In the kitchen cupboard, there may be only one plate, one bowl, and one cup – because it seemed impractical to buy more “for no reason.” If you move in, you might want to bring your own. But beware: Trying to effect changes in the established ways of a Capricorn man might have you seeing his horns. He has things set up the way they are for a very good reason (in his own mind), and it will take a steady supply of rational arguments to convince him that shifting things around might actually be a good idea. This resistance to change and new ideas can also result in a traditionalism that might make his house look exactly like every other one on the block – with a white picket fence and beige paint. But inside, it is another story.
He will be exceptionally cautious of making a commitment until he knows that your traits and lifestyle are compatible with his. He is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so again don’t be misled if his interest appears mainly platonic for a long time.
The Capricorn man prefers to live by the rules. Extremely determined and goal oriented, he believes in following well-laid plans to achieve success. He is very serious and practical about attaining what he wants most: respect, social status and financial security. He’ll often lose himself in achieving his goals, but he’ll do so with honesty and integrity.
Dating a Capricorn man will be a long and difficult but incredibly rewarding process. They are dynamic and ambitious men who strive to be the best and are patiently determined to win. A Capricorn man doesn’t have time for anyone who’s needy or an obstacle to his success. So, a woman who’s her own person is perhaps the most attractive woman to a Capricorn man. It’s also important to note that possibly the best thing about a Capricorn man is they age in reverse. The older they get, the more fun they are. And since they’re in a relationship for the long-haul, this bodes well for their lucky partner.
Once he’s transcended his lowly station, a Capricorn man has to work hard to remember where he came from and stay somewhat humble – as it’s easy for the deadly combination of ego, power, and money to turn Mr. Goat into a bit of a tyrant. These men often end up in positions of power, moving from their rags-to-riches origins into positions where they have control and responsibility over many people. Government roles and work in finance often appeal to these lovers of stability, law, and order.
Capricorn men are very good looking men. That is fortunate for them since they are often too shy to approach women. They just stand there and look tall, strong and attractive, and the ladies come to them.
I very much enjoyed reading your hub! I’m an astrological nut, so I read about it a lot. I think yours was practical and cute. I especially liked your statement: “I believe studying astrology makes for a more tolerant attitude towards those that are different from you.” I agree. Thanks again for the interesting read!
Keep dramatics to a minimum. Capricorns seek stability–they want someone who is devoted and serious about the relationship. Hysterics or mind games will turn a Capricorn off a relationship. If he upsets you, tell him what he has done and why it upsets you. Your Capricorn wants to make you happy and when you tell him directly what you need or what you dislike, he will do everything in his power to make sure he does not upset you in that way again.
Always respect special occasions and be as practical as you can. He can surprise by his openness for all sorts of weird things, but before you get to know him, it is best to stick to the traditional, historical, educational, useful gifts that can last for a very long time. He has an understanding for art with a lot of detail, small but expensive signs of affection, and likes things neat and to the point. Choose a present that makes sense, that’s probably the best way to put it.
The Goat is methodical and will become friends with a woman before he decides to move into a romantic relationship. Once the woman he is interested in makes her move and he is in an intimate relationship, he is quite the romantic. Chivalry is not dead! However, when he does fall in love, he won’t tell her. She will know the moment he does, probably by the way he looks at her and increases his acts of service. He can be a bit on the picky side, but if you can get the Goat he is worth keeping.
The Gemini woman and Capricorn man are almost total opposites. Gemini is ever-changing, which Capricorn will never understand. On the flipside, she may not like his love of rules and traditions. If they do manage to make things work it could make for a delightfully quirky pairing!
The Goats are generous and wise, and are admired for their logical thinking and simple outlook towards life. Their concepts are very simple and clear and these men will consciously try not to make matters complicated. They will utilise their energies in the proper direction and come up with practical, acceptable ideas. They take relationships very seriously. They will not commit to a relationship unless they feel they can do justice to it. You will never see them giving half-hearted attempts.
