Is your Capricorn crush acting strangely around you?

Is he blowing hot and cold?

Would you like to know whether he’s losing interest or if he’s just testing you?

If so, you’ll be pleased to know that there are reliable ways of finding this out. Capricorns tend to test their lovers in specific ways and I have listed these below. 

On top of that, I have listed the most common personal characteristics of a male Capricorn, so you know what to expect when dating one. 

However, before we get into that, I have a story that all women in the early stages of a budding relationship would surely love to hear. 

In my long history of learning about male psychology, I recently discovered a powerful primal trigger that exists in most male brains. 

It’s most commonly known as the ‘Hero’s Instinct’

This trigger has an unbelievable impact on a man’s feelings towards the woman who knows how to activate it. 

That’s because it releases all the emotions that men are typically looking for within a relationship. You can learn more about this in my personal account of how I discovered the power of the ‘Hero’s Instinct’.

This skill helped me to attract and keep a higher class of man. My dating life has levelled up immeasurably ever since I learned this skill. 

It is my #1 recommendation for winning the ‘mind games’ that inevitably happen during the courtship phase of relationships.

With that said, scroll down to discover my most important tips for dating a Capricorn.


How Does A Capricorn Man Test A Woman?

When we meet someone new, we go through about three stages before becoming completely committed or engaged with that person. It takes a lot for the ordinary person to feel like he can fully commit to his/her partner. 

The first stage is the initial meeting or attraction which is based solely on physical attraction and certain presumed or easily-noticeable qualities. 

The next stage is the curiosity, interest, or infatuation stage. It’s easy to get to know each other at this point before moving on to the third stage of enlightenment. In the third stage, couples can determine if they are in a serious relationship or a casual/temporary affair. 

Here, we tend to ask questions about our partners and perhaps, test them from time-to-time to gauge their reactions to certain situations. This is where a Capricorn man is usually most active. We have already explained that we all have the propensity to test; however, Capricorn guys are notorious for their testing techniques in relationships. 

This earth sign has a tough exterior and doesn’t like to be out-smarted, they need to know that the other party is as invested in the relationship as they are. So how do you know when this zodiac sign is trying to play smart with you? Keep reading to find out.

7 Ways A Capricorn Man Might Test You

1. No Sign That He Wants To Be More Than Friends

At first, a Capricorn man may not return the signals you may be sending out in terms of relationship interests. You may think perhaps, that he does not understand them, or you are not being explicit enough, but best-believe that he does. He sees that you are interested, and may very well be attracted to you, but a Capricorn does not rush into love

He wants to make sure no-one ever string him along or plays him, so he doesn’t mind waiting things out. As we know, time reveals all things. This is also another way of testing your emotional forbearance. 

2. He Is Not Always Available For You

Capricorns are natural workaholics, and so may not always be there physically when you need him. He will test your ability to handle these situations in the way you express your desire to see him, and the manner in which you balance your love life with your work life. 

Although Capricorns are care-takers, they are fiercely independent. They also need someone that feels the same way about life to be compatible with them.

3. He Takes Long Periods Of Time Before Deciding

This goes a long way into determining how patient you are. In one way, it could even test your irritability. Capricorns tend to take their time before deciding on things they really care about and do not like to feel rushed. He might test you with little things, or if the opportunity arises even greater challenges. 

For example, he’ll watch how you react in a situation where he has to make an important family decision, and takes days- or even weeks to decide exactly what to do. Once Capricorns do decide that they will go in a particular direction though, they will pursue it with everything that they have. So, patience is a key feature to have here.

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.

4. Works A Lot At The Office

As we have mentioned severally already, Capricorns are workaholics and they gladly use this one fact to test the women they date. They need to ensure that their partner understands their need to work and achieve things both as a career person or entrepreneur and as a family man. The zodiac signs they consider fit to date are the ones that will not be a hindrance to them achieving their long term goals.

5. Testing Your Independence

Capricorns will often find creative and subtle methods to find out how independent you are as a person. Are you able to make important decisions without always needing to consult them? Do you think for yourself? Are you emotionally, financially, and mentally self-sufficient? These are all things that this zodiac sign will be itching to know before committing to a relationship.

6. He Might Test How Stressful You Are

Nobody likes to feel stressed, especially not the Capricorns. If he feels like you require too much energy to handle, he will not want to take the plunge with you. These men feel easily stressed in relationships and want to see a light-headed, yet reliable partner in you. 

7. Vulnerability

Capricorn men tend to be quite vulnerable once committed in relationships, and they are aware of this. Vulnerability comes with being able to tell you deep-seated things about their life without the fear of being judged or exposed. However, before you get to this stage with a Capricorn man, he will often test you with smaller secrets or vulnerabilities. 

He will watch to see if you bring them up regularly in conversation, or use it as a tool to attack or defend during conversations. A Capricorn man does not share to be used but to be understood. And so, he wants to know ahead of time, which you will do if given the chance. 


How does a Capricorn man test a woman?

A Capricorn man might test a woman by not showing any signs of being interested in having a relationship with you. He might also take long, seemingly unreasonable hours to make decisions that affect him or may do some of the other things listed above. 

What does a Capricorn man find attractive in a woman?

Above all, a Capricorn man admires a woman that he can trust and be vulnerable with. He also wants a woman that can be patient with his driven and independent nature. A Capricorn man needs a woman that has her own thing going and does not need him at every waking moment.

How do you know if a Capricorn loves you?

The most reliable way to know if a Capricorn man loves you is his ability to share personal things with you. A Capricorn man falling in love with you is directly correlated to the degree to which he opens up to you. 

A Capricorn man in love will be vulnerable, and won’t be afraid to show you his messy and more private side. Personality-wise, they like women who are friendly, polite and do not come across as cheap, lazy, or overly-aggressive.

Do Capricorns easily fall in love?

Quite the opposite. Capricorns are known for taking their time before falling in love, they love to assess their partners before fully committing to a relationship with anyone. Mostly because of the amount of trust it takes on their side. Also, once a Capricorn man is fully committed, he goes all into being your care-taker and provider in every way. He does not like to get these kinds of decisions wrong.

How do you know when a Capricorn man is not interested?

He generally will not open up to you and will keep his distance. If you notice a Capricorn man growing ever-distant from you, this may be a sign that you may have ‘failed’ the test along the way, and he might not see a future with you. Other means to know he is not interested to include:

He treats you as a friend
He pays no attention to your presence.
He finds subtle means to say “I do not love you”.
He hardly makes conversation with you.

In Conclusion

We hope you enjoyed the list and will use it to know when a Capricorn man is testing you. Remember, Capricorns do not trust easily, so do not get offended when it seems like he is overly testing you. The vulnerable Capricorn is just trying to protect his heart because once he falls in love, he is an open, care-taker.
