The Capricorn man is a serious and sober package, underneath which lurks a surprisingly sexy alpha male. He dresses conservatively, is quiet and dignified, and gives every impression of belonging to the corporate world. Typically quite stockily built, he dislikes being the center of attention and prefers to play a supporting role during social outings. For the Capricorn man, compatibility is a long, slow dance rather than a quick rush to the finish line.
In love, the typical Capricorn man is very persistent and tenacious. If he really likes you, he won’t give up until you agree to a date. He’ll turn up on time and meticulously dressed, and he will treat you to a traditional meal, for which, of course, he will pay. He’s every inch a traditionalist, but dig a little deeper and you will find a delightfully quirky wit and a self-deprecating charm which is very attractive. You’ll also find a sensual heart. Capricorn is an earth sign, after all, and for a Capricorn man, compatibility absolutely includes sensuality.
Although he may come across as rather formal and aloof when you first meet, the Capricorn man will warm up considerably as you get to know him. When he feels safe enough to let his guard down, he will show himself to be surprisingly sensitive, and a very good listener. Every sincere, once the Capricorn man tells you he loves you, you know he really, really means it. Capricorn man compatibility works best with a sensual, easy going woman who will take the time to let his true nature unfold.
Once in love, the Capricorn man will want to make a firm commitment. He expects to get married, and he will be utterly faithful once he does. Needless to say, he expects absolute fidelity from a partner too, so Capricorn man compatibility flounders with the more flirtatious signs. He takes his duty to his family very seriously, and will be an outstandingly good provider. In return he asks only for love, and that he be taken seriously – he really cannot stand being laughed at.
The Capricorn man is a good father, if slightly stern, and is a very loyal partner. He will support your own dreams just as much as he constantly strives for his own. He expects his marriage to go places, financially, and will always seek to better your joint lot. Sometimes, however, he can be a little too serious. The best Capricorn man compatibility can be with a woman who knows how to make him laugh, and who can inject some spontaneity into his routines.
Because he is so loyal and devoted, the Capricorn man does not react at all well to betrayal. He will have no hesitation in ending such a relationship, and may be quite cruel in how he does so, because of how deeply hurt he will be. When the relationship is going well, however, the Capricorn man is a trustworthy and practical partner, offering a loving base for any woman. Capricorn man compatibility does take time to warm up into its true potential, but this faithful and endearing man is a good catch, worth waiting for.
