Are you really hurt and are considering giving your Capricorn man the silent treatment? Here's why ignoring a Capricorn man won't help your relationship.

Are you hurt or angry with your Capricorn man and considering giving him the silent treatment? Does ignoring a Capricorn man work?

A Capricorn man is not like other men. He rarely enjoys playing games in the relationship. Maybe he hasn’t been forthcoming with you, and you want to see if ignoring him will make him chase you…

The Capricorn man is independent and does not need anyone to complete him. He knows he’s whole as he is and doesn’t have to work at it. As such, he can sometimes come across as demanding to a potential partner. He has high expectations and wants his partner to carry herself with grace and be just as motivated as he is.

He will absolutely want to have time to himself when he can to complete tasks or do some private thinking. This means he will want a partner who can understand this and will also live the same way.

Here’s what happens when you ignore a Capricorn man:

Does Ignoring A Capricorn Man Work?

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 makes him frustrated and upset.

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

If you choose to ignore him for acting this way, please note that Capricorn hates being ignored. Here’s how to to smooth things over with your capricorn man after an argument <<

If you have some misunderstandings with your Capricorn man, you might want to talk to him because this is what happens when you ignore a Capricorn man:

7 Reasons Why Ignoring A Capricorn Man Is A Mistake

When you ignore a Capricorn man, you need to consider the consequences. Whenever one of my clients gets involved with a Capricorn man, I feel the need to give her a big warning sign.

This is not an easy man to be with; he is very complicated, and there is a definite dark side to a Capricorn man you need to be aware of, especially when you choose to ignore him.

1. Your Silent Treatment Will Hurt Him

A Capricorn man loves attention and especially expects it from his partner, whom he loves or cares for. If you get upset with him, the best thing to do is be honest with him. Giving him the silent treatment will really hurt him and will be used as a strike against you.

In the event that he did something that hurt you, you may feel tempted to get some revenge by purposefully hurting him. Yes, ignoring him will accomplish that goal, but to what end?

Do you want to work it out with him, or do you want to cause more issues that will pile up and cause the end of your love? Be very careful what you feel in the heat of the moment.

Going somewhere to calm down away from him may be alright if it’s short-term, but if you’re planning on being ice cold to him, you may want to think again. If this is your normal “go-to” behavior, perhaps you should look at changing it.

2. He Is Not Into Mind Games

Keep in mind that the Capricorn man has a moral code he lives by and if you wish to play head games with him by giving him the silent treatment, he will absolutely see you as someone he cannot rely on.

This would mean that he may consider dropping you like a hot cake. It may be the first time you do it or it may be the 2nd or 3rd time. He will do it though, I promise you. He will only put up with so much.

Again, if he’s hurt you or made you angry, you need to calm yourself down and then talk to him rationally and logically. This way you build respect and trust between the two of you.

Unless you’re ready to let him go or to be dumped then I highly advise you not to play the silent treatment game with your Capricorn man. He takes it very seriously and will keep a mental note of it.

3. Ignoring A Capricorn Man Makes You Unreliable

The Capricorn man wants a partner that he can absolutely depend on. If you’re the type that cannot handle the heat, so you ice him out instead, you will show that he cannot trust or rely on you.

This adds to the pile of “she’s out the door” in his head. There are so many other things that I can add to this pile, but what you need to keep in mind is that Capricorn men do not like to be ignored.

It’s literally the worst thing you can do to them. It doesn’t matter how upset you are with him; you need to remember that he doesn’t respond well to not getting your attention.

It’s actually more beneficial for you to get angry and let him have it than it is to not talk to him. He considers silence to be his worst enemy. He feels rejected and very pained when someone stops talking to him.

The worst is when he doesn’t even really know why you’re upset in the first place and you’re ignoring him. Don’t do this to him unless you are ready to accept the consequences of your actions.

He may have done something that really got under your skin, and you want to punish him for it, but in all honesty, talk about it. Get it off your chest and let him know what he did wrong.

If you want to find alternatives to ignoring a Capricorn man that can help you achieve the outcome you’re looking for without risking a relationship, I strongly suggest getting my Capricorn Man Love Language guide.

It will help you speak the same love language as him and make your bond so much stronger.

4. Lack Of Communication

This should be standard for ALL relationships. If it’s not there, the relationship will fall apart if it even gets started. That being said, if you cannot communicate with your Capricorn, you need to look at your own insecurity or temper.

