Winning the heart of a Capricorn man is not an endeavor to be taken lightly. These men are not looking for casual affairs. They are seeking long-term relationships with solid, faithful, family-oriented women who adore them. Capricorn men are extremely ambitious and lead well-thought-out and planned lives. They piece all aspects of life together in an integrated whole that leads them to success. The woman who is able to win the heart of a Capricorn man has won a prize worth cherishing for a whole lifetime.
Dress for success. Bling is not going to impress this man. He has definite goals and wants everything in his life to be a part of his plan. Clothes and accessories should show that if you have not already achieved success yourself, you are aware of what it takes to do so. Study how successful people in his field dress and emulate them.
Admire him. The Capricorn has an enormous ego despite being a shy man. He wants to be admired and liked. Tell him often what you love about him but keep it real. He will spot false praise. Show interest in his plans by asking questions. Be enthusiastic and encouraging when he talks about them. Your Capricorn guy needs your eyes to sparkle for him alone.
Avoid flirting. This man has has a tendency to be overly jealous. A Capricorn man wants a woman who is his own prize. Her attention needs to be focused on him alone. Flirting will not coerce this man to profess his interest in you. It may cause him to hold back and re-evaluate his feelings for you instead. Arousing this man's jealousy is a quick way to make him lose interest in you completely.
Support his goals. Although Capricorn men are highly romantic and sensitive, success is always first on this man's mind. Love must make logical sense to him and fit into his long-term objectives. Find ways that you can be useful to him in attaining his goals and subtly show him how your own plans are compatible with his. Being a solid team member in the journey toward success is a sure way into the Capricorn man's heart.
Appreciate the security and leadership he offers. The instinct to protect and lead is strong in the Capricorn male. He needs to be needed as well as loved. Ask his advice frequently and listen when he offers it. Allow him to be protective. This man will most appreciate a woman who finds security in the home and with family. The truly independent woman will not be happy for too long with this man.
Walk away from the relationship quickly if your Capricorn man shows a tendency to be too jealous or domineering. The disposition to protect and lead is wonderful when kept in balance. When they become predominant, these traits can lead to Capricorns becoming violently controlling and jealous. These traits are not likely to just disappear once they surface. If your Capricorn insists on having too much power over you, the best way to deal with him is to leave.
