Loving a Capricorn is going to require a bit of effort on your part, but the payback in a devoted, passionate mate is worth it. They are ambitious, determined, practical, helpful, loyal, and resourceful. You have to be pretty damn sure of your feelings before attempting to date a Capricorn and be sure to tread lightly, otherwise, you’re just wasting your time and can lose their interest before you ever really had it.
While it can be one of the most frustrating and unpredictable, but also one of the most fulfilling relationships. As the Saturn goat’s potential mate, here are some important things to keep in mind if you have a Capricorn in your life:
1. They’re not easily impressed. As careful as they are, they just want to feel special.
Capricorns have high standards in love. They’re very careful with their affections, and they won’t throw themselves at just anybody. They usually choose their love partners carefully as they have a high idealized view of marriage and relationships. They demand high standards of behavior from their lover. They want genuine.
A genuine person, genuinely interested in them to an extent, and willing to make a genuine attempt is really all they ask. Not overly romantic, not an obnoxious attempt at attention, not something that undermines their worth, and you should be on the right track to winning them over.
The Capricorn in a relationship always wants to feel that there is no one else in the world like them. They just want to feel special, in the world of the two! While they might have seemingly unreasonably high standards for a potential partner, it’s really quite simple to make them feel like one in a million. A Capricorn woman is likely to be passionate in her emotions, loving and hating to the extreme.
She is likely to pour her entire self into the relationship and would expect no less from her partner. This is why a Capricorn woman makes one of the most passionate of lovers and a romantic relationship with her is one breathless experience after another. For Capricorns, love is an all-or-nothing affair.
2. They are overly cautious with their hearts and they’re slow to fall in love.
In love, Capricorn is as cautious and reserved as they are in other areas of life. They are not easily won. They may even come across as snobbish at times, however, this is not true. They are simply shy and reserved, a quiet type that does not reveal their feelings to just anyone. The goat does not wear their heart on its sleeve.
A Capricorn will often mask their feelings, in fear of exposing too much of themselves. They may appear to be aloof at first, calculating the risks of getting involved in a relationship. They may give the impression that they are not interested, however, when you get to know them they can be really warm and caring.
Underneath the mask, Capricorn wears other masks. It can take a long time to discover the real person underneath. Others see Capricorn as indifferent and hard to reach because they are so self-contained.
In a relationship, a Capricorn will take things very slowly. Sometimes, they will be painfully slow when entering a partnership, because it takes a long time for them to feel secure in their decisions. They will always take things one step at a time. Their words are sparse, but in a relationship, a Capricorn loves through action, so pay attention to how they act around you.
You can usually figure out what is going through their mind by assessing their body language and their effort. Capricorns are genuine, generous, and sincere, and if they tell you that they love you know that those words hold a lot of meaning to them. They are also slow to marriage. They take it super seriously. Once they are married, they are married forever.
They never, ever want to break up and they are super committed to you. So, they want to make sure that they are making the right choice when they are proposing and getting married.
3. They are always right. A little bossy they are!
Capricorn doesn’t like arguing but they love proving people wrong who assassinate their character or lie on them. Capricorns are very intuitive and good at reading people. Nine times out of ten, they will be right about you. So In a relationship with Capricorns, don’t lie to them. Don’t try to prove them wrong unless you have solid proof.
Capricorns are pretty self-centered in relationships. A Capricorn wants to be in control of everything, including relationships. Capricorns are fiercely independent and maybe even a little bossy. They are trying to document and organize others. They can be pretty stubborn in an argument when someone is proving them wrong.
They are born leaders and highly self-motivated. This is why you’ll often find Capricorns in supervisory or management positions (yes, at home and work) as telling other people what to do and the best way to do it is their thing. Yet, in matters of the heart, a Capricorn’s need to stay on top can sometimes come off as overbearing or domineering by a partner who may need a little more 50/50 in a relationship.
To drive an already slightly unstable sign even closer to the edge, they have this burning sense of “do everything on my own” and “I don’t need you” that fights against their desire to fall into feelings.
4. They can be pretty materialistic.
Capricorns are determined to finish everything that needs to be finished. They are drawn to the fine things in life. They would rather take care of the material needs first and then build up emotional truths, enter marriage. A Capricorn wants to be financially secure in a relationship, before and after marriage.
They don’t feel safe until they’ve accumulated a large nest egg and have lots of possessions. Sometimes, they can become very materialistic, but this only occurs when they know that they deserve these certain things.
They have a somewhat unfair reputation for giving status a higher priority than love when they choose a partner, but it is true that on the Capricorn compatibility list, ambitious partners will score more highly than laid-back ones, all other things being equal. Money after all can’t buy love.
5. They’re extremely faithful and don’t flirt outside of the relationship.
They are as passionate about love and can be romantic as any other zodiac sign. Truth is, once you win their heart, they have the capability to make you special in the grandest way. If you have a Capricorn’s heart, They can throw expensive dinner parties, or buy you expensive gifts; everything just to make you loved and special.
They love their partners and they aren’t scared to do anything and everything for them. Capricorn is a sign that will be there for you no matter what and that will care for you no matter what you are going through. They will support you, no matter what you are doing. Capricorns have tremendous endurance and strength for survival. They need trust… and they also give a lot of reason for their partners to trust them.
They want to be there for you and they truly want you to succeed in whatever your dreams are. They will be there every step of the way. You can depend on a Capricorn for any and everything, no matter what it is. They are the type to take hold of a problem and solve it too. Capricorn is one of the safest signs when it comes to a faithful partner.
