Capricorn Man Turn Offs (11 Things That Turn Off A Capricorn Man)

by Anna Kovach, relationship astrologer
What really grinds on Capricorn’s gears when it comes to women? Here're some of the biggest turn-offs for a Capricorn man.

Capricorn man turn offs are not easy to reveal. These guys can be one of the most committed signs you can get. But they do tend to take their sweet time about getting serious. And sometimes, Capricorns can come across as cold, uncaring, uninterested, and downright grumpy. 

They are also notorious bachelors, so it takes a fair amount of effort – and the right woman, to convince them that being in a relationship is better than being single. This is especially true if they have been previously married or in serious relationships.

However, the truth is, Capricorn men are all soft inside. They’re just scared of being vulnerable, that’s all! With that said, Capricorn men do have specific turn-offs that could end the relationship earlier than intended. 

So, do you want to know what turns off a Capricorn man? Capricorn men are notoriously hard to read, so this should be the perfect guide for you! 

The trick with him is to give it lots and lots of time, and not to chase him away by pushing his buttons. These are the top turn-offs that could have a Capricorn man leaving you, even if you are a great woman!

What Turns Off a Capricorn Man

There is a list of things that turn a Capricorn man off. It’s important to know what they are. You might accidentally do one of them without knowing it, and then suddenly your Capricorn man goes cold.

Fortunately, you have my help! I can absolutely give you an informed list so that you aren’t navigating in the dark. You’ll know exactly what not to do so that you don’t make a huge mistake with him.

A Capricorn man becomes icy cold or can even ghost if he feels uncomfortable with someone. Remember, his morals are normally very exact, and he won’t accept anything less from any woman.

A Capricorn also doesn’t get involved very quickly because he wants to test a woman to make sure she’s not going to exhibit any of the behaviors that he cannot stand. That being said, let me now discuss with you the Capricorn man turn offs.

7 Biggest Capricorn Man Turn Offs In A Woman

1. Do Not Be Wasteful

Wasteful behavior is what turns a Capricorn man off really quickly. He has no desire to be with someone who cannot live within their means.

Anything that can be considered somewhat wasteful will make him feel as though you really don’t contribute to society; you help harm it. And he loves helping save humanity. There are things you can do to make a difference.

Put those extra chips back. Look at the shoes in your closet; do you really need another pair? When was the last time you donated some things you don’t really have to have? These are things he looks at.

Recycling will be something that he stands behind. Do your best to keep the environment healthy. Separate your garbage so that it goes to the correct receptacles.

If you shop at second-hand stores or consignment shops for your clothing instead of spending a lot of money at department stores, he’ll be very impressed. Looking your best doesn’t require lots of money.

Repurposing things will get his attention as well. Instead of throwing things out, try to find another purpose they can fulfill. Have an empty box; turn it into a plant potter. There are lots of things you can do.

2. Do Not Display Hysterical Behavior

The Capricorn man is rather conservative in some ways. He loves women who are cool, calm, collected, and can carry themselves well. That means that he isn’t into women who are bold, brash, and loud.

The women who act as though they need everyone in the vicinity’s attention will turn him off fairly quickly. These types of women are seen as not being classy or respectful.

He sees no need for a big hurrah from any woman. Keeping it relaxed and respectful is his motto. Showing off or trying to make a spectacle of yourself will turn his head quickly and not in your direction.

This is one of the biggest Capricorn men’s turn-offs. He loves a lady, not a loud, boastful woman who loves to brag. He will turn his back quickly.

3. Don’t Push Him

Just like the other slow-moving signs, Capricorn will not tolerate being pushed to go quicker than he wants to. This will most definitely turn him off. He doesn’t want to be told what to do, nor does he want to be rushed.

Trying to talk him into it will not win you any favors either. He has his mind set on what he wants or doesn’t want. He isn’t very flexible, so if you have plans to try to get him to listen to why you want to hurry, you won’t win.

You may also find yourself getting frustrated trying to get him to change his mind. It may be best for you to either abide by his need for patience or move on and find someone who is more open to moving quickly.

A Capricorn man cannot be convinced of anything he does not agree with or that goes against his moral code. Trying to make a relationship go faster is one of those things that doesn’t sit well with him.

You could end up heartbroken if you cannot let things flow naturally and with time. There is no other way to succeed with him other than to make sure you take your time and put in the effort.

