How Do You Show A Capricorn Man You Love Him Without Saying It?

Capricorn men take their relationships very seriously. He wouldn’t be dating you if he didn’t think you had long-term potential, but how do you make a Capricorn man feel loved? He’s not looking for a relationship that’s going to blow over quickly; he’s looking for the real deal.

It’s really important that you show him that you’re trustworthy and not see him as an option or a means to an end. One thing he certainly won’t tolerate is adultery, so keep your friendly flirting with other guys to an absolute minimum.

You don’t want to give him any cause for suspicion, because the truth is, he’s rather afraid of getting his feelings hurt. That is why it takes a lot for him to want to commit to a woman, because he really needs to be sure.

How To Make A Capricorn Man Feel Loved (7 Sweet Ways)

1. Be The Best Version Of Yourself

One thing a Capricorn man really loves is status and the feeling of achievement. This is why he works so hard, because he wants to live an aspirational life, one that other people look up to and want for themselves. 

You’ll never see a Capricorn man with a woman who doesn’t take care of herself. He’s always dating someone who is dressed to the nines and takes a great deal of pride in her appearance. 

So, if you want your Capricorn guy to feel really special, then make sure you hit the gym and get your hair and nails done often. For this guy outward appearances are everything, so when you put in effort into the way you look, he sees it as a reflection of the way you feel about him. 

Plus, being healthy and looking good won’t hurt you in any way, it will only boost your confidence and make you feel really amazing about yourself. Which will make your Capricorn man even more attracted to you in the first place. So, this is really a win-win situation!

2. Keep Things Professional

A Capricorn man sees life as one big business transaction. He likes things neat, tidy, and very clear. He keeps things professional, even in his romantic relationships. So, he expects you to act accordingly and keep drama to a minimum, especially when you’re in public.

Embarrassment is a big turn off for a Capricorn man. If you’re in a relationship with a Capricorn and want to show him you care, you should never air your dirty laundry in public or pick a fight with him when there are others around you.

He wants to present the perfect image to the world; therefore, he can’t have you make a scene by having any emotional outbursts. This is a sure way for a Capricorn man to go all distant and detached…

If you want to make a Capricorn man feel loved and appreciated, you would do well by approaching any negative feelings you may have in a rational manner. I know, I know, this doesn’t really make sense, but this is the only way a Capricorn man knows how to listen and come up with a solution.

He understands the world and even his emotions in practical terms, so it’s best for you to respect his need for privacy by trying your best to uphold his squeaky-clean image.

3. Give Him A Good Time In The Bedroom

Capricorn men are incredibly kinky, probably some of the most adventurous men in the bedroom. I know it might come as a surprise, seeing how emotionally reserved and distant he can be. But, wow, this man likes to get down and dirty between the sheets!

Because he’s so stern and serious in his day-to-day life, he needs a release and finds the best way to get this is through sex. This is where he can be really free and let all of his inhibitions go. So, it would be best for him to have a lady who is quite adventurous and isn’t shy in the bedroom.

You can make your Capricorn man feel loved by being open to exploring your wilder side and indulging in his darker side, which definitely involves a few kinks and taboos. Ask him what his fantasies are and try to reenact them as best as possible.

Of course, don’t do anything that feels too much for you or anything you don’t feel ready for, because it is important to know and understand your own limits. But if there is a sexual act you feel curious about, you could mention it to him and see what his reaction is.

He’ll be very excited to know that you’re willing to be open and try something new. This is a sure way for your Cap guy to feel very turned on! Here’s more on how to please a Capricorn man in bed.

4. Be Patient With Him

A Capricorn man refused to be pushed or forced into anything. He has his own value of time, and he only does things when he feels ready, and one of those things is opening up emotionally.

Emotional intelligence is just not his strong suit; he just doesn’t get that being in a relationship means talking about feelings and showing a more nurturing side of himself. Instead, he’s more likely to just go very cold when you talk about your emotions.

But just give him time to open up and warm up to being more open. Because the truth is, a Capricorn man is terrified of getting hurt, and that’s why he always has his guard up. He might also question his lovability and if he’s good enough to be in a loving relationship.

