Capricorns are one of the rare signs that can be with almost any sign as long as they put in work and keep an open mind. However, some signs are easier to develop and maintain a relationship with for Capricorn men.
About the Capricorn Star Sign
Capricorns are very serious. They are extremely driven to achieve things in their life. However, they are also willing to stay at a reasonable station in life if it is the ‘right’ thing to do for their family, especially if they are parents.
Of all the Earth signs, Capricorn is the most uptight. They have very clear views on what they need to do in their life. They are not afraid to make sacrifices and they often put their desires on the back burner to take care of their obligations.
Dating as a Capricorn can be frustrating. Some signs are just not as serious as Capricorns. Furthermore, this sign gets their feelings hurt frequently by fire signs and flighty air signs.
If you are born during this unique star sign, knowing the best matches for you can make looking for love a lot easier and it can save you from experiencing unnecessary heartache.
Capricorn Men in Love
Capricorn men often fall for women that are not compatible with them. They find many of the qualities they lack attractive, which leads them to seek out women who are unlike them. However, this almost always leads to heartbreak for the gentle Capricorn man.
Generally, he takes a while to fall for someone. He is often the victim of unrequited love. He may fall in love with a childhood friend or even someone at work. However, he is awkward at times when it comes to expressing himself.
He might be close to a woman for years and one day surprise her with a love letter. Usually, when he does this, she loves him dearly as a friend but has never considered him as a lover. He can’t help himself though.
Once he gets it in his head that this is the one for him, he will hold onto the idea of being with her for years. Even if he does not speak to her for an extended period he will pop back into her life and make another attempt.
Due to the strong feelings that Capricorn men develop, they should seek a partner with whom they are most compatible. Otherwise, they might suffer years of heartache.
Famous Capricorn Men and Their Partners
Often it helps to consider some of the most celebrity couples when you are trying to figure out how signs work together. So, here are some of the partners of famous Capricorn men:
- John Legend – Christy Teigen (Sagittarius)
- Dax Shepard – Kristen Bell (Cancer)
- Elvis Presley – Priscilla Presley (Gemini)
Air Signs and Capricorn
Air signs are one of the most difficult matches for Capricorn men. However, if you are a Capricorn, you have probably fallen in love with an air sign before. These signs seem to capture the attention of the goat.
Perhaps it is that people born under these signs are so different from Capricorn that they are exciting to him. If he is friends with a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius he might easily fall for them. However, things might not go well.
Each of these zodiac star signs can drive a Capricorn man crazy in good and bad ways. Furthermore, the air signs find it difficult to take Capricorn men seriously. They are opposites.
However, if Capricorn and his air sign companion can learn to work together and respect each other, they can develop a great relationship. It takes a lot of work though. These matches are better in terms of friendships than romantic relationships, despite the goat’s strong attraction Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra partners.
Most people know how Elvis Presley was smitten with his wife Priscilla. However, she eventually left him because he didn’t allow her to spread her wings and grow into her person. He had the very specific traits most Capricorns are known for in relationships and after some time, she just could not handle living under his strict rules anymore.
However, their love for each other was long-lasting even after their relationship ended. The relationship between Elvis and Priscilla is a perfect example of how wrong a relationship can go for a Capricorn man, especially with the wrong partner.
Best Air Sign Match for a Capricorn Man
Of all of the air signs, Libra and Capricorn are the best together. Libra is very sensitive just like Capricorn. They are mild-mannered and very balanced, too. These two both have respect for the law. They are good at balancing their home and work life.
At first, this relationship might not seem to go well. Libra needs to feel a strong connection from the beginning. They like to talk a lot and need to have a deep connection before they become intimate. However, if these two can make it past the beginning of the relationship or even if they start as friends, they can develop a strong bond with one another.
These signs share so many similarities that they can develop a deep respect for each other. Capricorn will ground airy Libra. And, Libra can help Capricorn explore the lighter side of life without bringing them too far out of their comfort zone.
Fire Signs and Capricorn
Fire sign matches are difficult for Capricorn. While Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo might fascinate a Capricorn man, these people are bold and they easily overpower the calm Capricorn. All three also love to be out in social settings frequently. Eventually, that will annoy Capricorn who loves to be at home.
The goat might fall for a fiery partner, but it will almost always end badly. He will get burned, and the damage might be long-lasting. Just imagine what fire can do to the earth if it is left unchecked. A large fire can wipe out entire areas quickly and the earth-fire match can do the same.
The fire sign is much bolder than Capricorn. So, he will be the one to be affected most significantly by the turmoil.
