by Anna Kovach, relationship astrologer
Wondering why a Capricorn man is afraid to commit to love and scared of his feelings? Here are some reasons.

I often get my clients asking me about Capricorn men and if a Capricorn man scared of feelings, what to do about it? When a Capricorn man is scared of feelings, it’s important to approach the situation with patience and understanding.

Capricorn men tend to be quite stoic and reserved, making it challenging for them to openly express their emotions. Trust me, they do have feelings, it just isn’t that easy for them to be open about it.

Just understand that his approach is not personal at all and that he is just acting this way out of fear and self-protection. Approaching a Capricorn man who is scared of feelings with patience and understanding can help create a safe space for him to open up and express himself. But more on that later…

In this article, I am going to tell you exactly what to do to help a Capricorn man overcome his fear of feelings and open up to you. You don’t want to miss out on this!

Why Is A Capricorn Man Taking So Long When It Comes To Commitment?

There can be several reasons why a Capricorn man is taking so long to commit when it comes to relationships. Capricorn men are known for their cautious and practical nature, and they often take their time before fully committing to a relationship.

These men tend to carefully weigh the pros and cons of a potential partnership, examining whether it aligns with their long-term goals and ambitions.

Additionally, Capricorn men value stability and security, so they may be hesitant to commit until they feel confident that the relationship will provide those qualities. Here’s more on what a Capricorn man wants in a relationship.

It’s important to recognize that a Capricorn man’s reluctance to commit is not a reflection of his lack of interest or feelings for you. Instead, it stems from his need for certainty and practicality in all aspects of life, including relationships.

To help a Capricorn man overcome his fear of commitment, it’s crucial to establish trust and communicate openly with him. Show him that you are patient and willing to give him the time and space he needs to feel comfortable.

5 Possible Reason Why A Capricorn Is Scared To Commit To Love

Fears of Being Hurt

This could be a number one fear for most people. Capricorn has a serious aversion to taking risks that can lead to his heart being broken. Therefore, this type of fear will paralyze him at times.

This absolutely can and will keep this man from taking the next step and committing to a woman he’s really into. This is also why a Capricorn man is taking so long to commit. He wants to test and be certain you’re the one.

A Capricorn man will test you, he will take you through the ringer, and he will see what you’re made of before he’ll actually take the time to invest in something more long term if not forever.

Fear of being hurt is a big one for many people. For Capricorn; it’s serious business which is why he will take dating seriously even though it’s not that high of a level yet.

He May Have Walls

If a Capricorn man has been hurt enough; he will likely have some walls in place that have been there for some time. It will take a whole lot of effort and time in order to get these walls to come down.

It will require a strong woman who is reliable and loving to help him understand that she’s not going to go anywhere despite his difficult demeanor. He is very picky but not unreasonable.

Capricorn man has high standards along with these walls. He has an idea of what type of woman can actually get him to lower these walls in order to let her crawl on over and into his heart.

Patience is a huge requirement when dealing with Capricorn. There are no shortcuts and no quick simple fixes for helping this man to heal whatever it is that he’s been through.

Too Picky and Demanding

Capricorn guys are known for being notoriously picky. They know exactly what they want and will accept nothing less. They have high standards and expect to find a woman who will meet their demands.

His desires are very specific. He knows what he needs as well as what he wants, therefore, he’ll try to find a woman who will suit these desires. It may sometimes seem impossible but he’ll keep looking.

If he does find someone who meets some of his needs and/or desires; he may give it a shot but he’ll take his time to see how things go for awhile before he’ll actually consider commitment.

This pickiness can cause him to seem like a prude or “out of reach”. While this is somewhat true at times; there are times that he relaxes and lets someone in. It’s hard to determine which may be the case.

Traditional Courting

This is yet another reason Capricorn takes slow to commit. He is old school and wants to court a woman before he brings up commitment and lifetime situations.