He just needs time and a lot of your patience. If you can show him that you’re willing to wait and give him the grace to slowly warm up and become more comfortable with being vulnerable, then he’ll definitely feel a lot more loved and supported than if you were to force him into something he might not be ready for.

If you struggle with finding the right words to make your Capricorn man feel special, I strongly suggest getting my Forever Love With A Capricorn Man. It will help you speak to his core, and make your bond so much stronger.

5. Support His Career

Capricorns thrive in the context of structure and discipline. They’re ruled by Saturn, the planet of hard work and boundaries. They’re the nose-to-the-grindstone, hardworking husband figures that many women believe are the ideal men.

In a workplace, the Capricorn typically thrives because of clear expectations and the ability to restrain themselves against unacceptable behavior. Authority figures also tend to take a shine to Capricorns, which further endears them to a work environment.

Showing a Capricorn that you care about his job and all that he does to keep a roof over your head and the family’s head (if you have one together). Ask him about how his day went, and be understanding of the days that he volunteers to stay late at the office. His desire for work, tempered by your support for it, will make him feel valued and appreciated.

6. Be Understanding Of His Traditional Approach

Capricorns, being ruled by tradition-loving Saturn, have a deep respect for their heritage. They know that without the groundwork that our ancestors laid for us, we would not be here.

This sort of respect for the past is something that seems to be becoming rarer these days. A respect for older generations is just not as common. 

If you are open-minded to the past figures and traditions that created the Capricorn then you will be making him feel unconditionally loved by respecting his roots.

To show him that you want to know more about where he came from, you could buy him an ancestry tracing kit, ask that he tell you more about his grandparents, or heck, ask him to take you down to meet the family! 

This is going to make his heart melt, since these things are so deeply personal and important to him. And having a solid enough foundation in what he is used to may actually empower him enough to try new things with you. 

7. Respect His Limits

A Capricorn is not what you’d call “easygoing” all the time. He is a rather uptight member of the zodiac. He has his boundaries and isn’t afraid of saying “no” when the time comes.

This is a quality that deserves respect. Often, people are expected to readily bend to the will of others—not your Capricorn guy! He knows where he draws the line.

When he tells you ‘no,’ it is important to find it in yourself to respect that as much as possible, unless the situation is extenuating. He needs to be able to feel in control of his destiny by being able to freely deny the will of others being imposed upon him.

He will feel that this is thoughtful of you, and he will begin to feel safe when he realizes that he doesn’t need to feel pressured to do what he doesn’t want to do. Hey, even sturdy Capricorns are subject to peer pressure!

This is probably the number one way to endear yourself to the Capricorn. He enjoys the feeling of being in control and honoring, which will have him making his heart eyes move in your direction really quickly!

6 More Tips On How To Show A Capricorn Man You Love Him

8. Understand His Ways Of Showing Affection

Capricorns are, in general, known as “cold” people. Warmth and affection are not languages they speak naturally.

He’s a grounded Earth sign who represents a masculine figure. So as a result, the type of affection a Capricorn gives can be prickly. Some may not even pick up on the fact that he was attempting to be friendly!

It’s important to learn the signs that he is reaching out and take him up on them. This shows him that his efforts to show his love are being well received. He’ll take more of that action when he senses that you understand that he is trying to be loving.

He’ll show you love by buying you something you mentioned you needed or by finding ways to make the relationship more stable, perhaps by suggesting you buy a home together or maybe just by setting up a joint bank account.

Any sign that he wants to invest in the relationship is another way of him saying he loves you. And it’s honestly pretty sweet when you think of it like that!

9. Let Him Take The Lead (Sometimes)

A Capricorn is a “boss” figure. He likes to be in charge as much as possible. It isn’t that he feels others are incapable; he just knows that he is more capable.

It’s not an easy thing for some signs to sit back and let someone else take control, whereas other signs welcome this, since it means they can spend their time doing the things they actually care about rather than pretending to care about leading.

With a Capricorn man, he feels most himself when he is giving directions and being a taskmaster. It’s an unpopular job, but someone has to do it, and a Capricorn is generally more than willing to take control.

