How to Make a Capricorn Man Regret Losing You
1. Stop contacting him
Right now, stop reaching out to your Capricorn ex!
Not just with phone calls. Stop all texts. Don’t think an email is safe, either.
Because ultimately, you’re not trying to give him space—you’re trying to separate yourself from him entirely.
After a breakup, a Capricorn won’t be as receptive as you hope.
If he left you, he had a good reason. If you left him, he may opt to punish you and reject you for reaching out.
Don’t even message him to say hi. Pretend he doesn’t exist.
Let him see what life is like without you since you don’t need him.
That’s the behavior that will get him reconsidering his choices.
2. Don’t get sloppy
A woman who has it all together is a Capricorn man’s pick.
If he sees you maintaining your cool instead of posting sad love song lyrics and becoming a hot mess, he’ll really think about that.
Sometimes, Capricorn men can give you false hope by playing the white knight. You know, where they’ll try to help and look after you if you’re falling apart post-breakup.
However, this is merely out of care and concern. The hard truth is, they still won’t take you back.
Better to be empowered. That’s the only way to entice him back.
3. Invest in yourself
Where are the areas for improvement in your life?
A low-paying job you hate? Toxic relationships or associations? Physical or emotional health?
Time to start whipping them into shape.
If your Capricorn man thought you were an emotional wreck, try therapy, yoga, meditation—whatever you need.
If work holds you back, apply to other jobs. Or try furthering your education.
As far as your appearance goes, anything you do to pamper yourself will show the Capricorn that you’re invested in yourself.
So walk, take kickboxing, treat yourself to a new, chic wardrobe.
A Capricorn wants to date up, not down—so show him you’re the top-tier.
4. Get some achievements under your belt
Milestones prove to a Capricorn that you’re making real progress.
As you work on yourself, keep those milestones in sight.
Go on and complete that certification course that will put you in a better position in your career.
Making progress in anything related to material gain or improving your status draws a Capricorn’s attention to you.
When you don’t just try, but actually accomplish, you give the Capricorn tangible evidence.
To an earth sign like Capricorn, that’s the only way to convince him.
Demonstrate not just your desire to succeed, but your actual power to do so.
Other women just won’t measure up.
5. Show off on social media
While you’re putting your free time into improving your life, don’t forget to post on social media.
Don’t brag, but do recognize you’re dealing with a sign that thinks in terms of value, status and success.
Get not only his attention, but everyone else’s.
Post about your achievements, plus the effort you put into them so it shows they’re well-deserved.
Post pictures of you and your gal pals living it up, too.
If you get a cute haircut, show it off.
Aim to reveal your boss self to the world. As people take notice of you, your Capricorn man will get more and more jealous that you’re not his.
6. Try going on dates
Capricorns understand that you don’t owe them anything after a breakup.
Still, they’ll get those old feelings of possessiveness when they see you going out with someone else.
The best thing to do is date casually, so you’re not committing yourself to any serious relationships.
The Capricorn himself may be going on dates, even if he’s still pining for you.
But they won’t deter him if he feels he’s really losing his chance with you.
So go ahead and get out there as a single woman, since that’s what you are—right, Capricorn??

7. Don’t act like you’re trying to get his attention
While you’re blossoming, you don’t want to give off the vibe that you’re doing it to please the Capricorn man.
That will surely make him feel powerful, but that’s not the type of power you want to give him.
Which means, you should be doing everything with your own targets in mind. Not for the sole purpose of getting back together with him.
Don’t obviously direct any of your social posts at him.
If you’re doing a good job at not contacting him and not falling very publicly apart, this should be pretty easy.
Your mantra is that you’re doing it all for yourself. Not because you need his approval.
8. Take your sweet time replying
What if your Capricorn guy ends up contacting you?
Now is when you can reestablish communication. Because now you’re not asking him to talk to you. Your Capricorn man has made up his mind.
Only, you want to make sure you’re not opening the floodgates.
Keep in mind, a Capricorn is cautious to the max.
It suits his style well—and ramps up his increasing desire for you—when you’re too busy to reply to him immediately.
Give it a few hours. Heck, a day even.
Remember, you’re busy rocking your career and otherwise living your life well.
All reasons he’s getting in touch with you in the first place.
9. Be distantly friendly
In the beginning of reestablishing contact, play it safe.
Don’t jump right into the emotional stuff and pour your heart out.
Keep things easy and light. Go in with the aim of being friends.
Good friends, without romantic entanglement.
Avoid pushing anything from your former love life with him into conversations to see what he’ll say.
Keep it casual.
10. Be receptive if he opens up
In case your Capricorn man comes to you with his heart on his sleeve, that’s actually when you want to welcome him with open arms.
A Capricorn who feels rejected will instantly ice up on you like it’s January in Alaska.
So, if he’s ready, don’t keep him at arm’s length.
At this point, you should be careful about leaving him hanging when he calls.
Otherwise, you run the risk of inflaming his insecurities.
That can make him slam that door shut forever.
11. After a while, it’s okay to run into him
It’s been months. You never heard from your Capricorn ex.
If possible, you can arrange to bump into him somewhere public, where you know he’ll be.
As long as it doesn’t seem like you’re stalking him.
If you’ve been applying the tips on this list, chances are very good that he’s already gone through some midnight wake-ups thinking about an alternate universe where you’re still together.
Running into you can spark that further and allow him to finally do something about it.
When you do run into him, act friendly and warm, like you’re meeting an old friend.
Let him take the lead from there.
Other Capricorn Man Questions
How do you get a Capricorn man to fall back in love with you?
Start by working on your friendship with him.
The earthy Capricorn enjoys the comfort and familiarity of that closeness.
Plus, it allows him to reopen his heart without feeling pressured to take a blind leap of faith (which is not the Capricorn’s way).
Maintain healthy boundaries until he’s making moves toward you. Be supportive while continuing to put your own life and goals first.
You always want to be interesting to him, or his feelings will fade fast.
How do you make a Capricorn man obsess over you?
Show him that you’re the other half he’s been looking for.
Find your common values and perspectives and have thought-provoking conversations.
Be in control of your life and work toward goals like financial stability, boosting your career and becoming a respected figure in your field.
Be someone the Capricorn admires while also being humble.

When to give up on a Capricorn man
Considering how loooong it takes for a Capricorn man to face his feelings and let you in, you’ll need a good dose of patience before giving up.
However, if you’ve gotten to a place where nothing has progressed for months and your Cap is still acting aloof, not calling and ignoring you?
This is probably your signal to let sleeping dogs lie.
As we discussed earlier, ignoring a Capricorn is one of the best ways to get him to come to you.
But if he doesn’t and you can’t bring yourself to cut off contact, you should reach out one final time asking to talk to him face-to-face if possible. Then lay out your feelings very honestly and directly.
Give it some time for the Capricorn man to process this.
If it still doesn’t work, it’s probably time to give up.
