15 Things To Know Before Dating A Capricorn


Your possible future love shares a sign with characters like Betty White, Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama, Ricky Martin, Carlos Castaneda, and Jim Carrey… I’d say you must be on the right track because that sounds like a pretty bada$$ combination of people to me.

However, you have to be pretty damn sure of your feelings before attempting to date a Capricorn and be sure to tread lightly, otherwise you’re just wasting your time and can lose their interest before you ever really had it.

They might play tough love at times and be annoyingly stubborn, but they will probably look so damn cute doing it that you can’t even be mad. While it can be one of the most frustrating and unpredictable, it’s one of the most fulfilling relationships you’ll likely come across. A sign governed by Saturn is no easy one to love, but I promise you, it’ll be worth every minute of it…

15. They’re not easily impressed

They’re not looking for a CEO or some almost-famous celebrity to sweep them off their feet. That’s too obvious, too easy, and far too cliché and cheesy. It’s definitely not money or status that gets them feeling some type of way. Your Capricorn heart throb won’t even be slightly phased by flowers and romance either, because flowers – well, they die – and romance is too mushy for their style. You’ll have to think outside the box to win them over.

They’re intuned and intelligent enough to notice the subtle things. It doesn’t need to be some huge production to get their attention, that will actually just push them further and further away. They don’t want desperation. They want genuine. A genuine person, genuinely interested in them to an extent, and willing to make a genuine attempt is really all they ask. Not overly romantic, not an obnoxious attempt at attention, not something that undermines their worth, and you should be on the right track to winning them over.

14. They’re Total Closet Romantics

Despite their ‘steer clear’ attitude toward passion, romance, and mushy-gushy grossness, they are actually totally melting inside at every cute gesture their partner might make and romantic notion that may cross their mind. They absolutely love the idea of that perfect little love story with the prince charming, the kiss, the flowers, wedding, the lovey-dovey, happily ever after fairytale. But that’s just it; they love the idea of it. It’ll really take someone special for the love of the idea of that fairytale story to even slightly turn into a possible reality in their minds.

They might not outwardly show how much of a mush-ball they really are, but just know that when your Capricorn love makes it clear that they’re ready to jump into a relationship with you, take that for what it’s worth and know that they’re head-over-heels and probably lowkey picturing your cute little romantic future together.

13. They are overly cautious with their hearts

Capricorns have an in-depth screening process before allowing anyone into their world. They remain forever wary of who they allow to see them for who they really are passed the face that they put on for the world every day. They’re not fake by any means, they’re just crazy guarded and extremely careful about how much of themselves they show at once.

If you actually manage to lock one in, they will come up with every possible worst case scenario and all the ways that you might screw up, they’ll get mad, and then forgive you all before really letting you in. It’s their way of processing the illogical nature of love, quite honestly. Promise, it’s not a bad thing, though. If you make it passed all of their barriers by just being yourself then you truly have nothing to really worry about. They’re loyal to the end and picky enough to make you know that you really must be something special.

12. As careful as they are, they just want to feel special

In spite of the ridiculously cautious ways of Capricorns, at the end of the day, they just want to cuddle up and feel like they’re your everything while you watch Netflix – and chill. They’re secretly looking for the love of their life at every turn and clinging onto their happily ever after that has yet to come.

While they might have seemingly unreasonably high standards for a potential partner, it’s really quite simple to make them feel like one in a million. A little genuine love and care; the way your eyes sparkle when you look their way; and the flutter in their stomach when your lips gently kiss theirs… that’s really all it takes to melt their heart and make them feel like your one and only.

All anyone wants in life is to be loved and feel special. Even passed the edgy exterior of your Capricorn bae all they want is that too. (Just don’t break their hearts or they will have you by the throat).

11. However, the stubbornness and independence fights back

To drive an already slightly unstable sign even closer to the edge, they have this burning sense of “do everything on their own” and “I don’t need you” that fights against their desire to fall into feelings. There’s something about the way they’re wired that tells them that to catch feelings means to lose any and all independence they once had.