Letting him lead as much as you are comfortable with is going to make the Capricorn feel heard and seen. They’ll relish being the ones to lead the team in the right direction (even if it’s just a team of two).

I’ll add here that it is never okay to give all of your power away to anyone! Just release control in areas of life you are comfortable in so that the Capricorn man has room to thrive.

10. Be Intuitive And Wait For The Right Moment

By now, you may already see that your man has thick, seemingly impenetrable armor that he uses to protect himself from harm. It takes patience to melt it away. He’s more scared than you may think, and he doesn’t find it easy to be vulnerable.

Watch for that special opening to say you love him. These moments are fleeting in the beginning, but they pop up more and more as you mature together.

Use your intuition and study him closely for cracks in that armor. Maybe it’s when he pulls you close and kisses you on your forehead that you say it quietly.

11. Be Gentle And Kind

Capricorn men are not fire signs! Their grounded, careful nature in relationships means they prefer and appreciate subtlety, calmness, and tenderness when it comes to the dance of love.

Keeping things gentle goes a long way with a Capricorn man. It helps to open his heart up and doesn’t make him feel assaulted or like you’re pressuring him into anything.

When you say “I love you,” let it be with the most honeyed voice and tone you can manage, in a special, quiet moment spent intimately together.

Be gentle and non-aggressive. Don’t demand an immediate response. In other words, be your most feminine self. It will turn his legs to rubber!

12. Cuddle With Him

Last but not least is the option of taking the plunge when you’re snuggled up in bed together, after you’ve gotten serious. You can combine everything and let him know tenderly once you know his armor is melted (maybe after that lavish date?).

Make it just between the two of you. You don’t need to shout it from the rooftops for this man to get it. And he’s so much more likely to respond well when you’re in that space of deep intimacy, where he feels safe and secure enough to open up to you.

Telling any man you love him is scary, but trust your intuition, ladies. We seldom feel compelled to tell someone we love them if we don’t sense that they love us back.

And even if laying it all out there for your Capricorn man feels like a risk, it can be a very rewarding risk—one that will reap plenty of great returns in the future. The longer you are with this guy, the safer he feels and the more devoted he can be.

Don’t give up! Trust that his armor will melt away, and give it time! If he withdraws for a moment, stay open. Teach him how to be vulnerable with you. Once he sees that you’re there to stay, he’s all in.

Sweet Things To Say To A Capricorn Man To Make Him Feel Loved

Stroking his inner fire is crucial to your future with him, and your words are among your best tools to do it!

Loving a Capricorn man and telling him how hot or sexy he is, is a good place to start. It helps to touch him while saying these things. Look him in the eyes and touch his arm or his thigh, or kiss him on the neck.

A little light possessiveness also does wonders—try “my sexy guy.” It will make him feel important and special to you.

Here is how to tell a Capricorn man you love him. Try some of these phrases:

  • You are the light of my life.
  • Your love makes me feel alive and beautiful.
  • I feel so safe and protected in your arms.
  • You are the one for me.
  • I want to spend forever with you.
  • You are so amazing and wonderful.
  • You are always on my mind, even when we’re apart.
  • I will always remember how we met and fell in love.
  • You are the most important person in my life.
  • Thank you for everything you do for me. I appreciate you.
  • I love you more and more every single day.

Even if they seem overly simple or even a little cheesy to you, give them a shot! A Capricorn man loves to hear words like these from his love.

When he feels good and knows how much you appreciate him in your world, he’ll then give you more to feel good about. This includes romancing you and treating you like his queen again.

The 14 Words That Give Instant Youth To Your Relationship With A Capricorn Man…

Have you ever heard of a 14-word elixir that can rejuvenate relationships with a Capricorn man and grant eternal love?

Just as communication is the most important aspect of a relationship, one of the most important aspects of communication is knowing how to overcome disagreements and misunderstandings.

I knew many women who tragically failed with Capricorn guys just because they underestimated the importance of talks.

Some didn’t talk with them enough and some talked too much… Others talked just enough, but they said a few wrong things here and there which made their lovers sulk and brood.