He would prefer to take you out, spend time with you, and figure out who you are at the core rather than jump right into more serious dating or seeing one another. He’d talk to you on the phone or meet up for coffee anytime, though.

He will meet up with you, spend some time with you, and hang out. However, if you want him to be more than that, you’re going to have to be patient with him. Hold off long enough that he can see if you’re worth going for more.

Until he has that part down, he won’t go any faster, and there is nothing you can say or do to make him speed up the process. He knows he has to take his time, or he’ll end up hurt or disappointed.

Really, there is no actual need to hurry anyway. Slow down and enjoy the time you spend with your Capricorn guy. You may find more success flowing your way if you sit back and let things go as they will.

He’s Letting Nature Take its Course

Capricorn men are keen on letting things come as they are. He will take each day at it comes. This also means that he’d rather let a relationship develop over time rather than jumping right in.

If you find that you’re ready to commit and he isn’t; it’s likely that he’s waiting to see how things go first. Time and living each day as it comes helps you to see what is real and what isn’t.

He will often let relationships be determined by what the collective of days bring. If you cannot do this; he may see this as incompatibility. You forcing your will on him to be more will not work.

If you’re in a huge rush; Capricorn isn’t the right guy for you. Also if you’re in a huge rush; you may want to think about why it is you feel as though you need to hurry up.

It’s always much better to take each day as it comes and see what develops. Capricorn does this as you should. It’s much healthier and may help you cultivate a more serious relationship on down the line.

4 Telltale Signs A Capricorn Man Wants A Relationship But Is Scared Of Feelings

He Is Guarded, But Spends Time With You

A Capricorn man who is scared of feelings may still spend time with you, but he will keep his guard up and be hesitant to fully open up emotionally. He might not tell you what he is thinking or feeling, and may seem distant or reserved at times. But he will still want to spend time with you and make an effort to maintain the connection, showing that he values your presence in his life.

However, it is important to understand that his guardedness and hesitancy to open up emotionally doesn’t necessarily mean that he doesn’t want a relationship with you. Capricorn men are often cautious when it comes to matters of the heart, as they want to ensure that they are making the right decision.

His willingness to spend time with you despite his reservations indicates that he sees potential in the relationship. It shows that he values your presence and enjoys your company. While it may take time for him to fully open up and express his feelings, patience and understanding on your part will go a long way in building trust and deepening your connection.

He Talks About the Future

A Capricorn man who is scared of feelings may subtly talk about the future with you. He might mention future plans or goals that he has, and subtly include you in those conversations. For example, he might discuss potential trips or events that he would like to do together in the future, or he might mention how he envisions his life in the long term and how you could fit into it.

These conversations about the future are a clear indication that he sees you as a part of his long-term plans. While he may not explicitly express his feelings, his willingness to include you in his vision for the future is a sign that he is open to the idea of a committed relationship with you.

He Goes the Extra Mile to Make You Happy

A Capricorn man who is scared of feelings may go above and beyond to make you happy. He may surprise you with small gestures of affection or take the time to do things that he knows will bring you joy. This shows that he is invested in your happiness and wants to create a positive and fulfilling relationship with you, despite his reservations.

This level of effort and thoughtfulness in making you happy indicates that he genuinely cares about your well-being and wants to build a strong connection with you. Even though he may have fears and insecurities about fully embracing his feelings, his actions speak louder than words.

He Seeks Emotional Support and Guidance

A Capricorn man who is scared of feelings may seek emotional support and guidance from you. This can manifest in different ways, such as confiding in you about his fears and insecurities, seeking advice on how to navigate difficult emotions, or simply looking to you for comfort and reassurance when he’s feeling vulnerable.

This willingness to open up and be vulnerable with you is a clear indication that he trusts you and values your support. Despite his fear of fully embracing his feelings, he recognizes the importance of having someone by his side who can provide emotional support.

