Hello, my gorgeous ladies. My heart really breaks when I get an email from one of you that says “My Capricorn man acts like he doesn’t care.” This really shouldn’t be the case when you are in a romantic relationship with a man.
This is why it is important that you perhaps know what are the signs a Capricorn man just wants to be friends. It is better to know where you stand with your Capricorn man than to get too involved with someone who just doesn’t feel the same.
You might think that if you are patient he will come around and be the partner you have always dreamt of, but this isn’t always the case. So how long to wait for a Capricorn man? And is it worth it?
If you are currently struggling with this, then keep on reading to find out how long you should wait for a Capricorn man.
What Does It Mean When A Capricorn Man Acts Like He Doesn’t Care?
It can feel pretty heartbreaking when you are so in love with a Capricorn man, but then he simply acts like he doesn’t care. Nothing is more devastating and can really drive a woman to madness.
There are so many different reasons why this might be happening, but I want you to know that the reason for this usually has a lot more to do with him than it has to do with you. So if he is acting up like this, then please don’t take it personally.
When a Capricorn man acts like he doesn’t care, it could mean that he really isn’t interested in you, or perhaps that he is so in love with you, but he is afraid of his feelings. Anything is possible with this earthly Zodiac sign.
You need to understand that Capricorn men are very serious, but sometimes it can be quite tough for them to express their emotions. Vulnerability is a very difficult thing to experience for a Capricorn, so he would much rather run away from it than feel like he was going to get hurt.
Another reason a Capricorn man goes silent is because he’s aware of your feelings and perhaps isn’t on the same page. He fears that he will hurt you, and because you’re a good person, he tries to be subtle by going quiet.
He needs time to process and tell you what he’s thinking or feeling. The Capricorn man goes quiet when he needs to reflect and figure out if this is going to be something he grows from or something he should walk away from.
Surefire Signs A Capricorn Man Just Wants To Be Friends (And Doesn’t Want A Relationship)
He Doesn’t Want To Spend Time With You
When a Capricorn man just wants to be friends, he is unlikely to prioritize you very much. The thing you need to understand about him is that his career will always be the most important thing in his life.
But when a Capricorn man is in love, he will prioritize her and make time for her in his life. He may just see you as a friend and think it is okay to only check in once in a while. If he isn’t making a lot of effort to see you, then chances are good that your Capricorn man just wants to be friends.
He Asks For Advice About Other Women
When you are only a friend to a Capricorn man, he may feel safe enough to confide in you about his problems such as his love life. When he isn’t interested in you, he is likely going to ask you advice about other women.
This just shows that he sees you as a confidant and someone who he trusts, but he definitely isn’t interested in you romantically. If he was, he would never do this. He is probably totally unaware of your feelings for him, and this is why he does it.
He Doesn’t Text You Or Reach Out
If your Capricorn man rarely texts you or reaches out at a minimum, then chances aren’t very good for a romantic connection with him. He obviously texts you now and then, but this is because he only sees you as a friend.
If you were more of a romantic priority for him, then he would definitely be texting you a lot more. A Capricorn man in love values connection and wants to feel close to you, but if he just sees you as a friend, he’ll reach out whenever he feels like it.

