Capricorn Man Ignoring Texts – Do Not Let It Go Easily!

What can you do when you’ve been trying to get a hold of your Capricorn man via text message but he’s not responding? Does he make a habit of this or is he upset with you? You may want to keep following so that you can find out what you can do when your Capricorn man is ignoring your texts.

Why He Isn’t Returning Your Texts

Sometimes it’s true that a Capricorn man will play the hot and cold game. This will include going silent out of nowhere when everything seemed just fine. Capricorn man sometimes does a disappearing act.

He tends to do this when he feels pressured or feels he isn’t getting enough space. He likes personal freedom and rather than make it a point to let his partner know this, he may just take it by vanishing.

He will likely come back if he is really into the partner or is in love with her but such behaviors really shouldn’t be allowed by the woman. Honestly, he needs to learn to communicate and let his partner know when he feels he needs space.

This is just one reason why he would be ignoring your texts. That’s the main thing that drives the Capricorn man and so this is something totally normal from his perspective but it’s still not exactly acceptable either.

In this case, you really want to let him know it’s not alright to just disappear without even so much of a text to tell you he needs some time or space to himself so he can think.

Another reason he might not return your text is that he’s really angry or upset about a conversation or argument you two may have had. When he’s upset, he has to take some time to decompress.

While you’re over there blowing up his phone with texts, he’s looking at how desperate you look and decides to make you sweat it out. He really doesn’t like drama and he doesn’t like feeling pressured in any sort of way.

If you find he isn’t responding to the first couple of texts you send. You need to send one telling him that you’re going to go ahead with your own life and he can reach out when or if he wants.

This lets him know you’re not going to sit around and wait on him. This also lets him know that you have a life and aren’t making him your main priority. This may wake him up.

If he is upset though, you probably want to back off and let him have a bit of space so he can cool off and get his head together. Maybe he just needs a breather for a little bit.

Capricorn Man Ignoring Texts

The other option here is that Capricorn man has decided that it is over with you. He may have had one too many things happen that he never bothered to tell you and decided to be done.

Sometimes he will not like something about someone and then suddenly, he decides he doesn’t like anything about them anymore and thus he goes dead quiet.

Typically if he’s honest though, he’ll actually tell you it isn’t working out but it maybe after some time of going quiet. Again, if he goes quiet and you have no idea what is going on, back off and let him know that you’re going to go ahead and do your thing and he can feel free to contact you when he’s ready.

Just remember that if you tell him that, you actually do need to do it. Don’t tell him you’re going to and then sit around pining over him. Put your phone down and spend some time with your friends or family.

Go do things that make you happy and remember what it was like before you got together with him. You don’t need him. You want him but you don’t NEED him. Rely on yourself and show him you are independent.

The odds are, if he sees that you’re not sitting around waiting on him to respond, he’s going to step forward again because he feels confident that you aren’t needy or clingy with him.

Ultimately he wants a woman who has a life outside of him that will take time for herself so that he can take time to take care of his own needs at the very same time. It’s easier for him.

When He Isn’t Responding, Here’s What You Do

Ladies, don’t chase him! Let him know that you’re there for him but you’re going to take care of yourself. By not constantly trying to elicit a text back, you’re backing off and letting him be.

He’s probably not going to expect that you back off so when you do, it will be a nice change that he will welcome. He’ll more than likely respond in a positive way as well.

If he doesn’t and he still doesn’t come back around then it’s likely he’s decided you aren’t the one for him and he’s not going to put any more energy or time into having a relationship with you.

Be firm but don’t be mean. Simply text him and let him know that when he decides to talk to you again, you’ll be there but you’re going to go ahead and start doing your own thing again.

I’m not saying you should break up with him but in some way, you want him to think that you’re going ahead with your life and not sitting around wasting energy or time waiting on him.


He’ll probably be impressed by this instead of running from you. Sending one or two texts indicating your intention and letting him know you’ll be there when he’s ready is more than enough.

Another thing here is that when he does come back, you need to let him know that going silent is unacceptable. Tell him if he’s upset with you, has a problem, or wants time alone that he needs to let you know instead of going dead quiet.

