The key to seeking the attention of a Capricorn woman is to appeal to her ambitious side. These people are known to be very hardworking and career-oriented. So on your first couple of dates ask about her work and what are her goals for the future. Also discuss your own interests and invite her to come up with suggestions on some aspect of your work life. A Capricorn is generally very conscious of professional status and position. So while there is no need to brag about the fact that your boss praised your last project before the sales team, you may slide in that you love the view from your new office - to which incidentally you were promoted last week. Most of all, compliment your date on any professional success that she may admit to and encourage her to talk more about what drives her.

An ambitious nature, like that of your Capricorn girlfriend, is sure to enjoy activities that include a mild degree of competition. So for dates, consider venues like a bowling alley or a mini golf range. However make sure that these match up to her class and are not shoddy or hole-in-the-wall places. Also while playing, allow her to win some games since very few things upset a Capricorn as much as losing to an opponent, no matter how friendly. At the same time don’t make it obvious that you have been losing on purpose as that will hurt her sense of honor and indicate that she is not capable of winning on her own. Use the games as a way of getting her to open up and not to score a point or win a bet.

Capricorns are nothing if not practical. They have their emotions tightly under control and use their incisive logical reasoning to find their way about in the world. Their business-like approach to life might not make waves in the cocktail circuit or change the world, but it will surely take them to their goal which is all that matters in the final analysis. This is why you may not be able to impress your Capricorn girlfriend so much with bouquets of exotic orchids or a midnight picnic under the stars but will surely earn brownie points with an annual subscription to her favorite magazine or gift coupons for her preferred cosmetic brand.

Determined and industrious, the Capricorn is aptly symbolized by the Mountain Goat – a creature which strives for the top with slow but steady steps and eventually reaches there. Capricorns can go about their job with a steadfastness of purpose that is remarkable. They can put in hours of hard work at a stretch and quietly go on like that for days together because in the end they know that the reward will be worth it. So don’t be surprised if your Capricorn girlfriend cancels a date at the last minute to put in a few hours of work in the office. And this is also why Capricorns also settle rather late in life – after they have made a place for themselves in their career and earned a decent amount of professional and personal prestige.

Earth is the ruling element for Capricorns which is hardly surprising considering the down-to-earth, practical people they are. But this also means that they are rooted to the body and its desires. This makes Capricorns rather sensual people and quite passionate partners in bed. However with professional ambition driving them, especially in the early adult years, this desire for physical intimacy with partners may be put on the backburner and even repressed. While this may make for rather inhibited Capricorn girlfriend in the initial stages, over time you can be pretty certain that she will loosen up and be ready to sit back and enjoy the fruits of a relationship she has put so much effort into. In fact some Capricorns may swing from celibacy in the beginning to wild indulgence later in life – probably as a reaction to the single-minded pursuit of career prospects in early days.

A Capricorn puts much store by traditional values and long-held conventions. He or she believes that practices which have stood the test of time are the safest to follow and can be trusted to get a person ahead in personal or professional fields. So if you stick to convention and take your girlfriend through the movie-and-a-dinner routine in the early stages of dating, you won’t be much off the mark. Just make sure that you have the best seats at the movie and the dinner is at a fancy restaurant. Appearances matter a lot with Capricorns since they are attracted to visible signs of material success. At the same time, don’t go overboard with flamboyant gestures like private lounge seating at a show or a night out of town. Remember that they are conservative people at heart and are likely to such view extravagance with suspicion, especially in the early stages of a relationship.

As self-assured and self-sufficient beings, Capricorns detest signs of neediness and desperation in a partner. So while you may be over the moon in your present relationship, resist the urge to call your girlfriend around thirteen times a day and other such methods of seeking attention. She is a woman with a strong sense of individuality and insistent demands into her personal space are likely to be met with certain rebuff and even you being shown the door.

Despite her need to be in charge – of herself and her relationships – a Capricorn woman can quite easily fit into the role of a wife and mother. This is due to her strong belief in the value of traditions and the importance of accepted social norms. So while you may be pleasantly surprised to find your Capricorn girlfriend ready for a committed relationship, remember that she will have it only at her discretion and on her own terms.
