Dating A Capricorn Man: 9 Things You Should Know

Capricorn men are ambitious and driven, intelligent, and highly logical. When it comes to dating them, that means that there are a bunch of pros but also a few cons to look out for. Here are nine things you should know about dating this charismatic and impressive earth sign.

Don’t feel threatened by his job.

When you’re dating someone who works a lot, it’s easy to feel like their job is more important than you. One of the top things to understand about Capricorn men, though, is that they tend to be workaholics. Their career ambitions are usually very important to them, so it can feel like that’s all they care about at times. Try not to feel threatened by the attention he puts towards his job because it’s not a reflection of his lack of interest in you—it’s just what feels natural to him. He’s not one for stopping his life every time he starts dating someone new and forgetting about his other goals to concentrate on his blooming relationship. The more he gets to know you, the more important you’ll become.

He craves a routine.

An earth sign, Capricorn often feels the most comfortable when following a routine. He prefers to know what’s going to happen and, possibly, stay in control. When it comes to dating, this isn’t the best sign to surprise or take on spontaneous dates. The chances are he prefers seeing you at the same time every week and developing relationship habits with you.

He thinks things through logically.

Capricorn is a logical thinker. Although he can be hot-headed at times, he’s not driven by emotions the way other signs are (looking at you, water signs). He looks at both sides of any given situation and follows rational thinking processes until he comes to a decision. Sometimes, his lack of emotion can make him seem cold. But again, don’t take it personally. That’s just how his brain works.

Pessimism comes naturally to him.

People tend to be attracted to positivity and others who lift us up instead of bringing us down. Unfortunately, Capricorn often sees things through a more pessimistic lens than a positive one. He’s not the best at being open-minded or believing in things unless he’s got the proof in front of him. This can be difficult when you’re a positive person trying to date a Capricorn, as it might feel like his negative opinions are weighing you down. But if you’re too optimistic and get your hopes up too often, they also might bring balance to you.

You’ll only get the chance to break his heart once.

Everyone knows that Capricorn isn’t the most forgiving sign. If you’re going to break his heart, you’ll only get the chance to do it once. Once you hurt him, whether intentionally or unintentionally, he tends to shut you out.

He can be bossy.

As a logical thinker, Capricorn men don’t always understand how they come across or how their words make people feel. His strong personality can make him bossy. This, combined with his tendency to not understand how he comes across can mean that he sometimes say hurtful things. Don’t be afraid to call him out when he’s too bossy or domineering.

He’s not afraid of hard work.

One of the best Capricorn traits is that he’s not afraid of hard work. When you need him to pull his weight, rest assured that he’ll be there ready to help. He doesn’t shy away from effort and he doesn’t have a lazy bone in his body. If things get tough in your relationship, most Capricorn men will be willing to do the work necessary to solve the issues, rather than pretending they don’t exist and letting them build up.

He can be condescending.

Unfortunately, Capricorn men can be condescending at times. They are often intelligent and ambitious, which means they are often successful in the workplace. This means that they can walk the walk, but sometimes the talk can be annoying. Again, if the Capricorn guy you’re dating ever talks down to you, don’t be afraid to let him know how he’s making you feel. Set boundaries from the beginning so he knows that belittling you is not okay.

Don’t make fun of him.

Despite being logical rather than emotional, Capricorn men can also be notoriously sensitive. He’s not the best at taking a joke, so it’s not a good idea to make fun of him, even in a playful way. If you are the type who likes to make jokes, wait until you really get to know him and feel comfortable playing with him. Remember that this sign does tend to take himself very seriously and may interpret a harmless joke as a serious dig.
