I often get questions from my readers asking what to do when a Capricorn man goes silent and ignores you out of nowhere? The thing with these men is that they are extremely independent and free-spirited.
It is important that you don’t take his behavior personally, but it is also important to understand what you can do to avoid him treating you this way. It may take quite a bit of compromise for some of you to be with a Capricorn man.
You need to understand why he acts the way he does and what to do when he does this. He can be very independent, which isn’t always easy for women to handle, but if you know what to do, you’ll be golden.
Capricorn men are the pillars of strength and will often appear as though they have no feelings or have no sensitivity when, actually, they do. They hide it deep inside themselves and rarely let it out.
When he fully loves and trusts someone, this side of him will come out. He has his own ways of showing someone how he feels and what he wants for the future, but what happens when a Capricorn man goes silent?

Capricorn Man Ignoring Me — 4 Possible Reasons Why Do Capricorn Go Quiet
Capricorn men are truly amazing. These guys are special and will always follow the beat of their own drum. No one can possibly tell a Capricorn man what to do, least of all a woman.
He has to have the independence to do whatever he wants. He’s a rock for those who need someone steady to hang onto or talk to in times of crisis. He’s a cool cucumber that will absolutely have nuggets of truth to offer you so that you can solve your issues.
If you get yourself involved with a Capricorn man, you need to know exactly what you are getting yourself into. When a Capricorn man goes quiet, here are 4 possible reasons why he is demonstrating such behavior:
1. He Doesn’t Want To Hurt You
When a Capricorn man fully loves and trusts someone, this side of him will come out. He has his own ways of showing someone how he feels and what he wants in the future. It may not be the same as how others would respond.
I get a lot of ‘He is avoiding me’, ‘He is not talking to me’, ‘He is confusing me’ from my clients. Ladies, if he feels that a woman isn’t the right fit for him anymore, and yet he still cares for, he will avoid her and fade into the background so that she will get the hint. He is probably the guy who started the fashion of ghosting.
If a Capricorn man speaks up, he may very well burn the person with what he says, and if he cares about that person, he won’t want the hurt to be too treacherous. He will ignore her until he has the strength or until she breaks up with him. It is much easier to make her the bad guy.
2. You Have Been Dishonest With Him
A feeling of anger or hurt could be considered this. Those born under the sign of Capricorn are particularly adept at detecting other people’s energy. Lying or underhanded behavior will definitely be discovered by him.
It won’t be tolerated or put up with by him. You will definitely be shut out by him. In the event that you lied, you must do whatever it takes to apologize and prove you won’t do it again. In the event that you cheat on him, he won’t waste more time with you.
It would be better for him to move on and find someone else who would be loyal to him. The relationship will end, and he’ll move on to something new. You won’t be able to change this, so there is no point in trying. It won’t be accepted by him.

