Everything You Need To Know About Dating A Capricorn

So, you found yourself falling for a Capricorn — who could blame you? They're wise and tenacious, and they know what they want and how to get it. Capricorns are extremely goal-oriented and driven, especially when it comes to their careers. They would much rather spend their day working towards that big promotion than at brunch. As a cardinal sign, they're self-starters who waste no time going after what they want. Needless to say, Capricorns are go-getters, which is what often draws people toward them.

Of course, every zodiac sign has its flaws. For Capricorn, many would say they take themselves way too seriously, and ... they're right. Capricorns are very serious and one of the more (if not the most) reserved signs, which can appear standoffish, says Cafe Astrology. However, there's more to this earth sign than meets the eye. If you're interested in being romantically involved with a Capricorn, here's everything you need to know.

Don't expect them to show much emotion

Much like their fellow earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, Capricorns aren't eager to express their emotions. While fire and water signs rely on their heart to get them through an issue, earth signs prefer to use logic and reason, says New York Post. While some might view this as an issue, it's actually an excellent quality to have in a relationship. You won't find yourself in a screaming match with a Capricorn; you're more likely to sit down and have a rational conversation to work through the problem at hand.

When a Capricorn is into you, they'll have no problem showing their adoration (just know PDA is still off the table). They typically won't use their words to express their feelings; instead, they'll perform loving acts to show you they care, such as buying you lavish gifts or taking you out for a moonlit dinner, Republic World states. Be mindful that a Capricorn isn't one to rush into things, especially romantic relationships. They prefer to take their time, so they know you're just as serious about them as they are about you. Remember, if it's one thing a Capricorn hates, it's wasting their time.

They're undoubtedly headstrong

One of the most crucial things to know about dating a Capricorn is they will do whatever they can to prove they're right. As we mentioned earlier, they aren't fighters, but they won't just sit back and not argue their point when they feel threatened. They pride themselves on their knowledge of the world around them, and when that knowledge is challenged, they refuse to appear inept, Your Tango explains. They need you to get on board with what they're saying and won't stop until you have (whether or not you truly believe it).

Don't expect them to be the first to apologize, either. If you want to work things out, you're going to have to come to them. Essentially, it's their way or the highway, so if you can't see yourself dealing with this mentality on a daily basis, we don't suggest getting involved with a Cap. That being said, if you feel this is something you can handle, you might just be the challenge your Capricorn needs.
