It can be difficult to start a romance with a Capricorn man because these guys don't open up easily. However, the real challenge is hanging on to him once you have him. The following tips will show you how to keep your Cap happy and invested in your relationship.

Three Tips to Keep a Capricorn Man

There are three tips that can help any woman keep a Capricorn man:

  • He needs to feel grounded.
  • He needs to feel supported.
  • He needs to have his space.

Feeling Grounded

A Capricorn man feels happiest when he is in a committed relationship. He always looks towards the future and hopes to have a family one day. So, any woman who wants to keep a Capricorn man in her life should be aware that he is looking at their relationship for the long haul. Loyalty like that of a Capricorn is hard to come by. He also does not like to have his boundaries tested. He is most comfortable in an environment where his partner is someone he can share his life with - not just his body. He is looking for someone who is serious about the future.

Make a Capricorn male feel grounded in the following ways:

  • Show him your serious side and demonstrate how dedicated you can be.
  • Share your life with him and make him feel a part of it.
  • Show him your loyalty to others and to him.

Feeling Supported

Although a Capricorn man may have a somewhat rough exterior and find it difficult to share his emotions, he is still rather insecure on the inside. His strong ego needs to be constantly stroked in order for him to feel as strong as he wants to be. This man is looking for someone to take care of him and for someone who will let him take care of her in return. His insecurity is one of the biggest secrets that a Capricorn man has. He may want to portray a strong image to others, but in a relationship he is just looking for someone who will be there for him. Capricorn's dream relationship is one that allows him to be in a balanced partnership with someone just as strong as he is.

Three ways to make a Capricorn male feel supported:

  • Be the shoulder that he can lean on.
  • Always listen when he shares.
  • Tell him that you are there for him whether he wants you to be or not.

Giving Him Space

As much as a Capricorn man loves being with someone, he still needs time to himself. This man is notorious for pushing his partner away; it rarely has anything to do with the woman in the relationship, but rather with Capricorn's desire to reflect. In relationships he will often pull back so he can evaluate how he feels and where he sees the relationship going. He also has a difficult time opening up to others and will withdraw so that he can feel like he is the strongest person in the relationship. The best thing that a woman can do to keep a Capricorn man who is pulling away is to give him his space.

Give your Capricorn the space he needs by:

  • Letting him 'forget' to call for a while or spending a few days apart so that he can feel comfortable again.
  • Leaving him reminders to let him know you are still there for him and that you are still committed to the relationship.
  • Not pushing too hard or he will feel suffocated.

Characteristics That Attract and Hold Capricorn

Ambition

A Capricorn man is attracted to women who have a future of their own. In fact, if you're already dating a Capricorn man, it's probably because he thinks you're going places in life. Always remember to show him your ambition. If he continues to feel you are going places, he'll be more inclined to see the relationship going places, too.

Culture and Knowledge

Capricorn is also looking for someone that can entertain him. He likes women who can hold a conversation and teach him things he may not know. In order to keep a Capricorn man you have to keep him on his toes. Show him that you have a few surprises up your sleeves and he will always remain intrigued. Nevertheless, do not forget that too many surprises will make him feel unsettled. It's important to keep the surprises balanced with the natural ebb and flow of life.

Face the Challenge

Many women find it difficult to be with a Capricorn man. In order to do so, a woman must balance being supportive with igniting a new spark of light in his life. This balance is often hard for women to achieve. However, it's important to note that the most important thing to a Capricorn is a woman who is not afraid to be herself in the face of changing influences. A woman who is willing to be her own person is perhaps the most attractive woman to a Capricorn man.
