|Hi! I'm new. I'm Rachel, I'm a Taurus and I'm totally confused by this Capricorn I'm crushing on right now so I thought I'd post a question. I've been doing alot of reading about Capricorns but haven't really seen this question answered. WHO exactly do Capricorn men tend to ignore? Is it usually just people they're romantically interested in? As in, have really strong feelings for? Do they ever ignore people they consider to be just their friends?|
I'm asking cause I just spent some time with a Capricorn and we had a great time together! It was a group situation so we didn't have alot of one-on-one time but there was chemistry between us like crazy. He did alot of things I've read Capricorn men do when they're crushing on some one - he'd watch me when he thought I wasn't looking, he'd get tongue-tied around me at emotional moments, and he'd smile at me in spite of himself (you could tell he was trying not to cause I amused him. I love making him laugh.lol
Anyway, the group situation ended and we may not see each other again for months, not unless one of us visits the other one. So me, trying to keep some kind of contact with him, I sent him an e-mail quite a bit ago but he hasn't responded. It's pretty irritating cause I'd like to keep in touch and I'm surprised that he doesn't but then again, if what I've read is true, he may not be responding cause he's trying to figure out his feelings for me. So yeah, that's my question. Would most Capricorns pull this 'ignore you' stuff with folks they consider to just be their friends or casual acquaintances? I would think most of them would consider that rude and would at least respond just to say hi?
Any insight would be appreciated and from what I've read some of you folks seem to really get how the typical Capricorn works. Thanks in advance!
|i've dated a couple caps recently. i've found there is an art to getting a cap to respond.|
your best tactic is to send them over something that they can respond to quickly, and that they are interested in responding to. maybe that you need advice or help with something. i've had the best results with keeping interaction focused on something - not just chit-chat. so ask for a specific response & see if you get it...
|Hey, Skertzo, thanks for the advice! I'll keep that in mind for the next time I e-mail him but honestly, I don't know when that'll be. I'm still trying to figure out why he didn't respond to me and, as a stubborn Taurus, I'm not really considering e-mailing him until he e-mails me. I'm just not interested in being further ignored.|
|RachelTaurean in the beginning my cappy was the same way..When we were friends,,he was talkative..laughd and joked all the time..but when we started a relationship,,be became very shy. I noticed even now with other female friends he has so much personality..but with me he's very shy and yes I catch him staring at me to..he likes to tex a lot..but I catch him of guard some times and call and he is lost for words or stumble or mumble his words.it does get better..he opens up on occasion. He is talkative when I ask about his job, fav tv show etc.. when I don't talk relationship issues he is very open.. He really response when I ask him to tell me a joke..he loves that. And he never opens his emails.lol Hoped that helped.|
|Thanks for your responses! That's interesting, rchllmr, that your cap is only shy and quiet around you, someone with whom he's romantically involved. That's kind of what I'm trying to figure out about my cap - does his ignoring me (plus all the other stuff I mentioned) mean he's romantically interested or that he's just not that interested in keeping in touch. It's two completely different extremes and I can't figure out which one it is. Until I do, I'm just not that sure I want to contact him again cause if he didnt' respond before because he doesn't want to keep in touch then e-mailing him again will just be me being a nuisance who keeps bothering him. Plus, I don't have his phone number so e-mail is my only option...which stinks if they never check their e-mail.lol Though, I do believe he checks his.|
I'll keeep it in mind though to ask him a specific question if I e-mail him again, I'm just not sure I'm going to. If he doesn't want to keep in touch I need to just accept that, right? It just doesn't make sense to me, we got along so well.
|Yeah, the distance is an issue for me too but again, that would be only if there was a romantic relationship involved. Would he really not talk to me if he considered us just friends?|
The chemistry was awesome!lol
|yes, it's true...we talk to everyone but you. you make us come in contact with those, wait, what do you call them? oh right, emotions! out of all the challenges we go through and put ourselves through, we can confront all of them but that one. that queasiness isn't a job or a problem to fix, it's a feeling. i hope that you get to hang out again. |
i will say that there might be a lot of mindfulness involved, as aforementioned, chit-chat isn't really our bag, unless of course you're talking about specific issues or making jokes or work (of course).
