Anyone in relationship or has been with a capricorn man?

I have fallen badly for a capricorn man, still early days (few months) but I have never felt this way before!

I have been feeling a little lost and at times not knowing where we are heading despite us talking a lot about being together and wanting the same thing..... But I have begun to notice a patten in his behavior

Things seem to go well and we make progress, take a step forward in our relationship then suddenly he almost does the ignore/avoiding on me for usually around a week, in this time I only hear from him every few days and it's alway just a polite text to let me know he is still about or it's a sorry text to say sorry haven't been in contact

Then suddenly he appears back we have a chat, we both want the same and we take a step forward again!

Now you can imagine when this happens I think "what the hell is going on" but know I have come across online information about caoricorns and all the traits are him to a tee!

Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and how they dealt with it

Astrology is made-up rubbish.

MrsGradyOldLady Sun 22-Nov-15 11:37:40

I don't really believe on all that star sign bollocks. However, I have had serious (ish) relationships with 3 Capricorn men and all 3 were nasty narcissistic bastards grin

What star sign are you? We need a full picture of the dynamics between both of your signs.

MaisieDotes Sun 22-Nov-15 11:40:25

It's not really down to him being a Capricorn. It's down to him being a dick.

The reason you are feeling this way is because you're getting hooked on the rush that you get when he comes back after he disappears.

Sorry to be so blunt but I have been there. There's no mystery to these men.

Oh, come on!

MajesticSeaFlapFlap Sun 22-Nov-15 11:46:38

Have him March naked round Stonehenge with a spoon in his mouth and marmalade on his balls

He will be a changed man by Monday



It's all woo

Fluffybrain Sun 22-Nov-15 11:48:50

It's a controlling thing not a Capricorn thing.

Fluffybrain Sun 22-Nov-15 11:50:09

Haha majestic. That's brilliant!

RiceCrispieTreats Sun 22-Nov-15 11:52:16

So you're wondering why you feel destabilised and confused, dating a man who blows hot and cold.

It's because he blows hot and cold.

Just end it: if he were properly into you, and properly able to have a stable relationship, you wouldn't be writing here for advice.

If you hang on to this relationship, you're just going to get more of the same. It doesn't feel nice now, does it? It won't feel any nicer later. End it, no-one needs this bullshit in their lives.

It's not because he's a 'Capricorn' it's because he's an arse.

I have twins, born in the same day. Obviously have the same star sign.

Radically different personalities.

DelphiniumBlue Sun 22-Nov-15 11:59:41

Is it fair to say its him, his issues etc? You've only been together a few months, but you're expecting contact more often than every few days all the time?
Do you expect to be in constant contact? Have to say, that would drive me nuts and I would find it suffocating.
Maybe back off a little, be out of contact yourself sometimes, not to play games but because its too soon for your life to revolve around him.

Arfarfanarf Sun 22-Nov-15 12:02:56

rocks in space do not determine someone's personality or how they treat you. Remove this silly star sign rubbish and look at how he as an individual is treating you.

He blows hot and cold and walks all over you. This is not someone you want to be with, no matter what his date of birth. He doesn't behave like this because of the day he was born, he behaves like this because he is a cock.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 22-Nov-15 12:04:13

I'm a Capricorn and I'm perfectly lovely.

You dump them and move on.

I think you'll find the astrology shit is something to do with Uranus.

goodnightdarthvader1 Sun 22-Nov-15 12:08:28

Fucking hell.

I'm a Capricorn, I never behaved like this with my DH.

Get your head out of the clouds.

Fluffybrain Sun 22-Nov-15 12:09:57

Yes it is fair to say it's him and his issues. You are allowed to have expectations within a relationship however long it's lasted and boundaries on how you are treated by a man. The pattern of behaviour you have noticed is a controlling one. Forget looking up star signs online and look up patterns if behaviour of controlling and emotionally abusive men. Then you might be able to make sense if him and how he makes you feel.

LockedBox Sun 22-Nov-15 12:10:32

How can the date of your burth possibly have any bearing on personality traits? It literally makes no sense at all.

Please don't try to find excuses to explain this mans failures. The reason he's being an arse is because he's an arse.

Cabrinha Sun 22-Nov-15 12:12:28

Good lord, if you genuinely are asking this, about star signs, then in all seriousness you're not mature enough to be dating.

category12 Sun 22-Nov-15 12:19:51

Really? confused

You need to place responsibility for a person's behaviour on the person, not their star sign.

LockedBox Sun 22-Nov-15 12:46:10

Burth! I am aware that's not how it's spelled.

CalonDu Sun 22-Nov-15 13:17:19

No, no, no. You've got it all wrong. Those are classic Gemini man traits - flitting off, being emotionally and literally unavailable, then getting back in touch via text. At a push, they're Sagittarian if the reason he keeps vanishing is because he's temporarily moved in with someone else, or decided to backpack across Patagonia.

Capricorn man traits are grilling you about your promotion strategy, checking you've invested your annual ISA allowance in the best performing wraps, and covertly looking up your house on Rightmove to see how the local area's gone up since you bought it.

It's all bollocks.

Robotgirl Sun 22-Nov-15 13:21:54

I went out with a Capricorn. He was a dick. And I went out with a Virgo. He was a dick. And I went out with an Aquarius. You've guessed it.
I'm now going out with a Gemini. He's a diamond.
It's not about him being a Capricorn, is it?

Cabrinha Sun 22-Nov-15 13:31:41

CalonDu you really made me laugh, cos that ISA check up stuff is proper (though bullshit) Capricornian. Full marks for accuracy!

Are you for real? I mean seriously. Are you for real?
