The Capricorn is a man who is known for his love of hard work and his ability to knuckle down in both his professional and personal life. Whilst it can be hard to drag him away into a relationship, when he is happy, all is well.
He likes to be in love and whilst he can be opinionated, he does make a nice partner who can be committed and someone you learn to rely on. But sometimes, things can seem to go off track.
When you dated you might have noticed he was hard to pin down and could go off for long stretches of time with no contact. It seems that even when you are happy, he seems to act a little strange.
You may be wondering – does the Capricorn man cheat and if he does, what are the signs that he might be cheating? Let's explore some of the key signs so you know what to look out for. At the end we will offer advice on how to tackle this with him so you can move on – with or without him!
Is the Capricorn a cheat?
The Capricorn is someone very logical who is happy to just carry on with his life and loves never giving too much thought to how he is turned out or to the pleasures of life, preferring to work hard and to drive his way to success. He is happier in a boardroom than a nightclub and he is someone who can never be accused of being lazy.
However, if he is interested in cheating he may well start looking to improve his look and he will focus on grooming himself in order to attract another mate. This could include carving out time for the gym and physical fitness that you haven't seen in a while.
A Capricorn is what is known as a physical cheater who is focused on connecting on a physical level and is less likely to move to someone else in order to chase romance and love , he isn't like a Taurus or a Pisces in this respect. He might be easily tempted by someone as a way to relieve his stress – after all, he is someone who takes life quite seriously and always has his nose to the grindstone. He might be arranging more nights out, be staying longer in bars or might even be visiting strip clubs after work.
This is all a clear sign that he has found someone of interest or that he wants a physical connection. This fits with his method of cheating – as on the whole, the Capricorn is far more likely to be someone that cheats with someone completely out of his usual day to day life, perhaps even someone that he won't see again or has no real connection to.
Highly intelligent, this is one sign who wants to do things properly- and that would even include cheating. You won't be finding any underwear in this guy's car – he is way too smart for that.
2. He is not working as hard
A Capricorn is known as someone who spends most of their time at work and he values success in his life. He looks for women who mimic this and can be just as passionate about work. If the Capricorn in your life has suddenly turned down working opportunities or has stopped working late this could be a sign that his mind is elsewhere and he is interested in someone else. It takes a lot to get a Capricorn away from his desk! This could be a sign that he is meeting up with someone else. If the relationship is not going well, you could see the other side, that he is doing even more work than ever. He throws himself into his responsibilities and when trouble rears its head at home he will be keen to ensure that he is back in his happy place, working on a project that he can control.
3. He seems stressed
Because he is so organized and logical in his life, he can become stressed If he feels on the wrong path. He likes to make the right moves at all times, so if he feels he has been too hasty in entering a relationship with you he might have decided to cheat in order to halt things or to remind himself that he can still be a free agent. He is less likely than other signs to have that romantic vision of his ‘perfect' life and the perfect woman for him so if he cheats he will not be chasing a new wife, but instead just a release and relief. This could be better or worse depending on how you see things!
For whatever reason, the whole process of being sneaky and dishonest in any way will naturally make him seems stressed and he will likely be quite snappy with you and he may seem quite emotionally cold compared to how he usually acts around you. This might show up in his actual presence with you as well. Depending on how serious you two are and if you live together or note, you should know that he is already known as someone that will disappear for great stretches of time whilst he makes decisions and mulls through his options, so if he is doing this with greater frequency this could be a sign that he is checking out of the relationship or thinking over his recent choices and deciding how to proceed.
He isn't someone to upset you just for the hell of it, so there is a chance that if he feels he can get away with cheating and that you have no idea, he might be able to just forget about it and move on, but he will be asking himself if this is the right decision for him and trying to mull this over. Unfortunately, if the Capricorn is in this kind of mood he will be quite selfish and will be looking at things only from his point of view and not from yours as someone who has been cheated on!
4. He won't let go of an issue
Whilst Capricorns are unlikely cheats, that doesn't mean that they can't easily be slighted. If he keeps bringing up old issues and arguments and you sense that he can't get over some issue of betrayal, this could be a sign that he is still ruminating over something you have done and that he might want to take revenge! Look out for signs that he is bringing up old ground and that he seems unable to forgive. This sign is someone who really
5. He won't talk to you as much as before
A Capricorn is very smart and if he has already cheated he will be thinking about ways to cover this up. However, he is not a duplicitous character and he won't be going overboard with flowers and gifts because of his guilt. He likes to think of himself as ethical, so if he has cheated he will be beating himself up a little bit inside. Instead of swooning over you and falling over himself to make amends and to relieve his guilt the Capricorn will be far more likely to clam up and to avoid conversations in any fashion until he feels that he has his head straight. He will be likely to avoid talks about the future and will almost be squirming with displeasure if you mention an upcoming family trip. Look out for signs that he is not wanting to be relaxed and intimate with you. If he can barely sit still and seems to have no interest in his usual habits this is a sign that he has been cheating and can't bear to face up to it.
Is your Capricorn cheating on you?
These are just a few signs that your Capricorn man might be cheating on you and some things that you should be looking out for. As you can imagine, there are plenty of reasons that the Capricorn man might be feeling stressed, quiet and spending more time at work, and cheating isn't necessarily the only reason. However, if you feel that relationship has taken a negative turn, then check in with him and ask him. He will hate the direct question but his face and body language will tell you everything you need to know. After this, it's up to you whether you carry on with the relationship or look to another sign of the zodiac!
