It’s no secret that when it comes to whirlwind romances and casual flings, Capricorns tend to be at the bottom of the list: Capricorns are, after all, mostly interested in commitment.
When looking for relationships, Capricorns are usually looking for something stable.
Their reliable, faithful, and determined personalities make them more likely to look for long-term relationships than short flings, though they can go for the latter every now and then.
Because of their affinity toward commitment, Capricorns tend to be very sought-after partners, but there are more things about this zodiac sign that makes them great in a relationship.
What makes Capricorn such an excellent option for those looking for something serious?
Capricorns like to tread slowly and plan ahead, which can come off as dull to the most adventurous signs but is a definite advantage for those looking something serious.
They like to meet people before becoming involved with them so that they can judge their compatibility with other people, not only in terms of romantic attraction but also in terms of lifestyles.
It’s essential for them to feel like they can trust and rely on a potential partner, which means they can move slowly, but they move with certainty.
Capricorn’s prudent attitude stretches to their finances as well, which is always a plus on a long-term partner.
They know how to handle money well and how to use their money wisely.
Not only that, but they also tend to plan for the future, so if a particular Capricorn wants to have children, chances are they already have some funds saved for that.
The relative lack of spontaneity can be a negative to some, but if you’re looking for a reliable partner, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone better than a Capricorn.
Capricorns aren’t the fieriest zodiac signs out there, but their love always burns bright.
They might not reflect it through passionate declarations of love or public spectacle, but that doesn’t mean the emotion isn’t there.
Capricorns show their love by being giving and protective; they enjoy showing they care by dedicating their time and attention to their partner and protecting the bond they share.
This can come off as possessive, but for the most part, Capricorns are perfectly capable of finding a balance between “taking care of their partner” and “being a control freak.”
Again, perhaps a negative for the more free-spirited signs out there, but a fantastic attribute for someone who’s looking for a partner they can rely on.
Capricorns are firm adherent to the saying, “if you want something done right, do it yourself.” In fact, it might as well be their life’s motto.
Because of this, Capricorns have a noticeable “take charge” attitude that can be irresistible to some.
They’re the kind of partner that will take the initiative when making a bid couple decision, the type of person who might suggest marriage and children first, etc., etc.
A bit overwhelming for those who don’t want commitments, but the perfect kind of attitude for those looking to be swept off their feet.
Capricorns can be very tolerant and patient people, particularly when it comes to relationships.
They understand that they can come off a little too strongly at first with their desire for commitment and stability, but if they’ve found a partner they genuinely want to be with, they’ll be willing to wait for the other person to make up their mind.
Not only that, but Capricorns can be quite tolerant with quirks, strange tastes, bizarre hobbies, and the like.
They understand that everyone likes different things, and unless their partner’s quirks and preferences are endangering the stability of their relationship, they don’t see the harm in humoring them, even if they don’t understand.
As you can imagine, this tolerant and patient attitude can make for a fantastic life partner, particularly for those looking to start a family.
You’ll rarely find a more committed and dedicated parent than a Capricorn.
There’s no denying that Capricorns can come off as traditionalist and old-fashioned, but what’s wrong with that?
Traditional values, when not imposed on others, can be a beautiful thing for a relationship, particularly of both parties are looking for that kind of thing.
Looking for long-lasting commitments, strong familial relationships, stability, and a somewhat predictable life can come off as too formal to some people out there, but it’s also something many are looking for.
As a sign, Capricorns won’t usually give you a whirlwind romance, full of ups and downs, passionate discussions, and movie-worthy kisses under the rain, but they will give you the kind of comfortable, down-to-earth stability so many are looking for.
If you’re serious about starting a long-lasting relationship, Capricorns are one of your best bets.
