If you’re dating a Capricorn man, you’ve probably experienced the ups and downs of their personality. They’re emotionally reserved and can be hard to read.
They’re also fiercely loyal. If they fall in love with you, they’ll stay in love with you. And they’ll want to do whatever it takes to keep it that way.
But when they get jealous or insecure, you might find yourself on the receiving end of some harsh words or cold behavior. Here are some things to know about what to expect from a Capricorn man when he’s sorry.
What to expect from a Capricorn man when he’s sorry
It’s important not to push him too hard. He might not be ready yet. But if you give him time and space, he’ll eventually come around—just as soon as his stubborn pride lets go.
When he does apologize:
1) Make sure you’re willing to accept it. It may not always feel like an apology, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t one. If you’re not willing to forgive him and move on with your relationship, don’t expect him to change his mind and want to apologize again anytime soon.
2) Understand that sometimes, the way he apologizes will be different than what you’re expecting. For example, instead of apologizing for something out loud or face-to-face, he may write a letter or send flowers anonymously. The gesture still counts!
3) Give him the chance to make up for the wrongs committed against you by requesting your forgiveness. If he tries his best to make it right—no matter how big or small the mis
Sometimes you need to know whether your Capricorn man is really sorry, or just testing you.

Where does this insecurity come from?
This insecurity is a big part of Capricorn’s personality and shows up in their relationships. It stems from the fact that they work hard to make their relationships last and want to protect them. To put it simply, they’re not confident in themselves and don’t believe they need anybody but themselves.
Then, when you come along, this self-protective nature kicks in and fuels their jealousy or insecurity. They’re afraid of being vulnerable with someone else because it means letting them in emotionally–and Capricorns are very private people.
How to use the right words with a Capricorn man
If your Capricorn man says sorry, they probably mean it. But you might not know how to respond! They’re so reserved and unemotional that it can be difficult to tell what they’re feeling at any given moment.
However, there are some things you can do to show that you appreciate their apology.
Acknowledge that they’re sorry for hurting you and thank them for making the effort to talk about their feelings with you. Don’t forget, these words may be difficult for them to say at all, so make sure you give him time to talk about his emotions.
Another way to show him how much his apology is appreciated is by giving him some space. Especially if he’s been working overtime or has had a tough day, the last thing he needs is someone constantly asking questions about how he’s feeling or demanding that he spend more time with them.
A few hours of space will help him process what happened and let him feel like he has control over himself before jumping back into your life full-force.
