Capricorn Man Negative Traits He Wants to Hide Badly

What is it about that hard to get Capricorn man that makes him come off as mysterious? While he can often seem warm and inviting, he also has a side of him that is something that you may want to be aware of if you’re getting involved with him. Take a look below to find out what the Capricorn man’s negative traits are.

Mood Swings Are Intense

The Capricorn man is mostly stable but he can have a tendency to be in a bad mood from time to time. This is especially true if something is going on in his life that causes him distress.

When he has this type of mood, he becomes negative, pessimistic, grumpy, and could say things he doesn’t really mean. He may pick an argument or is set off easily by small things.

This type of mood is best avoided if at all possible. If you talk to him on the phone or see him in person and can tell he’s in a not so nice mood, it might be best to just leave him alone so he can work things out with himself.

He will let you know if he wants to talk to you or vent out his frustrations but much of the time he’d rather be alone with his thoughts. When he’s feeling better, he’ll come back around to his normal self.

I do also want to point out that he can be rather unpredictable with his moods. I say he’s stable much of the time but the thing is, you never really know when these bad moods will come on so just be aware his temper is much like the planet Uranus, impossible to predict.

Arrogant or Narcissistic

Capricorn Man Negative Traits

Some Capricorn men can swing to the extremes when it comes to feeling that they know what is best for themselves and everyone else around them. They know it all and won’t easily accept anyone else’s ideas.

He may come off as someone who cares more about what he likes or what he’s doing than what anyone else wants. He’s self aware and he very much feels that he has a handle on most things.

He knows he’s intelligent but he makes himself seem very cocky when he’s being assertive. Being assertive is alright if you’re going to use it for something positive. He on the other hand, uses it for other things that are more pessimistic.

His thoughts or ideas are always better than anyone else’s. At least, that’s what he believes anyway. This is what gives him the arrogance that people see. He seems like a “know it all” that you really just want to walk away from.

He knows he looks good too so don’t ever try to tell him different or he will shun you after he puts you in your place. While he is very handsome, his attitude can make him start to look ugly.

Demanding In His Way

The Capricorn man has his own set of morals and standards. He expects most people to live up to it and when they do not, he is ready to boot them out of his life for good.

That being said, if you’re in a relationship with a Capricorn man, you need to know that he’s going to be demanding of you. He’s going to have high expectation of what you should be and how you should treat him.

This can develop into him expecting too much and demanding you to be a way that goes against your grain. Be careful and be sure to stand up for yourself. While he’s demanding, he doesn’t like door mat type of women.

He wants a strong woman who will not be afraid to tell him what is what and how she’s not going to allow him to control her. He will try though and if you allow it, he’ll think it’s alright to always do it.

Put him in his place and tell him you’ll be who you are and nothing less, he will have to accept it and love you “as is” or he’ll have to realize that he can’t have it his way which may make him flee.

If he does flee then you aren’t missing out on much. A man who wants to give you up because you’re not living up to his standards probably doesn’t deserve you anyway.

Jealous and Untrusting

Capricorn Man Negative Traits

The Capricorn man is jealous by nature. He figures what is his, is his. He doesn’t want to share and he surely doesn’t trust anyone. He has to learn how to trust someone with time.

If you’ve just begun to date a Capricorn man, it’s going to take time before he feels he can trust you. While he may come off as into you and happy, he has reservations in the back of his mind he won’t share with you.

With time and patience, you might start to see signs of trust like how much he is willing to open up to you and be honest. The more he talks and the more time he spends with you, the more he will trust.

Keep an eye on how much you two talk. Also keep an eye on the jealousy. Once he starts acting jealous, that’s a sign he sees you as someone very special to him and also means he may be falling for you.

On the other hand, he may be jealous later on where he shouldn’t be. If he trusts you then he shouldn’t worry about other men. However, he will worry about them regardless because that’s who he is.

He will always be suspicious of other men around you no matter how much you stress to him they are only your friend. He will always worry that they will cross the line and want to be more.

He will probably want to know where you are, what time you will return, and will ask you to call or text when you arrive safely to your destination or home. These are all traits the Capricorn man doesn’t want you to know but you’ll see them anyway because he’s not good at hiding any of these things.

    1. Hi Avril!

      It sounds like when he says he loves someone, it’s to family or friends he cares deeply for. He isn’t going to say it to you until he knows for sure and truly feels it. He doesn’t want to say something he cannot take back and he doesn’t want to hurt you or lie to you either. I think you need to have a bit of patience. When he’s ready to tell you he loves you, he will do it. Don’t let any man control you though sweetheart. Don’t be a door mat. Be yourself and be open to love. If he cannot give you what you want then you can move on and find someone else who will give you all you want.

  2. Hi Anna, you are phenomenal! So accurate in your observations about the capris. I love your wise comments to your readers. I am Pisces and since November I have been gradually failing in love with a Capri who is 10 years younger than me. He is in early 30s. We work together but in different departments. I was kind of surprised with my own feelings about him. I am in the process of divorce and he is aware of that. He was the one who first displayed his attraction towards me by looking at even though he is very shy and reserved. Initially, I did not really noticed him and then I thought his shyness and attraction were cute. I liked the way he looked at me and how nervous he got when I was around. All of these made start paying more attention and developing feelings for him. Slowly I was able to make him feel comfortable without invading his space. Today we talk more, we laugh, and I noticed he has feelings for me. Although he hides his feelings through his reserved demeanor, his eyes and his body language speak for his cold heart. I am older, independent, I have my small business aside from our work, I am a goal driven, ambitious, funny, compassionate, and attractive (I look younger). However, he never asks me to go out. I noticed a girl driving his car once and I wasn’t sure if he has a girlfriend. He asks a lot questions about my life, my business, and seems very curious about the people I talk to. It looks like he is taking his time to get to know me. However, I would like to be realistic about this. Capricorns are super logical and they see love as an investment for a long term. He was in long term relationship with a very controlling girlfriend. Is it possible that this Capri may be having some internal conflicts about his feelings and his future with me? Could he be in love and being afraid of losing control since I am older and more accomplished? Is it possible that he may have a girlfriend who gives him stability but he could be in love with me? Could be that the fact that we work in the same place may make him feel like intimidated as it could generate gossip and affect our reputation? Tell me your thoughts Anna. Thank you

    1. Hi Erika!

      It’s definitely possible that your Capricorn guy has internal conflict. It’s not an uncommon occurrence with those guys. They over analyze and over think everything in the world. They take on the world because they think they have a duty to. I think with all your questions, you really should try reading my book “Capricorn Man Secrets” as it would help you get to the bottom of the things you’re curious about. I also think that you need more time with him to work the “kinks” out between you two. He sounds insecure and needs to feel more secure with you before he totally lets his guard down. There is definitely a chance here darling!
