Hang tight, and we’ll talk about this topic fully so that you will know exactly what to do to get your Capricorn man to behave!


How to Make a Capricorn Apologize (15 Clever Ways)

1. Don’t laugh at him

Capricorn men tend to be very serious, so he won’t appreciate it if you make fun of his words, behavior, or ideas. If he’s trying to make up for what he’s done, the best thing you can do is to listen and care about what he has to say. If you are upset, this isn’t the easiest thing to do, but you need to be calm and patient. 

Don’t be sarcastic or rude, especially if he’s trying to make up for his poor behavior or something like that. Make sure your Capricorn man knows you care about and love him, so he’ll be more willing to open up and share his feelings and express his emotions. You want him to feel comfortable around you, so he will want to apologize for what he’s done.

2. Keep it real

Don’t explode at him, even if you are super angry with him. I understand being mad over something and carrying a grudge because it’s too hard to let something go. However, you need to ensure that you don’t act childish with your Capricorn man. He needs to know that you are serious about this issue and need a sincere apology. 

One important thing you should do is keep your Capricorn man calm. The last thing you want is for him to get angry with uncontrollable rage. You don’t want him lashing out at you or doing anything like that when you’ve got a relationship you’re trying to keep. If you want to keep things on an even playing field, be real with him. No games allowed.

3. Explain your side of things

If you two are fighting, the best thing you can do is to explain your side. A Capricorn man wants to stay in a long-term relationship; he’s committed and loyal to the woman on his arm, so he will want to work things out. Tell him what you believe is going on and how you think the two of you can remedy the situation. 

4. Listen to him

It’s important to listen when your Capricorn man is talking. Don’t interrupt him or make him feel as though what he has to say isn’t important. Instead, show open body language while he talks. This means uncrossing your arms and not rolling your eyes - even if you are super red because of rage!

According to one source, there are three As that come with proper listening. They are attitude, attention, and adjustment. Make sure when you hear your Capricorn man out that you are implementing those things. Show a positive attitude by keeping an open mind when your Capricorn is trying to explain his side of things.

Most people do have a short attention span, but paying close attention to the details is a crucial part of listening to your man. To improve your listening skills and attention span, there are games you can play, and meditation might help. Find a way to be interested in what your Capricorn man is saying, even if it’s super boring and uneventful. 

To demonstrate the final A, you need to adjust your attitude and attention span if needed. You also can adjust the conversation based on what your Capricorn man is saying. If he’s shifted into a negative mode and doesn’t want to apologize for what he’s done, you may need to adjust your strategy to help him get back on the positive side.

5. Explain why you think he’s wrong

Capricorn men can get confused easily and often just don’t understand what’s going on. They aren’t stupid or anything like that; they just tend to see the big picture so much that they forget about all the details that make up the little things that are so important in life. If you’re very upset about something, let your guy know why.

You don’t need to play passive-aggressive games with him; to be honest, a Capricorn man may not get it if you try to trick him. What I’m saying is playing any mind games may not work with a Capricorn man. You are better off being straight and honest. Just explain why you need an apology from him to help him understand your pain.

6. Bring him back to earth

As just mentioned, Capricorns can often see the big picture very well, but the smaller details in life escape them. They have very high expectations of their partners, so you may have to bring them back to reality. Just explain what’s going on if you think his head is in the clouds.

7. Apologize for your part

apologize for your part

You need to take responsibility for your part in the tiff. Don’t be so proud that you can’t apologize when you know you’ve done something wrong. It’s important that you do your part in a relationship. If he doesn’t accept your apology (Capricorn men can be very stubborn), you may want to consider ending things with this guy. He’s not being fair.

8. Explain any misunderstandings

If the whole thing was a big misunderstanding, you could just tell him that. Capricorns are reasonable and will listen to what you have to say. They really do want to make their relationships work, so there’s a good chance he will hear you out if you try to explain that the whole thing was one big misunderstanding.

