Signs that indicate if a Capricorn is in love
1. A man in love with Capricorn could start to push you away.
Capricorns have a very different mentality when it comes to love. They prefer to be the provider of whatever a woman wants. They assume you know about their feelings. If they trust your love, they would come right out and tell you without beating around the bush. If they are not ready to commit right now, they may even reject you or start ignoring you altogether. They don't take love lightly and only propose to someone they feel will stay with them for a long time.
2. They will start acting strangely
The first thing a Capricorn man who is in love with you will do is start acting strange. The reason for this is that they can't deal with emotions. It will take them a while to realise their love for you. They may feel confused about their feelings for you and try to avoid you altogether. You have to be very patient with them. But once, he acknowledges his love for you; you are in for a very stable and long term relationship. They are the most difficult to understand, as they have a very stubborn nature. You may find that your love acts strange or cold towards you and you may even think that he doesn't like you, but in fact, he is in love with you all the time and cannot handle his emotions.
3. Capricorn men are very shy
Capricorn men do not share their feelings with anyone easily. Capricorn men are shy to express their inner emotions to anyone, and it takes them a long time to trust someone or get close to someone. So, if your man starts sharing his secrets with you or starts talking to you more than before, perhaps, he loves you.
4. A Capricorn man is very possessive
This is one of the most common traits of Capricorn men. Capricorn men don't like anyone to come between their love and sometimes they also take casual
friendships too seriously. You certainly can't take a Capricorn man for a walk. He is completely devoted to his partner, and he expects the same.
5. A Capricorn man will love his woman like he loves his business.
One of the most difficult traits to read is that Capricorns are very sensitive about their love life. Capricorn men take their relationships very seriously, they consider their women as their property and they are also very cautious when dealing with their wives. His woman is very important to him, and he wants to be part of her life in every way.

6. A Capricorn man will not readily admit his love for his woman.
Capricorn men are generally cold-minded and take a long time to admit their love or commit to a relationship. Even if he starts spending a lot of time with his woman, he may still be analysing her, still thinking about the prospects of his life with her and may also reconsider if he feels she is not the one. He might back off if she feels that his wife is not for marriage.
7. A Capricorn man will never flirt.
Capricorns find flirting a big waste of time. They will never try to show you that they like you if they do not. Capricorn men will spend quality time with you, they will be cordial and gentle, but they will never take you for a ride. So, if a man starts talking to you romantically, then he may have genuine feelings for you.
8. A Capricorn man is often reserved.
One of the common traits of a Capricorn is that they are too reserved. However, they are very good caretakers. Capricorn men take time to observe their likes and dislikes and take them into account. It will be a pleasure for a woman to know that her Capricorn man has suddenly started to share his deepest feelings with her. She is in a beautiful relationship with him.
9. A Capricorn man is quite complicated in nature.
A woman needs a lot of patience to get to the level in a relationship where her man starts sharing his likes and dislikes with her. Capricorn men are quite complicated in nature. It may take a while before Capricorn men start sharing their feelings with you. Some women get very frustrated with their reserved nature and also begin to doubt the prospects of a life with them. But all you have to do is be patient and wait for them to open up.
10. A Capricorn man is very realistic.
A Capricorn man knows how to add the element of fun in your life. One of the most obvious traits of love is if your Capricorn man wants to take you out for coffee, dinner or if he wants to go on a trip. Capricorn men know how to keep a relationship going. They can add a lot of excitement and sparkle into a relationship once they know you are the one for them.
11. A Capricorn man shows you his wonderful sense of humour.
Capricorns have a wonderful sense of humour. They love to act funny and make their women laugh. So, if your man starts showing you his sense of humour and starts spending quality time with you, perhaps, he is completely in love with you. Usually shy and reserved in nature, they do not easily show anyone this side of their personality.
12. He asks you to visit his place more often.
A Capricorn man would rarely allow any female companion to enter his private residence. If he asks you to visit his home or personal space more often than usual, then perhaps, he loves you. He wants to spend more time with you and let you into his personal life. They are usually secretive about their personal things and if they are sharing it with you, then consider yourself lucky and adored.
13. Talks about personal things with you
If a Capricorn man discusses his personal business, decisions, life and opinions with you, he is definitely in love with you. He considers you special and wants to make you part of his life.
