Capricorn Man Suddenly Distant

It takes a special kind of bravery for a woman to try taming a Capricorn man. Anyone who ever got to know one of them closely will be able to tell that patience is a prerequisite. It’s true that they don’t like playing games, and a relationship with them is generally straightforward. 

The Capricorn is a complex and intriguing zodiac sign. He has the power to be both dramatic as well as introverted, which makes him difficult to figure out at times. 

If you’ve got a crush on Capricorn man but can’t figure out if he feels the same way? Perhaps it’s because of all these subtle signals that Capricorns give off.

If you want to know what he really thinks about, the Capricorn Man Secrets guide by Anna Kovach will help you win over your man.

Yet, there will be times when his moods will throw you into the deepest wells of confusion. Is your Capricorn man suddenly distant, although you can’t think of anything you might have done to cause this? You should probably get used to this because “distant” is a Capricorn’s middle name. Well, no, that would probably be “Mr. Moneybags.”

In any case, I’ve listed below the main reasons why your Capricorn interest started pushing you away all of a sudden. By the end of this article, you should pretty much figure it out. But, if you don’t, there are a lot more tips on this exact situation in this online guide. It should shed some light on those areas where I couldn’t. 

1. Work has been stressful lately.

There’s nothing quite as important for a Capricorn man as his career. His ultimate ambition is to climb the corporate ladder or build a business for himself. Something he can be proud of and something that will provide for him and his family, with little effort on his part. For this to happen, all Capricorn men work tirelessly, to the point of exhaustion. 

There’s no one as resilient as a Capricorn, but this often takes a toll on him. If he’s been distant lately, you should consider that maybe he’s just tired. He might need a vacation or just a long massage, so he can unwind after a long day at work. 

2. He is worried about providing for you.

Even though these men work so hard, sometimes life gets in the way. Not all Capricorns manage to get wealthy straight out of college, and he might struggle a bit on the financial side. Since much of his self-worth is closely tied to his career, when things don’t go smoothly at work, he might become quite depressed. 

It’s important to remember that Capricorns are quite conservative, which means that he probably believes he’s responsible for providing for you. He might want to give you whatever you wish for or just offer you an easy, carefree life. If things don’t go his way, he might distance himself in order to soothe his ego. Maybe he’s not feeling man enough, which makes him want to isolate himself. 

3. He doesn’t approve of something you did

It’s important to consider that his mood could also have been affected by something you did. Even though these men seem as hard as a drill sergeant, it’s important to remember that, in fact, they are quite sensitive. It’s effortless to hurt his feelings. And, if you do, he will seldom tell you what bothered him. 

Instead, he will go the manly way – “rub some dirt on it.” Instead of expressing what you did to hurt him, he will bottle it up and brood in silence for a while. If you suspect you did something that didn’t sit quite right with you, you could try picking his brain about it. He will feel a lot better if he sees you care enough to ask. 

4. He is caught up in a personal project.

Sometimes, there’s nothing really wrong with your Capricorn man. He might just be caught up in some important work, which doesn’t allow him to spend so much time with you. If he’s taking too long to reply to calls or texts, or if his mind seems to wander, maybe you shouldn’t look too much into it. 

Give him some time, and things might just fix themselves after a while. When he’s invested in an activity that’s important to him, he will be fully focused on that, even to the point where it consumes his thoughts every second of the day. Don’t jump to conclusions. 

5. He needs some alone time.

No matter how committed he might be to your relationship, your Capricorn man needs some alone time once in a while. This has nothing to do with his feelings for you – he just needs to recharge his batteries. These men are loners by definition, and the time he spends alone is the time when he’s the most productive. If you two have been spending a lot of time together lately, he might miss a few days when he can be alone with his thoughts. 

Capricorn men dislike women who are too clingy, so try to figure out if you’ve been taking a little too much of his time from him. If you determine that’s the case, maybe try going for a spa weekend, or just go out with your friends. He might be in a much better mood when you return. 

6. You’re being overly dramatic.

There’s nothing Capricorn men hate more than drama. They just don’t understand the concept. If you’ve got something to say, then you should say it like it is. And whatever the problem might be, he probably thinks you two can have a calm, adult discussion about it. Blowing his phone with calls or texts or putting on a crying performance is the fastest way to make him lose all interest in you. 

So, if he’s suddenly more distant than usual, maybe you should try toning it down with the waterworks.


In a nutshell, if you can’t think of anything you did to cause him to pull away, then the answer is simple. It’s not you; it’s him. And in that case, there isn’t a lot you can do. You should probably just give him some space and wait for his mind to clear up. The best-case scenario implies that he’s just a bit too busy at the moment, which is highly likely with a man that’s always on edge about his job. 

If you want to know how to get inside the mind of a Cap guy, we suggest checking out Relationship Astrologer Anna Kovach’s method in Capricorn Man Secrets. It’s based on his psychology so the techniques’ success is due their power to influence him without making him feel controlled or manipulated.

If all else fails, I suggest you come back to this online guide. It will certainly fill in some blanks, and maybe it will help you understand his reactions a bit better. In any case, try not to make a drama of it, and be there for him if he reaches out for your emotional support.