In these moments, it is crucial to be patient, understanding, and empathetic. Encourage him to share his thoughts and emotions without judgment or criticism. Make him feel safe and secure in expressing himself, knowing that you are there to listen and offer support.

By being a source of emotional support and guidance for him, you are helping him overcome his fears and insecurities. Your willingness to be there for him during these vulnerable moments can help strengthen the emotional bond between you and create a foundation of trust.

How To Get A Capricorn Man To Commit (6 Ways)

While it is important to be patient and understanding with a Capricorn man who is scared of feelings, there are also steps you can take to encourage him to commit:

Be Consistent And Reliable

If you want to get a Capricorn man to commit to you, be consistent and reliable in your actions and words. Show him that you can be trusted and relied upon by following through on your commitments, being there for him during both good and difficult times, and demonstrating consistency in your affection and support. 

Consistency and reliability will help alleviate his fears of being hurt or let down. It will give him the reassurance he needs to feel comfortable opening up and committing to a deeper emotional connection with you.

Acknowledge His Fears and Insecurities

Acknowledge his fears and insecurities by validating his emotions and letting him know that it’s normal to feel scared or uncertain in a relationship. This validation can help him feel understood and accepted. It will make it easier for him to confront and work through his fears.

Additionally, it is important to create a safe and supportive environment where he feels comfortable discussing his fears and insecurities openly.

Encourage Open Communication

Encourage open communication by actively listening to him, asking open-ended questions, and creating a non-judgmental space where he can freely express himself without fear of criticism or rejection. Allowing him to express his thoughts and feelings without interruption or judgment will help him feel heard and understood.

Give Him Time and Space

Give him time and space to process his emotions and fears. You need to realize that you need to be patient with a Capricorn man and not put too much pressure on him as this will only turn him off. Allow him the opportunity to reflect and work through his feelings at his own pace.

Have High Standards for Yourself

A Capricorn man wants a woman with GOALS. On top of that, the woman he stays with forever needs to have a plan for how she’ll reach her dreams, step by step. He is going to fall in love with the woman who knows what she wants to do and how she’ll get there.

You need to be willing to have dreams that blow the roof off of your current circumstances. The Capricorn will be inspired by your unabiding commitment to yourself!

The key here is following up your dreams with concrete action. A Capricorn knows that dreams are just that unless you take firm steps to secure them into your reality. He can spot someone who has no ambition from a mile away and believe me, they’ll work to keep them at least a mile away!

Take It Slow

The Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. If Saturn had a catchphrase, it would be “slow and steady wins the race.” Saturn influences the Capricorn in this way and forces him to hold back the floodgates when it comes to his desires.

Capricorns are always going to be three steps behind everyone else. This is because they are taking every step mindfully and with control to make sure they’re doing everything right. As a result of this tendency, a Capricorn man taking a slow time settling into a committed relationship.

I advise you to never rush the Capricorn man. He’s not here to play games and he won’t get swept away in the throes of emotion just for you. You’re going to have to be patient while he realizes that you’re the one he wants!

One thought on “Capricorn Man Scared Of Feelings (Most Common Capricorn Man Commitment Issues)

  1. I am a Leo 30(F), my Cappy is 24(M).

    We’re at 8 months, he just asked me to be his girlfriend yesterday.

    Ultimately what made my Capricorn want to commit was after another bought of being scared of that commitment and feeling unsure he slept with someone else and felt awful. He didn’t feel like anyone would support, love and care for him and him the way I have during the rough times and of course because he’s committed to success he doesn’t see someone else having an opportunity to demonstrate that level of care because he won’t be in low places again. My speculation on that is he’ll have to wonder about whoever he’s with when he’s back on top of the world so how could he really connect?

    Patience, understanding, GENUINE friendship, honesty, loyalty as has been said by anyone giving Capricorn advice, it’s all true and black and white like that. Anna’s guide truly was a help. I would have felt like I was with a bad guy playing mindgames without it when I really am with a wonderful person relationship status or not.