Even if your Capricorn did something genuinely frustrating or hurtful, lashing out with silence isn’t the right way to handle it. It may be something you’re used to but he isn’t and he won’t respond well to it.

He isn’t the type that will come running or chase after you if you ignore him. In fact, he’ll chalk it up to you not really wanting to be with him and he’ll perhaps start icing you out if he doesn’t just up and break it off.

I cannot express this enough, do not EVER ignore a Capricorn man. It’s better you be explosive and get out your feelings than to bottle it up and keep silent. He’ll think you’re lying to him, keeping something from him, or that you’re up to something.

5. He Will Consider You Childish

Giving the silent treatment seems a bit childish in the mind of a Capricorn man. He wants a woman, not a girl. That being said, you’ll find that you are able to build respect with the Capricorn guy by talking to him.

If you’re hurt or angry, tell him why and what caused it. Be totally 100% honest. Tell him “when you did this, it made me feel awful”. I’m not saying that you should lay all blame on him but think about both sides of the coin.

Know that your Capricorn man may be very much oblivious as to why you’re even upset which then hurts his feelings that you won’t talk to him. He’ll think the trust really isn’t there and it may make him want out.

The best thing you can do is respect him by respecting yourself. If he does something uncalled for, let him know! How can he ever remedy something if he doesn’t know what went wrong?

Let him know what happened and how you feel about it. Then there is less of a chance of him doing it again and your communication opens up better. Don’t EVER ignore your Capricorn man and expect to win him or keep him.

6. He Can Start Ignoring You Back

Your Capricorn could play his own game and start ignoring you too, and a Capricorn man’s silent treatment is not easy to deal with. He is simply doing the same to you to make you feel like he is feeling.

Watch out ladies, this could backfire! He may be overwhelmed by your behavior and may be looking for ways to punish you.

He simply doesn’t understand why you would be ignoring him or why you would feel upset about something. It doesn’t make sense to him on an intellectual level. This is something you need to accept about him.

He is capable of pulling himself back out of the muck, but he has to find a more positive frame of mind if he ever wants to heal from all the hurt that you caused by ignoring a Capricorn man.

Here’s what to do when a Capricorn man goes silent <<

7. He May Get Annoyed By You

When he is annoyed with you for ignoring him, he may start to become less communicative and express his frustration through sarcasm and irony.

He can express less tolerance for you because he may have a shorter fuse or is quick to anger. This is what may happen if you start pulling the brakes and become intentionally distant.

He may not take it well, and in fact, this could bounce back to you and you would regret even thinking about this tactic.

It can be a little unnerving if you’re not used to it at all, but it is better to be warned than to be surprised when you see that there is a negative side to Capricorn men that appears when he is being ignored by you.

Ignoring A Capricorn Man After A Breakup — Will He Come Back If You Ignore Him?

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.

If something happened between you two that wasn’t too big of a deal, he’ll like to get past it and be alright with you.

All of this depends on how bad the breakup was, of course. You can’t force him to do anything. If he felt that the relationship wasn’t even close to what he really wanted, that could also be a problem.

You won’t know, though, unless you become his friend again and establish some clear lines of communication. Doing that will make it so that you two can open up to each other over time.

Friendship is extremely important in the beginning of a relationship with a Capricorn man, just as it is throughout and even after. Be mindful of that fact. Learning all you can is important.

Ignoring a Capricorn man after a breakup won’t get you the desired results. It is not a wise decision. Talk to him; tell him how you feel; tell him what went wrong, why you are hurt, or even that you like him.

He would prefer you tell him that you’re into him and want to get to know him better rather than only texting him a little and then leaving him hanging.

What Happens When You Block A Capricorn Man?

This is not a good idea! Blocking a Capricorn man can lead to different outcomes and it all depends on circumstances that surround the situation why you blocked him in the first place.

Capricorn man is logical and practical. This is the language he gets. He values stability in relationships, so if block him on social media, he may translate your behavior as a sign of disrespect and rejection and may withdraw for feeling hurt, angry or confused. 

He may feel attacked by you. Conversation is always the best solution. The truth is all you really need to do is tell Capricorn man how you feel about him.

Telling the man you love how you feel, what he means to you and what you’d like to have with him is how you can win a Capricorn man back into your world, so whatever you do, don’t block him!

