How to Date a Capricorn: Expectations, Pro Tips, and Understanding the Personality
Capricorn, oh Capricorn. If you happen to catch the heart of a Capricorn and keep him or her, you are lucky. These are great long term mates and they do tend to make strong parents. They're okay more so than other signs to have -- breakups in dating. It may come out of nowhere that the tables suddenly turn, but if they start to get the hint that you would not be so great for them and their supposed kids, you might be seeing a break up. The Capricorn is feisty animal, competitive, wants to win, and argue. The Capricorn oozes in sex appeal and can often be laid back (to a degree). They might throw you off guard with their ways. They are diverse people in this sign who tend to like a number of hobbies, tricks, trades, careers, interests, all those synonyms.
The Capricorn wants someone to love. They want someone who can go to parties with them, who can intellectually keep up with their arguments, and who will be a good parent. Did I write couple costumes yet? There are an odd amount of couples I've seen in couple costumes around Halloween where at least one person is a Capy. Why the heck they like costumes to this degree, I don't know -- but they probably want to show everybody else up in the room. The Capricorn both likes you for who you are and also for the status symbol that they see in you. Brad Pitt himself is a Capricorn, and though this personality is not prone to cheating, it does know when it sees a good trophy. The man first had Jennifer Aniston and then got snagged away by Scorpio Angelina Jolie. If that doesn't scream "status symbol" then I don't know what does.

Capricorn and Break Ups
Capricorn is an earth sign. It loves to drink. Most Capricorns I knows love social drinking, and you may annoy the heck out of them if don't partake in drinking (if that's their deal). This zodiac may like trivia at the bar, playing board games, loud parties, traveling, adventures, camping, loud friends, and all kinds of distractions. I really love Capricorns; some of the best friends I've ever made are Capys. They can be difficult to know if they really love you. They play the social scene so much and often just want the social scene and not just a real connection. This can be frustrating and difficult to know if they really do love you, especially if they drop you at the drop of a hat. So how do you know if a Capricorn is really true to you?
Time will tell. Don't get your head too in over your heart; Capricorns tell love a lot through their eyes. They'll try to impress you rather than the other way around. If you feel like you are doing all the impressing in a Capricorn relationship, something might be off. Perhaps it has been a long relationship and therefore the Capricorn is comfortable with the status quo. Capricorns don't like to break up, but they know, or have some sort of itch, that something isn't clicking. Breaking up with a Capricorn can be difficult because the actual relationship may have been going quite smoothly, but Capricorn may have other ideas that get into their head such as religion, the type of place they want to live, the number of dogs they want to have, etc. They're not fighters for these kinds of practical things; this is where they are stubborn. Certain needs must be met by them because they are an earth sign. Earth signs require some amount of practicality and tradition. Taurus needs a high level amount of tradition. I'd say of the three, Virgo can get away with the least; Virgo in some ways is the oddball of the earth family. Virgo is by far the most independent zodiac of all. The reason Virgo isn't as worried about what you can offer practically is because the Virgo already requires itself to take care of those things -- it's not looking for someone to fill those gaps. Virgo just wants someone to fit in the picture they're already building.
But Capricorn needs you to be on the same page.
Capricorn is a thinking and feeling zodiac. I've seen both great thinkers and feelers out of this sign. They really care about the emotional texture of a room. They want the social scene to feel right, and they'll do what they can to make that happen. A lot of Capricorns are great at planning parties. They love to see different kinds of people intermingle with each other and see what kind of combinations will happen. They adore the strange, the normal, the not too smart, and the way too smart. Capricorn wants everybody there (they may secretly judge you behind doors, but they still want you there.) It is an inclusive zodiac. It hates for people to feel left out, even if it isn't best friends with that person. Don't make that mistake. Sometimes the Capricorn feels really bad after a break up because they feel like a jerk, but they bounce back pretty quick. They're not going to let something momentary keep them down when they know they need to get back on track to find the love match they're wanting.
If you want to attract a Capricorn, you'll need to be a strong thinker, open minded, humorous, clean, strong, and dependable. Capricorn men tend to seek fiercely feminine mates and Capricorn women tend to seek fiercely masculine mates. They're not so much into gender bending, challenging gender norms, or the like. They have an edge of conservatism that runs true in their souls. So if you are somewhat more ambiguous gender wise Capricorn might not be as accepting about it as maybe other zodiacs who are not looking for something as traditional. Some zodiacs are more open to dating people that do have some gender bending, for instance Aquarius is more open than some to date of other cultures, ages, and gender persuasions. This would be edgy for a Capricorn. Not that it isn't impossible, they're just usually playing more safe cards.
How to tell a Capricorn Likes You
One of the best ways to know if a Capricorn likes you is if they are constantly wanting to spend time with you. Time to them is their greatest resource. They want to connect, play some games, drink a little, have some adventures -- you'll see them a lot. They'll most likely call you a lot or communicate with you somehow to get you to spend time with them. They may initially just invite you to a party. Capricorn likes to see how people mingle with others at a party. This is one of their qualifications of dating someone. Now a drinking Capricorn will date someone that does not drink if they feel the non drinker is still an interesting person... and is also ridiculously attractive. Capricorn likes to have a good drinking buddy. So for those of you who don't like alcohol, don't be too surprised if Capricorn doesn't look your way.
If Capricorn starts inviting to lots of things, you should definitely go. It might not turn into a big romance, but you will have a good time. Capricorn wants to guarantee that your time is well spent with them. And Capricorn is a very respectful zodiac. This is what is so appealing about them is that they really are good at addressing people and charming them. Just don't make the mistake that one is your best friend when they are only a friend or less. It's easy to get deceived by a Capricorn, but it probably wasn't their intent. They have no clue how friendly and sometimes flirty they can be. They're mostly wanting you to feel included.
