Oh my gosh! This hit way too close to home. I'm a Taurus guy and I liked this Cancer guy (still do). Anyway, he started it. He said I was cute. Then soon after I told him I wanted to be with him but he was in the process of trying to end it with his girlfriend. Eventually, he said he would give me a chance but we had to develop more of a friendship first. A week or two later (soon I know) my feelings came out sharply and I told him I loved him. The chemistry i felt was great, he is a great cook and a true gentleman. But all of a sudden he got cold feet and resorted to telling me he likes women too much to be with me and that I was wasting my time. My first love broke my little heart right in half.
In my situation, I think he got overwhelmed with the idea of being with a guy although he's been with at least one sexually and instead told me something that ended up hurting me. But I also heard that Cancers hate rejection (just like a Taurus). But if we admitted to liking them, that shouldn't be an issue.
Now I'm confused. lol! Sorry if I wasn't more help. I just wanted to share my story with ya!
