Capricorn men, born between December 22 and January 19, are down-to-earth and may seem a little stand-offish at first. Once you get to know them, you’ll realize their snobby demeanor is nothing more than an intense desire to do well, reach lofty goals, and have the best life possible.
A Capricorn wants to have his way. This man won’t throw a tantrum or pout. He will simply ignore you or become very cold and silent. If you’re a sensitive type emotionally, you won’t be able to deal with a Capricorn’s moods and constant demands.
Some of these descriptions may make Capricorn men sound callous, and they are certainly not monsters. Capricorn cares deeply about friends, family, and social issues. However, these Saturn-ruled men are very disciplined, and they expect the same from others.
If you’re dating a Capricorn man, or have a crush on one and want to know what to expect in the bedroom, we have the details on how to capture this elusive and passionate lover.
The Capricorn Man’s General Traits
Capricorns are somewhat reticent, but they can be bad boys with an aura of danger and excitement. A Capricorn man is a thinking woman’s rebel. This man will hold an important job, have a great investment portfolio, and make women swoon as he walks past.
These talented, successful men aren’t easily impressed by a pretty face – they need more than a garden variety cutie to pique their interest. A Capricorn man wants a woman who is on his wavelength, who will be a challenge to him. These Saturn-ruled men are shy, and their reserved behavior can be misinterpreted as arrogance.
These men may seem too strait-laced, but they try their best to show emotion once they get to know you. A Capricorn man is only interested in what’s real, and he’s not romantic or spiritual (except in small doses.) This guy will help you with your education, work, or hobbies, but don’t expect roses or jewelry every week.
When a Capricorn man has a sensitive partner, he won’t be comforting, and he can be rather cruel. He won’t try to be charming or gentle. He’s a tough guy, and he wants a tough woman. However, a Capricorn man will help you and invest time to help you with your career or personal pursuits once he knows you well. He can be quite kind once you have proved worthy of his love.
Sexy But Practical
A Capricorn man is very sexual, but he comes off as shy when you first meet him. Once he gets to know you, he’ll lure you into bed every chance he gets. He’s energetic in bed, but not as kinky as many other signs. Even as he gets older, he won’t lose his sex drive. As a matter of fact, he may get friskier as he gets older.
While a Capricorn man loves sex, he needs more than a concubine. You’ll need to be an intelligent conversationalist, excellent cook, and good friend to have a long-term relationship with him. A successful relationship with a Capricorn doesn’t happen by chance – you have to be 100 percent compatible with him or work hard to get there.
Your guy is grounded like Virgo and Taurus, the other earth signs. A Capricorn is a control freak, and he’s pessimistic to boot! This man is a control freak because he doesn’t want things to go wrong, and he doesn’t want to be hurt. Of course, no one wants to be hurt, but Capricorns have a harder time than most signs dealing with emotions when things go wrong.
If you think your Capricorn guy is being too harsh or controlling, let him know. Be clear and concise, and don’t get emotional about it. A Capricorn guy responds to reason, not tantrums.
Money, Luxury and the Capricorn
Capricorns may have money of their own, but they want their partner to have a good job or come from a wealthy family. Financial status is important to them, and if you have a high-powered job or work in a luxury-oriented profession (fashion or interior decorating, for example), he’ll be attracted to you.
Women with lower-echelon jobs may still be attractive to a Capricorn if their work is in a creative field, like art or photography. While a creative field doesn’t necessarily guarantee good finances, a relationship with an artist or writer will give a Capricorn man the social cache he seeks.
The Capricorn man’s love of luxury extends into the bedroom. Wear silky, well-designed lingerie, classic perfume, and cover your bed in silk sheets or ones with a high thread count. Your guy will already have a tastefully decorated bedroom when you first meet him but help him make it even classier once you move in with him.
A Capricorn guy will take time to buy and arrange furniture with a little help from an interior decorator. He only chooses the best-designed pieces and has a taste for minimalist furniture. You won’t find lots of ornate antiques in a Capricorn’s apartment or house unless he’s an older guy.
Starting a Romance with a Capricorn Man
A Capricorn won’t try to gain your love or attention. If you want to appeal to a Capricorn, you’ll have to do all the heavy lifting.
Once you are in a long-term relationship, he will remain faithful to you, even when you have to go away on an extended business trip. Sex for physical release may sometimes be a necessity for him, but he views sex in a relationship as an extension of love.
You’ll find your Capricorn guy loves to give your pleasure, and once he discovers what you like, he will do it every time you make love. Although your guy may be reserved at first, he will be wild in the bedroom as your relationship progresses.
Although Capricorns have a high sex drive, they need a break occasionally. A break gives the workaholic Capricorn more time to make money. When you are in bed with him, your guy will be fine with you taking the lead most of the time. Once you know his likes and dislikes, both of you are sure to have a great time in the bedroom.
