Is there a special Capricorn in your life who you’re hoping to win over?

Is it proving a struggle to capture his heart? 

This is actually pretty normal for this sign. Often, you have to be patient. This guide is here to help you.

It reveals some effective ideas for winning the affection of a Capricorn man, plus the actions he’s likely to take to show he likes you. Some of them are quite subtle!

First though, I would like to tell a personal story that could prove to be very useful in your quest for true love. 

I spent the majority of my young adult life pondering over the best ways to make someone mine. I’d always be obsessing over the minor details of their behavior.

However, I’d still always be the girl who couldn’t keep hold of her partners. They’d always get bored and leave - and I had no idea why!

Thankfully, that all changed when I started reading up on the nuances of male psychology and discovered a little-known primal trigger called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’

This mental tick has such a profound impact on the way men feel about women.

Once you learn how this part of the male mind works, you can make a man feel so fulfilled when he’s around you. Over time, he naturally becomes a lot closer to you emotionally. 

I know this for a fact, as I tried it myself. To learn more about how discovering the ‘Hero’s Instinct’ transformed my love life, you can read my personal account about how it works.

I’ve used this skill to strengthen existing relationships and win over new prospects. I’m sure it can help you do the same.   

Still, if you prefer to read my Capricorn-specific advice, scroll down.

Ways A Capricorn Man Shows Love To You

What can I say about Capricorn man? If you are looking for a dependable, loyal, hard-working guy with a whip-sharp sense of humor, then he is your man. 

But for some reason, Capricorn men get a bad rap. Capricorns are depicted as dull and boring, they are seen as cold and aloof. God forbid if anything gets in the way of their ambition. 

Capricorn men are shy and intensely private when it comes to their emotions.

You need to understand Capricorn's ruling planet of Saturn to get a picture of this intriguing Zodiac sign. 

Saturn is the ‘Old Father Time’ of the Cosmos. Saturn rules discipline, duty, loyalty, and sacrifice. Saturn governs conformity and tradition. It is restrictive and limiting

But Saturn also rewards hard work and perseverance. The importance of Saturn in Capricorn cannot be underestimated. Capricorns play by the rules, learn life lessons, and use these experiences to build on their maturity

Now you might think that does sound incredibly dull and boring, but wait, this is as far from the truth as you can be. 

What Are Capricorns Like?

Capricorns are the old, wise souls of the Cosmos, and yes, Saturn has burdened them with the responsibility of being the grown-ups of the universe. But the universe always balances out in the end. So in a delightful twist, Capricorns actually grow younger as they get older. 

Capricorns are wickedly mischievous in their older years. Having worked hard all their lives, now they are older they want to have fun and relax. 

So that is a glimpse into Capricorn man. Now let us look at all the ways Capricorn man shows he loves you.

27 Ways A Capricorn Man Shows His Love

1. He Will Not Flirt With You

One thing to remember about Capricorn man is that he does not flirt. He has not got the time. Plus he sees flirting as a kind of mind game. Capricorn man is down-to-earth, he does not live in his head as Aquarius does. 

2. He Will Start By Asking A Lot Of Questions About You

When a Capricorn man is in love he will show a genuine interest in what you do, your passions, your family life, etc. He may subtly enquire about your financial status by asking you where you live or what position you hold in the company you work for. 

This is not him being snobby, it is him probing. He is always thinking about security and your future relationship. If you are in love with a Capricorn man do not be put off with this line of questioning. 

3. He Will Start To Tease You

A typical Capricorn man in love will make jokes at your expense. Remember when the boy at school pulled your pigtails, you ran home crying but your parents smiled wisely? If you find your Capricorn man is starting to gently rib you it is a sign he loves you. 

4. He Will Become ‘Mr. Dependable’

When a Capricorn man wants to express his love, he will become the person you can rely on. Your Capricorn man might offer to fix things around the house or take a look at the noise your car has been making. 

Earth signs get their worth from feeling valued. With Saturn watching over him, Capricorn man feels this sense of duty more than Taurus or Virgo.