Here’s how to show a Capricorn man that you really love him <<

Should I Ignore A Capricorn Man To Get His Attention?

This is never a good option because, above all, Capricorn values honesty and direct approach. He will rather be attracted to someone who is assertive and confident.

If you ignore a Capricorn man to get his attention, he may think that you are not interested in him, or that you are playing games he is not willing to participate in. He may even consider your behavior to be immature, inappropriate or manipulative. 

Instead of ignoring him, try engaging him in meaningful and respectful communication. Express your genuine interest in his feelings and experiences. Don’t rely on manipulative tactics because those will not get you where you want to go. Show him respect and appreciation and you will build a strong and lasting connection with him.

What To Do When A Capricorn Man Ignores You

If a Capricorn man is giving you the silent treatment and going to cool off isn’t a big deal, typically because he will reflect on his thoughts and feelings and come back to talk about things. Don’t ever follow him or try to make him stay when you’re arguing. Let him go because he will come back.

Space will do you both good and give you time to think about your relationship, but the chances are very good that the space will make him realize how much he misses you.

Do not chase your Capricorn man and he will appreciate your patience hugely. When the time comes, he will slowly start warming up. Remember with his level of stubbornness, this is one person that will push back very hard if he feels in any way pressured. 

In fact ladies, I’ve already covered a topic when a Capricorn man ignores you and I encourage you to read it.

Be a real woman and talk to him. He’ll think you’re an immature little girl if you aren’t able to talk to him. He’s one that would rather get it all out on the table and try to find a solution rather than the silent route.

If You Listen To Dating Coaches, You Can Lose Your Capricorn Man Forever

Over the years, I’ve had a lot of my clients send me advice they got from dating coaches. They wanted to know if it would work with their Capricorn man.

And I literally wanted to scream with frustration.


Because most dating advice definitely will NOT work if you use it with a Capricorn.

You see, Capricorn men are VERY different from men of other signs. And if you use standard dating advice with a Sag, it can backfire.

He might disappear forever and you’ll never hear from him again.

I don’t want that to happen to you. Especially when it is SO easy to draw him to you and get him to connect deeply with your heart.

You just need to know the specific phrases to tell him…

So he’ll NEVER want to lose you. He’ll be wrapped around your finger… And it won’t take him long to put a ring on that finger either.

These phrases are the EXACT thing you need to turn everything around with him.

So… for heaven’s sake… DON’T listen to normal dating coaches! They give out the same advice for ALL men… which is absolutely insane.

Because your wonderful Capricorn is NOT like other men… at ALL.

  1. No,if they can give out the silent treatment time and time again… Even when I have said I don’t like it….then they can deal with being iced out!

    1. Hi Virgo!

      Actually, Capricorn men don’t play well with getting what they dish out. They don’t do well with head games either. If you give one a silent treatment, he’s likely to just act like you never existed and will move on. When you love a Capricorn man, that may be very risky business trying to pay him back for what he may have done to you. If you don’t mind losing him then by all means, do what you think is best but please be careful.

  2. What if I got him redhanded in a flirting spree and now both of us are being silent.. am a Aries ♈️

    1. Hi Preethi!

      Yikes. It sounds like he’s not too serious if he’s on a flirting spree. If he was fully committed to you then he wouldn’t be doing this. You aren’t getting anywhere by being silent. As an Aries, I can see why you’re angry. You need to speak up and tell him the truth about how you feel about it and what you want. He then will have to decide if he can commit to you 100% or not. You should check out my book “Capricorn Man Secrets” for more information.

  3. This is definitely true. As a Capricorn male, I know if I’m ignored it drives me crazy even if it is innocent. I’m aware that this is probably not the best reaction to have, but it’s always been there for me since I can remember. I think i can maybe forgive it once, but after that, it’s likely over, even if I didn’t want it to be. It’s not even about getting revenge against a person who would “dare ignore me” or this kind of idea. It’s really just like said here that the person become unreliable to me and the love spell is damaged and greatly weakened. it’s like in a way they died in my eyes. Not to say that there is no anger at all about it underneath. I do try to never give the silent treatment to someone even though sometimes I want to – or to “ghost”. I try not to do it because I know it can be painful and also it just sets me up for bad feelings and holding on to bad feelings is the road to bad mental and physical health or so I’ve read. So it’s sort of a self sabotage in a way. Open communication is the best way. It’s healthier all the way around. It’s not always easy to do for sure. Especially in the heat of the moment.

