Capricorn men can be pretty hard to figure out. They don’t reveal much of their feelings at all… This is a guy who is super reserved and aloof when it comes to his emotions and what he feels for a woman. So, how can you tell if a Capricorn man is secretly in love? What signs should you look out for?
A Capricorn man might be secretly in love with someone, but she will never know because he is just so darn elusive! Nevertheless, deep down, this guy has a dam full of emotions and is just waiting for the right woman to unlock it.
He is actually one of the most wonderful partners you could ever hope for. He takes his relationships extremely seriously and when a Capricorn man commits, he commits for life. Capricorns just aren’t someone who date for the sake of it.
But how to know if a Capricorn ACTUALLY likes you in that romantic way? Or maybe he’s just being kind of nice and friendly, but isn’t really ATTRACTED to you in that romantic sense? There are some very definitive signs a Capricorn man secretly likes you.
Just so you know, it’s OKAY to be a bit confused — Capricorn men usually hide their emotions unless something else is making them (maybe he already has someone or is afraid of being rejected by you since he doesn’t think YOU like him).
Read on to find out telltale signs a Capricorn man likes you more than a friend…
Body Language Of A Capricorn Man In Love
One of the nicest things about a Capricorn man in love is his sensuality. He is an earth sign after all, and earth signs are incredibly sensual and know just how to use touch to make someone feel good.
He is so affectionate and shows his feelings through being physical. A Capricorn man loves touching his woman and making it known to her how much he adores her. However, it does take a while for him to get warmed up to get physically comfortable with someone.
If a Capricorn man is touching you or getting physical with you, then he most definitely likes you. Actually, Capricorn men have one of the most specific love languages of all zodiac signs. I covered his entire Astrology love profile in my Capricorn Man Love Language guide. I suggest you get your copy if you really want to master his love language.
But let’s explore some of the ways a Capricorn man shows his love:
He Gently Places His Hands On The Small Of Your Back
This is, I think, the universal signal for “she’s mine,” and all men out there recognize it. Women, too. This is one of the nicest feelings in the world.
It can be a very comforting sensation when your Capricorn guy comes up and places his hand there on the small of your back, it makes you feel desired and feminine, and protected all at the same time. It’ll probably cause you to get tingles down your spine.
It’s kind of weird when you think about it, how one tiny gesture can create so many feelings and emotions in an instant. You might feel like you belong and are safe around him.
If you are into feeling his hands on you at this point, this is your signal that things can go further if you want it to happen. The ball is in your court now, it’s time to show him how you feel.
He Makes Very Apparent Eye Contact With You
Capricorn men are usually pretty shy and they often will avoid making eye contact with people in an effort to get away without having to engage in meaningless small talk.
On the other hand, when a Capricorn guy wants to get to know you better, or if he’s just mesmerized by your energy, you’ll notice him making intentional eye contact with you more than just once or twice.
So, what do you do when you find a Capricorn guy locking his gaze on you? If you’re into him you’ll definitely want to acknowledge his existence and look him right back in the eyes. Not in an aggressive way, but in a sexy, come-hither kind of way.
Now that you’ve locked eyes with your Capricorn guy, it’s important to notice the way he looks at you. Is he looking at you with desire, is he looking at you with passion burning in his eyes, or is he looking at you tenderly with love and possibly imagining a bright future the two of you could have together?
He Tries To Get Close And Physical With You
Capricorn men are respectful and gentlemanly guys, but they are still guys and, when you get down to it, they are a sensual lot who really enjoy the pleasures of the flesh… preferably your flesh (I didn’t realize until I typed it how creepy that sounds, but you know what I mean).
A Capricorn man will wait to try and take things to the next level until they are relatively sure that you are into it, and until he’s sure that he’s totally into it.
Once this has been ascertained, however, he can be quite the sexual force in the best possible way! It seems rather obvious, but physical intimacy is a huge sign that he’s way into you. It means that he likes you enough to want to get closer to you. Enjoy!
He Holds Your Hand In Public
A Capricorn man is actually quite the fierce protector, and when he is secretly in love, he is definitely going to protect her and show the world that she is his and he will do this with hand-holding.
