You have no idea how many messages I receive from women asking me to unpack their Capricorn man for them. We get it, these guys are super complicated and a little hard to understand at times.
The thing is, Capricorn men don’t waste time. They have a lot on their plate, and they want to get really far in their life. You have no idea how many ambitions they have! These men need to get to the top, and nothing will stop them.
Even if that means needing to sacrifice love and relationships. They sometimes see romance as a distraction and something that gets in the way of them truly reaching success and accomplishment.
This is why it is quite common for women to feel like they are being ignored by their Capricorn man, even though this isn’t usually his intention. He is more than likely just busy at work and will get back to you later.
But if you feel that your Capricorn guy is giving you the cold shoulder, well what exactly can you do about this? I am so glad you asked! I have quite a few tips and tricks on how to respond when you think a Capricorn man is ignoring you.
If you would like to find out more and implement these secrets, then please continue reading. I would love for you to try out my strategies and see for yourself how well they work!
Capricorn men usually love power. Being in control really gets them off and gets them going. If he is ignoring you, then he likely thinks that he is the one making all the decisions. This gives him an immense amount of power… or so he thinks.
Sometimes it is best to fight fire with fire, and all you can do in this situation is to ignore him right back. He really won’t expect this. When he usually ignores a woman, he is playing hard to get and thinks that this will get her to like him more.
He really enjoys implementing a scarcity mindset into the woman he is dating. He might feel if he makes himself scarce it will get you to yearn for him more and more. And let’s be frank when someone ignores you, you tend to want them more.
This is basic psychology. So instead of becoming super needy, texting him all the time, why not flip the script and go completely quiet yourself? I can guarantee he won’t be expecting this and it will make him go a little stir crazy himself.
This way you are back in control, and you are the one holding the power. Of course, you need to be very strong because I know it can be really painful trying to hold out when you are waiting for a text.
Trust me, you will be really proud of yourself if you are not the one to break the silence first. So, stick it out, and ignore him right back and you will see this man be putty in your hands.
Focus On Yourself And Your Hobbies
I know it is excruciatingly painful when someone you care about ignores you. All you want to do is reach out and fix the problem and figure out what exactly you did or said to have things go wrong.
It is probably your gut reaction to want to contact him and talk about whatever happened between the two of you to cause the silence, but this can often put the nail in the coffin even deeper than before.
Your Capricorn man probably just needs space, and if you keep reaching out to him, he is going to start feeling really smothered and annoyed. The best course of action for you to take is to actually take a step back and purely focus on yourself.
I know it can be really difficult, and he is probably on your mind all of the time. But this is exactly why you need to focus on yourself. You always need to be the number one player in your life, your happiness is up to you, not some guy!
Think about all the things you love to do in your life and then focus on these things. Maybe it’s a sport, or creative activity or spending time with your friends. It doesn’t really matter what it is, as long as you are working on yourself you are probably distracted from thinking about him.
And this is key, the more you sit around moping at home hoping he will reach out, the worse you will feel because your mind is constantly on the situation and that can’t be fun at all. Really work on yourself, and put all the energy you would out into him, into you!
This will have such a wonderful effect on your self-esteem and self-love. What is not to love about someone who puts so much effort into themselves? When he sees you or reaches out again, he’ll definitely be able to notice a difference in who you are, and I bet the ignoring will quickly come to a halt. And you might realize you’re not even that interested in him anymore by this point!
Start A New Fitness Routine
This ties in with the previous point, but you have no idea how effective this is to get your Capricorn man to go crazy. Capricorn guys are ALL about appearances, these guys really care about what others have to think about them.
And this most definitely influences the type of woman he finds attractive. For a Capricorn man, a woman who really takes care of herself by taking care of her diet and working out regularly is pretty important to him
He wants someone who takes a lot of pride in her appearance, and this is why it is such a good idea for you to really focus on your fitness when he ignores you. Number one, you will be distracted because of all the time you’re putting into the gym.
Number two, the feel-good endorphins will really get you going and help you not to get stuck in any yucky emotions that might come up because of him ignoring you, and finally number two he will definitely be blown away by your new and improved physical appearance.