    Of course, if you don’t care about the relationship and just want revenge with full out pride because, I mean, who is he? He thinks he special? If he can be a jerk so can I and he will pay. Then for sure, ignore away. It will be very effective. Forever.

    1. Hi Tom!

      Thank you for sharing. I absolutely love when the men chime in a validate the things I’ve learned from clients and through my astrology studies. That is also what I know… communication is HUGE. It’s a make or break of any relationship. You’re right about self sabotage and also how one behaves if they don’t care about welfare of the relationship. Once again, thank you for sharing your input being a Capricorn man. I really appreciate it!

  4. I gave him silent treatment after he hung up on me, he went to tell my friend that he doesn’t want the relationship

    1. Hi Crystal!

      Oops yes. They really don’t like the silent treatment at all. They think it’s not conducive to a healthy relation ship and that you don’t care enough about him. I’m not surprised he told your friend what he did. He know that your friend would go back and tell you so he wouldn’t have to talk to you personally. I’m sorry to hear that. Perhaps before you get involved with another Capricorn man, you should check out my book.

  5. A Capricorn guy I worked with for three years was flirting with me and I didn’t know it. I wasn’t looking. Then he said I love you in sign language which I could not ignore. I asked him out for coffee because he’s moving across the country. We talked over coffee for 3 hours but had to leave. He kept staring at me and it was like an interview. Iam guilty as a virgo because I do the same thing. We exchanged a few text but he was busy moving. He said he had a good time and hoped to see me before he left. The last sighting he completed ignored me. No text or nothing since. What does that mean?

    1. Hi Debra!

      It could be as simple as trying to make you work for it since he tried before and you didn’t pay any attention until he did the sign language. I think he felt you were brushing him off or not interested. Going out with you was fun but then he thought you probably wouldn’t want to be with him OR he is testing you to see what you do next. I’d go for it if you like him. Reach out to him. If you would like to know more about Capricorn men, please check out my book on Capricorn Man Secrets.

  6. I had always thought about giving the silent treatment back but I can never do so. He did it to me, a few times but as soon as he messages or calls me, I’ll wait for about 10 min before replying to his messages and or wait for a few seconds before picking up his call. I got myself mixed in with a married man. He’s a Capricorn! But why does Capricorn cheat, or why do they decide to open up? If they’re unhappy in their marriage, why stay and not move on? He tells me he likes me A LOT, he communicates all the time and always be checking in on me, but I feel GUILTY as this is not me. Never have I ever done this before too. I feel a strong connection but I’m not sure where is this exactly going. He tells me his marriage is okay, but then also tells me he wants to be in this relationship with me. If his marriage was really fine, would he still be talking to me otherwise? Or maybe I’m just someone he wants to mess around with he get stressed or whatever problems he’s going through?

  7. What if he gives you the silent treatment for weeks for no reason and then come back then do it again and I try to communicate with him to understand what has happened but he completely ignores me even me trying to communicate with me! Then I let him be and it’s been 2 weeks, I have no idea what I have done and he refuses to speak to me and it’s really hurting me

  8. My Capricorn man is a wanderful man we have talked for 5 years and have never met and I want to meet him so bad and he said he love you very much and he wants to spend the rest of his life with me but he keeps putting it off will I ever get to meet him and have a relationship with him please tell me something

    1. Dear Joyce,

      Men fall in love with what they see, women fall in love with what they hear.
      If he needs validation and attention through your conversations and text messages, please note that if he doesn’t want to set up to meet you in person, most likely he wouldn’t want to form close bonds and you should be aware of this. It just takes a long time without you meeting him, which is very suspicious. Be cautious. Sending Love!

  9. Capricorn man is strict, dominate, centered, over achiever, demi God,alpha male. Does not play games, means what he says, does not lie and don’t you dare try that on him.

    When he tells you he will fix you, he means it. You won’t like the consequences. Don’t think I won’t spank that attitude off you, he said. True to his word, I could not sit for 2 days, no mercy., ended with great love making.

    The ultimate male, when he loves he means it , be careful what you ask for, because he delivers. Know one will know you better and your every move. Good Luck