Capricorn Man Confusing Me — Why Would He Go Silent When He Likes Me?
He Isn’t Sure About Commitment
Capricorn men tend to take their time when they commit. They want to be sure that you’re going to stand the test of time and remain who you are.
A Capricorn man won’t commit without being certain of what he’s doing with himself and where his future is headed. That is why a Capricorn man wants to be friends first and foremost.
That means that if he isn’t sure about you, he won’t be sure about being in a relationship with you. That doesn’t mean that a Capricorn man doesn’t like you. It’s more that a Capricorn man hasn’t decided you’re the one yet.
Perhaps He Isn’t Into You
There is a chance that your Capricorn man just isn’t that into you. When a Capricorn is not that interested in a woman, he might become distant and silent.
If a Capricorn man tells you he only wants to be friends, he is being very serious and isn’t just saying it for the heck of it. I’ve had a few women write in and say he tells them that, but they feel he has feelings for them.
No, if he tells you he doesn’t, he doesn’t. He may also feel his life isn’t lined up for any relationships at all. As such, he will blow you off for anything more than just a friendship.
Just remember that sometimes it starts out with only friends and develops into more. This is why a Capricorn man wants to be friends first. It’s part of the process of dating him.
Something else you need to know is that a Capricorn man won’t commit to someone he doesn’t feel a connection with or feels at least compatible with to some degree.
The Cautious Capricorn Mind
As you may have read in some of my other articles, the Capricorn man usually takes an inordinate amount of time before he’ll commit himself to someone special. He has to be sure, and then be sure some more.
A Capricorn man isn’t one to quickly dive into something that he isn’t sure of. He doesn’t throw caution to the wind. So if you’re involved with a Capricorn man, you can expect to wait until he is sure of you and of the relationship.
If you know he’s not being cold with you and hasn’t “friend zoned” you, just give him time to come around. If you truly care about him, you’ll be willing to wait and give him all the space he requires.
There is no need to hurry up or push him into something he’s not sure of. If you do try, he’ll likely push you back, and then you’ll be left wondering what just happened.
Capricorns aren’t nice to people who push them. He would rather logically discuss things, and if this means ironing out what is going on between you two, it’s best you talk to him about it instead of worrying unnecessarily.
Sometimes Capricorn men go silent to make some kind of point. If not, then he is subconsciously being very cautious. This is something to pay attention to and take note of.
He May Be Waiting For You to Speak Up
Capricorn men are typically into women who are independent and know what they want from a man. If you’re sitting back and waiting for him to take the lead, he may not be aware.
It’s possible he has no idea how you feel or what you want, which would make him proceed as though nothing is happening. In this case, you may want to speak up and make it known what you want.
If you never tell him what you want or where you see things going, he’ll never actually know for sure, thus holding back on pushing things forward. Why would you try to cultivate something you aren’t even sure is there?
Make sure he understands you want something more with him. Once he has that information, he can then decide if he wants the same thing or if he feels like one of the other options I’ve mentioned in this article.

How Do You Know When A Capricorn Man Is Losing Feelings?
It’s possible he’s been through the ringer in another relationship which makes him a bit gun shy about getting into another relationship. Perhaps he’s still carrying around emotional baggage.
If he isn’t ready, he’ll likely just tell you that though. He won’t be one that will act like he’s hot for you but then shies away. Not to say he can’t do the hot and cold act, he can and will, depending on the circumstances.
What I can tell you though is, that they have high integrity and will often just tell you that they’re still wounded or are dealing with past garbage and are simply not in the right space or time to begin a new relationship.
Only those that are young or inexperienced will not know what to do with themselves thus resulting in a Capricorn male who backs off when he gets too close to someone.
So beware of the brooding in silence types. If they seem as though they’re sulking or suffering from depression, they probably are and nothing about you will change this. He is who he is and only HE can change it.
His past will often dictate much of what he decides in his life for the future. Just like you, he may have been hurt or had difficult times. He just takes longer to recover than many.

End Anxiety About Your Capricorn Man…
It can be SO painful to worry about how to make things work with a Capricorn man who acts like he doesn’t care.
I know. I’ve been there with many of my friends dating Capricorn guys.
I remember my very close friend crying herself to sleep at night, worried that her man would never commit to her. She lost sleep, time, and even work hours, all because she couldn’t figure out how to capture his heart and get him to commit.
As a friend, it was hard to watch her go through that.
But I knew how good he was for her, and I didn’t want her to give up on him. Even when our other friends were telling her to move on, I could see that he was the most incredible man she had ever met.
How could she just give up on that?
But it wasn’t easy.
It took a LOT of work.
She had to learn how to speak a different language… his love language.
And it worked!!
So if you are ready to sleep like a baby… Knowing your Capricorn man is MADLY in love with you… And never feel anxious about him again…
