For a typical Capricorn man, romance is a serious matter. These men can be rather reserved and cautious when it comes to pursuing a love interest. But when they fall in love the normally "I have my life all planned out," "nose to the grindstone" Capricorn man throws caution to the wind.

Capricorn: The Lover

This is one man who goes after what he wants. It may take him a while to decide who he wants, but once he does, nothing will stand in his way. However, he will plan out his romantic tactics since he's not one to just dive into anything. He finds comfort and stability in being organized and precise in all matters, even those of the heart.

Never All Work

While Capricorn has one of the highest work ethics in the zodiac, he understands that a certain amount of play is necessary to maintain a balanced life. His determination, ambition, and playfulness will aid him when it comes to chasing the person who has captured his heart.

Shy and Introverted

While a Capricorn male might display what could be termed as an aggressive behavior when it comes to career and business, beneath that facade is a shy and introverted guy when it comes to romance and love. Don't misinterpret his shyness as being disinterested. He just doesn't know how to express verbally how he feels without being self-conscious.

Seeking His Mate

Winning His Trust

It'll take a while for a Capricorn man to trust you enough to open up, but once he does, you'll be the luckiest person alive. He'll go out of his way to make you feel loved and needed. A Capricorn man is very faithful and dependable. His soft spot is his family and building a home with you will be of extreme importance to him. He'll spend a lot of time planning and talking about your future together.

Capricorn Man Romance Tactics

Your dates will be meticulously planned and implemented, they will have his personal touch, but they won't be extravagant. A Capricorn man might be too conservative to lavish you with gifts, but he will lavish you with attention.

Understanding Your Capricorn Lover

A Capricorn man likes to be the dominant one in a relationship, but he respects women. He loves women who are smart, sassy, fun, independent, intelligent and speak their mind in a soft, classy, feminine way. A Capricorn man will be offended if you disrespect or embarrass him by correcting or contradicting him in public. But he's perfectly willing to listen to your criticism in private if it's given in a logical and gentle manner.

Dressed for Success

A Capricorn is concerned about the way others perceive him, wants to convey an image of a successful man and will expect you to look your best. When dating a Capricorn man, make sure you've dressed appropriately for the occasion. He'll expect you to know what's socially acceptable. He also appreciates good social etiquette. A Capricorn man is the strong silent type who's not comfortable starting a conversation or engaging in small talk, which means you'll earn extra points if you lead the way and break the ice by asking open-end questions. Being socially polite and conversations will earn his trust and respect, and led him to open up to you.

Attentive and Caring

How does a Capricorn show his affection? He will show his affection through his actions and do little things that convey his affection or sincerity.

A Capricorn man will:

  • Give you advice
  • Be protective
  • Be supportive of your endeavors
  • Do little things that make your life easier
  • Make time for you
  • Be happy, smiling, and playful when you're together
  • Invite you to his home for a romantic dinner

The ultimate sign of a Capricorn's affection and sincerity is when he trusts you enough to open up to you, talk about the future, introduces you to his family, and wants to meet yours.

How to Tell a Capricorn Man You Love Him

Though a Capricorn man may show his love through his actions, if you're in love with a Capricorn man compliment him, touch him affectionately, and when he does something sweet for you kiss him and whisper in his ear "I love you to the moon and back." The more you do this the more loved, wanted and desired he'll feel. Though most men want this, a Capricorn man, in particular, needs words and physical affection to know he's loved.

Keeping the Flames Burning

For the Capricorn man, romance doesn't stop with commitment and marriage. It simply means he'll be more confident in his mates love and have greater opportunities to express his love to the woman who blossomed his romantic instincts.
