10 Ways to Hurt a Capricorn Man

Updated February 23, 2023

If you want to learn about hurting a Capricorn man, then you either want to make him suffer or know how to avoid causing him pain.

So, what makes a stoic, tough Capricorn guy sensitive?

A Capricorn man is skilled at concealing his true feelings, so it’s hard to tell when he’s distressed.

But if you know his personality well enough, you can figure out exactly how to hit him where it hurts – or where to avoid if you are trying to shield him from pain.

By gaining a better understanding of the typical Capricorn man’s personality, you will be able to figure out exactly what hurts him.

1. Criticize His Career

A Capricorn man cares deeply about what other people think, and his greatest source of pride is his career.

If you want to know how to make a Capricorn man happy, tell him that his job is cool and you love his work ethic.

His job and the opinions of others mean a lot to him, so it’s particularly impactful when you praise his career.

But if you want to hurt a Capricorn guy, tell him that his career is unimpressive and that you’re embarrassed to tell your friends and family what he does for a living.

This type of comment deeply offends a professional Capricorn man and it is sure to hurt his feelings and bruise his self-esteem, even if he knows you’re wrong.

2. Call Him Lazy

When a Capricorn man respects you, he wants you to think highly of him. Any insult coming from a loved one is sure to hurt him, but certain words cause him more pain than others.

A Capricorn guy is extraordinarily ambitious, and he takes pride in his strong work ethic. There is nothing a Capricorn man hates more than being called lazy.

He detests slothfulness in others and would never want anyone to think of him as lazy. It’s the worst way to insult him, even though it’s probably inaccurate.

If he takes a moment for himself to relax, he already feels guilty because he thinks he should be working all the time.

Call him a couch potato or a lazy sloth, and you are sure to cut him deeply and hurt his feelings.

3. Embarrass Him in Public

Even though they may not show it, Capricorn men worry a lot about what other people think. A great way to hurt him is by embarrassing him in public.

You could embarrass him in front of his friends, family, or total strangers. Regardless of who sees, he is sure to get uncomfortable and hurt.

An easy way to publicly embarrass a Capricorn man is with over-the-top public displays of affection.

A Capricorn man isn’t very touchy-feely, and while he might hold your hand or give you a little kiss in public, he is reluctant to go any further than that in front of others.

When a Capricorn man kisses you quickly on the cheek in public, pull him in for an intense makeout session.

This puts him in the awkward position of having to go along with your passion, which embarrasses him, or having to push you away, which also embarrasses him.

4. Keep Him From His Work

The best way to mess with a Capricorn man is by interfering with his job. It pains him when you keep him from being able to do his work and handle his responsibilities.

When a Capricorn man ignores you because he’s busy at work, interrupt him and break his concentration any way you can.

Call and text him over and over, and when he turns his cell phone on silent, start calling his work number instead.

Show up at his office and demand to speak with him. If he’s working from home, blast loud music and barge in on him frequently.

When he leaves to go work from somewhere else like a coffee shop, throw a fit and follow him there. Make it impossible for him to get anything done.

5. Call Him Boring

A Capricorn man has many wonderful qualities. He is reliable, diligent, and driven to succeed. But he is not the most exciting or adventurous person, and he knows it.

It hits a nerve when you call a Capricorn man boring because he’s always afraid of people perceiving him this way.

He’s much too cautious and practical to be a thrill-seeker, and because he looks for flaws and can be negative other people might view him as a bit of a wet blanket.

He’s the kind of guy who always reminds everyone to put on their seatbelts when they’re going for a joy ride and tells his friends to drink one glass of water per every alcoholic beverage they consume.

If you really want to hit him where it hurts, call your Capricorn man boring and act exasperated by his lack of audacity.

This hurts him so much because, deep down, he believes it to be true and it makes him self-conscious.

6. Don’t Give Him Alone Time

Although each person is different, some zodiac signs are more likely to be introverted than others. Capricorn is among the more introverted astrological signs.

No matter how much he loves someone, a Capricorn man needs some time alone, even without his partner, to rest and regroup.

If your Capricorn man is distancing himself, he probably just needs a little breathing room to relax and recharge alone.

When your Capricorn man is suddenly distant, you can hurt him by doing everything you can to keep him from having time to himself.

Bombard him with calls and texts, or show up at his house uninvited. Storm in and make yourself at home, and don’t give him any time alone to unwind.

He will become agitated and anxious when he doesn’t get that vital time to himself to rest.

7. Throw a Dramatic Fit

Every zodiac sign belongs to one of four natural elements: earth, air, water, or fire. A sign’s natural element tells us a great deal about that sign’s personality and disposition.

Capricorn is one of the three earth signs of the zodiac, and earth signs are known for being rational, logical, and practical.

Earth signs are not very sensitive or dramatic, and they get extremely uncomfortable when faced with a big display of emotions.

You can hurt a Capricorn man by cornering him and confronting him with a temper tantrum that he can’t ignore or avoid.

When a Capricorn man is mad at you and calls you out for something you did wrong, turn it around on him and throw a huge fit.

When a Capricorn man hugs you and tries to calm you down, keep pushing him away and don’t forgive him.

If you do this in public, especially in front of his family or friends, it will hurt him even more because it will embarrass him.

This one weird trick is the only way to attract a Capricorn man.

8. Call Him an Outcast

Because he can be so cold and unemotional, a Capricorn man is often a lone wolf. He has a close circle of friends, but he’s not the type to be the life of the party or have a million acquaintances.

A Capricorn guy knows that he’s not the most sociable, gregarious person and it makes him feel self-conscious.

He hates it when someone calls him an outcast or an outsider because that’s how he already feels most of the time.

If you want to hurt a Capricorn guy deeply, mock his social skills and make fun of him for having so few friends.

Tell him that the ways he acts around other people is weird and that everyone is talking about him behind his back. This will cut him to his core because it reinforces one of his deepest insecurities.

9. Criticize His Friends

A Capricorn man cares a lot about what other people think, but he cares the most about the opinions of his family and friends.

If you’re dating a Capricorn guy, he will want you to meet his group of buddies early on so that he can find out what they think of you.

You definitely need to impress his friends if you want him to respect you and keep seeing you.

But if he never introduces you to his friends, it’s one of the clear signs a Capricorn man is using you.

A Capricorn man is a very loyal and steady friend. He doesn’t get close to too many people, but the few good friends he makes he keeps for life.

If you criticize or make fun of any of his friends, it’s like attacking him and it hurts him a lot. He takes it personally and it makes him question his friendships.

This secret text message will make a Capricorn man addicted to you.

10. Make Him Jealous

Although it takes a lot to make a Capricorn man jealous, he is the possessive type, and he doesn’t want to share his partner with anyone else.

When a Capricorn man likes you, he doesn’t want to see you with another man.

If you want to hurt him, you should get him to admit his feelings for you, then publicly reject him by flirting with someone else in front of him.

Between the public humiliation, rejection, and embarrassment, your Capricorn man will be so hurt that he won’t know what to do with himself.