A Capricorn man will take you out to dinner at a gourmet restaurant and invite you for a nightcap at his well-appointed home. This homebody would rather spend a night alone with his woman than a party with a group of friends.
Good wine and soft or eclectic music will accompany your conversation with him before you end the evening. If it is your first date, don’t try to out and out seduce him. Be feminine but direct and let him know you desire him.
Ask your guy what he likes in bed and what he doesn’t You may have to try a subtle approach to find out what he likes at first since he is so private in the first stages of a romantic relationship.
What to Do After the First Date
A Capricorn will want an exclusive dating relationship if he’s interested in you after the first date or the first few dates. Your Goat date will want you to show interest in him and not date or flirt with anyone else.
Even though you’re his one and only, he doesn’t want you to show any affection in public. This private guy doesn’t want you to gossip about your relationship to friends or family, either.
Tips for Your Love Life with a Capricorn Man
If you’re going to flirt with or date a Capricorn man and pay attention to him, you should make sure you’re really dedicated to a relationship with him. Alternating between hot and cold won’t just confuse him, it will make him angry, and you may never see him again.
He likes it when you satisfy him, and he’ll return the favor. If he doesn’t perform oral sex on you, that’s a sign he doesn’t consider you a permanent partner. You’re not really that important to him if he wants you to satisfy him, but he won’t do it to you.
A Capricorn man can be easy to anger and moody, but he’s loyal and will take care of those he loves unconditionally. You can’t find a more steadfast and dedicated man than a Capricorn. He will turn his work ethic to taking care of your sexual needs once you have a steady, committed relationship.
Your man works hard, and he often keeps long hours. When he says he’s working – he really is working. This dedicated man makes his fortune through the sweat of his brow and his brainpower. Even if he comes from a well-to-do family, he won’t spend their money, he’ll add to the bounty.
Take It Easy
Don’t rush into anything kinky too soon. Let your lovemaking evolve naturally. When you know your guy better, slowly introduce any fetishes, you may have. Don’t surprise him, though. Discuss your desires with him and listen to his suggestions.
Remember that a Capricorn man is more intent on giving you pleasure organically than introducing lots of fetishes into your lovemaking. Keep it simple, with only a few select kinks now and then. Your body and the physical pleasure he can give you is enough. Buying a whole stockroom of sex toys will probably turn him off and make him wonder if he is enough for you.
Like other earth signs, Capricorn guys like it when their women are slightly submissive in bed. Let him take charge occasionally and tell you what to do. A Capricorn guy will use his bedroom authority to give you pleasure as well as spice up your lovemaking.
Don’t go overboard when dressing up for the bedroom. Stay natural or wear classic lingerie. You don’t need to pretend you’re someone else at bedtime. If a Capricorn loves you, the natural you will be enough for him.
Is a Capricorn Man Right for You?
Free-spirited women like Sagittarius or Aquarius will have a hard time dealing with rigid, unemotional Capricorns. However, if both parties can bend some of their rules, these couples can have a great sex life, and their intellectual capacities jive as well. Jovial Sagittarius isn’t careful with money, and this may be a problem for the financially astute Capricorn.
Other earth signs won’t have a problem with this man’s rules and workaholic tendencies because they share the same traits. Capricorns and Virgos both value safety and financial security, so they’ll make a secure and loving couple, outwardly, this coupling won’t seem exciting to others, but these earth signs don’t care about what others think.
An Aries woman is strong and confident, and a Capricorn man appreciates those qualities. Aries people are more upbeat than Capricorns, and their enthusiasm balances out Capricorn’s pessimism.
Capricorns and Scorpios make an intense combination since they both value money, luxury, and hot sex. In this relationship, the Scorpio will be the take-charge partner since people born under this sign are sometimes unable to put the brakes on their emotions.
The four least compatible signs are Libra, Pisces, Gemini, and Leo. A Leo woman might be too much of a show-off for a Capricorn male, and while their sex life may be great, she can be too bossy in the bedroom and elsewhere for his tastes.
Flighty and emotional Geminis aren’t usually attracted to stodgy Capricorns, and vice versa. These signs are truly opposite in their approach to life. If a Gemini and Capricorn get together, they’ll be many obstacles to overcome.
Pisces and Capricorns can have a good sex life and share intellectual pursuits. However, Pisces women are quite sensitive and will be hurt by Capricorn’s aloof nature. The signs can flirt with each other and have a sexual relationship, but a long-term relationship will be tough to maintain.
Libras have a gentle, easygoing nature, and they may be able to cheer up grumpy Capricorn. Libras tend to vacillate too much and have a hard time coming to a decision about anything. Indecisiveness is off-putting to a Capricorn. These signs will have to work diligently to make a long-term relationship.
