How Do You Know When a Capricorn Man Misses You?
At first, it can be tough to suss out when a Capricorn man misses you.
He’s too much of a realist to open himself up quickly to anybody. So even if he’s pining, he may sit on his hands.
That is, up until a certain point.
He’s also a practical man—he knows if he wants you, he’ll have to get in touch with you.
At the end of the day, if a Capricorn hasn’t communicated with you in a bit and is now taking the initiative (and sounding super smooth about it), he’s not bored.
He truly misses you.
Mind you, if he says he misses you right away, it’s not a spontaneous emotional outpouring. It’s because he’s already planned it out and feels confident that he can win you over.
It depends on your relationship and his comfort level.
Otherwise, he may stick to dropping hints and feeling you out.

How to Make a Capricorn Man Miss You
1. Let him see what’s special about you
Capricorns need to be super impressed to be into you, let alone to miss you.
Their partners tend to be unique, uber successful and otherwise admirable to folks around them.
This is no accident!
Capricorn guys look for outstanding qualities in a woman, which means you have to make sure your Cappy sees yours.
What’s interesting, enterprising or fascinating about you?
It has to be more than your beauty. A Capricorn will grow restless with the most drop-dead gorgeous woman if there isn’t enough substance to her.
Do you run a small business? Sing?
Are you a marketing genius? Have an enviable knowledge of modern British literature?
Whatever you’re proud of, give the Capricorn guy a taste so his eyes are opened to how amazing—and missable—you are.
2. Practice restraint with contacting him
This is a tip that can’t be underestimated in importance.
If you want to pop into his head at 2 a.m. so he can’t sleep anymore, consider whether you’re giving him the impression that you’re chasing him.
If you’re send him texts to wish him good morning and good night on the daily, you’re probably giving off needier signals than you intend to.
While he loves attention, too much availability on your part threatens your image of independence and, frankly, makes your time appear less valuable to him.
As an earth sign, that last part is important in handling him.
But if you back away enough to make him anticipate your messages, they have greater importance and impact.
And suddenly, the Capricorn man is wondering when he’ll get some more of your time.
3. Win his trust
This tip is worth its weight in gold if you consider the hard-to-get plays and jealousy tactics that many women feel they have to resort to in order to keep a man.
Capricorn needs to feel totally secure about a woman, which includes not feeling like he has other men to worry about. Or like you’re lukewarm about him.
Although he’s possessive, he’ll never fight for a woman who hasn’t, in his mind, proven herself 100% to him. Realistically, over a considerable period of time and observation.
He needs to know—do you have his back? Are you always on his team?
Be honest and transparent, but also show him that you’re willing to go the extra mile for him. Especially when he needs a favor.
His reliance on you will make him realize how important you are in his life, and he’ll reward you with attention and his unwavering allegiance.
4. Work on your career goals
According to Capricorn men, one of the most attractive traits in a female is her will to succeed in her career.
Whatever you do for a living, highlight your hard work and ambitions. Impress him with a driven, go-getter attitude.
Capricorns are interested in the action, not just talk, so give a Capricorn guy insight into your actual plans.
What this does is it allows the Capricorn man to visualize a future together, specifically because he wants to be with someone as enterprising as he is.
On the flip side, if he doesn’t see that possible future, he won’t be inclined to put in much time with you.
Which means he won’t be invested, and he won’t covet you.
This is not the only way to get “in” with a Capricorn, but it’s one of the things you should do if you can, simply to show you’re on his level.
5. Value yourself
A Capricorn will only give you as much respect as you give yourself.
It can be tricky with Capricorn guys because they’re polite and respectful in their dealings with you.
However, they quickly start to recalibrate how they see you and what type of relationship you have with them based on the behaviors you exhibit and encourage.
Generally, instead of just agreeing with him, have your own opinions.
Don’t kowtow to a Capricorn man or jump through hoops trying to mold yourself into something you think he wants.
Don’t sleep with him straight away simply because he wants to.
You should walk into any friendship or dating scenario with a Capricorn knowing your worth and not lowering your standards to appease anybody. Not even him.
This reaffirms your value in a Cap’s eyes and gives you the power to set the tone for your relationship—and make yourself truly missable.
If you’re still not sure how to get a Capricorn man to value you, you can learn the proper techniques in Capricorn Man Secrets.
6. Show him your tender side
Even though Capricorn men like career women, a woman who has no nurturing instinct will probably not appeal to them enough.
You want to show a Cap your softer, more feminine side.
Have a strong maternal streak? Don’t bury it.
Capricorn men are stoic and often hyper masculine. However, Saturn-ruled Capricorn is also the family-oriented father figure of the zodiac.
He seeks a soulful, nurturing woman as his mate, both to balance him and be his natural counterpart.
So go right ahead and be open and vulnerable with him. Listen to him and empathize with him. Be his emotional shelter.
This is how you start to pry open his rigid exterior and offer him security so that he can develop an emotional attachment to you, and pine for you when you’re gone.
7. Never bore him
A Capricorn has high expectations of the woman who claims him.
He wants to be excited, riveted and intellectually stimulated, to crave a woman because she’s so incredibly interesting to him.
You don’t have to go over the top. Just want to save your interactions with him for the times they can be really meaningful and enjoyable.
