With traits that are often perceived as cold, callous, and uncaring, the Capricornian male’s secret is his raw and sensitive heart, which he feels he must keep shielded from the world. It’s common for these men to take a cynical or nihilistic view of most people, and not many are ever really invited into his inner circle. On top of that, you may not meet too many of these elusive Sea-Goats (unless you work with them), because they don’t tend to be incredibly social personalities.
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.
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.
These two opposites don’t bring out the best in each other. Sagittarius woman is all about having fun, while the Goat is focused on responsibilities. Her free-spirited independence can make him feel insecure, and she may feel smothered by his possessiveness. Needless to say, a relationship between these two will take some work.
Trust your man. Capricorn men are known to take their love lives–like their jobs–very seriously. As such, your Capricorn will probably not be the cheating type. Once he has fallen for you, he will work hard to keep your relationship going. Though it takes Capricorn guys a while to open up, once he has made his decision about you, know that you have a very devoted guy by your side.
The Capricorn man in your life may be a mysterious paradox. Due to hard his reticent nature, it may feel like he’s hard to get to truly know. These men tend to build high, icy walls around their true inner selves that only the most intrepid climbers can eventually scale.
Security is very important to this man, and he will prefer a stable and down to earth lover. He often admires those who are hard-working or have ambition over those who are more physically attractive but lacking in ambition. He has very little tolerance for lazy people, and often enjoys the company of optimists over pessimists
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.
Life with a Capricorn man may not be a-thrill-a-minute, but he will provide security and stability for his mate and for his family. The Goat isn’t known for having a bad temper, nor is he moody. He is sometimes pessimistic, but the right companion can overcome this and brighten his outlook. Surprisingly, despite their generally subdued nature, Capricorn men are often adventurous lovers who enjoy playful rollicks in the bedroom.
The Capricorn man is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, but can be somewhat inhibited in expressing his emotions, sometimes preferring to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures. If he seems more interested in being your personal handyman than getting you into bed, this is just his way of showing he cares!
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!
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.
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.
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.
I like the pace you describe here – of getting to know someone before moving forward. For some reason, there are a lot of men who want to get married right away, but haven’t known you that long. I’m the opposite – I at least want to get to know someone before signing the dotted line!
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.
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.
When a Capricorn man falls in love, the first thing he will do is start acting strange. He is not familiar with emotion, in general, and he will look at the subject of his desire as an extraterrestrial that came down to Earth only to confuse him. This will pass with the first love, maybe with the second, but there is always that probability that he will look at his loving partner as someone from another world or time. He will have to learn slowly how to act in order to win someone’s heart. If he is lucky enough for his first stroke of love to be returned, there is a chance he will remain in the same relationship for a very long time, maybe even for as long as they both shall live. He is one of the most stable, stubborn, deeply emotional signs in the zodiac. He never takes anything lightly, and he refuses to be superficial, which makes his emotions profound and real when they finally surface
The Scorpio woman and the Capricorn man are both slow to trust and commit, so this relationship will take some time. Once it does, it will be beneficial to both parties. Scorpio’s intense passion will provide Capricorn with the emotional security he needs, and his undying devotion will make her feel truly loved.
The happy-go-lucky Libra woman may have a real problem with Capricorn’s somber outlook, while the Goat may consider her frivolous and capricious. It may take some work for these two to really understand one another.
While the Capricorn man is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, he can be somewhat inhibited in expressing his emotions. One way this is apparent is that he often prefers to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures.
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 committed, a Capricorn man is a take charge guy so let him call the shots. He’ll certainly want to make you happy and once committed to a relationship, like in his career, long-term success is his end game. So, if there’s something you want, like, or dislike, tell him calmly and directly, and he’ll do everything he can to make sure it does or does not happen again.
Capricorns love dark comedies and, if they can find a way to laugh and find humor in the even the bleakest situations, they’ll be able to manage their innate, melancholic bent for dwelling on the negative aspects of life. They might not display their oddness overtly, but remember that a traditional-looking or acting Capricorn man is actually an extremely peculiar and particular sort of fellow beneath that nondescript veneer.
Invite him to a quiet evening in. The best way to get to know your Capricorn guy, and show him that you’re the real deal, is by taking the first leap. Invite him over for dinner, on a picnic, or to do something else just the two of you. Inviting him to a big party will generally make him uneasy, while inviting him for dinner will most likely make him open up. This is also your time to shine–bring up topics that you are passionate about and allow him to relaxing into a stimulating conversation.
A Capricorn is going to have money to take you out to dinner, and will absolutely have his own place (male Caps will typically try to purchase property early in life) – and not only that, these guys will already be in charge of their own empire.
Expect to find some unusual tastes underneath that business suit or work clothes, whether it’s a CEO type who lives for black metal music or a tough-looking construction worker who goes regularly to the symphony.
Once the Goat admits to finding the love of his life, he will never give up trying to woo her. This is, remember, the most determined sign. He prefers his woman to wear conservative clothing to leave more to the imagination. He is classy and sophisticated. He doesn’t appreciate a woman to be dressed sloppily, and great hygiene is a definite must.
The Goats are conservative by nature and prefer to play by the rules. They are very protective of their emotional and financial security, and will not take anyone on face value. You will have to put in a lot of effort to prove your trustworthiness to get close to the Goat. If your sweetheart is a Capricorn, and you wish to get married, you would be better off first getting your Kundali Matching done. Some other characteristics of the Capricorn men are given here below.
Most Capricorn men aren’t superficial, so they don’t look for the flashiest woman in the room. In fact, most Goat guys prefer intelligence and character over looks in a prospective mate, so keep this in mind when trying to get his attention. He wants a life partner who shares his goals and one who will help him achieve success. In view of this, make sure he doesn’t see you as a bimbo. Instead, be quiet, serious and intelligent, and dress conservatively.
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.
Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don’t however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.
Afraid is the wrong word for it, though this is a valid question, as they often come across this way. Capricorn men typically enjoy people, though they are often thoughtful, self-contained and shy. Their quiet exterior can make them appear to be loners, often building a wall of reserve around themselves. They are very loyal to those they care for, but often cold to those outside of their circle of friends and family. They are often highly cautious and analytical when making new friends.

Not gonna happen. The Capricorn man’s worst nightmare goes something like this: You arrive at a party with your Capricorn hubby Rob, and the hostess steers you into the living room for introductions. “Everyone, this is Amy. She’s an amazing trial lawyer who’s just made partner at her firm, and she’s running for city council! Oh, and this is her husband Rob. He’s been working odd jobs for the last ten years, while dreaming up how to make his millions. Amy pays the mortgage in the meanwhile, but we know that’s just a short-term thing—right? Everyone, say hello to Amy and Rob!”
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!
We cape’s are pretty easy to please. We won’t be forced to do anything. We don’t like folks who brag, we are very business minded so everything needs to be fair for both people involved. We don’t trust easily, we have to warm up to you but we are loyal friends, we don’t show too much emotion but if we love you we love hard. Don’t ever snoop through our possessions. We love our privacy. We are uber reliable. When we are done we are done. Don’t ever try to embarrass us especially in public. if we get mad run for the hills. Show us the same love and appreciation we show you, basically mirror our behavior, its that simple.
Your Capricorn will have his own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example his moon sign determines his emotional personality which affects whether he is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.
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.
The Leo woman loves the center of attention, while the Goat is an introvert. With this pair, arguments about money could be numerous because she loves to spend extravagantly while he’s a penny-pincher. Embracing their differences will be key to beating the odds when it comes to love between these two.
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.
From just someone’s sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it’s too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
