What to Do When a Capricorn Man Ignores You?
If you are dating, going out or even married to a Capricorn man, this is the most important thing you will ever read. Does that sound like a stretch? Well, you more than anyone else will need the following advice. The Capricorn man can often lose himself in his own life and forget his better half. It isn’t unusual for their partners to feel ignored. “Sometimes I started questioning my own existence,” is how a very melodramatic friend of mine explained it to me once. But you get the gist of what she was trying to say, right? I'm sure I have your attention now. Do you want to know what to do when a Capricorn man ignores you, is being cold or acting distant all of a sudden?
Here’s how you should react when a Capricorn man is ignoring you or going silent and how you can get him back!
Before we enter a panic mode, there is one thing you need to understand.
The Capricorn man can get carried away by emotions some times. You are probably just experiencing him coming to senses. He might have been exceptionally charming and now has gone completely cold. That’s probably because now that the surge of emotions has washed away, he wants to make sure you are the right woman for him. Now, let’s move to other reasons why Capricorn man is suddenly distant.
He probably feels he needs more personal time and space. You could be the least demanding girlfriend, but the man born under the Capricorn Zodiac sign has different priorities. His work and ambitions are the topmost priority for him. If he ever feels like anything else is taking up the time dedicated to working, he panics. Rather than talking about it, he will disappear.
Similar to this situation is when he is so deep in work that he forgets he has people around him. It's nothing personal, really. He just is a very dedicated man. Maybe stress at work is taking most of his time. In situations like these, he will tend to disappear. But don't worry, he will resurface eventually. You will have reason to worry if this silence begins after a difficult period.
Did he seem agitated, upset or angry before he started ignoring you? If yes, then this is his way of avoiding more confrontations. Now, the question to be asked here is, why was he agitated or upset in the first place? He probably noticed some behavior he doesn’t approve of. There are certain expectations that the Capricorn man has of the people around him. When they don’t meet these standards, he either confronts them or ignores them. You might want to discuss this with him.
Now that we have understood why do Capricorn men withdraw, let's dig deeper, shall we? What to do when a Capricorn man is distancing himself and pulling away or when he stops talking to you? I know that for most of us, the default move is to make him jealous. Let me give you a piece of advice.
Do not do anything that makes the Capricorn guy mistrust you. If you want a healthy relationship, then making him jealous won’t work. He doesn’t easily trust people. If you lose his faith in you, there is no way for you to get him back.
This is a test that you can pass by showing him that you are his ideal woman. If you want to make him regret his behavior, make him question his reason to ignore you. And how is that done? Be the perfect woman that a Capricorn male dreams of having in his life. He will start wondering why he is distancing himself from you.
You will have to be patient because he will take his time. I know that it is difficult to wait. But here’s how you know if your patience is helping you or harming you. If things don’t seem to change or are getting better, then being patient is effective. Are things getting worse between the two of you? Then you need to take action.
The best way to do that is a mature conversation. Now you can’t just go up to him and be like, “Hey! Something’s wrong. We’ve got to talk”. That will make him put up his defenses.
Engage him in a normal conversation and then casually segue into telling him that he has been a little off lately. Ask the reason for that. The conversation will be a lot productive from that point onward.
The Capricorn man’s texting habits are weird. He won't always be the guy who used to respond immediately as he did in the initial days. If he’s ignoring you and not responding to your texts, that kind of makes things difficult. It is easy to get misinterpreted over text. So, you have to play this right.
Don’t bombard him with texts or messages. It is easy to get lost in emotions. To feel that the more you text him the more likely he is to respond. But when it comes to this man, this kind of behavior will push him further.
If it gets too much, let him know that although you are here for him, you won’t be sitting around waiting for him. You need to be assertive. Remember that this is a game of earning his respect. And if you know what you want and can assert it, you will come out as a winner.
Give him his space and time, that is the best you can do. If he is coming back to you, then all that you have done so far should be enough. You cannot force a Capricorn man into behaving the way you want him to. Don’t let this sour you though.
Whenever you text him, make sure that you are always firm, not mean. It is important to establish that you aren’t dependent on him. That you are a strong woman who doesn’t depend on the men in her life for happiness. But don’t cross the line between being firm and being mean.
We have covered the answer to “what to do when a Capricorn man ignores you or goes silent”. The best strategy is to let the Capricorn male come to his senses. Yet, for how long will you have to wait? Here’s a list of signs that will tell you if a Capricorn man is not interested in you anymore.
He seems to get annoyed by everything that you love. He no longer cares about your interests and passions. Not only is he disinterested. He even gets irritated by your life.
This will lead to him avoiding you altogether. He wouldn’t make plans with you. He will do anything to ignore and avoid you. All of your efforts to get him to engage will fall flat.
Being in the same vicinity as he wouldn't be of much use either. If you think that being around him will make things better, think again. If he’s done with you, then you could be sitting next to him and there will be permanent silence.
Physical intimacy will completely exit your relationship. Even if you try, he won’t respond. And if you ask me, you deserve a lot more than a man who doesn’t value you for the amazing person you are. So, quit this relationship before he can, and find the man who is right for you!