  1. My Husband is a Capricorn with a bipolar diagnosis. I am a Taurus. Been married 6 years with a 4yr old plus my 2 kids from a prior relationship.. When things are good, its amazing and we have the best time. However, usually going out ends with something going awry. I am very bubbly and people naturally come my way, which is unacceptable by him if a male happens to utter any words or glance. Somehow it is my fault. I’ve now learned to be quiet and tame in public. Are Capricorn’s known to appreciate their partners? I bend over backwards as to give thoughtful gifts, housekeeping, cooking, entertaining the kids and am the one who normally works non stop while it is the norm for him to job hop seemingly every couple months, if one is held that long it is.. He seems to really appreciate his friendships and will drop everything for a friend. I feel left on the back burner.. I know he has a good heart in there somewhere. I always say that when our son was born that it was the day the grinch got a heart. He’s an amazing dad to our son and adores him.. It is at the moment his saving grace. I tell him at times when we discuss divorce that he’s a crappy
    stepfather & shitty husband, but he’s a really good dad to his son… When we do get intimate, which is extremely rare these days we have fun and get down and dirty… When I am working, things are smoother as I make a lot more money. However, what I make is our money which he accesses whenever and how often he likes, but his checks are considered his money which he counts multiple times a day and hides, which I am also asked daily with a tone if I have touched it and am the first one looked at if he misplaced it forgetting when he hid it.. Disappearing with no communication or replies has become normal these days with a rebuttal of “We talked about it yesterday.” When at most if it was mentioned it was being satiated as “I might or I’m thinking about going _____”. Being the faithful Taurus that I am, I still try daily to make us happy and sometimes it works and a glimpse of what used to be happens.. Is this normal behavior for a male Capricorn? My mother, sister and daughter are all Capricorn’s and yes there is a little bit of selfishness with them, but nothing in comparison.. Also, all I know is that it is true when they say my sign needs sex, because I keep telling my husband that the non sex issue will be the fastest way to get me headed towards that door.

    1. No sex? That’s pretty odd for a Capricorn man. Anyways, you need to stand up to him. Do not take his crap. Capricorn men appreciate a woman with a backbone and will change things around if they feel they will lose you! Capricorn man is a complicated creator and cheap AF, but they are loving. Please don’t accept the BS! Even as his wife, stop making him a priority and see how he behaves. Don’t look for him, don’t beg him for sex… Just do you and focus on your children! See what happens!

      1. HI Evan Patrick!

        Actually Capricorn men will withhold sex if they aren’t feeling good about the relationship. They prioritize and if sex isn’t on their list they will bypass it. I’ve known Capricorn guys that will absolutely pull the plug on their ladies if they feel something is wrong. They will also not dive into bed with someone they really like and are trying to establish a relationship with. Odd I know but Capricorn can either be very cold or can alternatively be very freaky in bed. It can go either way but depends on their frame of mind.

    2. HI Sherry!

      I’m sorry you are having such a rough time with your Capricorn. It’s not good of him to disappear even if he contemplated on going somewhere a day or two before. He should clearly tell you what he’s doing. Not because of duty but more because of respect. You should tell him that it feels like he doesn’t respect you when he treats you that way. As far as sex, Taurus needs more sensuality and intimacy more than just sex. Though if that’s how you get it from him is via sex then this would be why you feel the way you do. Tell him you need intimacy or things will fall apart. Let him know. Don’t assume he knows. Put it all out on the table and put your foot down. Either he’ll make changes to improve things or he’ll tell you he’s not going to change in which you’ll have to decide if you will stay or go. I wish you all the best!

      1. HI Meme Leeks,

        It sounds like your Capricorn was specifically looking for sex, not for love. Not all Capricorn men are looking for sex. In fact, many of them hold back on sex until they find someone worth giving it to. This is typically when they’re looking for a serious commitment. All signs are capable of being sexually loose. Next time ANY man approaches you with a friends with benefits offer, stand up and tell them no way! Have standards and put your foot down. That being said, don’t close yourself off to any one particular sign. There are redeeming and loving qualities in all of them!

    2. HI – MAKE HIM CRY —- 1017

      I’m sorry you feel that way. I need to let you know that not all Capricorn men are this way. While there are bad seeds, there are bad seeds from every sign. Something else to know is that we all have Capricorn somewhere in our birth charts. If you condemn the sign then you are condemning some part of you. Remember, a bad experience or two with a certain sign doesn’t define the whole entire population of them. Let your experiences go and learn from it. Keep your heart open because you never know when love will hit!

  3. I’ve been dating a Cap guy (we’re over 50) for a few months. We were extremely attracted to each other from the start. We’ve been on 8 dates, and he’ll usually text me several times a week. Lots of emojis with hearts, etc.

    The last date it seemed we were getting closer. He uncharacteristically opened up emotionally regarding his past, offhandedly asked me when I was going to move closer, said he had mentioned me to his kids.

    Next week, he asked me out for Friday. That morning, txted me that he was sick and could we pick another day soon.

    Well, it’s been pretty much crickets since then. I reached out once or twice (Have a great day!) he politely responded but
    did not initiate any texts.

    The broken date was a week ago. He hasn’t made a move to reschedule. His last polite response to my text was five days ago.