He likes brainy conversations and evenings that involve good food and drinks.
Though he’s not one for a wild night or surprises, he does like live music, shooting pool and laid-back entertainment.
There’s also magic in a little mystery, so have layers for the Capricorn to peel back.
In short, bring your A game with you.
He’ll be so enthralled with you, you’ll burn up the track running through his mind.
8. Text him something thoughtful
Simply because you don’t want to over-contact him doesn’t mean you never should.
In fact, sending a well-wishing message his way can do a lot as it gives the restrained Capricorn permission. Permission to feel feelings for you, and reciprocate.
Sometimes all a Capricorn guy needs is to see how much you care about him through your earnest approach and kind words.
Start with asking him how he’s doing. Simple and effective without trying too hard.
Then make sure your responses to him are genuine.
Identify with him if he’s dealing with something unpleasant and let him know you’re there for him.
This simple act of kindness and caring can flip an emotional switch in a Capricorn man’s mind.
9. Relate to him
Capricorns gravitate toward others who are like-minded.
More often than not, they prefer the company of those who share their values and viewpoints.
This is why it’s important to show you can relate to a Capricorn guy if you want him to miss you.
Again, this is not the same as agreeing with him just to placate him.
It’s more about finding where your commonalities are and bringing them to the forefront.
This helps make a Capricorn feel he’s with someone who has the potential to actually get him, a difficult (but crucial) feat in his opinion.
Pick up his vibe and meet him there.
Don’t be critical of him—and never give the impression that you’re better than him.
The better you are at this, the more aligned he’ll feel with you, and the more he’ll want to make sure you’re never too far away from him.
10. Build your friendship
Did you launch right into romance with a Capricorn guy?
If you failed to get a friendly foundation going, he may no longer be as responsive to you as he initially was, or as much as you’d hoped.
It’s because that comfort element of friendship is missing for him.
Capricorns want to someday marry their best friend. If you want to date a Capricorn man, you must keep that in your mind.
Not everything is shooting stars and mad passion. A Capricorn knows all too well that romance can come and go. But friendships are stable.
A Capricorn man should feel that you’re the one person he wants at his side to do everything with, whether it’s fun or not so fun.
If you can achieve this, you’ll have one devoted Cap on your hands who will hardly let you wonder how he feels about you.
Other Capricorn Man Questions
Why do Capricorns ignore you?
Capricorns aren’t always ignoring you on purpose.
They’re workaholics. Often, they’re just so focused on work or climbing some mountain to get to their goals that they leave little time for other people.
But, of course, if a Capricorn man is ignoring you and you think it might be on purpose, it could be a test to set boundaries and ensure that you aren’t demanding too much of his time.
However, a Capricorn man also considers himself a pragmatist.
If, for whatever reason, he doesn’t see your relationship as having serious potential, he’ll file you away where he can take you out, put you back and ignore you as it suits him.
How do you make a Capricorn man obsessed with you?
The Capricorn man gets obsessed with highly individualistic women who think for themselves and are success-driven.
So, show the Cappy that you’re independent, focused and working on yourself and your career.
Have confidence in yourself when you speak to the Capricorn man.
Value your own opinions and show off your intelligence.
Don’t forget to also give him a glimpse of your gentle, sweet side as Capricorn men love soft, nurturing women.
And never be too available to the Capricorn or he’ll get bored!

What is a Capricorn man’s weakness?
Emotionally, Capricorn men often come off as cold.
They take a long time to trust someone, and they would rather deny themselves feelings of pleasure, love and happiness than take risks.
Obviously, this hurts the Capricorn the most in the end.
At the same time, repressed emotions make him susceptible to escapism.
When the pendulum swings the other way with the hardworking, stoic Capricorn man, he may overindulge in things like alcohol and one-night stands.
How do you make a Capricorn feel loved?
Capricorns believe what they see with their own eyes.
So, if you want to make a Capricorn feel loved, show him with action.
Acts of kindness and caretaking as well as going out of your way to support him and make him feel good demonstrate your love.
When you communicate your feelings, do so openly and in a direct way.
Nothing too dramatic. Instead of saying you can’t live without him, use a complimentary statement like, “You are the best man I know. I’m proud of loving you.”
Save your words, though, for when you really mean them as Capricorns don’t like a lot of fluff and are wary of insincerity.
How to make a Capricorn man chase you
Give him a clear green light—without ever overstepping his boundaries.
For a Capricorn man, this means showing him meaningful one-on-one attention while respecting his boundaries by continuing to focus on your own life.
You need to show him he’s smart, charming and interesting enough to be your only romantic interest, but that you’re not waiting around for him.
This is one of the most important things to keep in mind with a Capricorn, but if you want more information, read How to Make a Capricorn Man Chase You.
When a Capricorn man is done with you
You know a Capricorn man is done with you when he cuts you off completely and seemingly without remorse. It’s like he amputates you from his life.
If he’s ending a relationship with you, he will try to be polite and may apologize to you.
But you’ll feel the door close like a blast of cold air.
He won’t play around with back-and-forth emotions or lead you on in any way.
Maybe you can be friends after some distancing, but make no mistake—his exit will be sudden.
