How to Know if a Capricorn Man is Playing You? 10 Signs!
I know that Scorpios hold the title for being the most mysterious. But they aren't as conniving as the Capricorn. A person born under the Capricorn zodiac sign can do anything to get what they want. They are so driven by their ambitions and need for success, that the cost doesn't matter. Even when the cost is in human emotions. Have you begun to feel that you might be in the same situation? Like your Capricorn boyfriend might be using you. But he will make it extremely difficult for you to figure it out whether he's really in love or just using you. The question then becomes how do you figure out his plan? What are the signs a Capricorn man is using you and not interested in a serious relationship?
Here are 10 clear signs that will tell you if a Capricorn man is playing you!
1. You are not a part of his social circle
While he does spend time with you and take you out on dates, you haven't met his friends. Every time he makes plans with his friends, he leaves you out.
It might so happen that he hasn't even introduced you to his friends. If the latter is the case, then it is a definitive sign that the Capricorn man is using you.
If his friends do know about your existence, that is where the knowledge ends. You haven't spent a lot of time with them. Neither does your Capricorn male seem interested in making it happen.
2. His discomfort about going public is a sign that he's using you
Are you Insta-official yet?
Well, if not, are you guys an official couple in front of your friends?
If the answer to both these questions is no, let me ask you another. What happens when you talk about going public about your relationship? Is he uncomfortable about it?
Well, he could be one of those people who don't like to reveal about their personal life to people.
There's an easy way to figure out if he falls in that category.
Were his friends and colleagues aware of his other relationships? If they were, and his approach has changed towards you, this should make you suspicious about how serious he is about this relationship.
3. The Capricorn man doesn't share much with the woman he isn't interested in
The Capricorn guy isn't a hopeless romantic. He is a very private person too. However, when it comes to the woman he loves, she does tell her things about his life. After all, even the most private person needs a confidant.
So, ask yourself this, how much do you know about him? Do you know more than his friends?
Well, maybe you aren't that ahead in your relationship. But when you ask him things about his life, does he answer? Does he willingly talk to you about his day and what's happening in his life? Does he share his feelings with you?
If the answer is no for all these questions the Capricorn man is not attracted to you. He's just playing you.
4. If romance doesn't exist, he's not serious about you
Like I said before, the Capricorn male is not a hopeless romantic. He isn't very good at making grand gestures. But there is still an element of romance in him. For the woman he loves, the Capricorn man makes an effort.
He would take her out on dates. Buy her gifts. And express his love for you in actions or words. I'm not saying only in the absence of all this should you suspect him. Even if he's playing you, he will do a little bit to keep you interested in him.
But do his efforts feel half-hearted? And there will be eerie randomness of his efforts. Like every time you threaten to leave or question the relationship.
5. No matter how hard you try, you won't be able to change things
And you have tried to bring all of your concerns to his attention. You have told him that you feel ignored. And you have tried to make things better too. But none of your efforts has resulted in change.
A friend of mine who was dating a Capricorn guy once told me that to make things better she would invite him to hang out with her friends. She thought that if she introduced him to her friends, he will do the same.
Not only did he not do as she thought, he never showed up to the events she invited him. He would always make up an excuse to get out of meeting her friends. The relationship lasted 6 months. Sound like your Capricorn male?
6. He loves showing you off, but in private he's very detached
Here's another situation you might find yourself in. Your Capricorn boyfriend is an absolute gentleman to you in public. You know all of his friends and he often takes you out to meet them. He invites you to his office parties too. He loves for the world to know that you are his girlfriend.
But when the two of you are alone, the situation is totally different.
In private, he doesn't seem to care at all. He rarely reaches out to you unless you do it first. Or he needs something. He doesn't pay any attention to you when no one is around. He only uses you to enhance his social standing. Think about what he derives from being associated with you.
7. He doesn't genuinely care for you
This brings me to my next issue. He does all the superficial stuff. Dates, gifts, movie nights, etc. But when it comes down to the more serious stuff, he isn't involved.
Does he check up on you when you fall sick? Worry about your health or bring you nice food when you feel sick? Is he attentive when you talk about your struggles? A disagreement at work or with a friend. Or just anything that upsets you.
That's the sign of a man who isn't genuinely in love with you.
8. You feel that you give more to the relationship than you get
We all hate that feeling. Everyone tells us not to dwell on it. Yet, we still can't get rid of it. The feeling that you are giving more to the relationship than you get in return.
So, what do you do about it?
You analyze your relationship.
I know a lot of people who simply dismiss this feeling when it comes up. And I also know a lot of people who worry about things like this without any reason to do so. The best way to resolve an issue like this is to look at the relationship objectively. If you can't do that, ask your friends what they think about the relationship.
9. There is no place for you in his life
Capricorns in general put their work above everyone else. Even the married Capricorns very rarely make their family a top priority. So, if you aren't his number one priority that's fine. His work and ambitions will always be above you.
However, are you even on the priority list? Does he ever make time for you and your needs? Are your concerns and well being even an issue for him?
10. He flirts around
Capricorns are not known to be cheaters. When they commit themselves to someone, they don't fool around.
But that's not what you are seeing or hearing?
You have heard about his exploits. You see him flirt with other women at parties and other events. Do friends tell you that he's still hung up on his ex-girlfriend? Or that he was hanging out with some mysterious woman? Well, you might want to act on this as soon as possible.
