How to Keep a Capricorn Man Interested after an Argument

What happens when you really piss off a Capricorn man or hurt his feelings? What should you do to ensure he won’t break it off? There are things you should know about the Capricorn guy and how he responds to conflict. Keep reading for how to keep a Capricorn man interested.

How Bad Was It? Figure it out!

Before you can really know for sure if you can get him back or keep him interested in you after you’ve gotten into an argument with him, you need to determine how bad it actually was.

What happened between you two? Did you betray him in some way? Did you just argue over something stupid? That’s what you have to look at. If it wasn’t that big of a deal, then it shouldn’t be too hard to keep his interest.

He’s not going to drop you over something really dumb. Capricorn man is righteous, but he’s not ridiculous. Remember, he’s a critical thinker and will analyze things before he just throws love away.

If he committed himself to you, you’d have to betray his moral system or lie to him in a really underhanded way for him to give up all he’s worked for in cultivating a relationship with you.

Even if you had a nasty fight; if love is still there on both your sides, then keeping him interested shouldn’t even be an issue. It takes a Capricorn man a long time to fall for someone typically. He’s cautious and won’t settle.

Looking back at your argument, was it something that in his mind was unforgivable? If it was then it might be very difficult for you to keep his interest. If it was something that is totally forgivable, then there is no reason you have to work to keep interested.

Capricorn Man Grudges

How to Keep a Capricorn Man Interested

Ok, Earth signs are typically the ones in the zodiac that are notorious for holding onto things and manifesting grudges against people. Again, it will have to be determined on what happened that caused the fight.

If you lied to him or betrayed him in some way, he will hold it against you, and even if you work hard to keep his interest, it will still be somewhere in the back of his mind what you did, and he’s likely to bring it up again.

Capricorn men are like elephants. They never forget. They may forgive, and they may do their best to move forward, but if you really wronged them, they will not be able to forget what you’ve done, and it will always be used in future arguments.

It may actually make him use the “strike” system on you depending on how bad it was. You know the saying “three strikes, and you’re out”? That’s how he may operate depending on what you did that really scarred his heart.

It’s hard to work against the Capricorn man’s grudges. If you’ve done something that really messed with his head, he may never get past it even if he tries to make it work with you.

He’ll need some time to try to heal, and while he’s doing that, you need to give him space. If you don’t, you’ll truly regret it, and you may lose your Capricorn man in the process.

What You Should Do

Most women want to reach out and try desperately to reach their Capricorn man when a huge fight has occurred. The text, call, and won’t stop trying to get his attention in fear he’ll leave.

With that said, don’t do this! When you know he’s angry, say you are truly sorry and then let him have some space. Give him some time to simmer down. If he really loves you, he will return.

If he really had interest in you before this mishap, he will remember that, and he will weigh the pros and cons of whether or not he should give it another chance or if he should let go.

I can almost guarantee you that if he really cared deeply for you before this happened, he will come back to you. He may tell you he’s going to have to work it out in his head, but he won’t let go of you that easily.

So when you get the urge to text him several times in a day trying desperately to get him to respond, stop yourself. Step back, put the phone down, and take a deep breath. If you bombard him, he’s going to shut down, and you won’t hear from him at all.

Do whatever you have to do in order to vent your own frustration but without talking to him about it. You can call up some of your friends, family, or someone that will listen and give you support.

You can also punch a punching bag, pillow, or scream at the top of your lungs with no one around. Go for a hike, jog, do some yoga or even meditation. Do what it takes to help you nurture yourself and refrain from reaching out to him.

I know it’s not easy to not reach out but telling him you’re sorry then stepping back will help him to think things over and figure out how he really feels for you. If the love was there, it still would be.

Be There For Him

How to Keep a Capricorn Man Interested

When he’s ready to talk to you again, he’ll come back. He will want to discuss why things went the way they did and what will happen next. Be very open and honest with him.

