If you're interested in dating a Capricorn man it may be best if you take the lead. Capricorn's are extremely cautious in all they do; they are calculating people wanting to know all the risks involved before they take action. This is the Capricorn's approach with love too.
Once you take the initiative, the Capricorn male will usually be a captive audience wanting to evaluate you and the situation before he's asked to risk anything – even the mere time for one date.
In attempts to attract the attention of a Capricorn man you want to be somewhat entertaining and humorous. They are a melancholy breed and need emotionally positive people to uplift a somewhat drab life. Of course, you must be sure not to be unconventional or over the top when impressing a Capricorn; they despise anything that is out of the ordinary or unconventional. Maybe it's because they don't understand it and are unable to formulate a risk factor for eccentricity. Whatever the reason they are far too practical to appreciate an outlandish person.
Practicality is crucial to a Capricorn man. If you want to give them a gift make it one that is useful to him. Spending a lot of money to be showy or on a gaudy gift won't impress him; in fact it will have the opposite effect. The Capricorn man is very good with his money and sees splurging as a complete waste. Don’t make this mistake with him.
Capricorns have interests in the finer things in life; art, theater, music, and anyone or anything intellectually stimulating. If you want to attract the Capricorn man you should focus on topics that are rather serious and display your intelligence in these conversations. Capricorns are drawn to intelligent people and serious conversation.
If you go on a date with a Capricorn man make sure to be on time. Capricorns don't like to waste time or money and being late or wasteful with this man is almost always a deal breaker.
Although on the exterior Capricorns appear cool and aloof deep down under this protective outer shell they are really sensitive and romantic. They have an innate fear of being hurt and unloved. Their hard exteriors have formed as an attempt to protect themselves. Once your good nature, intelligence, and love have broken down this wall you'll find a romantic, caring, and loving man whose love won't stray and will certainly stand the test of time.
