Dating Your Capricorn Man

If you are dating a Capricorn man, you probably had to ask him out. This man usually keeps to himself for the most part. He harbors deep, deep feelings, and is extremely selective when it comes to choosing those he opens up to. Don’t be too fooled by the cold, sober personality of the Capricorn man. Although introverted, he is strong emotionally and physically. He is one of the most determined Sun signs in the Zodiac. He is generally quiet in nature, but will have no problem holding a lengthy intelligent conversation if he feels like it. He is organized and pays attention to detail.

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.

Capricorn Man in Love

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 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.

Not all Capricorns are the Same

The Sun sign is only one dominant influence in someone’s astrological natal chart. There are 10 astrological planets, 12 houses, and the aspects between them. If you ever have your chart read by an Astrologer, other parts of your personality will be revealed through many other planetary influences.

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.

I’m happy you the time it took to read my hub. Please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, or constructive criticism in the comments section provided below. Your opinion is always welcomed and appreciated. Thank you so much for your interest in my work.

      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.

      I'm an Aries woman my husband of 10 years is a capricorn at first it was a lil difficult to understand him because capricorns are not the types to open up to any they have to feel comfortable they always have their guard up when it comes to a relationship.once he started to notice that it's okay between us he started opening up more tell me things about him self his secrets even smile because they are very serious ppl but when they smile you have to be special to them they look so cute I love seeing my cap smile.i came to a conclusion to deal with a cap its been working and I been a happy woman.

      My cappy guy epxressed to me yhat for 10 yrs he wanted me badly. At first I was very skeptical about giving in but after awhile I said why not. It wad like a match made in heaven and I was for certain he was my guy until I expressed more and more my undying love for him that he started acting differently towards me. Hr stopped answering my calls but when he became ready is when he would reach out which emotionally confused me. On top of me finding out that I wad carrying his baby he still was distant but would text. Im trying to figure him out but im am emotional virgo who wants love and affection not rejection. Most of the characteristics you described suits him well I love this man but i dont know if its emotionally healthy for me.

      Johnny g, It can be very difficult to open up when it comes to your feelings. That is completely understandable. It may have to do with trust issues. Stop and think about it for a moment. If you are with someone you love and trust, what do you have to lose? Sure you risk rejection. Rejection can be painful, but it is also a growing experience. If the one you love truly loves you, he/she will accept your feelings, and appreciate your honesty. If it doesn't work out, you can live with yourself and knowing you were honest, and use the experience. Each relationship is a learning experience, helping you to learn what you truly want and don't want in a partner. That being said, however, I truly believe that if you can muster the courage to open up and make yourself a bit vulnerable, you will be pleasantly surprised. Good Luck!!

      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!

      Thank you for your comment, Claudia. I took an interest in Astrology several years ago, exactly for the same reason; as an avenue to learn about and understand others. I have a series of hubs on the basics. Learning about the significance of the houses and planets is a good place to start. There are many good books you can buy, as well. I recommend you actually purchase books instead of getting them from the library so you have them to reference at will. Good luck!

      I read this and felt a very strong YES!!! I WANT TO Do THAT TOO!! Can you give some advice on how to start my studies. I know a little bit but not much...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.

      Intelligent conversation if he feels like it-that's true

      In addition, their good sense of humor makes the conversation is so enjoyable.

      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.

      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!

      Voted up and up!
