On first dates, he'll be tuning in to see if there's physical attraction or not. More than anything, that chemistry factor with the tactile senses, is make-or-break for going further. Your presence for him is a feast for the senses if you're lucky. The extra care you take with your clothes, hair, skin, and scent, will all be noted. First Dates With a Capricorn Man But before the first date, he might want to meet under different pretenses. It's also like earth signs to be matter-of-fact about love, and not take it too personally if you're not in sync. It's best to keep things light and casual at first. And being status-minded, the Capricorn guy will be hyper-alert to being seen while out and about. He might go on a date and not call for a good long while. Capricorn guys can be feral when they're attracted to someone, and give in to animal passions. But even if there's chemistry and there's been a night of intimacy, going further into a real relationship isn't something he takes lightly. To win the heart of this cardinal earth sign, you've got to be able to sense the subtle cues. It'll take something akin to a deep earth sounding device, like scientists use to find fault lines and volcanoes. If you're drawn to Capricorn, it's likely that you're also kinda reserved and traditional. The Goat wears the mantle of seriousness, and moves toward being the wise elder, even when young. He's the one with the dry one-liners that sum up a situation, and the one that nobody messes with because they sense his inner strength -- it's palpable. Love Sobriety While first dating, stay calm, don't freak out or dissolve into a giggling fit, if you can help it. But he's the comic straight man, and your looser humor turns you into a comedy duo. The key is to be disciplined with your thoughts and humor, to have a measured approach. If this sounds too structured, then this guy might not be for you. To love a Capricorn is to understand his ambitious nature, and respect him. There's a bit of the father figure in the Capricorn guy. His sign is ruled by serious Saturn, the planet of authority, responsibility, and commitment. But in these traditional gender roles, you get to be the matriarch to his patriarch, so there's a certain side-by-side equality to it. While dating, he's as unreadable as the Sphinx and just as immovable. If you're just playing the field, he'll get wise to that, and shy away. He wants a solid, enduring love, but one that enhances his career, too. He wants a smart, accomplished woman that will make him look good in public. Some dark side Capricorn guys might just see the material, the outer, and want arm candy that'll boost his ego. But a Capricorn ripe for the picking shows interest in your mind and life goals, too, as well as a healthy admiration for your body. He's not afraid of a challenge, and will want you to be your best, and have big dreams of success. He's preoccupied with his life's work, so things flow fresher when you're developing your own talents and have career-sized goals, too. And ideally, you're someone that has graceful ways of breaking the ice, and that's an asset for him socially. If it's backed up by strength of character, your style and sophistication go a long way with him. Man in the Cave The old-fashioned arrangements appeal to the Capricorn man, and the right woman shines by adding the essential flourishes to his foundation. You know how to draw him out of his melancholy moods, by making him feel deeply cherished. But you have the sense of timing, to know when to leave him alone. The Sea-Goat is the ultimate Man in the Cave and needs time to churn within and tune into his own soundings. An early good gift is something that shows respect for the private side of his nature. Like all the earth signs, Capricorn tends to slowly intermingle with you over time. The courtship could take what seems like ages, with no signs that you're making an impression. You've got to have the patience to win the heart of the Capricorn man, and that's a built-in test of whether you're right for him, and he for you. The rewards for hanging in there are exquisite for those that value loyalty and timeless love. The intimacy deepens over time, and your life together becomes more layered and meaningful with the passing years.
