6 Reasons to Date a Capricorn

Capricorn has a reputation for being the hardest-working sign in the zodiac—but what are they like in relationships?

That's what you might be wondering if you're starting to develop feelings for a Capricorn, and lucky for you, we have answers. Keep reading to learn all about the six biggest benefits of dating a Capricorn, and to find out whether a relationship with one might be right for you.

1. They're Dedicated

Dedicated Capricorns aren't just committed to their work, but to their partners, as well. They're well-known for being reliable and trustworthy, as well as really good listeners, whether you're in a relationship with them or not. When Capricorn enters a relationship, it's usually because they're ready to create a steady partnership, so expect faithfulness and to really feel like you're an important part of that person's world. When they feel responsible for you, you'll know it. However, you should also know that they expect the same level of effort and love in return.

2. They're Successful

Capricorn doesn't do all of that hard work for nothing, and they're often quite successful when it comes to academics, career and personal pursuits. A combination of discipline, ambition and know-how usually yields them great results, and they're willing to put in the hours to get things done. Expect them to get good grades, leading to great jobs down the line—though this devotion to work may sometimes come at the detriment to their personal lives. Capricorns also tend to be good with making and holding on to money, so while they'll be sure to treat you from time to time, they're unlikely to go too far overboard with it.


3. They're Totally Classic

Depending on who you are, Capricorn's old-school ways might be a big turn-off or a huge draw. Know that they're a bit traditional, so appearances are important to them. They tend to dress well and will expect their partners to do the same. They're also known for acts of chivalry and will be the first to offer to open the door for you. While there are some occasions where you may want them to get with the times, this can also be super appealing depending on what you want out of your own relationships.

4. They're Realistic

Capricorns always keep it real, so if you're a dreamer who always has your head in the clouds, you might see them as a big Debbie downer. However, if you're also a goal-oriented person who wants to achieve big things, their pragmatism can be a huge asset. They tend to understand exactly what's possible, and how to achieve it, and are strong planners who can help you create your own personal path to success. They'll do what they can to keep you grounded along with them, and together, you may find that you'll be able to accomplish anything.


5. They're Brilliant

Chances are that one of the reasons you're drawn to the Capricorn in your life is because of their smarts. They don't just work hard, but have the knowledge and skill to back it all up. Capricorns tend to be on a never-ending quest for knowledge and wisdom. They're often well-read and full of surprising and unusual information, to the point where just knowing them and conversing with them will often make you feel like you've absorbed some of that knowledge. However, this can also make them condescending know-it-alls, so your mileage may vary.


6. They'll Give You Space (If You Want It)

There's truth to the stereotype that Capricorns tend to be workaholics, and in a relationship with one, if you don't require much from them, most will be more than happy to wholeheartedly pour themselves into their work. That can be ideal for people who require their space and personal time, but if you're a bit needier in that regard, the relationship may not be the best fit unless you can effectively communicate your needs and work out a balance with them. Really, wherever your priorities are, you should get on the same page for a peaceful and happy relationship.