This is him signaling to the world that you are his and that he doesn’t want anyone to come near you. Not only is this a very sweet gesture towards you, but it will also make you feel wanted and cared for by your Capricorn man.
If you’re into him and he reaches out for your hand, take it. This could be the start of a long and prosperous relationship.
How To Know If A Capricorn Man Secretly Likes You
When you are first getting to know someone, you can never quite tell if they like you or not, and this case is especially true when it comes to a Capricorn man. He is quite shy and coy actually, so he may be playing it cool. He doesn’t want to reveal his hand too soon.
When secretly in love, a Capricorn man does this weird thing that he will kind of pull away or maybe even be a little mean to you, and this is because he is so afraid of getting hurt.
You need to be patient with him and let him warm up to being more vulnerable, but here are some of the signs a Capricorn man secretly likes you.
5 Telltale Signs A Capricorn Man Secretly Likes You
If you’ve been dating a Capricorn man for quite a good period of time and things start to get a little more serious, you may notice that his behavior towards you might change a little. He feels more committed and responsible towards you in some ways.
But if you’re doubting whether or not a Capricorn man likes you, you can take a look at these four signs to see if you notice some of these behaviors:
1. He Is Interested In What You Do
If you find that he’s asking you about your work or what your passions in life are, then he’s trying to get a good feel for you. He won’t typically do this with someone he isn’t interested in.
A Capricorn man will only take the time to get to know someone to whom he is attracted to. Though it doesn’t sound romantic, if he takes an interest in your career, hobbies, or what you do with your life, then he’s into you.
It’s also possible he’ll want to discuss his own career with you as he feels that he can open up and talk to you about what is important to him. His career and work ARE important to him.
In his mind, this defines who you are, what you’re about, and what your work ethics are. He’s a hard worker and wants a partner who is roughly the same as he is when it comes to paving the way to success.
This is an intellectual conversation that he feels comfortable discussing with you. If he’s doing this, you will know that he definitely is interested in you and wants to know more about your life.
2. When A Capricorn Man Compliments You
If a Capricorn man finds ways to compliment your looks or the way you do things, it means he’s interested in you.
He will also be very boyish when trying to find a way to touch you that doesn’t seem too forward. He’ll do things like brush his hand against yours or stand very close to you while you’re out somewhere.
The Capricorn is somewhat shy when he starts to really like a woman. He isn’t always sure what the right course of action is but he’ll be very cute about it. You should be able to tell by how he looks at you as well.
If he blushes or seems embarrassed when talking to you, then he’s crushing on you. But that also means that he doesn’t know how to cope with his feelings. It’s quite adorable when he acts like this. Seeing boyish behavior should give you some tips on what he’s feeling.
3. He Asks You Personal Questions
Capricorn men aren’t the type to go around getting to know everyone on a deeper level unless perhaps he was born right on the Capricorn/Sagittarius cusp. As a general rule though, these guys aren’t super chatty and they prefer to avoid “filler conversation.”
He’s a serious guy and isn’t a fan of small talk. He would rather not say anything at all than have to talk about nonsense. This is why when he is interested in a woman, he will tend to ask her deeper questions to really get to know her.
That said, if you find yourself in the company of a Capricorn man who just can’t seem to get enough of hearing about your childhood and those slightly fuzzy college days you reminisce about now and again, you know he wants to deepen your relationship.
He may not be as open and giving with his own history right off the bat, but in time he will open up and share his hidden side with you. When a Capricorn man asks you personal questions, then it is a very good sign that he enjoys spending time with you and may want to take it further in the future.
4. He Gets Quite Nervous Around You
A Capricorn man is generally as cool as a cucumber. He doesn’t let any outside sources influence the way he feels. He is quite aware of his reputation and understands that his image is everything.
This means he will go out of his way to keep up with appearances and exude a confident demeanor. However, when he is interested in a woman, there might be a side to him that breaks down and becomes a little nervous.
When you notice a Capricorn man gets a little fidgety and is fumbling with his words then you might be able to put two and two together and realize that this man is very much interested in you romantically!