|oh, spontaneity freaks us out sometimes too. best to have a plan.|
|RachelTaurean Warholian is right on with her advice...I said that he was that way in the beginning..he does tex me now everyday single day. . when we call each other, we have normal conversation,,but in the beginning he was really shy..He still is shy on some issues.. but Ive learned his ways a lot. We still have things to work on. but he is really a nice guy..he's very forgiving and fair. Cheap he's not..lol..just telling you it's a good thing that's he's shy for right now..shows he likes you..What I had to learn? just go with the flow.|
|Thanks for all the replies, especially warholian, you really answered my question. It just didn't make sense to me that he'd ignore me if he saw me as just a friend cause that would be plain rude and he doesn't seem like a rude guy. Like, I can't imagine him ignoring anyone else from the group. But, if he's a typical Capricorn and really does have romantic feelings for me then, okay, the ignoring bit starts to make sense. Though I don't totally get why you wouldn't want to talk to somebody you're attracted to. Seriously, why are caps so afraid of their emotions?! If you like someone, wouldn't you WANT to talk to them as much as possible? I can understand being afraid of falling in love but still.|
I really like this guy but there are all kinds of obstacles we'd have to face if we were in a relationship, distance being just one of them. But of course I don't want to waste this amazing chemistry so I was trying to keep in touch with him at least as friends cause I'd like to keep him in my life in some capacity. But then, he didn't respond. Not sure what to do at this point but wait. It's nice to know, though, that he may not be ignoring me cause he doesn't want to keep in touch but because he's really interested and just nervous. It's nice to think he may contact me sometime in the future and that it's not totally over. I'd like to think he's thinking about me as much as I'm thinking about him.
**what do you call them? oh right, emotions! out of all the challenges we go through and put ourselves through, we can confront all of them but that one**
Caps seem to have an incredible ability to compartmentalize their emotions. It's like life throws so many obstacles in their path and yet they are not allowed to give up, crumble and lie down in a fetal position. So they learn to put aside their emotions in order to get the job done. And they very often have to do this because they know that on their shoulders lies the responsibilities for many others.
I often liken them to the seemingly umemotional samurais; no emotions but full of honor and dedication. A curious thing about these Caps is that they also behave like ninjas; they do things in the darkness and then quietly disappear into the shadows...in sharp contrast to the forthright samurais. I liken this trait to the Cap's dual nature (Earth + Water --- half-goat/half-fish)
This could be one of the reasons why Caps always seem to be so busy. They're always doing something behind the scenes.
I think poor Caps learn early in childhood NOT to show any emotions because it gets in the way of survival. Almost every Cap I know (especially the men) have had some sort of childhood trauma abyss that they had to climb, claw and wrestle their way out of.
You may have also noticed that in times of emergencies, everyone else will be running about like headless chickens but the Caps will calmly get out the hose and put out the fire. Can't do that when you are emotional.
|As another poster mentioned, if we are into you, they are not likely to be able to stop messaging you. the toughest part is to get them to give a butter. or at least it is for me. out of sight out of mind. so my suggestion is remember that.|

have you thought about success? we WORRY a lot about everything, by not in an emotional way (that comes later when we're way too hard on ourselves). i know we fear failure more than anything, what if we say something stupid to mess it up?
"A curious thing about these Caps is that they also behave like ninjas; they do things in the darkness and then quietly disappear into the shadows...in sharp contrast to the forthright samurais."
at one of my old jobs they used to call me a ninja because i would get things done all the time without anyone ever even noticing...i kind of approach everything in this way, always busy, always something going on...thinking...
"I think poor Caps learn early in childhood NOT to show any emotions because it gets in the way of survival."
like i said, i get younger with age.
"You may have also noticed that in times of emergencies, everyone else will be running about like headless chickens but the Caps will calmly get out the hose and put out the fire."
just last week i had to "put out a fire" and it was a big one. i felt like a sheep herder, and was the only one with any self control. i do hope you get to spend more time together, we're really up for anything if you can pin us down for a few hours.
|"I think poor Caps learn early in childhood NOT to show any emotions because it gets in the way of survival."|
because telling people how i really feel givs them too much information. especially with enemies. cruelest thing a person can do to an enemy is make that enemy love them.
seriously, i'd say, if you ever see a capricorn get emotional, gtfo of there, because apparently they lost control. but that's not universal.
|my point exactly. |
"Do they ever ignore people they consider to be just their friends?"
Depends, once the "i'll never treetrunk/love you" flag has been raised, i cut off any ideas of being with them.
like some awkward crap i had to go through with a "friend" of mine. for years she says im like a brother, then suddenly says she has a crush on me. its like, ummm didn't we already write this off as not going to happen? and gets shocked that i dont quickly bound to her because she's hot.
be sure you arent coming off creepy, or just say treetrunk it and find someone who responds.
"WHO exactly do Capricorn men tend to ignore?"
not sure about the others, but for me, the list is:
Anyone who annoys me;
Anyone i find creepy; //see annoy, and yes, some women do come off as creepy.
anyone who bores me;
anyone that isn't useful to me;
basically being completely unconcerned to everyone until someone actually stands out to me, or absolutely demands my attention (which is a bad thing).
maybe he just doens't think it can work, or isn't worth the effort. byt gl waiting for a definite answer. speaking our true thoughts doesnt seem to be common, unless we're pissed off.
