He is responsible and faithful, and it may be even felt like he was the one, even though now it possibly seems more like he is the one who got away.
But do not let this be the end of your love story. There are sometimes hidden reasons why a guy with this zodiac sign is distant.
Read on to discover what to do when a Capricorn man ignores you, and also proven tips to help you subtly, get him to focus his attention on you.
What Does it Mean When a Capricorn Man Ignores You?
You have probably been running this question through your mind endlessly, jumping from one conclusion to the next. Below are some likely reasons for your Capricorn man’s sudden disappearance or seemingly lack of interest in you.
You Have Upset Your Capricorn
For as much as Capricorns hate conflict, they seem to have no problem being combative. More than likely, if he is mad at you, he has taken the passive route to express it.
He is stubborn and does not forget. He has a way with words and cutting people with them, in which case it might be for the best he is ignoring you right now. It is his unwavering steadfastness that allows him to ride out grudges to the very end.
With that said, he is a sucker for sincere apologies and people who right their wrongs, or what he perceives as their wrongs anyway.
He is Having a Depression Bout
While Capricorns are not known to sulk forever, they are world-famous for their streaks of moodiness. His intelligence matched with his judgments and high expectations give way to feeling blue on occasion.
Also, the dark side of Capricorn manifests itself as pessimism. All of these things combined can get him really down, even if he never shows it on the surface.
But as far as resilience goes, Capricorn guys take first prize. It is not difficult, nor does it take very long for this guy to get back on his feet again.
He is Unsure About the Relationship
Capricorns can get kind of weird when they are unsure about a relationship. This is because the man is mindful and does not want to do anything to progress things if he is not comfortable with it.
He knows that his relationships are always long-term and refuses to toy around with them if he is unsure.
This is not a bad thing entirely. The Capricorn is cautious. Likely, he has done this with his other relationships.
He is highly committed and takes his sense of duty seriously. He may just need some time before he can go “all in” like you might want him to do this very second.
The Capricorn male tends to have a clear picture in his mind of how he sees himself in a relationship. He needs to feel wanted but not smothered.
The thing that makes a Capricorn man happy is earning respect by encouraging his genuine ability to provide. This basic emotion to feel wanted, which he keeps hidden, can be overlooked by a woman in modern relationships.
However, a clever woman understands this hidden desire and knows how to trigger a man’s subconscious mind to re-focus his attention back on her.
Sounds way out? I thought so too until I started receiving many letters from delighted women who had achieved true love by understanding the one main thing a Capricorn man wants from a relationship. You may also be surprised to know that it is not sex!!!

We all get busy, but the Capricorn stays that way. He likes routine and typically will not feel at ease unless he has filled in every blank space on his schedule.
