Capricorn men can be tough to read, especially when your love language isn’t the same as his. These 6 hints will help you figure out whether his behavior is indicating his affection for you!
We all have different ways of expressing love. Some of us may show our feelings through the giving of gifts, touch, service, or verbal affirmation, as outlined in the very famous “Love Languages” books by Gary Chapman.
The thing is, sometimes, it’s not all that easy to understand each other’s expressions of love.
What looks like love to someone else may not feel like love to us. We may be bending over backwards, telling our partner how glorious they are and getting nothing in return—or at least it feels that way. Meanwhile, our partner may be doing the dishes for us and running errands, hoping we recognize it as acts of love.
Hence, understanding the love language of each person is key. For some people, saying “I love you” is demonstrated by a ruffle of the hair, a listening ear, or a message to ask if you’re safe.
Society has made a bit of a mess when it comes to expectations in love and sex, but when we take it back to basics and learn how a partner shows love, then we can grow together.
What Does a Capricorn Man Look For in Love?
Capricorn men aren’t the easiest of guys, to be completely honest. They are ruled by the planet Saturn, which means that they can be rather cool and detached. They also tend to be very self-protective and even defensive, and they may have trouble being vulnerable.
This, of course, influences how they display and give love.
For the typical Capricorn man, showing love is not always easy. He may have been hurt before and have his defenses up. But Capricorns are incredibly trustworthy and loyal and very steadfast partners once committed.
It’s important, before we look at how a Capricorn man shows love, to understand what these men look for in an ideal partner.
Number one on the Capricorn man’s list is Loyalty with a capital L!
Love equals loyalty for a Capricorn man, no matter how tough life gets. Whether it’s a trying work period, a loss, a crisis, or a life change, this man wants to know you have his back.
If you are the type that tends to sit on the fence or change your loyalties based on circumstances, you can be sure that this man is not going to stick around. Consider yourself warned!
Capricorn men like their women to be classy. This means being well put together and taking pride in your appearance. Capricorn men admire a woman who takes care of herself not only in looks but also in behavior.
Elegance is the sexiest thing in the world to a Capricorn man, and he will go out of his way to show you his love when he sees the regal way you carry yourself.
He doesn’t mind a rude word here and there, a dry sense of humor, or a bit of messiness when you’re at home in your safe space. But when out in the world, when his reputation is on the line, he loves to have an equal who is just as brilliant and classy as he is.
Capricorn men will display their love to a woman who is grounded and calm.
He’s not the type to put up with girls who act overly airheaded and live with their heads in the clouds! Ditzy, spaced-out types annoy him.
That said, Capricorn men are quite grounded themselves, so your Capricorn man can be the one to settle you—he’s practical and level-headed like that. However, making the effort to stay grounded and nonreactive goes a long way toward helping the Capricorn man trust that he can be open with you.
Capricorn men may be reserved on the outside, but they are very sensual and sexy under the surface!
They adore a woman who is equally as sensual and takes time out to touch him. They also love a woman who has a sense of taste, from luxurious fabrics to lovely home décor.
A woman who can cook and enjoy a good meal, at home or out, will also appeal to them, and someone who enjoys a full-bodied glass of wine. This is the kind of woman that a Capricorn man will show his love for!
Finally, a Capricorn man will bend over backwards for a woman who is ambitious and a go-getter. He doesn’t like to be one-upped, but he does enjoy a partner who is as keen as he is on building an empire.
Being such a career-driven type of guy means plenty of hours at the office and lots of focus on his profession. When he can share that with you, it can make the bond stronger.
However, if you’re not that type of girl, not to worry. He can get just as much from a lady who is willing to hold down the fort and make home a special place for him so he can focus on his own ambition. This may even help him open up more and show his tender side.
So, now that you know what a Capricorn man is looking for, let’s explore some secret ways he shows his love for you:
6 Secret Ways a Capricorn Man Expresses Love
Capricorn men don’t always find it easy to express love but if he’s doing any of these things, it’s a sure sign of love!
1. He Commits
At first, he may seem a bit of a playboy. He may even be known to break hearts.
However, if he is really into you, his biggest tell is commitment.
What does that look like? Exclusivity, of course! Then it’s only a matter of time before you get a ring.
2. He Takes Time Off Work for You
If your Capricorn man is spending more time out of the office to spend with you, you can be sure that he’s head over heels. For a Capricorn man, work is everything, so if he takes down time and makes it you time, that’s huge!
Even though you may not be getting the mushiness you crave, just the fact that he has put his phone down or waits to send that e-mail shows you he truly cares.
3. He Opens Up to You
These men are notoriously hard nuts to crack. They have a protective streak that can be downright frustrating!
Some Capricorns even take years to open up, but when they do, this is one of the ultimate “secret” ways that you can be sure he loves and trusts you.
If he cries in front of you, tells you about his past, or opens up about his current challenges, you are in his heart.
4. He Buys You Gifts
This is the love language of most Capricorn men. He will shower you with gifts, so if he’s not outright saying he loves you, rest assured that this is his way of showing it.
From the smallest trinket to a shopping spree, this man love to show you his care with his hard-earned money!
5. He Touches You
Being an earth sign, Capricorn is actually very sensual and physically oriented. However, he may be quite reserved and not prone to displays of affection in public.
However, over time, you’ll see him softening and putting his arm around you, giving you tender kisses here and there, and generally just being more physical with you.
When he’s touching you, remind yourself he loves you—because he really does!
6. He Shows You Off
The truth is, Capricorn men can be on the traditional side, and that often means old-school masculinity.
They love to show off their partners to their associates and friends. When he drags you to yet another work get-together, it’s because he is proud to have you at his side.
He wouldn’t show you off if he wasn’t infatuated—trust me on that one!
And those, dear reader, are the top six secret ways a Capricorn man shows his love for you. He might not be the type to send you romantic texts or spread rose petals on the bed, but at the end of the day, he’s worth it!
You’re getting someone who is incredibly loyal, true, and faithful—someone who will stick by your side come hell or high water. Someone who is proud to have you at his side.
Sure, he can be a bit cold and hard-headed at times, and sometimes, you’ll wonder if he loves you at all!
Think about my list from time to time if you need reminders. Print it out, stick it in your journal, and memorize it—it may be just the thing you need on a bad day!
Both of you should remember to always appreciate how the other does make an effort.
If your Capricorn is giving you any of these hints, he’s here to stay, and even in the mundane humdrum of life, he has your back. Maybe you can show him how to develop that emotional, empathic side that’s so important for balance.
