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.
Once you’re in love with a Capricorn man, you might feel that you only see him early in the morning before he heads off to work, or else late at night after he’s pulled a long shift at the office. As long as you have your own thing going on and are comfortable dating a workaholic, this should work out well. All the better if you are a generally optimistic sort of person who can stay happy and cheerful even when dealing with the grumpiest curmudgeon. Are you and your Cap a good match? Find out here.
Work is generally very important to Capricorn men and they don’t take it lightly, holding fast to duty and responsibility, partly because they want to look good in front of the world, and partly for the security such behavior brings. Typically they prefer employment rather than the greater risk/reward of self employment.
When you link up with a Capricorn man for the long haul, it’s not just to live happily ever after. It’s to raise a family, make his ancestors proud, create a legacy, and pass on wisdom to the next generation. No pressure or anything.
Keep the PDA to a minimum. PDA (public displays of affection) are not really the Capricorn’s cup of tea. While holding hands is probably fine (he might even prefer holding hands because of his protective nature) making out in the middle of a busy street will probably make him feel a bit uneasy. Capricorns don’t really like having their private lives become public knowledge, so you may want to think twice before grabbing him by the suit lapels and giving him a smooch in public.
The Capricorn man wants a relationship that’s built to last. He’ll take pains to make sure you’re a solid bet, and the evaluation process could be lengthy. He prefers to meet people through trusted sources like family or friends, or at a comfortable hangout where he doesn’t feel awkward and out of place. To Capricorn, relationships are an obligation he takes very seriously. He doesn’t commit to anyone unless he knows he can give it his all. Sure, he may go through the boyfriend motions, but he’ll usually back out before it goes too far.
Should you find yourself on such Freudian turf, be careful. The allure of this daddy-daughter dynamic can find you willingly handing over your power, making too many compromises to keep him. He can become a real tyrant if you open that door. Take care not to muffle your voice or strength with Capricorn. Pave the road for equality early with this guy unless you want to create your own personal Mussolini. Decide where you’re okay letting him rule the roost, and stand firm in your boundaries everywhere else. Guard your “sacred space.” Try this visualization: imagine drawing a line of demarcation, and planting your body firmly on that border like an impervious iron wall that nobody—not even your Cap—can penetrate. He may not like it, but you’ll win his respect, which is ultimately one of the most important cornerstones for long-term love with a Capricorn.
The Taurus woman and Capricorn man usually mesh wonderfully together. The Goat provides the security the Bull seeks, and both will revel in their stable, dependable relationship and loving home life. Keeping the spark alive between these two down-to-earth types may take some work.

No, this article is based only on sun signs. Those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone’s personality.
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.
There is a paradox in the sign of Capricorn. On one hand, it is a sign of Mars’ exaltation and this gives a Capricorn man enough sexuality and stamina to endure in incredibly satisfying sexual relations for a very long time. On the other, Capricorn and its ruler Saturn inhibit every action that has no depth, and he will not be much of a lover unless he builds a true emotional bond first. When he does, that’s a different story, but he needs time to understand that what is needed for a great sex life is – emotion.
This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information – everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.
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.
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.

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!
Your Capricorn man is likely to be a very adventurous lover, which may come as a surprise when compared to his otherwise restrained and stand-offish exterior. Contrary to his cool demeanor, he is remarkably playful in bed, and will prefer fun’ sex to the heavy or serious. He will also enjoy laughing in bed, and appreciate a sense of humor. Don’t be surprised if he suggests making love at either your place of work or his, it seems to be a common fantasy with Capricorns!
With a down-to-earth personality, Capricorn men are the most hardworking of all the signs in the zodiac. This is thanks to their ability to focus intently on the work at hand, whatever it may be, and steadily make progress until they attain their goal. Slowly but surely, one cloven hoof in front of the other, the determined Goat man will climb his own personal mountain with a combination of extraordinary perseverance and dedication to duty.
One of my first hubs describes love languages. In the recommended book, the author also encourages couples to date for two years before they marry. This gives them enough time to get to know each other. It also allows time for the honeymoon phase to wear off, and the couple will know if they are experiencing true love or infatuation.
These Goats work with single-minded dedication, give all that they can to reach their goals and achieve their dreams. The Goats are ambitious, patient, often quite successful and will avoid self-praise.
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.
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!
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.
He is strong, reliable, confident and sure of his choices, while at the same time practical and focused on his goals, with a perfect plan for the future. On the downside, he can be demanding, cold and distant, uncompassionate and strict, with expectations that make everyone around him feel guilty or inadequate
This man may act completely disinterested in gift-giving holidays, but believe that he’s hoping you’ve discovered his wish list and have gotten him something in secret. Better act quick and get it for him before he buys it for himself, though – because a practical and often morose Capricorn doesn’t always expect to be treated by anyone else.
Without a doubt, but only if he has made a decision to be faithful, honest and monogamous. In any other scenario, everything can be expected and he will act in the way he thinks appropriate. In general, he fears the feeling of guilt, and as far as his awareness goes, he will not hurt, lie or cheat on anyone intentionally. Still, it is a sign ruled by Saturn, the planet of our unconscious, and he sometimes loses control over his choices, not even aware of it. This is the reason why he likes to control every little thing, thinking he can avoid his own irresponsible actions.
You may feel that the Goats are slightly cold, detached and emotionally aloof. However, it is the Capricorn man’s way of protecting his emotions. They take a long time to open up, express their love and share their experiences. You have to give them enough reasons to trust your sincerity. Since they protect themselves so carefully, people find it very difficult to connect with them emotionally. This is why their desire for love, respect, and praise often goes unfulfilled. They are friendly and love to mix with people but you cannot expect them to be the partying types. Even at social gatherings they will behave conservatively. You will never find them behaving in a flashy way.
While the Capricorn man is reserved, he’s far from being an unenthusiastic lover. He’s not a playboy, but he’s a man who can give himself fully to a deep intimacy with the right person. He’s a patient man who has an innate understanding of ways to please his lover and always strives to be best. It may take a while to get him in bed, but a night with a Capricorn man is worth working and waiting for. As with everything in a Capricorn man’s life, success is the goal. So, if you want a Capricorn man to do something special, challenge him and he’ll be eager to please.
Know that he will spend some late nights at the office. Capricorn is known as the workaholic of the zodiac signs. He takes his job very seriously and will be working overtime on occasion. Be prepared for this and know that it is not a sign of him losing interest in your relationship. He really does just take his job seriously and wants to do the best work he can.
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.