If you’re lucky enough to be invited in, you’ll see his library stuffed with rare books, or his collection of unusual objects and antiques related to a historical era that has captivated him. These men often own their homes and tend to stay put in them for years – unless they are forced to move by external reasons like rising property taxes or a career opportunity too good to pass up.
They often have an intrinsic need to challenge themselves. Pessimistic by nature they sometimes have a slight inferiority complex or fear of failure, which drives them so hard to both succeed, and stand on their own two feet doing so. Respect, recognition and praise are important to them, as is their public image.
Hard as this is to swallow, you’ll need to carve out areas where he gets to be dominant. It may be the bedroom, or choosing where you live, or tolerating his boys’ nights out without interrogating him for details. Can you live with that? Our feminist principles recoil at the notion, but we also know that love comes with its own set of rules. Sometimes, a powerhouse diva just craves the arms of a big, strong man. Early childhood patterns figure in, too. As the zodiac’s father sign, the Capricorn man appeals to an only child, a daddy’s girl, or the daughter of an absentee/difficult father. You could either work out those issues with a therapist, or with him.
A Capricorns greatest strength is his ability to set goals and pursue them until attained. Nothing gets in the way of a Capricorn’s plans and ambitions, and they don’t like taking shortcuts or cheating as either devalues their later satisfaction.
Capricorn men can be somewhat craggy emotionally, but they are also sexy as hell – much like an embodiment of Pan, the goat-footed Grecian god. If you’re willing to put up with his sometimes cantankerous moods, your Capricorn man will reward you with steadfastness, loyalty, and regular, dedicated servicing in the bedroom. He will doggedly apply his famous work ethic toward your pleasure. A Cap man aims to please, and if you tell him what you like, he’ll do it until you can’t take any more!
We have a dedicated section for Capricorn man gifts with examples of the types of gifts which Capricorn men enjoy within various categories from naughty to practical, including reader submitted suggestions.
The Capricorn woman and Capricorn man will have a deep understanding of each other. With their determination and work ethic, there’s nothing this pair can’t achieve. Their biggest problem is that they’ll become so wrapped up in their responsibilities that they never take time out for fun.
Show off your intellect. Capricorn guys are attracted to intellect above anything else. Regardless of the gorgeous outfit you’re wearing or your ridiculously gorgeous face, if you come across as ditzy or rather air-headed, your Capricorn may lose interest. Instead, show off your beautiful brain by engaging him in some stellar conversation. However, keep your cool and remain composed–don’t guffaw if he makes a joke.
They are dependable, particularly in a crisis, though they dislike chaos and unpredictability. When asked, they give sound, practical advice. As a rule they’re not aggressive people, and only express hostility as a defense.
Of course, should he become a father before he’s ready, this could be a different story. The unestablished Capricorn can be a total deadbeat dad. His sign can only focus on one thing at a time, and he doesn’t do well when life happens out of sequence. In his mind, the path goes: love, financial security, marriage, kids. When an unscheduled pregnancy messes with the master plan, he’s forced to juggle his duties, something he’s not very good at. To Capricorn, not being able to provide for his kids is the ultimate shame. This is the father who may be estranged from his children until much later in life, when he’s found the wisdom and direction to face them with dignity.
Take charge guy that he is, he’s also shy and reserved. Parties can make him uneasy and social settings often make him uncomfortable. So, it’s in such situations he’ll appreciate his partner taking the lead. You’ll be a great asset to a Capricorn man if you’re friendly, outgoing, and sociable. He’s a gentle man with a great sense of humor that tends to be a bit sardonic, so don’t be afraid to show off your witty humor. Just don’t flirt or do anything that will embarrass him.
Even if a Capricorn man is attracted to you, you might have to make the first move. A Goat guy will often become close friends with a woman before considering a romantic relationship with her. This gives him a chance to really get to know her before he commits. Keep him interested by complimenting him with sincere praise and never tossing a wrench in his plans. Let him see you as a supportive partner as well as a love interest.