It is good to remember that a Capricorn man really likes it when a woman takes care of herself and isn’t too needy and expectant of him in the relationship. So, looking after your fitness is really one way to combat him showing you the cold shoulder.
Not only will you look good, and feel good, but this will also help you to gain more confidence and help you to deal with the pain of him going quiet. This shows that your world doesn’t revolve around him and that you have hobbies outside of the relationship.

My Final Thoughts On How To Respond When A Capricorn Man Ignores You
I know it is terribly painful when someone you care about chooses to ignore you, but in my opinion, this shows terrible immaturity, unless there is a valid reason for his silence, of course. This is why it is so important for you to focus on yourself and keep yourself happy whenever you are in a relationship.
This isn’t always easy to do because there are so many feelings involved and sometimes our emotions can get the better of us. But I think the best revenge is always to reach your dreams and rise above this kind of behavior.
Fortunately, Capricorn men are quite responsible and reliable and it doesn’t happen often that these guys will revert to ignoring someone. Usually, they are quite upfront and honest about their feelings, even when they aren’t interested anymore.
So instead of getting discouraged when he goes quiet, take this as an opportunity to work on yourself so that his actions don’t affect your emotions too much. It is important to remember that we can’t control how other people treat us, but we do have the power to choose how we will respond in these situations.
Always take the mature approach, and don’t let a man’s actions bring you down. You are worth so much more than that. So, keep your head held high and do the things that make you feel immense joy and satisfaction.

Your friend and Relationship Astrologer,
I am married to a Capricorn man and life is hell with him. He is always ignoring me for one reason or another and when I ask what is the problem, his answer to me is You jus don’t get it, you better start figuring it out. I never find out the reason but the next day he acts as if nothing happened the night before. I go quiet but this is not good for me to keep things inside. There are several time I just feel like getting up ad walking out the door.
I think you should flat out ask him “what am I supposed to figure out? You need to tell me flat out what is wrong and what you want me to do”. His pulling back from you the way he’s doing it is NOT a good sign. I think maybe he’s lost interest or he’s into someone else. Either way you have to speak up so you can get information or closure whatever the case may be. Don’t let this keep festering. Maybe you should end up walking out. Trust your gut, always!
I’ve been dating a Capricorn man for 8 months. He is very demanding. Often times we can go some days without being able to see each other so he will ask me to send a picture of me. Or if I’m going out with friends he will ask me to send him a picture. He wants to see how I’ve dressed up. There have been some occasions where I have not sent him the picture because I’m running late or some other reason. This makes him very upset and he can go cold on me. Why does he behave this way? I also recently had a Happy Hour with all my coworkers on a Friday evening. I didn’t check in with him until I told wrote him I had arrived home safely. He said “ you couldn’t pick up your phone in 7 hours!” To check in with me? I thought he’d understand I was out with coworkers a few are male and wasn’t expecting a check in message from me. This upset him and he went cold on me for about 2 days. There is a double standard here though because there are times where he will be out and does not check in with me for hours sometimes not till the next day. I’m trying to understand this man. What am I missing here Anna?
Hi Meredith V!
If he’s responding that way then he’s immature sweetheart. It’s not your job or responsibility to send him pics of yourself. He holds expectations of you that are ridiculous. He sounds jealous and controlling as well. That’s not a good sign. Unless you two live together and have THAT kind of commitment, it’s silly for him to be this way with you. Tell him you aren’t comfortable with this behavior or his double standards. You’re not missing anything. I just fear that if you two get more serious, he’s going to get worse with the controlling thing. Please be careful with yourself and don’t put up with nonsense. You deserve a man who is going to allow you to be you. I wish you all the best!
I want him back.In a cool way by not showing him that without him am gonna die.But he still snobbs me what should i do?
Hi Katryn Rowings!
Well if he’s giving you the cold treatment then you should definitely do the no contact thing for a month or two. Don’t reach out to him at all. I know that will be tough but it will basically test him on whether he cares about you or not. If he never reaches out in this time then it means he’s not interested. It also gives you more clarity of what you want and if he’s worth your time or effort. I wish you the best sweetheart!
