In love with a Capricorn? Ms T has the inside on what makes this sign unique, how to make him yours and what not to do to drive him away
Inside the Capricorn’s head
The goat is the Capricorn’s symbol for a reason. Known for their stubbornness, these men are quite career-driven and geared towards personal advancement. Due to their growth hungry nature, they end up marrying their professions, and at times ignore the woman in their life.
However, a woman being wooed by the Goat will never have to question the strength of her beau’s feelings, because when a Capricorn man falls in love, he literally puts a megaphone on his heart. The Capricorn man is an alluring charmer whose sparkling sense of humour often makes his female conquests swoon.
This man will smother you with love and passion, making it difficult for other people to keep up. Out of his love zone, a Capricorn man may come across as reserved and uptight.
They are naturally not touchy-feely, but if a Capricorn guy permits you an inch too near, you should know you have him on his knees.
Match made in heaven
Capricorn man — Taurus woman
Once the Taurus woman establishes a rapport with the Capricorn man, they usually form a strong bond. The Taurus woman needs warmth and security, while the Capricorn man usually prefers to build his empire and they both iron out each other’s flaws. The Taurus woman—Capricorn man combination is good for long-term commitment.
DON’T even think about it
Capricorn man — Leo woman
Leo women enjoy their independence and live life to the fullest while Capricorn men are dull in nature. This love match does not show a good compatibility.
Capricorn man — Gemini woman
The Gemini woman feels like she’s being cross-examined when in a relationship with a Capricorn man. Not only does the Gemini woman feel restricted by the Capricorn man’s conventional attitude to life, but she also gets impatient with his plans.
Taming the Capricorn
• Take the high road: If you’re classy and manners come to you naturally, you can have a Capricorn man bowing at your altar in no time. They like expensive things and classy people so make sure you wear your Breitling watch and Tiffany bracelet before you head out with him.
• Show finesse: If you’re a gooey mess steer clear of a Capricorn man because your boat is only going to sink in that sea. They are hard-working machines themselves and hate people who mix emotions with business.
• Be focused: Even if your ultimate goal in life is to knit a sweater, make sure he realises just how passionate and focussed you are on your career.
Don’t get his goat
• Capricorn men are reserved and guarded so make sure you don’t ask too much from him on your first date. If he seems disconcerted and cold don’t lose hope and keep trying to warm up the conversation.
• Patience is key here because even if he likes you and is noticing your attention, he may not acknowledge it.
• He’s a romantic at heart, but don’t ever expect him to encourage public displays of emotion. A Capricorn man thinks PDA is vulgar so don’t expect him to schmooze in public. Never happening, girlfriend!
These celebrities are proof that Capricorn are some of the sexiest guys around.
