The Capricorn Man - A Dating Guide


     


photoDATING A CAPRICORN MAN - WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW!

Better get serious if you’re dating a Capricorn man! Welcome to the most responsible, the most feet-on-the-ground and the most ambitious of all the Star Signs – the man least likely to give up at the first hurdle, most likely to tough it out to the end, and probably the biggest social climber of the entire Zodiac.

WHAT IS A CAPRICORN MAN LIKE TO DATE?

Does this mean the Capricorn man tends to be a bit overly earnest and hard-nosed? Well yes, if letting your hair down is more important to you than getting on in life, and you’re more of a romantic than a pragmatist, then you may find this man somewhat unexciting. If, on the other hand, you’ve tired of being let down by head-in-the-clouds types, a date with a Capricorn man could be just the answer for you.


Because Capricorn is the CARDINAL EARTH sign, this man’s main focus is on the material side of life, and his approach is strongly pro-active and dynamic. Everything the Goat sets out to do in life has the purpose of helping him to move another rung up the ladder. For a relationship to be meaningful to a Capricorn man, it needs to be more than just a bit of fun – it has to be a means of furthering his ambitions.

Since their Star Sign is ruled by Saturn, the planet of karma, most Capricorn men are aware, at least at a subconscious level, of the workings of the law of cause and effect in their life. Before committing themselves to any course of action, these guys will always weigh up the likely consequences: if they’re going to put in any kind of effort, they need to know it will have a positive concrete outcome.

Once a Capricorn man is convinced of a relationship’s usefulness, he’s generally ready to work long and hard at making a success of it. Famous for their patience, sticking power and long-term dependability, men born under this Star Sign see difficulties and setbacks simply as challenges to be overcome on the path to true love. Just as he himself often improves with age, relationships with a Capricorn man just tend to get better and better over the course of time.




WHAT TO DO ON A DATE WITH A CAPRICORN MAN

Slow and steady is the way to go when you’re dating a Capricorn man, while dignity, tradition and quality are the keywords to bear in mind. Although he's unlikely to turn you down, your Capricorn man will feel uncomfortable, and perhaps also a little disappointed, if you act like you're up for sex on the first date. A Capricorn man likes to work his way slowly towards sexual intimacy, and doesn't want everything handed to him on a plate.

Avoid any kind of behavior that might cause him embarrassment (most Capricorns are quite self-conscious). Meet at established or historical venues with the emphasis on swish and classy as opposed to cheap and cheerful. Dress to impress but go for a classical look, definitely not cheap and trashy. Focus your conversation on your work and your career aspirations. Most importantly, prove you’re someone of sufficient substance and gravitas to live up to a Capricorn man’s high aspirations!

THE PROS AND CONS OF DATING A CAPRICORN MAN

As a date, a Capricorn man's strongest point consists of his total reliability. No nasty surprises when you're dating a Capricorn man - he'll always turn up on time and carry through on his commitments unless there's a very good reason why he can't. Most importantly, he'll be ultra careful always to protect your safety and your reputation. The Capricorn man isn't the type to land you in trouble, nor to kiss and tell! 

On the other hand, his extreme cautiousness might also prove irritating at times. Sometimes you may wish your Capricorn man would be a little less emotionally guarded, or a little more in the mood for fun and games. You might also be less than impressed with his snobbery, especially if he discovers something about you that's not quite good enough to fit in with his ambitious life goals.