5. He Gets Involved In Your Emotional Wellbeing

A Capricorn man in love will become uber-proactive. Usually, they are not interested in showing a sensitive side. But when they are in love, and in a relationship, they want to help. 

He will support you through emotional problems. You will find that he is the one you call in an emergency situation. 

6. He Will Pursue You

he will pursue you

When a Capricorn man wants something, whether this is a promotion, a new car, or a new love, he goes all out to achieve it. This is true of a relationship as well. 

This may sound cold and calculated, but you have to understand that Capricorn is methodical and goal-orientated. Think of the goat, climbing an impossibly treacherous mountain path. Getting to the top takes determination, focus, and courage. 

7. He Reveals His Bitchy Side In Front Of You

Capricorns have the driest sense of humor in the Zodiac. Their sarcasm knows no bounds and takes no prisoners. 

If Capricorn lets his sarcastic bitchy humor out when you are around it means he is comfortable being himself around you. It is how a Capricorn man likes to express his love in a relationship.

8. Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Capricorn is an Earth sign and as such, pays attention to actions more than words. Air signs such as Aquarius and Gemini will woo potential partners with their quick wit and charming banter. 

As a result, a Capricorn man in love will not waste time with words. You will not get heartfelt poetry or declarations of undying love from this man. He will, however, show you his love and affection with something concrete.

9. He Will Not Rush In

As with all decisions, if the subject matters to him, he will want to take his time. Capricorn man does not do casual affairs or one-night stands. He is honest and open about wanting to commit to a long-term relationship.

10. He Will Spend A Long Time Observing You From Afar

Capricorn man likes to spend a long time observing, getting to know you, and finding out about your family and friends before he makes his move. 

By the way, he will not rush you either. This man is a traditionalist. He wants to tick every box before he commits. After all, he knows this relationship is for life, he is in no rush. 

11. But He Might Start Bossing You Around

One strange way a Capricorn man will express his love is to boss you around. The Cardinal sign in him cannot help it. Capricorns are born leaders who like to be in control. It is natural for them to take charge but not because they are fastidious or fussy. When a Capricorn man falls in love he has your best interests at heart. 

12. He Starts To Organize Your Life

Capricorns are old souls do not forget. They feel as if they have lived several lives before. These wise old goats have been around the spiritual block a few times. Being responsible and organized is in their blood. So pay attention if they start to organize your life. 

13. He Will Initiate Contact

Capricorn is a Cardinal sign. Cardinals are the leaders of the Zodiac. Cardinals get the ball rolling, they kick things off, and so they are the initiators. Capricorn might take things slowly in the beginning, but if a Capricorn man likes you, he will make sure he is the one to call or text. 

14. He Takes Charge Of Your Finances

One of the signs a Capricorn man loves you is when he offers to sort out your finances. If Aquarius wanted to show love, he would whisk you away for a mysterious trip. Taurus would treat you to a slap-up meal in a fancy restaurant. Scorpios might buy you some sexy lingerie. 

But Capricorns want you to be secure in the future. Actually, Capricorns think everyone should be financially secure, but they only help those they love and are in a relationship to achieve this security. 

15. He Takes Time Off Work To Date You

The reason Capricorn guys have such a reputation for being boring and no fun to be around is because they work hard. 

You may recall the fable of the Ant and the Grasshopper from your childhood. The story tells how a lazy grasshopper makes fun of the ant working all summer storing food away for the winter. 

But as winter falls, the food is all gone, and the grasshopper is starving. Meanwhile, the ant, who had toiled all summer, is well-fed. 

This is Capricorn in a nutshell. So you can bet it is one of the signs a Capricorn man is in love when he takes a day off work.

16. He Tells You About His Ambitions And Goals

To a Capricorn male, there is nothing more important than achieving his goals. For the goat, he will make sure that he gets to the top of that mountain. It is no coincidence that the word GOAT stands for – Greatest Of All Time. 