It’s not the most logical sentiment ever, but doing anything that requires allowing someone else to even remotely take care of them is beyond painful for your Capricorn love. Not to mention, you will literally never win a fight ever again. The closest you might get is them getting frustrated, stop listening, and then telling you that you’re right (even though you and they both know that they clearly don’t think you are). It’s a lot more fun than it sounds like a promise. Even their most annoying traits such as stubbornness and independence are mixed with a flirty adorableness that you just can’t be mad at.

10. Eventually they will… but at first, they’re slow to fall in love

When you do finally begin to win them over, it will be slow goin’. On top of being too careful with their hearts and fighting the urge to feel and rely on someone, Capricorns will take their damn time just because… what’s the hurry? They live in the moment and figure everything happens for a reason, so there’s no reason they should rush into finding the love of their lives right here, right now.

You will probably fall and admit your love for them far before they even admit their love for you to themselves. They will literally wait until it is so incredibly undeniable that they just have to finally admit that they are head over heels in love with you.

As long as you’re just a little patient with them and don’t try to rush them into admitting anything, then it has the potential to be the most passionate and rewarding relationship you’ve ever been in.

9. They’re cynical in the most positive way

They want to be optimistic but don’t quite hit the mark. You think it’s difficult for Capricorns to fall in love? Well get ready for the ride of your life, because it’s even more difficult for them to allow themselves to stay in love. As much as they love, love and want to believe in the fact that happily ever after love really does exist, they’re terrified of the odds of reality. In their minds, no one ever really works out and if they do, it’s probably a fluke anyway. By the peak of their relationship, they’re probably struggling with trying to decide if they should just jump ship now since it probably won’t get better than it is right now or if they should ride it out and see if this is the one that actually lasts.

As far as they’re concerned, you will screw up eventually or for whatever reason, the relationship will crumble to the ground. But as soon as this happens, a whole new adventure begins and they can start to move on.

8. They’re not overly passionate

Once you finally win over your impossible but charming Capricorn crush, don’t take it personally if there’s not fireworks the first time you sleep together; it absolutely doesn’t mean that it’ll be the last time. They absolutely love physical intimacy but expect more tangled sheets and sweaty bodies than throbbing hearts and loving kisses by the time it’s all said and done. Their passion is something to be worked up to over the courting and seducing process, it’s not a kind of intimacy that comes naturally to them in most cases.

Their passion will come on as spontaneously as anything and probably give you a bit of whiplash when the mood suddenly strikes them and they’re kissing down the length of your neck as they’re unbuttoning your pants. Their passion comes in the form of playfully teasing to no end until they’re just as turned on as they’ve been trying to make you.

7. Prepare yourself for mood swings

It will appear as if they’re out of nowhere, but it is probably best if you steer clear of trying to mend the situation all together. Capricorns can go from sweet and loving to being irritated with the way you breathe at the drop of a hat. It is best to not fight it and just let it pass.

They have strong personalities, opinions, and voices when it comes to basically any and everything. While they won’t be entirely irrational, it’s probably much easier, in the long run, to learn how to playfully tease them back down to sanity.

Just like everyone, they have their highs and lows; theirs just might come and go much quicker than the average person’s. You honestly may not even notice the change in them because it’s such a natural transition of just who they are as a person that you really might not even question it.

6. They won’t always admit their feelings at first

You can be intimately dating a Capricorn for two weeks or two years before they will willingly and regularly admit their feelings for you. Just like the intimacy and passion, it’s just not something that comes naturally to them. It will take the right person, at the right time to really break open that Cap into telling you exactly just how they feel about you.

It’s just the way they are. The mushy gushy feelings really just don’t process the same way with them. It actually makes them slightly nauseous. It doesn’t mean that they don’t feel them. It just means that they have absolutely no clue how the hell to express them. The more you open up to them, though, the more likely they’ll be to open up to you in return. Just know, that they express their feelings in ways other than through words. Every side glance, gentle kiss on the lips and brush of their fingertips on your bare palm is their way of telling you exactly how much they care about you.