The creative and adventurous Aquarius woman may find the Goat a little boring. And because of his possessive nature, the Water-bearer will often feel trapped. It may seem that she’s simply too free-spirited for the traditional Capricorn man. Both will need to step out of their comfort zones a bit to find common ground.
This is always a hard question to answer, as one person’s idea of kinky can be very different to someone else’s. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in. All things being equal though, Capricorn men are amongst the more kinky, yes.
When you’re officially dating a Capricorn man, all the first date tips still apply. However, probably the most important thing to understand about a Capricorn man is he takes his career very seriously. He’s not a 9 to 5, weekends off sort of guy. So, dating may be catch as catch can. Just don’t take that as a lack of interest and don’t rush him or push him into anything. He’ll think more of you if have a life of your own and even more if you’re also a busy career oriented person. Still, the more available you are to him, the more available he’ll be to you.
The Goat is often a loner who permits few people into his inner circle, as many Capricorns are shy. Because of Capricorn’s suspicious nature, you’ll have to prove your trustworthiness before he accepts you as a friend. Once you’ve accomplished this feat, a Capricorn man will be your loyal, dependable, supportive companion. But if you ever break the bond of trust don’t count on getting a second chance. The Goat will move on and never look back.
The Goat is stubborn. Many Capricorn men wait until well into their 40s to settle down. He won’t marry until he’s reached a few of his major milestones: traveling Latin America, becoming a board-certified surgeon, selling his first business. A firm footing on his chosen life path gives him the confidence to commit.
Okay, now for the warning label. This is sticky territory that we hate to cover, but feel we must. If you want a working relationship with Capricorn, ask yourself: How willing am I to be submissive? There will be compromises and power dynamics to navigate. If you’re a go-getter who accomplishes goals at the speed of sound, take extra care that he doesn’t feel left behind. Should you be more established than your Cap, you’ll need to bolster his ego (without being obvious) and let him build his own empire, at his own ambling pace. Excruciating patience is a must.
Tone down your flashy fashion. Capricorn men are pretty reserved. Because of this, they tend to be attractive towards partners who dress in a sophisticated but more conservative manner. Breaking out your flashing stilettos and cut-out dress is probably not the best way to attract your man. Go for a classy look with a touch of femininity.
Forget about inviting him to a party. Instead, invite him on a picnic, for a walk in the park, or even for dinner at your place…just some activity where the two of you can be alone, talk and get to know one another.
When it comes to official dating, a Capricorn man expects commitment and exclusivity. Proving you’re worthy of his trust is paramount to having a successful, long-term relationship with a Capricorn man. He likes to think of his partner as his own prize, and he doesn’t want her to show interest in anyone else. He’s also a bit traditional in that he’s not into public displays of affection. Plus, he doesn’t like his private life to become public knowledge. So, avoid gossiping or telling your friends all the private details of your relationship.
Down to earth, self motivated, patient and responsible. Capricorn men are generally among the harder signs to understand, with a number of personality traits which often confuse partners in the early stages of a relationship.
A Capricorn man enjoys his solitude. So, don’t take it to heart if he seems to be avoiding you. Understand he will not dive heart first into a relationship. Just show him you’re interested, in it to win, and be willing to wait.
To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what’s involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
Don’t play mind games. One thing a Capricorn guy will not participate in is a relationship mind game. If you are into him, make it clear and then wait for him to meet you halfway. Do not try to make him jealous by parading another guy around in front of him, acting passive aggressively, or playing ‘hard to get’. With a Capricorn guy, this will have the opposite of the desired effect–he will move on speedily and without a glance back.
I do not study Astrology to predict the future, but I do study it to learn about others. It is extremely fascinating to see a part of one’s behavior come to life once you understand the astrological reason for it. I believe studying astrology makes for a more tolerant attitude towards those that are different from you. That is my opinion.