    Any insight or clues as to what may be going on? I also noted that he rearranged his photos on the dating website where we met. This didn’t make me feel great, although I guess I might do the same sometimes.
    I was hoping that on our next date we’d establish exactly what kind of relationship we have, exclusivity, etc. But that got cancelled.

    I know Caps pull disappearing acts, but I’m bewildered. Could he be pulling away because we’re getting too close?
    Not sure how I should act if he pops up again. In the meantime, I’m going on with my life and not reaching out.

    1. HI Elena!

      If he has been cold since he got sick then perhaps he’s sicker than you thought OR something else in his life came up that he’s having to deal with. Gently text him and ask him how he’s doing and ask him if you can get together now. He should tell you if he cannot and why. If he doesn’t then he is really going through something. Don’t assume he’s no into you anymore though. If he wasn’t then he’d stop replying to the texts that you send. My guess is that he’ll talk to you about what is going on when he feels ready.

  4. I’ve been seeing a cap guy for about 7 months, he got so hot and cold and did the pull and come back thing, when we are together he shows me affection, he holds my hands, he lays in my lap, he cuddles and he’ll cook for me, and ask me questions about my likes and dislikes and really i know he interested and thats why he does that, he ooen with me, and laughs and jokes with me, and sometimes I’ll climpse him becomig shy during some parts of our converation and its so cute…but recently during our last time together, i felt he wanted my love and affection and when i tried to be open and honest with him, he nonchalantly brushed it off, i got upset and called him out for it and told him he hurt my feelings and that i was havig feelings for him, and if he never wanted to see me again i was okay and i understood, and that he would need to let me go and not pop up back and forth in my life , i feel the last part was the part that might have pissed him off and maybe hurt him,he never responded and I’m now sure i might have made him disappear again…any insight will help me please…do i send a message saying that i am here if he chooses …

    1. Hi Lee!

      Alright so if you did hurt his feelings or offend him, you can apologize as best as you can. Tell him what you really meant and not to hurt or offend him. Tell him you’d really like to talk to him and that you want to try to smooth things out with him if he’d be up for it. If he is still unresponsive then you may have to let go. He may come back later then he might not. Focus on you and do what you know is right. Love may come from left field from someone else you never expected. Hang in there!

  5. Hi everyone. I have a similar issue with the Capricorn man I’ve been dating for almost 6 months. It’s been really nice. We’ve had some disagreements but nothing bad. Just recently we talked about his passion for fighting over text message. He trains and is a fighter while he works full time. I questioned him about a fight he did earlier that day with a partner, and then I mentioned that “he takes fighting way too personal”, I even added in a LOL. He texts me back several minutes later and tells me “you fucked up. BIG TIME.✌🏼“ It’s only been a little over a day since we’ve talked but I’ve sent him two text messages. One of them was a very sincere apology and I still haven’t heard anything from him. Could he just be blowing off steam and need some space, or could he really have ended things with me over this minor incident? I could use some feedback

    1. Hi Amanda A!

      Capricorn men love to debate. Yes they can end up taking it personally if they are pointed out to be wrong. Gee… sounds like he took it personally what you said to him too. He’s touchy and hard balling. I would venture to guess that with a little time he’ll calm down and talk to you again. I wouldn’t take too much stock in his attitude. Focus on you and what you want in your life. If he cares, he’ll check in with you too when he doesn’t hear from you. An apology on your part was all you can do. He needs to get over it. You might want to check out my book “Capricorn Man Secrets” as it may help you understand him a bit better.

  6. Hi,

    I’am a leo girl, I’ve been dating with a capricorn man for 6months. We started as a friends & then He me asked for some friends with benefits but I refused & telling him that I want a committed relationship. Now, we are happy together & planning for our future & careers.. I totally understand his hot & cold traits, & appreciated his being strict & protective.

    One day, when we were drunk, he told me that the time we’ve starting dating, he investigating my background & also on my past relationship. I was crying a lot to remembering everything mistakes & bad memories on my past. He got mad at me on my reactions & tantrums. He was telling me about break-up because I keep crying & repeating telling him that I am afraid that maybe someday our relationship will be the same on my past that we do a lot of efforts & then in a long run we will separated. He also got mad at me from being tantrums because I was so drunk. I just want to ask your help for assurance that we will be together & I want to keep him forever. Thanks!!

    1. Hi Miranda!

      It sounds like you two have had a huge misunderstanding. Your past is something you cannot change and you need to tell him that. You can tell him that you can only control what happens now and what will be in the future, not the past. Remind him that everyone has a past and to assume that you’ll do something to mess things up is not right. I cannot guarantee any relationship. It’s up to you to work on it or to let it go. Don’t let him make you feel bad about your past though. That’s something that is done and gone. He needs to accept that and let it go. Either he loves you for who you are now or he doesn’t. Self respect is something you have to have. Stand your ground honey! If you need more help with Capricorn, check out my book “Capricorn Man Secrets”.