9. Ask him if he loves you

This little trick often works on guys. You need to ask them this, not always because you actually think they don’t love you but because you want them to think about how you are feeling. If he thinks that you believe he doesn't love you, he is more likely to say he’s sorry for his part in your big ordeal.

10. Get him to open up

You want to get him talking about his side of things so that the two of you can make up. Who wants to be arguing for days or even weeks? One way to get him to talk is to talk a lot about yourself and to ask questions. Make sure you ask open-ended questions rather than yes or no questions. That way, he'll be more likely to share what's going on in his head.

11. Explain how you feel

It's okay to open up and show your feelings. In fact, if you're able to cry, I would suggest crying because crying often makes a man feel guilty, and he’ll want to apologize quickly to make sure you are no longer hurting

A Capricorn man does not want to see his woman in pain. He's a loving creature and looks forward to seeing the smile on his woman's face. For this reason, he will want to apologize for what he's done wrong so that things will be right between the two of you. There's a good chance he'll apologize if he thinks it will make you feel better.

12. Ask him if he likes to see you hurt

This is another dirty little trick that sometimes works with men. Again, you probably don't really believe that he wants to see you in pain, but asking him if he enjoys seeing you hurt will let him know that you are in pain. This will help him come to the realization that he's done something wrong and needs to make up for it.

Say something like, “Do you enjoy seeing me hurt like this?” He’ll probably say no, which will allow you to ask, “Then, why did you do that?” You can tailor this message to your particular situation, but you see my point. It’s good to find out why he did something that caused you pain. It will help you see how serious you are about this.

Wondering about your man? Let's find out who he really is.
From the newly dating to the happily married, trust issues can creep up on anyone. With cheating cases soaring over 40% in the last two decades, it's natural to have your doubts.

Could he be sending flirty texts to another woman? Or secretly swiping on Tinder? Or even have a hidden criminal past? Or, the worst fear - could he be cheating?

This useful tool can bring the truth to light. It'll dig out hidden social media accounts, dating profiles, photos, any legal run-ins, and more. Let us help clear your mind.

13. Tell him you need an apology

Often, if you let a guy know you need an apology in order to get over something, it will help him understand exactly what he needs to do to make things right with you. Sometimes, you just have to be straight up with a guy and tell him the truth. I know this from experience because many of my exes needed clear communication.

If you play the passive-aggressive role too much, you may end up having a confused boyfriend who doesn't know how to make you happy. If you know exactly what you need from him in order to be happy, which in this case is an apology, then you should just tell him what it is. There’s a good chance that he will appreciate your honesty.

If you explain exactly what he did wrong and let him know that you need to hear an apology from him in order for things to be right between the two of you, there's a good chance that he will graciously apologize so that you guys can make up. After all, no one enjoys staying in a tiff for a long period of time. 

14. Show your emotions

show your emotions

For men are deeply emotional creatures, so there's a good chance that they will want to open up if you probe them a little bit. These guys want to share their feelings with you, but they may not know how. In order to get them to open up, you may have to be so your feelings a little bit too. Don’t be afraid to open up and show emotions

15. Ask him if he wants to break up

Again, you may not really believe that he wants to break up with you but letting him know that a breakup is a possibility for your future will let him know that something is wrong in your love life. He may not even know that you were considering breaking up over the thing he did, so this could be a reality check for him, which is great!

It’s good to let him know that he shouldn’t take you for granted. Show him that it’s possible for you to walk away from him if he doesn’t straighten this out. You may not be serious about leaving him, but there are times when letting him know that you could possibly do that will be good for him to hear. 

I wouldn’t threaten divorce if you are in a marriage, but if you are dating someone, it might be smart to show him that there are certain things you just won’t put up with. For example, if he’s cheating on you, that is something that you shouldn’t have to tolerate, so I would let him know if he continues this behavior, you will leave him.