5. He Invests His Time In You
You’re a lucky girl! A Capricorn barely has time for himself, let alone someone else because he is working so hard towards his very lofty ambitions, so when he makes time to spend with you, you can with certainty know he is interested in you.
Remember that this is a man who is building toward his future and he may see real potential for something long-term with you, otherwise, he wouldn’t bother trying to get to know you better. That just isn’t his style!
5 More Signs A Capricorn Man Likes You More Than A Friend
6. When A Capricorn Man Opens Up To You
As with most people, a Capricorn needs to trust and feel comfortable with someone in order to fully open himself up. He’s actually typically very funny. However, he isn’t willing to show that side to just anyone.
When he starts telling you jokes or showing you his lighter side, he’s definitely feeling things for you and could be something strong enough that could lead to a commitment with him.
Showing you his goofy side means that he’s got his guard down and wants to know more about you, wants to share his funny side with you, and just generally feels very comfortable.
Show him your funny side right along with him and you’ll show him that you’re the type of woman he can have a good time with. Don’t ever make fun of him though, he doesn’t like that much. Make fun WITH him, not OF him.
Being able to show you who he is on the inside is a form of intimacy he doesn’t freely give away. Treasure it!
7. When A Capricorn Man Touches You
When a Capricorn man likes you, he’ll find extra ways to brush up against you or have his hand bump into yours. If you work together, he may take up the same schedule or routine as you, or do things that place him in tight spaces where you’ll be.
This still sounds a little weird, I know, but it really isn’t. You can trust that if he is finding reasons to touch you, he definitely has it bad for you. This is a major sign a Capricorn man secretly likes you.
A Capricorn man needs touch to feel an intimate connection with someone. It is of the utmost importance for him, he is touching you because he wants to see how you respond and if you are open to his advances or not.
8. He Wants To Get To Know Your People
If you notice that he asks questions about your family or your friends, then he probably is interested in you. It is an effort to get to know how you are with them and what kind of people they are.
He may ask about getting together with your friends or family in order to meet them and get to know them. Also, he likes to observe how you act with them, as it gives him a glimpse of a side he doesn’t know.
A family is a very intimate matter to him. So, if you find that he’s asking about meeting family members, he’s definitely into you. He wouldn’t waste his time or energy to get to know your family if he didn’t want to be with you.
This is a big sign from the Capricorn man that he’s into being with you more than just as a casual friend or date. Take it for its value and know that he’s looking deeper than you could have imagined.
9. He Will Pay Attention To Details About You
Let’s face it; most guys have the tendency to zone out from time to time, or in some cases, all the time. It’s really no big deal until you run into miscommunications where he’s telling you, “you never told me that,” when in all actuality, you know very well that you did.
This happens in just about every relationship and you learn how to deal with it in your specific situation the more you get to know your guy and how his mind operates.
When a Capricorn guy is into you, there is none of that zoning out, in fact, he will be dialed in to you and what you’ve got to say 100%. This can be nice if you aren’t used to it, and it is a huge signal that he has feelings for you, otherwise he wouldn’t be nearly so attentive and communicative.
That said, be careful what personal stuff you share in the early stages of your relationship because the odds are whatever you say to him now will stay in his memory banks pretty much forever. He notices things that others don’t and unfortunately, a Capricorn man can get turned off pretty quickly if he doesn’t like what he hears.
10. He Gets A Little Flirty
A Capricorn man may have a bit of a dry personality. He isn’t particularly warm and tends to come across as quite aloof, detached, and cold. But this isn’t the case when he has a crush on a woman.
Oh, no! When a lady has his affections, he can become quite flirtatious in fact and this is when you will be able to see his naughty side. He definitely has an edge about him that only comes out when he is really interested in someone.
When he gets flirty you will notice that his mind is actually a little dirty and his jokes may veer on the sexual side. This is fun and will definitely get your heart racing. So, enjoy it because he surely has a thing for you!
5 Clear Signs A Capricorn Man Is Sexually Attracted To You
11. He Will Text You Something Suggestive
A Capricorn man is the furthest thing away from vulgarity, but sometimes when he gets turned on, he is going to let you know and he might do this through a text message. He finds it quite fun to express his naughty side like this.
