Ignoring a Capricorn Man – What Will It Do For Your Relationship?

Are you really hurt or angry with your Capricorn man and are considering giving him the silent treatment? You probably shouldn’t do that though. Here are the reasons why it won’t work out in your favor if you are ignoring a Capricorn man and giving him the cold shoulder.

Deeply Hurts Him

Capricorn man loves attention and especially expects it from his partner whom he loves or cares for. If you get upset with him; the thing to do is to 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 ending 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 this.

Games Played Will End It

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.

You’re 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 you 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 the 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, honestly, talk about it. Get it off your chest and let him know what he did wrong.

Communication is #1

ignoring a capricorn man

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.

Respect Earns Respect

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.

  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?
