Capricorn- December 22-January 19

The Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac represented by the Goat. Capricorn sign is part of the earth element so men born under this zodiac sign tend to be grounded and stable by nature. If you're looking for the life of the party type of guy, know this is not the one. Capricorn has a quiet confidence about him that can sometimes come off as almost snobby or elite. That is not usually the case. Capricorn man is just one of those guys who knows what he wants and is okay with people being privy to that fact as well. Want to know more? Let's explore the depths of the Capricorn soul..

Capricorn is the sort of guy who is always in his head. He's definitely a thinker, but at the same time he's practical and knows not to fly in the clouds too high. He has dreams and goals he wants to achieve in his life, but in a meticulously planned way that only he can do. He pays a lot of attention to detail and doesn't like to leave anything to chance, every little part of the plan is important to him. Capricorn gets the reputation of being the workaholic of the zodiac which is very true to his nature. Work and career comes first in the life of most Capricorns. If they're not satisfied in their job, their love life will take a backseat until they figure things out. Capricorn men are very ambitious when it comes to their career and will work long hours and do whatever it takes to get ahead. That is very important to remember if you are planning to date a Capricorn man. He is the type to work long days and sometimes even weekends to satisfy that urge of being successful. You will have to be very patient with him and let him make the time for you.

That's the thing about Capricorn men. They like women who are independent and confident. A Capricorn man will usually take a long time before he makes a move on a woman. He has to think about it first and determine if she's a risk worth taking. He's not really the one night stand type of guy unless that is all he is looking for at the moment. Capricorn men tend to favor stable and committed relationships. That's why they take so long to put a label or define the relationship. They want to make sure they're making the right decision about you, which is going to take some time on their part. This is where you have to show patience and restraint and not rush the Capricorn man before he is ready. This will be a major turn off for him and might even push him away for good. Take things slow and see where it leads you. The Capricorn man is smart and he'll know whether you are a good match for him or not. Once he fully decides about you, know that things will only be getting better from here.

Once a Capricorn man has made up his mind about you, you are usually in for a long term and stable relationship. Capricorn man is not one to cheat. In fact, his only mistress may be his work. If you're okay with the fact that he's spending late nights at the office and possibly even his days off, you should be fine. Capricorn men like stability in every aspect of their lives so cheating or having affairs is really not part of their nature because it throws off the balance of everything. Plus since Capricorn man took so long to decide about you, what would be the point in throwing all that away and starting from scratch again? Capricorn man would see no logic to that wayward type of thinking.

Capricorn men are famous for their work ethic and their poker face. No one knows what they're really thinking because they're so good at masking their emotions. That's not to say that Capricorn men don't have them, because deep, deep, down they totally do. Most people just don't take the time to really discover them. This is why the Capricorn man will never be the type to openly display affection in public. Sure he might hold your hand every now and again, but he won't be the type to kiss you in the rain or make out with you openly in a restaurant; that's just not his style. He is discreet and private in his relationships and prefers to show you how he really feels about you behind closed doors. Capricorn man might not be full of charm and wit, but he definitely knows what he's doing. You won't be disappointed when he really does tell you or show you how he feels about you. He is the type to buy you a meaningful gift or take you on a trip rather than write lovey-dovey poetry or give you a thousand roses. For Capricorn men, it's not about how he does it, but rather what he does that matters. He's not really a grand gesture type of guy, but whatever he does, he'll make sure it's meaningful and will touch your heart.

The negative traits of a Capricorn man are that he can be stubborn and set in his ways. He has enough life experience to know how he likes things done and there's no changing his mind. You might have to compromise on certain beliefs if you want to get close to a Capricorn man. Or just agree to disagree and move on to a new topic. This old goat will not give in to anyone. Try not to get in heated discussions on topics like religion or politics because Capricorn will be sure to have very strong beliefs and opinions. Try to steer your discussions on more mellow topics that will not cause the goat to get heated. While Capricorn is generally even tempered and steady in the head, you might get a rise out of him if the wrong things are said. It's better to avoid those goat horns at all cost.


Capricorn man is the type of guy you settle down and marry, not the one to have a one night stand or fling with and then forget. He is the stereotypical man who will be a provider and protector. He may not be the most fun or out of the box, but he is serious and responsible and will always may sure the bills are paid on time and there is more than enough money in the bank. What you will have with a Capricorn man is stability and security, and while that may not always sound like the best time ever, it is practical. Capricorn man is the grown up of the zodiac and likes to have his ducks in a row so to speak. If you're looking for a simple life of balance without over the top romance, Capricorn might be the guy for you. Capricorn is the "safe" guy you marry after you've had enough of all the bad boys and their drama. While Capricorn man may not be the G.O.A.T (greatest of all time) he makes the best of what he's got.