Sharing his ambitions and dreams is another matter altogether. These are his private thoughts, his aspirations, and his most secret desires. Only a Capricorn man in love will divulge his ambitions. 

17. He Introduces You To His Boss

You will notice I have put the introduction to his boss before an introduction to a Capricorn man’s family. Capricorn will eventually take you to see mom and pop, but first, he wants you to get to know his boss.

After all, if you are going to be his significant love, he will expect you to fit in smoothly with the boss and her husband. 

18. He Wants To Meet Your Family And Friends

Capricorns do not waste time on people they have no use for. I know that sounds cold and mean. It is not meant to. Capricorns are one of the most loyal, caring, and responsible people in the Zodiac. As such, they prefer to expend all their energy on the people they love. 

One of the ways you can tell a Capricorn man is in love is that he includes your family and friends into his inner circle. Now they are his responsibility too. Capricorns do not have casual acquaintances. You are either in their life or you are not. 

19. He Becomes The Perfect Gentleman

Tradition and old-style values lie at the core of every Capricorn male. However, this does not mean that Capricorn males are chivalrous to every woman they meet. Capricorns believe in mutual respect. If you do not earn it, you will not receive it, especially from a star sign like Cappy who has such high standards. 

When a Capricorn man wants to express his love he will treat you like a lady. He will hold open doors, pull back chairs in restaurants for you, he will give you his coat to keep you warm when it is cold.

20. He Wants To Show You Off To Family And Friends

Capricorns never introduce a casual fling to their family or friends. Actually, scrap that. Capricorns do not have casual flings in the first place. When Capricorn brings home a partner and introduces them to their parents, it is a serious relationship. No two questions about it. 

You would not have managed to step through the door if he had not already considered your significant love potential. He is getting to know you, now all he needs is approval from his inner circle. 

21. He Shares Deep And Meaningful Opinions With You

Earth signs are doers, not talkers, but Capricorn can be an exception to the rule, and I will tell you why. Capricorn’s ruling planet Saturn governs wisdom, lessons learned through time and discipline.

In other words, Saturn is the planet that has been there and done it all before. This gives Capricorn a sense of knowing what is right and wrong. As a result, Capricorns have strong opinions, and they want to voice them

22. He Listens To Your Point Of View

Because Capricorn is an Earth sign, it is hard for them to budge from an idea once they have formulated it. By debating and discussing these issues, a Capricorn man is allowing you to test his intellect. Not everyone gets to see this vulnerable side of him. 

23. He Gets Jealous Around You

When a Capricorn man is in love he may express his love through jealous behavior. Your Capricorn man may show his sensitive side now you are in a long-term relationship. If your Capricorn guy is a confident person with high self-esteem, he might show his love by acting a little possessive around you. 

24. He Becomes A Little Controlling

However, if he does not think he is good enough for you, he might start to try and control you. He may comment on what you are wearing or who you are talking to. He may keep a check on what time you come home from work. Constant texting when you are out with your girlfriends is another sign of control. 

25. He Gets Very Protective Of You

A Capricorn man in love can act like a caveman protecting his woman when he is in a relationship. His masculine instincts kick in, and he relishes going back to old-style gender roles. 

Do not be mistaken, this does not mean he expects you to do all the housework and stay at home, looking after the kids. Of all the Zodiac signs, Capricorn is looking for his equal in a partner. But this is how a Capricorn man shows his love, by becoming protective over you. 

26. Sex Becomes More Than Lovemaking

Earth signs are passionate and love to express their feelings through touch. Although Capricorn frowns on PDAs, in private, it is a different matter altogether. 

When Capricorn knows they have met their significant partner for life, they can abandon all their inhibitions. They reach levels of emotion usually only reserved for signs such as Pisces and Scorpio. Their love is grounded in genuine, authentic love. 

27. He Talks About Starting A Family With You

The way a Capricorn man shows he loves you is by asking you to have children with him. This is the ultimate decision for Capricorn because it is a lifetime commitment that he intends to keep.
