The Capricorn Man


He's a tough guy, but he can be shy.  He's a hard worker, but he is pleasant.  He seems like he needs no one, or nothing.  But he does, he really does.  This man is romantic, but his nature holds him back from truly showing his deepest emotions.  He has a wall around him built as tall as the Great Wall of China.  This causes him to have melancholy behavior, practicality, and serious intent.  Sometimes he covers his feelings with his sense of humor.  They tend to have a very dry sense of humor that can come across very shocking at times.  Because of all of the barricades around this man's heart and soul, few people ever really understand the true him.  Inside there is a man who wants so badly to feel free, enjoy compliments, find deep romantic consuming love, and who craves adventure.

These people are tough to really get to know, therefore making them misunderstood often.  You may think is steady earthy exterior means he's boring in bed, or that he has a heart made of stone; but you could not be more wrong.  He has a heart that will keep you warm in the cold, but just don't get too excited when he shares this side with you.  Remember that you cannot change is overall nature.  He may have dreams inside of him that are exciting and carefree, but remember that they are his internal dreams and he's not going to pick up and move to Siberia with you tomorrow.  Just laugh and dream with him feeling special that he shares the light side of himself with you.

He has practical dreams too, those you can definitely depend on.  He is a climber, this man is a hard worker.  He will get to the top of whatever mountain he is climbing.   If you are the girl that is next to him during this climb, be patient.  This man doesn't make his needs visible, which at times can be very frustrating.  Sometimes you will compliment him and he will show absolutely no reaction to your loving words.  Whatever you do, don't stop.  He still needs them just as much as a Leo does.  He just doesn't really know how to react when someone is overly nice, he will either make a joke or ignore it.  That's just them.  Don't let that Goat fool you though, he loves it.  Sometimes you will be able to see it in his eyes, they will light up and give him away.

This man relaxes more and more the older he gets.  He was probably an ugly duckling or a late bloomer in his childhood.  Capricorns have a tenancy to look significantly younger than their true age.  They almost age reversely looking older when they are younger, and younger as they get older.  They also act younger as they age as well.  He gets a lot more fun which is a nice change from most men who become boring in their later years.  Women hit their sexual peak in their 30's, so if you are in your 30's and don't want to date like a cougar go find yourself a Capricorn.

This man loves familiarity.  This man may consider infidelity because of the fact that he ages oppositely, but his practicality brings him back to reality in remembering how much he loves you.  Ties to people he loves are very very strong.  Because his ties to you are so strong he expects yours to be the same with him.  He will want you to be close to his family and defend him with yours.  He never finds a need to ever have your loyalty sway from him.  Many Capricorns, if socially acceptable, would live at home until they married.  They also will never marry until they are settled into a career.  So if you meet a Capricorn man and he lives at home with mom and works at the local piggly wiggly, don't expect a marriage anytime soon.

These men are VERY picky when it comes to choosing his life partner.  They like to climb, as I mentioned before, and will never pick a woman with little to no goals.  He wants to marry up if possible.  He will want her to be a good mother, a decent cook and housekeeper, and then she will also have to be someone he is proud to bring around his work associates as well.  Don't ever worry about this man not being attracted to you if you are his, he would never date someone that didn't appeal to his physical taste.  Attractiveness is very important to them.  He may check a girl out from time to time, but don't you worry, he's not the type to be into skanky women.  He prefers the classier ones. 

As far as fathering children goes, he will be the epitome of what a father really is.  He will always be at the head of the table, and always have a very masculine charge to his children.  Being that this man is a Cardinal Earth sign, he will want to lead his pack.  They are strict and demand respect from their children, but will shower them with huge birthdays and plenty of toys at Christmas.  His dependability and organization will be taught to his children, and hard work will be expected.  He will have a blast with them but will also take parenting very seriously.  These men detest divorce, but once he's gone you won't get a second chance.  When this man has had it, he's had it, so don't push him too far.  You don't want to lose this man.   

Capricorns love routine and will sometimes blow you off to make sure that his trophy collection is polished, his errands are done, or he went to the gym which may seem cold, but this man's routine is important to him.  His physicality is how he expresses love opposed to most men that use poetry or gifts.  When he makes love to you, you will feel loved and it will only get better with his age.  This man is like having your dessert last; the way it should be.  He won't sing you sonnets of your beauty, he won't be passionate with you in public, and he won't praise you with with his deepest emotions every day; but when it's cold outside and all of those other men are trying to keep their love alive with chocolates and roses - he will go outside with just a t-shirt on in below zero weather and chop some wood to build you a fire.  That seems a lot more practical... doesn't it?  After he builds you a fire, he will sit there and look at you as though it was the first day he meet you, even if 30 years has passed, and remember the first time he ever told you he loved you.  That's a Capricorn's kind of love.
