We’ll just come right out and say it, Capricorn men are not really fascinated by the concept of flirtation. That’s not to say they don’t flirt at all; it’s just that they rarely ever do. They’re also one of the shyest signs in the zodiac, so even when they do flirt, you might not notice.
Capricorn men find it difficult to express their emotions because they’re too focused on achieving their goals and dreams; that’s also why they flirt in a very confusing manner.
However, astrology has made things a bit easier, and with proper understanding, you’ll know if that Capricorn man is truly flirting with you or just being friendly.
So, how does a Capricorn man flirt?
Firstly, Capricorn men love connecting with the body and mind, so they’ll get as close to you as possible when flirting. They’ll also text you a lot, make jokes around you, and try to show you how intelligent they’re.
But you’ll need more than these short pointers to know if a Capricorn man is truly flirting with you. This article will fully explore Capricorn men and their flirting patterns.
How Does a Capricorn Man Flirt?
Capricorn men are always serious and hardly have time to chase women. That’s why they are very direct and not into the traditional flirting we know. A Capricorn man won’t call you sweet names or make sweet gestures like men from the other signs. However, he’ll steadily give you compliments.
A Capricorn man can tell you he likes your necklace, and he might actually just like the necklace alone without any flirting intentions. Their directness is one of the reasons it’s difficult to understand them.
But despite all these things, there are still some sure signs you can use to know if a Capricorn is actually flirting with you or just complimenting you.
He Becomes Physically Drawn to You
It’s no secret that Capricorn men like to keep to themselves. But they still have a big heart and value relationships highly. One of their core dreams is to have a solid partner they can return to after a long day at work, someone who can hug and hold them tight.
When a Capricorn man admires you and wants you to know, you’ll notice how close he tries to get to you physically. He’ll try to get closer because he’s not too good with words and likes to use his body as a medium of communication.
So if your Capricorn crush strokes your hair whenever you talk or prefers to touch you instead of calling your name, that might be him trying to send you a message.
As time goes on, a Capricorn man will want to hold your hands in public or put his around your shoulder as a show of support and care. You’ll feel it with every touch if he’s genuinely into you.
He’s Always Texting You
Due to their shy nature, Capricorn men are not particularly good at verbal communication. Especially people they’ve not fully bonded with. This is what makes them terrible flirters.
However, it’s also advantageous because you can know if he’s into you from how he texts you. If a Capricorn man is into you, he will always want to text you. He’ll want to know and understand your thoughts through texts and share a lot with you.
So don’t get discouraged when Capricorn men are always silent around you; it’s not that they don’t want to share things with you; they just find it difficult to express themselves.
If a Capricorn man starts texting you all the time when he wakes or sleeps, then he’s flirting with you.
He’s Making Jokes Around You
Capricorn men hate being in the spotlight; they’re not attention seekers and are mostly introverted. So you’ll hardly find a Capricorn man making jokes, especially around people.
However, this can change when they find someone they like. Once a Capricorn man starts cracking jokes around you, it’s a sign that he wants to see you happy and is ready to go out of his comfort zone to achieve that.
Also, intelligent people make the best jokes, so don’t be surprised when you find yourself laughing uncontrollably when you’re with a Capricorn man who fancies you. They have a great sense of humor, but, like every other emotion in their life, they have difficulty expressing it.
He Shows Off His Intelligence Around You
Capricorn men are very intelligent and witty but don’t like showing it off. They spend their time reading and accumulating knowledge that can help them pursue their goals. Even when they know a lot about the topic discussed in a group, they’ll hardly chip in unless asked.
However, a Capricorn man will show off his knowledge when flirting with you. Their intelligence is precious, and they’ll only show it off when they want to impress someone they like.
But don’t expect them to be all nerdy with you, they don’t like people to think they’re proud, so they show off subtly and mostly when they’re alone with you.
For example, you could both be watching a documentary, and he’ll tell you an interesting fact about it. You can also notice the type of jokes he makes: genius, brain-cracking, and funny.
The Bottom Line
Capricorn men are private creatures that only express emotions when they have to. That’s why you’ll rarely see a Capricorn man flirting or trying to get a woman’s attention.
However, if they really like someone, they’ll go out of their comfort zone to flirt and get the person’s attention. It can be unclear because even as direct as they usually are, you can never tell if they’re flirting or just being themselves.
But there are still signs that you can use to confirm if a Capricorn man is flirting with you. For starters, they flirt with their body and will try to connect with you physically. They’ll also flirt through texts, try to make you laugh, and show off their intelligence around you.