It’s best to get everything out on the table and do it diplomatically. Don’t attack him for the role he played or how he went about responding to you. If he started the fight, don’t point the finger there either.

Basically, you have rather approach what the subject was, how you felt about it, and what you’d like to go going forward to avoid that situation from happening again. Talk to him about solutions and healing. He’ll be more receptive than you think.

  1. Virgo
    I’m inlove with a capricorn married man and I been with him for 3 years. The argument was him spending to much personal time with his wife, she fedding him meals. I just want him to choose or let me walk

    1. Hi Sassy: I’m in the same boat but I’ve only been with my man for 2 months. We were friends for forever, and it just escalated sudeenly one day.
      He has already told me that he has chosen to be with me but he has so much to lose, that he may be a different man if he gives it all up…
      I don’t know what to do, but I know i will not spend 3 years to find out….may I ask why you stay? Other than the obvious “love”?

    2. Hi Sassy!

      Why are you allowing him to make you his second choice? Either you need to decide to stay or go. Pushing him to decide isn’t exactly the right way to do it. He’s going to keep you both for as long as you allow him to. You have to choose here. Either you put up with it or you walk. Capricorn man is normally dedicated to his family. Please be careful!

  2. This website helps SO MUCH.
    My boyfriend of 7 months is a Capricorn (Earth) and I’m a Scorpio (Water). We have this unbreakable bond that we argue each month and make up. I try to figure out where I went wrong each time and why he seems so nonchalant in moments. It is devastating. But I understand that my deep emotions don’t correspond with his earth emotions when we’re upset. It’s definitely best to cool off and talk later.

    This has opened up my eyes to so much and makes so much sense..

    1. Hi Talaya!

      I am so glad to hear you two have found your way. Yes, you’re more emotionally visible than he is. Absolutely you two do things differently and I’m happy to hear that you both realize that and that it’s best for you two to calm yourselves then talk things through. Perfect! I wish you much happiness! You should check out my book “Capricorn Man Secrets” for more information.

    2. Hi. I’ve had 2 dates and lots of text some phone calls with a capricorn. I felt very close to him after 2nd date and texted him that but he made fun of my enthusiasm, the worst bit him calling me dope, which triggered stuff from my childhood. Then he said I was often down in texts which is not true. Often at first he seems grumpy but I don’t judge. I tried to talk with him about it to no avail. I ended up telling him to f off and put the phone down. Now I regret it. He is not answering texts or messages.

  3. Gemini

    I have a boyfriend who is CAPRICORN (ldr) we argue about something that it’s not really that big issue to argue. It’s about how we first met and just told him honestly that when I met him “I don’t like him physically” but at some point what I really meant about that is when you first met a guy on a date you don’t trust them at first and we usually look for physically but I’m not, I found something on his soul that connects with me that night and I explained it to him while were talking. On the next day he brought it up in the conversation telling me I’m sorry I’m not that attractive, I’m not for you then I started to explain it to him again and he got mad. I don’t understand why, then I seek some advice to my friends and told me I should’ve said that which later on I found it they’re right, I accepted it I made an apology and he still doesn’t wanna talk to me. The next day when I messaged him that I really wanna talk it about he responded about being insecure and telling me he’s not the one for me and I should found a guy who is physically emotionally and mentally attractive. Which made me upset? I feel hurt and doesn’t even think what I feel. I already knew the consequences with having a relationship with him but still I chose him. The next day I message him again telling him that I’m giving you space but I really need an answer as soon as possible he is worth to fight for because I love him so much. I never felt anything like this to anyone and he responded that he got recovered already, to those negative things he thought about and will talk about it with him tomorrow. I just hope he realizes that I’m really true to him and I’m wiling to take risks for this relationship as long as I know he’s true to me.

    That’s it my story!

