Unlike many signs, Capricorns aren't likely to fall hard and fast, usually preferring to fall into 'friendship' first. Once friendship is established and they are more comfortable, then if/when physical attraction exists, things progress from there. Capricorns make friends slowly and can be seen as somewhat aloof to those not in their inner circle, which of course can pique serious interest in the challenge this presents. Securing their affections may be a slow process but it is just a generic form of getting to know you and feeling comfortable which they need.
Once they are interested and at ease, they are steadfast in their need to have a relationship. Capricorns can be stubborn and this serves them well as they generally succeed in attaining what they want. Slow and steady is their way in the romance department.
Capricorns are very serious minded about their future and security. This makes their choice of mate a serious consideration for them. They are less likely to quickly give in and break up when the going gets tough, as once they've invested time and effort in a relationship they feel morally compelled to stick with it.
If the connection is a true one, your Capricorn will loyally help you to make a life together. Devoted parents, they are known to think ahead and appreciate the stability that having long term plans offers.
Generally speaking, Capricorns can be very loyal to their loved ones. They at times have inferiority complexes which can make them prone to feeling "less than", leaving them open to attentions from other parties if they feel neglected at home.
Trust is very important to Capricorns. Because they can tend towards pessimism, having a partner they can depend on is of immense value to them. They appreciate a steady, responsible partner.
Capricorns are known for their determined ambition. They make good partners for someone whose goals are of long range material stability. Although Capricorns can sometimes be called materialistic, this need derives from their deep rooted need of stability and their own responsible need to ensure stability for themselves and their loved ones (offspring).
Because they are careful about their self-image, they are less likely to enjoy talking things out on the spot. It is prudent to not put your Capricorn on the spot, but gently nudge them when something is on your mind. Capricorns usually don't like surprises, so if you can give yourself some time when something arises that you need to discuss with your Capricorn, you would be better served. Capricorns prefer to think things out on their own before openly discussing them and committing to a decision. If you can be patient on this matter, their trust in you and your relationship will enable them to open up quicker with time, (hopefully).
Likely to be playful when intimate, Capricorns can be counted on to enjoy the fun side of sex.