Best Fire Sign Match for a Capricorn Man
If a Capricorn man was to take a fire sign lover, the best one for him would be Sagittarius. Of the fire signs, a Sagittarius woman is the least likely to hurt him. If they can develop a mutual understanding, these two might be able to make their relationship work. However, it will take a significant effort.
You can look at the relationship between John Legend and Christy Teigen as an example of the match between a Capricorn man and a Sagittarius woman. These two are a power couple that truly seems to love each other. They work together to help others and they appear to have a happy home life.
Water Signs and Capricorn
Water signs are a better match for Capricorn. Unlike the harsh fire signs and flighty air signs, water star sign people have more grace and they have a more subtle way. Capricorn will have the ability to be himself with a kind water sign. Plus, he can help one of these partners be more grounded and they can help to make soften his ways.
Sparks will not fly with a water sign, but that is not the way of Capricorn anyway. He usually takes things slowly and is more likely to fall in love with someone he has known for a long time in a friendship or professional relationship first.
Cancer and Scorpio are a challenge for Capricorn as both of these signs are harsh in certain situations. Cancer and Capricorn both enjoy spending a lot of time at home. However, it is difficult for these two signs to develop a relationship because they are both so reserved.
Scorpio has a very strong will and she likes to have a good time going out with friends and doing things without giving them a ton of thought. Capricorn gets nervous in the presence of a Scorpio partner and she lacks respect for him.
Best Water Sign Match for a Capricorn Man
Pisces and Capricorn make a good match in a romantic relationship. They can both help to bring out parts in each other that they need to work on. Pisces is playful. However, they need to be constantly kept on course.
A Capricorn man can keep Pisces focused. Together, these two can achieve great things. Capricorn will help his Pisces mate put action behind her dreams.
Furthermore, these two signs are both very gentle and sensitive. They both get their feelings hurt easily. So, they can put themselves in the other’s shoes.
In the beginning, these two will get along well. However, over time, Capricorn might get tired of Pisces’ constant need to go places. Also, Capricorn finds it a lot easier to focus on a goal. Pisces always wants to get their way immediately. They spend money they shouldn’t spend and they enjoy constant entertainment.
If a Capricorn man can help his Pisces lover develop her ideas and stay on track, these two might make a decent couple. However, Pisces might mess things up with their manipulative ways, because a Capricorn man is likely to see through it.
Earth Signs and Capricorn
Of all the elements in the zodiac, Capricorn matches best with those who are earth signs like him. Perhaps this is because he is such a quirky personality that he needs someone who truly understands him.
The other signs often find him boring. He does not offer the excitement of enjoying frequent travel, excessive adventure, uncontrolled spending, and other things that excite many women.
An earth sign partner just understands a Capricorn man a bit more. So, although signs that are like him might not be as attractive to him. In the long run, he will have more success in love if he looks for a similar partner.
Taurus and Capricorn might have the most trouble in the long run. Although they both have similar life goals, Taurus will step all over Capricorn and leave him battered. In an argument, Taurus will tear sensitive Capricorn apart.
Virgo is a much softer earth sign. However, Capricorn is more goal-driven than Virgo and that can cause a lot of issues in their relationship. When Virgo becomes lazy and complacent, a Capricorn man will lose respect for his partner and the two might get into heated arguments.
Best Earth Sign Match for a Capricorn Man
Surprisingly, the best earth sign match for a Capricorn is another Capricorn. These two are the only ones who understand each other completely. The interesting thing is they might not attract each other because like the other signs in the zodiac, they find each other boring in ways.
At least, that can be the case at first. After some time, when each has an opportunity to open up, they will find that they are a lot more fun than they realized. Both will understand when the other wants to stay home or has to work.
They will also be excellent parents as both will put each other and their family before anything else. If they go through tough times they will never last long because both Capricorns are resourceful and determined to improve their situation in life.
Final Thoughts on the Best Match for a Capricorn Man
Capricorn is one of the most down to earth signs in the zodiac, so they have a lot to offer any partner. A Capricorn genuinely has what it takes to be a suitable match for any one sign. However, both partners have to be willing to work with each other.
Being successful in love takes a bit of luck for a Capricorn man. He has to catch the woman of his dreams at the right time. He should also try to be as flexible as possible. He might find that challenging, but he will reap the benefits if he allows someone to help him have more fun in life.
However, if he does not want to change, he should settle down with a fellow Capricorn. That way he knows he and his partner share a deep level of understanding.