5. Keeping them interested may be a struggle

When pursuing a Capricorn you need to really commit because it’s about to be a process and a half to get them, keep them, and then make it stick. They have short attention spans and will literally come in and out of people’s lives at their will and without a word. They’re not trying to ghost anyone or be an asshole, they just aren’t going to let their lives stop for even a moment to wait for anyone else to catch up. They have a wanderer, free-spirited, lustful for life thing about them that they really can’t deny; so it controls their life and consequently any love life that they might find as well.

It can be a good thing, though! It’s exactly what makes them so worth having in your life. It will keep the relationship from growing stale, boring, and mundane if you’re both working toward keeping each other interested; preserving the spark, the flare, the fire. Find some common ground and hope they latch on and stay intrigued in you just long enough to really make it stick.

4. Never Doubt Their Creativity in the Bedroom

Just like Scorpios, Capricorns are one of the most promiscuous signs out there and they definitely have the creativity and libido to get away with it. It can be as simple as a candlelit room, a freshly made bed with the love of their life laying across it just waiting for them to crawl in with them and allow the passion to overwhelm them. Or it can be as complex as swings, blindfolds, and whips waiting for them to use to their pleasure with their favorite hookup strapped in and covered in edible lotion.

They honestly just want to do it and they want to do it now, then, and again and again and again. This is where they really thrive. They love to explore and test their boundaries especially when another person is involved. So tie up those laces and strap on that blindfold because you’re in for one hell of a ride.

3. They’re Really Not Into the Mind Games

They are drama free and honestly just don’t like wasting their time with overthinking how long is the appropriate time to wait before texting you back (even though they read your message an hour ago) or some bullsh*t like that. That alone should make you start picking out china patterns and a wedding date like right now.

With a down to Earth and chill AF by nature Capricorn, you can pretty much ensure that, at the very least, they won’t be wasting your time (or theirs) trying to screw with your head. Their time, brain power, and attention span is far too precious to waste on someone they know there’s no potential anything with. Unless you’re about to be the love of their life or the best lay they’ve ever had, then there’s a good chance they just won’t mess with you and let you down nice and easy before continuing on their merry way. They’ll be straight up with you from beginning to end because that’s just the simplest thing for everyone, right?

2. You’ll Always Be Welcome in Their Social Circle

Capricorns have excellent taste in people and awesome people are just naturally drawn to them. There are a-holes in every social group, obviously, but generally, you’ll be warmly welcomed by every single one of their acquaintances. They only surround themselves with the best of energies and work solely on the vibes of those around them to truly thrive.

They have a great appreciation for remarkable people, whether it’s an artist living in a tiny room in Brooklyn just trying to make their way or an accomplished business man succeeding on Wall Street, they notice those that others might look passed and see something truly beautiful and awe-inspiring in everyone. They’re attracted to something about the energies that people radiate more so than the obvious characteristics or lack-thereof that they portray on the outside. Good news, you might just gain an amazing partner and an even more amazing social circle (whether you really want it or not).

1. They Keep Themselves Level-Headed and Down-to-Earth

They are just as chill as a popsicle and radiate a contagious energy that everyone around them is susceptible to. Chances are, there’s nowhere you couldn’t go with them and no one that you couldn’t meet. They’re the best for spontaneity, adventure, and every day shenanigans.

They are one of those signs that you can pretty much always count on having a good time with them because their good time could mean anything from a candle-lit dinner on a yacht (probably not) or a simple mac and cheese picnic on the living room floor in a blanket fort.

They’re generally down for just about anything and everything but they find amazement in the little things, beauty in the mundane, and happiness in the simplest of moments. They’re a risk worth taking and a partner that will never make you feel less than amazing each and every day that you’re together.