    1. Hi Seina!

      Ouch! You hurt his ego telling him you didn’t like him physically when you met him. That’s not something like Capricorn wants to hear honey. I know you thought you were being honest but that’s very hurtful for him to hear. He probably won’t let that go for awhile as it’s a wound that is deep. I think if you want to succeed with him, you’re going to have to learn how to talk to him in a much smoother way. I would’t pressure him either otherwise he’s going to shut down. You should check out my book “Capricorn Man Secrets” for more information.

      1. Ours is a long distance relationship of 18 months. 6 months ago I found that my Capricorn man cheated on me (Virgo). We broke up for about 3 months and after him asking we decided to give the relationship another go.
        4 months later he assures me that there is no one else he is seeing. Yet he is still talking to other woman on social media. I still have trust issues and don’t know if i should believe him or not.

        1. Hi Janine!

          I am so very sorry to hear your Capricorn man was unfaithful. I know as a Virgo, that really makes you feel beyond betrayed. It will take time for him to prove himself for you to trust him again. I would tell him that him talking to other women are not giving you confidence in him and since he was the one that cheated, he is the one that has to earn your trust. If he cannot do that then you are better off without him. If you want to know more about Capricorn men, please check out my books on Capricorn Man Secrets.

  4. Libra
    Hey Anna! I was dating a Capricorn man for the past months.
    One day I threw a pencil and hit his forehead (i was doing it playfully because he was lost in his thought) that apparently left a grudge in gis head.
    He went back to his hometown and we were in LDR, one day we had a fight and he threw that event back to spice up the arguments that we were having, he wanted us to end right then and there saying that “it won’t be good for both of us to force this relationship any further” for days I’ve tried and tried to reason with him no result whatsoever. Until one day, the day of my departure (I’m leaving my home to work in Europe) before I take off, I send him a very long text on how I feel about this argument and his reaction and remind him what is our goal in this relationship on the first place. But he still stands firm on his decision saying “we still can be friends and stay in touch”
    That’s when I give him my piece of mind, telling him that “all his words are rubbish and I was too dumb to believe what he said, either he blocks my number or I block his”
    End the end I block his number, never knew what his response to.
    Help! I really need advice on how to deal with cap man!!!

    1. Hi Em!

      Oh my… ok so he thought you were being careless throwing that pencil thus it hitting his head. He probably thought “what if she had actually got me in the eye with that, how stupid”. I can guarantee this is how they think. That would also make you childish in his mind. That would lead him to feel you are not the one for him. Yes just from one incident, they can decide to shut off and shut you out. What you can do is try to remain friends and see if he cools down enough to give it another chance. Reach out and ask him how he’s doing and that you’ve been thinking of him. If you would like to learn more about Capricorn man, please read “Capricorn Man Secrets”.

  5. We met 3 months ago … but he was fast in falling for me and taking things so serious … he was possessed with me .. and he kept telling me that this is so special to him cuz he usually takes time to feel comfortable to someone and that he hasnt felt “in love” since so many years …. He suddenly got cold and i asked him whats wrong after several times he revealed that he is going through something and he wants me to bear with him and give him time … Every couple of days i check up on him but then i started to be suspicious because he started to act weird but i tried to ask it calmly with explaining my feelings … he never had a clear answer .. so i tried to change the question “ how do you want me to treat you when you say you need your time” .. but whatever i ask or say pisses him off … and conflict after a conflict made me finally ask him .. do you want me to br at your side and in your life or not??

    But he never responded… and that was it .. <\3

    1. Hi Sara!

      That’s really odd that a Capricorn would act that way in the beginning. It’s uncharacteristic. Yes his going cold is because he realized he went to fast and now realizes that he isn’t ready to move that quick. If he asks for time then just be patient and give it to him. I know it’s hard but you can do this. If you do then he’ll give you a better future. Once or twice a week say “Hi, hope you are doing well. I’m thinking of you” and then leave it there. Either he will reply or he won’t. If he does then great. If not after about a month of trying, you may just want to give up and walk away. It sounds like you’re thinking of doing that anyway.