Let me tell you, you never want to leave a Capricorn guy sulk because of something that you said.

It’s best to resolve any such conflict ASAP because his negativity could expand ad infinitum until one day he just snaps and decides that you’re not the one for him and that it’s all over.

The worst part is that 9 out of 10 times with a Capricorn, women are not even aware that they’ve said something wrong… or missed saying something that he expected them to say.

He doesn’t give off any signals when he’s hurt or disappointed. Instead, he usually just becomes quiet… but women never notice it. Even if they do, they never realize what to do in time.

That’s why whenever a disagreement occurs, it’s best to diffuse it with 14 words that could save your relationship.

  1. I’m a Gemini Iv been dating my Capricorn man since March just found he’s planning out wedding already he’s only just told me is thus normal behaviour

    1. Hi Kathleen!

      I would say no, this isn’t normal behavior for a Capricorn man. I would ask him to slow it down a little because you’re not ready for that step quite yet. I’m assuming that he’s marrying you or wants to? That’s good but he needs to wait a bit. Learn more about this man by reading my books on Capricorn Man Secrets.

  2. I met my cap man in 2014, wasn’t my type. I always dated “bad boy” type of men, he is a cowboy, he was so touchy feely acted in love with me real soon. I love kissing and holding hands and hugging, I love all affection but I think I was scared to fall in love so soon since that was my pattern. Then he just dropped me to be with someone else that had been in his life. I had told him to never call me again. I ended up going back to my alcoholic boyfriend. After 1 year we connected again, I let my wall down a little more than before, posted and tagged him a picture of both of us on Facebook, he got a post on his wall that said “thank you thank you thank you” with all hearts, I asked him about it, he avoided me then I just again, told him to never ever call me, text me or anything, to just leave me alone and blocked him. Another year went by, we connected again and have been together a year and a half now. We pinky promised we would never bring up the past and move forward. I’ve met his mom, sister and nieces who he always spoke about, met his friends and best friend. Met most of his relatives. He introduced me to his uncle as his girlfriend so that made me feel so good. I’m in love now but he really doesn’t include me when he makes future plans. He’s a roper so his time is always practicing every day and that’s after working 8 to 12 hour days. Friday nights is our movie night which I love cuz we spend one on one time together. There are times when I feel our relationship is so solid and I’m feeling good and strong. I’m use to jumping from one long relationship to another and moving in together. We don’t live together, I don’t know if he wants to marry me, I want to be married. I’m 54 and so is he. I’ve told him I love him and he’s told me he loves me too. He won’t initiate it. I asked him if he was in love with me, he responded by saying “don’t force me to answer those questions”. . . . that really hurt my heart. I felt like if someone loves or is in love, it wouldn’t be so hard to say. He calls me everyday, all day long till he is already laying in bed to say goodnight. But there will be times when he says, “I’m going to ride, I’ll call you later” that is after a long day at work, so four hours pass by and I’m dying inside because I’m thinking he’s with another girl. My anxiety levels are going crazy and my pit of my stomach hurts. So I call him, he doesn’t answer so again I think the worse and panic but I won’t call again. I’m really never the initiater when it comes to calling. He ended up calling telling me he just got out of the shower, I told him I was worried. I think he already knows me well because he just said uh huh. He explained how it just got so late and his brother kept talking he really didn’t realize how late it was. I hate feeling so insecure but after a year and a half I still feel so so insecure. This guy never gave up on me, he always tried to get me back and now we are together but I don’t feel like it’s a done deal. I still feel in limbo.

    1. Hi Yvonne D. Valdez,

      Alright so the issue is actually your insecurity causing you to worry more than you probably should. With any partner no matter what sign, you have to trust them and feel secured with them. If you cannot do that then you will always worry and cause your own self stress. I would highly suggest seeing a professional or try meditation that will help you get your thoughts under control so that you can be happy and open up better to love without suspicion. You need to feel the difference between intuition and anxiety driven thoughts so that you can make the right choices. You can do this! I have faith in you sweetheart. When you can absolutely trust your gut, you’ll make the right decisions and you will be happy.

