6 Things That Kill a Capricorn Man’s Desire for You

So, you have a Capricorn man at your side. Lucky you!! Maybe you have had him for a long time, or maybe it’s brand new. Either way, you’re probably wondering what mistakes you should avoid so he doesn’t lose that desire for you. These 6 qualities will send him running—watch out!

Luxurious walks on the beach, romantic dinners for two,  a new investment account in your name, and long talks about your future empire — these are some of the ways that Capricorn men showcase their desire for you. 

But what happens when the sparks stop flying or you unintentionally do something to turn him off and push him away? As a detached and sometimes hard-to-read Earth sign, Capricorn men can be picky about what they need and desire in a woman. 

That’s why it is helpful and important to tap into astrology — and understand the most common ways to lose the desire of the Capricorn man. 

Based on my years as a relationship astrologer, I’ve put together a list of his top six turn-offs so you can avoid these things and keep the positive love energy flowing.

Instead of distant one-word text and unanswered calls, you get random flowers and elegant jewelry fit for a queen. 

Watch out for these six red flags you don’t want to wave…

6 Things That Kill a Capricorn Man’s Desire for You

1. Inconsistency

Not doing what you said you were going to do is one of the biggest buzzkills for the persistent Capricorn man. His devoted, earthy nature doesn’t understand (or respect) inconsistency. 

To this loyalty-driven man, your word is your bond.  I mean, Capricorn is a sign of authority in public reputation, after all.

It is not even that the Capricorn man isn’t forgiving or aware that everyone makes mistakes. He is! It’s just that for him, reliability is everything. 

He needs to know that you will be there for him the way he is there for you.

2. Being Non-Committal

As one of the Zodiac’s most goal-oriented signs, Capricorn is turned off by the woman who lacks endurance and does not know how to commit in a relationship.

Ruled by discipline-oriented Saturn, the Capricorn man wants to feel safe and secure in his relationship. He does not want to worry about whether you are on the same page or not. 

Good news for you, this conflict can easily be avoided by being straightforward about your intentions from day one. 

If you want a serious relationship with him, make that clear. If you are open to having fun and keeping things light, maybe seeing where your connection can go, then say that. 

Just do not let him assume. He will take your silence as a sign that you are not interested and lose his desire for you. 

3. Dishonesty

Being Dishonest With A Capricorn Man

Lie to a Capricorn man, and those will be the last words you ever say to him. This guy despises a sneaky woman. The mature Cap man needs a woman he can trust. 

This is a man who lives his life based on integrity, honor, and self-respect. So, of course, he has no patience for a hypocritical liar.

Again, loyalty is everything to this grounded and diligent Earth sign. If someone does not like his brutal honesty, he will shamelessly kick them to the curb. 

But if you can be transparent and truthful with him — and show him that you are someone he can share his success and secrets with — then you will have a lover and partner for life. 

In my practice, I have learned that you cannot put a dollar amount on the trust of a committed Capricorn man; there is nothing like it. 

But once you lose it, the relationship is likely tainted forever. 

Even if he forgives you and decides to take you back, he won’t see you the same way. His bruised heart and ego will not let him forget. 

4. Irresponsibility

When it comes to dating these Saturn-ruled men, irresponsibility is a major turn-off, from lack of finances and unclean living spaces to laziness and emotional immaturity. 

Being with a grounded and reliable woman is everything to the practical Capricorn man. 

As a sensible Earth sign, this guy is organized and responsible by nature. He feels at his best when his core responsibilities like lodging, transportation, and business are taken care of. 

If he notices that you are immature and careless, he won’t take the relationship seriously. Anyone who brings instability and chaos to his life is an automatic waste of time. 

5. Clinginess

It’s no secret that the Capricorn man loses his desire when dating a clingy woman — his emotionally detached nature can’t stand it.

As I mentioned, he does look for commitment, but that is different than neediness.

As one of the Zodiac’s most material-focused signs, Capricorn doesn’t have the same emotional sensitivity as, say, moody Cancer, his sister sign.

When he’s in a relationship, he needs space to focus on his work and dreams. He doesn’t have time to sit and talk on the phone all day every day just to reassure you.

To balance him out, the Capricorn man needs an independent and emotionally stable partner. 

That means someone who understands (and respects) that he is a man of professionalism and authority. So, until he’s ready or says otherwise, work and responsibility will always come first.

6. Stubbornness

Out of all the men in the Zodiac, Capricorn is the most dominant except for Scorpio.

In love, these quiet but mighty protectors will move mountains to be a solid foundation of comfort and protection for those they love. 

But behind their fierce loyalty and unconditional devotion lies a control mechanism that can’t be shaken. He needs to be the leader in the relationship — and he won’t tolerate any stubbornness. 