3. He Doesn’t Want Commitment
If a Capricorn man doesn’t contact you at all, he’s either questioning things or the relationship. It could also be that he’s figuring out that you’re not the one for him. When a Capricorn man ignores your text, you know there is an issue.
The worst-case scenario for why he is ignoring you is that he simply doesn’t want to be with you anymore and doesn’t know how to tell you.
If you have been dating for some time, but he does not want to be more, but you pressure him, he will start cutting you off and making himself scarce.
Calls and texts won’t be returned or initiated by him. You won’t be able to get him to respond at all because he will just give you the silent treatment. In the end, he skips out and moves on with his life. This is when you might think of a Capricorn man avoiding me.
Also, a Capricorn man might be scared to commit for fear of getting hurt, so if you try to suggest or push it, he’ll clam up and become silent. This man doesn’t do very well with relationship pressures. This is why he is always a bit of a bachelor.
4. His Independence Is Being Threatened
I cannot overstate this fact enough, but a Capricorn man needs his independence. This is a guy who cannot tolerate being caged in and this is often the way he feels in his relationships.
When you get a bit needy and want too much of his attention it can definitely freak a Capricorn man out. This is the last thing he wants, to be responsible for your joy and happiness.
This is a man who does what he wants when he wants it. He makes his own happiness his own responsibility, so he cannot understand why you cannot do the same. This is likely to have happened when a Capricorn goes silent.
When a Capricorn man notices that you are becoming a bit too dependent on him, he is likely to start ghosting you because he just cannot handle the pressure you are putting on him.
When A Capricorn Man Goes Silent — Here’s What To Do
It will very much depend on his reasons for giving you the silent treatment. You should pretty much be able to figure it out but if you can’t, you’ll have to flat out ask him to be honest with you. He should tell you the truth at that point.
If it’s a small thing and he’s willing to work through it then the silence will come to an end and the two of you can talk again. However, if you hurt him, made him angry, betrayed him, or pushed him for commitment, he may not be as forgiving.
It will take him a while to get over it, but that doesn’t mean he will want to remain with you. It won’t matter to him anymore and he’ll move on to his next relationship.
Be patient with him while you figure out what it is that has him hot and bothered. The most important thing is to focus on yourself for a while. Maybe you’ve been putting too much emphasis on this relationship anyway.
Give him some time and space to cool down and figure things out and take this as an opportunity to work on yourself and your own flaws that might be coming up in the relationship.
What To Do When A Capricorn Man Ignores You — 3 Best Ways To Respond
1. Focus On Yourself And Your Hobbies
I know it is excruciatingly painful when someone you care about ignores you. All you want to do is reach out and fix the problem and figure out what exactly you did or said to have things go wrong.
It is probably your gut reaction to want to contact him and talk about whatever happened between the two of you to cause the silence, but this can often put the nail in the coffin even deeper than before.
Your Capricorn man probably just needs space, and if you keep reaching out to him, he is going to start feeling really smothered and annoyed. The best course of action for you to take is to actually take a step back and purely focus on yourself.
I know it can be really difficult, and he is probably on your mind all of the time. But this is exactly why you need to focus on yourself. You always need to be the number one player in your life, your happiness is up to you, not some guy!
Think about all the things you love to do in your life and then focus on these things. Maybe it’s a sport, or creative activity or spending time with your friends. It doesn’t really matter what it is, as long as you are working on yourself you are probably distracted from thinking about him.
And this is key, the more you sit around moping at home hoping he will reach out, the worse you will feel because your mind is constantly on the situation and that can’t be fun at all. Really work on yourself, and put all the energy you would out into him, into you!
2. Start A New Fitness Routine
This ties in with the previous point, but you have no idea how effective this is to get your Capricorn man to go crazy. Capricorn guys are ALL about appearances, these guys really care about what others have to think about them.
And this most definitely influences the type of woman a Capricorn man finds attractive. For him, a woman who really takes care of herself by taking care of her diet and working out regularly is pretty important to him
He wants someone who takes a lot of pride in her appearance, and this is why it is such a good idea for you to really focus on your fitness when he ignores you. Number one, you will be distracted because of all the time you’re putting into the gym.
Number two, the feel-good endorphins will really get you going and help you not to get stuck in any yucky emotions that might come up because of him ignoring you, and finally number two he will definitely be blown away by your new and improved physical appearance.
It is good to remember that a Capricorn man really likes it when a woman takes care of herself and isn’t too needy and expectant of him in the relationship. So, looking after your fitness is really one way to combat him showing you the cold shoulder.
Not only will you look good, and feel good, but this will also help you to gain more confidence and help you to deal with the pain of him going quiet. This shows that your world doesn’t revolve around him and that you have hobbies outside of the relationship.
3. Don’t Be Desperate Or Needy
It is definitely not a good idea to do something desperate like begging him to come back. Your clingy behavior will drive him away since he won’t be able to understand it.
Don’t worry about whether the two of you will get along instead of focusing on the things you can change. It’s meant to be, if it does, if it doesn’t, it’s not. You need to be as chilled as possible.
There is really nothing more to it, and you cannot control how he feels about you. Remember, though, that your actions are under your control, so save your dignity and do not act in a desperate manner.
Capricorn Man Ignoring Me For No Reason — What Should You Do?
It can be really confusing when a Capricorn man is ignoring you for no apparent reason. Instead of getting discouraged when he goes quiet, take this as an opportunity to work on yourself so that his actions don’t affect your emotions too much.
It is important to remember that we can’t control how other people treat us, but we do have the power to choose how we will respond in these situations.
Always take the mature approach, and don’t let a man’s actions bring you down. You are worth so much more than that. So, keep your head held high and do the things that make you feel immense joy and satisfaction.
Whatever you do, don’t ignore him back, don’t act desperate and clingy. It is always a good idea to reach out to him and ask if there is something going on that he would like to talk about.

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 may have problems being vulnerable.
How Do You Know A Capricorn Man Is Done With You?
It can be SO painful to worry about how to make things work with a Capricorn man who won’t commit. In such cases he will not make time for you, he will not communicate with you, act protective or share his passion with you.
When a Capricorn man is done with you, it isn’t that he doesn’t love you and care about you, it is that he loves and cares for his independence more and if it feels like he is losing it. He will do whatever he can to preserve it, even if it means moving away from the relationship he has with you.
Do Capricorn Men Run Away From Their Feelings?
There is no sign who is more self-involved than a Capricorn. When they feel something they just do it without giving it a second thought. When a Capricorn man feels something for a woman, he will go for it but with a certain caution.
He is unlikely to run away from his feelings because he lets his feelings and gut guide him in everything he does. The thing that he is not so good with, is commitment if his independence is being threatened.
Capricorn men struggle to express their emotions and have a hard time opening up, but that doesn’t mean they are not willing to admit they have feelings.

What Does It Mean When A Capricorn Man Stops Texting You?
This is a red flag where things take a turn that you probably will not appreciate. Capricorn men do tend to ghost people if they decide that their partner isn’t the right one. This would mean he ignores your texts.
You could text him: “I am sorry to bother you, but I was just wondering what made you stop answering my texts?” Or, you could say: “It makes me sad that we stopped communicating because everything seemed to be going pretty well between us. Did I offend you in any way?”
If he doesn’t respond, then you’re going to have to consider that he may not be into the relationship anymore. But, if he does reply, you’ll quickly see which way he is swinging.