He wants to see what your boundaries are and how far he can push things. You might not expect it but this guy loves naughty pictures and sexting back and forth if the connection calls for it.
So, if you get a suggestive text from him, you need to realize that he is definitely interested in you sexually.
12. He Fusses Over You
If suddenly you notice your Capricorn guy is doting on you or constantly checking to see if you’re alright, he is into you. This will mean bringing you a blanket if he thinks you’re cold for example.
He may want to cook dinner for you or provide for you in some other way. Any type of “caretaking” from him to you indicates that he definitely likes you and possibly falling in love.
He may not allow you to do things for yourself that you normally would do. Not that he doesn’t want you to do them, he just wants to make life easier for you if he can possibly help it.
It’s in his nature to be a caretaker. Just be sure you don’t take too much advantage of his kindness, as he does prefer a more independent woman than one that is clingy or needy.
He doesn’t do this with just anyone, it has to be with someone he finds really special. This means he is ready to take things to the next level in your relationship. Isn’t that something?
13. He Showers You With Attention
While the Capricorn guy isn’t the most emotionally driven guy, he will absolutely show you lots of attention. It may not be the public type of attention or affection but in private, he’ll always try to show you care.
If he starts holding your hand or caressing you in any way, he’s into you. He doesn’t get physical with just anyone. He’s very picky and has a high moral system in place.
Just watch his behavior and you should be able to pick up on whether he’s into you or just being a gentleman. He’s good at being the good guy most of the time but when it comes to love, he’s extra special.
14. He Goes Out Of His Way To Do Things For You
I mentioned the caretaking aspect of the Capricorn man. If he really likes you, he’ll also start asking if you would like him to pay one of your bills. He may take your car to have it serviced or change the oil.
The Capricorn man wants to take a practical approach to make sure that you don’t have to deal with too many mundane things. He loves that you’re working hard and doing what needs to be done but he also wants things to be a bit more pleasant for you.
The Capricorn guy wants to show you kindness by proving his care for you by doing special things for you. If you start noticing him changing your oil, organizing your bills, or doing something else helpful, he’s probably into you.
There may be errands that you normally run that suddenly he starts running for you. Perhaps you forgot to pick up dinner for yourself so he offers to bring you some. Whatever he does to show his help, is also showing his care.
15. He Lets His Hair Down With You
The private Capricorn man seems to be reserved at times. In fact, there are some people that will say that Capricorn is rather bland or boring. The thing is, if he’s really into you, he wants to show you a good time.
He will do this in his own way which may not agree with others that would do things differently. He will want to take you out for a good meal, suggest taking a weekend trip, or do something that you really enjoy.
This means he’s looking to make YOU happy rather than doing what he truly wants. Ultimately, he wants your happiness so whatever it is you want to do, he’ll seemingly want to give you.
Try it out. Ask him to go do something you really like doing and see what he does. If he agrees and goes with you, he’s into you. If he suggests it on his own, he may be falling in love.

No More Sleepless Nights About Your Capricorn Man…
It can be SO painful to worry about how to make things work with a Capricorn man who won’t commit.
I know. I’ve been there.
I remember crying myself to sleep worried about whether my man would EVER commit to me. And there were a TON of nights when I just couldn’t sleep at all. I lost hours of time from work and doing things I loved…
All because I couldn’t figure out how to capture his heart… How to get him to see what a catch I am… And to finally commit to me.
It made me feel incredibly insecure…
And I’m an extremely confident woman. I’d never had a man not fall for me quickly. EVER.
But… I KNEW how good he was for me, so I didn’t want to give up.
All my friends kept telling me to just move on. They couldn’t see what I saw…
That he was the most INCREDIBLE man I’d ever met.
How could I just give up on that???
And now, looking back, I’m SO grateful that I DIDN’T listen to my friends. He is the most wonderful man I’ve ever met. And now we’re happily married.
But it wasn’t easy. It took a LOT of work.
I had to learn how to speak a different language… his love language <<
And it worked!!
So if you are ready to sleep like a baby… Knowing your Capricorn man is MADLY in love with you… And never feel anxious about him again…
