When a Capricorn man is serious about somebody, he does many things to show that person how much he cares about them.
He won’t do over-the-top romantic gestures but his feelings will be obvious if you know what to look for.
Capricorn men are busy people. They are often workaholics and they take their work very seriously.
If he takes his relationship with you seriously as well, he’ll at least attempt to prioritize you over his work when he can.
Don’t expect big romantic gestures from a Capricorn man. He’ll plan out dates and make time for you. He’ll even be physically affectionate (in private!). His affection is a more reserved, quiet kind, though.
He’ll also try to open up to you more. This is a big deal for him, as he generally avoids emotions.
