Understanding The Personality Of A Capricorn Man
Knowledge is power, and when you understand the base personality of the Capricorn man, it may help you get to know him better. This particular zodiac sign may seem stand-offish, even though you may have known him a while. He doesn’t give all of the usual signals that he’s attracted to someone.
So before we launch into whether or not he’s into you, here are a few key components of how a Capricorn man operates, so that perhaps you can better understand what a relationship with a Capricorn man may be like.
1. The Capricorn man is practical and business-minded.
If there is one thing you can take to the bank about Capricorn men, it’s that they are usually all workaholics. They take their jobs and career very seriously and don’t be surprised if your Capricorn man is a natural at being an entrepreneur or business owner. As long as he is in a job he enjoys, the Capricorn man likes to work.
It is in his nature, and even on dates he may take business phone calls and may require patience in the beginning for this flaw.
2. He is low-key and private.
The Capricorn man likes to keep his life and events private. His affairs are never public, and you’ll be lucky to know how he’s truly feeling if you are not one of his chosen people. He doesn’t like to be the center of attention and is most definitely not the ‘life of the party’ like a Scorpio man would be.
That isn’t to say that a Capricorn doesn’t know how to party, he would just prefer it be a small group of people. One thing a Capricorn man dislikes is a ‘scene.’ He would prefer a private conversation over a public argument any day.
Also, take note, they are not big PDA enthusiasts. Anyone whose ever known a Capricorn knows that they aren’t exactly touchy feeling people anyway. But public displays of affection make him nervous and uncomfortable. It’s perfectly acceptable to hold hands, but kissing and full-body contact while in public just isn’t their thing.
3. He is an observer and shy.
If you do manage to drag a Capricorn male to the party don’t expect him to be participating in the middle of the crowd. He would rather be a wall-flower and observe and watch the people around him. In a small group of people, the Capricorn man can be entertaining, but larges groups or parties just isn’t in his comfort zone.
A Capricorn man is hard to push one over on. Hardly anything gets past this Zodiac sign as they observe and see everything. A Capricorn man likes to get to know the people they are surrounded by. He will usually people watch, rather than dive in and strikes up a conversation.
The reason for this attitude is because this zodiac sign is actually quite shy. Once they get to know you and decide that they like you, then they can easily get over that shyness with no pressure, and feel free to be themselves. However, it takes patience, as they will not go faster than their own pace.
4. The Capricorn male is frugal and simple.
While other Zodiac signs may attempt to woo their love interests with grand gestures or unique dates, Capricorn men are literally ‘dinner and a movie’ kind of guys. They enjoy walks, picnics, going to lunch or coffee.
The more simple, the more likely the Capricorn man will enjoy it. They also aren’t likely to spend money where they don’t have it, and even more so they make sure not to spend more money than necessary either. The more expensive dates and gifts will come after the relationship has evolved, and he’s become committed to it.
Even his hobbies are simple, and usually are something that he could make a profit off.
5. They are ambitious and passionate.
The Capricorn male as mentioned before is business orientated, so therefore you can expect them to be ambitious. This zodiac sign isn’t going to settle for anything in their lives, whether it be a position at work or a person to share their life with.
One way or another, he is used to getting the things in life that he wants. And he won’t settle for a partner that doesn’t have the same drive as his. Work, relationships, family, these are all things that this man takes seriously, and what he needs is a woman at his side with the same values, passion, and ambition as his.
6. Capricorn men are traditional.
In the world of dating the Capricorn man’s approach is traditional. This guy focuses on what matters, and he takes a long time to make decisions, establish true connections and make commitments. When they decide to make a move it may seem less than climatic, as it will generally be simple, like coffee.
Just know that a Capricorn man likes to woo his lady love slowly. First, it will be lunches and coffee, eventually dinner. Walks in the moonlight. And when it comes time to move forward in a relationship, a Capricorn man is most likely to ask your parents for their blessing in some way shape or form before advancing it.
The Capricorn men, for the most part, are gentlemen, and sexually wait for you to make a move before advancing. And don’t let their traditional, non-public affection, kind of introverted self fool you: these guys can rival other zodiac men in bed too.
7. He is straight-forward.
The Capricorn man likes to be straight forward, and he appreciates straight forward people as well. Because they are so practical, they have no qualms telling you how things are, even if you don’t want to hear it. This man doesn’t have time for mind games or dishonesty. Nor does he have the tolerance for it.
The great thing about Capricorn men is that they aren’t fake in any way, and they can see through others if they aren’t genuine as well. They don’t surround themselves with people who put on facades, and they are repelled by people who like to surround themselves with drama.