Capricorns are against flirting outside of the relationship. This is the trait that you’ve got to consider whenever you are dealing with a Capricorn. They don’t want someone to flirt with their partner and they won’t ever flirt with someone that is not with them. It’s just their nature!
Devoted partners and lovers, Capricorn-born individuals do not take shortcuts. They prefer the security of the traveled road and want to be certain that they arrive at their destination. Relationships with a Capricorn become better over time …
6. They won’t always admit their feelings at first.
Capricorns don’t usually bring their problems to others, but instead, suffer in silence. They find it hard to open up to other people and so have difficulty establishing deep relationships. You can be intimately dating a Capricorn for two years before they will willingly and regularly admit their feelings for you. It’s just the way they are.
The mushy-gushy feelings really just don’t process the same way with them. It actually makes them slightly nauseous. With a Capricorn, love is revealed through their actions and commitment. It is the rare Capricorn who is gifted with words where emotions are concerned; most are more focused on building something that lasts and taking care of responsibilities.
Don’t expect flowery words and romantic surprises from your Capricorn, but if their love is true they will prove it with commitment and respect.
7. They’re very tolerant but don’t push them to the edge. You may be the one that goes over.
Capricorn is super tolerant in a relationship. Much like a Pisces, this particular sign will take a lot and it does typically take a lot for them to blow up. Fighting is really easy with a Capricorn because they just take it and they have a really good handle on their anger, while other signs might blow up completely.
But don’t piss a Capricorn off. Have you ever seen a Capricorn explode in anger? They, in most cases, will ignore you and do things that may seem rude to you. They don’t easily get mad unless you push them emotionally. When their anger can’t be controlled behind the hard exterior, the Capricorns will outburst, shout, and cause such a scene that may shock you.
Often, they can bring up all the bad things in the relationship every time they have heated arguments. They are frank and can even bring up nasty things about you and may not be aware of how hurtful you can be. Rather than saying they are angry at you, they will declare that you have disappointed them badly. They may try to disengage themselves to prevent getting provoked even more. At the end of the story, they may decide not to be with you anymore.
8. And don’t betray them. They have a hard time forgiving.
Capricorns have good memories, both for those who have helped them and those who have harmed them. Being honorable by nature, most will repay a debt or a good deed with something equivalent or better, and some will repay a bad deed with revenge. Getting a Capricorn to forgive you is not easy – each time they feel angry is a different story and you need time to understand the whole situation.
The Goat is all about trust, so when you hurt them or break their faith, you could lose them forever. If they get mad at you, that means they care deeply about you. It’s a big deal once the Capricorns are truly hurt by someone they really love and respect – it might lead to depression, isolation, and a loss of trust with that person. They won’t ever let themselves forget as they don’t want to be hurt again.
9. Prepare yourself for mood swings.
Capricorns are great at entertainment but all the fun comes at a cost. If you want to enjoy your Capricorn company, you should be prepared to bear their mood swings. When friendly, they will be one of the ‘most charming’ beings and the funniest of all. But when in a black mood, they can kill with their sarcasm and slay with their anger. They’ll appear as if they’re out of nowhere, but it is probably best if you steer clear of trying to mend the situation altogether.
Capricorns can go from sweet and loving to being irritated with the way you breathe at the drop of a hat. It is best to not fight it and just let it pass. It can be very difficult to be around them since you never know when they can turn their anger towards you. They are also famous to ruin the best of things around them by acting stupid at times.
10. They’re A Little Too Critical.
Capricorns tend to be very hard on themselves. As high achievers, Capricorns understand and bask in the satisfaction of a job well done. As a result, Capricorns tend to hold themselves and others to very high standards; never failing to call a person out if they fall short of those standards.
Yet when it comes to sex and relationships, the Capricorn penchant for excellence can come off as fussy and hypercritical if the only feedback they offer their lover is about everything they feel their mate is doing wrong. They are often overly critical of others. They expect others to live by their rules. They have a very high opinion of themselves, so they often look down on others. This might put pressure on their love partners.
11. They are real freaks in bed.
The Goat is a randy beast, so despite their self-consciousness, they have deep-seated desires that somehow just keep thrusting up to the surface. Capricorns really is a lady/guy in the streets and a freak in the sheets.
They may look serious, but they aren’t afraid to take sex to a whole other level. They are playful and adventurous. You’d never expect this since they’re so well composed on their exterior. They definitely like to try new things. Never doubt a Capricorn’s creativity in the bedroom. Capricorns are one of the most promiscuous signs out there and they definitely have the creativity and libido to get away with it.
They tend to let go in the bedroom and drop their cutthroat determination. And while earth signs might be considered the most boring signs of the zodiac, if you’re lucky enough to have hot sex with a Capricorn, the pleasure is all yours.
12. Keeping them interested may be a struggle.
When pursuing a Capricorn you need to really commit because it’s about to be a process and a half to get them, keep them, and then make it stick. They have short attention spans and will literally come in and out of people’s lives at their will and without a word. They’re not trying to ghost anyone or be an asshole, they just aren’t going to let their lives stop for even a moment to wait for anyone else to catch up.
They have a wanderer, free-spirited, lustful for life thing about them that they really can’t deny; so it controls their life and consequently any love life that they might find as well. It’s exactly what makes them so worth having in your life. It will keep the relationship from growing stale, boring, and mundane if you’re both working toward keeping each other interested; preserving the spark, the flare, the fire.
Find some common ground and hope they latch on and stay intrigued in you just long enough to really make it stick.
