Trying to get a Capricorn guy to lust for you? It’s not as simple as acting cute and sexy.
Here’s how to make a Capricorn man want you:
- Dress and act like a mature woman
- Always be sweet, feminine and just a little bit sexy
- Have your life together and set long-term goals
- Feed his desire for status and recognition
- Be attentive, but don’t smother him
Be careful, though! If a Capricorn man ends up seeing you as a friend with benefits, good luck changing his mind.
You’ll need to know his psychology and get inside his mind, which a guide like Anna Kovach’s Capricorn Man Secrets will teach you.

How to Make a Capricorn Man Want You
1. Dress like a mature woman
Capricorn guys are attracted to women who look like they could be your boss.
They’re not very into the girlish look or anything that looks cheap, frilly or overly sexual.
Instead, they’d prefer to lech over a woman who commands respect by the way that she dresses.
In his mind, she’d be like a present to unwrap.
Wear nice fabrics and sophisticated styles that hug your body in ways that show off your curves, but don’t scream “Look at me.”

2. Don’t be wishy-washy
The last thing a Capricorn man wants to deal with is a woman who can’t keep her promises.
If you say you’ll be somewhere or accept a date, don’t break it and go MIA.
Capricorns are big on trust and reliability, and even the hottest woman can make a Cap run the other way if she seems like a flake.
If you have to break your plans, make sure you give a good explanation.
And in general, try to act in a way that shows you can be decisive.
3. Be sweet
You can charm a Capricorn man with your sweet side.
Even though he can be dark and brooding, he really needs that counterbalance of a woman who is kind and gentle with him.
Smile at him a lot!
Have nice things to say to him, and keep a positive attitude around him.
Show him that you’re a polite person who wouldn’t hurt him (or anyone else, for that matter) intentionally and he’ll open up enough to develop a crush on you.
4. Be a hard worker
What does a Capricorn man want? A woman who works.
And a woman who works hard, at that.
Ambition turns him on. If you want something more long-term with him, you’ll have to come close to his own ambitious nature—so you may have your work cut out for you.
Capricorns are empire builders, and they like money, career stability and status.
You don’t have to be running your own company when you meet a Capricorn man. But you should put the effort into making the most of your chosen career.
5. Have some dry wit
Capricorns have senses of humor that range from dark and spooky to bone-dry.
Most of their jokes are going to be subtle one-liners, zingers and slow-burners.
If you really want to catch a Cappy’s attention, be ready to play off of his humor.
He likes when a woman can keep up. It shows that she’s clever, quick-witted and just a little bit sassy.
6. Don’t let your appearance slip
As image is very important to the Capricorn man, it’s wise to maintain your own at all times.
This means keeping regular appointments with your hair stylist and ironing the wrinkles out of your clothes.
And never opting for the baggy, stained gym clothes in the back of your closet, even to run out to the grocery store.
Capricorn man cares about what you look like not only to him, but to everyone else.
Remember, status is important to him.
7. Text him
Should you initiate a texting conversation with a Capricorn man?
Absolutely, yes—go for it!
The Capricorn male needs to know that you desire him. Otherwise, he’s not going to go out on a limb and risk looking foolish trying to get you.
More importantly, he’s not going to waste his precious time that he could spend working…or bagging a woman who is more receptive to him.
8. …But don’t over-text
Here’s a big texting rule: do not go crazy with your texts.
Text him once and wait for a reply. Don’t double-text.
If he doesn’t answer, let it go. For a few days if necessary.
He may reply later with an apology for being unavailable. But one thing is for sure—if you hound him, he’s going to think that’s weird and pull away.
Anna Kovach has a great section all about how to text a Capricorn man (and how not to text him) in her Capricorn Man Secrets guide.
9. Keep emotions in check
Capricorns get a bad rap for being cold and unemotional.
This is not totally off-base—they can come across as cold because they don’t like putting their emotions on display. And they’re far too logical-minded to know how to respond to dramatic displays of feelings.
Sure, a Capricorn needs you to open up to him if he’s going to develop feelings.
However, if you’re trying to get him to want you, you’ll need to make sure you’re not scaring him off with big, dramatic tears or confessions of your undying love…at least not at first.
10. Show how rational-minded you are
When you’re talking to the Capricorn man, be sensible and down-to-earth.
Steer clear of impassioned speeches, and instead opt for logic and reason.
You want to prove yourself to be cool and collected, not hot under the collar.
Capricorn guys admire a woman who thinks for herself and leads with her rationality, not emotion.
11. Have a long-term plan
Goals are hot to Capricorns.
Have a plan for your future—where you’re going in your career, how much money you want to make, if you’re going to buy a house.
These kinds of things may sound boring and unimportant to some, but they’re music to the responsible Capricorn’s ears.
Earth signs need stability and practicality, and Capricorn especially wants to know that you can take care of yourself.
12. Be sexy and sensual
Capricorn men are highly attracted to a woman with a slow-burning sexual nature.
Smile at him and turn away coyly after telling him a sassy little joke.
Don’t forget to dab on some great-smelling perfume before you meet up with him.
Don’t be afraid to have your own brand of sexiness, but just make sure it’s not over-the-top. Subtlety is key.
13. Show you’re desirable on social media
Are you on social media?
Keep posting those cute selfies.
Update the world on what you’re out there achieving, and put your best qualities on full display.
When your Capricorn man sees how people respond to you, he’ll want to covet you all the more.
14. Entice him with intelligent conversation
Capricorns are into smart women.
You can show off your smarts by elevating boring old chit-chat to a discussion about something that matters.
That could be current events, literature or a topic that you know the Capricorn is passionate about.
Let him share his opinions and even show off his intelligence a little—he likes that.
However, you should make sure you’re keeping an active role in the conversation, too.
Showing that you have an opinion will spark his interest and fuel his desire.
15. Don’t hang on him
Are you independent enough for a Capricorn man?
He really needs you to have your own life. If he fears that you’re going to be a drain on his time and energy, he’ll stop calling.
You should have your own friends to hang out with and a schedule to keep.
When you’re around him, try not to come across as desperate or clingy.
Just be your cool, awesome self, show some interest in him and let him come to you.
16. Play up your femininity
Though Capricorn is a feminine sign, the Capricorn man is rather masculine in his personality and attitude.
And he really likes a feminine woman to balance him.
Show your femininity in the way you dress as well as the way you are with him.
Wear a soft, pretty top under your blazer at work. Show him your nurturing side.
Being sweet, friendly and ladylike goes far with a Capricorn man.
17. Show how you admire him
Though Capricorn guys aren’t full of themselves, they certainly don’t undervalue themselves.
They know what they’re good at and they appreciate your appreciation for it.
Next time you’re talking to your Cappy, ask him about something he knows a lot about, or something you know he’s successful in.
Ask him for a little of his advice on it to show that you recognize his status and know-how.
That’s sure to get him feeling good about himself—and his prospects with you.
18. Don’t feed into his trust issues
Unfortunately, Capricorns tend to have knee-jerk reactions to any hint of competition from other guys.
They need to know that you’re not open to another man’s advances, period.
Even if you aren’t dating the Capricorn and you owe him nothing, he might shut the door on any potential romance with you if he gets wind that you’re still on Tinder while you’re talking to him.
It’s a dicey move at best.
Better to show that he can trust you and not have to worry about what you’re up to when he’s not with you.