  6. Hi,
    I have this Capricorn guy who was so eager in the beginning telling me he wants me and kept calling me daily for 2 months.. and he knows I’m already falling for him like a month ago.. but he would still call like almost 3 times a day…then all of a sudden, he told me he’s gonna stop calling completely… then I’d be surprised that he would call still but not as often.. then go back to being cold. How should I deal with this behavior?

    1. Hi Annia!

      It would seem he’s testing you to see how you endure this. If you pass his test he will give you the word. He wants to make sure you’re not going to bail on him when it gets difficult. I would tell him this game isn’t necessary and that you’re there for him and he needs to trust it. He needs to trust you. Don’t let his tests scare you off if you really care. I wish you all the best!

      1. Hi,
        I am with my capricorn love for few years now, and 2 days ago while we were having an argument i failed his ”test”. The thing is, we built a really strong relationship, and we both love each other so much. Unfortunately, while arguing i told him that I am leaving him if he doesn’t change one specific thing and there is where I failed. I then explained over the phone that I dont want to leave that i could give him my sould if he needs it, but he thinks that i am not being loyal. Now I am really afraid to lose him, I called him yesterday but he hasn’t answered the call. What should I do? I am a pisces 🙁

        1. Hi HumbleGirl!

          Well, you didn’t mention why it is that he thinks you aren’t being loyal. There had to have been something you did or said that would make him feel that way. If you don’t know what it is then ask him why he feels you aren’t loyal and express to him why you ARE loyal. Tell him you were really upset with him and got overly emotional thus giving him an ultimatum (NO Capricorn man accepts ultimatums). Tell him you are sorry and want to talk to him about it. Hopefully that helps! You might want to check out my book though for more useful information.

  7. Hi,

    I have been with a Capricorn man for 2 years. We met in Australia for a year and then since us both coming back to the uk where we both live, we have had a long distance relationship as he lives 4 hours from me. Last week we was texting fine but he wasn’t returning my calls in the evening. I did lose it at the end of the week and tried calling him a lot which may have come across a bit psycho of me. He didn’t reply to me and blocked me on everything. I tried messaging him the next day but he didn’t respond so I left it. Sunday he text me and said it was a bit much and he just needed space. I replied and said I was sorry and explained that he should take as much time as he needs. He had since unblocked me but not messaged me. I just want to know when he will message as it drives me crazy when he doesn’t speak to me and I feel this was over something very small which I apologised for. (I am a cancer)

    1. Hi CGirl!

      Yes, he sounds like a Capricorn. His time is very important to him and seeing you flip out like you did made him worry about whether or not this will work. He’s not sure if you will do it again even if you say you won’t. To avoid this type of thing though, he should have communicated with you and told you what was going on so you wouldn’t worry. It kind of goes both ways. Tell him that you need him to touch base with you even when he’s taking space otherwise you won’t know and feel hurt that he’s ignoring you. Don’t let him just do whatever while you wait around for him. There has to be compromise. If you would like to know more about Capricorn men, check out my books!

  8. I have been with a Capricorn boyfriend for a few months and our relationship is on and off. he is busy with work and we meet up only when he wants sex. We have a big fight last week over a small issue and he texted don’t contact anymore. He blocked me on all the social media channels. Will he come back?

  9. Hi, I need help trying to see what I should do. This Capricorn man added me on Facebook, we talked and got to know each other for a little over two weeks, we met up to have lunch and he talked about the future with me which is something a cap man would do. A few days later I came over to his apartment and one thing lead to another and we became very intimate that night, I even spent the entire night and left his place at 12in the afternoon the next day. He told me he’d be busy with errands and his kid, I didn’t hear back from him until the next day around 3PM and I told him that I felt used and he said that he didn’t like how that made him feel like and if that’s the case then we should just be friends. I decided to text him saying that he means a lot to me and that I would give him space and when he’s ready to talk that we should do it in person rather through text. It’s been two days now and he still isn’t responding but he’s looking at my stories or posts. What should I do?