Honestly, there is no real need to hurry anyway. Go with the flow, do it day by day, and watch the growth that develops between you two over time. It will be healthier for the two of you.

4. Don’t Be Too Emotional

The Capricorn man isn’t one for being emotional. He’s about rational discussions and talking about facts. Talking about feelings is alright, but if you become overly emotional, he’ll want to walk away.

If you’re the type that cries at the drop of a hat, the Capricorn may not be the right guy for you. He will see absolutely no logic in the reason why you’re being so overreactive.

When you argue with a Capricorn man, you have to do it with intelligence rather than emotion. He doesn’t get the whole getting upset and crying thing at all. It makes no sense to him.

If you can talk to him coherently and draw reasonable conclusions, you’re more likely to win his heart. Going at him yelling, screaming, or throwing a fit will show him that you’re exactly what he doesn’t want.

So that means that if you’re unable to talk to him in a calm, rational way, he may not be the guy who fits you for the long haul. Showing too much emotion makes him very uncomfortable.

5. Stop Being A Slob

While the Capricorn man may not be a “white glove” type of guy, he is clean. He expects the woman he will be with to be neat and tidy. One of the things that will turn him off quickly is a woman being a slob.

If he goes to your home and there is stuff everywhere, he’ll quickly want to turn around and walk back out. The same goes with your own appearance as well as perhaps even your car.

He wants to see that you take pride in what you look like, that your home is clean, and that your car reflects how you and your home are kept. He figures if you spent more time cleaning, you wouldn’t have a lazy time.

Keep a tight ship ladies! You’ll win over your Capricorn man far better by making sure your place is tidy and cozy. This is definitely what turns off a Capricorn man.

6. Get Over His Past

Something that could have him leaving you, no matter how wonderful you are, could be him being unable to get over his past, particularly his relationship past. 

For example, he may have been cheated on, or his ex really hurt him in some terrible way. If it’s still fresh this is even more likely. Capricorn men have a way of totally shutting down, and not being able to be open to new love or vulnerable for a long while. 

There’s very little you can do here, but let him go, and show you would be ready to be all his if he gave you that chance. It’s a sad situation when he’s hung up and bitter, but he will come around, eventually, if you two are meant to be. 

Acting with integrity will go a long way to making sure he remembers you and the possibilities that you could have had together. 

7. Don’t Have A Lack Of Ambition

There’s nothing wrong with not having ambition, first of all, ladies. If you are happy to be a woman in her more feminine role of homemaker, wife, and mother, that’s a glorious and special role in society! 

However, that may not be what the typical Capricorn man wants in a relationship (even if that’s actually what he needs!). He may be in a stage of his life where he wants a woman who has ambition equal to his. 

This means a woman who climbs the career ladder and is also somehow at the top of her professional game. Think boardrooms and achievements, conferences, and business trips! He does find that sexy, and he will compete with you!

However, if you are less ambitious, and want to live a quiet, pressure-free life, he may not find you on his wavelength – and that’s okay. However, does that mean your relationship will fail? Not exactly. If he sticks around, he may find that this is the perfect balance for him.

What Turns A Capricorn Man Off In Bed? 4 Sexual Turn Offs For A Capricorn Man

8. Unwilling To Experiment

Sex will undoubtedly become a routine and not an adventure when you repeat the same activity all the time. Capricorns are always willing to go beyond the regular procedures, but when you cut short the excitement by refusing to experiment, it becomes a huge turn off for a Capricorn man.

Open up to him about who you are sexually and what you want in bed. Again, this is only when the time is appropriate, and he’s opened the door to you with this information. Relax and find the right time, then you can open up about what you want and let your Capricorn man satisfy you in bed.

Once that door is open, you can ask him what he’d like in bed. Ask him what his fantasies are and what would turn him on. Being open will help the two of you have some really intense and passionate sex.

9. Being Overly Aggressive

He doesn’t want to know how freaky or willing you are until he’s the one busting the moves to head in a sexual direction. He’s a dominant guy, so trying to push yourself on him won’t go over well.

Let him figure it out when he’s ready, not a moment sooner; otherwise, you’re going to find yourself pushed away. He will go cold very quickly to a woman who’s trying to bed him before he’s there in his own mind.

If you’re open for a wild ride, a Capricorn man will surely bring a saddle. He’s truly unique and has some freaky ideas. Some of them may bring you ultimate pleasure, so why not stay open to suggestions?