8. Capricorns are extremely protective.
Do not let their quietness be mistaken for passivity. They are simply pickier about when they decide to actively participate in a confrontation, no matter who’s involved. If the situation calls for it though, the Capricorn man will show his dark side, especially to protect his lover.
They are jealous as well, though he is not going to show it in the normal ways. It will come out as more of a questioning of you, the most minimal exposure to his vulnerability. A Capricorn man can be insecure, so they have a tendency to be quietly sensitive, protective and jealous.
Keep in mind these are just the basic traits you should know about. The more you understand the Capricorn male personality, the easier you will be able to understand this private earth sign and why he shows his love the way he does.
Signs A Capricorn Man Is Attracted To You
Now that you understand your Capricorn crush better, the big question remains: Does he like you? And how can you tell? And if he does, why is he taking such a long time to make a move? The Capricorn man likes to take his time, he likes to make sure he’s sure. Especially when persuing a new love relationship.
When a Capricorn makes the decision to love you, it’s an emotional investment for him. So the key is to be patient and let this Saturn ruled zodiac make the first move romantically. And don’t push him emotionally either, and wait for the following signs:
1. He will make time for you.
This may seem obvious with any relationship, but the workplace is the Capricorn man’s home away from home. He doesn’t just make time to rearrange his routine and life for just anyone. If he tries to see you on his breaks, or before or after work, just know that these are times he’s reserving specifically for you.
You will notice your Capricorn love is better over text messages than face to face conversation. If he is texting you more often, especially during work, just know that it could be a sign that a relationship is on its way.
2. A Capricorn in love will open up to you emotionally.
One of the signs that a Capricorn man likes you or feels comfortable enough with you emotionally, you will have a much better understanding of his point of view. He will be more open with you about the things he likes, dislikes, and everything in between. Even things like asking how his day went will be easier.
It’s at this point you will see that the Capricorn man actually has quite a sense of humor. While to most people he can seem to be all business, and serious, he’s actually very funny. In private, when it’s just the two of you, he will keep you smiling and laughing.
A Capricorn man will treat you formally in public, with the exception he may appear kinder or softer towards the one he loves. However, in private, things will be much different. They are passionate, and they bring that passion out when they are in the safety of solitude and privacy.
This also comes with a boon. Because they are more comfortable showing you their true feelings, you will get to experience the more grumpy nature of the Capricorn sign. Sometimes they can be moody, or sad, and they go to great lengths to hide it from people. Keep that in mind when looking for patience to deal with these mood swings.
3. Spending money on you is a good sign.
Again, this may be an obvious sign, but it’s also one of the most overlooked signs. The Capricorn man is frugal and simple. So when he has found someone he wants to have a relationship with, he will be more inclined to spend money on you.
Be aware though, that Capricorns are financially conscious. And even if they do not mind spending money on you, they will still keep track of how much it is. It is important that you do not appear to be whimsical about finances if you want your Capricorn man to stay attracted to you.
Capricorns don’t really hide this fact either. And because of this strange off-putting attitude, you may have been wary about letting him pay for your meal, to begin with. Try to get past it, and work with it if you can. He will get better at it and he doesn’t spend money on just anyone you know.
4. A Capricorn man will suddenly ask a lot of questions about you.
Another one of the overlooked signs a Capricorn man is attracted to you is he will suddenly appear to be very curious about you. Where you grew up, your middle name, favorite color, childhood favorite band, friends, family, everything.
A Capricorn man stays along with the practical and businesslike frame of mind. If he suddenly starts asking an uncomfortable amount of questions about you, take it as a sign that he is “interviewing” you for a relationship.
Capricorns, unlike some of the other more emotionally controlled Zodiacs, have to decide whether or not they want to or can love you, or even like you. Everything is a decision, and the decision they make they take their time with, and do their research. This is a type of emotional defense mechanism that Capricorns have.
They don’t like to make mistakes, and investing their heart into the wrong person can be considered very much a mistake. So they get to know you, not just how you are, but who you are and where you came from. And they genuinely want to know, so that they can understand how best to make you happy too.
One they decide to love you, they are deciding to change their way of life, and include you into their future. So he feels like he has to know you so that he can take care of you.
5. Capricorn men wanting a relationship will show physical affection.
Anyone who has ever dealt with a Capricorn emotionally or romantically, you know that they are just not really touchy-feely people. They like to show affection at their discretion, or when they are in the mood for it. And you most certainly won’t find them hugging their friends or sometimes even their family unless it’s to say goodbye.
So one of the more delightful signs a Capricorn man is in love with you is when he starts to hug and kiss you. It may start out slow though, like brushing his hands over yours or even holding hands. Don’t expect the physical affection to start pouring in right away, and remember that Capricorns are not fans of PDA.