If he feels like you are being disrespectful or ignoring his wishes (or wise advice), then you can forget about your relationship going any further.

  1. Its my first time to date a cappy man, i had no idea at all, one day he is so like planning our wedding and all that, consistent facetime calls and all, even when im taking a shower he doesnt mind being there, til he got a job and so focused, he will call me before working or after, which i dont mind. He is so hot and cold. He asked for time alone, then after 2 days i got a message from him saying ” i still love you and still wanna marry you, i just needed some time alone” i respond and told him that i know and i respect that… what should i do next really?

  2. Stay there,if he says he loves you which you know he means it,else he will never say.
    They do act cold many times,bit their pure true love is worth all waits.
    They believe in genuiune relationship and reevaluate it many times,which is ok.
    Be the way u are and b the same person he loves,u can show your emotional side that you miss him as he wants other person to miss him to assure his love.

  3. mmmmhhhh, problem with cappy, even normal affection and closeness is seen as ‘needy’
    Sorry, not getting in a relationship with a man that barely shows affection, is away for days and disapears from the relationship.
    He’d better go with another avoidant type of person.

    And cappy wanting integrity? I don’t think so! I can get he might distancing for whatever reason, not interested anymore, stress, need for space…. and then disapearing with any notice?!?
    Naaaah! does not work.

    Give at least a heads up, be honest and show respect to others instead of vanishing in the night like a thief!

  4.

    1. Hi C D!

      Ask him if he’d ever think about getting together for more than friendship. You need to know these things if you ever want it to be more than it is. If not then you’ll stay in this friendship and it won’t change. Letting him know your intention or desire will help him put things into perspective for himself as well. You never know if you don’t try! 😉

  5. Currently I am dating a cappy man. We got intimated on our first meeting, he got so connected at our first meeting. 1 yr back we talked related to marriage thing but nvr met. We saw each other profiles on a matrimonial site & talked for few days I guess he was mentally prepared for marrg tht time. This year we agn strted talking planned meeting up nd he liked me so much nd we ended up in bed. Things were going well for few days he used to call me , msg me but these msgs are of “one one word replies” his call duration were of 2-3 minutes. he says he is busy whnever i cll him. i m at work, i m in meeting, with dad, with mom etc. He rarely calls or msgs from his own side. When we meet i genuinely get those vibes he likes me though he dsnt say anything about his feelings at all. i hv already expressed him everything but he read my msgs nd didn’t replied bck. One day he told me abt the msgs i sent that “somethings shldnt be in rush, there is a time” i hv read alot abt cappy man he nvr tlk abt his feelings he will show with his actions only,.Nd in his actions i hv felt tht he hv feelings for me. now why m pissed bcs I always cll him, msgs him nd he nvr clls frm his side. whn he picks up my cll he says in meeting or at wrk will cll u bck but he nvr cll me back. There was a day i waited fr his call bck which he made after 2 days. i sent 2 voice mails to him nd said these things “whenever u say u r busy cnt tlk or meet. I hv always understood ur situation nd said nthng nd nvr complained. U hv time for everyone nd i dnt hv any prob with that too but u dnt hv even a little time for me. Maybe i m nt meant for love but i dnt deserve all this. Even i complained him u clld me after 2 days after saying m busy” said such lines nd sent. he listened to those mails & didn’t replied. I clld him after n hr he said “ i m nt in a mood pls u hv my swear pls fr now i want to b alone” i asked him is tht bcs of me my voice mails on which he said no. I guess he had some fight with his dad tht night. still understanding his situation & mood i sent him a cute & funny video to chnge up his mood. I understood him in every situation& always cared. but since tht day whn i sent thise voice notes he is avoiding me. this is true that these days he is actually very very busy. everyday i clld him i only get one reply i m busy or in a meeting will cll u bck which i dnt get nowdays. What shld i do??? someone help me.. he hv told me abt his nature tht he dnt like texting or calls. he promised me tht we will meet before 12th nov bcs post 12th i hv so much of work lined up nd will be completely busy. but we hvnt met yet

    1. Hi Shiv!

      I hate to say it but when a man doesn’t make time for you, he’s not as into you as you are into him. Capricorn men don’t normally move so fast and since he did, he may have regrets or is unsure which is why he’s gone quiet. You called him out and he reacted with more cold. That should tell you that he’s not into making this work. If he was, he would definitely find time to connect with you sweetheart. You’ve got to decide how long you’ll keep dealing with this OR you need to be blunt and ask him what is going on with the relationship. Be prepared as there is a chance it won’t be what you want to hear. Trust your gut and do what is best for you!
