1) Be serious about your intentions.
2) Support their ambitions.
3) Be fun and kind to her.
4) Show that you are reliable.
5) Don't be too curious with her.
Capricorn women love a good seduction, but clichés won't bring you much success. Instead, she is much more impressed by your knowledge, your wit and your ability to attract her. Your words are what will win her over, rather than the prospect of what might happen physically.
You are not likely to let your imagination about who or what you might be cloud your judgement about who or what you really are.
This slightly more logical approach makes her cautious when it comes to love: she will take her time and assess whether you are really worth the time and effort before letting you in.
The usual methods of seduction will not go very far either. Small talk and superficial jokes do not interest him. He is much more interested in practical matters such as work and money. He will also like a comment that shows how considerate you are.
Although Capricorn women are interested in you as a person, you should make an effort in your appearance, taking care to dress well and be well groomed when you are with her. Her reserved nature makes her hate being ridiculed or teased, so avoid making her the butt of your jokes until she has at least warmed up to you.
To really impress a Capricorn woman, you must be able to show your ambitions in a credible way. Her goal-focused mentality means she needs a man who is on the same page as her.
If you don't have the wealth or position to be able to facilitate this, you must be willing to put in as much effort as she does. She is looking for someone with the strength to support her; if she is a sportswoman, you will have to be her only cheering squad!
One way to do this is to outline your career goals for the next decade: don't just say what you want, but also how you are going to do it.
This shows him that you are a methodical thinker as well as a driven one. He needs to see that you will be able to push each other and achieve greatness together.
It is fair to say, then, that Capricorn women are attracted to those who have a career and are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed in life. If anything, she will reaffirm what you have told her.
If you do the opposite - waste time on less productive activities - her opinion of you will diminish. She wants someone like her; someone who represents an idea or tradition to which she feels an allegiance, whether ideological, religious or cultural.
The notion of the importance of getting the approval of a girl's best friends is truer than ever when it comes to Capricorn women.
Rest assured that she has few friends, but they are all as tough as she is. Make a good impression in front of these people and you will be well on your way. This also applies to family values: Capricorns have strong family values, so show this to her: she will feel a greater sense of security knowing that being united as a family is important to you.
You must remember that Capricorns are cautious by nature and will often take a long time to make a decision about something as serious as a relationship.
Don't wait for her to take the first steps, be proactive and show her that you are the man who will give her what she is looking for.
What your Capricorn woman is looking for in a relationship depends on her age, income and level of maturity.
So, if you are courting a young Capricorn woman who has not yet established her professional life, she may end up being more attracted to a slightly older man, as he can help her get to where she wants to be because of his wealth and position in society.
His innate independence means he has his own opinions and responsibilities, and this in itself needs space, so give him space and time.
On the other hand, an older Capricorn woman may be attracted to a man for his looks more than anything else.
Capricorns generally have to overcome their materialism, and once they do, they are more likely to be attracted to a man who appreciates their intelligence, helps them achieve their goals, and matches their physical attractiveness and energy.
His ambitious and hard-working nature can sometimes come at the expense of personal time, so don't feel too hurt if he cancels a date at the last minute - that's just the way it is.
Reaffirming and encouraging her career goals and achievements when you are with her will be greatly appreciated. Remember that she wants someone who works at least as hard as she does.
You will be her pillar of strength, cheering her on from the sidelines as she crushes her targets. As long as you do your part and take care not to hinder her natural leadership, you will reap the benefits of her sexy side, so don't be too needy or expect too much from her.
Whatever you do, you should never confess your love for a Capricorn woman right away. Overzealousness is also to be avoided, so resist the temptation to pursue her day and night. Rather, mention fleetingly that you enjoy her company, but don't push too hard.
You may also be tempted to talk big about your success stories and wealth. Don't. Have little tolerance for those who talk big with nothing to back it up.
They don't believe anything they hear and half of what they see. Show an open mind and back up what you say, after all, fundamentalists and narrow-minded people are hard for her to tolerate.
The Capricorn woman believes wholeheartedly in responsibility. Therefore, she is the type who will start saving money from a very early age in an attempt to ensure long-term stability. She will be repulsed by any man who shows any sign of irresponsibility, especially in the financial sense.
Impulsive spending on meaningless possessions will quickly drive him away from you. Instead, if you must splurge, do so on gifts that have feeling and meaning, as this will be a much better expenditure of your resources in his books.
Somewhat frustratingly, Capricorn women react differently to those who dream big, depending on who you are to them.
Friends whose boundaries in life seem to be non-existent get his full support, but he will never choose such a person as a partner. Why? Because it threatens her security: she wants well-thought-out plans and stability, not lofty delusions without knowing how to get there.
His focussed temperament means that being late is a big problem. His desire for reliability is the reason for this, so you have to show him that you are reliable and can provide the solid foundation he is looking for.
He is also not too impressed by flowers or arbitrary gifts - his love cannot be bought - but if you have to buy him a gift, buy him something practical or meaningful, it will carry much more weight.
By nature, Capricorn women are cautious and calculating, which makes them difficult to seduce. The key is that Capricorn women want to succeed, so they rarely do things by halves.
With this in mind, you must take your time and be serious in your intentions. She is practical, goal-focused and not interested in beating around the bush. She does not apologise for being outwardly reserved, but lets everyone see her complex mix of practicality, endearing modesty and self-discipline. If you get to know her a little better, she may let you see her fun and sexy side.
His focused attitude should not be mistaken for being snobbish, quite the opposite: he is a very loyal and warm soul, who lets very few trespass his reserved exterior.
However, he has a naturally stubborn personality, so he rarely strays from his path. This enables her to cope with any situation or personal tragedy, as she is very independent. She is often an excellent leader because of these traits.
This dogged determination means that Capricorn needs financial security and stability in her life. To help make this happen, she is incredibly organised and never fails to take the initiative.
Her personality is characterised by two sides, often opposite to each other. For example, she can be reserved and outgoing at the same time. However, she is optimistic by nature and is a constant source of encouragement to those around her.
He knows exactly where he is at all times thanks to his analytical and meticulous nature, which gives him a highly developed insight into his own psyche.
Once you know how to do it, attracting a Capricorn woman is not difficult. But make no mistake, this does not mean it will be an easy road, as you will have to put in a lot of work.
Although she is as romantic as anyone else, she often prefers not to be as expressive with her emotions.
She prefers to show her love through practical tasks to help her loved ones, rather than more "traditional" gestures. Although some people may see this as cold and unemotional, in reality she is just shy.
His cautious nature keeps him from approaching you immediately, so don't be put off if he interacts with you in a purely platonic way at first. However, once you win his heart, his loyalty and support will be unquestionable.
While he probably won't idolise you or look at you with rose-coloured glasses, he will provide you with the most solid foundations.
After all, her own focus and drive help her to see and respect your own goals, even if that is detrimental to the time you spend with her.