  3. Leo here talking to a Capricorn for almost 3 months. We have had 2 dates (we live 6 hours away from each other). Your advice has helped. Patience is hard for me ? I have realized now why he doesn’t text so much so it doesn’t hurt my feelings when he doesn’t respond. We both appreciate our space and don’t speak everyday. I do wonder if he likes me as much as I like him but his actions and sometimes his words (communication is hard for him ??‍♀️) tell me he does. I lost my husband of 31 years about a year and a half ago and he has been patient and sweet and his glacial pace is allowing me to enjoy getting to know someone new. Who knows where it will go? Sometimes I think he sees a future and sometimes I think he doesn’t. I am just enjoying the ride for now.

    1. Hi Stacy!

      Ah yes, I can imagine that with you being Leo, you don’t like it that he’s not lavishing you in attention. Capricorn men are sort of hard asses. They also don’t like it when you try to fish for compliments either. They think this is weak character. I’m glad that you’re working on following my advice. Patience is the only way to go with him honestly. He may never give you all the attention you crave but if you love him and you can accept that he’s like this, you can possibly make it last. Go with the sweetness he DOES give you when he does it. Yes, enjoy the ride and see where it goes sweetheart. Thumbs up!

  4. I’ve been dating a separated Capricorn with taurus moon aquarius in Venus man for 6 months. He left his wife (they are foreign) a year ago. His country requires documentation of 2 years separation before divorce can begin.
    He didn’t tell me he was married until we actually had our first date. He treats me like no other man has treated me. He’s very busy working in oncology. We met up several times for dates then 2 months of FaceTime. The 3rd time we met up he was visibly nervous and couldn’tstop talking. He always initiates text except on weekends I usually initiate. His ex lives in another state. He often sends photos of what he’s doing where he’s at. Has hinted at future times like “well we can do that next summer when I’m done with school ” he’s never made me pay He always comes to me and picks me up. He was talking about starting a relationship with me and then randomly backed off when his roommate told him that he’d probably not get custody or partial custody of his kids and since then he’s been quiet where he used to text anytime he had a moment. He’s opened up about his childhood and parents his ex and kids. He cannot keep his hands off me when we are together and very much wants to get intimate.
    I’m confused about what he wants. He knows I didn’t and don’t want my time wasted.

    Do I let go or wait for it to be completely over with on his exs side? I’ve already started falling in love and have said multiple times “if this isn’t going anywhere we should stop ” and he says he knows and continues to talk to me.

    1. Hi L!

      He’s doing the typical thinking and over-thinking that Capricorn men do. If he felt that he might lose custody of his children then yes, this would cause upset and make him re-evaluate whether it’s possible for him to move on with you and still have some custody as well. I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be able to quite honestly but that seed that was planted makes him worry now. I wouldn’t think too much into it yourself though. Keep being yourself and doing what you normally would do. He’s still in there with you and so that’s where you should focus. Know he’s going through something and he has to deal with that. Stay patient and sweet!

  5. Hi, Anna. Another Anna here. I am an Aquarius and I have known Mr. Capricorn “not my boyfriend” for two years. He was an acquaintance of my late husband.
    He told me a few months after my husband passed that he felt I might be interested in something more, and called a hard stop. He has had a brief & bad marriage in the past and basically, I was his friend’s widow.
    So…it is 2 years later (past the rebound point) and we text almost every day. We get together every week or two at his house for dinner (which he sometimes makes) & movie. We take day trips. We share what is happening in our lives. We hug. And that is where we are. I want more & I think he does too, but if I even ask for a kiss on the cheek I’m afraid I’ll freak him out. Fyi, I am 60 and doing well on my own.

    1. Hi Anna Johnson!

      Alright so someone has to say something or you two will wait forever and a day for each other to initiate. That’s not going to work if you really do want something more with him. Ask him something like “have you given any thought to maybe us trying for more?”. That let’s him know you’d be up for it if that was something he wanted. Give it a try honey. I’m afraid if you don’t speak up, you won’t get all you desire with him. Don’t be afraid. Be bold!