  7. Hi!

    I am Taurus dating Capricorn guy for about 7 months. Everything was wonderful in our relationship. The first 5 months things were moving smooth and pretty fast. We spent dates out, he invited me to stay at his place for weekends, we took a short trip overseas together, a lot of affections and wonderful moments together.. then he started feeling gloomy, and a bit distant..when I asked him of what’s going on he said he was getting negative and having bad moods. And also that he feels weird inside him and he is lost in his emotions with me.That’s when his work started getting affected coz of pandemic. We however still stayed in good loving communication but less phone calls.. we finally had our next date in March when he confessed his feelings for me. And I did too. We had wonderful time.
    With time situation at work got more difficult and we got into lockdown. He messaged me a week ago that he hope things improve by May-June at work. That he needs to pursue his work and he won’t be emotional but rather transactional to achieve this.
    Before that our date got cancelled, no more phone calls and texts became colder and this point he doesn’t text me and doesn’t respond to my texts I make sure not to text much at all..but I still worry as I’m not comfortable with this non communication. Do you think he will come back to normal with me? Did he really mean that he loves me? It’s just his silence in my mind isn’t logical as we had such a beautiful relationship without any issue between us..we are very compatible when we’re together. Why is it so easy for him to just disconnect emotionally and keep such distance? Thank you!:)

  8. Hello…

    So I’m a Leo and I’ve been chatting to this capricorn man for 2 weeks.
    In our initial chats I made it clear to him that I am not a ONE NIGHT STAND or a FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS kind of woman.

    So I was nervous about meeting him alone. So he invited me to his friends birthday party and and said I could bring a friend along. So I went there to meet him and everything was amazing the whole night went well and he was a complete gentleman. He complimented me the whole night and catered to me. There was other women there and he didn’t even look their way.

    My friend then had to leave and I stayed with him, because he asked me too and we get on so well, i felt really comfortable.

    We were a few drinks in and both of us pretty drunk we went to his place and we spoke and laughed and chilled, but the sexual tension was so intense. I rejected him and told him I’m not going to sleep with him and then he was so upset and I passed out and woke up to him sitting in a corner on a chair and sulking and I told him to come lay be me and we cuddled and more kisses and then I just gave in and we had really amazing sex.

    The we cuddled all through the night and we were just so affectionate. The next morning he made me breakfast and and we spoke and then he took me home.

    We spoke that day for a bit he was checking up on me and then he told me he is going into work mode and hasn’t replied to my last message that was 2 days ago

    He is a very successful man and really wealthy, he has 2 successful companies to run. So I understand he is busy, but before we met he used to message me daily and now nothing.

    I’m not sure if I messaged it up by sleeping with him on the first date? Should I message him or should I leave the ball in his court? We really had such a great connection and I don’t want to lose out on getting to know him more.

  9. Hello I’m a Leo and I’ve been with a Capricorn for almost a year now, I love him more than the world and our time has been really good together despite our small arguments. As you know covid-19 kept us apart for 5 weeks and during this time, 2 weeks in he ghosted me one night and we ended up fighting about it the next day because he didn’t think it was a big deal. He broke up with me that day saying it wasn’t working anymore. This especially effected me because he promised a lot that nothing would change in our time apart and that he couldn’t imagine life without me. It shattered my heart. The next day he ignored me until I found out he was on the app we met on again. I called him out about it and he said he was just looking at our old chats and he would never want to be with anyone else. I’m not sure if I believe him as he updated his pictures. But after that talk he asked if I would be with him again after only one day. Of course I said yes and since then I’ve been really insecure and my anxiety has been extremely bad. Having panic attacks and break downs constantly asking if he’ll leave or if he’s cheating. He began getting sick of it and I think he nearly left me again yesterday but we sorted it out and he felt very relieved but I didn’t. I’m a very clingy and needy person and I don’t think he likes that I call and text him a lot when I panic and our relationship is the most important thing in my life. He said I needed to find some more things in my life in case anything happens but then assured me nothing will. He says he needs space and things to slow down but I’m scared after space he won’t want to come back and he’ll leave forever. He goes hot and cold, messages a lot and then not much and when he’s tired he is very moody and gets kind of mean. I don’t think he’s putting as much effort in the relationship as me but I feel if I bring it up he may get stressed and leave me. He says the day without me made him realise how bad it is without me but I can never be sure. I can’t imagine life without him and I really need help! 🙁