Again in private, things will be much different than in a public setting. In private, he will wrap his arms around you, and kiss your neck gently. In public, he will hold your hand, but not much more than that. Public displays of affection will be subtle and small, and probably not include any physical contact whatsoever. Keep an eye out for the subtle sign of affection between you and your Capricorn.
6. He will include you in his business, and try to get involved with yours.
It’s important to the Capricorn male that you guys can work together. He will want you to be interested in his work or goals, and he will want you to invite him into yours. One of the sure signs a Capricorn man is in love with you is he will want to try and work with you on something.
If you two share a mutual hobby, passion, or idea, he will want to elaborate on it and work with you on the topic of interest. And he will take it very seriously. One sign your Capricorn may be falling in love with is if he wants to establish something with you that he is passionate about.
Things That Make A Capricorn Man Fall In Love.
The tricky part about a Capricorn man is getting them to decide you are worth being attracted to. These men are different than others. They are not ruled by sexual desire, they are not lured by seduction, or even by a truly consensual set of traits.
These signs are attracted to everything opposite of what media portrays as a ‘beautiful woman.’ Although having a rocking body doesn’t hurt, a Capricorn man is attracted to the most simple qualities a woman can display, and appearance will not affect a Capricorn’s decision on whether or not he wants to share his life with you.
So what does attract these particular star signs? Lucky for women everywhere, every single woman can be the kind of person a Capricorn wants to have a relationship with.
1. Show off your brain not your breasts.
Remember, the Capricorn is practical and business-minded. He doesn’t care for public displays of affection, nor does he care for women who put themselves on display either. His possessive nature makes him the kind of man who wants a lady in the streets, and a freak in the sheets.
If you have been running around trying to get his attention by wearing low cut shirts and high top skirts, he’s probably already decided you’re either vain or slutty. You’ll need to turn that wardrobe around and strike up an intellectual conversation to get his attention.
If you already are pretty conservative, and you’ve had the opportunity to show that you are ambitious and intellectual, chances are he may already be looking at you.
2. Be straight forward and keep it real.
A Capricorn isn’t going to love someone who can’t keep things 100 percent honest with him. He is not someone who tolerates fake people in his inner circle, and he can see through a dishonest personality like a knife through cheese.
The tedious thing about Capricorns is that they notice everything. And chances are they already know whether or not you’re being fake because they had taken the time to observe you before approaching you. It doesn’t matter what your personality is, as long as it’s real and genuine, the Capricorn will most likely like you.
They also have a knack for remembering fakeness. A Capricorn scorned or deceived can be as unpleasant as an angry Taurus.
3. Don’t be overly flirtatious.
It’s a big turn-off for this zodiac sign if you are overly flirtatious with him. He will see it as ‘throwing yourself at him,’ which is unattractive. He will also wonder if you flirt with every man that way. Capricorns are possessive, and they aren’t interested in a woman they will have to worry about ‘keeping in check.’
Don’t worry about trying to impress that Capricorn, because one too many flirtations can seem fake to him. Laugh when it’s appropriate, don’t make the first move and don’t try to seduce him. If he is interested in you, he will let you know.
4. Leave some for the imagination.
Don’t overshare on the first, second or maybe even the third date. The Capricorn has his own process in which he decides if you are the one he’s going to love, so let him be in charge of information flow. Be honest, and answer his questions plainly, and offer information when it’s asked.
Take the time to get to know him the way he is trying to get to know you. That is important to this star sign because even though they may seem distant and stand-offish, he craves for his love interest to be as interested in him as he is in her.
5. Be drama-free and keep your life private.
Leave your drama whatever it started, because Capricorns loathe it just as much as they do fakeness. One thing that will drive your Capricorn far away from you is if you have a tendency to blast your affairs for the world to see.
Keep your problems with other people private. Even if someone is blasting you on social media and calling you out, trying to start an argument: Do. Not. Do. It. It is one of the fastest ways to lose all respect from your Capricorn man.
6. Be trustworthy and supportive of his ambition.
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Support his career ambitions. Have your own ambitions. Whatever you do, don’t be stagnant. Capricorns want a meaningful life, and for them, that is a good career, a good house, and a good family.
Attracting The Goat Is Not Easy, But Worthwhile.
You do these simple things, and the Capricorn man is sure to love you for the rest of his life. These zodiac signs can be the best husbands and fathers, but they are truly a star sign that feels you have to be ‘worth’ their time and emotional investment.
While this can seem callous, it helps the Capricorn pick out an ideal lover without having to go through the fuss and heartbreak that other signs go through when finding love. Remember: be patient, work on yourself, and let him take the lead.