What matters is not to be dominant, and he will fulfill all your fantasies.

10. If You’re Not Classy

Capricorn men love women who are classy. What’s the opposite of classy? Well, it’s someone who doesn’t particularly care if they burp, wear sweatpants, or drink pints of beer.

Is there anything wrong with being non-classy? Not at all! You be you, but a Capricorn man is not going to take you to bed because it is a huge sexual turn-off for a Capricorn.

Be like a classic woman from the old days who allows a man to court her and romance her. Dress sexy, but not in a way that is too revealing. He’ll be taken by your beauty and sense of class.

It just takes time for him to open up. Be patient, but always stand your ground. It will develop respect for you, rather than being the helpless type who needs him and will give into every demand that he has.

11. Sticking To Routine

In bed, a Capricorn man may want to play some games, but not out of the bedroom. He’s a closet freak, but he won’t share that until he’s actually in a position to do so with a beautiful woman.

Being a missionary at the specified time of day will make him lose interest in you. Not being willing to explore in the bedroom is a sexual turn-off for a Capricorn man.

Breaking routine and adding excitement is important in maintaining a relationship with a Capricorn man. Communication is the key. You should discuss with him what turns you on and not be afraid to explore fantasies and role-playing with your man.

Routine sex kills the desire in the long run.

How To Turn On A Capricorn Man Again

If you want to take life by the horns, you’ve got to get out there. That doesn’t mean a Capricorn man doesn’t like watching movies or television. It just means that there is a time and a place. If your house looks like a dump, it’s not time for TV. It’s time to get up and clean.

That means if you are trying to impress or attract a Capricorn man, you’re going to have to clean yourself up a bit. Don’t be fake, though. You have to genuinely want to improve your surroundings, including yourself.

He likes his women to be quite independent, though he also doesn’t mind providing for you once he is committed. In fact, the Capricorn man is one of the best to have in a long-term relationship, as he is incredibly faithful and responsible to you.

Be patient, but always stand your ground. It will develop respect for you, rather than being the helpless type who needs him and will give into every demand that he has. This will make him turn on!

Do Capricorn Men Lose Interest Easily?

Yes. Especially if you are needy or clingy.

A Capricorn man is not into manipulative, passive-aggressive, or capricious women who always need to be in control. It’s not that they need to dominate you, so much as that they need to be appreciated and valued.

As a Capricorn man, he is one of those people who really needs words of affirmation to feel loved and appreciated by their lover. They want to hear that they are amazing men. That they are perfect. This is how a Capricorn man commits to a woman.

He needs to know that he is her prize. Otherwise, he will easily lose interest.

  1. Hi, I’m heart broken. I dated a Cap man for 4 months. Fell in love with him. He decided to tell me he was in a marriage of convenience. I slapped him in shock because I was so hurt and thought all this time he was mine only to plan my life with. He went off for an interview and “forgot” I was at his place waiting for him. I waited 4 hours and got upset inside my heart. When he came back at 1.15am he said he missed me and that if I loved him – now is not the time to talk about it. I had missed my bus and wanted him to pay for my cab (lease he could do after dropping this news). Weirdly, his bank card couldn’t be found. Another bank card had no money. So he walked me home. In silence. He loves his sleep and was seething mad that I made him walk me home 25 mins. After that, no contact for 4 days.

    Pls help me understand – why is it my fault now? I’ve “begged” him to take my apology for my outburst and shared that we should talk and move pat this together since we love each other.

    But still silence.

    I’m hurt beyond words. Now I suspect he met his ex the following night. And I am even more heart broken.

    To all – pls help this heart broken Pisces girl. I love him so much and we click so much and he said he wanted to spend his life with me. What kind of love is he showing me if he can’t even take my response to this awful news and walk me home?

    1. Yikes. That was a mistake. Never think a cap would be jealous of you with another man. He will only disrespect you and see right through this manipulation. If there was more than sex between you he might rethink it. But you will have to wait: being honest and admitting you were wrong to him might change the situation somewhat because he likes honesty. Good luck

  2. I’ve been sleeping with this Capricorn man we are not together but he dose make an effort to see me text me but I posted a video of me and another guy in best together to make him jealous and I think it’s the worst decision I have ever made I want him to be more open on the way he feels I can never know what he is thinking
