real guy underneath.
@einpisces - Workplace could be a tough place for pisces because its usually full of cruel people who will hurt their feeling badly and ruin their beautiful world...

Both my friends struggle emotionally at work (as do I). We are all so influenced by our surroundings that negative work environments can really get to us.
@Jayceon We need time to refocus our thoughts.

This is probably the hardest lesson I've learned. Being a maternal Cancer and wanting to help, caring so much, it can be very hard to not 'push' when I know my Pisces friends are hurting and let them come to me when they are ready.
Yep, both these guys have been coworkers of mine as well. I've come to understand that there's a very special connection between Cancer and Pisces. Threw me and #1 for a loop because we had never experienced it before. So much in common, such an easy comfortable connection right from the start. I immediately explained it to #2 early in our friendship to try and avoid the same issues...he gets it no problem.
I'm married to a Scorpio...another special connection. #1 went through a very ugly divorce which has only added to his emotional challenges. #2 is married with 2 beautiful children.
Thanks for sharing!
I met the very low functioning Pisces (#1) a couple years before the high functioning (#2). So similar and yet so different. I now know I made mistakes with #1 because I didn't understand Pisces in general and all their complexity. Why they need their alone time to recharge, how they run on emotions, etc. What I've learned here and elsewhere has helped me build a very positive friendship with #2.

I guess I just wanted to share that if your first introduction to Pisces happens to be with one who gets very overwhelmed by their emotions, sensitivity, relationships and turns to alcohol, etc. Don't label Pisces as a whole. Complex? Yes, but so worth it! As a Cancer they are among my dearest friends.

moody, romantic, sometimes self-absorbed (living in his own world), a good listener but not a good communicator, tend to be late, can be flaky, their feelings can get hurt easily, love to sleep, usually kind-hearted but sometimes like to play mind games, generous towards his love interest dear pisces male friend exactly! LOVES to talk and won't shut up once you get him started. lol However, it can indeed be like pulling teeth sometimes to get him to open matter how many times he's confided in me in the past. Love him to pieces but want to smack him silly at times.

@urbane101 I'm sorry too. Sounds like you're starting a new chapter in your life...that's exciting. No telling what the future holds. Keep your heart open!!! Hope to see postings from you in the future.

...The worst possible rejection for a Piscean is to be abandoned by a lover who no longer cares for them – ending a relationship with a Piscean requires steely resolve. Pisces will continue to cling; unable to accept that the relationship is over and convinced that if they reform in some way everything will be fine. An ex-partner of a Piscean may have to take extreme measures to extricate themselves from the emotional mess that a hurt Pisces can create.

So true watching a friend go through a divorce he did not want after 15 years. He was and still is devastated. He did everything possible, twisting himself in knots trying to hang on. He even acknowledges that his ex had to resort to extremely nasty behavior in order for him to finally let go.

Looking for insight on Aquarius-Pisces Cusps. I understand it can cause a Pisces to move from thinking with their heart (emotional) to thinking with their head (analytical). Pisces can be so complex to begin with...seems like the Aquarius influence could become overwhelming. Thoughts?
Giving them space when you care so much is very difficult. But, emotions are always changing. Time and space can change the dynamic entirely. You'll need to decide if you want to continue to reach out to her every now and then, or if it's just too painful. I for one, will never close the door on my pisces friend...he's too important to me, we have too much history and he has never treated me with anything but kindness. The difference is we're platonic, not romantic.
Your best friend!!! My Scorpio husband says I'm delightful. I'm very protective of those I love. When they are sad or struggling, I feel it very deeply. As a result, I can be smothering or clingy at times in my efforts to try and help them.

I keep a constant pulse on the emotions of those around me at all to 'read a room' in minutes. I think it's a subconscious defense mechanism. Lots of self reflection always with the goal of trying to improve my relationships.

LOVE music...that's how I escape to my happy place. My favorite vacation spot is my home. Appreciate the finer things in life but I don't NEED them to be happy.

Communication, communication, communication. HATE when there are unresolved issues with the people I love. I get VERY frustrated when people won't talk through issues to reach a resolution. Did I say communication!? lol

Question for you, since you are pisces and your wife is cancer...
I have a very special platonic connection with a pisces male. He drives me nuts when he disappears and won't talk to me when he's struggling with his girlfriend, ex wife, kids, work, etc. He's shared very personal thoughts and feelings with me many times. Other times, he just shuts down. Any suggestions on how I can get him to talk through stuff or is the only option to give him space while reminding him that I'm always there for him?

@urbane101 People come into our lives for 'a reason', 'a season' or 'a lifetime'. No telling what that timeline will be when we first meet. Keep the door and your heart open.

...We're gonna try and see/talk to eachother once or twice a week, and i think that hanging out in group settings is probably better for the time being to learn how to act around eachother.

Sounds like a plan. It can be freaky when there's a 'connection' like that right from the start. Too good to be true and all is the knee jerk reaction, especially when the opposite sex has always treated them badly. It's similar to the challenge I'm having with my pisces friend. He's never had a close female friend before with our type of connection and now he doesn't know how to interact with me since we're no longer working together. It can be very overwhelming with their emotions all over the place. (And, yes, they tend to let their true feelings slip when they've had a few too many beers.) Time is needed for them to sort it out.

It's obvious that you're a great guy. Just make sure your eyes stay wide open, keep the communication going and revisit that you're sticking around for the right reasons.

Married a Scorpio 17 yrs ago...been together 23 and counting. We balance each other and communication was very easy from the start. Just clicked.

Well good for them! I love to hear relationship success stories

what is their moon, Mercury, Mars and Venus? That could explain a lot. But I can see it working, my bff is an Aries and I got one hot on my heels right now lol
I'm a beginner here and learning, so I have no idea about their birth charts. But, based on what I've read, it appears there MUST be other placements that have helped them be successful.
My parents have been married for over 50 yrs. Observing them (now in their 70s) they seem to still be very much in love and have learned to 'tolerate' each other where needed. lol As a Cancer myself, I'm curious about your thoughts on this combination.
He did share EXTREMELY personal things/thoughts with me that he said he never even shared with his very best guy friend of 20+ yrs. I guess all I can do is continue to let him know I'm always around if he needs me. Thanks again.
